A to Z Challenge (V)

V – Valley

AZ Book

I live in the Annapolis VALLEY and this weekend is the 87th Annual Apple Blossom Festival.  Which means, there are fireworks and a parade, and a fair, and tons of bands and dances and music and food and drink.  And lots of people.  Lots and lots of people.  It’s basically a homecoming for us.  I’m excited.

A to Z Challenge (U)

U – Unique

In a world full of sheep, be unique.

It’s okay to not go with the flow.  It’s okay to shine and to sparkle.  Smile.  Stand out.  It’s okay to go against the norm.  And with a little glisten and glitter in your eyes.

A to Z Challenge (T)

T – Throwing Darts

atoz

Sometimes, people throw darts (metaphorically) to see what they hit.  Whether it’s for a potential relationship, or job interest, or gossip, or whatever.  The darts get thrown to see what gets hit.  If you’re throwing the darts, be careful of your aim.  Sometimes, those darts hit hard.

A to Z Challenge (S)

S – Sparkles

logo2_2x

One of my colleagues refers to me as “Sparkles”.  I have a sparkly personality, I’m told.  Although, I do try my darnedest to keep things light and sparkly and fun.  Although, it seems this last month or so some of my sparkle has faded.  But, it’s coming back.

A to Z Challenge (R)

R- Rare

AZ Book

Finding a decent person or friend can often be rare.  So when you find that person – a good-spirited, kind, patient, and understanding human, hang onto him or her.  Those people, it seems in this day and age, are a rarity.  Unique little gems.

A to Z Challenge (Q)

Q – Quiet

atoz

Sometimes life gets to too loud.  Literally and metophorically.

I don’t like noise.  I have sensitive ears and I hate it when it’s loud….literally…mentally…emotionally.  I like quiet.  And sometimes, a little bit of quiet and peace can make you feel rejuvenated.  Better.  Getting away from it all.

A to Z Challenge (P)

P – Peace (and Patient and Passionate and Pleasant)

atoz

I look forward to the day I can have peace – of mind and in my soul and in my heart.  Reduce the chaos and live peacefully.

I appreciate the people who are patient and pleasant and I try to live as much the same way as possible.  I live as passionately about things that I can.  I want to provide peace and patients and pleasantries to those around me.

A to Z Challenge (P)

P – Promises

logo2_2x

People make promises.  People break promises.  It happens.  But sometimes, the promises that are made and that are then broken can be devastating.

Why do that?  Don’t just lie.  Don’t make promises you know you’re not going to keep.  Just be truthful to the person you’re promising to.  Don’t a coward.

Broken promises hurt.  Continued promises give us hope but still hurt.

O – Oasis

For years, I have dreamed about going to Greece and travelling the country-side.  Greece has been my oasis destination.

A to Z Challenge (N)

N – Nuisance

AZ Book

I try not to be a nuisance.  I want to be helpful and kind.  I don’t want to be the type of person who seems more like a chore than anything else.  There are those I know who are exactly that.  And I wonder….am I that way too?
