Creativity

The other day, inspiration hit me at the corner of the Walmart parking lot. It wasn’t much, just a homeless man standing and holding a cardboard sign. I assume he was homeless or needy. He looked the part. But on the contrary, his sign didn’t read “Hungry”, “Homeless”, “Needing Work”, or any of the usualContinue reading “Creativity”

Beautiful Morning, Ain’t It?

The wind howled drearily around the truck cab, sometimes making the sleeper rock slightly. The sky was overcast and sullen. Ross and I donned our Carhartts and gloves and set to work undoing the ropes that hold the tarps on the hay.

The Happiest of Valentines

Valentine’s Day is a special day for us as a couple. It all started 4 years ago on a sunny Oregon day. I stood beside my silver Honda Accord, my fingers wrapped around the door handle but too scared to open it. I was really hoping there would be some roses or a card inside,Continue reading “The Happiest of Valentines”

What’s Your Tuesday Like?

What’s Your Tuesday Like?In my life there seem to be no normalities. One cannot plan in advance beyond the next day (if even that far) as all things in my world are subject to change. In fact if I want to plan on something, I can plan on changing my plans. With that being said,Continue reading “What’s Your Tuesday Like?”

Get To Know Me And Mine

Meet Buster. He entered our life a few months ago and wiggled and licked his way right into my heart. He is good at terrorizing the felines around the place, barking at strangers, digging deep holes in flower beds, and melting hearts with his endearing eyes. Oh and also, he is excellent at cuddling andContinue reading “Get To Know Me And Mine”
