June 2019 Link Party With "A Chronic Voice"

I’m almost out of time for June’s Link Party with Sheryl at A Chronic Voice, so I better get on it! This month’s prompts are Repeating, Wondering, Turning, Getting, and Desiring. Thank you Sheryl for hosting these get togethers.

Wondering & Getting

According to dictionary.comwonder is a verb to think or speculate curiously; to be filled with admiration, amazement, or awe; marvel…”

I’ve been wondering if I can write a book. I’ve been wondering if healing from domestic abuse would be a topic that others would want to read about. The Writer’s Retreat that I attended last weekend helped me to realize that the answer to both those questions is yes.

After attending the craft sessions, and the small group writing workshops where we read each other’s writing, and offered critique to each other, I now feel more confident in my writing ability. I also got validation for the topic of my book.


Now that I’m home from my Writer’s Retreat, I’ve been in major resting mode. Resting after going to events or places is something that I need to build into my schedule over and over again. Without enough rest I’m asking for a fibro flare, asthma attack, or an infection. So rest it is.


This June I’m participating in this summer’s Index-Card-A Day Art Challenge given by Daisy Yellow Art. It runs form June 1st to July 31st. I’m returning to this challenge again this summer. I made it from June 1st to early July last summer. Each day you create any kind of art on an index card. I’ve been posting my cards on my upbeat_living_blog Instagram page. So far I’ve made a card for 25 days. I did have to catch up as I didn’t have time during the retreat to do art cards.


My greatest desire right now is for more energy. That’s really frustrating me, because my head is full of plans, and words, and I’m too pooped to pop.

  1. Wow, Kathy, what an exciting month you’ve had! I’m so glad you were able to do the writer’s retreat and realize that your gift is something you should share with the world. I enjoyed looking at your index card art. That’s such a great idea. Wishing you all the best with your writing and crafting projects!

  2. A lovely post again this month Kathy. All your crafting projects and classes sound wonderful! Always such a lovely hobby to distract from the symptoms from illness. I hope you manage to increase your energy levels soon!

  3. Hey Kathy, thanks for taking time to join us again this month! You are such a loyal member of these linkup parties 🙂 I really loved this post on gardening and tips. Wish we had space here for a garden where we can keep the very messy birds and also to plant flowers (I’m a huge fan)!
