Mother Nature’s Mid-February NH Gift

Well, you know who saw his shadow. Six more weeks of winter!

Mother Nature played along!

I awoke to find her gift…

Looking out my front door.

Looking out my windshield, while warming up the Jeep.

Stratton Mtn way in the background.

Snowplow scraping the snow and ice from the road.

Route 12 headed downtown.

❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

Morning snowflakes

Freshen the look

Of trees, roadways

And the backyard brook.

❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

Kind Regards and looking forward to spring -K

Insomnia fun?

Saturday’s are my, “let the week go” day.

Often I meander through the day in a haze after an almost sleepless Friday night.

I’m trying some new tricks to change that.

Going to bed earlier on Friday, keeping a regulated sleep schedule. Visualization of blue skies, sunshine along with some “head start” odds and ends housework.

It’s an uphill climb, but I am gaining! 💃

A trick my daughter taught me – using Dawn.

Simply put a touch, in water, in a sticky sauce pan and heat on low.

This makes for easier clean up.

My results from yesterday.

Attack of the bubble monster? Ha! Ha!

The good news! Not only did it work fabulously for easy clean up, but it also gave me a giggle and a photo op!

What more could a gal ask for?

#winning!!

Is it only a NH country bumpkin that can appreciate such simple self-entertainment?

Kind Regards, dishes done and still chuckling -K

So Long My Sweet

Through two generations

Of dogs you’ve trained.

And seeing the kids go from

High school to college and

Off to war and back.

You held out your paw

To reassure.

Hey mom,

No worries,

I’ve got your back.

Almost 20 years

We road life’s waves,

And I knew that you

Would let me know

Whence you were tired

And needed to go.

That you did

My sweet purring babe.

As promised

I took you for

Your last earthly ride.

I held you close

And sang our songs,

Whispered Praises

In your ear.

I love you always

See you soon.

Give hugs to all

At the Rainbow’s Bridge,

My sweet Celina,

So precious and dear

Run free and

Feel  after life’s glow.

For all the times

You stood by me

I can’t be selfish

And keep you here,

That wasn’t part of

Our original deal.

One last kiss, last breath

And off you go.

For now

The ache in my heart

Will overflow,

But later on

When it’s my time to go,

All of you

That have gone before,

Will gather together

and  we shall celebrate.

For the love in a mother’s heart

Is a promise, eternally pure.

Sewing Love

A time honored tradition,

Sewing.

My grandmother taught me. A teacher for 47 years, her passions were grandchildren, sewing, knitting, baking and swimming.

Grandkids coming to her house to swim, then having cookies and milk.

Every grandchild was given beautiful knitted mittens for Christmas. Granddaughters got Raggedy Ann’s.

Grandma love! ❤️

In later years, after she and grandpa retired, she became legally blind.

I sewed her a Raggedy Ann. Not once had she sewn one for herself.

She was overjoyed.

As was tradition,

my granddaughter received…

You guessed it.

I mailed my surprise,

My daughter sent me this:

Granddaughter hugs

For a tradition

Filled With Grandma loves. ❤️

Kind Regards and #winning – G’Ma K

Beloved

Just ‘round the corner.

Just ‘round the corner

You will find yourself.

You’ve been there all along.

Waiting for you to realize

You are wonderfully loved and

Known to be so kind.

Exquisitely unique and perfect,

Just the way you are. ❤️

Hello 2018!

Flashbacks and quotes:

It’s not about the money,

‘Cuz I’ve got none

But, MAN AM I RICH!

😘

Remember:

<<<<<<

🍀🍀🍀🍀

Laughter, love, gratitude

And belief in self

Will get you through!

If you stumble,

Start to fall,

Remember

We are here

To help

Get you over

that damn wall.

Silliness, seriousness,

Doesn’t matter what it takes

Teamwork always wins!

Sliding into 2018, weeeee!

Heading home

Friday at four

Three day weekend

Looms ahead.

Work weeks done

Feeling half dead

And what wondrous

Sights do I see?

A whole lot of souls

Heading home

Just like me.

Today a surprise

The skies all ablaze

It catches my eye

A whole week

Of stress

Vanished,

Without a

Goodbye.

Though it’s only

A short commute

I’m thankful

I’m grateful

As I snap

A few clicks

As I drive

My familiar

Yet today,

Gloriously unique

Daily Commute.

❤️

Kind Regards and wishing everyone a safe and Happy New Year weekend – K

I believe in Santa!

I believe that being kind,

Begets kindness.

I want to believe in true love.

I believe that laughter,

Sprinkles happiness all about.

I want to believe in soulmates.

All your dreams will come true.

Grab your shovels, gloves and hat!

I believe that we are having

A very White Christmas this year!

Wednesday’s Wisdom 12/20/2017

A little something from Tuesday’s lunch!

I had a 2017 ornament made for my daughter of the following! Who would have thought 33 years later!

2 generations of “and laying a finger aside of his nose…”

‘It’s the season
for memories, fondly remembering those cherished of the past. A wonderful opportunity to join in, have fun and make new!

#winning

❤️

Kind Regards and believing in the magic of the season -K
