To Stay Planted

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

The Basil Plant

As mentioned in my previous post, the seasons are changing and some of my favorite things will go away till Spring. I’ve killed two Basil plants this year, but that didn’t deter me from buying one more. I’m not quite ready to let go and not make pesto. Almost every market I’ve walked into has… Continue reading The Basil Plant

To Stay Stopped

I had a surprise visit from a neighbor. I was vacuuming up dog hair and didn’t hear the knock on the door at first. I opened it to find my friend and her young son standing on the porch. Her little boy was holding a giant chocolate bar. He raised it up toward me as… Continue reading To Stay Stopped

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

As I walked by the boutique window I saw this bag sitting atop a shelf. It was so simple yet magical. I felt that familiar shift of perspective. Would it affect others similarly? I walked in and purchased the bag. It sits on top of the fridge as a dual reminder. One, for what it… Continue reading In the Bag

Let them Unload

Listening is an act of kindness. Sometimes my acts of kindness are intentional. I really have to stop and think, “What can I do today to extend kindness?” Who knew it takes thought!? I was out running errands yesterday, and I felt led to stop by the pizza place. I knew Boss man would be… Continue reading Let them Unload

To Be Kind

I’ve been reading about being kind. That may sound silly, but I want to go beyond nice, and be consistently kind. We can be nice, but that can be turned on and off. To be kind is deciding to do more. To be thoughtful and give from our hearts. A Side-step I’m beginning to believe… Continue reading To Be Kind

That’s True Love

My daughter will be gone most of the day. She makes a Chemex, because she has it down to a science, whereas I do not. I sit in the den anticipating that magical cup of brew. This morning she did something so special. She has this coffee cup she knows I love. It’s just the… Continue reading That’s True Love

A Better Way To Live~Day 10

As you have probably noticed from previous Blogs…I love Steve Jobs. His life here on this earth was cut short, but oh what a legacy he left behind! Where would we be today without this guy? Probably not typing on this laptop. Are you ready for Day 10? It’s a mind bender. Beginning today, treat… Continue reading A Better Way To Live~Day 10
