Writing 101, Day Eight: Cash and Carry Barn is a great find


writing-101-june-2014-class-badge-2

Go to a local café, park, or public place and report on what you see. Get detailed: leave no nuance behind.

To drive past The Cash and Carry Barn which is located at 951 Lafayette Rd, Clarksville, TN 37042 it looks like a monument store.  If you have kept driving you have missed out on a huge treat.  They are so much more. (931) 503-9921 is their number to call.

Rather than skip the adverbs I had a better idea.  Show you.  Since they are open year round they have lots of pictures on their Facebook page.

Saturday Mornings there means fresh baked goods:

Then there is the homemade salsa, pickles, relishes, various apple butters, pie fillings and fresh baked pies.

Did I mention the fresh vegetables.  They are open year round.  They have a great green house.

Yes they work hard at the monuments.  Behind the scenes there is so much more… Go and see it for yourself when you are in the area.  Tell them that Tammye and Emmanuel sent you.

Daily Prompt: Food Good For The Soul


CIMG0114

Daily Prompt: Food for the Soul (and the Stomach)

by michelle w. on November 11, 2013

Tell us about your favorite meal, either to eat or to prepare.
Does it just taste great, or does it have other associations?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FOOD.

In our home I cook from scratch for almost every meal that we have.
I use corn free products and shop at our local Korean Market to purchase items such as Rice Flour or Potato Starch, Rice Starch and Panko.

My Italian Bread Crumbs have to start with the Panko and then add my own Italian Spices.
Some we actually grow on our window sill in Winter months.

Our treat is when we can make a meal with guests visiting and then make a video while making the meal.

It not only creates a memory that will last, inspires our creative juices and makes the meal more interesting.

CIMG0001 CIMG0002 CIMG0003 CIMG0004 CIMG0005CIMG0014

To have fun, and enjoy a nutritious meal with friends…

Who could ask for anything more.

Special shout out to our Veterans today and their Spouses… Thank you for your service to our Country!

Daily Prompt: Popping A Pill Instead Of Eating?


Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill

If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NOURISHMENT.

I have days where this would absolutely be ideal.  It would grow tiresome though as I do love to cook.
I love spending time in my kitchen and the food preparation  is partially what it is all about.
If I popped a pill that would mean that there would never be any more food videos.

That would make me sad.






I did not realize that I had made six videos already till I went to put them on here.

I have actually been tempted to make another one lately.
I just have not found the recipe that sparks me to do it.

What recipe would you like to see made so that you would learn how to make it fast and easily?

Perhaps your responses will spark my next video…all comments will be considered.

If you have a favorite recipe that you would like to be made into a video just send it to my email.

Here are the responses that other Daily Prompt Writers had today about the little pill of nutrition:

  1. Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill | Basically Beyond Basic
  2. Free Your Stomach, and the Rest Will Follow | Do Not Get Sick in the Sink, Please
  3. What’s for dinner – Red pill or Blue Pill | Nanuschka’s Blog
  4. So sad! | Vivir, que no es poco
  5. Things That Pill Could Never Supply You With | Daily Prompt: Red Pill, Blue Pill | likereadingontrains
  6. dining with you, a haiku | charlottesville winter
  7. Pills | Cat’s Chinwag
  8. I’d swallow it. Especially if it just shut my selves up. | thoughtsofrkh
  9. Popping Pills | Hope* the happy hugger
  10. Time to eat! | Penne 4 Your Thoughts
  11. The Pill | Matthew Vett’s Development Blog

Road Trip A-Z Challenge Day 6


Post A-to-Z Road Trip [2013]

 

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/2013/05/want-to-join-us-for-ultimate-road-trip.html
http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/p/2012-to-z-challenge-sign-up-list.html

So excited to start the journey today to tell you about an awesome site that found me…

http://homecomingvets.com/

About

 

This blog is dedicated to Canada’s homecoming vets and their families.

People forget that soldiers returning home are not the only victims of the wars they’ve fought. So are their loved ones, families and friends. They need as much social assistance as the soldiers themselves. Those coming home are forever changed. They have experienced things the rest of us can’t imagine. They carry this psychological burden for the rest of their lives.

After eight years of fighting in Afghanistan, the public needs to get behind our vets and demand the social services they deserve and need. This is the most important tribute we can give our returning vets for the sacrifices they’ve made on behalf of our country.

