Baby Watch 2012 – Day 1

It is hot here and after walking our dear puppy and explaining to him what is going to happen the next few weeks (of course, he understood each word) all I feel like doing is sitting on my comfy couch in the air conditioning.  It is too hot to help pack up the car! OfContinue reading “Baby Watch 2012 – Day 1”

19 days to go, but who’s counting?

T-minus 8 days until my dear anonymous hubby and I will begin our trek towards the “baby-watch”.  My mind is a flurry of lists, what to do, what to clean, what to take, you get the idea.  I find I am not thinking straight (well, isn’t that normal?) .  I look at things in my house andContinue reading “19 days to go, but who’s counting?”

The Good, The Bad and The Ouch?

(Disclaimer: this is not a serious post.  Also, this is not a long post)   Big puffy clouds hanging across the deep blue sky.  Some dark and foreboding (rain possibly?  Danger?) The time: high noon (well give or take a few minutes) Our shadows drift eerily across the road in front of us.  Puppy isContinue reading “The Good, The Bad and The Ouch?”

A Lovely Evening for a Walk

My daily routine is to walk our dear puppy a couple of times a day.  This walk is down to our pool/playground area twice and then in the evening, a walk around the block. The past couple of nights it has been so pleasant, I have done a third walk down to the pool area.  Continue reading “A Lovely Evening for a Walk”

The Bane Of My Existence

There are few things that really get to me.  Most times I am easy-going and can handle most things thrown at me.  At least, that is how I perceive myself, I may be way off in left field, but, don’t tell me otherwise.  I like living in the land of delusion.  The voices in my head andContinue reading “The Bane Of My Existence”

Under the quiet

A few days ago I posted a picture of the pond in my back yard.  The caption for the picture was from Psalm 23.  I would like to share a bit of background for the scripture, if you don’t mind. A few years ago when we were in the process of moving after being inContinue reading “Under the quiet”

Pardon Me, I think you are standing on my soapbox

Many times in my life I still view things like the skinny 17 year in my mind.  I think I am flexible and generous in my thinking and accepting attitudes in others.  I smile often when reading my Facebook page, seeing what posts my younger ‘friends’ write.  I feel good about myself during those times. Lately, though,Continue reading “Pardon Me, I think you are standing on my soapbox”

Question of the week…

I have chronic insomnia.  I have had it all my life, in fact, it is a way of life for me.  I don’t know how people can say, “I’m tired, I’m going to bed.” and then they actually fall asleep!  Amazing. While I lay awake, questions pop into my mind.  Those questions usually drive meContinue reading “Question of the week…”

clanka, clanka, clanka…

Had dinner this evening, cleared the table, took dear anonymous dog for his evening walk.  Came back into house and loaded the dishwasher.  Put in soap packet, and pressed the buttons to start the dishwasher. Sit down to recheck email for the umpteenth time today.  Water spraying in dishwasher, clanka, clanka.  Get up, open dishwasher, moveContinue reading “clanka, clanka, clanka…”

Guardian of Our Home

Here is our dear anonymous dog.  We think his name means Guardian of the home, which is why we picked his name.  He is our constant companion and security.  That is,  until there is a thunderstorm in the area, then we are his protectors as he cowers behind our legs. I wasn’t going to showContinue reading “Guardian of Our Home”
