Blog All About It June 2019

Posted June 15, 2019 by Sophia Rose in Blog All About It Challenge / 14 Comments


Welcome to my first post of the year of the Blog All About It Challenge.  This is the beginning of my second year participating.

What’s it all about?

Very simple!  Each month I take the word prompt for that month and create a blog post of anything I want using that word.  My personal goal for participating in this challenge is for you to learn a bit about me each month. 

This month’s prompt is: Risk

Hmm, I wouldn’t describe myself as someone who takes risks or is at risk though there have been times in my life that I have done the leap of faith decision which might have been considered a risk, I suppose.

Anyhoo… I really couldn’t think of what to share about myself that would suit the prompt so I got creative.  I chose to do an acronym out of the word itself with words/phrases that describe me. There! A bit about me and somewhat sticking with the spirit of the challenge.

R: Red, Road Trips, Riding Trails, Reese’s Pieces, Rainy Nights for sleeping

I:  Ice Cream (black cherry or mint chocolate chip), Illustrated Books, Imagining, Ink

S: Sandals, Soft blankets, Scooby Doo, Surf, Salads, Sicily

K:  Kisses, Kilts, Kitchens, Kabobs, Kaleidoscopes, (cool) keychains

I leave you with a picture of book titles for each letter that are on my TBR shelf.

Any of my RISK words strike a chord with you?  Got any to add to those? Do Tell!

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

Mint Chocolate Chip sounds good right about now. I also like pistachio.

Doesn’t it though? I’ve never tried pistachio and I like it. I’ll have to give it a try.

Love what you did for the prompt this month!
And I don’t find myself being risky. I overthink and overplan.

Thanks, Carole! I was wracking my mind to figure out what to do. 🙂 I’m with you, I overthink so much.

I might have been risky in my long ago new adulthood or even a bit in high school, but now I’m a bit of the stick in the mud sort. I love ice cream the best of all sweets, but my tastes run to the chocolates with marshmallow and caramel sauces. I love soft blankets and rainy nights for sleeping as well and you can’t beat a good salad! Fun post!

Haha! You had some fun back in the day. Yeah, ice cream is my weakness. 🙂 I’m a caramel fan, too.

Ah, fall is great for needing my soft blanket, too.

Glad you liked the post, Lorna!

Great post girl, I like the way you did your acronym!

Haha, yeah, it was a tough one for me. 🙂

Hey, you’re welcome to snitch it.

I’m not one to take risks either. Have you had Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Ice Cream?!!!
It’s my fav. I also love mint chip, chocolate chip and cookies and cream. I’m a sandal person too, and only wear tennis shoes when it’s raining. Yes to road trips, and rainy nights for sleeping (and reading.). Blankets are something that I love to cuddle with. What a fun post Sophia. Thanks for sharing. It’s fun getting to know you.

I really need to try Cherry Garcia. You’d think I’d have done that by now. LOL
Yep, it had to be the dead of winter before I give up my sandals. 🙂

Glad to share a bit of me with you, Lindy.
