It's a Big Sunny Day

Here I am, once again, sitting at my keyboard trying to post an interesting blog.  Interesting ain't gonna happen folks.  The biggest, most exciting thing I can report is that the sun is shinning and neither snow nor ice is falling.

I've been out of the loop for several days - or weeks - not because anything is wrong.  Everyone is well and enjoying our various everyday routines.  We are all waiting for spring to finally spring.  It will be a welcome transition.

We did have a very welcome visit with my favorite nephew, Ricky.  He wasn't able to stay very long but we were just happy for the time he could spend with us.  Ricky, welcome back anytime.

Both karate warriors, James and Jesse, advanced one belt during the most recent testing.  Jesse is now a green belt and James earned his orange.  Not very high but still an accomplishment. 

I do have something to share with everyone - please pass it on if you know anyone who might benefit from the info.  If anyone you know is taking the cancer preventative drug, Femera, please tell them to visit the website (  There is a coupon that offers up to $800 per year towards prescription payments for Femera.  If you have private insurance that covers some of the cost, Femera will apply benefits to your co-pay.  My 90 day prescription would be over $1400 if I had no insurance.  My insurance and the support offered by Femera certainly makes this therapy possible.  I hope this info helps someone - or many - in the battle to stay cancer free. 

I wish I had the energy to pull together a garage sale.  Fat chance!!!  My best bet would be to open the front door and say, "Come on in and make me an offer."  I've given a few of my needle work pieces to special folks - kids, relatives, and special people in my life - but it hardly made a dent in the "stuff" in this house.  I have three complete sets of fine china and have no use for one. I've always enjoyed having folks in for whatever meal time it happened to be.  The difference is now everything is strictly informal and very casual.  Craigslist, here I come.

Time to get something done here.  Until next time, take care.

Hi Mary, Glad things are going well for you. :-)

Oh Mary - your email was so awesome, you do make me laugh. I will reciprocate, although I have to confess I am not the greatest at timely answers, so bear with me.

In the meantime, I have to say that your life sounds quiet and calm and bright and sunny, and that makes me smile.

Big hugs. Lots of love. :)

I was going to take some nicer clothing to the consignment shop, but after reading the agreement I decided to bundle the clothes up and take them to Goodwill. Rather than making a couple trips to and from the shop, I made one trip to donate the clothing. I'm getting lazy in my old age.
