To Kill the Desire

My grandfather used to say “just enough to kill the desire.” We usually apply this to when we eat sweets. But really, what is “just enough?” Took a friend to PVD Donuts. The novelty has worn off a bit, so there were only 10 people in line ahead of us versus 30! I do find the little shop charming. But they should call them monster cakes and not donuts.

It’s True! It’s Really Happening!

Things from books & movies that are actually happening!

Penny from Inspector Gadget had a Smart Watch:

AND her book was much like a LAPTOP computer!


Captain Kirk had a flip phone on Star Trek:


George Orwell’s 1984 – our gadgets are spying on us and government says whatever they want to manipulate citizens.


There is a lot of buzz about the new HULU show¬†Handmaid’s Tale. I haven’t read the book but the show has terrified me to the point of nightmares. Many articles present this show as timely. That frightens me even more!!

Losing the petals! My flowers never last long enough.

The garden is still going strong! We’ve had great luck with broccoli this year! I wish we could freeze most of this stuff for the Fall. Our grocery shopping list is so short with all this produce growing in the yard. We try very hard to tailor our dinners around the veggies we grow. We’ve had lots of tomato, cucumber and chick pea salads (which are delicious). I am always excited when Fall arrives but I am saddened when we have to buy our produce again. But for now, we shall savor the moment!

So far so good!

Where in the World?

I have this constant need to learn or refresh my memory. I thought an atlas would be a nice refresher for this old brain.
