It has truly been an amazing year of writing, blogging, having fun, sharing, entertaining and making new friends. I have thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot as well. Just before I retired I had an episode of ill health, the only way forward was to get strengthened in Christ, get good nutrition and exercise going for total recovery and make each day special. I wasn’t doing much in way of writing and from feedback of what i wrote was I needed to improve. Then I found WordPress, a platform that gave me a boost of energy to further develop myself and the things I want to do. I owe a lot to sharing with you and learning from you, I have written more, got involved in more activities and initiated my personal projects to fruition than I ever did. I am glad I am able to write this without my laptop going, “Oops, something has gone wrong.” because of storage problems I have been trying to catch up with liking and commenting on your blog posts, on writing the Daily Prompt and by God’s Grace one day hope to bring back ‘Top of the Elevenses/Brunch’.
Thanks to you all, from my first Follower to the most recent one, to all at Admin and Blogging Fundamentals, to Mr Ngobesing Romanus and all at Success Inspirers’ World, Viewers and Readers. There are so many names to mention and I don’t want to miss any, so just believe I send you my love and thanks too.
Blessings of Palm Sunday to you all, His love is for everyone of us because we are all SPECIAL.
Instinct has made the news many a time. How you may ask? Well, I have always found it fascinating when I read about the cats and dogs that find their way home after the owners had moved from one area to another. It is their homing instinct directing them. What a useful thing to have?.
Thank God for Google, well for dictionaries before the Web came along. Searching to make sure I was thinking of the right word or rather the right meaning to parlay, I found something I had always known. I don’t know everything, in fact, no one can know everything except Our God. As it turns out I thinking of ‘parlez’ as in the French to speak. Now, parlay is a new word that I am going to add to my vocabulary. So it’s about the mindset of gamblers putting their money or winnings into more bets. I suppose they were hoping that they would win again, I wonder how many did.
Great Expectations, What a book!,
Every page revealed an exciting episode,
The plot was so simple,
The journey so intricate,
The good, the bad, the indifferent,
Were all characters we visualised,
We critically weighed them,
Their actions and motions,
Interactions and emotions,
Their purpose and assignations,
All in all the enjoyment each folio gave,
An urge to read cover to cover,
An urge to be writer and enthral readers.Expectation
‘There was such a sense of helplessness she was overwhelmed. The crowd surged forward with sticks and any weapon they could lay their hands on.’ This is where Sonya got stuck, she had a writer’s block. Everyone she told this to, couldn’t believe it because they thought it was a strong beginning and there were so many routes to take this story.
However Sonya is the only one to decide that but having opened the door to other people’s thoughts and ideas, well it doesn’t hurt to get peer, fan and critical input. What do you think?
What shall I tempt you with?
An amazing array of foods is at your pleasure.
Which country’s national food will be the first?
I am looking for community effort here,
Many people have dual or more heritage,
So feast times have different platters of different countries.
What festive food goes on your table?
Photos are welcome.too.
