June 6th, 1944: 78 Years Ago Today

Seventy-eight years ago today, ten years, four months, and ten days before I was born, the Allies landed at Normandy in France during WWII. Think about that. Only ten years after the invasion, I was born. Not that long in the big scheme of things, folks. It’s been twenty-one years since September 11, 2001. MyContinue reading “June 6th, 1944: 78 Years Ago Today”

Another Finished Object

It’s nice to have a FO (Finished Object) amidst all my UFO’s (UnFinished Objects). I’m still working on the ribbing of two pairs of socks and will finish at least one pair before I start anything else. I finished the knitted potholder Sunday afternoon. The lines on either side where I grafted the openings willContinue reading “Another Finished Object”

We Have Eggs!

I hate running out of staples in the kitchen and now that I’ve got two dozen fresh eggs I’m happy! We’ll have some scrambled egg tacos tonight with flour tortillas. The paperback copies I ordered of Dr. Pol’s book came in and I gave Brad one of them to read. I’ll take the other oneContinue reading “We Have Eggs!”

I really thought we were past that, and it might miss us yet. You just never know with Texas weather. In any case, there isn’tContinue reading “Here We Go Again!”

It’s A Wonderful Life!

I am married to the love of my life, coming up on forty-seven years of marriage in March. I have a gorgeous, talented daughter who has found the love of her life at long last, with a house full of children, living on the family farm and continuing what her grandparents worked so hard toContinue reading “It’s A Wonderful Life!”

Cozy Saturday Afternoon

It’s in the 50’s and sprinkling rain today. Good day to stay in and catch up on chores and do some reading. Brad went out and tied some streamers to the chain at the road to make it more visible. This is how it looks from our perspective. I stood out in the yard northContinue reading “Cozy Saturday Afternoon”
