September 2 Remember—Part III

Two years ago, September 2016 was a difficult month for me. A string of disappointments, which I’ve alluded to, had already begun. This particular week was difficult because there was a mosquito in our house, and it kept biting me. In a week’s time, I’d gotten bit 15 times, then a couple days went by, and I got another bite or two. I think I totaled at 17 before I finally found the mosquito and killed it. What was going on? I was being tested again, and I didn’t like it. #tempertemper #refinersfire #September2Remember Click to Tweet

September 2 Remember – Part I

Does it seem like time flies by? Well, it does me. The older I get, the faster it goes, too. I’d heard that when I was younger—especially when time seemed to be slow, and nothing was happening. Now that I’m “older,” it really does go by quick. Take the time to enjoy your life and remember what’s important. #September2Remember #donnalhsmith #timeflies Click to Tweet

The Romance Plot—Part IV

There are numerous romance plot types, but we’ll only look at a few of them—my “favorite” types. What they all have in common is the guy and the girl. The man and the woman. These two will end up together. It’s the details of how, why, when, where, and what happens to them to get them together. That’s the fun! @donnalhsmith @a3writers #TheRomancePlot Click to Tweet

The Augustness of August—Part IV

It’s definitely summertime here. There’s a heat advisory for today (Tuesday), and I’m going to be hibernating inside in my comfy air conditioning. That’s August here in Pennsylvania. It can be cool one day and really hot the next. What’s your favorite summertime memory from the past? We’re going to look at that, today, as we read the lyrics of Nat King Cole’s song, “In the Good Old Summertime.” @donnalhsmith @a3writers #IntheGoodOldSummertime #AugustnessofAugust

The Augustness of August—Part III

Where I live in Pennsylvania, the weather in late August begins to cool and I spend time out on my back porch. It’s a large screened-in porch with both an eating and sitting area. I love those days when I can spend the whole day out there. There’s such peace. This photo was taken four years ago. The aftermath of a birthday party. Unlike the Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer. @donnalhsmith #AugustnessofAugust #NatKingCole #LazyHazyCrazyDaysofSummer

The Augustness of August—Part II

I just can’t help myself! A sweet little romantic song from my “era” of the 60s-70s was “Summer Song” by Chad and Jeremy. When I thought of different songs having to do with summer, of course this one crossed my mind. I’ll have Nat King Cole next week. #AugustnessofAugust #donnalhsmith
