I’m not brave

When I read this morning’s prompt I didn’t think I had anything to contribute to the topic. The prompt was “How are you brave?” I wouldn’t describe myself as brave at all. I’ve lived much of my life being afraid to take chances. Afraid to look stupid, or silly. The only real change I relished…

The Adventures Continue

Last weekend had a few firsts for me. I learned how to play backgammon Friday and both games were close! Granted, S gave me lots of tips and hints, so it probably would have been a blowout otherwise. But it was fun! The next morning we headed to the Saluda River for tubing! I know…not…

The Sunday Post: Dry July

Is it over yet? It’s been almost two weeks since I saw S and it feels like two months. I’m back from my work trip and now he’s on one of his own and won’t be back until the end of the week. I’ve been trying to stay busy. Work has helped; there’s always plenty…

July 4

It’s Independence Day here in the USA. It’s also a Monday so that means our weekend is a little longer than usual and those of us that like to sleep in got a little extra time with our pillows. However, at around 5:30 am this morning I woke up and remembered that my alarm would…

What I’m Into Right Now

I haven’t been able to decide what I want to write about, so I’m going to write a little bit about a few of the things I’m doing these days. It seems I’ve turned into the “woman who lives alone and goes days without leaving the house, watches birds and Ozark, dances in her living…

Four Days in Savannah

The Sunday Post: 100 Days of Gratitude

I found this post from a year ago while scrolling through some messages. I was thinking about where I was a year ago this week, remembering how I was feeling just a few days after taking my relationship with S to the next level, and just a few days before my solo vacation to Savannah….

After Life

Last night I found myself surrounded by paper and crying in front of my television. I wasn’t crying about the mess (although a few things I found among the mess would have made me cry a year ago). I’d created this mess while trying to do some filing to prepare for tax time, which led…
