This is friendly.he doesnt like his picture taken so I dont know why he is sitting so well.I always have problems getting his picture.that is why I had to use barelys so many times.well on this day he was being a good boy and just possing up a storm..I think omie and max most have told him if he didnt get his picture taken he couldnt be on the blog!!!so he was being a cool dude for his fan,s!!!
This is the cards from the family.and the lilics the girls picked...well some of them.the darn things went bad on me so this was all I had left this morning.the bottle is what Lucy gave me...I said hope you didnt swill all the booze that was in it!!!!she said some thing like it was wine.I said its still booze!!!!its a nice bottle for my collection of blue glass.
This is the white lilic,s the girls picked.Anna picked some first and had them waiting for me when I came.they smeeeeeeelllllll sooooo gooood!!!!
then Lucy and Anna went and picked some there were alot of them only when I had to take them home they didnt do so I lost some.
it was a very nice day.Anna made some BBQ,s and beans,mac salad,and her death by chocolate heathbar cake.yummmmmmmy!!!!
every thing was great.we had a nice visit.em and sar played with TJ and Jake.they were playing cop,s and was funny they were using sameri swords.
aint seen no cop,s here use them but maybe they should.a lot of bad guys may think twice before getting their heads loped off by a sameri sword!!!
Anna and lucy walked out and sat on the swing and visited.they wanted me to come to.but I have watched too many of those home vidoes of people swinging away and the swings falling off the porch!!!I am after all a big I said no Ill sit here and visit with your hubby.he said he was going to turn the tv on something I wouldnt like, so Id go with he turned it on american gladieator.there was this hot young guy on called metro or some thing.I said ooooo baby!!!!and the son in law said oh crap mom is having a hot flash!!!EWWWWWWW!!!!
Hot flash crap,I may be old and dont move so good.but I can still enjoy a hot looking guy in spandix!!!I maybe "old "I aint dead for petes sake.but dont worry I still have a saying that keeps me sane!!!"they may be good looking,but they are most likely more looken then good!!!!!if you get my drift????besides this guy was a puppy and they are too dang hard to house train if you get my drift????well all in all it was a nice day.I came home and it was nice to be loved.I fell asleep smelling the lilic,s.

Its 94 here and hotter the hello!!!and Im dang glad I have the air on or Id be a big puddle of fat on my living room floor.they say we may have storms tonight.wouldnt dought it.with all the heat and a cold front coming on later.only pray we have rain and alittle lighting and thunder.NO HAIL,NO TORNADOS.NO WIND

spring time drive.

This is a picture of a apple tree in the was so pretty and happy all in bloom I needed to share it with the rest of you.I drove in and just looked at how poudly it stood over the grave of a loved one.someone planted this to mark the even if all the family went.this tree would forever say every lays someone who is loved and rememberd.I wondered who the person was.and their story.if they knew Jesus when they left.if they were a nice person.and I thought no one would plant a tree for a mean person.this tree was for a person who was loved by someone.

This picture is of the little chaple,its so cute I just had to take a picture.the sky was so blue and it was just too pretty to miss taking a picture.
and its a peaceful place.I have a few friends buryed in this was a guy I had a big crush on when I was a teen.he was mean to me for a long time.called me names and was just plain day I found out he had cancer.I stopped in to see how he was doing.
I had seen his mom and asked her how he was.she said why dont you go in and say hi.he would like to see you.I was scared to death.but I went in.he was in his room and he said to come in.he almost fell over when I walked in.
I stood there and he stood there and he finely said sit down.I sat down and was going to say how are you.but instead I said why did you hate me so much?and started to cry.I said I cared alot about you and you treated me like crap.he came over and put his arm around me and said he was sorry.I said I did more then care about you I was in love with you.

