Silence. I had been looking for it, requesting it, seeking it out, and then demanding it for some time. I know better than to seek it out. I know better than to demand it. I know that I have to do my part, be still, quiet my inner chatter and allow it in or out. …

Sweeping in the New Year….again!!

A repeat of last years post because…. I’ll be doing this same thing again.  This year though I will be sweeping harder than I ever have before.     Here we go…….   I don’t usually go out on New Years Eve. At least, I try not to. I’m much too busy sweeping. It’s just …

Nothing left to do but blog!

Nothing left to do but blog! I kind of sort of missed Christmas. Not just the one day but all the days leading up to it. All 12 of them before and the two afterward I had the influenza. Not just the flu. The INFLUENZA. I now know with all certainty that I have never …

Fallen Angel

Fallen Angel It’s feeling more like fall these last few days.  The nights have been cooler as are the mornings. There’s that familiar odor in the air; the smell of changing seasons.  Strangely I feel an urge to buy lined paper, some good pens ( a few blue, one black, one red), coloured pencils and …

The Magic Jacket

  An authors update:   I mentioned in my last post that I was writing a book.   It’s come to a bit of a standstill for a couple of reasons.   1,    I’m running out of words that I know how to use to form a sentence. I’ve realized that my vocabulary list is …

Somehow we survive!

My father never owned a car.  We weren’t the only ones in our neighbourhood who didn’t have one? Do you remember back to a time before everyone seemed to have a car? Do you remember when we didn’t wear seatbelts when driving in a car? My uncle used to pick us up in his old …

Blogging for my life!

I’m coming up to the one year anniversary of starting this blog. I thought by now I would have an idea of where I was going with this. I didn’t know then and I still don’t know now. I can’t completely figure out why I started in the first place. I was between here and …

Flu snapshot- a delirious and dramatic tale.

This weekend I was up to my neck with the flu. I say up to my neck because I was still coherent( aside from a few moments of delirium), was able to form sentences and count backwards from 100 so everything from the neck up was functioning well. From my collar-bone down, I was a …

While you wait for spring!

Spring is really on its way.  At first glance it’s a little hard to tell, what with the couple inches of slushy snow that fell last night.   The key word here is slush and slush means not completely frozen which means warm snow and warmer snow means warmer temps which means SPRING!!!!!!!!! If you stand …

You are an amazing being; A living, breathing miracle!!!!!!

You are a miracle. It’s true. Do you realize what it took to get you here? Do you realize the stuff you are made of? Not the stuff you acquired along the way. I’m talking about the stuff that you already were, are and always will be regardless of your station in life, regardless of …

Life is but a dream!

I had this great dream the other night that left me wondering if it was really a dream at all. Maybe, just maybe it was a peak into the far ahead, the someday. I woke in the morning and the first thought I had was, “so that’s where they went”. And I felt peaceful. This …

I got nothin’!

Here I go again, nothing much to write.  If I was a writer, I’d say I have writer’s block, but I’m not a writer. I’m just a thinker who thinks thoughts and then writes them out on a blog for no particularly good reason. Sometimes my thoughts just flow in one continuous strand and then …

You must know by now that I like to talk about the great mysteries in life.  I like to seek answers to the questions that have plagued mankind. Today, I want to talk about something that has had me wondering for years. The topic came up once again as my daughter and I took a …

My heart is spilling over with joy!

My heart is spilling over with joy! The house is decorated, the tree is trimmed.  The lights on the front of the house have been hung, and then taken down and then re-hung again when 2 ft of the 30ft string had lost their Christmas spirit and went out.  We tested every bulb and when …
