What caught my eye – favorites from the past month

Hard to wrap my head around that we are now into the second month of 2019.  I'm not someone who wishes winter away - as living in Canada that would be half my life. So I enjoy more nesting and getting together with friends in cafes and pubs.  Here is what caught my eye in … Continue reading What caught my eye – favorites from the past month

My alphabet year !

I've been very fortunate in my life to meet great people at the bus stop.  Some are “bus stop friends” where we catch up at the bus stop or sitting on the bus on the way home.  Others I can now call friends away from the bus stop. We know each other’s birthdays. We celebrate … Continue reading My alphabet year !

Simple things – Scarf, Table and Runner

I was cleaning out a drawer and off to the side were scarves.  They got dumped on the floor to be sorted with the sweaters and t-shirts.  While I was folding them I thought pretty colors. It is a shame I don't use them.  Hmmm.... That thought lead me to the dining room table and … Continue reading Simple things – Scarf, Table and Runner

What do you know about the Harvard Classics?

Last year a friend had the hard job of moving her mom to a long-term care  facility and her father to a small apartment. Two  homes to scale down a life-time of items. Her mom kept newspaper clippers of anything she thought her children would be interested in. So it was a walk down memory … Continue reading What do you know about the Harvard Classics?

A year of challenges – this month self-care

I’ve been thinking about posts for 2019.  I’m seeing challenges on various blogs from no shopping, more reading and less eating variety.  I’m not someone who likes to set a total ban on my activities.  So I’m going to challenge myself and hopefully you to something different. A monthly challenge broken down weekly.  I’ll report … Continue reading A year of challenges – this month self-care

Weekly journaling – week 52

I can't believe I am on the last week of my year-long creative calendar.  Some prompts were easy, some made me think and question and others were just plan hard. A few I was unsure whether or not I even wanted to share. Hope you enjoyed the year of prompts. I knew as soon as … Continue reading Weekly journaling – week 52

And the year begins…….

If you follow along you know in a recent post 2019 intentions  I am antsy about the coming year and the year after that.  I started my 2019 intentions last week. When I headed to a coffee shop with a new journal and a chocolate croissant. Coffee shop known for their croissants. Just saying. I started … Continue reading And the year begins…….

Weekly journaling – week 51

Dec 17   Nicknames and pet names I've been called.  My name isn't one that I thought could be shortened.  It is two syllables.  It wasn't until I was working that co-workers actually found a way to lob off the last syllable.  Well done ladies. Dec 18   The fictional character I most relate to. I'm not … Continue reading Weekly journaling – week 51
