Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Noctural Old ladies...
The WORST thing about this whole menopausal thing is that a good night's sleep is nonexistent when one is living in Menopauseland.
Why...when one has to "get up" to empty a bladder...does the brain kick in, blocking more sleep?
High gear is what my brain shifts into at 3 a.m. Just about every night. It's the only time of the day it actually works efficiently. The rest of the day, I'm in a fugue.
Anyway, while my brain is working....here are some of my deep thoughts.
1.) Is there anything more delicious to the senses than a room temperature orange? Think about it...the juiciness; the scent; the flavor. God had his thinking cap on when He designed fruit!
2.) Since our economy has been hit so hard...donations to charities have surely dropped. While we may not be able to donate monatarily any longer; the gift of gently used clothing and household items, canned food to a local food pantry, or old towels to an animal shelter still makes an impact to those who need them.
3.) My daughter wants me to make a trip to North Carolina....that would be a DOG FREE visit. She used the old, "Emmy wants to see her Grammy, and I want to see my Mom" trick. "Mom, they ARE DOGS!!"
What a dilemna! I love them...but my corgis.......well!!! What's a dog mama to do?
I never said that any of these thoughts were earth shaking in the cosmos realm of things..........he hee!
