I’m still cleaning up the blog, trying to combat link rot. Somehow, I fell into looking at the draft posts. This one is from 2009 and I haven’t the foggiest notion as to why I didn’t publish it. Today’s prompt is from Barnes & Noble’s Facebook page: September is National Literacy Month. What book got you hooked […]
Plinky asked, “What’s at the end of a rainbow?” Do they truly end? I’ve never found the end of a rainbow, so I’m not at all sure. Until I see for myself, I’m not saying.
Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt: How do you feel about sky diving? I feel that it is a pursuit best left to adrenaline junkies, and people who have to do it for their careers. I’m glad parachutes exist, but I sincerely hope that I won’t ever find myself in need of one! If I board a plane, […]
Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt: Would you ever go bungee jumping? No way! For one thing, I am definitely NOT an adrenaline junky. For another, I cannot imagine that the JERK when one reaches the end of the cord and gets pulled back up is a very good feeling. I already have chronic pain problems, so I […]
Another NaBloPoMo prompt: Do you like scary movies that make you jump? I’m not old enough to watch scary movies! I find them far too frightening, indeed, nightmare-inducing. Sam required that I watch The Crow with him when we’d just started dating him (I can’t remember why anymore) and, like a fool, I didn’t refuse absolutely. […]
Back to the NaBloPoMo prompts: What do you do to cope when you’re nervous? I have a whole mess of diagnoses, including post-traumatic stress disorder and social anxiety disorder, so I feel jumpy and nervous fairly often. I’m on medication that helps, and I have Ativan that I can take if I must for panic […]
Plinky asked, “Would you say that you enjoy driving?” Not really. I’ve never been one of those people who gets in the car just to go for a drive. I use vehicles solely as tools in order to get from one place to another. I miss them sorely when I don’t have ready access, though.
I hope it was as wonderful for y’all as it was for us. While Daddy was taking a nap, I did a little work on the site here, continuing the process of migrating things from the old format into WordPress. It’s going to take more time, but eventually, all the pages will be uniform. Really! If […]
Plinky asked, “When was the last time you enjoyed the great outdoors?” Does a suburban pool count? Because I was in one today, playing with my niece and nephews, chatting with my brother and sister-in-law and parents. It was a lovely part of our Father’s Day weekend celebration. It has been a few years since […]
Today’s NaBloPoMo prompt: “Is the glass half-full or half-empty?” It’s half-full, and things are getting better all the time. Last night as I was sleeping I dreamt—marvelous error!— that I had a beehive here inside my heart. And the golden bees were making white combs and sweet honey from my old failures. –Antonio Machado
