May 5, 2021


 Unless I can figure out how to write on here I'm afraid this is my last post.  They have made so many changes and you can tell by my last posts, I can't figure out how to do this.  So thank you dear friends  and hope to see you other places in the internet.      Diane

A Funny Thing........


 Several people I've noticed have had a change during the past year.  They've taken the time (even if they didn't know it was happening) to think about what's truly important to them and some of the things they can do without. Maybe in some odd way we grew during the pandemic.  I talk like it's over and I know it's not.  I guess the end of the year and beginning of the new one (rocky as it was) was because people always have hope.  Don't they?  I hope you have a good April and hopeful 9 months.   Diane

Comfort and Joy

It's going to be a different Christmas this year, for many of us.   I was invited to my neighbors for Christmas Eve but passed.  I'm just getting too spooked about Covid.  So it will just be Dreamer and I and I will listen to Christmas music and think about what we're really celebrating.  
How about you?  Will you spend it with your family and friends?  
I'm so happy I have you to share these Christmas wishes with and hope that whatever you do it will be
meaningful and joyous.               Warm blessings, Diane

Might As Well Be Beautiful


 Wore my new mask to the grocery store and nobody even noticed.  Amanda said "well, it wasn't supposed to be a fashion statement.  True, but I thought some of the people would at least give it a second look.  I bet if there was some little kids there, THEY would have noticed.  Stay well.  Blessings,  Diane

Crazy Wyoming Weather....




                                    
 First October is bopping along minding it's own buisness and then bang, within less than 2 weeks we have 4 winter storms.  -10 at night a couple nights and not much more than that in the daytime. The last couple days have warmed up and it's melting snow and ice everywhere.  It's heavenly.  You never know what the weather is going to do around here.  Now I'm trying to catch up on the things I needed to do before our storms.  Now where was I??????  Hope you're are making it through all this.  Tuesday will be soon and then where will we be?  Blessings to you.       Diane

Bittersweet


 A friend brought me this bittersweet and I treasure it.  She visited her sister in the Black Hills at the base of the Crazy Horse monument and they made a point of hunting for bittersweet in a place her sister knew of.  It's beautiful and aptly named.  After it freezes it turns bright orange but this hasn't yet.  

If it was outside this morning it would have frozen as it got down to 30 degrees.  I heard my neighbor scraping her windshield.  We've been having a great fall so this kind of took us by surprise.  Not Dreamer.  She loves to be outside when it's cold.  

I hope you're doing well.  I've missed doing my blog and I hope it turns out O.K.  I had a rocky start.  Take care of yourselves.  Blessings,       Diane         next one I promise you won't have to get out your magnifying glass to read it.

One More Thing.......

 I got on to check my comments and it looks like it might be a little easier than I thought.  I really

hate to leave, I've been on here for a long time, a lot of water under the bridge.

Things Have Changed.........

 Not only the world, but this blog setup.  They (!) have set up different and this is the second time I've tried to post.  So anyway........

Thank you for popping in to see what's happening with me.  Nothing.  And everything.  It's been a very hot summer as you probably know so that changes how you do things.  Hurry and do the outside things in the cool of the morning and then try to figure out what to do with the rest of your day.  Amanda and Gregg both celebrated their 50th birthday and I didn't have anything much to do with the planning, it's the state of mind that makes you feel you're involved.  

Then as half the world knows by now I got Leonard's shop and outbuildings cleaned out after 4 1/2 years so I really feel good about that.  I've read a lot of books and reread a couple.  My yard is still a shambles but hopefully there's  next year, God willing.  

I know you've been busy, too, with your life.  It's a different world and if you're like me, I hope it isn't going to stay much longer.  I liked the old one much better.  

Please take care of yourself and hope you stay happy.                Love, Diane

A Wayside Sacrament.......


Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting, a wayside sacrament.  Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower and thank God for it is as a cup of blessing.    Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happy July

I really hope this will be a good month and that we'll all have a great 4th of July.  After everything, this is a beautiful country and people have  suffered so much so that we can have this.  I plan to hang my Old Glory (I do almost every day anyway) and  have a 4th of July picnic with Dreamer.  No fireworks, not necessary.  Everybody should have a good day, the animals and veterans, too. 
                                                            Blessings, Diane

What is so rare ....

Actually, I think we have to make our rare day in June these days.  We have to look for the beauty and joy and peace and love.  Because if we don't we'll sink into the deepest depression.

My days are spent doing household things, working in the yard, sitting in my chair (from working in the yard!)  Definitely trying to avoid the news or even conversation that goes on and on about the situations we're in.

How about you?  Are you able to find the joy, to keep  up^ ?  How do you handle it?

This is a beautiful month here.  The lawns are still green and the flowers are beginning to bloom and it isn't too hot yet.  And it's my birth month and my daughter's.  But let's just have a good day right now and look for some joy.

Blessings to you,            Diane
