Time for Truth or Dare


I have a great love for the stars.

I love sitting out at night- especially the nights that I do not happen to have to fight the mosquitoes- and star gaze.

I can find the North Star.

I can find The Big Dipper and The Little Dipper.

I can find the planets Venus and Mars.

I have even spied Mercury.

But…. I have to use binoculars.

Granted, they are a nice pair of binoculars…..

But I own a telescope and I have no idea how to focus it. My knowledge is so limited about its use that it is a dust collector.

SPACE SCHOOL: Living on Mars



One of my favorite classes this year is my new offering to the CSI Mentoring Clubs: Space School.

We are having a blast beginning to learn of the possibilities of achieving a colony of citizens on the planet Mars, and would we like to become a few of the original inhabitants.

No-Pamper Plants



Once again… Great intentions….

Once again… My garden needs a makeover!

I need plants- I would prefer flowering plants- that need NO PAMPERING!

Here is a list of plants that I might try next year:

  • Sunflowers
  • Zinnias
  • Marigolds
  • Pansies
  • Impatiens
  • Snapdragons
  • Daffodils
  • Begonias
  • Cosmos
  • Geraniums
  • Morning Glories
  • Blanket Flowers
  • Daylilies (I have a few)

A few I have tried, but frustration set in from the chaos of life.

These came highly recommended as plants that can take care of themselves???

Maybe next year?

Music Is Never Irrelevant

Turning Over a New Leaf

Turning Over a New Leaf



This is the second weekend in a row that I have successfully sat in front of my computer to write.

I do not- or cannot- or will not- at least so far, I have not- been able to find the time in the evenings to write.

At least a very small time slot is beginning to emerge in my schedule for habitual writing.

I know…

Everyone has the same number of hours in a day.

I know…

People find the time for the things that they teem important.

I also know, habits are hard to break!

So therefore, I am giving myself a blue ribbon for my triumphant return to my writer’s corner!

It takes time to turn over a new leaf.

  • What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?
  • What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)
  • List at least five favorite flowers or plants.
  • What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.


What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

I am probably a ‘blue’ fellow. If I had my druthers, I would probably live my life in light blue t-shirts and dark denim jeans.

So, I became curious and googled what desiring to wear blues most of the time might mean:

LIGHT BLUE is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding, and softness.

DARK BLUE represents knowledge, power, integrity, and seriousness.

Yep! I nailed it! That’s exactly me!!!

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie)

I would be an egregious pet owner not to say a coal, black Shih Tzu.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.

  • Roses
  • Irises
  • Lilacs
  • Peonies
  • Ferns

What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

“Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail.”  Kinky Friedman (American songwriter and satirist)
