So for the last few months I’ve been doing some work online. Things I’m not super comfortable or familiar with doing, but doing well at them nonetheless, for the most part.Continue reading I am not a tech geek, or am I?
So today was Sunday, meaning Al and I enjoying a relaxing morning together. We both had chores to do before the day was done. He was given some wifi headphones last night, and because he mostly works in one room with Alexa playing music, he set them up on my phone which I listen to music with while cooking or cleaning.Continue reading I’ll Love You Forever And A Day
In the last 24 hours, I’ve seen and heard many things. Some were great, and some were not. This little ditty from my childhood came to mind with many conversations these last few days.Continue reading Things That Make You Go Hmmm?!
I remember when the first computer came into our home. Al and I were only married a couple of years, although we had already had two kids. My son was an infant, meaning this was about 24 years ago. When the first (to me) computer was in our home, I found it fascinating, although I had red flags and concerns from day one. I saw the amount of money and time it occupied in our young lives. I wasn’t comfortable with it, but there was no going back.Continue reading Let’s Talk Tech
After hanging with my sister to go see mom (we were trapped in the car for 3 hours) I picked up the granddaughters to come for a couple of overnights at the apartment we’re staying in. Well, they asked for a snack before we left the driveway.Continue reading Slow Your Roll, Baby!
Recently I had 2 different conversations that I’ve been thinking about for the last several days. The first one was about my use of the word home. I explained I was going home for the Christmas holidays. A friend said, “Interesting you call that home.” Well, I guess so if home is a location. To me home is where I feel comfortable, loved and safe. Home for me is with people I care about. Whether I’m in the USA with my blood family or in Boquete, Republic of Panama, with my friends that have become the family I chose, I feel at home.Continue reading My Heart is at Home
I’m taking some time to process and sort the feelings that can be overwhelming and the thoughts that can be heartbreaking when faced with a tragedy. I do that best through words, although not always spoken words for everyone to hear. But, written words that may never be read.Continue reading And Then There Was One
Today’s learning and remembering events Some things you’ve learned and yet somehow forget until something happens and then…..oh, yeah, right. Other things you thought you knew and then realize you are clueless Both happened to me todayContinue reading Another Busy Day
Today what do I see as I take a look around me? Do I see the sink full of dishes or the fresh baked pie? Do I see the dog hair everywhere or the little fluff ball that brings me joy? Do I see my to do list or that my life is very full of wonderful things?Continue reading I Spy With My Little Eye
Because I now live in Panama, holidays are very different. Today is Thanksgiving in the USA. Here it is Independence Day. If I were in the USA I would have been in the kitchen since early morning. Tons of cooking, setting up the Christmas tree, movies with the girls. Here, there is a parade that lasts for 12 hours. I was planning to walk into town and watch for a while, but it’s pouring rain, so I’ll wait and try again later.Continue reading Thanksgiving
