The Changing of the Seasons

Posted by mcm0704 on September 9, 2019 |

It’s been a crazy few days for me, so things are all out of order regarding my usual blog pattern. Slim Randles is my guest today with a thoughtful essay about September and the move from Summer to Autumn and what that means for country folks. And other folks, too.  He might be back on […]

The Killing Just Goes On And On

Posted by mcm0704 on September 2, 2019 |

I wasn’t going to post anything on the blog today. My heart was just too heavy after hearing of yet another mass shooting over the weekend, and I turned my attention to creative things that would lift my spirits. But then this letter from Beto O’Rourke popped up in my mailbox a few minutes ago […]

Mass Shootings – Mass Hatred

Posted by mcm0704 on August 5, 2019 |

My Heart is Heavy Today I thought my weekend was horrible because I spent Friday in ER with head pain that had gotten out of control. But the pain that lingers is nothing compared to the pain of the families who lost loved ones in the two mass shootings on Saturday. Nor does it begin […]

Posted by mcm0704 on July 29, 2019 |

Yesterday I was at the Winnsboro Center for the Arts for the latest Women In the Arts Exhibition. What fun it was to be there and see all the lovely works and meet the artists, and I was thrilled to be part of the show with my book, Evelyn Evolving. Thanks to my friend, Jane […]

Monday Morning Musing

Posted by mcm0704 on July 15, 2019 |

For my vacation this year, I spent a week with my sister and her family in Lake City, Michigan. They always camp by the lake over the Fourth of July holiday, and I’ve only been there once before for my birthday. Lake Missaukee isn’t a very big lake compared to the others in and around […]

Sweet Summer Nights

Posted by mcm0704 on July 1, 2019 |

Slim Randles is today’s guest with a reminder of what a cool summer evening can feel like. Sometimes we are blessed with the most perfect weather. We had one of those nice evenings here the other day and I took my dog for a long walk. I cut some flowers and he waited patiently for […]

On Art And Friendship

Posted by mcm0704 on June 24, 2019 |

Last Friday I was at the Winnsboro Center for The Arts for a special production following the Maryann Miller Beginner Drama Camp. It was great fun to be there, and the kids did a wonderful job putting on a performance that was an adaptation of the book, The Great Kapok Tree; A Tale of the […]

Words of Wisdom for Graduates

Posted by mcm0704 on June 17, 2019 |

As a special treat today, I have Slim Randles with a fun post about graduation and graduation speakers. Enjoy… When we filtered in for coffee at the Mule Barn truck stop, we were surprised to see Jim Albertson already there, already drinking coffee and looking as though he lost his last friend. It’s so unlike […]

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 […]

Memorial Day

Posted by mcm0704 on May 27, 2019 |

The other day, someone asked me what I was doing for the Memorial Day weekend, and I was surprised, as I always am since the holiday was moved from May 30. Back when I was a kid, we always knew when Memorial Day was coming around, and we always knew that it would be met […]
