Simple Satisfaction

My house needs a bit of work, repainting, repairs, etc., but it’s cozy. After the winter I repotted my four Geranium plants into two big pots, and they are doing so much better now. It makes me really happy to open my front door and see the fullness of the deep green leaves and pink blooms.…

Earth Day 2016 – Gratitude and Apology

One of my favorite days of the year simply because our Earth deserves public recognition and celebration. The first time I celebrated Earth Day was in 1970 with my friends, on the side of a garbage strewn road, picking up trash.

Paper Hell – Save the Trees!

I just feel like ranting. I’m facing mounds of paper that need to be organized and I hate it. Bills, notices, and don’t get me started on the medical paperwork connected to Obamacare. I Love Trees! I just went out and bought another box of file folders to organize all this paper and it made…
