Adulthood

This is the day 3 of the 2019 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaaPlease join us this month on our writing journey. Today's prompt is Adulthood.

I'm going to be a Eastern Tiger Swallowtail when I grow up.

For us humans, however, adulthood is that wonderful thing you long for as a kid. Many childhood dreams are preceded by the words "When I grow up".  So what happens when we get there? We often realize that life as a kid, despite how it may have looked at the time, was an easier, more carefree existence, especially when I was growing up.

How often now do we ponder life's stress, work, bills, etc. and wish, just for a moment, that we could be a kid again? Yes-No-Sometimes? I would not change what is, but sometimes, just for that moment, I long for the days when the only thing on my mind was riding my bike early on a warm summer morning.

Yes, Please!

This is the day 2 of the 2019 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaaPlease join us this month on our writing journey. Today's prompt is Would you like wine with your cheese?

Okay, that is an easy one! The answer is yes please, certainly, definitely, of course, and why would you think otherwise?

We have been members of the American Wine Society for years, and just completed two years on the board of our local chapter. We have swirled, sniffed and sipped many glasses over the years, learning what we like, and what we don't like (though not so much in the latter category). 

We have raised numerous glasses in toast of friendships formed by the very existence of wine. We've taken trips together, shared meals, and whiled away many an hour in quiet conversation over a bottle.

Good food, good friends, and always wine with our cheese!

The Chill Begins

This is the first day of the 2019 edition of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaaPlease join us this month on our writing journey. Today's prompt is Who Are You?

Good morning and welcome! The question of the day is "who are you"? If you are reading this, then you are either participating in the 20 Days of Chill Challenge, or members of the audience.

As for who I am, lets just say I am busy. After winding down the holidays where there were meals to fix, parties to attend, gifts to purchase and decorations to be put up, I am contemplating the joys of returning the house to it's pre-holiday state of normal disarray.

In addition, I started an on-line store called
Rosie B. Designs the first of November, so I have been busy creating new designs and promoting the store, and as of today I have over 200 items listed. If you scroll down to the post prior to this, you can read all about it.

So now it's January and time for the Chill Challenge. We'll see how long I can keep it going. I have several stories that have been hanging in limbo since previous challenges. 

My name is Busy, who are you?

Let's Go Shopping!


Rosie B. Designs opened for business about a month ago, and a week later I announced the Grand Opening here on Roses to Rainbows. Things are percolating along, and I am building my virtual inventory. I say virtual because that is how Zazzle works. I create and upload designs on various products. When potential customers see something they like, they have the option to purchase it as designed, or in most cases, they are able to customize or personalize it as they wish.

There are currently over 100 products available, and I continue to add new ones each day. I've created a Facebook page for my store at RosieBdesigns97. I would really love it if you would LIKE and SHARE this page with your friends or readers. There is a "shop now" button that takes you right to the store for convenience, or you can go directly at Rosie B. Designs.

Typically, I feel awkward about asking for favors, but if you could go to the store and click on some of the items, that would generate views which will help me a lot. If you want to BUY something, that would be great too. 

Zazzle is constantly running sales and promotions, and with Christmas just around the corner, now is a great time to shop for unique gifts for family and friends. You can find something for everyone at Rosie B. Designs. Products include clothing, Christmas cards and ornaments, notebooks, mugs, tote bags and more. Oh, and of course, a lot of cat-theme products, as you would expect from a shop named after my cat. 

I look forward to seeing you here and at Rosie B. Designs. Thanks and Happy Shopping!!

Taking the Plunge!


Hello friends and fellow bloggers, there are new things on the horizon here at Roses to Rainbows. I have taken the plunge and opened an on-line store. 

Rosie B. Designs is now open for business at Zazzle.com. I would greatly appreciate it if you would stop by and check out my new shop. Items include Christmas cards with coordinating stickers, ornaments, magnets, tote bags, apparel, kitchen & dining items and more.

I am just getting this off the ground so selection is limited at the moment, but I'm working hard on new designs and products every day. Please feel free to browse around anytime because like Roses to Rainbows, it is open 24/7.


Thank you!
