Music Fridays: Purple Rain

I may have mentioned I’m a Minnesota Vikings fan in earlier posts. People at work probably noticed the Vikings jersey I wore today. And one of my most popular Instagram pictures in 2017 was this one: Maybe the outcome will be different this year? Still can’t decide whether to@smile or keep a straight face (which…

A well-worn seat

If I’m working on Morning Pages, I’m most likely sitting in the living room in my favorite spot: the corner seat on the couch, next to the side table and lamp. If I’m working on my Bullet Journal, ditto. Blog posts, same. Designing a Canva graphic or poster for The Adaptations, again, that’s where you’ll…

Tomorrow, tomorrow…

Here are a couple of entries for this week’s Weathered photo challenge. I took this first photo during our brief getaway to the mountains last September.

Top Five Things I’m Pretty Good At

Time for my second homework assignment in the Finding Everyday Inspiration course and this one is right down my alley: lists. I’m doing this assignment a little different this time and providing my list in the form of an infographic. I love making lists, but I also wanted to add a visual to go with…

The Sunday Post: Why I write

If we were having coffee this morning, it would be “magic coffee.” After sleeping in on this cold Sunday morning, we decided there really was no good reason for us to leave the house today. Groceries can wait until tomorrow — we have leftovers we can warm up for dinner. Which brings me to the…
