Share Your World (2014) – Week 28

Have you ever been a participant in a parade? What did you do?
I’ve been in a few parades, years ago, in high school. Back then I played in the marching band for two years. One year we played in the Starlight Parade, the other we played in the Rose Parade. Both years, we played in at least one “Good Neighbors Day” parade. Also, one year (my Sophmore, I believe) we went to Victoria BC played in a parade. What did I play? Clarinet.

If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?
good question. I might go, considering the gas was available to get there. Not sure I’ve ever been to an opera.

Why did you start your blog?
to share my thoughts and opinions as well as poems & writings, the latter two of which I’m moving to a new blog – “Taini’s Writings

What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)
one family tradition that stands out is helping my father make sponge cake each year. There’s no leavening in sponge cake. The “leavening” comes from the 9 (or is it 12) egg whites that are beaten till peaks can be formed. Any sudden movements or noise can cause the cake to fall (sort of like Angel Food Cake, I believe it is). Anyone doing either of the two above is sure to get an ear-full from the cake maker.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
My son came home from 2 week stay with grandpa. Had quite an adventure on way home from the airport. Grateful we all made it home safe. Also, yesterday, my son completed one of the 2 requirements needed to finish 2nd class rank (not counting the scout master meeting & board of review stuff).

Sunday Stills: The Letter B

There really wasn’t much I could find around here to photograph and post for the letter B. I did, however, come across this beaded necklace made by an old school friend of mine.

The pendant is my birthstone – peridot, which was given to me years before the necklace you see in the photo was made.

#WWBH Writer Wednesday Blog Hop July 16, 2014

Tena Carr:

Writer Wednesday Blog Hop posts will now be on my new blog Taini’s Writings. I hope you’ll join me over there :-)

Here is the first Writer Wednesday Blog Hop posted to this blog.  

This week the hop is being led by Heather who is taking time out from her busy job of being a mom of two (one of which is a newborn) to run this week’s hop.  


It seems like an age since I last hosted the Writer Wednesday blog hop, but here I am again to take the lead.

It’s taking much longer than I anticipated to adjust to life as a mother of two, and still make time for my own things. You’d think I learnt this the last time, that young baby’s take up a lot of time and energy!

I’ve been finding it hard to get my rhythm back in writing anything, and what better way to get myself going again than with this wonderful weekly hop.

Before we get down to this…

Thinking of Starting Another Blog – Thoughts?!?

Lately, I can’t seem to get my mind of the thought of starting another (new) blog.  Yes,  you heard me right…  Another one, in addition to the 3 that I already have.  This new blog would be specifically about my writings as well as some thoughts on writing  and some books reviews (as I have time/ opportunity presents itself.

For one, all my Writer Wednesday Blog Hop stuff (including kick-off’s) would move over to the new blog, as well as Camp NaNoWiMo and other Challenges specific to writing (my blogging and photo challenges would stay here).  Also, moving over to the new blog would be any short stories, poems, and otherwise that I’ve done attempted.  I’ll keep the old stuff here (linking to it in new blog), but any new stuff would be over on the new blog.

So let me know your honest thoughts – Good, Bad, Indifferent, Otherwise.  Would people (you) follow on the new blog if I create it….  And then the next question.

What do I name it?

Mixture of Thoughts, Poems, and Short Stories
