Pondering~

It was one of those days…the kind that you mull through. When the day begins with less than a stellar start. Like when coffee runs all over your counter-top from the rather new, rather expensive machine that promised to behave. Lovely. Finding myself in a quandary…which bill to pay, which task to tackle, and always,… Continue reading Pondering~

Our weekend coffee~ the sage

If we were having coffee this weekend…I would brag about this sage tree…(Are they trees?). This one is and lives on my patio. It blooms periodically, actually quite frequently which surprises me. It serves two purposes..one it attracts bees (we know this is good!) and it serves to make me aware. See, I don’t know… Continue reading Our weekend coffee~ the sage

Landing Spot~

“There will be NO snakes!” The perpetually smiling realtor assured us from the covered lanai. “Um, are you positively SURE?”.  The words flew out of my mouth, even though I was trying hard to be upbeat and excited. We were shopping for a place to settle into for a year or more and having a… Continue reading Landing Spot~

If we were having coffee today, I would be grumpy. You see, I would be late to our appointment. If that weren’t enough of a grumble-maker, I would also be covered in white speckles, and blinking irrationally. Could be limping a bit as well…. Paint in the eyes, folks, because I refuse to wear those… Continue reading If we were having coffee~

Mornings on the Porch~

 Mornings in the summer….can there be anything better? oh, wait…perhaps, evenings in the summer might have to be considered in equal measure. Here in my part of the Rockies, we are finally seeing high 80’s in our days, still often with a storm in the afternoon. It is a perfect arrangement for me. BECAUSE, this… Continue reading Mornings on the Porch~

Filling the bucket~

It is unfair to feel lonesome when the weather finally turns so flippin’ lovely. It does not help that my love of writing seems to have become absent in the desire bucket. It is dreadful when this happens, because then I get to add on that delightful bit of guilt to the already burdened soul. I… Continue reading Filling the bucket~

the bounty of hard work~

It was not my intention to go rather insane the past two weeks. But then, does anyone INTEND to go insane? even for a minute? Truth now: I can be rather obsessive when I focus too intently. On anything. Haircolor dismay? 15 boxes of various brands that all seem perfect, which never truly are. Going… Continue reading the bounty of hard work~
