Worrying …. It Doesn’t Change A Thing!

The wind is blowing from the southwest this morning and the Fall weather feels more like Winter is right behind. Normally, Mike is the one who gets up and goes out to the garage to feed the dogs, but this week he is gone and I have been up in the dark to feed that […]

Not Sure What to Call This One….

This has been a summer like no other. I have worked more this year than I ever thought my body could possibly take. I sleep away the weekends because I can’t move and I have missed more sunny days because of sleeping the weekend away than I care to remember. I am thankful for the […]

🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my love of the English language and how when I was a kid I would read a Thesaurus just for fun. Somehow in our attempt to “simplify” everything we have created an entire language with emojis and I doubt anyone under the age of 20 knows what a […]

Blissfully Ignorant

I am having trouble keeping my thoughts in order!! Too much to process this week, but I’m sharing anyway. Have a blessed weekend! I am occasionally and painfully reminded that way too often I don’t pay attention to things around me and I remain blissfully ignorant to time/space. I may not notice details like I […]

You Get More Bees with Honey! Honey!

I look at my life in little moments and blocks of time rather than looking at the big picture. I look back at moments when I was growing and learning and it gives me a much more like-able view of who I am since I have gotten older! Now, those moments of growth have turned […]

How Many More?

It’s easy to get caught up in the news this morning; more devastating news about victims, families, more information about the shooters, more partisan politics, more rage, more hate, more sadness, more helpless feelings from ordinary people like me. I feel asleep listening to some of it last night and I had nightmares literally all […]

Dog Days of ….People

The dog days of summer haven’t gotten to me, but the dog days of the negative energy of people is wearing me out!! I think  that it is pretty sad when my son calls almost every morning to ask if I have been yelled at by a customer yet!?  Seriously!  It is a good day […]

Fourth of July 1945

My Dad loved the Fourth of July. The only person who might have loved it more would have been my Grandfather. He was wild about the chance to celebrate (he was wild Irish) and even more to light explosives. When Dad was a kid the Fourth meant that they were going to “the Farm” to […]
