What’s Up?

What’s Going On?

I Am All of these things, and so are you🍷

This is where I talk about what is going on that interests me. This is where I inspire and encourage myself. This is where I ask myself, “What’s Up?”©2021

My new “What’s Up?” is exercising and working out. Taking care of myself and my body is very important to me. I am not getting any younger, so, I must do what I need to do for myself to make sure I can be the best me ever. So, until next time, “What’s Up?”©2021

Libras love peace, beauty, and romance🍷

“What’s Up?”, I just opened my eyes from taking a much-needed nap. I feel great! I feel energized! It has been a very long time since I have said that. 😂 Sometimes I crack myself up! Maybe I should have been a comedian! So, now I am going to have a healthy snack; grapes sound good.

Fruit, the portable, healthy snack. Have some!

Back to “What’s Up?”. There’s nothing wrong with taking a nap. It is your body telling you that it is sleepy and tired. When I get to where I cannot hold my eyes open, no matter how hard I try; I know right then it is time for a nap. I guess I was like this when I was a kid, but it is a good thing. ©2021

Taking naps is good for you.

“What’s up?” At the end of my day when I am ready to turn in, I get really fidgety, cranky, and irritable. I cannot really focus on anything I am trying to do. It is like this; My body talks to me. I know right then it is time to turn in. When I am relaxed and comfortable is when I fall asleep. I cannot fall asleep until then.

Hello moon! Goodnight moon.

“What’s Up?”, Well, it has been a great day! I am calling it a day. Until tomorrow, “What’s Up?” ©2021

Tomorrow is going to be a beautiful day.

“What’s Up?”, Well it has been two days since I have written anything here so, I have been writing on my sites trying to stay caught up on things. I have not worked out because this asthma has been bothering me, and pain in my back has been bothering me also.

“What’s Up?”, Just finished writing some poetry, and sitting here watching my favorite movies. I have so much on my mind. I need to redo my hair. I suppose I will next week, but for certain it will be redone before December. I hope the new year will be better for me. Well, I am calling it a night, until tomorrow, “What’s Up?” ©2021

Bursting with joy!

What’s Up?”, Today has been a study day for me. Trying to get caught up on my Bible studies, and replying to messages. It was very pretty outside; it was very warm for a Fall Day. The sky was blue and pretty. Hopefully tomorrow will be pretty too. Until then, “What’s Up?” ©2021

How beautiful?

“What’s Up?”, Today has been awesome! The sun was shining after the wind and rain. I just pretty much chilled. Heard some disturbing news on the radio though which broke my heart. I did my prayer meditation, and wished my son a happy birthday! 🎉🎉🎉 I spoke with a recruiter about a job I applied for…it went well. Very excited though! Posted on my Sweet Treats site, did a picture story on Food for the Soul; I did not feel like writing an article, but I will tomorrow. I need to write some poetry for my site, and write a story for my Art site.

“What’s Up?”, I need to call my son and check on him. I believe I will watch a movie on my phone, because this DVD, Get Over It is very dull…about to make me sleepy. This lemon cream cake was good! Well, I am calling it a 🌃. Until tomorrow, “What’s Up?” ©2021

Peace and Beauty

What’s Up?”, Today is sunny and bright with a little chill in the air, just enough to let us know that Summer is no more. Music plays in the distance as the melodic sounds dance in the breeze. Me, I am feeling a bit emotional and somber; I don’t know why though. Should I go outside? Should I stay in? Should I take a walk just to enjoy the breeze? Something nice to sip on sounds refreshing. Poetry and stories to finish writing of the seasons and dream sequences. Artistic thoughts to write about, religion in the forefront every day. ©2021

Beautifully Majestic Masterpiece.

“What’s UP?”, I would like to someday go and see the mountains. It would be a great experience for me because I love mountains. They are so grand and majestic. They have been around for many generations. This picture takes my breath away… It is so beautiful. I wish I could take a picture in front of it. The trees are also beautiful with the Fall colors glowing through. I would love to walk along that little trail and explore what is there. I would love to have a picnic at the foot of the mountain to make memories to share, but it us just a dream. Until next time, “What’s Up?” ©2021

This is a yellow willow plant. The pic. above is of myself, Shaunelius S. The Author of “What’s Up?”

“What’s Up?”, I took this picture at the lake. I had so much fun. I looked up the picture on Google to see what kind of plant it was. Now that I know what it is, I am glad I took the picture. The weather was awesome. It was cool, but not so cool where a jacket was needed, but a light sweater was good enough to keep the chill off.

