Gratitude Is Good On Other Days Too

This month has been a particularly busy one for me. I have hardly been able to post in an organized fashion and it seems like I’m scrabbling to put posts up before the ones queued up finish being put up! ( I hope that no one else noticed my seemingly hurried attempts now and then to take part in the rest of our wonderful WordPress community that I have missed so much. The attempts felt rather pitiful to me and I hope this sentence was a pleasant surprise.)

Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone who has taken the time to stop by here on my blog even as I haven’t been as attentive of it as I was in times past.

Thank you, everyone!


Goosey Gander – Thankful Thursday

Today I am grateful for my awesome neighbor, Marcia, who came and helped me pluck and then butcher one of our geese. We had a lot of fun even though we still needed my sister to give instructions over the phone.

Check out the original Thankful Thursday. (I will update link when able.)


One of the stupidest things she’d ever done was taking too long to realize how he’d felt about her. It wasn’t the stupidest because, honestly? There was a really long list of things that could and did qualify for that, but picking out of the many options was impossible.

But that wasn’t the point.

She was an idiot and she had hurt someone who was dear to her in an immeasurable way and she didn’t know what to do to fix it.

If it could even be fixed in the first place. That was how badly she had screwed up, because she didn’t even know if anything could be done.

Little snippets seem to be the order for this universe at the moment. Just so as not to be confusing, this isn’t about Star or Comet like it usually is, this is a little snippet from Solaris’s POV before she becomes queen. Waaaaay before she becomes queen.


Remember where you came from, if

Only to not end up back at the start.

Of course sometimes you need to return

To remember something that you’ve lost.

So work on establishing a link without losing what growth you’ve reached.


It is important to never forget where you started, but to not live in the past.
