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.

What a sorely trying, taxing, and frustrating day this was at work! It got to the point, during Second Lunch, when my language expression was reduced to “oh my Lord,” and by Third Lunch all I cou...


February felt like Springtime down here. We had some 70 degree days and flower trees were in full blossom! It was hard to believe this was happening in February! Then March arrived and it got ...


After a week, I am still not caught up on rest or sleep after our five-day trip to Sacred Space Conference!! But why would I be???? We got home on Sunday night and I went to work early Monday mo...

Yesterday my sister Sandy and I went to the Dover Mall cinema to see “The Shack.” It was the first time in twenty or more years either of us had been to see a movie at the actual MOVIES! We both ...


Well, we found out what the surprise Joey and Stephanie have is, and I’m really happy to say that it’s neither a baby nor a wedding just yet! It’s a new car for Stephanie. ;o) She really needed...

Hot and Cold! in A New Beginning

Wow, until a couple days ago, it was so warm that I was actually, in February, coming home from work and turning the AC on! Everyone’s spring flowers are opened up, and even some of the flowerin...

Really Glad! in A New Beginning

I don’t remember how long it’s been since I resumed writing here after a couple years of not doing so. But I am really glad I took it up again. :o) I only follow a few people, but I enjoy that an...


So, our chocolate Lab Guinness has got some kind of ear affliction again, apparently, because he is constantly shaking his head and flapping his ears, which makes a loud clapping sound like sheet...

New Lives! in A New Beginning

I talk on the phone with my sister Carol almost every day. Today I told her that I was proud of her for the way she is living her life, and said that if I get to be her age (she’s 75), I hope I ...

Beading! :oO !! in A New Beginning

I am not the most physically coordinated person in the world, ok? I do alright at “big” movements, but, like, manual dexterity is really not my forte. Specifically, I don’t have a lot of hand/e...

Compliments! in A New Beginning

I love giving people compliments and in general, saying things that uplift people. I never give false compliments, and I’ll tell you why....ya don’t have to! If you reeeeeally LOOK at people, yo...


Gee whiz! It has been so windy here that even though the temperature has been in the 40s or even 50 most days, it has just felt bitterly cold! Now, I’m not really complaining, just stating a fact...


This morning Joe and I went to the medical center for me to get my injection. Consequently I once again feel like a normal, happy human being instead of the limping, snarling, cursing beast I ha...

We the Feebles... in A New Beginning

Joe coined a word for those aging souls who, like us, have their aches, pains, “senior moments,” etc. He calls us Feebles. I like it; it makes me grin. :o) Ya know, in spite of the problems tha...

Wimp. in A New Beginning

So now I feel like a wimp. I called in sick today, because dammit, I just had a miserable night with this pain. I was up at 10:30, got up from 11:30-1:30, got up again around 3:30....I am just f...


That Super Bowl game sure was somethin’ last night! The Pats were down 28-3 at half-time and my three Pats fans here were just sitting in the living room with long faces. I am not into watching ...

Hungry!!!!! in A New Beginning

Today Joe has gone waaaaaaay up north to a book study with his coven. The kids are coming over this evening to watch The Super Bowl, and he’ll be home by then too. I’m just making a hot dog smo...


I sure am glad I moved up the date of my spinal injection from March 3rd to February 20th. Joe seems to worry about me getting too many of them or something, but Dr. Sutherland said I can get fo...


Delaware is a sissy kind of place in the wintertime. Our weather station calls for a “Severe Weather Alert!” when all we’re supposed to get is one to two inches of snow! But we did, at least, h...

I am doing it! :oD in A New Beginning

HA! I wonder if I am the only person who was ever excited about buying a cane, not to be part of a costume or anything but to actually USE?? I have been browsing “wooden canes” on eBay for the pa...


Wednesday after Joe’s after-work nap, we drove up to Dover to go to the crafts store and get some stuff Joe needed for a project he was making for his coven’s Imbolc ritual. It had been a Killer...


Damn, this is a cold house. But this is a First World Problem. It’s not cold because we have no heat. It’s cold because a miser lives here, who never wants to turn the heat up. And the miser is ...


I no sooner sent a letter to Annie (my former High Priestess) indicating that I want to return to the coven, than I began mentally kicking myself in the ass for doing so. ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHH...


This was a very good, very full day. After several nights of not sleeping well (unusual for me, but it occasionally happens) because of both arms wanting to fall asleep if I laid on this side or...
