The Sunday Post: Making Memories

I’m sitting here smiling in my little nest as I write this. I’ll get to why in a minute. It’s been a lazy day today but it feels good to do as close to nothing as possible. I’m working on laundry, watered my plants, and got on the yoga mat for a quick practice, but…

My Single Life: Day 37

I had multiple ideas last night for a post or two, and maybe even for the continuation of Jenny’s story, which I’m still working on, but of course I did not get out of bed to write them down. I was tired. I kind of remember a few of them…. This is (just) a quick…

Music Fridays: Soul

I don’t have a special reason or story to go with this week’s pick. This is one of the newer songs I’ve added to my library on my phone. I like the groove, the message. It makes me feel good. Sometimes that’s all you need. Have a great weekend!

The Sunday Post: Cords of Attachment and Blessings in Disguise

It’s getting close to my self-imposed deadline for this week’s Sunday Post and I’m still not clear what I’m writing about. Hang in here with me while I figure it out. I had lofty goals for today that included making a new spring recipe with homemade gnocchi. I even thought about baking, maybe taking another…

Music Fridays: Vamos a la Playa

This week’s bloom take me back to the beach…. wish I was there right now. This week’s weather turned cool and rainy, probably because I was bragging about how nice it was. 🙂 I’m not sure I ever went to Taboga when I was 13 or 14. I don’t remember going with my family so…

The Sunday Post: Springing to Life

I’ve been using the hashtag #springiscoming in my Instagram stories and my daughter corrected me this week by saying that summer is coming. She’s lived here longer and this is my first spring in South Carolina so she might be right. Maybe spring only lasted a couple days and we’re about to start the summer…

Music Fridays: My Life

This week’s bloom again had perfect timing: “You can’t control other people’s behavior, never could, never will. All you can control is how you react.” — Dottie Billington, Ph.D. I had been talking to someone just before I picked my bloom about a related topic. He was frustrated and trying to work through some family…

You’re Doing it Wrong

Is there a wrong way to do it? I’m referring to dating, in case you can’t read my mind. Maybe specifically online dating, but mostly dating in general. This is so new to me. I keep thinking that my case is unusual, that most people have dated much more than I have at some point…

The Sunday Post: Breathing it All In

It’s been a good week, mostly. I had a rough day earlier this week, missing my dad. I’m not sure how to explain it but the timing of everything that happened last year made it even harder than it would have been to deal with it. Because he passed away just days after finding out…
