U Is For Up

I have one of those pop-up umbrellas. You know the ones the the handle extends and then they POP open.
I hate it.
A light breeze blows it inside out.
Good thing I don't mind getting wet, and good thing my post isn't about umbrellas.
I've decided there are 3 types of people in the world.
The one who look down when they walk. The ones who look straight ahead when they walk, and the ones who have a tendency to look up and around when walking.
I took this with my Samsung phone at Noon est today.
My photo tells you #1, which person I am, and #2 It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
I am definitely the dreamer. The one with her head in the clouds. I spend enough time looking up that I've developed Olyve Oyl syndrome and don't look very stable on my own two feet sometimes. I hear a plane, and actually have to hold hubby's arm while walking so I don't make it into traffic.
I just can't help myself.
I'm enamored by the great beyond and all the possibilities it holds.

So tell me, which of the 3 types are you?

  1. I'm prone to all 3 types of walking, depending on my mood, the time of day, the reason for the walk etc.
    Walking to and from work I tend to look straight ahead - focussing on the things I have to get done.
    If I'm walking with my phone/camera looking for Instagram inspiration I tend look down for interesting details or up for panoramic vistas!
    If I'm in a bad mood. I tend to watch my feet. But I also watch my feet on rainy days :-)

  5. I must be the kind who looks all around. It gets me in trouble many a time, tripping and falling. But who wants to look at the ground all the time! {:-D

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
