February, Anderson Style

February in Minnesota is usually a swift kick in the pants…we get snow, rain, sleet, thunder, sunshine and confused birds…basically we are the epicenter for weather phenom. Well, my February can just trip over itself already. We have had so many days off school I feel like we are in summer break, but the weather is too cold to send…

The Thing About Hands

As far back as I can remember, my grandma Elsie had the same hands.  They were not pretty hands, in fact, they were quite disfigured.  They were covered with age spots and scars, from a life of hard work both inside, and out.  Her hands were gnarled and twisted from arthritis, with her fingers taking a definite turn away from…

A Memory of My Mom

So I thought of mom today. I was sewing and I couldn’t help but think of her, after all she taught me to sew. As a young girl, my mother always seemed to be sewing. She was a talented seamstress. In fact, she made some of my bridesmaids dresses for my wedding. I remember as a young girl, standing next…

A Funny Story

My sister Ally texted us the other day reminding us of the year that our dad brought home a HUGE tree for Christmas!  Honestly, I remember bits of this but this is me writing the story via ALLY’s MEMORY…..why doesn’t she write it, you ask?  Great question! Our childhood home was quite large (bought during the “good years”).  There was…

Happy Friday!

It’s been a busy work week and Friday snuck up on me once again.  Bruce was supposed to have chemo today but instead he wasn’t feeling well and we found out he has another round of pneumonia.  That took up most of our day and instead of sitting beside him and working on this blog post while he would’ve been…

How I am Finding My Calm, By Facing My Past

Do you long for the place where you grew up?  Or do you still live there?  For me, it is neither though there is still the attachments to home.  Those attachments come in the form of family, especially my siblings that still live where we grew up, and wonderful friends who chose to make their life “back home”.  It is…

Happy October 12th!

I’m a nurse so normally I don’t have a normal TGIF. I normally don’t even look forward to the weekend, as I almost like routine of the week better. Not that my routine is much like the “normal” person. I knew this week and weekend was going to be challenging. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I worked from 11pm-7am as a…

Aquaman

Okay, I am really excited for this movie!  I am hoping it is as good as the previews suggest, and I hope it can rival Wonder Woman.  Superman (the latest installments) with Henry Cavill, I enjoyed as well.  DC Comics has always lagged behind Marvel with their movies but I am always hopeful that they will be as good as…

In The End

It seems often my mind will wander back over the years at the times or the things that I should’ve or could’ve done differently.  It starts simply enough, any little thing will trigger the memories.  This day, it started with the movie A Star Is Born.  I have already given enough testament to how great I think this movie is,…
