“Mothers are the fountain of creation”

Five days later, and it all seems surreal. Writing and sharing is healing for the soul.

Jim Butcher


Another week in Chicago, actually Elgin, but close enough. Another week of snow and cold and hibernating like a polar bear. The best part is the opportunity to hold Mom close like a polar bear.

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”

Robert Frost


Its funny. I was writing the title of my post today, Montage Monday, and I accidentally typed Momday. I deleted it and said to myself, “No, that’s perfect. I’m here visiting with Mom. So, it is a Momday. Cool!

Here’s a week in a peek.

“Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.”

~Earl Nightingale


Another week. This week didn’t have too much exciting to shout from the rooftops. But, like the quote says, “Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.”

~Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


A week in a peek, just trying to sneak in and freak me out till I shriek!!! Just sayin’.

The weeks go by too fast, but this past week saw a lovely wedding, lunches with friends, singing and dancing at the VFW, painting vases, talking to my granddaughter, and enjoying life…one day at a time.

“A photograph shouldn’t be just a picture, it should be a philosophy.”

Amit Kalantri


It was a good week and a bad week. Good part-I had a birthday. Bad part-I’m getting old. More good about that…I received a lot of calls, gifts, texts, and well wishes, flowers from my son, calls and FaceTime with my grand-baby. Good part- I baked several batches of brownies for different occasions this week. Bad part- I had to taste test a lot of brownies to make sure they were just right. Good part-I’m now a Medicare card carrying senior citizen. Bad part-again, I’m getting old. But, I’m just kidding. I don’t feel old, so you’re only as old as you feel. I feel pretty young, silly, and loved. I can get away with wearing the sock monkey hat, too.

I hope you had a good week, and have a great one coming up.

“Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”

~Elvis Presley
