Snow…

Yesterday we woke up to this.  Beautiful, isn’t it?  I love snow.  I smile when I see snow.  I turn into that child that wants to run outside all bundled up and play.  We had heard we may get snow, but, we have heard that a couple of times this winter.  Each time has beenContinue reading “Snow…”

Markers…

This week is Thanksgiving.  A time when we remember.  A time to point out things in our lives that we are grateful for.  A time to give thanks. Many of the things we give thanks for are situations with family, friends, people.  Activities we may have had or shared experiences that have touched us somehow. Continue reading “Markers…”

Baseball Adventure…

I was born and raised in Northwestern Pennsylvania.  Since this is a fact, I also was raised to believe that I am a fan of three teams ~ Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Penguins,  and Pittsburgh Pirates.   I am perfectly fine with this.  All three teams are excellent teams and deserve my fandom (is that a correctContinue reading “Baseball Adventure…”

Lunch with a Friend…

As I mentioned in my previous post, a little over 42 years ago I left home.  Home, as in my hometown.  The past few weeks  we have been staying with close friends who are, in reality, family to us. A couple of weeks ago, I had an opportunity to spend the day with my foreverContinue reading “Lunch with a Friend…”

One Liners…

Last night while on Facebook, there was a post that caught my eye.  I actually ended up sharing it.   The meme asked to name a movie quote that gives away the title without actually mentioning it. It was fun to read the comments and I realized reading these one liners made me smile.  Made meContinue reading “One Liners…”

Life Goes On…

This week saw news of celebrity deaths almost daily.  From my childhood the actor who played Grizzly Adams passed away.  Thought of Saturday evenings in my pajamas, freshly bathed and ready for church flashed through my mind. David Bowie, my teen years, admiring his artistry, but, not really a fan.  But, his passing was sad. Continue reading “Life Goes On…”

Reality check….

The first week of July was a hard time for me.  Yes, we had just moved and getting settled was (and is) taking longer than I expected, but, there were other things happening that got to me. The first Sunday of the month, we went to church, and came home, and as is normal, IContinue reading “Reality check….”

At Long Last… Home…

Home is where the heart can laugh without shyness. Home is where the heart’s tears can dry at their own pace. ~Vernon Baker We lived in Downeast Maine during the last year of the 70’s and the beginning of the 80’s.  We had been married five years. There was another young mother who had aContinue reading “At Long Last… Home…”

Some Days Just Hit You…

Today I had an interesting day.  It started out pretty normal, making fresh juice and coffee. Hubby has been working on his car, his baby, for the past couple of weeks.  From what he is talking about, I expect it will act like a brand new car and drive incredibly well and be fast.  OfContinue reading “Some Days Just Hit You…”

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

This is always a fun day.  I have never gone out and celebrated the day with a bar crawl or anything, but it is still a great day. I was born into an Irish family.  Our family really hasn’t been in America that long.  I love that fact.  We were raised to be proud ofContinue reading “Happy St Patrick’s Day!”
