Mindlessness and Menapause

Well, my may have noticed that I have been missing for quite a while.  To be frank, I have temporarily lost my mind due to symptoms of menopause.  I haven't been able to function as a human being for a few months now.  The mood swings, the lack of focus, and the hot flashes have been all I could handle.

As the symptoms seem to be subsiding, I am going to try to get back to my blogging.  I have really missed sharing my thoughts with all of you!

There will be some pretty cool changes coming to Anna Pearls Attic very soon.  I have joined an affiliate program.  They offer country lifestyle products for reasonable prices and I am excited to start that adventure.  Watch for the links to appear in the very near future. 

Another of my goals is to include more recipes and tutorials.  My mother was an amazing cook and she taught me all she knew.  Since we lost her four years ago, I would like to honor her by sharing some of that knowledge with you.

I am committed to the blogging process and promise to continue to "wow" you with my creative genius! "Not!"

Ode to the Desert

The Call of the Desert
By: Sherone Taylor
My folks live in the desert
Somewhere south of here and there.
They talk about the beauty.
They say they want to share
With all the family living
In the mountains far away.
Come to the desert, children
We're betting you will stay.
The mountain folk came to see
If the desert was the place
To settle in as old folks
With wrinkles on our face.
Though living in places green
Has always been our way
We think we might just venture
To the desert just to play.
Our winters are too harsh
in the God forsaken land.
We want to toast our frosty toes
In the sunshine and the sand.
Wise Mother and Wise Father,
Your example we must heed.
The plant that you are growing
Started as your seed!

Layered Beauty

Another photo of the area near Kanab, UT.  This was taken while we were sitting in construction.  I was bored, so started snapping pictures.  This is an example of layered sandstone.  A beautiful reminder that our earth is very old and very beautiful.