Our next stop on the road trip is to a different type of blog that I really love a DIY spot.

http://diaryofamadcrafter.wordpress.com

I’m an avid crafter, and I love cooking and baking. I’m a nail technician and a salesassociate at Michael’s Art’s & Crafts (where I spend my entire paycheck before I get it each week). When I’m not working, I’m crafting and spending time with my husband and our pupperoni, Roscoe. I made my first shirt when I was 5 years old on my little, yellow, plastic sewing machine. I have my Mom to thank for that! I always remember crafting with her since before I can remember. When I was about 20, I became a vegan and started cooking up a storm, because if you’re a vegan, you better learn to cook! I started off with the Boca burgers and all that processed stuff, and realized that although it was vegan, wasn’t too healthy. Enter The Natural Gourmet Institute. GREAT experience, but I’d NEVER do it again….I had a 2 hour commute every morning and evening, and once I started my internship at Pure Food and Wine, I would be in the city ALL day and then come home, pass out and wake up to do it all over again. On my weekends, I’d have my nail clients, leaving me with no time to do anything! After school, I began working at Pure Food and Wine, in which I still had a pretty sucky commute, but LOVED the job. After I left Pure, I pretty much enjoyed having about half a year doing NOTHING, and then began working at Michaels. Two months after I started there, my husband proposed to me, and alllll the stressfulness of planning a wedding left me with no time, or energy to cook, or craft. FINALLY, about 5 months after the wedding, I’m back!! It took way too long, but I’m LOVING it.

So anyyyways, I started this blog because whenever I’d post something on Pinterest, I’d have to try to describe how I made it in as little words as possible in a little comment box….obnoxious. So now that I have a blog (which everyone on my Facebook prompted me to create after my endless picture posts of what I created throughout the day) and I can finally share with everyone what I’ve made, and help them create it too! Because there is nothing in the world I love more than getting someone as excited as I do about making something your own! Pretty much everything that I’ve been making lately has been inspired by Pinterest; in my opinion, the best invention EVER.

Be sure to like her on Face Book while you are there too…

Next stop is for a great place to find a good laugh or two…

http://imagesonconcretewordsonpaper.wordpress.com

just as the title says this blog is about words, images, solid, statements, foundations, what goes on paper, what is on the ground, growth, and whatever the blogger

SAMSUNG

part of my family knows about a terrifying moment of my life when I was finding myself as a teen. I was routinely use for sexual purposes by a man who at first I thought was a friend, I could trust. He took me to a place an apartment suite in the west end of Edmonton. A suite he had access to which became a part of my dirty secret for over 3 years. He even took me to his home and had on the bed he shared with his wife, I felt evil I hate myself for not saying anything at the time.
He gave me money and made sex into means of gaining favour from others. I was confused and hurt.
I had come out of the Glenrose School Hospital for sick children’s, 3rd floor mental health ward for children. I was not behaving like a boy, more like a female. I love sewing, cooking, flowers, crafts, etc. I was told that I could not do those things and put in a workshop to do so called ‘boys’ stuff. I was so confused and struggled with the fact that I was called a fag or sissy yet confused, I liked others boys I wanted to be housewife one day. The sexual things started as I was beginning to come out of the hospital at a family gathering, a engagement party with both families of my brother and sister-in-law. He tickled me, he fed me grapes made me feel, confused. He confused me.
I held that into myself from my family and friends until I was thirty some. Most of my family believed me and accepted me except the man’s side of our family, my brother. It hurt me to share it. I was treated like I did an evil thing.
When I was in my forty’s I struggle for the last time with being in the body. I had tried prayer, religion, spirituality, and more religion, you get the picture. Then I decided to transition to have Gender Reassignment Surgery to bring my body to meet my mind and soul of a woman. In January 2009 my body match with my mind and soul. I am now a female.
Weird, that some members of my family decided to agree with my brother and say I was the liar.
I was not always honesty or truthful, I hide my desire to be a woman, even made statements against it. Yet always finding the woman the female inside of me.
I have been very alone. Very little acceptance by my family or even attempts of getting to know the female I have become. My friends I could understand but my family, not all a few of my nephews have talked to me and keep in touch with me, a few hellos from some.
I would love to go to family events. Yet from a few contacts early in my transition to weddings, felt like my family was uncomfortable with me.
I just feel like a outcast the black evil,….
I live a moral life, in that I care about others. I am more of a humanist then a Christian, actually more of a agnostic or atheist if you want a title.
I am though Axcella the daughter of Peter and Ruth. I am related to my the sons and daughter of Peter and Ruth.
This is written as a result of watching the movie, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” check it out if you want.
This was what was on my mind.

