Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving

I don’t know about you but my kitchen was turned upside down this afternoon. It was like I was an Iron Chef or something. Tomorrow will be a great day of feasting, being with family and friends, and counting blessings. I made the green bean casserole, the stuffing and yes, this jello dish [...]

Day 9: Trust In An Elevator

The other day I stepped onto the elevator of the Seattle Space Needle that would take me up in the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River, 605 feet in the air to be exact. A structure that has 25 lightening rods. As I stepped onto the elevator in a split second I put my complete trust in [...]

Day 7: Smiling in Seattle

Today I spent the day in downtown Seattle, doing what every tourist would do. I went up in Seattle’s number one tourist attraction the Space Needle, I toured the Chihuly Garden and Glass, and I got a glimpse of the Seattle waterfront via guided boat tour through an Argosy Tour. I’d [...]

Today, Tomorrow. Gratitude & Goals. (Aug & Sept)

August 2016 seemed like a blur as did the whole summer. August though was a very eventful month, full of surprise, disbelief, amazement, joy and sadness all in one. It was full of mountaintop highs and valley lows, but such is the flow of life. Nonetheless, I am grateful for every bit of it, [...]

5 on Friday: Thankful but I want to quit.

This Friday finds me grateful for so many things. Foremost on my mind is my puppy Scout and how well she has recovered from having stomach surgery due to sepsis and in a short period of time. We’ve been together just two weeks now and her first six days were spent in the ICU. So this Friday I [...]
