This morning as I'm having my coffee and reading blogs, news and just generally checking in with the world I came across this article about Valentines Day.  Nothing says I love you more then naming a Madagascar hissing cockroach after your loved one...what, have got to be kidding me.  First let me say, eeeeeeeewwwwwwww, and second, I'm thinking it's not such a good idea.  Who in the world comes up with these ideas, are there are bunch of people sitting around a table and someone pipes up with.."hey you know how we can raise some money".   

So...what are you getting your sweetheart for Valentines Day?  
naming rights for a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach

until next time...
Be Kind...


  1. Not in the EEEWWWW catagory, but I'm always amazed at the radio ad that resurrects itself every year before Christmas and Valentine's Day. You know, the one about naming a star for someone? Why in the name of God would I ever want a star named after me? Give me fabric any day!

  2. All I wanted this year was for my husband to make it through surgery fine, and have everything come out great from it and have him home. I got everything I wanted!!!

  3. I got my Valentines gift this morning*

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind


Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
