Yesterday was a relaxing day for me since I had the house to myself for most of the day. I love my solitude and its been a long time since I've experienced it.
I was able to have a phone conversation with no interruptions, surf the web for new boots, and actually drink and enjoy several cups of coffee... loving life! But all good things must come to an end  -  today I'm going to tackle the dreaded jacuzzi room that has become my storage. I really want someone to pull the jacuzzi out and make the room a sitting area/ closet/arts and craft room. I have visions of that room being my go to place for peace and quiet.                                                                                                                  

Does Trading Spaces still exist?  If not, HGTV needs to come help me do a makeover asap!

Time to get to work!

Have a fabulous Sunday!

Design is coming to grips with one's real lifestyle, one's real place in the world. Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one's well- being.

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…
