Sunday Post: Solid like a Rock

Jake at Time after Time has a Sunday Post Challenge and every week he provides a theme…this week’s theme is SOLID.


The dictionary defines solid in several ways: substantial, durable and strong…the Colorado Rockies fit that description perfectly!


The dictionary also defines solid as: faithful, constant and honest: a relationship between partners must have these components if it is to succeed.  My husband and I will celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary next month!


Solid can also be defined as competent, conscientious and united…happy are the children whose parents are solid in this way.

If you are not feeling as if you are on solid ground when it comes to choosing activities that can help build self-esteem and develop stronger literacy skills, please take a look at my award-winning resource for parents and teachers… Show Me How! Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking


The book will be featured on Diane Hower’s local NBC affiliate morning show (Grand Junction, CO) at 6am to 7am Mountain Time on Tuesday, July 24th  and will be reviewed on her blog:

I hope everyone will tune in and I’ll try to post the show’s highlights on my blog next week.

    • Hi Susanna…thanks for stopping by…I know how busy you are. 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
      It is actually TV…the local NBC affliate in Grand Junction, CO…I connected with Diane Hower because of a blurb in the SCBWI online June Good News newsletter that spoke of her TV segment…she is the Arts and Cultural Commissioner in Grand Junction. It only goes to show how much is out there and available for sharing one’s message and promting one’s book…but you have to have TIME. 🙂 🙂


  1. Great work Vivian I love the view of your photographs with solid rocks molded by nature ,I know it`s a lot of fun to be there thanks for sharing 🙂


    • Thank you, Jake! Yes, we love it here…and there is a good chance our daughter and her family who live in New Hampshire (2000 miles away) will be relocating HERE within the year. 🙂 🙂 So it gets better and better. 🙂

    • Wow! Can I take you home with me, Milka? 🙂
      Seriously though, the photo of me and my husband hiking in the snow (at Rocky Mountain National Park in Estes Park, CO) was taken several years ago…maybe five? But the pic of me on the righthand sidebar is brandnew…my daughter-in-law took it two weeks ago…and I am 65, so I was not quite the child-bride. 🙂


    • Thank you for stopping by with such lovely comments, Emily! Hope your summer (is it summer where you are now?) is going well.
      I’m so excited…Show Me How is going to be spotlighted on a Colorado morning show on July 24…I’ll try to get the video clip and upload it to the blog.


      • Would love to see that – please share the link on your new post! Very excited for you 🙂

        It’s summer all round in Singapore – either hot and hotter or hot and wet!
        I just noticed the new photo of you on the top right of your blog – wow, what an amazing shot! Looks like something right out of Vogue! Love the dress and the demeanour…no wonder someone thought you look 45 🙂


        • Teehee…with comments like this, my day is filled with sunshine!  Thank you, Emily…you are so sweet.  I will definitely post the link and/or the video clip. 🙂 Sorry it is so hot…hope you and family get a chance to cool off. 🙂
