I hate these days

Its good to be crazy Sometimes

The way we have been doing the school run is that my partner (I really should give him a better nickname) will either do the drop off or the collection, depending on what he is working.

There have been the odd few days like tomorrow, when his work start him at 9am and finish at 3.30pm

Meaning he can do neither, we have had the conversation about just leaving monkey at school till four and hoping he is ok, but that is frowned upon, as is dumping the poor lad in the playground at 8.15 in the morning.

This means, I have to do it, which results in nights like this when I just stare at the clock ticking down, till I fall asleep with a knot in my stomach.

As I have explained in a previous post the actual doing doesn’t seem to be a problem, but the come…

My Week 216: Brotherly Love

mydangblog

I’m on a boat! Yes, mydangblog is travelling. I’ve been superbusy this week getting work stuff done and then getting packed up to go, so here’s what I have for you. You know I write this blog, and you might know that I’m a published novelist, but I also write short stories. I’ve only ever posted one (Donut Store Memories), but I thought I’d share this one with you just for fun. OK, it’s not particularly funny–in fact, it’s kind of dark, but I hope you like it. I’ll be back next week with tales of my adventures but for now…

Brotherly Love

Jackson Wills had loved Joy Wills from the first moment he’d seen her in the Stag And Horn Pub five years ago. She had come towards him, smiling, hand outstretched. Even from a distance, he could see the delicate bones of her wrist, the porcelain skin, and the fine…

Luxurious Mountain Fall

WRITE OUTSIDE

Fall has been fantastic in Western North Carolina this year. And I love everything about it!

I love the sensation of a cool breeze on my skin and the crunch of leaves beneath my feet.

I enjoy long walks with my dog and cat ( yes cat) looking up into the boughs of autumnal colored trees.

I jump on the pumpkin spice train every fall. That’s lattes, breads, doughnuts- anything pumpkin spiced I’ll eat it-without shame.

I rejoice when the temperature drops below 60 degrees and I can dive into my scarf basket. I live for cooler weather so I can play winter dress-up in coats, hats, scarfs and gloves- and then complain it’s too cold!

So here’s some amateur I-phone photography celebrating fall near my home.

The dog and cat are enjoying the fall pleasures as well.

There is such joy in spending time researching in libraries! Endless information and treasure. I am grateful for my medical writing project which brought me back to the place where I earned my Master’s degree 12 years ago.

Daily Addictions: Muse and MLMM Saturday Mix 11-10-18

The Bag Lady

It used to be simple

You were my muse

Delighted in every vowel you used

Telling me how you loved me

Does love ever last?

Can it really be without ending too complicated?

I used many consonants trying to keep you near

But the two vowels I remember most are

Love….

Over and end.

Oh Precious…

Cyranny's Cove

My love for you
is well beyond
lips touching,
and sweet little
nothings, whispered
to a shivering
ear…

Beyond sacred
promises, oaths
and vows…
It has no
boundaries,
follows
no timeline,
knows no rule!

My heart sings
a song of its own…
Your name, perfect
chorus to my Gaelic
lullabies.

Oh Precious, my
Love is immortal and
fears not the afterlife…
For you were
the one I sought,
are the one
I need,
and will always
be the one I cherish.

Its the I am all caught up weekend Share #54

Its good to be crazy Sometimes

Well I will be tomorrow, but the flat is all nice and clean and I only have to do a few more bits of paperwork before that is all done and then I get the job I have been looking forward to, but slightly putting off which is the furniture list and figuring out where everything goes, so I can start figuring out where to put the pictures.

Anyway, lets have a great party

blog party1

If you have never done this before, give it a go, you lose maybe 30 seconds of your life adding a link and you never know who might see it, I will, my mum probably will, so its well worth it.

As everything is life there are rules, if you are new or just need reminding here they are

Rules are very simple,

  1. You can share up to five links
  2. They can be a post, your…

Cold…

Cyranny's Cove

Ivy shadows dancing
in the wind, dying
flapping of a ghostly
pidgeon’s wings…
A siren afar ripping through
the silence of the night,
a neighbour’s child giggle,
Do they realize it’s almost midnight?
Trying my best to warm
my hands on the last candle’s flickering
flame… But it is useless, my knuckles
are already whitened by the coldness.
I blow on them,
They stiffen…
I rub them a bit,
They start aching…
It is a fatality. Freezing fingers
just can’t sing.

Why should I use DuckDuckGo instead of Google? Gabriel Weinberg, CEO & Founder at DuckDuckGo (2008-present)

juantetcts

#1 — Google tracks you. We don’t.

You share your most intimate secrets with your search engine without even thinking: medical, financial and personal issues, along with all the day to day things that make you, well, you. All of that personal information should be private, but on Google it’s not. On Google, your searches are tracked, mined, and packaged up into a data profile for advertisers to follow you around the Internet through those intrusive and annoying ever-present banner ads, using Google’s massive ad networks, embedded across millions of sites and apps.

In fact, it’s a myth that you need to track people to make money in web search. When you search ‘car’ we can show you a car ad without knowing anything about you. That’s how we make money and it doesn’t involve tracking because it is based on the keyword and not the person…
