This is the last post

For the past two years, I’ve toyed with the idea of closing shop on this blog. At the beginning of 2020, I was excited to see where blogging was going to take me. I was excited to share new categories and ideas, and to be honest, the excitement was not there throughout the year as I wanted it to be. I struggled to keep this blog going at times, so I had to take a break to decide what the next step was going to be.

Due to my lack of excitement to blog here anymore, I’ve decided to close this blog. This is going to be the very last post that I write for La Petite Muse. I want to take this opportunity to thank you, the readers, for coming on this journey with me. It was a blessing to be a part of this community for 5 years, but I feel as if it’s time to let this blog go.

After coming to terms with parting with this blog, I was led to open another blog under the same name, but this time with the proper domain address.

If you’re interested in the new blog, do pop in for a visit. It’s still fairly new, but see what it’s all about here:

“Have you seen her dressed for winter?”


Powered sugary dust covered the city

Giving Paris an otherworldly glow.

When they boast about seeing Paris in full bloom in Spring,

I shrug and go, “Have you seen her dressed for winter?”

Thank you, Alex Trebek!

I’m curious about everything. Even subjects that don’t interest me.

Alex Trebek

β€œThere’s a certain comfort that comes from knowing a fact,” Alex Trebek said.

“And here’s your host, Alex Trebek!”

I found out that Alex Trebek passed away earlier today after his battle with cancer. He was surrounded by family and friends. He was 80. Trebek has been a part of my life since childhood when I discovered Jeopardy and it became my all-time favorite game show. Back then, I watched the show every night without fail. At present, I’ve been watching the show in-between and Trebek has been filming throughout his diagnosis. Although he was last in studio on Oct 29th, he has filmed episodes through to December 25th.

For more than 3 decades, Trebek has educated the world with fun and serious knowledge, instilling in us a love of trivia. And not to forget his sense of humor and witty sarcasm!

And now for one last clue: I’ll take “Great TV Personas” for $1000.

QUESTION: He was the most beloved game show host and a national treasure. Who was he?

ANSWER: Who was Alex Trebek?Β 

2020 gives, and 2020 takes away. RIP Alex Trebek - Album on Imgur

1940-2020

Thank you, and farewell, Alex.

Une petite pause βΈ

Salut mesdames et messieurs!

Bonjour Hello GIF by M&G Construction Restauration - Find & Share on GIPHY

I’ve come to the decision to take a hiatus of sorts from WP until next year God’s willing. It’s not that I’m uninspired or have run out of ideas, but I have a lot of things going for me right now in terms of the creative process, online classes, health, and just life in general. I’ve decided to step back a bit to access the various situations and see how best to proceed.

Gigs of Gifs! It's actually pronounced "butt sex" - The Something Awful Forums

However, I still have to log in to post my daily gratitude blog, so if time permits, I’ll read a blog or two – I tend to read the first 8-10 that pops up in the Reader. I already have a few posts scheduled, and I’m currently in the process of revamping the blog once again by getting rid of certain categories and color coding certain posts.Β 

Before I can throw myself into the thick of things, I’m going to take my jacket off…

…and just relax for a bit. I’m going to miss you, but I’ve been inactive lately, so I need to do this for myself. I hope we reconcile soon. May God’s peace be with you.

Adventures of the invisible ‘like’ button

Salut mesdames et messieurs!

Image result for gif announcement

It has come to my attention that the ‘Like’ button on this blog after a post is somewhat invisible to some readers, and they assumed that I disabled the button for certain posts. To set the record straight, I did no such thing. I don’t know if this is a glitch of some sort from WP, but I haven’t been able to leave likes on certain posts unless I open up the blog in Reader, which I now prefer to use when it comes to catching up with my blogging family.

For some reason, the invisible like button reminded me of walking by faith and not by sight. I did not set out to become any top blogger, so the invisibility doesn’t bother me at all. I’m sorry that the button is invisible to some of you, and I hope this issue resolves soon. With WP, if it’s not one thing, it’s another.

The Falliest Post Ever! πŸ‚

Falliest? Surely, there is no such word now!

I love Fall. It’s my favorite season of all the 4 although I don’t get to experience it as most countries do. I live on an island, so Fall for me is when trees start shedding, and leaves start changing in March/April.


I was not inspired to write any new material this Fall, but back in 2017, I wrote a short story and poem for Falltober. Here’s an update of that poem:

Recently, I sat down to sketch a Fall setting, but I ended up on Canva with a blank template and I ended up with this…

…that is now my header. I just wanted to pay tribute to Fall with this little post.Β 

Happy Fall everyone!

Bible Lessons/Reminders

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ¦― The spiritually blind πŸ‘¨β€πŸ¦―

Spiritual blindness is when we’re unable to SEE God or to comprehend His message. This is a grievous condition that affects not only the spiritually blind individual but also his followers. Look at the condition and state of many churches today! The Gospel has been watered down so much that preachers are now preaching chocolate-coated lies thus weaving a sinister deception.

We’re in serious trouble if we don’t sit and read/study the Word. We’re in serious trouble if we wait for the preacher to tell us how to act, think, or feel. We’re in serious trouble if we continue to follow along the yellow-bricked road with this sweet-tongued preacher, for a spiritually blind person cannot lead God’s sheep into a spiritual relationship with Christ.

It’s time to wake up and open your eyes to deception, for Jesus is returning soon.

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

Matthew 15:14
