Happy Soul

“I am a happy soul, despite all life challenges.” Lailah Gifty Akita, Pearls of Wisdom: Great mind. And whenever I listen to the song below I have a peaceful soul. When I read this, I found my soul meaning!  “You have to go through those mountains and valleys – because that’s what life is: soul growth.” Wayne Newton
What’s yours?


This is a happy end, come and give me your hand!

Color Me Calm

Image result for adult coloring books

Yes I do and I am cool, calm and collected! I colored my way to Hawaii on the plane and in the airport. I color whenever I feel my nerves getting the better of me, I color because I can. Some people do jigsaw puzzles, some people do Yoga! Whatever you do, just take the time and do it! I like the way one of my color sheets came out, I’m going to frame it and hang it on my bathroom wall! The Crayola 64 Box of Crayons has been a popular crayon collection with kids of all ages for more than 55 years! I can’t get enough pencils for my coloring book. Next on my need list are Gel Pens! So, color me happy and join the club!

Toes in the Pacific Ocean soon!

This link about the Ocean says it all! Their words, my feelings to a tee! What I hope will happen is that the waves will wash away all negative thoughts! That I can somehow get my mind and spirit to join together to heal the wounds around my heart! At different times in my life, I have deserved what befell me because of stupid choices I made. I have forgiven, been forgiven, been loved, been hated! I’ve hated, I’ve loved, I’ve put aside my own wants and needs for the good of others! So the week of toes in the sand and water and playing with the waves is just what I need! Aloha!

Jacobson’s Department Store Toledo Reunion

I worked at Jacobson’s from 1984 until 1991! I started out in the Audit office, then went to work in the Credit office! Our Toledo store was so special and it was because of the people who worked there! Last night we had our 1st reunion and about 75 of us packed into The Beirut on Monroe Street. One by one we stood up and said our name, years worked, Dept. and a favorite memory! So many Cheers and laughs and hugs to last until our next one, and yes, I’m sure there will be a next reunion! The loudest cheer of the night came when Marty walked in. She was the Housekeeper of the store. Everyone loved and loves her, talk about a special lady, she was it! So when she stood up, this comment brought down the house, she said, “I know all of your secrets”! OMG, it was so funny, you just have to know her and her sense of humor! Hopefully the much wanted Facebook group for Toledo Jacobson’s employee’s will be up and running soon! I can’t wait to see the pictures from last night and read the comments!

Buffet Serving Utensils

On a buffet, where should the serving utensils be stored?

I love going to nice buffets and I have never had an issue with the serving utensils until now! The question above is just that, a question, it has nothing to do with my new found issue! I am no Howie Mandel germaphobe but it is getting worse the older I get. Or maybe it is just a sign of the times? So, from now on, when going to eat at a buffet, I am going to take my disposable gloves with me! Just think of all those people using the utensils and then get the image out of your head as to where those hands may have been! You’re welcome! Other things I can’t touch with my bare hands are the escalator rails, elevator buttons, bathroom door handles, revolving doors, and more. So my question to you is, what won’t you touch with your bare hands?
