Where the magic happens…or maybe not…

Today the element of magic has been eluding me all day.  This is the corner of my residence where my neurons meet the keyboard and the brewing of words takes place on a daily basis. It is a very special corner.  I feel I am surrounded by the muses that maybe have been knocking on myContinue reading “Where the magic happens…or maybe not…”

Another visitor from out of town…entertaining is my new way of life…

It has happened again…the pleasure of an unexpected visitor. What do you think it is…the water or just the alluring Florida name.  This time is my baby sister.  I am nine years older than she is and she is visiting from the Dominican Republic.  Do we have a lot to catch up.  And in Spanish! ButContinue reading “Another visitor from out of town…entertaining is my new way of life…”

And she walked…Going from my sixties into my nineties…

Yesterday was a day of venturing out…I walked around where I reside.  Kind of apprehensive, because I was by myself, no walking partner and no stick to keep intruders away from me. Went out before even having breakfast, to get it over with.  Nice going…taking a picture here and another one there… The gardens areContinue reading “And she walked…Going from my sixties into my nineties…”

The business of trying to be a vegan…and my first French class…

This is harder than I had envisioned.  I forgot…there is no vegan fast food…it is either you cook it or is back to eating unwanted hormones, fat and all kinds of other unmentionable stuff. The good thing is that when I cook, it lasts for at least three days…that’s the same thing that is notContinue reading “The business of trying to be a vegan…and my first French class…”

Parlez-vous le Francais? Do you speak French…Habla Frances…

I am going back to school…to continue learning one of my favorite languages…French! This subject matter is on my list of things to do…five languages before I evaporate into energy.  Spanish, English, French, Italian and Portuguese.  I am on two and a half…same amount to go. As Martha Stewart once said “When I am through learning, IContinue reading “Parlez-vous le Francais? Do you speak French…Habla Frances…”

My new adventure…eating healthier…

This is a sampling of my intent to get my act a bit cleaner of what I ingest.  Been reading books, just finished watching “Food, Inc.” and I have the best of intentions to follow through with eating the best I can eat.  I don’t want to be incinerated at such a terrible young age. Continue reading “My new adventure…eating healthier…”

The hiccups and a blank canvas in my mind…

Today has been a day of driving and more driving.  Raining and more raining.  Hmmm…and the worst part is that right now at 9:45 p.m. I have absolutely nothing in my mind to write about. Went to visit a friend of the past and talked and talked.  She is 86.  She introduced me to her friends. Continue reading “The hiccups and a blank canvas in my mind…”

My life in perspective…

Recently, I was watching a television show profiling some celebrities and their homes.  Of course, their homes are very impressive and very individualistic, according to their personalities.  You sometimes can see that some of their homes are an extension of their persona, and some of them were just put together by their decorator and areContinue reading “My life in perspective…”
