Autumn Update

Autumn Update

Hello, Everyone! I have been enjoying a series of busy and productive days, and I am amazed to find myself coherent enough to spend time writing between other tasks, often into the evenings. Maybe mental clarity is typical for you, and you are thinking, “Yeah, so?” but for me, it is a significant event. I will take advantage of this momentary cognizance and fill you in on why you haven’t heard from me in so long. It has been more…

Longing for Simplicity

Longing for Simplicity

Maybe I’m not a blogger after all. I think I get distracted too easily. In the length of time it has taken me to write those first two sentences, I have jumped out of my seat twice and run to the windows because for several days I have been hearing a noise that sounds like it could be a cat. Or maybe a bird. The trees are so thick with leaves, that’s all I can see no matter where I…

CBD and Pain Relief — How it Helps My Osteoarthritis

CBD and Pain Relief — How it Helps My Osteoarthritis

I had a revelation this morning. Since I am a reasonably shallow person, most of you are not likely to see this as mind-blowing information, but I’m going to share it anyhow because maybe it will help someone. In December 2018, I found out that I have osteoarthritis, and as soon as I shared that little piece of information, I started to receive advice from people with similar issues. One bit of advice came up far more frequently than any…

Dear Tylenol, I’m back but I’m not sticking around.

Dear Tylenol, I’m back but I’m not sticking around.

  Dear Tylenol, I’m back but I’m not sticking around. This will just be a short visit, I’m sure, and then I’ll be on my way. By the way, I never thanked you for the last time you helped me out. I really appreciate you letting me stay for those couple of weeks when Osteoarthritis was giving me a hard time. I don’t know what I would have done without you. Thank you for giving me a comfortable place to…

How to Live a Laptop Lifestyle

How to Live a Laptop Lifestyle

Do you ever just feel like rambling, even though you have absolutely nothing to say? That’s how I feel right now. It’s day 4 of not sleeping and my brain is misfiring. (I know, last week I made a public announcement declaring that I was sleeping well for the first time in my life. It was awesome. Truly amazing. For like ten days or something I enjoyed deep, blissful sleep.) It was a happy place in my life. I hope…

How to Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart

How to Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart

  Yesterday was one of “those” days. You know what I mean. Sometimes before you go to bed at night you say, “Tomorrow I’m going to do thus and such. It’It is going to be a beautiful day and I’m looking forward to doing the things that I’m planning to do.” A wise sister once told me, “We cannot always control our circumstances but we can control our attitude about our circumstances.” That is so true. So how do we…

Idea for Starting a Home Business

Idea for Starting a Home Business

I have never been a big fan of thrift stores, but one year my son was helping with props at a local theater company, and we spent the better part of three months running in and out of thrift stores looking for unique items for an upcoming production. As he searched for articles on his list, I wandered around and sometimes ended up talking to people while I waited. That’s how I ended up with an idea for starting a…

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO ME

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO ME

Nobody actually reads personal blogs, do they? I used to be an avid journalist, but then one day I started to wonder what people would think if they found my journal and started to read. I stopped writing; it was just too personal. Over the years, I tried to pick it up again because writing is how I process my life. That same thought, “What will people think?” kept haunting me. I just can’t do that anymore. Meanwhile, I enjoy…
