Lighthouses, beachcombing & campfires

Eddie and I went last week to Weymouth to get some drinking water from the spring there as the water at my parent’s house though technically safe to drink, bathe and cook with smells and tastes gross so they refill water at the old Jones bottling plant there that has a spring outside that is free for everyone to use and a frequent place for people to get water in droughts.

TBH – Prompt #2 – Kandahar, Afghanistan

What is the most dangerous place you’ve ever been to and why did you go?

House & Dog Sitting

My parents went to Connecticut on Tuesday for a week to visit our cousins there for a birthday party and they asked us to house & dog sit for the week at their place as well as get my brother back and forth to school every day. We came over Tuesday night to stay for the week. I love their place. It’s actually owned by one of the cousins she’s visiting and her husband.

The house is 170 years old, built in 1849. I wrote about its resident ghost Ethel here a few months back. It’s such a lovely old house but cold and drafty I have not been able to get warm since we’ve been here. I also have a bit of a break from work since my mom won’t be officially training me to be her office manager until she comes back. READ MORE

Prompt #1 – The time I backed into a wall literally

Write about a time that you accidentally did something funny. What happened and what was the consequences if any?

So as I mentioned in my last post I started a new website called The BloggerHop. Here is the first prompt for Monday, April 22nd, 2019. I am sure there have been many times that I have accidentally did something funny as my husband, my family and my friends will surely be happy to mention. One thing that really stands out in my mind though is when I backed our 2015 Nissan Altima up into a parkade wall while trying to parallel park in a small spot against the wall. First off your probably thinking, that’s not funny right?! READ MORE

The BloggerHop

I have been trying to come up with a side project for weeks. One thing I have noticed over the years is that as time goes by I am having a harder and harder time with coming up with blog posts. Sometimes I go weeks, months or even years. Yes… years without posting. I don’t want to get rid of the domain or blog ever. It’s part of who I am. It’s something I have enjoyed doing for about 20 years. I started blogging during a very dark time in my life which I am not going to get into because that is not what this post is about but it has helped me tremendously during the years and then more recently just as a way to unwind and try to show some of my creativity and express my thoughts.

Anyways, back to the subject, sorry got a bit sidetracked there. So I was having trouble coming up with an idea and while doing some thinking I came to the conclusion that maybe I was thinking too hard. Maybe I should just do something that has already been done but revamp it and give it a unique twist. Something along the lines of BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo if anyone even remembers or knows what that is. So I decided to create The BloggerHop. READ MORE
