And what a challenge it was! I had visions in my head. I knew what I wanted to do. There were words flying around my mind. Then, I started looking for stamps that were representative of these words. I started looking through my drawers for things that said the words – ribbons, envelopes, pictures. I… Continue reading Traditions – An October Altered Book Challenge
Tonight, one of my favorite shows will air. At 8 pm on ABC will be It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. I am partial to Charlie Brown shows but this is a fall classic. Not many others have Halloween shows. The fact that it is airing tonight – the night before Halloween – is wonderful… Continue reading A Classic on Tonight
I have said it before. I include it in my profile on many, including dating, sites. I am a political junkie. I knew John Edwards was making a speech today. I knew I wouldn’t be able to listen. I went looking for the copy and found it. It is lengthy but well worth reading. It… Continue reading A Speech Worth Reading
I realized this morning that I hold a double standard. As much as I would like to be a fair and unbiased person, I realized this morning I am not.

Trust me, there are spools of the stuff. I realized it was so narrow and was a problem… Continue reading Creation Block
We all strive to be our best – whether in work, art, spirit or body. So when you start working out to be the best body you can be, how do you measure progress? Do you own scales that you are constantly on? I find this extremely deceptive as we all know muscle weighs more… Continue reading How do you measure progress?
I know a strange question. I was 22 and about to be married when I got my first car. As a part of a couple, I helped make several car purchasing decisions. Then, after my marriage ended, I bought my first car on my own. When I was 16 and wanted my permit, my mother… Continue reading Does having a driver’s license mean you should own a car?
I am not a city girl. I love living in the setting I do. I am even outside of town and town is a small upstate village. I do have neighbors that I can see their homes but no sidewalks, sometimes no plows in a storm for hours. It doesn’t bother me at all. There… Continue reading San Francisco
