Sharing Shoes with Maxine
























Yesterday was just the kind of day I was needing.  The only true event of the day turned out to be walking out to the Chicken Hotel and finding more than 4 eggs.

If you’d been walking in my shoes over the past couple of weeks - you would soooo get that!  And you’d enjoy a really nice - “ sigh….. ! “

Every time I claim to be in Hell - I end up in another place that shows me - “ We’re not there, yet! “

I’m about ready to keep my mouth shut - pack up - and just run and hide in Florida somewhere - for about  a month or so.

It’s either - that - or drinkin’.



















All I know is - something’s gotta change.  And it’s gotta be good news - like - where to find the front door to get away from all this crap these doctors are beginning to find.  Ya’ know?

I will be finding out quite a bit on December 13th - when I go for my follow-up with the Pulminary specialist.

Let me tell you something about that one.  If you ever have to go see that one for the first time - learn how to knit - crochet - paint - something!  Actually - painting would prolly be the best.  When all else fails - you can just throw that paint onto a canvas to get all that frustration safely - expressed.

I don’t recommend any project like - painting the house.  You’ll be looking up 6 months later - gandering at your efforts and wondering - “ Where in Hell was my brain when I chose that color? “

I do feel compelled to give myself some credit.  Throughout all this mess - I have managed to shoot some photos - all be it with that same mindset as Madame Maxine.



















Almost as bad as tromping out onto the porch - pushing a button to turn on the camera - holding it up and - click - without even looking.  The free hand resting on a hip.

Maxine would say - “ So - I have moments when I just feel the need to surprise myself - as well.

Ta!


























If for no other reason - worth preserving the gorgeous color that was enhanced after we had one heck of a storm last week - followed by the sunshine that won in the end that day!


























But I must say - I can see how hard these Bradford Pears are working at trying to con me into allowing them to stay.



















They’re so loaded with berries this year - all the branches are sagging!



























Still - not gonna happen.  Come next spring - they’re outta here!  One of our neighbors just had two go down during that storm the other day - and both slid down the side of her house after snapping.



























She’s lucky they weren’t any taller!

Love the photos, great color.
And fresh eggs to boot, oh by the way fresh eggs are super hard to peel. LOL. Bill

I'm so sorry you are still having a hard time of it, hope your health issues aren't TO bad. Love your photos though, I can't believe you still have so much color there!

I do know what you mean when you say something's gotta change...and it needs to be good news. We've not had as good a year as normal either, and sometimes I just want cry and ask WHY...but I keep trying to move on and not worry to much…after all it’s not for us to ASK Why, God knows and he is in control. *sigh* Easier said than done. :(

We finally found out what was wrong with DH's back, and to someone who is terrified of the S word (surgery) especially when it comes to the back, it's SO NOT good news.

I do hope you get some good news on December the 13th!

Oops, then I forgot the whole reason I came to your blog I think, I just wanted to say I hope you have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!! Even with a bad year, I know I'm really blessed, and thats what I am going to try to concentrate on...especially tomorrow. :)
