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…

A Very Brief Rant. Mornings ARE NOT MY FRIEND.

I am not a morning person. I never have been. I love staying up late. I love the nights.  The world is quieter. Mornings bring noise. If nothing else, it brings the park into our home through the radio. First you have the blare of an alarm clock. Then the repeated alarm sounds as Danny…

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….

Way Too Early To Start My Day /Sarah’s Ramblings

Way Too Early To Start My Day It’s December 12th. Danny’s alarm has been going off for almost 30 minutes. I hate alarms anyway so I really can’t stand “SNOOZE”. It makes no sense to me whatsoever. I got up as soon as the alarm went off the first time. I need to get Danny…

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….

Thank You Florida! Fall Is Here In Our Neck Of The Woods!

The last few years, Florida has had much hotter weather. Winter never came. In January, we saw 90 degree temperatures. We were still While I am thriving, Danny is freezing . Of Course he has been cold all summer when it was in the 80’s here. The AC has only been off one day. Today…