Our next visit is to http://atomickaleidoscope.wordpress.com/

A succinct and eclectic Electronics Engineer by profession although I preferred to teach as a passion. In this journey called life all i can say is : C’EST LA VIE ! CHEERS!

Since these sites are so full of information to check out for you I will only visit one more today so that you do not spend the entire day lost in information.

SERENDIPITY

A friend told me she never knows what I’m going to write about, so it’s always a surprise. That makes at least two of us. Until my little lightbulb goes off, I don’t know what I’m going to say either. I have a lot of varied interests: history, photography, philosophy, religion, politics, ecology, technology. I’m a bit of a geek and I do enjoy my toys. Serendipity is appropriate, I guess. Grab bag would work too.

I try to be on the right side of issues. I do my best to align with the righteous on the side of justice, kindness, and giving everyone the benefit of a doubt. I don’t always live up to my own best self, but I try. You are welcome here and I ask only that you don’t insult anyone, not me or anyone who comments here. I reserve the right to delete or edit your comments. Sometimes I delete comments because they’re too long. Extended interchanges are better done in private email. I prefer not to have essays in comments. You are welcome to email me directly at fivedawgz@gmail.com. I find it awkward when a comment exceeds the length of the original post.

Did I mention that I love dogs? And photography? Words? I am perhaps excessively fond of cleverness and clever people. Plays on words make me giggle. My favorite piece of music is Beethoven’s 6th Symphony. Which doesn’t mean I don’t love country music, folk music, some very hard rock … I’m nothing if not eclectic.

As far as participating on this site, civility counts. Please be nice. We can be civil, even if we are not of the same mind.

This is not a public forum. For good or ill, democracy does not prevail here. If you want a fight, you can’t have it  here. I don’t want this site to be a battleground, nor do I want long disputes. There’s more than enough of that on social media sites. Therefore, on my site, when I say the conversation is over when I’ve had enough.

I write about everything and nothing. Sometimes I’m current, sometimes I wander off into stuff that I find interesting and maybe you won’t. That’s the joy of writing without a boss looking over my shoulder. After a lifetime of writing for a living, I treasure the freedom to say whatever I want.

I offer you some memories, many thoughts, stories, and pictures. The photographs are mine unless obviously otherwise or credited to someone else. If it’s a picture of me, it’s a good bet I didn’t take it. I also reblog postings that I think you will find interesting … or that I find interesting or funny or in some other way special.

Welcome, whoever you are, wherever you are.

So double check what you about page says because you never know, I may be stopping at your site tomorrow…

This has been a fun road trip and I can’t wait to see what day 7 brings.

Daily Prompt: Pressing On to Share The Love


pad2013 (1)

Daily Prompt: Press It

Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved in the past week, and tell us why they’re worth reading.

The very first one that comes to mind is a post by a regular that I read and it was really a great Poem that she wrote.

http://theseeker57.wordpress.com/2013/04/10/on-children-april-2013-monthly-peace/

The poem was very touching, well written and the message was one that was well worth a reblog.

The next one that comes to mind is a mom who shows her love of children through her blog…every step of the way.  She also shows her love of crafts on the blog.  Her latest blog was on her second child’s first hair cut.  http://momoftwosalums.com/2013/04/10/my-baby-boy-had-his-first-haircut/
 Through her writings, you can tell her overflowing love of her family.

The next must read is going to two bloggers actually because when I am hungry, I always go to these two sites to see what they or their guest bloggers are cooking for the day.  They never disappoint me and always have something great to offer:

http://rantingchef.com/author/rantingchef/  When he is not giving you a great recipe he is giving you a diced competition of four great blogging chefs who are competing with a recipe.

http://maggiesonebuttkitchen.com This gal is all about cooking and blogs or has guest blogs daily about food.

So that is my recommendations for the day…I have many more on my wall if you check that I actually recommend daily as I read them.

Now I am off to my A-Z challenge…I am on the Letter J so I am still going strong.

Sewing Project with help


I have been trying so hard to work on a sewing project and have found that I have extra help these days with the project. CIMG2639 CIMG2640 CIMG2641 CIMG2642 CIMG2643 CIMG2644 CIMG2645 CIMG2646 CIMG2647 CIMG2648 CIMG2649

The bed here has been moved three times and is about four feet from where it normally sits.  It is almost out the door and is actually against my chair but I had to move the chair to take the picture.  She got up right after the picture and moved the bed closer yet.

As far as working on this project I have made TC get down ten times.  The person I am doing this for is allergic to cats.  It is as if he knows that.  Ugh.

Thank goodness he hates the sound of the sewing machine and finds somewhere else to sleep.
