September 26, 2021 – The Number Two

I feel compelled to write about ‘the number two’ today for a variety of reasons, the primary reason being that I only have two more days left in my commitment to publish something daily on my blog and then I’ll have successfully finished out the year. Now, if you’re anything like me, when you readContinue reading “September 26, 2021 – The Number Two”

I think I’m cursed when it comes to cell phone cameras! I don’t understand, but half the time I use the camera option on my cell phone, when I get a good look at the photo, it’s all distorted and resembles a painting. Since that’s what I used tonight to get ‘the shot’, I guessContinue reading “September 25, 2021 – Photo”

September 24, 2021 – Highs and Lows

My friends, I feel like I’ve been on an emotional thrill ride that has yet to conclude. Ever since my husband and I made the decision to move, I have experienced (far too many to count) exhilarating, take-your-breath-away highs and disappointing, mind-numbing lows. With family matters alone, we have both dealt with difficult situations involvingContinue reading “September 24, 2021 – Highs and Lows”

September 22, 2021 – Sorting out the details.

Boy, buying a home is nothing like any other transaction. My mom used to say, “Growing old isn’t for sissies.” I think the same could be said for buying a house. It will test you in every possible way, and if it doesn’t break you, consider yourself lucky. I thought my husband and I wereContinue reading “September 22, 2021 – Sorting out the details.”

I took this photo several years ago for a ‘study of glass’ segment in my photography class. It reminds me of when I was stationed in Germany a hundred or so years ago. Ok, I might have exaggerated the timeline a bit, but it sure feels like it was a hundred years ago. When IContinue reading “September 21, 2021 – Photo”

September 20, 2021 – When the stars align.

I had every intention of writing about ‘anticipation’ tonight, but things didn’t turn out as planned. With little hope, we submitted our offer (for the house I fell in love with) to the seller this afternoon. I also included a ‘love letter’ (a letter letting the seller know how much we love the house). OurContinue reading “September 20, 2021 – When the stars align.”

Horseback riding was one of my favorite pastimes before I learned that horses are not to be trusted! A horse can appear so gentle and tranquil but turn your back for one second, and it will transform into a wild steed, whinnying wildly while rearing up on its hind legs and thrashing with its front!Continue reading “September 19, 2021 – Photo”

September 18, 2021 – Countdown

Somehow, some way, I have nearly fulfilled my promise to you, my readers. In the beginning, when I initially made the commitment to post daily, I was facing 365 days. It seemed insurmountable. However, I am now facing a mere ten. In ten more days, I can either continue what I’ve been doing (posting everyContinue reading “September 18, 2021 – Countdown”

This is one of the flowers that was sent to my father-in-law, in memory of his wife. The funeral was today and I have to admit, it really was lovely. It was tough to see so many people grieving but it’s part of letting go. I was stoic through the whole ceremony because I alreadyContinue reading “September 17, 2021 – Photo”
