Spring Is In the Air

It is finally warm outside here, in The Middle. Buds are on the trees and some have blossoms. Birds are singing and nesting and flying north once again. I have longed for this. Winter lasted a long time this year and kept coming back every now and then. I do believe it is finally gone.Continue reading “Spring Is In the Air”

A Castle and a Stone – Part X – MY Scottish Journey

Our final full day in Scotland landed on a Sunday. Perfect. We woke up and my daughter-in-law served up her daily cup of coffee and we prepared for the day. This day was packed with sites and emotions. I hate saying goodbye to my kids. I was relieved and thankful to have been a partContinue reading “A Castle and a Stone – Part X – MY Scottish Journey”

The Beach – Part IX – MY Scottish Journey

The next mini trip was, again, challenging to my emotions and body. I am still struggling to understand the emotions of this trip. IContinue reading “Part VI of MY Scottish Journey”

Part V – MY Stone of Destiny

Last year my husband and I came across a movie to stream called “Stone of Destiny“. We were pleasantly surprised. Not only did it star Charlie Cox – aka: Dare Devil, but the plot was based on the true story of Scotland’s Stone of Scone and a few university students who actually stole it fromContinue reading “Part V – MY Stone of Destiny”

Another Glimpse of December

Here we are, almost into the middle of December and just now the weather has gotten cold. That’s ok. It makes winter even shorter, at least in my head. Here are some images before the weather turned at Pertle Springs. Such blue skies and water. Then we have the culprit that brought in the cold.Continue reading “Another Glimpse of December”
