Nightmare"s: Fact or Fiction?

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Warning: this is a personal dump.

Last night I awoke at 1 in the morning, sweating and shaking from terror, a nightmare. I had suffered from one of those dreams so real the lines of reality were but a blur. Ever have one of those dreams?

My dream was like the time and space continuum seem to have melted into one warped image (think Dali’s “Melting Clocks). The exact content of my dream will not be divulged but note it was a nightmare, an image only I can see and feel. What was the exact point to this dream?


Frantic Friday

Friday, August 26, 2011

Yes that is me on the beach!
“I wonder if Al Roker can float.” That is what I thought as I turned on the weather channel this morning. I have an extremely busy day scheduled, so knowing the weather was a must and to my surprise?

Al Roker is standing on a beach in Duck, NC. He must either make a ton of money or lost part of his brain with all that weight. I have been to Duck; in fact I have a ton of memories of Duck.


Why Was I Not Told?

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

That is my question of the week, well maybe just one more; do you listen or do you talk? Myself, I try to do both; don’t think you are going to talk to me and not get my opinion. Isn’t that what conversation is all about, back and forth, give and take?

To listen, actually listen, is something I have had to work hard at; it did not always come easy to me. I use to have a bad habit of being two steps ahead of the conversation and often would say something that made me sound like a total idiot. A few moments later it made sense. Again, I ask, “Why was I not told?”


Art is Subjective

Monday, August 22, 2011

I just checked my blog with Windows IE and still you cannot read it. I’m hoping a new posting will correct this, but in case it does not, please trying reading with another browser if you have one. And how was your weekend?

Weekends now to me are like falling into another dimension of time. Ms. Twister whirls in with jet lag, road worn and tries to cram more in one day than a human can but her powers of observation never seems to fail her.


August Awards

Friday, August 19, 2011

I have no idea what is going on but if this works maybe I can next visit you my lovely followers. I’ve only been trying since 4 this morning to post this.

fire award Mary
Mary @ Giggles and Guns bestowed a lovely award on me yesterday. Thank you Mary, I won’t forget this (she says rolling eyes). I hope my answers live up to your expectations.


Blogger Has me Tied Up

I am having major Blogger issues. I can compose text only posts, no photos, no comments. I have awards to answer and pictures to share but I have been hog tied.

I thought it was late night thing, I read several blogs yet could not comment. I came back EARLY this morning and still the problem has not corrected its self.

I am here and have been reading but my comments at the moment are not for sharing. Mary you will just have to wait for my answers. I'm working at correcting this situation but I fear blogger has other ideas.

Be back when things have corrected their self. I hope you understand and will bear with me in this time of technical difficulty. :)


Let’s Go to the Fair

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

This post is in regards to state fairs and up front I want to say in NO way is this a slight on the tragedy in Indianapolis. My heart goes out to the victims and families.

Before that though I had been thinking of attending our state fair, it starts tomorrow. As a child I use to love going to the fair; all the visual stimulation, the melting pot of aromas, and of course all the freebies.

The thought occurred to me that each day the fair changes, how am I to pick the best day for my visit? What day would host the shows I really wanted to see? Yes, I let my fingers tickle the keys over the internet in search of what I deemed worthy shows. I’ll tell you right now, just slap me and knock the shock right off my face.


A Misty River of Thoughts

Monday, August 15, 2011

Monday, it is Monday isn’t it? Which means the cable people will be here soon, I must get this out before they decided to disconnect to re-connect me because the storms did a number on my cable wire.

I have thought about this and truly wanted this to be an uplifting post, being it is Monday, but my mind is a fog bank. Like a river bank full of misty, illusions of floating incomplete thoughts. Anyone care to help me paddle?


Tis My Season

Friday, August 12, 2011

This lovely stuff is in full bloom here and due to all the spring rains we are having a bumper crop. I know it is pretty but not if you are allergic. It does this to my eyes.

See the map of the universe in there? It is but then on top of red, they are swollen sort of like this poor fellows.

And no wonder, this is what is floating around in my eyes. From what I can see they sure look like they feel.

While in this state of allergy eyes I miss things or see things not truly as they are, sort of like squinting and making things in the clouds. I say this because I will be reading blogs in spurts and I hope my eyes see exactly what is there. Should a comment seem totally off the wall, you have been warned, blamed it on the little spiked balls floating in my eyes.

In doing my research of photos to better inform you I came upon this one. Will someone explain what this has to do with allergy eyes?

Rainbow  Peace... and have a great weekend!


Something is Amiss

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

The sun was not up and shadows danced their final waltz as I flipped the light switch. “Ah coffee, I need coffee,” my first thought on any given morning. Something was different though, something was amiss; what am I not seeing?

As I poured in the water, I giggled at the additional shadows the light created for the final waltz. Patiently waiting by the door the girls began to do the, “Let me out, I have to pee dance” and I obliged them. As the door came to I again felt that tug, “Something was not right, something is amiss; what am I not seeing?”


Road Trip Pictures

Monday, August 8, 2011

I left you last week discussing reflections of a completed project and my girls suggesting a road trip. I took the road trip, totally solo, a new feat for me. How was it and where did I go?

I packed my truck and headed dead north to the lovely city of Cleveland, Ohio. Situated on Lake Erie and home of the Rock n’ Roll hall of fame I saw and conquered as much of Cleveland as I could in one day. Allow me…


Dog Days of Summer

Friday, August 5, 2011

The sun went down, the weariness of the day sat in and my girls took pity. Just like children, animals have their moments when their soul is all you see. Moments when you just know exactly what they are thinking. Either that or I was more exhausted than I thought I was.

We sat in the living room, as we usually do on any given evening and I broke out the laptop. This is when their souls begin to chirp. As I looked up waiting for the screen to boot I swear I heard them say, “Mom, can we talk?”



Wednesday, August 3, 2011

At the completion of a situation in your life have you ever looked back and asked, “What really did I learn from this?” After working for the past month it put me back in touch and now that it over, I had to look back.

I had to ask myself, “What really should I be taking from this? Is there a lesson to be learned here?” While I have been waiting all morning for the storms to stop and the internet to come back, I did just that; reflected.


Come See What I Did!

Monday, August 1, 2011

If you are reading this first sentence from a reader, stop cheating! You have to be on the actual blog for the full surprise and YES, it will be different.

Before I went to serious work on my temporary project, I left something hanging. Rather than wait for the entire re-vamp I am unavailing my new look.

New month, new look; why not? So, what do you think? I was sort of sick of pastels and wanted something a bit more true to me. I have more changes to complete however; I will handle that in stages. Hope I did not freak you out. Now…

Four weeks ago I sort of fell off the blog edge to work for money, Thursday that will end. My ability to once again earn money will be over, for now; back to blogging.

For all of you who have stuck with me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have missed you; I have missed reading about all your adventures, reviews, advise, stories, poems and in general, you.

I’ll be making the rounds to drop little smiley faces and comments your way. For now though I just wanted to let you know about the new look. You are in the right place, but if not, click the follow button anyway.
Open-mouthed smile
