My weekend in a nutshell. Pride Weekend –
I was late to my “mom Pride hug” early meet-up but it was okay.
Moms and dads were giving hugs all over the place so you could join in anywhere.
It was very cool.
The whole parade was cool and the show of unity was super cool.

What wasn’t cool but pretty much expected?
1.) Parking.
2.) Lots of walking.
3.) Thousands of people.
5.) Sweaty hugs. – Still wonderful tho.

If you haven’t gone to a ‘Pride Parade’ you should go at least once in your life.
You’ll have some fun and the LGBT Community reealllly appreciates and needs the support!
Bonus? You’ll walk away with some warm fuzzies just for being a kind human being.
Omgosh. So, somewhere along the past week or so, my sleeping pattern got reversed and now I find myself up nearly all night!
I couldn’t figure it out. I wasn’t drinking coffee all night but I might as well have been!

I’ve been trying to avoid nap taking during the day to get back on course but I failed miserably today and I ended up falling asleep reading and waking up feeling like I’d been drugged. You know those kind of sleeps. The Wizard Of Oz poppy field sleeps!
My pup is having them too! All she’s been doing is sleeping!
Then I had my “aha” moment…
The full moon!
Do any of you experience the chaos of the full moon or are you not a believer in such things.
According to this article at accuweather.com, the moon does, in fact, affect us and our pets AND the sea creatures!
I’ve still got my fake cold going on that I had initially blamed on my AC.
Yeah… According to my dr. I have allergies.
Whatever. Still feels like a cold!
Okay. I need to know.
How was your weekend?
For all you dads out there. I hope your day was absolutely amaze balls!
Happy Father’s Day belated.

What’s happening with your week?
How was your Monday?
What’s happening today?

For me, I know I have TONS of reading to catch up on with all of you so that will be a couple of hours of my day – at least. Then it’s all about laundry, housework and errands.

When I get a free moment I’ll be working on gifts and catching up on my GoodReads reading.
Time – 5:55 – Angel numbers! Woo Hoo!
(A positive change is on the way for me. A BIG positive change!)
Temp – HOT!
Mood – Wiiiddddeeee awake!
Bitch, bitch, bitch – Zero
Best thing – Life
Be well.


First, I would turn it back to when all of my kids were little and at home. I don’t want to change anything because every word and every deed brought me my 3 amazing grandbabies. I just want to spend more time, take more pics, have more talks, more hugs, more kisses..  More “I love yous,” even tho grown son #2 told me just yesterday that all of his friends ask him why we say I love you so much. Then my son and I at the same time said, “Like you can say I love you too much.” I’m happy my kids still hang onto that.

This was my favorite toy ever. I kept myself entertained for hours until my brother came along and bumped my masterpiece.
2017-toys-etch-a-sketchI had this Barbie head too and melted the hair when I tried to use a curling iron on it.
I used to love playing these on the kitchen floor and the driveway.
2017-toys-jacksThis stuff is still around and altho as a kid I thought it was very cool, what the hell were my parents thinking??? This stuff is SO toxic.  Every time you inhaled to blow the balloon bigger you were inhaling those toxins.
2017-toys-plastic-bubblesMy favorite car ride toy.

2017-toys-silly-putty2017-divider-line-blue-icyI miss the simple stuff. Mostly I miss the people I used to share the simple stuff with.
I still buy coloring books – the real ones not the over-priced “adult” coloring books – and crayons and I can lose myself in coloring for hours.

If you could turn back time but change nothing, where would you go, what would you do and with who?

What are some things you miss from being a kid?
2017-divider-line-blue-icySorry for the late post. We actually got a foot of snow today and more is coming down. I’m so surprised. Last year we had a couple of dustings. I had to run to the store before everyone else was running there. So happy I made it there and back without personal incident altho I did witness several fender benders, sideswipes and fish tails going on around me.

They don’t salt the roads here. They put a deicer on them and then sand but they only do it on the main roads so getting around our neighborhood and out onto the main road was slow going and a little hinky.

It’s good to be home safe n’ sound. Time to snuggle in with my book and some cafe’ mocha.
Happy Wednesday!
