Finding That Balance

For brunch, I chose a different chair to sit in at the dining room table. One I don’t normally use. Still disrupting patterns. This dining room chair offered a spectacular view of the front yard. A warm breeze was blowing, and I noticed the… Continue Reading “Finding That Balance”

The Water Bottle

She drove to the store to pick up a few things. I had written ‘Hydrangeas’ on the list, but she spotted daffodils and instinctively knew which to buy. Daffodils are displayed on the table. I have this thing about pretty water. When I see… Continue Reading “The Water Bottle”

Maybe You’ve Changed

My daughter made my Chemex this morning. She was getting ready to leave for classes, but paused long enough to do that. That’s true love. She stayed home this weekend, so I didn’t make weekend plans. I just wanted to hang out with her… Continue Reading “Maybe You’ve Changed”

Trust Your Crazy

I do some crazy looking stuff. Like molding butter to fit the butter dish. Yes, I have a Pioneer Woman Butter Dish, and it’s a little wide for one stick of butter to fill, so I buy a slab of butter. Let it get… Continue Reading “Trust Your Crazy”

Two of Everything

When my daughter and I first began living this life together, you could look around and see two of everything. The house has two bedrooms. There’s two overstuffed chairs in the den. Two blankets on a nearby shelf readily available. We created a life… Continue Reading “Two of Everything”

It Was Time

“Do you want a new Christmas stocking?”, she asked. I hadn’t thought about it till that moment. I haven’t had a new Christmas stocking since the divorce. The one I brought with me is laying in a box of unused Christmas items. These items… Continue Reading “It Was Time”

Just Be Sweet

There’s memes floating around this time of year about, ‘finishing the year strong.’ It’s tiresome being strong all the time and I want to finish the year more gently. I’m taking the rest of the year off from being strong. I’ve been told, “You… Continue Reading “Just Be Sweet”

Life is Complete

I saw a paper tree with lights for our coffee bar. The display was magical at the store, but once I got it home and on the bar, I didn’t like it. I gave it some time to see if it would grow on… Continue Reading “Life is Complete”
