A Quiet Type of Joy —- Tuesday, May 21, 2019

If I were a poet I would write of the extraordinary

Of friendships, and gentle happiness

And uncommon little peeks into wee bits of life.

If I were a poet.

I Love Hearts in Nature—Sunday, Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2016

Heart-4I love looking for hearts in nature!  I look for them where ever I might find myself.

Heart-StoneWhen I find them it confirms that love always surrounds us—it’s up to us to ‘see’.

Love♥ comes from those we love, and from those who love us.

┊  ♥

But it also shows up in every single place we go. It waits for us…all we have to is look.

Bleeding-Heart-2Hearts are always there, whether we notice them or not.

The-HeartUndoubtedly there are hearts around you right now, too.

HeartNurturing love, through times of turmoil and transition.

It brings us to the next level of our lives.  As we climb each level, love awaits.

Moon-StoneNo matter which path in the road we take, no matter where we stroll, no matter what journey we are on.

Love is there, traveling with us, sometimes running ahead to wrap us in protection and care.

It’s up to us to see.  “All the windows of my heart I open to the day.”-— John Greenleaf Whittier once wrote.

Happy Valentine’s Day my Friends,



Yard Work–and a Request–Thursday, April 23, 2015

Bleeding-Heart-2I have finally finished my serial about Sherlock Boomer.  I am very interested in what you think about the story.  Please feel free to leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.  If you haven’t read the complete story or would like to please go to Sherlock Boomer on my header or click this blue line.  Because I wrote this as a serial, with a new chapter every Wednesday you will have to scroll clear down to the bottom, then click on older posts to get to the beginning-Chapter One.


I had thought that a weekly chapter would be fun to read and to write.  I am of the mind now  it probably got long and tedious and boring.  Anyway, I am very interested in your thoughts and encourage you to leave a comment.  This way others can read what your wrote and I have a place where all the comments are collected.


Finally, I have been able to work on my own yard–to do so I have to let my house go—soon, soon the renters will be in the other house. Right now I’m painting the bubble gum pink bedroom.  Once I’m finished they will come!


It’s been delightful to see all the dainty spring flowers popping up from all the moisture we had.

14Just look at the beauty of the sky last night!  Stunning isn’t it.  The storm clouds built around the Plateau, never coming our way.  We went out at 6 p.m., to set water, then got in after the sun set.  I love seeing the setting or rising sun when we are out there on the land.  I just love it.

Anyway off now to get some work done.  Please don’t forget to give me your comments about the Sherlock Boomer–Mystery of the Missing Rabbits serial.

Your friend,
