Snow and Ice

They are really talking it up about the storm heading our way. We are suppose to get a mix of snow and ice. We may have a couple of hours where it will just be freezing rain so that could be a problem. I sure hope it doesn't get as bad as they are saying.

Quality Christmas Baskets

With Christmas coming it so nice to give or receive quality Christmas baskets. You can really get some nice items in them. They are appropriate for just about anyone. Not only are they great for Christmas but they are wonderful for friends that are ill or a thank you gift.
At there are some pretty nice gift baskets. They have the finest gourmet foods put into them. These gift baskets are special works of art.
Italian gift baskets are always a favorite to many people and are great as sympathy gift baskets and housewarming gift baskets.
This is a family owned business that has been operating since 1940. They ship world wide via FedEx and package the baskets in premium packing. They go all out for their customers and you can see that in the quality of their products.
Give them a try and let them prove to you how special their gift baskets are. You will never want to shop anywhere else.

Big Crowds

We went grocery shopping tonight and their were big crowds in the stores everywhere. The lines were long. You could tell that Christmas is just around the corner and that we are in for a snowstorm tomorrow and Sunday. It was crazy.

Sweet Dreams

Well, it's about that time to go to bed and hopefully have sweet dreams. I have to work tomorrow so I need to get to bed at a decent time. I'm getting pretty tired and that's good. Should be a good night of rest.

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.

Christmas Music

I love Christmas music. I have it playing while I'm posting. I started listening to it a couple of weeks ago, already. The season goes by so fast and I was in the mood to hear it. I have to listen to it while I can. There are so many good, fun songs.

22 inch monitor

I recently purchased a Westinghouse 22 inch monitor for my computer. It's a amazing.
I went from a 15 inch to this one so it's pretty big in comparison. It's so much easier to read and I get the whole page on it without having to scroll from side to side.

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.

Saturday, November 24, 2007


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I will try to not feel guilty about doing that.=)

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

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.
