1 of 3

1 of 3 obviously means this is a triptych...there are three posts all together, so after reading this one, page down to the next two! Yes, it was a productive day.

My considerate friend, Cecile, tagged me. I'm supposed to give 5-8 interesting facts about me. Okay...let the snoring begin. I will lessen your pain by giving only 5, unless of course I'm on a roll by 5 and need to go to 8.

1. I have 5 sisters and 3 brothers (I'm the second oldest). Obviously we have parents!

2. I can sew too!

3. I love pens, pencils and chairs. I didn't know why until I got to architecture school. Apparently all architects love pens, pencils and chairs. I found a home. I don't like the very expensive $300 - $1,000 pens because they're too fat...I like the really practical cheap stuff. Micron, my favorite, has archival ink and comes in various points from, I think 005 - 04 or 05. It's a gem of a pen. You can find it in art stores as well as craft stores. It's around $3-$4 and worth ever penny. Just a tip: store your pens point down. Oh and pens should never leak or leave a gob of ink behind. My advice...don't settle if that's what yours is doing. There's a good pen out there just waiting for you. Now that I'm not an architect, I have no idea what to do with this obsession.

Pencils, oh Lord, don't get me going. As an architecture and art major we used them all. I love each and every one for what they can do so brilliantly. Go to any art store and look at the beautiful selection. They usually have paper up to test graphite, so do. See what you get from 2H to 6B. Trust me, the world does not revolve around a 2H! Additionally, no one who works in an art store will ever stop you from exploring.

Chairs. Don't get me started. Seriously. I have too many chairs in the house. Too many in the garage waiting to get into the house and chairs in my mind just waiting to get into either! Why? Who knows. I just know I love them.

4. I need quiet. Noise makes me wacky, tense and frustrated. I grew up with the loudest family on planet earth and enjoyed it, but to be creative and whole, I need quiet.

5. I love hot peppers. Not just any old hot peppers, but pepperocinis. I can't eat them mind you because they cause havoc with my digestive system, but once in a while I go wild and eat one or two! God that hurts, but God they're good. I wish I had an iron stomach.

6. My cats and dogs watch me. I catch them all the time and say "Honey, knock it off, you're going to give Mommy a complex.

7. I love Yes, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, etc.!

8. Finally...I gently collect spiders and bugs I find in the house and take them outside.

XO Suzanne!

p.s. I tag Ludmilla, Robyn and Peter. If you know them, you're thinking like I am...get ready for the ride!!! This should be loads of fun. :)

ah, i also love pens and pencils...less so the chairs.
should i have been an architect?
nice to see you writing

Suzanne said...

Hey you!

How can you have pens and pencils without the chairs? Yes, you probably should have been an arcitect! There's still time honey!

I fell asleep on the sofa this afternoon only to have all these wierd dreams with tennis players. I woke up to the Australian Open! Rob had it on, of course. Ahhhhhhhh, how beautiful your summer. However, I hear from 54 it's rather HOT! Good luck with that. Are you a tennis fan? If so, who would you like to win other that an Australian? Be fair and generous.

XO Suze

kylie said...

i like some chairs, does that count?
it has been horribly hot and terribly humid but as always in sydney, just when you can bear it no longer the southerly comes through. She didnt disappoint us and came through last night, so today has been a pleasant relief. 22 degrees C (sorry, we dont do F here and i have no idea of the conversion)
54 is in melbourne and they can have very different weather down there, i think they suffered more this time round.
i have no idea about tennis. don't know, don't care.
sport just doesn't press any buttons for me.

funny thing with the architecture is that i once did one of those internet questionaires to find out what i would be best suited to....architecture! then interior design.
i liked you telling that story against yourself ...it was brave and FUNNY

bindhiya said...

Good Morning Suzanne,

Wish you wonderful day ahead...
Somehow i will be up in the morning to say good morning to you..i think it is becoming a habit. i like it :)...
I love pens too...I have a large collection...I'll give to my sister...she is an artist..
In my religion there is Men and women God so it can be He or She...everyone use He so i say He too... but am not so religious...respect all religions and trying to learn more about different religions...
I love talking to you..
Take care dear
Talk to you later

NAME: CIELO said...

Oh girl... you made me laugh so much.... "you gently collect spiders and bugs".... buahhh! What do you do with them???? one or two of your chairs will do fine in my house :)

Good to see you girly....

cielo

Suzanne said...

Some chairs do count. You get Brownie points for that. Take good care of my children!

22 degrees C. I did a Google search. Your in the 70's. Poor ole' '54 Bomber is sufferin'. Yikes. That can't be fun.

Tennis. As well rounded as you are you can't fit a bit of sports in? What's with that? Come on honey, give it the old college try.

The test was correct. You do seem like an architect or designer to me. You have a keen eye and a love of pens and pencils. That's the first clue.

Later,
XO Suzanne ;)

Suzanne said...

Hidden Tears,

It did seem like a LONG vacation. We've missed you. Glad you're back!

I'm so happy to hear your done with your exams and get a bit of a rest from all that stress. However, as we all know, it just begins again! Hang in there honey.

Your posts have been so brilliant. Thank you for writing. It's always nice to wander over to your blog and read. Keep writing and taking photos. I know I'm not the only one who enjoys you.

Hope to hear from you soon. Love you sweetie and so glad you're back.

XO Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Oh Bindi, where did I find you? When ever I read your comment my heart sort of swells. You are so honest and kind. I haven't mentioned 1pic in a long time, but I wonder how he could have left so many beautiful people behind. If I did there would be such a deep void in my life, so I never will. I adore all of you beyond measure and can't imagine life without you. Honestly, I can't. I don't remember what it was like without all of you. And that is his gift to us I think.

Reading your good morning comment matters. I look forward to it daily. Thank you for making an effort. You and I will always be friends. I know that with all my heart.

I adore you my dear. Truly, I do.

