I loved this movie - watched it with our grandsons a couple years ago. Totally miss having our Holiday sleep-over this year but Crystal is still gr... Read more
Goals for 2017
Thursday, December 29, 2016      10 comments

I have been thinking about my 2017 goals for a few days. They are similar to my 2016 goals of which I have made progress. My weight goal is to lose another 35 pounds which will bring me to my original goal weight. Once there I will reassess t... Read more

Debbie Reynolds was one of my all-time favorite actresses. I loved her spirit, her spark, her wonderful personality. She was beautiful inside and out. I saw her once many years ago. Just now I was looking at Facebook and saw a post that she ... Read more

Today is my birthday - AGAIN! They seem to come around every year even though I'd like to stop the process. My Dad was lucky - he was a twin so he and his sister always shared their birthday, and their age. At 60 they were both only 30 - work... Read more

The day after Christmas

Today is quite the day. We had a serious rain storm yesterday, yes Rain Storm complete with Thunder. It was still raining when I went to bed, and then the wind picked up. So strong that it sounded like a jet engine was just outside our window... Read more
Above 0 and No Snow!
Monday, December 19, 2016      8 comments

Two things for which I am extremely grateful for this morning. This past weekend has been challenging. We received about 8-9" of new snow overnight Friday which Daisy thought was pretty fun at first, but as the day progressed and the sno... Read more

Ten years ago at this time I was in sunny Roanoke holding my very first grandchild and my ONLY granddaughter. It wasn't as cold in Minnesota as it is this year but it was 75 degrees and sunny in Roanoke - a real plus. ... Read more

I'd just like to say how grateful I am today that I do not have to go anywhere. Watching the news tonight, seeing all the people struggling to get from one point to another while the wind blows and the snow swirls so much that you can barely se... Read more
Another day in the life......

We MIGHT have a new hot water heater - I'm not sure. The guys came at 9:30 this morning. They were very nice - one was verrrry tall and the other was verrrry young. Of course, it will cost about $100 more than the estimate because of course, ... Read more

For those of you who have been by my side with this latest knee issue, I'm happy to say that I woke up this morning with the pain nearly gone. I say nearly because I always have pain in that knee to some degree, but I am actually walking normal... Read more
Needing an Attitude Adjustment today!

Some of you already know that I injured my right knee on Friday - somehow, although I have absolutely no idea when or how. I assume it happened while walking Daisy on Friday and perhaps it was so cold out that I just didn't feel the strain. A... Read more
Daisy and the Snow
Sunday, December 11, 2016      6 comments

It's finally come - the snow that will be here until Spring. The temps are in the low teens - single digits and below 0 coming in the extended forecast. It started snowing lightly just before we went to bed but didn't look like much. Ho... Read more
My own space

Thirty-four years ago my ex-husband and I moved into this home with 5 children - 2 that were only 38 days old. It wasn't my choice to move here but we had to move and I was too pregnant with twins to care. We had 3 bedrooms and a large open ro... Read more
