And How are YOU??....

It has always been considered common courtesy to ask people how they are doing, when you meet up with them in a store or any public place. Have you even noticed how many people ask this as they are zooming by you in a store, not even pausing for the...

Yellow Flowers......

Elise entered the room quietly, not wishing to disturb her patient. His eyes were bandaged, as his burns were fairly serious. She crossed the room with the vase of flowers placing them on his bedside table. They were nothing fancy, just some blooms...

Still as the Night...

The smell of roses waft over me, as I lay still as the night. Surprisingly I am not cold, though I know I lay above an icebox. I am comfortable in my final resting place, my coffin. The silk I lay on is soft against my skin. The percale sheet I...

Strip Rook Party....

So last night I had the craziest dream, ever! I dreamed that R.J. and were I invited to a party where they were going to be playing Strip Rook. First of all, is there such a thing? Oh dear! For some ungodly reason, we went. Now picture this...a house...

Tripping in the Rain....

Well folks, yesterday afternoon I tripped over to the eye doctor for an eye check up. He was really upset with me that I hadn't been to see him in two years. This a big no no, as my plaquenil (immune suppressant) is damaging to the eyes. So this meant...

The Soldier...Please listen........

No one does the Memorial Day justice like Celestial Navigations. I wanted to share this video with you. It brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it. God Bless America.. Pray for our soldiers at war...or keeping the peace elsewhere in the...

DEAREST STAR FRIEND THINGY...

This morning I said a little prayer for you. While the rest of the world is moving forward with their lives, you sit on thoughts.com, trying to demoralize people. You read heart felt posts (or perhaps you don't read them at all), then you de-star them....

Busy Day Ahead...

So folks..I have a busy day ahead. Today I shall have 9 little people in the daycare. We will be busy as little bees. It is a wet, cool day so we shall be inside for the duration. I am hoping it warms up so that we might get outside in the afternoon....

Hoarders No More...

Since I've become addicted to Buried Alive a Hoarder's Story, I look at my house with total suspicion. Every pile of mail gets a second look, and laundry does not pile up period. I've always been a clean house kind of person, but now I have stepped it...

PICS....Bald River Falls in Cherokee National Fore

Finally made it up to the MOUNTAINS..The joy was all mine. Such Beauty. I do not have time to write a proper blog, so I thought I'd share with pics..Enjoy!! :) R.J. enjoyed my camera a bit, taking lots of pictures of me. I...

Dearest Mother..It's Mother's Day....

I cried today when I read the book "Love You Forever", but I always do. This book is about the love of a mother for her child, and the love said child returns at the end of his mother's life.  I cried when I sang the verse on each page that goes: ...

Scooting on Down the Totem Pole......

Just a little story for you this morning. The names have been changed to protect the innocent..and no judgments have been made. Innocent until proven guilty, we are. Hmmm..Not so much! Last night, after a very busy day in the daycare, I sat down...

Stolen from MeanDean, Who Stole it from Nighbane,

Sleep with or without clothes on? I love to feel the cool of percale sheets on my skin..naked Prefer black or blue pens? Blue is a beautiful color, black for special notes Dress up on Halloween? Nada! Like to travel? Can I hitch my...

Happy Mother's Day!!! .....pics...

So this morning in the daycare we made Mother's Day gifts for the mom's in the daycare. I wanted to do a post of pictures to show you the joy we had in making them. I would have loved to have taken pics of them actually planting them, but I was busy...

My So Called Life....number ??? I forget....

After my seventh grade year, our family moved out to God's little acre. We had been living in the city all of my life, then one day my parents announced we were moving to the country. We loaded up in our big van (with no seats), all 9 of us, and drove...

Holding My Tongue.....

Sometimes I find it hard to hold my tongue, but I  choose to do it. As I've gotten older, this has been one of my goals. When someone says something I don't agree with, I am slow to react. I realize that my opinion is just that, my opinion. It isn't...

Carry On....

So it is Tuesday and hopefully a dry day for a change. The children are antsy to get outside, and I miss sitting in my porch swing watching them play. For people who don't own a porch swing, I am sorry. The joy that is mine whilst I sit under my deck...

Because He Needs It...

1) Is it grossly unfair for the adults ( over age twenty-one ) in a neighbourhood to declare one address within said neighbourhood a child-free zone?  No, not if the neighborhood is exclusive, and buyers bought in with the understanding  that it would...

You Take Me the Way I am....

It is nice to be accepted. Nice to feel that no matter what, somebody's got your back. Nice to know that even on your down days, someone knows how you feel and will commiserate. Sometimes we all go through bad times, we struggle within...

Dodged a Bullet....Is it Fate?..

Last night, we dodged a bullet. The flooding went around us, though we did have a fair amount of rain. I'm always astounded at the destruction the weather can have on our world. Just a few miles up the road, there was major flooding with 70 cars under...

Relaxing....

So, I am hiding in my bedroom. R.J. is in the living room in his recliner, on his laptop. He is listening to Roy D Mercer audio, and has the weather channel on full blast. In turn, I have youtube on and both doors closed. Guess what? I can still...

Wet..Wet..Wet.. pics

It is a wet day in my little neck of the woods. We are bracing for a huge storm..with flooding. Yuck! Took time out to snap a few pics yesterday. This azalia bush is located by the side of the road near my home. It is full of beautiful blooms, and...

Stolen from Nightbane...again...sigh!

  #1: If you could change any law, what would it be and what would you change it to?   That any and all child molestors be put to death immediately. :O    #2: What kind of people get on your nerves the most? ...

My Barn Obsession.....pics

I'm not sure why I love old barns, but I do. Perhaps it is because it seems they are holding on to the past, as we creep slowly towards the future. Like a reminder of how things have been, and for some will always be. I live in the country, where in...
