A Wordy Waggy Now : #ROW80 R2/ #12WeekYear EOW9

Hi there, ROWers and friends! 

This week was sponsored by the letters W and C…

My main focuses this week were tending to tail-wagging canines and wrapping up a writing contest entry. I think the picture at the end of this post sums it all up nicely….

Is there a letter (or two) that represents your week?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

    1. It was so cute – the bed is right behind my desk, and that’s what I turned around to see. They were echoing each other!

      It was a lot more blue than I thought I was going to have….but the middle of the list is still being ignored a lot more than I want it to.

      Hoping I can take care of that this week, at least some.

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
