There are so many tools we can use to help us with just about anything around the home or office. I found Sticky Notes on my computer! My husband always talked about sticky notes he used to use at work.He is a list maker, so go figure. Me, it is all in my head. It…… Continue reading What Good is a Tool ? They are only as good as the user.
Sometime things just don’t work out no matter what you do. Sometimes you have done more than you should.You have overstayed too long and invested too much.You know when it must be time to leave. Circumstances no longer drive you from your inner core, to stay. You seek another place to plant some roots, another…… Continue reading It May Be Time to Leave
This post will be brief and I doubt I will spend much time making edits to it. I really want to get outside before the rain comes today. My marigolds need thinning and my tomatoes need watering and I have Japanese Beetles eating my petunias. I welcome Winter when it comes to Minnesota each year…… Continue reading What Book are you Reading Today – Why? Why Not?
I am not sure why but it seems that more times than not, without looking at the clock, I seem to know what time of day it is.

I am working on the knee types. I finally have learned the correct position and alignment of my arms…… Continue reading Can an Old Woman do Pushups?
It would be nice if I could just put a question out there and have it answered for me. I feel like I am getting nowhere, and then, when I get there (nowhere), I am back again (nowhere). Stages of life can be slow or fast. Does this sound like your situation? Retirement years have…… Continue reading Where is This Leading?
I like to reflect on the times we live in, because of others who stood in the gap for me. Those who did what I could not. Those so brave to lay it all on the line for me.
