I woke up this morning feeling a bit low. Then I went for my walk and the sky was such a true blue. Now I feel so good.
So many signs along the highways now. Especially entering a city. The speed signs make me crazy. There used to be a speed you travelled in on main highways. But now there are several speed zones to watch for when travelling. It is easy to maybe get caught going to fast (never too slow). Signs […]
I purchased an ivy plant 2 weeks ago. It was very nice and healthy and lots of delicate leaves all over the plant. I brought it home and I transplanted it into a medium sized pot. I watered it and put some miracle grow in it and then left to stand with the other plants […]
I was diagnosed with a Morton’s Neuroma after an ultrasound was done in the fall of 2019. My doctor highly recommended surgery to get the neuroma excised. March 2020 I saw my surgeon. By then, I was doing yoga for my feet daily and massaging my foot with a lacrosse ball on the floor. These […]
The reason you want every single thing that you want, is because you think you will feel really good when you get there. But, if you don’t feel really good on your way to there, you can’t get there. You have to be satisfied with what IS while you’re reaching for more.” Esther Hicks
Whether the poem makes sense to me or not I just love the imperfection of this donkey, the colour and disproportionate body, the light gold wings…..angelic almost. She said the head was too large, the hooves too small. I could clean my paintbrush but I couldn’t get rid of that voice. While they watched, I […]
Friends make me feel good. A massage makes me feel good. Are there words that make me feel good? I feel good when I say to myself that I am worthwhile. I am connected. I am supported. I am gracious. I accept myself. There is a quote or phrase that does not make me feel […]
I am looking at all the pages of my novel and I treat it as a friend. Writing this story has kept me grounded and kept my brain in full focus.This story has been my pandemic friend. I have to make sure I respect the characters. I have to write about them carefully so I […]
My make up products began with Clinique. I was a serious advocate; until I had to deal with sensitivity around the eyes. I then tried several other make up companies; like CNC Concept Now Cosmetics ( my mom was a make up consultant ) -Young Living Essential Oils – Melaleuca company – Pure Anada – […]
Lest We Forget about my family hero Sir Wilford H. Kirk (2nd from the left in photo below). He was my father-in-law. He was 90 years old in these photos and passed away in 2009. Sir Wilford H. Kirk (centre) Prime Minister of Holland in 2008 and Brian W. Kirk (Sir Wilford Kirk’s son.) Click […]
I like surprises. So many good things have shown up for me. A rainbow in November? Was not expecting that.
I attended a local writers group for the first time a few days ago. I listened to some written stories. I have a novel of 30,000 words completed. The difficult part was how to end it. I am keeping it just the way it is though; as a reference only and practice novel. I will […]
I overthink things. Always. I need more sunshine. I do seem to be always making lists. I will be putting on those sunglasses more often.
I love perennials and how reliable they are every single darn year. This year has been a challenge for all of us I know that. When I look around the bedding plant areas it reminds me of the things we had to be resilient with.
How am I feeling and doing these past 2 weeks with my mom gone? I slept a lot for 3 days after her death. Then I slept myself out and started to have a flood of great memories; to the point I could not get to sleep for several nights as I could not stop […]
Hubby and I had these bales dropped off in the front yard and before we put them away for winter we thought we would show the highway drive-by traffic a Halloween smile! Three cans of bright orange spray paint and 1 black spray can later……….it’s art!
We keep these four in our extended family. They are so fun and interesting as they share their lives and their children with us. We are grateful.
I showed my hairdresser this pic last week for her to see that I did not want a short hair cut. I wanted a very short – no fuss – short hair cut!!
A mother passing on with 92 years to be proud of She was my mom She was a determined woman She attempted and succeeded at many things that were out of her comfort zone I practice doing the same She parented me well She angered me many times I did not always get along with […]
Reaching out to my plants to get some grounding energy. I just enjoy the shape of this flower bed and a 3 sided view is more interesting.
These towels are very old. They have taken on a lot from my body. Even though they are faded they are still thick and worth reusing, I am absorbing love and memories from this pile.
It’s been a full day away from home for me. It’s a wild ride out there but it will all be okay.
Improving the basement rooms is always a last Reno project and after 7 years we finally tackled the basement bedrooms. We chose the Benjamin Moore Mineral Ice colour. This is after the first coat. We painted over a deep bright blue colour. Here is my son Tom who has an interesting story about how he […]
I am finally figuring out how to take care of myself. All I have to do is keep my mind on focus for things I want that make me feel good and be grateful. Neither of those things are easy. It pays off! I had a pretty good health report at my quarterly check up […]
I bought these 3 items at Indigo/Chapters book store in Regina. The top is actually pyjamas. A knit black hat. The black bag is Love & Lore. These Sanuk shoes are from Sas-Kam sporting goods store in Kamsack. Talking about colour and simple style is better than election results and pandemic updates.