Much love,
Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Hi Cielo!!!

I'm so happy you enjoyed the ride. Yes, life is rather interesting here! Never a dull day. In fact as I'm trying to type this Ohno is trying to nurse my nose. One day he's going to grow out of this. I JUST KNOW IT!!! He's going to have to have his pom-poms taken care of in the next month (I keep telling him I'm sorry), so perhaps that will do the trick. He's a character with a capital C.

I'm so glad you came and laughed my girlie friend! Life is more fun than it is not. I enjoy the laughter more than the pain and know you do too. Your blog is pure joy and I love visiting. Thank you my dear friend for creating a haven for all of us.

The spiders and bugs, I simply transport outside. That simple. I feel better and they're still alive. That matters to me and them.

Love you sweetie~pie. Stay in touch.

XO Suzanne

Rhondi said...

Hi Suzanne I think that we live a little far away for me to get a cat from you. Thanks for the thought though. Actually we aren't going to get any cats for a while. Our DIL is allergic to cats so sje uses it as an wxcuse for not coming to visit us. Now that we have no cats, she'll have no excuse and so we are hoping that they'll come for a visit with th3e grandkids! Rhondi

The Queen said...

Oh! Suzanne'
I was an art major, hanging out with the architect students because of their really cool pencils!lol
I too have a fasination with pencils and pens but also with vases...which I love yours!
bindhiya tagged me...do I tag someone...new to me! Fun
Love to you,
Shara

Suzanne said...

Rhondi,

You would be perfect. Unfortunately you're 3000 miles away. Oh well. Now your DIL has no excuse. I expect the grandkids will come for a visit in no time. If not, I expect you to protest! No really. Get out there with your sign and picket!

Love you dear and thanks for the comment. Nice to hear from you!

Much love,
Suzanne

Suzanne said...

The Queen,

Hi sweetie, believe it or not we had an architecture department in our high school! How cool is that! I was completely absorbed in it. One of the greatest experiences of my life.

Being tagged. What fun. Embrace and enjoy it. You get tagged and then you have to tag! It's going all around us and it's too much fun! We get to learn lots about one another.

Love you sweetie and I'm SO grateful you're in my life. Honestly.

XO Suzanne

Salem Stitcher said...

Hi Suzanne,

I live in a small 1940's era house so the rooms are small. The room I'm in right now is about 12' x 12'. There are 4 chairs (and an ottoman) so I guess I share your love of chairs. Of course, as a quilter my real obsession is fabric. I have more fabric than furniture (must to my husband's chagrin).

You said you wonder how I found you...like so many others it seems, I found you through 1pic. (Bless his heart...)

'54Bomber said...

G'day Suzanne,

I'm with you about the peepers.
Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin. Nope.
But the pens?? My daughter Helen and you must be kindred spirits. Helen absolutely lurves pens. We are never short of a pen in this household.
Mark.

'54Bomber said...

I mean peppers. P-E-P-P-E-R-S
OhmyGawd!

kylie said...

hi again,
how do you know i have a keen eye?

my relationship with sport is complicated but here goes....
i have a mild disability which means i can't do lots of sports. i dont know whether i have ignored sport because i dont want to be reminded of what i cant do or whether i would have disliked sport anyway. the whole thing is so interconnected.
i can very rarely get interested in sport but mostly dont bother.
im sure there is a lenthy post in this some where...hmmm, another one to add to the list
k

bindhiya said...

Good Morning Suzanne,

I am gonna have a busy day today...but i want to talk to you before I leave..

Dear one, If we are meant to meet here, someway we will...if it is not 1 pic..through another 1 pic. So don't give all the credits away...
You are so sweet....love you.
have a wonderful day
love
bindi

Lapa said...

Great blog, amazing, sensitive, a real peace af art, as your roses.

CSI Seattle said...

We have a connection! I also appreciate goods pens, quiet times, peppers, and am kind to the spiders and bugs living around me. My wife can't believe when I pick up bugs with my bare hand to carry them outside.

You had a nice runs of post with the triple entry. Now that is really what blogging is about.

We are off to a great week!

Brian

Robyn said...

Woohooo! Suzanne a run of 3! Congrats! And by the way...if I forget to tell you! Love the photos! And thanks for the tag! I will work on that when I get back from the flick!

Ok...so there seems to be a common between you and CSI! The only 3 people who have a true admiration of good pens and pencils and great chairs...the bug thing...well that's where you too lose me...EEEAKKKKKK! I have a major collection of pens...all types of pens and different colors and certain ones to only do certain things. Pencils same thing but I have severeal (hundred...naa just kidding)that are beautiful mech. pencils (which I prefer).

And the chair thing..well that all comes back from when I was over in Iraq and had to ride in a Hummer which didn't have sear cushions...nope just nylon straps (the kind one had in old yard furniture). So my soar arse never really recovered...lol! And from that day forward I was on a mission for comfort for my sweet tush! I too, seem to have chairs galore here!

Thanks for missing me! It was nice to see you and some of the others visit my post. I was feeling a bit down that last couple days. I have just got off working 3 12 hour shifts at the hospital and they really took a toll on me! I will explain later. I miss you too sweety and thank you no BLESS you for the photos and your kind words! Send cheer my way when you can. I am feeling a bit dark/gloomy today! And missing my 'hunky honey' as well.

I will be back to visit you dear heart! SOON!
Hugs,

Ludmila M. said...

My dear Suzanne,
Missed you a lot when i was traveling,i've told ya this already,haven't i??Maybe i'll go to Florida on July,it would be great to see you there..Thank you for telling me that i look rested, i tried to, sometimes i thought some bullshit( that subject you know more than anyone..)Nice to see that you've tagged me, very kind of yours..
XOXO Ludmila.

Suzanne said...

