Musings and memories of a country woman.

Sweet Memories


Today is the anniversary of my Mom’s death. While the loss of a loved one never really gets “easy” it certainly becomes easier to recall happier times and to find peace in fond memories of them. Thanksgiving was one of...

One More Thing...


Just to complicate our life a bit more, Gary has been in the hospital since late Friday. He is receiving great care and we are praying for a positive outcome. In the meantime the moving must continue, so I’m still...

Fifteen Days


We picked up the keys for our new house yesterday. Now the real work begins: cleaning, packing, and organizing here; cleaning, unpacking, organizing, and adjusting there. Traveling back and forth at least once a day, perhaps twice since we need...

Planning-Purging-Packing-Pressing on…


We found a house this week and plan to start moving after the 15th. Whew! A relief of course, but also a challenge now to get everything done. You know I’ve “been there, done that”, but each move is a...



This week I’ve been reading the school news for 1947-49, the years that my mother went to high school. She didn’t graduate because she got married when she was a junior and Dad was a senior. Shortly after he graduated...
