The Sunday Post: It’s All Good (aka My Single Life: Day 60)

Isn’t it wonderful to have something to look forward to? I know I’m not alone in thinking that it’s about damned time that we all had something good to look forward to, something to be excited about. I’m getting on the road this week to celebrate my birthday with a solo road trip. Just months…

Loaded Dice

go for it maybe blow on it for a little bit of luck and let the good times roll they say life’s a crap shoot and she’s had her share of losses but she’ll roll with it and still give you her best side if she can ah, but how many sides are there, you…

Music Fridays: Man! I Feel Like a Woman

I’m on vacation!! I’m working on my road trip playlist and still have some time to fill. This is one of the songs on the list now. Positive song, great to dance to in your living room or in your car, and great to sing along with. Let me know if you have any suggestions…

The Sunday Post: 100 Days of Gratitude

I dedicate this post to my ex-husbands. Yes, really. You’ll read why in a minute or two. When I began to collect all the entries in my gratitude journal for 2021 I knew that there would be many things repeated from day to day. It would be natural to have many repetitions. My friends and…

Music Fridays: Something Old, Something New

Happy Friday! It’s a beautiful day here in the Upstate even though the forecast is calling for rain later today and tomorrow. The sun is shining right now though and my windows are open to let in a breeze, along with the competing sounds of lawn mowers, the bees, and the birds. I’m open, too….

When I See Your Name

I don’t like how I feel now when I see your name. I looked for it for so long, but it’s a habit I overcame. But now when I see it, I feel anxious, I feel stress. It takes me back in time several months, I’ll confess. At least my first instinct isn’t to drop…

The Sunday Post: Farewell to a Friend

Over the last couple of weeks I started watching “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.” Have you seen it? In this series the main character develops the ability to hear people’s innermost thoughts in the form of song. She is the only one who can hear them and big musical numbers happen all around her constantly. If you…

Music Fridays: The Ride

All you dead end boys All you break down girls Thinkin’ you’re all out of pavement Like it’s the end of the world All you burned out believers All you spinnin’ your wheels Like you’re gettin’ nowhere wing and a prayer I know just how you feel But it’s the stars that make the night…
