Saved My Bacon…

They did!

So I had a moment… at 1:30 in the morning no less! What the heck… Anyway. A routine I have is to take my car for a short drive after it has warmed up so the oil warms more in an effort to help it run easier the next day in these sub-zero temps.

Well… that worked until Friday night… okay… Saturday morning for most folks.

I… in my infinite wisdom… chose to hang a left into a snowy stretch that was just a poorly plowed piece of road, but one that I had driven through a couple of days before. Yep. High centered my jeep… little one unfortunately. I need larger wheels, a higher profile… and smarter choices. I just happened to think that a street should be cleared and I shouldn’t have much trouble with the middle of the road, but I was wrong.

A round of digging and no success and I gave in and called a coworker friend. First thing she did was offer to come out and see what she could do to help. Yep. That meant two more had to leave their cozy homes and all in all I got my adventurous butt saved. Whoo hoo!

Now… the purpose of sharing my….moment. How do you show appreciation when appreciation was expressed and is all they care about? I want to do more, but I know they would rather something simple…


Stay safe and warm and don’t be afraid to make that call for help when you need it. It is great when you realize just how valued you are, and the help you will get when you need it.

Good morning, goodnight wherever you are!


Happy… 27 Below… Whoo!!

Now that you know my greatest dilemma for the moment, you may have an idea why the computer and I are not in close contact quite so much. But I digress…

Happy New Year one and all! Pass it on. Have them pass it on again! Here’s to a new year of creativity that does not require us all to be worried about our next move, whether it is heading out into excessively cold weather, or to the grocery store.

Here’s to a year that brings us with decisions that guide us on a path toward growth and a new plan for ourselves that will make a positive difference in another’s life while benefiting ourselves.

Here’s to me not repeating myself yet one more time as I lay claim to a future that hopefully marks only the beginning of many more great years to come. Its the perfect time to move forward and focus on staying creative and focused on tomorrow!

Are you with me world?!

Let’s do this!


Good morning, goodnight wherever you are!
