Life Writing's | Spilling the Tea on a Cold Fall Evening

It has been a day.  One I probably should end by watching TV and decompressing, quietly, with only the green glow from my desk lamp and the flickers of light from the muted TV.  But...

Life Writing | A Day in the Pumpkin Patch

Perhaps silly of me to say, I know...I understand, but this is a hard week for us with Friday marking another years anniversary of losing our Angeline and this visit to our favorite farm's pumpkin patch and being out and around all of this it ...renewed my soul....just a smidge.   It does not get easier - Look at that face, so full of life... But I try to still do those things we all did together as a family. ( The photo above was her last pumpkin patch visit ).

I walked beneath the bluest sky dappled with puffy, white clouds feeling the suns warmth on my face...through rows and rows of orange wonder with a fall chill in the air. 

It was wonderful. It was a good day.

Life Writing | Rain, rain go away...and take the Tornadoes with you!

You know that old saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."  Currently, the saying here would be, " When Life gives you Rain...build an ark."

Over the past few months, the weather here feels more like Mother Nature is tearing pages out of the Weather Channels Guide to Natural Disasters to see just what would happen if I did this... page.

I have lived here all of my life and while there have been a few terrible things that have happened weather-wise, things of late have me quite concerned.
