A Midi Skirt

This is the perfect summer outfit
I love skirts,
anything past my knees , makes me look frumpy
one of my weaknesses when I shop at thrift stores, are skirts
I have a closet full of skirts
I can't help it
I usually send them to a seamstress to be hemmed

Mushroom Head

Is it just me
or does Ali look like she has a mushroom
growing out of her head?
This was taken way back in May
before another tragedy happened
We lost our favorite Aunt
a Mother almost to most of us
she had moved out to our little piece of the world
to be closer to her sister
they did everything together
almost to the point of driving my Dad crazy
my poor Mother
her world has been rocked
our world's have been rocked
life is too short

Deep in Sadness

Nothing can prepare you
losing your dad
some days I have perpetual tears streaming out of my eyes
like a crying doll
He lived 84 good years on this earth
and it seems too short
I want him back
how selfish of me
I will miss the hanging groceries at my front door
and so much more
I have so many questions
about life after death
I thought there would be time to say goodbye
but there wasn't
he went peacefully

I heard this song the other day
and it helped with the noise that is inside my head

Happy Weekend

Doesn't this look like the best place to sit
and have a cup of coffee
with a piece of chocolate cake or two?

Happy Weekend...
