JustJoJan & WOD 01-21-21 The Shaman

The shaman had a vendetta against his foes, so he cast a spell that would render them speechless for a month. This way, he could gather all the shamans together and come up with a plan for total destruction. Once his plan was put in place, the head shaman would relocate to parts unknown.

I once went into the city
To get some shoes-they were pretty
Winklepickers they were though
Made my feet sore, you might know
Too pointy, and also itty bitty!


Ha! This silly limerick was brought to you by Linda G Hill‘s JusJoJan prompt and Melanie B Cee’s Word of the Day prompt!

JustJoJan & WOD 01-18-21 10 Wishes

Good morning and welcome to the wildly anticipated (just kidding) blog post this Monday the 18th, 2021!

If I could have just 10 wishes….

  1. I’d wish for more time in the day to do my Diamond Art.
  2. I’d wish I was already through my transcription course and working my first job.
  3. I’d wish we had won the lottery over the weekend and be on our way to our forever home.
  4. I’d wish we didn’t have to wear masks or socially distance anymore.
  5. I’d wish my dad didn’t have Parkinson’s and could still talk to me!
  6. I’d wish my situation was different and my dad could move in with me and then go wherever we end up going.
  7. I’d wish we had already found and purchased the perfect spot by the perfect lake (or ocean) and lived there already.
  8. I’d wish my stalkers would leave me alone. (Like the ones on Words with Friends, Instagram, and whoever has been blowing my phone up with sicko messages)
  9. I’d wish my hubby was retired and doing something he loved, and that he was pain free to enjoy it!
  10. I’d wish I didn’t feel so guilty and anxious all the time.

These are in no particular order, they just came to me this way. As you can see, there’s a story or two lurking 👀 in my list of wishes. 😜

Happy Monday everyone! Oh, one more thing…

Today is the 300th day in a row for my Spanish lessons on Duolingo! I wish I was speaking it already!! I have a long way to go, but I am reading and comprehending a lot!

What do you wish for today?

Yesterday, we took a drive to Runaway Bay in Bridgeport, Tx to look at lake lots. There was no snow, but snow sometimes makes me think of clouds, so here is a cool cloud we saw along the way that to me, looks like a dragon! (Try to ignore the reflections in the glass.)

When we got back, after visiting a couple of friends in other cities, my latest issue of Theraputic Thymes was here and my article was so beautifully done and it spans 12 pages! Y’all! I am so stoked, you have to check it out! I’ve been writing for TT for about 4 years now, and this is the best one yet. On top of that, there are some really good articles besides mine in there with subjects ranging from bees and why they need weeds for their diets to the importance of traditions in a non-traditional time.

Therapeutic Thymes is a quarterly magazine dedicated to promoting a more natural therapeutic and sustainable way of life. Subscribe today@therapueticthymes.com

A one year (4 issues) subscription is $15.

By the way, my article — since this issue was all about traditions — was how to start the year off right with keto beverages and snacks. The team at TT chose the perfect pictures to compliment the recipes and I just loved the layout. 😍

You can also follow them on social media at Facebook@theraputicthymes.

Have a blessed Sunday and I’ll see you all tomorrow 🤗

“Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: ‘first thing.’ Start your post with the words, ‘first thing’ and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!”

First thing I had to pee. Sorry, folks, but we all do it, don’t we? Haha, but then, the first thing I did was make some apple cider vinegar tea because I was BAD last night! When I’m bad, I drink that before I ever get my coffee. I call it my “mistake eraser” but really it is my detox method for when I’ve eaten or drank too much sugar or alcohol. Last night was “date night” and I might have overindulged just a bit. (I know, I know, we normally do date night on Thursday’s, but we couldn’t bring ourselves to go until last night because he was too tired and I had been with my dad longer than usual, so we stayed in.)


You really can’t blame me with the times being what they are, can you? I mean, then pile on family stress, a crappy day, or whatever else might be going on…like family drama and blam! The drinking might commence. Last night’s beverage of choice was — you might have guessed — tequila! Or, to kill ya, lol! It wasn’t as bad as my younger, dumber days, but still…

Dave and I came home from our typical date night dinner at Frijoles and played many games of pool — the new pool cues he bought us a couple of weeks ago are awesome btw — and called it a night around 11. We were sufficiently numb and pretty tired from not sleeping much the night before. Last thing we did was not for a family audience, so I’ll leave that up to your wild imaginations. 😘 😜
