One Day Ago

Before the rains come, one can feel it in the air and know it is coming. Tonight is a good example of that. I can feel it in my head that it is going to be one of those downpours where streams form quickly and flow down the hills to the low places where the waters collect and block the roads, where...

Family Traits And Lots Of Love

One hundred and eleven years old--that's what my mother would have been tomorrow if she were living, but she only made it to eighty nine. October 6 always brings to me so many memories every year. She was a very special lady and I have always wished I was more like her. But, I also have too many... Sign in to see full entry.

All closed up, windows staring blankly back as if dazed that the TV is not playing. No smell of cooking,... no doors being opened or slamming shut. No one around, no hammering or sawing, no lathe noises from the wood-working shed. The lawn has been mowed recently, the mailbox is empty, neighborhood... Sign in to see full entry.

Here I Am Again

I hadn't realized that so many days have gone by since I last posted on Blogit. I have dropped in a few times and read a blog or two. Things have been pretty hectic around here and everything wears me out so much. Sis was admitted to the hospital for a terrible gallbladder attack that involved such... Sign in to see full entry.

New For Me

I usually take "new for me" pretty much for granted, but I'm a bit nervous about this one. I almost wish I hadn't made the commitment just to make other people happy. I did like things the way they were. Today my Apple iPhone is supposed to arrive. I know I mentioned it once before and it seems like... Sign in to see full entry.

The Heart of the Matter

"The heart has reasons that reason does not understand." It is what is in the heart that counts. If one stands while the National Anthem is played or sung just because someone tells him he has to do that or be fired, but his heart is kneeling anyway, is it better than kneeling while his heart is...

There Were Also Books

Short, dumpy, gray hair with a boy-type haircut and never a smile made for an awesome teacher for seventh grade sewing and cooking class. Everyone was pretty much afraid of her....except for me. I loved learning to sew and cook and had a ready smile in school. I loved everything there--the long... Sign in to see full entry.

In Remembrance Of Hulda

Yes, autumn is here--today. I always revel in the beauty of nature, especially in the fall. I got out the last two days just to see the changes taking place and yesterday to see the changes taking place in P.D. It was his 54th birthday and I love to watch the aging of my sons. All three of them have... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Remember?

Several years back, I posted several times about my Great-nephew Miles. At that time he was in high school and working toward making enough money to finance a year as an exchange student in Argentina. He made that goal, loved his time there and made lots of friends and became fluent in Español... Sign in to see full entry.

How About That?

An 80 year-old with her first iPhone and no idea how to use it. How about that? In fact, I'm a bit scared of it. I feel so dumb. But, I'm going to have lots of help from my Sweetie Family members who have always wanted me to have one. Well, if I can't do it, it will definitely not be their fault. It...
