Free To Be Yourself

One of the lesser known occurrences of-late, or changes to me…the forty something woman, is that I’m letting my hair go — no more hair color (my natural color is shining through, after 20 some-odd years), my bits of gray are coming through ( I love my little gray hairs), and I’m letting  my tangled mess of hair dread naturally.  Living on an island, it hasn’t taken too long.  But, even still, it’s hard to stay patient through the bad hair days (and they are MANY).

I recently joined a web group of fellow dreadies, called; offering anything/everything you need to know about dreading  your hair the natural way (just letting nature take its course).  Being in my menopausal years, I find myself changing each and every day.  I am so far from the girl/young woman I was 20 years ago.  I now see things (myself), from an inward point-of-view.

I felt compelled to share a few photos of my baby dreads, in all their craziness.  May it inspire you to jump off the ‘normal train’ of monotony, and try something new…to enhance your inner beauty, and the real you…you never before knew.


Boycotting the Power Grid

Writing & Wanderlust

Our power was shut off today–just like that!  With the flip of a switch (or whatever they do to shut off power) everything went quiet.  Baby was watching Veggietales on VHS (Yes…!  We still watch those.  :  )P  ) and all-of-a-sudden, a quiet click…and silence.  She looked at me, and I just thought for a moment we had overloaded the breaker.  Then I realized, we were only running one little T.V. and the fridge.  That wouldn’t cause a shut down.

Then…I remembered that pink paper that had arrived in the mail about a week or so ago; the one that said we needed to pay our bill by such-and-such date, or ZAP!  –We’d be cut off.  Ooops!  Guess I forgot to note that little ‘pink slip’.  So…I located the oh-so-colorful notice, and…sure-enough, the last day to pay was…(YIKES) yesterday!  ‘Guess that might have had something to do with our lack of power.  :  /

New Dining Room in Caravan RV Trailer

Vintage Caravan Travel Trailer Remodeling

Caravan & Travel Trailer Remodeling


It’s raining today, so looks like we’ll have to wait til another day to continue with the construction of our new pantry in our ‘once gutted out’ vintage Caravan RV trailer.  –The place we’ve called home for a year-and-a-half now.

It hasn’t been easy living in the very small dwelling (apx 179 square feet), while we’re remodeling…with a young child who is VERY curious and always verybusy.  :  P  Still, we’ve kept at it, and now…finally, we have a pretty functional space where there once was an eye-sore of a mess.

On his day off from work, my Hubby Nico worked non-stop yesterday to panel up the pantry; having to cut each section by hand (with a saw), since the electrice saw wasn’t cutting straight enough.  We’ve still-yet to get the doors finished.  But, because of the rain, it’ll go put off til yet-another-day.
