Never Again......
Thursday, November 26, 2009      5 comments

Tuesday I did something that I have NEVER done before. Maybe I should tell you first that I was a Family and Consumer Education (Home Economics for those of us who are older) teacher. I tell you this, because to make the perfect pie crust was ... Read more

When my Dad was a little boy and stayed on his Aunt and Uncle's farm during the summer months, he would beg his Aunt for a story before he went to sleep at night. She would tell him stories of how his Grandmother came over from Scotland and how... Read more
Thanksgiving "Past".....
Tuesday, November 24, 2009      3 comments

If you are a Boomer (like me), close your eyes for a moment and picture your best Thanksgiving memory as a child. We grew up in a different time. Yes, there were stresses, but life didn't seem to go at such a breakneck speed and family seemed ... Read more
Holiday Blues?
Monday, November 23, 2009      6 comments

My Dad died in 2000. One would think that after 9 years the empty feeling of Thanksgiving without him would have passed, or at least numbed somewhat. But it hasn't. Because Thanksgiving is just that......a day of giving thanks, our family do... Read more

The Elusive "Exercise Cat"
Saturday, November 21, 2009      4 comments

For the past week, I have caught glimpses of a beautiful Calico cat in our woods. She is very wary of humans and quickly hides when she knows I am coming anywhere near her. It has been an unusually warm November (we often have snow by now) and... Read more
Great News!!!

It seems that we are more likely to spend more time and energy on the bad news in our lives and some of us can even dwell on it to the extent that we become severely depressed. Instead of telling you about a negative experience, I am going to t... Read more

My Favorite Day of the Week
Wednesday, November 18, 2009      2 comments

Wednesday is my favorite day of the week for one reason. My 2-1/2 year old Grand-daughter spends from 4PM till around 8PM with us. From the minute she bursts through the door (and I do mean BURSTS!), and immediately shouts,"Where's my Gramma?"... Read more

When I moved back to my home-town, my son was 5 months old. I knew that I would try to find a teaching job (part-time) because I love to teach and needed to bring in a second income. I also knew that I needed to find other mothers with childre... Read more
Do You Have a Knee-Replacement (or two)?
Friday, November 13, 2009      0 comments

It will be 2 years in March since I had my right knee replaced. I was very fortunate to have an excellent doctor who did the replacement by using a computer which made the replacement as close to the position, size, etc. of my "Old" knee as pos... Read more
