I think Mr. Anderson is talking about life in general, and, I must say, I don't agree with him. I am above average, and it is all about my attitude. I keep going. I don't give up. I think this makes me above average no matter what results I have for my efforts. Failing doesn't make me below average. In fact, it makes me even more above average because I work that much harder to find out what went wrong and fix it.

I am on the horse again. I have figured out my own way of promoting "The Smooth Road To Transition"-by just making connections and having discussions on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. I am very encouraged by the discussions I have been having so far.
My next three books will take a fairly long time to research, so, I decided to go back to an idea I had a while back for a book and do this along with my research. It will be a book called "Arms Around Different Shores". It is a working title for now. It will be stories involving different traditions from each of the countries in the world. I have decided to start with my own country-Canada. Short stories will not take as long to writer, and I should be able to have this one available soon.
It's good to be focused again.
Here's to another busy week.

Gaudy jewelry, especially a necklace, is only one of the worst things on the planet. Ice cream after summer is over is another. I get cold easily and ice cream just makes it worse. Exuberant bad tempered people drive me crazy as well. Attacks on others, physical or emotional, make me want to cry. I don't mend socks, either. I just buy another pair. I am not that poor.
I am a positive person, and like to arrange my world in a positive way. These are just some things which cause my balance to go off at times.

The street on which we live is very small, a lane actually. In fact, that's what it's called, "Coady's Lane". There are three houses on here, and not much traffic goes by the house. There is also the Church Hall and Rectory here. I think the thing I like most is the peace. We are back away from the main road, though we only need to go on one lane and take right to get on it. Therefore, we don't get a lot of noise from traffic. On quiet nights, when their is no weather like rain, we can here the brook which babbles away not far from our apartment and the odd Loon. I love living here.

We do a half bed make up. When we get up in the morning the bed is the first thing to get done, usually. My boyfriend and I were raised to always have our bed made as soon as we got dressed. Now, we fold the comforter and sheets neatly as the bottom of the bed. It is neat but still ready to get back into that night.

Personalized ehh A new sig that I had made from one of my images.

I had a hard time with the September 11 attacks. I didn't know any of the victims personally, but the whole thing hit me strangely. I mourned these poor people like they were my own family. I watched the news pieces everyday trying to find out as much information as I could. I will try to talk about where I was, though.
I was asleep when the tragedy occurred, but my boyfriend woke me up and told me the news. It was heart breaking, and all I could think was "What sort of people would do such a horrible thing?".
Some of the planes headed for various airports in the States were re-routed here, to Canada, and the people were given a safe place to stay and taken care of. That made me so happy. These were frightened people which needed love and comfort. I am so glad they received it.
September 11, 2001 was a tragic day for everyone. I hope we have learned something from this.

I have a few blessings in my life. I have a loving family which consists in part of a wonderful boyfriend and an adorable cat. I have food on the table and a roof over my head. I am always appreciative of these two things because so many other people don't have these two basic things. I am also blessed to now be a published author like I have dreamed of being since I was a little girl. Life is good.

I only really new the maternal grandparents. My paternal grandfather died when my father was a teenager, and my paternal grandmother died when I was only two. We lived next door to my mother's parents, plus three if my aunts, when I was a child. I got to know my grandparents extremely well, and dropped the "Aunt" and "Uncle" before my aunts' and uncle's names. My grandparents were loving and caring. They were wonderful parents, from what I observed and from what my mother and her siblings have said. The believed in letting their children be the people they wanted to be. The only rule there was was their was no profanity in the house. That rule applied to both their children and grandchildren. I learned a great deal about life and the kind of person I wanted to become from Nanny and Poppy. I wanted to be just like them. I am happy to say, that I have made great strides in this direction.
I will always remember my grandparents and the love they freely gave.

The hurricane has ended up here after us hearing warnings about it all week. Like always, thankfully, our province is getting the tail end. There is a strong wind now, and we are expecting some rain fall tonight. The West Coast of my province will be hit harder. I will be spending my time inside today. The wind is making it rather chilly.

I remember a day early in autumn. It was a bright morning, sunny. I was in Grade 7. I grew up in a small town, and my school was only a short distance from our home. My mother and I decided to walk to school that morning. She is a retired teacher and worked at the same school I went to elementary school in. It was a gorgeous morning. We had always liked to enjoy the warm weather before it went away for good.
