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.

A Curlew Or Two

Bird watching is a treat for me. Actually, my sons and I are sold on that activity. We share what we see and brag about it to each other. Son #3 is the only one that has had an owl sitting in one of his trees. I've always been a bit jealous of that as I am fascinated by owls. On one of my walks I... Sign in to see full entry.

A Day In July

She always calls me in July for a long, loving, special conversation...not one of those quicky things to let me know some change in schedule, or news of Peter, or bragging about her only grandchild (my great-grandbaby). She always calls me in July for that unhurried, reminiscent, mutual admiration... Sign in to see full entry.

A Pest Of A Post

This has been one of those days where I have been quite dissatisfied with everything that I have written for a post, and have deleted what I have written instead of posting. Everything has just seemed quite jaded, or idiotic, or as if I really don't know what I am talking about. It must be because... Sign in to see full entry.
