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…

On sabbatical from love

Since no one stepped in and told me to stop- I am still chatting with an ex. I could blame the booze. But I only had one glass of wine last night. So, it’s not that. Maybe it’s COVID and isolation. Being cut off from my usual group of friends and acquaintances. You all know…

Boxing Day Rituals

It’s 8:30 am and I’m wide awake on Boxing Day morning. I always wake up a little sad on Boxing Day. I love Christmas. But it feels you put so much work into Christmas for a few weeks, and then it’s over. Just like that. Boom. You’re done until New Years – at which I…

Thinky Thoughts: unconventional relationships

It’s quiet in my building tonight. And it’s dark outside – even by 5 pm, it was already pitch black. I had a pretty good day until I started working on my Christmas tree. It’s just a tiny little tree from Michaels. A 4 foot prelit tree. It’s kind of like a Charlie Brown Christmas…

Happy Thanksgiving from me to you

This morning I woke up feeling a little sad and lonely. Being single and living on my own is fine for the most part. But it’s holiday time – Thanksgiving and Christmas that I start missing my family. Especially my mum. Mum would always get up really early on Thanksgiving day. By 9:00 in the…
