This is so amazing. There is happiness in the midst of a storm.


Love is but a song to sing Fear’s the way we die You can make the mountains ring Or make the angels cry Though the bird is on the wing And you may not know why Come on people now Smile on your b...

A pause in The Long and Winding Road

Just wanted to touch base here to let you guys know I might not be around for a few days, I am having the busiest work week since Covid began! I knew it would be crazy, my boss came back yesterd...


… and thank you all for your input!! So I have to say, this was one great big PITA. Who knew I have superstrong ceilings that drill bits don’t even want to penetrate? It took me HOURS to get t...


(Real entry, <----) The hanging ladder I ordered, arrived this afternoon. This is how it looked when I found it on Etsy: Some of your comments made me decide I wanted to paint it white, to b...


We’re only a couple of weeks into the Coronavirus here in the Seattle area and already the effects are starting to be devastating. It’s most likely only a matter of time before it comes to your ...


A funny thing from yesterday (surgery day) that I just remembered. Sarah and I were headed to the surgery center, I was giving her directions as we drove, and we were chatting. Me: I know every...


Matt came yesterday to install the kitchen lighting. I am SO excited and I love the way it all looks, especially the light over the sink. However.... (why does there always have to be a “howeve...


The weekend on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC with my friend T couldn’t have been better. Now it’s late morning on Memorial Day and I am sitting out on my balcony, it’s just a gorgeous day bu...


EDIT: Thank you all for your opinions. Most of you like the brushed nickel and that’s the way I was leaning also! Thank you for validating my preference. Either way, the hinges will be painte...


A few of you requested this recipe – sorry I don’t have a link but I copied it here. Of course you can play around with this recipe. I used chicken thighs and legs because that’s what I have on...


It’s 5:58 a.m. on a work day, and here I sit at my dining room table, in my jammies, with a cup of coffee. I’m not calling in sick or anything. I am just up an hour earlier than I need to be be...


I mentioned that I used a small portion of my bonus to indulge in a new dining room rug, table runner, and candle centerpiece. I loved the old dining room rug – it was bright and vibrant, adding...


I am heartbroken to hear that PB is shutting down. No good thing lasts forever, I guess. We still have a few more weeks to share here, but in the meantime I want to get my ducks in a row. If w...


Thank you all for your kind thoughts, comments and even prayers (I’m not a prayerful person but I appreciate prayers) for the loss of Jackie. It was a sad night. It started Saturday afternoon w...


I’m ready for work a little bit early, because Michael’s been having trouble with his car battery. If his car wouldn’t have started this morning, I’d have given him a ride to work. Fortunately,...

Busy times in The Long and Winding Road

Things are pretty busy for me right now. Not sure how that happens when I think that in general, I lead a fairly dull life. Maybe not, lol. Even though I tend to start feeling anxious when I do...


Those of you who are my friends on Facebook already know all about this, so please bear with me. Josie had a seizure on Wednesday night. It took me a few minutes to recognize it for what it wa...


The years fly by faster and faster, the older I get. I feel like I’ve hardly gotten used to writing “2015” on my checks! Facebook inspired me to do a little bit of a Year in Review, so I went th...


Day Twenty Eight: What are some of your guilty pleasures? (Ex: candy, tv show, food, activities) Whew – it’s 8:20 PST so even on the east coast I am getting this entry in on time – barely! It’s a...


Day Twenty Seven: Who was the last person that made you smile and what did they do? I smiled so much yesterday with my family at our Thanksgiving gathering, it’s hard to say exactly who was the l...


Day Twenty Six: What are you thankful for this very second? This instant, I am thankful to be warm and cozy in my home on a very cold morning. I’m thinking about the homeless who are sleeping on...


Day Twenty Five: What’s your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? If the weather is warm, on a rainy day I like to sit out on my covered balcony with a good book or a Paint by Number or something...


Day Twenty Four: What was it like at your house as a kid? (Ex: Clean or messy? Quiet or chaotic? Empty or full?) Oh jeez. I could write a whole book on this one (who couldn’t?) but I’ll try to b...


Day Twenty Three: Who was the first person you fell in love with? Ah, sweet love. I married the first person I fell in love with. Maybe that’s why the marriage didn’t last. I was very young and...
