Not doing the greatest at this writing for forty days thing.

Took a mini beach vacation in the middle of this week, (some pictures below).  Today is Saturday and I will write more on my novel, and tomorrow is Mother's Day, probably no writing on that day when one has ten kids!  Probably will be going out to breakfast, lunch and dinner and taking phone calls the rest of the day!  Whew!

Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I am still trying to keep up with this 40 days of writing. catch me later at the first of next week for more writing.

And have a happy Mother's Day!

R & R

We're off on an adventure today.  Rented a cabin at Fort Steven's State Park near Astoria Oregon for some R & R.  Ahhh, so peaceful and quiet here (until hubby's car alarm went off accidentally :)  Sitting here enjoying the view from the kitchen table over a cup of tea.

 A little difficult to get my mobile to post pics, so I'll share more when I get home.

Day 13 - - -

Well, I missed posting on Saturday and Sunday, but I did write on other projects, so I feel I am doing well with this writing for 40 days determination. (See first post here.)

It's harder than one might think to follow thru with 40 days of anything.  It involves will power! And as I said before staying focused on the final destination--this one being a habit of writing daily.

  So for today's submission, here is a little poem about our new month of May.

May, traditionally a month of flowers
brought from the April showers. 
Spring brought us May Day poles 
and garden Easter egg rolls. 

All beautiful symbols of peace
But our symbols have been fleeced--
by people who protest in streets--
too bad they don't choose peace.
