I thought I saw....

a piece of nana in my children.  How many times have been looked at our children and/or grandchildren and see something they do or say that reminds you of an earlier generation?  Is it coincidence ? a sign? or something "higher" that is telling us we continue to live in each other.



When my children were first walking (many years ago) it surprised me that sometimes they actually stood up with their hands behind their back.....


A trait my grandmother always had.....and this freaked me out - seeing it in my children.....I still feel it was  a little bit of her handed down into their generation......and thus we continue the chain.  We continue down the line with grandchildren - who love to watch wrestling..because that is what their great grandfather used to do.

There is a little piece of all of us that gets handed down through the generations.

Big Little Lies......a review

Big Little LiesBig Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I love the way the book starts off and banters back and forth between what led up to trivia night. Because we all know someone died - got killed - on trivia night but dont know who. So each step of the way brings us closer while we get to know the characters, their lives and their secrets. Jane brings it all together when we find out the biggest secret toward the end.

Look into each family's life, their children, their school life and their hopes. A must read book for anyone who loves secrets.

Shredder.....

Well, that was exhausting.  There comes a time in our daily doings that time must be devoted to shredding.  It is not that hard nor is it something I hate (like cleaning bathrooms).  But it must be done and done it is.....for now.


So up I went to the computer room and sifted through the many papers - some dating back several years (why do we save everything?) and shredded my day away.  That was only what was visible.  Now there are also file cabinet drawers that need to be done....so I can make room for more important papers.....that will need to be shredded eventually.......

Whoops....

I was so looking forward to it....7 day vacation cruise to the Bahamas.  So we booked it several months ago, and I started a countdown.  Went to the store, bought items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, pill boxes, new underwear...this was going to be a stress-less vacation....sunny Bahamas...rest and relaxation..and then....



It started with clouds, then rain...and continued for a few days - preventing us from going on deck near the pool and outdoor BBQ....

We were on board, still had a good time even though trip was a little rocky ... arriving in

the Bahamas...we ventured off the ship...........and alas, whoops....got caught in a downpour.  So we DANCED in the rain......
