Got Shorty

Green tea with fresh mint and slivers of lime, over ice--a nice way to end the day as I blog a bit. Son #1 has always expected a woman (women) to do any and all cooking. I always did the cooking for our family and guests. His father never did any cooking. I even had to set out his Frosted Flakes in... Sign in to see full entry.

Selfies Bore Me

Elmore Leonard died yesterday. Finding that out made me sad. He was a very interesting man and a great writer/author/screen writer, and who knows what else. I have read so many of his books and have enjoyed the movies made from them. Two of my very favorites were written back when he was writing... Sign in to see full entry.

Complicated Confusion

"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated." ~ Confuscious The simple plan for this week was that Peter will be home from Twentynine Palms US Marine Base this week for a few days with wife and baby and family pre-deployment to Afghanistan.

It's No Use

Florida Son (Son #2) sent me the little lemur video, above, trying to encourage me to get with it and get going today. He didn't have much luck. I didn't even do that when I tried out his trampoline several years back. Do you have any idea how long it has been since I have done any leaping? I didn't... Sign in to see full entry.

On My Way

It is time for me to write another post, but my mind doesn't want to work in that direction. So, I'm just reading everyone else. Some days that's about the best I can do. If I haven't gotten to you yet, I am on my way. Great-grandbaby Marianna is growing up so quickly. She feeds herself, walks and... Sign in to see full entry.

Amongst The Pillows

It is easy to get all worn out if you pretend that you are young again, or even middle aged, and have energy to burn, and time to waste, on unimportant things. I did that the last couple of days, and today I just could not get with it (with anything). Every time Son #1 walked past my bedroom door I... Sign in to see full entry.

Adnohr Dreamed It Up For Me

It is "pink" time in KC. I just love what pops out around here in the first week or so of August. Today Sis and I were out gallivanting around and you would not believe how many crepe myrtle bushes and trees were in full bloom, and how many yards were displaying "nekkid" ladies (surprise lilies) in...

A New Tack

"I love to watch how the day, tired as it is, lags away reluctantly, and hates to be called yesterday so soon" ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, House of the Seven Gables, 1851 Lying on my back at midnight, window open, curtain pulled back, I listen to the cicadas making their wonderful little noises, smell...

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.
