Christopher Robin

“yesterday, when it was tomorrow, was too much day for me.” -winnie the pooh, christopher robin

When I heard that there was a movie coming out about Pooh and his dear friend, Christopher Robin, starring Ewan MacGregor (sigh), I knew I had to see it! And what can I say? I loved it.

It’s filled with heart-tugging moments and such cuteness. While the story has been told time and time again, it doesn’t grow old. That silly old bear can be wise beyond his years. We can all use  a gentle reminder that our lives are happening now and that a little simplicity nevers hurt anyone!

My favorite movies are actually When Harry Met Sally and Wizard of Oz but this one will hold a special place in my heart. There is no doubting that. TTFN

Legos, Pompoms and Lumber

I can’t remember a time when there weren’t toys around the house. I know that there were years between my kids outgrowing their toys and the next generation slowly infiltrating our home with theirs but it just seems natural to find toys here and there. I consider them mementos of the little boys who occupy so much of my time these days.

Ever step on one of these buggers in your bare feet???

There is no end to the things you can do with pompoms- and the added bonus is that they don’t hurt when you step on them!

And finally, when the prompt fits….

Happy Monday!


Sip, Sap, Sup, Qi, Xi, Taj


When I saw the prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday and Just Jot It January 2019 the first thing to come to mind was this game that I play on my phone- Wordscapes. I’m on Level 3120 so I guess I’ve been either playing it for a long time or a lot! Every time I come across a puzzle with lots of 3 letter words I fall into this mode where I run through every combination of letters to knock those out quickly.  My favorite time to play this game has been when I was/am rocking Beej or putting him to bed. (He’s a great kid but has trouble settling down for the night. He has trouble staying in his room and I refuse to lock him in.) As he learned his letters, he has been known to point out which letter he would like me to use next. Now that he recognizes words, I am anticipating the day he starts helping me with my game….

Have a good day!


Happy Wishes for a New Year!

I’m starting off the new year by participating in Just Jot it January- #JusJoJan.

I’ve jotted down a few of New Year’s quotes that hopefully bring you some inspiration as we kick off 2019:

  • “Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. ” -Neil Gaiman
  • “Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.'” – Alfred Lord Tennyson
  • “And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.” -Rainer Maria Rilke
  • “Let our New Year’s resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.” -Goran Persson

My hope is that this will get my jump started (once again, I know!) and writing daily. Unfortunately the week before Christmas I found myself spending the week at the hospital with a loved one, who gave us quite a scare. Thankfully, my loved one is home and on the mend. Our holidays looked a little different than we planned and that empty place where our loved one usually was hit me really hard. I realized how lucky we had been this time and how important it is to let go of the small things. I am working to simply enjoy that this person is still here in my life and that empty space at Christmas won’t be empty next year!
