I started April with the best of intentions.
I had a couple of rhyming children’s picture books and thought it would be a good idea to get some in-depth rhyming know-how from all the experts blogging over at Angie Karcher’s RhyPiBoMo. And it has been seriously in-depth! You can’t sign up for the challenge at this point, but you can most certainly benefit from a read-through, no matter what kind of rhyme you write.
I haven’t had much time for the challenge–or even a chance at a read-through. Mom took a terrible tumble a week or so ago and I’ve been in Savannah, where I stayed at my parents’ house at the beach. But Dad had disconnected the Internet.
You do not realize how dependent you are on technology until you don’t have it.
Anyway, after a whirlwind of catching up–and honestly, there’s just so much information that one can catch up on after a week offline–I sent a post over to the Muffin where I was scheduled for April 20th. I’ll be catching up with the Beneficent Mr. Hall (and really, Mister Man is a good egg, and I should be happy that the house is still standing, but how does a body not notice a zillion sugar ants parading around the kitchen???). Next, I’ll be preparing for Holy Week, so I won’t be working for a few days. But I hope you’ll have a minute to check out my Easter post, “Finding a Writing Eggs-travaganza,” in between the deviled eggs and ham.
And if I could ask one more favor, if you have time to add one little thing to your list of intentions?
Please send prayers for Mom. Thank you.
Oh those sugar ants! I’ve got them everywhere and by now I’m just treating them like members of the family. They help themselves to the honey and carry off any crumbs we miss with the broom. 🙂 And of course, prayers continue for your Mom. I hope you have a calm, contemplative, and peaceful Holy Week.
Thanks, Debra! The sugar ants are vanquished, and calm and contemplative was exactly what I needed this Easter. ♥
Sorry your mom suffered a fall, do hope she’s recovered well. Prayers and good wishes coming your way.
Thanks, Lisa. Every little prayer helps!
Hang in there, Cathy! Sending good wishes to your Mom and to all of you!
Thank you, Madeline!
Cathy–I’ll send healing thoughts in your mom’s direction.
Ants? At least ants in your house is better than ants in your pants.
Hahahhaa! I’m pretty sure I’ve had ants in my pants…in my armpits, my hair, my shoes, Sioux. And thanks for the healing Mom thoughts!
Just back from Passover in Boston. My mom’s computer is so old that it takes 2 mins to open a web page! (No, it’s not dial-up!) so I don’t do much Internet there. Okay, maybe a little on my tablet but that print is so small I have to hold the magnifier in one hand, tap keys with the other hand that gets old. Quickly. But I digress… So sorry to hear of your mom’s fall. Absolutely sending healing prayers her way! Have a lovely Easter.
Thanks, Gail! Easter has been lovely. Hope your Passover was lovely, too!
Sending prayers and warm thoughts your way.
