Choosing Paint Colors

I took some color samples to our board meeting this afternoon.  Our open-air venue house, opened up in the back with a 20 foot opening for a stage area, is ready for paint colors to be chosen.  I had checked pictures on the internet for clues of how to pain a Victorian house, and had […]

The Right Attitude

As I go about fund raising for the open-air venue to be created by renovating an old dilapidated Victorian house, each step of the way is being achieved almost miraculously as material and labor comes in daily.  If I had not had so many closed doors and near failures in the past, I would be […]

Where is Heaven?

I got into a discussion with some friends on an internet gaming website the other day.  The question posed by a regular contributor was, “Where is heaven?”  Not a question you would normally expect from this crowd, but they surprise me at their depth and insight from time to time.  There were a variety of […]

Poor Manager or Scammer?

My husband came in today with his feathers all ruffled (a term my sister who raises chickens uses).  He volunteers at a food and clothing pantry in town and he described a couple that came in and dated their application for food as Feb. 27.  It obviously is March 3rd.  I asked what the difference […]

A Good Day

Yesterday, I told about an old friend visiting.  We both slept late this morning, got dressed, and made breakfast. Good biscuits, bacon, yard eggs and tomatoes, and good conversation as my husband joined us from his work..  yumm… There were chores I had to do this afternoon, and she rode along with me.  It reminded […]

Remaining Silent

Keeping my mouth shut hasn’t always been my greatest skill.  If the situation arises, it feels so good to just say what I think.  But in retrospect, the consequences haven’t always been desirable.  Today was one of those days when it was best to chose a plan of action based on keeping good relationships and […]

Old Friends

Joy can come in contacts from the past.  Today, I spoke with two of my best friends from years gone by.  Both by telephone calls.  And that was the hitch.  I just got a new phone and didn’t know how to answer the ring.  I got busy looking through the instructions of how to do […]

The Peacemakers

I wasn’t born a peacemaker.  I believe in standing up for my rights and letting the chips fall where they may.  But as my age advances, I have learned to chose my battles, and most of them aren’t worth getting too upset over.  At least not to the extent that I leave debris laying around […]

One Of Those Days

There are those days when a person just shouldn’t have gotten out of bed.  Today was one of those days for me.  It started out with me starting late on a two hour trip to a hospital clinic where I had an appointment.  I saw a roadside sign that said,”Prepare to slow down ahead.”  I […]
