Mothers….

It’s that time of year, pictures of mothers are appearing everywhere on social media.   Odes to mothers, memes of mothers, personal snippets of memories of mothers, ads for things to buy for mothers.   Mothers are everywhere, like always. A day devoted to mothers is a great idea.  Personally, I don’t do much for it.   But,Continue reading “Mothers….”

Self Revelation…

During this time of quarantine when we have all the time we thought we never had, how much are we actually accomplishing? I know I am one who says, if we weren’t so busy I would….  and then fill in the blanks.  Some of those blanks are, I would really get a good start onContinue reading “Self Revelation…”

science IS interesting…

While I was in elementary school I was never a fan of science class.  Especially studying weather in science.   Clouds,  what’s up with studying them?   I never could understand that.  White clouds are in the sky.   If they turn dark, then expect rain or snow.  If the clouds come down to the earth and youContinue reading “science IS interesting…”

Gratitude…

Each Christmas our family has a tradition of giving a gift to Christ in celebration of His birthday.  We do this before exchanging gifts to one another.   Through they years we have watched as our daughters have given things like a ball, and childish things from their little hearts to hearing them say as adultsContinue reading “Gratitude…”

Stages of Quarantine…

We have all seen the memes out there, Day 1 of quarantine, and so on and so forth.   I laugh at them, mainly because they seem to distill into a small picture exactly what I am feeling.   Like most people, when I am told not to do something, it is that exact thing that IContinue reading “Stages of Quarantine…”

Voices everywhere…

Voices are everywhere, but not a decent conversation.  Especially in my head. No, I’m not that crazy over the quarantine, I actually am like this all the time. I wake up, make a mental list of my day, telling myself what I would like to get accomplished and then telling myself what I most likelyContinue reading “Voices everywhere…”

It’s the Little Things..Literally….

Another day in the days of quarantine… This afternoon hubby went out to transplant some blueberry plants.   They have been in large planters on our deck for the past couple of years and this year they were strong enough to be put into the ground.   He went out today to transplant two more bushes. AsContinue reading “It’s the Little Things..Literally….”

To Each Their Own…

This may be a rambling post, so please bear with me… Last night hubby and I watched a documentary,  Antarctica: A Year on Ice.   It had incredible photography and was so interesting.   One of the statements that most caught my attention went something like this, “I have tried to explain to my friends and familyContinue reading “To Each Their Own…”

Texts and Tiredness…

As you all know I got up early yesterday to get to the store for that early shopping for the old folks….   What I didn’t mention is that the night previous I set my alarms (yes, two of them) so that I could get up in time. When I haven’t gotten up early in aContinue reading “Texts and Tiredness…”

0 Dark 30….

The house is still, except for the ticking of the clock and the hum of the refrigerator.  It is darkness, only illuminated by the tiny lights on the electronics in the television stand and my laptop.  Outside is the same, our light shining on our flag, the post lights at the edge of our driveway. Continue reading “0 Dark 30….”
