About elizabethblack


Just a reader, not a writer. I strive to be quiet and listen. I have opinions, but try hard to be respectful and not let an opinion of mine, expressed without care, cause upset.
I live in a very rural area. A beautiful area, but have to drive a distance for a real choice in shopping.
I don't have the time I'd like to have to be online reading and participating in the forums.

Seems real life and it's demands get in the way of the complete life of leisure I desire.

If only I had self cleaning everything - and four full time gardners. I love to garden, but the weather must be absolutely perfect. Just looking forward to spending more time here and reading and getting familiar.

I had pretty much the same day as Sara. Late getting up and not a lot accomplished. I don't know if any of you are friends with Golf-Nut on that other site. Keith has been nursing his wife for over a year and she just passed away. Some of his friends are expressing condolences on his profile page.

And of course, yesterday was our dear Henrietta's birthday. Shy and modest, but one of our favorite people. I do hope her day was one of great fun.

icon_smile hi everyone
A chilly but sunny day here
A large iced coffee sounds yummy in the tummy.
Lots of cookies to choose from
*peeking in the cookie jars *
Giggles we need blankets in here for nap time
*puts some comfy overstuffed chairs in the corners and putting comfy chairs around the tables *
Stay safe everyone!

Sara, that was the finishing touch to lure me to the coffee house even if I don't have exciting things to talk about. That wonderful coffee and delightful varieties of teas, the cookies I have been sneaking in an stealing....and now butterscotch marshmallow bars! Every cookie you make it so delicious, but you have outdone yourself with the butterscotch marshmallow bars.
Then, to top it all off you bring comfy chairs and blankets and quilts.
But I warn you, once I get comfortable I may just fall asleep and never leave.
Just wanted to say thank you and Bill and Scott and Larry and all who make this such a happy place. See you all later.

Tilda Green

It is surprising how much changes in a lifetime. Cars, airplanes, refrigerators, telephones, electric stoves, big highways all over the country. All sorts. And people. Gosh, what changes. For instance, there was a little baby girl born in Tennessee and named Annie. Now, the parents of Annie’s daddy said they didn’t want that baby girl to go with her mother when she went to Washington, D.C....

Back to School Challenge: High School Disaster Averted

  High school is starting and I should be so excited.  I am going to high school and my expectations are over the moon.  Maybe just a little nervous ‘cause there will be so many students and teachers there I haven’t met.  I don't know if any of my friends will be in my classes. Makes me nervous to have all new people. It still feels warm, but knowing the cooler autumn weather is just...

Bewitched and Beguiled

The world revolves my angel, and once more   The time is coming when the days grow short, When happy thoughts of summer flee away,  And all around is desolate and bare.  Come fly with me to some exotic shore,  Where bathed in golden light, we two can sport, Dancing gaily on the strand all the day,  And through the night mount high into the air.   O cruel lady, tell me what I've done, ...
