Back to Work

I just went back to work after being off for about three weeks. Needless to say, I’m very tired at the moment. So, this is about all the blog post I can do right now.

I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Old Shows Are New Again

I’m re-watching Lost Girl and it’s been so long since I watched it the first time, that I’ve actually forgotten a lot. It’s rather like watching the whole thing for the first time. Which is quite nice.

Plus, being able to watch the episodes in quick succession makes the whole storyline fit together much better. I am really loving this particular binge session.

Have a relaxing weekend everyone!

Creative Writing: A Poem About the Weather

I’d like to share a poem that I wrote at the beginning of the year.

 

The Wind

Its beastly bellows sweep through the holler,

like a dragon searching for its lost gold,

never to escape from the twists and plunges

these hills hide in their bosom, trees catching

hold with greedy fingers, unwilling to release

their captive until, worn down to shadows,

it passes like a sigh against the window,

not even alerting the dogs to its presence.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Time for Seasons to Change

Summer has been great. It’s also been unbearably hot. Needless to say, I am ready for fall already.

I just got my nails done and they’re like sparkly pumpkins.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I’ve embraced my inner witch.

I can’t wait for oversize sweaters, leggings, and boots. Autumn, here I come.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Labor Day weekend!

Writer’s Block

I don’t know what to write about today. Things have been a little hectic around here lately and I’ve been trying to stay focused so I don’t forget anything important. However, I’m not quite ready to write about that yet.

So, I’m left with my dilemma of not really having anything to write about at the moment. That’s unfortunate for a blog.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see if I have anything to write about next week.

Have a great weekend all!

Streaming at Its Best

This past Prime Day, I bought an Amazon Fire TV Stick. I’ve wanted to get one for a while, but just couldn’t bring myself to spend $40 on it. Luckily, it only cost me $10. A much better price.

It took me a month to get around to setting it up, but I did and it’s working great so far. I’m super happy to finally be able to watch Amazon Prime Video on my TV instead of a tablet.

I’ve got some great TV days ahead.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Sunny Days

It’s just too beautiful outside today to stay inside.

So, I’m gonna head outside and enjoy this wonderful weather.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Blackberry Festival

It’s that time again. Time to celebrate the humble blackberry with a three-day festival at the Clarksburg City Park. You can find all sorts of yummy treats, such as pies, cobblers, and cupcakes. Plus, there is live entertainment, handmade crafts, and a pet parade. A good time to be had by all.

I got some scrumptious blackberry cobbler

and some delicious local wine.

Have a festive weekend, everyone!

What A Visit!

I had a wonderful time! We went out quite a bit, going to parks and restaurants. We all went to a painting class where each of us painted the moon phase of our birthday.

My sister and I drank some lovely local wine…

and went on the daytime paranormal tour at The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum (we even met a couple of ghosts).

Plus, we three girls got matching shoes.

It was a marvelous visit and I can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Storytime: Brownie

There have always been animals in my life. Cats, dogs, hamsters, birds, even a guinea pig. My dad is an animal lover; my mom is not. He would always bring home random animals and she would just roll her eyes and end up taking care of them.

One of my favorite pets was a brown and white cat. He had two names, Brownie and Glover. Brownie because he had brown patches and Glover because he looked like he was wearing gloves (he was a polydactyl). Not totally original, but accurate.

We had him for many years. Every night, he would sleep above my head, massaging my scalp with his claws. It was soothing and always put me to sleep quickly.

Sometimes, while playing with Brownie, I would start meowing like him. My father would yell for the cat to be quiet and I would just laugh. After a while, he caught on and started asking Is that Kellie or the cat?? Again, it made me laugh.

I don’t remember what happened to Brownie. He probably died. All I know, is one day he was gone. I’m sure I was sad, but we had such a revolving door of animals, that I wouldn’t have stayed sad for long.

It’s possible that being surrounded by animals my whole childhood is what led to me having so many animals as an adult. Either that, or the fact that my husband is a bigger animal lover than even my dad. And that is saying something.