“What’s Up?”, Today was a study day for me. I caught up on some of my Bible studies, replied to posts, and enjoyed the pretty sunshine. It was very cold this morning, had to turn on the heat to warm the house. Watching movies is starting to get mundane. I just might watch television on my phone.

“What’s Up?”, I was going to take my braids out today, but since it is Sunday, I will do it tomorrow morning.  I don’t have any idea as to how I am going to style it after it is all said and done, but I do know it will be up for at least a week depending on how I fix it. Well, I am going to end this here and call it a night. Until tomorrow, “What’s Up?” ©2021

Absolutely Beautiful. Kissed with snow.

“What’s Up?”

Grapes, the fun fruit we all love.

This gif makes me laugh. “What’s Up everyone?” Today has been splendid! I am filled with joy! What ‘s going on in your part of the world? I hope all is well. “What’s Up?”, Well, I finally removed my extension braids, and OMG! My hair has grown so much and gotten so thick. I should have taken some pictures but I was tired. I was glad it was all said and done. It will be a long while before I put in some more braids. “What’s Up?” Speaking of grapes, the portable versatile fruit. I never tire of eating them. I really like the green ones.  They are sweet and tart at the same time. Whether room temperature or cold, they are good. “What’s Up?” Well, I am going to call it a 🌃, until tomorrow 🌅 sleep tight and sweet dreams. “What’s Up?”©2021


Today has been somewhat of a day. It was so busy. Trying to learn something new can be hard, but for me it isn’t. I had a few setbacks, but it soon passed. Coffee and Chocolate Zingers couldn’t keep me from yawning. I made my way through the day was easy. Time went by fast though, but all in all it was fun. I just don’t like the heavy traffic when I get off, people be driving crazy. I take the safest way home that is right for me. ©2021

Work comes in all forms.

“What’s Up?”, I know it has been a while since I have stopped by here to write, and I am sorry. I have been very busy working on my other sites, memorizing stuff for work, taking and passing tests. Last week I missed writing over here, but it was not intentional. Overall, I am happy, but this nagging pain in my back just will not leave me alone. I am really tired of it. Pain makes me edgy and cranky. Well, Wednesday I will have more time to relax and rest my back. Until tomorrow evening, “What’s Up?” ©2021

Candles makes relaxing even better.

“WHAT’S UP?” Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

“What’s Up?”, Well Christmas is 23 days away everybody! The sun is still shining. The weather is cool and fresh. This is the season for sharing good will to everyone. It is the time for peace on earth and celebrating the birth of our King, Jesus Christ. It is the time to think about His humble beginning. It is time to be joyful and grateful to God for sending His only Son to this earth to redeem us. Had He not sent Jesus, there would not be any reason to celebrate Christmas. We are to appreciate all of the things God has done, and are doing for us through His Son.

“What’s Up “, We look forward to cooking all of the things we want to have for Christmas. We look forward to dressing up and looking perfectly great. We look forward to opening gifts, and having fun if the weather permits us to do so. Whatever we want to do, we can do it even if it is cold outside; unless it is below zero and we have to stay inside. Even if it is just, you and the one you love, fun can still be had.

Whatever you decide to do for Christmas, just have fun and enjoy yourselves to the fullest. Until next time, “What’s Up?” ©2021

Merry Christmas!


“What’s Up?”, Hey! I know it has been a few weeks since I have stopped by to chat. I have been doing other things such as setting up my website for my new journal called: Diva’s Journal. It is amazing! I designed it myself and added all of the features. Now all I have to do is upgrade it to a paid plan so I can do more to it. It will be a while before I do though. I will add more pages to it as I come up with new things to write about. I like my theme though. It is different from my others. It looks like I live in New York. That is a place to visit, not to live in my opinion. Well, I suppose I will try to do something to my hair, but every time I say something about straightening my hair, he has something to say about it, but he always wants his done, “What’s Up with that?” I am going to fix my hair how I want to fix it. Bringing it to a close. Until next time, “What’s Up?”

Christmas is on the way and so is the new year.  Let us remember the true meaning of the season. ©2021

Merry Christmas!


This is Shaunelius!, your lovely host on “What’s Up?” Today’s topic is Winter, and what do you think about it with this year coming to an end?

