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
I've been thinking about this blog and my patterns with writing for it. I always write at the end of the day. My days start early, between 4 and 5 a.m. and I typically sit down to write at 7:00 p.m. My brain is tired. I've noticed I am more free and open with what … Continue reading Kind lady.
Christian has been watching The Great Pottery Throwdown. I think he's finishing up season 2 now. He is very committed to this show. Tonight he said he'd like to make a coffee mug, but he doesn't drink coffee. In fact, he very rarely drinks any kind of hot drink. I've watched a few of the … Continue reading Beauty
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.

A trip to the grocery store. I had plans to clean, but no cleaning happened. Thomas came … Continue reading Saturday in April
As I sit here at my desk, I have the window open and listening to the peepers. We live in the house I grew up in. We bought it from my parents when they wanted to downsize a few years back. (Interestingly enough, when we lived in New Hampshire, we lived in the house Christian … Continue reading Change
The weather has been really nice this week. We need rain but we are still enjoying the sun. This afternoon I took my journal and my chair and moved it up behind the pool, to the edge of the woods. I sat and let the sun hit my face. Last spring we had some concrete … Continue reading Perspective
I have to be honest here, as I always am. I am really thinking about what I'm doing here writing this blog on a daily basis. Am I sharing too much? Why am I doing this? Is it good for me to write about things while they're happening, or do I need some time and … Continue reading Questioning
I carry my journal with me during the day and I write down thoughts as they come to me. I write down things I notice. I write down ideas. And I write down messages. I never called them messages before but now I can see that's exactly what they are. My schedule has been shifting … Continue reading Messages
There are some things that I just won't write about here. Things that are just too private or too personal, things that involve other people who never signed up for having their lives put in a blog post. It makes it interesting because there are some days where I'd really like to write about those … Continue reading Breaking down
