Retro Commercials! Love Them!

Today I jumped in the Way Back Buggy and watched retro commercials on YouTube  . Isn’t that funny…when I was a kid I probably couldn’t have cared less about the commercials but now they bring back the memories a lot like the way music does! Oh my gosh, suddenly my gypsy mom is in the…

Kids…Growing Up… Is Hard On Us Parents

It’s the day after Thanksgiving so I guess some ventured out for the beginning of the shopping season. Brave souls you are! I didn’t even leave the house except to walk around outside that is.  I know we’ll have to do it eventually but I hate shopping. I really do. I love yard sales and…

Home Is…

There are certain little things that make me feel homey you know all comfy cozy and safe (besides seeing my little family gathered together in the living room). Country living is one of things things. Stopping to let chickens cross the road and never wondering why. The bray of the donkey down the road. The…

Holy Turkey Leg Bat Man!

Well, it’s all said, done and eaten. Well, not all eaten. There’s enough left overs to feed everyone again and again and again. Our turkey was 22 pounds! Holy turkey leg Bat Man! I wrapped up a turkey leg all by itself that would make one of those medieval  kings drool! I made lunch all…

Thanksgiving Memories and Countdown to Turkey Day

It’s almost here! The biggest eating day of the year! I’ve been flooded with memories all day long today. I love memories don’t you? In second grade our teacher had us shove our desks to the sides of the room and down the center she spread out a long cloth or something and we all…

What Is It About Today?

It’s staggering this afternoon just how grateful I feel for the day. Nothing in particular about the day mind you. The same old same old. Cooked, did laundry, mailed art to Australia (ok, so I don’t do that everyday 🙂 ) but you get the jest. I don’t know maybe it’s just how the house…

Sunday Evening…Rain Is Falling…and…Life is Good

Okay, so here’s how it usually goes…I wake up feeling excited about the day, really inspired and setting goals for the day and everything. I think I have a plan, a direction, I know what I’m going to do and how to do it. Then I pull my still a bit drowsy and dreamy self…

I Think I Just Had My A-Ha! Moment!! Wow!!

I’m sitting here on the sofa in my studio meditating like I do every morning but this time has been very, very, very different. This time after meditating I continued to sit and listen and opened the notes on my iPad and began to type and I’m so glad I did because my Life has…

Simple Country Living=Peace Personified

So, I got up this morning at 4 am. I thought it was 5 which would have been 6 before the time change a few weeks back but it wasn’t five at all, it was indeed 4 and I was already up thinking about art and coffee and taking a shower, so I stayed up. It…

Thursday’s Highlights….

So, dear friends, I have worked my booty off today. I rearranged the living room which included cleaning out and moving my extremely heavy Narnia wardrobe! I started this little project around 3:20 this afternoon and finished around 7:30 this evening. Then I made dinner…heated up oyster stew I made for lunch for my seafood…

Deep Thoughts & Pomegranate Seeds

So, I’m sitting here now by my bay window, James Ingram singing on my Pandora, money drawing incense burning, heater making things toasty and cozy in my studio as my family chills nearby…Wayne’s reading, probably with a kitten in his lap and Sky just brought me a fresh cup of java and is now watching…
