Somewhere out there . . .

Somewhere out there, lies a whole world of opportunity that is waiting for you.

Somewhere out there, are things you only thought possible in your imagination.

Somewhere out there, opposition that you’ll have to face.

Somewhere out there, life is waiting for you.

Life is about living.  Good things, bad things, and everything in between is all a part of life. Don’t hold back from trying something because you’re afraid of failure. Don’t ignore something you want to do simply because it doesn’t fall into “socially acceptable norms.”  It’s your life; you’re the one who has to live it.

Don’t know where you’re going? Are you feeling lost in life? That’s okay too. No one has everything together all the time. Life throws us curve balls and monkey wrenches, and all we can do it handle them the best we can.

Such is life and all the vicissitudes therein.

The world is waiting for you, somewhere out there.

Called upon . . .

She could see it all
inside the confines of a glass ball.

She watched it through the day,
and through the night,
trails of the human plight.

Laughed with others joys
cried with others tears
Endlessly watching throughout the years

When her heart, to help, was moved
never would she personally intrude.

Called upon to sit and watch
And though given power to help, she would not.

“It’s not my place to get involved,” she’d say.
“Those things don’t concern me anyway.”

Though her eyes were open-wide
she failed to see.
the damage done to her own being.

“You can’t be friends with a squirrel! A squirrel is just a rat with a cuter outfit.”
– Sarah Jessica Parker

Don’t let anyone tell you who you can’t be friends with, talk too, or hang out with.  You don’t have to agree with the opinions of others.  Befriend a squirrel, it may be the best choice you’ve ever made.

Always home . . .

They moved around a lot – some may even call them vagabonds. A couple months here, a few months there, they adopted to living out of cardboard boxes, only ever unpacking the essentials. Another city, another house, new neighbors, and new jobs.

Moving around wasn’t always easy, so they learned to never put down solid roots.  However, no matter how many times they moved – whether their next home was big or small – if they had each other they had everything that they needed.

An Evening Drink . . .

She had the start of their evening all planned out – a bit of wine to relax before heading out to dinner.

The evening was getting on and he would be coming home soon. She had put on that new dress she brought from TSR and accented it with a stole, and one of the pearl necklaces that he liked. Perhaps she was overdoing it, but it was about her plan. And that made her attire a requirement.

After she was dressed she rummaged around for the pad of sticky notes and directed the dog to wait at the door.  On the note she wrote: “A tall drink awaits you” and stuck it on the inside of the door’s frame. She smiled to herself, thinking that it was both witty and clever. Patting the dog on the head she went to pick out a wine.

He had quite a collection and she was still a novice at wines and had yet to taste them all.  She tapped a finger against her lips as she scanned the shelving, pulling out a bottle here and there to read the label and check the date. The last thing she wanted to do was waste a bottle.

She was so focused on finding the perfect bottle that she hadn’t heard the front door open, or him coming down the hallway. “You look gorgeous.”  The husky tone of his voice broke through her concentration and she spun around, a bottle in one hand, while her free hand rested on her chest.

“I didn’t even see you!”  Was her reply. The initial shock wearing off as her eyes openly traveled over him. The first thing she noticed was that he had already loosened his tie. Now he had placed his briefcase on the chair with her purse and was steadily closing the distance between them.

Color instantly sprang to her cheeks and she began to giggle and blush. That look in his eyes was all too familiar. She took a step back, however there wasn’t anywhere to go seeing as she was surrounded by wine glass and their piano. She placed the wine and a hand on the bar to steady herself. “We have dinner plans out tonight.  You best behave.” She tried to compose herself.

He walked past her, admiring the dress she had chosen. “How much time do we have?” he asked firmly, standing directly behind her now, tracing his middle fingers down her arms.

That always sent sparks running over her and then her breathing hitched. She tried to answer him steadily, but it came out in a breathless reply.  “An hour and a half…”

Immediately after she answered, he pulled her body to his fast and hard. He used the top of his head to move hers to the side, exposing more of her neck. He parted his lips to place on her, but barely did so and she exhaled slowly.  His warm breath moved up from the small of her neck to behind her ear as he spoke low, holding her body in his arms now.  “Plenty of time, darling.  I’m thirsty for something tall.”

Bad girls . . .

We all have a devilish side – even those of us who always appear to be ‘good’. How do you know that you’re good, if you’ve never been bad?

” ‘Cause I love them bad girls doing bad things
Lookin’ hot with an attitude
Love them bad girls like a bad dream
Shouldn’t want them, but I do

And I can’t help it, no
Damn, it feels good when you’re messin’ with a bad girl… ”

— ‘Bad Girl’ by MTKO

Setting up Autumn

The seasons are changing, there was no doubt about that. For me that means the mornings are getting cooler, and the days were growing steadily shorter. Already the thoughts of pumpkins, pies, hearty soups, and breads would become a prominent staple in many households around here.

I love this time of year.  The warm colors that emerge, and the patterns that are seen throughout nature.

I spend the morning setting up for the Fall Harvest that would be taking place over the weekend.  What better way to kick off the fall season than with fresh cider and pumpkins?  I knew i had a lot of work ahead of me, and i wanted my set up to have a rustic feel. Using the crates and wood panels was exactly what I needed.

After a few hours it was time for a break. I sat down and leaned against my makeshift bar, tugging at the cap on my head. Overhead, birds were circling and one came down to greet me.  “Hello, little one,” I was shocked when the bird landed on my arm. A smiled and the bird tweeted, like it understood my greeting.  Perhaps it did?

As I sat there, with the bird, surrounded by autumn staples, I let out a sigh of relief. The cool breeze mixing with the bright rays. This morning was simply what I needed.

Thieving squirrels

Have you ever had one of those days where it seemed that everything was going on at once? From the time you open your eyes, till you close them for bed, your day has been nothing but go, go, go. In an effort to get everything done we tend to streamline our focus. One thing at a time, and then another, blocking out everything else so we can stay on task.

I’ve had one of those days – to be honest it’s been a handful of days – where things kept coming at me left and right. Before I have time to finish one task, in comes another.  Before long I’m backlogged and hardly know where to begin. However, while I’m focused on all the big things, smaller things, are going unnoticed.

The thing about little things is, if they are ignored for too long, they become big things. So while we are busy wrapped up and concerned about big issues, pay attention to small things. Or the next thing you know, squirrels are making off with your nuts.
