Tall corn stands thick and proud these hot muggy  August days. The neighbors’ soy bean fields delighted my eyes as I drove home from our village library and after visiting with a friend today.   The lovely bushy greenness spread out to the horizon like a warm wavy blanket. ...

Seems like yesterday that our grandkids first came to the farm to be together and attend Vacation Bible School at our village church:  Elijah, Trent, Geri Ann, and Brianna.  As usual, I was helping there, so it was easy to take them along. For these preschoolers, staying at the farm for...

Jeannie finished her 600 plus mile bicycle ride at 2:30 Friday afternoon and stuck her toes in the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers at the southern tip of Illinois in Cairo. Then they loaded the bike on the back of the van, and she crawled into the van with her coach to drive to nearby...

 Thanks to President’s Day weekend, all the beds at Woodsong were full over the weekend.  We didn’t have to use any couches though, so it was not a full house.  Jake got to meet his first of our granddogs. Brian and Brianna arrived Saturday evening with Miss Fifi, a beautiful white...

Phone, instant messaging and email, Facebook or Twitter. Best of all, in person…I’m able to interact with my kids and grandkids (and I do mean GRAND!) any day of the week. We laugh, commiserate, share funny stories and photographs. We share life—and love. Birthdays, Christmas. My grandkids put in...

Since I stay in air conditioned rooms most of the time, I should not complain about the 90 plus degree weather, so I won’t. I must complain about too many projects going at once and life not allowing me to finish one thing at a time. I have worked hard all week on various things and still stayed...

Wrtten on July 14--but never finished nor posted: My cousin Bill's son Mike died Sunday, July 11, and Gerald and I will be going to his funeral visitation tonight at nearby town of Goreville, our Martin ancestral home. All three teens here for Vacation Bible School went to my cousin David's...

When my children were young, I went on some of their school field trips.  What parent doesn't, if it's at all possible?  I actually figured my days of field trips were over since both of my boys are grown now.  However, this past week, my husband and I agreed to babysit our grandchildren.  His...

As I grow older, I am filled more and more with a sense of wonder. This week I visited the Los Angeles Planetarium, which I had not yet seen after its fairly recent renovation. The restored art work in the dome was, of course, fascinating in concept, but it is no Sistine Chapel in execution. What...

Well, I just this moment discovered that I did not blog on Wednesday night. Why? I have no idea! I proudly announced at Writers Guild on Thursday night that I blog twice a week, and I thought I was telling the truth. It did not occur to me then or until now that I somehow missed Wednesday night....
