To My Friend The Brit

Eyes closed shut on a chilly night; To dream of things far away. Imagined sounds of  uncontrollable laughter; That I hope we’ll be sharing one day. Glasses raised for a toast, cuddled near to the bar; We’ll share stories of life, like old friends. This is my hope for our future my friend; Happy Friday,…

With Change Comes Happiness

Another birthday come and gone, and this one was one I will remember.  This past year has had it’s ups and downs, but it has been, by far, the best one I’ve had in ages.  I celebrated my birthday three times this year.  The first was a family afair, which took place on Thanksgiving day…

Too Busy Living

It’s been some time since I’ve been on here to write.  I wish I could say it was because nothing is happening in my life, but that’s not the case.  I guess I’ve lost my motivation to share it all.  I was expressing this to a good friend the other day, and he encouraged me…

Changing Expectations

The older I get, the more I believe there are no “right” ways to live.  There are only our perceptions of what is right for ourselves.  I’ve noticed this past year that my views of what life should look like have changed.  Actually, it’s only been the past few months that real thought change has…

Who Did I Call?

Holy Crap I’m tired.  It’s been a long, productive work week, and I’m beat.  I made it through the whole week without wine — pat on the back.  To reward myself for this accomplishment, I will cut my workout short, put on my PJs, and savour a couple glasses of my favorite vino.  Do my…

Men and Veganism

My little blog received a little face lift today.   I had a hankering for change.  Maybe the change of seasons in all it’s pumpkin spice glory inspired her little make over.  Yes, my blog is a she — obviously.   My blog is smart, pretty, charming, and spunky, so she’s definitely female. There’s no need for…

Mooooove Over Summer of 2017

  Move over Summer, bad ass Fall has rolled into town, and he means business.  Ol’ Mother Nature has bitch slapped me good.  “Wake the F*ck up Ms. SG, WTF is wrong with you.”   The cooler temperatures have eased the forest fire smoke, finally.  I’m guessing the clear air is responsible for clearing my…

Babble Babble Babble, Wine, RHyme

100 bottles of wine on the wall, 100 bottles of wine….. what I wouldn’t give to have that wall.  WINE!  I love wine!  I am a self-professed wineaholic.   Perhaps my European heritage is to blame for this.  A love for wine most definitely could be genetic; at least that’s what I’m going to keep…

Heart’s Secret Desire

  A secret love has grown with time; Yet it will never take a breath. I keep it in this heart of mine; Forever till my death. For reasons only known to me; Friendship is our fate. If only love was meant to be; For you my heart would wait. We’d never meet the needs…

Doctor, Doctor… Give me the News

  It’s Doctor Day!  For the past few months, I’ve spoke little to nothing about my anxiety. Why or why?  Because I haven’t felt anxious.  Back in April, I decided to go back on meds.  It was a really hard decision to make, but in the end, it was the right one.  It took a…

Childhood Memory

What takes me back to yesterday; but a memory from the past. Playing nicky nicky nine doors; wishing summer nights would last. Imaginary play mates; I had forgotten all about. Time travels much too quickly; for that I have no doubt. Fast forward to the present; so much in life has changed. The child I…

Short and Sweet

What I thought was nothing has turned into something very special.  I’ve discovered a man I completely misunderstood.  We parted because we couldn’t find each other, but the distance gave us time to figure it out.  The thought of losing one another was what we needed to communicate.  He isn’t at all what I had…
