Today a 93 year old woman asked me if I dyed my hair.
 I let her know I did and I asked her why she wondered.
She said "I would have felt sorry for you if it were natural!" 
Ha ha ha! The wisdom of age!!...Or not!
The poor little lady I am sure hadn't see a comb for sometime.
That however didn't stop her from being DARLING!

Spring has sprung! The popcorn is popping!
I no longer have a head cold! (mostly)
Life is good! Even though life is good doesn't mean it isn't hard!
I am reading this great book (above).
It is about finding happy in the unhappy!
Finding joy in the lonely!
Everyone needs a dose of "keep going"
every now and then!
Check it out!!

I have been really on my death bed ill! I have
felt poorly for count them FIVE days now.
I moan and groan and lay around and feel awful!
I would honestly scream if I thought it would help.
 I don't because I think it would make me feel worse!
I really feel bad! I CAN'T SMELL OR TASTE PEOPLE!!
Then I read blogs like this! Or read on face book how a friend
has to leave her family for months while her bone marrow is replaced!
 And said friend may never get better!

Then I am ok...suddenly "wellish!"
I'll just look forward to the grape hyacinths!

March is marching!

*I have the worlds worst chest cold!
 I feel like Hulk Hogan is standing ON my chest!
*I often dream of a world w/ out a time card..
and the last few days have been boring as HECK!
*I get dry skin at the edge of my finger nails and then I pull it
and it hurts crazy fierce!
*I have started the yearly growing of wheat grass!
*I yearn for a GOOD yard sale!!
*I needa make some homemade chalk paint!!
*Today the temperature was DREAMY!!
*I may just cough my spleen out!
*The nephew is dew in 1 month and 2 days!

Happy March!

Once upon a time...

My grandparents lived here. Lots of magically things happened here.
Collecting acorns, running down the long and step drive way.  (to the north)
Walking down the street to "the trampoline lady's house". Sleeping on the back patio.
Listening to the LOUD crickets! Sleeping under the pool table. Looking out at the city
lights and dreaming that they were a treasure trove of jewels. Getting family pictures on the "kissing rock". Eating granola and drinking Tang. Aweee the memories!!

Little Ladies!

Miss I who is in my primary class often brings up "Dhosts".
I often remind her "I don't like to talk about ghosts because they scare me".
Trying to lead the conversation into more kids friendly topics!
Today Miss J looked Miss I right in the face and stated "I know there is only one
TRUEEE ghost and it is the Holy Ghost!"
Miss I didn't bring it up again!!
