About Momma

Now 85-years-old on February 22 and I'm still on the right side of the grass. Mother of two sons and one daughter (Bloggers SEB and Cindyisms are two of them). I'm Grandmother of three. I have lived with my middle son for almost a year now and he hasn't kicked me out yet. I stay active with household chores and feeding my zoo. (2 cats, 1 dog, and 1 bird.) Retired after 29 years+ at Michigan Bell Telephone and ten+ years with The Oakland Press. I was active with the telephone company union and a Dale Carnegie graduate. I work at crocheting, knitting, making ornaments, and other projects. I do a little canning. I trained with the Michigan Bell Clown troupe and then I was a clown doing parades, parties, and picnics for about 15 years. My other passions are music from the 50s through the 80s, reading, birds, flowers, my pets, big cats, and of course blogging!

Another Delightful Day.

Have you ever had General Tso’s Chicken?  I did a few days ago and it was wonderful.  I had never heard of it until Wes made ii a few days back.  All I can say is my son sure can cook.  I sometimes wonder what he will serve next.  But rest assured it will be great and in addition will be prepared so if I can’t chew it comfortably he will work extra hard to make it so I can.

This Is one of Honey’s resting places on the front porch,

But we do have to make sure she doesn’t chew on th wood.  Wes got her  stick from the wagon out back for her to chew on.  She chases it down the steps then hauls it back up for another jump to chase it.

The weather is wonderful with a nice breeze moving the leaves on the trees.

Well I haven’t walk today but I’ll get back into it tomorrow,  Most of the afternoon was spent getting the checking account entered in correctly with Wes’ help.

Well I think I’ll go sit on the front porch and either read or do a few Fill It Ins.

Enjoy your after noon because I plan to.



Doing Good]

Good evening,  Today Honey and I walked four blocks.

We are trying yo get back in to our exercise mode again.

Of course I used the walker and Honey only got tangled up once.  I think this is going to work out good for us.

The white flowers on the porch are multiplying.

I received my Snap On jewelry today but my camera said it had to be charged so the pictures will have to wait this time.  But I’ll show them to you soon.

Health wise I’m doing ok.  I’m sleeping well and Wes is on me about what did I eat.  He also cooks our supper.  See I’m happy I had him cook when both husband and I worked many years ago.

Well as I said I had finished Patterson’s Unsolved am now reading Ruth Ware’s The Turn Of The Key  It  is good so far.

I  do water the plants and try to keep it neat by putting my stuff away when I’m not using it  but honestly there isn’t a whole lot to do.   I do Fill It In Puzzle books but I think I’m going to have to dig in my drawers and work on some of the crafts I have started.

Well it is almost 9 pm and Honey is in her cage so I’m going to have to turn some lights off.  So good night for now.  Take time to do something nice for yourself!







Home Sweet Home!

Good Afternoon!  As promised

This is the new home of Momma’s Corner in Lake Orion, Michigan.  As you can see many plants and trees surround it.  My room is inside the porch on the right.  It is more ample in size with room for my bedroom furniture plus what I need to take care of the Momma’s Corner equipment.  It also hold Spirit’s ( my bird’s Cage) and Honey’s cage  (at night she sleeps there).  It holds my bookcase, my living room chair, and a three drawer plastic stand by the bed for an assortment of stuff I haven’t had time to file correctly.  But I will get it under control soon.  Wes has been started hanging my pictures and sayings on the walls so it is more like my home every day.

The Main porch is filled with plants.

One of my jobs is to check them to see if they need water daily.  Every thing I need is on the main floor so the only stairs I have to climb are to the front porch.  (Rule One Wes has all ready stated that I can’t fall off the porch!)

Well thae is it for today but I will be back with more later!















Good evening!  Well lets see what is going on.  Wes and I went to an Afternoon Garden Party yesterday.  It was at Greg’s home.  A lovely place with different  levels, flowers,  a koi pond, a screen in room on a lower level with seating, a beautiful wall that has flowers growing on it.  It looks out on a forest type setting.  The food was wonderful  The carrot dish was great  but I can’t remember the name.

Well I have been doing Fill It In puzzles and reading,   I just finished Shari Lapena Someone We Know.  Many twist in it but I really enjoyed it.  I am starting Ruth Ware’s Turn Of The Key.  I do have a couple of more to read also.

Chris moved my swing to my new home  from here bless his heart.

But I have only been it twice since the move,  I’m going to spend more time in it as soon as I get things in my bedroom set up.

Both Honey and Spirit are getting used to my new “digs”.  In fact Honey is spending more time outside running up and down off the front porch ( with a long leash to prevent her from running into the street.

