Back about two and a half weeks ago there was a shooting in an Omaha mall. It was a young, 19 year old guy. How sad that he would take the lives of others including himself. What a selfish act. I feel so bad for the families of the ones who lost their lives in this tragic event.

More Shopping

As I was wrapping gifts I remembered one more person I still had to buy for. So, today I will head out to try and find the perfect gift for her. She is my sister. She's getting harder to buy for because she is one of the fortunate ones who has just about everything she needs or wants. But it's a special time between her and myself when we exchange gifts.

Saturday I heated up some hot chocolate not realizing how much was actually in my cup. My cup had a lid on it. I was talking with my husband and grabbed my cup and took a big gulp. It was scalding hot. I spit it out of my mouth immediately. It went all over the floor. I went over and put my tongue under cold water. It really hurt. Now I have blisters under my tongue on the right side of my mouth. It is so painful. It's like have several canker sores. I will be sure happy when this heals up.

When my husband and I were dating he owned a snowmobile. He would come and pick me up and we would ride that thing from one town to another through the ditches. It was so much fun.

I heard on the news the other day how men over 50 should be going in for regular physicals or checkups and that many don't do this. They are encouraging these men to go and get everything checked out. Women are most generally good about going to the dr. once a year and men should also do the same.


We hear so often about physical abuse happening with younger couples or even middle aged people but we don't hear too often about the elderly living like that. Well, I know of a couple that this has been going on now for two years. We just found out about that today. We also found out that the husband hit his elderly wife 3 times today and got arrested. His wife is such a sweetie and he is just too hot headed. I'm so glad he is away from her because she doesn't deserve that, nobody does.

As I'm making Christmas goodies I should be watching a nice Christmas movie but instead I decided to watch Disturbia. At first I thought because of the title that it would definitely not be a movie I would want to see but it's been really good. It sort of reminds me of the Hitchcock movie Rear Window. They really aren't the same but there are a few similarities. I would recommend this movie to be seen.

Running Late

Here I am posting and I should be getting ready for work. I have about 15 minutes and I need to go get some breakfast and do a couple of other things so I better get off here and get it done.

Sunday, December 9, 2007


Last weekend when we had that ice and snow storm it was dangerous to even walk outside. We have heard of several people falling and breaking their arm or hip. There was even a fatality in Des Moines as he walked out of his office. How sad. I know we sure tried to break up the ice around our place but it wasn't easy. It's starting to get alittle better now.

Friends Moving

Christmas Lights

My husband is out hanging Christmas lights on our house and garage. He does such a nice job. We received a large lighted wreath from our neighbor just before she moved away and it looks so nice on our garage. I can't wait to see it all when it's done.

Christmas Baking

So, I guess I should start to think about doing some Christmas baking. Not really sure what I'm in the mood to bake. I need to get some ingredients and maybe I can do that tomorrow after I get off of work. I really don't mind making the stuff on my days off. Maybe Saturday I could get started. Just what we all around here don't need is a bunch of sweets and goodies but oh well, it is Christmas time.

How sad, we just found out that my husband's cousin from Des Moines was killed after he tried to stop a bar fight. It sounds as though he was hit in the head and the following morning, which was this morning, he died from the injury. The man who killed him was recently released from prison. How horrible. A good Samaritan gets killed. Very sad.

I love to post and it's been making us some nice extra money. It's helped us pay off some bills and it's great for Christmas shopping. I enjoy it too. It's not work to me. I look forward to getting opportunities to post on. It's fun.

Christmas Cards

I began writing a Christmas letter yesterday to put in my cards but didn't get very far. I started with putting some pictures on it and that's as far as I have gotten. I really need to get to it and start sending some out. I'm being lazy about it and I shouldn't be.


Sounds like this coming weekend we are in for a snow storm or at least wintery weather. I'm sure glad I will be home and not have to work. I hope our oldest son makes it home before it hits. Not looking forward to it.

Hitachi 50 LCD

My husband and I have been shopping around for several months looking at LCD televisions. We have been so amazed at how much the prices have been coming down.
The really big televisions like the hitachi 50 LCD are so nice. The picture is very clear and beautiful. Most people will go to a store and buy a TV because they have several questions they like to ask and it's also nice to actually see the TV and picture in person. That is where fits in; its comprehensive product, pricing and location information helps buyers find the exact TV they want at the retailers nearest them, connecting the last mile between a buyer’s online research and offline purchase. Krillion local search results provide the most accurate local shopping results available on the Web for consumers looking for products and where to buy. This website has been helpful in our search for the right TV.

