Movie Night!

Last night I was snuggled under my blankets and rewatching an old Netflix series and I found my attention totally glued to the tv just like the first time. Have you ever had one of those moments when someone delivers a line of another writer and you stand up applauding? I’m envious of such aContinue reading “Movie Night!”

Growing Pains

I know a few people who had the Monday’s around me and I tried not to let it become too contagious but some people have trouble turning the corner into a new year. Everyone deals with change differently. Instead of staring at 2022 with and feeling overwhelmed, I started to ask other people what theyContinue reading “Growing Pains”

Howl At The Moon

Tonight, I think I’m going to stand outside and howl at the moon. Maybe some neighborhood dogs will join me. I’m sorry but an annoyed neighbor would only make me do it again. And they do have furry friends. If they ask, because I don’t have a dog, I can say I was trying toContinue reading “Howl At The Moon”

Daylight Savings Time

Sunday I woke up and thought I slept in later than usual and it took me until 2:00 pm to realize that we gained an hour last night. Yes, Daylight Savings Time happened without me knowing. The question is will I remember to change the clock on my car dash this year. Maybe I shouldn’tContinue reading “Daylight Savings Time”

Day #18 Word Smash!

We are off to another start after a busy weekend of creating.  This weekend you heard the constant buzz of 3D printing in the background.  My husband decided to invest some of our money in a new hobby and I have him busy with a list of miniature furniture pieces that I want to useContinue reading “Day #18 Word Smash!”

Friday is Day #8 – Watch

Last night meant late hours because my art muse decided to stay awake and create a miniature cauldron of green, glittery goo. I was supposed to be working on my next day of InkTober but my hands itched to make something in 3D. No matter the medium, at least these chilly months inspire creation. SubtitlesContinue reading “Friday is Day #8 – Watch”

Day #6 of InkTober – Word Prompt Is Spirit

The middle of the week is here and I started to laugh when I saw the prompt for Day # 6.  The word spirit didn’t bring to mind anything spooky, instead it conjured up the image of a flask of hard liquor.  Yes, it’s been that kind of day and I’m not a drinker.  IContinue reading “Day #6 of InkTober – Word Prompt Is Spirit”

One At a Time!

I don’t know about you but I was dragging at the beginning of the week and my mind didn’t want to focus on getting work done. All of the excitement over the weekend drained me and my attempt to catch up on my rest in one day wasn’t enough. I went for a walk inContinue reading “One At a Time!”

Hallmark Season

This weekend in Minnesota is one of the last few at cabins on the lake for many people before they pull in their docks and store their boats.  Those who love finishing make their last few casts for the season during their long weekend.  Then, the routine of getting everyone to school and work onContinue reading “Hallmark Season”

Summary Content

Tuesday is here but I’m still thinking about the weekend.  Have you ever had to hunt down zebra or elephant cards with phrases on them?  Well, that’s what I did while I was in The Art Shoppe on Sunday.  I started to look at the variety of cards from different artists and some of themContinue reading “Summary Content”

Writing Up A Storm

Temperatures are back up into the 90s as we move into the last month of the summer in Minnesota.  When the wind blows it’s like sucking up hot cotton into your mouth.  You heave it back out and do a little gasp for relief.  Stops for a cool drink, ice cream, and anything cold becomeContinue reading “Writing Up A Storm”

End of Month Update

We are back to city life at the beginning of a new week and we are at the last week of the month.  I’m thinking about our Minnesota State Fair this year and because we didn’t have it last year, I’m willing to brave the crowds to attend again in August. It’s hard to believeContinue reading “End of Month Update”
