On the Road to Forever

On the Road to Forever

February 12, 2014   The sun is out today but the sky isn't blue it's white.  The precursor to our upcoming blizzard, Winter Storm Pax, I suppose.  Tomorrow should be a good day for shoveling the 12-18" we are predicted to endure and for working on my taxes. Today I am catching up on house things...from laundry to bookkeeping work...a...

Winter Storm | Hercules |  January 2-3 2014

January 7, 2014 I don't know if it's just me who thinks this way, and it just may be....but the person whose sitting around with a pencil and a piece of paper trying to determine what NAMES we should be giving winter storms should cut it OUT!    Stop naming them.  Because when  you name something Hercules.... it is going to...

Small Business Saturday....

Small Business Saturday....
November 30, 2013 The stores in my town were still pretty crazy today with shoppers walking from one to another looking for whatever they think they need to put the HO Ho in their holiday. The headline in todays paper read "Bleak Friday"  and it made me actually laugh out loud.  What do you expect?  There are people without jobs, peo...

Thanksgiving Day and shopping in my Santa Claus jammies

Thanksgiving Day and  shopping in my Santa Claus jammies
November 28., 2013 I was up late again last night so this morning I slept in a bit....7am to be exact.  I could hear the rustling of pots and pans coming from my kitchen and the beginning scent of something in the oven.  My husband has been the chief cook of the holiday ham and turkey from day one of our marriage and with there never ...

Santa Claus is coming...to town!

Santa Claus is coming...to town!

November 9th, 2013 Santa arrived at malls everywhere today and with that came a flurry of activity.  Pun intended.  He arrived by helicopter {no snow = no reindeer}  at the mall I was shopping at but I missed the landing as I was still in town taking care of some chores before I shopped. I could hear the kids screaming as s...

Consuming, Rewarding, Constant ~ the story of a logo ~

Consuming, Rewarding, Constant ~ the story of a logo ~
 October 23, 2013 In all of the years I have put pen to paper I never really gave any thought to the design of the area surrounding the words.  For me it was merely a venting out of all of those individual letters that formed words into a sort of readable journal of things around me.  Nothing more...nothing less. Then I bec...

My voice through the clicks of the keys...

October 16, 2013 Someone sent me a message earlier in the day asking me did I hear about the Martha Stewart blogger comment big ta do and did I read what other bloggers are saying about it?  Nope.  I was busy doing all of the things I normally do in a day so I initially missed out on the interview that apparently rocked the blogging commu...

6...16...or 60...

6...16...or 60...
I've often heard it said, "time heals all wounds". Not all. This weekend is the anniversary of the death of our only child and regardless if it is six years, sixteen years or sixty years....it doesn't seem to get easier.  The grief changes, yes of course.  But her absence will be felt with every breath I take until there are no more to take.

I was entering mine faithfully every time I got a receipt and then when the prizes on the APP d...