Kylie,

I decided to do a bit of investigating after your commment, and so like you, took an on-line test. I took the IQ test. I answered all the questions to the best of my ability (honestly), pushed the button, waited and the results came back. Apparently my IQ is 79!

I actually know what my IQ is, and THAT AIN'T IT HONEY!!! So much for on-line tests (don't promote that crap!). If I can't test above 79, you apparently aren't an architect or designer! Or is it the other way around? The IQ test we're given and told is "real" isn't, but the on-line test is? Wow...I'm in deep doo-doo if that's the case. So are you.

And no, I can't stop laughing. Where'd I go wrong? Was there a trick question?

XO Suze

Suzanne said...

Salem Stitcher,

Oh no...don't even get me going on fabric. I don't have a lot of clothes because I just don't care about them, so my entire closet is filled with fabric! As are boxes, other closets, etc. I thought it was just me, but when I went home to NY and visited my sister Laura I saw a huge stack of gorgeous antique brocades and velvets sitting on a table. I said "Laur, you like fabric?" She said "Oh God Honey, I think I'm obsessed with it. I've been collecting it for years and have closets full! This stack just didn't fit!" I thought I'd die. I had no idea. We discussed our love of fabric and laughed forever. She differs from me in that she collects very old world European vintage fabric. Who knew!? And yes we dress almost the same: flip flops or clogs, blue jeans and tee shirt. We have a simple black dress and high heels for special occassions and that's it. Lots of closet and draw space for the stuff that really matters!!!! Life is sometimes too perfect.

Glad you found me through 1pic. It's a Martha Stewart "Good Thing." I hope I don't offend you, but frankly, I don't know whether to bless his heart for bringing us all together or kick is a** for leaving us in such a distastful manner. Upon further review...bless his heart.

Always a pleasure talking to you. Stay in touch and I will too. Keep buying fabric because if you don't, who will?!

Much love,
Suzanne

Suzanne said...

'54 Bomber

Yup, everyone has a Freudian slip now and then! Good luck with that honey!

Tell Helen, it isn't just the pen, it's the cheap pen that balances perfectly in the fingers, doesn't clog, glob or cause any sort of difficulty or strain! No joke. That's a good pen! Oh sure, the expensive pens can do that with little effort, but it's the cheap pen that has to work for the honor of perfect pen. I'm sure she'll agree, they're out there!

Love you my dear and thanks for all your comments. You're a delight.

XO Suzanne

Cecile said...

I am so particular about my pens and pencils. The pencils have to be long and very sharp or I cannot write with it. I do not like short dull pencils. It has to have a full eraser, and no bite marks or dents. I like clickie pens. I do not like pens that you have to take a cap on and off again. And they have to write smoothly. I re-apolstered an antique chair once, and the seats of my kitchen chair, but other than that, I can't say I have much of an obsession. I love the story about the bank teller. That one had me in stitches. And I enjoyed reading your personal bio. What a fun post. I have been super busy and have not had time to get one out in the past few days.

Arthur Dent said...

Suzanne:
I think I must have followed you back from a comment you left on someone else's blog...I do that once in a while. If i see a particularly intelligent comment made on a blog in my many travels, I'll have a look at who left it.

That or through Google Analytics or Sitemeter.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by, once again, nice pics!

bindhiya said...

Hi Suzanne,
Thank you for the wishes!!!
My parents call me to wish, my brothers and sister did too....
that's all..here i have the same exhausting day...with even more loads of laundry 4 full loads...and a sink full of dishes. At one point I just got the stroller and go walk around cause am getting crazy....why i don't have a break?
I will be ok. I miss my grandma so bad..(she was my neighbor, bounded to a chair cause of arthritis, I used to give breakfast every morning). Everyday her smile made me happy..
am not sure where am going now so better stop...
love
bindi

Arthur Dent said...

Yep, you followed my blog-pal Pat (100 Thoughts of Love - http://pats-dryrun.blogspot.com) over from 1pic, and since Pat is one of the bloggers on my blog-stalking list, I check in with her quite frequently. Since she also doesn't have a really large readership, there aren't that many people who comment at her place yet. I'm always looking for new blogs to wander through.

Anyway, that's how I got here. I loved taking a walk in your digital garden and really enjoyed playing with your digital kittens.

Carry on!

Robyn said...

Suzanne! I have posted my tag from you...thank you so much for that, it was fun! It made me smile which was needed. Thanks again. hope you can come out and play soon. Miss you terribly!

Hi Suzanne Yes you were the Suzanne I mentioned in my email I just found you recently and just haven't got around to updating my blog list lately but I plan to put you on there! Glad you like the proverb. I have found that truth is just truth, doesn't matter what your beleif system is. I guess you will still be sleeping as I write this! Rhondi

inherwritemind1 said...

Hi Suzanne,

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I must tell you that the "controversy" between dog owners vs cat owners is a big ongoing good-natured joke between some of my commenters. If the comments were meant to be really nasty, I would delete them. BTW, I'm a dog owner -- two German shepherds; one's a therapy dog -- but I've had cats too. Love 'em all.

I, too, love art, hot peppers and animals.

Your flowers are gorgeous!

Suzanne said...

Arthur,

Thank God I made an intelligent comment. If you read one of my earlier comments, you're aware I took an on-line IQ test and came in at a whopping 79! At least I can tie my shoes. I think. Did they grade on a curve?

Thanks too for enjoying my gardens, animals and photos. They aren't digital, they're real damnit. Trust me, I KNOW! I foot the bill.

Stop by any time. It's nice to have you here.

XO Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Hi Bindi,

Honey, just do what you can do and you'll be okay. Is there a community center near by? If so, do they have child care? That might be the answer. Just a few hours a day to regroup and exhale. Also, talk to Kylie. She's a mom and has been through what you're struggling with, so she may be of assistance. Also, Cecile. I would think they'd be excellent resources.

