This is my banter for Friday October 4th…

I wish to let all my readers know that as of October 5th to October 18th… Unfortunately, I will be unable to post my words.. My next post will be on Monday October 21st.. Thank you for your understanding… 🙂 🙂 MAGS..

This is my banter for Friday October 4th…

Hello everyone out there in this big world:: This week has passed by with the speed of a moving train.. The fluctuation of the weather patterns have made being outside almost impossible.. Once this week it was way above seasonal temperatures, and the next it’s so darn cold.. Not only has it been cold but I have heard stories of a faint snow falling… Yikes!! “Why?” It’s not time for that kind of shenanigans… I haven’t harvested all my seeds yet for next spring…There has been a fine mist that has a granular feeling to it, falling from the heavens.. I think that is supposed to be snow.. I hope where we are headed, there are much better conditions.. I really don’t want to pack my long johns, but it maybe smart to do that.. I hope the weather is a little bit nicer where every you may reside.. I wish to send all of you good wishes for the weekend and Thanksgiving.. I hope your turkey is fat and your bellies are full.. I will have turkey, and likely fall asleep… If you have to take a nap… Blame it on the turkey..

I would chance to say that these mushrooms are not of the edible  kind… I still like the shape of the lid of the mushroom.. It’s distortion is amazing.. Bending and weaving as it grows.. The things I find interesting that there are many things happening in the mushrooms growth .. Today, I had a lady come to patch up the ceiling in the kitchen where the old fluorescent light used to be.. I was a bit set back by the contractor being a lady.. I don’t know why!!! I just did.. And when I spoke with her on the phone I was envisioning a lady with large muscles and a big thick neck.. Kind of like the Hulk’s sister.. LOL But, I was way off point.. She was tiny and quite pretty.. She was older, and very friendly… I enjoyed talking with her.. Tomorrow she will return and sand and paint the covered part of the ceiling.. Then no one will ever know the old light was there.. Mission accomplished.. I have to shop tomorrow and that is one of my dreaded tasks.. I nearly have a stroke each time the total shows up.. Food is way too pricey.. I would imagine that most people feel the pull on the wallet when buying the necessities of  life..

Friday is the day that our grandson moves out.. We are going to miss him a lot.. The house will be much quieter, and the meals will be less to prepare.. We have left him with these words.. “You will always be welcomed back here, and the bed upstairs will be made up waiting for your return.” We told him to keep his key and just unlock the door and come in.. We wish him good fortune, and happiness.. We love him very much.. ;(  I know he is going to be fine.. He’s a man now, and can make his own life.. But we will still worry about him, as we do all our grand-children.. 🙂 🙂

It’s Thursday night and I have pretty well gone over all I wanted to say and more.. One thing I wish to do is wish my friend Kelly a speedy recovery.. Get well real soon girl.. Take care of those you love and be safe out there… I will see everyone with a bunch of words and photos, once I return… Till later.. Keep on truckin’…

I wish to thank all my readers for being here each day to read my words.. Thanks… 🙂 🙂    Enjoy the photos.. 🙂 🙂

An adventure…

This is my banter for Friday September 6th…

Hello everyone:: Thursday went way to fast.. I hope your Thursday was an acceptable one.. We have come even closer to the weekend and a break from the money making hustle.. Driving down busy streets or highways is an endless journey many people take each day.. The countless hours lost with family.. The all mighty dollar calls all of us.. It shapes what we are and how we live.. Our habits, and our needs.. Sometimes it makes us who we are.. Our future evolves around money making.. We are slaves of the corporations that pay us that all mighty dollar.. We march to the beat of their drum.. It’s an endless march that is broken when the weekend comes.. Then we are independent operators of our lives.. We do what we want and when we want to.. For two or three days we are in charge.. Then after that brief escape we are poisoners again.. I thank god for the time we get to breath and relax.. So take in that deep breath and enjoy your weekends..

I will be on such an adventure for the next ten days.. I will not be posting any banter, from Saturday September 7th until the day of  Tuesday September 17th.. There will be no internet where we are going.. Hence, the lack of banter being posted.. There will be peace and quiet.. Away from the rate race, and city life.. We will be able to gaze at the stars in the sky in pitch darkness.. The only light we will have is the fire or lantern light.. We will be able to hike to the top of the mountains.. Look down upon the beauty below us.. We will hear the call of the wild.. The screech of the hawks, and the coo of the owls.. Birds will be singing.. The cicada will buzz as I lays it’s eggs in the trees.. We will hear the crickets sing, and tree frogs calling to each other.. We will hear the buzzing of the bees.. I will smell the fish in the waters before me.. We will hear the crunching of the branches as a deer walks past.. We will swim in the cool waters of a lake.. We can walk down abandoned railway tracks that lead us into the fog.. We shall walk through the forest haze.. We will see the shadows that follow us there..

We will feast on food that has been cooked over an open fire.. We will dance around the fire as many have before us.. I will feel the cool breezes caressing my face as my mind wonders into the light of the fire.. I will watch as the fire flies dance in the night.. I will feel freedom from that which is left behind.. I will visit places I have never seen, and talk to people I do not know.. I will be here where I have wanted to be for so long.. I will carry my camera by my side and capture the beauty I see with my eyes.. I can share that which I see with everyone I know.. I will gather memories to keep for all time.. To look back on the past, and feel calm inside.. For I will be there once again..

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a good week coming up.. I am looking forward to the adventure that we are embarking on.. The time away is going feel like a renewal of my former self.. Go find your adventure, and rejuvenate yourself.. You’ll love the journey.. Till I return in ten days.. I wish everyone hope, love and peace.. This gal has got to get moving… Take care of yourselves and your loved ones.. Be safe when you travel and enjoy each day.. Till later.. Keep the shiny side up… 🙂 🙂 🙂 :0

I would like to thank all my readers for being here each day.. Thanks.. 🙂 🙂   I would like to thank all the fantastic artists for their creations in this banter.. Enjoy  🙂 🙂
