Some days it just seems too hard to come up with a post; and I haven’t posted in so long it looks like that’s most days I guess! Plus, I stay on facebook playing games that seem to suck me in. It’s easier to come up with a line or two [...]

When my kids were little they belonged to something called The Best Book Club Ever; every month we got quite a few of these square paperback books. They loved them getting them and read them often at bedtime. Hubby and I read our fair share of them out loud too. [...]

* Daylight saving time, you are no good to me right now. I don’t like waking up in the dark because it makes me feel like I didn’t sleep long enough! I was able to sleep a little late last week, nice…. and then today it was back to waking up naturally around [...]

In three years of sometimes sporadic blogging I’ve never really had anyone visit my blog by doing some random or odd google search. There’s been just a handful of people that have found me by googling “gail”……nothing unusual there since that would be my name. But a couple of weeks ago [...]

My blog is BACK, and so is my sis’s! Our blogs are kept on their website/server at home and the computer broke down a few weeks ago. Before that, my laptop died right around Christmas so I’ve not been around much lately. My brother in law has [...]

A random list and NO, there won’t be that many things but I can’t get that silly song out of my head!
1. After all the birthdays we had in our family last month, we’ve had two more this week! My oldest son’s birthday was 2 days ago; they live in [...]

How can it be this close to Christmas! It seems like I should have more things done by now. There is a sunday school party at my house tomorrow night, for 25 or so people…..my house so does not look like having people over right now! Cards need to [...]

It has been a busy week here for me….what about for you? Shopping and decorating are on the list now. Hubby got a cast on his arm/wrist and has had it x-rayed again to make sure it’s still in line (it is). It has to stay on at least 3 more weeks; [...]

I have a couple of things to ask and hope I can get some help from my friends!
1. There are some couples that we like to give gifts to as a couple but I always struggle with what to do…….I’ve done food type things and am looking for something else or slightly different. [...]

If it was me, I would be crying because I don’t like critters of any sort! But Katelyn doesn’t seem to mind them, in fact she seems to love playing with them. I’ve not quite understood this interest she has…we’ve dug up worms for her, I’ve seen her chase bugs around [...]

Just a couple of my favorite pictures I took this week….
Oh how I did not need to see my daughter come home with this package last night! She went to Alabama yesterday to meet with her professor about her class/reading for this [...]

We have a wide framed opening between our den and kitchen/breakfast room instead of a door that closes. A few years ago I started putting up colored sticky notes on the side of it to remind myself of things; like a phone call to make or errands to run. I [...]

This weekend our kids/grandkids in Texas sent us some pictures from their Halloween fun! The little ones looked like they had a good time.
There was Jack Sparrow………..savvy?

A pretty Dorothy……there’s no place like home.

And a sweet baby owl!

I wonder if he’s saying…… “Stop blowing holes in my ship!”

I guess you better not mess with Captain [...]

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 [...]

“and the moon sees me”
I liked the moon I saw when I went outside the other night right before dark. I sorta liked the way it peeked in between two trees way off in the distance. You could see it better if I had mad photography skillz and [...]
