Thursday:) This Is My World

27 Apr

“Somedays you should just stay in your jammies under the covers, and not get out of bed. It’s safer there.”

~ Toni Armenta Andrukaitis


I’m sure you can all relate to information overload. Where did I leave my phone? I can’t find my phone! Oh, I’m talking on the phone. It’s against my ear. Duh!

The other day, I was taking the dog for a walk. I grabbed her leash, put my phone in my pocket and reached in the drawer for the house key. The phone rang, I answered, talked a couple of minutes, then out the door.

Oh, but wait! Where is my key? Back into the house. Retraced my steps. The dog is staring at me impatiently. I know it’s here somewhere. I keep the key on a rubber band and always put it on my right wrist. Nope! Not there. So, I did what all good Catholics do. Another urgent request to Saint Anthony.

I reached into the drawer again with both hands, rummaging through the rubble that I keep in there. Oops! It was on my left wrist all along. Thank you Saint Anthony. Glad you’re on speed dial.

This is my world. Too much information, too many distractions. Maybe just need to slow done a little. But… I love it.

Montage Monday: More Marvelous Sunsets and My Poem 

24 Aug

“Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under!” ― C. JoyBell C.


Instead my usual week in a peek, I wanted to continue the celebration of my  1 year anniversary of my new home and my new life. The amazing sunsets that I see every evening are just breathtaking. 

I’ve shared this poem before , but it’s one of my favorites. 

COME CHASE THE SUNSET                    



                    Come chase the sunset, come chase it with me

                    Fiery reds of the sky, tranquil blues of the sea.

                    Sizzles of summer, the softness of spring

                    With autumn upon us, winter’s chill on the wing.

                    Time is but fleeting, there’s only one chance

                    Shall we sit by the fire or get up and dance?

                    The journey is long, with burdens to bear

                    I never noticed, you carry more than your share.

                    Together let’s run and never look back

                    The clouds may be looming when the sky fades to black.

                    Just take my hand as the road rounds the bend

                    Run as fast as you can ‘til we get to the end.

                    Let’s race to the finish and shout out with glee

                   Come chase the sunset, come chase it with me.
