Always behind…


It’s Wednesday and I am at the Tuesday Chatter Cafe. Seems that these days I am always behind on my blog reading and commenting and I am not sure why. Maybe it is partly because I am continuing with my weekend computer fasts. I turn the computer off Friday night and don’t turn it back on until Monday. This afternoon I got almost caught up with reading blogs I follow. I still have today’s posts to read but it will be tomorrow before that happens so I will be behind again. Then it will be Friday and time to turn the computer off. And…I am behind responding to comments on my blog. Bear with me, be patient, I am old you know.

The Stars

He died when she was three or four but she remembers him.  He laughed and smiled a lot and sometimes she saw tears in his eyes. He told her stars were little holes in the curtains the angels closed at night and people we love who are in heaven can see us through those holes.  She knew her grandparent, her Pa, was watching her when she saw the stars at night. Now many many years later when she looks up at the night sky she knows Pa is watching her from one the starry holes.


Touch the heart softly
Sweet laughter and silent tears
Forever to miss

Stuff about me…

Friendly Fill-Ins, week 71

1. I have broken some bones.  A toe when I was a kid, my arm when I fell out of a chair (there is a story to this that involves a cat but no alcohol), my foot,  my nose twice, and a couple ribs broken while I was in the hospital getting an x-ray (another story).



2. When I go out to breakfast, I order the usual breakfast food; eggs and bacon or waffles/pancakes, or fruit crepes. Sometimes a breakfast sandwich. My favorite time to have breakfast food is at suppertime.

3. As Summer officially comes to an end I am happy to see the heat and humidity go and have some cooler weather to enjoy.


4. Before this year is over, I really need to get my home in order. There are several projects I hope to get done once the work in the kitchen (that has to be done by the pros) is finished. I really don’t want several rooms a mess at the same time so I have been putting off some things I will do myself. When the kitchen is done I don’t know what excuse I will use but I will think of something.
