If you think that I’m strange
Then maybe so are you
If you think the sky’s grey
It’s still really blue.
If I think that you’re weird
Then come along with me
I have something to share
Something for you to see.
If this doesn’t make sense
then you are totally right
It’s like saying a real zebra
isn’t black and white.

Our words this week are:
– melt and freeze
– rest and work
For MLMM: https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2020/10/24/saturday-mix-opposing-forces-24-october-2020/
In the winter you freeze
in the spring you melt
these are the cards
we’re automatically dealt.
Before you rest
you must finish work
your boss’s a jerk.
These are life’s truths
believe it or not
Or at least what I think
and that’s what I thought.

Hello! It has been a busy week and it flew by. Yesterday, Friday, I didn’t get to any of the writing challenges that I usually do. I will probably go back and do them anyhow because they are fun. Like Fibbing Friday! https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/10/23/fibbing-friday-23rd-october/
So, I have a question I am hoping someone might be able to answer…
I published some children’s books through Page Publishing which is a vanity press. I decided not to renew my contract for my first book because 1. I don’t sell many and 2. I want to make revisions but to do so through them it is way too expensive. Now, what happens if one of my books sells on Amazon or somewhere else? I was getting royalties through Page but if I don’t have a contract anymore, now what? I guess I could ask them but I thought I might contact my WP world first.
I picked up my new cabinets today for my kitchen. I went to this Outlet store and the cabinets were only 1/3 of the price of Home Depot and they are better quality. Now to get them installed….I have a guy but I have work to do to get the kitchen ready for them.
I just finished reading the book Tea with Rasputin and posted my review. I was just so amazed with how it ended, I thought it was great. Just saying…
Peace to you all! I hope you are all staying healthy and safe…I read there have been a lot of earthquakes around our globe.
Pop in anytime for a hello!
