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.

Beachin'! in A New Beginning

This morning my sister Sandy and I are going to hit the beach! :o) It is only supposed to be in the 60s today, so we aren’t planning to sunbathe though. We are gonna walk the boardwalk, maybe wal...


It is hard for me to tell people “exactly what I think of them” when what I am thinking of them is not good. I have to be extremely angry in order to do it, and I rarely get that angry. I don’t...

Hookie! :oD !! in A New Beginning

Today I took a sick-of-it day from work. It’s just my third day I’ve taken this year and I have nine left, so I said GO FOR IT. The past week-and-a-half was darn tiring, working overtime every ...


On Saturday, Joe and I were gone all day, to an event up in Springfield, PA called Spring Magick. We took our NAL fundraising store there. It was a day of classes and workshops and rituals, culm...


So, these next two weeks our manager, Sophia, is out at work. She’s having a small malignant breast lump removed. Her doctor feels sure he’ll be able to get it all, but I bet she is still worri...


I’ve already mentioned that my sister Sandy gifted her 2005 Subaru to Joey, when she purchased her brand-new Subaru. Joe convinced Joey to bring his old VW Passat over here, where we will put it...


Yesterday was so warm, sunny, and beautiful! First thing Joe and I did was go to Bargain Bill’s flea market. The main thing he was looking for was a mermaid, because he has to bring a decoration...


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...


We returned home yesterday from our wonderful five-day adventure a few hours from home at the Sacred Space Conference near Baltimore. It was so much fun....just as I’d been hoping it would be!! ...


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 ...
