For the Random………for the life of me I do not get why anyone reads my blog. I skip from subject to subject, I never give you a recipe, I never show you how to paint a room or grow beautiful flowers. I could not sew anything if it depended on my life, I am not a public speaker nor do I constantly give you a Bible lesson. I am not a fitness guru (though I sure would love to lose 20 pounds) and I am NOT a great hostess. I am not anything that most blogs are known for. I use run on sentences, I write exactly as I think (which is not always a good thing) BUT when I Was looking at my dashboard for something else tonight I realized between my two blogs I have over 1350 followers…and I have written 358 posts. Unbelievable!!!!!
My head ELf, Terri helped me clean out my shops, as in we spent 40 hours. It was a job that had not been done in 11 years.
I have had a relapse from whatever I was sick with early last week…FLU I think, as in I have been in bed most of the day.
but it was very DUMB of me to take on a huge project like my shop so soon after being sick. So because of running fever, I had to miss Jack’s party today. SAD.
BUT The SHOP LOOKS AMAZING.
thanks so much Terri, now you need to blog
when you look at the birthday pictures below, you will see that Jack is doing GREAT….He looks healthier every week. He is working so hard, has lost 50 pounds and all HIS blood work looks great. 17 weeks ago yesterday he was in Baylor Hospital fighting for his Life.
The Winner of the Book UNSHAKEN is PATTY at My MOUNTAIN BLESSINGS! Hope you will stop by and visit her.
One of my dearest and oldest Friends has started a BLOG….It would make me
so Happy if you stopped by and said HI. Her name is Diana (Dinah) and grandmother is her passion too. Our husbands coached together for many years. She lives in Magnolia, Arkansas and you will love her stories.
So, What’s The Big Deal? is her BLOG.
so many bloggers are going through hard times right now. Pick one special one and encourage that blogger this week….with some snail mail.
That’s my goal this week to send several little gifts to some dear friends that I have met in blog land.
Jack and I watched Secretariat this afternoon. A great movie, but brought so many memories of my DAD. He owned race horses all his adult life…so the track was a place I have spent some time.
The cutest birthday pictures ever….(you can see them better on the holiday blog)well maybe I am a tad partial. I had to get someone to make them for me as I was sick…running fever and decided the best thing for me and the little's was to stay home. Sad, but know it was the best thing.
POP AND GRAYSON
I don’t think you need any script on the pictures. As you can see in the pictures Jack (Pop) is doing good. You can also see that my adult kids are just big kids.
You can read the picture titles in their faces. TOY STORY MANIA and Jack LOVED EVERY MINUTE of IT.
Just came in the mail from Amanda
Wow do I love this BOY…..
I would really love to ask all my readers to send JoAnne and her family a card every week. They have a long hard road.
You can send them to her sister Kristen (who is a fab writer) at Joanne Heim c/o Kristen Haufschild, 11004 Grayledge Circle, Highlands Ranch, CO 80130.
