I don't have much to say today except that I want to remember that this little girl is who I am. Messy, joyful and full of life. Being an adult is overrated. I've been an adult for a while and I'm done with it.Sure, okay, I'll keep going and do what needs to be done. … Continue reading Her
When I sit down to write these posts, I have no idea what is going to come out. Some days I want to write something deep and meaningful and powerful. And it just doesn't happen. That's the weird thing about writing this blog - the more I think about what to write, the harder it … Continue reading Time
Today it rained and rained and rained. I'm in New Hampshire and found out that when it rains and rains and rains here, water comes into our basement. That's good to know. The river is flowing like crazy, so the water is light brown from the stirred up sand. The little sandy spot I planned … Continue reading Rain
It's the tulip time of year and today as I was driving I saw so many sweet and perfect tulips. My favorite were the beds in the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru. I was able to snap a photo. I spent the day updating signage for the farm. They're opening up this weekend for ice cream for … Continue reading Tulips
There is something about a beautiful spring day, isn't there? It feels like possibility. Wes had baseball practice this morning so I took the opportunity to visit the library.

Today I decided to have a little burning ceremony. I started a fire in the fire pit and then went upstairs and got a pile of my old journals. The plan was to read a little bit of each and then throw it in the fire. I didn't want to go to deep into the … Continue reading Burn it.
The Artist's Way is a magical book. Our group just started week 8 and each week, it feels like Julia Cameron knows exactly what is coming up for me. She is talking directly to me about it. “One of the great misconceptions about the artistic life is that it entails great swaths of aimlessness. The … Continue reading The Artist’s Way
I don't know whether to laugh or cry about this but I think I'm finally understanding what a boundary is. I've taken classes, read books, watched You Tube videos about boundaries. I knew I needed to work on "having boundaries" but I never could quite get there. The only way I can explain it is … Continue reading I’m in charge here.
Back on the early morning wake up train! 4:30am today. I use the time to write my morning pages, space out and read. It is so quiet. My window faces east and I watch the sun come up. A trip to the grocery store. I had plans to clean, but no cleaning happened. Thomas came … Continue reading Saturday in April
