Umbrageous....and I thought somebody had upset you Norma and you'd 'taken umbridge'
then upon checking the word, it has another meaning...'creating shade' thus the
lovely trees surrounding the campus.

Best Wishes,

Well I've learned a new word. I understand 'umbrage' as in to take umbrage but I didn't know the meaning in relation to trees.

baby- heaven sent   arrived early- Miriam  minuscule fingers- slender exquisitely made mouth, chin like father’s  in love when first I held her appeals for her wellbeing

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Moving Time

In the Midst of Packing January 3, 2017

I will be moving soon to a smaller home and close to my youngest son, Daddy of Miss Bright Eyes. So I’m taking a break- I have been purging for weeks now, but I’m not finished. Whew!  So I won’t be posting till after the move and settling into this sweet abode.

Happy 10th day of Christmas!
