Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge: Friday September 23, 2016.

Here are my oddball photos from the past week for Cee’s Oddball Photo challenge.

Meekah lying in the clothes basket:

Oven Sticks from Fort Worth Fire and Northwest Fire Departments (I’ve had these a while and kind of want to see if other fire departments have them to hand out).


See you next week, hopefully – all depends on what oddball photos I have to share 😉.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: Sunday September 25, 2016

Welcome; Pull up a chair and join me.  Hope you’ve all had a nice week.

I took a nice bike ride this morning.  My original plan was to make myself up a cup of coffee and  write my coffee share (hosted by Diana at PartTime Monster Blog) post, right after my morning ride.  Well I made my coffee, but then hubby needed my assistance with putting the rest of his chair back together (we had taken some parts off for cleaning).  As we were doing that, I remembered I had stuff in the washer that needed to be hung up (before I forgot all about it); And then there was the blanket from our bed that was due a washing….  Finally got that all squared away and am sitting in my comfy chair enjoying my coffee and reading & writing blogs (currently writing as you probably guessed).

The past couple of days, I’ve been dealing with an irritating tickle in my throat.  No soreness or anything, just the tickle.  If I try to ignore it, it gets worse and I ended up in a spastic coughing loop (a symptom of my cough-variant asthma).  Not exactly a fun experience.  The cough, at that point is weak and I can’t get in a deep enough breath to get a good cough in and yet I can’t stop with the weak cough.  On the flip side, actually coughing doesn’t do much either unless I cough so hard I get light-headed & dizzy, and even that doesn’t do much good for very long.   Yeah thrilling, not to mention tiring.

So, enough of the complaining.  I’ve heard back from the local Fire Department and they recieved my application requesting a ride-along.  It’s suppose to be scheduled sometime around or after late October – Waiting to hear back.  I’m also waiting to hear from the local Sheriff’s Department, as well, about doing a ride-along.  I’ve done (a while back) with our local Police and was trying to see about another – no response on that yet.

Hell’s Kitchen just started back up and so I’m watching that again (via Hulu).  Master Chef just ended about a week or so ago.  I’ve also been watching old Top Chef shows.   I really enjoy watching various cooking challenge & cooking reality shows.  Just wish I could view more.  Unfortunately we don’t have cable, and so I’m pretty well limited to what comes across on Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube.

I also have some Mary Kay orders to finish packaging up today, and prepare to be shipped tomorrow.  

I think that’s pretty much the all of it.  Let me know about your week.  Wishing you all a beautiful and wonderful week.

Daily Prompt: Silence 

Daily Prompt: Silence
Is there really such a thing as pure silence??  Even in the still silence of the early morning or late night, there are sounds all around – sounds of nature.  

Only to a deaf person (not hard of hearing, but completely deaf) is there complete silence, and even in the silence they “hear”.  Hear through the sensations they feel in their body, the things they see with their eyes and smell with their nose.  In the silence they live in, it could be said the deaf hear more.

In Other Words (challenge)

I don’t know where I am going, but I am on my way.” ~ Carl Sandburg
When I saw this quote, as part of the “In Other Words challenge, a song immediately popped into my head.  At first I couldn’t place it.  All that I could come up with, off the top of my head, was the first sentence and the tune.  I just knew I had heard the song before.  After some searching, I finally found it…  “Here I go again” by Whitesnake

I don’t know where life is taking me.  I don’t know what’s in store.   I only know that I’m moving forward.  Sometimes with direction, sometimes drifting aimlessly about.  No matter what, I’m on my way to somewhere in my life…  Even if that somewhere is here.

Share Your World: 2016 – Week 38

Here’s this week’s SYW 2016 – Week 38 hosted by Cee Neur.

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger? 

I don’t necessarily mind hugs and don’t mind giving hugs if I know the person… But I don’t see myself as a big hugger

What is your least favorite Candy?

I’m not a fan of cherry flavored candy – tastes medicine-y.  

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

 Spending time at events having to do with things like Fire, EMS, Police.

List of Favorite Smells: What smells do you love? Whether it’s vanilla scented candles or the smell of coffee in the morning or the smell of a fresh spring rain…make a list of all the things you love for a little aromatherapy

  • Candles
  • Flowers
  • Citrus smells

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am always thankful for our police, fire, and military.  

I am looking forward to getting my next Mary Kay order and delivering/re-shipping said order.
