Happy February! The month of consumerism that is only second to Christmas. Bah humbug! Can I say that for valentines Day? Remember love is an everyday thing not just a holiday thing.
Thought for today. Tell the humans you love that you LOVE them. Tell them often and in public. Don’t hide the fact. Make it weird.
I’ve started seeing advertisements for that money snatching made up holiday. You know the one that is all hearts and flowers. The ads offer cute coffee mugs, T-shirts, posters, throw blankets and key fobs with sweet words of endearment and love. None of it we need in our lives. My husband and I have more…
I dream about home and writing when I should be doing other things. Sometimes focusing is difficult. I try not to stifle daydreaming. Some of my best ideas come when my brain is playing. Let your mind wander when you can and let it know that is it not in a box. Tell your mind…

I became a librarian nine years ago. I have been at my current job for exactly five years to the day. I was in management for years in a job I hated. The stress was literally physically and mentally killing me. So I simply put my health and happiness first. I quit my 64k a…
Laundry and tea. Turmeric Bliss tea to be exact. Dirty laundry is a private matter altogether. No one wants to see your dirty underwear or socks. I do not understand why people take to social media to air all their dirty laundry. Not just when they have a disagreement with some other human but when…
I don’t like cooking. Baking I find enjoyable. Today I cooked a huge meal. On the menu: Glazed ham with cherries and pineapple, turnips, mac & cheese, cornbread, potato salad and blackeyed peas. White cake with fluffy white frosting. I have always said cooking is an art and baking is a science. Baking is all…
