Today is the day that we all need to stop and think. Not about how thankful we are (although that is very important as well) but about how we are.Continue reading “Today’s The Day”
Time rushes madly on
Seconds tumble by
As the leaves rustle
Harvest beckons us all
Moon glows amber
Each day I do take time to stop and appreciate all that I have and am. Challenges continue to arise and Covid continues to throw its weight around in our area so we are keeping a low profile. I won’t say it’s a quiet life as harvest, teaching and family commitments have kept me busy. Blogging time has been very minimal and I am behind in reading other blog posts as well.
Hope all is well in your worlds. I hope to be back more regularly one of these fine days.
If I had been on the ball last night I would have linked this to the #Sundaystills hosted by Terri again over at https://secondwindleisure.com/2021/09/26/sunday-stills-signs-of-autumn-spring/. Better late than never I guess!
The setting, the company, the love, the joy. No words needed.Continue reading “Wordless Wednesday Walk”

It won accolades from the young lass. It had, after all, been her idea and strangely enough not something I would ever have thought of. So it’s not surprising that she uttered the following sentence.Continue reading “Who Knew?”
I’ve used the basis of these words “silver lining” for a title before but this particular time they actually are in reference to a song title and not a perspective on life. I also stuck a pronoun in front of it because I want to make it personal. How these words affect my life and what my silver lining is and has been for the last 40+ years.Continue reading “SundayStills My Silver Lining”
That didn’t work out well at all. I didn’t manage to accomplish either of my goals in any kind of timely fashion. So… now do I just scrap it or hit publish rather late and without it being “perfect”?Continue reading “#Sundaystills Bee Kind”
I heard an interesting interview on CBC. The University of Arizona is seeking poetry submissions about how the vaccine has made us feel. So below is my version using a couple of the suggested prompts. I’ve had this in my draft file for a while and just reworked it to reflect new feelings and, sadly, the current world situation.Continue reading “Dear vaccine”
The theme this week is geometry. Which lead me to right angle triangles and trigonometry and how that was NOT my thing. At all. But, and it’s a good but, my best friend totally got it. So much so that she taught it to me, one of many reasons I still love her. Not surprising that she ended up as a high school math teacher; one that students gave many accolades to.Continue reading “#Sundaystills shapes”
