Meandering~Take10


I will blow on my dandelion extra softly so all the seeds blow my wish ever true true.

Day three of NO Smoking.
I so want to be a Quitter.

Cigarette smoking aggravates liver functioning.

“Even the best fall down sometimes” from How Six Songs Collide” My heart aches for anyone in any realm of pain. Mentally, emotionally physically.

Pain is the worse of all malady’s.

This Wheel’s on Fire
Bob Dylan

If your memory serves you well
We were going to meet again and wait
So I’m going to unpack all my things
And sit before it gets too late
No man alive will come to you
With another tale to tell
But you know that we shall meet again
If your memory serves you well
This wheel’s on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode!
If your memory serves you well
I was going to confiscate your lace
And wrap it up in a sailor’s knot
And hide it in your case
If I knew for sure that it was yours
But it was oh so hard to tell
But you knew that we would meet again
If your memory serves you well
This wheel’s on fire
Rolling down the road
Best notify my next of kin
This wheel shall explode!

Watched the Movie and now am watching my old-time favorites streaming on Netflix. I remember when people called me Edina.

OM~A Poem I wrote

Sometimes
Like now I get up, it’s 4 am. Because I can
Sometimes
I stay in bed all day under cover so too speak, turn the phones off and the messenger too, because I feel like it and I can
I put on my night shades and pretend I am in a deep, dark and mysterious cave, I am in my world, my sanctuary
Sometimes
I feel drawn to a full moon on a clear night and look up in wonderment at how bright it is
Stars twinkling off and on like a night switch in the sky
Sometimes
I greet the morning sun as it comes out to play and the moon fades away
Sometimes
I take my shoes off and ride to the beach. I park and walk, feeling the warm sand drift through and in-between my toes
and Listen to the music in my mind
Sometimes I go to the bridge and look into my reflection in the water
I talk to the ripples cascading over the stones
Sometimes
I get melancholy and regret not asking my beloved parents, grandparents questions I can never know the answers to…
they are gone, into the mist, around the bend
Sometimes
I dwell on too many things and know everything has reasons we know not of…
Sometimes
I feel the unconditional love of my animals more than the love of a human heart
and ask WHY?
Sometimes
My dreams are so real, I don’t want to wake
Sometimes
I see the injustice in our world
and ask what makes a wrong ever seem right
Sometimes
I see the simplicity of life
other times I see the strife
they both have IF”S
If we don’t Listen, we can not hear
If we don’t look, we can not see
If we don’t try, we never know
The Lightness of just being
and the “OM” in sOMetimes

Well, it is after all July, no wonder I am on the subject of mint tea and Kasbah. We arrived in Tangier in 1971 on this very date. Enjoying homemade Moroccan Mint`Green tea with honey, lemon and sugar. Feel like I am in the den of the Kasbah.
Need more mint leaves.

1/3 cup gunpowder green tea
About 32 ounces boiling water
1/3 cup sugar (or to taste)
1 bunch fresh spearmint

Card of the Day ~ Six of Swords

The mental stress that you have been dealing with over the past week are beginning to lift and fade out of your life. Things are shifting because of your proactive stance and seeing these situations through to completion. Each and every situation always will have a beginning, middle, and ending. Challenges and blessings cycle in and cycle out. Enjoy the next few weeks where many of the current concerns will be a thing of the past, remember this when you are in the thick of things that eventually this too shall pass. If we embrace this understanding that all does pass, then we do not need to suffer as much as we do in the present moment.

I asked her how it felt to be a great-grandmother.
With a twinkle in her eye, she said to me, “I have always been a GREAT-grandmother, dear.”

C. m ART z  2015 “Even the best fall down sometimes” from the song “How Six Songs Collide”
The song expresses how events that occur in our lives do not always appear to be fair or even make sense ?

Silent Echo
You don’t make a lot of noise, but when you talk, people listen. You have a quiet wisdom about you that people respect and admire. Your mysterious nature pulls people in.

Something’s need forgetting. I forget things all the time, and find it odd that I remember things that feel embedded like cement in my mind.

Until the next time folks

Meanderings~ Take 9


When lighting a burner or oven with no pilot light, always light the match first, place it at the burner, and then turn the range knob. I did the opposite. I had a drastic buzz cut in 1980. My gas stove SINGED my beautiful long hair and my eyebrows. I went to the barber and he buzzed it. I went cross-country on a greyhound bus. My mama gave me a wig for the trip. I woke from a nap and persons were walking on it (The Wig) in the isle. Everyone in Salt Lake was like “I love your hair, who did it?” I told them the stove scenario. I said to get the curly effect perm first, than singe, than BUZZ. This photo is approximately a three-month growth.

