An ‘Eclipsing’ Hodgepodge…

1. Did you watch the solar eclipse?  

We had to settle for watching the eclipse via the television–on antenna television, no less, because the rain we were getting during the time of the eclipse knocked out Dish network!

Your thoughts?

Our personal eclipse experience was somewhat disappointing since it was cloudy and raining where we live.  We couldn’t see a thing, and it didn’t get as dark as I’d expected either.  I thought our hens might go to roost, but they totally ignored the whole thing!

Sun Chips, Moon Pies, Starburst candies, a Blue Moon beer, a Sunkist orange, or a Milky Way candy bar…what’s your favorite eclipse related snack on this list?

I like Moon Pies best, especially with an ice-cold bottle of coke or an old-fashioned RC Cola.  Does anybody else remember those days?

2. What are you ‘over the moon’ about these days?

I can’t think of a thing that I’m ‘over the moon’ about, but I’m always grateful for each new day I get to spend with Ed.

What’s something you enjoy doing every ‘once in a blue moon’?

Every ‘once in a blue moon’ I enjoy getting together with our long-time friends from high school, Herman and Diane.  We always have a great time when we all get together.

Earlier in the summer we all got together to celebrate Diane’s birthday, and we had a great time.  We spent some time on the beach at Tybee Island, then we all stopped at one of our favorite restaurants [on the way home] to eat.  Diane didn’t have anything to wear except her bathing suit and a cover up, so I loaned her the sundress I happened to have with me. This was hilarious because Diane probably wears an extra-small, while I wear an extra-large!  You can imagine what we all looked like after a day on the beach, as well.  The waitress sat us at a corner table, and Herman joked with her that she must be trying to hide us 🙂  Fun times!

3. Tell us about something in the realm of science that interests you. How do you feed that interest?

I enjoy watching the tadpoles in our fishpond morph into frogs.  I also enjoy feeding and watching our hummingbirds.  The past several years we’ve only had a couple of hummingbirds, but, this year, we have a lot more.  They’ve kept us quite busy keeping our two feeders filled!

4. What are a few things you remember about going back to school as a child?

I remember getting new shoes and having to break them in, usually some kind of loafer or a pair of saddle oxfords.  I also remember being nervous about my new teacher and who was in my class.  I’m not a fan of change, so the beginning of each new school year was always hard for me.

5. I’ve seen several versions of this around the net so let’s make one of our own…share with us five words that touch your soul and briefly tell us why.

Let me begin by saying…this was hard!  I wasn’t quite sure what to do and it was hard to pick just five words, but I tried.

LOVE- because my life would not have been nearly as awesome as it has been, without the love of the good man I married, or the three children I gave birth to!  I am a blessed woman.

MARRIAGE- because God blessed me with such an awesome partner, our marriage has been the best part of my life.  45 years and counting…

FAMILY-because there comes a time, in most marriages, when it begins to feel a bit like something (or someone) might be missing…  So thankful God blessed us with three babies to make our family complete.

FAITH-because I’m saved by grace through faith.  I’m a believer!

PRAYER-because it’s the life-line to my heavenly Father.  He’s a great listener, and he’s always available.  He hears and answers my prayers.

Random:

I may not get around to making many visits today.

Unfortunately, another stye came on my eye, three weeks ago, and it’s turned into another chalazion cyst.  I’ve been using eye drops and hot compresses, but it still persists.

I’ll be seeing my ophthalmologist, today, about having it removed.  I can’t believe I just had a chalazion removed [on the other eye] in February, and now I have another one!  I was put to sleep for the first removal, but he may want to remove this one in the office.  Your prayers would be appreciated.

  1. Praying for ou. My daughter got those when she was little. No fun.

    I said moon pies too. I love to put them in the microwave for just a couple of seconds and then eat them when they are just a little melted and have a nice co,d glass of milk. Yummy

  2. Baby M’s mommy had one of those and had to have it removed. I’ll certainly remember you in my prayers. I don’t remember too much about Moon Pies but I did love putting Tom’s peanuts in my coca-cola bottle. 🙂

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever had a moon pie. I’m thinking they have marshmallow in them? You are a blessed woman. I like the words you chose and why. I hope your eye will be all right. I’ve not heard of that before.

  4. I am praying as I leave this comment that your eye condition heals quickly and the Lord gives you the grace you need through the process. I have never heard of this before. It sounds painful! Hugs!

  5. Prayers offered for you! I enjoyed reading your answers! Blessings abound!!

  6. I’m sorry about your eye and hope you were able to get it taken care of. I had a lot of styes as a child, and they were miserable. Your friend story was sweet : )

  7. I am totally with you on the Moon Pie thing, except I prefer an ice cold glass of milk with mine. I’m sorry about your cyst.I hope it gets removed without too much discomfort. Prayers certainly coming your way. SWMBO and I watched the eclipse on TV also. We didn’t get too excited about it. Our two little dogs could not have cared less. All the best to you and Ed.

  8. I do remember an ice cold bottle of soda! That would be interesting watching a tadpole turn into a frog. Your five words are great. Hope things went well at the ophthalmologist. Take care…..
