I love animals.  My daughters and I used to volunteer with Kittico Cat Rescue to help cats find homes.  At any given time it seems there’s a surplus of animals and not enough homes to go around.  It makes me sad. My dad was a big animal lover.  I guess I get my love of… Read More ›

Spring Forward

    It’s time to move the clock forward again.  We watch the sunrise many times on the way to work in the morning now.  Bright hues of orange  and yellow streak the sky as the sun comes up and signals the start of another day. I love this time of year.  Even though I like… Read More ›

“Lift” A Great Little App for your Phone

The world of smart phones has come a long way in a short time.  I confess to being fairly new to smart phones and their tricks and uses.  I have an iphone and have been enjoying finding new, creative and useful apps each week. I download and explore a lot of the free apps, though… Read More ›

The Smell of Fall

I love the smells of fall.  The smell of pumpkin bread baking, chocolate chip cookies, and cakes.  I love baking when the weather gets cooler. Fall brings with it the prettiest colors.  My favorite colors decorate the trees: orange, red, brown, yellow, and even some lingering greens all grace the trees around the area. The… Read More ›

Book Review for Emotional Intelligence

  I read a variety of books from fiction, psychology, business, self-help, romance, young adult, and even some investment and “how to” type books.   I just finished reading “Emotional Intelligence” by Daniel Goleman.     http://http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51jlGW0%2BpgL._SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_.jpg   Emotional Intelligence is not a new book.  It was orginally published in 1995, but the information is… Read More ›

Journaling A Past Time, A Legacy, A way to stay Sane!

Journals, blank books, are one of my favorite things to get as a gift, to buy at the store, and to give to a fellow journal writer. They have so many different journals to choose from now.  There are leather bound journals, silk bound journals, painted journals, journals with flowers, dragons, landscapes, designs, and just… Read More ›

Fall is Here

October is my favorite month.  The cooler temperatures, the fall decorations and pumpkins all around.  I love the smell of pumpkin spice and cranberry candles. I love the fall decorations, and the change in the air.  Although, I love Halloween, the dressing up, the fun and games, the spooky stories, roasting marshmallows and drinking hot… Read More ›

Comfort From A Furry Friend

Today our black cat reminded me how comforting the presence of an animal is.  I had asthma as a child and spent many hours in bed with a vaporizer.  My cat Mitten (who I was not allergic to) would cuddle up with me and purr. Many nights I went to sleep to the comforting sound of singing and… Read More ›

Books Books and more Books!

I love books.  They are one of the greatest gifts we have! Wonderful tomes filled with fantasy, recipes, life experiences, and information to entertain, feed our bodies and minds, encourage our spirits and expand our knowledge. What an amazing ability and opportunity we have to learn to read.  It is right up there at the… Read More ›

Challenges Are Not Permanent

This year started out kind of rocky and wound up being one big challenge after another. Yet, I am still here and I am grateful for the things we have. In the midst of struggle we sometimes forget to be thankful.  Things could always be worse.  Life can find ways to be challenging that you never thought… Read More ›
