Blogging from A to Z April Challenge- Letter P


 to my second year in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

Since I plan to retire shortly, I thought an alphabetical look back at my paying library career and a look ahead to my crafting and writing career would be a good use of my 26 days in this challenge, 26 wonderful words for retiring me. Hope you enjoy. I am looking forward to reading whatever you share this month on your blogs, too.

Published- (to issue in copies made by printing or other processes for sale or distribution to the public as a book, or the like.) 
For many years, I have been submitting poems and articles to the library's publications. Recently, I have been writing a column titled "Tails from the furry side", devoted to the animals that have wandered through my life. There was the story of the great gerbil massacre, an article about our family dog Monger, tales of our many cats, inside and out.
I am collecting all my material off my work computer and I'll be posting some of it here for publishing on my blog. Stop back in a few weeks for a view.

Looking ahead: 
Poem- (a composition in verse.)
Paint the sky blue or yellow
From now on I'll be quite mellow.

I'll paint my skies as I see fit,
I'll dance around and sing a bit.

And write my name in letters gold,
On the poems I make, if I am so bold.

I'll create all day to my heart's desire,
Now that I've chosen to retire.

Thank you for visiting.

The published and the poem are both a lot of fun!

I am not certain I want to know anything about the great gerbil massacre, LOL. I do like the poem.
