Merry Christmas

I do hope you had a great Christmas. We had a wonderful couple of days. It was very low key. We did have our neighbor over. He’s retired and alone and really doesn’t go anywhere. He’s been spending Thanksgiving and Christmas with us for the last few years now. Last night we watched A Christmas …

Down the Rabbit Hole

Ugh.I was looking through photos just a bit ago. I came across the pics from when we moved from Florida to Rowlesburg. We moved into my Nanny and Pops old house. Oh, I was so elated to be back. I LOVED Rowlesburg SO MUCH. We settled into a routine rather easily. I am SO grateful …

Swirly whirlybird

That’s my brain right now. Always in motion. Too bad my body isn’t. 😒In my heart, in my head, I have all the motivation in the world. My body gives me the finger, though.I’m sitting here at 2 a.m. knowing full well that I needed to go to bed hours ago. Yet, here I am. …

Time.

Oh, I have so much on my mind. Mainly? Time… Time is wonderful, and yet the lack of it sucks. Example: My kid is some how almost 12. Twelve. So, I sit here and think of how little time we have left with her under our wings. And I CANNOT. Ugh. But, that is our …

Things and stuff

It’s been a low-key day. Mom made delicious corn beef and smoked Gouda sammiches on rye bread for lunch. I cleaned the kitchen, and did some laundry. Finally got Maya’s school pics sorted out and wrote a quick note to those getting a picture. T has been asleep all day. 😕 I am about to …

I hate June

My birthday is June 5. My mom’s dad’s birthday was June 11. He died on June 15. My other grandfather died on my 24th birthday. My mother-in-laws birthday is June 24. My brother-in-law Mark died on June 20th, and my dad died on June 23rd, while we were attending Mark’s funeral. It was the absolute …

A good day

I spent the afternoon out and about with my mom. It was nice. We hit up a local farm for some fresh steaks/burgers/sausage. I’m so thankful to have places around here to get farm-to-table goods. I’d much rather we support our locals than Walmart. We had sandwiches from there for lunch, too. They were delish. …

The Longest Day

The Summer Solstice! I wait all year for this day! I had hoped today would be sunny and hot. Like summer should be. But, nope. 😔 I’m sitting here listening to the birds. They sure have a lot to say. When a car comes by, they hush for a second or two, and then resume. …

Mark

Thirteen years ago, on my birthday, you called to wish me a Happy Birthday, and you promised me a steak dinner when you made the move to Tampa in a few weeks. We were so excited for the move! We looked forward to doing so much with you! Camping and canoeing and lazy days in …

Betty Crocker

It’s been rainy today. Things with T are rocky yet again. I’ve been pretty down, but trying to stay positive. For dinner tonight, I really needed something different. This hit the nail on the head! I get emails from Betty Crocker containing recipes a few times a week. This one was a winner! I took …
