Throwback Post: Love Cards With Walks and Reiki While Camping


July 19 2015:

Took about 5 hours yesterday, and we finally got finished with his post and the “Love Cards”. Pass the love …. xoxo … From Team Member T … “I want to help my family get to the 18p- conference this year so I am selling love cards. You pass the cards around to spread the love! On the back you can add your own messages. It’s important to me to attend the conference because …”

I just love sitting outside in the shade while it’s still cool and there’s a soft breeze ruffling the tree leaves and my hair. So yummy to the heart! May you have your own yummy moments today! xoxo

Spent the afternoon being creative and then we all made a sign for our hotel room door at the upcoming C18 conference! xoxoxo

Suppose I needed reminded today of who I am … This post it attached to my dress this morning. I left it there as I felt it was a little message for me. Now. It’s hanging in my hair. And while having further “strong discussions” with Thomas today about limiting his time on digital devices, Thomas noticed this heart had formed from water out of the hose. Just a little respond with love reminder. I love Love!! xoxo

Happy Sumbeamy Saturday Y’all! A little something that stood out for me this morning, for myself and anyone else experiencing a storm. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to experience the windstorms of my life for without them I would not get the chance to BE the true ME … “Should you shield the canyons from the windstorms, you would never see the beauty of the carvings.” -Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

E is for Expectation…”This journey will be much more fulfilling and full of joy, when we are able to live in the present moment and break the habit of being so rooted in our expectations. Expectations can be limiting. Once we loosen our grip on our expectations, we may find we have freed ourselves to allow an unexpected outcome to go way beyond anything we could have imagined.” Great book, Camilla Downs! I am thoroughly enjoying every page of it.” -Melanie G.

Heard some Rolling Stones this morning … always makes me think of my Daddy …. here I am visiting him with my big hair in 1992 down in Nawlins … Without knowing it, Daddy taught me there’s usually a way around, over, under or through rules!! Love you Daddy … thanks for always being there for ME!! Even though he’s not on FB thought this might bring some fond memories of your own back to you …

Throwback Post: Car Wash Adventures While Shopping and Walking


July 29 2014:

When the day calls for a wee mini adventure … “Working at the car wash … Get your car washed today” … Thomas and Lillian weren’t that impressed with my singing!! We had a ball! Rosey is so happy to be clean! She got vacuumed too … Love a nice clean car.

Thomas and I went to Great Basin Community Food Coop today while Lillian was in therapies. When we got home he said that was the best grocery store ever! I asked why and he said cause everybody was talking to one another and to the customers. Plus, we got a big cup of their home made soup! YUM! I agree with Thomas … It’s a great and friendly place. We will be going there more often! We all had another fun walk tonight! xoxo

Throwback Post: Garden with Spa Day and Smoky Sunset


August 25 2014:

Just had a wonderful release this morning! Almost nothing like connecting with feelings, letting the flood gates open (aka eye sweating like crazy) and feeling the weight being lifted! Thank you to myself and to Dee Wallace!! Right after the eye sweating stopped, I received an email asking if I was available to sub a few days at HDMS. Did I tell y’all I got licensed to be a Nevada substitute teacher? Then I received an email that I’d been selected as a PAID writer for Smart Mom blog. Wahoo!! Bring it on! I AM that girl! Sending waves of love through the digital World!


I was whisked away to a beautiful, tranquil garden this afternoon. This is the amazing preschool/kindergarten garden at HDMS. Was my first time seeing it … WOW! What a beautiful space for kiddos to learn and grow!


August 25 2013:

Thoroughly enjoying my alone time! Having a home made Spa Day at the TLC Casa …. Long Reiki session, then a long soak in a hot tub with lavender and my coffee and water right next to me, then an amazingly refreshing Mudpot mask (100% natural clay from Black Rock Desert … Thanks Amanda Thiebaud Horn), then Fiji water and a lavender infused neck wrap. Last, the chef made me grits and toast with some almond milk! I give it 10 stars out of 10! Thanks to The Romano Duo for having Thomas and Lillian for a sleepover last night! Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I feel amazing!!!!

By sunset last night the smoke seemed to have cleared a tiny bit ….. Not so much now. Glad I stood outside for a few minutes last night during the short clearing!


August 25 2012:

Did y’all know there’s a video journey to accompany the “D iz for Different” book? It’s just 8 views short of hitting 200 views!

Look where I got to have dinner tonight? Thank you Donna Holland and Phil … What a beautiful night, gorgeous view, yard and garden …. filled with delicious food & wine … and a night full of laughter and fun!!

Throwback Post: Library Days With Soup and the Dentist


September 19 2015:

Team TLC library day! Bonus: Craft day too! Thomas and I picked out pieces to be a part of a charity quilt and they sewed them together on the spot. Thomas loved the loom! Oh my gosh. So grateful today was our library day and for the kindness and sharing of those who love what they do!


September 19 2014:

And then I made this yumminess! Oh gosh! Its good! The little bit of fall weather had me craving soup. Fixed that!

No school today meant going for our library trip one day early! YAY!


September 19 2013:

Relaxing and inspiring stop after Lillian’s dentist appointment. Shadow picture of mine and Lillian’s feet!

Picture of Lillian right before her dentist appointment today! She was so nervous cause she was getting xrays this time. I’m so grateful I gave myself the gift of becoming a Reiki practitioner … Gave her Reiki while we were waiting for the dentist so she was able to calm down. YAY Lillian! She did great!

Throwback Post: Subbing With Dishes While Going Back to School and Playing in the Water


August 27 2015:

Got to sub for the Creative Writing class again yesterday. We talked a little about judgments and then wrote about something beautiful and something ugly and what makes it so. Melt my heart to pieces with some of what they shared. One in particular, “Beauty in people is something you feel when around another person and not how a person looks.” I left a love note for Ms. Robin in her zen garden.


August 27 2014:

My favorite part of “Back to School” night for Lower El (Thomas) was the mini nutrition education to the parents from another parent who is a nutrition/fitness expert! I listed that I wanted to come in and share with students how to read labels and ingredients on food items. What to avoid and what is okay, etc .. Favorite quotes from her, “Natural doesn’t mean anything. There is no 3rd party agency regulating the word natural on packaging.” And “It’s not do as I say not as I do. We have to show the kids by example when it comes to eating good nutrient dense foods.” I LOVE that lady!! YAY!! YAY!!! YAY!!!


August 27 2013:

Remember the dishes I unpacked during my purging this summer? One of the coffee cups decided this morning that it was done being a coffee cup. Jumped right out of my hand onto the tile floor! Decorated the stove, floor, my dress and dishwasher with pretty brown coffee …. and broke into many pieces! I’m still so HappY I unpacked them and use them every day …. think of my Mammaw Downs every time I hold one of the dishes. She gave me this set when I was about 17 years old.

Eye sweating moment for Team Member C … I stayed in the car while Thomas went inside Lillian’s therapy center to use the restroom. A beautiful young lady using a walker was headed in behind him. He stopped and held the door for her! YAY Thomas! He inspires me so much! Now he’s outside picking up trash off the street and sidewalk!


August 27 2012:

“Doing fractions” … This was Thomas’ answer last week when I asked him Thursday what his favorite part of the day at school was … Hmmmm … Okay Mr. T … Rock ON!!


One batch of almond raisin cookies DONE … Now Team TLC is going for a walk … Yum and it feels so good outside!!! (gluten free if anyone wants the recipe)
