Ladies, don’t wear this blouse!

I don’t usually make a remark about the latest fashion but I just can’t help it this time.

First of all, these tops and dresses with the shoulders cut out. Not a fan. And especially not a fan of anyone over the age of forty wearing it. I saw an “older” woman at TJ MAXX the other day wearing one of these. She also had on rolled-up denim pants and heeled sandals. I do think that older women can wear some “younger” looks but not too often. This woman looked like she was trying to dress like someone thirty years younger. In my eyes, it didn’t work.

So that brings me to this. I subscribe to Target for e-mail updates and this came through titled, “Every fashion blogger is wearing this blouse”.  Well, I’m not a fashion blogger but I’m not going to wear it anyway. I scrolled through some pictures and honestly unless you are under twenty and weigh under hundred and ten pounds,  you should not wear this blouse.


I love how someone else tries to decide for me what I should or should not wear. There should at least be a warning on the label that says, “This style is not for everyone. Wear at your own risk.”

The same for these off the shoulder, big-ruffled tops. I saw a lot of women wearing them this past year. I saw only one woman who looked good in it and that’s because she made sure she had the “whole” look going on. Often what we wear on one part of our body is either completely messed up by what we wear elsewhere on our body.

For example, long tiered “peasant” skirts with high heels. It just looks awful.

I realize these are my opinions and you may not share them. And that’s OK. You can start your own blog and share yours as well.

Just kidding.

Anyway, sometimes it’s just fun to write about something frivolous and unimportant, especially since the day before I wrote about these terrible parasites living inside me.

Have a great day and God bless.

Grilled cheese and meat sandwich

An amazing grilled cheese and meat sandwich

I meant to post this a few months ago. I was scrolling through my media library and saw them and realized I hadn’t done it yet. So here we go.

I wish I could say this was a sandwich I had grilled but it wasn’t. It was my daughter-in-law. I have to admit though that if you decided to make this, it’s not low cal. It’s loaded with fat.

As you can see there are two kinds of meat and two kinds of cheese. The meat is very shredded and is not your typical “packaged” lunch meat. I think if you were going to make this, you would want to get the meat from the deli department and have it cut very thin. Here, the meat is turkey and ham and the cheese is cheddar and swiss. Real butter “pats” are laid on top of the top layer of bread. When she turned it over, she added even more butter.

You can see in this picture that’s it’s not a “neat” sandwich. That’s the charm.

Here’s a close-up. Amazing, huh?

God bless you and have a good day.

PS: If you need a smile. I just saw this “big announcement on a news show about a Hollywood couple who split after a long-term marriage. The long-term marriage was a full eight years! Duh, they were just getting started.

Then the husband remarked, that “they worked on their marriage really hard”. Really? Eight years are not that long. The commentator then mentioned how disturbing this news was. They were such a “close” couple. Again, really? It’s not the least bit surprising that a Hollywood marriage doesn’t make it, is it? Disturbing? No. But fairly predictable, yes.

I get such kick of Hollywood drama. Don’t you? (BTW, so you don’t think I’m being heartless,  I do think this divorce is sad because I think all failed marriages impact the people involved negatively. There’s usually plenty of “hurt” to go around. And in this case, there was a child. While sometimes a child is better off in the long run (I certainly would’ve been), they are still very confused and hurt in the beginning.


When ghosts are in your house

I’m kidding, of course. I don’t believe in ghosts.

But my grandson does think our house is “spooky”. Actually, when my husband was traveling a lot, my friends would ask me if I was afraid to be alone in this house.


I never have been. Maybe that says something about me, that maybe I’m not too bright.


I guess it could be a little scary to some people. It’s four floors. Our attic has regular ceilings, for example. And, of course, there’s the basement.

We are in a regular housing area but the road dips down in front of our house so it seems like we’re up on a hill all by ourselves. Plus, our driveway is kind of weird and our house sits on our property at an odd angle so our neighbors can’t really see our house.

