Here We Go Again

In the year of our Lord 2015, over a period of several months, here on Blogit I wrote the story of My Oklahoma Family, beginning with an ancestor born in Scotland around the year 1800. It was quite an undertaking for me, even though I enjoyed putting it together in my own words. When I got to the... Sign in to see full entry.

Jolabokaflod--Christmas Book Flood

Years ago, around 2004, there was a Blogit member from Iceland. I can't remember his name. We read each other's posts and commented to each other. After a bit of that, he tried to get me to visit him in Iceland. That seemed just a bit drastic to me at the time even though I'm sure it is an... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm Still Here

Even though winter is not really here....yet...it surely does seem like winter. Cold...snow...thick gray clouds that hide any thought of sunshine. It is interesting how the seasons are so different some years. It will be interesting to see how the winter unfolds...after it does get here. I never... Sign in to see full entry.

Practicing For Their Christmas Program

For many years of my life I sang in the church choir, and about this time we began having regular weekly choir practices trying to get ready for the Grand Christmas Program. I loved singing then....not so much now. Several years in a row I suffered from sinus infection and laryngitis. Each time it... Sign in to see full entry.

Blizzard Sunday

Ominous gray clouds cover our land this happy Sunday morning and the weather predictions foretell of a white-out blizzard, plummeting temperature, and terrible driving conditions for those not yet home from Thanksgiving celebrations elsewhere. It is coming quickly. Little Abby's farm out in the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Wrong End

Well it is that day--the day that people cook and eat, and eat, and eat. Most of them are thankful--for so many things, some not so much. Some don't seem to have a lot of reason to be thankful at this time with horrible things fresh on their minds. Others have gatherings of beloved people and laden... Sign in to see full entry.

I went there again today--that place I love, with azure skies and amber hues against the rocks of red and bronze, with scrub pines guarding mountain trails that lead to places that I knew so long ago. I went there again today--and I took you to places you have never been, or seen. I held your hand... Sign in to see full entry.

Bad News At A Youthful Age

Since I was 58 so long ago, I still think of that age as youthful. After all, Ribcage, my oldest child, won't even be 58 until the end of December. So, both he and I were shocked by a bit of news this evening received by a phone call. In years past, I have written Blogit posts about Craig. He and... Sign in to see full entry.

Explosive Expansion of Women in Politics

My sciamachy is lacking oomph today. Instead I'm more often seeking out my fuzzy blanket & soft pillows and making me a nest in my recliner. With a good book nearby, a video of a movie I have not seen, three controls (one for the TV, one for the video player, and one for an extra heater), a hot cup... Sign in to see full entry.

Before The Rain Begins

My body is trying to keep me from doing my civic duty. First, I woke with a headache. I decided to not let that get me down and to go anyway so I began my attempts to make me look decent for being out in public. In the midst of that, I sneezed hard and then blew my nose and started a nosebleed. That... Sign in to see full entry.
