As I See It

Family time was spent sorting photos
My brothers came for a visit on Sunday. The younger one, David, and his wife, Apryl, unloaded several totes full of pictures they had been storing since Mom died. My other brother, Michael, and his wife, Diane, joined in as we went through the boxes.
Day after is good for sales and planting
Today is one of my favorite days. It is the day that all the leftover Easter candy goes on sale.
Flower flats bring flood of memories
I made the mistake of pushing my cart through the newly-opened garden department of a nearby store. Most of it was bare but tucked into a corner were tiny blue and yellow flowers. I touched the soft petals and was instantly lost in a memory.
Chores change, but life continues on
In a few short days we will celebrate our wedding anniversary. A couple of weeks ago, when my husband had his heart attack, I wasn’t sure he would be here to celebrate with me.
Husband is healing after heart attack
“Get up! You have to take me to the hospital right now!” That was how I was awakened last Monday morning by my husband who was sitting crumpled up on the side of the bed.
Signs of spring are different for everyone
We made it through another strange winter. Thankfully, it was warmer than usual, although the grey skies did nothing to alleviate the winter doldrums.
Fiber Fest had activities, entertainment
This past weekend I attended our local Fiber Fest. It bills itself as a celebration of the fiber arts. I think that is a rather ambiguous description of the scope of the event.
Differences in others should be cherished
What makes flowers bloom? Why do they bloom? Why are there so many different shapes and colors?
Birthdays and babies are celebrated
My sister-in-law, Sue, received the best present ever last week.
There are all kinds of magic in the world
“I’m sorry my son turned you into a frog . . .” is how my daughter, Beth, recently began a text to her youngest son’s kindergarten teacher.
Getting old helps you gain perspective
I am now officially old. As of Sunday, I qualify for every discount given to old people. I also qualify for Medicare.
Comfort of socks has improved with time
Socks. For some reason almost every pair of socks I put on last week had holes in them by the time I took them off in the evening.
Hiding in books helps her avoid the past
I finally sorted and put away much of the paperwork I brought home from Mom’s last year.
Working outdoors perked up her mood
January is almost over. Paperwhite daffodils are blooming merrily in their containers and filling the house with the sweet smell of spring.
Plans can change at a moment’s notice
It has been said that man plans and God laughs. This past weekend illustrated that perfectly.
