  • New Walking Buddy

    1/18/2020 7:36:43 PM, by EGGABIRDIS

    We picked up Molly at local animal shelter. A good excuse for me to do a daily walk. Note to self. Not a good idea to take dog for a walk in a snowstorm especially if your street is on a hill and said dog doesn't want to stay out in the cold. :-)... Read more

    1/18/2020 6:48:48 PM, by HYGGEBYGGE

    "Hygge" is a Danish word that means being comfortable, at ease, cozy. It's pronounced HOOGuh, and the oo is like in the English word "boogie." "Bygge" is also Danish, and means to build. It doesn't precisely rhyme with hygge, but they are fun to say together. I'm not Danish, but these wor... Read more

    Aspirations in the sky, But tears are falling from my eye, Why am I not who I want to be, A bit of failure at half past three, I lost control at the vending machine, Since I blew it I ate ice cream, Next morning all is right, I forgive myself for last night, But deep inside it ... Read more

This week I've been harvesting and freezing broccoli - About 1/2 of it is still growing and should be ready soon. As you all know, when things are not good ... Read more

    Today I actually walked out to the mailbox next door. That was biggie for me. I did two loads of laundry, so seven trips up and down the stairs. I putzed around doing little things upstairs, mostly with my c-pap supplies. We went into the back yard and filled the feeders for the first t... Read more

    Fearlessness is like a muscle. The more I exercise it, the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me. I thought this was another good quote that seems to affect many of us who do not like change and have the fear of the unknown. Being fearless doesn't mean living a life that's c... Read more
