Are you ready?! In just two short days, it will officially be AUTUMN! Yess! How excited are you? Around here, even with the 90 degree heat we’re still feeling, we’re excited!

Dot has introduced me to the joy, nay, the necessity of the Starbucks’ Pumpkin Creme Frappuccino. A nice cool drink for times such as these. As you can see, she’s also introduced me to the joys of Instagram and Pixlr-o-Matic. (I’ll link those related posts in the Blog Hop portion of this post!)

I’m looking forward to the upcoming week. It’s PREMIERE WEEK! There are a few new shows I want to take a peek at. But mostly we’re extremely excited for the season premiere of NCIS. Now that it doesn’t compete for my attentions with FLASHPOINT, I’m back on the Gibbs Bandwagon. Oh, and a very special shout-out to ION Television for finally announcing Flashpoint Season 5 on their schedule. So we’re a month behind Canada, at least we get to see it!

I’ll be linking up last week’s Stalker post here and with Shell’s Things I Can’t Say. I’m still wracking my brain with how to raise enough funds to afford the airfare so I can accept the trip to Myrtle Beach that I won. I’ve seen some Bloggers put PayPal “Donate” buttons on their sites, but that’s just not my style. Besides, right now, Officer O’Rourke’s family needs donations more than Dot and I do!

Did I mention I have a day job now? I’m so very excited. I’m a Substitute Clerical for the local school district. I’ll be filling absences and vacancies as needed. I did this very same job five years ago and I loved it. I’m hoping to get some nice assignments. I was just hired, and I’ve yet to get to work, but at least I have an employer! And for that, I am very thankful.

With every passing day, I’m seeing that life is more and more of a teeter-totter/up-and-down, and my desire for stability, balance, and positivity relies mostly on me and me alone. I prefer being a colorful leaf swept along in the cool, crisp breeze… and decorating the world as I go along.

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!

And now it’s time for “What’s the Word?” Wednesday!

“What’s the Word?” Wednesdays is a link-up that allows other bloggers and readers to share whatever they want to talk about. Think of it as a virtual coffee date with some great friends. What’s going on in your world? Tell us all about it!

A few things to remember:

  • Each week’s link-up is valid from Wednesday through the following Tuesday. So if you link a post today, you can still come back and link another post tomorrow! In fact, you can link up as many posts as you want.
  • If you add a link, please put the badge on your post as well.
  • Each week has a new link-up. Please make sure you grab the correct Badge Code.
