Musical Monday # 102

Musical Monday I was introduced to Musical Monday by Delores who copied the meme from another site. I think it’s a fun way to show off some of the music we like and brighten up our Mondays at the same time.  I’ll be finding my clips on you tube, so will simply credit that site since there are often so many versions of everything and I wouldn’t want to accidentally credit the wrong artist. Today’s clip is: Tina Turner Nutbush City Limits Who doesn't remember this?

Sunday Selections # 278

Welcome back to Sunday Selections! This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs. The rules are very simple:- 1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title 2. link back to me, River , somewhere in your post 3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted. 4. hop on over to Elephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.   I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week we're taking a look at my garden. Again. everything has grown since the weather cooled down a bit, I'll need to turn this pot again so a different side grows towards the sun. the dwarf blue chalk sticks has grown so much faster than the regular one down in the garden. If you look at just one of the stems here, that's the size it was

Wednesday's Words on a Friday

On Wednesdays, assorted people have been taking monthly turns at putting up a selection of six (or twelve) words which is called “Words for Wednesday”. We have taken over this meme from Delores, who had been having computer problems. This month the meme continues here , supplied by Mark Koopmans. Next month, June, the words can be found here , on my blog. Essentially the aim is to encourage us to write.     Each week we are given a choice of prompts: which can be words, phrases, music or images.    What we do with those prompts is up to us:   a short story, prose, a song, a poem, or treating them with ignore... Some of us put our creation in comments on the post, and others post on their own blog.   We would really like it if as many people as possible joined in with this fun meme. If you are posting on your own blog - let us know so that we can come along and read your masterpiece.  I’m hopeless at poetry so I always do a story. It’s a fun challenge…w

Thursday Thoughts # 89

from Waging War by April White: "It is as though my purpose for living was just torn out of the book and I don't know what happens next." "We take what happened and we make ourselves into people we can look at in mirrors without flinching." from Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor: "Perhaps Fate laid out your life for you like a dress on a bed, and you could either wear it or go naked." from Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor: "And he could catch her hand across the table just to hold it, and they could talk, and discover each other layer by layer." Today's Thought: discover each other layer by layer. This is something I've only ever read about in books.  Someone meets their soulmate or the love of their life or maybe they just grow up with their best friend and they know everything there is to know about each other.  They talk and tell their secrets and fears, their hopes and dreams.  They talk
