Going To My Happy Place

When I am getting stressed, I acknowledge it, and I remind myself to take my time and do things the right way ~ but don’t rush ~ and I make sure to go to my happy place which is never very far away. It’s always at my fingertips with a couple of swipes and taps…

Why We Cannot Plant Honeysuckle

Yes, that’s right. I am scared to plant Honeysuckle. As we are all thinking towards Spring, especially us gardener types, we are busy perusing the seeds to buy on line or in the store. We are planning, planning, planning which is so much fun and gives us much hope. Especially for those of us living…

My Journey As A Blogger/Vlogger ~ Post #2

There is a lot to distract a person from their original intention. I think we all, at some point, fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others. In that moment, I question my original intentions and go looking in a completely wrong direction. I know I brought this up, briefly, in another post but…

Welcomed Visitors

The 54 Acres of Pure Glory is not always glorious but then we can’t have our cake and eat it, too. We have to pay our dues. However, when the glorious stuff happens it makes up for everything else. Here is a video I took of a couple of members of the Deerski Family who…

Flood Presents

Since we now live on a large body of water we had debated buying a boat. It’s a good thing we didn’t invest the money because a boat has been delivered to us by Mother Nature. We will dig it out in Spring, I’m sure it will be totally fine. Clearly it was afloat with…
