Thank-you friends, for your heartfelt messages you left in the last post. So, as you know, I dashed off to the mountains for a short little getaway. I needed this like you have no idea. And staying in a place you don’t even really desire to leave just to keep yourself busy is such a […]

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… . […]

Why cleaning in small increments wins this race.

We recently had a little mini heat wave in our area… and boy, did this Canadian made out of wax not manage so well! Yesterday I hibernated inside our little travel trailer parked beside the house.

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 […]

Frame an old mirror with barnwood

Frame an old mirror with barnwood I’ve always desired a cool looking tall mirror in the corner of my bedroom. Remember my empty corners post? I’ve always felt this bedroom corner needed a tall mirror on an angle, which proved to be a challenge. So I thought of buying a new fancier mirror at a store. […]
