Summer Musings 2016 #16 – The Journey of Life, Pace Yourself

If you tread slowly, almost at a stand still, rejecting change, motivation or opportunity; you are sure to be left… Continue reading Summer Musings 2016 #16 – The Journey of Life, Pace Yourself

Summer 2016 Musings #15 – Dinning on breakfast in the Sunroom

This week was exhausting. No one told me that wielding a paint brush and hauling paint tins, would be such a work out. After painting windows, walls and floors for three days, my body ached. So, it was with pleasure that I supped in the evening cool of said room. As the evening stars peeked… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #15 – Dinning on breakfast in the Sunroom

Last summer was brutal on my sparse garden. I planted a few palms a few years back and they suffered. The four lowly plants to the north wall, had been burned black. Yes, you heard right Burnt Black! This year, I vowed that it would be different. So far, my weekly yard soaks have encouraged… Continue reading Summer 2016 Musings #14 – Green Green Grass
