My poor husband. Last week, I was the one in turmoil. This week, it’s his turn. As part of his routine, he gets on the computer and checks Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and the local classifieds (on average) 2-6 times each and every day. He is on the search for the ‘perfect boat’. Immediately after weContinue reading “May 11, 2021 – When it sounds too good to be true.”
If I could have special ordered the weather, I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. My hubby took me out to lunch for Mother’s Day and then we went to a local park so I could take some photos. I got some real beauties! This is one of my favorites.
Each day, things come to my attention that I cannot help but wonder about. Why am I the way I am and is there any hope for me? Why were spiders created and why do they torment me so? Will I ever figure out what I want from life or will it forever elude me?Continue reading “May 9, 2021 – Things I Ponder”
This is yet another photo of Cinque Terre, one of the most beautiful and tranquil places I’ve ever travelled to. If it weren’t for the fact that my husband and I got into a huge argument on the way there as a result of repeatedly failing to take the correct turn in the traffic circleContinue reading “May 8, 2021 – Photo”
I don’t know what it is about me but I feel like for the better part of my life, I’ve been ‘on the outside looking in’. It’s almost as if the world is a swimming pool filled with people (splashing about and laughing) and they’re all calling out to me, “Come on in, the water’sContinue reading “May 7, 2021 – On the outside looking in.”
This is a photo of a beautiful area just a short (20 minute) drive from my home. It’s a great place to go when I need to escape humanity and clear my head. It’ll probably be the first place I retreat to after I return from my trip. Just thinking about all of the stressContinue reading “May 6, 2021 – Photo”
Just to see the shocked expression on your face, I am tempted to show you a screenshot of my email inbox. Seriously, there have to be dozens of emails relating to reservations (made, modified, and cancelled). I think I’ve got a screw loose! I have never vacillated this much between dates and whether to flyContinue reading “May 5, 2021 – Travel Planning for Dummies”
When LA Ink was a huge hit on cable TV, my family stopped by High Voltage Tattoo. Kat Von D wasn’t in on the day we dropped by, but we had an interesting experience, nonetheless. My favorite part was swinging around to the back of the building. Wow, what a fantastic mural! My hat’s offContinue reading “May 4, 2021 – Photo”
I suffer from a number of maladies, my friends, one of which is ‘wet blanket syndrome’. Do not mistake it for ‘wet bed syndrome’ because although I did suffer from that in the past, I can say with a fair amount of confidence that that is no longer the case. No, I have ‘wet blanketContinue reading “May 3, 2021 – Wet Blanket Syndrome”
I love birds. I took this photo while in California many moons ago, either at SeaWorld or the San Diego Zoo. I have no idea what type of bird it is and although there’s nothing ‘striking’ about its features, I found it to be adorable in its own unique way.
