Time for a new project

As you may have already noticed, I’m not blogging so much anymore.

That’s because it’s time for a change. (…perhaps past time for a change?)

What is that change?

Great question!

And when I know the answer I’ll be sure to share it!

One thing that most likely will change for sure, however, is the existence of this blog.

I’m sure I’ll still blog, but I really think it should not only reflect any new project (or projects), but the name should be appropriately recognizable. (as I learned in marketing 101 but took me this long to put into action!) 

I think this will all be worth it (for me, anyway!) – so, bear with me if you choose…

Oh, and here’s a hearty ‘Cheers to change!’

As they say, “Without change there be no butterflies” (and we all know how much I love butterflies!)

I’ll be back – thanks for stopping by.


Say “Why Not?”

If I understand one thing fully it’s this:  the only thing that can truly stop me from reaching my goals and fulfilling my dreams, is me.

Even when the world rears up and gets in my face ~ and gives me every reason to give up ~ I am the one who still holds the power through choice and belief.

That’s not special just for me, ya know.

“To achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, determination, and dedication.”


All things are possible for those who believe.

Take some time

I love being busy.

It makes the days breeze right on by.

That’s good and bad.

So to make sure I don’t miss everything, I take breaks during the day to take a deep breath and reflect a little (especially since it was recently pointed out to me that I sometimes take my days for granted!)


It’s a good reminder ~ to take time to enjoy the little things.

Chasing Butterflies

Drawn in by an elusive butterfly again! (and not the old Glen Campbell song, either… it’s a good one, but it’s no Gentle on My Mind! hehe!)

This type of butterfly is called a Red Admiral (I think… I’m no expert or anything… but I saluted, just in case! haha!!)

It started out on the bricks on the floor of the pergola:


Then flitted up to the top of the pergola:


But finally it let me get fairly close (of course, it may have just conceded landing because I might have worn it out from following it around the yard and it needed a rest… or it’s really friendly!) anyway, it landed on the seat of the swing :


Tired? or Friendly? Regardless, at least it posed in the nicest way possible for me! You can even see the texture/colors and the tips of the antennae ~ really cool, huh?

Now, you all know I like to look up symbolism and stuff, right? So, what I found is that an orange & black butterfly that lets you get close (or flits around you) is a symbol of luck and/or new beginnings.

I like it!

Thanks, Admiral!

PS: Today is post #200!! Thanks for taking this adventure with me ~ hope you stick around for more!
