"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."
Lucy Maud Montgomery

Tuesday tid-bits...


...yes, I realize it is Thursday but bear with me here for this will be the 'dazed and confused' edition of our regularly scheduled programming.






 See this girl here, she makes my world go round.  She brings joy to every life she touches.  Today when I talked to her she was busy in the 'bakery' cooking up something special for her daddy.  She is such a tender soul with a very detailed imagination.  I love her to pieces.  I also have a sweet boy that makes my heart smile but no photos allowed.  Trust me, he would knock your socks off.

This has been a rough week.  Watching friends of mine and friends/family of Fred's   turn against each other and lash out a some one they have loved and lost has been difficult for me.  I want no part of something like that, I want to remember the way I knew him and the friend he was to me and my husband.  Everyone else can deal with their own problems.  I remember when my parents passed and the conflict within the family that I never knew exsisted...I was so naive.

As I was outside earlier this evening, snipping the last of the basil, I could feel summer coming to an end.  It's in the air and soon we will be enveloped in Fall and all her loveliness.  For now though I am hoping for a little more summer.  It was so very short here, hot and humid but over too quickly.  When I saw an advertisement for S'bucks Pumpkin Latte I knew the end was near!   (btw, I've never had one.)   

"Pillow Talk," is on TCM right now.  A good movie for the way I'm feeling tonight.  Nothing too dark, or dreary.  I love Thelma Ritter, she is the actor of the day and they have been showing her movies.  I especially like her role in "Rear Window,"  she is such a feisty one.  What are you watching tonite?

Well, I've taken all the random that I can put forth today.  Hope you are all well wherever you are at, in the world, in life.  I heard a question earlier and it's stuck in there now..."how do we ever find the answers to the age old questions?"  what do you think?  are there answers to be had?   take care my friends.

celebrate..celebrate...dance to the music...


Happy Birthday to the one I laugh with, cry with, dance and sing with, to the one who listens, who celebrates everyone she loves.  To my daughter, my dearest friend, keeper of all things family.  The one whose hand I held when she came into the world and the one who will hold mine when I leave.  I love you my dear, my original punky, and the woman you have grown to be.  I hope you feel as loved today as I feel when I am with you.  mum
