New Year Musings.

As New Year’s Eve grows around me, I sit here and I find I cannot remember last New Year’s Eve.  I cannot tell you what I did, where I was, or even who I was with. Geni and Leonnie were with their father the first half of those Christmas holidays so I had no housefull […]

“In a moment, just one moment life can change forever”…from Love and Other Drugs

Geni and Leonnie took me to the movies a couple of nights ago – because it is my holiday too.   How about that!!  Thank you for caring enough to see me and consider me.  The gift of this consideration did not go unnoticed.  In fact I celebrate it and thank you with all my heart. […]

Thursday morning, bright and early – my companion is the rising sun and a whisp of a breeze tickling my exposed cheek and arms.  One and a half days of work and then wo weeks holiday – yippee.  Two weeks home with Geni and Leonnie ; or around them often.  Two weeks keeping the clutter […]

Soppy movies

What is it with this time of year and racked up soppy movies…..favourite line from tonights’ ( The Wedding Partner 2005)…. I would rather fight with you than make love to anyone else. Even jaded old me, sighed. Perhaps I am not so jaded, after all.

wandering and pondering

This morning, after a hot and disturbed humid night of tossing and turning, I wandered out into the new week to find the air NOT any longer hot, but cool.  Immediately I was grateful for wearing a little three quarter sleeved jacket. I chose it because it matched the singlet top I wore with the […]
