Here is the thing – I am not a writer. I have a lot to say, and even though my heart is poetic my hand is prosaic.
During this 2020 Covid-19 quarantine, I have happily spent time writing. I have also enjoyed visiting other blogs and reading the journeys others have shared. I found this blogger, Why Girls are Weird, and she had a post titled Happy Friday and she encouraged us to follow her lead and write 10 things we are happy for from this last week. Although I don’t usually act on something like this, I feel there is so much negative vibes in the air I figure this is a positive addition to my Friday morning. So here it goes:
1- Being home during the day with my kiddos.
2- Teaching my daughter to sew.
3- Giving my son a haircut (oh, my poor boy!)
4- Cooking dinner without the pressure of time.
5- Having quiet time to write.
6- Playing board games with the kiddos
7- Sleeping in (even an hour is bliss!)
8- Being able to run (while following social distancing.)
9- Daily hugs from my husband (reminds me how loved I am!)
10. Having the essential to live comfortably during this quarantine.
I encourage you to write your list down. Also, please comment and share with me a few things you are happy for this Friday! Lets keep Happy Friday alive!

I was talking with a friend recently how I couldn’t do the journey she is currently on. She reminded me that there are things I do that she can’t – like running deep in the woods. I took a few days to ponder that, because there is a lot to learn from it.
Okay guys, I have a confession.
I wasn’t always an introvert.
This question popped into my mind: how does one transitions from being more introvert or extrovert if one or the other wasn’t obvious at birth? We tell introverts they “need to come out of their shell” but have you ever heard someone tell an extrovert they need to go into their shell. I don’t know about you, but I have dealt with a few extreme extroverts who I wanted to tell to back off.

Have you found yourself wanting more, but not knowing what that more was? How did you find it? And when you found it, did you realize right away you were looking for it? Or did it take time before you realized it was something you needed in your life?
Here it is March, and in my neck of the woods there is a record amount of snowfall in one month – ever! Some places are reporting over 26 feet of snow in one month! Needless to say, snow has caused significant havoc in the surrounding communities. The rapid snowfall has even closed down a major interstate multiple times. I found myself stranded on the wrong side of the summit for over 24 hours.
