And So It Goes…

“So much has happened in the world… and yet, nothing is happening in

the world. We’re all waiting.”

Some time ago, on my way to work, I wished that I could work from home… this new stay at home order was not really what I had in mind. (Very small home office below.)

I’m navigating this new “normal” best as I can, best as any of us can, and keeping the faith.  I just don’t know if I’m using this time wisely.  We always want more time to do the things we want to do.  Now that I have it, I can’t seem to get motivated.

I do spend lots of time daydreaming.  Mostly when I think of fitting in the dress I bought for my son’s upcoming (October) wedding. I like to daydream that I’m the same size I was in high school. In my mind, (while I’m eating a bag of chips mind you), I’m very fit. Here’s the dress, and I look just like this person while I’m wearing it. (Don’t forget… In my mind. Oh, that’s my hair too!)

So, I’ll just sit here sipping my coffee, looking out the window, and daydreaming about better days to come.  God bless us all and keep us safe.

It’s been a while since my last post.  Not because I didn’t feel like posting.  I just couldn’t send myself photos.  I thought for sure my phone was hacked, or somebody deleted them, or maybe Russia was taking over my phone.  No such excitement though.  The problem was I typed my email in wrong.  So, somewhere out in the world wide web are my poor lost and lonely photos.  “I’ll miss you guys…”.

Now that things are back to “normal”, I can start posting again.

I give you “The Farm in Spring”

Hello Again!

I’ve been taking classes to learn blogging, and Photoshop. I’ve been vacationing.  I’ve been researching college information for my daughter.  I’ve been catching up with friends. I’ve been working in the garden.  I’ve been swimming, horseback riding, and enjoying my summer. What I haven’t been doing is blogging, and that’s ok.  I’ve been living life so that I have something to blog about.

I recently visited the Grand Canyon.  I was aw struck by the size of the canyon, but also by it’s history.

If you’ve never seen the canyon… put it on your list of things to do in life.  It’s grand!!

On My Birthday by The Libertytowner

On myyyy birthday I’m going to have a whole bunch of fun!  For the month prior to myyyy birthday, I will drive my family crazy by reminding them that it’s myyyy birthday They will probably roll their eyes and say “yes…..I know.  You’ve only told me 100 times. Enough already.” However, I will not stop.  Do you know why?  Because, it’s myyyy birthday.

So here’s the plan.  Ladies tea in the morning (some place in Glyndon.) Then, I’m off to ride my horse.  Next the family and I are going to dinner at Brewer’s Alley, downtown Frederick. And then we’re going on a spooky, ghost tour walk of historic Frederick.

I am looking forward to learning the sketchy history behind some of the old buildings in Downtown Frederick.  I’m very excited about spending quality time with my family and friends.  I can’t wait to get a meal that I didn’t have to cook.  Do you know why?

Because….it’s myyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy birthday 😉

I’ll see you soon (unless the spooks get me first 😮
