January 2020

It’s January. January 2020.  When I started this site a few years ago I thought I would post often.  I have not.  I will now.

There is so much going on in our worlds that should be shared.  People to meet/help, places to go.

I don’t do resolutions, no point in them.  I am going to do a word this year instead.  What word will you choose? What will keep you on track, make you stop and think, keep you moving forward?

Share your word.  I’ll share mine tomorrow.

Happy January,

Rain, Rain please go Away


I love Summer and Fall, although not both in the same week. Weather is an odd thing.  Those that predict it, even odder.  It was to rain last night, this AM rain begins and is still with us.  It could be looked at as a wonderfully cool rainy Saturday. A great day to curl up with a blanket and a book.  Not quite fireplace season.

I love to do things outdoors in the Fall.  Love the colors, the pumpkins, apples and all things Fall. I do not want to dance around in the rain. Since I do not want to go to an indoor RV show, I will need to find some lovely indoor activity to occupy my time today.

Get ready for a Great Fall Weekend!

Do we need Things to DO ?

ljcy9ldvjwvq3orojwyhDo we really need to have something to do, plans to look forward to? Can’t we just spend the weekend in our PJ’s and binge watch Mr Robot?   We could, but what does that accomplish.  Do we feel better or do we feel like we just wasted several hours trying to understand Mr Robot. Do we feel we accomplished anything or do we just recite our to do list, the now longer version.

What if instead we took one of our days off, or even half of one, to learn something new. Experience something. Something that may even cause us to unplug and appreciate our surroundings.  Can we do that?  Can we relax enough to let go of the stress and “to do’s” and do something entirely not on the list.

What made me think of this is?  There is a Lima Bean festival not too far from me this weekend.  What is a Lima Bean festival and why are we celebrating a bean I am not even a fan of.  Oddly, I mentioned it to someone and they had been to it before and said it was a good time. Who would have thought.  I bet the festival folks thought is was fun and popular enough to have one every year.

I am now thinking of going.  It would have been the last on my list of places to be this weekend.  That is what this post is about.  Go to that place on the bottom of your list and learn, experience, laugh but most of all relax and have fun.

…….I still may go back to Mr Robot – once I think I’m smart enough 🙂
