Pre-K is A-Okay!

Today was granddaughter Isabelle‘s first day of pre-K.

Isabelle’s expression … “I’m not so sure about this school thing.“

“Welcome to school, Isabelle. We’re SO glad you’re here.”
Hall-walking with big brother and sister, Matthew and Madison.

A great first day of school! So much to learn. So much to do.

Posted in The Liars Club: Donald Trump’s Assault on Truth and Democracy

The Liars Club: Truth Edition—The Cult of Trumpism

A blog category briefly showcasing the “my-goal-is-to-destroy-democracy” lies of the president of the Liars Club, Donald Trump and his blind and groveling cronies.

As you know (surely you know, right?), a delusional Donald Trump continues to push his 2020 anti-democracy, pro-autocracy election lies.

I am so thankful that there are Truth Tellers willing to call him out.

Such as SE Cupp …

It’s a three-minute difficult but truthful video exposition ….

(Give it a few seconds to get through a commercial and download.)

May the dangerous lies grow dimmer and dimmer.

Posted in Five Friday Happy Bringers

Five Friday Happy Bringers 8/5/22

1. Fresh South Georgia okra (my favorite summer vegetable—read more about that truth here) and corn. From Davis Produce not too far from us.

2. Grandtwins Madison and Matthew and their 10th birthday.

They are pure joy.

They each had their own cake.

3. Understanding that each new day, when we wake up, is a gift. A gift to be cherished.

4. Robert and a black cat.

This is “Little Kitty,” my daughter Amy and son-in-law Scott’s cat. We took care of him when Amy and fam (big fam) were down at Universal Studios.

5. My little closet. It’s just mine.

And it reveals how I am a clothing minimalist (Do you really need more than about 30 items of clothing?) Actually I am an everything minimalist. But more about that later.

I hope your upcoming weekend is met with joy, good health, and wonder.

The Car’s Blessing

So HR and i were driving home from T.J. Maxx a little while ago, after shopping for a new Gratitude Journal for me …

I’m not sure what the “A” stands for, but it was only $2.99.

Robert‘s attitude, when I found the little journal, indicated that he thought it was kind of too tiny for a journal and sort of sissy-ish. I took that as a great compliment and immediately purchased it.

But that’s all off the subject. So we were driving home, stopped at a red light and saw this …

Wait. Let me get a little closer.

A little bit closer.

Isn’t that gloriously cool?

A blessing from the car in front of us!

I receive it!

And pass it on to you. So look for the good!
