Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on May 11, 2020 |

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Even though social distancing guidelines prevented hugs or kisses, it was still great to have company both Saturday and Sunday. And the whole weekend was a celebration of flowers. This arrangement with the bright yellow flowers came from my son and his family in Austin. The lily in […]

Monday Morning Musings

Happy Monday Morning When I walk with my dog in the mornings, I pass by several places where there are pretty flowers, some domestic and some wild. These wild irises are blooming just under some domestic ones. These are in a field where a house once stood, so somebody had planted the big irises. Both […]

Friday Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on April 17, 2020 |

Happy Friday everyone. I hope it is a good day for you. It’s warming up again here in Texas after a bit of a cold snap on Tuesday and Wednesday. For those couple of days, temperatures were in the mid-thirties at night, and I thought I might have to cover my plants again. Luckily, it […]

Who Can be President?

Posted by mcm0704 on March 9, 2020 |

Today is a rant day. I didn’t mean to. I didn’t plan to. I just listened to one too many political podcasts and said, “Enough.” So, I decided to write an open letter to the Federal Government, State Governments, the DNC and the GOP. But before we get into the dismal stuff, I thought you […]

Learning to be Still – Tips from Kristen Lamb

Posted by mcm0704 on March 2, 2020 |

Kristen Lamb, an author and writing coach, writes a blog that I follow, and she recently posted an essay: Quiet: Have We Forgotten to Be Still in a World That Never Stops.  When I read the title, I was intrigued, mainly because I have always struggled with being still. Quiet. Sitting and doing… nothing. Perhaps […]

Let’s Write a Story

Posted by mcm0704 on October 18, 2019 |

Okay, I don’t know about you, but I need a distraction from the horrible mess in Syria, thanks to the man who thinks pulling the troops out was a brilliant idea. Not to mention the horrible mess in Washington. So, today I decided to do something new on the blog. Actually, I thought about doing […]

Flaunting Our Riches

Posted by mcm0704 on July 26, 2019 |

Happy Friday everyone. Remember the game Where’s Waldo? I have one for you. Where’s the Butterfly? You don’t have to look too closely to see the purple bunnies in this picture, but where’s the butterfly? These flowers are planted in the front flowerbed just outside my office window, and I delight in seeing how many […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on June 10, 2019 |

Before I left my daughter’s home in Missouri last week, she gave me a cutting from a plant in her yard. I don’t remember what the plant is called, but it loves sun and I put it in a place on my front porch that gets a lot of light. The smaller, darker green leaves […]

Absurdities Abound

Posted by mcm0704 on May 24, 2019 |

Before writing about the absurd deals that were made between our erstwhile leader here in the United States and the German financial institution, Deutsche Bank, I thought it would be nice to share a few pictures from my little corner of the world. This dog greets me and my dog every morning when we’re walking. […]
