Love and Light

Today is her birthday and she turned 21. She’s not here though. She’s in England. It’s an odd feeling for both of us. We were texting the other night about her turning 21, and she said, “I wish I were five.” Well, my darling.… Continue Reading “Love and Light”

On My Own

My daughter is out of town this week. I’m trying to take care of myself without her. She’s in charge of protein shakes, and I’m coffee. This morning I had to make the protein shake by using the Ninja, on my own. The Ninja… Continue Reading “On My Own”

Moment For One

We’ve enjoyed cool mornings this week in Texas. The front door is open so the screen door is being enjoyed. As I look around the house, I see things that need to be done. The floor is so dirty thanks to the doggos, but… Continue Reading “Moment For One”

That is Enough

I was thinking about her comment while making the morning Chemex. It was in response to this meme I posted for SC Lourie. She was having a hard time being a single Mom, but what stuck with me the most was, “I feel like… Continue Reading “That is Enough”

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”

The Fire Pit

To step outside and smell a fireplace going or a wood pile being burned. It’s a cozy smell this time of year. In the post, Be at Home it was mentioned our house doesn’t have a fireplace, so I bought an electric one. That’s… Continue Reading “The Fire Pit”

It’s Been Fun

A little role reversal occurs as they get older. My daughter said, “I want you to eat this weekend and that doesn’t mean only coffee.” 🙂 This morning, my daughter and I were laughing at some of our moments over the past six years.… Continue Reading “It’s Been Fun”

Weekends Are Sacred

My weekend begins at 5:01 on Friday’s. That is when my phone shuts down until Monday. I have two jobs as a Virtual Assistant and one is on the weekends, but I’ve had that job for 7 years. It began as my way of… Continue Reading “Weekends Are Sacred”
