Giving Yourself Credit

  There are times when we need to stop and give ourselves credit.  Let me rephrase that, there are times that I need to stop and give myself credit. I am going to say it, I am doing a hell of an excellent job, as are you. Often, I find that I set unrealistic expectations… Continue reading Giving Yourself Credit

A Phone Call Away

Today is a day when I needed my mama.  I texted and asked when she was free, if she could call me.  I waited.  I tried to stay busy, but I was anxious and holding back the tears.  I really wanted to hear her voice, but I knew that she was otherwise preoccupied. It seemed… Continue reading A Phone Call Away

Sewing (and life) 101

I have been sewing (on and off) for years, like 20.  I have been a very import pin holder and finder for much longer 😊 I fondly recall being young and helping my mom make medieval cone shaped princess hats.  I took such pride in my crocked stitching and slightly ripped fabric.  I did my… Continue reading Sewing (and life) 101

When the sun goes down

There are many creatures that surface when the sun falls behind the trees and stops illuminating the sky with its warmth and majesty. At this time, there are vampires, werewolves, and zombies to name a few (the only few that I know), that come out of their hidey holes.  Thinking about it, Werewolves, do they… Continue reading When the sun goes down

A Thief in the Night

You were there and then you weren’t.  Like a thief in the night you were taken from us. There were times when I thought about you, but I was too busy and did not make the call. I allowed my life to get in the way, not allowing for a 10 minute call to say… Continue reading A Thief in the Night

Anniversary Playlist

Another off-topic topic for today: Playlists   Music, as defined as, vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion is a big part of my life. Or shall I say that as the years have passed, I have been able to… Continue reading Anniversary Playlist

Day 23: Irritability

There are tears today, tears of frustration. I am struggling to type; it feels like there is a fight between my fingers and the keyboard keys.  So many typos. Typing the wrong letters in incorrect order in a dyslexic manner.  As I consider myself to be an educated and gifted person, this is a huge… Continue reading Day 23: Irritability

Day 21: Tired

It is officially the third week since riding out this Bipolar rapid cycling episode. The counting of days in the title comes from the days since I had the breakdown.  It is hard to believe it has been 3 weeks already.

Accessorizing

Question: What is the best or your most favorite part of your wardrobe? As discussed in previous blog posts I have shared, I have a love affair with my wardrobe.  Now that I think about it, we have yet to even speak about my shoe collection (be still my pounding heart!).  A collection of shirts,… Continue reading Accessorizing
