Nothing Loved is Ever Lost

2020 has sucked. It has really sucked. I lost my mom in June. Lost my mother in-law in September. And lost Miss Kitty, who was 20 years young, this week. “The earth will never be the same againRock, water, tree, iron, share this greifAs distant stars participate in the pain.

Whoa Monday

This is not the post I had in mind for today but it's Monday so . . . I overslept. I woke up to husband having video conference with his work colleagues at the kitchen table. (He's been working from home since the Mid-March covid virus outbreak.) This meant I had to make my power... Continue Reading →

On Writing

Writers make writing look so easy.  Is writing as difficult for them as it is me?  I'm certainly not an avid writer but I do write: journals, letters, notes, lists.  I seem to be more of a lister than a writer.  I have many lists of things I want to write about.  The problem is...

Happy New Year!

I don’t know if it was just me or what but this holiday season seemed to fly by so quickly. I think father time is anxious to start a new decade! From our house to yours, Happy New Year!

Between Seasons

It seems as if just yesterday was early fall. Leaves changing from summer green to magnificent shades of red, yellow and orange then falling to the ground. As November came to a close, families gathered. A time to be thankful and overeat. The next season is upon us. Christmas and winter hard to ignore. Bare... Continue Reading →
