The Last 5

If you’d be interested in seeing the last 5 pictures on my phone… I am no professional image-maker but I find beauty in the candid shot. So when my friend sent me this one that her phone captured mistakenly when we met for a hot cocoa and a catchup on Friday, I saved it to…

Weekend Highs

This will forever be remembered as the weekend where: I went camping and didn’t realize my accommodations were going to be under a heat dome 😅 The temp hit 99 (I hear it actually hit 100 on Saturday but at that point, I was permanently fixed under the shade) and one of my fellow campers…

Back and Forth

It’s not possible to look in both directions at the same time. Indeed, the very act of looking back and forth suggests one has to stand still. But I believe it’s healthy and even necessary sometimes to look at where we’re coming from so we can make a plan for where we want to go….

Life Happens While You’re Making Plans

Sometimes, a lot happens when nothing happens.    This past weekend was a very strange one for me. Not just because of Christmas, which often brings mixed emotions for me, but because a lot of what I expected to happen, didn’t. And some of the things that happened were so unexpected that I haven’t even come to…

Weekend Lessons

For the past month or so, I haven’t done a weekend recap or shared my goals. Not because my weekends haven’t been eventful and certainly not because I haven’t been goal-setting and goal-achieving. But life has been a little different these past few weeks and my blog has suffered a little bit. I apologize for…

Let’s Go To The Videotape

I might have told you already. Last week felt like a bust in terms of accomplishments. I felt weary but also like I hadn’t done much to be tired from. That’s how I felt. You might have felt something similar at some point – you’ve worked all day but felt like you had nothing to show…

Design and Do

I’m great at making goals, but not so great at achieving them. Last week you’ll remember I set a lot of goals, some of which were really not goals but wishes because they’re not actions I can control. Like saying I want to increase my Instagram following is not a goal because I can’t make people follow…

A 5F Weekend

The 5Fs are: Fellowship, Food, Friends, Family, Fun. This weekend had all  5Fs (and its Columbus Day today so the weekend isn’t even over yet) Friday evenings, I usually spend time reading the Bible, preparing for Bible study at church on Sabbath, and going on YouTube for videos of sermons. I also found some cool…

The Big E

The last few days have been action-packed and I haven’t been keeping you posted on what I’m doing. Here’s what I’ve been up to. I went to a funeral on Thursday Friday was so cold and rainy, I spent the workday indoors and got some good editing done.  On Saturday, we had a Pathfinder event…

5 Things I’m Doing This Weekend

If this week past is any indication of my future, here are 5 things I’ll be doing this weekend: My physical goal this week was to exercise every day and so far, I’ve run 4 times, enjoyed some long summer evening walks and now I’m looking forward to the long run that Sunday morning promises….

5 Of Everything

5 Memories To Treasure: Spending a few hours just talking to an old friend. The sisterhood is alive and well. Walking around my old neighborhood and being really happy I don’t live there anymore. It’s kind of scary now.  Walking almost 20,000 steps one day.  That day I put on my skinny pants and they…

Tales From The Weekend

On Saturday, our church was really scanty because a lot of our regular members are still in Texas attending the General Conference session – we’re kind of in summer vacation mode, ergo, time for bright, casual outfits, like my orange dress. I went to an awesome backyard party on Saturday night where I wore another…
