Friday...Favorite Things

Family Beach Trip

Sweet Frog--delicious frozen yougurt on a hot day

Watching #1 daughter getting ready for her pharmacy rotations--and she still wants my opininio!

Health-great doctor check-up yesterday.  Wonder why so many doctors and nurses are amazed I am not on any medications?  Only vitamins I answer.

Getting ready to celebrate another year on my life on Tuesday!!!

Having both daughters home-

Watching little children
Happy Fourth of July!

1. What do the words 'freedom' and 'liberty' mean to you? Does your mind go more in the direction of not being persecuted or discriminated against or does it head in the direction of doing what you please?
Freedom and liberty means not being discriminated against for one's beliefs or values.  2. Nathan's sponsors a hot dog eating contest every 4th of July. Last year over 40,000 people attended the event and almost 2 million watched it on TV. The winner ate over 60 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. How do you like your hot dogs?

Nathan's hot dogs are the best.  I prefer my hot dog grilled -a little black-add mustard, chili, & relish
. 3. If you were going to enter an eating contest what would be on the menu? 
Watermelon 4. Do you run your house more as a dictatorship or a democracy?

When the girls were younger, probably a little of both. Democracy-even when the girls were younger, they had a chance to say what was on their minds during a famil…

Daughter's Rotations

So Proud

#1 daughter began her pharmacy rotations today.  So proud of her.

She was so excited about today. 
It is hard to believe my beautiful daughter has grown up.  I don't know where the time has gone.

Wishing my daughter good luck today. 

Finally....A Family Vacation

We all know how hard it is to have a family vacation --with 'the family.'  It has been 8 years since 'the family' has been together on vacation.  Having two daughters in college-#1 daughter is now completing her Doctorate of Pharmacy and begins rotations on Monday and #2 daughter graduated from college a couple of weeks ago and she played college basketball-we just never had the chance to be together as a family.  So 'the family' got the chance this past week!

After a full week of Bible School-for 3 hours every night, we were ready for a vacation.

We took our grandson with us to Myrtle Beach-hey 4 adults can watch one 3 year old.

There is something about the ocean that is just so peaceful.  Stress and worries are lifted off our shoulders for a few days. capture this feeling in everyday life would be magnificent.

I enjoy reading-all the time -especially while at the beach/pool.  On the other hand, hub hunts for sharks' teeth. When the girls were l…

Friday Favortie Things

#1 daughter-I am so proud of your accomplishments.  You will finish your classwork today from Appalachian College of Pharmacy -better known as ACP and begin your rotations in a week.  So Proud!!-but moving your 'stuff' was not so good.

Cousins-- How can I thank these two wonderful cousins for helping hub and I move #1 daughter out of her apartment?  First, you guys gave found a baby sitter for your little man, gave up a Sunday afternoon, and didn't mind the hours driving and loading up furniture.  Thanks!

Second story...ugh!

to my little man--3 year -old-grandson (my stepson's son)---I am a little exhausted this morning.  Going to Bible School with you this week has been a blast, but I don't remember being this tired with my two daughters when I went with them.  Is it because I am older now?   Praise The Lord for a great week-and tonight is the program.

Prayers please...We are going to the beach on Sunday and I have broken out with some type of rash.  Now taking Pr…
1. In what way are you your own worst enemy?
Being a perfectionist. 

2. Jacques Cousteau's birthday was Monday, June 11th...ever been scuba diving? Is that something you'd like to try? What's your favorite 'under the sea' creature? Definitely no sucba diving for me.
The only 'under the sea' creature I can think of is a dolphin.  Does that count? 3. On a scale of 1-10, how comfortable are you in and around the water? (1=not at all, 10=very) Do you know how to swim and if so how and when did you learn? When I was younger, I was stepped on while swimming under water and had to be pulled to the top.  I never went back in the water (swimming or diving) after that incident.  Now I wish I would have so I would have gotten over that fear.  I am not comfortable at all around the water.  However, I do enjoy a boat ride on the lake.
4. What's something you do to motivate yourself to tick an item off your to-do list? Either having my hub reminding me ab…

Another move-

Moving Day, Again

Daughter #1 will be coming home Friday to begin her rotations (all close to home) from Appalachian College of Pharmacy.  Right after church, we began the move.
The view from her apartment is beautiful.
Not so beautiful when one is carrying furniture-so my hubs says.

Living on the second floor-isn't always a good idea when  moving and maneuvering furniture.

After several trips up and down the steps-the mission was accomplished!

A big thanks to my two wonderful cousins who helped!
It will be nice having both daughters home for the summer for a change-even if one will be working.

Have a great week.

Thanks for posting the questions.  Hope all hops on over and joins.
1. How many students were in your high school graduating class? Did you know most, if not all of them?
I attended a small high school in Virginia, and there were probably around 100 in my graduating class.  Not only did I know most of them but knew their siblings, parents, and grandparents as well.
2. What was the last thing you photographed? Sunday, at our church picnic-my grandson looking at a butterfly caught by one of his friends, and the beautiful lake.

3. Pickles-love 'em or loathe 'em? If its love what's something you eat that needs a pickle?
Love'em.....Pickles & potato salad and tuna salad. 

4. What's a stereotype you seem to perpetuate without meaning to?
The only thing coming to my mind is blonde jokes or hope #2 daughter doesn't read this-jock (athlete)jokes are the best!

5. Ever been horse back riding? If so is it something you enjoy? If not, do you have any interest? Did …


Yesterday was our church's  annual picnic.  Yes-tons and tons of food-cooked the ole fashion way-if you know what I mean.

The weather was perfect-for me- a  nice 72 degrees.  A little cool for the 'older' crowd. I enjoy sitting and watching the people and talking to people I usually don't talk to at church.  Let me explain-we have three services at my church.  One service begins at 8:30-you will be surprised at the younger folks who attend in the summer this service, a traditional service at 11:00 and a contemporary service at 11:00.  When I am not in children's church, I attend the contemporary service, so I miss speaking to people at the other services.  So the church picnic gives me a chance to sit and catch up on things. Besides when you wait to the end to eat-there is so much food still left!

The children play ball and.....a perfect Kodak moment I captured of grandson and friend looking at a butterfly..

After eating and playing ball, we all head down to the…
