The Sunday Post

It was a beautiful day in Fredericksburg, Virginia today. The sun was shining and the clouds that briefly floated overhead were not responsible for the gloom settling over many of us. It was everything else going on in the world. I don’t have anything more intelligent to contribute to this conversation, but I know I…

The (Easter) Sunday Post

Happy Easter! This Easter was probably quite different for many people, or at least most Christians. I think most churches experience peak attendance on Easter, but hopefully many people were able to worship from afar courtesy of the Internet. No need to wear your Sunday best or Easter bonnets for that, although maybe some dressed…

The Sunday Post: Just Breathe

Today was a beautiful day. The sun beams washed us with light. Temperatures rose. Our neighbors’ lawn mowers serenaded us with their loud hums. Well that part wasn’t so great. But I was able to start a week off from work with some yoga, a good book, and a little space to just breathe.

The Sunday Post: Changing Seasons

Today seems like a good day to get back to basics and one of the primary objectives of this blog: to share photographs, get creative, and participate in the online blogging community. This also helps me stay off social media for a while so I don’t add to my growing sense of woe and frustration….

The Sunday Post: Serenity Now

I’m feeling a little better today. Not so emotional or down in the dumps. Sorry about those last few posts, guys. Some days that tender spot just gets beat up a little too much. It’s been a productive but quiet day as I work on laundry (Why is it that no matter how much laundry…

The Sunday Post: The struggle is real

“Jolly” is maybe one of the last words I would use to describe how I felt this morning. A more accurate description would include words like “tired,” “morose,”  and even “slightly hung over.” But considering that today is the day after our company Christmas party you might expect some of that. Except that, for the…
