Invitation To Treat…

Be mindful!
As that invitation to treat,
just might be;

Invitation – The Daily Post


Participate in Writers’ Quote Challenge

Jacqueline and I invite you to join in on our blogging event called The Writer’s Quote Challenge. We have decided to pick up the baton that Colleen and Ronovan have handed off.

So for our inaugural week here is the prompt:

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” Seneca 

We are continuing the same format and here that is: there are no rules to follow. Either make up your own sayings  or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.

Each Thursday, we will post the prompt and all you have to do is participate!

On your own blog post do a ping-back to this post and make sure to “like” or “comment” on everyone else’s post. A ping-back is when you embed (or copy) the URL of my weekly prompt into your own blog post.

Make sure to check our weekly prompt to see if your entry is there. You can copy URL of your blog post and include it in the comments section of my original weekly prompt if that works better for you.

Copy the badge above and include it on your own post. Tag your post on your own blog as “The Writer’s Quote Challenge,” so we can find the posts in the reader.

Jacqueline and I are looking for more hosts to join in the fun.  So if you would like to pick up the challenge of hosting, just let one of us know.

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.

I absolutely love this book of poems. My favorites are “Love Rations” (for those who love to give the silent treatment) and “Beggars Supper” (which definitely pulls at the heart strings). Two thumbs up!!

Out of the silent breath

If you enjoy my works and would like to do so, you can fuel my creativity with a slice of cake or coffee😉



I would like to invite you to my blog party which is going on right now. It goes on through the weekend. It’s a great opportunity to mingle with other awesome bloggers like you. I hope to see you. The party link is titled Summery blog party live link. Regards, Jacqueline

Life · Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

Express on WordPress…Streams of consciousness Saturday.

Pressure cooker on the gas. I’m cooking up a storm this weekend. Both in my house and on my blog.

I’m doing my month end large pots of sauces and our traditional soups. It saves my life by several inches to do so.

There are days that get hectic that those earlier prepared and saved bowls of stew and soup saves this lady from expiring.

I’m also stirring some broth in my cooking pot of a blog right now. A lovely Summery blog mingle is bubbling as I write and you are hereby invited to join the mix.

What a lovely thing and way to express ourselves on WordPress. I’ve met lovely people from different locations, Malaysia, London, NY, South US, Nigeria….and the list keeps growing.

Isn’t that impressive that we have this opportunity? I don’t know what your opinions are but for me, it’s fabulous. Let’s keep the wonderful expressions flowing. You rock WordPress 🙂


P.S. You can join our Summer blog party taking place right now. It’s fun and you get to meet fantastic folks. Looking forward to seeing you.

Let’s Kick Up Some Dust at a Brunch Party…


It’s been cold

And musty too

A little tiresome

But Spring’s about here

There’s a Deejay in the house

Lot’s of food to feed the crowd

Intelligent folks all around

Let’s stomp a bit of the ground

Happening live Tomorrow Saturday to Sunday

A Brunch hop to Spring

Please do come around

You are free to laugh loud

And crack silly jokes

You can bring someone with you

The more the merrier.

Let’s Get Together For Brunch…You Are Invited.


Oh this is fun

And I want a bun

It’s time for lunch

Or better still let’s have a brunch

A kettle of Cardamon tea

And a slice of vanilla cake

A sip of rich coffee

And that bite of apple pie

There might be a carafe of table wine

With lots of grapes so divine

I think I spy some Easter bunnies

Please do hand me the honey

A medley of this and that

It will be a lively chat.


This is an invitation to a Pre-EASTER Brunch, taking place this weekend in this abode from Saturday 19th to Sunday 20th.

Come let’s dance into Spring with a spring in our steps.

Do keep a date and you’ll be glad you came.

I set a day reminder at the top corner of the right bar.

It will be good to have you here.

”Share as much as you can. The more we are together, the merrier we shall be.”

A Slice Of Cake and A Brunch….


The outpour of gracious birthday wishes from all of you has been far beyond my expectations.

I truly appreciate your gesture. The gift of even a moment of your time and kind thoughts are invaluable.

I will get round to responding to all the lovely comments that were sent my way. It’s unlike me to delay in responding, but it’s been a hectic weekend with my young son under the weather, dashing in and out of the hospital and trying to have a little birthday time as well.

Well on a sweet note, I saved a slice of cake for you, so do have one slice of virtual cake on my behalf 🙂

Secondly, I want to ask a quick question with regards to the posts links that I have been featuring daily.

I like to take stock and review my actions as much as possible and would like to know if it has been useful in any form?

Then finally to THE INVITATION, I will be hosting a PRE-EASTER BRUNCH this weekend and you are cordially invited to the Easter egg hunt, mingling, connecting and blog-hopping.

The last shindig held in this abode was popping hot and we all had a good time. I hope this will be equally as delightful, if not better 🙂

Do say ‘aye’ if you are keen on it and YOUR invaluable inputs are welcome on how we can make it beautiful together.

My kindest regards and thank you once again.
