Dispatches From Quarantine - Year 2020

Remember when people wrote newsletters at end of year about how their year went, their accomplishments, their enjoyments, all the good things they could think of, and people who had mostly troubles didn't send one out at all. I used to get some of those in the first weeks of each January, but it... Sign in to see full entry.

Lest You Worry About Me*

I haven't been out since it snowed on top of the ice that came down that night. The snow is gone and the ice is gone but I'm still here. I'm losing my desire to leave my abode. You couldn't get me to go visiting, or to join a group to eat out at the fanciest restaurant, or even go to a church on... Sign in to see full entry.

The 6th Already

Midnight, just three and a half hours, will already begin the 6th and I've only accomplished two pieces of business that I needed to take care of. I used to be a go-getter keeping up with things before it was even time. I was a whiz at planning, accomplishing, but I have turned into a wastrel,... Sign in to see full entry.

Just Round It Up to $12,000 Please

An afternoon in the low forties (degrees F) and a small white snow cap on top with a drooping white snow scarf wrapped around the lower part of the windshield and the rear window is what is left on my car from the ice and snow storm other than nasty stuff running in the street. Tomorrow afternoon I... Sign in to see full entry.

I Finally Got It

After all this time of thinking I would not like Kindle for one reason or another, I finally downloaded it to my computer and plan to buy a Kindle Reader so I can read here and there and everywhere. I gave in finally because one cannot check books out from our library, and if I keep buying books... Sign in to see full entry.

Cosy, Comfy & CodyCross

It's been icing and snowing here since 3:00 a.m. and it is still coming down and piling up. My car can be seen right out my dining room window, or rather what can be seen is a great big pile of snow on wheels. I don't plan on going out today at all. It is great (so far) as I have always loved a... Sign in to see full entry.

It Makes Sense To Me

"To every American: This is the moment to protect yourself and your family. Stay at home as much as possible, wear a mask outside your home, socially distance, and avoid gatherings." - Dr. Deborah Birx, White House Coronavirus Task Force. I had fallen asleep in my comfy chair after lunch. A deep... Sign in to see full entry.

New Year & Resolving

"To rise above little things, to succeed in what I resolve to do, to make new mistakes and not repeat the old ones, to not worry because I'm not perfect, to be at war with my vices and at peace with my neighbors, family and friends." Each borrowed from the resolutions of various famous persons.... Sign in to see full entry.

Time Races to the Finish Line

My two youngest grandchildren about ten years ago. Megan is a teen now and Ryan is not far behind. Children grow up so fast. This is one of my favorite Christmas photos. Little children are so precious. So are the big ones: I have nine adult grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. How the years... Sign in to see full entry.

On Staying In

I hope I'm not going to feel as BLAH all winter as I do today! I'd much rather be vivacious, inspiring, and entertaining. All alone in my home I tend to be rather untidy, unkempt, and disorganized, thinking, "What's the use?" Sign in to see full entry.
