#MirthMusicMon – I Recognize that look!

27 Feb

Sorry, guys. Computer’s on the fritz. Still. Again. Grrr…
Hopefully Lonnie can work some magic and get things working correctly soon. :/
Have a great week. 🙂

Rose's Road

Monday snuck up on us again.

Someone should start a petition or something. 😉

For this Mirth and Music Monday I did a little digging and found a cute scene fragment from one of The Thin Man movies.

Hehe, I earn that look from my husband at least once a week. 😀

For a bit of fun:

#MirthMusicMon – Anglophile Confessions

7 Nov

Sorry, guys, not sure what Kathleen did, but about 10 keys on my laptop aren’t working right now . Hopefully it will be easily fixed, but for now I’m stuck using the on-screen keyboard . Nice to have the option, otherwise I  wouldn’t have even been able to put in the password to turn the poor abused thing on. :/

But, now that I got a post out I get to reward myself with a mug of tea and a chocolate covered blintz. Yum. 🙂

.

Anglophile means someone who really likes British culture, people, their royalty, etc., and I am one. Having lived in England for 4 years as a child, it’s not surprising that I love quite a b…

#MirthMusicMon – Songs of the Farmer

24 Oct

It’s harvest time again! 🙂

Rose's Road

This past week or two it is very obvious that I live in an agricultural area.

Grain is being harvested, straw and hay are being baled, and the onions are getting their pre-harvest attention. There is a ton of dust in the air.

I’m not complaining, though.

Even though I have never participated in the farming process I love to watch the fields change through the year. It makes me happy to see winter wheat sprouting in the early spring and drive past rows of ripening corn in the summer.

That is probably why I love these songs so much.  🙂

#MirthMusicMon – Procrastination 6-5000

26 Sep

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. I’ve been working on building an offline business, which I may or may not share with my personal blog following, not sure yet. We shall see what the consensuses is among those I trust with my safely and security. 🙂
So, while I am not procrastinating on most things, it is a chore to try and fit everything in right now. But I really do not want this blog to fall by the wayside. I’ll just have to put more effort into working on it when the mood strikes. 😀
I hope you all have a great week!

Rose's Road

This procrastination thing has my life all wrapped up.

It’s around my writing, blogging, social life, housework, even eating my meals, for heaven’s sake!

One of the few things I procrastinated on was getting photos of Kathleen in the Easter dress my mother knitted for her. Win!One of the few things I didn’t procrastinate on was getting photos of Kathleen in the Easter dress my mother knitted. Win!

So it was nice to come across a video that explains what I’m going through, with a bit of humor.

Now I just need to figure out a way to make self-imposed deadlines more…scary?

Any suggestions?

Seriously, any ideas?

Your input may just get this highly distractable brain into gear.

The music bit was easy. I found something I hadn’t heard in a while; and as you can see it made for an interesting post title. Bonus! lol

Why Your Blog’s About Page Is Completely Wrong by JOEL FRIEDLANDER

3 Jun

I’m going to have to freshen up my About page, and this angle should be applied to my Book page, as well. If you have a blog, or some other platform where you’re trying to get people interested in what it is you do, this might be an interesting read.

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Blogging is important for authors. Lots of people consider it almost mandatory if you take your publishing career seriously.

And so hordes of writers have started blogs, and some have gone on to great success building robust platforms that allow them to communicate with fans, announce new books or other products or services, and stay in constant communication with readers.

Yes, it’s great when it works. But too often, blogs don’t work. They don’t attract readers, or if they do, readers don’t hang around for long. Even blogs with good content can languish, unread, until the blogger just gives up, probably thinking, “it just didn’t work for me.”

There are lots of reasons that blogs fail. Lack of traffic is the most common, but often the people who come to the blog just never engage. And it’s that engagement that should be our guide when we’re creating basic pages on…

#MirthMusicMon – Minions in Pink

Would YOU have passed this test?

22 Dec

Here’s a mid-week chuckle for you. 🙂

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

You are driving down the road in your Corvette on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car?

Think before you continue reading.

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application.

You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first.

Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back.

However, you may…

Feel Like A Fraud? Give Imposter Syndrome The Middle Finger!

3 Nov

There are times I have to remind myself that I actually am the author of a book of poetry. But the next though is that it’s not that great, or even very long.
Talk about self-demoralizing. :/ Do you have Impostor Syndrome?

Sacha Black

Imposter Syndrome

Does anyone else struggle to celebrate success? Maybe you ran a marathon, got a new job, published your first book, or even your third? Did you celebrate? Or like me, did you brush your last achievement under the carpet? And no,  sending a text to tell a friend, sitting down to have a cupper or casually dropping into conversation you latest accomplishments does not constitute a celebration.

So why do we do it? Why are so many of us completely incapable of accepting praise, or internalising our achievements and attributing them to hard work and a bit of sweat rather than ‘luck’ or external factors?

#MirthMusicMon – A Kitten and Fever

18 May

My 3.75 month old daughter has not been sleeping well the last couple days. As a result my brain is fried and she’s still jumping me through hoops as she fusses at me…Especially, it seems, when I attempt to be productive. Oh, well. :/

Rose's Road

It’s that day of the week again.

The one where a small group of bloggers work toward the mutual goal of making you laugh and then listen to some music.

That’s right, Mirth and Music Monday.  😀

This week I came across a video that, yes, is an ad for cat food, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t funny.

Totally unrelated in any context is a song I really like:
