All Done

It is so good to be finally finished with something one has been dreading for quite sometime. Yesterday was one of those days for me. It wore me out. Without even taking care of the dirty dishes after evening meal, I fell onto the bed, clothes and all around 7:00 p.m. for a little rest and didn't... Sign in to see full entry.

Stool Week Continued

Stool week came and went--twice--with not a sign of even the intention of doing what they said they were going to do. ( Go to Stool Week ) But, suddenly today toilet stools arrived. All day long stools were carried into the apartment buildings on the shoulders of deliverymen and set down in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Circumstance Without The Pomp

"Most of life's decisions are determined, in the end, by people on the fence--those who just can't make up their minds until the very last minute. They are the unknown quantity, the last minute surprise. They often even surprise themselves." ~ TAPS, September 12, 2012 I don't often quote myself, but... Sign in to see full entry.

On Being Practical

There is birthday party this evening (40th) for my nephew's husband. The invitations went out to 180 people, and 160+ responded that they were going to attend. They will have a disc jockey, dancing, eating, and drinking. Everyone was invited to "bring a bottle" but told not to bring birthday gifts.... Sign in to see full entry.

Memories of August--Trinkle That Is

The surprise lilies are wilting quickly now and soon will disappear as if they had not even appeared last week. The crepe myrtle tree is at its best at the moment and always makes me think of Mom who loved hers dearly: The cicadas sing loudly every evening and into the night--a welcome sound to...

Bill For $5,000

The bill that P.D. (son #3) received today was from the Insurance Company of his next-door neighbor. Apparently a relative of theirs parked his sports car on son's side of the street in the shade of a tree growing at the edge of his property. That was the day of the last really bad rainstorm with...

We Are All Humans

I came here with something on my mind to share with you. Quick as a flash it left me, leaving not a clue of what it might have been. It will do no good to wrack my brain trying to remember. I'm sure it will not return until I have shut down my computer and am very comfortably seated in front of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Stool Week

I know not which day it will be for us, but our apartment complex, with recently-changed owners in charge, decided it was important to update the bathrooms by installing new toilets and shower heads in every space. That seems like an impossible task to finish in one week, Monday through Friday. It... Sign in to see full entry.

Enamorado

"Goodness becomes grandeur Surpassing might of kings. Halos of kindness Brighter shine Than crowns of gold, And brighter Than rich diamonds Sparkles The simple dew Of love" ~ Langston Hughes In this day and age, goodness seems to be waning, kindness often scarce. And love?.... Where does love go... Sign in to see full entry.

After The Fact

"If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do, chapels had been churches, and poor men’s cottages princes’ palaces." ~ Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice Did you ever work long and hard to create something that was perfect in your imagined plans and expectations just to end up rending it...
