Time Together

On a cold dark day 
the one thing I desire 
is you  in my arms 
us in front of a fire  

With no one around 
to bother us here 
that intimate feel 
there is love in the air.

Blogging Insights

Dr. Tanya hosts this weekly: https://saltedcaramel670.wordpress.com/2020/12/21/blogging-insights-60-organising-your-blog/

TODAY’S QUESTIONS

How organised are you when it comes to blogging? Do you have a blog schedule or do you play it by the ear? I used to have a sort of schedule. My mornings are usually the same…wake up, let the dog out, feed the dog, feed the guinea pigs, make coffee, then sit and blog. Most recently I have been sitting down to make miniatures before blogging, which has left me a little out of the loop. I went to bed last night telling myself that I would blog before anything else today. It feels good. Almost like I am at work with my coworkers…My WP Coworkers!

How often do you’ tidy up’ your blog? e.g. go through your Drafts Folder, or go through old posts checking for broken links etc.? I don’t really go through my drafts folder and all that because most of my blog posts either get posted or go directly to trash. Right now, I do have some items to sort through, but the only reason to do it now is because it has been brought up. Every other week maybe I go through and try to put posts under the correct headings in my menu. I figure that way if I want to find something I just click on the category, and voila! Other than that I try to keep things neat all the time. I can say that I finally found a “theme” that I actually like. Not sure how long that will last. Usually six months and I am ready for something new. I have wanted to ask people..Is there an easier way than going into “customize”, etc. to move posts under their related categories? I do put the tags and all that, but I have to manually move them if I want them to pop up when I click on the menu.

5 Things

Go here to participate: https://saltedcaramel670.wordpress.com/2020/12/22/5-things-you-miss-about-driving-to-work/

5 Things that you miss about your daily drive / commute to work.

  1. music – I listen to music sometimes when I am home, definitely in the car, but I don’t drive everyday so I do miss it.
  2. familiarity – I always liked “knowing” what to expect along my drive. That being said…
  3. new sights – I found it fun to see the new things people did to their homes or yards.
  4. quiet – sometimes I would be driving for so long before realizing that I hadn’t turned the music on. This was more common in the afternoons when I just needed to decompress.
  5. finding new routes – every so often I would turn down some random street to see if it got me to where I needed to go. Again, this was an after-work thing.

Jubilant: Your Daily Word Prompt

December CHF 2020
https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/

Join in at Your Daily Word Prompt: https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/

The Way I Feel

The way you look at me each day 
sends shivers up my spine 
I love your eyes and sexy voice 
The way your hand holds mine 

The joy you bring to me each day 
makes my heart just skip a beat 
You make me quiver in my shoes 
and knock me off my feet. 

Seeing you with me each day 
makes me jubilant and fine 
I’m glad that you have me to love 
and that I have made you mine.
