Scenic Sundays 50: Sick Again | What makes you happy?

I don’t have much to say this weekend. I started getting sick again this week. Now instead of being stuffed up, I have a hacking cough. This being sick or injured thing is getting a little old. I just want to stay well for more than a few days! Please, please, let that happen soon. What are tips and tricks to staying well? When you are sick, how do you keep a happy mindset?

Scenic Sundays 49: Reflections on the Season | What’s Your Favorite?

Scenic Sundays 49: Reflections on the Season | What’s Your Favorite?

As we inch closer to fall, I’ve been reflecting fondly on our trip to Niagara Falls. This is one of many flower pictures I shot during our week long stay in the area. The bright color and fly make me long for the warmer weather of spring and summer. I love spring and summer because I spend some time outside reading on my deck, drinking homemade iced coffees in the morning and hours riding Jezebel. What’s your favorite season? What are your fondest memories of that season?

Scenic Sundays 48: The Healing Power of Kitty Cuddles

Scenic Sundays 48: The Healing Power of Kitty Cuddles

Last weekend we took a little road trip to Minneapolis to see my brother and his family and celebrate my nephew’s 4th birthday. Great time was had by all and I’m sure I’ll share some of the photos later, but I’ve been “lazy” this week. When I woke up on Sunday morning in the hotel, I wasn’t feeling well. I was still tired and my throat hurt. I ended up sleeping most of the drive home and then it just got progressively worse as the week went on. Fearing a sinus infection, I visited the doctor and was told it was just a head cold and it should clear up in a few days. So I spent two days this week cuddled up with the kitty-babies, absorbing their healing vibes and enjoying waking up from my short naps to scenes like this one. Despite being sick, waking up to kitty cuddles does bring a smile to my face.

Scenic Sundays 47: Melancholy and Italo Calvino

Scenic Sundays 47: Melancholy and Italo Calvino

As I sit here on this rain soaked Saturday morning, I feel a change coming on. I’m not sure if it is related to the fact school is back in session and that fall is right around the corner or if there is something stirring deep in my soul. But something different. This summer has been a whirlwind. I feel like I’ve barely had time to breath. We started off June with seeing the final two shows of TCR’s 2014-2015 season and then we were off to Niagara Falls for a week and a half. We got back and I jumped back into ICON 40 Planning and then it was my birthday, my niece and nephew came for 2.5 days, I seriously strained my back and I flew off to L.A. for work. I’ve been antsy for the last 3 weeks. My activities (including sleeping!) have been limited due to the strain. I’m watching the weather get colder and I’ve spent hardly any time at the Barn with Jezebel. Before you know it, I’ll only be able to ride in circles and figure 8s in the indoor arena. It’s nearly September. Twenty-fifteen is nearly over. And like a old woman, […]
