Unfortunately~

Well unfortunately I had to work all weekend when the weather was decent and I could get outside and do yard work. Today is isn’t even fifty and a cool breeze is blowing and I can’t be out there, or let me say I choose not to be out there working in the shade to…

Christmas~

I am sitting here listening to Christmas music and printing off recipes to make sugar cookies this year. I have never attempted to make sugar cookies before, but I am going to attempt it this year. Something new, you know? I toy with going back to school, to do something different, but at 57 I…

I Need A Challenge~

I feel like I am in a rut. Like every day is the same as the day before and will be the same tomorrow. I need something new. I need to be challenged in some way. I don’t know how to explain it. I just feel like there is nothing to look forward to and…

Phone Number~

I got my cell phone number changed today. Why you  may wonder? Because I was getting a lot of calls from people I didn’t even know and they were trying to sell me crap or get me to change insurance or whatever and I just got really tired of answering the calls so I wouldn’t…

Whose Hand?

So yesterday after having a down day I was finishing up my night by reading random posts that other people have written. People that I don’t know and will never meet. As I was reading I came upon a blog that was talking about what would happen if you knew the end of the world…

Country Life~

I was born a country girl. I was raised in the country. I love the country and life away from cities. Maybe some day I can live in the country again……… I lived near the Iowa River too so that may be why I love the water so much. 🙂  

Every Now And Then~

Do you ever wonder what may or may not have happened IF you chose a different path? For instance, in 1993 after fourteen years of marriage my husband and I divorced. Three years later we remarried. I sometimes wonder where would I be or if I would even be alive, if I hadn’t remarried him?…

Color Me………

Color me pretty….. Color me blue……. Color me happy……. Color me missing you…… Color me crying…… Color me smiling…… Color me grateful for the time……(in) Color me blessed….. Color me sappy…… Color me pretending to be happy…… I’d like to say I am over it. I’d like to say it never enters my mind…… I’d…

I’ve Been Thinking~

So I was thinking today how much I miss the ocean, the sun and warmer temperatures. No I don’t want it hotter than 80 and no I don’t want any kind of humidity, but I was thinking that once my Ava Marie has grown up, I can see myself spending winters in Florida. I don’t…
