Helping Chippy

We were up at the cabin today. We put the bird feeders out on the deck as usual. Once the birds started feasting, the chipmunks arrived to clean up the floor. My dad then realized there was no water for them. The water dish he usually used had been moved to below the deck while […]

Funny Memories

I was happy to get together with my sister today. As she was driving, she was thinking of all the fond memories she had at the cabin. One time, she was putting her son to bed and saw a bear on the deck. She yelled and my mom ran and got a pot and a […]

Technicolor Dreamcoat

A couple of days ago, we learned that a site on YouTube would be showing musicals by Andrew Lloyd Webber each weekend. It started this weekend with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with Donny Osmond as Joseph. I had never seen this entire show, only clips. My mom felt certain that she and my […]

Zoom Zoom

A couple of days ago, I connected with my mom’s exercise class via Zoom conferencing video call. It was great to see and talk with all those who signed on. This afternoon, my prayer group tried it as well. Some had a hard time connecting, but again it was wonderful to touch base and see […]

Finally Painting

For the past couple years, we have been celebrating my sisters’ birthdays by getting a group of friends together and having a painting party. It has been hard to make this happen, but today it finally worked out. Last night, I really enjoyed baking cookies and muffins for the event, even though I was up […]

Purple Booties

Knowing that it was going to be very frigid weather here, my brother got some purple rubber booties to protect his dog’s paws. This morning he got her all layered up with a shirt, coat, and the new purple booties. Before they headed out, she walked all around lifting her feet way up off the […]

Contagious Happiness

This morning after my aqua aerobics class, I sat in the hot tub for a few minutes. When I arrived, a couple of other people were already there. One of the men was talking about a Santa Claus Convention. He wasn’t a participant of the convention itself, but was able to see some of it […]

Old But Mighty

I saw a story that was shared today about an 82-year old woman who is an award winning bodybuilder. Evidently someone broke into her home. She defended herself against the young man who was almost twice her size. She used furniture as weapons and even jumped on him when he was on the ground. By […]

Wreaths With Friends

Last year, my sisters and I got together with some friends and made Christmas wreaths. We had such a good time, we decided to do it again this year. My sisters and some friends came over with cut boughs, decorations, ribbons and lights. We had some snacks, put on Christmas music, and got to work. […]

Children on Break

The schools in my area have Thanksgiving break all week long. So, this morning at my mom’s exercise class, one of the interns who is an older man brought his 3 children with him. Also, a couple brought their granddaughter. During the class, all 4 kids sat on the floor while the other caregiver who […]
