Hello Again, It's Nearly Fall...

 It's been a long time. I thought I'd check in and see how many people are still blogging from the old days. Blogger has changed so much, I had to work my way through how to post all over again.

I'm still in the midwest, out on the prairie. Youngest Daughter and grandson said they are reading Laura Ingalls Wilder's book, The Long Winter, about her life on the prairie as a child.

Youngest Daughter's last text said the Ingalls family was huddled in the kitchen trying to keep warm. Snow had nearly made movement outside impossible, and the cow stopped giving milk due to lack of nourishment. 

To make matters worse for the Ingalls, snow blocked the train from making deliveries to their small town, so seemingly there was no hope in sight...a hard scrabble life for sure!

Maybe reading The Long Winter will make life look pretty good for all of us right now.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. Really good to see you again. Yes I'm still blogging, in fact I'm trying to get back into it again although I have to say the blogging community isn't what it used to be. I think all the awful crap that's gone on in the last few years has changed us all, forever.

    1. Sad to hear. But stay with it. If nothing else, it’s fun to go back and see your life 5 or 10 years ago.

  2. I'm still blogging and often. New blogger isn't THAT different after you've done it a few times (just sometimes frustrating!) I do hope you'll stop by! Jeanie from Marmelade Gypsy

  3. Still here - although I have not been as consistent as I would like...Nice to hear from you ♥

  4. I read the book "The Long Winter" almost every year, and think it does make life look better now than it was back then. A simpler time then, but not easier. It's good to see your post! Cheryl H.

  5. Well that's the truth! It's so good to hear from you. I'm still blogging too, just not as often. I've about run out of things to talk about. Oh, I remember your Mr. Pumpkin. Hope you will come back soon. I've sure thought about you.

  6. I am so glad you're back! I have wondered and worried about you. Hugs, my friend!
