I misspoke, I meant to say that brown eggs are closer to natural….

I guess 😂 !

If you’re wondering what that means, listen to me ramble/rant about not being able to find a damn thang in the stores!

LadyG just having a little fun to brighten up the days!

Love you!

Back Together Again! Ron Brown and LadyG

 

Greetings!

I just wanted to step back on the blog after a long hiatus to check in with you guys!

I have truly missed you all, and I want you to know that you were never far away from my heart.

So, let’s talk about the title of this post…

Today marks an exciting new beginning!  To be specific, my dear cousin Ron and I are planning to do several collaborative projects that will involve writing, shooting videos and possibly podcasting.

Many of you will remember our collaborations during the early days of this blog.  In fact, Ron is featured here under the category “Ron’s Time Tunnel.”

He is also heavily featured, along with your’s truly, under the “Flowering Vine” category where we detail our Southern roots; not to mention the complexities of race.

For those of you who do not know, Ron and I are first cousins.  His mother and my father are siblings.  And, frankly, the “Flowering Vine” is a great place to start for folks who are interested in getting to know our family.

But, I digress….

Just know that Ron, a veteran of The United States Air Force, is a magnificent writer and storyteller who has his own blog.

In addition to the writing that he does there, he recently completed his Master’s degree.

YAAAAY and congratulations!

Suffice it to say, Cuz has been BUSY!!!!

Anyway, today, I am so happy to present a video of Ron speaking at his church during a Friends and Family Celebration for Black History Month.

Now, before we proceed, I must inform you that the video was recorded on a cell phone and it is a bit grainy…Not to mention the fact that I had to crop out a couple of beautiful church hats!

LOL!

Hey!  Speaking of church hats, Ron wrote about those magnificent adornments in this post.

Moving on!

Despite the technical constraints, I’d like to take time to thank my cousin, Aleshia, Ron’s sister, for recording the festivities.

NOW…

Here’s the video and I hope you enjoy it!

Please feel free to comment.

Love and light, LadyG 😘💋💋

Please check out this post that my good friend Dr. K. E. Garland asked me to write for her blog’s “Self-Love” series.

Many of you may already know Dr. Garland as the author of The Unhappy Wife.

Well, in addition to that, she is also the Editor of Daddy, an anthology which includes stories written by women about their relationships with their fathers.  Tikeetha Thomas, a well-known blogger on WP is featured in Daddy.

Both of these ladies are fierce in this writing game and I encourage you to check them out, if you haven’t already.

Also, be sure to catch the latest edition of the “Self Love” series as it is written by my dear sister, Michelle, who is also the very talented author of a love poem that I recently read on this blog entitled, “Present Distance.”

You can find Michelle here.

Seriously, check her out! I can assure you that you will NOT be disappointed.

I hope you enjoy my piece.  Let’s discuss it in comments 🙂

PS:  I will continue the poetry readings through Valentines Day.  That said, you will not want to miss my reading of one of the baddest poets on WP, Braeden Michaels!

Love and Light,

LadyG 😘💋💋

 

A New Blog

IMG_1463

Hello Friends and Family,

I hope that you guys are doing well!

I’m just dropping by to say hello, and to let you know that I have started another blog where I will be posting material that is more spiritual/ethereal in nature.

Rest assured, I plan to maintain this blog as well…even though it doesn’t always look like it! LOL!

Anyway, to be frank, I decided to create a second blog because the content that I am presenting there won’t necessarily be of interest to the followers here.

Now…

To be clear, I haven’t changed at all…

I’m just ready to show another side of me.

That said, I love the followers of seekthebestblog and I wouldn’t want to alienate any of you.  I hope to continue to see you all here from time to time 🙂 so please keep following me!

At any rate, if you happen to be interested in seeing what I’ve been up to lately, please feel free to check me out at:

Love and light 😘💋💋

LadyG

I’m Good!

Update post pic

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last pecked out a post on the old typewriter 🙂

And no, I have not lost interest in blogging…

I’ve just been busy with life stuff.

No worries though, it’s been mostly sunny with a few scattered showers but that’s to be expected right?

I plan to pick back up with new posts some time in mid to late May.

Meanwhile, I’ll be trolling your blogs—in a good way! 🤣

A special thanks to those who reached out via e-mail!

I appreciate that very much.

By the way, if you are interested, you can always poke around on my Instagram page to see what I’m up to.

I’ll be ‘seeing’ you guys soon 🙂

Love and light to you all!

Lady G 😘💋

 

The Flowering Vine: Mother’s Diet, Fashion, and Beauty Tips

mother-and-daddy
My Daddy and my Grandmother (We all call her Mother)  (1992)

 

Dear Gwin or LadyG or whoever you call yourself when you write,

This is Mother, and I just want to let you know that I’ve been reading those blots that you and Ronnie have and I enjoy them very well.

I’ve also been looking around at other blots and I’ve found people talking about all kinds of things.

So, with that in mind,  I thought I might try writing a blot about how to keep yourself up after you turn 80.

I am hoping that your readers will appreciate this advice as it will stand the test of time.

Now…

Diet:

I keep my meals pretty simple.  You know the doctor said I was borderline diabetic so I have to watch my sugar.  That being the case, I usually eat 2 small cookies with my lunch and my dinner.

Listen now, don’t ever eat sweets between meals ’cause it won’t balance out–your sugar will go too high.  You always need something with it to keep it from shooting up.

Oh and I don’t drink full sugar drinks, I like diet Pepsi with my meals.

 

Fashion:

Always, always, always make sure your pants and skirts have elastic in the waist so you can be comfortable wherever you go.

A good pair of ear-bobs will help you to look nice and neat.

Beauty:

I bathe with Ivory soap and I always put Oil of Olay on my face; it keeps my skin from wrinkling.

If I’m going out, I use some scissors to cut off any stray hairs that crop up on my chin.

Since my hair started turning gray, I’ve been using V05 hair cream to keep it from going yellow.

Gwin, ain’t nothing worse than a head full of gray hair with a yellow cast to it.

Also make sure you use a good sponge roller for your bangs.

Well, that’s it for now.

I hope that some of your readers will find these tips useful.  I’ll go down in the comment section for a little while to answer questions. Tell your readers to begin their comments with “Dear Mother” if they want to talk to me about my blot.

Otherwise, they can talk to you.

Sincerely,

-Mother
