Match energy given to you, or let it go

Something has been bugging me lately about communication and I’m going to try an experiment over the next while. Do you ever feel like you are always the one reaching out to certain people to keep conversations going? Like you’re the only one in certain relationships making all the effort? Some friends reach out daily…

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…

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….

Summer shenanigans thus far

It’s been a few weeks since my last entry and wow things have changed a bit. And in some ways, not so much. I went from blogging almost daily last year during the pandemic to now, I maybe get one or two posts in a month. I think it’s better this way. Just give shorter…

Vulnerability and opening up to someone new.

It’s Friday night and for the first time in about a week, I have good energy, I’m wide awake and feeling good. This past week was terrible between the insomnia, migraines and everything else that seemed to hit. But I always snap out of the funks even if they seem to last longer and longer…

I’m perplexed. People are strange.

I haven’t written in a few days here because I’m working on editing my books and am almost finished the second part of my mini series. I’m having a better time writing it now. The harder scenes have been written and now I can just have fun with the series. As I sat at the…

Saturday morning coffee thoughts: a new hope

It’s Saturday morning and the sun is shining. I’ve been awake since 5:30 am which seems to be the norm these days. A few weeks ago, I was proud of myself for getting up before 8 am every morning. Now, it seems I can’t sleep past 6. The days are getting longer and it’s bright…

Finding love again after forty. Is it possible in today’s world?

It’s late as I sit down to write this post. It’s been an eventful couple of weeks and I haven’t written much in the blog. That’s being done on purpose. I’ve found that when I post daily, people don’t engage. If I post every few days, I’ll get more interaction. And so, I’m trying to…

Another lazy Sunday

It’s Sunday afternoon. I have my second cup of coffee for the day. But I’m still in my pink pj’s and have my warm fuzzy blanket wrapped around me. Why? Because we’ve finally been hit by the infamous Alberta deepfreeze. The kind of weather that your joints can predict. And your skin absorbs lotion faster…
