The First Day of Spring

I love a writing prompt. Over at yoyoliving, we've been presented with a visual writing prompt and I am all about it. Click over there and participate! The more the merrier, I say! Here's my story... It was the first day of spring and it was gorgeous outside. No way was I going to let … Continue reading The First Day of Spring

Question of the Week #128

You are at a lake with some friends; the sun is warm and the water is cold. Going into the water would temporarily chill you but you know that later the warm sun would be even more enjoyable and you would be glad you had gone in. Would you take the plunge? To quote a … Continue reading Question of the Week #128

No, I Didn’t Go See Fireworks Tonight

To all of my fellow Americans, happy Independence Day! If fireworks are your thing, I hope you are having a lovely evening watching all those explosions in the sky. Personally, I'm just as content sitting at home reading or watching a movie or obsessing over the Big Brother live feeds. It's not that I actively … Continue reading No, I Didn’t Go See Fireworks Tonight

So Many Questions: Part I

I'm always willing to rehash old blog posts or ideas that I've blatantly stolen from other people's blogs. It's not that I don't feel particularly creative on a given day. It's probably more of a laziness thing. But I don't feel like I'm lazy. I just, more often than not, get home from work and … Continue reading So Many Questions: Part I

Not too long ago, I was able to thumb through a friend's copy of the new illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I took a picture of it and posted it online, intending to let the world know that I wanted a copy of it as well. Along with that post, I … Continue reading The 5 Most Beautiful Things I’ve Ever Seen

Day Seventeen

An Art Piece Sometimes, when the counselors get together for meetings, we take time to do some of our own therapeutic exercises. A couple weeks ago, we were asked to create mandalas. This is the one I did... It's nowhere near an exact representation of any place I've ever been. But it depicts the kind … Continue reading Day Seventeen

Day Fifteen

My Dream House Honestly, I don't often think about what could be considered my dream house. I know the things that I'd like to have, but I don't have any delusions that those things will ever truly be a reality. I want a house by a lake. I don't care how many bedrooms the place … Continue reading Day Fifteen

Capture the Flag

Remember that retreat I went on a couple weeks ago? I mentioned that we played Capture the Flag as part of our weekend festivities. Yesterday, I posted a picture of myself that was taken after that game, when I was pretty much declared the MVP. But I haven't explained, in detail, why someone with no … Continue reading Capture the Flag

Walking in Truth

I've said it before and I'll say it again... When I grow up, I want to live at the lake. Though, would I really love it as much if I were living there alone? All of my experiences of temporarily staying in lake houses have always involved being there with groups of people. Particularly with … Continue reading Walking in Truth
