Monday Miscellany

Appreciation is wonderful. Kelly Hathaway, a very fine writer ( DASH, published this year.) just gave me an award, and I'm so proud.  Now I'm passing it on to some bloggers I APPRECIATE.  I hope they'll continue the appreciation by:

*thanking the giver and linking back to the blogger who gave it to them.
*revealing their top 5 picks and letting them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
*copying and pasting the award on their blog.
*having faith that their followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
* . . . And most of all - having bloggity-blog fun.

Here are my bloggers.

I have so many more that I want to give this to. Next time!

Miscellany involves, well, miscellany, so here it is.

I took a few days away to 1) reconnect with my family & friends who are often neglected during writing bouts. Here we are at the Concourse in Pebble Beach. Not buying--just looking.

2) soak up the sun and sometimes the fog that sneaks in along the coast of northern CA in the summer.

 3) HIKE! That's just about the best thing on this earth to do as far as I'm concerned. You see things that you can't see any other way.

What suggestions do you have for those times when you've finished a project that's isolated you for a time and you want to recharge and reconnect?  See you on Thursday when I post again! This time it will be to join the Sparkfest.


  1. Well, thank you for the appreciation, Lee! Getting in the dirt and gardening--even if just pulling weeds--recharges my spirit. Lovely photos! That view of the ocean is amazing.

  2. Congrats on the award!
    And beautiful photos. Love the nature pics and the one of that sweet lookin' car!! Nice!

  3. LOVE the photos, Lee. Thank you for sharing those. Have a lovely week! --Daisy

  4. Lovely pictures! I love to hike as well. There's nothing quite like it.

  5. Thank you SO much for sharing this award with me! Yo are an absolute sweetheart.

    I love the northern California coastline. Rugged, rocky, gorgeous.

  6. Yeah for the award!

    Fixing a special meal works well for getting back into the swing.

    My husband would LOVE to go to the Concourse.

  7. Congratulations on the award!

    Love the pictures.

    I think what helps me recharge the most is to get outside and take a walk. That and attending our local writing group. I always feel inspired and refreshed after hearing so many different writing voices.

  8. Yay, you! And thank you! I love the photos, too!

  9. It's so beautiful out there. I love that you can see the ocean. I know it's only like an hour to the ocean from where I am, but sometimes it's hard to get out there! Congrats on the blog award.

  10. Congrats on the award, Lee. What beautiful photos. Looks like you went on an awesome hike. I like to get together with friends and family and catch up and laugh and relax.


Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
