Shine On Harvest Moon



Did you know yesterday was a Harvest Moon?  I didn't until we saw it on the the news. The last one was in 1991 and the next will be 2029.  This year's was extra special because you could also see Jupiter.



Hopefully, when you click on the picture, it'll be bigger and you can see the small speck below the moon--that's Jupiter.  Cool, huh?

Big Orange Country

We bleed orange!  At least Darrell does--and I'm trying real hard to.  Anyone who knows us in real life--and some of you who've read this blog for a while--know how much Darrell loves his University of Tennessee Volunteers.  So when my dear friend Audrey and her husband Russ invited us to go with them to a game last weekend, how could we say no!  



Tennessee has a new coach this year--we won't talk about the so and so who flaked out on us last year.  The team is struggling, but they'll come around.  The game we watched was against Florida and we knew we probably wouldn't win (which we didn't), but we still had a good time.  Darrell says everyone should experience a college game in person at least once.  I was hoping the atmosphere would help me appreciate the game and become more of a fan.  Yeah, that didn't happen.  Maybe it was the heat.
 


Because, man, was it hot!  We were sitting in the 95+ degree heat for all but maybe 30 minutes of the game.  You do what you gotta do sometimes!

Did Ya Miss Me?

So....I've been a little MIA lately.  Several projects going on--most of which I've neglected to get pictures of.  Told ya before what a bad blogger I am!  I never remember the camera till after the fact.

However,  here's a picture of the result of something I've been working on for the past few weeks.  

 
While it may not be much to some, it's a very big deal to me.  I've never set foot on a college campus as a student.  I'm a little lot nervous, excited, anxious, thrilled, etc, etc!

I Would Never....

....attempt to cool down a hot flash by holding a package of frozen hash browns on the back of my neck.  Especially while standing in the checkout line at Walmart.

Lessons I've Learned


Good grief!  It's been two weeks since I posted.  Not because I had nothing to talk about--that would be cause for calling Ripley's!  Mainly just because I'm a slacker.  But being lazy doesn't mean I can't learn, so here are some things I've figured out.  These are in no particular order.

I'm old.  Having three grandchildren visit for ten days--even though their mom was here, too--wore me out.  Lauren, I bow to you.  Don't know how you do it.  Every day they were here, I understood better and better why we have kids while we're young.

I can be nice--and actually enjoy it.  Who woulda thunk?  Truthfully, I was able to help someone out and it was as much a blessing in my life as she said it was in hers.

Friends are a wonderful thing.  Especially when you open yourself up and let them in.  If they can't take the real you, find others who can.  You just might be surprised by who sticks around.

Smiles and light hearted attitudes often hide hurts and worries.  Those folks who always seem to be upbeat and Pollyanna-ish?  They may be the ones hurting the most.  They may have learned to refocus those feelings, but it doesn't mean they wouldn't appreciate a hug or a shoulder to lean on once in a while.

Valium can be a bit of heaven on earth.  Colonoscopies aren't that bad.  Maybe it was because of the Valium....
