A New Decade

Yesterday, was a turning point in my life.  I moved from the 60's to the 70's and now I'm really on the downhill slide.  They say one foot in the grave and the other sliding.  How many times have I said that to someone who was older than me?  Now the shoe fits and it don't feel a damn bit good.  I guess I'll try and go out gracefully, but I know that won't be the case with me.  I'll be fighting it tooth and claw and hating every moment I loose ground.

Day After

I'm sure all who celebrate Thanksgiving were full of good food, yesterday.  They either made it, went to a cafe, shelter, or family get together to enjoy the feast.  I for one was the cooker, and then when I ate, I made a glutton of myself and was miserable the rest of the day.  I really didn't want anymore to eat the rest of the day even though there was pumpkin pie, made fresh the day before.
Today, I have had a turkey sandwich and plan on a good meal, later this evening.  Thank God I'm not crazy enough to be out there fighting with the idiots who are looking for good deals this "Black Friday".  I'll just take the easy way out when shopping for Christmas this year.  It's the same as several years before, since I've been online with internet help.  Gift cards are much easier to get and the person receiving them, can get what they want.  If they return their gifts then it's their own faults.

Here's a few pictures of our family dinner, and the most important thing of the day.......the food......







My son Barney and me

does that picture look crooked to you?

A Child

And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them, Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.
Mark 9:35-37

Same Sex?

There are so many things happening with the world today. There are so many disputes about this law and I wonder when they will ever get a common ground. A law to allow same-sex marriage in New York is hung up in the state Senate. It could come to a vote before the end of the year. One judge warned that failing to look at the larger question of same-sex marriages will create a larger problem. 
New York's top court on rejected a Christian legal group's challenge to government benefits given to same-sex couples legally married elsewhere. But the court avoided deciding that same-sex couples are entitled to all the rights of other married couples.

Little Girls

How often do you think about little girls and the way they play and act? Have you noticed how they take on the atmosphere, of their surroundings? Some play with their dolls, and enjoy the frilly way of life. Nowadays, that life is slowly creeping into the background and a very different type of girl is emerging. Society and the high tech world has completely rearranged our way of thinking, when it comes to raising our little girls. Take time to stop and notice it. It's happening and the little girl, of yore is almost gone.

Mark 9:35-37

Mothers Rings

I have a mother's ring, which was designed by me and paid for by my oldest son.  It was a Mother's Day gift from him several years ago.  It was very special to me back then and today, I'm sure that if children would  buy mothers rings and give them to their Mom's, it would be just as special.  A gift to Mom for Christmas will last for years to come.  Check the website listed in the link above for information and prices.

Yesterday

We got together for Thanksgiving at my sister's home.......since it turned off cold, she decided that she wanted a fire.......my step-dad and Mom came.  I was glad my sister offered to cook this year, it seems that I've been doing that for many years........glad she took the helm.  None of my kids were able to make it out, because of one thing or the other.
All of that was yesterday..........or so it seems.  Mom, and Henry are now gone and we don't get together anymore.  It's just one of those things that happens when families drift apart.

Old Photos

I got a call from my sister this morning, and was able to catch it.  My phone hasn't been doing what it's supposed to, so I was surprised to see her call coming through.
Anyway, she had found some old pictures of family that's no longer with us.  She was in the vicinity and was going to drop them off.  Told her I was here to come on by, that I'd be around.  It was good to see her, since I've been stuck in the house for awhile.  She had a new car again, which adds to the other's she's managed to get in the last few years.
As for the old pic's, I'll try to get some copies made and put them on here randomly.  Keep an eye out for these articles, coming in the near future........

His Birthday

On the 24th my youngest son, had another birthday........41, seems to be awful young to me, since I'm his mother.  He's got alot of learning to do, even at this age.  It is my hope that his experiences will help him maintain his future in a productive manner.
Happy birthday son, and may you have many more, with happiness.

GOD MADE MOTHERS..........

God knew the world needed tenderness, a touch of beauty, and a testimony of love;
He understood the need for mercy, for meekness, and a model for faith;
He saw the importance, of encouragement, of experience, of warm embraces....So He made mothers.....

Band Instruments?

It's that time of the year when parents are busy going to football games, played by their children.  The bands which play at the games need instruments to produce the rousing approach spirit the players on the field.  Fight songs are played and even halftime has it's credits with plenty of music.  There are  More  instruments other than marching band instruments to consider when investing in your choice to play.  Mine was a clarinet, back when I was in the high school marching band.  What is your choice of instruments to play?

RIP Robin

Hollywood, will feel the loss for years to come with the death of "Robin Williams".  His funny witt and antics keep audience's rolling in their seats.  It's hard to realize that the demons which attack the sanity of some people are real and they suffer horribly.  It's sad to see this happen to someone who gave so much to others.  Maybe now he can rest in peace.  Here's to you Mork, na no, na no!