In my opinion, Winter is a season just like any other, except it is cold, which is void of heat. I like it to a certain extent. I like it because I can wear my favorite sweaters, hats, shades, and scarves. Now, as far as the year coming to an end, it has been good in certain aspects, but on the other hand it has not been good due to the viruses we have been facing. Who would have known this was going to roll over into 2022? This is crazy! I at least thought the new coming year was going to be better than this year. I guess we will just have to wait to see what is going to take place as the new year unfolds.

WHAT’S UP?” What are your thoughts on the Omicron Virus? Hit me back and tell me what you think. Until next time people, “WHAT’S UP?” ©2021

For the beautiful rose that I am who shines like a golden butterfly. 🌹🦋

“What’s Up?” Merry Christmas everyone! It is a very beautiful day today! No, there’s no snow, but that is fine. The sun is shining and all is well. Do not forget to tell Jesus Happy Birthday! This day is all about Him. We all have received a gift that keeps on giving. Our gift will never leave us nor forsake us. Our gift laid down His life for us. What more can we ask for? He is the Great I Am, and He always will be. He is who my heart desires. “What’s Up? ©2021

Happy birthday Jesus, we love You always forever!

“What’s Up?”, Today has been wonderful. Everything was perfect. This Christmas is a Christmas I will not soon forget. Now it is almost time to say goodbye to this year. It has not been perfect, but we have managed to get through it with God’s help. I am calling it a night. Until tomorrow, “What’s Up?” ©2021

Infused Tea and white roses.

What’s Up?” It’s the day after Christmas and today started off gray and cloudy like it was going to rain, but the sun came out and the rain clouds went away. It was beautiful outside after all. I didn’t go outside though. I stayed inside and caught up on some writings. I am getting sleepy now, so, I am getting ready to call it a night. Until tomorrow, “What’s Up?” ©2021.

Sweet dreams

“WHAT’S UP?”, Today is the last day in 2021. In another hour it will be 2022! This year has passed by so fast. This will be the last post for this year. It has been great sharing my thoughts and ideas with everyone.  There is still so much to do though, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. I am going to eat for the last time in 2021. Happy New Year’s!!!!  Until tomorrow, “What’s up?” ©2021 December 31, 2021@11:21 p.m. Friday

“What’s Up?”, It is 2022 everybody! We made it through 2021. I am going to have a great year! I am looking forward to great things, to be more productive, and to be successful in all that I do. I am cutting people out of my life who causes me stress and anxiety. I don’t need people like that in my life at all. I only want positive people around me, and I pray God will make this happen for me as soon as possible! I am sick of negative people. If it were not cold, I would walk to the park just to get away from here, away from this negativity.  I just want to be happy from now on. My new motto is:” If you don’t have good intentions for me, do not come around me, or talk to me. I do NOT need you in my life, or in my circle!” This is my MOTTO from now on! This also includes BULLIES!!!

What’s Up?”, I am going to enjoy myself today if it means writing and drawing, or painting. Whatever I decide to do is my own decision. I do not need any permission to do what I feel like doing. I belong to no one but God, He is the only one I have to answer to from now on. So, until next time, “What’s Up?” ©2022 January 1, 2022 Saturday@12:19 p.m.

Having a Blessed New Year all year long!


This is the start of a brand-new year! I am looking forward to this year and all of the blessings I am going to receive. I am going to be more productive this year. I will plan and schedule what I will do to keep myself on track. I will not allow anyone to steal my joy. I will not talk to negative people. I will not give in to their foolishness of any kind. I will not be used. I will not be taken advantage of. I will not allow disrespect. I will not be passive, but aggressive. I will not be afraid to speak how I feel. I will not stop improving myself. I am who I am. If people cannot accept me for who I am, they can kick rocks. Well, I have joy in my heart. I am happy. Everything is good in my space, and no one is allowed to invade it. No one is welcome in my space unless I invite them except God, He is always welcome. This is how I am feeling at this point. I am going to “do me, and nothing else matters except that.” Until next time, happy New Year! “What’s Up?” ©2022. Sunday 1/2/22 @ 12:46p.m.

