Day 31 of 365 Days of Cats!

Day 31 of 365 days of cats! This is so inspired by my yoga experience this morning. My cat, Piper, who has her own yoga mat, thought it would be fun to play London Bridge with me during my headstands in Ashtanga and there are a lot of them! She would wait for me to…

Day 30 of 365 Days Of Seed Catalogs

Day 30 of 365 days of Seed Catalogs! I love love love the planning process of our garden. All the lists I get to make! And I love lists! I go online, order my seed catalogs with giddy excitement. I wait patiently at first and then as the days pass I feel like a child…

Day 29 of 365 Days To Find Your Path

Day 29 of 365 days to find your path. You probably already know that path by heart or maybe you don’t or maybe you do and don’t realize you do or maybe you do but can’t see how it could be an actual path? I think our paths are directly related to our passion, our…

Day 27 of 365 Days To Find Peace

Day 27 of 365 days to find Peace. And hopefully keep it. I have found Peace in music and love and art, in meditation and in nature. I have found Peace in candles and incense and yoga, only to lose it again. Hide and Seek is a game I once played with Peace a lot…

Day 26 of 365 Family Game Days

Day 26 of 365 Family Game Days. First off, the family doesn’t have to be one thing or another. Your family is made up of the people you are closest to. The people who get you, the people you get, the people you vibe with. For me, that’s Sparky, Sky, Rainy and Michael and of…

Day 25 of 365 Days of Slow Jazz…free verse poetry

Day 25 of 365 days of slow jazz. Slow jazz, candles, wine, just chilling on the sofa while it rains or snows or the sun just sets and the evening rolls in painting the sky in deep shades indigo and fuchsia. Hygge. Peace. Comfort. Ease. Life at the end of the day. Which leads me…

Day 24 of 365 Days To Take Time To Just Watch It Rain

Day 24 of 365 days, one of which to just take some time to watch it rain. For me rainy days are conducive to hygge. To settling in, wearing my softest clothes, listen to my favorite slow jazz and make art while drinking coffee from a never ending all day long flow of the delicious…

Day 23 of 365 Days To Try Something New

Day 23 of 365 Days to try something new. Why not? Or maybe a new way of doing something routine. Staying comfortable with a little change. The same routine but a little bit different.  Or just go for it and jump right in trying something we didn’t know we could do until we tried it….

Day 22 of 365 Days With Candles To Light

Day 22 of 365 days with candles to light. I think nothing cozies up a room faster than candlelight. I like the whole process of candlelight. I like making the candles and I like shopping for candles. The ones with just the right scent. I seem to gravitate more toward the aromas of the kitchen,…

Day 21 of 365 Days of Hot Cocoa

Day 21 of 365 days of hot cocoa! Or at least until winter is over. Baby, it’s cold outside (way out in the country here in NC) and it’s Monday both of which could probably benefit from some comfort. Hot cocoa to the rescue! Rich and chocolatey and jazzed up your favorite way with ……

Day 20 of 365 Days of New Perspectives

Day 20 of 365 days of new perspectives. Big ways or small ways but in some way, I want to try to look at things from a new perspective, think even more outside the box or maybe inside the box since I don’t often look in there. I wonder how one goes about looking with…
