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.

Dearest Larry, it kind of sucks to have the pandemic and all those tests to deal with. But you always show such good stoic humor. But then, you have been fighting this battle for several years.

Guess I will try and get the kitchen floor mopped today. I know, calm down friends, everyone has a floor someplace they can mop. Lots of people are probably writing beautiful sonnets and prose or painting new images for the world to enjoy. But...hey, I'm happy with my floor today.

We don't have any cases I have heard of in our County - Shenandoah. Husband and I have gotten a cold. No fever and doesn't seem too bad. Husband went to Walmart at opening time of 7:00 a.m. and there was a line of about 35. He said they raced in the store heading for the toilet paper (I'm serious). He did see a clerk tell a person that had 2 huge bundles that one bundle was all that was allowed. People were checking out with two carts (?) each. A group of friends have decided to email daily updates to everyone else. Could be kind of boring (I hope).

Gill, you dear girl are the busiest person ever. I am upset that your Dad will be deprived of his swimming. And your aunt will miss you. Hoping too that your boys are getting everything figured out as best they can.
Bill, I too am hoping to hear that you got to visit the wife-unit.
I got my census done online today. Had gotten the second mail reminder and wanted to save the government sending any more.
I went to the Dollar General today just to get tissues, cold meds (husband), milk and extra cereal. No milk except Almond Silk so I got that to try. No tissues so I got him cheap paper towels instead.
Lots of my friends are already anxious at the thought of being confined to the house and hoping we can resume our lunches soon.

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, ...
