EYES FORWARD

Hey friends, how are you today? It is a beautiful day in our neighborhood. Jazz has, of course, taken up most of the space on the kitchen window ledge.  As the morning sun rises, the birds seek shelter among the trees. I love the sounds of the red cardinals; they sing so beautifully; I wonder what…

ARE YOU MY ENEMY?

Hey friends, How are you doing? We’ve enjoyed beautiful weather, here, in our neck of the woods.  In previous years, we would have perhaps complained that it’s a bit hot (our temperatures have been in the 80°(s) and 90°(s).   This year though, there has been a significant lack of complaint, more just gratefulness for warm weather,…

THESE FEELINGS WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME!

Hey friends, how are you doing? How was weekend? There was a time, when I looked forward to my weekend; I suppose I still do, to some extent. Lately, my weekends have been a bit busier than I appreciate, perhaps it’s due to the two college girls who live with us.  There are lots of ‘discussions’…

CHOOSE TO LOVE

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? This week was a good week, we celebrated my husband’s birthday on Wednesday, the warmest day of the week, a glorious 91°, which was great because my birthday, less than a month ago was 46°, with snow the day before.  But then it could be worse,…

2020… WHO KNEW?

Hey friends, how are you today? It is another beautiful day in my neck of the woods.  Today’s high temperature is a marvelous 87° under a brilliant, bright, blazing, beautiful sun.  I love days like these and thankfully, praise the Lord, lately, we’ve had quite a few days like these.  Days that remind me to ‘look up”; days…

SHALL WE BEGIN AGAIN?

Hello, my friends, how are you doing today? Spring came with a vengeance and now summer nips at her toes, while she whispers, “move over, I’m here”.   Our temperatures have been in the 80°s all week long with brilliant, bright, beautiful, blazing sunshine and this morning, we woke up to a wonderful 63°, amidst open windows.  …

THE REAL ME

Hey friends, how are you today? It is a beautiful, bright, sunny day in my neighborhood. I love sunny days; it makes my heart glad. On days like these, I feel invincible, except of course, too soon, I’m reminded that, that’s all it is; just a feeling.  The temperature still feels a bit wintery though; a…

SAVE THE MOTHERS

Hello friends, how are you today? Today I found myself singing this song, sung by ‘Mr. Rogers’ on the television show by the same name, “it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, could you be mine?” Some days, songs wander into my head without any warning.  It is a beautiful day though; the sun is out,…

TAKE BACK THOSE LEMONS!

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your weekend? How have you adjusted during this quarantine? Or have you made any changes, at all? The sun is out today, but it’s a mere 36° in the ‘shade’ (maybe a bit cooler there [in the shade, that is]).  But the clouds are minimal today, the skies…

I’M BETTER FOR IT

Hey friends, how are you today? How was your week? How have you been? I say, lately, our weather has had a mind of its own (well… that’s not completely true, is it?). Anyway, it was so windy yesterday, that I’m not even surprised that I have not heard any birds today.  They were probably ‘blown’…