Stomach ache

Last night about 3:30 I woke up with a horrible stomach ache. I ate a few crackers and that seem to help. Then I had to work today and left early cause my stomach started acting up again. I feel ok now so I hope the rest of the day will be better.

Our Thanksgiving day was so nice. It's funny how much time it takes me to prepare all of the food and how quickly it's consumed. It all turned out delicious and it was fun to be together as a family. My only wish would have been that the day would have gone slower. Days just go by too fast.

One Son Home

Our youngest son just got home for Thanksgiving. It's so good to see him cause it's been a couple of weeks since he's been home. I got a call from our oldest son about and hour and a half ago and he was driving through some pretty heavy snow. I'm guessing he will be home with in the hour. It will be fun to be together.

NOD 32

For anyone who uses the Internet at home or in the office it is very important to have a good antivirus software. With NOD32 you will have the best. NOD32 is the world record holder of the popular Virus Bulletin 100% award. They are the leader in the "next generation" of Anti Virus solutions for Home and Home offices.
If you don't have the protection of a reliable antivirus it can destroy your computer and any information on it. Can you imagine all the important business type things that could be lost if a virus took it over? Even at home there are many very important items that I would hate to lose if we got a virus. So, be sure and check out NOD 23 to get the antivirus you can depend on.

I couldn't believe my eyes this morning when I looked out our windows. There was all kinds of snow falling. When I went to work it even came down harder. It was pretty but I'm really not ready for that yet. I guess I'm never really ready for snow.

Mocha Latte

Mocha Latte was the name of our scrapbooking retreat this past weekend. They were constantly making fun flavored types of coffee. They were so yummy and good on a cold day, which Saturday and Sunday were. Their games and challenges were all based on coffee terms, it was comical and fun. I can't wait till I can go to another one of these retreats.

Chicken Hawk

Yesterday when I got home from work I came around the corner and over in my neighbor's yard was a huge chicken hawk. He had killed a large bird and was ready to feast on it. I ran into the house and grabbed my camera. I took several pictures of him. He posed like he wanted me to take his picture. I later went out to see if he was still there and all that was left was a big circle of bird
feathers. That hawk was an awesome sight.

Drizzle and Cold

It has been so dreary today. Most of the day there was this annoying drizzle all the time and it's quite chilly outside. Compared to yesterday when it was sunny and about 65 degrees this day was not good. I think the high only got to about 38. Oh well, after all it is November.

Groceries for Thanksgiving

I went and got my groceries for our Thanksgiving meal. I bought some extra stuff so that we could have lots of leftovers. I also bought different kinds of pop and chocolate milk just to splurge. I'm excited for the day to come.

George Forman Grill

We just had the most delicious hamburgers that were made on a George Foreman grill.
They were just about perfect and they were juicy and not dried out. I'm sure glad I have one but I would like to get one that you can take the grill plates out of it and wash them in soap and water.

Helping Hand

Well, I just get home and I have to leave again but this time it's to give someone a ride to a Dr's. appointment. It's not just a boring ole errand but it's a feel good kind of thing to do. I'm glad I can help this lady out.

Karisma Hotels

The word Karisma is from the Greek, meaning “divine favor.” Karisma Hotels is a collection of divinely favored properties on secluded white-sand beaches on the Mexican Riviera Maya. My husband and I went to the Riviera Maya last May and it's true what they say about how beautiful it is there.
Not only are the surroundings beautiful but so are the Karisma Hotels. They are all inclusive and knowing by experience that is the way to be on vacation. At these hotels they offer great resorts, outstanding service, innovative dining, unique amenities, and, above all, an exceptional vacation experience.

So, loosen that tie, take off the work dress, slip on a linen shirt or a beach blouse. Because, whether you are eloping, looking for a romantic weekend, a luxurious honeymoon, or just a relaxing getaway: You will get it at Karisma Hotels.

Sump Pump

Two years ago we decided that we were going to put a sump pump down in the corner of our basement. We had been getting heavy rains and it was flooding our basement and ruining our carpet down there. So it's been a real blessing having that down there.

Remodeled Kitchen

A few years back we decided we were going to remodel our kitchen and dining room. It was so much work doing it ourselves but we also felt proud of ourselves for our accomplishment. We went to Menards and figured out a layout plan for our new cabinets. We then chose the cabinets we desired and made it work perfectly. I love my kitchen and it was worth all the hard work.


