life without memories is like traveling without a map or gps

It’s still dark outside with a little light peeking through the pale violet sky. From where I sit at my “roadside find” table in front of the windows with my favorite view, I can see the winds rustling through the trees. A constant shaking of the leaves, like one taking an area rug outside to…

Elementary School, Big Cookies and Milk Breaks

I can still hear the sounds of the wooden floor boards of my first elementary school (we moved when I was in the 5th grade so I actually attended two). The first one was an old country elementary school that went all the way through 8th grade. Like I mentioned the floors were wooden and…

Breakfast For Dinner and other little preferences…

It’s another rainy morning with a slight chill in the air. Breakfast is  just finished and it was delicious. We had scrambled eggs, but not too scrambled, the yellows were still a bit soft and the whites so fluffy. We had  big, fat flaky biscuits with creamy butter and strawberry and grape jellies to choose…

Two Horses and a Turkey…

Rain Barrels, Dogs, and Life

Sometime during the night I was woke up by a nose nudge of a Bull Mastiff who I can only figure wanted to make me aware of the pouring rain that had started falling. I love the sound of rain when I’m suppose to be sleeping but I’m not because I’m up listening to the…

A Whole Day Spent Outside…

Crickets, summer nights and dreams

Tonight is chilly but I know summer is just around the bend and that’s just fine with me. I love all the seasons and my favorite one is usually the one I’m in. It’s been so warm here already I can’t help but think of summer nights. Nights when the air has cooled a bit…

First Daisy Of The Season

While out on my usual walk I came across the first daisy of the season. Two in fact! With more ready to bloom. I was so excited! There they stood so tall and proud. Little while flower petal heads lifted to the Carolina blue sky. I had to do it, I had to! They called…
