My Summer So Far

I had a very busy and usually away from home, the past two summers and was too busy to keep up with a blog. This summer has been just the opposite with most of the family growing, working and having other responsibilities. As I don't drive anymore I spend most of my time in my apartment writing poetry, drawing computer pixel graphics, watching TV and DVDs or on my laptop. So I decided to start up another blog of which this is the result. I think of it as more of my journal or diary.

I do have my poetry site that is used just for my own poetry. I enjoy writing and displaying my poems even if I'm the only one who logs on to the site. Every so often one of my sisters or a couple of online friends will visit and sometimes comment on the poems. I do enjoy reading what they think of them. I feel the same about this blog. Not having many things to write about I opt for posting photos, paintings, trivia or things that I sometimes do or buy. There will be times when I'll feel I have nothing to post and so I limit myself to not posting every day and rarely on weekends. I feel if I can't keep my body active I'll at least keep my mind active. Hopefully if you are reading this you don't think I'm feeling sorry for myself because I definitely am not. I enjoy my quiet life and have always been sort of a loner most of it, just ask my family! I am happy when I'm with people and happy when I'm in my own company.

I am looking forward to seeing my grandson and granddaughter next month when they come to visit as it's been a few years since I've seen them, especially my granddaughter, hubby and her 4 boys. I've never seen the two youngest. One is 6 and the baby is 2. The two oldest are 13 and 12. It should be a wonderful reunion.

Well that's enough chatting for now. Until the next time dear diary, I send blessings to all my friends and family.


  1. Hi Toni, I am like you. When I am actually home I am just trying to relax and get some rest. We do spend a lot of time at my mom and dad's this summer. I love reading your blog posts and poems.
    How exciting your granddaughter will be visiting with her family!!! You will enjoy them so much. Have a great time.
    Have a nice week my friend. I hope the Yankees are doing well. The Cardinals are not having a very good year. Oh well. It happens.

  2. Hi Toni - enjoyed reading your blog today. I've just been resting this afternoon. The pain has just been intermittent today - not constant like it had been. Take care - I'll talk to you tomorrow. Love you dear sister!! xo


I so look forward to your comment as I appreciate your visit here. Today and always, I am thankful for your warm welcome and for being a friend to me. I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you dear friends, my heart has no bottom.
