Why am I so intimidated by my laptop? Is it simply that I am old and it is not? Could it be because I often lose things and cannot get them back? Is it because my limitations are so obvious as compared to its possibilities? Is it because in these days my fingers fumble and hit wrong keys? eyes... Sign in to see full entry.

Not Yet Resigned, But Nearly There

Thick as pea soup are the workings of my mental powers on this dismal day that has only worsened since I returned from being out in it. And on this murky day my lease arrived on the computer for me to read and sign all 37 pages, make copies for myself, and other necessities to attest to, and my... Sign in to see full entry.

One Has To Have Colcannon

I'm already thinking about corned beef and cabbage and colcannon and it is making me drool. St. Patrick's Day is on the way and I have nothing green to wear--at least not the Irish green. I used to have a pretty neck scarf that color but I don't know whatever happened to it. But, I'll be singing "Oh... Sign in to see full entry.

Superman Brought Down

Not long ago I told my Florida Son that he was doing too much for a man who had turned 60 and that he needed to have some time for relaxation and taking care of himself. He has a full-time job that is very demanding, has been for some time doing a lot of work on his house to make it new again, has... Sign in to see full entry.

Murky Thoughts

On this dark, damp, dreary day of doodling and dragging my thoughts behind me as if they weighed a ton, I remembered a family on my husband's side of relatives that I had heard nothing about since most of the people in that family line have passed away. The Missionary Conference that I mentioned on... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Have Gold In Your Portfolio?

I happen to be one of the few people in this life who has never striven for riches in abundance, rather being satisfied with "daily bread" and needs met as they come up. In fact, I have never acquired "a portfolio" or gold coins to place in it. I don't "play" with the stock market, and I use my... Sign in to see full entry.

One Of Those Blah Days

No, not blah blah blah. When I'm having a blah day, I don't do much talking to anyone. It is already evening today and I have verbally said one sentence to someone who stopped at the door. Even computer talk has been very limited and I have totally ignored the phone. Now and then I get that way. Not... Sign in to see full entry.

Why, Betty, Why?

It's like I'm afraid I'm going to miss out on something these days. I found myself sitting in my recliner, feet up, laptop on my lap and behind it was the TV with the news on and it looking like it was sitting on top of the laptop screen, and an open book settled on the wide arm of the chair. With... Sign in to see full entry.

To Keep My Mind Working

Sometimes when I intend to write something in the way of a Blogit post, I sit and stare at the keyboard and it looks foreign to what do I do now to get my thoughts where I want them. Sometimes I have to look all over the keyboard for where to finger tap one letter or one direction I want.... Sign in to see full entry.

Early To Rise

No matter how early I go to bed these days, or how late, it doesn't seem to make a difference, but I wake up around 4:00 a.m. and I can't stay in the bed any longer even though it is still dark and cold. I always look out these winter days to see if there was new snow while I slept. We did have snow... Sign in to see full entry.
