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

New Thoughts...

...lead to new surprises.

why should I expect new things 
to Be
 when thinking the same thoughts

New Year! New Journal!

New beginnings

I am Ready!

{This collage was done by me, but
this GORGEOUS journal was handmade
by Kelly Kilmer. Love.

I have so much to feel grateful for,
and I feel it so deeply.

2014 had sadnesses in it that
I'm certain everyone feels
when big things happen
that pull the rug out from under us,
I did A LOT of learning in 2014.

I want, need, to be better for it,
more patient,
more loving,
more grateful.

I Am

Yes, Ready is my Word for 2015.
It found me...
quite unexpectedly.

Already one thing to be grateful for in this new year!

So, what about you?
Are you ready?

For what?
Feel free to share...

Happy New Year!
