Seven Things I Love (3-22-21)

1. This VACCINATED Menopausal Broad – pardon my hair, I forgot to fix it before the photo. You can’t see it but I’m both a little teary-eyed and overjoyed. Not surprisingly, I’ve been reading everything I can on the vaccines and post-vaccine life and I found this excellent article in the Washington Post. WashPo hasContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (3-22-21)”

Seven Things I Love (1-11-2021)

1. This Photographer, Kirsty Mitchell – she is possibly my favorite photographer and I was lucky enough to get to see an exhibit for her book “Wonderland” in 2017. And incredibly they allowed photographs! I purchased the book (a completely worthwhile investment) but I love that I have several gorgeous digital shots. Here are aContinue reading “Seven Things I Love (1-11-2021)”

A Missed Opportunity for Anti-maskers

I have been ranting a LOT about masks lately. I live in Wisconsin and on August 1st our Governor finally issued a mask mandate. When I read the headline in the newspaper it brought me so much joy I can’t even tell you. His action will be life-changing for me. You see, I’m a at-riskContinue reading “A Missed Opportunity for Anti-maskers”

Seven Things That I Love (8-3-2020)

Well, I’m officially changing the regular Monday ‘5 Things that I Love” to ‘7 Things that I Love” since I’ve consistently had more than five things for the past few months. I’ve been hesitating do this because I didn’t want to commit to having more items each week, but it seems clear I’m having noContinue reading “Seven Things That I Love (8-3-2020)”

Five Things I Love (7-27-2020)

1. Dr. Anthony Fauci on the cover of ‘In Style’ magazine. Yowzah! The article is an interview with Dr. Fauci and his wife, Dr. Christine Grady, and it’s super interesting. I think it’s amazing that we finally made a rock star out of a scientist! 2. This article calling for the return of Parasols –Continue reading “Five Things I Love (7-27-2020)”

Back into the Fray

For the past few months I’ve only had the psychological capacity to write my “Five Things I Love” posts. Many of those posts didn’t contain much text, they were, let’s face it, simple listicles. It’s the stress that has been doing me in. Just like most everyone, I’m mentally exhausted. It’s been nearly a decadeContinue reading “Back into the Fray”

Five Things I Love (6-1-2020)

1. This article about the Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle and Friends – I’m sure most of the rest of you menopausal broads (and even those of you who simply grew up as a Gen Xer) remember Bullwinkle, the good-humored moose and his best buddy Rocky, who happened to be a flying squirrel. My favoriteContinue reading “Five Things I Love (6-1-2020)”

Five Things I Love (5-25-2020)

With the long holiday weekend I almost forgot to post this. It’s Monday, right? (I have completely lost track of time…) This Roman Catholic priest in Detroit practicing physical distancing by spraying holy water with a squirt gun into cars – 2. This wonderful Google Doodle celebrating Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s 61st birthday. I’m a huge fanContinue reading “Five Things I Love (5-25-2020)”

Five Things I Love (5-4-2020)

1. A friend of mine shared this Coronavirus version of Bohemian Rhapsody on my Facebook page. It’s fantastic! Right after I graduated from college I lived in the most wonderful apartment on the east side of town. 17th floor, overlooking Lake Michigan. I could only able to do this because I had an awesome roommateContinue reading “Five Things I Love (5-4-2020)”

Five Things I Love (3-23-20)

We all need to hear about as many positive things as we can right now. Having said that, I’ll be adding a few extra items on my “Five Things I Love” lists for the indefinite future… 1. This fabulous article about how Gen-Xers are so freaking awesome, which we already knew because pretty much everyContinue reading “Five Things I Love (3-23-20)”
