The Sunday Post: A Poem on Valentine’s Day

Like Riding a Bicycle I had a dream last night that I was on a bicycle. This was odd really, and almost seems impossible. You see, I’ve never, ever, ridden a bike. Though, according to my baby book, I did have a trike. My mother wrote that my legs weren’t quite long enough so maybe…

The Sunday Post: Familiarity

It snowed last night! If my daughter hadn’t texted me though I might not have noticed until this morning. I had the shades down in my living room, watching a couple more episodes of “How to get away with murder” and hoping to stay awake long enough to catch Dan Levy’s appearance on SNL, and…

The Sunday Post: Growth

This week’s bloom was about growth. Blossoming. Doing what you didn’t think was possible. I’ve been doing a lot this month that I wasn’t all that sure was possible not too long ago. There’s the more obvious things like yoga every day, thinking of ten things every day that I’m grateful for, drinking more water,…

The Sunday Post: Balancing Tricks

It had only been a day or two since I had written about balance, so when I pulled this week’s bloom I’m not sure if I should have been surprised when I read it or accepted that it was simply a sign that I was on the right track. Today I’m writing about balance again,…

The Sunday Post: Self Care

Self care. A lot of people talk about it, and some even poke fun at the idea. Maybe they think it’s an indulgence, or selfish behavior, or something that only those with money can participate in. I don’t think it’s just about treating yourself, although doing something that you normally wouldn’t do, either because of…

The Sunday Post: Future

What does the future hold for me? This week’s bloom reminded me that much of that is within my control. So what do I want for my future? One of my goals for the year was to set money aside every paycheck and put it in my savings account.. Having my paycheck go directly to…

The Sunday Post: Habits

I wasn’t sure what the first Sunday Post of 2021 would be about. New year, new start? A review of 2020 or resolutions for 2021? Think I’ve been doing that all along and already made a few promises to myself for 2021 in earlier posts. As I knew I would, I’ve been all over the…

The Sunday Post: This is Me Trying

You may not be surprised to read that Christmas was a little hard, mostly Christmas Eve, when I spent most of the day alone. I spent much of the day remembering. I thought about our (newish) tradition of going out to dinner Christmas Eve, just the two of us, ending the evening snuggled on the…

The Sunday Post: Feed Me!

I’m watching one of those food/travel shows and it’s making me hungry! It’s also making me want to cook, bake, and then eat!The show I’m watching is called “Somebody Feed Phil” and it’s just the right mixture of travelogue, reality TV, and cooking show. Phil travels around the world eating the best of what the…
