Music Fridays: Are you gonna be my girl

Last night I was packing up a few items to drop off at the local Goodwill this weekend and I picked up one of the items I’m still undecided as to what to do with it. It’s an old cell phone, the last LG phone I had before I upgraded to an iPhone. Amazingly it…

Music Fridays: Put Your Records On

I’m late to this party, but I’ve been tidying up and editing my home after watching every episode of Netflix’s show “Get Organized with The Home Edit,” “Tidying up with Marie Kondo” and “Sparking Joy.” So after cleaning out closets and the pantry and finding more than I expected to donate or trash, I then…

Stars

Written for the #bloganuary prompt: How do you feel when you look at the stars?

The Sunday Post: 5 Things

A recent #Bloganuary prompt was to list five things I’m grateful for today. Unless you’re a new reader on this blog, you know that this is a topic I’ve written about quite a bit in the last year and a half, so this is not a hard topic and one I find easy to write…

Playing Favorites

I haven’t looked at all the prompts I’ve missed but yesterday’s was “favorite photo you’ve ever taken.” I am terrible at picking favorites. I’ve probably…

Music Fridays: Oh My God

That’s what I was thinking as I watched the snow fall last weekend. Where did all this snow and sleet come from? Fortunately I didn’t have to go anywhere and I enjoyed the weekend hibernating in my nest. As I wrote before, I spent a lot of time baking. I don’t remember what I was…

The Sunday Post: Getting Closer

This was the perfect weekend to bake. The forecast called for winter weather, including snow, which doesn’t happen very often in South Carolina. Because of that, I didn’t bring with me my snow boots or my car’s winter weather kit (including snow and ice scrapers) when I moved here in 2020. So what else is…
