Longing for Simplicity

Maybe I’m not a blogger after all. I think I get distracted too easily. In the length of time it has taken me to write those first two sentences, I have jumped out of my seat twice and run to the windows because for several days I have been hearing a noise that sounds like it could be a cat. Or maybe a bird. The trees are so thick with… Read Article →

CBD and Pain Relief — How it Helps My Osteoarthritis

I had a revelation this morning. Since I am a fairly shallow person, most of you are not likely to see this as mind-blowing information but I’m going to share it anyhow because maybe it will help someone. In December 2018, I found out that I have osteoarthritis and as soon as I shared that little piece of information I started to receive advice from people with similar issues. One… Read Article →

Dear Tylenol, I’m back but I’m not sticking around.

  Dear Tylenol, I’m back but I’m not sticking around. This will just be a short visit, I’m sure, and then I’ll be on my way. By the way, I never thanked you for the last time you helped me out. I really appreciate you letting me stay for those couple of weeks when Osteoarthritis was giving me a hard time. I don’t know what I would have done without… Read Article →

How to Live a Laptop Lifestyle

It’It is going to be a beautiful day and I’m looking forward to doing the things that I’m planning to do.” A wise sister once told me, “We cannot always control our circumstances but we can control our attitude about… Read Article →

How to Deal with Osteoarthritis Pain – Some Helpful Tips

I’m in my fourth month since I found out that the unexplainable aches and pains throughout my body are partly due to osteoarthritis. The grieving process kicked in as soon as I heard the news. I have been through all five steps, and most of them more than once: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Denial dominated my thinking for three years before I finally went to the doctor. Depression… Read Article →

Idea for Starting a Home Business

I have never been a big fan of thrift stores but one year my son was helping with props at a local theater company and we spent the better part of three months running in and out of thrift stores looking for unique items to be used in an upcoming production. As he searched for items on his list, I wandered around and sometimes ended up talking to people while… Read Article →
