March 2018 Dares

march 2018 dares

Well … that month flew by! And I say that practically every month, but this time it was true because there are only twenty-eight days in February (takes me by surprise every time) so the month did fly by.

Literally. It was flying past my window the other night, and I was like, “Feb … where ya goin’, man?” And Feb said, “I’m leaving this place! I’m sick of the in-between-ish weather and the corny Valentine’s lines.” #TrueStory

February was actually a fairly productive month for me … but you might not know it by looking at my dares since there’s a lot of red. (But hey, Valentine’s = red so I had to stick with the theme.) Hopefully March will be just as productive – and a bit more organized. 😉

February 2018 Dares

February2018 Dares

Guess what? It’s already the last day of January! Isn’t that beyond unbelievable? Why, I remember December 31st like it was yesterday. *ripple dissolve*

Seriously, though, folks. I’m excited for February!* I don’t have a lot of great plans for the month, but I’m glad to be starting anew. A lot of things about January didn’t turn out the way I’d planned, so … yep. New beginnings are good!

But … don’t get me wrong! There were good – great – things about January. Let’s review them now!

*as excited for the rain-and-clouds month as one can possibly be …

Kell in Cal(ifornia)

As most of you know, I took a trip to California with my parents last week. I took quite a few pictures while I was there, and today I’ll be sharing a few of them with you.

However, before you move on to my excellent photography, I’d like to direct you attention to this poll. If you have a moment, hop over there and vote for The Lady of the Vineyard! If TLOTV gets enough votes, it will be “Book of the Month” over there are Long and Short Reviews (YA), which would be a huge honor for me. 🙂

Now, without further ado, the California trip!

February 2017 Spotlight: Goals and Titles (Again)

Sorry about the post being so late, guys. I’ve been distracted … by How to Train Your Dragon. What? I need to spend more time with my brothers, so … okay, you’ve got me; I like HTTYD. Then I’ve been in this kinda mood these last couple days:

And my family is like this:

And I reply:

And/or:

Seriously, though, we’re gonna have an awesome spotlight this month. So read on, and you’ll … I don’t know. Enjoy this post. And just remember …

Nothing More From Life by Kellyn Roth

Rain, Floor, Water, Wet, Drops

It’s been raining pretty hard for a couple days now. Our yard is pretty drenched. But you know what? I like the rain! And that inspired the following poem:

Nothing More From Life

I ask nothing more from life

Than to stand out in the rain

And smell the air so crispy fresh

And feel myself grow sane.

*

I ask nothing more of life

Than to in the puddles leap

And walk through the freezing air

And wade through cold stream deep.

*

I ask nothing more from life

Than a crackling fire

A book, hot cocoa, and a blanket

That is my heart’s desire!

To be fair, this ^ was taken the day before yesterday … before the rain began … as evidenced by the sunlight … but I had to share this adorableness with the world. 😉 She has her teddy! Well, technically, my old doll’s teddy. It’s so cute!

Well? What do you think (of the poem, not the cat)? Constructive criticism is welcome! 🙂
