Impatiently Waiting & Wishing

Is it rude to yawn when people are speaking?  I hope not, because I have a case of the yawns, like a super-duper bad case and these yawns are coming one after another and they are unstoppable.  I am crazy tired these days, like, let me take a snooze at the stop light, just for… Continue reading Impatiently Waiting & Wishing

Bella’s Babbles: Sunday 7/7/2019

I’ve been up since 430 AM, it’s the new witching hour for me.  Even my cats look at me like I have lost my mind.  Sure they are ecstatic that someone is up and willing to give them more food, but after 15 minutes or so, the fan fare has worn off and they wander… Continue reading Bella’s Babbles: Sunday 7/7/2019
