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…

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)…

(On the Home front our smart tv died and that is the biggest blessing this holiday!) 😆 We spent the whole evening talking and…

Heat of Summer

Hello friends! I hope you’re staying cool and safe in this hot summer! This morning at 830 it was already 80 degrees, so I’m guessing it’s gonna be a scorcher again! I have a black car with black interior and it’ll be a little toasty when I get off work! How do you stay cool…

Parking Lot Shenanigans

Hey Everyone! Happy Friday and weekend! I wonder if any of you have sweet plans this weekend? I’m on call, so I’m staying close to my cell phone but hopefully things will be smooth 😉 Yesterday I WAS NOT ON CALL, so me and hubs lived it up with some of our married children and…
