What caught my eye in the past month

A Beautiful Mess  has a house tour that I found bright with pops of colour.  Actually I thought it looked like a happy … Continue reading What caught my eye in the past month

Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SOCS

It has been ages since I participated in stream of consciousness Saturday.  Where we are giving a prompt and just write.  For all the details head over to Linda G Hill.  This week's prompt is the word "shade." My first thought when I saw the word shade was something a co-worker and I just experienced.  You know … Continue reading Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SOCS

Just what I needed to hear

I'm sure we have all been there.  Ruminating over things not under our control.  Giving away our power and our time to someone, something, whatever, that doesn't care or we can't change no matter what is said or actions we do. I've had a few of situations come up this week. Wham right on top … Continue reading Just what I needed to hear

I’m having a staycation! What to do? Lots!

I enjoy travel. Seeing new places, having new experiences. There is a whole world out there for me to explore.  The question is where to start. My travel experiences usually start with a discussion of where we want to go.  Any similar bucket list places.  So far there always is. After that it is planning.  … Continue reading I’m having a staycation! What to do? Lots!

What caught my eye in the past month

I can't believe I'm posting what caught my eye and it is November.  I imagine this month and next holiday posts will be catching my eye and hopefully giving me ideas.  November for me is National Novel Writing Month.  It gives me focus and I feel a part of a writing community. It helps we have … Continue reading What caught my eye in the past month

This is not a craft blog – just saying

Again this is NOT a craft blog.  That said I do enjoy doing things with my hands.  From painting, knitting to using a glue gun on pretty well anything.  For me it is often when I am in the moment more than at any other time.  It helps that I enjoy the journey of creating … Continue reading This is not a craft blog – just saying

What I love this season of my life

I made Canada Thanksgiving dinner this year.   In the past I have had dinner with family, but this year was different.  I bought a veggie produce box as a school fundraiser.  It was the perfect time to use my veggies up and celebrate with friends. Believe it or not this does lead to what I … Continue reading What I love this season of my life

So I know it is fall and winter is approaching.  Below is what caught up eye recently.  Hope something catches yours. Head over to A beautiful mess to see … Continue reading What caught my eye in the past month

Weekend Coffee Share

Happy October! I decided to start the month with #weekend coffee share. Head over to get all the details and maybe join in! It has been a mixed emotional week.  A neighbor is moving into assisted living so purging and packing.  I’ve been helping when I can and getting to know her better through memories … Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share

What’s happening this Fall

Fall (or September to December) is my favorite time of year.  It feels more like the first of the year for me. I guess that is because school starts.  I find I have more energy in the Fall and excitement about possibilities.  This Fall in particular I have said YES to things.  Here are a … Continue reading What’s happening this Fall
