It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Baby It’s Cold Outside

It’s freezing cold in Florida
You know it’s cold out there when the cats refuse to get out of bed for breakfast.
And then they race you to get back under the covers.
Honey usually wins.
I have a “sprained” ankle so I am losing all races today.
So have a happy day and stay warm and make sure everything, everyone and all the small creatures that depend on us, are safe and warm.

This was brought to you from my phone

A Reading List

My favorite reads these days are books that are not too graphic , violent , ,silly, and on the light side because I am in that position of being too sensitive to Everything.
I want to be entertained, to lose myself in a place where mysteries are solved , someone is the hero or heroine, maybe there is romance , a cat ,dog,horse but no bloody violence and nightmare ingredients.

I really enjoy the books by Nancy Atherton-the Aunt Dimity  stories.
My sister in law started my addiction to Aunt Dimity and it has served me well.
Read the first one, she inherits a house.......

I have and will read anything Daniel Silva writes.
Google him.
Charles Todd , start with his first and enjoy.

Do you enjoy reading a day or afternoon away?
Who and what kind of stories?
I have 42books on my Kindle.

I'd better stop writing and start reading ~


Due to the demise of my desktop and the severe exhaustion of old laptop, this gift of an of an iPad was wonderful!
But then I tried to register it, then I tried use it for looking something up online...
It doesn't really work 😐
So here's the story
I don't really have the ability at this time to Blog.
I will keep trying but things like this make me crazy and sad

There was a time when I hit a snag and someone was right there to help me along.
Sadly that is no longer the.

It's cold and sunny in Florida today
The cats and I will watch tv and sip hot tea and work on our plans for the future.

I hope this posts
I hope you will be here when I figure out how to come back.
Happy New Year

Ahhh...Sunny Florida ... I remember when I heard the term "snowbirds" years ago and thought it was comical but right now I am sorry for those who escape the cold up North,  to stay in Florida for a while.
It is 50F in Jacksonville today.
I feel sorry for the neglected cat that spent last night in my house ,in a nest of warm blankets. I felt bad letting her out,this morning,  she is outside now, cold.

I am full of plans and ideas for this new year , they can't be spoken of yet but when the time is right.....

Now I am going to have some hot soup.