I wear only Nike tennis shoes. I wear them for work and for regular times. I find they are the most comfortable on my feet. I am on my feet for several hours at a time and usually my feet don't hurt or bother me in anyway. They wear well and you can usually find a good sale on them.


Wow, after the busy weekend I am feeling extremely tired today. I have to go to work in about 20 minutes and I'm thinking maybe I should get some coffee. I don't know how much that will help but it can't hurt. I sure hope I snap out of this tired feeling.

Sunday, November 18, 2007


Well, I had such a great time at the scrapbooking retreat. It was fun to hang out with some of my good friends and also get a lot of scrapbooking done. I worked on my youngest son's album the whole weekend. The food was yummy and I have no complaint. I hope I can do this again real soon.

USB MIssile Launcher Toys

I received some really fun samples of cool things that would be great to use at birthday parties. I received them from One item is Color Flames Party Candles for birthday cakes or any occasion. They are in very pretty colors and come with plastic holders. There is 12 in a package and I think they would really brighten up someone's cake.
Another item I received was Insta Snow. Now this stuff is so cool. It was easy cause all you do is add water to it and it looks just like snow. I was telling my husband how fun it would be to add this snow to a Christmas arrangement using lighted cottages and buildings. It is an amazing product.
Then the last thing I want to tell you about is the Smencils Gourmet Scented Pencil. It smells so yummy. The one I have has the aroma of an orange. This would make a great stocking stuffer or a special pencil to send with your child to school.
I have really enjoyed and have had fun with the items I received and I know you would enjoy their products, too. Go and check them out at USB Missile Launcher toy.

In the mornings before I get my day started by working or whatever I try and spend some time having devotions. I have a Joel Osteen devotional and he has such great and encouraging words to start the day out with. The scripture he choose and how he uses them in his devotional is so good. It makes me feel so good to start my day out like that.


Well, I'm about ready to go scrapbooking for the weekend. I will probably see people I haven't seen for awhile which will be fun. I'm tired so I don't know how creative I will be but we will see. Off I go.

Yesterday the wind was so strong. All the corn husks were slammed up against the fences along the roads. It was crazy out there. Most of the trees lost the majority of their leaves. It was pretty bad and really brought in the cold air. It's still somewhat windy today but not near as bad.

Eye Sight

I have a gal that I help clean her apartment and do her laundry. She has been blind in her one eye for a long time and the other one she has been getting injections in and it has really improved her sight in that one. Well, a few weeks back she had her hip replaced and ever since that surgery she has lost almost all of her sight in the good eye. It makes me sad for her but she doesn't seem to let it get her down. I hope her doctor feels there is hope that soon her sight will return again.


Well, I went and got some of my Thanksgiving dinner stuff today. I bought a turkey that's over 14 pounds for the four of us. I hope there is lots of left overs. It's a lot of work to make all that food but it's fun also. It will be nice to have our sons home for that day.

Sirius Radio

I love Sirius Radio. My husband has it in his work truck and it so nice to pull in a good Christian radio station where ever we are at. We have it through our Dish also and I listen to it when I'm getting ready in the mornings or doing house cleaning. It's great!

Mother inlaw

I was talking with my sister in law and she said that when they went to visit my mother in law today she had really failed. She has Alzheimer's and didn't know her or her sister and two brothers. It hurt her a lot to see how much she had failed over the last couple of months. It's a sad sad sickness.

Tuesday, November 13, 2007


In a few days I will be attending a scrapbooking retreat. It's held out at the Bible Camp. It's been a few years since I've been to one so I'm looking forward to it.

Baby Boy

Well, my nephew's wife gave birth to a big baby boy at about 4:30 this morning. She did great and Mom and Emry are doing awesome. He was 9 lbs and 21 inches long. He has lots of dark hair and I'm sure he's a real cutie. Thank the good Lord that all went so well.

Breathalyzer Test

On the news this morning they were going to talk about how people try to beat a Breathalyzer test. A couple of things to try and do that was to put a penny in your mouth or using mouthwash. Sounds ridiculous to me. Just stop drinking and you won't have to worry about it.

It's that time again to go make supper. I think I will just make soup cause I'm not really that hungry. My husband may disagree but he will be fine with soup. Sometimes after working all day I am just too tired to think about cooking anything.

