The Crock Pot Brigade Awaits Appetizers In The Making

This group will be here ushering in the New Year with us. I have a whole bunch of appetizers planned to satisfy the hunger of all that can join us.

The “Crock Pot” brigade is awaiting the holiday cuisine we have chosen to make a New Years tradition. Cranberry Sauce Meatballs and hot, cheesy spinach dip… Lil smokies, spicy chicken wings, cheese ball and crackers… Apple filled crescent rolls. Chips and dip and the one request Zoe had for her party, brownies!

I keep trying to invite people to share in the holidays with us but everyone has been too busy to come. Speaks volumes about how much of a loner, I have been. I need to make more friends I suppose. I’m glad to support Zoe in her friendships by hosting lots of Get Togethers, for her friends. I do however feel a real loneliness and longing for friendships lately. All of these icons passing from my youth, remind me how the clock is ticking. If I sit and think about it, the depression of what I have not accomplished but so desire to, would consume my thoughts!  I’m trying not to go there but, I feel it! I’m so grateful for a fresh start, the hope and promise that a New Year brings. My pursuit of happiness and autonomous monetary success can live on in my head. Now, to figure out how to manifest my dreams into some sort of reality…

Something More Than Nothing 

Perhaps, this was the saddest dream crushing reality of 2016 for me on such a personal level… Prompting me to come face to face with my own harshest of realities. “Quit chasing people and dreams that don’t chase you back!” A harsh reality faced with no more illusion as to what if…It’s hard to face that just because you admire someone so much, it’s not necessarily reciprocal! The planets didn’t align for me regarding this dream.

This fool can put this, to rest…

Fool’s Overture-

The weather here in Phoenix has been out of this world beautiful. I spent the afternoon yesterday in the backyard yesterday. It was gorgeous! I’m sure we were the envy of the nation in temps. 

Daughter Britt and family went out of town. I am babysitting my Grandog, Oso. He is a beautiful dog who loves to be around kids! Such a wonderful dog!

If I were to pick my favorite cover that I did this year it is this…

Casual Conversations- true to my life experience in so many ways. This was an attempt at some humor surrounding my mundane existence as a career homemaker/ wanna be musician.

I added another family member to the equation this year. I legally adopted my Granddaughter! Amelia Rose.

May you and yours have a wonderful holiday celebration. Take some time to reflect back on your own life journey in this past year. Figure out what you want to change in 2017. I hope you can find some good and cherished moments as well. Coffee inspired introspection works well lol… My favorite musical accomplishment was the completion of this original!

Getting people to listen to originals is crazy hard to do. Pain in the butt! I had no idea it could be so difficult! So many songwriters out there producing originals, I have no idea how you get people to listen… I am however, pleased with this composition and throwing it out there in the sea of unheard originals on YouTube and SoundCloud. I don’t feel as if people don’t like my music because not enough have even heard my music! 

The Time Is Here-

Happy New Year!

I've been a stay at home Mom for many years...Have earned a PhD in life experience. My oldest is 33 and my youngest is 15. This year, I adopted my 5 year old Granddaughter. On a quest to see all that I can be now. I am a musician, singer/ songwriter. In the process of trying to become marketable. Please visit and subscribe to my YouTube channel Would love to make money doing what I love! I love to do many domestic things also. Nothing I do seems to be profitable. Guess I am at a point in life that I would like to be compensated . My whole life I have given freely. I recently had a the wonderful opportunity to submit my music to Warner Bros Records for consideration to the label! They liked my music but requested that I get in the game by acquiring 20k followers. Appearantly, that what it takes to get signed to a major label! Sure WB, I'm working on it! You have to have a huge following to land a recording contract. Gone are the days where a label can and will make you...