I’ll try to get a picture of the house next time.  It is about 160 years and a real adventure to live in.  I remember when Wes and Debra looked at it.  But I never thought I would eventually live here.  It is right in town, in Lake Orion, Michigan.  Walking distance to main street and just a little bit to  Krogers, Walgreens, Ace, and a few other stores.

ell I have the main bedroom light on nd Honey i getting restless so I’m out of here for now.  Have agod one.




New Home Place!

Good Evening .  Momma’s Corner is coming to you from beautiful downtown Lake Orion, Michigan.  This Is the new home place.  I now reside with my oldest child.  I have several pictures waiting for you to see but at the moment I can’t for the life of me remember how to get them on line.  It has been a while so stay with me and I will eventually get this thing figured out.  I have been here for almost two weeks, have my bedroom set up with the computer equipment, along with my bird Spirit and Honey, my dog.   Wes has worked hard to get my connection set up so here I am.

I will have Wes help me get the pictures from the camera to the computer then we will be in business because I have a lot of pictures.

Have a great evening talk to you soon.

I’m Still Here

8 days have past since we last visited.  I have spent a lot of it fighting my lower denture.  I still have problems with it.  But I’m not giving up.  I have finished reading Jeffery Deaver’s The Never Game.   There were several twists and turns but it kept me picking it back up.

I am reading Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu’s The Red Scrolls Of Magic now.  It is a little confusing  but I will get through it.

Honey is still In her plastic collar but it will come off on the 16th.  She is going to be one happy camper then.   She has been fighting it and has had no freedom yet.  Getting out the door is a problem when she is in a hurry.

I took a picture of the purple colored flowers out front but I haven’t got them transferred to the computer yet.  I’ll try to do that next.

I’m a little under the weather but when you are an old broad you have days like this.

The weather is lovely and it is hard to sit inside.  I’m going to take Honey out now to run a little after I grab some thing for a headache.  Have a good couple of days and do something you like.

We will  visit again.


It Is The 5th

Well I finished Dean Koontz’s The Night Window.  Very interesting, fast moving, and gives you lots to think about.  ( It is a Jane Hawk novel). I will now move on to Jeffrey Deaver’s The Never Game. 

Honey is putting up with her neck collar but she doesnt know she has been 4 days with 10 more to go. She is getting around fine with it.

Cindy and I will have Chinese for supper tonight.  She will go pick it up.


It Is Day 3

Tomorrow is the 4th and Les and Anne are taking me to the movies.

Honey is crying right now.  She was just outside, having to come back in and contend with the cone on her head is upsetting her.  I held her for a few minutes then covered her cage completely.  So far she is quiet.  I hope she will settle down for the night.  This is a nerve racking thing when an animal has surgery and you are not sure how to handle it.

I have the house turned down and will soon hit the tick!.

I hope it is quiet  where you right now it is here.  Enjoy your holiday.

It Is 2 Of July!

It has been a busy day so far.  Honey is at the vet’s getting spayed.  I  will pick her up around 4:30 or 5:00pm.  The following is picture of the outside flowers.

the front garden

I am having a Bi*** of a time trying to do this post.  Too much going on and I feel like I’m not in control.  It will be better in a few hours but right now I’m up in the air.

Our front yard ground flag,

Cindy couldn’t resist it and I had to agree!

The Butterfly Bush is coming along famously.

The Butterfly Bush in the left hand corner of  the front yard is  doing very well.

The one we had bought ( as I told you) went to Amanda.]

Today is partly sunny, 90 degrees, and a wind of 4 mph.  It had a small sprinkle earlier but cleared right away.  I think I’ll sit outside for a while and read.  I’m still reading Dean Koontz’s The Night Window.

Have a great day!













Hey It Is Summer and Time To Decorate.

The first Day Of Summer.

The first things In the Fairy Garden

Also in The Fairy garden

I added this today after Amanda and Cindy cleaned out the weeds.

This was added to the front door.

This now hangs on the porch door.

Cindy found the Butterfly bush in the front yard and trimmed away all the old stuff so you will soon see the improved spot.

The flower gardens have had the weeds removed thanks to Cindy and Amanda all around the house.  Cindy’s Snap Dragons are about to bloom.

It as a lovely day to be outside today.  It made working out there almost pleasant. Of course this old lady had to be careful and not fall face first in the grass.

Well It is after 7:30 pm and I have some Chicken Noodle soup to eat ( with or with out the new bottom teeth).  Well I’ll visit again.  Also a late Happy Birthday to my Dear friend Pamela Jane.
