sharing the warmth
around the winter bonfire
just you and me

New Word.


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Play Lexicographer.”

My word is...LOVACATION.

Origin….English, noun.

Meaning….a vacation taken with your loved one with the sole purpose of rekindling the romance.

Would love to have more of Lovacations.

My Joie De Vivre.


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Final Trio.”

For our final trio prompt of the year, write about any topic you wish, but make sure your post features a bookcase, something cracked, and a song you love.

Warm sunlight streamed through the window,

Lighting up my bookcase,

I looked on as my books came to life,

A smile came across my face.

I looked back as something cracked,

It was the sound of steps on my wooden floor,

And there he was in all his glory,

Heathcliff had just entered from the door.

As my favorite  love song played in the background,

I felt like Cathy from Wuthering Heights,

It was a dream come true for me,

It was the ultimate delight.

It was a moment suspended in time,

All my fantasies had come true,

It was love all around,

Life had changed, out of the blue.

Then, I was woken from my sleep,

By my husband of 26 years,

He is no Heathcliff,

But he is my joie de vivre.
