Celebrate: Childhood Memories & Freebies


Every Saturday night in the 70s my family would gather in the living room with a big plate of Mom's chocolate brownies and watch a set list of shows:




Such happy memories!!
That made me think of a candy I loved as a child that I never see anymore - Candy Dots

And this toy I desperately wanted as a kid -- Operation!

Do you have fond memories of special TV shows, candy, or toys you loved as a kid?

Celebrate: I'm Back!


I'm Baaaaack!

This week I'm celebrating:

1) My vacay left me feeling relaxed, content, and ready to go back to work on my WIP without stressing out. (I hope that lasts...)
2) While I can't really bust a move like the dancers above, my toe has healed enough that I can walk like a normal human being (or Walk Like an Egyptian)!

I've noticed that sometimes in my dreams I can sing like Celine Dion, tap-dance like Gregory Hines, and play the piano like my mother. (She was very good.) I guess this is some kind of wish fulfillment since I wish I could really do those things.

Do you have abilities in your dreams you wish you had in real life?

Celebrating: Vacation

I'm celebrating vacation time!!  
I'm smiling as big as the ones in the above picture - 
although I'm not sure which I resemble most...

Have a wonderful week, everyone, and I'll be back in mid-September!

Have you taken a vacation this summer?  Did you go anywhere or was it a "stay-cation"?
