Happy Easter

The weather is amazing today. The family is somewhat together in one place, but for the few that aren’t here that’s why we have phones. Overall a very pleasant day here. I hope you all are having an equally nice day.


  We have a lot of trees out here that have personalities. Wait, before you think I’ve gone and lost my mind, just hear me out. There are places around here where it almost looks like the trees were here before the buildings went up. Those old trees are often knotted and gnarled from time. […]

Is this really Friday?

Because honestly I’ve been running around so much today that it feels like I’ve been up for days. My day started at 5 AM with me trying to make it to the bus on time. My dogs made that almost impossible. Still I had a purpose to get up this morning and get moving, which […]

Amen, sister

  I’ve always liked the night. I’d stay up late even as a kid. My mind would race with fancy thoughts of monsters and things that go bump in the night. I wasn’t afraid. It was more like I was inquisitive. There were also thoughts about my neighbors who acted one way during the day […]

Monday…ugh. Elton John was right in his quote: “But, you know those three words—I need help. If only I’d said it earlier.” I hate being sick because there are times I feel like I need to ask for help. Or the fact I have admit I can’t do something on my own when I’m having […]

Dazed and Confused

Okay, I will be the first to say that I’m slightly ditzy and even describe myself as having one of those “blonde moments” when I do something totally off, but today was rough. I’m not sure why I feel like I crawled out of some hole without my brain. I’m hoping it’s not some cold […]

Spring Storm

  “Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” –Robert H. Schuller  It’s been a few years since we’ve had a good […]

A very busy Friday

Let’s see…started off my day with the DMV. Then lunch with friends and a movie with another. To finish the day, my kid and I made buckeyes. I had to taste test them. I think the girl wanted to make them to prove to some boy she could make a dessert. And now, I’m off […]
