So, do you miss me? Those of you who follow my periodic writing posts may have said to yourself, “Where has Dawn been lately?” Well, I’m happy to announce I’m under construction. Umm…not “me” actually, but my website. MY WEBSITE’S UNDER CONSTRUCTION. That’s not entirely true either. More accurately, I’m “moving” to a NEW website in the very near future. The new site will have some familiar elements, however some things will also be new (and hopefully a bit improved) . . . all combined with a new name and a different, fresh look. It’s all quite exciting, so STAY TUNED for updates. I’d love to have you join me!
Some things are not always as they seem. From time to time that reality hits me like a ton of bricks, or perhaps a ton of feathers.
I’ve opted out of any Black Friday shopping for a few years now however, a seemingly-too-good-of-a-deal-to-pass-up caught my eye in the newspaper flyers on Thanksgiving Day. I squinted, holding the paper closer to make sure I was correctly seeing the significantly low-price tag on a specific item. Which, I was. Continue reading →
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” – English Proverb
I couldn’t help but smile as I inhaled the slightly musty odor greeting me as I walked down the wooden steps. While on a trip in Michigan, Hubby and I happened upon a surprising discovery of an antique shop in the basement of the gift shop we’d been wading through. For me, there’s nothing more delightful than to wander through stewed aromas representing rooms full of used merchandise. I’m not referring to any disgusting smells here, but rather, more like the scents of Grandma’s attic . . . years of different, interesting items put together all in one place. Continue reading →
Let’s talk about Pooh. I’m referring to Winnie the Pooh, of course!
I have long since held a treasured affinity for this certain, endearing bundle of matted, brown fur. My fondness I shall never outgrow, though Christopher Robin did . . . almost.
I recently took my granddaughter to see the movie “Christopher Robin” and must confess, that silly ol’ bear tugged at my heartstrings. I. Was. Smitten. Although my granddaughter enjoyed the film, I realized early into the viewing this was a movie perhaps more intended for adults. Naturally, Pooh and his friends were adorable; however, there lay some precious nuggets of wisdom behind those bright, button eyes belonging to the bear with the plump tummy. Continue reading →
“For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.” –1st Corinthians 14:33
It was a long time coming. I only wished there was such a thing as a gigantic spray bottle of ‘Clutter Be Gone”.
The idea was birthed a few years ago to put new flooring throughout our home. Simple. As hubby and I finally grew closer to putting feet to our plan however, our mindsets made a drastic shift. We would still renovate, but as we mapped out the remodel process and studied our surroundings, we came to a stark realization.
Twenty-five years had been dedicated to acquiring, collecting, and accumulating . . . stuff. Continue reading →
Once again, I fought to remain immobile as electric currents ran through coiled wire, creating loud, resonate sounds. I’m no stranger to being encapsulated in a giant, tube-shaped, fiberglass magnet. Still, hammer blows pound against my chest each time. Continue reading →
