The Way Things Were

When I was a child, I read and re-read all of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books. I like how they all worked together to survive, from butchering to hunting to gathering. My own childhood had some of this in it. We were poor when I was really little. We had a wood stove for heating the…

“Pay Attention…”

Two years ago, I was sitting on my couch fretting about having time to release a music album, home-school my kids, and garden.   I had been spending hours on social media doing all of the following, unfollowing, posting, banner-making, video-making that I was told would help me sell more product.  I spent 7 hours a…

Monday, October 15 – It’s Monday, Right?

I’m so tired, I’m not even sure what day it is.  I spent all morning doing some blues music homework, because I need to be writing a lot of songs for my music.  I finally got some song title ideas, which is a start. I also home schooled the kids, as well as made two…

It seems like when I think things are swinging into peaceful, non-weird, non-dramatic times, something chaotic, weird, and dramatic happens. Then I can’t sleep because I’m worried about it.

Sunday, October 7, 2018 – Early Morning

I wanted to make a post yesterday, but was too busy.  I got some great pictures of the property, both in the morning of the sunrise and in the afternoon when there was a lovely rainbow to be seen.  However, I ran out of time. I’m also out of time this morning.  I have to…

Thursday, October 4 – Valley of Indecision

I can never decide which thing to focus on, so at the moment I am doing music, home schooling my children, trying to run three blogs, finish a book I’ve been working on all year, learning about MBTI, and procrastinating about painting our house.  Yay, me! Not that every blog post will be riveting, and…

Together

I have been looking for the perfect art piece to put over the top of one of our couches.  I had looked around for about 2 years.  I considered antique pieces and local artists, but after the rough run our family has been through emotionally I decided that family photo with us holding hands on…
