So, another Christmas is upon us. I can’t believe this past year flew by like it did, but it did! The weather is trying to get cold enough to snow so I have my fingers crossed and my prayers flying heavenward for snow again this year. Our lovely black Christmas tree, in its second year, was..

I can’t say I have my site back up to speed since I haven’t done anything with it since changing out domain companies. I still have 8 months left on my old website builder plan so have time to play. With that note, I am not going to be serious today, I’m going to show..
I’m going to change things up a wee bit today. Several things happened recently that filled me with such gratitude, love, and just an all ’round joy at being alive, living in this time, and living the life I am living. I plan to do this every once in a while from now on. It..
Click on most pictures to enlarge if you want. So my dad died in 2004. It was sudden and unexpected. I was on vacation and couldn’t get back before he moved on to heaven. I am always grateful the last things we said to one another were things like “Love you” and we had hugged..

The automatic music Playlist is back. If you don’t want to hear the music, go to the right-hand sidebar and pause or stop. I’ve been enjoying my hiatus and am planning to do some cleaning up of the website before I come back. In the meantime I thought I’d share some more fave things. It’s..
It is a tough time when you draw a blank when it comes time to post. I’ve been so caught up in the house addition and remodel, AND most especially in ZEN-ING my house, that I haven’t had time for much thinking. Yes, you read that right – zen-ing. Making my home zen-like. Instead of this:..
Hello goils! I’m baaaack. Didja miss me? I missed you… for awhile. Today’s post will be quick, just a check-in to say ‘yes, I am alive’ and ‘yes, there were some incredible lessons and changes’. In later posts, I’ll let you know the really good, the morbidly bad, and the monstrously ugly of unhooking..
