I didn’t mean to wait so long in between posts……there’s no one answer, just too many different things going on at once. I’ll see if I can do a quick review instead of the whiny, boring long version.
* We had company to get ready for…the girls came home for the weekend with families and [...]

I seem to be going long between posts now and I’m not sure what all I’ve been doing with my time! We did have a gathering at my house recently so I spent some time getting ready for that plus a few other tasks that needed to be taken care of. [...]

A few days ago I took my car to a dealership in a neighboring town to have a recall thing fixed on it….the heated windshield washer part needed replacing. Here in the deep south it’s very important to have a heated windshield washer! But I’m ready now should we need it; [...]

We got a new fridge about a month or two ago; my old one was almost 20 years old, yikes! The ice dispenser finally quit working and that helped speed the buying process along. Gotta have ice, right! This one is a little fancy schmancy with some fun features that I’m [...]

“drums keep pounding rhythm to the brain”
Maybe today is the day that things will get back into some sort of routine again! No more short weeks, family and friends have come and gone and hubby has gone back to work today after being off for a few weeks. He [...]

We’re having lots of family at our house for Thanksgiving this year so I thought it might be good to cook some things now for the freezer. I don’t want to spend all next week cooking when I could be visiting or playing with kids! I’ve gotten a couple of things [...]

I’ve been fortunate to have Liz around here helping me clean out closets, attics, etc. We’ve tossed quite a bit of stuff, carted some off to give away and still have some rooms to go yet. It’s sort of random but the place I’ve finished first is my bathroom closet. The [...]

Lots of things are moving and shaking around here!
1. I’m trying to make a real effort to get some things cleaned out of my house….I’ve put it off for way too many years. So I’m taking advantage of Liz being around because sometimes it’s easier if someone else tells me what to [...]

“someone’s in the kitchen, I know”
Earlier this week I asked my daughter Elizabeth if there was anything different she might want to eat for a night or two since hubby wouldn’t be here for dinner. I’m not very motivated at the moment to come up with new things! She thought about it [...]

A few weeks ago I ordered a new slow cooker, got it in and the lid had a small dent in it. Several of you commented that I should definitely do something about it. I did finally email the company to see if I could get a new lid…a nice lady [...]

We had a good time with Katelyn but she’s gone home now and we’re trying to get back into a routine here! She’s very active, always on the go or wants to play and I’ve forgotten how to manage toddlers and housework. Just let some of it slide and [...]

A few years ago I was lucky enough to get a new washer and dryer but not just any kind, the fancy front loading high efficiency kind! Overall I’ve been pretty pleased with it….it holds a lot, seems to wash way better than my old machine and uses less water I [...]

I wasn’t familiar with the line from a country song I’m using today but sorta liked it! Stacy will probably know it since it’s more in one of her genres of music. A list is what I need today…..
1. Need to put sheets on the beds upstairs so Katelyn [...]

“with a big black horse and a Cherry tree”
1. I’ve not gotten back to walking regularly since my achilles tendon injury and I’m tired of feeling sluggish. I think I’m going to try to ease back into it gradually with lots of stretching, maybe some new shoes, and see what happens. [...]

Especially in a small town! There is no recycling here at all, nothing curbside and no where to take papers or bottles and such. It’s hard to find ways to do things that might help out. We’ll never be featured for our innovative programs! When [...]
