The Sunday Post: Send me Dead Flowers

How is it August already? I can’t say it doesn’t feel like the dog days of summer, though. I like to sit outside as much as possible but lately if I don’t get out there first thing it’s too warm to sit out on either balcony for very long. It’s noon now and I’m out…

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: Pillow Talk

Pillow TalkIt’s dark, no lights on in this room.Music’s soft, coming from another room.I hear you breathing next to me.Our legs are tangled, your arm’s resting on me.My thoughts are spinning, I’m not sure if I should.I think I know what my heart is feeling, but maybe I misunderstood.I start by telling you I am…

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: 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…
