The New generation

This afternoon as I was watching t.v. in the front room, my home phone rang. It was my son his cell phone in the backyard on the trampoline. He needed me to bring him something. Duh, no!

When my daughter & I went to pick up her friend the other day, she texted her to come out. I asked why my daughter couldn't go to her door to get her!

I can't believe it. I do not think it is laziness but rather a new way of thinking or communicating.

I can't wait until I am 80 & call them on the phone in the next room to help me out of chair!

Change of season, change of me

I am getting older. It is true. I feel I need to become classic & not so trendy but where to shop? Where to shop?

A chocolatey weekend

I had a great time celebrating my sister's 40th! We made chocolates and ate them instantaneously! The best!

Memory movements

This is the place that I went to this weekend. I have not been there for many, many years but one other time. My husband asked me if I needed to Google map it. I said no way. I knew the town, the store and the way to the property as if it was 1975 again.

I knew what would be waiting around each corner & where the forest ended. It definitely changed but not enough to get me lost. I had spent a lot of time there & it was etched in my memory.

So why this photo? This part of the forest had not changed at all. I could have drawn this from memory before I even arrived there to take the picture. How fascinating to me that that time has changed it all so much and yet so little.

It is a little piece of paradise.

Too cheap to buy new pants

I have lost a little weight lately. NOT PLANNED! I refuse to buy new pants. This is only temporary weight loss that I know. It is due to having a monster flu & stress. So I will wear my saggy pants proudly until I fill them in...again. My husband wants to know why I just can't go get new pants. Duh! That would break the I-did-not-try-to-lose-weight spell. Every girl knows that!

(Pass me another eclair by the way)

A day at home...

The flu has hit our house. I have had it & now my son has had it. So I have been home a lot this week. The sun has been shining & the puppy has been tracking lots of mud in my house. I am inspired by both the yellows & browns to redo my blog colors.

Plus I added a few photos of inspiring, colorful things in my house. I love the birthday cards sent to my son especially the homemade sticker sheet from his 3 year old cousin. My favorite striped blanket keeps me really warm. This blue tile was given to me by a friend who died & I love to look at the blues & remember happy times. I can't forget the puppy. He sheds his color everywhere.

A few words

Spring has begun to spring & I am ready. The funny thing is this week, I am entranced by the moon. It is so big & so round. (So cliche). I even took some fuzzy pics with my Iphone this morning running! (see above)

I am ready for spring this year. I am even running faster outside like it is already spring even with the cold still soaking into my bones.

Things I love right now:

1. The full moon & then the bright sun
2 Two new pairs of shoes for FL in April I found at TJmaxx
3. My IPhone & all of my music. (My kids are complaining I have the buds in my ears a lot!!)
4. Easter candy! Ate a bunch today.
5. My new pants from the Gap.
6. My blouse I bought on clearance in January from Boden but waited until now to wear it!
7. Laughing so much with friends
8. Walking my dog at night through the last of the snow
9. Getting back to book club after 1 1/2 year respite
10. My son's 12th birthday this week!

Come on spring. Come melt the snow & stick around for awhile

Outside with a boy & his dog

I do not know who has more energy - the dog or the boy! Oh boy! Or is that oh dog!

Hello it is cold here too

Hello from Michigan in January. It is cold. Florida is currently in the news because it is never cold there but is experiencing record lows in the 20's. So silly questions are being asked by Floridians like "Do I wear more clothes?" or "Can I go outside?". The answer is to all of those is "Yes, just keep warm!" My answer as it is always is in January in Michigan, is "wear lots of clothes like sweaters & undershirts under shirts." Remember there are only 31 days in January & only 28 days in February. Thank God! The weather will pass so hunker down & stay warm, Florida - pretty soon you will warm up! Just remember us up here in the cold.

I wrote this out for my kids the other day. They did not know what it meant. When I told them, that it meant "true love always" for their dad & me, they laughed. But I wrote a long time ago & it still rings true.
