I Like To Blog, and Here Is Why…

Why do we blog? I read a friend’s blog this morning and she was answering the same questions. And I’m going to agree with her. She, like myself, is a writer. We blog because we #1) enjoy writing, #2) believe that we have something that is interesting to say and #3) we have a place to do it!

I like to blog as a way to express myself. On this blog site, I concentrate on ‘whas’s up.’ Now that schools back, yeah** hoorah$% I’m eager to return to organized days where there’s a chance for structure. (I’m pretending that everyone is happy) And we are enjoying our friends being there with us again. 2020 blahhh. Although we still need to strongly watch our back… or should I say face. (Stay diligent and concerned with the Covid-19 strain returning and this new Delta spreading.) I really don’t want to be separated and quarantined again. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my own company, but even I get to be like old fish. I need fresh air and friends after three days.

It’s September! The hot days are slowly easing away. Can I get a ‘hey yeah’… I like this time of year because the trees turn colors, the air smells crispy and there is a brisk chill. Sweater weather, that’s what it’s called. Also have you noticed how the months zip by. 30 days in September and 30 days in November, right? Then there’s three major holidays in a row. Oops, four, I forgot about New Years. That’s next year, though. I’m not ready for that. Give me a minute. I’m still talking about Fall 🙂

Footballs back out on the field, shows are on tv again and so far the world is where it should be. Of course this is America and things around this place change fast and not always good. But, we pray at night, we wake up with a smile and we look forward… always look forward and we’ll enjoy our tomorrows. Yep, that’s why I blog, to just say isn’t this next season a fun one, with crisp leaves beneath our feet, fireplaces burning to provide more heat, (except here in Utah, they are not allowed due to our air quality) and costumes, pumpkins and trick or treat. I’ll be back before then. But have a nice and fine time writing about whas’up as you like.

No Fireplace is Needed

Mobley,

No Fireplace is Needed: is a story that came from a question my darling daughter asked me when she was six years old.

“Mommy, we don’t got a fireplace. So, how will Santa be able to leave my good girl toys under the Christmas tree?”

I too, had to wonder about that one. I looked around our house and worried that it would certainly be hard for jolly ‘ole Santa to leave his wrapped packages beneath our Christmas Tree. 

You see, I dare not leave a key beneath the mat outside our front door. Honestly, I couldn’t think that Santa had the time to get out of the sleigh, find the key, open the door, step inside, then close and lock the door behind him. Especially since  we didn’t live in a very good neighborhood.

So, after a long period of time, I thought about the special magic that Santa brings with him. 

Here is a special Jolly ‘ole Man, who travels the world in one night and delivers special gifts to every good little girl and boy, how could one little problem like a house without a fireplace stop him? Well, it just couldn’t.

In “No Fireplace Is Needed,” Santa finds a special way to deliver gifts into even my little home.
