Who doesn't love sunflowers? Creatures big and small love sunflowers! I started planting sunflowers early spring all to have a creature eat every last sunflower seed! I suspect a squirrel. Photo by Juhasz Imre on Pexels.com I planted another round sunflower seeds. Thrilled to see them sprout to six to twelve inches in height! Yeah!... Continue Reading →
Life has completely turned upside down since the changing of the clocks back in March of 2020. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if the dinosaurs returned. Today, the dinosaurs have, indeed, returned much to our grandson's delight! I am delighted the dinosaurs prefer lettuce over sunflowers!
I have a love hate relationship with the face-mask. Mostly hate. My Mom is hearing impaired. She reads lips. Due to her declining health, she is in hospice care.

At last, the sun shines today! The forecast, however, is calling for MORE RAIN over the next 10 days! Sigh. I'm growing tired of grey days and rain.
I usually don't complain about the weather unless it is cold. I do not like being cold. If it is below 70 degrees, that's it. I'm complaining. This spring, however, I find myself complaining about the lack of sun light. Over the winter, I yearned for bright spring sunny days but so far we have... Continue Reading →
I found the following description fitting for me this year: “Families are inherently unmanageable — ragtag armies at times, yet with a unity even they don’t fully understand. Someone is always pulling a thread, throwing the whole thing askew. Yet the threads remain, binding us to one another even when geography and other priorities pull... Continue Reading →

Now, December is upon us as well snow . . . . . .and baking season. Cookies, breads and pies are not the only things baking this month. I have a few more... Continue Reading →
