Let's Have Another Piece of Pie

Sometimes life cries out for a nice break from the daily routine …… a pie break, so to speak. A time to sit, to listen, to reflect. To taste the sweetness of life.

I’m Still Here

I haven’t posted very much recently.  It’s been a time of reflective – something.  It’s winter!  Now that I’m in the beginning of our seventh year in the mid-west, well, I feel, I feel…….. what do I feel?  I feel that staying indoors in the winter is a good idea.  Sorry mid-westerners for judging you.

But Spring is coming.  I know that because it’s like the law of gravity.  Spring will be here in March whether the weather is warmer or not.  It’s a given.  But seriously, even though the cold keeps coming back, each week we are gifted with warmer days and more sunshine.  The air feels fresh and hopeful.  Spring is coming.

I wrote a post in January titled It’s Time to Get Busy.  It was about the book I’m  supposed to be writing.  I actually wrote the dedication page and two chapters back then.  Also the cover is pretty much decided.  Then winter break ended and I am with my lovely lassies (the grand daughters) full-time again.  Well, the book is a work in progress.  I decided not to stress about it.  What is the hurry?  I want it to be good and if I try to write and care for the girls then it will not be good.

I beat myself up too much about it though.  I want perfection and I know I cannot achieve that as a human being so the beatings begin.  Anyone else do that?  Surely I’m not that unique.

Spring break will arrive in a few short weeks and perhaps another chapter or two will be written.  In the meantime, it is still very brown outside and very cold today.  Still waiting for snow.  May get a little on the weekend.  I haven’t been out much to even take photos, so this one will have to tie you over. ;)

I love my red PF Flyers!

Love Is In The Air

Happy Valentine’s Day 2015.

While out and about today I found these etched into a dock on the Spring I frequent.  Etching hearts and your love’s name into tree trunks and wood benches, docks or even spray painting on buildings has been going on for a very long time.  Confessing your love to the world…….

Enjoy your weekend!

Watching the Tide

I just love taking photos.  I am a beginner by all means.  I have been running from editing photos, mostly because I’m cheap and also because I do not understand the apps.

But today I found a simple and affordable one that I am trying out. So you, Dear Readers, are here to see my first edit – whatever that means.  This was taken a few years ago in Cape May County, New Jersey.  The original was grayer…….

Enjoy!

Ten Years Ago

Ten years ago, this week, we returned from an unforgettable trip to mainland China.  It was amazing.  It was cold.  It was the Chinese New Year.

Here are of few pics I took.

Enjoy!

A talented filmmaker friend made an insipiring documentary short film on my dancing with the elderly. Hope you’ll take a moment to watch!

This is an inspiring video from a fellow blogger. May all who watch this get touched in a deeper way as I have. Use your gifts, Friends. There are people out there who need you.

After browsing through Google News and then reading some blogs I follow….

After seeing some negative posts with no hope – from the news mostly and few from fellow bloggers…..

I choose to think on things from a happier perspective.  Here is a great song from an amazing singer/song writer from the past, Roger Miller.  Two videos to share with you of the same song.

I hope these give you a smile on your face to start the weekend off right.  And I do hope this song gets stuck in your head.  That’s not a bad thing….

Enjoy!