The Soldier

 You call your girlfriend and set a date for tonight.
 
He waits for the mail to see if there is a  letter from home.  
 
 
You hug and kiss your girlfriend, like you do everyday.
 
He holds his letter close and smells his love's perfume.
 
 
You roll your eyes as a baby  cries.
 
He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they'll ever  meet.
  


This was sent to me in an email, which I'm passing along to my reader's........source unknown.

Dance

Two left feet describes many people, who wish for more.  They can be living anywhere and still will need the help of a dance teacher.  The people in this area can sign up  for private dance lessons in santa monica  and get on the road to dancing success.  Why wait any longer and be standing there like a wall flower, when you can have the fun you deserve?

Emotional Moments


 For one family it was a sad but rewarding moment, and for a female graduate, it was a wonderful surprise.  Two different situations during a college graduation ceremony which each one involved will remember for years to come.

Bags

It's always a convenience to have a few cinch bags to grab in a hurry.  Your own the way out the door to some meeting or appointment and need to grab a few things to take with you.  Just in case there's nothing to munch on in the area or maybe a book to read.  I'm sure you can keep some on hand because they are really cheap.  Click on the link  who has the best custom cinch bags  and do some shopping.  You'll have loads of fun.

Wow, She Lost It

For the second night in a row, my oldest daughter and I ended up on the online "poker" game.  This night was different from the one before.  She was racking up the points while I sat here floundering at the hands of some un sportsman like men.  Being that I was trying to enjoy myself and just play the game, this jerk kept bidding ultra high to throw off people who didn't know what he was doing and get all their accrued points and fast!  She saw and was able to catch his wind with a few of the same on her own.  This gave her the edge on him and he caught her off guard once again.  She made a statement after the next hand, which she won and it pissed him off.  He went so far as too curse her on the chatroom the left in a rush.  I kept quiet, but realized she was trying to defend me and call him down at the same time.  It was funny and yet alittle weird.

Relax

 Those of your living in the Chicago areas, can find a relaxing time while having a soothing  massage in chicago .  I know there are many of you there who try to indulge in this fine pleasure often.  Trying to find a good spa which treats you to different goodies, is hard in certain areas.  This is a good time to check out the website under the link in this post.

Still Got It!

Last evening while I was on a social network, my daughter found me.  I was playing "poker" online and she entered the room.  While we played she considered that I was a "push over" and she would show Mom how to play.  It's funny how you look back in time and remember things that happened as they were growing up.  Yep, once again I beat her butt......this time in "poker"  ")

I Did

I did a bad thing this weekend, when I wouldn't go into work.  I wanted to get some respect from my boss, since she always, finds a way to call me in at the last minute.  I know I should be glad that she calls me in to work and gives me that chance to make some cash.  Yet, when you call someone at 10pm at night and ask if they will work, I'd say it should be a good reason.  See, this isn't the first time she's done this and I had to re arrange my weekend plans.  Not funny!

Summer Play Time

It's time to update that old playground set in the yard.  Spring is here and summer is just around the corner.  The  custom swing sets in richmond  will be a perfect place for my grand son to shop for the best swing set my grand daughter's can play on.  They will have the time of their lives playing on one of those sets and being outdoors.  Most small children love being outside and seeing things move. It's great to watch their eyes light up when they can go outside to play.

Not Again

It seems as though my life is always full of people who just don't stay around very long.  Meeting a person who you find full of the things that you want to be around and then them leaving you after you get accustomed to having them around is hard to deal with. 
Yesterday, we found out that my partner of 1 year, may have throat cancer.  His blood pressure is high and the doctor raised the level of his meds for that during the same visit.  COPD is also a factor of this health problem which he developed recently.  I have no choice but to stand with him during this awful time.  At the present he is feeling the effects of finding out and accepting what is.  I can't be anything but close by to support him, when he needs me.  Loosing someone so soon in the relationship is not going to be a good thing.  I hope he can beat this problem and be healthy so we can be together for a long time.

For the Babies........























I like to crochet for new babies of the family and friends, it's my gift to them when they have their baby showers. I find out what gender their having(boy or girl) and make a blanket for it.  All the patterns are my own making. I don't read patterns, unless I really want something I see. My grandmother taught me how to do crochet without a book. My mother can crochet with patterns from the books.  I haven't mastered that feat as yet.

My Man

Sat for 3 hours in the ER last night with my man, to make sure he would be ok.  He had high BP and was sick to his stomach after they gave him some meds.  It took several minutes for his BP to come down, and during that time, he was throwing up all that was in his stomach.  They had to give him something for the nausea as well. 
Now, I wonder if the BP meds will cause him to have problems with our private times as a couple?  Right now we are just trying to get his body accustomed to the meds and his stomach settled.

Cat Fight!

