Montage Monday:) A Week In A Peek

13 Apr

Keep busy at something: a busy person never has time to be unhappy.Robert Louis Stevenson


It was a fun busy week. I don’t have “time to be unhappy.” The days are getting longer… well, a day can’t really get any longer than 24 hours, but the daylight hours are getting longer . This allows for longer evening walks, sunsets, and glorious days.

A week in a peek… Happy Monday, my friends. ❤️

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”

A very lovely and lively week, welcoming Spring and noticing the beautiful things in the world with my heart.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

~Maya Angelou


Another week has flown by. Between changing clocks for Daylight Saving Time, Spring forward, and witnessing Spring’s fickle weather sequences, I don’t know if I’m coming or going. I’m so confused. But, one thing I know for sure, life is good, beautiful and abundant if only you see it with eyes that see with passion and a heart that feels with compassion. Amen.

A week in a peek…. Happy Monday, my friends.

An amazing week!

Montage Monday:) A Week In A Peek and My Magnificent Sunset

16 Mar

“It’s funny, when you’ve been sick and haven’t been out of the house in a few days, you tend to appreciate the little things just a little more. Like the warm sun on your face, the birds singing, the trees bursting with buds, and the magnificent sunset.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


It sure was an interesting week. Great days, bad days, but I’m grateful for every day.

Now, for tonight’s magnificent sunset…


Montage Monday, Honoring My Mom, and International Women’s Day

9 Mar

“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” —Maya Angelou


My Montage Monday… a week in a peek…

A fine week with fine friends and fine weather.

Now, a brief tribute to my angel mother on this International Women’s Day.

My mother was a hurricane with endless colors, as Ms. Angelou quoted. She had endless energy with a constant thirst for knowledge and boundless love for everything and everyone who knew her. I always remember her working two jobs, taking care of her family and friends, taking classes and learning how to do everything she put her mind to. She was the perfect role model and perfect example of an International Woman.

Trinidad Aguirre-Armenta was a self-taught artist, only to start expressing herself in her paintings after she retired when she was 65. She loved creating scenes from her Mexican heritage and Catholic Faith.
These are just a few of her paintings.
This one is my favorite. A young lady musician teaching and encouraging a young girl how to play the guitar and how to love music.

You are missed MOM. I hope you’re painting, dancing, laughing, singing, and playing music in heaven.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global holidaycelebrated annually on March 8 to commemorate the cultural, political, and socioeconomic achievements of women.[3] It is also a focal point in the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence against women.[4]

Montage Monday and Miss Pat’s Birthday

2 Mar

  1. “A birthday is a day that brings
    Much celebration and so we sing,
    A very Happy Birthday to You
    Our life would not be complete without You.”
    ~Catherine Pulsifer
Miss Pat loves Elvis. When she blew out her candle, we almost expected him to walk in the door singing “Love Me Tender.”

Such a sweet lady. Literally, she’s “THE COOKIE LADY,” and we all carry around quite a few extra pounds to prove it.

Now, for my week in a peek. It was a pretty slow, cold, scary week, with hail, crazy winds and constant rain. But, we are still alive and kickin’. Life is good.

It certainly was a very crazy week. A couple of days ago it was 7 below zero and today it was 70°. Crazy!!!! Welcome to Texas.

“The uneventful day is a precious gift.”— Abraham Verghese

Oh my, I have SO MANY precious gifts if that is true. Many uneventful days, but perhaps that is a good thing.

Happy Monday, my friends! 🤗

“Even though February was the shortest month of the year, sometimes it seemed like the longest.”
― JD Robb


February is here already. January came in like a lion and out like an old exhausted wounded lion with a mask on, distancing and washing his big ‘ol paws. I’m optimistic that the days and weeks and months will get better. Call me crazy… most do. ❤️

A week in a pleasant peek…
