I spent the morning running around to fabric stores looking for material to re-upholster two of my dining room chairs... no luck!

I'm in a funk again with my house so the cheapest thing that I always do to perk me up and my house is paint, re-upholster, and make new throw pillows. Since I can't find the material I want it's going to have to be only painting this weekend.

Tired of my red walls and I'm getting close to being tired of my crosses, but I have too many to get rid of and they all have a story behind them. Once the wall is painted I'll make a decision if they should go back up. Lately I'm tired of everything so hopefully painting is going to get me out of my slump.

I have a new addition to my house that my grandson Andrew( 5 years old) made for me. When I came home from California one of my cats had disappeared so he made me a stone in memory of her. Do you see the cat on the stone?

Time to get back to work... Happy Saturday!

Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitable bring about right results.

I was drawn to the smiles on their faces and the love in their eyes. They met, accepted each other, and acted as if they had been lifelong friends. Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…


Yesterday I went in for my hair consultation for my locs. It's a little overwhelming trying to decide the size of locs, but this is what I decided.

Tuesday is the big day and I can't wait!

It's interesting though the responses I get from people when I say that I'm getting locs. I've gotten everything from that's interesting to don't you just let your hair get really dirty and don't comb it?

I'm well aware of how most of the world stereotypes black women by their hair. I think I've shared in past blogs how people approach me or don't approach me depending on the style of my hair.

I decided a few years ago that natural was going to be it for me. No more chemical relaxers and no flatiron on my hair daily - I'm just going to do me and people can make all the prejudgements that they want. If you're going to make a decision about me based on my hair I don't want you in my life anyway.      

I decided to grow my hair out due to a bad h…
