~ ~ ~
Summer has come to an end.
It was a warm one.
Did a lot.
Read lots of books.
Sat in the sun.
We had a lot of that.
Not normal for us but warm is the new.
Went on a few mini vacations.
Had lots of fun.

Read more books.

Walked when I could.
Sat and enjoyed the views.
Had a grand time.

Now, Fall has arrived.
Getting cold.
Rainy too.

I miss Summer already.

Just saying ...

Twice As Much

~ ~ ~ 
Lots of things going on in my life.
Odd to be going back in time.
Some things I remember and some I don't.
People I haven't talked to in thirty years.
That's a long time.
Some are very friendly
and some aren't.
Change is good.
Some don't and some do.
Might see a few of them.
Might not.
Haven't decided yet.
Me, I've changed so much.
I'm bolder.
Scratch that .. I was wise and calm.
I was a watcher.
The silliness that was.
Now, I live a richer life.
Not needing any of the oddness that goes on.
I am a loner and a watcher.
I prefer to just be.

On the old body going crazy department.
I have three things going on.
Not one but three.
As if I didn't have anything to do
with my old life.
It seems that I will always
be fighting to survive.
It does get tiring and emotionally challenging.
I will try to not be that lady.
The one who goes outside
and yells at the world.
I've done that before.
Many times in fact.
So, if you see someone doing that
just know that it might be me.

It's been a while.
I know.
Keeps me busy.
I mean to get here.
Just haven't until today.

Lots of things going on.
People doing bad things.
Getting away with it.
Me, trying to warn others.
No one listened.
They thought I was being odd.
Nope, just telling the truth.
That's why no one tells others.
No one believes.
So, the person who did it,
gets away with it.
What can I say.
Just annoyed at people.
It's the reason I stay
kind of away
in my woods.

(I live in a homeowners association neighborhood.
The current board members are sort of 
like a group of dictators.
I volunteered last year.
Was treated terribly.
Decided I didn't want to put up with it.
This year, I wrote the neighborhood
a note telling them what happened.
No one believed me.
They got away with it.
That's why people don't tell
anyone what happens.)

What I learned ..
Never volunteer (at least not in my neighborhood)
Always believe in yourself
There really are bad people 
(I already knew that but still when you actually meet
one .. I'm still shocked)
I now will watch as they continue to do
what they want and see if any of the
goofs who live here
do anything about it.
I'm only one person
and without others listening
nothing will be done.
At least I tried.
Can walk away knowing that.

Confirms why I'm kind of loner
I watch from the woods

And, that is my talk to myself.

What Is That

The sun has decided to visit.
How that just makes the day.
I live in the woods.
Dark in the Winter.
Wet from the rain.
Green from the trees and moss.
Yes, I said moss.
Down my driveway and into the woods.
I love it here. Most times.
Only when it's yucky wet and dark, nope.
So, today with yellow stuff visiting,
it makes me think,
that Spring might come back.
It is amazing here
in the Spring and Summer.
Most of the early Fall days too.
It's just the green slimy walkways
that make an old lady trip
and the lawn that looks terrible
due to moss and the feet
that sink into it
if you don't look where 
you are walking.
Like I said, the sun is out.
Brings me hope.
I still won't be going out
there though but soon.

Mew At You Later,

Just Life

~ ~ ~

Been a while since I've been here.
Lots went on.

Spring and Summer.
My dog was worn out.
She died.
Very very sad times.
Most of that time was spent
helping her in the last days.

Next we recovered.
It took a mental toll
on everyone.
Not the cats but the humans
and my other dog.

We did decide to adopt.
A new puppy has 
kept me hopping.
I'm almost sleeping
through the nights.
We're at that stage
of the new fur ball
in the house.

The normal that will be
is almost here.
The cats don't really care.
Not after that first week
where they were
what did Mom do 
this time.

Now, it's just oh
it's the short dog.

The Winter blahs
have arrived.
Rain, cold, snow, ice
and wind.
I do so enjoy the
warmer months.
I always have.
I always will.

That's the latest.
No big deals .. really.
Just life.
As it goes
over here.
