this mortal coil - Another Day


The kettle's on, the sun has gone, another day
She offers me Tibetan tea on a flower tray
She's at the door, she wants to score
She really wants to say

I loved you a long time ago, you know
Where the wind's own 'Forget me nots' blow
But I just couldn't let myself go
Not knowing what on earth, now, there was to know

But I wish that I had 'cause I'm feeling so sad
That I never had one of your children
When across the room, inside the tomb, a chance has waxed and waned
The night is young, why are we so hung up in each other's chains?

I must take her and I must make her while the dove domains
And feel the juice run as she flies
Run my wings under her sighs as the flames of eternity rise
To lick us with the first born, the lash of dawn

Oh, really, my dear, I can't see what we fear
Standing here with ourselves in between us
And at the door, we can't say no more than just another day
And without a sound I turn around and I walk away

Michigan - apple picking

even though it was cloudy in illinois this morning all you have to do is take a two hour drive east to Michigan and the sun was shining brightly.

here are a few pics of our trip to Michigan today to pick apples. what fun my boys had and to be honest it was nice to do something different. my parents (pictured) always take the trip every year to pick apples. when we were younger my parents loved going to pick tomatoes as well as they used to can it. now they just enjoy going for apples.

so after picking two big bags full of apples what will I do so many, of course some of them will be for our eating enjoyment, but I plan on giving some to my neighbor and taking some to work to share.

p.s. the cute little red apple shown below was picked especially for me by my youngest just because it was cute and small.

rest a minute

honestly what a beautiful day today, when I wake up in the morning with the sun shining so brightly the only thing I want to do is get ready and get outside.

after a long day today (its only 5:47 pm) it's time to take some time to rest a minute. so earings are off, my nice bowl of lentil soup is waiting to be had and I have my best friend coming over to have movie night.

I did get a bottle of wine, strawberries, and some nice cold shrimp to munch on... and of course there will be popcorn popping.

tomorrow I am off to Michigan with my parents to do some apple pickin. My boys should love that. hope we get to buy some pumpkins or other decorative veggies.

stay tuned you know I am bringing the camera....

old love letters ......

emotions on paper ....

sweet nothings not whispered in the ear

I found these wonderful letters at an antique store on Lagrange a year ago....

to be honest I have not read them because this is how I purchased them tied in a velvet ribbon.

so in my mind


the letter starts like this -

I AM SO IN LOVE WITH YOU BURNS THE SOUL, love is like an energy rushing and rushing inside of me, the power of love a force from above bleeding my soul, love is danger, love is pleasure, love is pure the only treasure, MAKE LOVE YOUR GOAL

the power of love by frankie goes to Hollywood

(sorry Frankie wish it was that easy....)

random words or a way that someone really feels.

I recently was told that I write in code. I guess if I do I am good at it. Actually, I guess it really doesn't matter maybe just to me - so then this leads to the next part of this entry.

lately I have been listening to Sheryl Crow.... the girl rocks I must admit.

so here are some lines that I heart from some of her songs - it goes like this.

IF YOU COULD ONLY SEE WHAT LOVE HAS MADE OF ME Then Id no longer be in your mind the difficult kind

I cross the canyon a thousand times never noticed what was mine but what you remember of me tonight well it almost makes me cry, well it almost makes me cry

It don't hurt like it did I can sing my song again.....scraped the paper off the walls....I left no trace of you at all... I can sing my song again.... took the paintings off the wall... that one of me that you called DOLL...I can sing my song again.


so enough said....

so what time is it???? time for the weekend, one more day of work and it's off to the weekend. I am throwing a party for someone tomorrow that turns 40 so it better be a great day....

lots of food coming chicken, ribs, mostaccioli (did I spell that right - I don't think so) salad, dips the works.
I hope all enjoy.

so what did I buy at the fair last weekend.... your dying to know right? well the only thing I bought was this cute little owl pictured on the side here. he is handmade of felt. he is so cute and since I did have an owl once living in one of my trees I thought it would be great to have this little guy as a symbol. hope he's full of good luck for me today. so you all have a great day. hope your weekend is full of fun and I will see ya soon.
