It’s a Sex and the City kind of day

It’s Tuesday morning and I’m sitting here listening to what sounds like a 50 foot pressure washer outside my window. I’m sure isn’t. I can’t see what is making the racket. But I know I’m kind of whiny and cranky today but also happy – so feelings are confusing things at times. The large maple…

Rainy autumn mornings, how I love thee

It’s Monday morning and I just finished my breakfast, now sipping coffee whilst watching the Queen’s funeral. I did not, get up at 3 am in the morning like some of my family members did to watch the affair. But if my mum were still alive, you know she’d be watching with tears streaming down…

All the things I’m grateful for

It’s nearly 4 am and I’m supposed to be in bed sleeping and dreaming away. But as usual, my brain is being a Sadist and refuses to listen to anyone. I just popped some sleeping meds so I will be sold out tomorrow. Which kind of sucks – I have a lot to do to…

Activities for no spoon days

It seems to be a general consensus among my close circle of friends that today, is indeed, a no spoons kind of day. On these days, I just want to curl up with a blanket, watch Disney movies from my childhood and just take it easy. For me, no spoons or low spoon energy means…

Keep calm and carry on

It’s Tuesday morning and I’ve been up for a few hours already. I was rudely woken up by the sound of a family of crows outside my window at 6:45 am. So, I just got up, got dressed, had my coffee. And have already put in a couple of hours of work. Did some writing….

Friday coffee thoughts and migraines

It’s Saturday afternoon and I’m nursing a wicked migraine. I haven’t had one this bad in a while and it’s soured my good mood. The insomnia is back and I wound up staying up ALL night again, getting out of bed at 5 am to do what? I made eggs for breakfast and put a…

September Self-care Goals and Rewards

Here we are – September has begun and summer is over. The kids are back in school and for many, life has returned to normal. Which for parents, often means chaos as they juggle back to school and work schedules after a long summer break. For me, this time of year has a lot of…

Chase away your demons

Summer is almost over yet the days are still extremely warm. The maple tree outside my balcony is shedding leaves already and there are a few on my balcony floor. That means I’ll have to clean it up in a few weeks. The weather will be hot all weekend and then cool off significantly come…

Autumn is almost here (poetry)

copyright (mostlysingle.com) The leaves are falling quietly,Falling to the ground,And when you walk on them,They make a familiar, comforting sound. The trees are turning colors,Shades of red, orange, and gold,They’re shedding their covers,Before the winter cold. The days grow shorter,And the nights are dark,But this time of year,Is like comfort food, for the heart. As…

The monsters are in your head (dark poetry)

Run, run, little one,Go hide under your bed,Run, run, little one,From the monsters inside your head. Run, run, little one,For they prey on your fears,Run, run, little one,They will lick your wounds,But they won’t dry your tears. Run, run, little one.The monsters want to play.Run, run, little one.For you are their pretty prey. Run, run,…