he said he had just been mean cause his friend had liked me and he didnt want to get him mad.that he had liked me to.he said that is why he had stopped one night at my place when his friend was out of town.or thought his friend was out of town.
I had walked out to see what he had wanted.and the other guy was in the house by the window.I didnt know what was up.and by the time I figured it was a set up, it was too late.(figured they both had planned it to see what Id do.but it was the friends Idia.guess he was testing us both.)
the one I cared about had said would you go out with me some time.and the guy in the house heard it.
the guy in the house came out and went nuts.he chased the one off I liked and started yelling at me.I told him he didnt own me.and Id talk to who I liked.he was a jurk.and I wouldnt be his friend anymore.he ended up killing his Im real glad I didnt go out with him.

any way here I sat next to the person who I had cared so much about for a long time.and he was saying he had cared for me to.but I didnt feel the same for him as I had.and I belonged to someone else.I was wearing a engagment ring.
I told him I would pray for him and I hoped all would go good for him.but in my heart I knew it was only a short time.back then that kind of cancer was a death sentence.
I hugged him and we both said goodby.he said he was sorry he had been like that to me.and I said I forgave him.he asked me to stop again.but I didnt get the chance.but that night as I walked passed his open bedroom window, on my way home from baby sitting.I said good night brian.he said good night.
a few weeks later he was taken to the hospital.and a few weeks later I got a call from his mom but I was gone.when I got home my mom said his mom had called.I called his mom to ask what he wanted.she said he was in the hospital and had asked for me.
I said how do I go to see him.but she said she was sorry he already passed away.I felt so bad.I said did you know what he wanted.she said he had wanted to tell me something.I will never know what it was.I felt bad for a long time after.

but I know why we were able to see each other before he was for me to forgive him.and for him to say he was sorry to me.we were both given the chance to part on good terms.he was able to know someone had loved him in life.and that I was able to know he had cared for me .
I would think of him alot as the years went on.I knew we didnt belong was just a young girl crash.and if we had gotten together Id have ended up in sorrow over his death.I felt bad he died and I was sick about it for a long time.but if he had been my boyfriend or hubby it would have been some thing I may not have been able to take.I was 17 he was 19.

his name was Brian (duke was his neck name.)his family moved off down south cause the mom couldnt handle it any more.I think about him every time I drive past the home they lived in.he had two brothers and one sister.I was friends with his little brothers.they were good kids.I wonder if they ever think of me.

I have a praise report .the probate hearing went off like smooth brother wasnt even I didnt have to even deal with my son in law is able to take care of all this now.the Lord worked it all out.the days before the hearing I was so worryed.but each time I took it to the Lord he told me not to fear.and when we walked into the hearing and my brother didnt even show up it was a blessing.the Lord said he wouldnt be able to cause me I was glad.any way it doesnt pay to mess with Gods kids.

more little praise reports.I was having problems with my darn when I was driving home I couldnt stop and pick lilac,s.I said Lord they smell so good I wish I could get out to pick some.
but my darn hip hurts and I just want to get home and put my feet up.I had the window open in the van and could smell the lilic,s every time I went by some.
I drove in the parking lot.and went into the I walked through the hall I looked over on the counter top.
some times people put things there they dont want.there was some thing there so I went to check it out.
what do you think was there?one branch of lilic,s .
I desided someone must of layed the lilic there and would come back to get I started to walk off.
the Lord said its yours pick it the Lord picked me some cause I that is love.
I came up and placed them in water and they smell so Jesus loves me.
once I wanted snacks so bad and didnt have money to go get some.I wanted swiss cheese and crackers and some thing good to eat.I felt I should go down and get my mail in the evening instead of waiting for the next I walked down the hall.

on the table in the family room was crackers, cheese,summer sausage,and some other!!!!now I was so surprised.I had my snacks.God is so good.I often wonder who the angel is the Lord uses to do these things.

my sister in law says she thinks the Lord picked the lilic and put it there before I came in the door.and he is able to do what he wants.I know one lady said when Jesus came in her room one night she could smell sweet flowers.and all the windows were shut.guess its why they call him the lilly of the valley. or the rose of sharon.

Have a great weekend and God bless.thanks for reading.

what a nice little family.

