I received a message in a dream last night. I was in the shallow Mangroves at Snipes Point. It was a beautiful day. The skies were blue and the bellowing clouds seemed to speak too me. I kept hearing the words~Time and Out.

So, I am heeding the advice.

Be Back Soonish I am sure Smile

  • UPDATE

This is an PNG file and works great in emails on white background. It is floating. Here, not so. It has a WHITE Background and BOX around it. I do not like the BOX. My WordPress THEME (iTHEME2 THEME) used to have the option in customize to make it Light or Dark. White on black, or black on white. Now it is just the dark. I never cared for the light but it would make the transparencies pop more. It’s my favorite theme since I made it my own. So, I do not want to change it.

I am really hating these border crossings

I’m trying new learning curves and the best way to do it.

Lots of Trials and Errors.

Oh and I know about the code to take out the box.

I feel like my hamster on his wheel running in circles. It’s a gif file so he runs the wheel.

Just a Second


Sands of Time

Many times in the course of a day we hear these three words.

Think about them.

A second is a : The basic unit of time.
There are 60 seconds in 1 minute and 3,600 seconds in an hour.

1 second is about as long as it takes to say “one thousand and one”

Everyone of them counts

Some even get Second Chances

 

We All Walk Alone Sometimes


Soul_Sees_Beauty_Goethe

 

When one feels they are alone in this world it is a lonely place.

Many times I have felt alone, but realize the love that surrounds me and the feelings seem to evaporate.

I have heard the saying we come into this world alone and leave it the same way.

Is being alone or lonely no more then an illusion?

A perceived perception?

Our personal reality.

“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and — in spite of True Romance magazines — we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.”

Hunter S.Thompson

In all due respect he died with a shotgun blast to his head by his hand.

I was not alone when I was born, I came from the connection of my mother who carried me lovingly under her heart.

I do not believe I will be alone when I am at the door of death. I believe angels will be surrounding me and singing to the tops of there lungs.

It exhorts the listener to continue his or her journey, despite abandonment or lack of support from others. The song is often quoted in the context of political or social change movements; Mahatma Gandhi cited it as  his favorite song.

It is a song written by the Nobel prize winning poet Rabindranath Tagore, and is a part of the Rabindra Sangeet canon.

If they answer not to thy call walk alone,
If they are afraid and cower mutely facing the wall,
O thou unlucky one,
open thy mind and speak out alone.

If they turn away, and desert you when crossing the wilderness,
O thou unlucky one,
trample the thorns under thy tread,
and along the blood-lined track travel alone

If they do not hold up the light when the night is troubled with storm,
O thou unlucky one,
with the thunder flame of pain ignite thy own heart
and let it burn alone.

 

Just Another Birthday


I still have 4 loads of laundry probably 5 by Wednesday when I realized that is the slowest day at the laundry and that is when my new laundry day will be.

I had a scare the other day. I remember washing mama’s quilt and putting it in the dryer. I had to be at the laundry first thing at 8 am the next day to be sure of getting it back.

They closed it at 5 PM and I had a few things including the quilt left in the dryer.

Mama 17

Because I have had my good under clothes and good sheets and towels stolen I have to keep an eagle eye out and check several times.

They are not open on the weekends now since that is when the thieves hit, the office is closed and they would come in with found cards and use the facility.

Anyways, after 4 hours of laundry the other day I came in and laid down. I have been so tired since the time change this year and seem to want to sleep more. When I refuse my body that wish I seem to be more forgetful.

I was laying there and thought about the quilt. I went and checked the laundry cart with wheels that I had parked in the living room. It was not there.

The dried clothes from the previous days wash were there, including the blanket Victoria made me last year. It was one regular Pissy Pants China load and the big washer load of just mama’s quilt. I used two dryers.

I came in here and with a sinking heart checked the closet and there it was !

Seems China likes Mama’s quilt so much. Every time I put it on the bed all freshly washed she decides it’s her favorite PEE spot.

I do not remember carrying the quilt back here and putting it in the closet. I would have had to have carried it solitary; and think it so odd that memory is lost.

All the rest of the clothes that I had just finished were also there.

It’s like my body was so tired I completely phased out walking back here with a HUGE quilt in my arms ???

Seriously, I am still not used to this latest time change. It has effected me very differently this year.

Tomorrow, I will be 64.

I made cyngetti last night. Rhea bought garlic and Texas Toast and we added garlic to the toast. I found the spaghetti sauce I made from scratch to be a tad runny and not thick like I had wished.

Smelling of permeated garlic we were off to see the last installment of “Breaking Dawn”

It was the best yet; as it should be~ because after all it is the Last.

I have noticed since I finally got into “The Walking Dead” and American Horror Story (Asylum) my dreams have totally taken on a new and disturbing turn.

I even watched Bob’s Zombies Eat Lead vid again last night.

My bro solo in the mountains, oh wait Zombies

Scott and his Mother will cook Thanksgiving together. He is making a Ham and since his recipe sounds so Paradise Ham familiar like mine, I said “Good Deal”

I will just make the 2 Sweet Potato pies and Rhea is making her specialty Green Bean Casserole. She uses Cr of Chicken, and Cr of Mushroom soup together. It tastes really good, different from most person’s recipe for it 🙂

Key West Paradise Ham

A precooked Spiral ham is awesome on the grill

Before baking ham, place pineapple slices on ham with toothpicks and place cherries in center of pineapple.

Do not buy Glaze in a jar…make your own sweetness Smile

In a medium microwave safe bowl combine brown sugar and reserved pineapple juice. Mix together and microwave for about 5 minutes, until mixture is thick. Pour some of this glaze over the ham about every 15 minutes in the last hour of baking, until all is used.

After heating in the oven then you can place it on the grill and continue basting for a great flavor explosion.

Roast some brown sugar and buttered squash in place of sweet potatoes for a change-up.

Why is Time Speeding Up?


Where did March go ?

It was just the first week of March it seems, and now here we are going into April Fool’s Day. I know my memory is going South of late. But, I couldn’t have missed an entire month.

It’s like things move around on me also. I put something in a certain space, and lo and behold the next day it is gone. Sometimes it is the same day

~Poof !

I actually asked the Universe to help me out here.

Did I move it and don’t remember ?

I  dropped something on my foot somewhere. I have a bruise, but for the life of me I can not remember where I was or what fell on it.

I do remember hollering.

Time

It is due to this increasing pulse rate that we feel as though time is speeding up. Why do we “feel” as though time is moving faster than it used to be?

The reason is what we once perceived to be a period of 24 hours now feels like only 16 hours. Our clocks still move in seconds, minutes and hours and still click over a full day in 24 hours but due to the earths increased heartbeat, we perceive it to be only two-thirds as long or a perception period of merely 16 hours.
