Hello, everyone. I am playing catchup from my fantastic vacation spent with family but am glad to be back. There is nothing like some time off to recharge your writing batteries. I stayed off social media for four whole days! Wow!

Although, my granddaughter, Arianna, and our daughter’s boyfriend, Pat taught me how to use Snapchat!

Ronda & Pat

We celebrated Maleah’s 16th birthday

Blowing out the candles

Nana & Papa gave Maleah her sweet sixteen present – an opal ring!

Arianna helped me take care of the dogs

We watched movies and played the Wii

We barbecued on Ron’s new grill and had a great time. There is nothing better than time spent with family. Our time together always ends too quickly.

Thanks for stopping by and meeting the family!

      1. Colleen, I just got your book. Thank you so much. It will have pride of place on our bookshelf (next to mine 😀) Who’d have believed that we’d both be published author’s and have books side by side. I look forward to reading it.
        Thanks so much

  1. I know about doctor appointments. I picked up my new glasses this morning. I can see the computer screen much better. I had two check-up appointments last week, one this week and another next week. I’ll check on your Haiku challenge. ❤

  2. I wrote one of your challenge Haiku not long ago but couldn’t remember how to link it with your site. I will write one and add my URL address to it. Will that work? I used that for Writing 101 once upon a time. Thanks for encouraging me.
