For Today... 


Outside my window... 
is a beautiful summer day in Arkansas. From the windows to the deck I can see the Arkansas River Valley. Across the river is a small town. It lights up at night and is very beautiful.


I am thinking... 
about a show I saw yesterday on the TV. The doctor said when two people are in love their hearts synchronize. When the couple look into each other's eyes they can see the pupils of their eyes expand. I thought that was wonderful. God did a great job creating us.


I am thankful...for my family who have put up with my illness for two year and still love me.


I am wearing... 
a pale blue long night gown. It is very old fashion, which I love, and very comfortable. I have dark blue house shoes on.


I am creating... 
a healthy living environment. I try to use healthy cleaning products.  I use vinegar and soda in a lot of my cleaning formulas. 


I am going...
to start blogging again. It has been two years since my mind has been clear enough to blog.


I am wondering...
if this heat spell we are having will ever end. I hope we have a cool fall that doesn't feel like summer. I love the fall of the years. 


I am reading...
I am reading James Patterson's book Guilty Wives. It's a very good book. I like most of his books.

Guilty Wives

No husbands allowed

Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they're free to live someone else's life. As the weekend moves into pulsating discos, high-stakes casinos, and beyond, Abbie is transported to the greatest pleasure and release she has ever known.

What happened last night?

In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened—something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable. And now the vacation of a lifetime becomes the fight of a lifetime—for survival. GUILTY WIVES is the ultimate indulgence, the kind of nonstop joy-ride of excess, friendship, betrayal, and danger that only James Patterson can create.

I am learning...
to embrace being old. I don't mind looking old but I don't like the forgetfulness my husband and I are both experiencing now that we are close to 70. There are new challenges each day. I have to remind myself daily what it means to be the kind of wife God intended me to be. I always remember to try to glorify God in the way I live my life.


In my garden...
is the reminder that I have lived in a fog for two years because of the sedatives the doctor has prescribed for me. I have been off them for two months and I am gradually becoming me again.

In my kitchen...
today I made my favorite meal. Beef veggie soup. As my husband reminded me it is better in cool weather but I just couldn't wait. I don't cook very often with a recipe so it  is just a hodgepodge of the things I love. It's been a favorite with my family for over 60 years. My dad made it for us until he was not in good health. 


A favorite quote for today...

Love quote 1

A peek into one of my days...
My day starts at five in the morning because that's when I wake up. I have very little to do. I watch YouTube Bible studies for three hours before I began breakfast for my husband, Jerry. He sleeps until nine in the morning. I cook bacon and eggs twice a week but the rest of the week we have fruit and cereal. The day consists of cooking and cleaning. I enjoy my home and making it clean and livable but I don't like decorating or remodeling. I love having visits from family members. My grands are the most remarkable people. We go on day trips and are very lucky to live in Arkansas where there are so many places to visit. The Ozarks are very close to where we live and we never tire of visiting Jasper and Branson. We plan to leave tomorrow morning to have breakfast in Jasper and then go to Branson, MO. for the day.

One of my favorite things...
are when my grands visit me. I become a child again as I play with them. When Adi and Jaxson visit me they put on a play or do the weather and  news for me. I video everything they do. I have three small great grands who put on all kind of shows. Kota has lost a tooth.

I hope all of you have a wonderful month and I look forward to reading all of your blogs you share with us.
