It's been a while since there was an update, hasn't it? And I have no real excuse. Just lazy and not taking the time to sit and write something up. My bad! So, today I am going to run down what's been happening around here. Thanksgiving: It was a good day. There were only five … Continue reading What’s Going On?
Here in the USA, today is Thanksgiving Day. According to the history we (of a certain age) were taught, it is the day set aside to commemorate the first European settlers here in the New World, and their supposed feast of the bounty of their new home. It was taught as a feast that included … Continue reading Being Thankful
As kids, we used to help Mom bake cookies every Christmas. We baked a few different kinds, but the cut out sugar cookies were always a favorite. Mom would mix up a huge batch of the dough, and it would sit in a big pot out on the cold back porch. We'd scoop out a … Continue reading Baking Cookies
A Week of, Well, Not Much
Really not much to report here. Last week was quiet, and this week is pretty much the same. I did go for my annual mammogram today. Which is why this post is late getting put up. The morning was used up doing normal Monday things, and I had the appointment at lunchtime. Nothing unusual but … Continue reading A Week of, Well, Not Much
2020: Out With the Old, In With the New
It seems odd to think that with this New Year, we are moving into a new decade. Not that this is the first time that has happened to me, of course. I am have seen a few decades come and go along the way to 2020. It feels different this time, somehow. Maybe it's partly … Continue reading 2020: Out With the Old, In With the New
That little break from all the social media stuff was nice, and I enjoyed it. I can't say I didn't miss it, but I think a rest period now and again is a good thing at times. Just dropping back and letting the world go by on its own is a necessary reset. But, as … Continue reading Winter Wednesday

Wednesday- Well, Not Quite Wisdom
Today is a holiday in the USA. It is Independence Day, more familiarly known as the Fourth of July. It is the day we here in the states commemorate our separation from Great Britain and the forming of our own nation. We've come a long way since those days in the 1700s. We've seen a … Continue reading Wednesday- Well, Not Quite Wisdom
Monday Musings: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like….
Well, you know, right? I have the house done, and we got our tree on Saturday. It's a beautiful balsam- nicely shaped and full, but not so full it takes up the entire room. Lights are on it and I will get the ornaments done. Many thanks, as usual, to our friends at Lawndale Farm … Continue reading Monday Musings: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like….