Your grandmother sounds like a beautiful soul, mine was too. I miss her ever single day of my life. She died in 1991 and I still can't believe she left us. None of us can. She was an amazing woman and I love her so very, very much. I understand your love for your grandmother. Honestly, I do.

Hang in there sweetie. You have all of us to talk to and I know we'll do what ever we can to support you.

Much love,
Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Hi Rhondi!

Thanks. I'll get right on that. Nice to know you picked me. What fun. I'm afraid once everyone knows the real me they'll run for their lives!!!

Talk to you soon. And yes, truth is truth. I liked that sentence a lot!

XO Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Cielo,

You made me laugh. Pretty!? That's debatable...depends on which side of the rock I fall off of in the morning. Good day? Yup, I'm having one. However it started slow. Bug lover? Always!

Thanks for stopping by and making my day complete. Seeing your smiling face is a gift.

Love you dear,
Suzanne :)

Suzanne said...

Krystyna!

Hi, it's so nice to have you here. You make me feel really happy! Why is that? Stick around, if for nothing else but the sunshine! I love your blog and thanks for taking the time to visit mine. I'm going to link to you if that's okay. Talk to you soon.

XO Suzanne :)

Suzanne said...

Inherwritemind1,

Honey, I need an easier name than that! Please, help me out with that one!

I'm so glad to have you here. First, let me state, you're gorgeous! I love your grey hair! I have tons of it. It doesn't show up in my photos because they're too tiny. I've been considering and alternative, but after seeing your beauiful photo decided, why? Why would I bother?! Why would I want to? You made me realize there isn't a reason to go back, just forward. I like that. Thank you. I don't watch Oprah, but it feel like an Oprah moment. Ya know what I mean?!

Now about animals. I knew the comments were too silly to be serious. Thank God! I'm glad to hear you have two German Shepards, but sad to hear you have no kitties! There are so many who need homes and yours seems so perfect. Are you at least considering? Come on honey, step up to the plate.

I love that one of your dogs is a therapy dog. I've often though of our darling T-Bone in that regard, but with all I have going on in my life, know I wouldn't have the time. He'd be amazing though. He's the greatest kitty and people lover in the world. And I know it would just fill his soul, but there are only 24 hours in a day and I can't fit everything in. And that is a true commitment.

Hot peppers...how is it possible to forsake them!? I adore them. Even covet them and yet my digestive system revolts. Why me?! I can honestly say I've eaten half a jar at times! Oh...you bet I paid. But the joy was worth it. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.

Thanks for your beautiful comment about art and my flowers. I agree. I love them equally. Sweetie, please stop by any time and I'll do the same. We found one another for a reason and it's wonderful.

Much love, Suzanne

P.S. How can I get that dog in the snow video on my blog!? It's too funny.

Thank you so much for your kind words..
Am not sure is there mothers group or anything like that in here..I'll check it out.
Grandma have three daughters but they all live far away from her. She was a real nice women.
The day She was taken to the hospital, i saw her, when she saw me she started crying. That is the last time I saw her...those moments never go from my heart..
Hope you had a wonderful day. Mine wasn't as bad as yesterday... Today i walk to the store and done so much cleaning...
take care dear one.
love you

I didn't think the original photos were digital, but since it's hard (and expensive) to distribute paper copies at this kind of volume (ie: to anyone with an internet connection)... displaying them here is a digital format makes the most sense. :D

Oh Suzy my gosh, you made me laugh so much with that comment on my blog about that Palcopiano guy.... Heheheh! I don’t know who the heck he is, or how he found me... I can’t figure out either what he writes about, I just guess, and then flirt a little!..... and then I saw you there..., speaking sweet nothings with him, flirting, batting eyelashes.... oh my gosh, girl, you're too sweet, and funny. I love you, girl!


Have a happy day!

inherwritemind1 said...

Honey, I need an easier name than that! Please, help me out with that one!

Easy. It's Tena, pronounced the way people say Tina.

Thanks for the compliment on my gray hair. It's really a lot lighter than in the photo. I used to have it streaked, so that it looked blonde, but what a pain. Now its natural color is sort of mixed-bag taupe/pewter/blonde who knows? Or, you can call it gray.

How can I get that dog in the snow video on my blog!? It's too funny.

It sure is. Every time I watch it I guffaw. It just kills me. It was on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sUL0KCIc48

Hi suzanne. It's pretty busy here in your blog. Almost difficult to to find a place on this virtual sheet of paper where to leave a comment.
Well, I switched my blog private. robyn knows my e-mail. If you know her's she'll give you mine, and I'll put you an my invited-list. If not, we'll find another way.
Did you know that I'm cronically declined to say Rosie to you?
Have a nice weekend!

Prema,

Life is so full here. I'm trying to get my next post up, but haven't had time. I have to honor a few tags and I'm laughing because I honestly don't know what to write for one of them! Apparently I'm not that interesting!

Good luck with the roses and hope you garden organicially. Roses do brilliantly with good soil, lots of compost and plenty of love.

Talk to you soon.

They are actually digital. I was just kidding with you. Nice to have you around. I'll visit your blog as soon as I come up for air!

Suzanne said...

Sweet Cielo,

You kill me! I have never been called a flirt and have never considered myself one, but that's an interesting concept. You're so romantic and lovely and perhaps see something no one else does! I like that you think I am one. It adds a bit of glamour and complexity to my life I didn't have yesterday!!! Stick around honey, you make life worthwhile.

I love you too. By the way, your posts have been beautiful. I love coming to your blog.

XO Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Tena,

I know, I visited your blog numerous times after that initial comment and saw your name up there in big old neon lights and felt very silly. Thanks for reminding me!

Your hair is a gorgeous shade of grey. I love it. When I went home to take care of my sister's family and animals while she accompanied her class to Cape Cod for a week, everyone was saying "The color of your hair is so beautiful." And then almost in the same breath said "When are you going to dye it?" What's with that? While I was home I rescued a dog that was lost and took him to the Vet's because he was bleeding The police contacted me while there (yes the dog was happily reunited with his family), only to learn I was identified by the store clerk who saw me rescue the dog as "A grey haired lady!" Swear to God! I thought, hummmmmmm, is it so grey it's my most dominate feature? Apparently. It still makes me laugh.