Your name would be:
Aiyana, ‘Eternal Blossom’
You are beautiful and classic in every stage of life. You breathe new life into dull or tired situations. You make people happy just by being yourself. Somehow your beauty and energy never fade away.

Pool, missing keys, Rhea said mine were in the kitchen on the wall. They were in the living room on the eagle three D photo. I am discombobulated for sure.

I bought a small bic lighter that was yellow for the sun. Today it looks white?  What up with that???

His keys fell out of my bathing suit and I have not a clue how in the hell they got their?

It’s not the day you have to manage, Phoenix, but the moment.
It’s not the dragon you have to slay, but the fear.
And it’s not the path you have to know, but the destination.
What a relief, huh?

Cynthia says “This is coming from a place I lived within myself for too many years. Codependency isn’t fun at all in my opinion.”
The process of learning and becoming independent is a critical accomplishment, for if we fail to achieve happiness within our own space, independent of other’s influences, we pay for it the rest of our lives.

You can’t compare apples and oranges. If you didn’t live IT, don’t comment on it.

John Belushi’s Hey Bartender

“I said Woman, you going to walk a mile for a Camel
Or are you going to make like Mr. Chesterfield and satisfy?
She said that all depends on what you’re packing
Regular or king-size
Then she pulled out my Jim Beam, and to her surprise
It was every bit as hard as my Canadian Club”

Are dreams our sub conscious thoughts of our waking conscious ones? Is that why if we do not jot notes on awaking, the dream is lost to our sub conscious within moments?

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

Dr. Seuss, The Lorax

“Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. You have to know that you’re a good person and a good friend. What’s meant to be will end up good and what’s not- won’t. Love is worth fighting for, but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At times, people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you just have to move on and realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you.”

I got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, so tonight I will get in on the other side.

I just want you to know, Phoenix, that those animals you’ve known, who’ve moved beyond the veils of time and space, were forever changed by your love, they’re alive and well, and they’ve banded together to ask me a favor… that I make sure you get this message.

Message from Caylee in Heaven~Little Angel

Inner_child_bubbles

Dear Mommy,
It’s me Caylee, writing you from my new home in Heaven.
I like it here but I liked it at Mama CC and Papi JoJo’s better. I miss my toys and my playhouse.

It was so dark and cold where you put me.
A cold, watery swamp. Those black bags and Grandma CC’s laundry bag. At least Pooh was with me.
Where was my favorite dolly ?

They said you left it in the car seat when you abandoned the car. Sorry I stank it up. But I was dead you know. Remember you killed me.

Those three pieces of tape across my nose and mouth, I couldn’t breathe. It was a horrible way to die Mommy.

You should have just broken my neck, quickly.
That would have been better.

But then again, no one knows how I suffered.
Or how I died. There were only bones left when they found my remains. No DNA, no flesh, the animals had eaten it all off.

Those 12 jurors, they found you not guilty. But mama, millions know that’s not the way it is supposed to be. You did it, you know it. So many in their gut, in their heart know it.

You will never be really free. I am sorry for you. I am sorry I made your life so unhappy that you had to rid yourself of me. I am sorry your life is all about lies and more lies.

I am sad that 12 jurors believed your lies.

The prosecution said it all when they said “You do not make an accident look like murder.
In all reality you try your best to make a murder look like an accident”

I rest my case.

“I’m going swimming now…oh and that drowning story and those lies about grandpa. How could you mama?

Notice I am talking really good now mama ?

Another windows 10 Update. I noticed I am getting updates for Microsoft Office. I do not nor have ever had Office. Uninstalled years ago.

I upgraded this Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 Pro when I had too. I just uninstalled the updates to Office but I have an odd feeling they will be like Groundhog Day every time there’s another update.

I made a system restore since I have moved so much around of late.

Our memories are within us, not within our things.

My REVIEW

Canon PIXMA MX922 Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer, Copier, Scanner and Fax with Software and Photo Paper Bundles

I have always owned Canon printers, camera’s if it said Canon I knew it would be great.

This printer is the best. Everything works as it should. Copier is fast, scanner is accurate, photos 4×6 or larger are perfect.

It lacks proper documentation and for those unfamiliar with setting up a printer may find issues.

Other than that easy set up with ink and paper.

YouTube has many set up videos for this problem. I did not realize it had two bottom cassette drawers and it took me a while to figure out how to load the legal paper.

Love the eco mode for printing on both sides in document copier.

Love the fact the drawer opens automatically when printing.
