A wonderful reader suggested that I make my Trapped Souls post into a series once I remembered what the hell I wanted to write about. Well, I still don't remember exactly what prompted me to save the title but when I saved 'Never a Purpose or Reason' I knew I needed to do at least…Read more Trapped Souls – Pt. 2 Never a Purpose or Reason
I did something a couple of weeks ago that I promised myself I wouldn't do. I started a second crochet project before I finished the one I was working on. This was a rule I put into place after it took me 10 years to finish an afghan. And, for the most part, it's a…Read more Stitch by Stitch – Pt. 13
Sometimes I get ideas for a post and I save a title but forget to add a note about the context. Then, when I go to actually write the post, I have no idea what I wanted to write. Perhaps some of you bloggers can relate... Anyway, it happened again. All I wrote was 'Trapped…Read more Trapped Souls
It's September and we're still here... Because sometimes still being here is something to be proud of. So I thought it would be a good time to share some recent photos that I took in my yard and the park. I love finding trees and branches that look like animals if you look at them…Read more NGTS – Pt. 80

I'm on my second week of eating meals from Freshly. If you're not familiar with them it's a fairly new company that ships single-serving, prepared meals. They are refrigerated instead of frozen and there's no cooking involved. You just reheat it in the microwave, put it on a plate, and eat it. What's nice about…Read more Are We Living in an Age of Convenience?
So last week we had a bad thunderstorm roll through and it took out our power for about an hour or so. That wasn't too much of a problem. What caused us fits was the fact that our Internet was down for 2 days. I'm not talking satellite or DSL. We have cable Internet. In…Read more NGTS – Pt. 79
Every so often I go down the 'what might have been' road. It usually leads to tears and regret. And takes me days to recover afterward. Sometimes it just makes me angry. This time was different. Now that I know my mother is dead this type of thinking just leads me to sad resignation. It…Read more You could have been a part of this…
If you've been reading my blog for long then you may have read a few of my recurring themed posts - 'NGTS' and 'Pretty Freaking Awesome'. They are wonderful examples of how creativity can take over sometimes and lead us down paths we never even knew were there. I use these posts to share things…Read more Lyrics to Live By
