News --

The baby is to be Kathryn! Finally, a name. I am sure she is quite tired of hearing "Sweet Pea" and "Sissy". Even though she isn't here yet I am sure she can hear us and is probably saying "hey, folks, it's Kathryn -- get it?" So, Kathryn it is. And now the embroidery begins.

August 12

How in the world did it get to be August 12th? What happened to July? Is it really possible that the Christmas decorations are out at Hobby Lobby? How can it be that the school supply bins are already picked over? I guess it is true that as you get older the time seems to go by faster. I used to relish the never ending summer -- walks around the neighborhood counting "round" windows, carrying Granny's cherry tomatoes and a salt shaker, sitting outside with the neighbors, palettes on the yard watching the clouds, kites, the "unacceptable" next door neighbors, playing in the hose, watching the pigeons come home. Summers aren't like that anymore -- we roast for three months wishing our lives away waiting for a "better" season. What a shame. However, yesterday while running errands in the 90+ heat I felt a breeze with a definite change in the air -- I could get a hint of autumn. It was brief and almost non-existent but it was there so I guess I can quit wishing for something better, more comfortable, because it is on the way!

New Blog

I am trying to begin a new blog over at Wordpress. I don't know why -- I guess I am just bored. So, visit me there, too, at Brinkley's Place! I don't know if I am going to stay there but I am keeping my blogger one, too, just in case. I dont know, I am just trying to confuse my life -- things are just too humdrum!
