The interrupted post

December 30th, 2012 · No Comments

Begun on Saturday, the 29th I am sitting here resting after some dreaded houseworky stuff, drinking some iced tea and thinking about taking a shower.  I’ll be heading over to the nursing home today for a little while with the intent of getting home before it gets dark; we’re having some snow. It’s quiet here […]

Early last posting for awhile?

Six in the morning: GRANDMA! I NEED YOU! Summer announces, “I felt sick and ran to the bathroom and didn’t make it and slipped in the vomit and then . . .(something, something, something) . . . in my pants.” Okay . . . if this is is going to be the Ghost of Three […]

Potential for a story

December 20th, 2012 · 2 Comments

A lot of stories come to me through people I don’t know sharing things and a quite a few folks have told me I am good at putting these memories and feelings into words. I have found it very rewarding. But, grin, there is also another dimension to this emotions/writing thing – I tend to […]
