Summer is typically a time for informal get togethers of all sorts. Whether you are headed to the beach, or your favorite trailhead, it’s a time to come out from hibernation and get a little fresh air. Some will see the shining orb and, much like the groundhog in February, scurry into a movie theatre … Continue reading All in the family
Yes. It’s been awhile. No, nothing’s wrong. I guess the summer has just been a bit crazy and I have been letting my schedule run me around, and with my focus on dealing with my food and emotional issues, it has kind of taken it out of me. Some interesting news, however, I am singing … Continue reading Hellooo….
Sunday morning. Had 2 grandsons over last night and all went relatively smoothly, considering they are still pretty small (3 and 6) and aren’t much interested in much except watching superhero cartoons and talking about super hero cartoons. Their parents have since collected them, and I am waiting for my lunch to cool down. My … Continue reading Dealin’ with the feelins 😏
Driving around today while I did errands, much like I always do, I saw a number of people standing on different corners, with makeshift signs, looking for money or other types of resources. I tend to be a giver toward specific programs, unless God urges me to give to a specific person at that moment. … Continue reading Food for Thought
As my new chapter in my recovery journey has been unfolding, I have been challenged to keep up on all that my life is about. Mostly feeling a nagging sense that my writing is being neglected.

Lately, the daily grind (beyond the coffee in my counter-top espresso machine) has been … Continue reading Checking in…
I have been engaging my recovery at ground level lately, which hasn’t left a whole lot of time for reflection and blogging. It’s just been where things are at lately, and I know that as I push through the slog, more things will appear and be ready for digestible dissemination. There have been several frustrating … Continue reading The Struggle
Funny. No, not ha-ha funny, just funny. This isn’t an entry I wanted to write. Maybe you know the feeling though. You have your head down, you are stretching, reaching, working hard, yet feeling miserable, but convinced you can hold on. Then you talk to someone who is bubbling over with excitement about how the … Continue reading What gives? Gratitude. 🌸
Ah, nothing I love more than water and sunshine. Hanging out with family in the water in the sun and I am in a happy space. Last night, cleaning up for bed, I found out that there can be too much of a good thing as I felt the effects of too much sun and … Continue reading Water and Sunshine
So, it’s been several days since I’ve written anything, beyond work stuff. I have felt pretty inundated there, and finally tonight I am coming up for air. I have also decided to start being a bit more intentional about my food. This has caused me to be a little more edgy. Fun times. Found myself … Continue reading With Love, a new Journey.
