A Month Gone By

It is really not long before a month goes by.
Just tomorrow will be a month since I last made an entry.
Blogging so much like keeping a diary.
Just wonder if anyone much does that anymore?
My Dad does daily write on a large calendar of the day's
event. He has done it for years probably 50 yrs.
I remember when being young he would do it.
He feels it is important to do so. Yes he still reviews
past calendars to see what happened and when.

I really like to be more faithful in keeping a journal,
a blog or something.
What i really like to do is to teach a small sewing class
for kids. Kids that actually want to learn how to sew.
I Hope to do this,I have wanted to for a long time.
Something to think about something to work on doing.

It been a cloudy day, some rain, darkness is coming quickly
and it time to let the doggies out they have been napping
but I now hear Belle scratching and whining at the side door
( the garage room).

I need to do something , I need to sew, that is where feel
I am being productive.
I have plenty of projects,curtains that need making.
I like to make some elves;I just need some motivation
in doing this.

I also an a procrastinator I NEED and WANT to clean up that
GARAGE ROOM , where the doggies spend their nights and rainy
days. It need to be a room of productivity not a room to hoard
things and or JUNK in. A Christmas tree would be nice there...
I need days off and Sunshine and a will to get rid of stuff .

ticking early in the AM .
Welcome September

Never Give UP!

This is exactly what was under my bed this am. A little red band with the words Never Give Up. How appropriate , just what I needed , though so many times in the Bible we are told that, some how finding it today it made it was onto my left hand. My left hand, no particular reason, perhaps it used less than right, but when I look down I can see the words NEVER GIVE UP . It is a keeper!

I know so many things always need to be done, so MUST Muster the Movements to get a Moving if today i do in fact get something accomplished. It such a beautiful morning cool fells like 68 degrees with teh wind blowing, min fact it is 69 now in Navarre, 65 in Murfreesboro, 70 in New York, 77 in San Antonio,and 58 in Cupertino where every in the world that is I DON'T know. San ANtonio is to get 103 today so enjoy your 77 right now.

One thing I really want to do this week is go to the Wilson County Fair . Their Fairs, my understanding though I not ever been after 58 years of life, are TOP NOTCH. Why, becuase they put everything into it!
Banana DERBY is enough to make me want to go though i awant to before i ever here of this event, monkeys riding dogs in a ring , Monkeys are so funny anyway!

My neighbor is bush hogging he only like 87 yrs old! such a sweet man with a gentle spirit!
Well it's off to get a couple of things done today perhaps it be many since i do not need to give up .
My son has a job interview , he is very upbeat about it and prayfully it will be a opportunity that will be of much benefit to him.
I let you know more of this later.
Now to sign out and off of this tech. world of communication.

The Walls of Religion

The Walls of Religion need to be broken.
It bad when you can not talk or
show someone
how much you might care about them
because of these
walls of religion.

People are too easily offended.

The Bible is plain and we as people make it complex.
In the book The Shack,
the discussion of God and his relationship with his
children is simple. It is the institutions that tear
people,family, friends and others apart.

One day God will break down all walls;
until then they will just be something to block
friendship and fellowship,and we

stumble and fall and get up again.

May we always have God holding our hand and not let go.
And when we do, may we have courage and strength to
reach again for His hand. Amen.

Totally Crazy!

It is JULY 16 th!!!!!
this favorite month is almost gone! Why favorite?
Well the many of the most important people I love
are born in this month. Mom first of all then course

I really ment to make a note on my B Day
but did not that how fast and perhaps furious this month

July 1 st

Well it is about time I made a new entry. Ha since it been 20 days ago. I so wish sometime that a day was a week and then i could get a lot more done on my days off and the days I took vacation. As it stands I have not hardly made a path to walk in. I am planting flowers that have been yearning for the ground since probably the first of May what a shame, sorry flowers that your sibling flowers are growing so beautiful and you are so confined to your container. Today is the day the Weather Vane Almanac says I can plant and you will thrive, so hopefully with miracle grow and plenty of water you will catch up in your growth. Time to plant the seeds also today and tomorrow.(well actually it says that is is favorable for planting peas,tomatoes, and other fall crops bearing above ground. sow grain and forage crops,whatever that is.)so I am taking the risk and planting and transplant, otherwise the gonna die anyway . hopefully the moon is in the right place (phase)
Tomorrow is a big day . Mom Birthday she be 88 years old. We the daughters are having a QUEEN for The Day Celebration. Just her daughters and her. So in all due respect i musst close and continue with the transplanting of flowers and then on to town to ppick out a card and whatever else I need.

