The Perfect Sleepover

Not long ago, we celebrated my son’s 35th birthday at a steakhouse on a Saturday night. My husband and I arrived after his family, so I was met near the front door by 8-year old Breezy.  She’d been sent to retrieve us.  “Where’s Papa?” she asked.  “He’s parking the car,” I said. Just after getting us settled down at the table, pointing out our assigned … Continue reading The Perfect Sleepover

Thanksgiving Fun with Family

The girls were out of school for the entire week of Thanksgiving. They spent from Sunday afternoon to Wednesday afternoon with Gigi and Papa. We had so much fun. We made Christmas gifts–paintings, flour and salt ornaments, glittery pine cones, boxes, and more. Our ornaments turned out kind of puffy. The dough was dry so we added more water. The dough was too wet so … Continue reading Thanksgiving Fun with Family

Veteran’s Day Celebration

I don’t know about you, but I have had enough of politics this year.  Regardless of your leanings, these mid-term elections were ugly, ugly, ugly.  I need a break. Fortunately I found it on Saturday with a Veteran’s Day program at our fairgrounds.  Many of the elementary schools had back-to-back concerts.  It was delightful.  I got there early so as to get a good seat … Continue reading Veteran’s Day Celebration

Living in the World of the Jetsons: FaceTime

Technology, like art, is a soaring exercise of the human imagination. Daniel Bell When I was a kid I watched the Jetsons religiously.  I remember even then loving the idea that George, Jane, Judy, and Elroy could video chat.  Well, four decades later FaceTime brought us into the world of the Jetsons. The best thing about FaceTime for me is being able to see Breezy, … Continue reading Living in the World of the Jetsons: FaceTime

Do what makes you happy!

I pushed through the door of the cardio movie room and out into the gym.   An elderly woman asked me, “What are they doing in there?”   “They are buffing the floor,” I answered. “Can we still workout in there?” she followed.  I replied, “There’s still one girl in there.  I guess you could ask them.” I don’t usually engage in conversation with people in the … Continue reading Do what makes you happy!

Crack can mess with your brain

I’m a crack addict.   Yep, I’m addicted to Trivia Crack. If you know the application, it’s very close to what Trivial Pursuit was like.  You have to answer successfully three trivia questions in the categories of arts, geography, science, entertainment, sports, or history.  Then, you are given the opportunity to choose a category from which to answer a fourth question.  If you answer it correctly, … Continue reading Crack can mess with your brain

Happy Halloween Hoopla (Repost)

Every year I wonder what Breezy will choose to be for Halloween.  Her costumes are always done to the max, and are always so cute.  Or rather, she’s so cute in them! So far in her lifetime she’s been:  a lady bug, a jack-o-lantern, Super girl, Doc McStuffins, the green “Wicked Witch of the West” from the Wizard of Oz, Izzy from Jake and the … Continue reading Happy Halloween Hoopla (Repost)
