Lazy Sunday

Can these guys get anymore relaxed? So I woke up the other day and found this. You can see my right pant leg, the pink with the light pattern in it, along with my foot in the purple sock peeking out from under the blanket. Anna is right by my foot, Toby has wedged himself… Continue reading Lazy Sunday

Quote of the day 

For most of us humans, acceptance, of anything, is so very hard to do. Whether it's your current job, living situation, romantic life, physical attributes, or traffic issues, we just don't want to accept things as they are. We are stubborn and fight and resist and pout and just want it to be the way… Continue reading Quote of the day

The wise and wonderful 

I have some senior pets, which I think they are the best. People overlook senior pets because they are old; they are not new, and cute, and funny and precocious. But that's not the point, is it?  With senior pets you know what you're getting, their size and temperament, and they are not as rambunctious.… Continue reading The wise and wonderful

What’s up Saturday 

Thinking about all these beautiful things today and how lucky I am to have them in my life. All is well here, keeping very busy, and some personal life changes happening. It's all good stuff though. I hope you are well.

Decompression time

So you know how you feel after spending a lot of time with family and you are away from home and not in your natural environment?  Yes, that.  So it's decompression time for me; going back to my calm and serene home and my familiar surroundings to regroup. I'm sure there are a lot of… Continue reading Decompression time

the universe is talking to me

  I was working around the house yesterday, making some much needed minor repairs, when I heard a very sudden bang! And crash! Like something glass had just broken.  I dash into the next room (on the other side of the wall where I was working), and sure enough, my glass piggy bank I had… Continue reading the universe is talking to me

Monday motivation 

   My micromovement for this week was cleaning off my crafty table so I could 1) see the table underneath all the crap that was covering it, 2) have a clutter free work environment so I could focus, 3) get busy with the pattern for my Trash2Trends project. Less than a month now so I really… Continue reading Monday motivation

Lazy sunday

   I was recommended this book after a coworker friend found it and raved about its magical decluttering properties. I've read only part - about organizing your clothes drawer - and it's made a lot of sense, and has made my getting ready for work in the morning so much easier.  Needless to say, I… Continue reading Lazy sunday

Waiting for the day

As other introverts will tell you, if we don't like you, we just won't talk to you. We're not being mean, or rude, or insensitive, it's just that we would rather spend our energy on people that are worth it. And we're not spiteful or angry to the person we don't like, we're considerate and… Continue reading Waiting for the day