It is also my son and his wife's 4th Anniversary. I need to find something special for the two of them also. That is why I need more time in a day.
hopefully I can post some photos later. In case some mignt want to see them. :)

response to a blogger

Kate yes, if you pull the skin off before roasting it will be dry.
And of course you can pull the skin off after it is roasted.
regarding eating chitlins, cracklins or CHICKLINS :), I rather not swallow any, and yes I use to break the necks of chicken on the farm dip them in the black kettle of boiling water and pluck the feathers off for my mom to fry for Sunday dinner. Best Chicken every she just fry up the hearts,gizzards and we would fight over them. (7 Kids)
But people are healthier back then than now, I sure it healthier than all the fried “JUNK foods we buy, chips etc
It would seem to me that Chicken grease would fall under those unhealthily categories of “bad” oil.That is one reason that people triglercyerides are so dangerously elevated. Thought the taste might be wonderful and of course all those southern foods are delicious but look at the statistics. FAT is not all good! Advice, use the good FATs and OILS. Moderation is also the key. Though my Parents are pushing 88 and 91 they use the bad oils all their lives and grew up on the naturally organic stuff they grew and raised until their later years so what can anyone really say?

Dear Lord,
What can I say but thank YOU
for a new day.

Yesterday was with
It ended with certainty.
I am so thankful.

Peace for my beloved son and our family.
I can rejoice!

Yesterday started with what was
a usual sort of day,
until I felt the need to
simply, gently
blow my nose. At approx 0545 it began.
As most normal sometimes a little
blood might show up on a
tissue; well a little was there
and there was a little more.
Then I start to think of what meds
I had the night b 4;
well 600mg of Ib and an Allegra.
I had not taken my bp med that AM
because i had not eaten
and my bp had not been that high.
But what ever happen ...Happened!
My nostril was running like an open faucet.
I thought perhaps we could get to our first
point of interest but within 2 seconds my only thought
was "Mike take me to the ER NOW."
Beside making one phone call and ignoring
the 3 incoming calls, Mike was looking at the road
and looking a me : knowing i looked like someone
you see on horror movies.

Some traffic was slow.
I told Mike "pass everything, run lights
when you can and keep moving fast."
I remember hearing his flashing lights
I suppose we looked like a F-150 ambulance.

I am human and can not think sometimes on
how to treat myself, treating others is different.
All nurses and Drs know that and we all tend
to ignore our self and look out for the other person
and we get scared like the other humans , the humans like you.
I honestly thought my brain sprang a leak!
Well it does happen and with family history, it is possible.
It was an artery ( small one) in my nose-- that close enough to my BRAIN!
I kept thinking i am still awake and that is good.
Thank God for ERs, I do not believe I could work in one. Yes, ERs are more Dramatic than you see on Scrubs and Grey's Anatomy!!
There is a reason those does are locked!

Peace in the valley and God walks with us!
Much need relief for Jeff came yesterday,hopefully he will be working soon,
thing are looking brighter.
Part of a saying is "I Believe in the Sun when it is not Shining!"
Thank you God for everything you give.Amen.

So why am I blogging

I am not sure,
so many things to do
so many places to go
want to just sat and read
but not time to clean the floor.
My daughter graduates Sat.
The party is at 5,
No planned out menu written,
just all inside my head.

so who cares it the house is
floating the rain is not going to stop
OH but wait the news said
cut your grass today
the sun will pop out midday and then it
rain again.
So it that a hint of sunshine
I better rise and shine.
this day is non productive
if I sat her on my hind!!!

commenting on the good ,the bad and the ugly of gift registering

I better keep my mouth shut.......
but i won't .......

