Pictures worth sharing in my opinion

29 Oct

20141028_06271420141028_074805This is just the sunrise for this morning and I thought it was beautiful everything had a bit of purple cast to it.

The picture posted above is of my sweetness.  Today was crazy hair and mustache so I drew with makeup a Charlie Chaplin style mustache.  You might want to argue it is a Hitler type mustache as well but, that was not my intent.   I love the  mustache style of Charlie Chaplin and wish it would come back in style but, most folks fear doing it for fear of being ridiculed or worse.

dirt and company love

28 Oct

Well folks I finally got my bulbs planted for next year and it feels good to actually do something constructive and know that you will reap the rewards with pretty flowers next spring or fall.   Plus you cant go wrong with a little bit of playing in the dirt.   I also got this past weekend for $1 a beautiful pretty purple pansy.   I love pansys.  So I transplanted it out into the yard today in 80 degree weather weird and wacky that it is so warm.  Not to fear we will be dropping down again into the upper 50s if I recall correctly.

I also want to say that  I completely love Hipsters for Sisters.  I had ordered a different bag and the snap kept coming undone at the worst possible times.  I had, had the bag for awhile but, emailed them with the issue and they said to go ahead and send it back to be either fixed or replaced and I even got the cost of sending the bag back to them refunded to me.  I gotta say I love the customer service they put service back into a company.  They even fixed it on a Sunday a Sunday when most folks are finding much better things to do with their time.    I absolutely love, love this company for not only their quality products but, the service as well.

Pre Halloween

Fall Break

14 Oct

20141008_122339Here is a picture of my daughter on the grounds of the museum that we went to and about the only sunny and nice day for most of the week.

Now we have to get ready to rumble.  More severe storms headed our way.  Gotta love land based hurricanes.  Or maybe not.  Will let you know if we have severe weather.

Our friends had their baby this weekend a baby boy and I am needing to finish the baby blanket I started for them and need to desperately finish for them.  So congrats to our friends and their new bundle of joy.  I got pictures and he is adorable.  So will be knitting like crazy to hopefully finish it this week.

When Spiders Attack

9 Oct


A few nights ago I woke up to the sound of someone screaming….little did I know it was me.  I apparently had something bite me while I was asleep.  At first I just thought it was a dream and then happened to look down at my arm to see a welt.  I have had allergic reactions to mosquito bites before so assumed that was it.  Last week it just kept getting worse so at the urging of my husband I went to the Doctor.  I personally do everything I can to stay away from doctors concluding in my early 40’s that I have seen them enough thank you very much.  But, I still went and am personally glad that I did because my husband looked up the bite mark and thought it might be a chigger and having been eaten alive by them as a child I have to say the least a very bad reaction to them.  I was prescribed two creams to put on the area one is to help kill any bugs or antibacterial and the other is a steroid that is helping the area to calm down and look normal.

This week my daughter is off for fall break and we spent all day yesterday in our old town.  We saw the movie Dolphin Tale 2 a really great movie and good for kids or  anyone who is tired of Disney, action flicks, or cheesy horror flicks.  We went out to eat lunch, did a few errands, and hung out at Starbucks until my husband was off from work.  Then we barely beat the storms home that dropped tornados around the area.  It was an exciting night and evening as we had to head down to the basement after the siren went off sounding the alarm for a possible tornado.  It was not very fun.

Today is nice and sunny the last day of the week that will have sun.  The rest of the week will have more rain and hopefully less severe weather.  We went to a museum near by for something educational, then off to another small community where we had lunch and then walked the town looking at things in the various shops.  The last time I was there, there was a great pizza place now gone along with a great liquor store to buy wines and other spirits again gone.  It was kind of sad to see.  Then it was off to the park to let my daughter have a bit of fun playing.

Letting go some more and new windows

1 Oct

Yesterday I decided to get rid of a few more of my daughters things that she has not played with in awhile.  I have no issues with baby elmo or any other elmo type doll but, I have to say that I have hated her baby elmo since she got the thing her first or second xmas.  Along with a few other items.

We will hopefully be getting new windows in the house we are currently renting from my father in law.  My daughter needs new windows especially in her room because the outside glass to one of her windows is broken out and I really wince and am worried that she will do something crazy and break out the inside glass.  It really makes me nervous. So I hope we will get all the windows replaced before bad weather hits and hopefully before more damage is done.  I am keeping my fingers crossed.
