I‘m an elderly lady with three grown children, two teenage granddaughters, two great grandkids, and two cats. I love to listen to the news, while I work on my four blogs and my poems website. I paint ( watercolors ) and I read, write poetry, and eat lots of junk food and love my morning cup of coffee. I do container gardening on my deck and porch. I have rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia and I’m somewhat housebound but still very positive. I like to watch old and new movies that are clean funny and sad but with a happy ending. Most importantly, I am a Jehovah’s Witness and spend many hours writing letters as a way to give encouragement to all. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and find out a little bit about me. It would be nice if you could leave a comment to tell me a little about you and your blog.

When I was in second grade my aunt gave me a little book of poems called, “A Child’s Garden of Verses” written by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was one of my gifts that didn’t interest me much so I put it on the shelf in my room and never gave it another thought for many months. I can’t tell you how much time had passed before I discovered the little blue book on my shelf and decided to open it up. I loved the poems and read them often. I was always rhyming things in my head as a child but never wrote things down. I have a slight learning disability, did poorly in school, and quit the day I turned sixteen. For many years I kept busy as most do with taking care of home and family and friends and pets and working, and so on. I did keep up with my painting and they made nice gifts to give out to friends for every occasion. Now I’m old and crippled with rheumatoid arthritis and somewhat housebound, hence the Blogs and websites to keep myself busy and I began to write poems. My poems are not sophisticated or brilliant, just simple writings filled with memories of my childhood, my imagination, my experiences in life, and my plight with arthritis. I love my poems and don’t mind saying so. I hope to post some of my short stories when I get brave enough.
