I’ve spent most of my life in Oklahoma. Currently and for the last 10 years, I’ve resided in Tulsa, where my daughters and grandchildren also live.

I like to accent my decor with shades of red

About Where I Live:

I currently live in a one-bedroom single-level apartment with a big fenced patio where I garden in containers. I have flowers and veggies and herbs and even a Japanese maple in a pot.

But in about a month I’m moving. Not far. Just a few miles. But moving is moving and all that entails. Not looking forward to all the work!

I will then have 2 bedrooms and bathrooms, whereas now I have 1 of each. I won’t have a fenced-in concrete patio. But I will have a small patio with a roof and I can garden outside of that area some.

The Kitties:

I’m a bit worried about Ivy and Gracie. About how they’ll handle moving.

Ivy is my 3-year-old rescue cat. I lost my sweet Yorkie Charlie on June 28, 2021, and my heart is still broken.

Gracie, a six months old white cat with ginger accents, joined our little family in 2021. I was told she looks like a flame-tip Siamese. She has the prettiest blue eyes.

Family:

I have 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren, ranging in age from 7 – 17.

The oldest daughter flips and leases houses, and sells a house here and there. (Oh, and I sometimes post about her flip houses once she’s got it staged and ready to sell.)

My younger daughter works in insurance. She plans medical insurance for employers to provide for their employees.

My Dog Babies That Have Crossed The Rainbow Bridge:

These are photos of Charlie and Abi, the two Yorkies I had that has now crossed The Rainbow Bridge. I have cried buckets of tears.

Abi died May 10, 2018, and I lost my Charlie on June 28, 2021. My heart breaks every time I think of them.

They will forever live in my heart.

I absolutely adore gardening. The feel of my hands digging in the dirt.

The above images are of flowers and plants on my patio where I currently live. They were all taken last summer, 2021.

Gardening is my soul’s desire. And I also really enjoy growing house plants. They are pretty and decorative while at the same time cleaning the air you breathe.

Come check out the blog and find out what might interest you. I tend to cover a little bit of everything.

Some Posts To Get You Started:

I write a lot about books because I love reading. I usually read at night before bedtime. And I tend to read a book every day or so.

I also am really into British crime shows and dramas. I am now officially hooked on Acorn TV and Britbox.

Oh my, have you ever seen “Vera?” She’s an older female cop who captures your heart, even though she’s kind of crotchety. I absolutely adore Vera!

Streaming TV, Books & Music

I also love to write about decorating. I’ve been rearranging rooms for as long as I’ve had rooms to rearrange!

You can read some of my decorating posts here. I tend to be kind of eclectic in style. I like farmhouse, cottage, and boho style decorating and tend to mix them up.

One of the greatest things about blogging, which I’ve been doing here for 12 years now, is all the photos I get to take.

I love being out in nature, and when I am, you’ll see my camera around my neck.

And I’m a gardener. Give me a little slice of the outdoors and I’m going to plant something in it. You can read some of my gardening posts here.

Oh, and I can’t forget to warn you that I shave my head. This began with COVID and I’m still shaving it, as I don’t want to go into a salon. And really, I love the convenience and the money I save.

And So I Shaved My Head

Obviously the first two photos below are of on me different days I shaved my head. The bottom photo is of me when I was younger.

See, I had lots of hair. I know all about hair. IT’S JUST HAIR!

So I guess, in summation, I am a book-reading, informal decorator, and avid gardener who shaves her head.

Come join in and see what all the buzz is about. (It’s kind of boring sometimes because I am a homebody, but I try to put a little kick in every post).

I’m Moving!

I’ll be moving January 26, 2022, and you’ll get to watch me move all the furniture around till I’m satisfied and decorate my heart out in my new digs. Come visit me and the girls (kitties)!

I collect old bottles

I also write quite a bit about what I’m thinking about, reflecting on my past and other topics. Below are some of those posts.

I also have written about my divorce 10 years ago:

Come check me out on Pinterest. It’s really the only social media I deal with.
