I can’t be that old…

Last night as I was waiting to go to sleep, I started to think of my oldest daughter.  Her birthday is tomorrow.  Her birthday gets to me each year.  It gets to me because she is getting older and I know that I cannot be old enough to have a daughter her age. Yes, thisContinue reading “I can’t be that old…”

Once Upon A Time at Christmas… Pt 2…

Christmas Day is usually a day that I love to cook.  I try to make our meal time special, the table settings, real napkins, and Christmas china and of course, food that is much different from my normal food.  I love to plan for it and I always want it to be special. Throughout myContinue reading “Once Upon A Time at Christmas… Pt 2…”

Once Upon A Time at Christmas…

A week ago, my daughter (Little Miss’ mom) and her family arrived for Christmas.  It was the first time in a decade that we were able to spend Christmas together.  I was so thrilled!  Her sister, obviously my other daughter,  was supposed to join us, but, at the last moment, couldn’t.  We were disappointed, but,Continue reading “Once Upon A Time at Christmas…”

Reminders and Echoes…

This past week we celebrated Little Man’s fourth birthday here.  The pool was ready, the weather was wonderful and it was a great celebration. Little Miss arrived before Little Man and the time with these two wonderful, lively human beings went much too fast. Little Miss left just a few hours ago. The house isContinue reading “Reminders and Echoes…”

Anticipation…

I am excited!  In two days, Little Miss will be here.  I cannot wait to see their car pull into the driveway, knowing who is sitting in the backseat waiting to be freed from her car seat.   I will be anxious to scoop her up and know that after a long drive her mama willContinue reading “Anticipation…”

Mid-night Ramblings…

It is after 2 a.m. as I start to write this post.  I had gone to bed a couple of hours ago and lay there, tossing, stretching, trying to get comfortable.  Nothing was working and hubby was up browsing the local Craig’s List, so, I gave up and got up. It’s amazing to me howContinue reading “Mid-night Ramblings…”

Honestly….

Spoiler alert: This is a long post filled with thoughts I have decided to share with the world. The title to this post was going to be different from what it is.  I was going to title it Little Miss Life Lesson.  In truth, this post will be because of Little Miss.  She is openContinue reading “Honestly….”

Bucket List…

Our oldest daughter is staying with us while she is in transition to their new place.  We have had her and Little Miss with us for almost two weeks now.  It has been a wonderful visit. The other day she mentioned my bucket list.  We had been talking about how I turned down seeing BarryContinue reading “Bucket List…”

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…”
