Ten thousand miles gone (soul food)

Songs that I listen to when emotions become too much to deal with. That’s me lately. I don’t know if I’m lonely, depressed, hurting, or healing and letting go of past hurts. Or all of the fucking above. All I know is I’m tired of feeling all these stupid feelings. It’s a confusing time. And…

Early morning rain thoughts

I actually wrote this on Sunday and forgot to post it. It’s the end of the month already and as hard as it has been this year, a lot has happened in the past month. So much so that it’s been a bit over whelming. First of all, I met with my new geneticist and…

March 2022: monthly goal setting

It’s nearing the end of the day for March 1st as I write this, so you will read this tomorrow morning. But that’s okay. One day won’t hurt. A new month, means a new set of goals – and for this month, I’m going to make some changes. Good Reads Challenge In December, I decided…

One year closer to 50

It’s Saturday morning and I’ve just sat down for my first cup of coffee for the day. The sky is clear outside and the sun is shining. It’s early for me, I woke up out of a deep sleep around 7:30 am and decided to get up for the day. Yesterday was my birthday and…

In loving memory (grief)

Yesterday, I got the bright idea to start writing a short e-book. I wrote about 4,000 words before taking a break for lunch. I came back and started writing again last night around 10 pm. Before I knew it, I had written 7,300 words and it was 1:30 in the morning! Writing is something that…

It’s a good day for a waltz

It’s Thursday afternoon and I just got home from my volunteer gig. We had a funeral at the church today and they asked me to play the organ for it. I said yes, since I’m still allowed to volunteer and I needed to get out of the house for a bit. But let me tell…

You’re damned if you do. You’re damned if you don’t – updated

So, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with social media but especially Facebook. I’ve learned that it’s impossible to be friends with everyone you know in real life. I have a hard rule of not adding supervisors or managers onto social media. That always seems to bite you in the ass. At my last job, I…

An ode to my mother on her birthday

It is days like today when I am reminded why I started this blog. At first, it was a way for me to vent and rant about daily life. Then it grew and became a life form of its own with recipes, cooking and fitness tips and pretty much anything I want to write about….

Grief. Time doesn’t heal all wounds.

I’m not going to apologize for not writing as much as usual this week. Sometimes I need to take breaks. And other times, I just don’t feel like cooking. That’s what this week has been. But I have some ground beef defrosting in the fridge and perhaps I’ll make a meatloaf and share my recipe…
