My dear ‘sister Sue’. Sending soft hugs and just plain quiet sitting next to you watching the embers of a closing bonfire that will forever burn in your heart, giving you memories, strength, and comfort. I’m still kicking around here so if you ever just want to call and unburden yourself, it’s fine.
BTW, Gary seemed a little too much with ‘smothering control’ even tho he seemed a really nice guy for all of that. Kind of hard to cage a phoenix, no matter how soft the cage.
I just LOVE that last line. ….no matter how soft the cage.
Thank you M.
The stumps need splitting. My friend Joe may come over and help with that.
These don’t look very big but they are bigger around than my arm and 5′ long. There’s a lot of wood there.
I have to saw these up. They are fairly large too. And plenty of kindling.
Plenty of starter stuff. I also tuck in and around chunks as they burn to keep them burning hot. I don’t throw much away from a branch that comes down.
A friend of mine can’t believe I hauled those big branches alone. Who else will do it? I have a JD lawn tractor and a pull behind cart. Easy Peasy. You do what you have to do when you live alone. I don’t have the choice of waiting for ‘the other half’ to do it because I don’t have one.
After Nick died, I really discovered how many things he did without telling me.
I wish he would have told me.

July brings memories and sadness. My FB feed is full of our trip together. Memories I cherish even though I don’t think that pain will ever go away.
I stared at this canvas the other night. Wanting nothing more than to throw my arms carefully around him and hold on tight. I felt so empty.
Gary and I have broken up….but he leaves behind a woman more healed now than 18 months ago. Every day I get better. Until one day, it will hit me.
I CAN love again. And I will. And I will survive.
If it is your birthday this month??….SAY HI !!
When I put his harness on him (and I see he snuck a leg out that I didn’t notice) he thinks it’s punishment. He just stands there. I have to pull him along. I get this sad ‘What did I do to deserve THIS’ look.
I look right back at him and say “I guess you shouldn’t have run up by the busy highway then should you?????”
This is when I got this look.
Both of them have been very naughty that way. Stella has a new trick.
Dive into the Tiger Lily bed.
Snake along the ground so I can’t catch her.
She’s in a harness now too.
Gary and I are done.
And I’m very sad.
