sentiment and viewpoint

I have been going back and forth on what subject to write about on my blog. So, I just haven't written. Like many of you, I am sure,  are a bit disorientated.  Our generation hasn't ever gone through anything like the COVID19 pandemic before.  I was going ninety miles...

last of the winter days

I love winter, I love the coziness of watching a movie by the fire while curled up in a warm blanket and a cup of hot tea within reach. I love the time it allows us to rest, not worrying about the garden or yard work. To be able to thumb through magazines for ideas...

2020

How in the world did it get to be 2020 already?  I remember as a kid, thinking 2020 was a million years away.  That we would all be riding in Jetson cars, have robots and drive through showers. I try to keep up with technology the best I can.  We do have a robot...

Changing seasons

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, Summer is an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of all of them." Stanley Horowitz I love fall. I am that obnoxious person who puts up fall decorations on September 1st. I have always loved fall since I was a child. Raking...

Untie

Untie

I read a quote not long ago "Don't cut what you can untie".  At the time, it just meant to not cut the pretty ribbon, to untie it and save it. I have a drawer full of ribbons, twine, cords and wire that I have untwisted and saved. I use most of them. Some I am saving...
