Summer Entertainment on a Dime

Summer Entertainment on a Dime

Summer is definitely in full swing.  And with longer days and warmer temperatures comes leisurely entertainment.    I could spend the day buried in a good book, barely taking time for restroom breaks.  I love getting to live vicariously through the characters and their stories, traveling to the deep South, the Pacific Northwest and everywhere […]

A Father’s Day Tribute

A Father’s Day Tribute

I know….I’m a day early….I wrote this last year…and I felt like I might bring it out and add it to Live Creatively Inspired.  I can’t think of anything but a tribute. On this Father’s Day…I would like to take a minute and just reflect on everything that Fathers do. My father died when I […]

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

For much of my adult life, I did not drink coffee.  Not a single, solitary drop. Nope, I was just not that “into the brew.”   I know right?  Not drink coffee?  Who doesn’t drink coffee?  Well, I guess that was me.    I was always an iced-tea kinda gal.  Yes, even first thing in […]

the key to staying organized

the key to staying organized

My eyes were shooting darts across the room at someone whom shall remain nameless, as I thought to myself,  ” I do all the work around here!” But my self-righteous attitude was brought down to reality by a small, quiet whisper from within.  And the truth stung a little bit. I barely keep my head […]

A Memorial Day Tribute.

A Memorial Day Tribute.

Instead of project, or painting, or tutorial….today I want to stop and give Thanks for the reason we have a Memorial Day Holiday. As Americans We forget sometimes, how very fortunate we really are. We get Memorial Day off from work many years, without remembering that this freedom was given to us because so many […]

summer fun for the kids

summer fun for the kids

Students everywhere are counting down the days til summer vacation.  But, it never fails after a few days, maybe a week of being home, that our children utter those dreaded words, “Mom, I’m boooorrred.” We immediately fill responsible for solving the problem.  While I’m going to suggest a list of activities to help remedy boredom, […]

doggon it, people like me

doggon it, people like me

Last week I was touched beyond words, on two separate occasions.   I was moved to tears at my friends’ sentiments, at seeing my reflection through their eyes.  Is that really how people perceive me? Why do we do that?  Why are we our own worst enemy, unable to see ourselves the way others do? […]

teacher appreciation week…through the eyes of a teacher

teacher appreciation week…through the eyes of a teacher

“Can you tell I have a lot of anger built up?”  My daughter asked last night as she labored over homework. “I’m tired of homework,” she declared.   To which I replied, “And your teachers are tired of teaching.”   (speaking from 17 years of experience as a teacher) Exhausted is the only word that […]

scaredy cat: a pet story

scaredy cat: a pet story

I thought National Pet Month would be a great time to introduce you to our cat.  Meet Blackie, the gray tabby. Free to a good home.  KIDDING.  Just kidding.  We LOVE our cat. He was a Christmas present to our daughter about seven years ago.  We let her choose the name.  Blackie was better than […]

Rise Up and Walk

Rise Up and Walk

If you don’t mind, I’m just going to pick up where I left off last week.   Let’s see, where were we…. Oh yes, I left off with the quote that read, “You’re worth is not measured by your productivity.”   Yet, that is exactly how I’ve been measuring my worth.   With that has […]
