These days, it really is the little things that mean the most. I try to find something to look forward to every day. These days it is: 1. My morning coffee. I just have one mug, with real cream. It is such a treat and looking forward to this makes it easier to get up […]

A mini road trip!

Comments Off on A mini road trip!

Our world seems to be shrinking by the day. Now that Rhode Island is a newly re-emerging COVID hotspot, we will not be taking any trips there to visit my cousin. What is left? Trips to the grocery store, trips to Costco and what else? When all else fails, there is always Dairy Queen. It […]

With all this shelter at home, I’ve learned to slow down and appreciate the small things. As for slowing down, one is “forced” to do this since there is nowhere to go. I am a morning person and definitely need coffee to get me going first thing. Mr. Ken and I had our moment of […]

Ack, will this virus thing ever end? It doesn’t seem so, here in the good old U.S.A. Here is more stuff that happens when one is stuck at home for months on end. 1. Trips to Costco. In the good old days, our trips to Costco were quite easy and simple. A few minutes before […]

Two words – online shopping. So normally, I am pretty disciplined when it comes to my online purchases. Well, except for exercise DVDs, but these don’t count since I consider them a necessity, up there with food and drink. 1. Feng Shui and Crystals. Feng shui, for the uninitiated, is an ancient Chinese practice of […]

A little rant

So this is rather tongue in cheek, but here goes. So my excitement last week was planning a trip to Ocean State Job Lot. Believe it or not, they have the best prices on Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran. Yes, my local Whole Foods carries this, but it is $3.00 more per bag! It’s the […]

All the news is depressing, let’s face it. While one can’t crawl into a cave and be immune from all that is going on the world, there has got to be a better way. I think I’ve found it. I try to get out and walk everyday. I try to take in my surroundings and […]

God Bless America!

It is so sad and disheartening to read the news these days. America is being torn apart and sometimes I feel powerless to do anything about it. And yet, I believe that we will survive and somehow pull together as a nation. The 4th of July is a bittersweet time for me since my Dad […]

So Mr. Ken and I decided to venture out to Rhode Island last week. I have a cousin who recently moved there and we are very close. We felt comfortable going to visit him because he has been staying at home, leaving home only to go for walks and to the grocery store. Since this […]
