This week is Letter E – Needs to have two E’s in the topic word (needle, elephant, geese, peek, jeep, eye, etc.). For my photo subject, I chose 'Weeds'. A weed is any wild plant that grows in unwanted areas. We do have a lot of weeds in our yard but some like the ones below … Continue reading Cee’s Foto Fun – The Letter E

‘The gate remained shut for hundreds of years. No one knew what was on the other side. No one dared find out.’
Rusty combed his brain for the next line but nothing came. He loathed 10th grade creative writing with its useless themes. Like this week – Fanciful Fiction. What rubbish! Bored, Rusty peered out his bedroom window and notice the iron gate leading to a vacant lot across the street. Strange I have never noticed it before, thought Rusty.

This is something I posted on my sister-site. I thought I would share with a different group. I hope you like it
Kika and his brother Hakan were walking through the woods in search of blueberries for Grandmother’s pie. Across the stream, Hakan noticed a bush ripe with berries.
“There are enough berries for two pies on that bush,” said Hakan, stepping into the stream.
In the tree above sat Old Crow, cawing “Danger, Danger.” Hearing the warning, Kika pleaded with his brother to return. “Do you not hear Old Crow?” he asked.

By now Hakan was hungry and it would be hours before Grandmother baked the pie…

Courtesy of the Red Cross, he told her. “It’s my fault, I could have removed Grandma’s things two days ago. Now, everything […] … Continue reading Loss and Found
I wonder who I would be if I were not someone’s wife, mother, sister, friend, employee? Who am I, in the purest sense? These were questions Eve asked herself one quiet morning as she sipped coffee from a mug with the words World’s Greatest Mom barely visible from the many cycles in the dishwasher. She … Continue reading Unanswered Question
What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have never been discovered. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Inspiration for this post comes from 30 Day Emotional Eating Journal Challenge Today's challenge is to write a letter describing my relationship with food. We have been together for a long time, a lifetime in fact. I want you to know how important you are to me. After all, without you, I would literally die. But you … Continue reading Dearest Food

Michelangelo was once asked about the difficulties of carving his masterpiece statute David. “It is easy.

What is your biggest barrier to weight loss, and why? I am my barrier to weight loss (and good health). As soon as I set (any) goal, every ounce of my being rebels. I literally see myself caving in to self-doubt and self-control. It has nothing to do with belief in my ability to do this. I have done this … Continue reading Day 1 – Barriers to Weight Loss
