I’m Retired–No Cleaning for Me

I decided today would be my cleaning day. Rip the sheets off the bed, get them in the washer, sort other dirty clothes, clear off all sorts of stuff from my kitchen counters, clear my desk, light my coffee scented candle—and that’s when I remember—I hate cleaning. However, with the washer going and my bed […]

Down Memory Lane

Last June, my husband and I traveled to Wellsboro for the signing of my very first book at From My Shelf bookstore on Main Street. While there, I reaped an entire week of nostalgic and warm memories of my idyllic childhood. We drove into town on the Wednesday before Laurel Festival and saw the town […]

The Woes of the Everyday Housewife

Okay, so this may not be the most flattering picture of my sister. Virginia is very attractive and has always been the picture of an exquisite lady of culture. However, this picture was taken as she so skillfully demonstrated the depth of her new washing machine. Let me go back and say that for almost […]

Wisdom from Mom

With Mom in the car this morning, I took mileage for a new walking route. I have only done one mile every morning and every night for a very long time. I used to do three miles twice a day. However, my doctor said no more hills for a while, but I do want to […]

Today is the Day

Today is the day, 34 years ago, that we laid Daddy to rest in the Welsh Settlement Cemetery. October 7, 1982–the trees had taken on their fall colors of bright reds and golden yellows. I remember the crisp fall Pennsylvania air had a woodsy smell, the smell of the trees and ground preparing to take […]

Good Evening—Welcome to Tanglewood

My two week vacation in the Berkshires was extended somewhat. Mom loves the Berkshires, so I asked her if she would like to join me for the two weeks. And because she loves the Berkshires, we decided to spend more time here—like six weeks. I have to admit, I could be swallowed up here in […]

Branding Rock Trek: A Journey through Time Clover Creek— Suzanne Huxhold

There are special places in this world. Places that, for often-inexplicable reasons, attract people and extract emotion far beyond what is considered normal. The Wailing Wall, for example, Mecca. Graceland. I went to one of those places a couple months ago. It wasn’t Graceland, but it was pretty amazing. I get misty just thinking about […]

The Stories that Bind Us–A Must Read

In my internet wanderings this morning, I ran across this article about the importance of knowing our family history. Today, more than ever, family stories are being lost. Many times, we find that the younger generation is too busy carving out an income for their own family to sit and ask Grandma or Grandpa about […]

Tripping around John’s Barn

Mom is 92 years young. She is the sweetest person you will ever meet, but sometimes her thought process makes me want to tear my hair out. Oh, don’t get me wrong. Mom is definitely in charge of all her mental faculties. She can remember everything in her youth, all the birthdays of her children, […]
