I had this song in my mind all day….

My kids were singing the chorus to this song on the way to school this morning.  I have been humming it all day.  The lyrics are so powerful, so I thought I would post the song, so you can have it in your mind also. 🙂 I will stand……….. The Stand – Michael W. Smith…

6 word meme

My dear blogging buddy Beautiful Grace tagged me for the 6 word meme, that I have seen on several blogs lately. It’s a great concept……….6 words that would describe your life mission, goals etc. 6 words to describe yourself, tough isn’t it? “Chocolate lover, Laundry Hater, Family Lover, God Server”, well that is 8 words,…

Big decision…..

Nap or exercise? Check back later to see what I end up choosing 🙂 If you guessed exercise you are right! The nap was tempting, but it was a beautiful day. So I got on my ugly stylish orange biking shirt, and rode several miles out in the hilly, manure smelling farm country near my…

Bad Baseball game……

SportTman had a tournament 2 weeks ago. He did not play real well, he dropped a ball in centerfield that he should have caught, he didn’t hit real well, and he messed up a play at short stop, that ended with a run scoring. After the weekend tournament, I was thinking to myself things like;…

Hot dogs???

I used to be such a purist when it came to food I fed my family. I was always baking things from scratch using some whole wheat flour in everything I made. I made an array of delicious casseroles and special dishes for dinner. But now with the age of my kids and our current…

Welcome Spring!

Spring has finally arrived in our neck of the woods! I love spring and its beautiful flowers. To celebrate the arrival of spring I went around my house and took a bunch of pictures that represent spring at my house. So please pour a glass of lemonade, and enjoy a cyber spring day with me….

I almost missed it!

That’s right I almost missed my own blog anniversary! I knew it was last April I started my blog, so when I went to check today, I discovered today was the exact date one year ago I started my blog. Good thing I am on the ball with this type of thing! 🙂 I will…

Shocking Picture…….. :)

This picture may be too graphic for some…..it actually shows a brother and sister working together, happily, with no arguing to put a door on a fort. Shocking isn’t it? 🙂

My kids have gone retro!

“Moooooommmmm, check out this cool thing I found in the neighbor’s trash,” my daughter shouted out as she came in the house yesterday. ( The fact that she was digging in the neighbor’s trash is a whole other issue) She calls out, ” I think it’s called a typewriter…..why would someone want to throw something…

It’s the busy season!

Ah spring, fresh flowers, warm temperatures, green grass, the smell of manure on a farmer’s field….and the sound of the baseball hitting the bat! It’s officially here, our busy season! SportTman plays on 2 baseball teams, one is our local team the other an elite tournament team. This weekend is the start of the craziness,…

Wouldn’t it be great……

  If Oreo cookies, Rolo candy, chocolate cake with peanut butter icing, and Turkey Hill Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream sandwiches were good for you and had no calories! I have really been craving these items lately. So what item do you wish had no calories……let’s just dream for a brief moment! 🙂
