Have you Colored Lately?

This was this week’s bloom and I’m happy to report that the answer to this question is “yes!” I found these coloring bookmarks on my last Target run and I have already colored one and gifted it to S. I’m working on this one for myself now. Wonder if there’s a fall edition? Might have…

The Sunday Post: Surrounded

This will be short and sweet today. Not because I don’t have much to write about, but because I’m a little tired (it was Zumba day) and I will be headed out the door soon for dinner. While I was reading the book “The Chicken Sisters” last week I developed a craving for fried chicken….

The Sunday Post: Making Time

I realized recently that I’ve been slacking in writing something in response to the blooms I pick each week from my little watering can of prompts. It’s not like I haven’t been pulling one each week, although I think I have missed a week here and there. When I received these my instructions were to…

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…

The Sunday Post: 100 Days of Gratitude

I dedicate this post to my ex-husbands. Yes, really. You’ll read why in a minute or two. When I began to collect all the entries in my gratitude journal for 2021 I knew that there would be many things repeated from day to day. It would be natural to have many repetitions. My friends and…

My Single Life: Day 49

I had date #4 with “dress guy” last night. You know, the one who said he would go anywhere with me as long as I wore dresses like the one I did for our first dinner date. This is also the guy I thought I scared away with all my talking and tears on our…

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…

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…
