It was another warm day. And I enjoyed going to the gym, and got to see some more of my favorite small people. So many of my friends and acquaintances are very spun up about recent events. Even my grandson was upset and looking to his mom for answers about what will happen in his… Continue reading And….breathe…

Weekend WarrioršŸ’Ÿ

Yesterday was a family day of sorts. I got to spend time with some of my favorite small people, and then see a movie with the spouse. Not much time for house chores, though I did pull together a healthy beef stew that was gluten free and enough to feed the crew, along with some… Continue reading Weekend WarrioršŸ’Ÿ

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

Monday’s choice…

It was a rainy and cold day. The rain was a bit sporadic. And I bounded out of bed with purpose, after having spent the night trying to figure out why I was so discontented. Usually, when we are discontented with something in our lives, it speaks to something that is wrong or discordant inside… Continue reading Monday’s choice…

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
