Friendship

Friendship is good. We all need to have friends and especially the ones that “get us”. Those kindred spirits. The ones where a spoken word sometimes isn’t necessary, they just know. There are so many levels of friendship.  Some refer to you as their best friend but you hardly know them and somehow they thinkContinue reading “Friendship”

People You Can Meet in The Burg

I am mostly a homebody. I enjoy staying home and doing projects – reading, writing, breathing fresh air in the yard with my doggies, bird watching, photography, and so on…… But I also know that to remain open to life I need to get out and about. So yesterday I met up with a friendContinue reading “People You Can Meet in The Burg”

Love is the Key

This season of my life has been hard. I lost my best pup the beginning of November and then came to the close of semester as I wrapped up caring for our youngest grand daughter. I was grieving. Big time. I had cared for our granddaughters for the most of the last five years ofContinue reading “Love is the Key”

Life is Beautiful

We moved to this lovely mid-west town, affectionately known as The Burg, two and a half years ago. Little did we know that we would fall in love with this town and it’s people. Sure, it has it’s frustrations like all relationships, but the people here and the countryside puts you right back into perspective. ShortlyContinue reading “Life is Beautiful”

Out With The Old…….

Goodbye 2016

How was 2016 for you? I can’t complain. The political stuff that filled my Facebook newsfeed was quite annoying and tiring. I really just want happiness on my newsfeed……live puppies safe at home, as opposed to lost puppies or abused puppies. I want flowers and birds, as opposed to dead rainforests and killing the beesContinue reading “Goodbye 2016”

Dusty Dreams

There are about nineteen days left in 2016. I never make New Year resolutions, but I do always look forward to what may be in store for us/me in the upcoming new year. Ever an adventurer…… My future at this point is rather swelling with fear  anticipation. Last Thursday was the last day of my son’sContinue reading “Dusty Dreams”

Another Cup Please…….

I just poured myself another cup of coffee. Join me as I sip and ponder, music playing in the background, thoughts circling and swirling in the lyrics with a sense of assurance and breathing in and out the colors of hope. We have lived in what we call The Burg for just a hair overContinue reading “Another Cup Please…….”
