Random Fragmented Rambling

As the old saying goes, better late than never!
Without a lot of preamble I will wrap up the week with a few fragmented rambles.

 This last week has been a very emotional week for me. Tomorrow it will be two years since my dear husband left this world. More and more I find myself reminded of the scene in "Anne of Avonlea" where old Mrs. Harris speaking to Anne of her late husband says "How could he go away and leave me alone and crippled like this? Dying was the only thing that he ever dared to do without consulting me. …" I remember watching that scene and laughing at the thought that she was so domineering that she even expected her husband to get her permission before he died. But now, oh now I understand her anguish and in my head often relive those very words. By the way if you haven't seen the Anne of Green Gables movies yet, I highly recommend them. They are long but packed full of laughter.

On Thursday February 13th we welcomed my latest granddaughter, Kylie Mae into the family! She came in at 21 inches long weighing 8lbs 15oz. My oldest son is now blessed with three beautiful daughters.

This week has gone by in a blur both figuratively and literally. I'll post more about the literal blur on With All My Senses in the next day or two. As for the figurative; Between my part time job, doctor visits and SSI appointments there was little chance to do much else.

The moon was really pretty last night. I really should have set up the tripod for a better shot but after a long day I just didn't have the energy.

In my humble opinion all houses should have a front porch. If ours did, I know where I would have spent the week. You can see more of this house and other old houses here in Rapid City in this post.

My youngest son and one of Artistix Networks' prized artists is getting married in September. Of course this means I need a new dress! Here is the one I want, but I have a feeling it will clash with the pastel green and yellow wedding colors.... :(

That wraps up my fragmented rambles for the week. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and remember to hop over and share some blog love with Nancy at A Rural Journal  and Mrs 4444's.  at Half past kissin time.

Your new grandaughter looks healthy! I'm sorry that your husband isn't here to share in the joy. I so want to see my husband become a grandparent with me; I hope I get my wish.

I have a porch with a bench, but I rarely take the time to sit out there. Guess I shouldn't take it for granted!

Have fun dress shopping! Thanks for linking up.

So sorry to hear of your husband's passing. We just have to believe we will see our beloved ones again.

I love houses with a front porch and the dress you picked out is pretty..Maybe they have a different color for you!
