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!

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?


My website is back up!!!  Thanks to my wonderful web master!  Please let me know if you see this post and I’ll be up and running again!



Growing up in Houston, Texas, I always looked forward to the “Azalea Trail” each spring.  Now I have a mini azalea trail in our new backyard.  Our home is situated on an acre of land the back part of which is full of huge azalea bushes, camelia and holly.  That’s what we’ve uncovered thus far.  I love nothing better than getting my hands in the soil and planting a garden so I’ve got lots of plans for both the back and front yard.


For now I’m enjoying the pop of fuschia as blooms add a spark of color to a gray February day.  It’s peaceful….something very important in my life these days.  Did I mention we’re adding a chicken coop so we can have fresh eggs?  I’ll be sharing that project with you and all of the outdoor plans as things take shape.  In the middle of the back part of the yard we’re putting a quiet little Zen garden for meditation and alone time.  On the inside we’re still unpacking boxes.  I have a goal of unpacking and organizing/storing 3-4 boxes a day.  I used to have a lot more stamina than I do now so I pace myself and know I’ll be here for years to come.  There is nothing to hurry for!  When I realized that being in a rush about everything is a sort of fear that time is running out it made me stop and think about relaxing and letting life show me it’s plan.  There is something comforting about letting go.

It’s Monday!  You have a blank canvas!  What will you fill it with?

I have loved being back in the proverbial blogging saddle this past week!  I’m hearing from readers and friends for the first time in months.  My creative spirit is coming to the fore again.  Thanks to all of my readers for being patient with me!  Life is coming together here in our new home.  I’m looking forward to continuing my adventure and sharing it with you!  In the meantime, sit back and relax….listen to this wonderful music and have a peaceful Sunday!
