There is something about a cup of tea that just makes me happy. I'm a picky tea drinker though. I'm not a tea "snob", per se. I don't have a cupboard full of fancy teas and crazy flavors. Being half Scottish, I've always had tea in the cupboard and it's always been Tetley's. (I also… Continue reading Fancy A Cuppa?
Weekends are for sleeping in (but not too late)savoring my cup of tea (and maybe having a second)working out (or telling myself to)doggies snuggling on either side of the couch (for hours!) exploring the area and looking for property (and mostly lucking out)grocery trips to the Piggly Wiggly (my least favorite and my husband's favorite… Continue reading Weekends
I love music. I cannot get through my day without it. I start my tunes as soon as I sit down at my desk and keep them going all day unless I have a call or a meeting. Then after work I sometimes listen to it while I cook dinner or just before Casey gets… Continue reading Playlist(s)
Stormy Day: As told by Georgie
I woke up to a bright flash of light and loud rumbling noises. I don't like that at all. My mama was too lazy to get up and take me downstairs, so I went in the bathroom and laid on the rug. At least she brought me a blanket to sleep on in the closet.… Continue reading Stormy Day: As told by Georgie
An Exciting Package
As I get older, my joy in everyday things increases. For example, today a package came from Amazon. It wasn't very big but I knew exactly what it was and I couldn't wait to open it. It's something we need more of in the kitchen. We had two but one broke on Sunday and we… Continue reading An Exciting Package

Right now I'm watching the local news and hearing about the dangerous weather that might be coming tomorrow. As usual, they're supposed to be worse after dark. Great. Time to get our supplies… Continue reading Right Now #sol21 Version
A few weeks ago, my sister and I were speaking about their spring break trip to Fort Morgan (Gulf Shores), Alabama. After talking to her, my husband and I decided to check out a long weekend trip to go down while they were there. That way we'd get beach time and a visit with at… Continue reading Annoyed

Worrying – that… Continue reading Currently #sol21 Edition
My Favorite Colleague
I've had so many amazing colleagues over the years. Some who have become my closest friends and confidants. But I've never had a colleague quite like this one. She's quiet. She almost never says a word. But she's funny. She has this way of moving about the office that makes you wonder what she's up… Continue reading My Favorite Colleague
