Haiku Reflections: Spring IS On the Way!

spring IS on the way haiku

We had a glorious, sunny day yesterday, here in Interior BC.

Joe and I took some time off from work/chores/to-do-lists and decided to take a LONG walk.

We ended up down at our lake shore, sitting in the sun, soaking up some rays and good energy. :-)

It felt so good to have sun on my face again and to see a really clear, blue sky, :) after too many weeks of dark cloudy days. :(

Spring really IS on the way here.

How about where you are? Any signs of spring? 

Have a wonderful week!  


An Amazon Screenshot that Made Me :-) and Free Promo!


Amazon ca print screen feb 21 15

This was the screenshot over at today, when I did a keyword search for “haiku” in the Kindle store!

Wowsa, I wasn’t expecting to have one of my haiku books: (Haiku Reflections I) in the top spot; what a nice surprise. :)

And there are 100 pages of books, for the keyword: haiku. 

I LOVE writing and reading haiku sooooo much. It’s such an honor to have people reading my work and buying my books/eBooks too.

I also have 2 free Kindle promos on this weekend, one for my midlife romance novel:

Third Chapter, Second Chance.

The other promo is for my cookbook:

The Groovy Green Kitchen I: Weeknight Veggie Slow Cooker.

Both are available all weekend for free, as Kindle downloads at:, .ca, UK,….etc.

Word of the Week: Wisdom

grey owl

When it comes to our animal pals, owls have always been thought of as a symbol of wisdom. :)

Here are a couple of reasons why owls are considered wise, from Yahoo answers:

-Back in the old days when people paid attention to such things, they noticed that owls stay quiet, keep their eyes open and strike quickly.

-Owls were sacred to Minerva, the Greek goddess of wisdom (among other things) so that her reputation rubbed off on them.

This gorgeous grey owl photo is one that I have on a note card I purchased a while back, from:

Tammie at Spirithelpers 

(click to see the card and visit her lovely Etsy photographic shop)

I am just enchanted by this photographI hope you enjoy it too.

We can learn a lot from birds and other animals, can’t we? 

Here’s to a week filled with wisdom and wonder! :)
