These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Sunny Sunday

Yesterday .... actually the night before .... it snowed about three inches. It was bitterly cold yesterday with the high reaching only 26°. The sun came out, and the afternoon was gorgeous, in spite of the cold, and most of the snow melted off, even at that temperature.

Today, the sun is bright and the sky is beautifully blue. Icicles are melting, loosening, and literally crashing down. The temperature is headed for mid 50s. It's not there yet, but in a couple hours, I hope to be able to get outside and stretch my legs with the dogs. That will be good for all of us. Lolita has become a little butterball over the winter, although I can't figure out quite how. She is very active, and while I guess she does overeat, I don't think it is much. Maybe she has a stash hidden away somewhere??? Obviously it's not enough of one and too much of the other. I'm a butterball, too, but I know why. And I also need more and less!

I went out a few minutes ago to loosen my flag from the gutter. It blows up there some times, and it gets caught on a rough spot of the gutter or perhaps a small nail. I began to flip it loose, and it took more than a flip as usual. If you take a peek at the photo on the right, you see why it was hard to get out .... that dirty white bar of ice was completely frozen in the gutter! I wonder how long it will take to melt that big bugger!

I just watched Blood Diamond. Why in the world does Leonardo DiCaprio always have to die?! sniff. He's such a cutie, even if he is younger than my baby! Does that make me a dirty old lady? Probably.

My ick from yesterday is gone. It took all day, lots of tummy medicine and resting, but it is gone. After the nausea was gone I had the most horrible acid I've had in a long, long time. Everything I ate turned to acid, even though I avoided foods that tend to be acidic. Finally, with the help of a handful of Tums and a bowl of homemade chicken soup, I was able to go to bed and had a good night's sleep.

On top of all that, my fibromyalgia kicked up in the afternoon. I have not had a significant bout of that in a long time, a couple years, I think. I'm surely hoping that it is short lived. Getting exercise will help me, so going out walking will be good for the dogs, my weight, and the fibromyalgia. Three bagger!

All that aside, nothing can be too bad when the sky is as beautiful as it is today. Nothing!


  1. I am so glad to hear that you are feeling better and I hope that you continue to improve. This week should warm up for you and for me too;). Enjoy your day and your doggies!

  2. Thanks, Moni! I'm looking forward to the week!

  3. Re: Leonardo:
    I can't say whether or not you are a dirty old lady, but nothing wrong with appreciating beauty when you see it. I'm sure there is an appropriate quote out there about "look, don't touch"!

  4. Dakota, you're right! LOL! I find beauty in many places, and I usually enjoy it for what it is.

  5. Wow I knew I would miss a few posts,been busy and was feeling sick myself. Alls good now though and I'm glad to here that you are doing better too Lyn! I love Leo too and haven't heard of this movie. Is it any good? I think he's a wonderful actor. I hope your weather warmed up and is staying warm!
    Love Di ♥
