Blogging, Birthday celebrations, close friends, and a heavy workload

Blogging, Birthday celebrations, close friends, and a heavy workload

Blogging my way out of fear state Whew I missed a few blogging days.  Not the intention of a monthly blogging challenge surely.  But what I have learned about the daily blogging challenge are: Blogging is not as big a deal as I had made it out to be in my head.  Truly, it is possible to do it regularly. You don’t have to worry about SEO.  Its nice but as some other websites suggested…there are companies out there dedicated…

Work, sacral, doodling

Work, sacral, doodling

Blogging for the challenge tonight. Won’t even share. Cause the sharing part isn’t the challenge. The writing is. So I’m writing. It’s been a long day of work, good but long. Not enough time for play. But I did get the study in for the Sacral chakra. To come to realize I have some work to do there. Im enjoying doodling in my little Chakra journal with my liquid chrome marker. Love that marker. I am giving watercolors another go….

Garden Tour Spring 2018 – part 1

Garden Tour Spring 2018 – part 1

I enjoy gardening as one of my hobbies.  I started gardening about 7 years ago in Colorado. Colorado has very rocky and clay based soil and it’s hard to do in ground gardening so I had an herb garden in containers. I started with one, then 3, then 5. When we moved to Florida almost 5 years ago I was instantly able to grow year round and grow all kinds of new plant types. It’s been a huge learning experience…

Life happens! 1 am arrivals, food poisoning, skittish kitties, and an emergency plumber

Life happens! 1 am arrivals, food poisoning, skittish kitties, and an emergency plumber

Whew, my last 24 hours has been an adventure.  After our exciting, fun filled day in Atlanta we got back on the road and headed toward Savannah to see my mom.  She is at home recovering from an extensive surgery and I haven’t seen her in months. It’s about a 4 hour drive between the two cities so we headed out early with the intention to stay the night near my mom before heading home today.  It was nice to…

Spring break in Atlanta!

Spring break in Atlanta!

For the last decade I have been traveling to Atlanta for work and my son (Dorian) has been asking to go. So this year we decided to make that happen since we are running out of forced family fun time…he is already 17 and so much less interested in family vacation. Since it’s his spring break we took advantage and hit the road to see family and be tourists. I would have never thought  that Atlanta was a spring break…

Q3 2017 – life updates

Q3 2017 – life updates

It’s tiresome to say life gets busy.  While it does it is so important to make time for important things like living life.  When I started this blog in early 2017 I started to do all the research about running a successful blog and all the things…all the posts, the marketing, the sharing, the rules.  Oh the rules…so many rules that over time I became paralyzed.  I lost the site and had to rebuild, it was hard to reengage and…

A little bit of history and a good ephemera story

A little bit of history and a good ephemera story

Last Saturday I went ephemera hunting at an antique mall. Not something I do regularly. Or even occasionally. Actually it was the first time I did it. The antique mall I went to was pretty decent and had a good bit of vendor stands. And one of them was dedicated to ephemera for art journaling. Total score!!!! I probably spent 30 minutes just looking through all the pictures and post cards and stuff looking for those few bits that inspired…

Sometimes Life Just Gets Busy….

Sometimes Life Just Gets Busy….

It’s been a while since I have been able to sit and put thought to paper. There are a lot of things in my life that make it very busy times. Work has been super crazy busy and taking my creative energy and the list of things to do never seems to get shorter. I could (maybe should) be working this weekend. Currently building a new database and process enhancement. Right on schedule and so needed but so many details…

Relaunch of the site – may it run faster, smarter, and be more enjoyable

Relaunch of the site – may it run faster, smarter, and be more enjoyable

I have launched and relaunched this site over many years. Each iteration better than the last but never filled with content because I could never quite get the site right. My last attempt was the beginning of January and I was able to get a fairly decent site built.  But it was too slow to browse and very frustrating to add content to. So here I am again at relaunch stage. We decided to change domain providers to one that accommodates…
