The Sunny Spot

When I first started this Blog, I could sit and write for hours and post daily. That has mellowed over time. I enjoy my pieces of life that don’t require Internet. The dogs know my favorite time to write is around 9:00 am, and they become very still and quiet. It’s like they are giving… Continue reading The Sunny Spot

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

He’s Always Watching

It’s the weekend, but I’m in full work mode. I used to think waking up at the crack of dawn on a weekend was horrid, but by 9:30 am, I had showered, dressed, and completed most of my work. For a little while anyways. I decided to go to the hardware store for a change… Continue reading He’s Always Watching

The Care List

The tag was attached to a new pair of jeans. It wasn’t noticeable the day of purchase, but it spoke up weeks later as I slipped them on. Is it really referring to denim? To finish this year victoriously, we gotta keep it slow and steady. As the busiest time of year approaches, be aware… Continue reading The Care List

There Is Happiness

Writing is happiness. I’m not sure if it brings it in, or if I have so much happiness, it’s a form of release. Sloth’s and candles are happiness. Being here with you is happiness. 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

Worth Every Minute

This sign hangs in between my bedroom windows. It’s one of the first things I see each morning and sometimes I’ll walk in and look at it throughout the day as a gentle reminder. Trust the magic of beginnings. My daughter has this sign sitting in between her windows. Yes, I love signs and it… Continue reading Worth Every Minute

Save the Lizard

It was a long seven minutes waiting for the French press of coffee to be at it’s peak this morning. I normally set a timer for it, but instead just periodically glanced at the clock. While I was waiting, our younger dog Winnie, began playing with something on the floor. We’ve had a baby lizard… Continue reading Save the Lizard

Rooted in Real

After I Bled Out, a shift happened, and I wanted real. I’ve been a part of and seen the effects social media has on well-being. It wasn’t healthy for me, so I stepped away, and have no desire to go back. This Blog hasn’t been connected to any social media for weeks, but people are… Continue reading Rooted in Real

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
