Tuesday calm

Ahhhh......a bit of a respite from the day to day. I am enjoying a little bit of space and time and the weather has cleared a bit. Love the fact it isn't raining and we were able to go on a walk. A refrain has been rolling through my head for a couple days..."...the wind… Continue reading Tuesday calm

Love is the easy part…

Today the rain held off a bit, and I was able to run about getting some things accomplished. From our earliest beginnings, we are taught to love and trust our families, friends, those who care for us and others that are important in our lives. We are also instructed to respect our elders. Sometimes this… Continue reading Love is the easy part…

Sugarless Tuesday

Today was the perfect definition of a fall day. Blowing crisp leaves, partly sunny skies, temps in the upper 50's. It was a day to enjoy the outdoors so that's just what we did. Today was also a "no sugar" day. So not exactly a fun day, as I really want to enjoy a treat,… Continue reading Sugarless Tuesday

Sunday’s resolve

The sun is shining and someone hit a tree with their car near our house and took off, nearly killing the poor little fir. We hope it survives. Some days are just hard. You just come to a corner, and have to speak the truth, no matter how it sounds. And own the responsibility for… Continue reading Sunday’s resolve

Saturday with friends…

We had a beautiful morning and afternoon, but the rain soon returned, along with cooler temperatures. The ground is wet and sponge-y, and if the wind blows, it will push the trees out of the wet ground. I am hopeful things will dry out a bit before the rain really socks in again. I attended… Continue reading Saturday with friends…

Friday’s Goals

I was given some lovely cut flowers a couple weeks back, and looking at them today, I am starting to think they have come to the next stage in their life cycle...that is, to become compost for other living things. The evidence is there; crispy petals, wilted leaves, and a slight swampy odor. It makes… Continue reading Friday’s Goals

Ordinary Thursday

The beauty of the yellow and red leaves in our neighborhood is striking. I imagine the trees do not take precious time to compare themselves to the fir tree, or to the shrub to wonder why they must shed their fine coats for the winter. They just do, and wait for spring to build their… Continue reading Ordinary Thursday

Willingness and warmth

It has been mostly cloudy with some rain. Hardly any blooms left for me to bring in and put on my table to enjoy. ┬áThe sun does not shine on them long enough for them to really open properly, so my flowers stay closed up in tight little balls, waiting for enough warmth to open,… Continue reading Willingness and warmth

Screen Art

When I was a child, I would run my finger across the screen door when it was wet and observe how the water transferred from one square to the next. I loved to "draw" on the screen, using only the water and the screen to cast my temporary artwork for momentary enjoyment, only to have… Continue reading Screen Art

Calm before the storm

Enjoying the last of the sunny fall weather. Tomorrow a great storm is supposed to blow into town with all its beauty and fury, but it's not here yet. So I am enjoying the warmth in my hair and the breeze against my face. Snapping pictures of my colorful flowers while I can. I can't… Continue reading Calm before the storm
