Wordless Wednesday

Hoo Are You?


It's been awhile since I have done this. So I thought I'd join in this week. Maybe you will want to.

Here are this week's questions!

1. Do you plant a garden or flowers, or neither?
I really don't do any kind of gardening. I have tried in the past and it doesn't seem to work for me. But I do like getting flowers! 

2. Does it bother you to have your blinds or curtains 
open after dark so people can see in your house?
Yes! I make a point to turn the blinds if they haven't already by the time evening comes.

3. Do you like to go camping?
It depends on what kind of camping. I use to like it a lot when I was a kid. But as I have gotten older I realize I really don't like sleeping on the ground. So I need a bed at min or a air mattress.

4. Do you have a laptop or a desk top computer?
We have both. I usually use a desktop but when it's not being nice I hang out on my husband's lap top as it runs faster.

5. What time during the day do you have your most energy?
Probably at night when everyone is asleep and I have my alone time. 

Here are the RULES!!!
  Here's how it will work, each  Tuesday I'll post a few questions. They can be anything from What's your  favorite color to What's your favorite movie. 
  • You will post them in a new post on  your blog (you can back date this post so it doesn't show up as your  newest post) and then come and link up that particular post (not the  link to your main blog) here on our link party
  • Make sure to visit as many blogs as  you can and comment! It will be a good way to get to know some fun and  interesting things about your fellow crafters!

  • Also add this cute little button to your post so that others can join in on the PARTY!!! (It is over on the left side bar)

  • Royal Heirloom Ring

    I haven't decided if I am going to watch the royal wedding or not this weekend. But thought I'd share this. It looks really pretty.

    Reminder: Wednesday is 31 Cent Scoop Night

    A glimpse of how our Easter went. This was a Easter egg hunt at our church.

    Menu Plan Monday

    Well this is my tenative plan. We will see what actually happens. It is so weird to go back to 'normal' life considering how crazy the last 3 months have been. If you are in need of any more meal ideas please check out orgjunkie.com for inspiration! Oh and I'm not going to put the day I may cook a dinner so that I have more freedom in my choosing.

    Ribs and corn
    Sausage links and biscuits ( Got a great deal at Safeway on the links figured I should use them!)
    Spaghetti (I may try to add some pureed veggies in the sauce. Trying to figure out ways to better feed my family)
    Chicken (Either Dad's homemade nuggets or another version I found in a book)
    Hot dogs/Hot links/Smoked Sausage and rice

    So what do you plan on feeding your family this week? Now that Passover and Easter is done with?

    So Much Love

    I also wanted to share my husband holding my Mom's hand but it didn't come thru. I love that woman so much. It's so weird to think that I am now an adult orphan. No one is ever prepared for that. No matter how old you are.

    Mindy Smith - One Moment More

    For my Mom. This song makes me think of her.


    Maybe now you will no longer be in pain. Maybe now you can dance and swing high on swings. Enjoy the breeze on your face and do whatever it is you want. You are so loved. You will be so missed. I love you.

    A New Beginning

    I know I have been really bad about writing here. But truth be told when you lose your father on January 14th and than hearing about your mother having cancer January 22nd, well keeping up a blog is the last thing on your mind.

    My sweet mother passed away on Friday April 15th, 2011. She is no longer in pain. Praise God. I can be happy about that. But I can still be terribly sad that she is no longer physically here with us. She is going to be missed a lot. I am still in shock that she is no longer here. 2011 has not been a kind year.

    I am going to try and find the motivation to write in here again. If anything, perhaps a place to just dump my feelings in. My life has totally changed from what it was before. Things that I thought were important are not so much.

     I don't know how my new normal will go. I've been told I need to be good to myself. I am not sure I even know what that means. But I guess I'll have to try. I'm not going to make any promises but I'll try to write in here more than I have. I don't know if life will slow down as I have found that life well, it gives you unexpected things and nothing is a guarantee. I might resort to just following the blog hops or the Meme's for now. But I do like having this space to call my own. Regardless what comes out of my brain. Maybe I should do more of that. But the hour is late so I'm going to go for now. Thanks for listening.
