Welcome to P.S. Annie!

This blog is titled in honor of my great-grandmother Annie Black Gunter. My name, Suzanne, was chosen because my daddy wanted to honor his grandmother and her sister Suzie. It is a tribute to all who have gone on before me.

It is titled P.S. because, after the good-byes are said and the leaving is done, there's always just one more thing that I meant to say. So, this blog is a depository for things left unsaid, much like the P.S. at the end of a letter.

PS Annie! is a blog about family and life. As I dig deeper still into my own family history, there will be more genealogy-themed posts. For fun, I also participate in various memes and linkies. I appreciate your feedback very much.

I hope that you enjoy your visit here!

Your sis in Christ,
Suz

PS! All comments will be responded to via the blog and, on occasion, via e-mail. I am a faulty human and may miss responding sometimes or be very late in responding. Please forgive me for that. I do appreciate each comment and visit very much!

31 Days in the Moment - Red Light Runners



23 October 2014

Today started off with an adrenaline rush of sorts. I was driving around the square to get back home instead of my usual route due to road construction. Apparently, it is legal to turn left on red in one way zones in this town, but I never do it because it seems pretty stupid to me. The folks coming from the other direction evidently think that it is fine to do, forgetting all about the "if the way is clear" bit. I waited for my green light before proceeding with the left turn that I needed to make, only to look over to see an SUV thinking that we were supposed to share the same exact spot at the same time, after it ran their red light. Good grief! Thankfully we didn't hit.

We have Laynie home again for the weekend. She goes to the doctor in the morning to find out what her epizooties is and a follow-up on her eye infection. This is with the primary care doctor. He is supposed to give a referral to the ophthalmologist for a better exam, which hopefully will be tomorrow, too, since we have to have her back on campus Sunday evening and we can't keep making trips into the city like we've been doing for a multitude of reasons.

One of our little kitties, either Yin or Yang (I'm not sure which), seems to have gone missing. We've only seen one of them for several days now. Wherever this kitty is, I hope it is okay!

31 Days in the Moment - Free at Last!



22 October 2014

Maggie is in the dentist office now, waiting to have her braces removed. She feels really bad as she is still pretty congested, but also there is no joy as there was when we last came here.

She was supposed to have her braces removed last month. She spent over a month being all excited about them coming off, couldn't sleep the night before, etc. Then, we got here and they told her that they couldn't remove them because the cast for the retainer had been done wrong. They knew about this error for about two weeks before that appointment and didn't even bother to call so that they could go ahead and re-do the cast. When she came out of the office that day, she was so mad that a King Cobra wouldn't have stood a change against her!

Hopefully, today will work out differently for her and she will come out of there wire-free.

 
Update! YAYAY! Mags came out of the dentist's office with a huge smile on her face. The braces have now been replaced by a retainer. She has to wear the retainer all day and night (except during meals) for a week and, afterwards, she only has to wear it at night.

31 Days in the Moment - Merry-Go-Round



21 October 2014

We didn't really do very much today. Mags didn't go to school because she spent most of the night throwing up. We all took this opportunity to sleep in and try to catch up on the sleep that all of the coughing and hurling has kept us from getting.

By evening, Maggie was looking for a way to make herself hurl, figuring that if she could just get it all out, she would be fine. She wanted to go to the park and see if the merry-go-round would do the trick. It didn't. Neither did the age-old trick of sticking finger down the throat.

I took the opportunity at the park to photograph the merry-go-round. I wanted to take a picture that shows it in motion, but I can't seem to get the shutter speed, ISO, and aperture to work together so that I can get the shot. Plus, I can't get a really good spin going on the merry-go-round because I am too short to reach the bars to spin it and not have the base brushing up against my pants. In the past, I didn't have a problem with this merry-go-round, so either it grew or I shrunk!

31 Days in the Moment - Sunrise and Sparkles



20 October 2014

I was greeted this morning with an amazing sunrise! I wish that I could have pulled over to take a picture of it, but there were no clear shots of it. There were either trees or power lines in the way. It definitely would have been a wonderful big sky shot!

There were strips of clouds in the area where the sun was and the way it was reflecting on them, they were really sparkling. One of the first things that I thought after "wow!" was that I knew just what some "expert" photographers would say about it if I posted a picture of it. They would have said that I over sharpened it, even though I wouldn't have touched this photo up for anything. Well, not this time. Heavenly Father apparently likes the glitter gun some mornings, too.

I wish that power lines weren't always in the way of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets here!
