Diamond Dew Drops

Finally found this picture to post again. I was leaving the house one day and when I turned the curve the sunlight was shining on this web as though diamonds were hanging on it-quite a sight to see, simple and beautiful. Photo taken December 19, 2007.

New Cards this week

Back to making cards and enjoying it again. Only making what I need for right now and popping them in the mail quickly. Here are two of my latest creations.

Passing of time and other things

From March to August is a long time to not be around my blog, I've looked at it, didn't know what to say then moved away from it for a time. To lose my Daddy in April has been hard. I know I'm not the only person but I'm not really worried about others now, it's about me and my hurt. Days go by and I smile, days come upon me and tears come for no reason except it hurts. I like the smiling best. The grandchild I will never see is hard for me but it's harder for my daughter and her husband and that hurts me more as I can't 'fix' it for them or take away the hurt. She is doing better, I'm doing better so I believe the world will go on. I believe my Daddy is rocking that precious child and singing one of the songs he used to sing to us. He will take care of this baby so well, thank you Daddy.

I plan to start back to blogging and posting pictures of artwork, animals, things I like and idle chatter, too. More to come on this adventure.

The Beauty of Spring

A nice coating of yellow is beginning to cover everything as the pollen floats through the air. The windows are open to let in the breeze and I can hear the birds singing and watch them eating from their feeders, love it! I found a couple of blooms on one camellia bush that are gigantic so I picked them along with some regular sized ones to take some photos this morning. I like them and I am really the only person today that I am trying to please, another of those days!!! What's not to like about pretty flowers, crockery and old books? Enjoy

A Long Day to Deal With

Going to see your Daddy and Momma should have an element of fun or joy in it, and in the big sense of the world it did have the fun and joy of seeing them together.Daddy wasn't quite sure of who Momma was but was glad she was there to sit with him. He smiled when Donna and I brought in his hot plate of cornbread dressing, turkey, green peas with carrots. He ate a few bites of turkey and maybe a bite of dressing and some of his Coke and he was done, that was all he wanted.Momma came back maybe 30 minutes later and we all chatted for a bit. Later Donna, Pat and I went to Momma's house to have our turkey dinner and discuss the talk I had with Momma earlier-Daddy being admitted into the nursing home part of the hospital on Monday, March 10, 2008 . This has been one of my tougher days and I can look out and see more coming my way. I feel scared, but I know I will have support and be able to get a handle on it. Thankfully I just replenished the Kleenex -a needful thing. I'm lucky to have had Momma and Daddy healthy for so very long.
Photo from April 2007 in their backyard at home, almost a year before this story took place.

An Observation Early On

I guess I'm going to be putting photos on for a while. I've taken some I'm pretty proud of and think I'll share those here until I start stamping something or making something new. Maybe tomorrow the weather will be just yucky enough and overcast to get some pictures in the morning, who knows what I'll find on the way to see Momma and Daddy.

The Big Test

Thanks to my bff and running buddy, Jimmie, I now have a blog. Now I have to figure out what to do with it. To make it sound like I know what I am doing I will run this first post as a test to see what goes where and when and specifically how it gets there.
