this picture tempts me to plan a vacation to Florida again this Christmas.

however I must get some bills paid off and taking $1,500 to go to Florida seems a bit silly, when I could easily put that amount on a bill.


I miss the warm sun and ocean breezes though.

new attitude

yes every day is a new day to make a change but every day is a new day to have a positive attitude as well.

I wonder if anyone disagrees with this statement?
kind and consideration is an after thought in today’s world.

this makes perfect sense to me as it costs nothing to be kind to others.


sister day

had a good visit today at my sister Carolyn’s

our niece Jackie was there as well and for once Kathy was able to join us too.

poor Kathy was only going on two hours of sleep and she has to work tonight, so I do hope she got some sleep when she went home.

It is always enjoyable to get together with siblings and catch up.

time always flies though and I often wonder where it goes?
but you know the saying, time flies when you are having fun.
It is quite true in this case.

too exceptional not to share

isn’t this beautiful?

wishing and praying and hoping and praying…..

trouble seems to follow us everywhere.

just when I think it has all settled down, a upheaveal makesย  me realize that it will never be completely settled.

so many trails and tribulations.

so many complications.

why can’t life be easy?

pumping blood

inhaling, exhaling

pulse is strong

I’m alive today and am thankful for that feat.

I’m down but I am sure that has more to do with the job than anything else.

I want to be home, cleaning, doing laundry and just enjoying my home.

I feel like I live at this job.
The evenings go by so quickly and here it is another work day.

Fall is coming back with a vengeance this afternoon

I’m ready for it.

While yesterday’s 80 degrees was great, that isn’t fall weather.

The leaves are all gone from the tree in our front yard but the three in the backย  yard are still changing colors.
Brilliant oranges and yellows.

I love fall……….


after next year and my trip through Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado, in the year 2014
I am going to Alaska!
I can’t wait.
I want to go right this minute!
And then hopefully in 2015 we will go to Hawaii.

but Alaska is definitely on the horizon……..



something I would like to do

I would like to take off and go on an adventure by myself.

I would like to just be somewhere completely alone and find the real me.

find what I am made of.

The movie “Cast Away” reminds me of what I would like to do.

to be stranded on a desert island and to have to fend for myself.

I think it would definitely make a person realize what they are made of.

I don’t know if there are places where a person can go off on their own and just exist.

maybe I should check into it.
