I love the sun   Leave a comment




the warmth of the sun shining down on me
the feel of the rays kissing my skin and making it aglow

I love the sun.

trip me up, knock me down   Leave a comment

I am a optimist at heart
Everything is 95% upbeat and happy and positive to me.

I hate it when someone just comes along and bursts my bubble.
When someone says ‘NOPE CAN’T Do it like that”

that just grates on my last nerve

If I want to fly, don’t tell me I can’t fly
If I want to leap, don’t warn me I will fall

If I want to soar, let me soar and believe in myself.
Loosen the chains and let me roam free.

Just let me be me…….

the colors of life   Leave a comment

I love the thought of the trees blooming and the grass turning to green.
I love how my flowers are starting to bloom with their pretty yellows, blues and reds.
I love the thought (and smell) of mowed grass and long summer nights.

I love the seasons.
Yes winter is my least favorite although it does have its beauty too.
I love spring the best, because it is the beginning of everything new and fresh.
I love fall because of the cooler temps and the wonderful colors that come with it.
I love summer too but hate the bugs and the real hot and humid weather.

Still the colors are a promise of a beautiful life

And life is good!

today I am the mouse   Leave a comment

no doubt about it, today I am the mouse

Seems like someone is toying with me.
Seems like nothing is going as it should
And my sinus headache is back and I am still on the medicine the doctor prescribed me!

so annoying!
I keep telling myself I am on vacation in a little over forty-eight hours and off for nine days, but it isn’t helping right now………

one of those kind of days   Leave a comment

  its one of those days where I would like to be home, snug in comfort in front of a roaring fire and just enjoy my quiet time.
I haven’t had any really good down time of late and I feel like days just run into each other with no time for rest.
Guess that is what grandchildren do for me.
it is supposed to be sunny and middle 40’s today which will be quite nice, but I still long for the comfort of home and a good book to see me through

right where I need to be   Leave a comment

  I’ve talked about this before, the water calls to me

I should have been born a pieces because I definitely love the water.
Weather it is a majestic waterfall, or a lake, or a sandy beach.
It simply could be a river running through it all………

I crave the water

dolphins   Leave a comment

I hope I get to see dolphins at least once when we venture to Florida.

More than once would be awesome, but if it is only once, I will be thrilled

skip a dee do dah…….   Leave a comment

skip a dee do dah, skip a dee day….my oh my what a wonderful day…….plenty of sunshine heading my way, skip a dee do dah, skip a dee day


as I always do I look at the screen for a moment or so and try to come up with a title for the blog I am about to write.
Sometimes, actually more often than not, I choose a picture in my album and go with that to move me to write something.
However today the above title just sprang into my mind so there you have it.
I’m doubting it will be a wonderful day………for several reasons.
first off, I’m at work and it is snowing outside.
it is sticking to the ground and to the ramps outside my school.

I did believe my shoveling days were behind me until this fall.

secondly I got into my car last night and as I started the twenty-mile drive home, I felt like someone or something was stabbing me in the back.

my lower back on the left side.
the longer I drove home the worse the pain got.
So I was in pain all night and while it isn’t as strong today I can still feel it a bit.
(I KNOW there is always something wrong with me!)

and third (on my reasons why this won’t be a wonderful day)  I had my two grand daughters last night, Keira and Kayla.
Keira is 4 and Kayla is 2

Keira was happy and bubbly and content until she said to me she wanted to go to a store and buy a new toy
I told her no we weren’t going to do that.
She got mad at me and threw a fit royally.
She screamed, she kicked she told me she hated me and just basically had a meltdown.
I swatted her once on the butt and told her to lay there on the couch and she couldn’t get up until she was a nice little girl again.
She screamed for four or five more minutes and then calmed down.
After that she was better, but still hateful when she talked.

Now Kayla is picking up on Keira’s behavior.
I brushed her hair out of her face as she sat on my lap and Kayla says to me “Don’t touch me! Leave me alone!”
And a bit later she said “I don’t like you”

How does one deal with such behavior?
Keira seems so young to be having this kind of attitude right now.
And Kayla picking up on Keira’s behavior just makes me nuts.
Kayla even got in trouble when her mom came home from work and Keira laughed because Kayla got in trouble.
I told her it wasn’t funny and she stuck her tongue out at me.

Sigh………I have no idea how to reach Keira right now.
If things don’t go her way, she is a monster.

Yes her father went through this as well.
And maybe they all did and I just don’t remember…..
But damn….it is tough to be around them when they behave like this……..

on an up note, the sinus medicine I got from the doctor seems to be working AND  only 5 more days till we fly the friendly skys south!

stuff   Leave a comment

I’m tired today.
Not sure exactly why except that I woke up an hour earlier than I normally do.
It is Monday morning again, my very least favorite day of the week.
I am at work and should get up and get moving, but have no desire or ambition to do so.

I wouldn’t say I am in a bad mood but I am in a mood none the less.
It feels like it will be a long drawn out week.

I also woke up feeling like something was wrong.
Not sure what or with whom, only that something is wrong.
and I hate that.

they are talking snow showers off and on for the next thirty-six to forty-eight hours.
and then it is supposed to warm up to the low sixties by the weekend.
Which will be nice.

according to the weather channel it is between 75 and 82 in Daytona Beach, where we will be next week at this time.

a chance of rain a few days while we are there, but not like I can change that.
