IS BEING HUMANE ENOUGH?

The anger is everywhere.  Why?  I understand that our Protect and Serve departments need an overhaul, but it seems to be going far beyond that. Shouldn't simply being a decent human being toward another human being be the top priority? I have been around since 1959 and have seen a ton of protests and riots: … Continue reading IS BEING HUMANE ENOUGH?

SHORT AND SIMPLY HELPFUL.

WRITE IT DOWN – everywhere I go!  Sticky notes all over the place (note: did NOT say house as they are in my car as well-eek), note pads and pen or pencil in almost every room, in my vehicle, and in my purse – never leave home without it.  I recently added a voice recorder … Continue reading SHORT AND SIMPLY HELPFUL.

EVERYTHINGS IS BEAUTIFUL.

No, I am not talking about flowers or the song by Ray Stevens (you can view it here), I am just taking a moment out of my crazy day/life to see what is right in front of me. It is spring in Colorado, and the flowers are starting to come out and play. The fruit … Continue reading EVERYTHINGS IS BEAUTIFUL.

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!

JUST STOP IT!!

There is a difference between "precaution" and "panic." I have to admit, what is going on here in the U.S. (I am talking about the closings and shutdowns) is a first for me.  I have been through all kinds of things in my short 60-year old life: Floods Tornados Bankruptcy Rape Losing a child (he … Continue reading JUST STOP IT!!

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.

Will We Deserve It?

Big Brother is watching but not listening.

How To Know If You Are A LEARN-A-HOLIC?

I have taken a ton of classes over the years.  Many of the classes were just to gain extra knowledge in a specific area.  The funny thing about me is that I never received an actual degree for anything. To this day, I still feel that having that piece of paper hanging on a wall … Continue reading How To Know If You Are A LEARN-A-HOLIC?
