One thing I like to do at the holidays is give a small (very small) token gift to people at random. One year I hung handmade angel ornaments anonymously on neighbor’s door knobs. Other years I have given candy canes or tea bags from a display on our door (we spent a lot of yearsContinue reading “Random Acts of Christmas”
When the weather is warm Bob and I enjoy our lunch on the deck. During nice weather we will take any reason for being outside. We enjoy the cool breeze and being serenaded by bird song. After lunch we like to stay outside and spend some time looking up — like in straight up, overhead. So,Continue reading “Lunch on the Deck”
Todays blog title is what Bob said after we shared our stories of provision with each other. I started by saying I love when the Universe provides and does it with a sense of humor. My grocery trip this month was delayed and I was running out of gluten-free flour. Then yesterday in my emailContinue reading “I Love the Universe!”
Yesterday was just one of those days that was just too beautiful to stay inside. We ate lunch on the porch, then reluctantly went back inside to get back to work. On my walk up the hill to get the mail I took a little detour by the lake stopping at the children’s playground toContinue reading “Sometimes You Just Have to be Outside”

It seems that there is enough darkness, death and evil in the world without celebrating it. Let’s face it, in spite ofContinue reading “It’s National Apple Month”
This morning as I was out on my first walk of the day I saw large white wings disappear into the leaves of the upper branches of a tree. Knowing it was most likely a Great Egret I continued on the path slowly and quietly, stopping every few steps. It didn’t take long to seeContinue reading “A Close Encounter of the Wildlife Kind”
I just couldn’t resist an “extra” post today to celebrate the signs of spring. Yesterday I dropped Bob off at the YMCA and took my camera to the local botanical garden. Shocked at the explosion of color since my last visit I ended up taking over 100 photos. You will be seeing a numberContinue reading “Spring in the Garden”
