Why I No Longer Want To Be Normal

From the moment I was born, I was weird. I didn’t come to have that moment of revelation for many years. I thought every six year old was completely obsessed with chickens. I thought everyone wrote (and read!) books on them and spent every waking moment thinking about them and dreaming about a future in … Continue reading Why I No Longer Want To Be Normal

Top Three Favorite Crafts

Hey friends! When I was younger, I absolutely loved crafts. I spent so much time knitting, sewing and crocheting. I also enjoyed attempting to cross stitch and embroider. I loved to make dolls and stuffed animals and bags. They weren't professional or adultish, but I think I did a fairly good job for my age. … Continue reading Top Three Favorite Crafts

Random Life Update: April 2022

I can't believe that it is already MAY. Seriously, where is life going?! It is strange. It feels like it creeping by and flying by at the same time. April was a full month. There was a lot of celebrating, comfort zone stretching, and freezing cold days. We got SNOW. SNOW, you guys! And not … Continue reading Random Life Update: April 2022

6 Books You’ll Always Find Me Reading

Heyo everyone! Since my last post focused on books, I thought I would give it a companion. Today I’ll be sharing the six categories of books that I read from. Most of the time, I have all six of these categories going at once. I’ve tried reading just one at a time, but I can’t. … Continue reading 6 Books You’ll Always Find Me Reading

{Very Small, Very Cheap} Book Haul

Since the beginning of 2022, I’ve been plotting. *chuckles darkly* I’ve really wanted to get some real books (aka not digital ones) and spent much time narrowing down my very long list and then selecting several of the cheapest ones.

Random Life Update: March 2022

March was an interesting month. *shrugs* Not as bad as February, but it had elements that made it very hard to enjoy. One in particular. *looks towards my sugar glider cage* Back in December, I came up with a brilliant idea to challenge myself and do hard things. My plan was to do one hard … Continue reading Random Life Update: March 2022

Farewell, Sweet Creature

If you read my last post here, you know that my sugar glider Dreamer was very sick. She ended up having surgery to remove the poop stuck in her colon. She wasn’t expected to survive the surgery because she was so small and it was so invasive. When they took her in, I prayed that … Continue reading Farewell, Sweet Creature

Strength of Surrender

My sugar glider Dreamer is very sick and in the vet hospital. I don’t know exactly what caused her problems. I do know, however, that in this experience God is teaching me to trust him. To surrender to him. A few weeks ago Dreamer once again started struggling with constipation. I didn’t think much of … Continue reading Strength of Surrender

Random Life Update: February 2022

*crawls to the computer and begins to type while falling asleep* I can't remember much of what we did in February. This is where journals come in very helpful. It's amazing how quickly the human mind forgets the mundane, very boring days in between the ones filled with excitement or fear. The month started off … Continue reading Random Life Update: February 2022

Will You stay?

He catches my downcast gaze and whispers, “I promise you, I won’t leave you.” I look away and wrap my arms around my knees. “I don’t believe you.” “I love you!” He says passionately. “Isn’t that enough?” “You’ll leave me.” I fly from him, leaving him to wonder what goes on inside of my fickle … Continue reading Will You stay?

Random life update: January 2022

Another January has come to a close! The month was filled with a lot of fun stuff. It started, of course, with all of us getting sick. Yoveil got Covid first and it passed on through the family. I was really hoping to avoid it. I took all of the wonderful precautions. But, alas, it … Continue reading Random life update: January 2022

Lies of Personal Truth

Truth is whatever we want it to be. Your truth might be different than mine, but who cares? We’re both right and if you say otherwise, you are a judgmental idiot. Total truth does not exist. That’s what our society tells us. From movies to books to friends, we hear it played over and over … Continue reading Lies of Personal Truth
