Blogging Between Services

This is Sunday. All my life Sunday has been going to church worship services. I can remember sitting on my Dad's lap backwards and playing with the things in his suit vest pocket while he listened to the preacher preach. I would sit frontwards until the preaching started because I loved the singing.... Sign in to see full entry.

My Vermont Country Store Christmas Catalog came today. I immediately got me a fresh cup of hot tea, made myself comfortable in my rocking lounge chair and looked at the whole thing. I love it and it makes me want everything there, especially the candies, cookies, stollen, preserves, and the like. It... Sign in to see full entry.

Mine For A Time

I don't walk in the woods around the lake anymore. My feet are not that steady as they were long ago. If I looked up even for a moment at a redbird I would end up on the ground calling "Help, I've fallen in the woods and I can't get up!" But, I remember what is there and look out of the white...

Autumn's Cadence

Bright colors ever turning, changing, deepening: Burgandy, liquid amber, wildfire hues Reaching for the cerulean sky-- A background for nature's incomperable art In sunshine's magnificence, calls: "Look! Look! It's Fall again!" Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Do...?

I am so out of sync with this modern world of cyberspace and all it entails. I am spending less and less time on the Internet in fewer and fewer places and feeling less and less able to maneuver or understand what is going on and losing my desire for it. I'm just curious how much of the stuff you... Sign in to see full entry.

Betty Through Her Blogging Years

It was 2003 when I found Blogit advertised on the internet and thought it sounded like so much fun, but I was skeptical because I couldn't read anymore than a line on anyone's post. So I moved on to see what else I could find that might be similar. At that time even though I had grandchildren, I was... Sign in to see full entry.

The Prettiest Nurse I Know

Married in Sedona, honeymooned in/at The Grand Canyon and then back to Orlando in time to get back to work for Nurses Week 2021. My Granddaughter Mandy is just as sweet as she is beautiful. Her patients just love her. Sign in to see full entry.

We celebrate Nurses Week every year to shine a spotlight on the incredible nurses across the country that have devoted their lives to the lives of others.

Don't Throw Your Trash In My Back Yard

Spring is here but I'm not quite with it this year. I definitely am feeling older this year, less bouncy, more draggy, not as eager to go places and do things. But I'm working on it. Where does the time go? How did I get to this place in life where I am satisfied to look out the window at the back... Sign in to see full entry.

After The Fire Is Gone

The din and the clamor is decamping today, moving out of my living area and off to the places east of me. I will still be able to hear them working but at a much lesser degree that will not be bothersome to me. I'm so glad that for now the work on my balcony outside of my dining room/living room...
