    It was cold in the stable, snow on the ground, wind in the air, a normal Christmas for this part of the country. The horses were her first love and she coo’d to them as she brushed them and cleaned them and feed them. They were like children when they were around her.

    Berashit, in the beginning, there was light…with all of the evil forces surrounding our everyday life does this connote the darkness that signals the ending? When will be become enlightened and smarten up?

    The patent laws need to be revised and made so those of us who don’t use legalize can understand them. Make it short and simple. Then we know more about the process of getting a patent on our miraculous invention.

  • spartica commented on the post, alarmist 7 years, 10 months ago

    My favorite doctor is an alarmist. I’d rather be told the bad news, the worst scenario and then have the best happen. It’s almost like a superstition with me. Even on school exams I expected the worse and was greatly relieved when it didn’t happen and I passed the exams.

    I am just awakening. The sun is shining and the sky is blue. This is a day for good things to happen. I throw off the covers and stretch. Close my eyes and open them once again so that things come into focus after a night’s rest. I slowly put on my underwear.

    How I dreamed of living in a castle. It’s halls buzzing with activity and talk and laughter. I dreamed of a handsome prince falling in love with me and asking me to be his wife. Ah, the dreams of childhood!

    Scout’s honer…that’s what he told us…he didn’t do it, Scout’s honer. What are we supposed to do as parents? Believe our child or believe the evidence. I chose to believe in our child. So did Matt. Scottie never lied to us before. Did someone frame him?

    Stick to your conviction…that is an important value to have and to instill in your children. However, it is difficult to do. You must first determine the ramifications of your conviction.

  • spartica commented on the post, iron 7 years, 11 months ago

    I hate to iron! John insists that he has nicely pressed white shirts whenever he changes, which is at least twice a day. All I do all day is iron his shirts and do his laundry. When am I supposed to cook and clean? Sometimes I feel like a slave.

  • spartica commented on the post, prosperous 7 years, 11 months ago

    Prosperous is something I am not…at least in the monetary sense. I wish I was prosperous so that I could take care of my husband and myself and my friend, Mary who is house-bound is a house that sounds like it should be condemned.

    The mist was swirling and you could hardly see a tree in front of you. The trees were abundant in this area of the woods and there were animals everywhere.

  • spartica commented on the post, warned 7 years, 11 months ago

    I can’t say that he hadn’t warned me, but I was too stubborn to listen. After all, aren’t I superwoman? I can multitask till the cows come in from the pasture and I can still party all night long.

  • spartica commented on the post, suppose 7 years, 11 months ago

    Just suppose that you take me out, what do you think might happen? Do you think that perhaps you might like me and that you are afraid of liking someone a bit too much? Do you think that perhaps you might even fall in love with me?

    I watched as you braided your gorgeous long red hair which you tell us is not red but auburn. You are so adept at everything you do and I’m memorized by you my darling Granddaughter!

  • spartica commented on the post, romantic 7 years, 11 months ago

    I am definitely a romantic…in love with love…fantasize about love…dream about love and always searching for love. I love anything that says it is romantic and I love a romantic man like my dear husband. I’d never want to be anything else but a romantic, would you?

  • spartica commented on the post, dense 7 years, 11 months ago

    Sometimes I can be so dense. I hate when it happens. It makes me feel stupid, which I am not. Density can happen to anyone, can’t it? I don’t know, but this just doesn’t make sense.

  • spartica commented on the post, playground 7 years, 11 months ago

    I love playgrounds. I love to hear the children laughing and see them playing on the swings and slides. I love to soak up their energy. It’s a great way to start the day. We have many parks where I live and I count myself lucky to be able to visit them and see them […]

  • I am so busy being preoccupied that I don’t have time for anything else. I like to procrastinate the inevitable so my mind is always preoccupied thinking about the things that worry or scare me most.

  • spartica commented on the post, port 7 years, 12 months ago

    The Port Authority was open for business. They were strictly official and were on a crusade. They were looking for someone. The description was that she had blond hair and blue eyes the color of water. She was wearing a business suit the color of port.

  • spartica commented on the post, crouch 7 years, 12 months ago

    He crouches beneath the sofa hoping to catch wind of their conversation. He knows he’s supposed to be in bed, but he has a hunch that his parents are discussing something important that he should know about. He overheard them earlier discussing that they needed to discuss something not meant for little ears.
