It finally got warm out. Now we can begin summer. Blossoming and gardening can proceed. Charlotte and children walked with me yesterday. Of course the boys had to ride their bikes out ahead. When we got to our turning around point, they were picking themselves up from a "crash", which obviously hadn't amounted to much.… Continue reading Happy Stuff
If I had a big house with a grand entrance or a great hall I would add one of these to that room so that as you came in you'd see it first thing. On the other hand, I hope that we would just be this to any comers, guest or family member. It's a… Continue reading Enjoyable Work
Tomorrow is another day. New mercy. New energy. I thank God for rest this night.
Just a picture post. Words later. Please enjoy. Goodnight.
They all came back. The fancy daisies, Jacobs Ladder, lilacs, spirea, and the Gladys rose. And the beaver pond are bigger n better than ever. It's mother's day weekend.

Elv says it's a clear bright, starlit night out there. It's a cozy, fire-in-the-stoves evening in here. Oh my, but it's good to be here. We saw a moose on Cty Road 3 tonight on our way in.

It's a good plan. You'll see. There's my first and only glimpse of Mt Rainier. I was in Seattle for an hour yesterday… Continue reading Innsbruck
Mom remembers this Sunday afternoon. This is Sid and Ruth ... that first winter as a dating couple. Aren't they just so beautifully dashing? Mom pulled a couple of albums out this evening. The years are squished down into photos with a few captions. Memories. Mostly happy memories. And it all flew by so quickly!… Continue reading Swift Transition
The way that you are now is not the way that you will stay. Shaye Elliott Ted Miller said almost the same thing in a sermon. "Things will happen in your life that will change you. You'll never be the same again." I don't know why this truth startled me so. I could easily see… Continue reading The Inevitable Changes
Today had all the right things in it to make it a good Sunday. Morning church, a beautifully laid table at lunchtime, a walk in the woods, visits with Dad and Mom, a puzzle, and a sing at the piano with Brad at the end of the day. I suppose I'm a sappy mom, but… Continue reading This Good Sunday
