I’m sitting at the base of a mountain, more or less, breathing in a piney smell, listening to birds, an occasional hummingbird’s soft sound and then the loud obnoxious caw of the crow. The sky is dark with rain clouds, the thunder is booming in the distance. It’s a cool 70* which just so happens to also be the high temperature of the day. My senses are Alive. Aware. Awake.
Glorious. That’s a word that can be used, and is used by the locals around here. The rain comes daily this season, beautiful, refreshing, life-giving rains. It waters the tall pines, rushes over rocks in little streams, wets the pine needles cluttering the ground, cools the air until little goose bumps rise from my skin. “Isn’t it glorious?” the people say to no one in particular. They speak to the pines, the deer, the birds.
Yes, we all agree silently.

I’m Angel, a.k.a. Rocket Surgeon, and these are my chronicles. I love writing and I believe our stories should be shared, so here you’ll find anecdotes of my life, loves, worries, fears, joys, and experiences.
I blog about my mishaps and adventures as a wife, mommy, auntie, wanna-be writer, teacher, Texan, country/city/mountain girl, cereal killer and Jesus-freak.
A few things you might discover about me:
•Jesus is my everything; without Him I am nothing, but with him I can do all things
•My family makes this world a better place for me to live in
•I adore chickens, the live ones, although the cooked ones aren’t too bad either
•I have 2 dogs: Grace and Ozzie. And one cat: Rocky Muffin
•My dream job would be to raise chickens and write best sellers
Thanks for stopping by. Kick off your shoes and stay awhile. I know your time is valuable and I honor you for spending a few moments here with me. I hope you find something to brighten your day, lighten your load, make you chuckle and remind you of the good in the world.

Is this like “Where’s Waldo”? I can’t imagine where you are but wherever it is… I WANT TO BE THERE TOO! It is 102 degrees (record breaking) here today! Sounds heavenly and I’m definitely envious for sure. Rain? what is that exactly. Been a while since we’ve seen that! Here’s hoping you are enjoying your time and have a safe trip home. Until next time …. Donna H.
It’s a nice break from the heat! Wish you were here. I’d love to talk with you face to face!
Your glorious surroundings agree with you and your writing. This was wonderful. Short. Simple. Wonderful. And this… “”Isn’t it glorious?” the people say to no one in particular. They speak to the pines, the deer, the birds.

LD, your comment means the world to me.
