Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

A time to keep silent and a time to speak. . . .

Several weeks ago a dear one pointed out to me that I had promised a September blog...did someone say it is November!  I have been silent--at least on my blog.  I love to blog, but it is more difficult than I thought it would be.  But, once more I am going to try to be a better blogger.

Here are a few of my random thoughts--just to get the blog going.

Life--life is a wonderful journey.  I have a blessed life.  In October, Dirtman was home for over two weeks now and we enjoyed toiling at the chores that being homeowners bring.  When he got home I had a honey-do list for him and of course he had his own list of things to do too.  He worked long and hard on both lists and it has paid off.   We have not changed anything big, but our home is looking like we want it to.  Don't get the wrong idea, there is still a long list of Must Dos and Want To Dos.

Liberty--the priviledge of doing what you want when you are retired.  Yes, Dirtman is ocassionally saying things like, "don't you think you would like to work a little?" and "you need something to do", wow--does he think I am having too much fun?  Well, he is right.  I love my life and am so grateful for what I have.  However, I think I will work a little come Spring--oh my!

The Pursuit of Happiness--well, a grandbaby will take care of that--I have been in pursuit of this happiness for years and all my dreams recently came true.  We are blessed with a baby girl--Amelia.  I am head over heels in love with this kid--holding and giving her love brings all the happiness I need.  We had our Kansas shower in October (good grief)--here are a few photos. . .

It was a great day--fun had by all and the gifts were awesome.  Now our bundle of joy is here and is almost three weeks old--life is good! 

Another list of my likes--pink, pinterest, searching for vintage dress-up clothes--it's never too soon to get ready for tea parties and dressing up, and making a Christmas gift list.

May all the seasons be good to you

  1. Coach & it girl would like to discourage tea parties and dress up and encourage outdoor play & sports. :-)
