The last day of October

Wow, it's just crazy how time flies. Can you believe tomorrow is the first day of November? Yes, Thanksgiving will be here before we know it!! We are already discussing where everyone will be sleeping, what we are having, what time we are going to leave for shopping that Friday. Yikes...the clock is moving way too fast. Although, as always, it's exciting!

As October quickly leaves us, the coldness in the air is quickly coming to us. Sweaters have been my best friend the last couple of weeks also cute boots. LOL...And cute high heels which are not really my friend after long days at school. I am looking for cute flats that will not kill my feet. I am a shoe crazy kinda girl. So, I really don't like ugly flats I like cute ones. LOL.... Okay enough about my fascination with shoes.

Speaking of being cold I caught a cold the other day. That's one thing about working with children. You can catch something so quickly but, I am feeling much better now.

Well, I really need to get off for now. I am sorry about how boring this post was. lol....Maybe I will have something much more interesting to blog about the next time I blog.

How Rude!!

Yesterday morning I was sitting with my friend who's husband was preaching. We both had our Bible's opened and listened to the preaching when all of a sudden I heard this very loud noise coming from behind me.

It took all my being not to look at my sister Carole who was in the back of the church running the sound booth, but I knew that would be too obvious. So I tried to concentrate on the sermon. I then heard it again, louder and more pronounced. That does it, I thought. I know what I am hearing, that is someone snoring. I looked at my friend, but she didn't seem to notice so I went back to the Bible.

A second later the snoring got about two more octaves higher.That's when my friend looked at me. When I looked at her I thought I would just about die from holding in my laughter.

The snoring person ended up not being from around here and left as soon as the service ended. I couldn't help thinking a pew is not the first place I would choose to take a nap!

A note for Julie

I know this is different but for a week now I have been trying to comment on Julie Jewls blog but each and every time I either loose my comment or can not even get to the place where I can comment.

So, Julie I wanted to let you know. I was afraid you might have thought I have stopped coming over to your blog. But I haven't I go on just as often I just can't comment!! Me and my mom did the word scramble but couldn't post the answers on your blog. Oh well.

I will still keep on reading your blog and hopefully whatever problem I am having I will figure it out and I can comment again.

Hold your breath...

I really have no idea how long this will last. My computer is going a little wacko on me and once in a while it freezes while I am using the computer. Then I have to turn the whole thing off and restart it. No, it's not fun at all. So you may ask why don't I use my laptop? That's a very good question. Well, I am trying to keep this one on as long as I can because it seems like the longer I am on the less the chance it will freeze on me. Strange yes, but, whatever!

So as you can see by the party pictures the whole thing was a great success. Every one had fun and Aaron had a great sixteenth birthday. The next day after church we still had some company over so they wanted to play football. But was one player short so guess who had to fill in?? If you guessed me you were right. LOL...a sight to see I am sure. Although, I did get four touch downs yes my new nickname is TD. lol...I have some "team" pictures to show off to you at a later time.

I am sure you have already notice that Wednesday is the last day I blog until Saturday, Sunday or Monday. Thursday and Friday are my busiest days so I probably won't blog again till this weekend. I just thought I would worn you for a change. lol

Great news though, we have a new van!! Thank you all who was praying for our car situation a month or so ago. It's a brown van the best part it has a CD player and in the back their is captain seats. lol.... Me and my sister Carole loves to recline. And yes we have some car pictures of us also that I will download into a post soon.

Okay, well, I really should end for now. Hopefully I will be able to post before it freezes again. You all have a great afternoon!

A Misunderstanding.

One sunny day a hunter went tromping through the muddy woods. His camouflage clothes blended nicely in the trees. Carefully he moved his brown boots one at a time until he reached a large rock. Sweat trickled down his forehead while he hugged his rifle closely to his chest, scanning the wooded area, trying to find some game.

Hours were flying by and his stomach was starting to growl, but, he didn't want to give up. Not yet...As six o clock turned to seven the sun started to set. His hat all of the sudden became a nuisance so with quick movements he took it off and wiped his damp hair.

As his watched read seven thirty, his pocket began to ring. Muttering something under his breath he quickly answered the phone. "Yeah?" He answered furiously as his eyes scanned the now dim area around him. "Boris what are you doing? The kids are starved and frankly so am I. How long does it take you to pick up meat at the market?"

The hunter said nothing for a moment as he heard his wife say something to their children. What did she mean the market, he thought. Didn't she say she wanted fresh meat? He said as much to his wife. "Boris what in the world are you talking about? The market had a sale on meat!! Where are you?" The hunter put his rifle down and leaned hard on his rock. He looked up to the now dark sky and then went back to his conversation.