So anyway, yesterday we had some huge trees removed (which prompted some interesting thoughts for the post tomorrow) and there were some pretty big thuds.

Later that night, around ten, all of a sudden we hear loud music coming from the basement. Neither one of us had been down there at all during the day.

What in the world? So my big brave husband says, “Sounds like your CD player and your exercise music. Go down and check it out.”


So my big brave husband says, “Sounds like your CD player and your exercise music. Go down and check it out.”

“What”, I say. “You mean you’re not coming?”


“It’s your CD player”, my big brave man says.

brave husband

“I’m not going down there myself”. Anyway, he finally got brave enough to follow downstairs and just as we figured, it was my CD player on full volume.

We figure what happened was the vibrations from the tree branches hitting the ground jarred the player somehow. But for some reason, it didn’t come on until later and that was because the player sits on a shelf directly above our underground pump and those vibrations somehow made it start to play.

As I said, I’ve never been afraid in this house, but had I been alone when that happened, I most certainly would’ve been.


But, are you wondering if I would have gone down there all on my own. Yep, I would’ve.

Even without my big brave man to help me. 😦

God bless and have a good day.

(PS. I told my husband I was “telling” on him. That’ll teach him.”


the New Year 2017

Yea! The New Year Begins

I have nothing important to say today. Busy taking down Christmas decorations and getting ready for a visit to the dentist. Nothing important but I hate going. Not because of pain or whatever but because my dentist is kind of a “character”. He’s a really good dentist but let’s just say he “fills the room’ with his personality.

So I always avoid striking up a conversation with him because he goes on forever. He’s very funny though and a really nice guy. But it just takes us too much time to listen to his stories.

Now my husband, however, likes listening to his stories but they’re all about hunting and fishing.

Me, I just want to get done and get on with my day.

But maybe that’s something I need to work on, huh? Maybe he needs to connect with his patients so maybe I should be a little more accommodating.

I have a lot of posts I’m working on but want to really “nail” this new series on how we grow and change so I’m doing a lot of research as well.

Plus I’m looking at new Word Press themes, but I keep coming back to this one. Here’s one thing I wish I knew how to do and that’s switch over from a Word Press hosted theme, the .com version, to a self-hosted type which is a .org format. But that means learning a lot of computer language and HTML Hey, do any of you know anything about this? Would love to get some encouragement because it seems overwhelming to me.

Also, I found a new web site “Quora”. You might want to check it out right here. It’s very interesting. People submit questions and then other people ask them. And who knows how honest the answers are but for the most part everyone seems sincere.

Well, off to my funny dentist.

God bless and have a really goo day.




week in review and another cabin guest

Monday’s post was a little unusual for me. I’ve been reading a lot about the brain. I shared with you how we even have memory in our fingers.


Tuesday I posted about my husband’s emergencies over the years. I shared my story just in case someone needed some encouragement.

Thursday, because of a medical issue I dealt with last week, I wrote a longer than usual post about how our health should be our business, first and foremost.

Friday I shared how we should never be limited by what the “authorities” suggest is our future based on statistics. We are never just a number. We are always more than what the statistics suggest.

This next week grandson number two, age seven, will be spending a week with us. You may not hear from me as much as I think I just might be busy.:)

When you hear the conversation I had last night,  I think you will understand how my week is going to go.

My daughter called me last night. “Uhm, mom, you might want to check his bag. He’s packed some unusual things.”

She went on, “Well, he’s packed an alarm clock for one thing and I have no idea why. But the crazy thing is, he’s packed a “dustbuster”.


“A dustbuster?”, I asked incredulously. “What in the world for?”

“Well, he said if he spilled something in the truck then he could vacuum it up.”

At this point I’m howling in laughter. I tell my husband and he joins in.

This is some funny kid. So I think you know how this next week is going to go.

By next weekend I’m going to be one exhausted woman. But what a way to go, huh?

God bless and I hope you have a good day.
