For Lack of a Clever Title….

When I start a post, I wait until I have a title and then I go ahead.  Sitting here, I realized, I have nothing…  absolutely nothing for a title. I have spent this morning reading blogs and actually working in the yard.  Yesterday is was 80 degrees out.  To me, that is ridiculous weather forContinue reading “For Lack of a Clever Title….”

Sunday Observations…. 31 Days of Observing

31 Days Observing  Today is Sunday.  A busy day with church and cleaning up after church and getting on with your day.  Today it is a fall day.  It is a bit overcast and it feels like fall.  I love days like this.  Neighbors are working in their yards, decorating their porches.  It feels likeContinue reading “Sunday Observations…. 31 Days of Observing”

Conversation with Nature… 31 Days of Observing

31 Days Observing  This morning heading out the door to walk my dog Shugo, I stepped onto the porch and felt the heat of the sun.  Groaning to whoever or whatever was listening I complained about the heat. I have been known to talk to myself and to carry on conversations with myself, and thisContinue reading “Conversation with Nature… 31 Days of Observing”

Up from the debris of boxes…..

Uhhh… air… not the stuffy box smell.  My head is no longer in the middle of unpacking boxes.  There are remnants of packing paper and boxes still visible but for the most part we look normal in our new house. It was an experience to say the least.  My dear hubby and I have movedContinue reading “Up from the debris of boxes…..”

It was a flight that never ended… it went on and on my friends….

Many of you knew that I spent a week with my wonderful daughter, son-in-law and our precious grandson last week.  I had an evening flight out of BWI (Baltimore) a week ago this evening.  It was with a sad heart that I hugged my kids good-bye and kissed my little grandson.  I headed into the airport,Continue reading “It was a flight that never ended… it went on and on my friends….”

Saga (Everyone loves a neverending saga, right?)

Have you ever played on of those games where you pull one piece out and then everything crumbles and makes a mess?  It’s fun to try to keep everything up and steady, but it doesn’t always work that way. We are renters.  We rent from a lovely couple who are currently residing overseas.  They haveContinue reading “Saga (Everyone loves a neverending saga, right?)”

When it rains…

As a child I often sat on my bed in northwestern Pennsylvania dreaming of growing up and moving to California.  I dreamed of sunny beaches and big houses and being rich enough to flourish there.  I don’t know why I ever thought of that, but I did.  I guess it didn’t help with the MommasContinue reading “When it rains…”

Slow Dance into Fall

In mid August I wrote a post about autumn approaching.  How there was a nuance of its impending arrival… well, here we are in late September and the temperature is still in the mid 70’s creeping up into the low 80’s.  Autumn, when are you going to fall? As I was walking my dear littleContinue reading “Slow Dance into Fall”
