What I Wore- Fringe


I'm loving the cooler weather and the good vibrations it brings to my life!! Why does it always feel good when you start wearing clothes for a new season. I guess it's that "new beginning" feeling no matter where you get it!!

I bought this fringe jacket from Zara when I was back in Texas about a month ago. I love it!!!


You are also getting a sneak peek at our new bookshelves. They weren't completely finished in these pictures!! 


A similar jacket can be found HERE.




Getting these books out of boxes after several years of storage has been like being reunited with old friends!! I've loved looking through some of my favorites.


Remember Simple Abundance? Oprah made it popular years ago. I've had it all these years and return to it so often!! It can be ordered HERE



 I love that this jacket is lightweight and covers what I prefer to have covered!!



How about you...Do you have any books that you return to over and over? I have many!!

This vest is very similar to my jacket and can be purchased in black. It can be found HERE.

Peak Of The Week- 10-2-19

I let a friend talk me into signing up for a race in the Big Bend area of Texas for next January. She wanted me to run the 20K with her, but I told her I just can't train for that many miles in the winter here!! Lucky for me, she's such a great friend, she agreed to do the 10K. I can handle that!

The great thing about it besides getting to spend a weekend with her and her husband in this area of Texas (I've never been) is that it will force me to get out and run!! I have a goal again, and it feels really good. So-- that is the only thing that got me out the door this morning!! I'm so glad it did!! It was a beautiful, breezy morning here in the mountains of New Mexico. Is it OK that I often refer to them as "my mountains"? Many of my friends here have heard how these mountains helped me heal from tragedy!! I feel like they are my mountains- God placed them here just for me!!!

Happy Wednesday-- The Peak of the Week!! Here are some things piquing my interest this week- along with some recent pictures!!

This is a Chamisa plant. It is blooming all over northern New Mexico right now. It's lovely!!!


Lee Radziwill's Collection At Christie's- I love to see how others live!! I love to go on home tours. I love to see online homes decorated for the seasons. I love to read biographies and memoirs. This article showing some of what will be auctioned from Lee Radziwill's estate caught my eye. Radziwill was the sister of Jackie O. I can't get enough!!!


I'll keep you updated on these leave along my running route!! It's amazing how much the color changes overnight!!

Stages of Dementia- I have shared Dr. Chua before. I love following him on Facebook. This article is a simple look at the stages of dementia.


Company Creates First Alternative For Human Remains- This is happening right in my own backyard. Making stones from a person's cremated ashes. It is an interesting concept. The colors that different people's stones become. How many stones can be created from a person--- All is so fascinating to me. What do you think of this?

I took Scout out for a walk after my run, and we ran into our neighbor. This is her do, Henry. He is so cute. The breed is the same dog from the Because Of Winn Dixie movie. I recently found out they are moving. :( Yet another friend leaving me!!!


What I'm reading:

The Screwtape Letters- I do a long-distance study with a friend that is ongoing! We decided to study C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters. Sad that I've never read it before. I think it will be enlightening!! I'll let you know!

The Perfect Couple- This is my escape read, read when I'm up at 2am, don't have to think book!! It's pretty good too!!

What I'm listening to:

The Next Right Thing- Our daily decisions make up our lives! This is a short and sweet podcast that shares ideas on decisions and life!! Very positive- I'll take it!!

What room I'm concentrating on cleaning or organizing:

This is a tough one!! My house is such a mess right now. I'm still working in the office. I'm loving these new bookshelves!! I'll write a post about them soon. Because I had so many boxes stored everywhere with the books and things to fill the shelves- I have a mess all over!! Shifting boxes out of a guest bedroom closet means also redoing some things in that closet. It's a snowball (or avalanche) of  STUFF!!!

But I did clean my bathrooms this week!! I'm behind on my Clean Mama schedule which I like to follow!!!

It's sweater weather for Scout!!


How are you choosing life lately? I'd love to hear!!!
