About Me

My photo
I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

Life's Bowl of...

Things are not great here.  They're not horrid, either, but life lately has not been easy.  As with all of us, there are good times and not so good.

Not everything is bad, though.  We've met with friends, visited with a brother who lives in Mississippi, and are enjoying our hot Maryland weather.  On Thursday I celebrated a birthday and received a new iPad which was a dual-edged sword because it won't let me into my usual sites or accept any of the passwords I provide.  

Okay -- enough whining -- here is the good.  
The gardens are in bloom.  And these bring me great joy.

Tomorrow, I go for a root canal.

Tomorrow, Agnes and I are leaving for Copenhagen and our cruise to the Baltic. Good luck with the root canal.

Your garden is lovely. Sorry about the not-so-good. Believe it or not, root canals are among the good things in life. I had my first one at the age of 16 and had to have one redone in February. Take care.

Your garden is very beautiful and I'm hoping everything went perfectly with your root canal.
