Under Pressure

I’ve been reading some blogs on simplifying our lives. 

There are times when it feels like the walls are closing in, too much stuff, too many responsibilities, too many bills. I’ve been trying to get back to a more simple way of life. I’ve been busy selling things on Amazon and Ebay. Figure that might help with the bills and the stuff! It’s been going pretty good. I think I sometimes tire myself out with overtime which brings the depression and stress knocking on my door. I am very blessed in my life and must keep reminding myself of that fact. Sometimes the pressures of family problems can bring me down. Like always, I try to fix everything!



This is one of my favorite pictures. Splotchy on a relaxing summer day!


What a life!

Simple and easy!

I want to grow up to be just like her!


Hope to see ya soon!

Winter Blahs

Yeah, I got em bad and winter really hasn’t even kicked in yet!

Seems like we had a short spring followed by a rainy few months. It never really felt like summer except for the few weeks of the heatwave.  Maybe it’s a sign of my getting older but everything, especially the weather seems so extreme!

I’ve been thinking about just hibernating the winter away!

Oh that’s right , I have to pay the bills!

Always something to pee in my cheerios!

But to make me feel better, I just count my blessings!

I know after a hard evening at work, I have love waiting for me at home.

It seems there’s always one of my grandkids sound asleep in my bed waiting for me.

There’s always Splotchy to come running to meet me and three crazy cats purring away.


Splotchy just doesn’t realize she’s in a laundry basket instead of a fancy doggie bed!


She lets me know it’s important to be content in any circumstances.


We can learn from G.S. to enjoy fine dining right out of the bag. Who needs fancy china?

I am trying to just enjoy the moment. Sometimes I just need my circus to remind me of what is really important in life!


Hope to see ya all soon!