A Very Cold Day 1/3/22 Monday©2022

What’s Up?” Today it is very cold. I wanted to go outside for a while, but I didn’t. I talked to my son when he called today. I cooked ribs and cabbage. It turned out good. I just watched videos and played my games. I really did not write much, but I commented on a few posts. Well, I am calling it a night. Until next time, “What’s Up?”©2022

Enjoying My Day 1/4/22 Tuesday©2022

“What’s Up?”  Today is going well. I started looking for a job that I know I am going to enjoy working at. I am tired of the same old thing. I want to learn how to do something new, have a position that I can grow into and move up at the same time… I just want this year to be better than all of the other years. I am going to continue my education on line since things are the way they are. I suppose I will pass this time but it is going to take time and a lot of studying. Well, I am going to relax now. Until tomorrow, “What’s Up?”©2022

Still Searching 1/5/2022 Wednesday ©2022

“What’s Up?” Today I searched for a job, filled out applications, called them and was offered a position working overnights. I accepted it, but I decided that may not be something I wanted to do all of the time, and plus I would be by myself with no help, so I will not work at that store. I will keep looking until I find the store that’s right for me. I do want a good schedule but that was not it. I guess I will keep searching. I am calling it a day. Until next time, “What’s Up?”©2022

Still Waiting 1/6/2022 Thursday©2022

“What’s Up?” Today I am preparing for tomorrow. It is not going to be an easy day for me. I am going to need strength to endure what is going to take place, but until then I will remain peaceful. Still no answer back from a call I made, but that’s alright. God will work it all out. I commented on a few posts and posted my verse as I always do. I need to wash my hair and condition it, but I don’t know if I am because of the weather. I am going to play my games now, and listen to some music for a while. Until tomorrow, “What’s Up?”©2022

Holding On to Hope©2022 Friday 1/7/2022

“What’s Up?” Today is the kind of day that happens in the movies. It feels like a nightmare that I cannot wake up from. It is as if things are moving in slow motion, just sitting for hours waiting. Finally, time passes, and the time comes not counting everything in between, but the reality of it all is now in the forefront for everyone to hear and to know but not affecting others, but the one who has been waiting for hours. Words spoken falls on the ears of the oppressed…not knowing what to do, or how to turn back the hands of time to make it all go away. Tears flow from the eyes of the carrier as the fetus hears their fate. Emotions erupt from without the walls of justice knowing that it will not escape the heart of those hurt by the injustice which justice is supposed to prevent. What is justice when it is blind? What is justice when it takes away a person’s name and place them in the system as a number like a needle being lost in a haystack never to be remembered again. What does one do when it all is so complicated to figure out? Hearing dreaded words to shock the mind. How can mend from it all? How can the mind rest knowing that their fetus is going away for a very long time not knowing when the fetus will return? Only time will tell as the years come and go, but hearing the words the fetus spoke warmed the carrier’s heart, but only to depart from the walls of justice with injustice playing over and over again to no end. The sad fact is that it is not television but real life, not a dream but a living nightmare. Something to face one day at a time. Something that will remain in front of the carrier’s mind. Broken and bleeding heart never departs the soul of the hurt and the oppressed. Until next time, What’s Up?”©2022

Disbelief ©2022 Saturday 1/8/2022

“What’s Up?” Today for me is disbelief. It does not seem like Saturday. I just do not feel anything. I feel like I am on an emotional rollercoaster and I cannot get off. Words playing over and over again in my head like a tape recorder. Memories I wanted to make I will not get to make now. I guess I am on my own with those things. There is so much I wanted to do. I just have to have faith and be strong through it all. I have a job that will keep my mind occupied. I am glad she called yesterday. I eventually got the type of schedule I wanted and a good company to work for. I am somewhat happy, I guess it will take a minute to adjust to everything. I ate some Lamb and Macaroni. It was good though. Ate my cheesecake. Watched movies, washed my hair and waited until it dried and called it a night. Until tomorrow. “What’s Up?” ©2022

Sunday Blessing©2022 January 9, 2022

Today has been a good day. I got an assistant manager’s position. It came as a surprise to me. I was not expecting that. I am very happy! It is turning about right just like I want it to. I cannot wait to have my own store one day, and I believe it is going to be sooner than I think. I am thankful God made this possible for me. I am ready to learn everything so I can keep on moving up in the business. Someone tried to start an argument but I ignored it. Nothing is going to ruin my joy. Well until next time, “What’s Up?”©2022

Saturday, 3/26/22 Catching Up

“What’s Up?” It has been a while since I have written anything over here. I have been so busy living life, and I just lost focus of what I needed to do. It’s alright though because I have everything together and organized. It has been hard for me though since I lost someone I loved very much. I will get through it though. Today, I am catching up all of my site pages and my blog sites that I need to post on. I have been reading a lot trying to get back focused spiritually like I was in the beginning when I started all of this. Well, until next time, “What’s Up?”

