On having a know-it-all sister

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      10 comments

I just need to vent. My sister is 16 months older than I am, and has a history of mental health issues. As in being childhood schizophrenic and who knows what else. I know that, I accept that, and I move on. But she drives me crazy, ... Read more

This is my take on a wardrobe for hot weather - 6 tops, 3 bottoms, a dress, a sweater - two pair of sandals - a purse - and of course undies. Maybe a scarf. And jewelry. Good for a few months in a hot climate! travelfashiongirl.c... Read more

We're starting with a cold weather wardrobe - 6 tops, 3 bottoms, a heavy sweater/jacket, and a raincoat, that's all you need to mix and match. Well, two pair of shoes, and toss in a purse. Probably a scarf, so you can stay warm. t... Read more

Monday, October 27, 2014      14 comments

I ended up at Starbucks for lunch, and had a chicken salad sandwich that was on three slices of bread. I really didn't need all three slices - usually, I would take out the center slice of bread and put the top, bottom, and filling together. N... Read more

Introduction to Osaka

Tuesday, October 14, 2014      6 comments

We took the subway and local trains from Kyoto to Osaka - 35 miles or so, for about $8!!! Not a bad deal at all! We have a funny hotel, great manhole covers, and gorgeous flowers! All survived the typhoon that was down-graded to a tropical st... Read more
