MIni Me But Not

When you know you've influenced your child,
but they have their own twist on it. 
I've mentioned what a great cook Ben is and today he sent
me this photo of his organized flours.

I had to laugh, as of course they were in jars,
just as I store most of my pantry items.

Now I would have DYMO labels on mine,
but I prefer his quick taping - his sense of humor is grand.

Notice the Gluten- Keep out of LA
The arrow on the Masa is actually a tortilla press
and of course flour in Italian.

This is a man who loves to cook,
and he loves a woman who loves to cook!
 For now, I'm too far away 
to frequently reap the benefits, but some day soon
I can at least visit and grab a good meal.
Happy Sunday!

Good World

All is not right with the world
but there is good.

The new Gerber baby Lucas
has Downs Syndrome.
Whether from conscience or PR goodwill 
Go Gerber!

from Gerber

Nancy Pelosi
broke the record after 8 hour DACA speech 
on the House floor.
Go Nancy!

Thanks to Google
I learned a lot about an artist
Paula Modersohn-Becker

Drake gave a boatload of money to folks.
Go Drake!

George W
says Russia meddled in our election.
In your face #45
Would have preferred the W to mention
#45 in his talk but hey..
Go George!

The wind was sent 

This said it best
from NY Magazine

It was the worst hair day of what has been a bad hair life. And it may seem cheap and low to mock Trump’s absurd efforts to conceal his hair loss. But Trump is a man obsessed with image in ways that go beyond the normal human concern with looking presentable. Image is Trump’s moral code. He dismisses his political rivals for being short. He sees his succession of wives as visual testament to his own status. He selects his Cabinet on the basis of their looking the part. He conscripts the military as a prop to bathe himself in an aura of presidential grandeur.
Trump’s absurd hair is of a piece with his lifelong attempt to market himself as a brilliant deal-maker and stable genius. So yes, it is okay to laugh when the ruse is exposed.

 I received this great Get Well card
from brother Scott and SIL Crystal
Their friends who came with them 
to Vegas last Spring also signed it!
Means the World to me

These two couples are in love, happy,
and my world.

Now it's 
aw not so bad.

My tank and I visit occasionally 
but are no longer symbiotic.

If I'm sitting being calm and still,
I'm off O/2 a good bit.

Still use concentrator all night, 
and time to time throughout day,
and portable to go to market but 
I'm weaning. 
I hope to be untethered by April

It's in the 70's here- don't hate us

I am ever grateful for my blessings

Good World

My constant companion
I might have gone mad without him
 these past 8 weeks.
He does snuggle very close at times,
and often brings a friend, this time Mr Chipmunk.
He disapproves of my reading when I could be petting.
That weird plastic cord you see is my 25 foot
tether to the oxygen concentrator.

Yep, I'm still on O/2 and still at a loss
as to what is the answer. 
Now they're going to start looking at my heart.
Fingers crossed they're wrong about that!

To think this all started with my sewing too much.
One medication begat another and another and another,
and as one ER Dr remarked, "you're on a merry go round 
that won't slow down for you to get off.

I'm weary of it all my friends
and the bills keep coming.

I took my tree down today.
I cannot believe it. 
In all my years the latest was always New Years Day.
We do what we can do, and can't
beat ourselves up with what we cannot do. 
At least not right now.
Lessons are being learned around here 
believe me, reinforcing my need to purge 
on an even grander scale.

That picture equates to 16 boxes of holiday I purged.
I'm telling you. I'm on a mission.
