Hello friends. I have been a bit derailed in life in general lately- no blog posts, no progress on my pet projects, mostly nothing at all. I wanted to share a little heart to heart with you on that. Just a few weeks apart I faced the death of not one, but two grandparents. I

Just wanted to share these lovely flowers real quick with you all. There’s something about a bouquet that is very comforting after a loved one’s funeral.
Happy New Year Full of good cheer And happy days ahead. Happy New Year Filled with love And new friends And old friends Who won’t let you drink and drive. Just have a great celebration, And a Happy New Night.
First of all I’d like to wish a Happy Holidays to you for whatever holiday you’ve celebrated this month. That said, I’m excited because Christmas is here! I’ll spend the morning enjoying my great grandma’s secret recipe for coffee cake and exchanging presents with my parents and siblings, and then in the afternoon we’ll go
Today is my birthday! Put out the cake because this is going to be a good celebration. I think birthdays tend to lose their power a little as we grow up into adults, but I still enjoy mine. I’ve changed how I enjoy it though. Now my birthday is all about an excuse to meet
I’m so blessed to have you here. No, I really mean that. I’ve taken on a lot of new jobs and chase several dreams this year- become a full time author, started writing two blogs full time. Some of you have stuck by me since my first year blogging and I’ll always be grateful for
I have fully unveiled my renovated Pinterest account! You can access it here. I backlisted some of my previous posts as pins, and I’m working on making sure my future posts are connected there. I also have started making Pinterest exclusive content that will be unveiled through this week as well as going forward. Look
This isn’t a very serious post at all, but this is a pretty fun little thing I noticed. We used to have one of those bazillion ton two feet ish deep monster so called “flat screens’- because the screen was flat they used to call them that even when the body was a foot thick
The Anti Color Of The Year Pantone’s color of the year is Radiant Orchid. Not normal orchid, mind you. Radiant. So it slipped into a vat of nuclear waste and, when angry, it pulses out blindingly radiant light waves, or it turns evil with its anger and becomes the stinky corpse flower of doom. Yeah,
Very Inspiring Poet Award I posted the first edition of this poetry blog award here. I’ll admit it, that post was written in my first year of blogging, and I hadn’t really met even half of the amazing blog friends I have now, just a short time later. So the post did link to four
Was this title in poor taste? It did rather hint at MLK, the much lauded search for true love, and… and dental care. I know, it doesnt sound exciting. And it really shouldnt. All of that saliva, and gum disease, not to mention the rank stench of decay coming from patients who obviously skip a
Here I swim around. Fun is hardly found ’round here. No friends and rare food. That may be the life of the sad beta fish above, but a much larger tank in the Atlantic City Aquarium shows much happier seahorses. I think the fish at the Denver Aquarium, which I visited last Winter, were happiest,
The Shauny Award Dear Kitty of Some Blog nominated me for the sparkly new Shauny Award for blogging excellence. There aren’t really any rules for the award, which is pretty cool. I mean, freestyle awarding. How cool is that? I’m not really sure where the excellence is in my little blog, as I don’t really
The Bunnies are Coming. Right here, right now. You may have noticed this year that I’ve changed the name of the blog. This is now “Out of the Hat.” It sounds kind of cute and interesting, and it is loosely connected to the site address, which is still The Great Zambini. I guess I kind
One Lovely Blog Award I received the One Lovely Blog award from Ajaytao 2010. I`m so honored to have so many friends in this community! Here is my second award (gained in a single week!) The rules? Easy peasy. All you have to do is show the blog picture in the post, link to your
