Quote Challenge – Day One

My quote for day one is perfect considering my health condition and my constant fight to live my life to the fullest. I will admit that while I could recite most of the poem, I had to look up who wrote it! My endless amount of useless knowledge apparently does not extend to names – because then it would be useful right?! lol

Anyhoo, on to the quote…

Do not go gentle into that good night,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas

I am honoured to have been nominated for this challenge by my new friend and fellow blogger Carol! This amazing and witty woman has two blogs, which I will provide a link to later (because I don’t know how now lol). Her first one brings recipes, trivia about ingredients andย  tales about her life in Thailand! I’m secretly coveting her life! In her second blog, Carol brings Thailand to us all! See, amazing!

Here is the link to her current quotes…

Carol’s quote for day one,

Quote Challenge Day 1 – Don’t Quit on Love

I think that I’m screwing this up lol

Carol’s quote for day two,


Yay! I just learned how to properly post a link! Woohoo! Now I can give you links to Carol’s two sites. Be sure to check them out!

Retired? No one told me! https://blondieaka.wordpress.com/

And https://myhealthyretirement.com/

I will give you a second quote when I can, in the meantime, it is customary to nominate three other bloggers to pick up the challenge. Knowing how busy you are, I will not be offended if you cannot participate; but, it is an excuse to give your latest post a plug, anyway.

So here goes my first one. I bring you Jan Olandese from Book ‘Em, Jan O. I love the paranormal stories – my guilty pleasure – and her funny and witty haikus. They make me giggle so I’m sure you’ll laugh too!


Next I bring you Marci from What’s for Dinner Moms?! I love reading the great recipes and, even better, stories about their wonderful family! Check them out…


For my final nominee, I bring you…ummmmmm, well I’m not sure what her name is because her site is thesecretblogofa30yearold. Wow, that’s a mouthful but it is soooo worth it! She’s a down to earth and kind woman who talks about what all of us as women struggle with. Plus she’s funny!


Well, I hope that I didn’t screw this up too much Carol!? On to the next…
