Strange Things Are Afoot

I’m going to pretend that there’s just some odd disturbance in the force that is causing whatever the heck this funk I found myself in today. This week. I need to get to a center. I had a good work week this week, but it was…

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! I was dreaming about this moment while falling asleep last night. Coffee on the porch with the puppies. Heaven. Outtake: Jordan too, enjoys her coffee on the front porch. Or her coffee anywhere she can get it. Silly girl doesn’t realize puppies aren’t supposed…

refresh

Refresh

Amazing what two little boxes of hair dye can do to refresh and renew your spirit. I really should just put a repeating calendar appointment for “wash that grey right out of my hair” every three months. Because, man, I can let myself go and it’s…

rain

A Little Fall of Rain

Do YOU like getting caught in the rain? The rain started to fall as I was driving to work after taking this photo of the sky over Newton Pond at Weber Wonderland. I found it funny that the “Piña Colada” song came on the radio when…

Frump Frump

Ugh, the day this photo was taken, I was actually in a decent mood. I was taking the puppies for a walk, bare feet in the muddy earth—-things are good. And then I saw the photo. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. I knew I needed to…

Jaclyn Levesque

Art by Jaclyn Levesque

My dearest friend Jaclyn Levesque made this for me! Or should I say she created it, I LOVED it and then she gifted it to me because she is a lovely human being. The whimsical new painting will go nicely in the bedroom. Thank you Jackie!…

online photos

Online Photos

Yikes. I thought I had a lot of blog posts—I just looked at the number of online photos in my Flickr account. Um 17, 136 photos. Since 2005. The sad thing is they aren’t organized very well. For instance I KNOW there is a photo in…

9 Concerts and a Lie

Ok, I’ll bite. 9 Concerts and a Lie eh? Sometimes these silly things come along on Facebook and they make me want to play. So I did. 🎵 I had to put them in alphabetical order, because I’m odd like that. This little exercise made me…

New (Super) Moon Tonight!

My friend Sara posted this today. “New moon! New moon! Taurus moon! Where are you? Appreciate where you are/ what is working… notice what you would like to shift/ where you feel stuck. WRITE DOWN WHERE YOU’D RATHER BE/ FEEL ON THOSE SUBJECTS. Ask your ancestors…

Seeds

My friend Joey told me that the New Moon tonight meant I should do this: It’s time to plant your seeds….What do you want to see grow in the next two weeks? Hmmm. As soon as I read this I felt a literal pull to plant…

Blog Posts

Blog Posts 3,832 (Wait, 3,833!)

Blog posts? Dang. A new blog friend I’ve stumbled upon recently through Twitter: Sheepie Niagara—is celebrating her 100th post today! This made me look up how many posts I’ve published in the past 14 years (and trust me, I’ve deleted A LOT too.) Whoa. 3,832 and…

Fighting Against Our Gifts

Oh Universe, thank you for sending me this Daily Om today. Fighting Against Our Gifts Continually fighting against your gifts may bring about a louder knock at your door that you won’t welcome. Crap. I’m listening. But am I really listening?

Fitbit

Fitbit Arugh!

I’ve actually BEEN walking. And I’ve actually been wearing the FitBit bracelet—HOWEVER apparently I keep forgetting to put the device back in the ugly bracelet when I’m walking. That said, if you take a walk and your FitBit doesn’t record it—did you really walk at all?…

One Step Closer

One Step Closer

HWMMS will never admit this, which is why I need to record this thought on the blog for my own sanity and future reference. TONIGHT while we were walking the doggies around the backyard behind the garage we were looking at all the work and mess…

Muddy feet

Muddy Feet

Ah,  Muddy feet. I love dirt. I love mud. I love being barefoot. My feet are probably perma-stained from childhood. This drives HWMMS insane and batty. Messy Jenny. The last week or so it’s been nice and wet and spring like outside and I’ve been taking…

Dating Apps in 2017?

Haha. I typed in the word “dating” in my Flickr search bar and what came up? A photo of “First Date Skirt.” And then of course I had to look this up on All Things Jennifer and this post —–made me laugh. Also, I could EASILY…

Tuesday Thoughts

Woke up this morning with unsettling feeling that someone I love has cancer… Woke up this morning thinking a lot about how the original farmhouse we put a bid on and lost in Newfane would have been such a bad fit in the long run. And…

Weird

I feel really weird right now. Last night I was bubbly and filled with possibility, a million ideas for my friend’s theater company. I had a great day of work. Did a wee bit of writing. Went to bed late with a head full of thoughts.…

Inclusive Theater of WNY

I’m so incredibly proud of my beautiful friend Aimèe and her vision in making Inclusive Theater of WNY a reality. “This is our dream: Not only to reimagine existing plays and be a place where diversity is the norm, but also to challenge perceptions and begin…

Ding! Thank You Universe!

I was a bad wife and didn’t do something I was supposed to do on time. My husband was loving and told me to just “get it done” by the end of the week. (Or Monday.) It’s Monday. And I’m for some stupid reason I’m blocked…

Happiness

Happiness is connecting swell folks with each other creating businesses and opportunities for good things in our community. Even better when the lovely new friend brings you a gift, of PI! (And she didn’t even know Pi had special meaning to me. SERENDIPITY!) And brings you…

Ask: Guidance & Clarity

Arugh. The wonderful and crazy thing about overthinking and looking out for coincidences and synchronicities and trying to analyze and figure out what the right thing to do is when you are foggy and grey. FOR EXAMPLE. I checked my email this morning and saw this.…
