    Lying to Myself

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What’s a lie you tell yourself? I don’t tend to lie to myself about things. I’m pretty realistic most of the time. And even when I do try to lie to myself, I know it’s a lie. I know what the reality actually is. But I suppose if I must answer…

    Jumping Into The Dream

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What was your dream job as a child? I didn’t think much about adulthood as a kid. I spent a lot of time reading, absorbing, and learning, but I didn’t wonder how any of that would translate into a method of making money in the future. I was content with just…

    My Dream Home

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What irritates you about the home you live in? I love everything about my home. There is absolutely nothing that irritates me about it.

    My True Colors

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What color describes your personality and why? My first reaction to this prompt was to write about my favorite colors, but that wouldn’t necessarily answer the question. Maybe one of my fave colors describes my personality but maybe not. I decided to take an online color personality test. Of course, I’m…

    Eggplant Pirogue Deliciousness

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What’s your favorite meal to cook and/or eat? I don’t have a favorite meal I like to cook. I do have two recipes here on my site for dishes that Gail likes me to make. But I’d rather share one of my favorite meals to eat rather than cook. I say…

    Best Day Ever

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: Describe the happiest day of your life. October. Just a few months after Obergefell v. Hodges, requiring states to license and recognize same-sex marriage, I married the woman of my dreams.

  • Oh That Smell

    Oh That Smell

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: Do you have a memory that’s linked to a smell? I could probably think of many smells that evoke memories, some good, some bad. (Bad = Bourbon St. on any given night). But the one good smell that brings back great memories would have to be the smell of a mess…

    Even In the Friendliest of Faces

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What fear have you conquered? I drive around the parking lot several times. There’s a spot available not too far out, but it’s in the shadows, so I continue circling until someone under a street lamp leaves. I pull into the spot, gather my things, place my car keys between my…
