June, Bonnie. You haven't written since June....... I give myself a hard time for disregarding this blog. Writing this was something that would take your mind off some things, and give you a chance to explore......
"Be quiet"  I say to myself. I don't need this little voice in my head to be giving me a hard time. I have a zillion excuses for not posting, I just can't remember them. I think someone has running stitched the days together and gathered them up into a few days. Surely 55+ days have not passed....... oh dear. I'm fooling myself.

This summer has been interesting. Yes, that's a good word. Interesting. All encompassing. It has been the Captain's summer. I have taken him to the camp, and at least 10 museums and even a Graveyard Walk, which was more difficult than he thought. It was difficult to run the walker over the rough ground around the old grave stones. We were both tired the next day.

The early mornings are getting crisp, showing that the end of summer is near. This morning, the air was still, and I looked across the hay field, and noticed, standing out against a green background, a maple tree with leaves already turning red.

I decided the other day to use a gift card given to me by daughter #1, to a local coffee house. When she first gave it to me, I thought that I would never use it, that the opportunity to go sit and have a coffee just wouldn't exist. Then I came to the conclusion that I would have to make the time to go, and spend even a short while in the quiet, that I needed it for my own mental health. Of course, this was the reason my daughter gave it to me in the first place. I am just a little slow.....

This is being written on different days, because life gets in the way. The desire to write ebbs and wains and the result is a hodgepodge of this and that.

Saying that, I think I will give up on trying to write anymore. It has taken me days to get this much done. I will add a few pictures and call it a day. I will start fresh soon, I hope.

Granddaughter Lindsay. Gala Days Princess

She was named Miss Spirit 
which she has lots of.

Aslan and I having a bit of a cuddle.
Can you tell by the bags under the eyes that I needed it
more than he did.

Life has been a bit rough of late. Looking forward to better days


  1. Good to hear from you again but I am sorry to find things are difficult and hope they get better soon. Maybe I could magic my adorable little self over and cuddle you better like I do to my MH. She says I always make her smile. Lots of very special purrs and an ordinary one for Aslan.

    1. Thank you Squeak. Hope all is well with you and that your MH will soon be back with you.

  2. It is good to hear from you and about your activities this summer.

    1. Thank you Ruth. It has been 'interesting' to say the least.

  3. So glad to 'hear' from you again here on your blog. Yes, life is "interesting" - full of ups and downs. I hope you have some "middles" now! xo

  4. Finally!! Oh well, I shouldn't say anything Bonnie and I did read your comment on my post of lately. Sometimes life does get in the way, and for my own part I sometimes fall asleep having no clue of what the day contained. I'm not very active here either, but things can become brighter, that is my sincere hope. No darkness that can't be overcome by the light of Christ, I just have to remember it. I wish for you to be strong and have faith. Those were nice pictures by the way!!! You look really good there with Aslan, nice to see your face!

    1. Yes, things can become brighter, and I am thankful for those times when they come.It make heading back into the darker days easier. I have been keeping you and family in my prayers and hope that things are going well for your daughter.
