A Quick Note

Hello to all who stop by.

I'm sorry that I went missing in the blogging community the past several weeks. I have some long term personal commitments that are taking up more of my time than I had originally thought they would, so blogging has been put on hold for a little while. 

I will be away for at least a couple more weeks. When I return, I'll again be posting on Thursdays.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

A Quick Q & A Post


As the post I had planned to share today is not ready, I just thought I'd do a quick Q & A post.


The question is: What are you going to be working on over the next several days?


My answer: I've got a couple of book reviews I need to finish up and then I'll start reading a new book. I'll also be doing some writing and starting to work on some of my posts for the A to Z Challenge. As for cooking, I have a couple of recipes I'd like to try.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will participate.

The Very Inspiring Blogger Award Nominees Are ...

The rules for accepting this award are as follows:
1. Thank the person who nominated you, and link to their blog.
2. Display the award logo.
3. Nominate at least 15 other blogs (more or less) and provide a link where they may be found.
4. Then, go to their blog, leave a comment to let them know they have been nominated, and where to find the information they need to accept (rules).
5. Mention three things that inspired you the most during the past few weeks.



I'd like to say THANK YOU to Deanie Humprys-Dunne for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. She is a wonderful blogger friend and a very talented children's author. Deanie blogs over at Thoughts and Ideas from Deanie Humprys-Dunne. If you don't already follow her blog, be sure to stop by and check it out. I'm so glad that Deanie introduced herself to me through Google + because we've been following each other's blogs ever since.


The bloggers I've listed below have all been inspiring to me through their blog posts, through comments they leave on my blog posts, or special messages I may get from them in my emails. 

My family and friends have inspired me, with their wonderful support, to keep moving forward with my weight loss efforts and continuing to work at improving my health (one of my words for 2015).

And last, but not least, our dog has been helping me to work on my patience (my other word for 2015). When I take him out on the cold, windy, snowy days of winter, he wants to play and explore, while I want him to get out and do his potty business, so we can quickly get back inside the warm house.
