Old Friend

This afternoon, while I was home, I ran into my old buddy….

“White Christmas “, starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Vera Ellen, and Rosemary Clooney, are my birthday buddies. As a December baby, I always knew my birthday was on the way when I used to see it, back in pre-cable days, on channel 48 in the city. Of late, I get to see it on AMC when they air it.

It is just like finding a comfortable old sweater and putting it on and the comfort is there.

You always worry that Bing Crosby isn’t going to wind up with Rosemary Clooney. Will the General’s inn go out of business?

Thank goodness for happy endings.😉

My Baby Zush

My Zosia is no longer a baby.

Today, 22nd of February, marks her 15th birthday. FIFTEEN! Where does the time go?

She has gotten slower, as most of us do as we get older. It is funny that I am older, too, and can appreciate what she is going through. We have good days and some bad days, and as most pet parents would say, what we would give to get them back to their youth.

Zush was a baby when she was in our wedding picture, and Jim and I cherish the memories we have with our girl. I was speaking to my former boss today and we talked about how the average life span for a pup like Zosia would be ten years old. I know she owes us nothing. I know I owe her every moment she has shared with me. The countless walks we have had together, my talks with her when she looks at me with those big Hires Root Beer eyes and keeps my secrets close to her. When I had ankle surgery, she would come up on my bed and lay next to me and give me comfort just by sleeping near me. The kindness she showed her “kid sister” Kasia, when she first joined our household was tremendous.I could go on and on and on…but there you have it.

Happy fifteen years to my Zosia, my Bestie.I cherish every second I have with you and love you for all you have taught me.

You are my sunshine!

Hot Tea

I am a coffee girl.

That is a straight away statement.

As I type this, though, I have a cup of tea with me.

Sometimes, I feel the need to warm my self with some tea at night.It brings me back to my brother and my Mom having a big mug of hot sweet tea to make the world right again. I am typing away and my hip is acting up and this is my kick back before I go take a hot shower.It is funny how the image of the sweet ,hot cup of tea just embraces me with warmth,

Oh, no worries.Coffee will be back in the morning.

Tonight?

Tea time.

An obvious glitch…

…because when I got out the front door this morning, I wasn’t immediately sweating.

Ah,Mother Nature-you are so cruel. Teasing me with temporary low humidity and
comfortable temperatures.I know you are two-faced,though, and will swipe the
temperatures up in a blink of an eye.

In the meanwhile, this might even call for going outside today and getting some
chores done and sneaking in a little walking.Might as well get it in before the
next string of 90+ degrees sneaks back in.

Happy Wednesday!