Thanks for the link to our favorite dog. I'm going to attempt to post it soon. I don't know how, but it will probably only take about 3 months to figure it out. No really, I'm not kidding. Do you know what I love most about that dog? The pure joy it takes in the every day.

Oh, if you have time, click on my link to Hobies World. It's a terrific dog blog. I know you'll enjoy it. He's an amazing dog.

Gotta run. It's been so fun meeting you and all the interesting people on your blog and the posts. Great find. Have a wonderful day.

XO Suzanne

Jennifer,

Hi sweetie. You're more than welcome. It's always an honor to come to your blog, and thank you for doing what you're doing. It really does matter. We've know one another for quite some time now and you know how much I adore you, so as usual, this message is being sent with tons of love and thanks.

XO Suzanne :)

P.S. Just picked up the new issue of Romantic Country and there's our favorite editor, Fifi, looking adorable as always! I was thinking about the life of an editor and realized how difficult it must be with all the travel and responsibility, but somehow, she doesn't look worse for wear. She's adorable.

Also, I saw the current issue of Victoria on the newstand today and woundered "Why is it there, but not here!?" Mine hasn't arrived. Has yours? I'll try to give you a call in the next few days just to say hello. Until then, my love to you and the family

Dear Suzy,
Like Der k said, difficult to find one single place to leave a comment to you,wow, so many here!Again and again, one thousand times i have to say "Thank you",your comments are always a aupport for me..I can assure you i see my mother's point of view too,it's difficult,bit i can see it..I can even see it has passed one year after my law graduation,yeah,a long time passed..I agree with you when you said your relationship with your mother got better when you got your independency,i'm working on it..
It's so nice to see that, after all that time, we still exchange those beautiful words of support,caring and hope..
I know it's kinda hard to have this struggle with my true situation and my dreams,but i'm tryin',little by little,day after day to find the answer by hearing that little voice inside of my heart,for sure,i'll listen it,as soon as i can..
Take care,and all the best,always!
Love,
Lud.

Suzanne said...

Der k,

Well, well, well. Finally. I logged on today and felt highly insulted. You could have said something before you did that! I beat a track to Robyn's door to ask what the h*** was going on and to inform her we'd scared off another one. I've since erased it. No point having it there now that you're back. And honestly, I'm so glad you're here. It didn't make sense that you'd do that without some sort of explanation. You didn't seem like that sort of guy. Thank you for being considerate (eventually!). The next time you want to yank the chain, give me some warning. Okay? I'm sensitive.

I had Robyn's email until you so conveniently took it away! I'll get it again and you and I will resume communication. If I don't get it, I'll just open a hotmail account because I'm so afraid to give my real email on my blog. Why? I don't know!? In any event, we'll talk soon. Until then, my best to you and Lisa.

XO Suzanne

Suzanne Suzanne Suzanne...

so I checked back to your blog this morning to see what you have been up to this week, but it appears you have been too busy responding to all your blog-fans to even make a post! Congratulations? HAHA!

Still, it is good to see you maintaining such a wide-circle of friends...especially since my curiosities have been satisfied by their blogs :)

You're a gem...have a fantastic Saturday!!

~KJ

bindhiya said...

Dear Suzanne,
I am stopping to say Good morning to my dear Friend. My in law's here..so am off to cook...
love you dear one

Julie said...

I totally can relate to needing quite. We are quite people here at my house and we all need our space . It's funny how we come together in the evening and eat , do homework and then everyone heades off to there space.
Sorry to hear about your tree! Yikes I can almost feel the big THUMP it made when it fell. Scary!!

Suzanne said...

KJ

Reading your comment made me smile. Big and wide! Our tree is going today, so I'm searching for any diversion. I told Rob "I refuse to leave my office." And I have kept my word, except once. I had to look and it nearly killed me. What once was, is no more.

Ya know what honey? I do have an amazing collection of men and women on this blog. I feel SO lucky. I often wonder, why? Why would they come here? I'm still not sure I know the answer, I'm simply grateful they have graced my life. I feel very lucky and humbled. Honestly. You're here. Who knew?! We are so different, yet here we are, together! Hell, we should have our own show on a major network!!! :) I can't believe the direction my life has taken in the past two months. I'm rethinking so much and that's a Martha Stewart "Good Thing!" I'm looking at new ways to express myself artistically and personally. And you have all contributed to that decision in a major way. You have all literally changed my life. Why? Because you matter. What you say, what you do, what you contribute, what you express, matters. Nothing has gone unrecognized. Nothing. Every single soul who has graced this blog...all good and one bad, matters. How could I ever go back after the past few months? That would be impossible. I've grown too much. And hope to continue.

I suspect you will always be a part of my life. Why? I don't know, but you're so forward thinking and inclusive, that I can't imagine life without you, even though you're conservative and obviously a Republican!!! We were destined to meet, and so it goes, as Linda Ellerby so often states. I appreciate the way life has unfolded the past few months. It's been a gift. And so are you.

I love you dear,
Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Hi Bindi,

God I read your blog and couldn't stop crying. I was already crying because our tree is going, but you made my day more complicated!!!

How did I ever find you? How? I'm so grateful. Thank you for sharing such a personal story and for including me. I love you very much.

XO Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Hi Julie,

You know what sweetie, the thump was kinda gentle. I remember saying to the kitties "Will you knock it off!" That's how loud it was...sort of loud, but barely a whisper...I thought it was the kitties until I turned around. Then of course my reaction was "OH...MY...GOD." It's a 55 ft. tree, yet it just gently decided to die and snuggled into the sod. Why it didn't hurt this house or us, I have no idea. I just know we are grateful. Life is certainly complex and the answers never easy. Nor should they be.

