Memorial Monday

Monday, May 30, 2011

I will make this quick. I still have a great deal to do this holiday. I wanted to wish you all happy Memorial Day and to encourage you to take a moment for those whom have gone before.

Wars have always both interested me and confused me. There are reasons when armed conflicts are necessary but still, never welcomed. Then there are wars when you just want to lock the two bullies in a closet and let them duke it out. Leave the rest of us out of it.


Just So You Know…

Friday, May 27, 2011

Stop! Before we get to the Just so you know, I want you to know we are okay. It appears some of my lovely followers saw Kentucky, storms, and worried a bit. I am sorry I caused undo stress.

Just another reason I love blogging. Nowhere have I found such an abundance of wonderful, caring people, sort of brings a tear to your eye. I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. Now on with the just so you know. 


10 Days and the Planets Have Aligned

Monday, May 23, 2011

I know it has been 10 days and I am sorry about my absence, but life handed me a break. It was neither planned nor self-imposed just dealt to me and I ran with it. What else is a girl to do?

No, I did not get a job or anything  that grand, it seems all the planets aligned and everything happened at once. In stepped life and in no shape or form could I step past it. So this is what ten days away with all the planets aligned looks like.


I Blame it on the Robin

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Whatever happened to spring? The monsoon stopped and summer entered. Monday afternoon the girls and I actually got to be outdoors to enjoy the long lost sun but it was short lived. Why you ask?

It was not the weather that drove us in. Even now, I am not 100% sure as to what but I’m thinking it was the robin. While weedy the fence line my youngest furry child came running to me in fear and this is what I think took place.


A Mere 120 Hours

Monday, May 9, 2011

I ask, “how do you spend a 120 hours?” I sat here this Monday morning looking at my weekly rhythm list when a thought occurred to me, “how much time do I really have?” 

I have this on-going list of items that during any given week I need to address. I like to break everything down; I need this first before I can start… I so believe in baby steps.
I suddenly realized 120 hours was not at all that long. Do you know how long that is?


Derby memories and Mother Taught Me

Friday, May 6, 2011

Hey, do you have Kentucky Derby memories? Do you have plans for Mother’s Day? What a dilemma for Kentucky children.

I thought about sharing my Kentucky Derby memories and following with a special mother’s day post. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized, I don’t have that many derby memories.


Awards & Over Due Acknowledgements

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

The funniest thing happened to me on the way to the challenge, I got lucky and busy. There are some wonderful people out there I owe special recognition to and the way I look at it, better late than never.

Right before the challenge started I was commenting as usual, minding my own business and not paying attention. Most of the time when you guys are giving away something or having a contest I just am stopping by because I want to be there nothing more. I did not know I had to tell you that!


Just So You Know… A-Z is Over

Monday, May 2, 2011

I have spent the last month concocting stories, tidbits and so on regarding the letter of the day, whew it’s over. Well sort of, I’m supposed to reflect first.  That will be quick and then I’ll give you the “Just So You Know.”

Reflecting back I came to only one conclusion regarding the A-Z challenge, it’s not for me. I know as writers you guys thrive on this sort of thing but for me it actually became work. I have never been one to do what I was told, when I was told, then throw in doing it by letters and well, it felt like work.
