Rest Well, Sadie

Sadie’s favorite day bed

Hey there.  Hope all y’all are doing well.  This post is a little longer.  Grab a cuppa if you like, find a comfy spot and help me celebrate the life of my beloved Sadie Bri.  She crossed the Rainbow Bridge Tuesday afternoon, so I need to honor this beautiful companion and remember our life together.

Change in the Wind

Hey y’all!   How’s everybody doing?  I’m doing great… just a bit over-busy.  What’s new?  School starts tomorrow – Tuesday.  I’m taking 18 hours of Theology classes, including my first ever course in Latin.   I’ve had several Spanish classes, and did some medical transcription in the past, so hopefully Latin won’t kill me right off the bat.  😉  The weather’s changing, but it can’t make up its mind what it’s going to do.  Saturday it was in the mid 70’s and delightful!   Today, we were back into the 90’s and suffocating from the high humidity that came with it today.  Anyway, grab a cuppa or glass of something cold, to suit your weather, and find a comfy spot to relax!  Continue reading

Third Quarter Slump

Hey there!  How is everybody?  Hope all y’all are doing well!  It’s 88 degrees here, and the cicadas are singing!  They and their crunchy cast off shells are all over the place.  Sadie dog is so funny with them.  She’ll investigate one- very gingerly, yet intently sniffing it; then another one in the grass surprises her and she jumps backward stiff-legged like a cat.  It’s hilarious!  With that giggle, grab an ice-cold glass of sweet tea or lemonade, find a comfy spot to relax and let’s talk!  Continue reading

Breakfast with Richard

Hey y’all!   I know, two days in a row!  How is everybody?  Hopefully all y’all are doing well.  It’s two weeks after Easter, and it’s SNOWING here.  Yep.   The snow is really wet, but it’s light, like pretty frosting on the grass and trees.   It did kill the beautiful magnolia blossoms, though.  One of the largest magnolias I’d ever seen was up here in Ohio.  Grab a cuppa or a glass of tea, and find a comfy spot to relax.  I’m in the mood to share.

Permission Granted!

Hey there!   I know it’s been almost a month!  Life is crazy, but it’s all okay.   Grab a cuppa something, and I’ll tell you more about the adventure.  The weather is crazy here, each week it seems like we have snow and temps in the 50’s a few days later.  It snowed today, is supposed to reach upper 40’s this weekend, low 50’s all next week and rainy, then snow again.  College is quite the adventure, too.  Find a comfy spot, and I’ll tell you more!

College Craziness :-)

Hey there!   How is everyone?  Hope all y’all are doing well!   It’s been a bit crazy daisy here!  Fortunately, we only got about 6-8″ of snow last Friday.  It was bitterly cold here last week, but Sadie and I survived.  It’s chilly now, but was ‘warm’ this afternoon – 44!  So, grab a cuppa something warm, find a comfy place to snuggle, and I’ll get all y’all updated!

Resolutions already tested!

Hey there!  How are all y’all?  I’m doing pretty well, although life is not like I thought it would be about now, lol.  Hopefully your New Year is shaping up beautifully, so far.  I realize we’re only a week in!  So, find a cuppa something.  Let’s see, today it’s Orange-Hazelnut Dark Hot Chocolate.  Then, find a comfy spot.  I’m on the sofa, dog curled up next to me, with my new favorite blankie – a fleece and super soft velour that I got for Christmas.  I’m settled in for a few minutes while I write.  Much calmer than the rest of this year has been already!  Continue reading
