Before and After

It's on it's way.  Predicting the first snowfall of the season, all our local channels are grabbing everyone's (including mine) attention with the impending storm.  The grocery stores were jammed.  Schools are cancelling after school activities.  Hardware stores are watching snow shovels march out the door accompanied by bags of salt.

Meanwhile here it's quiet.  The Pres is calmly sitting in his chair, telling me "it doesn't take long to hook up the snow plow to the ATV".  And me?  Hoping to get a little exercise, I've dusted off the snowshoes.


However, it's early.  I still have several hours to investigate another new lead.  Later...

Fitting In

It was another week of "Nana Duty" this past week.

Of course, ever since Harley Jean arrived 8 months ago, I also get to babysit her.  With a ferocious bark, she is one strong and powerful dog.  Yet it is her loving nature that made me invite her to celebrate  Thanksgiving with us this year.








Like all dogs, she has her favorite things.  One of them is a blanket I passed on to them (a gift from my BFFs many, many years ago when I had my German Short-Haired Pointer, Kiera Von Pooh).
 

When my grand daughter and I are on the couch in the den, Harley gazes up at us and seems to be saying PLEASE...PLEASE CAN I GET UP THERE WITH YOU?  I KNOW I CAN FIT.  Now weighing in at 70 lbs, she thinks she's tiny!!

Another Bump In The Road

Each and every "bump" I've encountered has made me who I am.
  Like you, not only am I grateful for all those "bumps," but also what they taught me.


Over all the paths I've traveled during my life, there have been numerous lumps and bumps.  Like all of you, a lot were rough.  A lot were purposeful.  All had meaning in one way or another... and some were scary.  One of my more recent bumps in the road went like this...





Sleeping soundly in their luxurious king size bed, their cat,"Tuna," and I seemed to form an immediate bond.  In fact, the bed was so comfortable and cozy, I didn't even want to get up to go to the bathroom.  

However, that 16 oz cup of Chamomile tea I had after supper was pressing on my bladder.  Throwing back the covers, and swinging my legs over the edge of the bed, I began walking slowly toward the bathroom door although still half asleep. 

Bumping into the corner of the doorway, when I stepped backward to preposition myself, I stepped on something....something soft...something furry...something  squishy!  Groping for the light switch, this is what was there.
