Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head....pics...

Indeed I did slip outside and took a few water pics. Due to the deluge of water falling, I couldn't exactly grasp the shot I wanted. That and the fact that I was holding an umbrella in one hand, and a $1300. dollar camera in the other. Not a good...

It's Raining...It's Pouring...Shemelts is Melting.....

I remember when we moved out to God's country, it was my first encounter with sleeping under a roof where I could hear the rain. I would climb up in that bed with 5 pillows surrounding me, and sleep for hours. I think this is where I came to...

What a NICE Break....pics...

So friends, I had a wonderfully relaxing four day break. I spent some of it cleaning and mopping my house. I mopped my kitchen floor 4 times on Saturday. I just couldn't get it to shine like I wanted it to, not to mention I was getting a great all...

A Few Visitors...and Gun Shots...

So, we had a decent Thanksgiving dinner together. RJ's parents came, and all went well. His mom has mellowed a LOT!  After dinner Sunshine went outside, and then called into the house (cell phone) to let us know there were deer in our yard. As I had...

Scribbles Challenge 95..A Thanksgiving Memory...

The house was a bevy of activity as the Thanksgiving meal was prepared. Mom was in the kitchen, apron wrapped around her and tied quickly in the back. She kneaded the homemade bread in a huge pottery bowl, cream with pale blue and pink stripes around...

Dear Responsibility...take a hike...

I'm between a rock and a hard place right now. I hate that. Ugh! So here is the deal. I have a 3 yr old boy in the daycare. Beautiful, spirited, busy, and a stinker. He is a tad impulsive, well maybe more than a tad. Mom and I have had a few words,...

My Thankful List....

I have many reasons to be Thankful every single day of the year. It seems this time of the year gives us the opportunity to reflect on all those reasons. Before I make that list, I want to say to all the people facing this Thanksgiving and Christmas...

Quiet Moments....

For the first time in a very long time, it is quiet in my home. RJ is metal detecting at the lake, CB is asleep and Sunshine is with her boyfriend B at his home celebrating Thanksgiving. It is really nice to have some time alone. I can't get past my...

Tick..Tick..Tick..Tock...

The clock has officially become my enemy. With the time change, and the cooler weather moving in, my sleep pattern is off. I'm exhausted early in the night, and just want to crawl in the bed. Once in the bed, I'm having difficulties falling asleep....

Since I Left You....

My Sunshine just introduced me to this cute video. I love it. :) Enjoy!   peace and love and all that jazz :) shemelts

This Place called Thoughts.....

You know folks, I just have to say that I love this place called thoughts. There are many reasons why I make that statement, but mostly it is because of you. You are everything that makes this place awesome. If we had a dollar for every smile that...

Oh Dear!!! I Goofed....

So it should be apparent to you that I work in childcare. I own a home daycare that houses seven enthusiastic children daily. They arrive at 7 and leave at 5, some of them are here for that entire day (the shame). Anyways, my favorite time of day is...

scribbles challenge 94 Human-Nature...Oh my!

Human? She was not so sure, as she peered over into the incubator at their latest patient. Nothing in medical school had prepared her for the visual in front of her. Her heart gave a tumble, as it fell to the pit of her stomach. She swallowed back her...

Scribbles Challenge...94... Human--Nature...

Human I am, I'll admit that..but still. Why? Why here, and why now? What is it about this man that draws me in? Sure he is handsome, and that smile..now that smile is one to write home about. Something in the way he moves his hands, constant.... as if...

Oh Facebook...you make me laugh...

Facebook is the perfect place to be a voyeur.  You can sit back and watch people's lives. The ups and the downs, and the downright unbelievable. I have reconnected with a few people, though no one majorly important. I do get to talk to my cousins, who...

The Price of Admission....pics for you...

I have written before about the price of admission. Mostly this relates to the fact that in every relationship, there is a price to pay to be in it. For me there are several prices to pay. I have to accept that RJ is a tad OCD. I have to accept that...

a quote..

“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me -- Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” ~Shel Silverstein peace :) shemelts

Ginger and Me....

Funny how things change as we grow older. For me, aging has not been a very big deal. It is what is, and I'm accepting of that. What I'm not happy about, is the complications I am having with food allergies. As a child, I was never aware of my food...

The Baby Daddy on The Jerry Springer Show

People amaze me on a constant basis. They don't usually amaze me in a good way either. No, they shock me, and make me shake my head. What am I on about this morning? Well let me just tell you.   I suppose it takes a certain sort to be excited...

Thanksgiving Memories with Recipes for Jenny....

Our family has always been big on Thanksgiving. What with a family of 10, and a large extended family, we had to be. My mother would plan the menu a month in advance, and slowly gather the items needed to cook the meal. She made a huge master list,...

Scribbles Challenge 93...Oops!!

Trish slammed her car into reverse, and backed right into Carlos's prized Monte Carlo. As metal met metal, she smiled remembering all the times he spent polishing and painting this car, that could have been spent with her. The money taken right out of...

I'm Back From Certain Death...

Well folks it finally happened. I about killed my fool self, in fact it was very close. I think most of you know I have severe food allergies. I took shots for 5 years, and am on a maintenance drug called allegra 180. I try to avoid any food that...
