Sunday Scribblings just one day late

I can’t see her, but I can feel that she may be just paces away. I’m glad she picked this place. The trees here pull me in, sucking me deeper, while still feeling as if the edge is right behind me. Each trunk is a world within this one, ants carrying their bounty up and down the bark roadways, spiders catching their prey, birds capturing the juiciest spiders. I step forward through a break in the trees to sense where she might be hiding, the carpet of pine needles shift and break under my step. Just as I sensed she was here, I now know she has gone. The circle continues just like the ant, spider, and bird; our adventure of predator and prey carries on.

No Day But Today!

It is hard to know where to begin a blog, even harder if you have never kept one, like me. I read them and I really like them, especially because some of the really good ones make you feel like you are coming home to your best friend even though you are strangers. So, I suppose I will start with a popular blog tradition of pretty useless but fun questionnaires.

Four jobs I've held:

1) Bartender at a senior living facility
2) Hulk rollercoaster attendant at Islands of Adventure
3) Clerk at a mental health facility
4) Kennel attendant at an animal hospital- lots of poop scooping for this job.

Four movies I could watch over & over:
2) Dumbo, even though my heart breaks every time
3) The Princess Bride
4) Mary Poppins

Four places I've lived:
1) Apple Valley, California
2) Palm Harbor, Florida
3) St Petersburg, Florida
4) Orlando, Florida

Four TV shows I've watched:
1) Criminal Minds
2) Medium
3) Pushing Daisies
4) Ghost Whisperer

Four places I've vacationed:I don’t actually have anything to put in here, mostly because I have never vacationed for fun only to go see family. Sad!

Four of my favorite dishes:1) Chicken Caesar Salad- even though I can’t eat it anymore since I no longer eat meat. 2) Milk Chocolate Gelato
3) Creamy Peanut Butter with Seedless Blackberry Jam Sandwich
4) Pickles

Four Sites I visit daily:

Four places I'd rather be:
1) In a really amazing bookstore with comfy chairs with a giant coffee.
2) In a cottage in the middle of a forest that when I look outside the only thing I can see is trees.
3) Sleeping in my amazing bed but it has to be raining outside.
4) Sitting in a cold theatre somewhere watching an amazing show or being in the show, that might be more fun.

So, that I suppose concludes my first post and all I had to do is what people do best, talk about themselves. If you in turn would like to talk about yourself let me know I would love to read it.
