I spent the majority of 2018 trying to keep a calendar and other notes, shopping
lists, birthdays, etc. on my cell phone.
While there are many advantages to doing it that way,
I've decided to return to a more familiar format.
I was really excited to find this beauty at our local Walmart!
The format is familiar--
one I've used several years in a row.
It fits easily into my purse.
I spent some time last evening recording birthdays
and look forward to a productive year
thanks to this head start.
I'm sure I'll be using my phone as a back up--
it IS helpful.
But for me, it's hard to improve on the security of paper and pen.

Vigorous and fully formed
she wears her white
wilted stems and faded blooms.
Few know or remember
where she came from,
but all who see her
notice her unexpected beauty
A local mortuary is going away
two versions of a 2019 calendar--
a "Christian" version and a "Catholic" one.
I chose the Catholic one for its
beautiful pictures and explanations.
Although I use calendars less and less,
I couldn't pass up this high-quality gift.
I will find a good use for it!

In our spare time, we look for interesting (and free) events in our area--
like this Cruise-In.
It was a near-perfect day, weather-wise.
A good time was had by all, including my
I'm so thankful to be sharing these experiences with him.
At almost 70 years old,
I'm still a beginner.
I'm learning prayer isn't reading books
It's not composing a prayer list.
It isn't only an oral or silent recitation
I'm finding it to involve
much more listening than I imagined...
as much a response as an initiation.
But then again, as I said before,
I'm just a beginner.

Purchased at a thrift store for a dime
and missing seven pieces.

A comfortable place for my feet...
