I had my first “test” today on following through with my intention. It was something so simple, but deceptively difficult. Continue reading ‘Be present’

Happy New Year!

And so a new year begins.  Quietly for me.  For the past few days, I’ve been crocheting and drinking tea and thinking.

I don’t do new year’s resolutions.  It never seems to work past January, and I put enough stress on myself without adding a resolution.  But my sister-in-law made a facebook post for her blog that caught my eye.  In it, she asked if her readers had picked an intention for 2018.  There’s a link to a list of words to consider.  That got me thinking.  (Remember?  I’m very good at thinking.)  What if Continue reading ‘Happy New Year!’

To make or not to make…

I’m in a conundrum.

I started dealing with Christmas presents this past weekend – wrapping gifts and planning out what I still need to shop for.  I had this great plan to make about half my gifts this year. It would have been more, but Continue reading ‘To make or not to make…’

Thoughts

It has been a long time, hasn’t it?  Almost 2 years since my last blog post, and it popped into my head a few days ago that maybe I should revive it.  I’m not really sure who would be paying attention at this point, but I love writing and sharing my version of the world around me.  So here I am, sitting at the computer, spilling out my thoughts.

We used to work together years ago, and it was so awesome to be able to catch up She gave me the ring for Christmas; she knows me very well! I mentioned how happy I am in my current job, and she said she always knew that I was meant to train people. It got me to thinking about something I did 7 years ago.

Meet the new furbaby

I was incredibly lonely after Spotacus passed away. For the first time in 15 years, I was truly living alone. Before I adopted Autumn, I had roommates. When the roommates moved on, I had the cats. It was so quiet. I hated being alone with my thoughts.

A tale of three cats

I’m back!  Miss me?  When I wrote that post last July, I didn’t anticipate that my break would be this long.  However, life gets in the way and suddenly it’s 9 months later.  So much has happened that I can’t cram it all into one post.  I’ll start with the events that prompted me to start writing again…my beloved cats.
