Watching the Sunrise

My zen is waking up early, before the day begins. When it’s still dark outside, but to do that, I go to sleep early. That was the scenario lastnight. By 9:00 pm, my daughter and I were getting sleepy. She chuckled and asked, “Is it too early to go to bed?” By 9:30, we were… Continue reading Watching the Sunrise

Transitioning to Organic

A friend made a comment about the Food for One post. She said, “Buying all organic is expensive!” I used to think so too, so what happened? Just like every form of change, it took baby steps in the right direction. The first time we bought Tillamook cheese. My daughter and I were standing in an… Continue reading Transitioning to Organic

It’s Pretty Ugly

I took a friend to meet Stephanie today. You may or may not recall but, Stephanie is who gave me the courage to care for plants. Everyone needs a Stephanie in their life. Getting out of my truck, this caught my eye. It has been hanging there for some time, and I have walked by… Continue reading It’s Pretty Ugly

You are Good

I went down to the corner store this morning, and was greeted by my friend behind the counter. We love one another like good friends do, even though I just met him a couple of years ago. He is a real life superhero in my book. I don’t know his story, only what I’ve seen.… Continue reading You are Good

To Feel Him

I have done a lot of things that make me look like an idiot. Probably one of my all time favorites was when I would praise and worship God on a pier. I woke up this morning, snagged a cup of Joe, and stepped outside. I love to stand on my front porch, feel the… Continue reading To Feel Him

Feel the Music

I hear this song almost every time I get into my truck. This is the Acoustic version, so it will sound a little different than what you hear on the radio. This has been in my draft folder all week, but I feel led to share it now. It reminds me when I am too… Continue reading Feel the Music

Go With the Flow

We live in a 1940’s Farmhouse, and the tub has the original lever built in that closes the drain. It also has a manual stopper that you press down to stop the water from leaving. After my dog was bathed, I unplugged the stopper from the drain, but it didn’t drain. We’ve had a lot… Continue reading Go With the Flow

A Metal Rooster

Maybe you don’t know of my love for chickens. This time of year farm supply stores have an abundance of baby chicks, bunnies, and ducks for Easter. The children love them, and my daughter was no different. The first time we stepped inside a farm supply store, she was 5 years old. Seeing all the… Continue reading A Metal Rooster

Circle of Healing

My daughter, and I went to the Fourth of July celebration lastnight, in our tiny town. It was quaint, and sweet. It was enough walking through town, and soaking up the stares from strangers. My daughter, as you know is stunning, and today, so am I. She tied a flag scarf around my bald head,… Continue reading Circle of Healing

For My Daughter

I woke  up very early this morning with a mind full of my daughter. She is sleeping in her room across the hall, but since this Blog began with her in mind, here’s one for you. You have watched me your whole life and know my every mood. When you were around 12 years old,… Continue reading For My Daughter
