So I was just hanging there like a side of beef….

Yes I was just hanging there like a side of beef waiting to be rescued. Wait I am getting ahead of myself.  Have to give you a little background first. Of my many talents one of them seems to be hanging around by a tether from high places.  Once I did it upside down.  Well […]

Buy The Coffee Ice Cream :)

  When my kids were still at home I catered to their food preferences.  One would only eat cheese pizza and  another only pepperoni.  We always had Mac n Cheese on hand and the kind jelly they preferred.  In their toddler years there was always one who cried because their food was touching other food […]

It’s Thoughtful Thursday! The Easy Way to Bring Joy to Yourself and Others

When was the last time you received a handwritten letter or note?  Bet it has been awhile. I love receiving unexpected notes or letters .  Even if I know everything that is going on in that persons life  it is always good to see familiar handwriting in my mailbox. You can bet it is the […]

Interruptions on the Run…

Someone very wise once told me that it is the spaces between the notes that truly makes the music.  I wonder if that holds true for interruptions on the run.  I don’t think so ..insert eye roll. Way back when in 2017 I was on a serious running kick.  I was starting out with a […]

It’s Thoughtful Thursday…thankful for the mess

I need some humor today and maybe you do as well so thought I would share a little family secret I discovered while cleaning out the garage last summer. Every summer we clean out the garage at least once or twice.  And EVERY time we find time to do it is on the hottest day […]

A little crazy yes but this “new” writing tool is awesome!

Before you think I have totally lost it read the whole post and then you will “get it”! So one of the things my husband and I love to do is go to auctions.  Sometimes we buy stuff sometimes we don’t but it’s usually a good time and we see some interesting things.  I go […]

So what do I do??

I imagined this scene the other day where I was at a dinner party and someone asked me ” So what do you do?” In my somewhat twisted mind that is a bit of a loaded question. I could answer everything from “well I walk my dog everyday”  to “I’m a nurse” to  ( if I […]
