Wicked Walk 4/29/2015

The last Wednesday in April was cool, clear and glorious!  All I had to do that day was see the dentist at 2:00 plus run some small errands.  So I took it upon myself to go up to the main section of the state forest surrounding our home for a lengthy, leisurely, restful walk. Here…

I scurried out late Wednesday April 22nd and fought the mosquitoes yet again.  Still, all was lovely. Here is what I saw. Flowers EVERYWHERE! And I wish I could send you the heavenly smell I inhaled!  The honeysuckle is everywhere and blooming like mad. Okay, bonus points for all who can spot the butterfly! 1,…

April 15th.  Tax day in the states, yet having mine turned in with 48 hours to spare, I was able to walk in peace. Here is what I saw. At the end of our driveway, in the morning sun, a plain purple flower seemed quite glamorous to me. And some little spiders have been mighty…

I slept until 8:00 today.  Well, I stayed in bed until 8:08.  It was glorious.  Until I realized my step-son had turned on the coffee pot at 5:30 and it went off at 7:30 which meant the coffee was cold when poured into my favorite mug.  I can’t stand cold coffee.  I gulped down a…

This Wednesday began perfectly brilliant and I thought “hmm, I’ve got heaps of time to walk on this beautiful, sunny day”.  This resulted in my procrastination to the evening hours which brought not only low light but rain and cold.  Pitter patter on my head was the tune I danced to along our back forty. …

There are several reasons I call the great state of Texas home.  I’ll not bother listing them all now but one main reason is the weather.  Sure, summers are hot but the winters are mild and wonderful.  I don’t know who moved me without my permission but the last couple of weeks I’ve not spent…

Christmas eve is a day I love.  Christmas eve is spent at my grandparents, which is where I spent much of my childhood.  I am joined there each December 24th by my aunties, uncles, cousins, my cousins children, my brother, sister, parents and pets of various species.  We visit, cook, laugh, catch up and take…

Wicked Walk 12/17/2014

As I pen this post I find it hard to believe that one week from now you will be reading this and it will be Christmas eve!  I also find it hard to believe that on this very wicked walk I got completely and totally lost.  Now I KNEW where I was in the sense…

Wicked Walk 12/10/2014

December the 10th was a really good day.  Not only was the weather perfect for walking, I harvested a spike (perfect double lung shot, pats self on back) and made cookies for Addie’s piano recital.  A well-rounded day.  The early morning hours revealed lots of beauty. Here is what I saw. Dew-coated pod and a…

 Today I cleaned my stove.  This in turn made my counter tops look bad.  So I cleaned them, which in turn made the cabinet faces appear rather horrid.  So I cleaned them, which in turn made the appliances, both large and small, seem a bit crusty.  So I cleaned them, which led to a careful…
