The Fall

So what does one do when one falls, for real, in front of one’s parents? I chose to play it off as if it had never happened, as my parents drove back to their home. Of course my mother responded to the message I had left on their answering machine describing the accident, and she […]

The Scrambler

Although this post originally was going to be entitled, “Doggie Woes,” because of my questionable navigation skills, I opted for “The Scrambler.” My husband and I drove four hours to the beach, not bad, and were enjoying a lovely vacation until we continued to worry about our dog left at home with only visits from […]


Well, I know there is some hesitation about the vaccine that in so many cases has been a lifesaver, but I must let you know that I did certainly hop aboard that train myself. Honestly, I do feel somewhat a lot as if we are all in this together, and if what I do might […]


Well, my imaginary friends, I think I may have messed up my algorithms with this blog and my email and notifications and any sort of rational sense. I worked like all day today deleting and clearing out space, and otherwise trying to get my head back on straight, and now I’m just confused with not […]

Forest Dog

You can take the dog out of the forest, but you can’t take the forest out of the dog! Little Miss Doggie seemed very protective of a little something that she had on our loveseat, but I had no idea what it was. Finally, when she stepped away, I had a look. It was an […]

Grocery Visit

This is a little story that I would like to share with you all, not because I am silly, but because my husband is the best ever. He just might help me out. We have had Pound Cake on our minds at our house lately, so I went and got a recipe off of the […]

Earthworm Rescue

It was late in the evening, while my husband and I were watching Jeopardy! on the television, when I noticed an earthworm on the carpet in our television-watching area. This is all just fine when one knows that the dog can freely go inside and outside through the doggy door, and that she was raised […]

Best Sunday Ever

Yesterday I had given my dog a bath, so she was beautiful! I was able today then to do some of my chores. well, the laundry. Clean clothes for the workweek ahead! For lunch my husband and I composed the most nutritious salads from our refrigerator, and after having read about olive oil, I used […]


My husband got the last peaches on the last day of our favorite produce stand. Thankfully he got them turned into a fine cobbler, before they turned to mush. We ate the last of the cobbler this evening. It’s still hot as blue blazes, but I guess it’s the end of summer now. I’ve already […]

Book Nook

Guess what! I don’t mean to brag, but I cleared out an area in my home, and have made it into, yes, a “Book Nook.” I mean, honestly, who would not want to establish a place in their home for books, with a light nearby? Granted, everybody probably is on an e-reader, but I’m one […]
