The End of Another Year

I’m sitting here, typing, and listening to Surfing USA by the Beach Boys, in the middle of my country. You just can’t take the beach out of a Jersey Shore Girl. While contemplating the beginning of another year I must reflect on the last year. There. Done. Now on with the new. We had ourContinue reading “The End of Another Year”

Love is the Key

This season of my life has been hard. I lost my best pup the beginning of November and then came to the close of semester as I wrapped up caring for our youngest grand daughter. I was grieving. Big time. I had cared for our granddaughters for the most of the last five years ofContinue reading “Love is the Key”

Another Cup Please…….

I just poured myself another cup of coffee.

We have lived in what we call The Burg for just a hair overContinue reading “Another Cup Please…….”

Fear of rejection is a bit bigger in my mind. FearContinue reading “And The Beat Goes On……….(my personal musical)”

Sit Down For A Cuppa

Welcome New Year – 2016.  Welcome Friends. Come and sit with me and let me pour you a cup of coffee.  I didn’t make a double chocolate chai pie with real whipped cream for you today……perhaps next time. Today, I have lovely slices of homemade bread.  Warm.  With butter and/or some local Amish Blackberry Jam.Continue reading “Sit Down For A Cuppa”
