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!

Saturday morning softball

I arrive at the game early and set up camp under the shade of several hardwood trees. Other than this fairly large cool haven, there is no other respite from Georgia’s late summer scorcher. This is an interesting part of the year, this week between the waning days of summer and the arrival of the autumnal equinox. Today marks the first game of little league … Continue reading Saturday morning softball

Amidst all the darkness of the year, there lives a little girl who … Continue reading Discovering the meaning of life

Snapped

It’s a hot Sunday afternoon and I’m watching a Snapped marathon. It’s one of my favorite things to do when it’s too hot to be outside. But since I’m a multi-tasker, I’m also playing Hay-Day, reading blogs, checking Facebook, LinkedIn, Messenger, texts, and emails, planning my weekly calendar, etc. A such, I just realized that Labor Day is coming up too soon. I’m about to Snap! No, … Continue reading Snapped

The conversation

I spent the day with Breezy recently while her parents took her sister to an all-day softball tournament. We had a perfectly delightful day shopping, and hanging out at the skating rink, which also has video games, laser tag, a jungle gym, food, prizes…..it’s just an all-around cool place. But in the car to-and-from we had some quality time for good conversation about summertime and … Continue reading The conversation
