It's been a year since we moved into our house! August 26th was the official one year mark. I can't believe what a year it has been, either. I think last fall may have been the hardest time I've ever had? Anyways, here's hoping this fall will be better?

In any case, I dreamt about my Grama last night. It was so nice to see her. I was sort of taking care of her, like I would Buddy, but she was my Grama and it was nice to hear her voice again. It will be a year in about two weeks since she passed away.

Here's a little #tbt for you:

We took a little plane ride up to San Jose for Babe's company picnic, which was a minor league game. My buddy loves to travel!

Train tracks always remind me of Stand By Me.

Haiku Friday

Can it really be?
My last retreat this summer?
I dont believe it.

Locked in a ballroom
In lovely terranea.
No view from in here.

Its still real early.
I feel sort of lectured at.
But not singled out.

throw back thursday!

My sibling put this on the facebook last week, but I love it so many I want to share it with you here. That's me and her in 1980 in my folks' Rambler. I was younger than buddy in this pic. Same hair, though.

Buddy around the same age, with the same hair. (And lipsticks.)
