1. Give us three rhyming words that say something about your Thanksgiving holiday (or your most recent holiday gathering if you didn't celebrate Thanksgiving). 

Share, prayer, bear

Delivered food we share
Said a prayer
And then we ate like a bear

2. When did you last say, 'the more the merrier'? Did you mean it?

Sure I have said this phrase...can't remember when...but most definitely meant it.  

3. What's one piece of advice you'd give someone who is your same age?


We have lived half a century, so go out and enjoy each day!




4. You're ordering a veggie plate, what four veggies are on it?

Absolutely love veggies.....
Peppers-green, red, Jalapeno
Corn-preferably corn salad
Sweet Potato
Zucchini-preferably cooked zucchini with onions

5. Shop til you drop! Did you? Have you ever? Will you between now and Christmas?

I did not shop till I dropped, but I shopped.  On Friday (yes, Black Friday), my aunt, aunt's daughter, and I went shopping.  We were not looking for anythin…

Just some tid bits......


We (hub, oldest daughter and I) spent our Thanksgiving delivery food to those less fortunate than we.  This has been our Thanksgiving for many, many years.  Youngest daughter was unable to be with us because of work, but as she says Mom people still need me on Thanksgiving....

The weather cooperated this year.  Some chill in the air but heck it is November, right?
The trunk of our van was loaded....H stands for the hot meal and C stands for cold...as in desserts.  We delivered for around two hours.

After delivering the food, hub and I ate at the church....great fellowship.

We had to stop by and see this 'little fellow'.

This is oldest daughter's little Molly.

I did manage to put up some Christmas decorations.



Have a Blessed Week.

Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving


1. What's something you might say runs in your family?

Being on time...punctuality!  I taught my girls right on this one.  If there is one thing that is a pet peeve of mine is being late.  Now I know sometimes things happen but not all the time. 
2. I read here a list of ten things you should do before 2017 arrives (in less than six weeks!)...which tasks on the list might you do? What would you add to your own 'before the year ends' list?

visit your Dr. or dentist, deep clean your home, donate unwanted items to charity, look someone in the eye and tell them you love them, write an honest letter to yourself, clean up your inbox-desktop-photos, travel to a place you haven't been, compliment a stranger, watch the sunrise, think ahead to your goals/plans for the new year
I have been to the doctor for my yearly check-up, been to the dentist for six month check-up, always look hub and family in the eye and tell them I love them, watch the sunr…

Put on your happy face.....





1. Let's all think happy thoughts...share one of yours here.

Oh, I can't just go with one!
The birth of my children, hearing my oldest daughter laugh after her second open heart surgery, watching my daughters graduate from high school, watching my youngest daughter play in the state finals, watching both graduate from college, my youngest daughter's wedding, spending time with my grandchildren....I could go on and on and on.
2. There's a Chinese proverb that says, "If you want happiness for an hour take a nap, if you want happiness for a day-go fishing...." What say you? If you want happiness for a day _____________.

I  wake up thanking God for another day and I know God is going to do amazing things today  so I thank him for the amazing things he has in store for me today.  
3. Where do you go to decompress from the world around you?

To decompress I take a walk. When the weather is warm, I walk around our walking trail in our loca…

Watery eyes and stopped up nose.....

I usually don't rant on my blog....but right now I am miserable. 
Fires are raging out of control....and rain...well, I can't remember the last time it rained.  Stepping outside...is like stepping in a fog machine..... My eyes are watery, my nose is burning, my nose is stopped up...and I can hardly breathe. I cannot bare to step outside...I smell smoke, the air is so hazy.   We are in much need of rain. Even though I am miserable, I cannot imagine what the fire fighters are going through. My prayers are with them. Oh, rain how I miss you....come soon.
