Amongst The Pillows

It is easy to get all worn out if you pretend that you are young again, or even middle aged, and have energy to burn, and time to waste, on unimportant things. I did that the last couple of days, and today I just could not get with it (with anything). Every time Son #1 walked past my bedroom door I... Sign in to see full entry.

Adnohr Dreamed It Up For Me

It is "pink" time in KC. I just love what pops out around here in the first week or so of August. Today Sis and I were out gallivanting around and you would not believe how many crepe myrtle bushes and trees were in full bloom, and how many yards were displaying "nekkid" ladies (surprise lilies) in...

A New Tack

"I love to watch how the day, tired as it is, lags away reluctantly, and hates to be called yesterday so soon" ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, House of the Seven Gables, 1851 Lying on my back at midnight, window open, curtain pulled back, I listen to the cicadas making their wonderful little noises, smell...

My Angelman

Some days it is important to choose to spend time with loved ones over spending time with beloved friends from Blogit and other Ethernet sites. Those special days with family are happening less frequently for me, not of their choosing, but mine. You see, it seems that everyone of my loved ones,... Sign in to see full entry.

1 day ago

How quickly everything becomes history. Whatever you do, whatever you write, whatever you see, whatever is important to you, hungry history just keeps gobbling it up and moving on to the next thing. It is never so noticeable to me as when my blogs all line up as having been written "1 day ago" and I... Sign in to see full entry.

Always Good Intentions

I'm having trouble keeping up with what I fully intended to do when I joined Blogit. At the time, I thought it would be easy to do, but that was nine and a half years ago, and I was nine and a half years younger and a whole lot more energetic. What I intended to do still seems so simple and should... Sign in to see full entry.

Life Is...

Who knows how much time Adalia Rose has. A child with Progeria Syndrome normally lives into their teens. Adalia Rose is six, going on ninety-six. The word "progeria" comes from two words meaning "premature" and "aging". For that matter, who knows how much time any of us have. What is important is... Sign in to see full entry.

So What's Left?

Today I began the 76th year of my life. I had always planned on giving up the ghost when I reached 72. That had always seemed like a good day to die (the 72nd anniversary of my birth), back when I was 30, 40, and even 50. Now, I'm wondering why I chose that "goal". I feel like I am living on...

Attention Pod People

I meant to go to the city farmers market, this morning, in search of okra in its prime. It's that time of the year to make the best fried okra ever, and the best has to be small, the tenderest and the freshest. Grandma Sanders' fried okra has been the main subject of our family FB site for days.... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Coming

If I have to celebrate my birthday this year, I want it to be a lemon garden party,....lemons to smell, to taste, to look at, to squeeze, to zest, lemon ice, lemon pudding, lemon snaps, lemon soap, lemon candles, lemonade, lemon meringue pie. If my sons are involved, they always want meat....grilled... Sign in to see full entry.
