Christmas in Ocotillo

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on December 21, 2011 at 7:53 am

Christmas in Ocotillo, AZ feels a lot like spring.
Though you can’t shake the good hearted feeling that the season naturally brings.

Neighbors with lights on house, in yard and on door…
Reminds me of another Christmas — the year before.

I was in Arlington, TX last year – Home of The Cowboys.
There were sleigh bells, high heels, boots and party noise.

Folks easily fall into the spirit of love at Christmas time,
which is the perfect setting for “its true meaning” to shine.
Ol’ JC is a navigator of mine.

Mm-hm. We go wayyy back
to 1971 [birth] and a 2 bedroom flat.

Yep! We’ve always been like that.
Tighter than Whitney was to crack. lol!

Speaking of – I’ve heard the sober Whit’ is coming back.
Forgoing to proclaim aloud that: anything is whack. lol!

Remember when she said that?
The interview energy was hot, but her CD Sales fell flat.
Hot diggity dang! I do remember that.

Hopefully this season will find Whitney feeling great,
and piling up a lot more ruffage onto her plate.

The mid size songstress looks good for her age.
I do pray that she’s [for good] kicked the crack/coke phase.

Back to Ocotillo – It sure does feel good
to finally get settled into my new neighborhood.

I’ve got the tree in the GR [great room] and a Christmas Menu in mind.
I’m preparing to feed 5, which is better than 6 or 9.

THANK GOD! I’m not on “grandmother shine”.
Nope. That title isn’t close to being mine.

Because my daughter’s bringing her “steady GF” home for dinner.
So I don’t think reproducing (at this point) is quite in her. lol!

The temperatures in Arizona are certainly those to boast.
They’re definitely kin to those beach’y warm winds of the sunny West coast.
Mmmm. I’m loving the temperatures most.

I’m missing Ag-Town too, but then you already know,
I’m Qui
and CHRISTMAS (for me) is everyday – so: Welcome Ocotillo!

Still hung over — From The PROM

Seguin Prom 2011 Trailer

Last weekend hailed for me: NO BORING BUMMER.
I was front and center filming Seguin Seniors in the HUMMER.

Its was fun – it was live – it was dope.
It was clean – with no alcohol and no kind of smokes.

Just young folks doing it the way WE do;
then QUI FILMS bumb rushed the scene & filmed the view.
Oooo!

I’m hung over from the amount of fun and good vibes taken in,
I’m Qui
Loving the weekend and these new MONDAY begins!
Always STRETCH OUT the WIN!!!!

Being a THANKFUL Being

Yep! I’ve never shied away from saying THANKS. I am by far the most THANK YOU saying person, most folk that I know have ever met. In fact, I’ve heard that my repeated THANK YOU responses coupled with my bubbly, happy-go-lucky attitude has killed many a professional colleague on many occasions. I never mean to be a nuisance, but to not be happy and to not say thank you would be totally out of my character and well…it would make me feel uncomfortable.

Sure I know some folks that grimace at the thought of having to do
Something as simple and inexpensive as saying “THANK YOU”.

I’ve never understood why they wouldn’t – I don’t put much thought in it;
But to render it when it is due is a great investment – do spend it.

Say THANK YOU as much as you can; whenever a kind gesture moves you to say so,
And you will find folks will return it in kind – as you go about your to and fro.

Trust me I know – I’m ramping up even more as Thanksgiving draws near.
I’m grateful for my life, health, and strength, as well as those who I hold dear.

I’m thankful THE COWBOYS WON today. I’m thankful they finally WON at home.
I’m thankful that I could watch it in Ag-town, residing so close to each end zone.

I’m thankful DON LEMON got so much face time this weekend & FREDRICKA WHITFIELD too,
I’m grateful CNN continues to reflect positive faces that look alot like me and you.
Oooo!

I’m really happy you stopped by to read me – I’m definitely A Monday Lover off the cuff.
Other races call black folks “A Monday”; and I — just can’t get enough.

I’m looking forward to THANKSGIVINGregardless of the 5-course fancy meal,
I’m Qui
THANKFUL for the opportunity to get literal with you & film reality on the reel.

Thank You, thank you, THANK YOU SO MUCH
