Ok Pinterest, You Make Holiday Decorations Look So Easy But You Make Me Feel Like An Epic Fail!

Hilarious! Soooo 2020!!

Midlife Margaritas

I want to be one of those super creative people that makes their own holiday decorations. I am NOT one of those people. Unfortunately, Pinterest makes me feel incompetent. Isn’t it bad enough I fall down that creative rabbit hole for hours and feel super inspired, only to try and fail over and over again?

I’m the mom that bought tons of “Creative Memories” stuff back in the 90’s. I bet I spent a community college tuition on that stuff. Made one page. Not even a whole scrapbook. It looked like a third grader did the work. A few years ago I finally sold all the stuff I had bought from those at home parties. Scrap book pages, scissors, stickers, picture cutters, etc. in a yard sale. A Young mom even asked what all that was. When I told her she said, “Oh I do digital Scrapbooks”. Duh. We didn’t…

Breathe and read

I Write Her

I will sing you…

with low notes strongly pure
light through dust of your worries

courage for times of cold silence
when you need the music to return

I will sing you in truth until
you remember the voice born with you.

Yet to be Seen

where blue crosses yellow
melting green, life will meet us
in colors combined


How is it that water
is such a crafted artist?

Consistently she reflects
the whole of light and darkness

grays blurred or glint of rose
upon watery wavering waves.

Then offers still life in contrasts
days of no wind, glasslike

surfaces smoothly reflective
that stop me in time.

Thunderstorm Conversations

Lean into the loud
hold curiosity’s hand
consider this thundering
consider it may not mean what you thought.

This crack clashing boom
only an illusion of danger.

Maybe it isn’t a disastrous end
but a calling of resounding strength

I Write Her

12:10 AM – July 4th, 2025 – Texas


The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) has advised POTUS there was a breach of their security systems. At exactly Midnight, a cyber attack completely disabled the power grid. Currently, 30 million people are without electricity. The entire state of Texas has gone dark.

The President will be speaking directly to the nation on an emergency broadcast within the next hour. The hope is that ERCOT will restore power as soon as possible. No terrorist organization has yet to claim responsibility for the attack. During the broadcast, the administration will update the public with current details about those responsible for this action on American soil.

We will update this story as we receive more information.
