Always Jonesing for a Good Book

Give me a reason to read
A devastating male lead
I want a heroine tough
Some action a wee bit rough

Genres? Tried pretty much all
Romance is my siren call
I hate drama and horror
One’s scary, one’s a borer

Romance sub-genres wide spread
Billionaires, bikers, undead
Historical and modern
They all seem to get a turn

Motorcycle gangs are fine
I love a bad boy; he’s mine
If he has a heart of gold
Totally, completely sold

Rock stars are my kryptonite
Guitars and pants they keep tight
I love their bands and their life
It’s all glamour, glitz and strife

Vampires, weres, witches are cool
Their strength, speed, skills all rule
The undead scene in the night
Just not too graphic, alright?

I hate excess violence
It makes me sick and too tense
An animal dies, I’m done
A happy ending is rule one

I prefer love and romance
That sweet, tense, intricate dance
Not too much angst or delay
They just cause stress and dismay

I want a book I can’t drop
One that consumes me full stop
That kind are seldom and rare
Is there one like that out there?

Our Love

ringsOur love sometimes seems so unreal

Especially the way you make me feel

Coming up on twenty-seven years

Good love is harder than it appears

We work hard to stay together

There are storms we’ve had to weather

Distance love is not for the weak

Nor is it for the timid or the meek

Your voice on the phone is what I crave

Whenever I feel lost or less than brave

I’ve cried my share of lonely tears

But I know you suffer the same fears

Hard to believe we’ve been “us” for so long

And the passion and love is still so strong

You’d like me to come out in the truck

But I don’t have the wanderlust or pluck

So I keep the home fires burning

While you keep the truck wheels turning

Some day soon we will be in the same place

And I again get to see your sweet face

For more than a night or two at a time

And my happiness will be sublime


Blogging from A to Z Challenge for April 2015

I’ve decided to join the A to Z Blogging Challenge for April –  I know. I know.  Isn’t my life already crazy enough?  Like I need one more thing on my schedule! Consistently posting every day will certainly be a challenge for me, but I think it will be worth it.

I don’t really have a theme in mind.  I think the alphabet itself will be “theme” enough for this blogger!

atoz-theme-reveal-2015Like my blog, my topics will probably be all over the place.  I’ll write about whatever strikes me that day. The goal is to post every day in April except for Sundays.  The blog posts will follow the letters of the alphabet. On April 1st, I will blog about something that starts with the letter “A”.  On the 2nd, I move on to “B”, etc.

seraPerhaps I’ll try a short story or two.  Maybe I’ll write about A to Z in the squirrel world.  I could do A to Z in book reviews, flowers and gardening or animals and pets I’ve known. I could cover A to Z about my experiences as a trucker’s wife or as a Mom who’s spent many years dealing with Autism spectrum disorders or juvenile Diabetes. In any event, I hope to enjoy the heck out of myself and get in some much-needed blogging enjoyment time.







I miss blogging. I really do.

How does everyone manage it?

I’d like to share a thought or two

I am devoid of every bit

I am having problems with stress

Hard work messing with blood pressure

Feels like my life is just a mess

Need a bit of a refresher

Taking care of me needs my time

Need to slow it down a bit more

Less work and school, more fun and rhyme

Life is worth it, and that’s for sure
