THANKFULNESS DAY 13

I am thankful for and LOOOOOVE my crockpot. I love that I can throw everything in, turn it on and let it go. And oh, how the house smells wonderful all day long. On days I use my crockpot.......no tart warmers are necessary!

Grocery shopping day is definitely a crockpot day.  All I have in there is a large bag of ravioli, two three cheese Italian sausages, some Italian seasoned butter, some salt & pepper and a little bit less than 1/4 cup of water. You can add whatever else you'd like to it, maybe some veggies?  I put it on low and just let it go approximately 2-3 hours.

Do you use a crockpot?  On a real busy day, what is your favorite "goto" meal?

THANKFULNESS DAY 10

Yesterday evening I had a photo session at a park/pool near our home. During the session I lost my phone in the woods and then on my way home, I hit a deer. 
I am so very thankful that the only damage was a broken running light/turn signal.  I am also happy to report that both the driver and the deer, both survived!

GOD IS SO GOOD!!!

PS:  I found my phone! :D

THANKFULNESS DAYS 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8

THANKFULNESS DAY 4: I am thankful for my son and his laughter, hugs and his unconditional love. He has such a kind and gentle spirit and loves everyone he meets. I don't know what I would do without him!

I LOVE YOU, KIDDO! 


THANKFULNESS DAY 5: I am thankful for our cat Rascal and that he is sitting on my feet keeping them warm!

THANKFULNESS DAY 6: I am thankful that I get to spend time with my sister and her children today. It's going to be a great day!

 THANKFULNESS DAY 7: I am thankful for COFFEE.....enough said!

THANKFULNESS DAY 8: I am so thankful to have had a full night of uninterrupted, side of the mouth drooling sleep. I can't remember the last time that happened!

THANKFULNESS DAY 3

THANKFULNESS DAY 3: I am thankful for those times when I can slip off by myself and drive down a few back country roads taking pictures, capturing the glorious colors of each season. It is a time when I can have a heart-to-heart with God, yell and scream and shake my fist or just be in awe of His majesty and just worship with Him - no interruptions. And having a 7-11 Skinny French vanilla coffee and Praise & Worship music playing makes it even that much nicer!

Happy Birthday, Dad!


It's hard to believe that you have been gone 24 years already and that today, you would have been 85 years old. I miss you beyond words and take comfort knowing that we will one day be together again!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD! 
I LOVE and MISS YOU so very much!

There's No One To.....

wake me up at the crack of dawn.....

or run around the front yard.....
annoy the cats.....
hide in the woods.....
jump through the window with the missing screen to eat the cat food.....
forage under the fallen tree.....
wait at the side door for treats.....
eat the flowers.....
go under the van for shade.....
follow behind when I mow the grass looking for bugs.....
or play hide and seek under the stairs.
 
BAD BEAR!

I MISS MY LADIES!  
RIP, MY BEAUTIES!!
