Blogmas Day 22: Viewing Christmas Decorations

One of the things I enjoy most about the Christmas season is checking out the Christmas displays in different neighborhoods. While Andy and I were in South Jersey today, we took some time to view Christmas lights/decorations. Since I’m a huge Snoopy fan, we went searching for homes with Snoopy/Peanuts displays. We managed to locateContinue reading “Blogmas Day 22: Viewing Christmas Decorations”

December 15, 2018: Birthday Outings, and Wildwood Memories

Some thoughts as I relax on Saturday morning: Today is my friend Carmen’s birthday. I hope she’ll have a nice day to herself in Puerto Rico.

It’s such an unseasonable day.Continue reading “December 15, 2018: Birthday Outings, and Wildwood Memories”

The beginning of December is always bittersweet. My mom would have been 66 on this day, yet she is no longer with me.

Mom would always take things in stride, and IContinue reading “December 1, 2018: Remembering Her Birthday”

I’m writing this a couple hours after I intended to, but it’s okay. I had a well-deserved rest after heading to the lab this morning. It’s kinda rough getting up early on a Saturday, but it’s also nice that this lab has hours that accomodate my work schedule. So early Saturday appointment it is. ItContinue reading “November 24, 2018: Rest After Tasks/Jersey Gardens”
