Vivienne

She awoke this cold snow-covered morning extremely alive and happy, bouncing and singing to herself "Happy Birthday to you" because she is officially now four years old....My second of four great-granddaughters. Her Daddy Peter wasn't much older than she is now when I first joined Blogit and began... Sign in to see full entry.

Beautiful White Sight

The beauty of the snow outweighs the treacherous slickness of the ice that preceded the fluffy white and made a prisoner of me for now. But I don't mind. There is a wonderously-gorgeous view out every window, every direction that would have been a nice edition to our Christmas decorations but now is... Sign in to see full entry.

Rock-A-Bye Baby

Isn't she precious. Just born two hours ago. My fingers are itching to get her in my arms and cuddle her. That's the way it goes. Sign in to see full entry.

Yes, A Bit of Jealousy

So far no Scarlet Athena Stone today. Tomorrow at this time, if she has not made her appearance, the surgeon will take over and deliver her by cesarean section. You can't stay in there forever sweetie. You are about to be evicted. You have a lot of good things waiting for you--a beautiful sister, a... Sign in to see full entry.

On The 10th of January 2022...

Yesterday, I made a decision to stop being a wimpy Blogit member and to put some Oooompf into my membership. It was either that or to drop out and stop being a member in name only. I've always felt sorry for wimpy people and it is not really my style or pleasure to be one. I must admit that the loss... Sign in to see full entry.

Oyster Stew for Christmas

My Dad was an oyster aficionado, a connoisseur of the best ilk. He learned it from my grandfather who studied music and cooking at a grand learning place in Little Rock, Arkansas long before my father was born, or even before he was thought of.

I Like My Feet

I've got a pretty good long-term memory (short-term is lacking), but try as I may, I can't remember when I first noticed my feet. I do remember taking off my shoes and socks a lot when I was small. It sticks in my mind because I was fussed at for it. I remember learning to tie my shoestrings by... Sign in to see full entry.

Jingle Bell Complaints

The long stockings of my childhood were ugly! They were thick brown cotton that came all the way up our legs and I don't even remember how we kept them up. We're talking circa 1940 here. The shoes were heavy brown high-top oxfords. Their only redeeming quality was that they were sturdy, and warm... Sign in to see full entry.
