This is the day the Lord has made

On my mind

Yesterday just after my husband had put his son on the train but before it had pulled out of the station

he pulled a woman back as she tried to jump into the oncoming train.

So very sad and frightening.

What’s going on outdoors?

It's not quite dawn and still dark.

 I know that the dawn will break over the horizon though

the sun will fill the sky with it's beautiful warmth and light and colour.

From the kitchen

Meatloaf and delicious baked red potatoes with plenty of butter and green beans

and gingersnaps for dinner this evening.

Right now there is coffee.

Thanks and praises

My sister, who is receiving treatment for a return of her colon cancer

will be heading to Washington DC to address the Senate about taxing

the scanning machines they use in her treatment.

She will be representing her state. 

Joys and sorrows

Joy for the fact that my sister is alive today to be able to do this. 

It has been a very difficult year for her.

I sorrow at the incredible sadness of a woman trying to jump in front of a moving train.

I rejoice in the fact that my husband was there to save her.

What I’m wearing

My lucky picture taking shirt.

It's picture day at work.

What I’m creating

a peaceful life

I am hoping

For health in the new year.

I am reading

mostly the bible

These are a few of my favorite things

Being with my family and friends

Plans for this week

I would like to do all my homework and get ahead on some of next weeks as well.

Around the house

I have some Autumn decorations out. I would love to take out some of the Christmas things

but it's much too early....even for me. 

slow down…slow down….slow down


For the poor woman who jumped in front of the train.

A picture is worth a thousand words

After I dropped my husband off at Wonderland station I stopped 

to photograph the storm over the ocean before turning toward home.


  1. Yep, your view is pretty similar to ours when we make our way to the beach. Cold, raw, stunning in its abandoned aloneness ...

  2. Your husband is a quick thinker and a hero! I sure hope this lady will be able to get some help. Maybe someone saving her will change her mind about things, wouldn't that be wonderful! Your sister is doing such a good thing!! Hopefully this will be something very good that comes from such a bad thing. Your meals always make my mouth water. By any change are you familiar with a blog that was called "Hip Chick"? She shut her blog down years ago, but you sure remind me of her.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
