Memorial day stories from Vetrans History Project.

Standard

Library of Congress has a Website about stories from Veterans. I thought this was a cool Website where you can read stories about past Veterans. We are also taking fresh-cut lilac flowers to the cemetery Monday. It’s been raining all week-end which is transitional weather for this time of year. The sun should come out in all it’s glory, Tuesday taunting the people as they go back to work or are coming in from their camping trips. It’s been good weather for me to focus on getting some cleaning done. Little by slow, I’m seeing some progress as things are getting a little more organized. It sure feels food to capture back a table or two.

Finger Painting, Music and My TODO list.

Standard

Looking for something fun to do this week-end? How about finger painting? I found this link the other day and I thought that she did a nice job with it, putting together information and inspiring a person to dip in or delve into Art. Actually it’s been awhile since I’ve done any panting. I think my main creative focus has been taking pictures and blogging. I haven’t finger painted since, well probably since I was 5 or 6. I’m probably over due, could be a fun out-door project. I like to paint with music on, Navar likes to paint as well maybe I can get him to join me in some painting fun. I know we will probably go to the Cherry Blossom Festival, eat pie and listen to outdoor music, I’m looking forward to that. I have a huge TO DO list Mow the lawn, first time this year, fill the hummingbird feeder,weed the small garden,pick up poop, just seeing if your still reading. Hopefully I can fit all this in this into the week-end. Do you have a huge TO DO list for Spring cleanup? Well, I’ll see you back here Monday, same Bat channel same Bat time. Hope you have a busy and fun week-end!

Blog Hopping

Standard

Super cute video at TripinwithRip Blog. A very unique, creative, and fun blog. If you are in for some smiles hop on over to my friends Lynn an Rip’s. Check out this cute video “Breakfast at Ginger’s” at their blog. Another little hop if you’re in the mood is to S.L.e’s blog her blog very creative and unusual. Once you’ve arrived, scroll down a little bit and move your mouse over the mail slot, once probably won’t be enough. You can also catch a little Monte Python as well. She is on vacation with her husband celebrating their anniversary so maybe let her know you stopped by, leave a little note on your way out. So when she comes home she will have some extra sweet faces staring back at her. It’s a small silly surprise but isn’t that what we are looking for small silly surprises. Let me know if you have any blog hopping ideas for next Wednesday.

Sick Dog

Standard

Good Morning! Coffee hasn’t kicked in yet. I slept in this am,  my dog was sick last night I was up off and all night as was she. She has Addison’s disease, she was diagnosed a couple of years ago. It’s something that with a fair amount of medication is pretty treatable. She does pretty well most of the time except for every once in a while she gets sick for a few days to a week.Poor kid. Of course she is super smart and super cute, did I mention how smart she is? If you have a pet or have had a pet than you know how dear they can be to our lives. Here’s a link if your curious about Addison. Maybe I’ll post a picture of her too.

Our Dog Sniffs The Morning Air

Our Dog Sniffs The Morning Air Last Summer

Let see tomorrows  Saturday, so if your working today have a wonderful weekend and I’ll hopefully see you on Monday . I wish we could have a real WordPress party, wouldn’t that be fun like a convention center party  or something where people came from all over the word and you could wear a little blogger badge. Like mine would be name is Starlachat. Anyway I’ll do my best with what is ,which is, I’m in Montana, Winters winding down, I’ll probably do a little cross country skiing today the sun’s out. When the suns out it’s always a Celebration as there are a fair amount of gray days. I think Monday I will post a crab cake recipe that I saw Paula D and Al Rouker make on the Today show. Boy they sure had a case of the giggles while they were cooking. I might look for some music to post on Monday as well just cause. If I can figure out how to do that. Any way Have a Great Day. If you watch the Oscars have fun with that and stop by on Monday to say Hi and  don’t forget your name badge. I’m silly huh oh well I yam what I yam! Oh feel free if you feel like it , to post recipes or music links .Thanks.

Making peace with past hurts.

Standard

Yesterday I felt like taking my toys and going home. Bloggers tantrum.Nobody like me. OK I have one friend actually two Doraz and Gary thank you both for that I sure appreciate that. As a kid I use to move from school to school never really time to fit in, I was on to the next school. Funny I have another blog and had 54 views huh blogging is funny once you think you have the stats figured out it changes. As I get older the thought of why, why carry around emotional baggage that’s so old, so hurtful and really has no function. A few old family baggage hurts.Why? Habit? Do some pains become a part of my persona? How sad. As I get older the desire to make peace with it all even the parts that hurt the worst. I realize what I make peace with becomes freedom. I feel. Less encumbered and as I get older the desire for freedom, joy, peace are strong. I think maybe it’s like going to the dentist, I was terrified of going to the dentist but recently going and having  some much needed  dental work was extremely difficult but in the end healthy, freeing and exhilarating. I thinking being willing to let go of past hurts and things that knot up the stomach, in the long run can be freeing and who knows maybe like the dentist exhilarating in the long run. Like Rocky running up the steps. I will ponder this thought.

Contuining News Room Romance Saga.

Standard

Tuning into the nightly news ,first the national than our local. Waiting for the last part,when the young brunette news girl and the new young sports caster sit next to each other for  a  little polite news room chit chat before signing off for the night. Immediately I noticed, his warm smile a slight lean in to her. And her shoulder slightly tilted away from him. What? What’s going on she looks shut down, he’s  still sparking, she has pulled her love in close to herself. Something has happened , what? Why has she pulled away? She looks forlorn, like a lost hungry puppy. Her big brown eyes sad and quiet. Now normally the beginning stages of Love there’s the run away ,run together no it’s to scary run and hide game. I know I played a little of that before  succumbing to cupids arrow. But what has happen to our sweet young news room kids? Has he received a letter, a job offer to a bigger demographic? Or an office rumor circling, un true in nature only her ears where privy too?  Alone in  a small mountain town. Valentines day just around the corner what a disastrous ending to such a promising romance. After work , driving to her small apartment, she stops her car at a 7-ll type gas station to pick up a Stoffers tuna casserole , a microwavable box of comfort.  No energy to muster up to cook, not tonight. It will be a late night of TV. How ironic looking forward to watching  the bachelor on Monday night, it’s what she does on Monday’s. She also grabs a big box of ultra soft tissues. Getting back slowly  into her car for the short ride home.  Knowing it will be a long night if not many long nights from here on out until he fly’s away.

All characters appearing in this work are fictitious.Any resemblance to real persons,like our local news casters is purely coincidental.
