Discovering fun on Thoughtful Thursday!

I know I know!  Whenever I promote snail mail I just know there are people out there ( mostly younger than myself) who are just rolling their eyes at the thought of sitting down, writing a note, finding an address and a stamp and actually mailing it. Just send a text or an email..so much […]

It’s Thoughtful Thursday “Dear Miss Kline”

Happy Thursday or whatever day you happen to be reading this 🙂 I was recently reminded by a dear friend how important and how much joy the concept of Thoughtful Thursday brings to alot of people. I had let it go for a bit due to well… life in general, moving etc but it is […]

Why does this always happen??

In case you haven’t noticed I have been a little MIA here on my site.  No posts for nearly a month! I know you missed me 🙂 Well I’m back at it and like many writers I am always looking for inspiration. I was about to drive for an hour or two so I turned […]

Can I crochet a new washing machine?

Well can I crochet a new washing machine? Um that would be a no but it made for a good title and  I could not figure out how to title this so there you go. Plus it made me laugh so it was a twofer. We moved into our new home almost 8 months ago. […]

I like it better when you write funny pieces…..

“I like it better when you write funny pieces” I’ve heard this several times lately and I agree.  I prefer to write things that make me smile. Humorous everyday life things that everyone can relate to and chuckle. One of my most faithful readers is my hubby, Paul.  I appreciate his insight although we read […]

You Matter! Your words matter! Perserverance pays off!

The life of a writer, like any other profession is a roller coaster of emotions. Often we write from a vulerable place within us.  We put the words on paper, online in a blog post or social media and hope that in some small way our words add to the lives of those reading the […]

The Dog ate my Taxes

The newest version of our dog ate my homework. Paul and I (mostly Paul) had the dubious honor of shredding over 30 years of my fathers financial papers and other records. Oh the things we found.  🙂 My Dad was a smart guy. He was also very social despite being shy as a kid.  He […]

The Blessings Of Grief

I’m guessing that not many people would put the words blessings and grief together but I could see no other way. Also I promised myself I would not write one more sad post about grief and losing people that I love but……hang in here with me, I promise this is more about joy than it […]

Traveling with me is such a joy…maybe not

We are currently on a mini vacation or not depending on when this gets posted. 🙂 My favorite part of traveling is arriving.  My not so favorite part is packing and getting the house ready for our departure. I am always amazed how opposites attract and this certainly applies to Paul and me when we […]

How Did She do it? She just did :)

I’m not sure how she did it but she did.  My friend Susan managed to spread her sparkle of joy wherever she went and with whoever she met. Her tagline, motto, actually her whole essence was “Choose Joy, Bless Others” and that she did every single day! She also believed that “Until Further Notice Celebrate […]
