Peaches 🍑

Our free peach tree about a year and 1/2 old has five small peaches. We’re not sure if they’re ready for picking. We’ll give them another few days. Hoping whatever is eating leaves off our cherry 🍒 tree doesn’t get them.

As always more to come.

So, … Random Musings

Uh ya.  Here we go here we go now.  Is that a song lyric?  Well it is Song Lyric Sunday after all.  #SLS in da house.  Today’s prompt was metaphor and ya know I am geeking out.  Checks two boxes for moi.  Here is what I picked but check out all the other entries too.  There are some really good ones already cued up and ready to be heard.

So, …

I am in a pretty good head space.  Was a bit whirlwind-ish lately but all is tracking back into place.  For now.  I almost went to we should’ve done this four years ago but stopped short because guess what? we’d didn’t and we cannot go back.  No time for regrets.  All we have is this moment.  Another song lyric I believe.

The kid-let is better and when she is better, I am better.  No fair of me to hang that on her.  My happiness needs to be independent from hers.  I know that.  I do not tell her these things.  Nope, that is what I do here.  I unleash the hounds on a place she will never go.

All of my kid-lets are pretty light on the use of social media.  And by light I mean the forums they choose to use not the volume of their usage.  Pony has a twitter but won’t tweet.  Wise? I am not too sure but she left FB and WP behind.  Lulu uses SnapChat and tells me that’s it.  Of course they may be fooling me and just not want me to follow them around the ether-world.  And ya know, if that’s the case, that is for the BEST!  Cuz they know me.  I am much better off completely in the dark.  Mom is so, …. jumpy.  Well yes, yes I do resemble that remark.

I think we need for find a middle ground of what I know and what I don’t know about their lives.  Like anything else balance is key … healthy.  If I know everything, I am going to try to control everything.  To step in and help whether solicited or not.  And meddling mom has NOT worked out so far.  In this moment, I am stepping back and have become observer/supporter.  If one of them fails, they will get back up and be stronger. Painful as it could be to watch, it’s time to let things unfold.

Any who, I am off to finish my book – the one I am reading not writing.  Swan Song by Robert McCammon is highly recommended.  I will review it shortly.

Wishing you all a fantastic Sunday!

As always, more to come.

Limelight
Song by Rush
Lyrics
Living on a lighted stage
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality
Beyond the gilded cage
Cast in this unlikely role
Ill-equipped to act
With insufficient tact
One must put up barriers
To keep oneself intact
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme
Living in a fish eye lens
Caught in the camera eye
I have no heart to lie
I can’t pretend a stranger
Is a long-awaited friend
All the world’s indeed a stage
And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another’s audience
Outside the gilded cage
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme
Living in the limelight
The universal dream
For those who wish to seem
Those who wish to be
Must put aside the alienation
Get on with the fascination
The real relation
The underlying theme
The real relation
The underlying theme