On the issue of quiet, I would like to have it 24-7! That would fill my soul I understand your family's need for it because I crave it! Some people can deal with lots of noise, but then there are people like us!

bindhiya said...

Dear Suzanne,
I wish am there with you...I know it is hard day for you....
am praying God to give you strength to go through this difficult time..
love you dear one

Robyn said...

Suzanne! Oh my dear Suzanne! I just got off work...aaaghhh! Another 3 days (12 hour shifts) done! Yipppeee! And get to enjoy the fresh air and take Glacier to the doggy park! Yes...yes..please email..Der k really wants to invite you to his blog. I will give you his and then shoot over an email and viola! you will be invited.

Once you email I will let you know what happened. Not us...*whew* thank god! great guy that Der K.

Ok...catch me up! What's going on. I see some new pics of roses...yummy! I need to post a few photos tomorrow or what am I saying later today since I am up at 305 am! EEkkkkk!

Well lovely lady...I have sorely missed you and your posts. I am very glad to be back to the world of the living.

Sending you lots of hugs and smiles!
Hugs,

Suzanne said...

Bindi! It's 6 am and you've beaten me! How dare you get up that early just to do so!!! :)

Frankly, I've been up all night again with this stupid menopause thing and was just about to write to you, thinking I would win! Oh well. You know what? Hard day, hard night and another hard day apparently. Life goes on, doesn't it? I hope you have a beautiful day.

I should post something new soon if I can get myself together. Hope to hear from you.

Love you dear and really, have a beautiful day,
XO Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Kylie,

I can't go to bed. Here I sit. It's pathetic. My world has become so odd with this menopause stuff. I'm not going to survive this crap! Really. And yes, the wrinkles keep coming. It's amazing what lack of sleep does to a woman. Have any good eye cream recommendations? I'll slather it all over my body and hope for the best!

Love you!
Suze

Suzanne said...

And here you are writing to me. Let me present you with a gold medal. Whoops, don't have one, so let's pretend!

You must be exhausted. I don't know how you do it. I've been up for three straight nights in a row and am about to go insane. This menopause thing is definately not going to work for me. SOME ONE GET ME OUT OF HERE!!! Okay, that feels better. But I'm still here. Hummmmmmmm. Now what?

Ohno's here trying to help me type and offering no assistance. He's trouble with a capital T. I've written this sentence at least 6 times and don't think we're done yet...he write and I edit. Finally, he's gone.

Honey, can you just shoot me your email so Der K and I can hook up again. I don't give out my email yet, but you do, so plant it on my blog if you have time. I'll erase it if you like. I scolded him for doing what he did without informing me. Horrible vision of OnePic all over again, but knew he wasn't the same sort of guy. And of course, he wasn't. And yes! Thank God it wasn't us!!!! I was very concerned about that.

He and Lisa make such a beautiful couple. I loved the photos of them at the cafe. You can see how dearly they love one another. I'm rather sad he's gone private because he's deprived so many people of beautiful photos and words. What compells people to do so, I have no idea. He's a sweetie. though jnhmmmmml. (Newman just wrote that as he walked across the key board. I said "J***** C**** dude," but laughed when I saw it, so left it.

I love you sweetie. Glad you're stil alive and able to go to the park with your pooch. I'm about to post something, just have to get off this to do that.

Much love,
Suzanne

P.S. Thanks for the comments ~ I always love to hear from you.

Thank you for being such a dear friend and for always making me laugh.

Hi Suzanne,

One final word about gray hair. In Paris is considered very chic; so much so that some women are actually dyeing their hair silver.

So there, all you gray-haired ladies out there!

PS I just posted a photo of my therapy dog at work
:-)

Robyn said...

Suzanne!

Hey there...sorry to hear about the whole Meno thing. That does suck! My mom was a bear during that time and she would end up dripping wet from her hot flashes. She has though since gotten better. She takes a natural supplement (I will get you the name).

Any woo...here is my email... grneyedraven3@hotmail.com

once you copy it delete if you don't mind...but it is on my blog too. Under complete profile. Naaa! Never mind. It's ok.

I will have to put up new photos up soon on something I have been working on or crafting on. There are things called Dotee Dolls. I LOVE IT! It has beading on it and so forth. Sweet little faces too. Ok...the doggy park was a riot! Glacier has a crush on a Yorkie...now...now stop your giggling! LMAO! It was so damn funny I almost fell over. The Yorkie would roll over and put her paws up and taunt Glacier as he put his big ol'nose by her wee bit of a nose and she then would place her paws on his snout! Too darn cute. And then Glac would woo her...no really lift his head and WOOOOOOOOOOOOO her! And then she would run around in circles with her non excistent tail wagging a hundred miles a minute.

Her owner and I were falling out with laughter. They played and leaped and laid next to each other for hours! And if other dogs came around 'Bella', Glacier would take his protective stance (which he does with me when a stranger approachs). And the other dogs would bow out.

I didn't bring my camera BUT who knew CasaNova would be so damn funny! Next Suzanne I gotta show you these 2 awkward pooches together! Hilarious!
Talk to you soon!
Love ya!

Suzanne said...

Robyn,

You're such a gem. When you said erase your email address, but mentioned it was on your blog, I though huhhhhhhhh!? Thank God you caught that and came to your senses. Now everyone on my blog will be writing to you. Good for them. You all deserve one another. No really, you do! You're the greatest collection of people/friends I've ever know (outside my family and close friends of course).

Yes, please get me the name of that "Natural Supplement. I can use all the help I can get.

