Comment: tomatoes on the windowsill

In winter tomatoes are hard, cold, slightly PINK things.  A shadow of their genetic selves and we HATE them.  But every summer we LOVE them.  Then they're juicy, red, and full of life!!!

I blogged earlier here about ripening them in winter.  My 4 pack of those especially cardboardy ones (the cheapest you find at the grocery) on my sill now for several days.  The color is changing, but still I haven't gotten the excellent results I so hope for.

But I do know that refrigerating these so-called "fruit" gems ruins them for sure. 

What are your experiences with tomatoes in winter?  I'd love to hear.

Comment: Laundry day!

Hello there!  Today was laundry day.  It was piled up, literally!  The washer is not in the best condition so I'm hoping it holds up.  With 6 in the family, it takes a beating - especially when the seasons change.

Last night it was a red sky.  This morning too.  I wonder if that saying applies:

"Red sky in the morning - sailor takes warning.  Red sky at night - sailors dellight."

Oh well, it was beautiful each time.  The paint box of God never ceases to amaze me.  His creation is so lovely.  I especially love trees!  They stretch their arms up to heaven.  And the birds love to rest on their branches. 

Have a good day!

True Grit - movie

True Grit!  The remake.  Saw it with my 6+ foot son.  It was good; I didn't even fall asleep!!!  (My usual behavior when I sit down, believe it or not.)  Worth seeing, even if you loved John Wayne in the original role of Rooster Cogburn.

A beautiful (if cold) day here in PA.

Comment: Susan Boyle

Look at the darling singer from Britian that has taken the world by storm - Susan Boyle.

Just saw the interview of her on TV channel last night. She is a dear and yet - a real person -- not just an amazing singer. I wish so that I could meet her. She seems so down to earth, and yet so vulnerable and real.

I would tell her to take care of herself. Watch out for those who would attach themselves to her that could hurt her. She wants protecting, I think. She deserves it too.

I wish for Susan Boyle success (hardly necessary anymore) and along with that a joyous life and peaceful. God bless Susan Boyle.

Comment: April's trip / Hershey Medical Center

Today April (and we) went to a cardiologist near Hershey, PA.  It was a difficult trip - the drive, and the news.  Not unexpected, but still difficult.  The people there were amazing, however.  It was a good place to be, and the people were so kind and considerate.  Our April did very well and was very grown up about it all.  April has Downs Syndrome and a serious heart problem. 


Our April is grown; born in 1971.  Her heart is inoperable, so that is the hard bit.  But she is such a cheerful girl and tries so hard to make it easier for others.

For instance, when her pet canary died, she kept it secret so she wouldn't upset the family.  I have talked to her about telling me when things are wrong. I think (and hope) she understands how important that is since we realize how grave her present condition. 

Thanks for your comment. I am delighted to hear from you. :o)
