Haiku Friday – Wrapped Up In An Adventure!

27 May

Hello everyone! Due to my current situation (lost in wonderland and stuck in the web of vacation) there will be no ‘Haiku Friday’ today. Don’t worry about me though, I’ll find my way home soon enough. I’ll be back next week full force! In the meantime, thank you for stopping by and enjoy the weekend!

All Heaven and Earth

Flowered white obliterate . . .

Snow . . . unceasing snow




I hope you enjoyed today’s haiku. For those of you living in places where it is snowing––keep warm and safe. Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday! Thank you for joining us for another fun weekend of making friends and finding new blogs! Please welcome my hosts:

Say hello to my December team:
Kim from This Ole Mom
Melissa from Deliciously Savvy
Miranda from Myra Bev’s Corner
Let’s SHOW OFF some of those awesome posts from last week!

Natasha’s favorite from last week comes from Jenny’s Evolution:

“I’ve been looking for some ways to make this Christmas special for my son. Christmas cookies and desserts are at the center of making it great. I’ve been following Jenny’s Christmas Cookies series, and I have not been disappointed yet! Great post!”

Stacey gives New Mama Diaries a thumbs up: “These last few months, I seem to have taken on more and more, which has led to me feeling overwhelmed with the day to day. This reminded me that I need to find a way to slow down and stop trying to do so much.”

Meg loved this DIY from Taylor-Made Ranch:  ” have been wanting to make my own laundry detergent for months and just haven’t jumped in and done it yet! This DIY laundry detergent post from the Taylor-Made Ranch Homestead Blog has re-inspired me to give it a try. It’s too simple not to!”

Melissa was excited to see this post from Put a Bird In It:  “This grabbed me because my hubby is always a lover of a good cup of hot cocoa as well as his entire family! I am going to do this concept at his family’s Christmas Eve Party… everyone will love it!!! Awesome post and creative idea having a Hot Cocoa Bar!!! Thanks You!!!”

Miranda thought that this post was awesome coming from Lady Blogger:  “I love Yoga but I found it so hard when I initially started to make matters worse we had an 80 year old wonderful lady who used to do the splits like there was not tomorrow, she made it look so easy I was very encouraged to continue. Such a lovely Post.”

My favorite goes to Taylor-Made Ranch.  I am very big on supporting non-profit organizations.  Part of my job resposibility at work is to work with non-profits within the community and I see what happens and who they benefit.  Tammy’s post was a wonderful way to help non-profits not just for the holidays but throughout the year through your donated goods thst you do not need anymore.  Thanks Tammy!
