It’s been a week or so, feeling bad about not writing. Today was all over. Had a fight with my 11 year old, which ended up in a nuclear Grade A meltdown on my part. You wouldn’t expect this from me. Really. I’m pretty pleasant, my kids are good kids. I even dote on them […]Read more "Keep on Writing, Up and Down"
Nothing to really write about, but I opened my back door this morning and there was a robin scampering around on my back lawn. And it’s a beautiful morning! And my lawn happens to be freshly mowed, thatched and raked! It’s never been mowed thatched and raked! Because… I hate lawns! But since I must […]Read more "Just Mr Robin on My Lawn"
Two days til knee surgery…it started with a grocery list, and escalated! I’m looking over every room, envisioning how I’ll be crutching around.

It seems so little […]Read more "How It All Adds Up*"

I’m trying to write, but one of the best things to come out of this “trying”, is that I’ve found a lot of good stuff in […]Read more "Saturday Growth"
When the light dims? I don’t read a ton of self-help and spiritualism, but I do read a lot in the area of leading a happy, productive, minimalistic life. “I’d rather have a passport full of stamps, than a houseful of stuff” “Be grateful” “Give of yourself” “It’s the little things that count, in life […]Read more "What happens…"
I think it’s because I have a cold, a bad one. I almost cried last night because I felt so horrid (evidently watching the Downton Abbey marathon) C’mon, a cold. Ani?! Hold it together! I spent the last two days on the couch, breathing thru my mouth, drinking massive amounts of liquids and consuming weird, […]Read more "It’s Too Quiet"
