Christmas   Leave a comment

I know, talking about Christmas in June is rather silly but my sister wrote a blog about it so it got me thinking……
Last year I started my Christmas shopping in July

I think I will do the same this year as it is easier to buy a present here and there then to buy  them all in December.

that means I literally have twelve paychecks before Christmas.

and with my husband retiring……and the penny-pinching will have begun, it just makes more sense to start now rather than later.

now I just need to figure out what to get everyone


My eldest child will be the hardest…..

the rest it is pretty much a done deal.
I already know what to get each and every one of them.

rain rain please come and visit us   Leave a comment

   I saw a bit of lightning this morning on my way into work and maybe a minute of a good soft rain.

however it was very brief and we so badly need the rain.

I wish it would rain for the next four days, a soft gentle rain that the ground could absorb and then it would be good enough that the sun could shine again next Monday

of course ideally if it rained every night while we slept, a soft gentle rain, and was sunny during the day,  that would be awesome as well.

4 weeks from today   Leave a comment

Four weeks from today we will be Florida bound for the last time in a long time.
We have gone to Florida so much that I think it is time to forget that state and move on to the many others we haven’t seen.

my husband loves Florida, or should I say he loves the Florida coastline

I keep telling him there are other beaches and other coastlines but he loves Florida.
Probably because it is familiar and he knows it fairly well

I however would love to travel up the eastern coastline and do the same to the western coastline as well, he however doesn’t see that as anything too exciting to do.

but I think the 8 times we have been to Florida (this trip in 4 weeks will be the 8th time)

is enough

and I don’t plan on returning to it for years to come.

My next big trip with be to the Grand Canyon in Arizona next May.
With or without my husband.
I have wanted to go for a few years now but he doesn’t have any interest in going.
So this May I will either go with him or see if one of my sister’s wants to join me.

no Arizona isn’t going anywhere but it is time to broaden our horizons and find new adventures instead of going back to the same place over and over again.

Dry   Leave a comment

I can’t write.
I have tried and tried and it has been months since I was able to do anything productive with my writing.

I hate it.
I so love to write and feel exceptionally great when it is like the words just flow from my finger tips.

but alas….it is fleeting.

I can’t find the will to write even when I so badly want to.
