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 […]
I can really appreciate our home when I come down the lane and pull into the garage. I have an easy life with so much room to breathe.
Restful and peaceful with no distractions tonight. Just getting darker and it seems the world is just for horses.
These 3 books I have pre-ordered on my kobo e-reader. They are not available to read until October,. Which one will I read first? Any favourite authors who have new books coming out that you are waiting to get your hands on?
No. I do not monetize this website. I don’t have any income from it. My internet traffic is small. I post randomly. I post whatever comes up for me what I feel I need to share on social media. If I monetize this blog, then I will be very annoyed with the ads in my […]
The last couple of posts I am discussing my neck pain with headaches and I did this short video on what it looks like and how I started to release this issue with my neck. I did this tapping several times until something popped into my head and I would tap on that. I am […]
This is my second day of the practice of tapping for releasing headache onsets. I have tapped to release my neck tension which is causing headaches, yesterday. I have tapped to release my left/ankle/neuroma foot cramps at night. It is a simple process. I keep tapping on 7 areas on my head and face and […]
Due to my physical issues with my neck and shoulder pain caused by muscle tension issues; or I call it my disease; it is still causing me headaches (less frequently now) but it always returns. I am delving into this emotional freedom techniqueI (EFT) called now The Tapping Solution. I have known about it for […]
I used to always feel summer was over come the middle of August. It is not over. Summer on the calendar ends mid September so feel good about that. I am going to just keep on, keeping on! Plan a picnic at the lake. Go to the lake and cherish the August sun and lake […]
The rewards now, since I have mostly passed through the raw edges of grief, are not written in-between the time lines I list below and I have left that out. The hearing impairment of our boys and looking after 4 hearing aids and speech therapy for each of them was a skill I spent too […]
If your summer needs an uplift, you possibly may need to move more and dance or wave your hands in the air. Just a suggestion.
Hi! I am into a few routines and I understand what works for me. There are many professionals and you- tubers who talk about how important routines are: My routine in the morning is what gets me out of bed in the morning. Mine is writing and putting an outfit on and have coffee! OR […]
This was easy to just photo shoot out of my 35 mm camera quickly today, and see the simple beauty in my yard. My camera is such a wonderful therapist!
Summer is supposed to be easy so here we go: Visit friends and laugh frequently Look at my bedding plants and say hello Like my soft cushy new padded bike seat cover keep visiting the lakes in my area; it is why I moved here keep my horse rides easy and make sure my horse […]
Vinterbadning is winter bathing in Denmark. I challenged myself this past weekend while we were at the lake. It is June 2021 and the weather is only +8 – +13. The ice just came off the lake a month ago. I follow this Danish lady who does winter bathing throughout the year at Copenhagen, Denmark. […]
D0 you like food? How about do you binge eat? or do you know that you actually eat sensibly , but yet, you are still not losing any pounds or just not feeling as good as you could. FOR me it was all of the above.! THIS book called The Writing Diet written by Julia […]
