Slow Down, You’re Doing Fine!

I found my eyeglasses in the dog dish this morning. They weren’t  my rose-coloured ones, they were the  regular ones that I use to see the computer and write this blog. I don’t know how they got there. I was rushing about getting dressed and I must have knocked them into my dogs kibble. Before you start …

Where Did I Put My Rose Coloured Glasses

I’ve misplaced them again. My glasses. The rose-coloured ones. They are my favourite. I usually put them on everyday as soon as I get up so that I can see everything clearer. I need to be able to see the world for what it really is rather than rely on everyone else to tell me what is …

A Lesson in Fashion or How I Got My Son To Pull His Pants Up

I try not to judge. Especially when it comes young people and their appearances. I try not to comment on my children’s fashion choices. I was young once, I get it. Sometimes you just want to experiment or express yourself creatively through the clothes or the hairstyles or the makeup you wear or even the tattoos that you …

As My Baby Girl Flies Away

My baby girl will fly away today. She’s leaving on a plane this afternoon heading for the beginning of her lifelong dream. My heart swells with joy and pride as I watch her gather the things she needs for her trip. I remind her to bring something warm to wear. It’s colder on, what feels …

A Fresh New Beginning !

The siding on the house had dulled somewhat. Once clean and white, it was covered in the dust and grit of yesterday and the week before and the year before that. The house had never looked so lonely and bare.  For some reason the flowers that lined the house hadn’t bloomed well the year before. The Evening …

My Brother The Music Man

I was listening to Mr. Blue Sky by E.L.O It is a beautiful new day. Everytime I hear this song I think of my older brother. He brought music into our house. Prior to his early teen years I had only been exposed to the music of the Lawrence Welk show some Anne Murray and a …

Getting My Love On!

I’ve been getting my love on for a while now. I’m wanting to take it out and send it forward to see what will happen. I hope there is someone else out there who wants to help. Better yet, I hope there are a billion people out there who want to help. This is how it …

That’s My Mother!

She woke up early and baked fresh cinnamon buns, her hair tied back in a snood, A few of her jet black curls escaped at the bottom. She juggled the hot muffin tins from the oven and quickly refilled them with batter. The aroma woke me up in the morning and got me to my …

The Good Thing About Spam

I can’t delete my spam. I look at it everyday and hover my cursor over the delete area considering if I should trash it. Spam is multiple copies of the same message that floods the internet in an attempt to force a message or product on people who don’t want to receive it. I installed …

Synchronicity and Divine Intervention or How I Met My Husband

In high school, I often left at lunch hour and walked the 7 blocks with a friend to her house to eat.  We generally took the same route everyday. We walked fast and talked fast, we giggled and knocked each other into bushes along the way. There was a house we passed by often. It caught …

Restoring balance for Mother’s Day.

I’m having a pretty decent Mother’s day weekend. It started yesterday. My daughter and I hung out. I was heading to the store in the afternoon. She suggested we walk there together. I was a little tired. I didn’t feel much like going for a walk.  I thought about it for a minute. She had been so …

A sprinkle of insecurity.

I had a moment the other day. Actually I had about 10 moments in the last two days. Actually I had 10 moments that lasted over an hour in the last two days, moments of self doubt. I thought I was done with that. I was concerned about becoming egotistical or too self involved. My closest …

A Breakthrough?

I’m so relieved. I finally painted something. I don’t know if it’s finally a breakthrough or if it’s just a creative hiccup. I started it while I was writing about feeling a little crabby and I finished it just after I finished my thoughts on the Apocalypse. Now that’s a weird process if I do …

Armageddon? Yikes!

In the last two years there has been a strange sound heard in our city. They call it the Windsor Hum.  There has been numerous reports across the world about this same or similar noise. I am intrigued by it and have to admit that I have spent a good deal of time, more than …

What Happened To My Dance Moves?

I used to be a pretty good dancer. I never took a dance class. It just came naturally. I danced all the time. I danced all night long at a bar, or a wedding I attended. I danced on the beach and created some of my best moves in front of the mirror in my …
