K’s Blog Recommendations 8.23.2018

“When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.” – Wayne Dyer

Good morning!!  

It’s that time to share my discoveries! 

What a “sensational” experience, in all definitions of that adjective!  

**Remember, my job is not to judge!

**It is to maintain an open mind, learn, respect, and appreciate all types of blogs.

**Often I realize, the more posts I read, the more I learn about myself.

Whether, I discover my strengths or a weakness, it truly doesn’t matter.

I am growing, ever changing, all because of my openness to absorb the uniquely

talented blogger’s ideas and thoughts, that I have the privilege to discover!

**Thank you all for allowing me the chance to get to know you!

Shopping Trip

Run to the store

After work.

Pick up a few

From my mini list.

Overstuff my

Carry basket.

Checkout line

Ringing out.

Look behind,

There’s quite a line!

Seems I arrived

At the perfect time!

Feeling successful,

And compassionate.


Make some room

For the gal’s heavy things

Behind me.

Bagged up

Payment made

Off I start to go.

An Ol’ neighbor

Shouts a sweet hello.

I answer back

With a “How are you?”

Quick exchange.


And a grocery store

In a small town.

Not one person knew

I conquered

A panic attack

To be there.

Kind Regards

and # winning – K


Insomnia fun?

Saturday’s are my, “let the week go” day.

Often I meander through the day in a haze after an almost sleepless Friday night.

I’m trying some new tricks to change that.

Going to bed earlier on Friday, keeping a regulated sleep schedule. Visualization of blue skies, sunshine along with some “head start” odds and ends housework.

It’s an uphill climb, but I am gaining! 💃

A trick my daughter taught me – using Dawn.

Simply put a touch, in water, in a sticky sauce pan and heat on low.

This makes for easier clean up.

My results from yesterday.

Attack of the bubble monster? Ha! Ha!

The good news! Not only did it work fabulously for easy clean up, but it also gave me a giggle and a photo op!

What more could a gal ask for?


Is it only a NH country bumpkin that can appreciate such simple self-entertainment?

Kind Regards, dishes done and still chuckling -K


Wishing You the Best Day!

I’m Singing –

“Every morning I wake up… I say a little prayer for you.”

soul happty

That moment you awake, 

Swirling ’bout your mind

A random  upbeat song,

Somehow sparkles

From some memory 

You dreamt,

While you were deep in sleep,

You head  to start the coffee


Doing a hallway boogie


Your soul overflows with tune.

Feeling jovial and  free.

Pondering only  a moment

 I wonder

 A Morning starting  with music,

What else can be this sweet?

Dionne Warwick- Click here

Wouldn’t it be  fabulous if we could find a way to hang onto that morning musical feeling all day!!

Music really does seem to elevate our positive mind!

It helps me to block out the toxic environment around me, whether it  be  a person  or

just the negativity of the atmosphere.

If you are able, try to find a way to include music through out your  day.

Sing a little ditty, find some headphones and play it at your desk or in  your office.

Go for a drive at lunchtime  and ‘CRANK THOSE TUNES”!

Kind Regards and singing – K

I was travelling down a beautiful scenic road … but I was headed straight for a rut!

Copyrighted and compliments of K’s daughter

 In the last week, I have used the word Inspirational and or inspiring well OVER 100 times. Suddenly, here I am, sitting smack dab in the middle of Rut city! You know the one, most recognizable by it’s infamous neighborhood located on Writer’s Block Lane.

Almost everyone I know has made this journey to the Rut city a time or two or three. I’m not sure how one programs their GPS to get here. I just know it’s a top touristy place a lot of people visit.  And, it is time for me to depart.

Thus this list!

Thank-you’s & A List of 100 Songs That Help Keep me Happy!

Thank you Zen to zany!


Happy hump day! Well Wednesday is the day I am starting to write this, though by the time I actually hit POST, it will be at least Thursday. There is work to be done, writing, more writing, further research, writing, rewriting, verification of writing, editing, re-edit, re-read, review, edit, review, repeat all the above etc…


First, I am the type of person that believes in giving credit where credit is due. On this journey  that I have only just begun, many people have inspired, promoted and helped me.  I hope you don’t mind but I have some shout outs- These may become part of a weekly routine.  Let’s see how it goes, shall we? I welcome your thoughts on the idea, so please leave me a comment.

My first shout out is to Robert Farrington of The College Investor – He shares his knowledge on passive income, getting out of student loan debt along with other financial expertise that I devour every chance I get. He continuously asks for, seems to genuinely enjoy and replies to feed back.  Robert, the last time we touched base was on March 31st via email. It was the day I signed up for Amazon’s MTurk , after reading your in-depth overview, along with helpful do’s and don’t suggestions on the site. I just wanted to let you know as of yesterday I am over 2000 hits with a 97.7% accuracy rate! Definitely, a worthwhile venture and the extra cash has come at a perfect time. Thank you so very much!

My second shout out goes to someone who’s blog post I stumbled onto just yesterday. As I have mentioned, trying to read 2-3 new a week is my ambitious goal. Here is a hearty HOLY COW, spot on and thank you to Patrick Cole for the blog post on Thought Catalog entitled “What I Learned From Dating An Introvert (And What You Should Know Before You Do)” Link: Blog post Thought Catalog. A very insightful piece of the characteristics of an introvert and I know ‘cuz I is one. Obviously, like all human beings, each of us are uniquely different individuals. But, I must say the apt description of how draining a crowd environment can be, left me thinking –  WOWSER! I do believe someone has read my mind! Kudos!! 

The third and final shout out for today is to 4 very inspirational blogs and their writers. Thank you for the endless support and encouragement as I walk this part of my life path. This quote is dedicated to each of you: “Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground.  Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it…” ~ Wilferd Peterson  Gosh!! I feel like I am doing the Oscars, listed in no planned order;

I Know I Made You Smile


Hi there!  Are you still with me? Now for today’s HAPPY LIST! I have eluded to the positive stimulation that music can have on our mood in a prior post and am sure this will not be the last time it is mentioned. It is my constant friend always accessible and totally dependable. After all-

“Music is therapy. Music moves people. It connects people in ways that no other medium can. It pulls heart strings. It acts as medicine.” –  Macklemore

Music can spark a fond memory, bring out my jovial and silly playful side.  Heck, I can recall driving to work one day, I was in my own little world, had the radio cranked  and was just belting out lyrics, totally off key to one of my favorite songs. Stopped at a red light, I glanced to the left and there sitting right beside me, was a guy in a big ol’ pick up truck just grinning from ear to ear watching and listening. My face must have turned about 17 shades of red to purple, the light turned green and off I went. The brief incident still makes me belly chuckle when I think about it. (blush)

Lover of “tuneage” that I am, I’m terrible at remembering names of songs and their artists. So, I poled a few friends, searched my memory banks, hung out with Pandora and You Tube the last few days to bring you a little something special. A list off 100 songs that get my feet tapping and gives a boost to my spirit. I think there is a little bit of something for everyone. As an added bonus I threw in a few links here and there so you can have an audio experience too. They are in NO PAR-TIK-YA-LAR order.

than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music is the electrical soil
