Dreary Thursday…

all day long.  We did have a forecast for rain last night but so far nothing.  It is a typical fall type day in the heart of Illinois.  I wouldn’t mind some sunshine but I will take the day anyway I can get it.   I am thankful for each new day and I always hope that I can make the best of it.  Not always easy to do sometimes, but still, that is my goal when I get up each morning.
I do feel a bit sad today.  This would have been my oldest sister’s Corrie’s birthday.  Even though she has been gone for a long time I still miss her and have good memories of her.  She married when I was a small child and I do remember feeling bereft when she left.  Actually she and my next older sister married the same year at a very young age.  I can remember having dreams about them and hoping they would come back home.

This is the only picture that I could find of Corrie.  That is her oldest son Mike.  I am not sure when this picture was taken. I am sure I have some more pictures somewhere.
I have been to Walmart this morning and purchased a new camera.  I have the battery charging right now and I will take some pictures to try it out later today. 
I am waiting impatiently for my sis (Rae) to come,  She is flying in on Saturday and will stay until my birthday on the 25th.  What a wonderful birthday present.  Actually the 25th is my Twin’s birthday too.
I hope you are all having a great day.


  1. Oh yes the weather has been very fall-like here too. The trees are gradually turning here now.
    I love old pictures.Oh boy a new camera how neat.. hope you have a lot of fun with it.
    : ) Take care Sis!

  2. Dreary here too but the rain has stopped. What fun to have your sister there for your birthday. I know you two will have a blast. You have good memories of your sisters and that helps ease the sadness a bit.
    What kind of camera did you get? I love my little one.

  3. what did you get!? What did you get!? Busting to know!!!

  4. Today we're already at 76 but it's clouding up now with a change bringing it down to the fifties for tomorrow...that's September in Montana. I sure like your picture there...I can understand the meloncholly...sometimes pictures are bitter sweet. Can't wait to see the camera's "fruit"!

  5. Yeah, I want to know what kind you got too? Don't ya love getting new electronic gadgets? Hey, did you ever get a new scanner? The old picture of your sister looks quite a bit like an old picture I have of my mom. Must be the hair style and the shoes and slacks. Enjoy the day!

  6. New camera! Good for you. Just in time for fall! Have fun with your sister.

  7. Oh another new toy to learn all about. Is that your early birthday present. Have fun with your sister.
