School Starts Tomorrow!

Where has the summer went to!?  I cannot believe that my three babies start to school tomorrow!  Hollie will be a 6th grader, Jacob a 4th grader, and Sarah will start Kindergarten!  Oh, how I will miss these babies coming to the pool and having such fun times with their friends playing all day and having fun!  My prayers are for all of the children starting school and that God will watch over them and keep them safe.

This Storm Has Hit Us Hard!

We were without power for 3 days with over 100 degree temps.  Some of our neighboring towns still have no electricity.  Please pray for them and now another storm is on its way with high winds and lightning.

I Love My Garden Goodies

Look what I'm having for supper today!  Good ole lettuce and onions "killed" in bacon grease!  I know, I know, not good for the heart, but oh so good on the taste buds!

I love my salad spinner for all of my salads that I make!  Really does a good job!  I bought mine at "Marshalls", one of my fave places to shop.

My Heart Is Broken

My brother in love, Ralph, suffered a massive heart attack and passed from this life on March 15th.  Oh, how I miss him, but nothing compared to what my sister, his wife, is dealing with.   I never thought of my Ralphie as a brother in law, he was always my brother.  My sister, Sue, married him when I was 10 years old and we were so close.  I have lost one of my very best friends in the world.  My heart is so heavy tonight.  Please, please, pray for my sister and our family for God to give us comfort.

Prayers For All Of the Families Hit By Tornadoes

Oh, how my heart breaks for the families who have lost their family members and homes due to this terrible tornado.  We need to keep them all in our prayers daily.  If we live near by, I pray that you will do all that you can to help, if you don't live near, please donate to the Red Cross.   Blessings to all and I pray that you are safe.


 I decided that I would
make my own laundry detergent to try and save some money. I did, and I love it!! Smells so good and it took no time to make it.

*You can also use Ivory, Castile, Zote or another bar soap.
3 bars Fels Naptha Bar Soap
4 lbs. Borax
4 lbs. Arm & Hammer Washing Soda
4 lbs. Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
Mix and store in airtight container.
1 to 2 tablespoons per load.
I made the laundry detergent in my laundry room!
REMEMBER it makes NO SUDS but cleans so good!

Oh, My Dear Daughter, Where Did You Go?

Where did you go?
When you were a baby, just sitting up
you would grin and your eyes light up
the blanket would pull
up over your head
where did you go?

Peek a boo!
and there you were
not far from me
you were all of my world.

When you were two
and fast on your feet...... running away,
giggling inside
looking for me from your place to hide
where did you go?

There you were under the bed
clutching your blanket-
reaching to me
do it again! and so we did.

When you were ten
and riding your bike,
big enough now -
I watched you disappear around the corner...
where did you go?

Soon you came with
pride on your face,
yet glad to be home.

Independence grew
and so did you,
friends and activities
sometimes your place at the table was empty.
where did you go?

You returned home
my worry ceased
your smile at ease
and my heart at peace.

Then you grew up-
and walked out the door,
on your own now
less often around
where did you go?

I don't know your day
I don't know your friends
I don't see your smile at
every day's end
where did you go?

I find myself wishing for
peek a boo and tag.

Oh, how I miss my daughter being home and young!  But, I do have my grandchildren!  Thank you, God, for all three of them.

Sarah's Drawing

This is my grandaughter's artistic work ( in her own words).   "A little girl with snot running down her nose!"   LOL  Sarah is so funny, she keeps us all smiling. 


This is near my house today.  There is a snow advisory for our area tonight.  Please pray that we don't have power outages!!   Beautiful, isn't it?


This is my daughter's German Shepherd puppy, Spencer, playing in the snow!  He's adorable and just a big baby doll!

Joyful Noise

Poster of Joyful Noise
My hubby, grandaughter, and I went to see this tonight and it is a great movie!  Dolly is my role model, I want to be and look just like her when I get 70.  Of course, I need lots of nips and tucks, blonde wigs, red lipstick, red nails andddddddddd her money!!  LOL   The music is great and makes you want to get up and move and clap during the movie.  I loved it!!

This is The Moon Out Tonight

A lunar halo is a optical phenomenon that occurs when the moon's light is refracted by tiny ice crystals found in thin, high-altitude clouds.  Isn't it beautiful!!

So Proud of My Mountaineers!

We won!  Such an exciting game, I couldn't take my eyes away from the TV.  I am so proud of our team!  I found this poem and wanted to share it with all of you.  Enjoy!
Twas the night of the Orange Bowl and throughout the nation
We were the underdogs on every TV and Radio Station
ESPN said we couldn't win,
Clemson would destroy us in the end
Said our guys weren't so great,
... but one didn't know West Virginia was a state ...
The fans were nestled all snug in the stands
Clapping along with the Mountaineer band
With ma in he...r jammies and I in my WVU cap
We settled in for the game, a bowl of chips in my lap
When out on the field there arose such a clatter
I turned up the sound to see what was the matter
Touchdown after Touchdown after Touchdown they scored
10 in all for a 70 score
The QB in charge was so lively and quick
I knew in a moment it was Geno Smith
More rapid than eagles his passes they came,
Then he pointed and scrambled and call them by name
Now Austin! Now Bailey! Now Buie and Alston!
On Cook! On Brown! On Milhouse and Irvin!
Tightrope the side lines and reach for that score,
We make history tonight, no ones done it before!
The coach praised his players, the fans stayed for hours,
Dana still wet from his Gatorade shower.
He turned with a jerk, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, as he strode out of sight,
"The couches are burning in Mo-town tonight!"
