Podcasts have become my new escape from the endless bad political news coming from CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NPR, or any of the local channels. I listen to podcasts while I am waiting for my daughter after school, endlessly walking the dogs, or while I’m chopping numerous vegetables and herbs for dinner. I especially need an… Continue reading Podcasts, Cooking, & Journals, Oh My!
I have approximately 1/2 hour to write a post and get it out today to stay on the path toward my goal of writing two blog posts per week, and posting them on Tuesdays and Saturdays from now until the end of the year. Failure to follow-through will have the consequence of either getting a… Continue reading Quick & Dirty (But Not in the X-rated Sense)
Creating goals and resolutions for myself has never worked in all my many, many years on this planet. I may stick with a goal for a month or two, if I’m lucky, and then the reality is that I grow bored of being so good.

Once a Month

It’s been an extremely stressful month, truthfully, mainly because of the health and safety of two of my girls. Let me explain and just jump in with some of the reasons I… Continue reading 6 Reasons to Smile September 2017
For the longest time I’ve been trying to find ways in which to help myself stay on the right path for my long list of goals. I’ve listened to paraliminals, read books, bought calendars to list out what I plan to do, meditated, told people my plans, etc., but nothing has worked for me.

Being a writer is sometimes hard (or maybe it’s always hard). Today I visited a writing prompt website in order to get ideas for today’s blog post. I wrote my own list of writing prompts at a cabin in Oregon, but it’s upstairs on my night stand and I’m downstairs on my comfy couch with… Continue reading Unrequited Love Poem
