Rethinking gratitude

practice gratitude

It is a stressful time for all of us these days. I try really hard to focus on the positive. Part of my morning practice is to focus on what I am grateful for. It can be something as simple as the sun shining or that I had a good night’s sleep. It is hard […]

Gotta love the weather in New England. We went from a glorious colorful fall to snow (all in October). Here’s what our background normally looks like around this time in the fall. Here’s what it looked like on October 30, 2020. Now I like a cozy snowfall as much as the next New Englander, but […]

Fall is my favorite time of year. I just love the crisp, cool air and the pretty colors. Here are some fall scenes for you to enjoy: There is the dark green of the pine trees. There is the bright yellow of the leaves. It was though the sun was shining all the way through […]

kind words

We all are a bit stressed these days. Hah – that’s an understatement. So I decided to bite the bullet and schedule some health screenings that I had put off because of COVID.

more crystals

Sometimes I think this COVID thing will last forever. It certainly seems that way. Here is a typical day for me: Went for a walk. Ate a donut (in place of my usual whole wheat toast and organic peanut butter). Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures. Called to thank my friend Lisa, who had […]

Sir Oliver and Sir Angus and Dairy Queen

It was time for another road trip this weekend. And where else would we go but to our favorite Dairy Queen to get a Blizzard treat. This time we brought the “guys” with us, Sir Oliver and Sir Angus. As you can see they enjoyed the Blizzard too. We got our favorite, cappuccino heath bar […]

Sir Oliver and Sir Angus with corn

These days, it is the little things that make my day. For one, it is fresh corn from our local farmstand. It can’t get much fresher than this; they pick it every morning and bring it to the farm stand. Not to be forgotten, but we even have little corn ears for Sir Oliver and […]
