Okay, we are all in a lockdown because of COVID-19. That’s all I am saying about that!

On the short road trip I just took, I visited a few interesting places.
1. Whirligig Park https://www.wilsonwhirligigpark.org/the-story/visiting-the-park/
2. UFO Welcome Center https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/ufo-welcome-center
3. Bonaventure Cemetery https://www.bonaventurehistorical.org/
4. St. Augustine Lighthouse https://www.staugustinelighthouse.org/
5. Eastern State Penitentiary https://www.easternstate.org/
The park and the cemetery were open, but the other three were closed due to the pandemic.

I learned how to draw a pretty good human nose.

I realized that Baked Lays Potato Chips taste very much like Pringles.

Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee from the refrigerator section of the supermarket is sweetened but doesn’t have cream in it. To help with this, I suggest, based on my current experience, Nesquik Chocolate Milk mixed in. https://www.nesquik.com/en/products/ready-to-drink/nesquikr-low-fat-chocolate-milk?gclid=Cj0KCQjwjcfzBRCHARIsAO-1_Oo_12Aozjl7Zg2WI9h6V_l3vNnGojcaNlQWTAR067M_lIX4S4xBCH0aAsI7EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Okay, enough of me….Stay healthy, stay home, stay positive! Peace to you all, no matter where you live!

Wow! I was on a writing spree today! I love the challenges and writing prompts. I love writing for them and I love reading all of the creative output that is posted daily. Blogging has brought me so much joy!

I am thinking about writing some non-fiction for children. Not sure what age yet. I think there are a lot of topics that can be highlighted and written about. For example, homelessness. Unfortunately, the children who have experienced homelessness know what it is. Some of the other children may have heard of it. Some children don’t know what it means and some will never have to worry. I have worked with children who go home to not one single food item in their homes. I have worked with children who cannot bath because the cold water is just too cold for bathing in the winter. Electricity is not given away for free. Oil only keeps some of us warm. I am so thankful for my life and despite the losses I have dealt with, I have to say my life is pretty good. Would they be better if I still had my husband of 22 years or my 19 year old son, YES! But, God has chosen this for me for a reason. I just wish I knew what it was! Lol!

I’m watching the Democratic Debate. No, I am not going into politics in my blog. My one observation is that these people are just fighting with each other like little children. Don’t they know how silly it sounds? Hopefully all of the impressionable children are in bed.

I was reading a lot today and I was reading about Tibet. The one thing I want in life, besides a peaceful life for my daughter and others I love, is to travel. I don’t need the Hilton resorts or first-class airline tickets. I just want to see other countries and their beauty. I see pictures from countries in Europe and Asia, many islands, and other faraway places and I could cry out with my desire to see these places.

Peace to you all! Thank you for reading. I am in my happy place here and that means a lot to me.

I get tempted to share my entire life when I get on here! Hahaha, not that anyone would be that interested and my life isn’t that terribly interesting. Anyhow, my writing mind takes over and I just type and type.

Last week I went to Epcot Center. I think I posted some pictures. I love the countries in the World Showcase. I used to work in the shops right at the beginning of the World Showcase. There is quite a bit to do there, but mostly eating and spending money.

Florida was terribly cold last week, as the northeast is now. Snow may be coming on Saturday. I cannot tolerate the cold anymore. I just feel miserable when I am cold.

I have been finding many new challenges here on WordPress. I enjoy the different challenges and reading others’ works. I enjoy the creativity that spreads through the blogs. Once a while ago I was told not to bother blogging because no one really cared to read what I have to say, that I’m not that important or something like that. I thank all of my followers for helping me fulfill this dream of mine!

Peace to you all! Don’t watch the news, it’s the regular Trump news. Look out your window instead!
