WHY?

Yes, we can all agree that 2020 sucked.  Then again, maybe not.  It made us value our friends and family more.  Not being able to be near the ones we love is horrifying, but it happened.  So, we did learn some precious lessons in 2020.  But then what?  Where did those amazing lessons go wrong?  … Continue reading WHY?

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!

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.
