Safe And Warm

Yesterday I "planted" the mailbox.
This is something I do every year and enjoy the process very much.
The planter and mailbox have been in front of the house
for about 15 years.

The weather here has been crazy.
There has been inches and inches of rain
and today it is cold and windy.

The new plants,
Asparagus Fern and Purslane,
seem to be curled up, trying to stay warm.

I was going to plant herbs today.
{they go into planters on the back patio}
Maybe I will wait for a warmer day.

On this Memorial Day Weekend,
lets remember those who have died fighting 
to keep us safe, warm and free.

Love you.

Dear Anonymous Reader

Blogging is an interesting thing.
As long as my blog is open to the public,
I am subject to opinions, ridicule 
 rude behavior by people,
because they are anonymous. 
Along with one rude note,
comes 10 sweet, supportive notes and messages.

I blog
{yes! you have heard this before}
because it is what I do in the morning.
I do not drink coffee,
smoke cigarettes
or even eat breakfast.
It is just what I do.

I paint, because it makes my heart sing.
I am sorry if you do not like my paintings.

Yes, we travel. 
France is one of our favorite places.
We have an apartment now 
and have been going each year for ages.
I am sorry that you do not like France.
I am sorry that the two days that you spent there
were difficult.
Perhaps you should have stayed home?

I cook and share recipes.
It is a shame that you think that I am wasting my time.
I love doing it and when I am gone,
my daughters will know where to find the "favorites".

My overall feeling is, that you are sad.
Not at me, but perhaps the world.
Please go out today and find something,
anything, that makes you happy.
If you find something that makes your heart sing,
you will be so much happier.
Perhaps you should try blogging?
if you do, please send me the link.
I will be your first fan.
Love you.
