Ruby Tuesday 2~Jan 31, 2012 - My Heart




I put my feelings on the line.
I put my heart out, in plain view.
I lavished love, so willingly...
the only way I knew.

Defenses left along the way.
In shattered heaps they’re lying, still.
And what was me 
- my heart , my soul -
was there for you to fill.

I put my all, there on the line.
My past I left, without a care.
Mountains crossed and bridges 
all on a hope and prayer.

That hope and prayer are flimsy now.
The love I nurtured, has been stilled.
The dream was mine - a fantasy -
  not meant to be fulfilled.

Friday's Fences_( for Jan 27, 2012)

~go here for more FENCE posts~
This board fence marks the boundary of the wildflower meadow at our place. This is an area that we leave uncut for Spring's early show of wildflowers; mostly in shades of pink, lavender and white.
Our granddaughters (My sister,Joy's and mine)at age 2...
What a fun day!!
Ma-Ma had more little pink flowers than she knew what to do with! ;)

Our little girls are grown up now, and their great-grandmother is no longer with us here in this world...
Oh!  But we had some good times, all together, in those days.  We will always have the sweet memories!

Pink Saturday_ Jan 28, 2012


Pink Saturday

One late afternoon this week,
just after sunset,
the sky turned the most gorgeous soft shades of pink!

It amazes me how the sun sets in the west
-with all the fiery glory-
and turns the eastern sky these luscious shades of pink!

 This is my favorite part of the day!

Ruby Tuesday 2 ~ 1-24-'12..."Cock-A-Doodle-Do"



Mirror, mirror on the wall,
who's the cockiest bird of all?

Just watch me strut and watch me preen...
the coolest guy I've ever seen!

If you can't see that...
shame on you!
I'll leave you with my...

Belated birthday with Tina...


We had a little belated  'cake-ice cream-presents' with Tina today... just Tina, Alli and Dan, our DIL, Joy, Charles and me were here...

Oh-and Emmy Rose was here, of course! That pup is always extremely thrilled when Alli comes around!

I want to post the pictures, mainly for the family to see.

~Included....2 new tattoos on Dan's arm!!!~

This is my granddaughter, photographing the ducks in Central Park!

Packing away Christmas

(posted on Face Book today)
Knocked myself out yesterday in packing up my Christmas stuff...Got most of it done except dragging the tree out- Chas will have to help with that-bad back or not!!!! I was sooo tired I couldn't get to sleep when I went to bed at 1:00AM...At 3:30 I was still awake... so had to take a prescription sleeping pill. My Melatonin didn't work last night- I guess I was just too tired!! My goodness-couldn't believe it when I looked at the clock when I awoke this morning...10:30!!!! :) But I feel better and am ready to face the day.....and the Rest Of My Life!!
I am reminded of some lyrics from a Dan Fogelberg song...
 The song is "Loose Ends."
.."Surrounding myself with possessions, I surely have more than I need...I'm wondering if this is justice hard earned, or simply a matter of greed...."
I'm sure Dan was not writing about putting away Christmas decorations...nonetheless...those words came to me!!

Ruby Tuesday 2~ Jan 17, 2012-Red flowers in winter



She sits on the counter,
with flowers of winter...
 dreaming of  pastures of clover.

    How long can it be,
until spring will be 'spring-ing'...
now that Christmas is over?
