..And that is that

Okay term over, or it has been since the end of October. Also, something very interesting. I got a couple of comments that I spelled nieve wrong. Thanks! Now, if I could only find the post so I could fix it! (but, I promise I have turned on Grammarly)

I did start a new book, not reading it but writing it. I am only a few chapters in and it’s interesting material. As soon as I am sure I know where I am going I will post an excerpt or two.

Now that Christmas is over, it’s time to pack away all those things that are associated with it. I am a bit sad because there are things that I really liked seeing and using. But, I suppose putting them up for another year gives me the space for new decorations. I just hope they do not get misplaced like a bunch of my christmas decorations did last year. I still don’t know where they are! I cannot be the only person that has happened to!

Oh right back to the topic, so what’s next. I think everyone has asked me that, and I’m really not sure. There really is law school or a master’s degree in archival studies.

But, for now, I’m really going to rest and enjoy just being. It took me about 7 years to get my BA. I think I will finish the year reading and relaxing with the grandson. Maybe plotting something new, you never know!!


I really am a wonderful writer, I promise!

You know there are a lot of things that I do not excel at but, there are a few I do. Math, i’m really wonderful at and I get it but, I really don’t like it. I don’t like the exactness of it. I like rough edges. I am for lack of a better word in love with words.

I love writing, I adore phrases that speak to my bone marrow. I love reading and watching stories play out so I can adapt them for myself. Taking nuggets like this one from Penny Dreadful, “A endless ribbon of words” I LOVE that. But, it being something that I adore, and that helps define me I don’t do it often. I do not write much. For the last few years I have only written for school. Mind you I enjoyed it and the feedback.

It made me a stronger writer. It also helped me understand that I have to convey my thoughts fully for someone to “get it”. Making well developed ideas is something that I sometimes lack. I think anyone who knows me says that sometimes I start in the middle. Well, like some stories that is where things get interesting. Then after you get one point across you can go back and do prequels!

Yet I digress, the point of this post was my apologies for not writing as much as I could. I get so caught up in other things that I don’t even think about it. And, I honestly miss it. I miss writing about life. So, I am going to start trying to write it again. More often, and more indepth. I’m also going to work on my book as soon as my term is over (I can hear Ardath cheer) lol…

My book you ask? It’s something I started a few years ago for an english class. if you are a member of my Jannis Elizabeth Piersee group on facebook you can find it there someplace (grins). But, it’s time to dust it off and get going with the plot while I can still remember what it was! I ‘ll post some teasers on this blog and etc and so on ;/!

Much ❤

The power of words

The power of words is amazing. But, more amazing than the power of words, is that pull, that draws to write them. I have been off school for 4 weeks, and I am having a meltdown. I see things every day that I say, I HAVE TO BLOG THAT! But, because I do not want to come off any weirder than I am presently so I don’t write them. I stuff them in my head in an area labeled, ” Don’t even THINK about posting that”.  Well, you only live once, so I believe you might see me post a bit more. My last post was in September, pathetic!! How will I ever gain millions of followers? Not like that assuredly.

I’ve read blogs, and so many things can make it successful. First, it has to SPEAK to someone. It has to have something meaningful and deep to say. ANYONE, who knows me knows this is something I can do. I have a talent, curse, ability to listen to a conversation and then jump in with a thought that takes it down four rabbit holes, 2 moles holes, and 5 pastures. Usually, sometimes, well I think it’s a valid point and, for some reason, it has to be heard.

Anyone who has been around me any length of time knows that I sometimes overshare. It’s not that I have an innate need to be accepted or liked, or even understood. It is that simply that part of my soul has thrown down a gauntlet and pushed that small ribbon of words out of my mouth. Usually, it is because I think someone else might feel the way I do, but won’t say it? No? Um, I think that the point is valid and might make deep meaningful conversation? No? Ok, okay, the truth is I just feel and it flies out of my mouth. Where does that leave you and me? I have no idea we will see if I put my best foot forward and actually post more.


Much <3,

My Favorite Things….Box By Mail.

I am going to start reviewing my favorite things for you and let you know what is the best thing about them, where you can get them. And, how you can use them. This should be pretty fun because I LOVE freebies and deals. If you want to see my thoughts on something send me a note, and I will be happy to do it.

My favorite is Fab Fit Fun

it is a 49.99 once a quarter box.

When the box comes, it is full of full-size products (no trials which I love). And, they are products that are Fab, and some keep you fit and some are just fun. (I once got a stick version of Charades which is mucho fun!). I’ve gotten blankets, Jewelry (which stood the test of me wearing it every day with no adverse effects). And, of course, beauty products. And if you buy their yearly you save some money, get priority shipping and can customize what comes in your box. Also, most of the products come with coupons when you have to reorder.

I get mine in the next few days. They also have super helpful emails and interesting stuff on their forum. Plus Videos and other fun stuff.

I think it’s a win win

Here is a link Get your box


Preception of Beauty…

All my life I have struggled with my weight. When I was growing up I heard, “You need to let your height catch up with your weight.”, I thought even then, “Are You Kidding Me?”

When I grew up, I heard, “You would be beautiful, if you lost a little weight.” Again, I thought, “Are You Kidding Me?”

As an adult, I found my fat cells as a comfort, if I weighed more no one would want to bother me, no one would look at me, and therefore I would be safe. I’ve talked to other women, and lo it’s the same story. THE SAME STORY!

We say we battle with our weight but, that is not it. We battle with being victimized! WE battle with being beautiful and bothered. WE decide to pack on the pounds and hide from life because we do not want to be tortured, ogled, victimized!

Just so you know, I am DONE with my weight, I’m going to do what I want and live the way I want to. I am going to be as healthy or unhealthy as I feel the need to be. I am DONE hiding from the world. I AM DONE with letting people have the power over me. I have for far too long listened to the opinion of others of what I need to do, and accepted it as fact.

I am beautiful inside and out, I am intelligent inside and out, and I am done hiding inside and out. To all those out there who are just like me, I know your there, stop hiding. Be who you are, stop letting the stupidity of people kill you slowly by the damage to your body, and the damage to your soul.

Do not let anyone other than you, own you. Don’t be afraid, of being you. You are so very wonderful just as you are. Living in fear is like living in a prison where you are holding the keys to your freedom but, choose not to leave. The only thing that is stopping you is you, and if someone desires to hurt you, call me, I have a bat! WE will handle this together, you will not have to be alone.

Everyone, male or female deserves to live their best life unaffected by the actions of others. We all struggle with parts of us that we feel are substandard. That is our uniqueness. That is our beauty. It’s time to embrace who we are, and start living for who we are.

I have a vision that man or woman, could walk down the street, the cat walk, the stage without feeling like an object. That walk that we are attempting is an act of pride, we are beautiful recognize that without demeaning that MAN OR WOMAN.
