Finally a dry day today and I decided I'd better mow while I could. As I sat on the mower I observed how things were growing. In my front yard, I have a tamarisk tree which is covered in tiny pink blooms right now. The only reason I have it is because my paternal grandparents had one in their yard and I always liked it. As I was thinking about it I wondered if my siblings remembered Grandma's tree. I know my younger sister probably doesn't and my brothers probably do. Then I wondered about my other sister Pam who's been gone for over 3 years now and I realized one of the things I miss the most. She's not here to ask, "Do you remember.....?" "Do you remember wading in the creek in Arkansas?" "Do you remembr the big family reunions?" "Do you remember when we went to the beach and threw Ritz crackers to the seagulls?" "Do you remember all the late nights we chatted online after everyone else had gone to bed?" I do. I remember all this and so much more. Miss you Pam.
I'm an Iowa gal and live on an acreage with my hubby and several cats. My husband is bi-polar which makes life interesting and frustrating at times. We have 1 son who also lives in Iowa. I've always liked to read and I'll always give my honest opinion about books and everything else (which sometimes people don't appreciate). I also love to enter sweeps, do different crafts, garden, and spend time with friends and family. You can reach me by emailing winterset AT peoplepc.com
Due to the fact that I sometimes forget to say, please always assume that all of the new books and products that I review are ones that I have received free, in exchange for a possible review post. Whether I win a new book or purchase a used book at a flea market or garage sale and review it, does NOT affect my reviews. I always try to be nice, but if I don't think something is great, I’ll say. When I'm finished with a book (or product), I either keep it for myself, or give it away to someone who I know will enjoy it. I DO NOT SELL the books or products that I have received for free.
