Music Fridays: I’m Good

Happy Friday, y’all! Last night as I was improvising a dinner with the few things I had in my fridge and freezer I pulled out a couple of my favorite cookbooks and scrolled through Pinterest a while. Somehow the dinner I pulled together didn’t scratch the itch I had to cook or bake something. Later,…

So Little Time…

I have so much to write about, but so little time? So much has happened in the last week and yet… I’m choosing to only concentrate on the important stuff, the good stuff. For example, last weekend I was on a three-hour Zoom call. Yes, I know I said I was only going to write…

Family Ties

It’s been a great week. It’s only Tuesday but if I look back over the last seven days or so, I would qualify them as pretty awesome. Awesome is a word I would like to avoid using, but sometimes it just fits. Over the last several days I’ve received a gorgeous bouquet of flowers from…

Music Fridays: Miss Independent

The song I’m sharing with you today is from my favorite American Idol, Kelly Clarkson. (I can’t believe this song is already 18 years old.) I was looking for something that I could tie into the July 4th weekend when I thought of this song. As I listened to it this morning with my new-found…

I Catch Myself Smiling

I catch myself smiling at inopportune times It’s random, just out of the blue I might be in the middle of a meeting Or just driving, sitting in my car A memory or thought will sneak up On me and make me smile Or even laugh Even sitting in the salon I can’t escape When…

A Weekend Away

I’m back home and already midway through the work week and looking forward to the weekend. Despite the scattered thunderstorms and stubborn clouds, we sat on the beach, hung out by the pool, and drank margaritas on the balcony. For the sake of his privacy and brevity, I will refer to my travel companion as…

Making Them Count

I’ve never really been a numbers person. Numbers don’t stick in my head that easily, except for maybe my age. For some reason that’s a hard number to forget. And yet here I am counting days I’ve been single, days since the course of my life changed, and now the number of blog posts I’ve…

A Year Later…

At this time exactly one year ago, I was sitting in my house, just a few miles from where I’m sitting now, trying to be brave enough to ask a very important question: What’s wrong? Why does it feel like you’re drifting farther and farther away from me? What is going on and what can…

The Sunday Post: Fences (Day 94)

I had a revelation last night. It didn’t happen while washing dishes, or taking a shower, or while driving. That’s usually how and when they happen, of course, when I’m in the middle of something else and all of a sudden the pot that was simmering in the back burner starts to whistle and demands…
