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!

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?

Is The World Made Up Of Grape Jelly?

I remember that most things on the farm were done with lots of people.  This meant that those that help got to share.  Veggies were hot water bath canned, and fruits into preserves or jelly’s all with teams of people – except for the wild grapes.  That was my mom’s personal passion. Now, you have … Continue reading Is The World Made Up Of Grape Jelly?

SHORT, SIMPLE, AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN?

Once in a while, I get an email share that I wish would have been circulated much earlier.  This is one of those examples: 5 Ways to Save Energy During Quarantine Craig Gustafson Updated: Apr. 24, 2020 The guys at Familyhandyman.com sent this to my inbox date, 5/7/20, but I noticed it was updated from … Continue reading SHORT, SIMPLE, AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN?

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.

MORE SHORT AND SUPPORTIVE STUFF.

This one is because most all of us are staying home and starting to get really bored.  You may also have been among the panicked and ran out to buy a ton of stuff (needing it or not) in preparation of the virus “stay at home” order.  Now what? You may have grabbed things that … Continue reading MORE SHORT AND SUPPORTIVE STUFF.

VIDEOS, MY LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP.

I love movies.  I hate ads.  There should be a time and a place for everything.  I don't think there is anymore, especially when it comes to video types of information. I understand that the reason for advertising on TV, radio, and the internet are so that the station or website can afford to run.  … Continue reading VIDEOS, MY LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP.

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!
