Shiver

The temperatures are finally in the range where I wish I’d planned ahead and worn my jacket in the morning, but still warm enough that I’ll forget that jacket in the afternoon. It’s cool enough that yesterday, meeting a friend to exchange greetings (and dinner), my knees shook as the rain misted us and the […]

A rainbow in the cloudy sky

Sky, the: (reach for it)

I am going to shamelessly steal this blog prompt (so I can keep the streak going) and use it for my own nefarious purposes. I could talk about pretty clouds or rainbows (see the lovely featured image), but what I really wanted to talk about for a moment was “reaching for the sky.” (I wanted […]

Heat

We only have two window air conditioning units in our house and one functioning ceiling fan. There are two floor fans and two desk fans on the first floor, and four floor fans (one for each bedroom and the bathroom) on the second floor. Our house is old and the insulation isn’t wonderful. The windows […]

Risk

This month’s prompt is risk. I have several big projects to tackle if I want my home to be less stressful to me. Cleaning out my garage. Removing some carpeting from the house. Things that there’s a very good chance I’ll do wrong. But I don’t know if I don’t try. And that’s the risk. […]

Sweet.

I’m going to be doing the Blog All About It blog challenge by herding cats & burning soup. If you like to blog, it’s not too late to start! April’s topic – “sweet”. Radical. Awesome. Dude. Sweet. Does that conjure up guys with long hair and surfboards? Skateboards maybe? I don’t do either, but I […]

Luck

I’m going to be doing the Blog All About It blog challenge by herding cats & burning soup . If you like to blog, it’s not too late to start! So, luck’s for March, is it? Okay, then. Four leaf clovers I can’t find them. I’m not that person. I’ve met those people, but I’m not them. Pennies, heads or tails I don’t believe it’s […]

Pink

Pink

I’m going to be doing the Blog All About It blog challenge by herding cats & burning soup because I stumbled on it through another author’s blog and it sounds like is a lot of fun! February’s prompt is pink. This is kind of super appropriate for me because pink is my color. I’ve said for several years that the moment I don’t have to worry […]

Birthday skies

First

I’m going to be doing the Blog All About It blog challenge by herding cats & burning soup because I stumbled on it through another author’s blog and it sounds like a lot of fun! January’s topic is First. There are a lot of Firsts I can talk about today, which makes today a great day to make this post. Today is […]
