Random post to say that I'm still here and still trucking and still smiling and there will be more on all of everything later 🙂 Life, Work, Dogs, Friends, Family, Grad, Vacay... It's never boring! Thank goodness for the weekend! And they are all mine now-- I'm parking it at Sami Central for awhile-- and... Continue Reading →

Finding Joy: Feeling good and finding inspiration from this little book here 🙂 Tunes: Johny Cash, Nora Jones, The Beatles... among others. Just appreciating my million-dollar view, and getting some self-care and space-care into the mix.

Today has been good. And I'm happy it's not over, because there's quite a few things left I want to get done. Stay tuned. --Sam


It's where my head is at... I could do many things-- but right now I want to do nothing. Made it home, finally! I'm so sleepy, and the sky is blue and the sun is shining and I don't have to be anywhere or do anything, so I'm taking advantage. ~ My hands smell like... Continue Reading →

Out with the old and tired, and in with the fresh and new. Amen! I would really love some peanut butter, and for someone... Continue Reading →
