My Road Trip To Illinois Has Begun/Part 1

My Road Trip To Illinois My trip  actually began around 10 PM. I was amazed how relaxed  I was tonight.  All day, in fact. I had the house picked up. Vacuumed. Laundry : Washed, Dried And put away. Dishes washed and put away. I was packed by midafternoon. I amazed myself and actually got unpacked…

My Birthday Part 2 /Plus My Memories Of Past Birthdays

Danny was wonderful for most of my birthday. As I mentioned in Part 1, I woke up on Wednesday in a bad mood. It didn’t help that it was gloomy outside. Dark And Cloudy. Humid. I had trouble shaking off “The MOOD”. I knew a lot of it was because I was missing my dad….

Quieting Your Heart For The Holidays/ Update from Sarah On Week 1 And Life In Our Neck Of The Woods/ Week 2 / By Time Warp Wife

From Sarah :
I am starting this wonderful study today. I wasn’t prepared for it when Advent started last week. I could blame it on the fact we were in Plant City until Tuesday of the first week. I had plenty of time to get ready for it here. I could have shared the first week on time but I chose family (In my case , Danny) and held off. Lighting Advent candles at a B & B could have been done. We had the whole house to ourselves. I still chose not to. I wasn’t ready (in my heart ) to begin.
My HEART WASN’T QUIET.
MY HEART hasn’t been QUIET in a very long time.
I was praying that our mini- vacation would bring us closer and in a way it did. Yet, NOT IN THE WAYS I NEEDED IT TO.

Four Days In Plant City : Trains/ Large And Small

Danny And I were in Plant City for 4 days and 3 nights. We left our house around 10:30 AM Saturday Morning, November 30th. If it would have been up to me, we would have left the night before. LOL, Probably not though.The traffic would have been a lot worse than it was Saturday morning….

Not The Normal Way To Start The Day.

It’s almost 8:30 AM. Danny and I were out before the sun came up looking for a water leak. We knew it would be a good size one.There’d been enough time for it to come to the surface. So we started looking again. We had already spent hours yesterday looking. There are old water lines…

What Happens After Danny Comes Home 

We have some kind of snack.  Danny leaves to change his clothes. Lunch box gets emptied.  I unload the bucket of ice. Spilling the ice. Leftover hard blocks of ice go into  the freezer. Then we talk about the park. What happened that day. Much of which I already know thanks to the radio. Usually…

My Afternoon At Home Waiting For Danny To Get Home

Got Danny’s ice tea  ready first. I never know when he will come home early when it starts thundering and lightning. His tea : 2 gallon sized teabags in a 1 gallon tea pitcher.  NO LEMONS . No sugar.  STRONG. Mine : 1  maybe  2 regular tea bag(s ) if it’s real tea. Lemons /…

It’s Been One Of THOSE FOGGY DAYS: Part 2

When you write a long post and it doesn’t post and you lose all of it. Then you start writing another one and your phone freezes again. That’s how I feel. It’s also one of those days when your photo doesn’t line up right. Vertical photos aren’t usually a problem. Better?  Good night from Our…

Happy Sunday! Smile! Enjoy your Family! Forget the cup of coffee. Have 2 or 3 cups if you want.

When Danny…
