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.
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.
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.
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

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!
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!
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!!
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…
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.