I had 2 showers.........
both total approx
10 gifts the most expensive was probably under 15 dollars........
There was NO gift cards.........
and no room to not appreciate "what I did or did not get".
Life should be Simple in all things. Everyone should remember that. YOU get what you pay for but good sense also prevails, you dont need a $ 10 potato peeler when you can get one for $2.
My suggestion is that probably every woman should have approx 6-7 kids (as my mom did)and learn to deal with what you do have. I DID NOT follow that and might have been better if I had. I can't not imagine what the future generation holds.
YOu have some good suggestions. Just remember TO KEEP IT SIMPLE and get your thank you card started in advance . So what if they didn't send a gift or the one you did not want thank them for the special thought and dont wait the " your have up to 3- 6 months to be proper" in getting them sent.(they forget OR really remember who you are by that time)

Spring sprung about a month ago.

I really behind on blogging my thoughts.
I have a sinus cold.I feel horrible could
feel worse Hope it doesnt get there.

I have a new floor , It exciting!
Birch laminate looks like real hardwood.
30 yr warranty probably outlast me even it not
I probably will not care at that time of the Life.
Kitchen,dining,lr,halls all flow the same and
the bedrooms are carpet. Much nicer than walking
on painted subfloors.
If felt better i would try to post a phot or 2.
This is short. more later when i feel better.

I t's been a Ugly DAY

I rarely don't say things like that even if i think it.
Just try to ,Just try to move on, but this day has been ugly,
no SUN I MISS THE SUN!!!!!!!
I have not gotten anything but a few dishes washed.
Breakfast consist of eating dry granola without MILK.
I choked and cough til I had to quite eating it.
Mike has napped most of the day. I tried since I got
in bed so late,very unusal to to so; I got approx
6 hour and felt like I had none.
But nap time was interrupted by a series of text messages
and 2 phone called. so I got an hour nap.

And the sun still has not had time to rise . I guess the SUN
is tired and wants a nap too!

I should go do something fun.
what would that be?????????

It is Raining and it is not suppose to do that til Thursday

I have some relief that now something
is in plan for a certain situation.
Though no one reads or much else comments
YOU never know if it is read. Some things
You might like to write but some things are
My prayer is that this will help to relief a
lot of stress on a particular individual
that I Love More
than I know how to describe.

I Was wanting to write a scripture . So many of us
will read blogs and books and magazines but find
it hard to read from our Bibles that we say we
can not do without.
Well in reality it our cell phones, our i-pods
our facebook accounts, our entertainment:
whether it is our wide-screen TV, our Wii systems,
our X-Boxes games, video,DVDs, candy bars
soda, gas in our cars.

Need I say more?
You understand were I am going.
WE say one thing and mean another,
total opposite of what we say!

This Psalm you all can recite it:
It consist of 6 verses
I am writting it as it is in the New Century Version .

Psalm 23
The Lord the Shepherd
1. The LORD is my Shepherd:
I have everything I need. (this does not mean X-Boxes,Wii or Vacation pkg. etc)
2. He lets me rest in green pastures,
He leads me to calm water.
3. He gives me new strength.
He leads me on paths that are right
for the good of his name.
4. Even if I walk through a very dark valley,
I WILL NOT be afraid,
because YOU are with me.
YOUR rod and your shepherd's staff comfort me
5. YOU prepare a meal for me
in front of my enemies.
You pour oil of blessing on my head;
You fill my cup to overflowing.
6. Surely Your goodness and love will be with me
all my life,
and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.

It is Your house LORD
that I want to Live in .

A Third Day in Feburary

Well the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday,YAY!
I just need a day to plant those bulbs that I did not get planted this past fall. I will get it done on a warmer day.

I woke today with a headache; who knows the cause of such discomfort.
Perhaps it was the junk food I ate last night after work after 9 pm.
Wendy cheeseburger,chex mix, walnuts and 1/3 of a Hersey bar and a soda.
All junk except for the walnuts. Perhaps it was a little bit of a cold room,perhaps the changing climate.
I also had another crazy dream. It stemmed I am sure from the fact of a need to help Jeff though "what to do regarding the 1500 dollar debt with CUD. This actually being no fault of their own. Mike says Murfreesboro and Smyrna both would write that off. He should know he works for Smyrna. With CUD being private he not so sure. Though the person over CUD is related to us. My mom is his great aunt, so I would be his second cousin and Jeff would be third cousins (if that the way you call kinship)
I hope he has mercy on him and I hope we can see him today.

