I’m just giving you all a little heads up. When you link me to a Blog type challenge, for some reason I get no notifications for it. The only reason I’ve seen the ones I have is because I’ve actually been reading the posts. I’m not sure why it’s happening and I’m looking into it…But I thought that I should let you know.
Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do? Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed
I have always wanted to be an Ice-Skater, they just all look so beautiful in the ice! They almost feel like they’re floating sometimes. I have always loved Torvill and Dean, and I have their film on DVD. I was obsessed when I was a child. I’d go over my Grandparents and watch “Fire and Ice”.
A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?
I do. I have a dress, it’s kind of hard to describe, but I looked so cute in it! It was a mid blue, sports style with a hood. It had these white and black checker pockets too,lol. I LOVED it! Good quality too, it lasted for quiet a while. I had to stop wearing because I grew out of it.
In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?
Although I cannot actually drive. I am starting to learn, but I’d rather not be doing that. I’m doing it mainly because I feel I have too. With myself and my furbabies getting unexpectedly sick and my Dad having a triple instead of a double bypass. I feel like I have too now. I prefer being the passenger though.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I really appreciate the people on WordPress. Commentary wise I have had some amazing, inspirational conversations this week. They have been really motivating!

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?
It honestly depends on what I’m using the writing tool for. If it’s something where I might make a mistake, I try to write it in pencil first and then rewrite over in pen. Most of the time though I am writing in pen.
What’s your choice: jigsaw, word, maze or numeric puzzles?
I love to do word puzzles! I have an app on my phone at the moment, that’s an anagram game. Numeric puzzles are not my “thing” and I don’t mind maze and jigsaw puzzles, I just prefer a word puzzle.
Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself?
I prefer long hair, I’ve had long hair pretty much all of my life. It has been such a love/hate relationships with my hair. I am always getting compliments about my hair, but these days it takes a lot take care of it and it can get knotty really easily at the moment.
List five some of your favorite blogs.
- Compassion Kindness … I love reading the inspirational quotes every day. They bring a smile to my face. I tend to like every single thing they post.
- Musings from a Tangled Mind … Just reading all her relatable every day posts, makes me grin.
- The Orangutan Librarian … Definitely give this one a read! I can’t read them right now because they’ve written a post about Games of Thrones and I haven’t watched it yet.
- Bookmark Chronicles … Probably one of my favourite bloggers on here, very inspirational and thoughtful…Please check this one out!
- Upon Raven Wings … Beautifully written posts. Please have a read!
After a weekend pretty much away from Facebook, I came back too all the drama and passive aggressiveness, and the hypocritical crud too…
Sigh Facebook, when will people learn! When will people learn! I’m getting tired of the bullshit…I literally had one “friend” who I am constantly having to put up with because she’s my best friends other best friend. She’s does the ODDEST things. I try to get over it all the time and just when I think that I am, she does something else.
I think that I’m just sticking with my Blogging and Safari Drive for a while.
If you have been able to tell from some past Blogs of mine, I do enjoy my shopping…online and window…So you can imagine how excited I was when I was looking for some new Winter tops and I found a bunch of Blogging clothing! So below I have posted links to these clothing sites!
Go and check them out!
So I am training my first group today! I am really nervous about it, guaranteed it’s training my own class, full of fellow classmates, but it’s still a nerve wrecking process,lol. I am training my class mates how to set-up a Blog today. Which is probably part of my nerves because I am introducing people to something that has become very precious to myself and something that has become apart of my daily life now.
Wish me luck!
Sometimes it’s also Pixar, Dreamworks and Fox Animation…etc…You get my point ~.^
I found this fantastic Blog on a Facebook page (Check out George Takei’s Facebook page!)
In all honestly I wasn’t even aware that some of these classic childhood movies were not Disney movies at all! I didn’t even have to play the YouTube videos to remember some of these films.
Just the thumbnail of “The Land Before Time” was enough to get me “misted-eyed”.

“You can’t love empty, because there’s nothing there to love. Nothing there for your love to stick to. Nothing there to love you back. Arms holding you and lips kissing you mean nothing if the heart isn’t attached.” Mandy Hale – The Single Woman Blog
I read other blogs that are not WordPress (shock and horror I know) one that I used to read all the time was Mandy Hale’s “The Single Woman”. I had recently stopped reading after the author become a little “upset” (if you will) when people thought she was silly for getting her hopes up for the ex that she is speaking about in this blog and she’s never been in love with this man, “poked” her on Facebook.
I am still subscribed via email and I received an updated Blog and I could relate to this post just SO much! Just that statement describes so much of what has happened in my past relationships and how I need it to stop! I think that every single one of us has had this relationship at some point (if not more than once).
Check more of Mandy out! Especially for those who are single, this blog is brilliant!
I found this amazing Blog posting this week that I just fell in love with and felt that all my readers should read this post too!
I am also a people watcher and many probably wouldn’t believe it, but I struggle in social situations as well. I have gotten better over the years, but I love to people watch, but I don’t want to be watched!
If I had a child, I would encourage them to read whatever it they wanted too. I couldn’t imagine being a parent, or an adult and look down on anyone who wants to read whatever it is they want too.
