Writing Prompts

Thoughtful Thursday 02-04-21

I’ll take Jilly up on the whole Thoughtful Thursday thing with an announcement and a reminder that yes, I did get rid of my other blog (Alternative Lifestyle) but I left the Pinterest board up! So you can still go and get lots of tasty recipes, ideas, tips and tricks any time you want to right here!

This is a screen shot of my Pinterest boards

Ignore the old website at the bottom of my profile, I can’t seem to get it off right now. I’m working from my iPad, not my laptop, so I’ll fix that later.

I guess I’m still getting over the virus because, while I feel fine, I slept in til 7:50 this morning! Ack! So much work to do and so little time. Never fear, I will make a dent in it, I always do. Naturally, because I took my other website down, I’m getting hit up by folks on LinkdIn now. 😔 It never fails, does it?

I had a horrible nightmare last night, maybe that was why I couldn’t seem to get up. Every time I woke, I thought of it again and pushed it away to go back to sleep. When I finally woke up, the doggies were excited, like they were ready to get out of that closed up room themselves! I won’t speak of the nightmare, but I do need to check in with my youngest. That’s all I will say about that.

I discovered a new recipe for baked oatmeal with no oats in it!! I’m so excited to make it, because it uses collagen peptides in the recipe and I actually have that for once! The recipe comes from All Day I Dream About Food and the secret is coconut and almonds ground to the size of oatmeal. If you check out my Pinterest page, l stuck it to my board. I’ll let you know how it was once I make it, but first I have to go to the store because I’m out of shredded coconut, darn the luck!

Well, that’s enough for now on this gloomy looking Thursday. What happened to the sun that was there when I woke up? It will be back later, along with a howling wind according to my weather app!

Peace out peeps!

Word of the Day Challenge


WOD Challenge 3-16-20 Kick Up Your Heels

Happy Monday Everyone!

Despite the serious nature of what is going on surrounding COVID-19, I think some dancing, game playing, and craft creating might be good indoor activities we can embrace to keep busy and keep our spirits up.

I say “kick up your heels” and maybe turn on some energizing music, dance around your living room, cook some new recipes…there are plenty of things to do while you’re possibly sheltered in place.

Adult coloring books, Diamond Art Painting, make some crafts like jewelry or shell projects, these things can be done alone or with your kids.

Check out my Pinterest page and find everything from great new recipes to cool exercises to freelancing tips.

Read some good books. Read with your kids. Read and/or write on Medium.

Crochet or knit a new project.

Thoroughly clean your house (more fun with music).

Write in a journal, write letters and cards to friends, (if you feel like you can’t visit them right now), start a blog, learn something new on Skillshare. (Both are free)

Most of all, spend some time tapping into your spiritual side, pray, read your bible and ask God for the miracle of wiping out this virus as quickly as possible!!
