Mother Nature

Remember this ad?

You can't fool Mother Nature.

Isn't it awful to think how we used to eat margarine thinking it was healthier than butter?
Oh man, I remember using it in Weight Watchers in the early 80's and feeling holier than thou!

Maya Angelou says 'When we know better, we do better'.
Real women eat butter.

I've decided to stop fighting Mother Nature, and to go with the flow so to speak.
Yesterday, I had my routine pap - and the Dr. noticed how I was 'full of cysts' said she could feel how full I was just by the internal exam.  And that's all I have to say about that today.
Well, ok - one more thing.  What do you think a man would do if his testicles ached they way our ovaries do?

I wanted to share a book with you that I've been reading - it's called
"Telling the Bees" by Peggy Hesketh.
I'm enraptured with this book - and I have yet to get to the end.  I almost can't wait.

I have a stacks of books to read - it's one of my favorite things to do - and yet - it's so hard for me to make the time to do it.

Last night, after it cooled enough to be tolerable out - I went out to the garden to read.
Within minutes, my two new little red hens jumped up on my lap - and into my hair....they sat with me the entire time I read.

I felt like the richest gal in the neighborhood.


It's the simple things y'all.

Till soon.


  1. love the expression on that last pic, priceless.

  2. Aaawwww... That makes me want a chicken! They know who "rescued' them.

    Pam (Colorado)

  3. Now that is priceless, you are mama hen.

    Your hair looks great! I see you are back to being blond.

    I am a real woman, I eat butter.

    I wonder if a man could handle what we have to go through, a mammogram…let’s see him have one on his testicles.

  4. I must tell you that I love your hair. I ordered the book from the library and am anxious for it to come in...your reviews have confirmed my choice. :-)
    Cysts...so sorry...and men couldn't handle it.
    Happy Tuesday!

  5. How darling. New chicks. Nothing better.

  6. You look so peaceful in these, I could just cry. Just what you needed, a good read and some chicken love. No way a man could go thru most of the crap women . Their junk hanging out weakens them, I do believe! Love you, Lady.

  7. What does your doctor recommend? Wishing you peace in this crazy world!

  8. That is so sweet. Life really is about the simpler things.

  9. It's one of those perfect moments that you just want to capture and hold. Sooooo sweet. *squeeeeee*

  17. OMG, i remember how much i hated that commercial.....it was on constantly!!!! we sure were duped back in those days, eh?!! Hang in there, remember women are the stronger sex :)(for good reasons!)

  18. Ok, Erma..I mean Jayme, how cute are you. Love the last picture. How adorable are you with those chicks. They are just reciprocating the love they already know they have from you. Having chick envy girl, ain't gonna lie. You do look so happy and content. Everything is good in the world of Jasyme, but, oh fun, ugh! The gyny visit. Be thankful its just the Glenco at home and not another female in the house. I swear my lovely ovaries are still not going down without a fight, that being when my daughter's monthly comes me ol ovaries still try to fire! Ugh! Really?! That is when it is off to the medicine cabinet for a dose of advil. Oh Mother Nature, thanks!!

  21. Well I have never seen young chicks hanging out in someone's golden locks whilst they read in the evening shade. Tis a beautiful thing... rich indeed.

  22. Well how durn cute is that?!!!

    Enjoy your evenings reading in the garden!

  23. Ok, so Iam thinking its high time we start menopause not annonomous, MNA for short. You know a national association, like weight watchers, AA, ect. To name a few. Monthly meetings, support groups, products proven to work ect... Who's with me?
    Love ya!

  24. I'm popping in, catching up, reading until I get to something that's familiar. Sending good wishes for you, hoping for good news and some peace. Sounds like you can use a little bit of each.

    Sitting and reading with chicks in your hair sounds heavenly. The pictures made me smile.
