Trying to get back in the swing of blogging. I've kinda missed being able to post my thoughts, musings and life events in the form of a diary, that I can refer back to and remember how I was feeling or dealing with the ups and downs of everyday life.
They say that time changes all things and over the years, since my last entry, time has changed many things for me.
I have gotten older and in some ways wiser, though my physical abilities have become lessened and the inevitable toil of aging and made it's imprint on my body. I am not as physically strong as I once was, nor am I as emotionally weak as I once was. Though in some areas I have become less social and more an introvert. Feeling less comfortable with large crowds and less tolerant of noise and chaos.
I find that I seek solitude and yet at the same time feel the need to just have a conversation that is intelligent and interesting. I am a creature of habit and contradictions, hoping to sort out my feelings and be able to embrace my identity, my dreams, my goals.... But, I find that actually putting forth the effort to make my goals become realities is just too difficult a task. Starting projects and abandoning them before completion. I need to get my self complete again. Maybe writing down my thoughts will give some insight as I return to them and read them. Maybe facing my shortcomings will help me to move beyond them and be the person that I wish to become. It is a start.

Now, we're getting somewhere!

Jerry called and got an upgrade on my computer. We figured out that I needed a little more space. He is such a sweet guy.
I went on everyone elses' blogs and stole some sweet pictures to get me started.
I thought this one would be appropriate for today.
Just a reminder that we should stop now and then, just to smell the roses. Even if they really are sunflowers and they smell more acrid than sweet and if you touch them they are itchy, and if you pick one they are sticky....well, you get the picture anyway!
If you ain't got a rose, stop and smell the big yellow weed!!!

A new computer, A new blog!

Today, my husband surprised me with a brand new purple lap top. It is small enough to fit in my purse. I love it. And I love my sweet guy for getting it for me. Be very jealous, ladies. I can't say enough wonderful things about the man who married me almost 33 years ago and if you chose to follow this blog, you will figure out why?
I think today is a good day to start everything new!
My life revolves around the joy (and humor) inspired by my family!
I can't wait to introduce them all, one, by one, by one, by one, by... oh you get the picture.
