About Time; I’m back……


This is me; under the chandelier; the best pic I could find with what I think is really a pretty one.

So how was everyone’s Holiday’s? I know, I haven’t been here for a while as I was as busy as everyone else and after all the celebrating, fanfare, and the take down and put away I finally feel like I’m on solid ground again…..but I did have a wonderful time!

In catching up I’m finding that I am doing a bit of procrastinating, where I put off things I would rather not do like going through my mail basket. That really isn’t such a big deal unless you let it go from before the Holidays to now….LOL! I finally went through it yesterday and threw a lot of stuff away; anyone relate? I’m also keeping up with 3 journals as they have different subjects and I just love to write and with me I have to when the subject is fresh and coming to me like a download or something. I’m also looking forward to Spring; my favorite season. There were a couple of days here where there was some kind of nice weather and I opened my window for fresh air in between the rain. I even saw a Robin the other day while out walking. I hope that indicates an early Spring, otherwise it’s way too early cause it’s really cold today and rainy….again…..too much so! I don’t think I could handle living in areas where there was hardly any sunshine and all one could see is overcast, cloudy, drippy and boring weather. My constitution HAS to have sunshine. I love to walk outside if possible and see the blue sky and the warmer it is the more I walk.

I’m looking forward to this year! There is an excitement building up inside and I think it’s a spiritual thing. I believe it’s going to be a remarkable year with “surprises”; good ones, on many levels. I’m not silly enough to believe it’s not without challenges but since my perception has changed so much I have come to view things, even set-backs, differently. With a set-back comes a set-up; divinely staged by the Master planner.  (that reminds me that I have to get a new 2019 Planner from Books A Million) like the one I had last year.  And I believe it has a lot to do with the way one thinks. The Word of God does say to renew your mind and putting process with understanding while walking out the journey; makes sense. I sense some up-grades with understanding and I believe it will be corporate as well as personal in the Kingdom of God. I will be listening…..and following Him. I think it’s important while keeping my bearings/focus as I go forward and I believe I will be sharing that with my fellow travelers. It wouldn’t be the same without you.

So come along with me as we journey into this new year and share what is on “your” heart, plate or whatever you choose to call it. I’m really hoping that this is the year I get to go home to Arizona. I just have it on my heart so much and miss the warmth and beauty of the Southwest Desert.

In the next 20 years I believe I will be living the best years of my life. Learning to Blog is going to be part of that. My friends and family tell me I should, so I will and have fun doing so! I'm an "eternal" 70 something. I have 2 grown Daughters, 3 Grandchildren; 2 girls and a boy, and 3 Great-grandchildren. I live in AZ. I continue to grow and learn and never stop; especially about knowing my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and living in His Kingdom. I have lots of friends, love to ride motorcycles, read and occasionally watch good movies. I like to stay active so I walk a lot and do my 10 min. exercises a day through a membership in Dr. Livingood's Crews. I have cut out tons of sugar as I learned how to eat a lot healthier; I feel great! I'm brushing up on my copywriting skills and just received my first Credential for 2022; looking forward to 2023-a NEW me!!!

  1. Hmmm… without looking (on my retired phone), it appears we have more in common than our gym equipment of choice. I hope to visit the Valley of the Sun, Jerome & Camp Verde this year too. Feel the blessings and keep praying it forward 💙

    1. Thank you; I have been to Jerome but it was not a pleasant experience for me. I had extreme motion sickness and ended up in the hospital there. It has high elevation as well as nothing is “level” and I am very sensitive to un-level surfaces, my body goes on tilt…..elevation didn’t help either. If you have the constitution for it “all power to ya” but I would never go again, even if the main reason is to see the San Francisco Peaks in the distance; I only got a glimpse……
