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

Lazy Sunday

I felt like these guys today. I just wanted to lie around my feet hurt so badly. I don't know what's going on, but it hurts the bottoms of my feet to walk. I'm going to see a physical therapist this week for the pinched nerve in my hip, and a podiatrist next week. I… Continue reading Lazy Sunday

Almost closing time

This has been a whirlwind week, with cleaning and purging and donating and updating and just plain throwing out, I get totally sidetracked and forget about other projects that I care about and have time invested in, like this writing.  But these distractions in life are temporary and life returns to its new normal, whatever… Continue reading Almost closing time

Getting older is not for the faint of heart

I took this photo a couple months ago. I wanted to chronicle my fabulous haircut for future reference, you know, so that way I could show the hairdresser at the $15 haircut place - $8 with a coupon How I wanted my haircut. I never get the same person twice so it's never cut the… Continue reading Getting older is not for the faint of heart

Maybe my clutter is the problem…

The two nicest rooms in my house are the guest room and my 2nd bath. You know why? Because they are uncluttered. No extra extraneous things to distract my mind, just clean rooms with only the necessary objects for a simple, minimalist way to live. This has actually proved to be quite calming for me, so… Continue reading Maybe my clutter is the problem…

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 

So you may know that my big girl Anna only has three legs. She's missing her front right leg due to an accident she incurred before we adopted her. If it were a back leg, it wouldn't be as much of an issue, but being her front leg, she gets tired a lot faster since… Continue reading Monday motivation

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

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
