Adventures in Life after the Jump

I sat down in the wee hours of the morning this morning (the ones right after 12) and tried to figure out what this blog is about without limiting it, and yet  I want to tell a complete story in this transition time (and post pics of my cute animals, but hey, it fits!).

I find it helpful to sort of do a stream of consciousness thing and start writing words that come to mind when I’m trying to figure something it.  It’s how I came up with the name for the blog.  I started writing words that I thought described me, and voila! it popped out at me AND the url was available.  Double cool on that count.

Anyway, here’s my stream of consciousness about the blog and what I want to talk about.


Transition
Art
Spirituality
Vocation
Holistic view of life
Creativity, Spirituality,

Exploring a life transition
Understanding life as an artist
Deepening Spirituality

Becoming un-fragmented
De-fragmenting life
Developing a holistic view of life

Making sense of life
(nope, not an over-achiever, why do you ask?  Wait, what’s that, Mom? I am an overachiever? well… uh… so are you! so there! :-))

Journeying to a holistic understanding of what it means be

And then it hit me… Ultimately this blog is about…

Drumroll please….

Adventures in life after the jump.

What does that mean?  It means I want to write posts that fit the following description:
Celebrating life from the day-to-day to the spectacular, and learning how spectacular the day-to-day can be as I live into a transition time and discover not just how to be, but how to live holistically and in balance.

So to start off, I’m giving you the picture of this mornings sweet winter sunrise as viewed off my deck. :-)

Purple Ducky Designs

I’ve been up to some t-shirt designs that you can order on a variety of different shirts and sweatshirts from Skreened.  I’ve ordered from this company before and not only do they have organic cotton tees available, but they also ship in compostable bags. yay!

*Note:  all designs available in both men’s and women’s shirts, kids shirts, infant onesies, tote bags, and a hoodie, simple click on the design and then customize it!

Visit my store! Squirrel!!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it… woof?

Twas a snow day at Havenknoll
And all through the house
My fuzzies were sleeping
and couldn’t be roused

(okay so Lacey was more like a little kid that kept looking out the windows)

(and not wanting her pics taken)

(and Adelaide was more interested in purring at the birds, but hey, I’m trying to rhyme here! and no this pic isn’t upside-down)


Their paws were all curled up
To keep them all warm
While I spread some bird seed
and fed birds in the storm.

(I love the Tufted Titmouse’s little mohawk!)

And then Otto decided he had to check out a noise, and it turned out to be one of my neighbors 4-wheeling in the snow, so then he had to go bark at the neighbor to make him (or her, whoever was so bundled, I couldn’t tell who it was) go away.

See his hackles?

Get off my property!!!

Mo-om, why won’t you come bark with us?!?

GET OFF MY PROPERTY!!!

yeah, they totally weren’t feeling my poem and snow day coziness. *sigh*
