Yep pinball time changes within the USA can be rough, but nothing compares to recovering from a nearly complete time zone change half way around the world from home. Odd it wasn't as bad traveling the same amount of hours west to New Zealand. Russia nearly killed me.

I've always been able to adjust pretty quickly on my trips to Europe. I haven't gone that far in the other direction.

I never had much trouble with jet lag. I used to do one, sometimes two round trips a year when I lived in Japan. A couple hours of sleep, and I’d be okay.

My mom always had a problem with time zones, though.
Mom: what time is it there, bubbeleh?
Me: It’s 8:30 on Tuesday morning, Ma.
Mom: oh, that’s tomorrow! If Tuesday is the 21st here, is Tuesday the 22nd there?

I always find my get up and go underneath the dustiest part of my home. Usually a place I can't reach and in need of a ten foot ladder or even higher.

Right now I have a sink full of dishes waiting for my attention. They are feeling very lonely and unloved.

A snow shoveling party...no takers??? LOL No way into or out of town today.

Right now I'm using a bloody heavy pick axe to carve a way thru the ice into the barn. Geese may be waterfowl but snow and ice aren't exactly swim-able.

Guess that party's gonna have to wait for our snow & ice to melt, Princess.

Snow-shoveling party? Lol, sorry. I don't even have the right clothes I'll be the one inside making coffee, tea and a hearty lunch.

Right now it's sunny and 67°F and I'm sitting on the porch eating leftover pizza for lunch. (I took this photo yesterday. It looks the same today )

Just finished addressing and signing/commenting on all the birthday, anniversary, etc. cards for April, May and June.


I buy all the necessary cards quarterly at Dollar Tree to make sure no one is forgotten on a special day.


The "to be mailed" date is written where the stamp goes and they're kept in date order in a little brass mail rack in the kitchen.


The majority of family members live, in some cases, states away so we keep the mail carrier busy. We also will never be accused of missing any of the grands' birthdays.


Been doing this for as long as I can remember and it has worked well.

Just finished refining and reprinting several recipes for filing in my recipe binder.
