No Particular Topic

It’s been a while since I posted. I really did intend to post more often, but time somehow just keeps flying by and I get nothing important done and have very little to say. I thought I would just ramble on about things I’ve been doing.

I have had a lot of lower back pain and it’s making me cranky. Full disclosure: I was already a cranky old lady, but this gives me an excuse! It’s so annoying when your body ages and you start losing the ability to do things that used to be so easy to do. It feels like I’m being erased slowly, one thing at a time. I guess that’s life.

I have been attempting to write poetry again. I used to write a lot of it, but life got so busy with, well, life and I didn’t have time. I am fond of short poetry forms, so I’m writing a bit again.

I’ve also been listening to a lot of music. I was fascinated with Jackie Evancho’s early singing career. Such a lovely voice. I haven’t really heard anything about her lately, though. I also like Matt and Savanna Shaw, a father-daughter duo. Such lovely voices. Mostly, though I have been listening to Kpop. My daughter has been a huge Army (fan) of BTS for a couple of years. I recently saw a video pop up on Youtube and decided to watch it. I loved it! I started researching them and found I am a fan. I am now listening to other Kpop music as well. I’m not a fan like I would have been as a teen, but I have an appreciation for the talent and hard work that goes into being an Idol. The songs are really pretty great and have messages that I can relate to.

I have been reading. I am currently on book 6 of a cozy mystery series by K. E. O’Connor. It’s the Holly Holmes cozy culinary mystery series. I have really enjoyed cozy mysteries.

Well, those are the main things keeping me busy lately. I hope you all are happy and well.


I was cleaning off a shelf in my room and found some very old poems I wrote. I think they are at least fifteen years old if not older. I’ve always has a fondness for Haiku. That doesn’t mean I can write it well, but it was fun trying!

Autumn afternoon

Fallen leaves beneath my feet

The sun is so hot!
