A Lightbulb Moment

I know you are thinking, “Barb’s going to share some profound wisdom with us here.” Unfortunately lovely, I’ve actually been wrestling with a lightbulb. For longer than a moment. It’s been weeks. Obviously, I don’t give up easily, but I learned something from this lightbulb. I’m really good with change, if it’s a change I… Continue reading A Lightbulb Moment

The Easy Road

Another one of my new favorite things is how our cat drinks water. He just started doing this and it’s looks so difficult, but he does live in this house and we don’t do things the easy way. Our big dog, Denver, has two metal bowls in a stand so they’re off the ground. You… Continue reading The Easy Road

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… Continue reading Do Hard Things

My Front Yard

They wouldn’t stay off the feeder and wound up destroying one of them. Fast forward to today, I feed the squirrels. I pour the feed right on… Continue reading My Front Yard

It Pays to Wait

My daughter liked it too, but when I asked her if I should buy it she said, “You like to… Continue reading It Pays to Wait

Thank you for the love and care on my previous post. I was struggling to find my happy again. A friend… Continue reading There Is Happiness

Unleash Some Inspiration

I gave my Gmail a deep cleaning. Once I took care of the pile of email, I saw 12 Blog posts ideas sitting there. You see my darling, I write from the heart. When I feel inspiration come from within, I take the appropriate pictures, or download the meme and send it to myself. They… Continue reading Unleash Some Inspiration

God Has Better in Store

I love the way life is our teacher. We can learn so much by paying attention. I noticed the birds hadn’t used the bird feeder in a while. The feeder was introduced in the post It Took Years. It’s a beautiful feeder, but it’s been a battle with the squirrels. They could easily pop open… Continue reading God Has Better in Store
