this coming Tuesday…

April 20, 2012

{This post is actually about this week’s Just Write, but it takes me a bit to get to the point. Please forgive. Heh.}

Hi friends. I was just thinking about how I randomly write about things and then other things and some small and beautiful things and other Big Things and then I change the subject and stop bringing up things and it’s probably because my brain is




so my blog is too!

Anyway. I want to do an update-ish sort of thing soonly because of that (like about Elsie and how she’s being assessed because of her gross motor skills being a bit lacking and about that whole post tubal ligation craziness and about upcoming good things…) But for now, I want to talk about this coming Tuesday because if you do Just Write with me (or would like to try) it’s going to get even better because you’ll get to share your link–your words–your stories in TWO places.

Here, as per usual, and over with my seriously awesome friends Jen and Sarah at Momalom for Five for Five.

(I’ll link to it on Tuesday and give more details that day, but it will be very easy.)

Listen closely, okay? Seriously, come closer…put your cute little (or big) nose up to the screen…

there are some really amazing writers in that community so if you love reading things that resonate and move you or make you laugh or think, you’ll really love Five for Five. I’m letting you know ahead of time because this is the only time that Just Write will have a bit of a prompt. But it’s just one word, so you can do what you’d like with that word.

And that word? Well, it’s quite fitting for Just Write because it’s WORDS. This means that if some people don’t get the memo about a prompt, they can still link up because you know, they will have written….WORDS.

You’re all welcome to join in. If you’re not a blogger, just play along at home. Free writing feels really good.

Happy weekend, friends.

OH P.S. We got chickens. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter of Facebook, you knew that because I’m sort of obsessed with taking pictures of them. I’m totally loving them…they make me feel peaceful. I had no idea chickens could do that, but really, what isn’t a miracle?

You got CHICKENS! How did I miss this? More evidence that I am trapped within. Oh my.

I love baby chicks like no other small critters. And then there are all those yummy eggs to look forward to.

This is the second post I’ve read today from completely different bloggers with pics of chickens. What is going on? I think I’m missing something.

You made me laugh out loud because I feel the same about my blog.
I blame the brain too, lol!
I love little chickens :)

You know, I wasn’t carried away with the chicks. But with your gentlemen. They just touch my heart for some reasons. :)

Love the photo! I want chickens!
I can’t remember how exactly I got here today but I’m glad I did. I’m excited about your “words” linky too. Yeay!

Sounds awesome!! I took yesterday and today {so far} off, but was planning on joining in tomorrow because I love your Just Write series. :)

The chickens are awesome! We just started on a whole foods, plant-based diet and are going to be only eating organic chicken, eggs, and beef from our farmer’s market. I watched Food Inc, Fresh, and Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and wished I had started this years ago.
