Wedding Cake Topper…

Growing up, my Mother’s bottom drawer of her dresser held a treasure trove of mementos for my sisters and I to explore.   Inside that drawer were photos, her wedding shoes (satin shoes), and her wedding cake topper.   She had these sugar bells that had once graced her wedding cake.   I loved those.  So, when IContinue reading “Wedding Cake Topper…”

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…”

Out for a Drive…

Thought I would share my thoughts from today  with you all.  Earlier today hubby and I took a drive.  We left the house shortly after noon, and went out of the garage to get into the car.  We were greeted by a swarm of mosquitoes so very happy to be able to annoy people again,Continue reading “Out for a Drive…”

My Veteran…

Tomorrow, November 11th is Veterans Day.  In all the years that I have had my blog, I have never written a post to honor my Veteran on this day.   I have shared about him and some of our adventures, but never on this day that honors Veterans. This is hubby and I.  Yes, it isContinue reading “My Veteran…”

Juggling…

I have a faint memory from childhood of having juggling balls.  I remember looking at the direction book and practicing with them.  I think I was able to get up to three balls.  I was excited at what I could do, but when I tried the fourth ball, I became discouraged and quit. Isn’t thatContinue reading “Juggling…”

Little Girls…

Little girls come into your life and they nuzzle up and reach in and steal your heart.  They do this easily and quickly. I always wanted to have five boys.  That was my dream when I was young.  I wanted enough boys to have a pick up basketball team.  I always thought I would haveContinue reading “Little Girls…”

Confessions and Memories…

I discovered today that there is actually a National Day of the Deployed.  Never heard of such a thing, and yet, when I looked, there is actually a day for those who are currently deployed, or have been deployed as a day to honor their sacrifice and commitment.  So, to make it official, I thankedContinue reading “Confessions and Memories…”

It became second nature…

We have spent increased time at the Veteran’s Hospital this past month.   Appointments and classes and tests have given us the chance to drive up to the mountains and spend some of our days at this facility. Yesterday, we were there for an appointment for my hubby.  Some friends of ours went along with us,Continue reading “It became second nature…”

Pride Cometh Before a…..

I am often lecturing my sweet hubby about his balance.  His balance isn’t the best because of past injuries.  Having had one foot broken off on his left leg and a severed quadriceps tendon on his right leg, I repeatably tell him he hasn’t a foot to stand on.   He often takes a tumble andContinue reading “Pride Cometh Before a…..”
