Aiming to keep my dirt-dwelling life simple, special and sweet

The end of the world is a good opportunity....

I just found out today that this Saturday, 21 May 2011, is what many believe will be the beginning of the end of the world. There is math involved with this prediction, so some who are not so math-comfortable may succumb to it is difficult to disprove math at times. 

I really hope that Saturday is not going to be the end of things. I like Earth, and many things about my life. Also, my husband is out of town and won't return until Saturday evening, and I'd like to spend some more time with him.

Word on the street is that a powerful earthquake is going to ripple from the International Date Line and eventually destroy my part of North America around 6 p.m. Earthquake, rippling.... I'd like to take the end of the world seriously because it would be a very serious thing. Yet, earthquakes do not ripple (as I understand them now). Earthquakes are caused by plate movement: converging, diverging, submerging. My science background trumps my lack of math. 

Whether or not the world ends this Saturday, it's a good opportunity to make note of what I'm blessed to have and what I've enjoyed while I've been here. Truth is, each of us is very lucky. There is always going to be someone with more and there will always be many with less. Here's what I'm thankful for:

My husband

My dog

My parents

My siblings

My country and marina

Friends and family .... and drinks with them!




Making things


Perfect moments

Funny people

Chicken Paprikash - like you can get at the Hungarian Kitchen in Wyandotte

Sweet creamer with really strong coffee

The start of summer

Good ideas

Exceptional musicians

Great expectations (I'm sure this show will be fantastic)

Colorful pens

The best movies

Ending the day with a glass of Moscato and my feet up
