The Good Old

There other day when I was preparing a meal, I pulled out my aluminum colander and used it to rinse vegetables. I shouldn’t call it mine because I got it from my mother-in-law’s kitchen when we cleaned out her apartment. I think of her every time I use it. Her kitchen was fully stocked with […]

Lessons from the Eclipse of the Super Flower Blood Moon

Last Wednesday, at 3:30 a.m., my alarm woke me up. I drug myself out of bed, debating whether it was worth the effort or not. The issue remained unresolved as I threw on some clothes and woke Hubby. We drove a few blocks up the hill to a place where we had a great view […]

Bucket Lists

Hubby asked me the other day if I had a bucket list. I’m not sure if I do or not. Do you have one? A bucket list describes all the things you want to do and places you want to go before you die. The term became popular after a movie, The Bucket List, came […]

Happy Mother’s Day

Being a mom is a lot of hard work and some efforts aren’t appreciated until 20 years later. There are days when it’s a thankless job, but those are far outnumbered by the days when a mom’s heart is so full, it leaks out her eyes. Those are the treasured days and memories. In a […]

One More Year

Another birthday passed. I appreciate being able to add another year to my age because it means I’m still here. Add to that good health, family, friends, and full stomach, what more could I ask for? When I go through photos taken throughout my life, I remember those times like they were yesterday. They seem […]

Thank You

I began writing this blog in June 2014, not knowing what would come of it. I jumped in without knowing much and kept going. The first one was about aging parents. Seven years later, I’m still writing a blog and my parents are still aging. That’s special. I don’t follow the advice of books and […]

What Comes Next?

Before the pandemic, Hubby rarely went through a drive-through line. He said it was too confusing and took too long. Even at fast food places, we parked, went in, and carried out food. To me, it was a waste of time, but I always caved unless I was driving. Our rule is the driver gets […]
