August 31, 2021 – Full Circle

When I collapsed (from exhaustion) onto my ‘not half bad’ air mattress last night, I thought about how much my present life resembles life seven years ago (this month). During the month of August, 2014, we purchased our home. On the day of the closing, it was over 105 degrees and ash fell from theContinue reading “August 31, 2021 – Full Circle”

Thank God for fire fighters! When my husband and I set out to grab dinner tonight (after spending a solid 8 hours packing up the house), we were a bit surprised by the ‘view’. Less than a quarter mile from our house, the hillside was on fire. Fortunately, after 4 fire planes and a helicopterContinue reading “August 30, 2021 – Photo”

August 29, 2021 – Whirlwind

Today started off with a bang, albeit from a slightly different perspective. I’m accustomed to waking up several feet off the floor. However, with the belief that a buyer would be enticed by the recent markdown of our master bedroom set, in preparation, my husband disassembled our bed. It was quite a strange sensation wakingContinue reading “August 29, 2021 – Whirlwind”

Since life has been rather chaotic lately and I haven’t had much time to snap photos, I pulled another one out of ‘the vault’. I felt it appropriate because we’ve been blowing through our money like nobody’s business. The ‘dollar’ amount in the photo only represents seven measly cents and I can assure you thatContinue reading “August 28, 2021 – Photo”

August 27, 2021 – Fried

I was trying to come up with a word that meant ‘beyond tired’ and after a number of ‘close but no cigar’ words came to mind, I finally settled on ‘fried’. It has to be the word that best describes how my brain and body feel at this moment in time. I love a lotContinue reading “August 27, 2021 – Fried”

Finally! After spotting this little guy drinking from my backyard feeder on multiple occasions, I decided to pull up a chair and see if I could snap a photo. I think I must have sat there for at least 20 minutes before he got the nerve to come back. It was extremely difficult to containContinue reading “August 26, 2021 – Photo”

August 25, 2021 – Under my skin.

Why is it that certain people get ‘under my skin’. It’s much like the splinter that became lodged in the nailbed of my right thumb a couple of weeks ago. They both involve ‘pain’, but with the splinter it’s physical, and with people it’s emotional. It doesn’t matter where I go, there’s always ‘one’. TheContinue reading “August 25, 2021 – Under my skin.”

August 24, 2021 – Photo/Art

I took a photo of the sky several years ago and thought it might be ‘fun’ to superimpose my little poseable art ‘guy’ over the top of it, for no other reason than to do something a bit different. I didn’t and don’t have any fancy software, so this is the best I could doContinue reading “August 24, 2021 – Photo/Art”

August 23, 2021 – Letting Go

As I look at all the newly emptied spaces in my home, and think about what formerly occupied them, I recognize how much I’ve ‘let go’ of. It hasn’t been easy, mind you, there are a lot of things I would have preferred to keep. I have spent a great deal of time ‘accumulating’ thingsContinue reading “August 23, 2021 – Letting Go”

At some point last year or the year prior, I honestly cannot remember which any longer, ‘we’ removed all but one of our abusive rose bushes. I didn’t like spending much time around them because although they smelled heavenly, they left me with significant scars after I’d make careful attempts at pruning them back andContinue reading “August 22, 2021 – Photo”
