Visiting Blogs and Answering Questions and Touching Mom

Image
  Wednesday while blogging I visited Pam over at Closed Doors, Open Windows (pamelasopenwindow.blogspot.com) First time visitor to  her blog.  The day I visited she had a blog full of questions. I replied and answered some of those on her blog but decided it might be a good topic for mine. Here is that post. Closed Doors, Open Windows: Tuesday 4...Home Sweet Home (pamelasopenwindow.blogspot.com) Pam's first question was what sort of house do you live in? I live in a brick split level home with stairs/steps  all around. My home. My Haven on the Hill Stairs from the basement, steps up to the deck and steps up to the front porch.  I have three bedrooms and  two baths, a dining room, kitchen (of course), living room and den. Under all  that I have a garage and  full basement.  I also went from living on  a nice level lot to sitting on a hill~ My Haven on the Hill. Most of you know that I bought my childhood home. The home my parents purchased in 1967 when I was seven yrs old.  Next que

Cabinets and Storage, Thoughts, and Treats

Image
 I have no  counter space. I tried keeping my meds in the cabinet ~ I hated digging them out. Put in pill containers ~ I hate taking the time to  do that.  I rather open what I need when I need it but I hated them taking up space on my counter. I had a curtain rod I had picked up at some point at GW for 1.99. I bought some brackets, and  some wire baskets. Secured the rod to the wall under the cabinets and above the counter. Tied the baskets on and BAM... more storage for my meds. They are within reach and out of the way. Speaking of baskets....I really should have removed the ones of top of the fridge before taking this pic, but hey, that would have required more of an effort. Anyway, I wanted to share my space. By the way, who uses  those two tiny cabinets above the fridge? It is a tad easier to get to the  small ones above the stove so I store seasonal glasses and cups, my filters for the  Brita and things like that up  there.  But you see those cabinets. Not a lot  of storage. The

Fog, Crane, Parking, and the Corner

Image
 Headed into work  Tuesday, it was really foggy. Check out the fog  hiding part of the building. Tennessee State Bird~ the crane! Yep, sort of look alike. Tall, skinny and  the spike on top!! LOL....sorry, could not help it. If I get up in the morning,  and move my rear, and I get to work before 7am, I can park across from my  bldg in the state parking. If I wait but I get there around 11:30am, I can  park there also. However, if I don't make it at any of those times I  have to park two blocks away in that state parking lot. But then I have to walk  up the hill. Tuesday the lot was almost filled, like before COVID.  When you park in these big lots in a different spot each time, you tend to get confused and forget where your car is.  To prevent that I started parking  in front of the ONLY telephone pole in the lot. That way I always know where I am. I will never forget the first few days my old boss in printing started working with us. I walked down to the lot, to see her standing a

80 for Brady and Crashing

 80's for Brady movie!  with Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno,  and Sally Fields is on my list  of movies to go and see! Comes out Feb. 3, 2023. I knew I wanted to see the  movie when I first saw it advertised but after watching these ladies on Kelly Clarkson, I  know it is a given for sure. Lily Tomlin was born  Mary Jean Tomlin she is 83 Jane Fonda born as Jane Seymour Fonda she is 85 Sally Field was born Sally Margaret Field and she is the youngest of the four at 76 Rita Moreno was born Rosa Dolores Alverio Marcano she is the oldest of the bunch at 91 Is there any movie that you are waiting to see? I wanted to see the new Hocus Pocus when it came  out. It by past the theaters and went straight to Disney. I am glad it did not  go to the theaters cause had I paid money, I might  not have been happy. I was disappointed.  However, I would not have been disppointed in Mavick.  I did wait till it came to streaming but I would  not have minded paying to see it at the theater. Pam H
