The Sunday Post: On Dads and Paella

It’s my first Father’s Day since we lost my dad. I’m not sure what I want to say here today that I haven’t already shared with you. We all miss him. I’ve been thinking about him today. I was watching a cooking competition show on Netflix the other day and each episode in this series…

The Sunday Post: Out of Office

In case you’re looking for this weekend’s post, I’m a little busy getting away from it all at the moment, but I did start working on something new. I’ll see you back here soon.

The Sunday Post: The Artist Within

Today’s yoga session was titled “Awaken the Artist Within” and is part of this month’s (Expand) playlist from Yoga with Adriene. It was perfect for today because just last night I was experimenting with watercolors, seeing if I could bring out the artist in me, seeing if I have any of my mother’s painting talent….

The Sunday Post: 499

If you noticed that I skipped this past week’s Music Fridays post, I’m sorry. I had something planned but time got away from me and then I couldn’t find the song I wanted to share. If I had posted it as scheduled, this would now be post #500! I have a couple of ideas for…

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…

The Sunday Post: Sorting out Feelings

Someone asked me today about my feelings for my ex: Did I have any? Is there anything still unresolved (in my head or heart)? They asked me this question while letting me know I didn’t have to answer right away, or ever if I didn’t want to. I did answer, and right now I can’t…

The Sunday Post: On Mother’s Day and Writing

Happy Mother’s Day! It’s ironic that on my first Mother’s Day since moving closer to my children I didn’t see either of them today. I’m not complaining though. My oldest was out of town for a wedding and I spent the weekend at her place taking care of the pets. I heard from my youngest…

The Sunday Post: Sunday Drive

I went for another Sunday drive today, this time to the North Carolina Arboretum near Asheville. It was a beautiful day that ended with a late lunch at a barbecue place. I don’t have a lot of words to share with you. Maybe a full day in the car with someone used up all my…

The Sunday Post: A Quick Recap

Warning: This post is going to ramble. It will cover many seemingly unrelated topics. (Yes, I know. This will not be the first time.) I might get somewhere by the time I’m finished writing, but I might not. I will reward you with some pretty pictures at the end. I’m back home after my road…
