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 […]

How to survive things you can’t change.

Pallet sofa sign fabric post HERE Every morning, I bring my coffee out to the pallet wood sofa to begin my day. This is the spot where I linger a little too long, waiting until the mental morning fog lifts. It usually takes about 2 cups… This little spot became my BFF. It was always there to […]

The merits of being indecisive.

read

Welcome to my little scattered brain indecisive world…. and now, accompanying blog post. Normally I build a blog post around a start and end to something I’ve experienced, as a means of inspiring another that may need to travel the same road. However, (at the moment I’m writing this) this is not the case. Nope. […]

A new walking trail, travel musings and a health update.

Last night I watched this fascinating several part show on TV (through Shaw On Demand) called Walking The Nile. (Amazon affiliate link) It was about a guy that walked along the Nile River, regarded as the longest in the world, from start to finish taking 9 months. 9 MONTHS! He bought his own camels, traversed through the Sahara […]

When the river runs dry.

Hello there! Wow, it feels good to tap some keys again! You may or may not have noticed I took a week off from all things blog. I could see my own tap was just running outta water and my mind needed to just live life without blogging about it for a spell. The little break […]

Getting stuff done with the 20 Second Rule.

read

There are certain tasks throughout the day that I stumble over. Yet there are those things that I jump right into without barely a though. Hmmm… why is that?! I originally thought it was because I just enjoy doing some things more than others. Such as, it’s no effort to jump on my bike each evening, […]

For those afraid to start living again after crisis mode.

Ever hear of the phrase, “It’s always easier giving advice, rather than taking it.”? Well, I needed advice. So I wrote myself a Dear Abby styled letter. And then I answered it with an accumulation of advice I received from a course and therapy. I truly hope it helps anyone that needs it! Here goes… . […]

Ditching stress through the art of doing fun stuff.

read

Being that I bike ride nearly every evening, you’d think I’d see the same things each day while on the same trail. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth.  Through a ‘mindful’ course I’ve been taking, it’s really taught me to focus on something specific. And this special trait has me seeing the bike trail in […]

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 […]

Cleaning up the corners, outdoors and within.

read

I am rather proud of me. I use to work all day, then all evening. Or even late into the night to compensate for day appointments. Workworkwork. These days, my regular routine is much different. Much. After dinner, I get outdoors and walk or bike or both. Then I come into the house, shower, then basically collapse […]
