A Heart Of Sweet Emotions

We all have family. We all have friends. We have people we know all over the place, across the country or around the globe. Now, with the ancestry search craze, even in the heavens above and lifetimes lived previously. We don’t all have “people” to tend to life’s “list of things to do”, but we…

Shut In, Shut Out & Shut Down

We have no choice, we must comply with the orders of this national historical happening; governments, both state and federal, have implemented a “stay in place” order. They say, “go nowhere, see no one and practice social distancing”. What’s going on in the world right now, is something none of us has ever experienced before….

It Only Takes One Special Person

When you’ve put 32 years of your heart and soul into something, it truly is an emotional roller coaster saying good-bye to it. My realtor is doing a private showing of my homestead and I decided to drive to the other end of this lake and sit in the park, gazing back on the place…

Making A Big Time Life Change

So, what do you do when you know you truly want to change your life? Well, you put your homestead up for sale and get serious about downsizing. I mean, truly serious. It’s not at all easy to do and most never face this task, unless forced to. When you go through all the things…
