Tuesday July 31..time is flyin

Mercy. July is over already.  At this rate I'll be 70 sooner than I'm ready for it.  November is a freight train heading my way with that number on it.  Jesus, I hope you are fine tuning the place you have prepared for me..heh.  I'd like 10 to 15 more years if you tarry in Your return ok?

I will be cuddling Briley today..hope her mommy washes her face..Briley found mommy's chocolate stash! Good thing she's not a dog huh?

good Monday morning July 30

Ok I've had my coffee..where's that chef with my breakfast??  Swine maid still hasn't made my bed either.  I think I'll have to do it myself.

It Monday, the sun ain't shinin..but I'm alive and I think I heard the devil muttering "oh no..she's up" when my feet hit the floor.

Buyin groceries is my first errand..found a recipe for a summery salad..yeah about a 100 ingredients, but it had a picture of it with recipe so I fell in love.

You all have a good day, you poor working stiffs!!!  Ok, that was mean.  Sorry. (no she's not..she's bragging cuz she is retired.)

I love this dress I'm wearing if only it had longer wing span is not a pretty picture I can tell you!!

Have a great day!!

Saturday July 28, 2012 Olympics

And so I missed the opening ceremony of Olympics..too bad cuz the rest of it is pretty much boring to, soccer, the swimming, diving..let's see what else?  Anyway, you'd know I'm not into sports except baseball if you saw me

Eatin a balogna sandwich on wheat..wishing it was on white bread..yeah..take me back to my strawberry picking days..warm mayo on warm white bread with warm balogna, warm coke and chips w/cookies..remember those days?  We let it all sit on the bus we caught at 5am til lunchtime. Those were the days. Ate more than I picked..haha.

Good's already Good Afternoon!!  It's Friday all you worker bees!!  I bet there's some fun plans afoot.  We're having a long time friend over for pizza and videos.  I just learned Olympics opening ceremonies are tonight..guess we'll miss that.  It's an easy fun day so stress of cleaning nook and cranny as my friend doesn't judge!!  She will see our new kitchen for first time so that'll take her attention off the floor right?  I can hope.  Ok bye.

Thursday July 26, 2012

Yoo Hoo!  Beautiful day!  I will be going to the Audiologist today.  Check out the old ears.  If you suddenly are hearing better than usual..maybe you found my hearing loss?  I've got hearing aids from a few years ago. I hate em, frankly.  It picks up the wrong sounds.  Like one time I put my hand into my garbage disposal cuz the water had been so loud that when I got the sequence wrong and turned off the water first I couldn't hear the quiet hum of the disposal.  A lemon rind started the noise..but by the time I was "in there" to get it out it had been chewed up.  Fortunately, it's a very small opening and my fingers were bunched up as I went thru the hole and the blades missed me..That bolt in the middle did a bad twist on my fingers so I got out of there.  Well you can imagine my shock when I looked at my hand and it was in pain but no cuts...the shock of knowing where it had been was pretty huge.  I call it a senior moment which could have resulted in a new nick name of stumpy fingers or something.  Thank you Lord!!!  But, all this to say..I'm getting my hearing tested.  Have a great day!!

Wednesday July 25, 2012

Hump day.  Middle of the work week.  I love today because it's my granddaughter's birthday.  She's 30.  Yes, 30.  Now is some serious aging when your grandchild turns 30!!  I remember the shock and dismay when my daughter turned 40..and now granddaughter is only 10 yrs away from 40.  I hope I live long enough to celebrate with her!!!  God has blessed me with a wonderful family.  Age, smage.  It doesn't matter really.  Just enjoy life moment by moment, love Jesus, and everything's gonna be alright like the song says  Happy Wednesday!!!

Good Morning!  Grey day out there, but the Son continues to shine within.  Had to actually get dressed up today as I'm joining my friend and her sister for brunch.  Brunch.  What a lovely conjures up visions of orange juice in stemmed glasses, bright yellow fluffy scrambled eggs and all the rest of it under those glorious dome lids, huh?  Yeah.  Actually, we're calling it brunch only because we're not eating until 10:30 am.  But, meeting with friends with steaming plates of food is and always will be one of my favorite things to do!  Just wish it didn't cost so much and make me fat.  Haha.  Have a great day!!

a lost soul

James holmes..we see him in the court room.  He looks, to me, like a lost soul in need of redemption.  I know many hate him and I possibly would had my family member been his victim, but to look at him I see someone lost.  He did plan, he bought his weapons...can an insane person do that? Is he sane?  God only knows at this point.

Monday July 23, 2012

Hey good morning!  It's a new day, a new week, a new chance to get some things right.  Forgetting what lies behind, but pressing forward to what lies ahead.  God will be there with the grace and mercy to handle whatever comes.  Cling to Him!!  This is an unpredictable world and we need the faithfulness and consistancy of Jesus!!  Have a blessed week ahead!

Beautiful day.  Went for a walk then to Lowe's..Bob's toy store.  He's making our yard look so nice.  I see love when he mows past the front window, or hammering a hanging plant holder in the ground.  I may not hear mushy talk, but I get to see his love in action.  Better than empty words, right?  Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I'm retired so days merge for me.  I know it's the weekend cuz my husband is home..when he retires I'll really be confused..but Sundays will always be noticed cuz I'll be in church.

Friday July 20, 2012

Tragic event in Aurora, Colorado.  A man entered a movie theater during the midnight showing of the new Batman move and opened fire on everyone.  12 dead, 50 injured..adults, kids, babies.  All under fire.  This is unbelievable.  I'm wondering how those weapons got into the theater.  What lies in the dark recesses of the mind of this killer, a young, good looking former pre-med student, to make him want as many dead as possible?  I'm glad he did not kill himself, so we can find out why he was harboring such hatred for his fellow man.  Free will.  God gives us that.  That man chose evil.  Innocent people are hurt when someone chooses evil over good.  Oh how we need God in this this world.  Help us Lord Jesus.

Ah yes..I get to put my grandma skills to use today.  17 mo old Briley is coming to stay for a few hours. Each time I see her there's changes as she discovers more of this world she was born into.  The sun isn't shining but it's probably warm enough to scoot around outside in a stroller walk.  Play on the deck.  Say "no" a zillion times.  Her life isn't easy..a single mom so she gets shuffled here and there, but is a tough kid. I like to show her stuff about God and His love for her.  I like that scene in the movie "The Help" when the maid tells the child in her charge "you is smart", "you is beautiful", "you is loved".  That's the main thing..just love on em!

wednesday July 18, 2012

Good morning. Wednesday.  The middle of the week..never much cared for that when I worked.  Now as a retiree the days merge.  Once my husband retires I'll probably never know what day it is except on Sunday when marching off to church after eating waffles.  May you hear God tell you "This is the way..walk ye in it".

Dear fellow do you come up with ideas on what to blog? I refuse to cook my way thru Julia Childs cookbook, so that won't work.  Do they have to be long ?  Or can they be a couple sentances?  I'd love to hear your ideas
