Time to Shift

Time to Shift

Whoa….you must be saying, did Lynn’s blog get hacked, there’s a new post!  I know, right?  Yes, it’s been awhile and oh, how I’ve missed writing. There were so many signals that kept luring me back to blogging that I couldn’t possibly ignore any longer. […]

Kitchen Cupboard Evacuation Plan

Kitchen Cupboard Evacuation Plan

With my daughter and her family moving in for a short time, I’ve been busy trying to deplete my cupboards like it’s a Red Cross evacuation.  I need to make space for the usual children’s school lunch items and basic snack favorites to satisfy those hungry little tummies.  I’m […]

Vintage Cookbooks

Vintage Cookbooks

I’ve been in the process of cleaning out closets lately as I make room for my daughter, her hub and children who will be moving in with me while their new home is being built.  The panic of chaos I’m about to undergo prompted the urge organize before Lynn […]

Summer 2015 Bucket List

Fifty Shades of Grey – The Grey Room

Fifty Shades of Grey – The Grey Room

I had you at Fifty Shades, didn’t I. Apparently grey is the new white and it’s popping up everywhere in everything from clothing to carpet to paint to décor items. It’s hard to imagine grey as a sexy color but it’s elegantly neutral and intoxicatingly […]

A Matter of Time

A Matter of Time

Some people are haunted by night time.  The darkness.  The quiet stillness.  Perhaps even by ghosts. Others are haunted by loneliness.  Being alone.  Spending too much time alone.  Abandoned or emotional loneliness yet surrounded by people. Me, I’m haunted by time.  Too much time, too […]

A Perfect Weekend

A Perfect Weekend

Last week was a busy week.  A little bit of this, a little bit of that…. It kicked off with a birthday party…The Hurricane turned four.  It’s hard to believe it was only four years ago this adorable little girl was welcomed into the world. […]

Suck it Up Sister, Your Vacation is Over

Suck it Up Sister, Your Vacation is Over

It seems like December 20th was months ago, it was the first day of my 16 day vacation.  Technically I only took 5 days vacation but with all the holiday time-off from the company I work for, it turned out to be 16 days of […]
