Hello blogosphere!

Well, I have been threatening to return and here I am.  Trying some easier, work my way back posts to get going. I am reading more posts too. I will get there!

Not because this blog is at all “all about me”, but to start, I am going to take a Share Your World challenge from Cee at ceenphotography.com

Are you usually late, early, or right on time?   My goal is to be just a tad early, but it doesn’t always happen. I hate to hurry, so I always try to allow lots of time and I am fortunate that my schedule usually allows that.

If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?   Definitely poems. For the most part, the few that I have written just come to me. Generally, I wake up with them on my mind.

Where did you live at age 10?   I lived in Kansas City and moved from one house to another that year. It was traumatic because I came home from camp and my house was almost empty! I did not know anything about the plan to move.  I have moved many times since then, and currently live in Bend, Oregon.

Would you rather be able to fly or breathe under water?   This answer seems a bit morbid…I am tempted to say breathe under water, just in case, because I think drowning would be horrible. That said, I would rather be able to fly. Oh the places you could go and the things you could see from such a wonderful vantage point! Oh, btw, I am also afraid of very high places…go figure!

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?   Last week, I attended a beautiful baby shower for a young friend who is almost to complete a high-risk pregnancy. I am grateful for the eminent success of this situation and the friends that were brought together for the event.

Coming up? Who knows…it is a great adventure and anything could happen. Right now, I know we will be dining with friends that we love, so I will say that is what I am looking forward to.

If you did, thanks for reading. I will be easing in with some more of these simpler “follow the leader” type posts until I can get my own juices back in the groove!

Happy blogging all!

  1. Bend is a booming town compared to what it used to be. It has seen such amazing growth. My first introduction to that area was when I met my husband back in the early ’60’s. That is great that your friend has made it this far with a high-risk pregnancy. That is so wonderful. I’ve never been in a hot air balloon. I think I would like to do that some day.

  2. Welcome back! I was wondering where you have been. I’ve had so much to share from my journey through cancer with my husband but my posts have been few and far between lately. I’m resting and pondering a lot in my heart lately and until I’m ready to share more, I’ll be catching up on my reading. I’m glad I landed here tonight. Happy writing!!

  3. Glad you are back! 🙂 It was interesting to read your answers to these questions. Your current home looks beautiful. Ps – Did I understand correctly that you’ve been in a hot air baloon? I never have, but might have to try it at some point!

  4. I like those questions you answered. Those kinds of questions are great ways of getting to know each other. Glad you are back!!

  5. It must have been scary to come home to a house with nothing in it. I feel for you as a kid. Thanks for sharing.

  6. So glad you are here!!! really enjoyed this piece, I was glad to lean more about you! I have found it amazing that I have made so many good friends here on wordpress, when I started my blog at the insistence of a good writer friend, I never expected to make so many personal connections on what I thought was an impersonal writing media, happily I was wrong! much light and love to you and keep on WRITING!!!

  7. What a lovely post, I remember moving when I was about the same age, I lost one of my favourite toys! it was traumatic at the time. There are some wonderful things making their way across the pond and baby showers are one of them – it is such a lovely thing to do! I am glad things are going well for her.

    It is lovely to hear from you x
