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 and SIMPLE STRIKES AGAIN!

This shorty is to share some helpful stellar information.  Nobody wants to go to hospitals or clinics, so what do you do?  I found some great stuff to help with this right in my email inbox this weekend: Why You Need to Use Telehealth During the COVID-19 Pandemic April 03, 2020    Written by Anna Marden … Continue reading SHORT and SIMPLE STRIKES AGAIN!

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!

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?
