10 days and Counting

Bogue Inlet Pier-Emerald Isle, NCImage by Mikey aka DaSkinnyBlackMan in Iraq via Flickr

We are exactly 10 days away from my Best Friends arrival from Denver. I am so excited it has been over a year since I have seen her and I am so ready for the girl time! We both have had our battles over the last year so it will be good to relax and have a glass of wine together.
We have plans to hit the beach that weekend probably end up at Emerald Isle. I Love going near the Bogue Inlet Pier. Then on Sunday have a cook out with other friends.

So I hope the weekend is nice and not too hot and humid. Even though I doubt it with it being July in NC.

This post was more of a post to try out Zemanta and see how it helps with blogging. So far I am liking it.
So far for these few words and addition of pics it was easy and fun!
I think it makes blogging a bit easier!
Can't wait to play more!
Anyway off to play with the little one!

Reblog this post [with Zemanta]


My goal was to try my hand at blogging. Just to see where it would take me. This is a goal to share my thoughts, ideas, dreams and goals. Maybe, Inspire others. So today I sat down to write in my blog....

Writers block!! Already and I haven’t even started!
Man am I going to be in trouble! Hopefully it will get easier as time goes.

So as with any new adventure I went to the Headlines to find something there to write about.
Well, there I became depressed.
Yahoo news reports “Yemen plane crashes off Comoros with 153 on board”, “4 US soldiers killed during Iraq cities pullout,” “Freight train derails in Italy, kills 12, burns 50,” These were the top three headlines. Then it is peppered with the issues that have arisen from the death of Michael Jackson. So I remembered why I do not look at the news, read the news, or listen to the news. It just triggers my PTSD and depression. So I think I will stay in my little corner of Eastern NC and live in my fairy-tale world and be blissfully ignorant of the issues going on around me.
Sounds good!
I wish it could be so easy.

Many of the issues today influence many of the decisions we make in our lives. Granted plane crashes and train crashes may not stop us from traveling, and our soldiers dying won’t stop our sons/daughters from enlisting. However, maybe these headlines will make us stop and remember how blessed we are and say a prayer for those affected by these tragedies. We have to find our own silver linings and do the best we can with the gifts we are given.

So I am thankful for my life, my family and the gifts I have been given.
So back to my fairy-tale world I go.
I hope everyone has a Blessed Day and remembers all the blessings they have.

The Beginning

Today I am starting a Blog on my family happenings this summer and one for all my crafts. I will post that blog link when I get it up and running. This was something I wanted to do last year but never did. So this summer I made a plan to get more organized and to share my adventures with my family and in crafting. Plus I am stepping out side of the box. Doing something I have never done before. So we will see what happens.
They say in Field of Dreams "Build it and they will come" I wonder if I write it will it be read? So I am writing and will wait to see if they come to read.
I am a dreamer, so some of my dreams, goals and ambitions will transpire
here on these blogs.

I hope you enjoy and have fun in my adventures.
