TIME PASSING and a sip of wine

It’s late, and, as usual, I can’t sleep.  So, my thoughts jump in and realizations appear.  Odd thing, aging.  It plays with your mind and things you never thought about before begin to enter.  Tonight my thoughts are the sad realization that if I live as long as my mother, I have about ten years […]

Jazz, Wine, Thoughts

Is there anything better than an evening listening to smooth jazz? I find listening to KennyG, Nat King Cole, Sade, Paul Taylor and others brings a comforting mellowness to my mood. I am relaxed and able to block the turmoil of my country out for awhile. Sipping Pinot Noir also helps erase the tension I […]

Wine,Turmoil, Racism

I’m on my patio this evening well past the time when most folks are in bed. I’ve been thinking about my peaceful life, while listening to the vehicles on the nearby highway droning like a million bees interfering in my solitary thoughts. While the droning is ongoing, my mind causes the insistent sound to be […]

War, Fear, Anger

This evening I watched the annual Memorial Day Concert on TV. It was not the usual format I have watched over the years because Covid has changed the way we live now-a-days. There were excerpts from past years, and new well wishes and thank yous to those who are the new “heroes” of today. Our […]

Birds, Behavior, and Wine

What a gorgeous day to simply do nothing. I mused over how dramatic the sky looked today, as dark clouds moved quickly overhead, and then disappeared just as quickly. I cannot sit in the sun because I have had skin cancer bouts a few times and I need to avoid sun rays. However, my patio […]

Weather, Horses, Wine

I wonder how many people are complaining about the weather? May is presenting us with weather that we should have enjoyed in December. It’s cold, windy, gloomy, and not suitable for outdoor activities. Which made it very uncomfortable at the barn this morning. Chuck and I met the horse chiropractor early today. (At least it […]

My Thoughts, and Evening Wine.

I’ve read a number of thoughts from folks who agree with my own opinions, that it’s kind of early to return to normal behavior since Covid is still attacking us, and thus, we are still at war. I have also read thoughts from those who totally disagree with me and think we’d better get back […]

Water, Wine and Patios

At this moment I am sitting on a metal and mesh chair on my patio. The bird feeder is about 20 feet away and I am enjoying viewing the gold finches, chickadees and mourning doves. Soon the cardinals with their brilliant red feathers will visit my feeder, along with the Downey woodpecker that likes my […]
