I observe. A lot. My sister, Seester, is always telling me I think too much and have too many ideas, and by the way would I stop spouting off about them already, I’m making her head spin.

She’s my best friend, so she says it with humor.

Most of the time.

The BFF who keeps me in line (me on left; Seester on right).

I’m always coming up with ideas on how to improve–well I would say improve, she would say that only I think every idea is an improvement. Let’s split that half-way and say that I have ideas about how to change what is and ideas about why something else isn’t the way that (I think) it should be.

Seester might approve of that explanation.

Now I’m married to a fellow who finds me entertaining way more often than he finds me irritating. So far, unlike Seester, he hasn’t told me to stop speaking already. Maybe when he knows me for fifty years, he’ll feel differently.

That brings me back to my first statement. I observe all the time and ask questions about what I observe. It’s not being judgmental that makes me ask, it’s a true desire to know and to understand what it is I’m seeing. So please don’t take offense if something I jabber about strikes you wrong. I wouldn’t be mean on purpose, but accidentally I do screw up.

I’ve got a million questions like a three-year old and I’ve got as many opinions as a quartet of old men playing poker.

There you have it—read on if you want to, but if the ride I’m on drives you nuts, I warned you.

    Hi Rose,
    I found your blog as part of the WD October Platform Challenge. Have you ever traveled to Maine or France? (perhaps you just haven’t had the chance to immortalize these two magnificent places yet in a post befitting of their beauty)These are 2 of my favorite places to be. Maine-have visited several times on vacation. It is a beautiful beautiful place. I want to live there. France-I’ve traveled there almost daily…in my mind. I hear it’s a beautiful beautiful place and I want to live there. (working on a blog post about these 2 kindred places in my mind)

    Well,per Platform Challenge instructions, I will leave with you a favorite post from my blog:http://karenadoll.blogspot.com/2014/06/life-lessons-my-chickens-taught-me.html

    Wishing you many more travels with insights from a red headed bent!! Let me know if you ever get the yen to visit gay Paris? Maybe you’ll see me there too!

    Sincerely,
    Karen

      Welcome to my Musings, Karen. I have been to Europe many times (Lyon, Paris, Toulouse). If you check the Tags (right side area) for France–the related posts should pop right up for you. Lyon is a lovely town. I have not been to Maine–yet. It’s certainly on the list.

      Also as per the WD challenge, I’ll pop over to your blog.
