Could I Have a Do-Over?

Well, this New Year started off a wee bit off-kilter for me. I came down with a cough and a little congestion right before the clock struck twelve. Great timing. Since I filled myself with immune builders it could have been a lot worse. Instead, it dragged slowly on and I shared it with myContinue reading “Could I Have a Do-Over?”

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”

Out With The Old…….

  Here we are already five days into the New Year. I decided to take down the Christmas tree and all the decorations that go with that wonderful time of the year. Sigh. I hesitated.

Goodbye 2016

I want flowers and birds, as opposed to dead rainforests and killing the beesContinue reading “Goodbye 2016”

Ever an adventurer…… My future at this point is rather swelling with fear  anticipation. Last Thursday was the last day of my son’sContinue reading “Dusty Dreams”

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”

Blogging Bliss

It is the day before Christmas, here, in The Middle.  The beauty of difference is that we can all celebrate, or not celebrate, our holidays as we please. Our family celebrates Christmas.  The true meaning of celebrating the birth of Christ is a big deal to us.  Also, I was raised in Christmas.  Christ mayContinue reading “Blogging Bliss”