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week. It's coming so fast. I need to make a list of groceries I need to buy for our meal that day. I have to see if I can find a good buy on a turkey. We love all the fixins like pies, cranberry sauce and of course the main meal. It will be a good time and good food.

College Visit

Our youngest son is going for a college visit on Thursday. He and his buddy plan to transfer there after this year at our local college. I would love to go with him but I have to work. He's pretty excited about moving on to a bigger school next year. I'm sure he will enjoy his visit.

LCD tvs

We've been shopping around, wishing and dreaming about owning a new LCD tv. It's fun to see the beautiful pictures as we walk through the stores but it can be rather confusing as to what is the right tv to buy. We've heard so many different comments.
Hopefully the day we do actually buy one we choose the right brand and model.

Elvis Doll

Last weekend at my sister in law's auction we bid on her Elvis doll who is still in the original box from back in the 70s. We got him for a really good deal and found out that he's probably worth twice the money that we paid if not more. So, that's was pretty cool to find out.


We watched a movie on one of our movie channels last night and Tommy Lee Jones was on it. It was pretty good except for the fact that they used the F word way too much. I don't believe that everyday people use that word that much. Maybe I'm being naive but I don't think it's necessary to have that so much in movies. It's awful.

The new Amazing Race started last Sunday. It is a fun show to watch. I don't approve of one of the teams life style and hope they come in last real soon. Other then that I think the teams will make this season's show a lot of fun to watch.

After work today we drove over to Kmart and they had really great buys on Christmas trees. We bought a Martha Stewart Aspen Slim tree. It was about half the cost of the original price. I am very excited because our other tree is so old. This tree will fit perfect in our living room cause it's not very big.

Day Off

I am going to really enjoy my last day off before I go back to work for 3 days in a row. Three days in a row really wouldn't be so bad but it includes the entire weekend so that's why I don't like it. I think I will just take it easy today and not do too much. I will try to not feel guilty about doing that.=)

Dark Chocolate

I am so happy to hear that dark chocolate is really good for you. I know you have to eat it in moderation but that's my favorite. I've also heard that just a little dark chocolate everyday can lower your blood pressure. It's so yummy and pretty good for you, what more could you ask for.

Kid Nation

I'm a big fan of Kid Nation. It's on tonight and I look forward to every Wednesday night that it's on. It's a lot better then I anticipated. It's fun to see how these kids are going to react to making grownup decisions. They are doing really well and I applaud them.

Care Home

My mother in law has alzheimers and over the past year we have had to think about what kind of care she should have. It's a tough subject to talk about and everyone involved wants the best care for her.
There is this wonderful website called that can help answer some questions that we or maybe you have concerning a loved one who needs specific care.

We bought a frozen product that you put into the crock pot and after about 8 hours you get stew. Well, I really don't care for it. The vegetables in it get too soft and the gravy isn't that good. I don't think we will be buying that again. The best part of the meal was that it was easy to make.

Teen Runaways

I was watching a television show today that was talking about someone's daughter who had run away from home and had only been gone about 2 weeks. She was already cornered to be in prostitution and when she said she didn't want to do that the pimp smacked her around. She is only 15 years old and she has endured more then any regular adult would ever in their lifetime. It's so sad that she is so unhappy that she felt she needed to run away and get herself around the wrong people.

Lead Levels

I heard on the news this morning about the lead levels in children. There was one little girl that had her lead levels so high that she was put into the hospital several days to get it down. She was showing now symptoms of this high level of lead. It was so high that she could have had seizures or something bad could have happened to her. It's kind of scary to think that could happen to any child. We have to be so careful.

Teachers are wonderful for our children and they do so much for them. I am very grateful that there are people dedicated to teaching our children. It's really sad when it's becoming more and more common that some teachers are getting sexual involved with their students. I can't understand what is going through their heads. They obviously are not thinking about how this will affect the child as they get older.


I wonder how many timeshare places give vacations away for cheap prices and then the people that go on these don't buy into their property? We will probably never buy a timeshare but we do take advantage of the inexpensive vacations or great gifts they give you just to listen to their 90 minutes presentation. We had received 2 Disney tickets for $25 one time and other free tickets before. They must not lose money on offering those deals or they wouldn't do this.

OJ Simpson

There has been a lot of talk about the book that OJ Simpson has written. It sounds disgusting and many believe it is a confession. How can an innocent man write a book like that with detail of the murders and before it and after it? He's guilty and he just needed to confess it in this way, that's my opinion.

