I am finally settled back at home after being in Austin, Texas for over two weeks. The joy of being “MIMI” with my sweet adorable “just turned one” grandson Lev, were wonderful moments and the time spent with my daughter and SIL was great fun. W... Read more

Although it is quite sweltering here in California at this moment and the skies are hazy from our fires, I thought I would fill you in on what I will be doing within a year time. I have made a difficult but not so difficult (if that makes any se... Read more

I don’t know about you lately, I have been feeling “betwixt and between….” I am trying to draw in inspiration in my life but find it so difficult these days to get inspired. You know the feeling, wanting to get up and do something different but... Read more

August is the month when it seems everything is melting in the heat of the sun. It is the last gasp of summer, when we savor every minute before we go back to whatever we were doing in those chilly winter months with their shortened days and r’s... Read more

I haven’t blogged much; there’s so much you can say when we are all huddled together hoping to avoid the virus and just try to go on a merry way. But it is hard to do these days; try to acclimate the new normal does have it’s challenges. Fo... Read more

Well it certainly has been a huge shift in our normalcy lately. Actually the past 6 months I am guessing. It is a new normal for all of us, scary at times, uplifting sometimes, and just doing what we need to do one step at a time. I believe I ha... Read more

Have you ever heard of an older dog having vertigo? Well my poor Bernie suffered from it last week and it was one of the worse things I have ever witnessed. My poor boy didn’t know what was up or down, right or left. He was unable to get up on a... Read more

I had an MRI this morning, nothing big. So I had a chance to do some thinking while I was in the machine. It’s funny what pops up in your head when you are lying there not being able to move for 30 minutes. So here is my main thought…my bir... Read more

I mostly go out (before the covid 19) on a daily basis practicing kindness and patience. Cleaning up my messes when I create them. Trying to do things that further my relationship with I guess you would say, humanity. To practice humility which ... Read more

I believe one of the hardest lesson we need to learn in life no matter what age you are is knowing when to let go of the “steering wheel” and to allow whatever is suppose to happen, happen in its own time. At my age I think I have got this lesso... Read more

Well I had a first today. I am going for a medical procedure next week and it is now protocol to take a covid 19 test beforehand. So this morning I went through a drive thru and got tested. It’s really no big deal, quick and easy. We Califo... Read more

It’s weird weather today…a little overcast but humid and us Californians don’t usually experience humidity that often. And yes, we are very spoiled here. But today it is more like what we call here, “earthquake” weather. Reason being, earthquake... Read more

If it wasn’t for that beautifully wrapped oatmeal raisin cookie hidden way in the corner of my freezer, I would have been 2 weeks solid without cheating. But I couldn’t resist last night watching my taped programs; I couldn’t keep that simple lo... Read more

There is no doubt about it, when you are stuck at home you end up gaining weight. It is similar to the “freshman 15” when you begin college as a freshman, you end up gaining at least 15 lbs. You know how it is; you are living away from home for ... Read more

Oddly enough, I thought by now I would grow tiresome of this whole ordeal of staying home and only going out for necessary errands. I have gotten use to this easy-low key life where there is less traffic, less people, less everything. I realize ... Read more
