Spring is springing


Spring is FINALLY springing in Alabama. I LOVE it!! Then again I love spring in the south… the temps are just right,  my allergies aren’t so haywire that I have to stay indoors and all the blood suckers aren’t populated yet. So awesome. Hopefully spring is springing where ever you are in the US.


Still here


I know its been awhile since I’ve checked in.  There’s lots going on. We’ve been on the midst of all this winter weather that’s plaguing the south,  our loveable 7 year old can’t seem to catch a break in the health department (he’s now got the flu) and life has just generally been moving at the speed of a turtle. I’ll probably have some pictures to share in the upcoming days as we are supposed to get about 5 inches of snow. Until next time be well.



There are some days and times I get really homesick for the natural beauty of Washington state. That’s not to say that Alabama doesn’t have its pockets of beauty but there’s just something about the lush greens, the old forests browns,  the beauty and majesty of the mountains……I can’t wait for my summer visit. It’ll be great to be back home again.

Fixing the puzzle


I’ve been taking a bit of a break here lately from pretty much everything. I’m trying to take some time to reconnect with myself, in this quest for whatever, I’ve come to notice that I’m scattered. Literally all over the place. I may be in one spot but my mind is racing all over the place at what feels like the speed of light. There’s so much I’m trying to download, process, sort through, figure out and compress that I’m just overwhelmed. Not nearly as much as I was a few weeks ago but I’ve got a ways to go.

There’s been so many things that have happened that I just pushed my thoughts or feelings to the side and didn’t take the time to process right then and there that I’ve become fragments if myself. Every once in awhile I’ll see a reflection of my true self in something that’s going on or being said and I have to smile inside. I know the woman I love is in here under all this clutter, mixed emotions and excess baggage I’ve just got to keep on sorting, sifting, and processing until she’s able to shine.

When I finally reach her I know that I will again be like my picture, a whole balanced reflection of all the thing I love about me -with my shades of light and dark, the things that are open as well as the parts that are hidden. I’m looking forward to that time but until then I’ll continue to sort through the puzzle pieces and piece by piece, section by section to finish a wonderful masterpiece.
