Back?

Maybe I’m back. I’m not really sure. This is the first moment I’ve really had to think about doing anything here on the blog. The garden is dwindling. I was hoping for a better late season tomato harvest but I’m not sure it’s going to happen. It has been so rainy the tomatoes are splitting…

Gone for now…

Hello friends and fellow stitchers. I am currently in full (book) writing and gardening mode with few spare brain cells to lend to this blog at the moment, so I’m taking a break. For how long, I don’t know. But I wanted to tell any readers I will be back at some point provided my…

Birthday month blues?

Things are feeling so weird here. There’s the drained pool and the squash bug attack from yesterday. H thought he had the van fixed, but it seems it’s near death’s door, so now both of our vehicles are in the driveway awaiting fixing. H hit some kind of animal, he’s not sure exactly what, about…

A train trip and the zoo…

As H (and I to some extent) operate in media, we got to take a little train ride Thursday. BNSF sponsored a passenger train ride for media and railroad employee family members. H’s mom went with us and I drove her Lucerne. I had to fly to get us there on time. We felt lucky…

Flowers in a Vase…

The days seem to fly by, even in winter. I wrote the previous post several days ago and never got around to publishing it. I was a little run down for a few days, but am better, so am back to more regular tasks, I guess. I’ve been watching Mildred Pierce starring Kate Winslet. It’s…

A Sea of Geese…

Was it yesterday I saw the geese? I can’t remember. One day flows into the next, and I find I have a hard time tracking what happened when. Maybe it’s the change in temperature. Yesterday it was at or near 60 degrees. Today it’s lightly snowing and everything’s frozen again. I had to haul water…

Just words…

It looks like it has been 10 days since I last posted. I have been busy with travels, then leaf raking and fall activities… But I’m also back to working on my book, or books, as I think this work will be a trilogy. I have had lots of challenges of late, ups and downs,…

Here, but not…

I’ve decided to take a little break… So, I’m here, but not… Back next week…          

The perfect swim…

Last night, after temps reached 95 degrees and it was cooling down, H and I chilled out in the pool. Finally, after days of the wind blowing like crazy, there was no wind, just a gentle breeze, and the water temperature was finally perfect, no longer chilly. I was in there for 2 hours! It was…

Aging and honesty…

Jude was talking recently about how she is aging, how she sees it. I am on the tail end of my 40s, which is really hard for me to believe. There’s a birthday this month. My 40s were where I really started noticing how I was aging, although a lot of things started going off when…