Mom Pop and the youngens.

the day I went to the park there were geese swimming near me.they looked so happy with their little family.the little ones stayed close to mom and pop.and they came over near me as if to say "see our kids!!!
they stayed near me for a little while then swam off down the river.
I felt blessed to see them.its always a blessing to see young familys enjoying the warm weather at the park.
its nice to know that the geese mate for life.they stay together as long as they are alive.if one is shot the other is lost without them.its sad to see a goose alone back at the place they nested the year before.its as if they hope the other just got lost and would come back to the nest.but some one eather has the lost one on their plate or one poor bird is without their life mate cause some hunter needs to feed his ego by killing some thing.

I look at this family and hope they can stay safe.but in this wild and crazy world its not real easy.I envey the animals and birds who have mates who dont run off with someone else just cause they think the grass is greener.or eye up others cause they look better then the one they are with.or arent grown up enough to be in a relationship. how wonderful it must be to have someone who loves you enough to want to stay with you for life.this family looked so peaceful and happy.hope they are able to be together all the days of their life.and no one shots them just for fun.and their little ones grow up and find their mate and have some of their own little ones.

looking to the future together.

well I got home sat night about 6;oo.we had pizza before I left. Tj had two of his friends over.they went fishing and Anna, jake and her hubby and I watched was a nice visit.
this picture was taken up at the park the day we went for a ride.its a cute picture of them together.they make a cute couple.this is Anna her hubby and their little dog teddy.

we had a nice time just visiting and watching movies.the kids had a good time at the sales they went to.its a 70 some mile has alot of towns that all have their sales at the same time.
I just stayed and put the dog out for felt good to just sit out in the country and enjoy the day.
teddy sat on the foot rest and I rocked us with my foot.he is so funny cause if I stop he looks at me as if to say"hey get rocking!!!

Anna and her family help me would be pretty lonely without them.her hubby is a nut.he did his no shirt musle builder pose,hairy chest and all.

I played it burns my eyes out and hold up my hand in front of my eyes.and say "O my God,I wouldnt be able to get that picture out of my mind now"!!!!!

I love to tease him.he giggles and it cracks me up. they put the picture of her hubby on their cell phone so when they called me here is the fur bareing mamel himself looking at me. I said what tah!!!! and Anna started laughing.

I said I thought some porn site was calling me or something!!!she just giggled and said thats why she called to see what I would say.(ANNA,S hubby is a fur bareing mamel!!!!)
I need to get down and pick on kruze to. I aint picked on him for a long time.we use to rip on each other alot and tease.I miss it.he is a sweet heart to.I like to see him giggle to.(kruze is my other son in law.)if ya read, love you kruze....

I felt like a new person when I got home .it helped me to get in a better mood.I was still down yet before I left to go to Anna,s.I just couldnt seem to get the enrgy or some thing.have you ever been like that?well lately that is how I felt.I came home and I just rested on sunday.didnt even feel like getting on the I just rested.

today I went wild and cleaned thats a shock!!!!! cause the poor house has been let go for a while.I felt who the H--- see,s it anyway!!!!but then today it came to me, even if Iam alone I love this place and I like to see it clean!!!so with the Lords help I went to cleaning.and it looks better.tomorow Ill do the rest and wash clothes.

well the hubby called just before I left on thursday.he said he had notised I hadnt called for a few days.I hadnt heard form him for over a month and I hadnt called for at lest that long.I had talked to his mom when he isnt there.but guess it says alot when he thinks its only been a few days and a month went by.

he acted like every thing was ok and nothing was wrong.

its best that he left.I had to see it for my self.when he came back for the month it showed me that it was best for me to be here alone.he says he is doing better that all is well with him now.but is it?I heard it before and every thing was not ok!!!! I prayed for him about 2 weeks ago by calling a prayer group and explaining the mess with them.and they helped me get some insight into the mess,it helped alot.

wonder what would have happened if I had done to him what he did to me?boy if I had a brain Id be dangerous.where men are consurened I sure dont know how to pick em!!!!

