Christmas Time

I love Christmas. I love the lights, the decorations, and the gifts. Most of all I just love the feel of Christmas. It is a celebration of the birth of Christ. This is the most important and oft forgotten reason for the season. Life just has a cozier and warmer feel when Christmas rolls around. So "Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight".

Dog Days

The "dog days' of summer are finally here. After having 1 years worth of rain in six months it is nice to have some dry weather and some heat. Now we have had our fill of both and they can leave.

I have spent May, June and July mostly doing my favorite things. Having some of my children around, having time with my grandson, watching the deer and other wildlife "sneak" into the yard for their favorite snacks. I have also done some of those things that I did not like mostly dealing with the state and federal government but that is over, so now I am back doing what I enjoy.

I have learned many things since January 1 of 08 and expect to learn many more before January 1st of 09. I already knew that there is a price for raising independent free thinking children and I would gladly pay that price again because I love to hear their tales of life and see them happy doing what they do.

So here is to the second half of 2008. May it be as fulfilling as the past.

The Good The Bad & The Ugly

I have to admit I love weather. Not just the sun is shining, the skies are blue weather but weather in general. I am particularly drawn to thunderstorms. I love a good thunderstorm. The lightning, wind and rain can fascinate me for hours. I am riveted to the TV following the brightly colored screens that are ever evolving. I can sit on the porch counting the distant of the last lightning strike and not mind at all that I am getting soaked. I know that thunderstorms frighten people and cause untold monetary damages. I know from first hand experience that thunderstorms are not all fun and games. I have Meniere's disease. There is something in a good thunderstorm that causes me to have some pretty severe vertigo attacks. Some expert just scoff at me and tell me that there is no correlation, "it is all in my head" (pun) and others just say that it is the sudden drops and rises in barometric pressure. I don't care I know that when a thunderstorm is approaching I can tell. So for now I will just take some extra meds, to try to keep my vertigo in control, and grab my camera and settle in for another spectacular lightning show.

Me Bad

Well, as a blogger I am a total failure. The winter has come and gone with out one single blog from me. Not that it is important that I blog for as far as I know I am the only one who reads it. I like it that way because I have only my self to please. Spring is here in all it's glory and warmth and I love it.
