DO YOU THINK IT’S FAIR?

My sister and I were in a mood again this morning.  We always put on some silly movie we have and laugh or sing along with it.  This mornings selection is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The movie starts out with a couple of my favorite songs: Brandy by the Looking Glass and Mr. … Continue reading DO YOU THINK IT’S FAIR?

IS THIS THE TRUE WAY TO HAPPINESS?

This year started with contemplation – again!  It seems like I always start with that and end up with a mess and more questions than answers.  Since 2020 was so horrific in so many ways, and since it also felt like it produced more angry/hateful feelings than average, my contemplation revolved around happiness. I went … Continue reading IS THIS THE TRUE WAY TO HAPPINESS?

BUSY, BUSY, BUSY-grrr!

BUSY, BUSY, BUSY-grrr! I don’t know how you handle things, but I have got to have my lists.  I am very O.C.D. on keeping things organized, and there are times where all the “to-do’s” just drive me crazy.  Today is one of those “where do I start” days. A couple of years ago I found … Continue reading BUSY, BUSY, BUSY-grrr!

WHAT ARE YOU DOING? My email joyously provides me with so many exciting things.  I read everything from my blogging friend's posts, to handyman tips, to local area sales (even though we are not leaving the house, I can still buy online should the need arise), so simple things like this: Word of the Day … Continue reading

I LEARNED SOMETHING NEW!

I am a learn-a-holic.  Can’t help myself so I guess it falls in the category of O.C.D.  My email inbox this morning brought me a new word: fusty adjective | FUSS-tee Definition 1 British : impaired by age or dampness : moldy 2 : saturated with dust and stale odors : musty 3 : rigidly … Continue reading I LEARNED SOMETHING NEW!

PLEASE KEEP YOUR HUMOR!

The greatest relief I have found in this scary world now is humor.  My own humor and the beautiful humor of friends and family. A very close bunch of family/friends (I label them "family" because they are all much closer to us than just friends.) had their two daughters with their families move to Ohio.  … Continue reading PLEASE KEEP YOUR HUMOR!

FUNNY the things you remember and when…

I was trying to clean up my computer (ha, didn’t get very far) and I came across this poem: ******************** WARNING: When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin … Continue reading FUNNY the things you remember and when…

I WILL NEVER BE A MINIMALIST.

There, I’ve said it.  I have done tons-and-tons of downsizing over the last two decades.  Moving from Denver to our great little patch of heaven in the plains of eastern Colorado helped me to make those changes. We had and over-stuffed, extra-large, moving van (yes – semi size) to bring all of both mine and … Continue reading I WILL NEVER BE A MINIMALIST.

What’s Up With My Weird Dreams?

With old(ish) age comes a variety of oddities.  The one that keeps throwing me off is the weird changes in my body, along with the even weirder medications and the way my body reacts to them.  The latest is a newbie for me. You must understand that I have never been a heavy sleeper, even … Continue reading What’s Up With My Weird Dreams?

Sneaky sisters and exercise tactics.
