Create!

Posted by & filed under my life.

Creating. It’s what drives me. Nothing else is as deep a part of who I am. It’s why the business machine drags me down. Achieve these goals! Use this piece of software! Attend these meetings! Work within these limitations! It’s all so unbelievably stifling. Just leave me alone and let me create. Go away you… Read more »

Simplify

Posted by & filed under my life.

I don’t really have a new year’s resolution, except that i’m continuing to work on simplifying my lifeā€¦or in other words, getting my act together – focusing on the essentials and letting other things go and not letting the uninvited in to take away precious time. Today I took the first step and spent all… Read more »

2012 in pictures

Posted by & filed under my life.

So, I sat down to write a Christmas New Year’s letter, and really, I didn’t know where to begin. So I’ve decided to let pictures from this year tell a story. I spent my year blogging, so if you want to learn about the year, you can read some of my blog posts. Meanwhile, enjoy… Read more »

Posted by & filed under my life.

The Lord said: It isn’t too late. You can still return to me with all your heart. – Joel 2:12 I am trying to follow an advent reading calendar – what I found was an official one by the church. But I’ve also added in some devotional readings. And this verse was in my devotional… Read more »

Andy and I are taking dance lessons with a couple of friends. We have one lesson left, and will be signing up for another set of lessons, because we still have soooooo far to go. Tonight, though, was the first time I felt like I was relaxing into the dancing. We were doing the hustle…. Read more »

My Nana

Posted by & filed under my life.

This is my nana – isn’t she adorable? I had two wonderful grandmothers. They both plugged into their grandchildren, they both were fun. For some reason, though, I really had an extra special fondness for my Nana. My father’s mother. I think it’s because she was especially funny and real. While Grandmommy taught us how… Read more »

Reflections on my first Black Friday

Posted by & filed under my life.

I was one of those people who said I would NEVER get up at 4:30/5:00 in the morning to go shopping, no matter how good the deals. You know, definitive declarations usually come back to bite me. Like, I’m pretty sure I said, after Koda, that I’m never getting a puppy again. For instance. So,… Read more »

Thank you, my mountain

Posted by & filed under my life.

I feel like I don’t go on walks or hikes, I go on adventures. And today, I decided to go for a thankful hike on my mountain. Okay, it’s not technically my mountain. But it feels like it is. It is a part of me. I am a part of it. I have been adventuring… Read more »

My morning health

Posted by & filed under health, my life.

I wrote a couple of posts back about my walking buddy. That is part of my morning health – getting exercise! Today I’m writing about my morning “meal.” Yes, it’s a liquid meal, but it’s tailored to give me a bunch of stuff my body needs. There is protein in the almond milk and hemp… Read more »

Snopes and Jesus

Posted by & filed under faith, my life.

I got an email and saw the same posted on Facebook in the last few days – words purported to be spoken as commentary on TV. Funny thing, though, they included words about forwarding the email. Um…suspicious. These days when I get these kind of emails, I go to snopes.com or truthorfiction.com to see what… Read more »
