A Good Day

Today was a good day I woke at 6:22 made my bed. Had a great time doing my hair and makeup. Then I went to the coffee shop I work now with a friend. We had their specialty house coffee. The coffee shop has such an awesome atmosphere and Anne’s child Martin came with us…

Thankful for L.I.F.E.

I’ve been reflecting on life as it is for me. I was talking with one of my good friends the other day saying how I felt in a rut. But after reflecting on this I’ve accomplished so many of my goals in these past few months! One of my goals was to become a barista…

1 Cup of Coffee

I was so happy yesterday after receiving my job news that I decided to treat myself. Since I was a child I lived creating things. I thank my mom for giving me that artistic inspiration. I love painting so I decided to indulge in a trip to the pottery store. For the sheer sake of…

Held Together with Some Cawter Pins

“Held Together with Some Cawter Pins” is a line from I think one of the funniest songs I’ve heard by Susan Warren. I have a first rate experience with cawter pins, any surprise? Its called “City Kids.” While I think this song is beyond funny it uses hyperbole in comparing city kids and country kids….

Changes, Biking, setting My World on Fire

As my bike skidded to a stop in front of the library I felt the chill rain against my face. Rain is such a beautiful thing that cleanses away all the dirt and griminess. I see it as a refresh from what happens on a day to day basis. And Lord knows we all need…

A Dove and a Mirror

As I gazed in the mirror at my wood wicked chair I wondered what was is to come. A dove flighted off a branch and I wondered; wondered deep. Wandering through the paths of all the “could be’s” and the “might’s.” To a deep wonder. I stood gazing back at my old life. Had I…

Merry of Soul

This morning broke clean and chill over the Kansas hills. This morning I am listening to Russian soundtracks from Toygar. Which are classical and hauntingly beautiful. Sura, Toygar The coffee pot at my house took a turn for the worst so I’ve been enjoying the gifts of my Keurig. Haha, which is quite amazing! I…

Diversion through Workouts

“A Hundred Bad days…I ain’t scared…” This is exactly what workouts give me. Strength and diversion to defeat my fear and my bad days. It’s like for the time of my workout I’m transported to another time and place. I guess a workout is just such a diversion to normal thinking. It just is really…

Rattlesnake Ridge, Snoqualmie Falls

My foot heaved over the ruddy roots as Ruby sprang ahead of me. Ruby is my sister’s dog. I was climbing Rattlesnake Ridge not 6 months after my surgery. It was an amazing feeling of triumph. One of those feelings you get after doing something to the max. Pushing yourself to your limits. As the…

School and New Opportunities

The window was open last night which led to chilly dreams and not enough sleep. I am awake now and breathing in the delicious scents of coffee that fill my kitchen. Ahhh… home, what a wonderful place. I think there’s something about being from somewhere; like an innate feeling deep inside that just makes you…

The Simple Beauty of Nature

As I stepped through the knee-high green grasses I breathed in the fresh air. It was cleansing as if giving the prairie a new birth. My father often says that the prairie changes her dresses for every season. The prairie is changing her dresses. The fresh air streamed against the hanging white sheets billowing in…
