Ethics

Noisy, noisy, noisy. My new windows are being installed. Three days of this may send me over the precarious covid 19 edge. Ha. I don’t normally work in a noisy atmosphere, so I find myself having to make lists and move from task to task, rather than free-wheeling like I normally do. There are only…

The Water’s On

I made an unexpected trip to the ER a few days ago. Well, really, when are they ever expected? The last time I went to one, I’d had an allergic reaction to a medicine. This time I had the sensation of a cat sitting on my chest, high blood pressure, and arm pain – classic…

The Golden Rule

What are my dreams? Kayaking. Unlimited hugs. What are yours? I have been so encouraged by all of the wonderful giving and generosity I’ve witnessed since the Covid 19 breakout began. So many have stepped up to the plate with donations, sewing masks, sharing and caring online, the list goes on and on. What I…

Fourteen Inches

In a wry twist of humor, nature dumped fourteen inches of heavy, wet snow on Fort Collins, and dropped the morning temperature to 9 degrees.

Think

Mother Nature stepped up to the plate with some beautiful weather, warm temps, sunshine, and a tiny breeze, if any at all. Thank You. I couldn’t help myself and took two walks. I finished the flagstone steps in the backyard. Next on the list is putting together a decorative metal screen that I ordered. I…

Thoughts

Rather odd to look out the window, see patches of blue sky in a brightly lit canvas that drew me to the window, only to see snowflakes drifting aimlessly. I could not for the life of me see where they were coming from. Fifteen minutes later, the sky had lapsed back into its dreary grey…

Joke 19

Since Covid19 and 2020 played a giant joke on the entire world, I don’t think it is necessary for anyone to play April Fool’s jokes this year. We still have plenty of fools around anyway, all those who ignore the stay at home warnings, don’t wash their hands, or think this is a media hoax.…
