It has already been chilly enough recently, I wore a wool hat a couple of times last week. AndiIt is just now the last day of summer.  I remember the first year I was in New York, we went to my husband's nephew's farm--a couple of hours south of us-- for a pig roast in mid-August and camped out a couple of nights.  It got down into the 40's both nights and we were freezing all night long; mid-August. That funny little hand knit skirt I was making last week for Sweet Pea is finished now, but she didn't want...

A September 11 remembrance

339000 9/11 faith family Life love personal September 11 Septemer 11 spirituality

Today we sang "America The Beautiful" in church; it is impossible for me to sing that song without crying.

Read my blog on Kindle. I have lived here just over five years, started writing my blog five years ago in early August.  It is circumstantially strange, but the blog inevitably became an integral part of marriage.  I suppose it is conceivable it will always be that way.  None of us know how long this blog relationship may last, it is brand new territory for us all after all. It's funny, because I can go back and see what we were up to on or about this date back at the beginning of our marriage, and see more clearly how...
