Summer 2017 Biannual Blogathon Bash! I Am A Go? #blogathon2

It has been awhile since I participated in the Blogathon Bash. I love this time though, as I get a ton done. This time around, I am late signing up and getting even started. 

However, the beauty of the bash is it can work with your schedule and thank goodness for that because I am one big mess this weekend. 

So, here are a few goals for the rest of the bash:
1. Get a couple of blogs pre-posted for this blog and definitely my reading blog, Reading Authors
(I have little net time during the week now.)
2. Fix my other blog as something went wacky over there.
3. Follow up with commenting for Kid Lit Hop
4. Clean up and out my email/install an undescribed
5. Catch Sunday's Twitter party.
6. Clean up and catch up with my Facebook pages
7. If time, do a mini-challenge or two

I will be lucky if I can finish all of that but I will do my best!

ICAD 2017...Who is in?


I can be considered a "Guru" in the land of "Icadia" because I have completed this at least once. I have participated several times and looking forward to this again.

I will update my cards on the blog once a week but if you want to see daily, follow me on Instagram.

#MemorialDay Think about it...

When I was growing up, my Grandpa would sometimes say that today was "Decoration Day", a day to go out and decorate all of the cemetery plots. He grew up in southern Missouri, in the country. Most all of the cemeteries there is family related in one fashion or another.

He often told me they would decorate each grave of fallen soldiers with flowers. Yes, they had picnics nearby but it was due to the length of time it took...it was an all day affair.

Writing this forces me to remember what Memorial Day really is all about. It is a time to remember our fallen soldiers, both men and women, who served our country and died in doing so.

Think about it.

Monday's Music Moves Me...The Whatever Version

Credit


Hello, my favorite musical people. Today is Monday's Music Moves Me and I am playing along to the beat of my own drummer. I am a bit confused as to whether this is a freebie week or a theme week so, I will just do the "whatever version." I kind of like that anyway.

Hmm....So, let's see what I have for you this week. Since next Sunday is Mother's Day and my Mom will be gone. I thought I would ask her what she would like to hear. This is her picks!

Her first pick: I love this movie too. It is not necessarily her favorite movie but it is the first song off the top of her head.




Next: This song she was thinking of my Dad. She said, " We used to dance to this song all of the time."


Finally: I asked her what was the last song she would like to hear and it was...Silent Night. I cannot be certain why except I know she loves the season of Christmas.


So, there you have it. My Mom's picks for the week. Make sure you link up and have a great week.

Coffee Chat: If I Could Go Anywhere Today... #CoffeeChat



It is coffee chat time...for me, that would be Pepsi...it is time to talk about a not-so-random topic with Rory. This week she wants to talk about if I could go anywhere today, where I would go? Hmm...?

Well, since she did ask about just today and not long term, that makes a difference as to where I would go. Since I do not have a car...sigh...I would probably walk up to the nearest bus stop, hand-in-hand with the hubby, and head to Sedona. There I can catch up with my Mom.

I would ask her to drive us to the mountains toward Flagstaff. Have you ever been that way? Oh, my gosh, it is gorgeous with winding roads, loads of trees, and the river running along. I think this time I would ask her to first stop at Dairy Queen. Yeah! We would all get some ice cream and check out the Native American wares. Oh, my, their stuff is gorgeous!


Then, after all of that, I would ask her to take me somewhere close by the river. I have been wanting to go down there and take some photos. Maybe we could dip our toes in the river, skip rocks, or make the river move in a different direction by moving big boulders. We would certainly have a picnic.

Oh, I know, we could go down to the trout fishery. The water there runs swiftly and it would be cool to see the fish flitting about. Oh yes, I can see it and feel the cool water wafting over my feet.

After we spent several hours, then we would head back to Sedona and go up to Airport Road. This is on top of one of the mountains, although, I am not sure which. Anyway, we would join others who have come up there to see the breathtaking view over Sedona and watch the sun set over the mountains.

 I am sure we would hear a group of women singing their songs to the sun or hear a young violinist making beautiful music while people drop coins in her case.

Yes! This is what I would do if I could go anywhere. But...

Unfortunately, I have to go to work.
