The Temporary Normal

If you’re like Hubby and me, you’re stuck inside until the invisible storm dies down. From what I hear in the media, it’s dangerous outside. I watch the news about the pandemic, but I can only watch so much. Too much is too much. It’s a sobering awakening to find out you’ve lived long enough […]

What to Do, What to Do

We’re living in unusual times. With schools and businesses closing, people staying in their homes, and the hoarding of supplies, it’s little wonder fear is running rampant in the streets. Whether it’s the fear of dying, fear of doing without necessities, or fear of the unknown, it’s daily growing bigger in some places and in […]

2020 Winter Trip

Hubby and I returned from our long-planned winter trip. When we were putting together the logistics of the trip, we never dreamed an unseen hitchhiker might tag along. When we left, only a few states had confirmed cases of the coronavirus; by the time we got home, almost every state had cases. It really exploded, […]

History Lessons of Minidoka

Hubby and I explored Idaho history this past week. Several years ago, the historical museum of Idaho closed for a couple of years so they could completely redo the place. We visited for the first time and were amazed at how updated and modern it looked. There were lots of hands-on activities and short clips […]

Spreading Literacy

This past week, I attended a fundraiser for a local facility that provides tutoring in literacy, English, and GED tests. A non-profit organization, they have one yearly fundraiser to fund their building, the administrators, and faculty. They have a board of directors and maybe four women who run the place and work with the many […]

Old Time Church Songs

For those of you who don’t know, I go to the Church of Christ where our singing is all acapella. Voices blended in harmony is a beautiful sound, especially when giving praise to God. On Sundays, church songs flow through my head and out my mouth. I mostly know the old southern gospel songs that […]

Sleeping Problems

Ever have trouble sleeping? What do you do while you’re awake? Occasionally I can’t sleep. It’s mostly due to eating or drinking something with caffeine too close to bedtime. Like 6 hours too close. I seem to be very sensitive to caffeine at night. If I eat chocolate after 4 p.m., the earliest I can […]
