On My Own

My daughter is out of town this week. I’m trying to take care of myself without her. She’s in charge of protein shakes, and I’m coffee. This morning I had to make the protein shake by using the Ninja, on my own. The Ninja blender is the best blender I’ve ever used. You could drop […]

Google Can’t Laugh

I bought the most obnoxious wreath. I had to warn my daughter that my crazy was unleashed and sent her this picture. She’s in England and I was going to let it surprise her when she walked up to the front door, but couldn’t resist sharing it. Today, I’m not sure when she’s coming home. […]

Rise Above It

My daughter is in England. She messaged me this morning, “We are on the coach heading to Manchester!” I said, “Are the horses pretty pulling the coach?” 😂 I appreciate all of your suggestions for Name This Meeting, but I’ve placed it back in drafts. That’s not how it’s done. The name of the meeting […]

The Water Bottle

She drove to the store to pick up a few things. I had written ‘Hydrangeas’ on the list, but she spotted daffodils and instinctively knew which to buy. Daffodils are displayed on the table. I have this thing about pretty water. When I see a pretty bottle of water, I purchase a couple. One for […]

Maybe You’ve Changed

My daughter made my Chemex this morning. She was getting ready to leave for classes, but paused long enough to do that. That’s true love. She stayed home this weekend, so I didn’t make weekend plans. I just wanted to hang out with her in that weekend vibe. Life has her on a rapid schedule […]

Like, the ginormous bag of cotton balls we purchased, just because it’s the biggest bag we’ve ever seen. (pillow size) We can always use cotton balls. […]

It Was Time

“Do you want a new Christmas stocking?”, she asked. I hadn’t thought about it till that moment. I haven’t had a new Christmas stocking since the divorce. The one I brought with me is laying in a box of unused Christmas items. These items that at one time, we enjoyed having, but they no longer […]

Life is Complete

I saw a paper tree with lights for our coffee bar. The display was magical at the store, but once I got it home and on the bar, I didn’t like it. I gave it some time to see if it would grow on me. There’s so many shiny things that get my attention this […]

Drink the Glitter

“There’s so much glitter”, she said. “I’ll take that one”, was my response. “No, it’s okay. I’ll just drink the glitter!” This is a normal conversation between my daughter and me. This is also the second time this week she’s made a cup of tea, only to find glitter floating in it. The glitter is […]

The Fire Pit

To step outside and smell a fireplace going or a wood pile being burned. It’s a cozy smell this time of year. In the post, Be at Home it was mentioned our house doesn’t have a fireplace, so I bought an electric one. That’s a wonderful option for inside, but it doesn’t have that real […]
