myself and everything else

My day, my dreams, and a few other things.

Happy New ?

Had a good day, 20yrs ago our middle son was born. We had lunch and a movie today with two of the three boys and their girlfriends, ate Chinese food and seen a good action movie(yes the one with Tom Cruise), oldest son had to go back to his home, time for college to restart.
I guess for me today is just another day. I mean it’s a very special day because our son was born, but just not that big of a deal about it being new years eve. I have gone out and celebrated the new year with my husband a few times and it was fun. Just never quite understood the whole new year resolution thing. I have never made a list of things I want to do starting on January 1st, seems like I have a list of things to do every week. I do like to day dream of things I would love to accomplish, but I never made a list of them for January 1st. I guess I am kinda strange. To me things happen when you try or sometimes things just happen. I am always the optimist, and I have accomplished a lot in my 43yrs on this planet. So I will continue on and try to make positive changes and try harder. Oh crap I just started to make a list. Time for me to go….
Happy New Year

I’ll make you say underwear….

After a very stressful couple of weeks at work I finally have 5 days off, YEA!!!!! Today was a nice day, all my boys home, I slept in til 0900. I even made a big pot of chili for lunch, it was good.
This morning when I first woke up, I went to grab some clothes to take my shower and realized I was a little behind in laundry, seems that I have not stayed on top of washing clothes, like I said earlier it’s been crazy around here. Well anyways to get back to the story, I reached for my clothes and all I had left in underwear was a clean but well worn pair, you know the kind with a few small holes around the waistband, or along a seam elsewhere. The kind of pair of underwear that I  planned to throw away but somehow forgot to throw away. Now I know you may be reading this and thinking this is stupid but I know all of you have a least one pair of underwear like that somewhere in your bedroom! I usually hold on to clothes that I think I might need someday. Clothes for; painting, working in the barn, gardening, hiking, camping.  These clothes are stained and some have holes in them, but all are washed and stuffed in a shelf in the closet. So I guess I am glad that I never tossed away this old pair of underwear, I was actually thankful for this old pair of undies, It meant I could take my time today, and wash my clothes in a few hours, which are now washing, while I sit here in my old jeans, my old shirt and wearing an old but clean pair of underwear while I blog.
See I told you I would make you say underwear or at least think it…

Merry Christmas

After a long day at work in the ER, I tried to think of something clever and witty to say on this holiday,  just can’t seem to do it.  It was a long day and a very sad one.  As most nurses know you grieve and move on to something else.   As does life, things happen we grieve and then move on.

So as this Christmas comes and goes, remember to move on and grasp the day. Be thankful for the small things and let the sunshine onto your face, and let the wind move your soul to happiness.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Ode to John

Growing up way back when, I use to listen to John Denver, yes, many years ago in the 70’s. One of my favorite songs from a Christmas album was Aspen-glow.  Now that I am older  I play one of my favorite Christmas CD’s by John Denver and this song always brings a warmness to my heart.  Thinking of snow covered mountains and aspen trees I have yet to see, dreaming of the  glorious Rocky Mountains out west. There are so many songs for this time of year, but this one is special. I guess this time of year walking in snow and thinking of big mountains gives me hope that things in this world will be o.k. So here is my ode to John Denver, the writer of beautiful songs from long ago, songs of trees, rivers, mountains and oceans, and all the creatures who live there.

The lyrics for Aspenglow by John Denver
See the sunlight through the pine
Taste the warm of winter wine
Dream of softly falling snow
Winter’s gold, Aspenglow

As the winter days unfold
Hearts grow warmer with the cold
Peace of mind is all you know
Winter’s gold, Aspenglow

Aspen is a life to live
See how much there is to give
See how strongly you believe
See how much you may receive

Smiling faces all around
Laughter is the only sound
Memories that can’t grow old
Winter’s gold, Aspenglow

Aspen is a life to live
See how much there is to give
See how strongly you believe
See how much you may receive

See the sunlight through the pine
Taste the warm of winter wine
Dream of softly falling snow
Winter’s gold, Aspenglow

A bowl of cereal.

How can a bowl of cereal bring me so much comfort. I remember growing up I would eat cereal daily, I loved all kinds. I would eat a bowl every morning before school, of course eating cereal did not agree with me.  Usually around 0900-1000 in the morning my stomach and bowels would start to rumble and I would have to make a run for the bathroom.  It wasn’t until I was in my last years of high school that I found out I had a problem with digesting milk(lactose intolerant).  I have to laugh sometimes when I think about how much misery I was in during the day and how embarrassing it was for a little girl to have to run to the bathroom.  Sometimes I get teary eyed too, well you know how kids can be cruel, and to have things go wrong with your digestive tract at school can make for a very uncomfortable day.  Throughout the years I started taking supplements to help me digest milk products and now in my early 40’s I can eat dairy products without any problems.  Actually, I just finished a bowl of cereal and it tasted so good, and it made me happy..

Pretty colors in the sky…..

Sunsets bring tears into my eyes.   The colors can be breathtaking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every minute staring into the evening sky.  Waiting and watching.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then the colors disappear, then a new day will soon begin.  

 

Can’t wait to see another sunset again.

Frosty Morn.

There is nothing like walking outside on a frosty morn.  The air is clean, sweet, and cleanses the soul.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sun cast a golden glow, wakes you up and starts the day just right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Try it for a minute if you can, take a short walk on your deck, balcony, or in your yard.  Take a deep breath and smell the frost.

AHHHHH!!!!

Sorry for venting.  Having Internet problems and now looking to switch providers.  It’s just hard to stay with a service that does not work the way you had wished, and it cost a good amount every month.  I have been with them for over 2.5 years and told it will cost money(a whole lot of money) to fix the contraption on the roof, enough is enough. Hopefully the new provider will at least work  on a regular basis.

It’s funny how much the Internet is in my life,  it allows me to visit this beautiful world and see things and educate myself.  I have repaired cars, lawn mowers, ordered parts that were not  found locally on my computer.  I have gotten tips on how to care for my animals and learned how to take better pictures.  My husband is finally getting on the Internet and a whole new world is opening up to him,  of course my boys have been Internet specialist for years.  I am just now starting this thing called blogging and I am enjoying reading the other blogs that you all work so hard on.   I don’t sit on the computer all day, but when I do get on the Internet I would like it to work.

Hallmark

Good evening.
What a bright sunny day, up with the sunrise and a lot done by 9a.m. Decided to have another cup of coffee and watch a little television.  DARN THAT HALLMARK CHANNEL!!! Watched an entire movie, their annual Christmas movie. Yes, the simple sappy movies they show every year around Christmas time.
The usual yearly stories about; long lost families reuniting, a single mother moves to new town out west and everyone helps her, two people fall in love while helping with the Christmas Pageant. Yes! I watched the entire two hour movie this morning, and I cried like a baby towards the end. I don’t know what it is about Hallmark movies. Such simple stories are told with simple dialogue, and yet every year I find myself watching. Needless to say I am alone when I watch these movies, usually catch them on a day off of work. I guess that is the attraction, simple not complicated like everything else going on in the real world. Thanks a lot Hallmark Channel for putting me in the spirit of the season after watching one of your movies today, now I will have to start baking cookies, get a Christmas tree this weekend, and listen to Christmas music, and definitely catch another movie.
