Fifty-three

I made a road trip. It has been a long time since I took a road trip. This was a three hour, overnight road trip to see my daughter’s new house. She bought a fixer-upper and is happily doing the fixing-up on her own, with a lot of help from YouTube and Google. It is…

My entire life, I have loved storms. Sometimes they get a bit scary, and sitting in the bathroom because of a tornado warning isn’t the best, but other than those rare times, I love to listen to the rain and listen to the thunder and watch the lightning. The wind often picks up, and I…

Fifty-one

I used to consider the weekend to be better than the other 5 days of the week. Maybe because there was less to do; maybe because it used to contain my favorite activity – going to church. That is no longer my favorite activity, so Sunday is no longer my favorite day of the week….

There’s a heat wave going on around here. It is a reminder of why I dislike summer so much. It is closer to an intense hatred than a dislike, to be honest! Sweating is not my thing. Watching others sweat? Equally bad. I should be counting down the days to fall, right? I do know…

Forty-nine

I keep coming here and staring at this page called Forty-nine. Sometimes I write a bit and then delete it all, because I am stuck in a who-needs-to-hear-from-me phase. I mean, really?? No one needs to hear from me. I started this blog though, because I needed to here from me. It didn’t matter who…

I am trying to make some wise decisions about leaving social media sites. Today, I deleted Twitter, which I never use, but I created it so that I could view Twitter posts when they are in the news. But that doesn’t happen enough to have an account for? I honestly am on the verge of…

Forty-Seven

It is 82 degrees outside and my elderly neighbor, Bill, is sitting outside in his lawn chair, shirtless, with his firepit blazing?? He is on the phone with someone. His radio is loud with 80’s music. He is shouting over the radio into his phone. And I am sitting in my room just giggling every…

Easter is coming. The celebration this year seems very downplayed as COVID restrictions are still in place. Many are vaccinated but many are not. So we must still be careful. In all honesty, Resurrection Sunday is best celebrated in your heart anyway. It is of greater impact if it involves a one-on-one encounter with the…

Forty-Five

It is a sunny afternoon here in a land that the sun misses more that not. I an mot sure why this happens, but overcast is the normal way of things. So to see the sun shine brightly all day is a smile-inducing phenomenon!! The temp is hovering near warm, but not quite warm enough…

Forty-four

It has been only days since the time changes and we pushed our clocks forward an hour between Saturday and Sunday. I feel like I have been run over by a truck. I cannot fall asleep at night, mainly because I am not able to set the alarm for the regular time and get up…
