Miscellany Monday - At Last

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Can I just tell you "dears" that it is sooooooooooo good to be back after way too long of a break from blogging.  I have missed you so much and I am thrilled beyond words to be sharing in MM today.  Life threw me a HUGE curve ball on June 9th and I've done good just to keep my head above water.  But, on to my MM.........

the tooth 

A week ago this past Friday I began having a strange feeling in one of my left top back teeth.  Well, that strange feeling kept getting worse and this past Wed. I had to see my Dentist.  My fear was confirmed, I had an abscessed tooth.  And, to add "insult to injury" it is a tooth that already has had a root canal and it is one of the teeth holding my permanent bridge.  So, I have had two Rocephin shots and will see the Endodontist this morning to find out, if anything, that he can do to save this tooth.  Did I really need this right now?  No, sure didn't, but then I don't need an abscessed tooth at any time. ~smile~

the new "do"

Well, I needed to do something to add a little "sass and perk" to my life and I felt like a new "do" just might do that.  So, this past week I had my hair cut and I can honestly say that I am "pleased as a peach" with it.  I don't know, but celebrating my 59th birthday this past Friday might have spurred this on. Just saying..............~giggle~  

not for every gal

I just had to try on this pair of Gladiator sandals.  I see them on women all the time but I don't think this woman will be getting a pair.  My foot felt so lost and I felt like my feet would be all anyone would see if I had these on.  Think I'll just stick with my rhinestone flipflops. ~smile~

a corner in Boston

Yes, I took this picture while Hubby and I were sitting on a park bench in downtown Boston last Saturday evening.  Obviously these gals were either going to or leaving a wedding.  And, who knows, maybe that's the bride wearing white????  Needless to say, it was indeed a "sight to behold."

This "street lady" came and sat down on the bench next to ours that same night in Boston.  She was one of many that we saw and they all pull these type carts with, what I suppose, is their earthly possessions.  You will find the benches and ledges full of these folks by dark as they prepare to "bed down." I sat there thinking that that each and every one of them had a "story." And, while their present set of circumstances could possibly be different,  it was still very sad for me to witness.  I mean this is the United States of America. ~sigh~

the night sky
This was the sky that same Saturday night in Boston as darkness set in.  Can I just say it was stunning!

daughter's blog

I can't close without giving my favorite (and only) daughter a "shout out" for her blog.  She has "played at" blogging before but she seems to be fairly serious about it this time.  So, I invite you to drop by and tell her that her Mom sent you by. ~smile~  You can find her at The Broome Bunch.

 Again, it has been therapy for my soul doing this entry and I look forward to visiting with many of you this week.  Please continue to pray for my Dad.  He/we are on a long, long journey.  Hugs to you all!

  1. It is so good to read your words and "hear" your voice. I am sorry about your tooth. As you know I know -- pain is no good -- and I'll be praying for answers, fixes and healing.

    Love your new do. It's beautiful and so flattering for you. Of course, you are beautiful -- so I can't imagine any hair cut that wouldn't look good on you!

    Continuing to pray for you and your dad. And off to read your daughter's blog.

    With love,


  2. So glad to see you back blogging; you've been missed. Sorry to read of your dental woes ...not fun.

    Happy birthday to you! You don't look a day over 40. I love the haircut. It looks great on you. I got mine cut shorter on Saturday but not sure I like it. :(

    I will have to check out your daughter's blog. It's always fun to meet a new blogger and welcome her.

    Blessings and love,

  3. Glad you back and love the new do! We saw a few homeless in NY this past weekend. So sad.

  4. Nice to have you back in blogland. Not that you really, but the hiatus was too long:O)

    Happy birthday and you sure don't look 59. I like the new "do". That sky is stunning. Nice angle you got on the photo with the architecture silhouetted. And that bride with the mini skirt? Definitely different. I bet you could write a whole post on your feelings you experienced as you watched the homeless folks in Boston. Take care and keep blogging.

  5. So glad to see you back. I love your new cut ... but I do believe you'd be beautiful in just about any hair style. ;-)

    Praying for a good solution for your tooth ... and of course, continuing to pray for you and your dad.

  6. Oh dear...sorry about your tooth. Teeth are on my list of things to ask God about when I get to heaven : )

    I'll check out your daughter's blog. That's fun for you...I really enjoy reading my daughter's perspective on things.

  7. I love the new do! It's beautiful! Hate to hear about your tooth ~ yikes! Praying all works out well for you.

  8. I love the new do! It's beautiful! Hate to hear about your tooth ~ yikes! Praying all works out well for you.

  9. I've missed you my friend! So sorry about that tooth. Ouch! You are rockin that new hair do! You look absolutely fabulous! I'm going to stop by your daughter's blog and say hello! Love ya!

  10. What an um, "interesting" wedding party.

    I hope you get your tooth fixed without a lot of pain and trouble.

    Happy belated birthday!

  11. What a fun post..sorry about your tooth, the wedding party? looks so funny, maybe she is the running away bride, your hair looks great, I so need to do something myself.

    Have a great week...Boston I haven't been there, I must put it on the list

  12. Love your hair! And happy birthday--you do not look 59! Those sandals are cute, but not for me, either. Makes my feet hot just to look at them.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
