2019 International Women’s Day

I am not sure why the distinction of celebrating women makes me stand a little taller, but truth be told, today it does.   I remember growing up thinking that my voice sounded like a boys voice and wanted it to sound like a girls voice.  Not sure what I was thinking, I was 6 years…

I am back, healing has begun

Hi everyone.   Thank you for your patience during my time away from my blog.   I have been and continue to be on the path of recovery from surgery to my shoulder. Over the past 7 weeks I have spent much time in quiet contemplation, sleep and reflection.   There are times in life when we need…

2019 Thankful List – Darwin

Being married to my best friend has to this day and I know will be the same beyond today, been the greatest adventure.   After over 30+++ years there have been many changes in both of us.  Not only appearance, but our outlook, tolerances and opinions have morphed and changed to where we are today.  We…

What sounds best Old or New Muscle cars?

2018 is gone and 2019 is here!   So, on this beautiful New Years Day 2019 what am I doing?   I am sitting in my chair looking at muscle car videos.   I have hidden my love for the “old” muscle cars for a lot of years, but since Facebook has so many that show up on…

Merry Christmas from Heartbeat’s House

First

Christmas holds a variety of traditions and beliefs for everyone.   Lifestyle, upbringing, and personal choice is the path that leads to the traditions and beliefs that we hold to our hearts as precious and as truth. For me one of the traditions that is closer to my heart than I can say is, being…

Oh Christmas Tree

Today, I had the immense privilege of having both of my granddaughters come over and help me / us decorate for Christmas.  When my kids were little I used to look forward to their plans on who would hang what ornament and then the fun that was in their voices as we would discuss what…

Girls Mechanics Class

I can remember my first day in mechanics class.   We were the first girls mechanics class in the High School I attended.   I am over 60 so you can imagine how long ago that was!   It was Grade 11 and no other school in the area had allowed girls to take mechanics….

Too Many Keys!

I am alway accused of having too many keys on my key ring.  I guess I do, but when I try and reduce them, well… I just don’t.   Each one gets used many times during the week, or at least most of them.   I have been told that the weight of them can…
