I am Me ⋅ 59

My husband and I are empty-nesters (finally! yaaaay!!), nearly sixty years old, and both of us work for our state's public school system. We live in the countryside in a rather humble little home with our dog, a sweet-natured chocolate Lab named Guinness. We are Wiccan and members of a large esoteric tradition called The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel. Much of our lives are filled with going to spiritual events; much is also filled by spending time with our family, and enjoying the outdoors.

In my last entry I wrote about how my sister Carol and I had had words, and I had blabbed something that was very true, but that she did not want to hear. Years ago, I would have run and just ke...

Bringing Happy. in A New Beginning

Our chocolate Lab, Guinness, is my best buddy. I never thought I would love and feel for an animal the way I’ve come to love and feel for him. When I was growing up, my Dad did not want pets in...


I had an appointment with my orthopedist, Dr. Barrish, this morning. I just wanted to check in with him! I hadn’t seen him in about ten months, because there wasn’t really any need, with me goi...

Cold Water! :o) in A New Beginning

I got into our pool (nothin’ fancy, just one of those blue ones) yesterday evening for the first time this season. I had been prepared to just about freeze my ass off, but ya know what? It didn’...


My sister Carol is feeling much more like herself again. I went over to visit this morning and her daughter/my niece Stef was there too. We did a lot of light-hearted talking and reminiscing an...

For five or six days, I have been rubbing my eye because it’s been driving me batty. Itch and water, water and itch. Rubbing it doesn’t help, but this really just dawned on me today. Good Lord!...


Thursday evening we got back from our vacation. We had such a fabulous time!! In a way, I wish we had stayed a few days longer, but ya know, sometimes (oftentimes!) when you hit a peak of “FABUL...


Stubbornness is a serious flaw that seems to run in my family of birth. Maybe stubbornness isn’t precise enough a term for it though. PRIDE AND STUBBORNNESS. Yep, those two seem to go together....


There is nothing that interests me more than people do. And I love people. But boy, sometimes people just astound me with the un-thinking or un-feeling things that they do. Now the kids at sch...

I am soooooooo thankful to finally have this three-day weekend! OBLIGATION-FREE, at that!! Or I could say, obligated to no one but ourselves! Because I think everyone is obligated to his-own-self...


As those of you who have been my friends for years know, I am Wiccan and belong to a Western Magickal Tradition called The Assembly of the Sacred Wheel, which currently is comprised of thirteen c...


I get hardly any notes here compared to when I wrote on Open Diary or compared to my posts on Facebook. But I value the few friends I do have here, and not getting many notes doesn’t bother me li...


I haven’t written all week, so I ought to have some news. Oddly enough, I really don’t have much though! :o) The reason I haven’t had time to write here is that I’ve been honoring my Mom by putti...


After today we are supposed to get three days of rain. At least that’s what the forecast forecasts! I hope we get a lot of it, because we need it. I like green meadows and fields! Not poor dry ...
