Under Construction

Remember me? I’m back! I took a three-year pause from blogging after my husband died. Now, I’m back and want to blog about fun things. After the rough three years when I dealt with my husband’s passing, then Covid, and all the stuff that comes with that, I thought it was time for something uplifting.

I want this blog to be someplace people go for smiles, laughter, and good vibes. To my readers who are still following, thank you for sticking with me! For new readers, welcome! I hope you will enjoy the blog and smile and have fun.

To the friends that have convinced me to start my blog up again, thank you! I love you guys!

For a little bit, you will probably come across some funky stuff as I work on the blog and relearn how to do things on WordPress. It’s been a while. There will be a few changes, some parts of the blog will go away while I add other parts.

Also, the name of the blog will be changing! I’m naming it: Life, Love & Strength.

So go on! Enjoy yourselves!

The 15 Questions Tag

Hello people!

I know I haven’t shown up for a while with a new post. Although I’ve been busy. I do have a couple of things I have been working on, but they aren’t ready to be posted yet. One is another chapter to my story ‘The Man in the Fedora’. So stay tuned!

For now, I am stealing an idea from Mer over at Knocked Over by a Feather. She of course got it from someone else. It seems to be the go to post for us that have nothing otherwise for today. 😉

We answer 15 questions. I thought the questions were pretty good ones. So here we go!



What do you think you can do but can’t?

Well, I had to think about this one. Is it a trick question? LOL

I think I can do what I could do 20 years ago, but I can’t. I’m not as young, agile or have the want to that I had back then. Damn, it’s hard getting old. Some days I find just getting out of bed a trial. (By the way, my new mattress is oh so comfy! I had to get used to it! Isn’t that funny?)

What’s a difficult word for you to pronounce?

I find that I have become adept at using different words that I CAN pronounce. There are words that seem to get me every time. Like, cacophony, I never get that right! Or, entrepreneurship. I still can’t say it right the first time.

What are your favorite TV shows from your childhood?

The memories come sweeping back. Let’s see, The A Team, Twilight Zone, Taxi, The Carol Burnett Show, Kung Fu, just to name a few.

What are your virtues and vices?

Virtues; honesty, loyalty, trustworthy.

Vices; my temper, sarcastic, sometimes I’m a bit of a nitpick. oh, and I also like to play devil’s advocate.

What’s more important: love, fame, power, or money?

Love is more important, but I wouldn’t mind having some money for a change, you know, just to see what it’s like.

If you could live in any era/time period, when would it be and why?

Mer said the 60’s and I kind of agree. I also always wanted to try the 20’s, before the depression. Seemed like a fun time to be in. Think of flappers and a more innocent time.

If you had to redo your entire wardrobe with 2 stores, what would they be and why?

Well, this one was hard because I hate to shop, especially clothes. So I had to really think about it. I do know of an online store I love called OneStopPlus. I have found things to wear that actually fit a vertically challenged person such as myself! I can order pants that I don’t have to hem! Plus their t-shirts come long, just like I love them. They are reasonably priced even with shipping and they have a wide assortment of things to choose from. The other store would probably be a thrift store.

Can you recall what you were doing a year ago on this day?

More than likely just what I am doing today. Blogging, taking care of my disabled husband and assorted critters.

Do you have reoccurring dreams? If so, explain?

I do have a few recurring dreams. The first one is that I win the lottery. I have been having this dream for the last 5 years or so. At least once a week I have that dream, I win about 5 million and my family is on the phone wanting part of it and I tell them to kiss my butt. LOL I know sounds terrible, but only if you didn’t know my family.

Another one is I am talking to my Dad. He passed about 11-12 years ago. We are having a conversation. The conversations are usually about fate, our ability to change, and various other topics. I always feel so close to him with these dreams. It’s a nice feeling.

What’s your horoscope?

I’m a Virgo with Leo tendencies. Roar! LOL

Virgo Horoscope for February 19 2015: Family gives you a sense of structure and permanence. Turn to your relatives if you are feeling restless. Are you estranged from your kin? Create a support network consisting of friends, neighbors, and colleagues. Everybody should belong to a tribe. When they don’t, feelings of vulnerability can be overwhelming. Fortunately, you have many fine qualities that people admire. Your wit, intelligence and practicality will make you a valued member of a distinguished community.

What does your dream bedroom look like?

This is what it would look like! Perfect!



What position do you sleep in?

I’m a side sleeper. Lately though I have caught myself sleeping on my back. Never did before. As long as I sleep, who cares!

What are your all-time favorite films?

For me this is a tough one as I don’t watch movies very often. Hardly never, in fact. But, a couple of movies I saw years ago comes to mind.

A Christmas Carol with George C Scott

Anything with Jackie Chan, not because he has a great name (even though he does). Because he’s funny and I love to watch his fight scenes.

What makeup are you currently wearing?

None. Haven’t since I had a job outside the home. Au Natural baby!

Do you have neat handwriting? Show us!

Not sure if it’s neat or not. But, it’s mine!



And so that concludes this week’s questions and answers! If you want to do this, please feel free to do so!
