  • Snow Spirits

    Friday, November 6th, 2015

    Deep sighs from the spirits of the trees are masked within the autumn commotion. Their tired solar panels, homes for critters and pleasing primary pennants, fall to the ground, browned and worn out. Spirit’s Winter Sabbath commences. Beaches lounge waiting for the weary wanderers to soak up the rays of the Always Summer Sun until […]

  • A-Ha!

    Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

    When’s the last time you experienced a true a-ha moment? Not, oh, that’s where those stupid keys have been, or this blouse has been hanging in my closet for ten years and I still can’t wear it. Guess it’s time for a trip to Goodwill. Those are recognizing that you don’t put your keys on […]

  • Three Summer ‘R’s’

    Friday, July 17th, 2015

      These summer months in Tennessee have brought family and friends to our home as they traveled from one place to another. South Carolina to Colorado. Texas to Vermont. Florida to Mississippi to Ohio to New York. Michigan to Ohio to Tennessee to Michigan. We’re in the perfect position to nab them as they travel […]

  • The Gift of a Birthday

    Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

    I’d like to share a photograph of the gift my husband and daughter presented to me for my birthday on the 24th of May, along with a poem I had written about the same subject: Building Eight at the Factory in Franklin Tennessee. It’s where God found us. Our church. Journey Church. We’d never gone […]

  • Sensing…

    Friday, April 3rd, 2015

      Last week our pastor challenged us to tap into our senses during Holy Week; the week before Easter.  I have listed the Senses and Suggestions he challenged us to achieve and also how Bossman and I did with that challenge.   Monday – Burn a candle or make a certain food that reminds you […]

  • Mr. Bill Jangles

    Thursday, September 11th, 2014

    A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself. Josh Billings, 19th Century humorist When Bill-The-Affenpinscher and his human mother, our daughter, moved in with us in February of 2007, he was incorrigible. His twelve pounds of incorrigibleness was filled with bites, barks, peeing, and consumption of socks, […]

  • Thanks for Listening

    Saturday, April 5th, 2014

                When you need to be distracted from life, what do you do? I prayed. I played casino games on FaceBook. I watched hockey while eating a gigantic bowl of ice cream. I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookie dough and froze a mess of little cookie balls. […]

  • Somedays You Need Extra Twinkle Lights

    Thursday, February 27th, 2014

    A busy week of work and play which is most times simultaneous. We prepared for our church small group or ‘village’ to those in the know, to be at the house, so there was the clearing of table tops, sanitizing the Billy spots and getting out the pans and pots to cook a mess of […]

  • Sharing Recipes

    Thursday, January 16th, 2014

    Cooking. Baking. Making. Eating. Sharing. I love all of that. Measuring. Pouring. Washing. Peeling. Chopping. Spoons – both wooden and metal. Glass bowls; big to small. Metal pans; rectangular, square, round. Pots and Lids. Hots and Colds. All of it. Recipes from books, magazines, the Internet, handwritten from friends and family. Sharing favorites. I’ve talked […]

  • If You’re Happy and You Know it…

    Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

    What makes you “happy”? With all the “Happy New Year” wishes for a better 2014, peace and harmony, losing the holiday pounds, abundant blessings and health being presented to us, I’ve been thinking about what makes us tick in the happiness department. For me, I felt extreme happiness last night when I took the dog […]
