These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

I love being home!

Coming home was good, very good. I enjoyed visiting with my sister, we got a lot done toward her move, the bed I slept in was very comfortable, and generally speaking, things couldn't have been better. I was relaxed about the dogs. They were in good hands with Linda, here at home in their own world, and I had the sweet little Chihuahuas to keep me company. I wasn't unhappy about being away. But all that having been said, it is good to be home.

Before my stay was over, I had to go buy a long sleeve shirt and a light knit jacket/sweater. The temperatures weren't bad, but the wind cut right through me for some reason. I was chilled the whole time I was there. I don't know if that had anything to do with being sick. Well, I don't think so. I actually think I got some bad food. Anyway, I was better after adding some layers and longer coverage. The winds seemed somehow brutal. I have a lot of wind here, and it is generally colder here, yet those winds on the West Texas Plains just did something very unpleasant to me. Once again, I'm glad to be home!

One of my friends decided to do an impromptu pot luck tonight. I have to run to the store for a couple things for that, and get my dish made. It will be good to see everyone. I missed the Super Bowl pot luck, so I haven't seen the whole group since early December. I loved her words on the recorder. She has new neighbors and thought it might be nice to introduce them to "some of the goofier people here"!! I resemble that remark!!! Actually, I find that a comfort and a compliment. I hope I'm always the kind of person that people remember for my lively side!

I guess I'd better get to the store. More later! Or tomorrow, whichever comes first!

  1. Welcome home. Travelling is nice, but there really is no place like home.

    Sounds like a fun pot luck.

  4. Moni, thank you! The pot luck will be fun, as always. The new neighbors aren't mine, but one of my friends in town. However, they may be new friends, who knows?
