Autumn sped through Alabama like a NASCAR driver at Talladega. After a couple of days of beautiful Indian Summer weather, winter is now here--cold, cloudy, and damp. I’m grateful that one of those bright days was last Sunday when we... Continue reading

Yesterday, Ramey and I visited the very old country cemetery where our mama, daddy, grandparents, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins rest. She wanted to show me the spot she had claimed for the three Ramey sisters, and I whole-heartedly... Continue reading

What walks here???? I have never believed nor disbelieved in ghosts. Well, not since childhood at least. I've never experienced one of the critters except in literature, art, music, and movies. And I've just never had an occasion to have... Continue reading

My family is going through tough times, so some things like blogging, quilting, reading, etc., have been put on hold. My older sister, Joanne, is gravely ill. The medical staff has said her days are numbered--they just aren’t able to... Continue reading

Ahhhhh. 40s at night, 70s in the daytime. Now that’s what I call Autumn! It’s finally here. I’m sure we’ll have the occasional spell of very warm to almost hot weather, but these days of cool breezes are wonderful. Of... Continue reading

The Merry Maids lady and I had a great visit yesterday. I walked her through the house for her thorough investigation. She rubbed window sills, climbed into the bathtub, scratched stains, found a cobweb. That gal was sho nuff thorough.... Continue reading

I can’t believe my favorite month is halfway over. I’m loving the cooler weather, which finally showed up a few days ago. But still not color. It’s dawning on me that I’m spending far too much time on the couch.... Continue reading

I finally got a little time in the sewing room this week, enough at least to get four more Little Girl blocks made. I now have twelve Little Girl blocks, half of what is called for in the pattern I’m... Continue reading

Taco is helping me rest up. Getting ready for my book club group to meet at my house was pretty difficult, as usual. The house wasn’t nearly as spiffed as I would have liked, but nobody seemed to mind. And... Continue reading

“Witch Hunt” hung and ready to greet book clubbers. I’ve been working really hard all week to get my house ready to host book club tomorrow. (Of course, working hard for me is, like, work five minutes and rest for... Continue reading

That’s a photo of the puzzle I put together while Andy and I were at the beach. I show it because I don’t have a photo of anything I’ve been doing this week. Oh, I’ve been doing a lot--just nothing... Continue reading

I don’t know. Maybe I’m getting old (ha ha), but I’d rather be home than any other place I know. The beach was beautiful and relaxing, and, in a way, I enjoyed being there--but I’m mighty glad to be home.... Continue reading

My feet have yet to touch sand. But I am enjoying the view from the condo. My back, legs, and hips still haven’t recovered from the ride down. I have done a lot of reading and jigsaw puzzling. Andy is... Continue reading

Another busy week has kept me out of the sewing room. I’m getting fed up with this. Something to do every single day. Except today. But I had physical therapy yesterday; so today must be spent recuperating from that. Friday... Continue reading

Exactly ten years ago, almost exactly to the minute, I said goodbye to the love of my life. The feelings of loss and grief never really go away, but they do soften and let you live, which at first you... Continue reading

Bama played Duke yesterday and beat them handily (if you don’t count the first quarter, which Bama slept through). The score was a whole bunch to hardly anything (I forget the actual score). I had bought Skipper the little baby... Continue reading
