I appreciate all the visits and comments you have left on my blog. It's very nice of you to take time out of your busy day to visit me...please come back again soon! If this is not what you're looking for. Move along. This is my little soapbox.

Oh Deer

This is what I saw from my kitchen window this morning. Taken with a cheap point and shoot camera on zoom thru the window.  Still it is very beautiful.  The Wabash River in July.

Still around

I am battling  a wicked case of the blahs and I now have a canker sore on the side of my tongue.  Pretty, huh? I am sure I will sprout a few hairy warts on my nose by the end of the day.

All this brings to mind an obituary I read the other day, for a 68 year old woman.  Her daughter wrote that she "passed into her next dimension" with her family at her side.  And that since her mother "claimed that she was going to live to be 180, they were all understandably shocked."  For this reason I have already written my obit. Silly as that may sound.

Free Time

Thought I would take a minute and show you what I do in my free time. I was turned onto this by a friend and started doing it and have found such satisfaction and comfort in them.  They are called Prayer Shawls and are any color and stitch combination.  We make the shawls, then the Prayer team at church prays over them and passes them out to any one who is in need. Need can be anything from diagnosis of disease  to a death in the family. My last group of them went to the nursing home.  Where 5 lovely people were comforted. ( I have done this for several years and will always accept donated yarn. It takes about 12 oz per shawl.)  In the  photo are the latest recipients. I removed the names.        You can read about it HERE

Matter of time

I come from a long line of long lived women. My great grandmother Strong lived to well over 100 years.  My Grandmother Frazier lived to the ripe old age of 104.
My mother suffered a stroke in June and she then turned 94 on the 15th. 
She took a turn for the worse last Friday.
It is just a matter of time now.
