Hi, I am glad you stumbled upon my little blog.  My name is Helena, I am 55, a wife and a mother of four.  I live in Florida, and I hope you like what you read.

I started this blog for a few reasons, but mainly to keep me busy, out of trouble, and to share thoughts and experiences with you.  I have been told in the past to start a blog about cooking, which I thought was a good idea, but come on… life is more than that!

My passions are my husband (no lie!), cooking, reading, writing, travel, and doing my best to enjoy the bumps along the road.  Some days I get to do all.

Until last night, trying to come up with a name for my blog, I never did anything social media.  I didn’t do FB or Instagram or even Tweet.  Every blog name I tried was already taken.  I decided to sleep on it.  I figured God would help me out. Woke up at 5:30am with “Birds of a Feather.”  Taken, of course.  Thinking more about what I wanted this blog to be about.  If you are somewhere between 40ish and 80ish, seriously, we have lived over half of our lives… which means we have some things in common.

While we may flock together, we all have (and rightly earned) Grey Feathers.  Yes – physically, but my wish is for this blog to be about stages, experiences we can share, and mostly about knowing you are not alone.

As they say in Italy, “Galline vecchie fanno buon brodo!”

Old chickens make good broth!