You said and I quote "I will have to put up my new photos up soon." You used the word UP twice in one sentence. Redundant. Pay attention to little stuff like that. Okay? It makes ya sound a bit whacky. :)

Can't wait to see your dolls. Have you logged on to Frannie's blog by any chance? She's such a great lady and makes dolls too. Does all sort of things infact. Her hubby's a retired lawyer with the Justice Department and she's retired from the Washington world as well. They sold their beautiful million dollor home on the water in Annapolis to live out Frannie's dream in KY! (That's a great hubby! aka, Hunny Hunk.) They live in a very well known home that has been featured in gazillions of magazines and books (Cabin Creek Farm)...she recently renamed it however (Freedom Valley Farm). You would just adore her. If you have time, go back and read lots of her posts because they matter. She writes for Mary Jane's Farm, Merchantile Gatherings and a whole slew of other publications. She's the real deal and a dear friend. Take a peek.

All I can say and you know it's commin'...I hope the dogs are spay and neutered. It sounds like a very "SERIOUS" relationship and one that should be encouraged as long as it's SAFE! It's amazing how dogs instantly bond to one another. It's funny and we see it often with T-Bone. He's a great dog and makes wonderful friends with everyone: other dogs, kitties, squirrels, birds, people, etc. He's a very gentle soul, but also an absolute rascal. You'd love him and so would Glacier and Bella. Bring the camera next time to capture those two. Love to see them.

I'm going to write to Tena then go to your email. Talk to you soon.

Always love to hear from you!
XO Suzanne

Suzanne said...

I just reread my comment and caught all my spelling errors...and I'm correcting you!!!

Suzanne said...

Hi Tena!

Well as you're probably aware, my name is French, so now I know my hair has finally caught up with it. Does that make me "really, really" chic? Please say yes. Honestly, I know I'm not because French women are so lovely, and me, I run around in blue jeans, a tee shirt and flip flops and they're usually all ragged because I hate shopping! Apparel they wouldn't be seen in!

I think we "Grey Ladies" are lucky because we've realized times moves on and why fight a losing battle. Enjoy the process and life.

I'm so glad we met. You are always welcome here, so please stop by often. I do intend to post something new eventualy! I'm trying honey!

Lots of love,
Suzanne
P.S. Read your new post and loved it. That's one terrific dog.

Robyn said...

Would love to visit that blog of Frannie's..but where is the link? I couldn't see it on here. You stinker...always have to point out the obvious...huh? Spelling errors and such...LOL! I am the WORST speller and to think I went to collage too. GEeSH! I still wonder how I made it through. :)!

Email me at:

grneyedraven3@hotmail.com

And I don't mind emails just as long they are good ones...NO SPAM! LOL!

Well of course the doggies are 'taken care of in that area' what kind of mommy do you think I am. Just as Siam is too...:) wouldn't have it any other way! Bella of course is too. Suzanne you really should see those 2 together. Such an odd pair. But of course that is what people say about my husband and moi! No..no really they don't but I wonder what people think when they see us together.

Me very dark hair, hubby very strawberry blonde! Then the height thing...we are almost the same height. Me loud and wacky, hubby mellow and quiet. Oh well...I guess it comes from the saying 'if we were all the same, how boring this world would be...'

Ok, off now to load pics on my blog...gee that took me all day. I was so lazy today. Stayed in practically all day (except for the Glacier walk)wearing PJ's. Loved it haven't done that in a very long time!

Talk to you soon!
Love ya!

Suzanne said...

YHello my dear,

You are too funny. The link is over to the right under "LINKS," and reads: "MY DEAR FRANNIE!" Is that clear enough for you? Where the h*** DID you go to college?! This conversation sort of reminds me of the one with OnePic when he was asking for Ludmillia's link or something, and I misunderstood and thought he was asking about my link or something and wrote something wacky to him and he replied "Not you! J***** C*****." Or something along those lines. It was too funny. Okay...so we're good to go. You'll love Frannie.

Thank God everyone is "taken care of!" You know how important that is to me :).

Bye the way, have you had a chance to visit Tena at Inmywritemind1? She's a sweetie and I love her blog. Page down a few posts and watch that dog video, you will die. It's way to fun. You and Glacier should also visit Hobies World...that is one lucky dog!

Take some photos of the "odd couple," and oh, take some photos of the dogs too. (Sorry honey, couldn't resist.)

Well it's another early morning here at Rose Cottage Studio, so apparently nothing has changed because here my butt sits. Send along the name of that herbal remedy so maybe I can end this madness.

Love you dear ~ we'll chat soon.
XO Suzanne
P.S. I'll check out your email, it wasn't working earlier in the day
P.P.S. New concept. Perhaps I should stop posting and just have the comments be my blog!

Suzanne said...

Robyn,

I was wondering where that "Y" went.

Suzanne said...

Robyn,

Your email link is no link at all. What's up? Do I have to come over to Elk Grove and figure that out for you too?

XO

kylie said...

go to my profile page and mail me...please

Suzanne said...

Kylie,

I did. It didn't go through the first time and I'd failed to save it, so had to rewrite it! It appears to have successfully navigated the Pacific. Please don't tell me I'm in trouble. I'm a sissy.

XO Suze

bindhiya said...

Dear Suzanne,
Just stopping to say good morning to you.
Wish you a beautiful day...
I'll talk to you soon.

bindhiya said...

Dear Suzanne,
Here is a rice dish for you...it is easy to make...

* 4 cups cooked white rice (add a little oil to the raw rice before cooking it. This gives rice a better texture)
* 1 tsp mustard seeds
* 3 tbsp sesame or gingely oil
* 2 tbsp split-peas
* 2 tbsp groundnuts (peanuts)
* 1/2 tsp asafoetida
* 3-4 dry red chillies
* 4-5 curry leaves
* 2 lemons squeezed or 4 tbsp lemon concentrate
* 1 tsp turmeric powder
* 3/4 tbsp salt

[edit] Procedure

1. Heat the oil in a pan.
2. Add groundnuts and split-peas, fry until golden brown.
3. Add mustard seeds, asafoetida,curry leaves and red chillies (broken into pieces). Wait till the mustard seeds sputter.
4. Mix a little salt, turmeric powder and lemon concentrate.
5. Let it boil and reduce.
6. Remove pan from stove, add to the rice and mix well.