Which party have you placed your X for?
I like to pause for a moment and take a breath before I enter into a relationship that requires attention at a different mindset.
Isn’t this a poor green for a bedroom. It’s our basement bedroom for guests. The blue bedroom is a nothing room. I use it for massages/energy treatments. So we are painting and I can’t wait for the colour change. We use Benjamin Moore and the colour is Mineral Ice. Do you like to paint? I […]
For indigestion issues I have a great smoothie to share here. It has saved me several times over the last 2 weeks. The recipe is very complicated. 1 cup or so of water in blender 1 squeezed lemon or lime 1/2 of a green apple 2 large stalks of celery mint flakes Crank up the […]
This is my kind of style! The make up is not my style but if someone wanted to apply make up on me and I ended up looking like this, well that would be delightful!
I bought a Kate Spade planner. I just liked the look of it. I am going to use it for little things that I wish to happen each day. Manifesting good things everyday by writing them in a planner. It’s worth a try.
I have told stories and shared stories in person, many times. I have spent the last year writing a short novella (25,000 words). It was fun to create characters and fit them into the storyline. The extremely difficult long process of editing the final draft is very hard. The written word is there and it […]
The evenings are amazing for weather. My husband and I spend a lot of our evenings with our horses. When we have unsaddled our horses they get to eat green grass for a few minutes. Green grass in middle of September? We had 11 inches of rain in a matter of a few days a […]
The most exciting thing that has happened to me today is this Fall Phlox perennial will bloom soon. It will blossom with white flowers.
Writing a little something on this blog daily is fun for me!
I am putting out a blog post daily and I get an opportunity on this website here to just feel and write about things that show up in my day. I am still dressing my truth from Carol Tuttle (my.liveyourtruth.com.) I started investing in her energy profile system in 2014. I have gained a wealth […]
This spot always surprises me when I walk around our yard, because it just shows up and presents a quiet moment.
This Ash tree is in its glory now. Ash trees are not known to keep their leaves for very long. We always joke about them being the last to have leaves growing on them in spring and the first to drop their leaves off in the fall. It is glorious to see this tree look […]
Yes, that was me. When I learned to ride 18 years ago it was not without tension and a tight stomach-ache. Before I got on the horse I always had to excuse myself and head to the washroom.. Three years ago it ended. I am now very comfortable on a horse. I still overthink getting […]
You weren’t expecting a motorbike rider were you? Sunday mornings are very quiet on the main highway we live close to. Blue sky, no wind and September coolness got me out the door very early. There is nothing quite like riding your bike on a nice paved highway all by yourself. I dressed in red […]
I have stuff. My lovely ocean blue cracked dinnerware set and my deep purple smooth purse from Bench at Marshall’s store. This is the correct stuff for me. Necessities and Accessories. The wrong stuff is just stuff stuffed in front of things that don’t matter. I like to go to our backyard and let go […]
I am ready for the beautiful fall season coming to us now. I can’t say I have wrapped up summer. It was a time for me to get myself in better shape mentally. If things come back to me that I have already dealt with I know what to do.
This is it. A big hike this afternoon has me putting on the Hygge time for me.
September 1st! I feel like there are fearful things blooming in this world once again. I understand why weeds and wild flowers show themselves all the time. They are in our grasses and pastures and flower beds. Everywhere. That is nature right? I don’t fear weeds and wild flowers. I pull them out if I […]
I don’t always have a plan for my day. I sometimes have a low self confidence day. I take action with putting on my make up and/or earrings and a top that looks great on me. I can get dressed up at home and not go anywhere. Hygge is a word means brightening up your […]
These are my parents. They both turned 92. They reside in a care home now. One night the staff was checking the rooms and they couldn’t find my mom. She was not in her bed. They were looking for her, as of course knowing seniors will wander. Finally, they noticed my mom had crawled into […]
Yes, but it was the Olive Garden waiter who poured the coffee from a silver pitcher and into my white cup with a white saucer. The way coffee should be drank. It’s not just the little pleasures. It’s quality that I enjoy. No Starbucks, Tim Hortons.
Do you know what it means to rest? I didn’t until this summer. I found it means no distractions. For me it is sitting on the deck listening to music. It means not caring for anything for a while.
What does that mean? I know I am full of different emotions throughout my day. Everyday. It means I am alive when I am feeling angry and anxious and uncertain and funny and confident and sad and hurt and grateful and in pain and surprised. Put all that inside a bowl and mix my emotions […]
