Love is patient, but I’m not. Oh, I can patiently wait in a grocery line. I patiently listen when my son discusses the latest video game. I’m patient while I hold the door for an elderly person who walks at a snail’s pace.

Do Your Clothes Fit?

0002

I admit it! I have some clothes that just do not fit! Mostly, they are too tight!  I have kept them in my closet even though they haven’t fit for years.  Yes, friends. These are my “skinny clothes” and really are out of style.  These few favorite pieces of mine are from a time when I […]

I have a favorite bowl/large mug that I enjoy eating cereal out of.  It is somehow the perfect shape and size. It is also special because my daughter gave it to me. This is especially true when I eat a bowl of cereal before going to bed. Even more true when I eat the cereal […]
