Before Christmas, I took Charlotte and Ben to Bounce U, an indoor inflatables park. Something they hadn’t done since school began. Ben’s suggestion. I thought it was a wonderful idea with school out. All the jumping would wear them out. We ate lunch at Subway first, because the open bounce session didn’t start for an hour. That also meant ice cream, because it […]
Back from the family holiday. What a wonderful time! Family and friends coming in and going out. Those present changing in rotation. Thankfully road crews had done an excellent job removing the surprise 7 inches snow from the streets. While many food items simmered and slow cooked, giving the atmosphere a cozy feel, we played a new-to-me game, Cards Against Humanity. A party […]

For you Create Me 365 followers, I wish you each the best of friends, family, and festivities.

It’s always bursting with quality handcrafted toys, attire, jewelry, camp gear, edibles, weapons, and armor tempting money out of 600 attendees’ pockets. Yesterday, I was one who was lured by its enticements. Norse-age women showing off their spunky […]
I can’t believe my best friends celebrated their 50th Anniversary. It’s not possible! I was in their wedding. How could that be that long? We double dated before we all got married. Road motorcycles together. SCUBA dived. Saw drive in movies together. Parked. That was the ’60s. We have woven in and out of each others lives over those many years. […]
