More garden veggies today! I just picked some yellow squash, cucumber, zucchini that was 15 inches long, and some Kale.
I am reaping the garden’s fresh produce and I love it. I am freezing what I cannot eat and it feels great to have food that actually I grew all by myself. So I know where it comes from, what it has been through and how it is being handled. Wonderful!
I hope everyone is fairing well and happy. Kids are out from school for the summer here and our theaters show a series of kids cartoons and movies free or a dollar for them. I will be taking my grandkids to see some this summer. It is a really nice thing especially for all the kids who may otherwise not ever seen a theater or a movie . I like when community helps out. Don’t you? Hey, I like going just as much as they do.
I have been busy lately, my second born daughter will be getting married and I am having to do decorations, foods, etc, but on a tight budget. I have found lots of great ideas on the web. Pinterest is really helpful, that is why I post my posts to my Pinterest account. People from all over go there to look for ideas, recipes, etc, Check it out! Mine is under my word press name, and there is more than I have here on my Pinterest account.
I want to wish everyone a good afternoon and I appreciate my followers, the Likes, comments, and interest you show. I hope that I offer you something unique, handy, or helpful.
That’s all I have for now. I shall see you on this side of the rainbow,
Another week is gone. This week I’ve had a cold and had to go see a doctor. I was prescribed some antibiotics. Hoping it works. I hope everyone is good and well.
Friday’s are always good for me. It means time for me to do whatever I wish over the weekend. I enjoy not having a schedule to bind me down, even if for a couple of days.
I am writing this as I am lying in bed. Yes, I am being productive while being lazy. Haha. I do my best thinking in the mornings, often.
I just wanted to mention something I find odd and strange. How many out there have people that I have liked a post that you’ve posted, and then you go to check out the person’s page that did that and word press says they are no longer operating or can be found? This has happened to me many times. I often check the people who have read or liked my posts.
Too many times I have run across the ”site no longer found” or. ” site cannot be found” or ” user cannot be found”. This is troubling to me. I find it unsettling. Perhaps, those people are spammers. Maybe they are sneaking around for things to duplicate or use without rights to it. I don’t know. I would love to hear you guys and what you think about it. Yes, check out who checks your site out. It is in your best interest.
What do you think?
I eagerly await your answers. And I shall see you on this side of the rainbow. Remember you are worth loving, caring, specialness.
Well that last post that I tried to do somehow did not come out right at all. So I am trying this again. Hope everyone is doing good and is well. What are y’all up to?
I have been working on my book.
I also have been doing some of my poems in podcast form from Podbean, look for ”mipoet” that will be mine.
I would like to know if y’all are enjoying that are not. Let me know it would be kindly appreciated.
Just wanted to let you know that next week I will be serving my jury duty. They said to prepare for all week so I won’t be posting as much as I normally do I have some things already scheduled.
For those of you who don’t know what jury duty is you should probably look that up.
It is our civil duty here in America to participate in the jury duty if we have been selected.
Anyway, I have also tried to include chat for those of you who have questions or comments that you want me to answer if I’m online it will show you if I’m not. You can leave a message just look for the message icon in your lower screen when you’re on my webpage.
So I think that’s about it everyone try to remember that you deserve to be loved, respected, and treated fairly. And I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!🌈
Hey everybody! Hope everyone is fairing well this Friday!
I am going to express a few random thoughts, not in any particular order.
I love waking to the bright beautiful sunshine. It makes the start of another day, somewhat special.
I am drinking coffee and sitting here scrolling WP reader and reading some posts from you guys.
I love a community that gives back to one another and I believe WP can do that and often times does.
I love the variety and I am hoping my webpage gives that to others. I try and hit things that reach a different genre of folks.
Tomorrow, I will attempt to do some outside gardening. I hope to put some “already growing “veggies in the ground. My seeds I started inside during March and this month, have long since been planted. Some were great and are doing fine, while others are not. I have something eating my peas and I am not a happy camper. I have hung dangly things and fencing and I am not sure what else to do. We shall see how it goes.
