May 31, 2021 – Trigger ‘Happy’

Geesh, had I known the weather forecast was going to match our moods, I would have rescheduled our trip. Storms were raging outside as well as inside today and a looming, dark cloud has been ever-present. I am not sure exactly what’s going on but my husband and I have both been on edge. HeContinue reading “May 31, 2021 – Trigger ‘Happy’”

May 29, 2021 – Pinball Machine

Wow! Yesterday was a real humdinger! I spent the majority of it haphazardly running from one room in my house to the next, ping-ping-ping, just like one of those metal balls in a Pinball machine, trying to gather up bits of ‘this and that’ to take along on my trip. I think I ended upContinue reading “May 29, 2021 – Pinball Machine”

This is another photo I took while visiting my true-blue girlfriend (who lives at a much higher altitude). I have no idea what these flowers are called but I thought they were lovely. I probably should educate myself on the names of flowers before posting them but I missed the mark in this case. IContinue reading “May 28, 2021 – Photo”

May 27, 2021 – Communication Breakdown

I realized that I missed out on a few key phrases the other day when I talked about ‘the number three’ so I feel it’s necessary to mention them before I move on to the next topic. Primarily, three key phrases came to mind (after I published my blog-of-the-day). The first is ‘Three sheets in/toContinue reading “May 27, 2021 – Communication Breakdown”

Despite another bout of insomnia, I managed to drag my old bones out of bed and make good on my promise to visit my true-blue friend today. After I arrived, we had a delightful lunch, and once lunch was over, we stepped outside to view her property (and beyond). As we walked around, while sheContinue reading “May 26, 2021 – Photo”

May 25, 2021 – The Number Three

What is it about the number three? Nearly every night/morning, before I’m able to completely relax, close my eyes, and go to sleep, I gaze over at the digital clock on my nightstand, dismayed to see the number ‘three’ once again staring back at me. “Again?!” I think to myself. Why not 12 or 1Continue reading “May 25, 2021 – The Number Three”

Several years ago, my husband and I traveled to Wyoming to spend some time with our youngest son. He was doing the ‘resort circuit’, spending a few months here and a few months there, working in different capacities for various resorts. During our stay, we had an opportunity to experience some of the most beautifulContinue reading “May 24, 2021 – Photo”

May 23, 2021 – Self Improvement

If I’m being totally honest, I’d much rather discuss home improvement. That’s one topic I feel pretty confident about. Need to know how to lay tile? Check! What’s the best wood to use for fencing? Check! Is natural gas preferable for heating, or is electricity better? Check! Are solar panels worth the investment? Check! WhichContinue reading “May 23, 2021 – Self Improvement”

In between rain showers yesterday, I managed to snap a few pictures of some of the flowers in our garden. Of all the ones I took, this is my favorite. The name of this flower is Lavandula stoechas aka French Lavender, Spanish Lavender or Butterfly Lavender. It is often used for essential oils or potpourris. MyContinue reading “May 22, 2021 – Photo”
