Making excuses

I agree completely!

Looking through a frosty window...

I realize that people are very happy to make excuses. I’ve always felt that making silly excuses is a sign of weakness. It’s always seemed petty to me. It’s not important why something didn’t get done or why I haven’t done it. What’s important is when I will do it or that I’ve realized my error and will take action.

I had a meeting today and the person forgot to bring a document. Instead of saying, I didn’t have time to print it or I forgot, he went on to try and explain that his printer was acting up and so on and so forth. I really didn’t care because I had a copy and more importantly, it’s not such a big deal. We are all busy and things like that can happen. The best thing to do is to apologize or simply say I missed bringing a copy of…

Words without brakes

Susie Shy 45

It is surprising how reading a book inspires one to write. A fountain that was dried up seems to want to send out water again. A tap that ran dry seems to be waiting to be opened up and let flow. Poetry seems to be flowing out. Can there be magic in a pen and can magic transfer from one writer to another ? It would seem so.

When I post, usually I read and re-read and sometimes trash my posts because they have been written over days and the day I am ready to publish, the post does not resonate with my inner muse anymore. Time has changed my outlook on the same issue even though much time has not gone by. Even seconds can change one’s way of looking at the same thing. Writing a post for me is like capturing a moment on a photographic plate, slicing…

There’s a first to everything…

Cyranny's Cove

And I can’t believe it took me this long to try this.

I watch my fair share of cooking tv shows. And one thing that always amazed me was to see people make fresh pasta from scratch for one hour challenges! I mean, it does look easy, but as much as I am confident in my cooking skills, making fresh pasta seemed totally out of my league!

And last Christmas, my parents offered me whole pasta kit. Semi professional rolling mill and all the gadgets that come with it.

So tonight, I rolled up my sleeves, and I decided to try to make spaghetti. First I had to mix and work the pasta dough. Surprisingly, it went pretty well, and after ten minutes of kneading, I left my dough to sit for half an hour…

Back to normality

Therapy Bits

Thank goodness christmas is finally all over! Dont get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but I sure am glad to be going back to normal, back to my normal routine, back to what I normally do every day!
Tomorrow I go back to therapy. I am delighted to be going back. The break was hard. It was really tough. We got through it but it was very hard to manage it.
Tuesday I go back volunteering on friendly call. It will be my first day back after the holidays. I am excited to go back to work. I will enjoy catching up with my colleagues in the office, finding out all about their christmas.
Wednesday I start college. Starting college is going to be amazing. I got my student ID card in the mail just before christmas. I have my second day of wrap training on Wednesday. Its an all…

3 Guaranteed Strategies for Stepmoms to Shut down Bio-Mom For GOOD

Bonused + Blessed

Any stepmom will tell you that walking in her shoes is not for the faint of heart, whether she has her own children or has the dreaded “Childless Stepmom” label (that’s another post all together), if she’s a new stepmom or has been pouring into the lives of her stepchildren for years. No matter where she may be in her journey, the consensus is the same: it ain’t easy. I can tell you from my own experience as a stepmom of two boys that it is not an easy life. Hardly anyone chooses this position, rather, it chooses them.

While, for me, the rewards that come with sharing in the responsibility of raising children in a blended family environment outweigh the struggle, the difficulties of this type of life are varied and aren’t always rooted in negativity. Parenting and marriage are hard no matter your family dynamic. Add to that…

Hello, 2019. Please do not let me down.

Haise's Haven


Hello people that have wandered into this realm of fiction created by me 5 months ago ( or probably 6? I can’t seem to remember),

I would like to wish everyone a great year ahead and may this year filled with wonders and favor to all of you out there.

First and foremost, with frank, I would say 2018 had not been good for me. Too much of things happened. Artists that I liked passed, my granddad became ill (he’s fine now if you are asking), wars still goes on around the world and stuff like that. 2018 was a letdown but I hope to thrive in 2019 no matter what.

Secondly, I would like to thank my 60 followers. To be honest, at first, I thought no one would subscribe to this blog as what I was writing were all fiction, which all the work had no direct meaning…