I wonder just how she thinks that I can see what she's doing?  Every time, I try to catch her getting down with another cat, they go behind something or stop because they know I'm there.  Darn it, I would like to catch them in a good cat fight just once and be able to take a video of them.  It's hilarious to see which one is going to back down from the other. video

Envelopes

Easy, convenient and right there when you need it, is what  online envelope printing  can give you.  I have a few letters or envelopes that I have to make ready each month.  You know how bill paying can get in the way?  This is much more convenient and I can go online, put my return address and the forwarding address in the boxes, then put the envelope in the printer and there you have it.

Ooops!

Insurance

I accessed  the link for the website involved in this post and found it to be an advertising online store for insurance companies in the NC areas.  The  don allred insurance  is giving you the chance to get a "yelp" package, for your business, with the purchase of insurance with their firm.  It will be necessary for you to do some research into this company to see if it fits your company's need for the insurance they offer.

Green!

Hey, don't forget to wear your "green" tomorrow, it's necessary to keep from getting pinched.  You know what I mean?  Celebrate with some good food and Irish beer.

My Eye

I just can't seem to get things right when it comes to my health. I took 2/500mg antihistamines last Sat. when I had a head full of sinus.  I was in a hurry to get ready for work at my part time job.  I grabbed 2 pills out of the bottle and took them in hopes of being better once I drove in to work.  During the drive my BP shot up and I popped a blood vessel in my right eye.  Talking about the fear of God!  When I got to work, I casually looked in a mirror to see if I was looking decent.  That's when I saw the blood under the membrane in my right eye.  Realizing that I felt a bit unsteady and woozy, I went and sat down for a few minutes.  Still feeling that way an hour later, I took off work and went to the ER at a local hospital.  They reminded my of my age and how the vessels get thinner with age.  Certain meds were recommended and I was released.  Well, I purchased these meds and they are not doing a real good job of handling my allergies.  I still catch myself with sneezing, headaches and runny nose.  So, I guess that since the eye is involved, I will need to have my BP checked and possibly get on meds for that?  I still feel unsteady and that's not a good feeling.  I also feel my pulse beating much harder that it once did, which I'm sure will be because of age.  Damn it!  Getting old sucks, but it's better than the alternative. :(

Grand Children


This is my oldest grandson and his two children.  Trey, Natali, and Emberlynn Cavender.

Jeff & Caroline


This is my second son, Jeff and his daughter Caroline.  She turned 14 in January of this year.

What Did You Get?

Well, it was better than I expected.  At least he got the silk rose for me on his own without me having to say anything.  I wasn't expecting anything, since he has built the reputation of not thinking that days like that are special.  So, it was nice to find that his idea's were starting to change a bit.  That helped the Valentines's feeling for the evening, but that was all there was.  No romantic times were had.  Damn it!

Winter

Judging by the new articles, I found that the eastern states are under a blanket of snow.  More is predicted to come and I'm sure there are many who have come down with an illness due to the extreme weather.  NC, is one of the states to be involved in the winter storms' onslaught.  I'm sure that they can find a way to get  my nc health insurance quotes  by clicking on the link in this post.  They can shop for the best quotes according to their needs.

1 Year

It's been one year today, since I met my man.  It was on a Sunday evening, so actually the day involved would have been yesterday.  But since today is the 10th it is the date we met last year.  I know that he will be tired when he gets home, and not feel like doing anything.  To top it all off he's had a bad cold the last few days.  That takes away from the fun as well.  I guess I should have taken my queue from his earlier actions regarding holiday's and their importance to him.  Today, will be like any other to him and I might as well accept it.  Sad though!

It Snowed

Here you see the full effect of the snow we had two days ago.  Yesterday, the weather temps warmed up enough for some of it to melt.  As of this morning we are looking at the ground once again with snow still in the driveways and such.  Temps today, should get rid of most of the snow and give us some relief from the cold.

Now There are Two

Two young ladies are now a part of our family.  One was born two years ago and the other on the 13th of this month.  These two little girls are blood great grand daughters, from my grandson.  I have two other great grand children, who are not blood but their father was adopted by my son.  I'm not looking forward to this Great Grandmother thing, but then I lived this long and can't gripe about that.  I suppose this is the way I live on even after I'm gone.  Hopefully, I can find a way to see through their eyes, then.

Be Sensible

Official advice about how to dress in such extreme cold weather,  is listed from the National Weather Service:
• Make sure to wear layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing. Trapped air between the layers will insulate you.
• The outer garments should be tightly woven, water repellent, and hooded.
• Make sure to wear a hat, because 40 percent of your body heat can be lost from your head.
• Also cover your mouth to protect your lungs from extreme cold.
• Wear mittens, that are snug at the wrist, they are better than gloves.
•  Most of all, try to stay dry and out of the wind.
