Labor Day passed, launching the start of the holiday season! At least that’s how I perceive it each September. Halloween, my favorite, came and left quickly. But really, it’s on it’s way again, in just 10 1/2 months! Thanksgiving was quiet in my house. Although I am truly thankful for ALL the blessings in my… Continue reading What’s important for your holidays?
June is rolling by quickly! I’ve finally had time to take a breath and write a blog! As I write and delete what I want to say, my mind is racing all over the place. There is so much to say about Pride Month I don’t know where to begin and keep it short. After… Continue reading JUNE. AKA, PRIDE MONTH
We all have moments in time that we can pull from our memories instantly. Those moments of extreme emotions that range from pure joy, to devastating loss. I bought a sign a few years ago that reads, ‘We remember moments, not days.’ It’s a common sign at gift shops and online as well. We say… Continue reading A Moment in Time
The calendar claimed spring started on March 20th. Granted, we’ve had a couple of nice warm days. However, I’ve walked through snow flurries the last two days! My one random little purple crocus is blooming in the front yard, but laying on its side, as if to hide from the wind and cold. Birds are… Continue reading But is it REALLY Spring?

I’m told they’re around all winter, but I rarely see them. The current situation in the Ukraine and Russia is throwing yet… Continue reading New Horizons
What’s the difference between practical vs. impractical? I hear talk about that a lot. There’s common things, for instance, don’t drive on the roads during a blizzard. Or wearing sunscreen on a hot day. Don’t spit into the wind! But what about other things? Things, events, or situations we put ourselves in. What’s practical and… Continue reading Practical vs. Impractical. Judging vs. Let It Be.
January. The let down month after all the holidays! It’s always a long month, filled with cold, wind and the dreariness of mid west winter. However, it always passes into February with Ground Hog’s Day, Valentine’s Day and before you know it Mardi Gras and Lent for those that celebrate it. I hope the holiday… Continue reading January Blues, or is it January Bright Skies?
Well, here we are. December 2021. What’s changed since last year? A lot I think. Time has passed, we’ve all become a year older. Children have grown and seen the effects of Covid on their young lives. Wearing a mask to school is normal for them. It’s a very different world for the young children.… Continue reading Golden Opportunities
Here we are in the middle of August already! School started this week around here and it’s had me thinking about writing a new book! Currently I have two fictional stories I’ve been working on, off and on for awhile now, but they’re not really keeping my attention. The stories are fun to write and… Continue reading New book thoughts.
