And so it goes

Rainy days and Mondays are supposed to get you down. But this one didn’t. I had the gamut of emotions today, but I wasn’t particularly down. I find rainy days, even Mondays, to be rather cozy and comforting. Easy for me to say, since I can always get inside at some point. Had one hearing…

Sunday in Merlin

It’s a drizzly, rainy day here in Merlin, but the cloudy skies show off the vibrant greens of spring. It seems like overnight, the trees are laden with leaves. I’m writing this as I finish reviewing my few Sunday e-mails. I’ve gotten back from singing in the choir at the late service (an unusual treat…

I’m not much of a shopper

I’m really not – unlike many of my compatriots, I usually prefer to go in, find something and get out. I don’t browse around, looking at this and that, unless I’m trying to make a decision. I finally bought an outfit for the wedding and yes, it’s pink, like a pink snowball. I’m fluffy enough,…

Work between the stitches

But I really have a good excuse – I’m defragging the computer. OK that’s not a good one, since I can do this while I’m waiting. But here are pics of my sins of last evening. I really like this red, and even though it is a little on the warm side, it should work…

Happy Birthdays

Two of our six children are almost four years apart – save one day. Dori turned 4 the day after Danny was born. And now she is 29 (yes, no lie) and he is 25. It amazes me how time flies and the older I get, the faster it goes. Dori was our second child…

Progress, a little, but progress

This is the view that greets me as I sit down to my desk this morning and look out into the beauty that is nature…… And this is the view as I look down at my desk. Talk about a study in contrasts! Well, the good news is, I have a little time before I…

Big Doin’s:)

The above are pics from Kristin and Sonny’s shower at Sonny’s church in Hyattsville. They were all so kind to us – treating us as guests of honor and decorating us with corsages and boutonnieres. They were very generous to Kristin and Sonny and a good time was had by all. Made me realize how…

A shout out to Panera, LLC

I’m up late, I know, and I shouldn’t be, because I have court tomorrow. However, the sitemeter tells me that someone from Panera, LLC corporate in St. Louis, MO has taken a look at my blog – probably because I mentioned the slip and fall Wednesday evening. Let me settle things with you folks once…

Boy, it’s been a long day:)

But let me start with last night. Before going to bell prax, my second oldest, Dori, called. Theirhouse was flooded. Again. The management company was busy draining their place, but they needed to come over for a while, which they did. I went to bell choir and thoroughly enjoyed myself as I always do. It’s…
