Our neighbor’s tall green wall of corn lining our lane became variegated some weeks ago. The green separated the brown top tassels from the three feet of brown on the bottom of the stalks. When we got back from Georgia, the wall was all brown. Before we even returned to Woodsong that evening,...

We left Georgia in the rain this morning, and Gerald had rough driving off and on throughout the day as rain stopped and started. Sometimes it only sprinkled, and sometimes the downpour and fog in the mountains made visibility quite a strain. We are glad to be back at Woodsong, reviewing the mail,...

My previous blog was written on my daughter-in-law's laptop--something I had never used before.  It took me forever to adjust to the different smaller keyboard and the built-in mouse at the bottom.  Hence all the errors, which of course I saw as soon as it was published.  Since I can't edit, there...

Kudzu-covered trees line the roadways with leafy green cathedrals. Eye lids close against our will against our will in the heavy September heat and we shake ourselves back awake. We are in Georgia to watch grandaughter Geri Ann and the Oconee High School softball team. Two opening games Friday at...

Our weekend was indeed special with the Archibalds, Taylors, and Leslie and her boyfriend Michael visiting.  It was not as good as it would have been if Katherine had been well enough to come out to the farm or if Vickie and Geri Ann had been able to come visit Gma Shirley as planned, but that trip...

The first Wednesday of the month is always busy for me since it is senior citizens day at Krogers and I try to do as much of my shopping for the month as possible in order to get the discount they give us old codgers.  I usually bump into someone I have not seen in a long time and that is both a...

I believe in divine healing.  I wonder if my prayers for healthy babies or traveling mercies have perhaps not only been answered positively but also prevented disasters and disabilities that I never even knew about.  I certainly thank God for those answered prayers.  I have often prayed for ill...

We have been enjoying luscious red ripe tomatoes with almost every meal.  Unlike our special friend Helen Green Galloway, 87, who likes vine-ripe tomatoes with milk gravy, we don’t eat them for breakfast. They taste good to us with all other meals, however.    I filled up three sacks today and...

The baby martins have grown up and flown from Woodsong with their parents for other climes.  Most everyone I know had their children/grandchildren start back to school this past week.  Although friend Pat did tell me they still start after Labor Day up in Wisconsin, where some of her grandchildren...

I don't know about you, but sometimes I must have piddling days.  (Some call this leaving margins in your days' plans) This has been one of those kind of weeks for me.  Mostly piddling.  How can I find something to share at the supper table with Gerald--or with you--that makes me sound like I have...

 Been too busy having fun to blog this week.  Did you miss me?  Our first three grandchildren--Tara, Erin, and Leslie—were all visitors this week. (I also was staying up late writing about Silkwood Inn for a regional magazine since I had promised the editor I’d do my best to get a story to him this...

A weekend of memories and good times ended with worship last night and this morning at the 100th anniversary celebration of Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church in Urbana.  Friday night we met with ten members of Gerald’s high school class of sixteen plus several spouses and friends.  The informal...

After a lazy start to my day, I sat down to my bowl of cereal at 9.  By the time I read the paper, drank coffee, watched a bit of news on the kitchen TV, and heard Gerald’s plans for the day when he came through the kitchen, it was close to 10:30 when I went downstairs for a brief time in my office...
