Value of Life.

Amen… this is so powerful! I have just been watching a few “longer liven lives” in my view here in LIFE, and I have just been blown away at the fact of how a selfish-driven life, just dwindles down in the sunset of life– and crashes and burns. It. is. so. sad. But a life […]

Pasta Par-tay.

  We did a really fun activity with our small group…. we got sitters for the kids and went to Joel & Annie’s to make “pasta from scratch”. I can’t tell you how curious I was. Here Annie is mixing the pasta right out on the counter. In the end, it will be ravioli.  I […]

Sensational 6.

This weekend with old girlfriends was just what the doctor ordered. If there was in fact a doctor that would prescribe such things, “No, it’s not an apple a day any more that you need, but a girl’s weekend. Here I will write out an order for CVS.” I have known these girls for years […]

The Fall Episode.

Fall is my FAVORITE time of year. Fall is perfect for… (the following) …Displaying mums that your girls sat on a million times in the cart at Walmart– and then, died a week later on the porch, because you never bothered to water them. Reason: not fun to water battered, ugly mums. …Creating warmth inside […]

{Long post…. } ~~~ We had a really socially full, really fun, July 4 weekend. Friday night the youth met on our town`s square, where festivities were going on. We watched a Thunder Idol, where contestants sang for a table of judges in a well, American Idol style. It was super entertaining… The winner– excellent […]

Day Journal.

I have seen this done various times. Most recently, Arielle and Shelley. Both these ladies have beautiful blogs. You should check them out. Well, this morning is a blah-ish Monday so I though this quiz might take me to a cheery place. Although in a lot of ways today is not that bad. //So here […]
