Remembrance and gratitude…

Cloudy morning, but a little sunny too. Rain on the way is what's called for on the telly, but I won't be getting in a twist about it, not after the glorious week or two we've had of late. Besides, as the old proverb goes, all sun makes a desert. But sitting here, enjoying some… Continue reading Remembrance and gratitude…

Sunday gratitude ☺

Getting up this morning, I am encouraged that we might see a break in the rainy pattern of late, and that the day may be bright and sunny. I would love to see a few more flowers on my plants before the cold comes and I must mulch them under for protection from the winter… Continue reading Sunday gratitude ☺

Thursday chill

It was even colder today than it has been, and tonight the cold rain began in earnest. We're supposed to be getting a spell of wind, though it's a puff of air compared to the storms off the coast of Florida tonight. Much prayer and concern for those in the path of the hurricane. It… Continue reading Thursday chill

I don't feel ready for the seasons to turn again. But here we are, and pumpkin spice has wafted it's way into my house. Still no… Continue reading Tuesday’s Challenge

We pushed forward though,  knowing that we needed to make the distance and that it was likely the weather would improve,  which it did. Eventually, we did see partly sunny skies and dry roads to end the day. Sometimes, my recovery is like… Continue reading Friday and wet roads…

Stamp of approval

Some mornings I wake up and there is seriously not a thought in my head, other than coffee. Lots of coffee. Which is kind of funny these days as I have transitioned slowly over to mostly decaf due to caffeine causing some anxiousness during the day. But this morning, I woke up feeling like I… Continue reading Stamp of approval

51st post

So, we have now passed the 50th post on this blog. I should be thrilled. But this honestly has been a pooper of a day. I have been applying non-stop at jobs that I am (mostly) qualified for, some I am over-qualified for and I have gone out on a total of 2 interviews in… Continue reading 51st post
