Here Comes the Sun-

-And I say it’s all right.

March sunrise

This sunrise was a pleasant surprise one morning when I let the dog out. It was right after Daylight Saving Time so I was moving a little slow and did not expect to see the sun was rising as late as I was!

Have a great day!



Three Things Thursday- 3/29/18

It’s Thursday and three things made me smile this week! (You might be saying, “Only 3, Kat? How sad!” but have no fear- there was LOTS to smile about this week. These three have the honor of being recognized because they came to mind in a split second AND I happened to have pictures of them.

shaun cassidy albumI was reunited with my Shaun Cassidy albums! Who knew that one of my absolutely favorite teen heart throbs could still make my heart go pitter pat? But, just look at him! He’s SOOOOOOO cute!

converse all stars

I got new grey Converse All Stars! This is something I’ve always wanted but never had the nerve to purchase. It was an impulse buy- something I don’t normally do. I couldn’t wait to put them on and show them off!

smile rock

And how cool is this! Someone left a “smile” rock on the meter on the side of my house. Finding this definitely did make me smile! (And it inspired me, too!)

#ThreeThingsThursday- was created by Emily at Nerd in the Brain and hosted by Natalie at There She Goes. Three Things Thursday is a list of three things that made you happy this week.

A to Z Blogging Challenge

Blogging From A to Z Challenge 2018


Blogging From A to Z Challenge is right around the corner! If you aren’t familiar with the challenge, you can click on the link and find out all the details. The short version is that you “every” day in April with each day’s topic being related to a letter of the alphabet. It begins with A on April 1st and so on. If you haven’t tried this challenge, you really should  consider it! It’s one of my favorites.

This will be my fourth year participating and I can’t wait! Unlike NaNoWriMo, which I have spotty luck in completing, I have been success in posting 26 times in the month of April, successfully completing the entire alphabet. Some bloggers choose a theme for the entire month and others just freestyle. My first time doing it, I was convinced that a dedicated theme would be too difficult. Perhaps it’s just me, but let me tell you- boundaries are a GREAT thing- and in the last two years I chose a theme. I found it much easier and more enjoyable to stick with one train of thought. In past years my themes were songs and quotes.

This year I’m doing a photograph theme. Hopefully I’ll be able to find photos that I’ve taken that have something to do with every letter of the alphabet! Wish me luck!!
