the great pretender

If you were to ask me how I’m doing, my answer would likely be something along the lines of, “oh, pretty good” but the truth is that I am continually oscillating between “woe is me” and ” I am woman hear me roar”…

I landscaped 😮 

I’m a non- yardworking kind of girl. I dislike dirt and bugs, I’m not skilled at keeping plants alive, and I’m not that fond of breaking a sweat.  But after several years of living with a broken stepping stone that led to nowhere, I decided it was time for a change: Now it looks way better and I’m a little proud of myself for finally taking some action.  There are 2 or 3 more ‘problem areas’ in the yard I may or may not get to this summer, so this was either a great start or a great finish to my landscaping adventure… 

Sophie’s snow

Sophie sits in the windows for hours just watching snow, so I brought some inside for her to see up close… she loved it! 

another year, another me


The end of 2015 was rough.

I’m currently in the process of discovering who I want to be, figuring out what I need to do to be that person, and making plans to get there– which all sounds psychobabblish but really my main goals are to enjoy more free time but not have to be a walmart greeter when I’m 74.
