How about you?

What comes to YOUR mind?

I say ... and you think ... ?

  1. In love :: with life & living each moment
  2. Be my guest :: and 'mutter' along with us today ;--)
  3. Number one :: writing rule from Natalie Goldberg is "Keep the pencil moving."
  4. Swallowed whole :: hook, line, and sinker ... (I guess it's all those years I was married to a Bass fisherman) ... I'm hoping that all Americans are THINKING FOR THEMSELVES and voting out of 'intention' rather than 'fear' in this election.
  5. 50 percent :: half
  6. Made in :: the shade ... (an expression used by my brother throughout his life that still makes me smile)
  7. Supplement :: Vitamins
  8. Right for :: the benefit of all, rather than greed of the few
  9. Endless :: optimism and determination
  10. Ceramic :: pottery made of clay

Even though I'm still hoping for more than light drizzles here at the beach, apparently some areas in Southern California did get rain yesterday and those in recently burned areas experienced mudslides. We do have another storm offshore so it's possible we'll see some rain showers Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning, but I certainly don't wish more problems on anyone ... so if I have to water my yard by hand, so be it. In addition, I don't want the weather to keep anyone from voting.

I'm participating in NaBloPoMo again this November and this is Day Two. It seems that both of my blogs are listed on the Blogroll there (probably because I participated on both last year), so I'm thinking of just letting that be ... hoping I can keep up with posting on two blogs for 30 days like I did a year ago when all this was new and I didn't really have a clue what I was doing.

If you haven't yet done so ...
be sure to get ready to Vote on Tuesday!

Good Morning, Storyteller,

5. 50 percent :: half

Hootin' Anni said...

Oh yes.....now I remember that one..."Made in the shade drinking Kool Aid". Boy howdy, does that age me, or what?

Love the sky photo!!!

Patsy said...

And we shall mutter and blog for 30 days and share. I thought your choice on Swallowed whole was interesting. I've heard that expression all my live, but it didn't come to mind until I read it here. The same with Made in the shade. I know there are no right or wrong answers, but yours seem better. :)

"Made in the shade" I haven't heard THAT in quite a while. It made me smile too.

Great mutterings (as always), enjoy your Sunday!

Unknown said...

Hey we matched a few. :)

1. In love :: truly, madly, deeply
2. Be my guest :: go ahead
3. Number one :: Champion
4. Swallowed whole :: choked
5. 50 percent :: half
6. Made in :: cookies
7. Supplement :: vitamins
8. Right for :: me
9. Endless :: love
10. Ceramic :: pottery

Love your sky, as always!

Martha said...

I had some of the same answers as you did on today's mutterings! :-)

Unknown said...

I lobe your nr 8 of the mutterings.

You can find my mutterings ::here::.

Have a wonderful week!

Ivanhoe said...

I'll be voting on Tuesday before work. Hope not to stand in a line for half a day ;o)

Martha said...

I decided to play along on NaBloPoMo too :-)

Anonymous said...

I love your mutterings! And I must say that I love this blog of yours. I will be here for a few more minutes to look around :)

Happy Sunday!

Thanks to all of you for dropping by and sharing your thoughts. NaBloPoMo seems to be going fine as of today (November 12th) and I’ve managed to post on each blog w/o much trouble. I have learned to plan ahead and create posts early rather than at the last minute. Methinks that’s both good and bad, but at the moment it works.

Kitten, Joyce, and Lisa – Thanks especially for playing along and sharing your ‘mutterings here in comments’ … I always enjoy seeing what the words prompt from others. It seems we had a few answers in common and some variances too.

Patsy, Dave, VH, Laane, Martha, and Hootin’ Anni – I enjoyed reading your ‘mutterings’ on your blogs and believe I left comments on each already.

Mama Zen, Akelamalu, Ivanhoe – You know that I always enjoy your visits and do my utmost to drop by your blogs whenever possible … albeit occasionally late as time permits … (just like I’m leaving this comment belatedly)

I hope you're all having a wonderful Wednesday!
Hugs and blessings,