High Winds

Wow, there are some high winds out today. They've had a high wind warning all day in our area. It is so cold outside too. I believe we are going to get a little touch of winter in the next few days. After all it is November in Iowa.

Legalized Marijuana

I heard on the news today that Drew Carey, host of the Price Is Right is campaigning to legalize marijuana for health purposes. I think they would have to have some pretty strict laws to make sure that not just anyone could walk into a Dr's. office and say he's suffering with back pain or some other pain and then get the marijuana.
It could be a problem.

It's a been a tiring long day and I think I need to go relax and get myself prepared for bedtime. The thought of sleep sounds very good right now. I just need to go watch a little tv and that will wind me down quickly. So off I go.

At this auction there was an Elvis doll still in the box. I can't believe it but I got it. It's in pretty good shape and I had to pay $30 for him. I was told by a few that I got it pretty cheap so that made my day. She had other cool dolls but I figured I would just stick with Elvis.


Well, my sister inlaw's auction was today. Oh my, it was so much work getting it set up and then the auction was so long cause there was way too much stuff. I felt bad cause people left and things went dirt cheap. We all wished it would have gone better money wise but then on the other hand we are glad it's over.

Kaelyn Sue is the name of my new niece. She was 7lbs 9 1/2oz. From a couple of pictures I have already seen, she looks adorable. It's so hard to believe that my neice is a mom. Everyone just grows up too fast.

Great Niece

My great niece was born on Friday. Her mommy worked so hard to get her into this world. She pushed for 2 hours and they finally had to take her with a c-section.
Both the mommy and baby are doing fine. Thank you, Jesus.

The Sixth Sense

The Sixth Sense is coming on one our movie channels here in a few minutes and I think I am going to watch it. I've seen it before but I really liked it. It's still light outside so maybe I won't get as scared. We'll see, I may have to change the channel as it starts to get darker out.

New Baby in Family

My niece went to the hospital around 3 am this morning. Her contractions were 4 to 5 minutes apart. If she wouldn't have gone on her own they were going to induce her this morning so it's nice she did go without having that done. I haven't heard anything so I'm assuming the baby hasn't arrived yet.

Grocery Shopping

I went grocery shopping with my youngest son today. We had a lot of fun but spent too much money. We looked through the Halloween stuff that was marked down 50% and I found a costume to wear to where I work for next year. Jesse, my son, helped me get all the accessories together. It was fun and even better I got it a lot cheaper then full price.

New baby

I'm going out this afternoon to visit a friend of mine who had a little boy about a month ago. This is their 11 child. I've seen pictures of him and he looks just like one of his brothers. He's adorable and I'm so happy that Mom and baby are doing well.

It seems lately that all we seem to get done is washing laundry. Our son has been home for a couple of days and of course laundry really increases then. Then our other son comes home every weekend and has a couple of loads so it's a good thing we have a good, reliable washer and dryer.

Music Downloads

I have two sons who love to download music and most of the time they find that there is a cost involved. At there are thousands of songs to choose from that are free. You can download them for your MP3 player or just to have on your computer to enjoy. It's easy and 100% legal!
The music found on EZ-Tracks is brought to you through their partnerships with the record labels that own the rights to their tracks. When songs are downloaded, the appropriate royalties are paid to the artists. Because it is legal there's no risk and no guilt involved. So go ahead and get yourself some music downloads.

Car Repairs

Well, here we go again. Now we have to sink another hunk of money into one of our son's vehicles. I'm getting really tired of this. It seems like things were going pretty well for a couple of months and then this happens. We have a bad part that needs replacing and have to buy 2 new tires. So it's not cheap.

Airplane seats

Well, I got the two flights home finished for when we go to Florida. I got our seats picked out and am very happy where we will be seated. Now we are set and need to start thinking positive and praying for good weather the days we fly out and fly home. It will be so fun to be on a vacation during the winter.

Long Distance Moving Companies

There are times when in our lives we have to relocate because of a new job or maybe we just want to move to a different part of the country because that's where family lives. When planning to move it's important to find good Long Distance Moving Companies. Someone who you can trust with your belongings.

This week is when my niece is expecting to have her first baby. She's been having some contractions so it could be anytime. If she doesn't go by Thursday they will induce her. She and her husband are so excited and I can totally relate. I can't wait to find out if it's a boy or a girl.

