Good morning, friends! Today is Revenge of the Fifth! (Star Wars). Grab your tea, iced or hot, and let’s talk! Make yourselves comfy. 🙂
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: Michelle, over at Putting My Feet in the Dirt, has awesome writing prompts for May. She took book titles and gave them a twist. You might have seen a couple from me already. It’s a lot of fun. If you’re looking for something different, give them a try!!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I still can’t believe it’s May already. The first four months have flown by so quickly. But with spring comes the beautiful flowers and green everything, oh and of course, hay fever! The only thing I dislike about spring. Here’s another shot of my azaleas, blooming away!!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: it’s been a tough week for me, health wise. Most of you know my condition (Transverse Myelitis), which is flaring up. The biggest problem is stress. That’s when it gets really bad, and right now I have a ton of it. I am dealing with it best I can, but add in depression and just an overall feeling of malaise, and you have me in a nutshell. However…I do not let that define me. Sometimes it just feels good to let it out.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: like I mentioned last week, I have a new “thingy” on my blog called “What Am I?”. Every Thursday I put up a riddle and you try to guess what it is I am describing. I would love it if you played along. Okay, yes, I’m begging! LOL The first one had a few of you participating. this past one (link above) not so much. So how about giving it a try. For me. Please? 😁
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I am still finding blogs that our dear WordPress took away from me. I can’t believe how many of them have disappeared from my follow list. Then of course, there’s the pingback issue happening now. The reader has been better (I probably just jinxed it). No large gaps between posts. However, some of you STILL don’t show up in it!! It drives me nuts. Have you encountered any of these issues?
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I made a huge change in my life. I have always believed in God but strayed from the church because of the horrible problems with the priests. It turned me off and turned me away from God’s house. But Neil and I have been attending Alyssa’s church now, and I have given myself over to God. He has a plan for me, and I will follow it. It’s something that was severely lacking in my life, and I needed to find a way back. I believe I have.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I tried driving again. Alyssa needed to have her car serviced, so I had to follow her there. I’m still paying for it. I really hope this doesn’t mean I won’t be able to drive anymore. That would devastate me. When I first got sick (2006), I spent a year indoors, due to agoraphobia, not to be confused with arachnophobia! 🕷🕸 I never want to deal with that again, but being stuck home is very close to it.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: Friday night is pizza night at our house. We go to our favorite pizzeria/restaurant, Primo Pizza! Cesar, Eddie, Ari and the gang are all so awesome. This week, Alyssa picked the kind of pizza. She chose a white pie with fresh tomatoes, garlic and basil. OMG it was heavenly.
Now you might be wondering about the pup who photo bombed the picture. That would be Snippy. No, it’s not a typo. Not Snoopy but Snippy. He has been Alyssa’s “therapy pet” for a few years now. He has his own personality, and quite snarky I might add. Right now you’re thinking, okay this family has lost it. Seriously, Snippy has gotten Lys through some tough times. He was there at every hospital stay, every illness. So, we take him with us when we go out. It turns out to be a very funny time!
As for the week ahead:
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: Another rainy week ahead, although Monday and Wednesday look to be okay. Of course, that could change in a raindrop! How about you? What’s the weather been like in your neck of world?
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: it’s time to be on my way. Church is calling and grocery shopping will follow. Have a blessed week ahead! When we meet again, next Sunday, it will be Mother’s Day, here in the states. I can’t wait! ❤
