From the Depths of the Ocean, ‘Mermaid Tears’, An Ode to the Sea

Midsummers Night Eve has passed and we are at the height of summer and as the weather improves, my thoughts turn to the sea and all its wonders. Living as I do on the edge of the Atlantic, the sea has been a constant presence in my life.

The sea for all our advances in technology is still very much a mysterious place like no other. The world beneath the waves is utterly unlike that of those who live on land. It can be terrifying, overwhelming and deadly but it is also achingly beautiful, healing and magical. Continue Reading Here: THE GUARDIANS OF GAIA

Tips for Safer Summer Drives by Chris Woolston

My hubby and I were talking big dreams and goals the other day. The subject of travel came up. We have goals to move around to a few places in the next 10 years. Washington State, California, Hawaii and Italy (remember I said big goals) are on the list. We’d love to do all of them and live there a short time. Well maybe a couple could be longer 😉

But as the conversation went on we realized with all these big travel plans and dreams, we left out road trips! Discovering our own country with small to big road trips! We’d love to have a sweet ride like these (pictured) but we’ve also been looking into other kinds of RV’s. We have a Jeep though, so traveling isn’t so bad. Day trips are amazing and since my husband travels a lot for work we don’t always get to see stuff together. So some road trips are definitely on our radar for summer. I’ve kept this Sunday Blog Share for great tips as we are easing on into summer time 🌞

This Sunday’s Blog Share – A to Z Foods

 

A to Z Foods: A list of 26 foods that I either love or hate, one for each letter, a challenge posed to any readers who would like to participate.  I saw this at this-is -my-truth-now.  Maybe it’s the foods your mom made you when you were a kid… oh… Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! xoxo

 

As a follow-up to last week’s fears from A to Z, this week we’re focusing on the foods we either love or absolutely hate (whichever you prefer), continuing the trend of the seventh day, ending the week on Sunday, as a list (we know I love them) of sorts that provides more in depth knowledge about me.

Rules

  1. Pick something that starts with that letter and add it to your own list. Don’t think about it… just come up with a couple ideas in under five seconds and choose the best of the bunch.
  2. It can be a hate or love, but not a specific restaurant or brand! I chose 13 things I loved and 13 things I hated. I’m all for equal opportunity!
  3. This week it’s foods you either love or hate… but next week will be something else. Add in any extra comments if you need to explain.
  4. It’s a fun game, but if you are nominated and DO NOT want to participate, you don’t have to. Just ignore it! Totally OK.
  5. You may not have been nominated, but you can totally participate by following these rules.
  6. Post it as a reply on the person’s blog where you found it. Also post it on your own blog as a new post.
  7. Should we use a tag so we can see all the responses? Suggestions… AtoZFood
  8. This may not go anywhere if there is no participation other than me. And that’s OK. The 365 Daily Challenge was about me to start, so I cannot expect or force anyone else.
  9. Have fun and get to know your online friends. Tell us when you post your 26 items.  Thanks!

This Sunday’s Blog Share (a lil late) – Searching for Happiness – PT 1: Body Gentleness

HNCK8961

Kindness to self is something so overlooked and very underrated. Yet it’s something, if we do, will not only make us feel better, but will extend outward to the world in which we interact with. We take care of everyone else around us and take care of our jobs and homes, but self is always last on the list. Take some steps to change that and your life will reflect the care you give yourself. Thanks to Scale It Simple for a much needed read ♥️
