During the Texas snow/ice storm, I saw a post on Facebook that made me smile. It was a photo of a front yard covered in tree branches, and said, “It’s raining firewood.” I needed to see that because the most unnerving part of that week for me was the location of our home. The house… Continue reading Firewood
I’ve been using the pour over coffee dripper for my coffee each morning for a while now. It offers flexibility in cup size, and on Monday we go big. It will fill any size cup you choose to sit under it. You just have to measure the right amount of water for the size of… Continue reading Crossing the Line
I’ve been thinking about this, and had a vision I’d like to share. It took some thought and planning ahead, but it’s well worth every effort. The first thing I saw to do was to scrub the beach rug clean. It’s odd, but in January hundreds of birds fly overhead all day long dropping red… Continue reading A Beautiful Morning
When I first started this Blog, I could sit and write for hours and post daily. That has mellowed over time. I enjoy my pieces of life that don’t require Internet. The dogs know my favorite time to write is around 9:00 am, and they become very still and quiet. It’s like they are giving… Continue reading The Sunny Spot
Barb has a very good life, but she’s pondering what it takes to go from good to great.

Jesus Calling-1/26/2021 I’ve had 5 days that feel like Monday with a… Continue reading Let Love Be Loud
The watch went back into it’s original box. The ginormous clock was removed from the bedroom wall and moved to the breezeway. I can still see it from the bedroom, so it will continue to be enjoyed, but it’s out of my room, and there’s no more ticking sound. I want to stop watching time.… Continue reading Take Some Time
In this guest post written by Collette, she shares how life is not made in big moments, or bold pronouncements, but in the small, daily moments.
My friend who I meet for coffee once a month gave me a beautiful mug. It’s a travel mug, which I didn’t have. I usually drink my coffee before leaving the house, so it’s rather liberating knowing my coffee can now travel. The box has been sitting on the coffee bar, and it’s just as… Continue reading To Stay Planted
All this talk about the draft folder is really just the tip of the iceberg. I left out the part about all the emails I’ve sent to myself with pictures attached. Looking through some of them lastnight I noticed there’s an additional folder entitled ‘Blog Ideas’, chocked full from 2019. Let’s not forget the journals… Continue reading In Real Time
