Shifting Gears…

Driving down the road earlier today, I began thinking about how cars are made. Planes too for that matter,  actually anything mechanical. I know that gears and motors that make a conveyance run are manufactured with a set of specifications, or tolerances. Meaning, each piece fits together with certain measurements that cannot be too far… Continue reading Shifting Gears…

Give it Time

I decided that my little blog deserved some pre-spring cleaning. Some spiffing up and new pillow covers on the chaise, if you will.  I worked on some new visuals to make it easier for folks to navigate and read the entries as they have time. Because goodness knows, if there is anything we do not… Continue reading Give it Time

Joy and strength…

Today was supposed to be a no-sugar day. Invited out to friends for supper and, poof, there in front of me were chocolate chunks of cake for dessert.

It was a somewhat cloudy but pleasant day and I came away with some lovely clippings that are now gracing my dining room table. Yesterday evening was not an easy one.… Continue reading Joy and a blankie….

Wednesday on the way…

In coming close in to the natural world earlier today, I found myself drawn up into a trail that was only partially visible in and amongst the fallen leaves. But the quiet and lovely solitude beckoned and I couldn't resist the opportunity to become a part of the scene. It was a challenge to complete… Continue reading Wednesday on the way…

Sun-Day Blooms

My garden flowers are starting to show signs of wear from the colder temperatures. Less sunlight and warmth means less vibrant blooms for some, and a downright gloomy winter dormancy disposition for others. Yet a couple seem pretty hardy despite cloudy skies and driving rains. So, considering the conditions or circumstances that I have little… Continue reading Sun-Day Blooms
