Baby Watch 2012 ~ Day 14 ~ Day 16 ~~~ First Ladies, Pedicures and Laundry

I could get used to not having to do much.  Living in a hotel does have its perks.  I like being able to go to the lobby and get coffee any time of the day or night.  It’s always decaf and they have those wonderful little flavored creamers.  What’s not to like? Well, the otherContinue reading “Baby Watch 2012 ~ Day 14 ~ Day 16 ~~~ First Ladies, Pedicures and Laundry”

Baby Watch 2012–Day 3~Day 9–From Wedding Bells to Lightening Bugs to Sister Talks

Wow!  It seems like forever since I had a moment to sit and write.  I have thought about blogs all this week and am looking forward to blogging about them. I still haven’t downloaded any pictures (that’s next on my to do list), but when I do, I will post them. My nephew’s wedding wasContinue reading “Baby Watch 2012–Day 3~Day 9–From Wedding Bells to Lightening Bugs to Sister Talks”

Baby Watch 2012 –Day 2 –From mountains to family

Yesterday saw us heading to the hills, literally!  It was so wonderful to see mountains once more.  My heart felt at home and there was excitement for me at each turn of the road.  It was wonderful.  We stayed at a hotel built in the 1800’s.  Our room was shaped differently and overlooked a beautiful church withContinue reading “Baby Watch 2012 –Day 2 –From mountains to family”

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?”

Frozen in time: memories, root beer floats and brownies

A part of this title is a nod to a wonderful blogger at Life With The Top Down ( and her post yesterday about a frozen ham.  Great post, but I digress. The post mentioned above talked about changes in life.  We all have them, we experience them daily for the most part.  Frequently,  weContinue reading “Frozen in time: memories, root beer floats and brownies”

Ramblings on Fathers…

Sunday is Father’s Day.  This year is a special one for our family, as we have a new father in our midst.  Granted, the baby is still a couple of weeks away in actually being here, but, nonetheless, we know he is a new Daddy. This makes my heart full.  I find it unique toContinue reading “Ramblings on Fathers…”

Takes a lickin and keeps on clicking….

As I write this, I think of my camera.  I love my camera.  It was a gift from my dear husband one year.  An early Valentine’s gift, I think.  He just came home with it and when I opened it, I was thrilled.  Thrilled not just for the camera itself, but because of its color. Continue reading “Takes a lickin and keeps on clicking….”

Gonna put my dancin shoes on…

Lately I have noticed in the blogs I follow that the writers are focusing their posts in a specific direction.  I understand this.  I think we all have an idea of what we would like to say and write when we approach the blog kingdom.  Once we arrive in this land (at least this isContinue reading “Gonna put my dancin shoes on…”

Once Upon A Time…

All great stories begin with this line, “Once upon a time…”  and end with a happily ever after.  As a woman, I love these type of stories.  They make me smile and sigh.  There is usually a handsome prince and a beautiful princess involved and things are all wrapped up in a neat little package. Continue reading “Once Upon A Time…”
