Dandelion, Books and Skype

12 Mar

1   There were a number of beautiful golden Dandelions in the garden today, until the lovely Mr S mowed the lawn for the first time this year.



2   We have a tendency to pop things on the stairs when they need to be put away up there and I had ‘tidied away’ the poetry books I was using on Saturday when trying to decide which one to read for International Women’s Day. I’ve been walking past them and liking them, not taking them back to their shelves just yet so here they are – fabulous collections of poems all by women.

    I have grown to love Skype and the fact that you can be ‘closer’ to loved ones that are far.

    Those lovely little Dandelions that everyone wants to get out of their yards… I have always found them quite pretty…
    At our home where I grew up…the staircase was always crowded with things to bring up…I admit to walking over it sometimes while I was young…
    Never have used skype…but, would definitely have it…if my Grandkids were far from me…

    I’m setting in my office at my work, preparing to go home soon and outside my window there is a blizzard raging with high winds, visibility down past 50 meters to nil in places. And you have dandelions, oh lawd. Oh well, just grin, growl and bear it.
