Good morning, friends! It’s Memorial Day weekend, here in the states. On Monday, we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice defending our freedom. God bless them. ❤ Grab your tea, iced or hot, make yourselves comfy and let’s talk! 🙂
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: if you haven’t seen me liking or commenting on your posts, please tell me. I am still trying to find everyone that WordPress unfollowed. It’s very frustrating because some of you I have been following since I began almost six years ago. Please drop me a comment so I know and I can follow again.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: hubby and I had a wonderful overnight with Stella the Chihuahua. She is such a good girl. Except when she woke me up at 2:45AM to let me know she peed on her wee wee pad. I’m sure she was hoping for a treat! Then she wanted to play. I finally calmed her down and she went back to sleep until about 7:30AM. I miss having a dog of our own, but right now it’s not an option. So, I will take Stella, or any other dog Lys wants to bring by, any day, so I can play!!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I got my first rejection letter from a magazine, on a poem I sent them. It’s okay though, because I decided to share with you to see what your reaction would be. It was wonderful, and in the long run, that’s what really matters to me. If I can’t capture your attention, then why am I writing? ❤
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: it was a rainy week (again), but this time we had some very strong storms. Extreme wind, thunder and lightning (my favorite part), and heavy rains. Thankfully, it seems to be behind us now and we have nice weather coming in. It’s supposed to be in the 90’s today! Talk about one extreme to the other. Mother Nature is really off this year.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: Thursday was my son’s birthday. It’s hard to believe 32 years have passed. I still remember when we brought him home. He’s grown into a fine man and I couldn’t be prouder. He has worked his way up the corporate ladder, for a major retail company, and is now a manager. He’s been with the company for 15 years! Wow.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: my rhododendron is in full bloom and I am just loving it! Last week I showed you the rhodo from the church gardens. Mine are very different. They are a light purple, which are the common ones you see around my neighborhood. I don’t care what color they are, I just love the plant!!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: actually, ask you, what does it take to get people to review your books? I have sold many copies of my new book, and of course, since it’s through Amazon, I have no idea who purchased it. But no reviews. 😦 All I keep thinking is, Oh my God, they hate it. I’d love to hear from your authors who have tons of reviews. Perhaps a little coaching from you would help me.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: we had a nice day yesterday, at a BBQ at our friends from church. We joked it was “The Bates Motel” because that’s their last name. Lots of laughs, lots of stories, just good people and good food. At the end, Maricel, the hostess, called all the girl’s over and asked us to pick pink or blue. I thought it was turning into a baby shower! But, no…it turned into…
The bunnies play “Jesus Love Me, This I Know”. Love it!
As for the week ahead:
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: it’s a busy week ahead, between doctor’s appointments, bible study, and who knows what else will hit me when I least expect it. I have the neurologist on Tuesday. Please throw some good vibes my way, so I get answers!!
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, then pizza! What’s your favorite? Have a blessed week ahead, my friends! ❤
