I'm Just Saying

Snow in the Upstate

Watching the local weather forecast predicting perhaps an inch or so of snow for our area in the South Carolina Upstate, I texted Paul so that when he finished his evening meeting at our church he would stop to pick up dog food for our Rosie. When he appeared an hour later he was Paul Newman’s Organic Chicken can-less.

Oprah for president?

It’s not that I don’t think the world of Oprah--what’s not to like? She’s empathetic, philanthropic, completely self-made and enormously successful. In fact, particularly when considering the impoverished and abused childhood she endured, her jaw dropping career is the epitome of the American Dream.

Our New Year’s drop

Like many a weary folk, Paul and I were on the road after Christmas but unlike the others it had nothing to do with the holidays, and so neither of us were recovering from the wrench of leaving beloved family gatherings.

When Paul declared he had experienced not so much a sign, but an actual visit from a cherished pet, I looked up with a start.

Deck those halls!

Just a couple of weeks ago I wrote about how Thanksgiving is so often bulldozed by everything that’s wrong about Christmas: commercialism, materialism, fighting over sales items instead of savoring time with loved ones.

This week I feel as if I’m experiencing a 180 in regards to decorating.

Whose woods are these?

Last weekend I pounced on the opportunity of seeing Paul in action with the chain saw, taking down some rotted pines behind our manure pile.

I should explain that when I say ‘our’ manure pile, I mean the horses.

“Please, please,” I begged, “can we go clear the trails now?”

If I could only remember

Not too long ago, Paul and I were chatting with a friend during the after church coffee hour when the subject of cars came up. More specifically, manual transmissions versus automatic. He has a stick shift because he far enjoys the driving experience with it in his sports car, and we have a stick shift because it made our new car a lot cheaper.
