Happy Thanksgiving

My Mama taught me well. MFRWauthor

It’s time for Week 39 – MFRW 52-week Blog Challenge. #MFRWAuthor~Words to Live by

I did some researching for great quotes on this topic and found this awesome page. of  50  inspirational quotes to live by. I highly recommend you bookmark to go to when you need a lift. As always I try to overthink things hence the research for over half an hour. I decided to stick with the one thing my mom and grandma taght me and I always try to live by.

“Do to others what you want them to do to you. This is the meaning of the law of Moses and the teaching of the prophets” (Matthew 7:12 NCV, see also Luke 6:31).

The King James version…Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you: do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

 

Put simply the way my mom said..Do to others as you want them to do to you. So every time I begin to say or do something I try to think about if I would want someone to do that to me. She also taught me to turn the other cheek.  I try to be a good person but I am only human so I do like the words.Karma is a bitch and hope it doesn’t fall back on me. LOL So I sit back and watch.

Let’s go see what the other authors live by.

Winning my heart is easy! #MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amwriting

 

First of all, I want to send well wishes, hopes and prayers to all that were affected by the hurricanes and wildfires. I hope you are all safe and damage is to a minimum. I missed you all last week since my computer crapped out on me. Luckily I have a techy son and he saved everything.  I don’t really have any advice on time-saving, as I am just a kitty that chases anything shiny! I did learn a few focus tricks.. Now to put them to use!

This is week 37 of the 52-week MFRW blog challenge. This weeks topic is Five Ways to Win My Heart. This is in no particular order.

Flowers. Not from a shop but potted plants, bags of bulbs potted rose bushes. These keep on giving year after year and not only a few days. I can always clip a few to bring inside.

Doing things without being asked. My daughter is spoiling me while she is here. she sweeps, unloads the dishwasher and keeps the laundry caught up daily. My Daughter in law also spoils me by helping me weed, driving me to the store and Dr and helping cook a few times a week.

Books. Last year I had an author send me her entire series I had helped promote, beta read and reviewed. I was surprised when that box arrived totally unexpected.  I have authors send me free books quite often, and the other day one sent me two audio codes to use for any book I wanted. I would have gotten one of hers but I had them all. so I let her recommend me some.

Charm and a kind smile.  bay’s giggles, cute kitties and There s nothing like a nice smile, and someone doing something kind like opening doors, passing on favors any act of kindness. I’m a goner! I guess that’s why I love cowboy books so much.

and of course CHOCOLATE!

Now let’s go see what wins the other author’s hearts.

How many can I list? #mybadhabits #MFRWauthor #amwriting

It is time again for the 52-weekMFRWblogchallenge. It is week 35 and the topic is My Bad Habits.

At least this week it is easy. I have tons of bad habits.

 

Number one is nail biting. I have tried to stop but to no avail. I actually don’t bite my nails but the dried cuticles underneath so I always have sore looking and. I’ll never be a hand model.

#2. I constantly going around shutting doors and drawers. If something sticks out I have fixed it.

#3 I set expectations and goals so high no human can meet them. When I worked I was a manager and my to do lists for each shift were always long. It looked like a lot but would write things exactly. Most of them were small chores and I would rather they stay busy.

I believe this is why I never finish a story. I set my to do list so high that I work on it and never get to the writing part or am too tired when I do. I have whittled down a lot of my workload so that it is more attainable and to put the writing first. I will see how this happens.

I am a list maker. I have lists for everything. Cleaning, decluttering, crafts to do, crochet projects to do, gardening, menus, grocery lists, to do for writing, to do for home, schedules, I even have a list of my lists.

biting nails, not finishing what I start, too long of a list (see what I mean, setting expectations no human can meet personal and at work

I mean well…

That brings me to my writing. I have lists of stories that are finished drafts, some even completed, some that have been submitted rejected and I need to redo, lots of unfinished stories, lots of ideas for stories.

I have a bad habit of starting something then getting overwhelmed and stopping.

I may be staying on track working on a story when a new idea strikes. what can I do but stop and write it down, work out the characters. If not I will forget it.

I also have the bad habit of falling into the internet trap especially Pinterest. I can waste a full day there. I’ll pin recipes for hours and maybe use one on occasion.

Do you have any bad habits? Let’s go see what the others bad habits are?

Time for a Refill

Hi Y’all, it’s time for another MFRW52 week blog challenge post. We are on week 33 and our topic is How do you recharge?

I really need to recharge. If you’ve been following you know I have been at dads, came home to help daughter move, just a couple things on my agenda.

I wish I was like the cyberbots on old tv shows where you took my plug and plugged me into the wall, unfortunately, I lost my charger.

normally a hot soak in the tub with a glass of wine or a shot of Disorono then cuddling with my Kindle would help but with a three-year-old in the house even the bathroom isn’t private, the noise levels are defcom three. (Or 53). I can’t  drink the wine having to take my pain pills or muscle relaxers.

But things should settle down soon. And I can    Get recharged.

But the answer to the question is simple. On a normal day, I read to recharge my batteries, occasionally have a glass of wine. So fill me up, please!

Let’s go see what the others do to recharge.
