I am giving in to the chaos of construction.  Time away, even though it was only one night at the cabin, spending time with friends, laughter and a few glasses of wine, have given me the breather I needed.  I have cancelled the new book club meeting that I had scheduled for Wednesday...

The Orange Building is back.  Wait, I think the last one was The Green Building, but they accomplish the same thing.  They let the many workmen have a place to go that is not in a corner of my backyard!     Construction is on going and little Clayton's yard is a rock mess....

Recently I finished listening to the book An Object of Beauty, by Steve Martin. I have to say he is a very intelligent writer, at least that is the word that pops into my head as I am listening to his words. The book was about a lady, Lacey, that is involved in the world of fine art, in...

Sorry I've been missing, but Sunday there was just nothing to say and yesterday the migraine monster popped up. I started seeing a white light-thingy-squiggly in my eye and knew that if I didn't get proactive and take something and close my eyes for a bit the migraine would soon follow. So far, I'...

The title, well, I mean it literally, really I do, but more on that in a bit...   Last night The Hubby and I attended (instead of my walking group) a private party Casino and dancing night at the famed Cain's Ballroom. Mid Life Crisis Band played and we danced and danced and danced, so there...

Easter 1961 Trying to find something to write about today and so I decided to look through some pictures to jog a memory or two. This picture is in front of the first house I remember as a child. This was Easter 1961 before we moved to Arkansas for a year. Daddy build that fence and gave me a LOVE...

"Fate chooses your relations, you choose your friends." That statement was the question for Thursday on NaBloPoMo and really caught my attention because I disagree with it.   Yes, fate does choose your relations, to an extent. I firmly believe that The Hubby and I were destined to meet. There...

As you know I've written a lot about my reading excursion lately and one reason I've got so many under my belt is that when I am in my car I listen to books. I use ALL of my time to my advantage. When the two Border's closed in our town I hit the sales with a vengeance finding tons of audio books,...

Good early Sunday morning to one and all. It is early here, 5:45 AM. Yes, I am up that early but when you are up at 5 AM five days a week your body just gets used to it. I was sleeping nicely but of course Clayton has to get up and eat and The Hubby was ready to oblige him this morning. When there...
