Running up to speed

Time to play catch up:

* My father in law is at home from his respite. Please continue to pray for the family.

* My grandmother....bless her heart! She is a cat with 9 lives and going on the 20th. She died last year and was a no code blue and they brought her back to life, oooops..............since then she wants to live.

* Jesse is in baseball. That alone takes up a lot of time.

* Joe is getting ready to graduate. (again rofl) Then enrolled in the academy to graduate again in Dec...ROFL

* I have begun a personal journey to get fit and healthy. I had put on the pounds and wasn't very happy with myself. I joined a free weight loss web site that does it all, and I mean DOES IT ALL FOR YOU! You meet so many friends and learn so much!

* Dan bought himself a new bike and his been riding daily.

* We are working on our yard. Making a new dog kennel and I think we are going to take out the pool.

* Now about quilting: I am keeping up with my BOMS, got a UFO on the frame and plan to have it done by Saturday. I will post pictures later.

So for now I will leave you with pictures of Foster. He is a crazy dog! He ALWAYS is carrying something in his mouth and if he sees something else laying around he will try to cram it in also.


2 of my boys went to West Virginia for a visit with their Aunt. Little did they know that they would be caught in a flood & mud slide. It was a state of emergency. They ended up staying down there to help out. Some people's home were totally washed away! My nieces home almost was but they all worked really hard & built a barrier to stop the land from washing out.
You are looking at a photo of a beautiful swimming pool by the bath house. Then the same photo one day later. It is filled with mud!
They all are safe, which is the most important. The live stock was moved to higher ground. The bee hives were placed on the porch.


The most embarrassing thing happened this week. I went out to breakfast with a bunch of ladies. We were having a meeting. First let me say that I was running late. My sister in law just brought me a bag of clothing for me to try on. I grabbed a really cute summery shirt and away I went. I really enjoyed myself, conversing with everyone even the waitresses, hostess and others on my way in and out. When I got home my husband said: "Did anyone buy you?" I was confused! He told me to go look in the mirror. When I did I saw a BIG $1 tag on my collar!~! Talk about having a first HOT FLASH! and the worst part was: NO one offered to buy me!
