In my journal

One of my goals for this year
is to perceive
my work stress differently....

With a perception change,
I am hoping to be able to
let it roll off of me.

A Simple Wish...A Simple Girl

I'm happy just to be at home
 with my books, papers,
magazines, my pup Ellie at my side, 
warming me, snuggling me for hours
 in my reading chair.

But...if I had one selfish wish:
to always be in a warm climate.

Just sayin'

Oh, I just finished reading
Wild, by Cheryl Strayed.

If you read it, 
tell me what it means to your heart!

Happy Superbowl day,

Spending Time... my journal.

I enjoyed a quick, overnight getaway
for my birthday this past weekend.

Hope you had a good weekend, too!
Happy Monday, friends.

I Want... get out of my own head
and my own thoughts
and not limit myself.

Peace to you,

Safe, in my journal...

We had a warm spell around Christmas,
so Lake Erie isn't frozen...
We know what THAT means...
the icy cold winds of 6 degrees F
blew over the warmer lake, and
Lake Effect Blizzard!

We got so much snow in four hours
that everything is shut down

A three-day weekend for me.
Not complaining, since 
we're all safe this time.

Yeah, last month I was in a car accident.
An inexperienced young driver
in front of me
spun out on ice.

I am grateful it wasn't worse than it was.

I am grateful for SO much.

Finding Comfort

...anyway I can now.

Thank goodness for my journals,
my piles of awesome books,
and candles,
...and a fireplace.

It is 6 degrees F today
but at least my classroom was warm!

I am living up to my Word for 2015
so far.
I did something Huge
that I was finally really READY
to do.
A Big step.
I was scared but I did it anyway.

Wasn't the full moon beautiful?
Bella Luna!

Eating soup and eating better
Staying warm
with hot ginger-lemon tea
and a quilt.

The winds are howling and the
temps are dropping
but I am inside
with my journal
and a candle for atmosphere.

Have I mentioned how much
I dislike
