In the mirror

Had a great time with myself in the bathroom.  Taking pictures in the mirror.  Tryin to smile and eventually laughing really hard..talked to Jesus about it and He was laughing, too I think.  He wants us to enjoy life right?  Anyway here's the final product for today's session..I've never used a flash til now... so it has added some more "air brushing..hahaha"  I'm a crazy dame that's for sure, but you know what?  I like me.  God loves me.  That's all that matters right?

An afternoon at EZ Orchards

Good morning, good morning!!  Grey skies frowning at me now..nothing but grey skies do I la.  It's ok tho, right?  God is still good.

Had a day recently at a local produce/play/park with a couple of grandkids, Mia and Briley with their mom, Hollee.  Here's a few pictures of our fun time!!!

Doesn't this look yummy

I discovered this awesome's made with spring mix greens, peaches and strawberries with a good quality poppyseed dressing.  Peaches have been in season here..I wouldn't use canned.

How is your weekend going?  Bob is painting a truck and it's been a nightmare project cuz he is in over his head...not sure the grief is worth the savings of having hired it done.

We went to Oktoberfest last night.  Fun time just walking around eating eating eating.  I had a CarbFest.  Started out with french fries with cheese and chives.  Then potato pancakes with sour cream and applesauce.  Rounded the evening out with apple fritters.  Yeah..bad huh!!!  Sure was yummy tho.  Saw a purse I wanted but the big bopper didn't pick up my hints so I let it goooooo.

Hello grey

Hello grey day.  Nice to have you back, actually.  I don't do heat well, so love it when it cools down, but isn't pouring or blowing.  I know some dread it cuz they have to stop working on their tans.  I miss those days of wearing a two piece bathing suit, laying on my patio lathered up in baby oil with a breezebox fan in the doorway keeping me cool while I sauteed in the sun.  But, now I wish I hadn't.  It does wrinkle you, ladies.  Not to mention a higher risk of skin cancer as it's accumulative.  But, I looked pretty hot back then I must say.

Monday.  I do love Mondays.  I haven't figured out why.  I know I have to get dressed eventually as Monday is grocery shop day..and you know how I love food!!!  worth clamping on the old vice grip aka bra.  Maybe some makeup in case I run into an old flame in the produce section...haha.

I'm happy today.  Called Keurig Coffee company and they're sending me a new free replacement part..cartwheel!!  It was an easy call except for that part about hearing every word she said and making her repeat herself.  She was very gracious..wonder what country she was from.  Wink.

My School Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

Today is the first day of school for many. Lord first I ask you to bind satan from putting evil thoughts into the kids' minds to take out their frustrations by bullying other kids.  I know there are unhappy homes represented in all the schools and that kids see violence on TV, in their homes, video games they are numb to its consequences and want others to suffer.  I ask for protection of their minds and actions.
The innocent ones who are frightened of school..please put your hand of love and grace on them.  Ease their fears, comfort them and let them know You have their back.  If they know You as their Savior, remind them to pray when something isn't going well.
I lift all the teachers up to you and ask in Jesus Name that they use your wisdom in all they say and do.  Let their influence be good.  I ask you to help the kids be obedient and cooperative so the teacher's job is easier.  They may not allow prayer in school, Lord, but the godly kids have great power to be You in the classrooms, in the halls, in the lunch room and on the playground.  Protect our children I pray.  Thank you and praise you Jesus, amen.
