A Dreamy Bed

My heart beats a little bit faster for a dreamy bed. My daughter was home over the weekend, and I wanted to let her catch up on some sleep. As I closed her bedroom door, this quote came to mind, and I remembered this photo on my vision board. The two combined became a meme. […]

Worth the View

A Blogger friend commented on the photo in A New View. When my daughter and I walked out of the newly built house mentioned in that post, she glanced my way, as if trying to read my thoughts. The house was nice enough, but the view was no better than where I am now. My […]

A New View

“I’m ready for something new”, was my first thought of the day. My daughter and I went for a walk yesterday, and saw a new house almost complete. We walked through, and everything was new. Sitting in my den early this morning, a prism hanging in the window was casting rainbows across the room. The […]

Enjoy the Good

I asked my daughter, “Have you noticed the coffee bar smells like coffee?” Walking by the bar, you can smell the various grinds from it’s frequent use. She introduced me to this roaster a month ago. I just love the name, ‘Hairbender’. She used it to make a Chemex for us to share. Once that […]

Do Hard Things

At 6:00 am I was sitting on the bathroom floor with a stressed out doggo. There was a tornado warning for our area. A couple of hours later, the sun is shining, and the birds are chirping. We are enjoying the breeze coming through the screen door, and that little dog that was pacing the […]

I cleaned off my desktop, and have only downloaded one new meme. I’m just enjoying the look of it, nice and clean with it’s Windows blue background. I don’t know who needs this today, but feel that someone does. At first sight, it covered me in peace, so I want to share. We’re barely into […]

Anything is Possible

I knew what I wanted, but wasn’t sure how to get it. Mama would say, “You won’t know until you ask.” I began calling and asking. I could see it as clear as day. A Bougainvillea hanging in front of the kitchen window. I spend a good bit of time at that window and wanted […]

All Of Us

To write what scares you. I have to say, I don’t do that, but am willing to try. The scariest thing for me is an intimate, one on one relationship, with a man. I haven’t been able to obtain a lasting one, so I stopped being open to that. It’s going to be up to […]

Feel the Music

I asked Google to tell me a joke. She said, “Why does the scarecrow keep being promoted? Because he’s outstanding in his field.” After that, I feel better about my jokes, and it made me think of this song. This is one of those country songs that makes my daughter cringe. She doesn’t care for […]
