Who am I? A wife, a mother, a grandmother, an artist, lover of beauty, believer in the Universe and the Source from which everything flows. I love sharing my world with others, writing as the urge strikes. I create and I give, and I receive so much in return. This is who I am.

It's strange -- I haven't written here in months, but for the past several days, writing has been on my mind. Little did I know that it was a premonition for the demise of OD. Back in October of 2013 I developed the beginnings of another online diary at WordPress.com Here's a link to my…

    October 18, 2013
    Seems like forever since I've posted here (probably has been--forever, that is). I've been sewing like crazy, finishing a queen-size quilt for my niece's birthday. She was in on a HUGE surprise 50th anniversary party for DH and me a week ago today. Our two sons were the masterminds of the event a...

  • Stitching instead of writing–EDIT
    October 18, 2013
    I tried several times to put this photo at the bottom of this entry but it just didn't want to go there, so here we are, the four of us, mother, father and the two sons--celebrating mom & dad's 50th Wedding Anniversary. And I'll add my closing here before you read any further -- be…

    This is the first post I've made to OD in absolute ages. Most of the time when I tried to bring up the web site to even read my favorites, I couldn't get the site to open up. Frustrating... Tonight I finally managed to get the site to open up and it wouldn't accept my…

    There's always so much to do when we go south for the winter--and this winter is no exception. We've been busy taking the in-laws to dr's appts. and lately, visiting my father-in-law in the hospital. At 97, he's one for the textbooks of longevity. He's been in the hospital for the past 3 days thi...

    The preliminary cause of death has been declared "Respiratory Failure." They will perform an autopsy tomorrow and we hope to know more 24-48 hrs. afterwards. I hope we get some much needed information from it. DH and I are doing good. His father is still in the hospital and will hopefully be rele...

    I've written in the past about my Great-nephew, Thomas, who has been in a care facility since his work accident six years ago. For some unknown as yet reason, he passed away today. His aide was in the room with him and they'd been talking; she turned her back for a minute to get something…

    Middle Age Pearl wrote a comment on my last post. So I went to her diary and noted that she had a video about hummingbirds. DH and I dearly love these little guys. We have two tall feeders hung on brackets from our deck railing. I can see them just outside my office window. He…
