Oh let 2017 be a better year for all! Several people have mentioned to me that they are happy to have 2016 come to a close. I welcome the prospect of a new year, and hopefully a much better one. For those of you who know me well, 2016 was a bit mind boggling to… Continue reading Hello New Year!
Life has been different as of late. Dad has been gone from us now for 9 months, and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of him. He wish was to be buried in the National Memorial Cemetery with full military honors. On June 30th, 2015 we said goodbye and honored… Continue reading The Hummingbird
As I sit here, trying to compose this post, I realize I don’t know where to begin. How do you do this? My first instinct is to call my Dad and ask him for advice as to what he thinks would sound good. See, that is what I always did. Whenever I couldn’t think of… Continue reading My Dad

Happily, I can recycle the majority and reclaim the ever so needed space in my file cabinet. During this long tedious process, I came across… Continue reading Grandparents

So, on average, my daily activities are nothing to get excited about. I do laundry, run errands, think about working out, grocery shop, and pretend I am actually making progress in the never ending task of organizing my house. It’s just an ordinary life. But then….. The last stop on my list of errands yesterday… Continue reading It’s A Small World
So something you may not know about me, is that I really enjoy British television. My all time favorite show, of course, is Downton Abbey; and if you have never watched this series, well you are missing out. I so enjoy the storyline, the characters, and the lack of sex! Oh, there are times it… Continue reading When it Storms
