Things that make me smile and I'm moving!

Nature. I love sunrises and sunsets. They are a magical time of day. They always make me grateful to be alive. I always am thankful for the show.
Spending quality time with my family. It doesn't happen enough. Both kids are off doing their own thing. I love it when we can be together.

My husband, Jack loves a little nap now and then. While he is napping, he always covers his face with his ball cap. There's always a beer at hand should he need a refreshing sip. A guy gets thirsty during those power naps. ;D
Our daughter, Alex lounging on the hammock but she's still texting on her blasted phone. It's never far from reach. She only texts on it pretty much. Who needs to talk when you can type and read at the speed of light. Handwritten letters only go out when there is a thank you note, other than that it's texting with her. No facebook, no emails, no phone calls. Keeps life simple that way.
My Dog Chance. He is a precious little fella. He is 10-1/2 years now and still plays like a puppy. He gets excited sometimes when I come home and does 2 laps around the house and then jumps up on the couch out of breath. ;D He is a lover. Loves to be held, loves to lay on or near you and is so easy going. I think it is from growing up with my daughter who used to put him in her veterinarian case, opened and doctor him up. lol I have photos. Too cute. Plus she always held him belly up like a baby. He is my shadow.

So I got a job in Charleston, SC and I move on the 20th. Yikes! I was just offered the job this past Thursday and I start on the 23rd. I have been packing up a storm and cleaning and trying to stage the house. Are any of you in Charleston, SC or near so we can finally meet? I would love to meet some bloggers on an occasional basis. Maybe do some art, lunch, drinks, dinner, I don't know but it would be fun!



  1. Your daughter sounds like mine. I can't recall the last time I saw her without her phone. Whenever she comes over it doesn't stop and she has to stop mid conversation to respond to her texts.
    congrats on the new job, sounds exciting. I wish I did live in SC, meeting some of the blogging pals does sound like fun

  2. Oh, I think living in Charleston SC sounds like heaven! All that southern charm and close to the ocean too! I'm envious! But wait, you can't leave PA, we haven't had our get together yet! I know you met with Sharon, have you and Lisa had a chance to meet? At any rate, good luck with your new venture, and at least it is easy to keep in touch via blogging!

  3. Hi Maggie. No I have not gotten to meet up with Lisa. I wish there were more time, but life's a little hectic right now, as you can imagine. I am packing and cleaning like an insane woman. lol
