30 Days of Gratefulness: Day 3

30 Days of Gratefulness: Day 3

Posted November 3, 2017 by Fizzy Pop in 30 Days, Gratefulness / 2 Comments

I’m somehow drawn to challenges. Song challenges, writing challenges, Sims challenges, just about any challenge. While tossing around blog ideas with my partner in crime the idea to do a monthly challenge came up. I was hesitant to move this to the blog but then tossed it up and said ‘why not?’. Here you have it, my first 30 Day Challenge. Every day this month I’ll post a Gratefulness or Gratitude prompt. I’d really enjoy hearing your input on this prompt as well in the comments below. Today’s prompt: Wow, talk about going deep fast, I might get the bends coming back up from this one.  I’d better be grateful for all the things money can’t buy since I like to announce I’m poor all the time.  However, the truth is I’m so much richer than so many people I have met.  I’m rich with friendship and love.  I’m rich […]

Today’s prompt: This is a no-brainer in my world.  I’m most grateful for fuzzy socks.  They top my Christmas list every year but I’d gladly accept a pair, or 20, at any time of the year.  As a person who has difficulty maintaining and regulating my body temperature constant coldness is a real thing.  I wear fuzzy socks year round.  They keep my […]

BOOK REVIEW: Pockets of Joy by Roxane Battle

BOOK REVIEW: Pockets of Joy by Roxane Battle

Picture it, Sicily 1922 … I so frequently think that as I sit down to write a review of a memoir or biography.  It’s not Sicily, it’s the Twin Cities.  It’s not 1922 however it is 19-something.  A woman with a goal, ambition and a family that finds itself shrinking in ways that the woman never anticipated.  No one starts life and a family anticipating divorce.  Roxane didn’t either.  She still had a goal and ambition to go with her new life as a single mother of an infant son.  Like the rest of us, she made hard choices, many times putting her small family before her goals and ambitions.  She made hard choices to give up promotions.  She made hard choices that made her viewing public (did I forget to mention she was in TV broadcasting?) question her dedication to her chosen field.  She gave up so much along […]

Honestly, this won’t make sense to a lot of you but the inspiration behind the Nano novel I started a couple of years ago […]
