30 Days of Pictures I did this once before. I enjoyed finding the pictures each day, but many of the questions also made me think, sometimes about things I realized I was avoiding. Time to do it again! Tomorrow will be day 1. ~Day 0... Read more

I took today off. I tend to hibernate a bit on this day. I don't want to be around people I know for the most part. I got up at the usual time and started my day by donating blood. ... Read more

When my son and his family were here a couple of weeks ago, a friend of theirs who is starting a photography business took some pictures. I can't get the name off the photo - I am not trying to advertise her business. I just love this picture!... Read more

There has been an awful lot of turmoil in my life these past few weeks and I'm not ready to post about it all yet. One of the good things was the trip to my sister's for my mom's 80th birthday celebration. ... Read more

I have several friends with major issues in their lives right now. I am also missing my kids and grandsons terribly today (they left at 10 AM). Combined with what's going on at work, it's all got me feeling pretty down. I am working on so... Read more

Not too much going on today. Work is difficult - a very down atmosphere right now. Right now our weather matches - yet another thunderstorm. It's been a very wet summer here. I guess I'll have to force an attitude adjustment. ... Read more

Thanks for all the support on yesterday's blog. I didn't get to sleep until after midnight last night. I had today off, though, so I deliberately stayed in bed very late. I didn't sleep the whole time, but at least I got rest. I felt sic... Read more