Trick or Treat

We had little trick or treaters come to our house last night. They were so cute. We saw Elvis, a fairy princess, some scary characters, too. I miss the days when we use to get our sons dressed up and take them out. That's been many years gone already. It was fun.


I am very hungry and don't have much time before I leave for work. I need to get off of this computer and go find something to eat. Breakfast is not my favorite meal so it's rather hard sometimes to figure out what I'm in the mood for.

Vintage Bulk Candy

Candy is so good and I think about it a lot since Halloween is here. It can get kind of expensive when you want to go buy it at the store and a lot of the times you really don't get much for your money. At you can find so many different kinds of candy. They are the home for vintage bulk candy. You name it, they have it and when you purchase it you can get so much more for your money.
There are a variety of items to choose from like candy bars, gum, novelty candy, mints and king size, just to name a few. has put together a great collection of both popular candy, and hard to find vintage candy at bulk sales prices. You will love seeing all the different kinds of candy that they offer.

Warm Weather

It's actually suppose to be pretty warm today. Up around 70. That's pretty good for the end of October. If I'm not too tired after working I may have to go out for a nice walk and take advantage. We'll see how the day goes.

Baked Potato Bar

I work at an independent living facitity and we serve noon meals everyday. Today we are having a baked potato bar. It's the residents favorite meal. They love to pick and choose what they want to eat. This is my first time working one of these so it should be nice for a change. The food is amazing and I look forward to that, also.

Dirty Jobs

There is a great show on called Dirty Jobs. The host is quite funny and really lives up to doing the dirty jobs. There is one where he visited a pig farm in Iowa. It was hilarious to watch him do those pig chores. He makes it quite comical. There really is no job he won't do and that's what makes it fun to watch.

Baby Shops

I have a niece who is about to have her first child and I'm sure there will be times when she will have questions on different products that she may want to purchase for her baby. What better way to find out what works best for a parent then to get an opinion straight from an experienced mother. At that's exactly what you get. Maybe there is a question on car seats or a stroller that is perfect for twins. This website has over 100,000 real reviews from real moms on the best baby shops, activities and products!

I was visiting with a friend of mine today and she was telling me that she and her family are going to leave their church because they found out that their pastor has been teaching the confirmation kids about evolution. She was hurt by the fact that he does not think God can create to the extent of a human being. She refuses to stay at a church that is not teaching the Bible as it should be taught. I really admire her for taking a stand.


It's really been bad lately all the headaches that I have been enduring. I don't know if it has anything to do with the natural hormone replacement I am on cause it seems as if the headaches have increased since starting it. I may have to see if they can adjust it some. It's no fun dealing with these headaches everyday and today has been a bad one.

Sam's Club

We are members at Sam's Club. We try and go to one if they are in a city where we are visiting. They have so many cool things to look at. There's a variety of items like clothing, tvs, computers, and groceries. It's a big place with good prices.


I am getting so tired. It's been a long day and I think I need to go to bed. My head is hurting and I feel kind of sick. I haven't even eaten supper and that's probably not helping. Maybe I need to take a break and do more tomorrow.

Whirlpool Refrigerators

Summer time is the greatest time for refrigerators to give out. Because the temperatures rise the refrigerators have to work harder and causes some of them to quit. So then it's time to figure out what refrigerator is the best to buy.

Portable DVD Player

We own a portable DVD player and it is so nice to have when we are traveling. I watched Andy Griffith and the Beverly Hillbillies on the way to Minneapolis. It's nice to when we are waiting for our next flight to sit and pass the time away by watching a movie. I'm sure glad someone thought to invent those.


The other day I was online trying to book our seats on the plane for our trip to Florida. I was lucky enough to get the flights going to Orlando but haven't got the seats yet for coming home. When they say no seating till 90 days before take off, they mean it.

Because of all the rain a little while back there are still a lot of crops in the fields. But because it's been sunny for most of the week now it was good to see many farmers out harvesting. The way the weather had been, a lot of people were wondering if the farmers were going to have to wait till the ground froze before they could get in their fields.

Fall Colors

Traveling today and yesterday we saw so many beautiful fall trees. Minnesota was full of them and the color was awesome. It was such a gorgeous site going down the interstate and looking off into the distance at God's beautiful creation. Fall is the most beautiful time of the year.

Disney World Tickets

I remember the first time we took our sons to Disney World, they were in awe of this theme park and so was I. It is a wonderful place for families to visit.