I live with my two grandkids and my daughter, their mother. To say life is boring is a far stretch from reality. I enjoy the precious time I have with them. Although they love to be mischievous and a handful at times. I think it keeps me young and keeps me going. This was not how I pictured my life, at the age, I am now, but I am glad that God saw fit for me to have this most precious time with them. Kids grow up way to fast and in 20 years or sooner, they can move onto their own life and sometimes you rarely see them. I am never going to regret the time spent with my own kids or my grandkids.
I am currently, and very slowly, working on another poetry book. I want to give insight and hope to others. My life was never easy and was not handed to me with bows and balloons, or gift wrapped even. I learned painfully and strategically how to do what I wanted and get to where I needed to be, to feel safe and loved and happy. Still, actually, I am working on it with each day. It is a thing that takes time and work.
Learning to trust has never been my forte’ but I am trying to let go of my insecurities and shortcomings. What we learn as a kid and how we are treated will pass into our adult life. We need to grab the reigns and hold on and make it go where we need it to go.
I am getting much older than I ever really thought about. So this time in my life is something I am trying to learn. It brings new challenges and new things. I hope to go through this life more gracefully and sure-footed.
Thank you to all who genuinely care for others. That is what I am sure, life is all about. So many of us are hurting and lonely and misguided. So many are treated cruelly and permanently messed up because of the people that were or are in their life. We all can try to reach out a hand to others and try to love with kindness and concern. Love like that is a genuine love.
I have so much more to share or say, but I will save that for another time. Thank you all for reading, for following, for your comments and your appreciation.
Hope everybody is having a good day! I am loving the sunshine in my own neck of the woods…had been raining, almost daily. I know we need rain, especially if you are like me and have a garden but a break is really appreciated as well.
I have done some things lately with and to my site. I have changed the theme, again, and I like doing that.I think it freshens up the mundane of it all. I do the same with furniture around my house. Never have liked the same ole, same ole, and often change things up a bit. My family has adapted to it all through the years and probably aren’t very surprised to see me doing it anymore. I have always been this way and it has helped me I think, preserve my sanity.
I just wanted to say hello and to let everyone know that I wish you all happiness, love, understanding, forgiveness, and a thankful heart.
I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope everyone had a good weekend and will have a productive and great week ahead. I just wanted to touch base with you all and write some things for share.
I have been busy ! I have been planting, starting seedlings and watching things grow. I have also been preparing my garden area and my flower beds for the productive summer ahead. I love working with the dirt beneath my feet. It is so rewarding for me. Like therapy, in a way, working with dirt makes me happy. Although I am not as young as I feel I wish m body would cooperate better. Ha ha Getting older is fine but I want to do it gracefully.
I really like the fact that I get to share things that interest me on my webpage and blog. It is rewarding for me as well. I love knowing that there are readers out there that value what I write about or post on my site. It How great is that opportunity? To have something that benefits others, is awesome! I am hoping that I get better and better with my webpage and I hope to have more followers, more comments on my stuff, and more exciting things happen.
Life can be good for us. It is encouraging to me to know that I can add value to someone’s life. No, I do not have to personally know you but I hope to be someone who you like to follow and read from. I want to give that extra something to whomever it is that takes the time to include my stuff, my posts, my pages, in their days.
So, in closing I want to wish you all a good and happy life. I shall see you this side of the rainbow!!!!
Hey out there on the world wide web! Hope everyone is doing okay and feeling good, or at least trying their darn level best.
I thought I would write some about things that I have had on my mind. Everyone else seems to do that, so I said, “Why not?”
I am loving the days of sunshine around where I live. It is great to see and helps a person feel much better than a dreary rainy day. I have been preparing my garden area lately. I already have seedlings that have started sprouting. I am not sure if the chance of frost is a definitely thing of the past though. I have read where we, in my case, are going to see chilly weather, hopefully not freezing temperatures.
I really like getting my hands in the dirt and working the ground. It is something I contribute to my grandmother, whom I watch growing up as a kid. She could get anything to grow and much like her, so can I. I love the beautiful flowers as well as the vegetation and find that I am in my element when I am out in the dirt or planting something. I do not see much of an interest in two of my three kids but hopefully the one that seems interested, will find herself a lot like me in that department.
