The Poet’s Tender Heart

Had to post before I could reblog. Love and hugs again.

Books Quote By Chris Colfer: “I can’t imagine…”

I just would like people to read my books and review them. I wouldn’t be an author if I didn’t have thick skin and have the strength to put myself out there.

Cholatse 6440m is a mountain in the Khumbu region of the Nepalese Himalaya. Cholatse is connected to Taboche by a long ridge. Cholatse was first climbed via the…

I love chocolate no matter what flavor it is! However, there is no way I will attempt to climb this mountain.

The Witch’s Heart By Genevieve Gornichec | Book Review

You are an excellent reviewer, one can tell you read every word of did a great job of skim reading. The book sounds like an interesting look at a Mothers’s love and her desires for her own life.

Motivational Quote By Lailah Gifty Akita: “Dance daily, you…”

We used to love to dance, and did nearly every Saturday night. I miss it.

Good Morning, Bloggers!

Just wanted to let you know the reason I will not be answering any blogs today. My goal for today is to self-publish 2 books on Amazon! My Hubby and I worked all weekend getting them ready.

The first one is Book 7 of my Young Adult series, Ruby & Nolan’s Great Adventures in Space. This one is called “Decisions.” The basic premise is that many factions have decisions to make. The Consortium from Old Earth is demanding compensation for their cost of sending colonists to what they thought was uninhabited planet now called New Earth. The Colonists must either pay what the Consortium is demanding or to deny their demands and back them up with muscle.

The Youngsters have made their way quietly to the unexplored continent across the Ocean. Their decision is when they asked for permission to explore the continent, they were told it was too dangerous! Do they wait for permission or do they go anyway? Will their parents make them come home when they discover where they are? New Earth inhabitants could be in for a bumpy ride!

The second book is called “Options,” and it has a strong Real Estate theme, but under that theme is murder and a little sexy love. I was a Realtor for 30 years and much of the fodder for my books came from that background. All the names were changed to protect the guilty! “Options” Book 2 in my Maye West Mysteries series. The first book is called “Murder on Lake Haverly.” It is available on Amazon in eBook, paperback and audio.

When I get these two books self-published I will have 14 books available on Amazon and on Barnes and Noble. If you would be so kind, please go to Amazon or Barnes and Noble and leave me a review after reading any of them. Reviews mean “everything” to authors! I will be forever grateful! I often go online and read them, it gives me courage to keep on writing.

Thank you and have a wonderful day, and stay safe!

Love Quote By Herman Hesse: “Often it is…”

This kinda reminds me of some of the people that are voted to represent their neighbors and do not appear to care a wit about them.

I Owe much to my Mother!

She would get a kick out of these, probably because she may have said them to me at one time or another. Maybe not in those same words, but the message was clear.

Please do not think she was not a good role model, she was eons before her time. If she was born in this time she would kick some ass and be successful in business.

She was a young single mother with three small kids, in the days when women could never garner the same wages as men doing the same job. Her choice of jobs was store clerk, which was a dead end job to her. Instead she cut seed, pick potatoes, beans, peas and any other job she could get.

Don’t know or care what cutting seed is? Potato farmers used their second potatoes (not good enough to sell) for seed for the next years crop. This was done by men. They straddled a barrel with a very sharp knife embedded in the end of the barrel. The potatoes were sliced into pieces with an eye on each one using the knife. She applied and the owner first thought it was too hard for a woman and finally agreed to allow her to work with the understanding she would get half the pay of the men.

She told him, “I will work one day for nothing, and if I beat all of your men in production, I get the job at the same pay.” She got the job.

She made the same bargain with the potato farmer to pick potatoes, and I personally witnessed this: She picked over 100 barrels per day. She was one tough cookie.

       1. My mother taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE.
       “If you’re going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning.”

       2. My mother taught me RELIGION.
       “You better pray that will come out of the carpet.”

       3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL.
       “If you don’t straighten up, I’m going to knock you into the middle of
 next week!”

       4. My mother taught me LOGIC.
       ” Because I said so, that’s why.”

       5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC.
       “If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to
 the store with me.”

       6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT.
       “Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you’re in an accident.”

       7. My mother taught me IRONY.
       “Keep crying, and I’ll give you something to cry about.”

       8. My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS.
       “Shut your mouth and eat your supper.”

       9. My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM.
       “Will you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!”

       10. My mother taught me about STAMINA.
       “You’ll sit there until all that spinach is gone.”

       11. My mother taught me about WEATHER.
       “This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it.”

       12 My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY.
       “If I told you once, I’ve told you a million times. Don’t exaggerate!”

       13. My mother taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE.
       “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out.”

       14. My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION.
       “Stop acting like your father!”

       15. My mother taught me about ENVY
       “There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don’t
 have wonderful parents like you do.”

Gettin’ old ain’t for Sissies!

First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your

age and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers.  Not me, I want people to know “why” I look this way.  I’ve traveled a long way and some of the roads weren’t paved.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth,

think of Algebra.

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth ~ I don’t know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young.

Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Tenth ~ Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was

called witchcraft.  Today it’s called golf.

And finally ~ If you don’t learn to laugh at trouble, you won’t have anything to laugh at when you are old.

Inspirational Quote By Thomas Merton: “Peace demands the…”

I agree with this sentiment! Weak governments demand fighting over small things, like a small piece of land! Living in peace is the most difficult thing. Allowing everyone a little piece of the pie instead of demanding all of it for yourself.
