Lessons from the fall rain

read

I’m beginning to appreciate the many layers of fall. It seems like yesterday that I was moping about the heat of summer leaving us. It packed its shades and sunscreen and just flat out left our country seemingly overnight, leaving leaves all over the place in complete haste. The nerve! I guess that meant while I moped about being home […]

Sat AM… I totally forgot to post the weekend link party! My apologies. Let’s give this weekend a miss and continue next week. Happy DIYing!

When I glanced outside this AM, I noticed the clouds moved in. Going out onto the patio with my first coffee of the day, the air was crisp! How can that be? Yesterday was one of the hottest days we’ve had this summer yet! Signs that summer is coming to a close are looming ahead. […]

Last night I watched this fascinating several part show on TV (through Shaw On Demand) called Walking The Nile.

It would seem you are somewhat restricted for studio space.  Would you ever consider a small cottage home on some land […]

Inspired by my tranquil Othello cabin riverfront getaway

Happy summer, friends! How is your summer shaping up? I’ll be completely honest… once I returned from my much needed little extended getaway, I wasn’t sure where my mind was. It was stuck somewhere in the middle of complete escape vacation mode wondering where to take off next, all the way to start sharing my […]

The lazy bike ride and the $56 doll.

I took nearly a week off from my beloved bike rides. A WEEK! I didn’t mean to take a week off. It just kinda happened.  When I was returning from the rides, it’s like I felt like collapsing. One evening I forced myself up the stairs, and threw myself on the bed fully clothed for […]

The Garden of Eden bike ride, and on setting boundaries

read

On the exercise front, I’ve still been walking or biking rain or shine daily. Actually, I took two days off recently. One because I went on a 2 hour bike ride the day before that totally did me in, and two, because I decided to stay home one evening and pressure wash the front driveway […]
