Laundry Day!

Do you have a certain day to do laundry?  Or, are you like me and just put a load in when you need to?  I think I could wash every day and theres just two of us!  Where do all of these clothes come from, I think someone comes in at night and fills my laundry basket with them!  Do any of you remember ironing on one of these?  I have one, but don't iron on it, just love it for the looks!

I Love Charlie Brown!

I bought me a little Charlie Brown tree this year and it so reminds me of how when I was little, we would go out in the woods and cut our own tree down.  It wasn't this bare of course, but it wasn't the prettiest tree either!  But, in our eyes it was the best tree ever!  Oh, what memories I have of my precious mom and dad on Christmas day.  I miss them so much.  Merry Christmas in heaven, Mommie and Daddy!

Merry Christmas!

I have had a great 2 days with family and friends!  Lots of laughter, fun and of course food!  I pray that everyone has a blessed Christmas and let us not forget the true meaning of Christmas,  God sent His precious son to us!  Oh, how undeserving I am!  Thank you, Jesus!

A Magical Trip

I just got back from Disney World with my 3 grandchildren and daughter.  We had a great time and loved  seeing all of the Christmas decorations.  Also, Justin Bieber was there taping a show that will be aired on Christmas morning.  My Hollie loved this!  Took lots of pics, walked miles and miles, ate some delicious food, had very little sleep, but had a great time!  Disney World is truly a magical place!  Here is a pic of the castle all lit up for Christmas.

Happy Veteran's Day!

I want to thank all of the men and women who have fought and are fighting now for our country.  To them I owe my freedom!  Words could never express the appreciation that I have for all of them.  God bless them all and their families.

Just returned from TN with my 3 sisters for a sister trip.  We had a great time on my niece, Dawn's houseboat, where we sunned, ate, slept, laughed, fished, and did nothing!   We really needed this and I am so happy that we were able to spend some time together.

My Supper Today

I love garden veggies, don't you!  My supper ( we call it supper in WV) today was cornbread, fresh green beans, fried zucchini, tomatoes and cucumbers.  YUMMY!! 

Sarah is Four

My grandaughter, Sarah, turned four on Saturday and this is her gift from us.  She loves it!  Here she is with her BFF, Tooth Fairy,  (the dog) in her new ride.

My family and I love zucchini bread!  Do you?  I made two batches this morning.  I woke up at 3:00 a.m. and could not go back to sleep, so I finally got up at five and started baking.  I have ate too much of it today, but I love it!  I am going to have to give it away or put it in the freezer so I won't eat all of it.

Fun In The Sun

This is what we have been doing every chance we get!!  We love out on the water, fishing, tubing, and just relaxing.  Our grandbabies love it too.  My dream home would be next to the water where I could just go out and jump on the boat and have some fun.  This is hubby taking us down the lake, see the open pizza box?  That was lunch on the water!  LOL

Happy Father's Day

My dad was and still is my hero.  I love him dearly and miss him so much.  He's been in Heaven now for 13 years and now my mom is with him.  This is a picture of him when he was in the army.  Isn't he a handsome man?  My dad was a wonderful father and provider for all of us.  I love and miss you Daddy.  Happy Father's Day in Heaven.

My New Wash Tub

I just love my new wash tub stand!  Now I need to find one more square tub to fit in it.  I am looking and will eventually find one.  I found this at a flea market a few weeks ago.  Makes me wonder who used this as they  washed and scrubbed their loved one's clothes.  What hard work these women had to do!  We are so spoiled, but I am so grateful for who ever invented the electric washing machine!  Aren't you?  LOL

My Grandbabies!

I am so very proud of these three!  We spent some time together last week on the river at our camper and I took these.

Having Fun!

This is what we have been doing lately!  We just bought a pontoon and love going out on the lake relaxing, fishing, or just having fun!!

Have you tried this?  I have and I love it.  My daughter introduced it to me and now I use it on everything! Now I don't have to carry around too many bottles of cleaner.  Anything to make our jobs easier, right!


My heart is breaking for the parents of two beautiful young ladies in my community.  One is a former student of mine and she was one of the sweetest young ladies I ever met, the other one, I did not know, but have taught her young son and he is a sweetheart.  Rest in peace, girls, you will forever be in our hearts.

I just love tulips!  Don't you?  I have been out in the yard pulling weeds and enjoying spring flowers.  It is only about 60 today, but feels so good to be out in the yard.  The sun is shining and I think that does wonders for a body, we all need vitamin D.  Here is a pic I took out in my yard and it shows some of my tulips that are blooming.  They are purple with a few red in them too.

"Wilderness At The Smokies"

I went with my grandaughter's Girl Scout troop this past weekend to "Wilderness At The Smokies" in Sevierville, TN.  I also took my grandson, Jacob, and we all had a great time.  If you are ever in TN, be sure and look this place up.  The kids had a great time and I did too!



I planted some of these in a window box and in some pots last week.  I think they look like little faces smiling up at you!  Don't you?

I Am in Love!!

In love with these flowers that is!  As I was leaving for work this morning I had to snap a picture of these in my flower bed.  Oh, how my heart leaps with joy as the first blooms show up in my garden.  How is your garden doing?  Any bulbs coming up?