Well, I gave in a couple mornings this past week and turned on the furnace. It helped get the chill off. I was just about froze. I hated doing that but I guess I just couldn't stand it anymore. I'm sure it won't be long and it will be on all the time.


Normally the longest I work in a row is 3 days and for the next 4 days I will be working. I'm not looking forward to the long stretch. I even have to go in early on two of the days. I will be very happy when they are done.

Dallas Cowboys Tickets

My oldest son is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan. He has loved them since he was a little boy. One of his dreams would be to get some Dallas Cowboys tickets and go to one of their games. His cousin is also a huge fan and the two of them together would have the time of their lives attending a game.
Sometimes it is very hard to get tickets to these type of games or even concerts.

Big Screen TVs

We've been shopping around for a big screen tv. We are interested in a flat screen LCD. Not one of those huge ones that has the back part just huge but the skinny tvs. It would be so fun to own one and enjoy our favorite tv shows or movies on it.
Time will tell I guess, if we get one.


We are in need of some new recliners. We went and looked at some today and wow, they aren't cheap. The one I want is so comfortable but to get a matching one might be a problem cause my husband thinks it may be too small for him. I guess we'll have to see. Maybe we will wait to see if we can find a different style.

We ate at a resturaunt at Cabelas. They had a special of beef stroganoff on noodles and cooked carrots and a dinner roll with a drink for $5.99. The serving sizes were so large that my husband and I were able to split it. It was delicious and reasonable.


On our way home we stopped at Cabelas. If you've never been to this store it's a huge place with tons of hunting and fishing kinds of things. There is a lot of outdoors items. They also have areas in the store where they have setups with stuffed real animals. It is so cool. It's hard to explain. You would have to see it to appreciate it.

The other night we had a pancake supper for the residents where my husband and I work. The food was so good and the residents really appreciated it. Most of the staff and their families dressed up in Halloween costumes. It was a fun night.

Florida Holiday Villa

One of my favorite vacation spots is in Florida. We work hard year round and holidays are the opportunity to spend quality time with our family and what better destination than Florida.

We are going to Florida in January. We are going to a timeshare. We bought a inexpensive trip down there. We have a 6 night stay and a rental car. We also get 2 day passes to one of the parks. It should be a lot of fun and will be a nice break in the winter.


We stayed at the most beautiful Sheraton Hotel. It reminded me of an Embassy Suites.
It was gorgeous. The room was fantastic and the decor was lovely. They had an Olympic size pool or just about that big. Everything about that place was classy. I'd love to stay there again sometime.

I love the show from the 70's called the Brady Bunch. I can watch them over and over again. I never get tired of the shows. They are back on tvland and I have been recording them so that when I have time I can sit and enjoy them again. They are nice wholesome shows.

Andy Griffith

I love watching some of the older sitcom shows that were played back in the 1960s. One of my favorites is the Andy Griffith Show. The best ones are the earlier shows with Barney. I can watch them over and over again and laugh every time. They are wholesome and children can even watch them unlike some today.

When we went to Dubuque this past weekend the weather was absolutely gorgeous. My husband and I walked down by the river. They have a beautiful walk path and it was so fun and relaxing to just stroll along. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy it.

Friday, October 19, 2007


We found out the other day that my sister in law's auction had to be moved to a different weekend now. They couldn't get a building rented on the weekend they wanted to have it. It works good for me though because I don't have to work the weekend she's having it and before I did. So all is good.


As long as I can remember I have tithed at least 10% of my wages. My parents taught me that and it is biblical. We have also taught our sons to tithe. God has blessed us so much and I know it's because we give faithfully. We want to tithe and God wants us to, it's in his word.

Christmas Decorations

I was out shopping the other day and the stores are so full of Christmas decorations. I know that Christmas is the month after next but I always have a hard time realizing that it's that close and it's odd to see all the decorations out when it's still kind of warm outside.

Tuesday, October 16, 2007


My youngest son has had a couple of interviews within the last week. I'm so proud of him because he takes the time to make sure he's dressed nice and he gets nice comments on how personable he is. I hope he gets the job that he really wants. God will provide.

Monday, October 15, 2007


This coming weekend we are going to go visit our son who lives in Dubuque. He attends a college there and we haven't seen him for awhile. It will be nice to get away and spend time together as a family. Our youngest son will be going with us too. Hopefully the weather will be nice so that we can spend some time outside enjoying the fall trees.
