wonderful rain

we had some wonderful storms last night and over night and this morning. we needed the rain so badly. I am thrilled that we got as much as we did. Now the sun is coming out to make it hot and humid. Yuck!

Thank God for Friday’s!

how I love my Friday’s. Love the idea of having the next two days off. Of getting to sleep later than four fifteen in the morning. 🙂 No great plans for the weekend other than breakfast with my husband’s sister and her husband and  maybe taking our grand daughters to the movie “Brave” sometime this…

family time

this next week I have my brother and his new wife and her kids, and his son and daughter coming to Iowa for a week. My niece is also coming from California. not that I will probably see a lot of any of them, but maybe there will be a gathering a time or two?…

4 weeks from today

Four weeks from today we will be Florida bound for the last time in a long time. We have gone to Florida so much that I think it is time to forget that state and move on to the many others we haven’t seen. my husband loves Florida, or should I say he loves the…

Dry

I can’t write. I have tried and tried and it has been months since I was able to do anything productive with my writing. I hate it. I so love to write and feel exceptionally great when it is like the words just flow from my finger tips. but alas….it is fleeting. I can’t find…
