Hey there!   How are all y’all?  I hope everyone is doing well.  By now, everybody is either back to school or very close to it.  I’m so excited about this new fall semester.   I get to study subjects in my major, rather than all the core studies.   Last semester was interesting, but I’m not making a career of biology.  We studied things they hadn’t even discovered when I was in high school!  So, how do we handle the unexpected?  Grab a glass of something cold, find a comfy spot and lets explore!

Third Quarter Slump

Hey there!  How is everybody?  Hope all y’all are doing well!  It’s 88 degrees here, and the cicadas are singing!  They and their crunchy cast off shells are all over the place.  Sadie dog is so funny with them.  She’ll investigate one- very gingerly, yet intently sniffing it; then another one in the grass surprises her and she jumps backward stiff-legged like a cat.  It’s hilarious!  With that giggle, grab an ice-cold glass of sweet tea or lemonade, find a comfy spot to relax and let’s talk!  Continue reading

Just when you thought it was safe…

Hey, y’all!  I’m ba-ack!   Didja miss me?  I had no idea what I was in for when I jumped onto this rocket ship.  When I look back at the last few days, weeks or months, I just want to hibernate like an ol’ bear and sleep for about six weeks.  Maybe in August, lol.   For inquiring minds who want to know what I’ve been up to, I’ve been up to my eyeballs.   I am seriously writing a book.  I’m calling it “101 Days:  The Homeless Homeowner”.   Find a comfy spot so at least one of us can relax, and grab a cuppa something.  Let me give you the Cliff (or maybe over the cliff?) Notes! Continue reading


Hey there!   Hope everybody’s doing well!   As I write this I’m still in Kansas.  So, grab a cuppa something warm and find a comfy place to relax so we can talk about fear.  Yeah, I know.  Not a fun subject.  But we don’t need to fear it.  I’m not sure I totally agree with FDR on that one!  Fear is an emotion, it has a cause, it has a remedy.  It’s not a huge psychological thing, usually.   I know sometimes we may have things that are so big and so deep we need professional help.  But our day-to-day little fears don’t need to torment us!

Searching for…

Hey there!   Glad y’all could make it today!  The weather has been pretty stormy here a couple of days lately.  Once, there was a thunderclap and lightning flash at 3am that resembled a bomb going off in my bedroom.  Fortunately, the dog and I survived.  She was certainly searching for a place where she felt safe after that experience!   Grab a glass of tea and pull up a comfy place to sit.  Then join me on a quest!
