Mommy's morning out


I have the morning to myself. I am doing a feature on the nutrition center for senior citizens so I needed a hour or so to interview folks. My hubby and son are either asleep or watching something. Tomorrow I head to Cashiers so I am trying to get ready for that.

Interviewing the senior citizens made me realize how much I love journalism. I like being able to tell someone's story. I truly believe everyone has a story. It is amazing what you learn about someone if you just talk to them. The seniors at the nutrition are having Chicken Parmesan, some veggies, dessert and tea for a $1. There should be more people there to take advantage of that. Anyway, I am headed home to continue to go through my stuff. If I get a job that requires me to move, I need to be ready to go. So, with the help of JJ, I am starting to go through my things. I started this on Saturday and have found that I have a lot of stuff. I am donating, giving away and repacking. It is a nice trip down memory lane. My son took this picture of me and his bumblebee. He is become quite good with the camera.

  2. How wonderful you are following your passion and writing. I love telling stories as well - btw, did you read my latest? It was about a senior citizen friend of mine. She is a hoot! You could get some really interesting things to write about from the "elders" - a wonderful source of material!
