It was 38 on the deck early this morning
Sun now shining, wind blowing
Leaves are beginning to turn
Still a lot of blooms in garden and on rose bushes,
turnip greens look great and need to be picked.
Just placed a big bouquet of herbs on the kitchen table,
the scent is wonderful.
Energy level like the temperature has gone down drastically.
At this time of year this usually happens
,Holidays will arrive with a time of being busy
and then a couple of months of time to read and then
walks outside to see what is surfacing for Spring.
Birthday cards are arriving
and a special box from Michigan
filled with some items new to me.
Love the soap with a Ladybug on it,
some tea that is new to me, honey flavored
with raspberry and hazelnut and a special
old pin from from this daughter's collection.
It almost seems like my stream of consciousness
writing thoughts are decreasing or is it drying up.
. So there will
probably not be as many postings.
All comments and emails are so important to me.
Important does not seem like the right word
since they bring me so much joy....
Do have entries that need to be included in my
collection so grandchildren will be aware of some family history.
With cooler weather there are a number of old pictures that need to be scanned
One grandchild made the remark in the past "grandma I did not know
that you had a swimming pool when mom was growing up."
I smiled and shared they were at two different homes.
Also a boat that was named for me :)
Lunches were prepared for outings and a memory surfaces of
how good food taste on the water. The evening before I would
fry chicken and make potatoe salad, baked beans and stuffed eggs, some fruit and always
a desert and plenty of drinks. It did not take long for it all to be
I take for granted that my children pass on information to my
grandchildren - but some things I guess just do not surface in
their talking to one another.
I can remember asking an Aunt who has passed away for more
information about my grandmother.
Her reply was she did not know and never thought to ask.
I always thought this was odd.
There is so much I do not know about the grandmother who was
my idol and I felt loved me more then anyone.
There is now no one to ask.
I find this sad...
Guess I have always been interested in history of family
and asked a lot of questions. Now I realize these questions
should have been asked many years ago of this special grandmother.
Enough rambling on this Saturday afternoon.
Weather is changing
and seems some old and new health issues are surfacing at this time
hopefully they will disappear soon....
