Gosh, I have not posted for two weeks

It is not that I don't care.  I probably care too much.  I get so wrapped up in what is happening that I sometimes just get to angry.  I just have to take some time to think my thoughts through.  Blogging about it is not going to change it.  It has probably landed me on some watch list.  I am in good company though:) Cause I know all of you would be there also.
My computer also crashed two weeks ago.  I had to send it away to the Computer Hospital.  Of course I had nothing backed up so I lost everything.  I think if I let myself think about it, I am sorriest about losing my pictures of DC and Hawaii.  Only possessions though, can't take them with me. But..........................I could have left them to my children to fight over who gets to throw them all away.
Spending many hours caring for my mother.  That takes much of my energy.  I stay with her on Mondays and Fridays, a sister on Tuesday and Thursday and nieces rotate Wednesday. My sister and I each live a hour (me) or more (sister) from her so the drive is also a bear.
I am also spending lots of hours knitting for my church project.  If anyone is interested in hand knit items, let me know.  I put all the profit into a savings account to help build a church for my friend Mwenebolongo, in Dar es Salaam.  If you are interested in what I make, I often post pictures on my other blog. You can go take a peek.
I guess what I am saying, is that I am tired.  I need a rest.  I need to not think about the world (like that is going to happen) that consumes me.
Maybe after all of the Arizona news is old news, I may feel like once again adding my two cents into the fray.
Love you all and really do appreciate your friendship.


  1. Hi Evy! Sorry about all your computer issues....they seem to catch up with everybody..eventually. We now use Carbonite. It's reasonably priced and you don't have to worry about doing a back up yourself. We did it because of our pictures. It's worked really well so far.

    Hang in there!

  2. Gramma, I know how you feel. Right after the election I allowed myself to feel some little relief about the possible slowing of the degrading of our republic. But I no longer feel that, easing of tension. The left is stepping up its attacks and I'm told to feel bad about my anger and hatred for the fundemental shifts that have been foisted upon me and my children.

    Every day I see the fruits of my labors grow smaller and smaller, and the common sense solutions that would fix the very real problems are left out of the conversations in the seats of power.

    Rage doesn't even enter into it. That is the least of the feelings I feel. It's the reason that I don't write more often. I KNOW that I'm on a watch list somewhere. And I know that sooner or late, I will have to either run or go to prison for my views. You are not now nor will you ever be alone in your views and stance for this nation. I love and pray for your strength and safety.

    Keep your powder dry, lady.

  3. Thanks, Grey, maybe anger was the wrong word. It is really a feeling of helplessness. It does not seem, at times, to matter what any of us feel or think, they are going to do it their way any way.

    Nancy, I have been thinking about carbonite. Rush says it is good, so it must be:)

  4. Grandma, Don't forget that we've already read the "last chapter!"


I really do care what you think. However, if you are rude or use vulgarities, you will be deleted. Let us have an open and intelligent discussion here.
