there is nothing quite as wonderful in this world than holding one of my grandchildren.

they are incredible and fantastic and the loves of my life.

I am a blessed woman.
🙂

to be so romantic

wouldn’t it be awesome to have a man be that romantic to say something so incredible to you?
🙂

so my husband said I need to sell my home before we can buy the one in the country.

who wants to buy my home?
it is a beautiful place with a pretty yard full of lilac trees and hostas

there needs a little TLC for the garage but over all it is a very nice place

Offers?
🙂

as I was driving into work this morning I saw the moon, no it wasn’t this red, but it was a bright orange and incredibly beautiful.

times like this I wish I had my camera attached to my hip so I could have taken a picture.
🙂

so last week I talked about needing a change.

that hasn’t left me.

I found a house in the country that would need tons of work but for the house and 3.5 acres of land it sits on they only want $62,000

if only I could talk my husband in buying it.

If only my youngest child had it all together to buy our house.
🙂

If only……….

🙂
No the house in the country is not a necessity.
I do have a very nice home.
But I have always wanted to live in the country.

always.

guess that comes from being a country girl when I was a child.
🙂

to be able to see my sunrises and sunsets every morning and night without anything blocking my view.

to have more rooms for the kids to play and Max to roam.

ahh….good thing dreaming is free……

saw this on face book and thought, how very true.
🙂

mountain cabin retreat

my sister suggested we get together for a week to a mountain cabin in Tennessee

I would love to do it.
I can’t do a week but I could do a long weekend.

sounds like great fun!

little things

                                                             

buy me a rose, call me from work, open a door for me, what would that hurt?
show me you love me by the look in your eyes.

these are the little things, I want most in my life……….

I wouldn’t go so far as to say I am in a mood, because for the most part I feel pretty decent today both physically and mentally.

I do long for something to be different.

I need a change and am not quite sure what that should be.

Oh I know I would love to change jobs, but honestly readers I can only imagine you are sick of that same old dance.

I need to find something to be passionate about.

I started drawing a few weeks ago and I am so bad at it, that it is laughable.

but still I would love to improve.

I would love to be a great drawer.

chances of that happening are slim, but it is fun to dabble in it every now and then.

my writing has become next to nothing.

I just can’t get it back, which I hate but still I refuse to write if everything is forced and uncreative.

I am so ready for fall.
Rather sick of sweating all the time.

even going to bed at night, I am sweating and it makes it hard to sleep

no I don’t have the air conditioning on simply because it costs so much to run it.
I may turn it on later in the week when we are supposed to hit mid nineties.

yuck!

I would so love to be standing here looking at this view.

It is in Alaska, and one day I vow to travel there.
Even if I have to do it alone

My ex-sister-in-law has been traveling over a year and I envy her that ability.

but she has no husband to keep her grounded and she is free to do as she pleases.

I’m not sure I would want to travel for a whole year but I would love to travel to different places and explore our country more.

ahh well, I have many blessings in my life and I need to focus on those and not dwell on pipe dreams.

too true

I wish I could erase some of the things I have said to people

I wish I could un-do some of the things I have done.

but learning from them, is a step in the right direction.
