I saw this on Pinterest today and thought to myself "Aunt Betsy, that is exactly right, you are not a tree." I don't like some things in my life. Since I retired I have slipped into a rut, staying home unless I just have to leave, and not really living life as much as I should. Am I the only one? Are your days pretty much like the ones you lived last week? Nothing wrong with that, except I think I need to push myself a little. So, stick with me and let's see what is going on outside my 4 walls.
I have lived on Route 66, the Mother Road, all of my life. Every now and then I will post about something tied to Route 66, in my area at least. Aunt Betsy will get off her buns and go take a photo of whatever it is.
Do you like to read? I absolutely love reading. Feel free to suggest titles. I love cozy mysteries, biographies, novels about families, and humor. I like my movies to be rated G or PG and I don't watch anything R rated. If you know of a good movie not rated R let me know. Maybe I will review a movie here every now and then.
Since I am the only human living in my house I find it really hard to cook for one person. I tend to just not cook but I think I will challenge myself to cook one real meal a week and share the recipe with you. I have absolutely no original, made-up-by-Aunt-Betsy recipes, but I have tons that have been given to me or I have pinned on Pinterest. And I just love Pinterest, how about you? Oh, and I eat, I just don't cook.
Dogs! I will talk about dogs because I will always have a dog. I am the crazy dog lady (my sister is the crazy cat lady).
I had to retire much earlier than I planned from a job I loved because of an illness that will not be going away but that is all I am going to say about that. Because of that illness I am unable to work so dang it, I am financially challenged. Having very little money, and not having the ability to change it, just stinks. STINKS! It sure limits what I would like to do, like travel, go out to eat, do fun things but as long as I have a library card and a few other things I am pretty happy (and pretty lucky). If you have any frugal living tips send them my way.
I really like to take photos. I don't have fancy equipment, just a point and shoot camera but it is the best toy I ever had. Do you like to take photos? On Sundays I think I will just post a photo, no text. I would love it if you would leave a comment letting me know what you think when you see the photo, or how it makes you feel, or something. Comments, I would like comments, please! :) Can anyone tell me a simple way to put a watermark on a photo to indicate I took it? I would like to put my name on them. Please and thank you.
I believe life is short so tell people you love them, give them a hug, call your Momma, & find something beautiful to look at wherever you are. I hope to make some new friends so I hope you will come back by, and please let me hear from you!
Go hug somebody,
