I love sparkles. That's about as girly as I get. I took a Mental Health day today and spent a few hours with DD and GS2 for some shopping, play time and lunch. I left their house and thought hey, it's Me Time, do something different. Pedicur... Read more

It wasn't so much super as pretty. I've seen the Harvest Moon where it appears to take over the sky as it rises. However, at the end of the evening, I was satisfied. Lighthouse in Raritan Bay ... Read more

Some of us are of a "certain age" and can remember when girls didn't wear pants to school, playing sports was uncool and boys ruled the playground. In the late '60's and early '70's I tried my darndest to be pretty, cried when boys called me fa... Read more

The rain stopped and it got gloomy. I'd rather move around than sit in gloom. So, hey, let's drive to Lancaster and ride on trains! Look at, sit in, play with trains. Start with the little ones ... Read more

Listening to rain on the roof, trickles in the gutter, splash on the leaves. I think today is either going to be a day of sitting on my porch, occasionally cooking food for storage OR I may take a walk on the canal. I haven't gotten rainy summ... Read more
