Almost Sad

Hello me darlins,

I hope you are well. Tis morning here and guessing must be bout dinnertime for you so hope it was good. The sun no longer rises by 6am and sets quicker. The leaves are really starting to quicken the pace of turning color and I'm not ready for winter. No amount of stomping my feet will stop the passage of time though and I must learn to tend to each chore that needs to get to done before winter. (sigh) Joys of the single parent. :)

I have at least started buying Christmas gifts. Stock up now so I don't have to worry about last minute gifts. Now that's a relief. Last minute shopping during the Christmas rush is totally nuts. It is amusing to see people stop and stare at each other for the last item on a shelf and one does concede to the other with grace. I can't really say that about parking though, wow.

Hockey season has started and my boys kick me off the T.V. and banish me to the computer so they can watch a game with their favorite team, Toronto Maple Leafs. I don't mind though because their smiles and joy are priceless.

I did not get to go out berry picking this season. It's not recommended that one goes out by themself and my boys have been busy with school and homework. Joys of going back to school and their favorite item, homework. Anyways, I won't keep you as I know you are busy but will leave this to ponder ---> You might have been a child in the 80’s if ... you spent endless nights dreaming about being the Bionic Woman or Wonder Woman or the Six Million Dollar Man.. Please take care and stay safe.

Let's Migrate

Hello my Darlins,

Well, I got woken up this morning with a loud bunch of honking. The Canadian Wild geese are heading south. Even the dogs were jumping up and about barking at them and that's a silly sight. I mentioned my spider scare already too, yeah, really should take a look at the root of my arachnophobia some day but I stand by what I had said, they just don't have a place in my house. I don't know what they have to eat anyways, I vacuum, sweep n mop my floors and there are no ants or other insects. Least not that I have seen.

I went to the store last night and there's a section of the road that was in utter darkness. I was nervous walking along that section and hoping I didn't break my foot in a pothole again or see a bear. I really should in invest in a nightscope, can you imagine me with one of those? yes, a plain flashlight would work too but the road usually isn't in complete darkness like that. I walk because it's not far and is good for me.

A phone call came in this past weekend. My sons are teasing me about the guy who called and saying,' Mom has game.' I'm not sure if that's a good thing or what and they just laugh when I ask. I also saw a meteor. Wow! it seemed really close. I saw a quick flying flash, looked up and saw a streak of light then big burst of light. It was beautiful. So fast and wow! such beautiful sights available and poof! gone in flash. Fly by beauty?

I was thinking of planting some flower bulbs but there's so many squirrels and those moles. Not sure what would be best. I really got to learn about gardening. I can handle indoor houseplants no problem and managed to keep some lilies outside. I even had a Euchanasia bed till the dogs ate the flower heads. Very annoying finding that scene.

Well, I must be off and running. I will leave this for you --> When life seems like an uphill climb, take comfort in the fact that you're mooning everyone behind you. For now, I wish you a most pleasant evening, take care, please stay safe, sweet dreams and bid you Bonsoir mon cherz.

You Can Take My Breath Away

Hi My Darlings,

I am taken aback in surprise and delighted to find roses in my email. I am left smiling and suddenly feeling shy, silly huh? as you are far away and over yonder and I'm here yet such a simple act of sending these roses, says a lot about you. Thank you so much.

I spend my days smiling when I think about or look at that rose and all the others. I even have one taped up on the wall next to your picture along with a few others. I am currently listening to this song which has a verse, here ;

All I want is a place in your heart to fall into
All I need is someone to love
And tonight it's you, tonight it's you

A favorite verse which crosses my mind now and again when I sit outside gazing at the stars before bed. I will close my eyes and imagine you gazing at the stars, walking under the same sun, moon, light and skies even if we are on different points of the earth. I keep you in my thoughts and my heart, never far.

I would love to start a rose garden most likely those climbing rose bushes. I did find this one rose, once upon a time and I fell in love. It's called a 'St. John' rose and the size of a dinner plate! The aroma is breath taking. Mind you, I don't have a green thumb with planting roses and a task on my To-Do list, 'Learn how to grow Roses'. I want one that will be beautiful and knock people over with their smell. Do you think dogs would eat those too?

I know when it is night here that you are ahead a few hours and most likely in daylight. My last minute prayers go out to you before I head back indoors and I whisper softly ' Good night my darlings, God keep you safe.'
