Some years the new year comes storming in like a boss. Some years it flutters in like a feather in the wind. This year it sneaked in like my dog sneaks into my room. He'll lay with just his head and front paws on the carpet in my doorway, then he'll army crawl so his … Continue reading Here it is
A story of a nontraditional family. I also rarely use hand sanitizer. I don't iron clothes. We don't have regular meal times and if Max wants a home cooked meal he has to get it himself or have my mom prepare it. I haven't done his laundry since he was nine.

*Keep in mind, these words are my experience and my feelings.* I was talking with someone recently about volunteering, what it's like to be one and how to recognize others that are.

The job I currently do is so far removed from anything I have ever done before that I constantly worry I'll forget something or do something … Continue reading To do list
I got a new bike. My old one is 26 years old and although still serviceable and sturdy, it's heavy, and well, it was time. Old Red has been tuned up but I suspect it will live in the barn now. Since my mind is like a bee buzzing through flowers one thought leads to … Continue reading Oh the places you’ll go
I've had a few people ask me about this blog recently. To be honest it didn't occur to me that it might be missed. This particular post is not a memory or a cute observation.

I like to follow the sun. What I mean is, if I'm going somewhere and there's no hurry I will take roads less traveled and as long as I know where the sun is, I know I'm headed in the right direction. Yesterday I followed the sun on my way home in the morning. I … Continue reading Following the Sun
My dad loved Cool Whip. And black licorice and jelly beans. There was usually a stash of licorice and or jelly beans next to his chair in the living room. Mom would make real pudding, the kind you have to cook, not the add milk kind and dad would pile cool whip on top and … Continue reading My favorite veteran
