This photo was taken November 2, 2013. Michael and I went to a local event that might. A young woman sat down at our table and we were blessed to get to know her just a little bit as she was such a bright light. Tonight friends gathered to remember her. Going to miss that beautiful girl…her amazing spirit and radiant smile.

Michael and I have had several deaths around is lately. We are processing our grief and remembering dear people in our lives.


Movie Night

We had a little gathering of friends this weekend.   I did make your own pizza’s and then we watched a movie. We had a lovely evening laughing and just enjoying our time together.

For make your own pizza’s I had baskets with the crust – pita bread rounds and big hunk of French Bread. I then laid things out on the table so they could walk around and load their toppings. Sauces: Pesto, Alfredo, tomato. Seasonings: Penzey’s Pizza, red pepper and just basil. Meat: Pepperoni, Italian sausage, chicken. Veggies: garlic, black olives, sun dried tomatoes, regular tomatoes, sauteed bell peppers, mushrooms,  and onions.  Cheese: Provolone, mozzarella, colby jack and an asiago blend.  I had little bags of popcorn and then 3 or 4 seasonings to add to it for when we watched the movie.






My friend Kathie gifted me an e-course: Hibernate.  First Thank You Kathie for being so kind and giving.  It is just what I needed right now. The Hibernate e-course is about taking rest in the winter to nourish, gather, renew, create and rest.  I am looking forward to taking it.

It is odd that it has taken me so long to be okay being me. Really it started when I was 40.  I am now 46 and still not quite where I am comfortable being me completely.  I want to take this time in this class to do all the things it suggest – nourish, gather, renew, create and rest so that I can create a clear vision of what work I need to do next.

Some day’s it is easy to fall back into old habits and old ways of thinking.  But I know I feel better about myself and life when I keep walking the path I started on at 40 and hope to see more solid and clear in the years to come. I am hoping my 50’s seem more completely in myself.
