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!

Just like Rip Van Winkle....I'm waking up.

Greetings and Salutations dear blog buddies. 

Are you out there still? Spring is showing its pretty face this morning and I feel as if we're shaking off that dark, dreary winter (of discontent).

Life marches on, and via Facebook, some of us have kept in touch.  Corgis, books, zany thoughts are still part of life here in Small town USA.

Jim and I are still cheering each other on.  (He did not recognize us in the "yearbooked" photo that I went online and created.)
Addie is 13, blind with cataracts, and full of tumors. We focus on making her comfy and happy. Dixie is a bundle of pep and joy, which truly, honks Addie off.
The corgi girls have slept through winter, and they too, are beginning to wake up.  We are looking forward to being outside, working in the flower beds, soaking in the sunshine.

 The grandkids are taller.  Now 8 and soon to be 4.  Growing up too fast, but thanks to FB, we see pics as they are posted and can see what happens in their daily lives a little.  Sometimes we skype or facetime, but not often enough....yet.

I'm working part-time as a relief receptionist and go on outings with the residents on Friday and Saturday nights at the retirement home about six minutes from our home.  My mom is a current resident there in health care.

We dream of travel again, but for now we're working until retirement age. Thankfully everything is paid off, which is freeing, but the glory days of rv'ing is a  happy memory....for now!

Hope to get reconnected with my bloggie pals. Bless you  and hope that all is well in your corner of the world.

Don't worry.....ornery is still my middle name.

OMG, I'm doing a happy dance over here.
That pix of Addie and Dixie is so precious, Susan. Hopefully, the coming of Spring will warm A's little body and provide some relief. :)

Welcome back!

I am hopeful Spring will eventually settle in and make all of us happy.I just don't want too much too soon. We had beautiful weather this weekend and here in Colorado we never trust the warm days because we could wake up and see a foot of snow outside our windows! LOL! I am new following you. Sweet pic here and I am enjoying browsing at your blog.

Yay! Even though we're expecting snow in NYC my day is made. So glad to see you blogging again.

Just happened to check on old bloggers tonight - surprisingly there are a good many still out there, and you, my partner in crime, have bounced back after a long vacation. I have had thoughts of it as well, but - am still recovering from the loss of mom - it is a long road to healing. Orientation for my new job is Monday evening, and from there I will get my work schedule. Onward - to flowers I go!

Y'all come back now...

Y'all come back now...

Everyone is special, and counts!
