Nothing like it being spring BBQ weather – especially when you have a friend with an awesome entertainment area. It always feels like summer is coming once it is BBQ weather.
There is something about a good afternoon storm. It is even better when you can sit outside and watch it come through. It is mother nature providing entertainment with awesome lightning and thunder. With a recent absence of rain, it is also just nice to finally have a decent downpour.
Tomorrow is the 1st of February 2016. One month ago, many people around the world were setting goals for 2016. Most people have already given up on those goals. Most people had already ‘failed’ within the first week.Why?
Why do people like to set goals? And why do they so often fail?
Have you ever noticed that over time, we tend to stick with the familiar? We do the same things over and over again?
Certainly it is something I find I do, but I think it is good to step outside of your comfort zone from time to time and try something new.
The Glass Lake by Maeve Binchy is a book that was leant to me by a friend but definitely up my alley.
The book is primarily about a daughter as she grows into adulthood following the drowning death of her mother. It follows her into adulthood with a number of twists and turns. While the plot twists are a little predictable at times, the story is certainly one that draws you in. The author does a good job of putting you in the shoes of the main character and how the various events impact her. However, the book also seems to attempt to have the ready feel compasionate towards a character whose actions lead to considerable pain for other characters and this can create a bit of conflict in the reader.
Overall though, it was a good, nice easy read. I would rate it 7/10.
Nelipot is someone who walks without shoes. So while it might be quite nice to be nelipot in summer, if it is too hot outside you might just burn your feet!
Dentiloquent pertains to one who talks through their teeth. So while this might be a handy if you are a ventriloquist, for your average person, being dentiloquent would make you more difficult to understand. Have you tried talking through your teeth?
Gambrinous- to be full of beer. I wonder how maqny people will be gambrinous over the Christmas and New Year period?
An Abecedarian is someone who is learning the alphabet. So the highest population of Abecedarian’s is 3 and 4 year olds around the world.
Don’t be afraid to spread your wings……you might land somewhere exciting.
Of course, you might just land somewhere not so good by spreading your wings and trying something new. The fear of landing somewhere bad, of messing things up, of people thinking we are a failure/stupid/reckless etc. is what stops many of us from trying. But should it? Stop and have a look at the most successful people you know. Have they always gotten things right? Is everything they have ever tried been a success? Has anyone ever ridiculed them for their ideas or what they are attempting to achieve?
