Thankful . . . & LOVE AROUND THE TABLE

It’s already November. I have to be honest and say I’m glad to see the leaves fall. I really had kind of a rotten summer. Word to the wise: If you’re planning on having rotator cuff surgery (with complications, I might add), a little warning–it’s very painful and a much harder recovery than I ever expectedContinue reading “Thankful . . . & LOVE AROUND THE TABLE”

A Little Dreaming and Author, Linda Joyce

The other day, my husband, the talented pianist, was practicing a song from La La Land, “The Fools Who Dream.” I identify with that song. I am still, even at my age, one of those people who sees hope that all my dreams will come true. There was a time in my life when IContinue reading “A Little Dreaming and Author, Linda Joyce”

Remotely Controlled

CONTROL—everybody wants it. My husband, God love him, is a little bit of a control freak (she said nicely and with love), but in a good-hearted way. Me, I might be borderline, but hey, I know what I want and I usually want it right away. 🙂 My sweet dog, Bella, is even on thatContinue reading “Remotely Controlled”

A Handy Lesson and Jena C. Henry

Sorry I’ve been away for a few months, but I’m back now. Back from shoulder surgery. In fact, I have just begun typing with both hands. My right hand has been out of commission due to the cradle sling the surgeon made me wear for six weeks. One seems to appreciate all the things your dominant hand didContinue reading “A Handy Lesson and Jena C. Henry”

Perspective – The Spice of Life

Happy Memorial Day! Please take time to honor all our Veterans who died for our country and the freedoms we enjoy today!! I just returned from a great vacation. Now, I have visited California twice before in my lifetime. The first time was the summer after my sophomore year in high school. My mother had the bright idea that separatingContinue reading “Perspective – The Spice of Life”

Talkin’ Mothers & Welcome, Erin Bartels

With Mother’s Day approaching, we spotlight our mothers whether they are still living or have passed on, and remember fondly how these women have impacted our lives. My mother who was a unique yet troubled woman, taught me life lessons I will never forget.  I, being a mother myself, can only hope that I’ve been able toContinue reading “Talkin’ Mothers & Welcome, Erin Bartels”

I Choose, You Choose . . .

April is such a great month and quite eventful! This year, there was Easter, and of course, my birthday and coming up, my wedding anniversary. How cool is that!! We can also include Professional Baseball opening days (like the Braves in their new stadium). On the other side of the coin, there’s Income Tax Day and aContinue reading “I Choose, You Choose . . .”

For the Love of It!!

In my neck of the woods, nature has truly sprung! AAH CHOO! Yes, and there’s the green gunk all over the car. In the South, we deal with it. We don’t always embrace it, but we deal. Flowers are blooming, trees are greening. I’m blossoming, too—are you? To blossom means to bud, to flower, toContinue reading “For the Love of It!!”

March Madness

March is National Women’s History Month. Did you know that out of the 13 honorees in 2017 under the Theme of Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business, 5 of these women are from the southern states of North Carolina, Alabama, Virginia and Mississippi? Now these are some Strong Southern Women. When I think of March, I think of basketball – TheContinue reading “March Madness”

Tearing off the Tag

I was born in Savannah, Georgia. You just don’t get much more southern than that, right? As a child, I was expected to act a certain way. It was like I came out with one of tag like the one attached to a pillow (you know that says you’ll be prosecuted under the law if you yank itContinue reading “Tearing off the Tag”
