I Love Spring...but...but...but...

Spring has me in it's grip in several ways. I love love, love the birds singing and flitting and and nesting and laying eggs and having little birdies. I love the grass greening and the colorful flowers. I love it that I can open my windows and freshen the whole place naturally instead of spraying... Sign in to see full entry.

I Am Trying To Figure Out Why...

.....but there seems to be no rhyme nor reason for it. The noisy squawking drew me to my window and I saw a whole noisy "V" of Canada geese had come down shy of the lake across the road and were meandering around making noise as if they were lost. Who knows the mind of a goose, especially a Canada... Sign in to see full entry.

Henry Junior and His Pet Person

He picked her years ago from a long line of home-owners in Sacramento. There was no rhyme or reason why he picked my cute niece for his pet person, except that she is always smiling and laughing and friendly. He watches over her comings and goings atop the roof of her house and if she is out in her... Sign in to see full entry.

I Definitely Want To Move, But...

.....Having lived in the same place for twenty years, I had forgotten how much trouble it is to do that sort of thing. Right now I am just working on papers to apply for an apartment in the complex where Sister Nila lives. We have talked about doing this for years now since Son Ribcage passed away....

I Thought I Was, I Thought I Was, I Thought I Was...

.....Yes, I thought I was a good keeper of important papers that I would continue to need no matter how old I got. But today, I found out I'm not. I am so bedraggled from looking and finding everything under the sun except for the paper I need. As I have found papers I no longer need, I have stopped... Sign in to see full entry.

An Evening With Neil Diamond...

.....It is a great pick-me-up, rocking in my recliner or up and swaying on the floor to the music, his singing, the musicians, the lights, the reaction of the audience. With the concert in Dublin, Ireland in 2002 just ending on youtube I'm tempted to start it all over and do it again.....or turn on... Sign in to see full entry.

Counting Steps

The geese are loud today, and many, and active, pooping all the way, both coming in to and out of the lake and flying low overhead. A wonderfully sunny warm day with the temperature still going up, but soon to drop drastically and quickly to freezing temperatures. Phil is back to adult day care this... Sign in to see full entry.

It has been a big perplexity since Phil grew teeth...

.....Phil's teeth..... A big problem for Angelman's Syndrome people are the teeth and chewing because the teeth and jaw are not in synch with each other and good chewing is a big problem. Another problem is dentistry because they do not usually cooperate with anyone getting into their mouth. Every... Sign in to see full entry.

Worn Out...

.....I forgot how active and fun teenagers can be. They want to be busy doing something all the time, not just sitting around talking. So active, so energetic, so intelligent these days. I just spent three days with my Florida Son and his family. They left this morning and after picking up a bit and... Sign in to see full entry.

Happy President's Day ...

....No matter who you voted for, or whom you plan to vote for this year, no matter who you have liked as our President, or whom you have despised, have a blessed day....a day of love and cheer, a day of good remembrance, and a day of prayer for our country and its problems, a day of enjoyment of its...
