Yellowstone, still day 1, Bozeman
Monday, August 25, 2014      6 comments

We landed in Bozeman, and gathered our luggage, only to find out the 18 year old girls luggage had gone on a further vacation. She was not a happy camper. Steve and Melanie, the alpha male and female of our pack, got the vans, we loaded luggag... Read more

I haven't had a chance to talk to any of the family yet this weekend, but did talk to an in-law of the family who has been keeping very close touch. The pneumonia is gone! I know it's been the prayers, and I thank all of you. I'll update agai... Read more

Late last week, the son of friends of ours was critically injured in a farming accident. He has a crushed shoulder, every rib on his right side is broken and puncturing his lungs. His pelvis is crushed as is his hip. He is in critical conditi... Read more
SUNSHINE!
Friday, February 04, 2011      2 comments

The sun is shining this morning, making it look like someone has scattered millions of diamonds across the still pristine snow. There are no deer or bunny tracks marking the surface, and it is just so beautiful. I feel a lifting of my spirit, ... Read more
Rest in Peace Linda
Thursday, February 03, 2011      9 comments

I'm sitting here with tears running down my face. Sweet Linda passed away Tuesday night. She is finally at peace, with none of the horrible pain she has been living with for days and weeks. I'm crying because she's gone, yet I wouldn't wish h... Read more

Going to get my shots!
Tuesday, December 28, 2010      6 comments

I'm excited. I start the series of shots for my knee on Tuesday, and I'm really hoping they work. I can't do much walking, can't go near the treadmill, stairs do me in, etc etc, right now. Hopefully within a few weeks, I'll have one good work... Read more
LOOKING FORWARD TO 2011
Sunday, December 26, 2010      6 comments

It's been a while since I blogged anything, and like most of you, I've had my ups and downs. I thought I was doing well handling the depression this year, and a couple weeks ago, I hit bottom. Thank God for friends, family, and some God-sent s... Read more
Thanks to my great friends....
Tuesday, September 07, 2010      8 comments

When I blogged last month, I was really feeling down and yucky. I'd given up on myself, decided I was destined to spend the rest of my life fat and tired, but it seems I have some friends out there that won't let me quit, won't let me be depres... Read more
I'm tired and discouraged
Thursday, August 19, 2010      8 comments

Seems the only time I blog is when I'm down. Here I am again. Lately, I've even lost my "oomph" to try to get the blood sugar and the weight under control. I have to go back to the Drs. soon, and my weight hasn't gone down any, and my blood g... Read more
New Beginnings, or Just More of the Same?
Sunday, January 10, 2010      11 comments

Everyone says it's a new beginning. Have you changed anything, done things differently, that you were, say, two weeks ago? Or are you saying it's a new beginning, and continuing to do the same ole things. That's me, unfortunately. I still ne... Read more
Goofy weather
Wednesday, January 06, 2010      7 comments

I think everyone, everywhere, is having goofy weather right now. I looked out the window this morning, and instead of more snow, we have 1/2 an inch of ice on everything. Welcome to winter in PA! Did go out with the camera, and took a few... Read more

Just ventured out, and waded in snow to my hips, to take this one. We have about 45 inches of snow, some deeper, o... Read more
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snoooow.

Decided to blog a little today, and show you my yard...LOL It's snowed non-stop for several days, and there is snow in the forecast every day the rest of the week, at least! Our driveway was plowed at 5 this morning and there is already 6 or 8... Read more
