Kathy Welcomes You To Her Place

Now

And Then

   I am an impulsive person and don't always stop to think before I speak.

This is my new motto.

Lord, I beg of you,

keep your arm around my shoulder ,and your hand over my big mouth..

. The face in the mirror isn't wrinkled or drawn.

My house isn't dirty, the cobwebs are gone.

My garden looks lovely and so does my lawn.

I think I might never put my glasses back on.

I was born in Manitoba, but have spent most of my life in British Columbia Our provincial bird is the Stellar Jay

,seen here sitting in a Dogwood tree. The Dogwood is the provincial flower.     I have a big extended family. One brother Dan, and four sisters

This is my brother Dan, me, Sisters Dorothy and Ruth in the back row. Margaret and Rosemary in the front.

I have been a widow almost as long as I was a wife. I am the mother of four adult daughters and one adult son. 

.I became a Grandma for the fourteenth time in November /04. This time it is another lovely little girl.  "They are all growing up so fast that I could be a Great-Grandmother before I know it."  

 Now the girls out number the boys.  I have many nieces and nephews and some great nieces and nephews as well, almost too many to count. 

I  have joined a world-wide group called Book crossing Members register their books and label them with a special identity number. This way we can track them as they travel the world. We leave our books out where someone can find them, a park bench, a table in a coffee shop, a doctors office, or anywhere open to the public. We hope that the finder will take the book home to read and make a journal entry, so that we will know that the book is in new hands. Members also trade books or start a Book ray where the book is passed from one member to the next with each participant making an entry when they finish the book.

I wrote this poem for a contest on Bookcrossing, and actually won a prize. A book of course. We do fun things like this.
As I look out my window I scream with delight, the fast falling snow has turned my world white. The children are running and laughing with glee. They build a fat snowman who looks like me. The birds are not singing, they're hiding in fear. A soft footed cat could be drawing near. Spring will soon come. Warm days will appear. But right now I'm wishing that Hawaii was near.
