Darla in Day by Day

I’ve known Darla for over 20 years. She struggles to survive. When I first met her and her husband, we bonded because they were from the Boston area and because their son was in the church nurser...

Putting This Here in Day by Day

Today’s drama: “I think Democrats committed fraud by buying up all the tickets.” I mean, where do I even start? Do I even want to? No. If that person is too dumb to not even know the definition o...


So, since we are locked into a “my country is better than yours” silliness, let me return tit for tat without further comment: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-05-19/coronavirus-covid-19-100-deat...


I am SO not supposed to be here, but how could I not at least make a comment? Doctor Trump is now advising that people should drink bleach and alcohol. I think his followers should try it and let...


Today marks 5 years that Nick has been absent from our lives. Every June 20th goes by without a birthday celebration. There are no calls and there never will be again. Just a deafening silence th...

I Should Be in Day by Day

I should be writing up a report on a young woman (we helped start her own food truck business), filling out Christmas cards, and putting up the tree, so that’s what I’m going to do, but just want...

Yeah, Yeah, I Know... in Day by Day

…I never call, I never write, it’s a wonder you still read! It may be a while before I write again. Mr. Laptop is freezing on me. It took all day to get online. Nothing but buffering. I knew it w...


We are having a lovely day here in Florida. A gentle breeze, humidity is low, the sun warms the skin, and the soft blue skies are dotted with cloud puffs. It will change in the wee hours of the m...


I’ll be offline this week and next. Not COMPLETELY offline, but not as interactive as much, as I begin to write a new grant. The focus this time is on women and children. Grant givers are much li...

Life Rolls On in Day by Day

Let’s get the unpleasantness out of the way first: I am NOT surprised that Trump would attack the Labor leaders on Labor Day. In fact, I fully expect him to criticize mothers on Mother’s Day. Aaa...


It’s quiet, for a Monday. The mail carrier never came today, so that reduces the workload, too. Not to mention that it’s always quiet toward the end of the month. We have a non-profit meeting la...


I’m writing a new grant and since its been a few months since I’ve run the numbers, I need to do a lot of tedious entries to compile the data and then turn it into statistics. I’m struggling to g...

Empty Lives in Day by Day

I’m now being accused of sending threatening messages to others on facebook. It is obviously a fake page. Before you accuse ME, post a picture of the screen page please. My facebook page is known...


I should be working on the agenda for tonight’s meeting. I should be preparing for the final budget class with my kids in the non-profit. I should be doing a dozen other things. Instead, I am tr...

Fallen Behind in Day by Day

Yes, yes, yes, I’m falling behind and feeling like the White Rabbit, checking her watch and trying to keep up. So much, so much and I don’t know where I left off and I’ve no time to go back and c...

Flowers! in Day by Day

We’re enjoying the color burst of blooming flowers these days, so I thought I’d share some photos with you. My husband grabbed the camera to get some shots of wild parakeets feeding on the black ...


Okay cuties, I’m over at OD under Mama Blue, but I don’t think I’ll bother. I went back a few times, looked around, and wasn’t overly impressed. I’ve enjoyed the experience. If you wish to connec...

Mondays! in Day by Day

It certainly is a Monday! I wanted to stay in bed a little longer this morning (cooler weather), but got up to get ready for my pedicure appointment, only to find out an hour later that the appoi...

Success! in Day by Day

The Festival on Saturday was a success. Our non-profit was in the VIP tent, which was at the entrance, so everyone had to pass us first (also the place where volunteers checked in), giving us lot...

Award Night in Day by Day

I’m to receive an award tonight at the inspirational conference held at our church. The speakers go around the country, inspiring women and honoring those who have overcome adversity and gone on ...

Went to the ER in Day by Day

I went to the ER tonight, along with half of my city. I have Flu A, but no pneumonia. They tripled the breathing machine meds and that made a huge difference (except it also gives me the shakes) ...


I am sick. AGAIN. I told my husband if he brought this horrid flu back into the house one more time, I’m divorcing him! This bout is the worst I’ve had. The congestion in my chest will not break ...

Appreciation in Day by Day

I’m busy, busy, busy with the non-profit. Next week is a fundraising workshop to learn how to qualify for extra prizes during the matching grant funds. End of year bookkeeping details are still b...

A Call to Action in Day by Day

To everyone living in the States, Flood the switchboard (202-225-3121) with calls today! The House is set to vote on the #GOPTaxScam today even though it lines the pockets of their donors and lea...

The Survey in Day by Day

Have you ever flown first class? Yes. Would you rather read books or magazines? I don’t have a preference. I just read. Have you ever seen a shooting star? Yes. I believe Nicholas is nearby when ...
