Simple, but Authentic

………. That’s it. That’s all I know. Alright. That might not be entirely true, because I do know some stuff. I admit, I know as much as you, but about different things. Maybe I know a few things that you also know. It all depends on what knowledge we have been pursuing isn’t it? EarlyContinue reading “Here’s what I know so far”

Don’t Let a Good Day Go To Waste

If living through a pandemic has taught us anything, it’s to be grateful for what we have..and what we had. Living the past 18 months under restrictions has allowed us to appreciate how much of life’s blessings we took for granted, and how much we wanted them back. For many it has cultivated a greaterContinue reading “Don’t Let a Good Day Go To Waste”

I Love A Rainy Day

I love rainy, gloomy days. I find they offer such potential. You don’t need to add much to it, for the day to look brighter. When you think about it, gloomy days set your expectations low.

Advent Calendar – Dec 23: Toby the Cat

Did you know I am an ailurophile? I will say that my husband is as well, and others in my family. This is the term used to describe a cat lover, derived from the Greek word “ailouros” which means cat and the suffix “phile“, meaning lover. While I don’t discriminate against dogs, I must confessContinue reading “Advent Calendar – Dec 23: Toby the Cat”
