Dear Friends

Thank you so much for your comments about retirement.  I guess it will be another Season of my life and will embrace it as it is better than the inevitable.  I wanted to share pictures of nature and some of these pictures I am most proud of.  The swallow tails which I hope I have named them correctly are my pride and joy they keep coming back year after year and I am so glad I get to be their lunch partner.  Bees, well we all know we need these in our lives and a picture of my cherry tree in my back yard, it was a seedling and now towers my house and provides shade year after year and a beautiful pink snow in the Spring.  The full double rainbow, well it was a long Friday and I was leaving my job "I Love To Hate" and it was magical standing right under the glow, I will never forget it.

She's Retired

Dear Friends

Some people would say, I'm at the age I should be thinking about retirement.  I looked up the meaning: the action or fact of leaving ones' job and ceasing to work.  Let me be the first to tell you, I will never cease to work.  If you cease to work, you die or die soon.  This life doesn't prepare you enough for the beginning of work or ceasing to work.  This is my opinion but if you have retired or intend to retire, I commend you, I also wish you a healthy and happy retirement.  Please let me know, I need input.

Sweet Summertime

Hi Friends

I hope you are having a wonderful July 4th! So many fun times and memories for this holiday for me and my family.  Although we are not together I will assure you they are in my heart, my brother Michael a beautiful soul who loved children, but left this world giving and kind.  My mom was the heart of our family making sure her grandchildren had everything their hearts desired, my best freind, I miss you both.


Dear Friends

I hope this post finds you healthy and happy!  My Friday Goodwill Find is this pretty Homer Laughlin platter.  Today it's perfect for displaying some of my crystal salt shakers with pretty roses.

Lighten Bug

Dear Friends

Happy Summer!  Does being outside make you happy! As I mentioned, my husband started a new job, he is on night shift, ugh!!!  So, you are probably wondering why lighten bugs?  When I get off work at 7:00, I come home, change and usually walk thru my garden, sit in my rocking chair and wait for the lighten bugs to appear.  I do other things just leading up to the blog title, LOL!  I've been so fascinated, why, they take me back to my childhood, when kids played out side, remember, hide and seek, red light, green light, Mother May I, do you remember?  There is another bucket list for me to see the annual lighten bug appearance in TN!  It's so popular it's seen by lottery only, about 2000 people can attend and over 20,000 apply.  Not going to happen this year and if anyone has done this will you please let me know?
