Happiness is like a butterfly, the more you chase it, the more it eludes you, but turn your thoughts to other things and it may come sit softly on your shoulder

I think that may be how I start referring to my old doctor that retired. I saw my new doctor for the first time yesterday, and on top of the fact that she seems to be a genuinely nice person, it also seems she knows what she is...

A question has been sort of going through my head lately. I have always wondered why people get so offended when you correct their spelling or speech? I get they don't want to be made to look stupid but personally, I'd rather look...

ElusiveButterfly I correct my husband's errors and he laughs and said he tried. When he is typing something he will often ask the spelling of a word. I ask how he is using the word in a sentence and will correct him if he is using the wrong word. When I was working at our...

Over the years as we get older, there are things that happen or things that we used to do that changes, and many times while it might be for the better, many times these are things we continue to miss. Now watching kids now a...

ElusiveButterfly Our granddaughter has a tablet that was purchased for her by her aunt. We allow her to play games on it or watch her favorite Paw Patrol show on it, but it isn't an everyday thing. She goes outside to play, plays with her toys. We do hands on activities and...

Today is herb class. I will be out the door in a half hour. While we were on our parts road trip yesterday I got calls and e mails about substituting all next week. I told them "yes" on this one, just because I want to see the...

On the first day of camping, I walked to the washroom (bathroom) and was surprised to see this tree laying across the trail that all of us camping in our part of the park use. I walked on and it wasn't too high so I slung my...

There is a commercial that plays often on the radio around here for a car dealership that claims comedically, "It's a crime to pay more than a dime...down." While I get the 'comedic' element of the commercial, I have never been...

After church this morning I stopped by to see my mother at the nursing home. It was 10 am and she was sleeping in the recreation room in front of the TV. When I rubbed her leg she opened her eyes but did not react to me. She...

ElusiveButterfly This saddens my heart. My mother was not the same when we visited her yesterday. She usually is delighted to see Little Miss. She barely broke a smile. We brought her lunch and ate with her. Little Miss kept sharing her food with my mom. Mom would grin...

Many years ago I had an ant infestation, and didn't know what to do, so I called my best friend and asked her. Ground cloves around the edge of counters was the answer. It worked, and I use it and recommend it today. Ants hate...

ElusiveButterfly Do you think a mixture of ground cloves and salt would work? Cloves are so expensive.

ElusiveButterfly When we had a problem with drought, and we had water restrictions. I would shower and plug the bathtub. Collect the water in buckets and lug it to our garden. Our garden was lush and green while others were withering and turning to dust. We have blossoms...

ElusiveButterfly I'll have to remember to pick up some pizza crusts! Love homemade pizza over take out. Usually when I make homemade I make my own crust. That of course takes time because you have to let it rise. Buying a ready made crust would be just as good. We had...

Since joining this computer world a couple of years ago I've come to understand that American English and British English can be two different things. For instance, when I referred to someone as having braces to keep up his...

ElusiveButterfly I am familiar with quite a few of them. So, if I were ever in a conversation with someone who used those words I would understand most of what was being said. But, should I not, I give a good puzzled look that will tell the other person that I was clueless.
