Laughter, the Best Medicine

Hello friends and happy Thursday! I just had to share something hilarious from last night. Our daughter and her two children (age 8 and 4) are living with us. It’s been a big change for all of us and we often have such fun! Last night my husband came home late from work; he’s been…

History of Brave Women

Hello Friends! Happy Thursday! I was listening to a podcast this morning by Rachel Hollis-interviewing Lisa Kleypas discussing her writing career and historical events that shape women’s lives. I thought I would share some history of a brave woman I know. My grandma Lindberg, Norma R Lindberg was born in 1920 and died in 2009 so I had time as an adult to get to know my grandma Lindberg. My other grandma, Faye H Dana died in 1982 and I didn’t get to know her as well as an adult; I was only 17 when she passed away from cancer.…

New Year Renewal

Hello friends! Happy New Years Eve! I hope you are all ready for 2019! How did the year go by so quickly?? I’m happy for a new year; it’s like a fresh start (and of course then there is spring {after snow melts in a couple months}and everything in the earth is new too)! I…

Gaming (In my House)

Hello friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I enjoyed myself immensely over the last four days off from work! I got to see some of my hubs family and then my children/grandchildren came over two of the last four days! I am so blessed! I think the most fun I have is in “gaming” which means something different to me! In our family, we love love love to play games! Lately we’ve been playing a lot of “Codenames”, “Sequence”, “Ticket to Ride”, “UNO” of course, “Pass the Pigs, and our grandkids gave us a new game “Skull King”…

Renewed Thriftiness and Thankfulness

Hello Friends! How are you all doing? Did you survive Thanksgiving weekend and Black Friday?? I try to get a lot or most of my Christmas shopping done that weekend to spend more time enjoying the holiday season, but I still have six gifts left to purchase; which is not too bad out of 22 people we (me and hubs) have on our gift list this year. I am so blessed with a wonderful family and great friends that I am happy to be out shopping for them. Although my thanksgiving was less than ideal (see my “Thanksgiving Debacle” post)…

Thanksgiving Debacle

Hello friends! I’ve recovered from thanksgiving (I wasn’t planning on needing to recover so it took a whole day) and I thought I would share 😉 I decided previous to thanksgiving that I’ve baked for enough years that I would like to relax a bit. So I did some searching online and found a local…

Thankful for a Broke Down TV

Hello friends! I am just sitting down after a great dinner celebrating my daughter in law’s birthday. We made a enchilada casserole and bought chips and salsa from our favorite restaurant. (On the Home front our smart tv died and that is the biggest blessing this holiday!) 😆 We spent the whole evening talking and…

Warrior Weekend

Hello friends! Happy Labor Day weekend! For me it really was a Labor Day yesterday! 😂 We drove up to my parents home in Wyoming Friday night (late Friday night- I discovered how hard it is to see on the toad when the cars traveling toward me have new headlights)! Or maybe it’s age- IDK! Anyway yesterday morning we wore our grubby clothes (my sisters remarked they were glad none of us were dressed up and are au naturel for this fun filled day😂🤣)and rode in the back of the truck toward the back end of the property next to…

Wish List

Hey friends! How are you all on this fine Wednesday? I hope everyone is well and happy 🙂 I thought I would share a little bit of my fun trip to Wyoming last weekend! I left on Thursday and returned Sunday. Thursday I had some fun in the thriving metropolis of Thayne Wyoming (actually it’s…

Sister Pride

Hey Friends! I’m sharing some pride in my sister, let me tell you all about it: Last night I was scrolling through Facebook and found a post from a distant relative. It appeared she had taken a picture of the back/behind of two women in swim attire and proceeded to shame them based on their weight and appearance; calling them “visual pollution”….so offensive right? I was surprised to see this coming from someone I know. I then scrolled down and read a comment my sister Tenae posted; saying she found this sad that a woman would take a picture of…
