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


Inappropriate response

Hey there!  How are all y’all?  Hope y’all are doing well.   It’s been crazy here, dealing with selling a house halfway across the country, but I have truly awesome people on both ends and we’ve overcome every obstacle, I think. As the truck prepares to bring yet another load of boxes and furniture, I’ve been frantically trying to unpack everything from the last trip.  I have a few pieces that are very special because they came from overseas.  Every trip was different, every one life-changing.  Grab a cuppa, and find a relaxing spot.  I’m looking right now at a carved olive wood statue of Continue reading

Adventuring in Iconography

Hey y’all!   How’s everybody doing?  I’m doing great!  I so love it here.  Hope y’all are doing as well.   Grab a glass of something cold to drink, find a dry comfy spot (it’s raining here) and I’ll give you another glimpse into the adventure!  The Lord does not make mistakes – even if we are clueless as to what His purpose could possibly be.  If you’re a regular, you know about my “Adventure”.  If you need to catch up, you can read some older posts.  In the meantime, grab a glass of something cold, find a dry and comfy spot to relax, and I’ll tell you more about the adventure!   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. Continue reading


Hey y’all!  How is everybody?   Hopefully y’all are staying warm and dry, and things are good.   Hopefully everybody is healthy and happy.  Hopefully 2016 has begun with you searching for your socks – because God has already blessed them right off of you!    😉  I’m on a writing binge today.  I’ve cranked out two posts already, and this is number three.  But God is doing some amazing things in my life, and I wanted to share them with you!  So, if you’re new here, find a cuppa something you like and a comfy spot to relax a minute.  Even if you’re not new here, you know the drill.  Continue reading


Hey there, y’all!   Are you done with Christmas yet?   Our family isn’t.  We have at least one more celebration out-of-state to go.   But it’s been good.  It’s been good to be with friends and family and Jesus.  Hopefully you’ve had some wonderful times with those you love, too.  I was traveling so much, the season was sort of a blur, but we managed.  As I write this, I should be packing the house, but I’m tired.   So, I’ll do something physically easier…  I’ll write for you!  Find a comfy spot and a cuppa something.  Hopefully you can relax a bit!
