Embracing Intention~

Life blows along with various degrees of wind force. There are days of gentle breezes, days of stillness and then there are those days. Those filled with hurricane intensity. The steadiness factor is always a crap-shoot. I am an emotional being, and by that, I mean I truly let my emotions rule me. It is… Continue reading Embracing Intention~

Morning Magic~

Mornings are for two things: Coffee and Writing. It has been this way for years, although life sometimes upends the rhythm which creates a sense of imbalance. Life~sigh. It could be an emergency or being simply the sounding board for one chatty (though sweet) husband. Either extreme or anything in between, can send my nerves… Continue reading Morning Magic~

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~

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~
