Welcome to my little corner of the world where the cattle graze peacefully in the pastures, books are being read and pottery is being made.

creating an artist’s way of life

It has been a while since I last posted a blog.  I don't know where the time goes. One minute it is the fourth of July, the next, it is almost Christmas.  To me, this year has been a blur.  Lots of ups and downs, disappointments, and gleeful moments. All in all, it...

hey, y’all!

hey, y’all!

Remember me? ––– It has been a bit since I have written a blog. Life has a way of throwing you curve balls from time to time.  I needed a minute to take it all in, mull it over, readjust and begin again. I think when we get too comfortable, being too relaxed and not...

keep calm and carry on

keep calm and carry on

Isn't that the old saying? Keep calm and carry on?  It has been my mantra for a long time. But sometimes, I can't keep calm or carry on. I am a pretty even keel person.  I can usually take situations, digest them and find a solution in a calm matter.  However,  I have...

spiritual practice

spiritual practice

I am a firm believer in Psalms 46:10. Be Still and know that I am God. I have to say to myself, many times a day, BE STILL. My mind wants to race from one thing to the next.  It seems like I need to be in constant motion. But, as I age, I crave a simpler life.  Not to...

flowers

flowers

If you know me, you know how much I love flowers.  Any kind of flower, be it a weed, wildflower or most prized rose.  If it blooms, I love it. It is still cold in Texas.  We really won't warm up until April.  That is when the wildflowers show up, in a big way!  Texas...

Can you believe it is Christmas already?  Sometimes it feels like this year has been 7 years long, and on the other hand, it has flown by. It has certainly been a heavy year.  So much to take in, so much to understand and accept.  What I do understand is that people...

I was chatting with my friend (hey B!) the other day about how in the world it is the middle of October already?!  October is my favorite month and I really haven't been enjoying it as I should. I still love all that October offers.  Sweaters, fall wildflowers,...

My yoga instructor (Jill with Flow Hot yoga) guided us in the most beautiful mediation last night. After a vigorous yoga practice, we slowed it down with a restorative yoga practice. Jill started by talking about the weather changing and how it affects us. That this...

fall is here!

fall is here!

Fall is my very favorite time of year!  I have waited all year for this day. Being in central Texas, it is usually very hot until the middle of October.  However, today, it is nice and cool with a little drizzle.  A perfect way to start the fall season. I am renewed...

my wish

my wish

We all want the same things in life.   Whether we travel down the left side of the road   or the right side of the road.   We all want to be able to work and provide for our families.  To have a little quiet time to reflect and give thanks for the...

dog days

dog days

  We are in the dog days of summer.  I always thought it was because it was so hot and the dogs just laid around in the shade, not wanting to do anything. But, according to the Farmer's Almanac, " The phrase is actually a reference to the fact that, during this...
