Simple Sundays


Simple Sundays

It’s a gentle Sunday morning with so much to be grateful for!  My brother and his wife have been here with us all weekend celebrating family and life.  I wish we lived closer to each other but the times we do get share are that much more special because of the distance that separates us.

We’ve enjoyed great food and libation with plenty of time to talk and take care of things my parents need.

I chose a rather long play list today for you to enjoy.  Beautiful piano music!  Have a peaceful, loving Sunday!

What a beautiful way to start a Sunday.  One of my favorite songs by such talented young people!  Enjoy!


As a blogger I share my writing with my readers.  But there are always boundaries as to how much of my personal life I share.  I have always written this blog as a form of creative therapy.  Over the past four years my laptop had seen many doctor’s offices and hospital rooms.  But I rarely shared that with you.

Now it has become routine to be taking either my mom, dad or Mr. T to any number of doctors depending on what the need is.

I began “grief” therapy several weeks ago as a means of dealing with all that is happening.  And I have to be honest and admit there are days when I am so overwhelmed by it all I can’t begin to think, much less write.

I felt the need to share this with those of you who have supported and followed me over the years.  I appreciate each of you and want you to know it.

I see life in such a different way now.  The responsibility of caring for my parents and husband is one I never take lightly.  And I have to add that my daughter never ceases to amaze me. Her selfless caring is above anything I have ever seen.  I must have done something right!

Right now I just want to say thank you and let you know how very grateful I am.  A new week has begun!  Please share what your hopes and goals are for today!  Keep on keeping on!

I chose this song today because our country is navigating troubled waters.  I will not take sides but I will pray that reason, truth and justice will prevail!




Still trying to fine tune my blog site!

A Blank Canvas

This is a very small section of our backyard.  Our home is situated on an acre of beautiful grounds that literally make one feel as though they are in a park.  The azalea bushes are mature and laden with blooms right now.  Closer to the house it is very shady.  The previous owner tried and tried to get grass to grow.  I decided not to fight it and plan to put a series of gardens in made up of local plants that thrive in the shade.  If you’re a reader and you live nearby, feel free to add anything you think might add to what I’m already planning.  And, yes, there will be photographs as this all gets going!  I’m ready to get my hands in the dirt!

Here’s what I’m planning:  Hosta, Maiden Hair Fern (It grows like crazy here!), Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile), Begonia, Impatiens, Caladium and my favorite, Black Magic Elephant Ears.

Stay tuned as this project gets going!  There will be many pictures and stories to tell.  You’ll also get to follow as we place a “Zen” garden in the back part of our property for quiet times of meditation.

Loving life in Louisiana!  My laptop is still a bit slow and not doing what it used to do….any suggestions on the best deal on a new one are very welcome!  Happy Tuesday and thanks for following!


This is NOT a post!  It’s a picture taken locally that says…”It’s a new day….ENJOY”!  It’s a present….the present!  What will you do with it?
