Attitude Gratitude reminder from my sister

Attitude Gratitude reminder from my sister

My mood has been dark lately. I miss my dog. I feel alone. It’s been a tough couple of weeks. I received  an email yesterday, which was actually my sister’s newsletter. It was entitled Attitude and Gratitude. At the top of the email it actually said thanks Jamie. Truthfully when I first saw it I really thought she personalized it just for me. I honestly thought that even though it was her newsletter, for her business, that the subject matter…

A person meant to be in your life

A person meant to be in your life

It is a rainy, foggy and dismal day in New York. I am staying in my pajamas today and watching movies on my Firestick and couldn’t be happier. My stepdad will be over in a little while and we’re going to watch a couple episodes of Jack Ryan season two. Until he gets here and cuddled up with my puppies drinking my morning coffee. I’m just loving my life. Yesterday my handsome Firestick friend was over with his daughter. They…

A list of thankful Thanksgivings

A list of thankful Thanksgivings

Thanksgiving is here again. It’s time for family traditions of certain dishes made once a year with an extremely large turkey that is never eaten and always consumed for at least three days after today. My family all contribute a dish. I always make my carrot soufflé which I’ve learned to make for every single diet I am following. https://multipleexperiences.org/2018/03/16/carrot-souffle-vegan-or-non-vegan/. My mom makes a corn soufflé and the stuffing. My sister makes the soup and sometimes brings a vegetable. We…

Flooding in the streets…for real

Flooding in the streets…for real

It is so surreal seeing the flooding that goes on down by me. I’ve seen the streets flood a few times now but watching it is still such a crazy experience. I still can’t figure out where the water actually comes from. The canal is two blocks from me but that road didn’t flood. I watched a truck drive through it. Yet my corner looks like this: This is the street behind me, my view from the balcony in both…

On the flip side

On the flip side

I took the dogs for a walk on the nautical mile today to purchase some fish. I was able to take pictures of my life from the reverse perspective. My dogs were loving the smell of the fish store but they weren’t invited in. This is the nautical mile All lined on a canal leading to the ocean This is where I live. The top floor is my condo. These are the three most popular bars on the mile all…

No chirping birds at 4am

No chirping birds at 4am

I woke up this morning and realized I don’t have birds chirping anymore. It isn’t just because of the changing weather it is because I have no trees. I have an occasional bird chirp, but not the conversations of those birds I use to hear when I lived in my old place which was surrounded by trees. Now I live close to the water. I hear more chatter from the pigeons and seagulls. Even they aren’t overly loud. I thought…

Game day at the condo

Game day at the condo

Yesterday I had my first game day with the other retired people in my condo. For some reason it ended up only being 5 of us. We played a card game called Mille Bornes. It was fun you try to travel a 1000 miles but people can give you stop cards or accidents and other things that stop your ability to move until you pick the correct card to get out of the incident. I did not win but I…

I love my condo

I love my condo

I love where I live. I’m sure I’ve said this 1000 times but I just have to repeat it again. I love everything about my condo. I love waking up with the sun shining into my room and standing up seeing the sun glistening off the water in the channel. I love seeing the boats. I love watching out my living room window out to the balcony seeing the whole open ocean both when it’s calm in the morning or…

A fun day

A fun day

Yesterday was a fun day. My mahjong friends came by me and we played mahjong all afternoon. My mom came later to teach us how to form a hand faster. It was just a nice day. We played in my condo meeting room. It is this huge room with a kitchen, one large bookshelf filled with books, tons of chairs and one long table because the only time this room is used is for condo meetings twice a year. It…

My beautiful condo

My beautiful condo

I was sitting here with my blog opened trying to decide what to write when both of my dogs jumped on my lap. This is where they usually are but sometimes my Marshmallow gazes out the window in the AM. I spent twenty minutes giving my fur babies puppy love and gazing myself out of my own window and lost any topic I wanted to write about. This is my favorite time of day. My body is tired and a…
