Talking Trash

The Mall…Washington D.C.  The day after…

Inauguration A Nation Gathers

The day after America’s biggest yard party was all about the cleanup.

The Trash Was Historic, Too

Washington trash trucks hauled away at least 130 tons of garbage after the inauguration
of President Obama, with more to go. National Park Service workers picked up almost
100 tons on the Mall and near the White House.

Until next time…

My son and his beautiful family are with us during this Christmas and New Year season.  My cup overflows with goodness and blessings.  I can already feel the sadness of their departure for home trying to sneak into my emotions, but each time sadness tries to invade I shove it aside so not to dampen the time we have together.  It’s been a wonderful time of watching Josh and Brandi parenting and loving each other…a blessed time of getting to know our beautiful DIL better.  Geographic distance presents such a limitation on familiarity.

With all that being said, there is no further need for explaining my sparse blogging posts and visits to the blogs and blogging friends I’ve grown to love over the past several months.  My computer chair is mostly vacant and will remain so while the “kids” are here.

Yesterday they went to my mom and dad’s house to hang out and spend some time with them.  Mom made chicken and dumplings and dressing for supper…I begged for leftovers if there were any, and she sent me some.  Wordless Wednesday  is supposed to be wordless…but these are too good not to prelude.  They are every bit as wonderful as they look.


Our chickens have become egg laying machines.  🙂   Our egg count is up to 42.  🙂  I plan on keeping a record of how many eggs our sweet little flock gives us for the duration…we’ll see.

Until next time…

The secret of sucess is to start from scratch and then keep on scratching.  ~ unknown ~

I am thankful for my washer and dryer…those two machines make life so much simpler than it would be without them.  Now it’s time for me to move on to another machine…I’ve got Christmas gifts to stitch, and the clock is ticking.

Until next time…
