Home Dec

Howdy!  How is everybody?  Are y’all getting ready for school to start up again?  Some teacher friends are back in their classrooms and the students will be arriving soon.  My classes don’t start again until August 30th.  Hopefully by then the house will be done!  It’s been quite the adventure, but I still love it here.  One of my biggest challenges has been home decor.  I had enough decorative items and furniture to completely furnish two houses of 3 bedrooms each.  Then it all ended up here.  So, I get to pick and choose.   Grab a glass of something cold, and find a relaxing place to sit a minute!  Continue reading

Acts of Worship

Hey everybody!   How’s it going?  Hopefully all y’all are having a great summer.   It’s been busy here, but the house project is about to take a rest.  I’m hoping it will be done by the time school starts.  The current challenge for me is to be still sometimes.  If y’all know me, that’s a very tall order!  I’ve been blessed to read a really good book several times in my life, and it has some of the best advice.

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

Just when you thought it was safe…

Hey, y’all!  I’m ba-ack!   Didja miss me?  I had no idea what I was in for when I jumped onto this rocket ship.  When I look back at the last few days, weeks or months, I just want to hibernate like an ol’ bear and sleep for about six weeks.  Maybe in August, lol.   For inquiring minds who want to know what I’ve been up to, I’ve been up to my eyeballs.   I am seriously writing a book.  I’m calling it “101 Days:  The Homeless Homeowner”.   Find a comfy spot so at least one of us can relax, and grab a cuppa something.  Let me give you the Cliff (or maybe over the cliff?) Notes! 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

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!