When a person finds something they are good at, they should delight in it and do that something with all the love and effort they have. I see our world so baffled with much of our stresses, instead of enjoying the things we really have reason to enjoy. Sure we are going to have rotten days and painful days and days when we wish to give up but mostly we have so many gifts we cannot see them for all those other things we are letting hold us down. I am guilty of this as well as the next person. Sometimes I think to myself how am I going to enjoy life again, and without warning it sneaks up on me and I find comfort in things again. That is not to say that I do not carry stress or burdens but I try not to let those dominate my whole life.
I know easier said than done sometimes. It really can happen though, give it a chance.
One thing a person must remember is that there is lots in life one can always find the thing that brings them comfort and joy, just might take some time.
I cannot wait to taste all the things I am going to plant this year. I hope to have enough to sustain my family once again, at least in vegetables.
So I think that is what I had mostly on my mind. Hope everyone enjoys this week. Thanks again for commenting, following, sharing my webpage and blog and I shall see you on this side of the rainbow!
Well, let’s see… I hope everyone is fairing well. I am trying. It has been raining here so much, I have actually thought of buying a boat, haha.
Rain is alright but not loads of it. I am writing because believe me or not I am turning 50 this coming Saturday. I am not in any way a fan of turning 50 nor do I like the fact I feel 30 but am actually going to be 50. I look young, think young, and feel for the most part, young.
Not to say that I have not had three kids, now have three grandkids, and have been married for 24 years. With that kind of thing comes comfort, familiarity and “use to its”. I like the fact that I am young looking, helps my ego a lot. The one thing I do not like is having diabetes and having things that pertain to years of having it. Diabetes can certainly age a person.
I like the same things, but my eating habits have greatly changed from my younger years, for sure. I like the same people and some have been in my life since I started school. That is a long time to know and keep in touch with a person. I have lived over half of my life with the same person, my husband and I would not know what to do without him. Those kinds of things make getting older, sweet and comforting.
Now if I was to name things I do not care for about aging it would be first and foremost, pain. Things that keep you awake in the middle of the night and those things that limit your abilities, those are the top of the list. I hate seeing those “told you so’s” hit me in the head. I do not like the fact I see my loved ones and friends die. I don’t care for tooth issues that present themselves out of the clear blue, as if to tell me my teeth are old too.
I wish sometimes I could run like the child, I use to be, and how they did many moons ago. I have not yet got to live out all my wishes and dreams. I long for the simple days of my life but cannot seem to find that peace. I do not mind wrinkles, nor do I mind the fact that I am most definitely in the “ma’am” category and not the “young lady” one. I don’t like the rude younger generation that seems to think the world owes them something. The world does not owe anyone anything, young or old.
In getting older I see things that this coming up generation never will. I will be able to tell my grandkids things they have yet to know from books or encyclopedias. I will be referred to as, “the one who knows” and I will be the considered smart for the simplest of tasks because this generation has technology in their pockets more than the fortitude to discover things “hands-on”.
I loved being wild and carefree. I never thought of myself as I am today, back in those younger years. I could not of foretold all I know and have learnt. I simply did not ever give thought to growing this age. Seems now, all I give thought to is mostly this age, peppered with memories of how things used to be.
If I could offer words of wisdom to the readers of this, out there, in this world, I might tell you to never stop believing. Never let your mind and heart grow tired of trying. Lift someone else up and hold them till they can do things on their own. Spend time with those less fortunate and try to put yourself in their place and understand why things are how they are for them. Say your prayers of thanksgiving and gratitude to those who have helped you ad brought you along beside them. Please, NEVER stop dreaming of a better life, a better world or situation. It can happen.
Things do not happen in a day, they happen when we work for them. Things do not just follow us till we realize it, we need to search for ourselves. We need to love, accept love, and graciously express it. We need to make this world, our people, and all that is in between a better place. We are not alone here. If in getting older you can be a better person, give more, be more, and achieve the impossible, you and each person you have influenced will continue. A small piece, a large piece, it does not matter, those pieces multiply.
I may be turning 50, but my mind is still good. My eyes still see, and I still feel things like for the first time. I have much to give, little I need, and advice that I need to share.
Thanks for reading! I shall see you on this side of the RAINBOW!
