A quiet November day

It is lovely outside – the sun is shining although the temperature is chilly. But thankfully it is not raining or snowing or anything like that. We had a wonderfully pleasant weekend. We took out eldest granddaughter and went to DeKalb to visit our grandson. I took a steak dinner for him, as he doesn’t […]

First of Autumn

I do believe that yesterday was the first day of Autumn, but I didn’t make it to my blog yesterday. I was rather otherwise employed. Errands and just spending time in the beautiful outdoors!! I am really amazed that we have gotten this deep into September and the trees have not changed color at all. […]

Birds of a feather!

I saw my first robin of the season yesterday afternoon as I was driving back from town. He was sitting in a little park up at the head of my street!! I am so glad I went out yesterday – that certainly brightened my day. Today I saw another robin when I went out to […]

Spring – for Today!!

For today it is spring! It is the third day of spring – sort of like the days of Christmas. I seriously doubt that the days of spring will number twelve – with the winter we have just gone through that is highly unlikely – but at this stage of the game I will take […]

January Blues

I was really hoping I would get through the winter without the January blues – but that didn’t happen. December passed fairly well without the usual Holiday depression – I stayed out of the stores, did my Christmas shopping online and operated on the KISS principal (Keep It Simple Silly). Christmas almost came and went […]

Beauty in the World

Yesterday was a horrid day. I woke with a migraine – I have no idea what brought it on. We ate out the night before at Texas Road House and I really didn’t eat anything that I haven’t eaten before. I had no other symptoms of MSG ingestion, so I don’t think that was the […]

Quiet time

Today has been a really quiet time. I slept for about 8 hours last night and have just been chilling out today. I need to change the bed and do some laundry and make buns for hamburgers for dinner. I watched Ocean’s Twelve this morning while I started tying the quilt comforter for our bed. […]

November Morning

I’ve been having an orgy of letterboxing!! LOL! I seem to really want to get out there and find these boxes – maybe I’m trying to get them all found before the winter weather sets in – or just trying to get caught up for all the ones I should have found during the summer […]

Postscript

Thought I would add a post script to our trip. Mom and I arrived safely in California on Tuesday – November 6th. Crossing the Mohave Desert was not particularly pleasant, but it was definitely an experience. Another dubious experience was getting stopped by the Utah Highway Patrol as a suspected Drug Runner. Stopped me on […]

Day 19

Today we drove from Shamrock, TX to Albuquerque, NM. It was a fairly quiet drive – I did go find a letterbox and we ended up in a little tiny Texas town called Vega – along old historic Route 66. I always thought Texas especially northern Texas was more rolling – but it is really […]