Hope you'll enjoy
love
bindi

kylie said...

sweetie, you're not in trouble.
and about your posting....no pressure, post when you're ready. don't get me wrong here but i think we adore you for your comments as much as for your posts.
(is my foot in my mouth?)
i know the tree is goin and i haven't said anything but i have noticed.....take your time. there's no timetable for grief.

Rhondi said...

Hi Suzanne
Just stopped by to say hello. I love the flower photos and I love your ramblings! It's fun to read your blog. Obviously I'm not the only one since there were 90 comments before me. You're very popular girlfiend! Rhondi

Ludmila M. said...

Hi my dear,
I feel better now, with all your support and caring,very nice to know it...Always putting me up..thank you!
XOXO Lud.

Suzanne said...

Bindi!

You're the greatest! Honestly. And yes, you were late. Too bad for you. Better luck with that tomorrow honey!!! Early menopause is your answer, or if I get the name of that natural remedy from Robyn, it's basically your ace in the hole.

Thanks for the recipe. It sound lovely, but I do have a few questions:

1. Split peas ~ cooked or dried?
2. Where do I find asafoetida and what is it?
3. Curry leaves. Where?

Do I have to go to a specialty Indian shop for asafoetida and curry leaves? If so, no problem, just let me know.

I was going to make the rice dish you left on Kylie's blog today, but when I read the expiration date on my spice jar I nearly died (let's just say I'm about a decade too late!), decided to throw it away. Was at the market today and was going to buy a new jar until I saw the price...over $6.00. What? For that little bottle?! A lot has changed in a decade. I'll try to find it for less because I've realized I'm rather cheap. Well, I don't know if that's the right word because I've never considered myself cheap, but 6 bucks for a hundred seeds, come on, there's gotta be a better deal out there some where.

As you know it's Martin Luther King Jr. Day and in honor of him I was going to make Red Beans and Rice, as well as collard greens. I've never had either. I bought the collard greens, but when I Googled recipes learned the "scent" while cooking them is rather offensive. I didn't want to risk it. It's raining here today and a bit chilly, so I can't open the windows. Okay, collard greens are out (I read on Google the leaves can be hung from doors to ward off evil spirts. I have only two entrances to the house and about 12 leaves. Any suggestions?). I then read the recipe for Red Beans and Rice. I'm a vegetarian, as you know, so I would never add all the sausage, ham, etc., but thought I'd take your advice, flavor the rice then just dump a can of warmed red bean on top! Voila, an authentic meal to celebrate Dr. King. Nope...here I sit instead, talking to all of you. I'm sure Dr. King appreciates the thought and the effort that went into buying all the ingredients. Right? Now I just have to figure out what to do with it.

Oh, and thanks for the oil on the rice advice. I can actually see that helping. I learned how to make sushi so know all about how to wash rice (FOREVER!!!), but wasn't aware of the oil trick. I'm going to try that tomorrow. I'm eager to view the results. I'll take a photo if it's good.

Love you sweetie. Thanks for being here.

XO Suzanne :)
P.S. Hope all is well in your home. Hugs all around.

Suzanne said...

Dearest Kylie,

You are absolutely correct my dear, there is no time table for grief, is there? It's a tree, but it's as if it's a family member. I feel as if I'm in a perpetual nightmare. I don't really know how to explain it. Perhaps when she's all gone it will get easier, but right now it feels absolutely horrible to see a dear friend die and then be carted off like yesterdays news. It's just awful. And you know me, I don't deal well with death or loss. I'm really whimpy in that respect, but then of course, I think of what other people struggle to endure and my problem seems rather tiny. So I'm trying to keep every thing in perspective, but honestly, I've been crying A LOT. The yard just looks barren without that beautiful tree. I look in the wee hours of the morn, at dusk, during bright sunshine, in a moonlit sky, in complete darkness and the void she has left is humbling. I know she is a metaphor for life. The keeping and the letting go. It is a desperate struggle. I'm crying just writing this. Not out of complete sadness because I'm grateful she was in my life. I must have over a hundred pictures of her. Why? Who knows? I'm just so grateful for the memory. I've realized it's a wonderful thing to have nature as a buffer. Life seems more beautiful with it than without.

I will post again, I promise, but this post is just proving to be a struggle because I start crying, can't stop, then move on to happier things. But I can't not write it. Do you know what I mean? It's energy that has to be released and it will, eventually. Like Rob said, "We have to move on." And I will.

Thank you so much for your friendship and for trusting me. I value our relationship beyond measure. I'm confident I will know you all the days of my life.

Much love,
Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Rhondi!

You made me laugh girl friend. Half the comments are mine so you have to subtract!!! See...now so not impressive after all! I do have dear friends though, you included. This blogging thing has proved to be quite remarkable. I never realized that when I posted my comment on the opening headline (or what ever it's called), my dream would be realized. It's become EXACTLY what I envisioned. Exactly. I could not hope for a better outcome. It also helps not to post for weeks because people just keep coming back and increasing the numbers! I actually don't think I'm that popular, I think I just have a good strategy.

Love you dear and thanks for always stopping by. I'll visit soon.

Much love,
Suzanne

Suzanne said...

Lud,

You know how much we all love an support you, that's a given. You'll find your way sweetie, with or without us.

My advice...get a good solid job and everything else will fall into place. As a woman, if you're financially secure, you have room to dream.

You know I love you. Thanks for your post today, it was terrific. I'll comment on your blog.

Huge hugs and kisses,
Suzy

Hi Suzanne,
Forgive me for reminding you about your tree you lost; but you are an artist. How would you feel about painting your tree on canvas from a photo or memory? Just a thought.
