Goodbye Nanny

Posted by miss m on Saturday, March 21, 2015 @ 12:23pm in Family, General Blather, Grief |

My Nanny – my Mom’s Mother; my maternal grandmother – passed away this morning. She was 98. She had been suffering from dementia for years though so we’ve mourned her in spirit for a long time, today we mourn her in body as well. Nanny was a widower. My grandfather was killed in a car […]

Excuse me, have you seen 2014 around here anywhere?

So…um, this is awkward. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for awhile now and it looks like it’s been more than two months since I last did. Whoops. And here we are not only in 2015, but midway through the second month of 2015. Yeah sorry about that. I did get around to making […]

Hooray for May!

I can’t believe that (1) it’s May already and that (2) that means it’s also now less than two weeks until my birthday!! Eek! I’ll be a whopping 37 come May 16th. 😉 Meanwhile, today is the so-called, “Star Wars Day” (May the 4th be with you!) and Love and I spent the afternoon out […]

Alright Universe, You Win

Posted by miss m on Friday, February 7, 2014 @ 2:55pm in Blog, Car Issues, Family, General Blather |

About once a week I head up to my Mom’s to help her with cleaning such as the vacuuming and mopping. She’s disabled and it’s hard for her and really wears her out. Since I work for myself I’ve got the time to help and I like going up and seeing her too. Yesterday I […]

2014

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 1, 2014 @ 2:19pm in Blog, Family, General Blather, Holidays, kitties, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics |

2013 went out with a whoosh as it flew past me and my intentions of posting more frequently in the blog. The second half of November and all of December became unbelievably busy and there was simply no free time available for updating, despite the fact I really did intend to many times. So here’s […]

Mother’s Day 2013

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, May 14, 2013 @ 12:33pm in Family, General Blather, Holidays, M's Birthday, Photography and Pics |

Sunday, Love and I went up to Mom’s house to have a family lunch as a combination Mother’s Day/My birthday. My sister, her husband, my Nanny and my Aunt were all there too. Since my birthday is on a Thursday (the 16th) and we were all getting together the Sunday before my birthday for Mother’s […]

Where Did February Go?

Here we are and it’s already March. And I realize my intentions to actually sit down and write out a blog entry in my oh-so-neglected blog last month not only never came to pass, but I didn’t even come close. Handful of photo posts….and that’s about it. Sheesh. Just seems like I’ve been so busy […]

Turkey Day Highs and Lows

Posted by miss m on Thursday, November 22, 2012 @ 10:34pm in Car Issues, Family, Holidays, kitties, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Americans! Hope you’ve had a nice day, hopefully with good food and friends/family. My day was one of those good and bad sorta things. Good Thing Love got up early this morning and did the 5k Turkey Trot. It’s a huge race they do in Clearwater (like 15,000 […]

Happy Halloween

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 @ 11:13am in Family, General Blather, Grief, Holidays, Photography and Pics |

Yesterday, I carved a foam (fake) pumpkin. It was the first I’d made since Rand died and we accidentally lost the dozen or so pumpkins that we had saved over the years. And unlike the one I made for Mom, this one, I used one of the fancy patterns. Tonight, I think I’m going to […]

Jack O Lantern

Thursday, I went up to Mom’s house and carved a pumpkin for her. She has rheumatoid arthritis in her hands so she can’t do the carving anymore. It’s been awhile since I’ve carved a real one – I used to carve the foam ones with Love and Rand in the past a lot so we […]

Oops

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 @ 6:02pm in Family, General Blather, Love, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Walt Disney World |

Has it really been a week since I wrote an entry? Sheesh. Here’s a quick recap. Saturday, we went over to Disney for a few hours to catch an extremely early “Dress Rehearsal” of New Fantasyland. See, they’ve been building a new expansion to the park for years now. It’s the largest expansion ever in […]

Friday was Nanny’s 96th Birthday so we went up to see her. Presents, cards and took her out to lunch. Saturday I worked on some orders including a couple custom pieces. Check out my custom full moon listing for how to get one made to your specifications and preferences! Sunday we went over to Magic […]

Happy Birthday Nanny

Posted by miss m on Friday, August 31, 2012 @ 1:00pm in Family, General Blather, Holidays |

Happy Birthday to my Nanny! She’s a whopping 96 years old today. My Mom, Sister and I are heading up to see her this afternoon. (Which is why I’m scheduling this ahead of time; I won’t be home to post it later.) Nanny is my maternal grandmother but has never gone by “grandma” or anything; […]

A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 @ 3:53pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Love, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

…but I’m chatty, so here’s pictures AND words. Mom’s birthday was last Wednesday the 8th, and we were going to get together at my sister’s on Saturday for a birthday party but Mom wasn’t feeling well, so we did it on Sunday instead. My sister had some technical problems with the grill (i.e. it didn’t […]
