Back from "The Ohio"...
This is my second entry on this...aaarrrgghhhh...I wrote a magnificent, award winning entry here just moments ago and now it's just disappeared into blogspace...gone forever...well, maybe it wasn't award winning but dang!!!
I'm back...was gone 3 weeks...my mom does NOT own a computer so I was internet-starved virtually the entire time...I don't recommend it to anyone...
Ohio was stunningly beautiful this spring...as it always is...and the people shine with lovely countenances...they reflect the beauty around them, they can't help it...they are surrounded by fragrances and incredible colors of blossoming trees and flowers so they cannot escape being beautiful themselves...beauty by association...
All is well. My Mom is beautiful and Pops is well. I asked him, of all of the houses he has lived in throughout his 95 years, which was his favorite...his reply?..."The one I'm always living in at the moment"...that is wise at so many levels.
Eric is engaged to be married to a beautiful girl from Jackson, Ohio...we think they may be related (distant distant cousins, but fodder for jokes for generations to come)...the family is crazy in love with Holly...and yes, Eric is marrying a girl with two L's in her name so I sound like Elmer Fudd when I say her name...she is WONDERFUL...and here's a plus...one day she'll be a "trust fund baby" because she's tied into the chicklets candy people...WEIRD...leave it to Eric...
Eli continues to amaze and delight us with his business acumen...he started me on an incredible acai (pronounced ah-sigh-ee)juice loaded with antioxidants...the ORAC is a rating for antioxidants much like the RDA for vitamins...this particular product has a daily ORAC of like, 5,000!!!! I scraped my hand pretty badly when I first arrived in Ohio and I'll admit I'm not a quick healer and I scar easily, but it's totally gone and there IS NO SCAR...NONE...it's amazing.
And Jette...my Jetson...I have a great deal of fun with Jette when we are discovering something for the first time together, such as a show or a book or a current event...I love how her mind works...one of the best things about being a mother of mature children is to watch how they relate to one another and each of Jette's siblings have mentioned how much Jette moves, talks and acts like me...I can't see it too much, probably because she is so much more beautiful than I ever was or could hope to be..and that is the TRUTH...but it's fun the older we get...also, I stand all amazed at her capacity to love without condition...Jette is a rockstar at loving unconditionally...rock on Jetson.
My sister and brother and niece are the amazing people they always are... David's job is to advocate for the mentally and physically challenged in securing employment for them, which he seems quite suited for...no joke intended but if one fits here, cool.
My sister, as always, is creating incredible pieces of pottery which needs TO BE ON THE INTERNET...and my niece is wonderful in her caring for the legal intricacies necessary for mother's estate, God Bless Tiffany.
And don't get me started on the grandkids, which were incredible. Alex, you and I are the Pearl Namers and always will be and Emma Jane...wait till the summer my love.
And now, I'm off to walk my dogs who are very very happy to see me... as was my exploding sweet potato plant which is devouring my kitchen...not to mention my hubby and step son
