~if we were having coffee~

If we were having coffee, we would be stuck at my house. Sorry. It has been one of THOSE weeks. As you noticed, my little mini-sharpei has had some surgery. Without explaining too far, just know she is doing well, but we are still awaiting results of two lumps that had to be removed. Nervous… Continue reading ~if we were having coffee~

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~

Looking up~

Seems to me that we are a species which is a bit unaware. I have watched people, at the beach, in the mall, out walking, or in the park…they look straight ahead, or downward. Sometimes, they even look at the person to whom they are speaking, although this is increasingly rare. For the most part,… Continue reading Looking up~

~If we were having coffee~

I love weekends! And especially when we get to sneak off, avoid the kids/husbands, and have coffee together! How has your week been? Did you get the writing goals done? Did you get that pesky character sketch fleshed out? Or did the character just need to die?!! Our morning here, outside the little coffee cafe… Continue reading ~If we were having coffee~

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~

Doing the dreaded thing~

It is almost time for me to stop my passion…for the next 18 hours. I have to close my journal, my work-in-progress writing, and my blog posts and return to my home office for my ‘other’ job. I have been quite the complainer on this demand of my free time and I hesitate to admit… Continue reading Doing the dreaded thing~

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~
