I am a 64 year old living in upstate New York, still working full time, and helping my spouse and other family members with the care of my elderly mother in law and autistic brother in law. Right now my role is advocacy more than anything else for me, but that role could change at any time.
With this blog, I try to create an oasis of calm, showing you the beauty that is my world here in the Binghamton, New York area. I have been blogging since April of 2009, inspired to finally jump in to blogging by a tragic mass shooting near where I work. You can check out my very first blog post if you want to read more (note, I would edit it a lot more if I was writing it today).
I've been blogging daily since late April of 2011. I started doing that with a blog challenge, and just kept on going. I don't know when that streak will stop, but this will be my 2,787th post.
My current lineup of posts depends on the day of the week, so you can join in daily, or just for the items that interest you.
Mondays are Music Mondays - lately, I join in a meme called Music Moves Me, and I will be joining them tomorrow. Tuesdays are whatever I want to blog about.
Wednesday is Summer Memories - memories of all kinds. My Wednesday feature changes with the seasons.
Thursday is Thursday Tree Love, another meme.
Friday I participate in Skywatch Friday, where bloggers from all over the world join to show the sky in their part of the world.
Saturdays are Local Saturdays. Sundays - whatever I want to blog about. And, the 15th of the month is still another meme, Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.

Here's a little taste of what to expect if you visit my blog.
Our times are so uncertain - I rarely post about politics, and hope that you will feel welcome here.
So, I would love to know who you are.
Did you come from the Ultimate Blog Challenge? Or, are you a long time reader?
Once again, welcome!
