How to survive a hurricane 

I want to keep my hands busy and create something, anything. I want them to work like a spider creates a web and cast a net of protection across everyone I love.  I'm safe and yet I can't help but think of my neighbors, my friends, and even the strangers who sought water along with… Continue reading How to survive a hurricane

Final boarding call.

Sure am glad I didn't dawdle getting to the airport and while running late accidentally park my rental car in the wrong return lane and be told I have to go inside to fix it, only to find out that no I need to go back outside to get a slip from the very chatty car… Continue reading Final boarding call.

Welcome to Humans Anonymous!

I have a confession. It turns out i am a human. Who is flawed. And (gulp) imperfect. There's something about the holidays that just leaves me feeling raw and vulnerable. I am sure I am alone in this. I am sure no other flawed, imperfect human struggles this time of year! Let me tell you… Continue reading Welcome to Humans Anonymous!

Saturday Morning

Outside the mourning doves are cooing. Inside the house, my daughter is declaring the toast to be too toasty (and her highness is requesting less-toasty toast please!). There is a low whine in the background -- the sound of a broken toilet that won't stop running and that my mediocre plumbing skills are not capable… Continue reading Saturday Morning

Coffee, a Love Story

The biggest realization with my cleanse? That there are certain positive behaviors I regularly engage in that rely upon other actions (say, brewing a cup of coffee...) that when missing from my routine creates CHAOS. It turns out that coffee is the gear in our household machinery that, when absent, causes the whole enterprise to… Continue reading Coffee, a Love Story

This Is Not A Blog Post

This is not a blog post. It looks like a blog post but it isn't really one. It is me sitting down attempting to write even though I am tired and grumpy and everyone in my house is either grumpy or sick. My only hope to turn things around are pumpkins. How I love them.… Continue reading This Is Not A Blog Post

Things are brewing (but not coffee)

I have drafts in my head that I want to put on page but instead I'm painting so the words will have to wait just a bit longer. Things are brewing. Not coffee of course. Welp. I made it three hours into the morning and legitimately thought about throwing in the towel. That is how… Continue reading Things are brewing (but not coffee)

Pour me some hot water and get me a lemon! Change is in the air.

Today I'm savoring my cup of coffee today more than ever. First of all I have a cross breeze flowing through my house. It is glorious. I opened the back doors to the lanai and the fresh air is tickling my toes! Oh it is a sight to behold. It is officially the time of… Continue reading Pour me some hot water and get me a lemon!
