Almost guilty

via the Daily Prompt: Hopeful Me, myself and I are rockin' out over here. Today has been truly harmonious. I almost feel guilty for getting so much enjoyment from so little. Key word here is almost. I got to be me today. It was great. I so wish that people could see this side of... Continue Reading →



via the Daily Prompt: Mope The word mope makes me sad. I don't think I've ever done much moping. As mentioned in previous posts, I usually manage to keep myself pretty positive and well-entertained 🙂 I have been called a 'Christmas wimp' by my mother, though-- 3 times in one day, Christmas Day. For attempting... Continue Reading →

Today’s the day

via the Daily Prompt: Festive I was happy to wake up this morning. I had the misfortune to have three nightmares in a row Christmas morning. So, to wrestle myself firmly into reality and realize that it was finally the day -- and how badly I really had to pee, was genuine relief. I still... Continue Reading →


via the Daily Prompt: Bounty I watched a two-part documentary series on Knowledge about the rise and fall of the Incan empire. Theirs was a bountiful existence, they had it all figured out. For a little while anyways. Their mistake was in trusting the Spanish, who repaid Incan hospitality by ambushing, wounding and kidnapping their... Continue Reading →