Several days ago I had a nightmare. This involved my 2 great nieces. I was at the side of a steep hill and needing to get to a path that was higher I chose to use the trees that was on the side of the hill to travel from one point to the other. I reached the point on not being able to go anywhere.I was high in a tree and looking down I would see my nieces playing near a lake. There was a small alligator in the water and he appear to know they where on the land near by. The alligator swam fast to the shore and seeing this not able to get down I think i may have been yelling at them and they started running up the hill ,but he alligator grabbed the younger and ran up her trouser leg and she fell and rolled down the hill I think into the water ,I can't remember what happen ;I think the older one was trying to help but scared. I just woke up from all the fright. ---- Mercy what a crazy dream. Scared me bad. Maybe it it's the chocolate I have eaten before bed. I should not eat chocolate before I go to bed.
So today I am needed.
Jeff need someone to help him .
Anna wants to go Spring shopping.
Abby (white dog) needs a bath.
Mike needs a good meal cooked.
the hospital wanted me to work
(that would make 4 in a row(12hr--NO WAY without a deal-
like cutting out a shift-which was not mentioned)

I think I need some oatmeal
and the dogs need feeding.
Belle need to come in and get warm.(Chihuahua)

First day of second month 2009

A beautiful Sunday.
I learned that Fred Kittrell die this past week.
He was a Christian college mentor when I was in college.
A dear man. I miss him but will always remember him.
He had much love for the youth.

It is suppose to be winter tomorrow. so enjoy today.
I saw Nyla today,and gave her the calendar I bought her,
she liked it. I love Lucy calendar.

I work tomorrow and I suppose on Tuesday I will go
with Jeff and try to see if CUD is going to decrease the
Amount of water leak $1500 to a sizable decrease.
I would hope that the person over it will have mercy
and erase that bill since it was not water used. It is
very hard to believe that the meter had been read monthly.
They probably skip a month or two. You would think that his
yard would have been flooded with that amt of water.

have a sunny day tomorrow I certainly hope so.

THe President's First day at work.

It is noteworthy that the President and First Lady
attended service early this am.
I am Proud to have voted for him.
I believe he has revived the American people ,
not just the ones of color.
I got to watch bits and pieces of yesterday's
events. I am impressed with President Obama
and his family. He is a very smart man. I am excited
and anxious to see what the days bring.

One thing that I did not get to view was the closing
prayer.I did on You Tube the comment at the end of people
of brown be around, yellow skin be mellow, red get a head
and the white embrace right. This does not offend me
because actually they have.
They help elect OUR President.

But not all white embrace right,
not all black,brown, red or yellow embrace right.
People that embrace right know they have.

One thing in well all do is use rhyme
when applying telemetry leads,
the white dot is place on the right,
why? "white is right",it rhymes.

congrads to Our New Family in Office.

THe Wheels Keep turning !

Well as you can see the days are moving into longer daylight minutes,WHOOPEE!!!
who doesn't like that.

People that keep their binds shut all day I suppose.

Groundhog day has always been fun!
Everyone is watching that silly little thing to see if he decides if Spring is coming early or not

Well tons of stuff to always do.

, so i better get to work. No sense writing much, since no one reads.

Thursday, January 8, 2009


Posting a day late---

It was Happy 27 th Birthday for Jeff my
first,only and favorite son, on Janurary 7th
We went to Cracker Barrel last night to enjoy a home
cooked meal.( We boxed Jeff up, since he hardly touch it.)
I know what it means to pray without ceasing.
Jeff need prayers of blessing to help him through a
period many people have and many have not gone thru.

I pray GOD will bless him.

A NEW YEAR "2009"

I did make it it see the Old year tick into a New one.
I worked the eve of and met Mike for a late dinner at Ruby Tuesday's,
they were not busy like many of the surrounding restaurants nearby.
I suppose it not as "hip" but the transformation they made over a year ago
definitely change the appearance.
There are just so many restaurants to go to now.
I was glad not to have to have a 20 minute wait, but go right in and be seated.

When we return home I picked up several magazines,cookbook and the remote, determined to remain up to greet the new year and sent text message to my kids.
I really love taking the day off on the first day of the year :)

Now I really need to start the New Year with changes.

So whatever you may wish to change ,good luck, you will probably need some!
