I still have issues with WordPress blog, it looks like I’m an awful slow learner. For now visit my other blog ‘this and that…’
I promise, cross my heart, that eventually this blog will come to life.
So long my friends,
“If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. If that person doesn’t walk away, you will surely endure many years of suffering with him or her. Walking away may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal. Then you can choose what you really want. You will find that you don’t need to trust others as much as you need to trust yourself to make the right choices.” —Miguel Ruiz
So long friends,
For the first time in a quarter of a century I forgot to buy myself a gift… I can’t believe it! You see I have a little tradition going – since me and my ex split up I’m buying myself a gift on his birthday. It really cheers me up and reminds me of an excellent decision I have once made (I’m the one who said ‘good bye Charlie’). I was celebrating that faithfully for twenty four years and yesterday somehow I missed it.
So long my friends,
I think I already said a little abut myself in my first post so, I guess, I’m a little less behind with my assignments. Yep, the course has already started and the first lesson was to publish a post and say “who I am and why I’m here”. Done that, so quickly next.
Bits and pieces is born. I’m very new to WordPress, I guess it will take me a while to learn how to beautify this blog. I have another one on the blogspot dedicated to my hobbies (evalinamaria.blogspot.ca) and this blog will be dedicated to my writing. Yeah, can you believe that I do want to write and write good? I’m creating this little corner so I can start my Blogging 101 course.
I just noticed that this WordPress has a word count. I love it! A while ago I was reading Stephen King ‘On writing’ and he said that anyone who would like to improve their writing skills must write about two thousand words a day. I think that’s a lot of words but my goal for 2015 is to do just that – take King’s advice and write as much as I can with a minimum of 2000 words per day. O boy, that will be a lot of writing…
Since this is my first post – let me introduce myself. My name is Evalina Maria, I’m quite mature person who loves good writing, cross stitching while listening to audiobooks, reading and watching a good movie once in a while. I have a dog name Frosty Girl and I love her dearly. She is kuvasz (Hungarian sheep dog) and she is almost two years old. She is a very good girl but a slow learner or maybe her learning progress is limited by my inability to communicate with her… well one of us needs a good trainer. Just recently I have discover ‘Pet Corrector’ and, cross my heart, that is the best training tool I ever had. It is a small can that makes a hissing sound. Frosty Girl likes to bark while inside the house and I wasn’t able to stop her until now, just one little hiss and she stops immediately. I would love to show you my Frosty Girl and the ‘Pet Corrector’ but first I must learn how to insert the picture into the post… I’m telling ya, I have a lot to learn!
And look at that, I just discover how to add pics! So, here is my Frosty Girl:
and that’s the ‘Pet corrector’:
If you have a dog that barks a lot, get it! You’ll love it.
