Happy Thanksgiving 2008

Well The Holiday season has begun. The Christmas decorations are going up all over town and I’m feeling the depression settling down on me again. I think I’m going to see if I can find some soothing, mood elevating herbs to make tea from and use them this season. My house is fairly clean, living […]

Pumpkin Thinking

When I think of Autumn, one of the first things that comes to mind – after colored leaves – is pumpkins. Pumpkins in the field in September, Jack-o-Lantern in October and Pumpkin Pies for Thanksgiving. Pumpkins are believed to have originated in North America. Seeds found in Mexico were dated to between 7,000 and 5500 […]

Snow!! YUCK!

Yesterday started out so great with sunshine and the promise that it would warm up!! Then in the early afternoon I looked out the window and what do I see but heavy snow falling from the overcast sky – obscuring the houses around us and trying to pile up in the yard. Thankfully it didn’t […]

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 […]

Dreary Autumn Day

This is a day that my precious granddaughter would call a Black Hole Day. It is dark and dismal and chilly and rainy. It is a wonderful day to curl up with a good book and ignore the world. As a matter of fact, when I’m done here I think that is exactly what I’m […]

High School Questionaire

This was sent by an old friend and I had to answer it. Brings back a lot of memories – some good – some not so good. 1. Did you date someone from your schoool? Yes 2. Did you marry someone from your high school? NO 3. Did you car pool to school? NOPE 4. […]

Post Election

I am so glad the election is over. No more politicial debates, no more politicial commercials, no more knocks on the door with politicians wanting my vote, no more political signs blocking the view. Two years is far too long for a campaign to last – it just seemed to go on forever. I’m not […]

Election Day

It’s election day here in the USA and I have to go later to vote. My question is, what do you do when you think both candidates are idiots or worse? When you feel that neither one has my best interests at heart – or the best interests of the rest of the hard working […]