I will one day just do what needs to be done.but Ill wait tell Iam sure he is on his feet and able to handle it.I dont want to do the paper work tell I am sure.he wont mind any way but I feel I have to do whats best for both of us.I dont think he ever really loved me.I think it was just the Idia of the thing he loved.but guess we will never know the truth for sure.all I know is what I saw,and that was enough to show me it wasnt going to work.

I would sure like to go back and enjoy the good times we had at first.but you cant go back and live it over.and there were some very good times.
blue eyes from the blog(its the little things.)was talking about things like this.

she made some good seems that I was seeing the man he was trying to be, and couldnt.and it was very hard when I lost that man. cause he was the one I loved.he is the one I miss.but this person who came in his place is a stranger.and we dont fit together at all.I dont believe he will be able to handle a realionship tell he can get right with the Lord.that realionship is the most important.with out that one right, nothing else goes right.

pray for him and was 4 years of up,s and alot of downs.and it will take us both a long time to heal with the Lords help.

I believe the Lord has a plan for my life and he will bring it to pass.I maybe alone but I have the Lord.

someone once said."if you have every thing but dont have the Lord ,you have nothing.but if you only have the Lord, you have everything!!!!and it is so ture.

It took me 18 years to get to the point to trust men again ,to even try to be in love again and this happened!!!!so I need to if I get down on men its cause I have seen what they are like.and it sucks big time!!!!

so if you are a good man out there and you read my blog then you have to forgive me and see where Iam coming from.

Iam getting hungry and need to fix I will close for tonight.have a great week and God bless you all.
thanks for reading.

ride to the park

The kids picked me up on sunday and we headed up north.

It was a warm day,near we had to have the air on.the boys were in funny mood.they were talking up a storm.I had to stop at the store to get some thing.and desided to pick up some candy,bad Idia!!!the boys and candy do not mix.they turn into moter mouths.and they already was funny cause they had already eaten the candy when I reilized what I had done.

I said Oh noooo I forgot they shouldnt have candy on long rides.its too late now mom my son in law said!!!so we listened to two mouths run like a wiperwills butt in a wind storm!!!!poor Anna was in the back with them.

we went up the river road and saw a eagle on a tree.I spotted it and yelled and pointed it out.the son in law said geez mom I almost ended up on the graud rail.they were laugthing cause he was playing like he was bouncing off the rail.
Anna said yes mom he streers where he is looking.I kept my mouth shut then so we didnt end in the river.

we got to the park and we drove over so I could show them where I want to park when I camp.they showed me the one they wasnt to far from where theirs was almost empty in the camping area just one camper.

we pulled down to the north camping site and the guys went and Anna sat in the van and just talked.the boys had left poor Dad as he was talking to them.he comes and says mom do you feel like your talking to your self?i said all the time.I just talk to the Lord then I dont feel so bad!!!

the breeze was cool under the trees so I didnt need the air.if its too hot I get sick,but it was just right. Anna busyed herself getting pic,s of the guys as they I watched and thought about the boys were getting bigger and soon they would have familys of their own.and bring their own kids here.I felt like I was getting older by the minute.I remembered when mom use to go with them for rides.I missed her and the times we went to the place where the swans and geese where.

Anna is a good mom,she does nice things for her was her Idia to go for the ride.she packed a lunch ,but the boys were too hungery when they got home from mowing they had to eat before they came.she fixed a sandwich for me and I eat it while they fished.

the river is so pretty here where we sat.its one of the most lovely parks I know.I have come here for most of my mom and Dad use to bring me up there.the kids love to camp here every year at lest once.they go other places to.

we drove along the the other side of the river and then headed home the way we was a nice ride.we came close to town and the boys were looking for I told the son in law to stop and Id get us some cheese burgers and frys.we filled our faces on the way back.

the kids dropped me off and I went up and put my night gown on and eat my cheese burgers.the sky was getting darker and a rain storm moved in as I watched TV.the lighting flashed across the sky and the smell of rain filled the room.I could hear thunder off in the was a good day.I layed in bed and listened to the rain and the thunder ,I fell asleep .
