Just Talking
7/23/2005 8:04:59 AM
My thoughts this morning about a lot of things
After four months, here I am again, talking to My Blog. I have suffered a huge loss this summer, the loss of my last sister, Maizie. She would have been 83 this summer, a couple years younger than me. So that leaves me the last of the clan to carry on. Eleven broters and sisters have left me all alone on this earth. No, I'm not alone because I have my own family, my three kids, my six grandkids and my seven great grandkids.

I also have my writing, my crochet and my cooking to keep me busy and happy. I feel I still have a lot to offer, to my husband of 62 years, to my family, to myself, and yes, even to the world. I don't expect to make any earth-shaking changes in the world, but would like to contribute a little bit in my own small way to make this a better place to be.

In my almost-85 years of life I have had three small busineees which could have been great had I stayed with any one of them. I have taken art classes, writing classes, and English classes. Though I am legally blind, I am able to write, crochet and cook using modern vision aids to assist me. I'm not a quitter, and I love work. One of my philosophies is to keep busy doing something and that makes me happy. Accomplishing anything at all is much better than doing nothing. I think everyone needs work to keep them happy.

I have visions and dreams of writing more books. My sequel to Prairie Rattlers, Long Johns and Chokecherry Wine is finished, just waiting for a publisher. My daughter Marlene is working with me on the next one which has a working title of South Dakota Cowboy. It's a story about my husband's childhood amd early adulthood when he learned how to break and ride wild horses on the South Dakota prairie. I think it will be a best-seller. My daughers marlene and Valerie are working with me on a series of cookbooks. Crazy Cakes will be the first edition of many titled Tickle Your Cookin' Bone. I am working on a book of my original crochet designs titled Em's Crochet Designs.

That's my thoughts for this morning. I'll be back soon. Emma
