A Room with a View….My Latest Project

Back in January, the housing program I am in decided to move a few people around. I was one of those who was moved into a smaller apartment. I actually love the complex more than the other. It is much quieter here and I am closer to the ocean.

When I saw how small the kitchen was my first thought was, “It needs a window”. I love to have a window to look out of while I cook or do the dishes. So I hatched a plan.

I found the window frame at a local antique fair, and then had one of my own photographs enlarged to fit. So, now I have a window “view” over my sink. I can also switch out the photograph if I’d like to change the view!IMG_4458



Walk With Me…Hold My Hand

Walk along the beach with me
Hold my hand
Let’s feel the sand between our toes
The water chasing us with each crashing wave
Walk along the beach with me
Let’s watch the sunset
Sing silly songs
Laugh at ourselves
Walk along the beach with me
Let’s sit in silence together
Hold my hand
Listen to the roar
Walk along the beach with me
Hold my hand
Only for our joy and comfort
Not for any other reason
Walk along the beach with me
Let’s not miss this moment
In a wisp of wind it will be gone
Hold my hand
Smile…breathe…be there with me.

Before I Fall Asleep

I must be getting old, but I don’t feel I’m going to make it until midnight. So, I decided before I awake to 2014 I would post one more time, making this my 150th post. I like even numbers. I can’t believe it’s only been two months since I began this blog. I have discovered so much about myself, met some amazing people, and realized I’m pretty good at some things!

It amazes me that I have over 260 followers, okay, that is insane. I have also had 4,829 hits on my site. Wow. I truly wondered who in the world would read anything on this blog when I started. I guess it’s going well so far! I hope to improve both in my writing and photography in the coming year, maybe even be able to afford a better camera.

I am extremely tired, and needed to take my anxiety meds after speaking with my brother tonight…that is another blog post coming soon. I wanted to wish you all a Happy, Blessed, and Prosperous New Year! Yaaawn. Be safe tonight! Love, Peace and Hugs!

My Newest Painting Using “Fresh Paint” App

Ocean Scene


I absolutely love playing with this app. The “paints” act just like real oils, mixing colors, texture etc. The only thing is, I don’t know if I am “cheating” or if it is really a miracle that I can “paint” like this with a computer mouse. Either way it is fun!

A New Day

Another night of very little sleep, but I feel well. I guess there are just so many changes going on in my life, some good, some not so good. Change is inevitable, and I accept that. I will keep moving forward and trust that God has a plan that is meant for my good. Wishing you all a blessed and prosperous day. Be happy…it’s a choice.

Good Morning
