What Provides Inspiration? Certainly not a Colonoscopy

Like many of you, staying at home because of Covid gave Handsome and I have found inspiration to work on projects around the house. We are avid fans of HGTV. So we have been educated enough to be dangerous. We’ve worked on the yard. Reworked our garages, adding new openers and electrical outlets for future…

Change

By Kathryn Jane “In times of change, we can resist, or we can pull up our bloomers and get with the program–because change is gonna happen whether we like it or not.” With the world around us changing at a terrifying pace, we have decided to stop floating along with the current, and start swimming….

That’s Entertainment!

Staying home means finding things for Handsome and me to do. We love movies and thank goodness for TCM. Old movies rock. And no matter how many times I watch an oldie but goodie, I’ll watch it again. Here’s some I love:   Bridget Jones’ Diary-romantic comedy: a reinterpretation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice….

Memorial Day and Loss and Celebration

The US just celebrated Memorial Day, a day we stop and give thanks to all those in the military who lost their lives in service to the country. It was not a normal celebration because of Covid 19 with some places still in a stay-at-home mode and others in various stages of opening up. As…

Starry Night

When we look up at the heavens, we are captivated by the stars. They winkle and twinkle. They form constellations. We are guided by them. Isn’t it joyous to lay on soft grass and stare up with a loved one by our side? I love all things Christmas. I have many wonderful memories of decorating the…

Thanksgiving

I know our Canadian SOS sisters and our Canadian readers celebrated this wonderful holiday on October 14 this year, but this is the week for those of us in the US. I love this holiday so much I may start celebrating with y’all in Canada. A week is not long enough. 😊 Some of the…

Childhood Memory of Christmas

When I was younger, my family’s next-door neighbor, gave my mom a Christmas gift. Instantly, I fell in love. She was made of styrofoam, fuzzy pipe cleaners, sequins, and curly hair. A regular pipe cleaner was used to fasten her to the top of the Christmas tree which Mom did for many years. Until she…

Terrible at Keeping Secrets

I don’t really have a BIG secret. However, this one is important to me (and hopefully, you!). Last year, I decided on two new writing projects. Oh my, how the work tied me in knots. I was still working on my third romantic comedy mystery.  I’ve plowed through and turned it in. I’m working on…

Noteworthy

Recently, Handsome and I traveled to Italy and boarded a small ship to sail the Adriatic Sea. I like to journal when traveling. I jot down what we did, the weather (unbelievably hot), good–good and bad, but mostly good, people we met, aches and pains, etc. I took a keyboard which bluetoothed with my iPhone…
