Back from the dead.#Musing #Windows10 #Life

I was in my blog page randomly as I have a pinned tab to it in Chrome. Realized that my last post was about my SSD drive a year ago…

It actually failed another time and I switched brands to Corsair (I think), and it hasn’t failed since. Might be an incompatibility with PNY and my HP system. Possible. It’s been running like a champ since then. Still have minor issues with my second monitor randomly changing resolutions or the system not detecting it. I’m pretty sure that’s because it’s dying and I need to replace it. I’ll just keep using it until it dies completely.

It has been a long year. Understatement.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year. Lots of things have happened. I’ve been working a lot. All the time. I haven’t written much poetry recently. I have been reading. Went to Disney for the first time in 10 years last month. I want to go back. 🙂 I’m an annual passholder so I might do that for a weekend or something.

I’ll be going on a cruise in Feb. First one in more years that I want to think about (high school graduation). To Mexico this time. Never been so this should be fun.

Maybe I’ll go write something. A poem, a story, maybe a novel. Nah, too ambitious. 🙂 Although, #NaNoWriMo is coming up. Maybe. Definitely need to write more here.

Signing off. That pesky thing call work. 🙂

Poetry: Winter

Winter

Snow covers the ground,
Crystalline facets
Glow in the light.

Stars twinkle above my eyes,
Glowing incandescently
Fading with the night.

Winter is here:
It’s grip firm and bold
Only to fade to Spring’s might.

A breath of cold air
And Spring awaits,
Waiting for the right.

Soothing forces continue
Through the air,
Leaving Winter without a fight.

Grant us this day
And all the time ahead,
As I look forward toward the sight.

Found it. 🙂

Oopps! It’s been over a year… #Musings

I go onto my blog site and realized that I haven’t posted in over a year. Ooops!

I actually wrote more poetry but I’m not exactly sure where I put it. It was in the middle of the night.  I’ll have to find it and post. Probably #Evernote.  I love that program.

We are back in the house after the fire. See post here.

Round one of insurance completed, and 2nd and final round will be happening soon. I was laid off, searched for work, and found a new job since my last post. Most know if you follow me on Facebook or G+ as I regularly update there.  Well, more often than here obviously.

I was messing around with domains (I have a spare) and so I’ll probably point it to here for the time being: http://www.whaley-design.org.

Perhaps I will post more poetry and such.

The return of the iPad

Greetings everyone. I’m back with an iPad (b-day present so I can talk to parents with facetime) to help with writing, games, editing, reviews, social media, and all those things that had to be put on the back burner while I find a full-time job. Well, I found one. 🙂

It is an interesting transition but I’m enjoying it. I plan to stalk Goodreads.com (if you haven’t joined, you should as it is a one-stop shopping smorgasbord for your reading (and writing if you are so inclined) pleasure. Great way to get yourself advertised if you are self-publishing. Highly recommend it. If you need beta reading or editing, let me know. I read just about everything, including Romance, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal, Steampunk, YA, and other genres I don’t normally read… Mostly fiction though, although, I can probably be talked into non-fiction depending upon the topic. You can contact me on my contacts page.

More poetry will be posted as soon as I get my act together. I have years of stuff to wade through and that doesn’t include the stuff I create. Might even write short stories and/or novels. Still working on that.

Thanks to those that encourage me and I’m going to try post more often. If nothing else, I hope you are entertained.
