I Lied

I bought myself a Mothers Day present. It comes tomorrow. I'm hoping to get it installed and put together and used the first time without anybody noticing. When my sons, at various times, asked me, "What do you want for Mothers Day, I lied and said, "I don't want anything. I have everything I want."... Sign in to see full entry.

The Runaway

I never ran away from home, never had a desire to do so--at least not until I was married and had four growing active children. No, it was not the children that made me want to disappear, make a new life elsewhere. It was their father who had changed, or seemed to. Actually I don't really think he...

Storm Time

When the tornadoes come through Kansas and Missouri every evening and the sky is threatening and sirens blow, we know May is here. It is the beginning of a long season of watching. Watching, waiting, worrying (the three W's). Most people watch on the TV weather channels. Some people watch the sky.... Sign in to see full entry.

They Say Party Hearty

I did over the weekend, party hearty that is, and I guess it was too much for me. Since California Jeri flew back to L.A. I seemed to fall apart. I guessed I used up all of my energy while she was here. I don't know where she gets all of her energy to go, go, go, go. She has old age inconveniences... Sign in to see full entry.

He Must Have been Hungry

All the signs of spring are in the air and beauty is everywhere. I can't help but watch with fascination the things of nature being what they are and doing what they do. A little sparrow sat upon the banister surrounding my porch. Very quietly was he sitting in the sun. Not singing or chirping, just... Sign in to see full entry.

Closed For The Day

An early morning Scrabble Chat found two old ladies (me and Sis) not only playing computer Scrabble but also making plans for the day with Jeri (friend from CA) putting in her ideas from in front of the news channel on the TV. So far, what seems to be a sure thing is migrating to Sis' place for a... Sign in to see full entry.

Profound Reflexions on Aging --copied from the Internet because I really do not feel like trying to be me and write from scratch today. I did try a couple of hours ago. I had three paragraphs with which I was halfway satisfied. I was pondering how to finish my offering when I hit the wrong thing (a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Swift Mental Switch

The sunshine and warmth of yesterday, the blue of the sky, the busy chirping of the birds, the brightness of the blossoming trees all disappeared overnight, taking with it my mood of yesterday. I have a feeling that I am not the only one with the swift switch mental attitude. Yesterday, in... Sign in to see full entry.

What A Way To Celebrate

I just love the Queen of England. She is and has been, since I was tiny and introduced to the fun of making and keeping scrapbooks, one of my favorite people to follow in the news. The latest news today is the best--At 92 years of age, she celebrated the birth of her latest great-grandchild by going... Sign in to see full entry.

Well, So Much For Sunday Afternoon

We celebrated with a Zarzuela--La Revoltosa--Spanish, colorful, funny and lots of lovely girls in colorful dresses with whirling skirts and lacy fringed shawls and castanets. Ribcage had trouble keeping his eyes away from the bosoms with low cleavage. What we were celebrating was the 36 th... Sign in to see full entry.
