Searching for Happily Ever After…

Hubby and I are on a quest of sorts…  We are in the process of finding our forever after home.  Being a military couple, we have had our share of moving.  Granted, we were at one place for almost 28 years, but, we did have one move during that time. This is hopefully the lastContinue reading “Searching for Happily Ever After…”

The Progression of Decorating a Front Porch…

Hubby and I are late getting Christmas decorating done.  I had started a bit last week.  I put our dog’s bow tie (red) on his collar.  He is now ready for Christmas.  He looks dapper. I went outside and decorated our mailbox.  It looks pretty good.  Except for the fire ant mound at the baseContinue reading “The Progression of Decorating a Front Porch…”

A Big Loop…

Towards the end of October Hubby and I went on an adventure.  We set off with our little dog, a tent, an air mattress, and some supplies.  We went north a bit and then straight across Interstate 40.  Each night we stopped, set up our tent (not without a lot of grumbling from yours truly),Continue reading “A Big Loop…”

July 3rd…

We are still in our hometown.  Writing has somehow been harder to do here.  The ideas do not flow as easily as they do when I am in my home and surroundings. Today is the third of July.  It has been  40 years since I was in town for a fourth of July.  I thoughtContinue reading “July 3rd…”

Marietta..

Last night I had a dream about my mother in law.  No, it was not a nightmare, as I had a wonderful mother in law. I haven’t dreamed about her in years, so last night’s visit was special.  Mom passed away 23 years ago.  I have missed her daily. Most people have a period ofContinue reading “Marietta..”

Sitting with a Friend on a Winter’s night…

My Shugo is going to be 12 in March.  In people years, that’s 84.   He’s getting up there in age and he is beginning to show signs of aging.  He’s not the happy puppy all the time.  His little bones creak and his movements are a bit slower. Earlier this evening he looked at hubbyContinue reading “Sitting with a Friend on a Winter’s night…”

Out with the Old…

We live in a small neighborhood, there are two roads in this subdivision and there are 37 houses here.  So, when I walk the dog we walk the entire neighborhood. This morning as I walked onto the porch I could hear the wind.  I love days like this.  The neighborhood has tall pine trees, oakContinue reading “Out with the Old…”

Lessons Learned…

Today is the 26th of December, Boxing Day as it is celebrated by our neighbors to the north.   It is a day we celebrated with our dear friends in San Diego who lived in Canada for several years. I wake up on the 26th yearning for the buffet that they always had and the eggnogContinue reading “Lessons Learned…”

Fake Presents…

Oh, by this title I could go in almost any direction, couldn’t I?  I could talk about all kinds of presents and the meaning behind them, but that just sounds boring and honestly, I don’t have the thoughts to carry on with that train of thought. But, there is a purpose for the name ofContinue reading “Fake Presents…”

On an Adventure…

It seems so strange to not have to write a post today and yet, all day I kept feeling like I was missing something.   This morning we took our little puppy to spend the weekend with two of his friends, Hank and Clark.  He will play and run with them while hubby and IContinue reading “On an Adventure…”
