Relaxing in front of a fireplace or around an outdoor fire?

I'm probably in the minority but I love a cold rainy Sunday.

We spent yesterday looking at properties and houses on the Northern Neck of Virginia. In a few years, we want to leave the DC metro area.

It was an interesting day. Some places were very rural, a bit too much for me. They were too far away from any doctors, grocery stores, etc. Did see a few places that were a more reasonable distance but it would still be a huge change for us. You get spoiled when everything is within an easy drive. Going to keep looking at places in Virginia near or on the water, either the Chesapeake Bay or one of the many rivers.

Today is a lazy day for reading and finding my next guilty binge-worthy show.

I hope everyone has been having a good weekend.

Fries. I constantly confuse my Canadian in-laws when I mention chips or crackers.

Croissant or Bagel?

Larry, I'm glad you are finished with your treatments.

Cynthia, the outdoor dance class sounds amazing. A neighbor here has been doing yoga classes in a nearby park when weather permits.

My son went to a concert last weekend. It was held at a county fairground. You drove your car in and had your own space. He was very happy to find a safe live music event.

I think I have too many streaming options. Too many choices lead to not making any choice.

It's been warm and humid for the last few days. Today is beautiful. I'll enjoy it because I am sure I'll be complaining about the cold before too long.

I hope everyone has a good weekend.

By My Side

I am trying but three days in a car make my progress seem very far Thankfully the sea has come to my rescue again. Salt air, endless ocean views are friends Patience you continue to show mile after mile day after day Eventually helping me find my way I question again and again Why am I so different, so bent Maybe that's why you were sent When others around me laugh and enjoy good times...

Recommended Read Learning to Fly

Dear Dad, I should have done this so much sooner but I am a procrastinator as you well know. Sharing my thoughts with you now is the very least I can offer. Soon you won't remember my words and perhaps not even my face. Fate is cruel, stealing your memories but leaving your body healthy and intact. From the time I was little I always felt safe with you. We had so much fun and not always...

Recommended Read Snowstorm

Anticipation is high for the first snow of the year Trips to the store, for bread, milk and more Everyone feeling a bit anxious, maybe a bit of fear Checking my supply of batteries, the seals around doors Weather forecasters in their own heavenly bliss Staying up around the clock, inches first, then feet My hubby and I get ready for bed and share a night kiss With that much snow, we need...

See Saw Soul

Misery Loves Company

As a parent, you warn your kids about the dangers of the world.  Hopefully, they grow up safe and sound, after heeding your good advice. I had managed to do just that, I raised three boys to their mid-twenties and they are good men.  I proudly passed on my sense of humor and sarcastic outlook on life to them. I was not aware that I had passed on one other thing.  The idea that if you are...

We Always Go On

You used to worship and love all parts of me, do you still? Easy to do when things were tight firm and new Staring in my mirror, I see So many scars, flaws, surely you do too? Approaching from behind a kiss placed at the base of my neck Shh, stop, now's not the time I feel your lips travel and taste their way down to a scar on my arm Lingering, I try to pull away from you Hands turn me...

Heart Flutters

A heart flutters Sit, wait, watch wonder Window sill a bird mutters Eyes please open, see Fingers touch, pulse strong Light return to me Hours, days, each pass Smells assault from this place This surely not the last Beep, a small change Sounds, a voice says my name Feet running, feelings range Relief, guilt all mixed up Back to me, the bird leaves Confusion, I offer you a cup ...

It often starts with a small sound Maybe a little putt, putt or a sigh Some nights a freight train comes round I'm tired and need sleep, but no, I cry I do have choices, move to another room A pillow over my head, maybe earplugs too It's worse now that everything is in bloom Allergies, apnea, find out, but no not you I wander through most days, eyes bleary Love only goes so far, until...

We Remember

When I am ashes upon the shelf Will you remember me When you feel your skin tingle Will you remember me When you sense a breath in your ear Will you remember me When you see my toothbrush by the sink Will you remember me When you see my pictures Will you remember me I saw your name written in a book And I remembered I inhaled the scent from your clothes And I remembered ...

Gillian and the Three Mole Stories

Mole Story One I can't recall when I first realized I had a mole under my arm. It was located in the center of my armpit. Early grade school is my best guess. For the most part, I was blissfully unaware of its presence. Doctors had assured my Mother that it was harmless and there was no need to remove it. It was in third grade that my awareness of it became more pronounced. In those...
