August 21, 2021 – Overwhelmed

My friends, despite a concerted effort to go to sleep and postpone writing my blog until the morning, I have failed. I went to bed for a time, and while I was laying there, did nothing more than toss and turn (left to right and back again). As a result, I decided it best toContinue reading “August 21, 2021 – Overwhelmed”

While out and about (walking my dog) today, I noticed these beautiful flowers (with the mountainside in the background) and couldn’t help but snap a few photos. I rarely bring anything along when I walk my dog, aside from a hanky and a roll of poop bags, but I actually brought my phone today (justContinue reading “August 20, 2021 – Photo”

August 19, 2021 – The Great Unknown

The last couple of days have been tough, my friends. I feel a great deal of apprehension about this upcoming move. There are so many unknowns spiraling around in my head, that I keep getting overwhelmed and feel like shutting down (i.e.; taking a nap and forgetting about my troubles). The immediate unknown I’m facingContinue reading “August 19, 2021 – The Great Unknown”

I don’t mean to bore you with another photo of clouds, but I couldn’t resist pulling out my camera when I peered outside this evening. The cloud formations have been so beautiful and unusual lately. I wonder if the reason I find them so delightful to gaze upon is because they’re actually visible (and notContinue reading “August 18, 2021 – Photo”

August 17, 2021 – Small World

Considering all of the ads I’ve posted in recent days, it’s not surprising that I’d run into someone I know. I’ve got ads (on Craigslist, Facebook, and the local paper) for couches and dining sets, inflatable river tubes and party lights, elliptical trainers and workout benches, chairs and end tables, and several items that IContinue reading “August 17, 2021 – Small World”

These little beauties sprang out of my Hosta plant the other day. I love Hosta plants because they attract the hummingbirds and (most importantly) require minimal care (low maintenance). No matter how much I neglect my garden, I can count on these guys returning each and every year and doing surprisingly well. Actually, I probablyContinue reading “August 16, 2021 – Photo”

August 15, 2021 – Wheeling and Dealing

According to people who are aware of recent events in my life (preparing for the ‘big’ move), I should be excited. Why wouldn’t I be? Everything I’ve asked for, I’ve been granted. I wanted to get my house under contract, it happened. I needed the inspection to pass, and it did. The appraisal? I’m notContinue reading “August 15, 2021 – Wheeling and Dealing”

These yellow flowers are so lovely to look at! I planted them several years ago, and each year, they take up a little more space in the garden. I have no idea what they’re called but I like to refer to them as ‘paper flowers’ because they look like something delicately crafted out of paper.Continue reading “August 14, 2021 – Photo”

August 13, 2021 – Spammers, scammers, fakes and flakes.

If you’ve had an opportunity to watch the documentary on Netflix called ‘Misha and the Wolves’, you’ll understand when I say how well it ties into today’s theme. I’m not going to give anything away but I recommend you check it out. It’s very well done. Anyway, I just finished watching it with my husbandContinue reading “August 13, 2021 – Spammers, scammers, fakes and flakes.”

Do you ever get the sensation that someone or ‘something’ is watching you? I had that happen today and sure enough, when I glanced over to my right, I noticed a set of eyes taking a keen interest in my activities and whereabouts at the time. Are all dogs this way? Before we replaced ourContinue reading “August 12, 2021 – Photo”