Absolutely refreshing!

“What’s Up?”

Sparkling Roses!

I am sparkling just like these roses. My talents are bursting through my fingers from my thoughts. Books are being born from my mind from my talents. I cannot wait to see what I will create next, now that’s “What’s Up?


This is “What’s Up”. My Life: From the Back Burner by LA’BREA AQUARIA.

This is my first book I have ever published in my life. This was a long time coming. My dream has come true. I am an official published author. I still feel like I am dreaming. The reality of it all is still setting in. I have always called myself an author, so I was telling the truth. All of my writing finally paid off. I am a new author, so it is going to take a while for everyone to get to know me. It is going to take time for it to set the world on fire. When it is purchased, I hope that everyone enjoys reading it, and tell others about it. I pray God will bless my book. It took a lot of courage to write this book. I wanted to share my story with the world. My book is good, it came from my heart, mind, and soul. I had to relive good and bad moments that I had forgotten about that brought me pain and tears. There were a lot of sleepless nights that went over into the next day writing this book; it means a lot to me. I have shared my life with the whole world and that’s something I never thought I would ever do, something that was so far out of reach is now a reality for me. I hope to really turn my book into a talk show, and a movie about my life. That would be so great! It would give others a chance to talk about what they have been through in their life and the things they have come through. I know what it is like to want to share something but don’t know how because of fear. I could not let fear stop me from writing my book. I could not let what others may think stop me from writing my book. I could not let doubt creep in and kill my motivation to write. I did what I had to do to get it done and completed.

It is here now and ready for the public to purchase. I have written something that my children can be proud of, something my family can be proud of, and something that my haters can hate about. My life is not my own, but sharing it with the world is what I have done, and it is only right that it is appreciated and respected. I have read many books written by other authors, but now I have the blessing to read my own book. I cannot help but to be proud of myself because of what I have accomplished in my life at the age of 47 years young. I only wish my children were here to share this moment with me. To share my joy. To see the smiles on their faces, and they see the smile on mine. Maybe one day, someday soon all of this will happen, until it does, I am just going to savor every moment given to me to enjoy my new success! Now that is “What’s Up”! L.A.


“What’s Up?” I am enjoying my new life as a writer. I am still letting it all sink in. There are days when I still feel like I am dreaming. I look at myself and just smile because I am so happy! I have started writing my second book, and I already have four chapters written, but I have put it on hold for now until I get my package completely paid for so I can continue to write. I know I am going to have to block out some days to write because I work at night. I am going to have to find a quiet place to write. I want to write outside since Autumn is here, and Fall is right around the corner. I need to be where I can find inspiration in the beauty around me. I am still promoting my first book by myself without the help of my publishers. There is one who has been there for me since my book was published, and that’s my marketing consultant. He has never ignored a call, he always calls me back if he is busy when I call, and he gives me good advice. He told me that everything is going to fall into place in the time it is supposed to, and for me not to worry about anything. He always lifts me up and tells me how great I am, and how amazing I am. I need that kind of positivity spoken to me. I cannot wait to see the people who have been there for me through the whole process.

I chose this color because it is sunny and pretty. I like sunflowers because they make things so bright and warm at the same time. Well, until next time I will visit here again later, now that’s “What’s Up?” 9/25/22 @4:44 AM Sunday

What’s Up?”

How has your days of Winter been treating you? “What’s Up?”, Well,this year is almost over. It was as if it was just yesterday that 2022 was joining us, now it is time to say good-bye. As the snow comes and stays for a long time, a year comes and stays 365 days. What if a year was longer than 365 days? I wonder what it would be like. What would we all do to pass the time besides work, talk, and pass the time? When the snow comes, it stays as long as it wants to stay, and leaves when it’s time. Sometimes the sun shines in teh Winter, but it isn’t warm, it only gives light. Sometimes the sun shines, and it is warm, but lately it has been cold and rainy with a little wind blowing. No one knows what the Winter is going to bring with her until things starts happening. Sometimes the squirrels will be playing, the birds will be playing, but lately they have been having fun in my yard; that is always fun to see and enjoy. The smell of Winter is in the air. We know that everything is going to sleep until Spring. Just remember that Winter is beautiful too. So, until next year, “What’s Up?” 12/30/2022 Friday evening. L.A.
