Home Sweet Home

Hello WordPress followers! I have been on a bit of a hiatus lately, I just returned home from a vacation in California! I came home to snow which was rough after spending 9 days in Cali weather. It was a bit chilly at night but during the day was pretty nice there, now I’m back to scraping snow off my car in the morning! I will be posting pictures of my trip, we traveled to a lot of different parts of Cali so there’s a bunch that I will be uploading. I just wanted to check in and say hi before I fell asleep (in my own bed!) Crazy how being away from blogging can drive one crazy! But I’m glad to be back. 🙂

Here’s a photo tease from Castaic Lake… so beautiful! The mountains were amazing to look at since I have none where I live.

10 Signs You’re Getting Older

6. Others around you are getting engaged and having babies. Some even on purpose.

7. You don’t enjoy going out to bars and clubs anymore. The crowd drives you crazy and you rather be home watching movies.

8. You realize that things can actually go wrong to your car (that cost money) and you must stop driving it like you’re in NASCAR.

9. You get excited when there’s a sale.

Things Take Time

Thanks to all my followers for staying connected with me! I have reached 125 of you today! I’m looking forward to writing more and gaining more and more followers. For any of you just starting out with blogging – it takes time! I definitely learned this while I was starting out, it takes time to build things that you really want. I’m still in the process of getting used to it and how the website works, just starting today with guest blogging which was cool. If anyone is interested in doing this, I will post any of your work on my page and you will post one of mine on yours! It’s great to gain more traffic on your blog and get your posts out there for more people to see. Please email me if you would like to guest blog with me: triolachelsea@gmail.com

Have a good night followers & keep on writing 🙂

Putting on the mask and headdress

Guilt, your faith in the gods ends your distress

For you have a duty to the people of your tribe

A shaman you pick up on the heavenly vibe

The seasons are changing the rain stops

The sun shines and dries the crops

Your people are dying without something to eat

A human sacrifice is required their end they must meet

A willing soul makes their way

A bow of the head nothing to say

They lie on the stone alter

Hand steady, your courage cannot falter

You draw the obsidian blade and slice the skin

A chant you grant a remission of sin

The life drains out of the deceased

Blood collects in the cup held by the priests

Heart cut out still beating

Tlaloc will reward our offering, the limbs are for eating

Cannibalistic values to gain power

Our tribe has the strength to make any other cower

We are not savage beasts

Just doing what we have to survive

I’m just a man