"I will be home in about an hour. What kind of meat do you want?" "Never mind Boris. I'll order Pizza. Just come home." The hunter closed his phone and put it back in his pocket. He placed his gun over his shoulder and placed his hat back on his head. With a thought that he should have asked his wife to be more specific, he headed back to his truck.

As he drove off, heading onto the street, a large moose passed by with a slice of pizza hanging from his mouth. Yes, he thought, he needed to get home.

Many things to blog about...

My apologies for taking forever to post. I am sure you were getting pretty tired of looking at my soup bowl. lol...Although, you don't know how special you make me feel when you do check my blog often, hoping I have a new post. I didn't think I was that intriguing to read about.

So, thank you to all who wonder how I was doing. I am feeling a whole lot better except for the sneezing which I seemed to have adopted this morning. I am so stuffed up right now that I sound like Mickey Mouse.

The house is buzzing with excitement right now because my younger brother Aaron is turning the big sixteen this Wednesday. So, this Saturday we are having a football party for him. He's pretty excited. It looks and sounds like it will be a lot of fun to watch. I am sure I will have plenty of pictures to show you all.

Oh, in one of my previous post I had mentioned Courtney's blog and how on every Wednesday she has a game. Well since then a couple other blogs I check often have posted games. So, check out Mackenzie's and Julie's they both created games on their blogs and it was fun participating in both.

Well, I am going to end for now and go in search of a tissue.
Until next time.

I have been sick:( - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more I am sorry about not blogging but, as my title says, I have been sick. Yes, that means I wasn't able to go to school at all this week. Sigh....But I am feeling better now. Although, not up to a long post. The bug has attached itself to me and at the beginning I couldn't go to sleep at all! That's what usually happens when I am sick. So,my schedule has been totally off and I am still a little drowsy.Hope to be back and blogging soon!

It's after midnight...

So why am I blogging instead of sleeping you may ask. I am really not sure. I just went on the computer to check my mail, some blogs and such Okay one certain blog in particular.

Courtney has this great weekly post called Rhyme Time Wednesday where she changes the words from a popular song and you have to guess what the song is.

I was horrible at this at first, but I am getting the hang of it. When I can't get it I'll have my mom figure it out. LOL....So check it out. I know you will enjoy it.

My eyes are trying to stay opened and so I really should head for the bed. But I wanted to check in so I won't leave my faithful bloggers waiting for yet another post and have to make you read my last post over and over and over....okay I think you get the point!!

I hope every one has a great day tomorrow. Yes...I will try to post again tomorrow but like always, no promises!

I know you must have been shocked....

To see a post from me. I am sorry at my neglect of the blogging world, yet again. I don't have a real, great excuse like we got a major snow storm in the middle of October and we lost all power in the house. Or...I have found an abandoned baby in my yard and had to nurse it back to health. Or...a huge tree fell on my foot and I couldn't go on my computer because the agony was too great.

To be honest, as usual the last few days in the week were long and tiring days and when I got home I didn't feel like writing a post. Then I was not feeling well on Saturday and yesterday was Sunday and Sundays are always busy!

So, here I am now to grace the blogging world with my presence. I know must have been missed greatly!

I guess the biggest news of the week is my sister had to go to the hospital for a swollen eye. It ended up being an infection of the eye lid. Gross, I know! It's not contagious unless I wanted to poke my finger in her eye and then put the same finger in my own eye. But don't fear I have no desire to do such a

For the library, I have been reading a book from Lori Wick's English Garden series called "The Visitor." It's turning out to be a really good book. I have been enjoying it. Although what Lori Wick book do I not enjoy? lol...

I have an announcement to make. I have a desire to cook!! Before anyone goes to the media and reports this horrific crime. I haven't started yet! But....since working in the cafeteria at the school, I have found out that it's not all bad! Although, I only make the drinks, but, that is not the point! This fall air is really getting to me and I think I should make pumpkin pie, apple crisp and cherry cobbler. Any recipes anyone???

Okay, next on my agenda... knitting. What a calming sorda thing. Sitting by the fire in your living room in a cozy chair and knitting. Sigh....what a sweet picture. So I may start on some knitting. You never know I may be good at it.

LOL...I guess I should end for now.

Your Lunch! - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more A funny thing happened to me last Friday, on the way to school. After my ride came to pick me up, I waved good bye to my father who was at the door and climbed into the car. We started talking as soon as I got in and started up the street.

Out of habit I looked down at my feet and made sure I had my purse. I then looked at the books I brought and made sure I had the right ones. Then I realized my biggest fear had come to life...I had forgotten my lunch!

Thankfully, we were still on my street when I realized this. So we turned the car around and headed back to my house. All of the sudden I saw a very familliar van riding towards us. A frightening thing for sure. I almost thought I wouldn't be going to school after all, but instead, meeting my Creator. Yes, I am embellishing but stay with me.

Rushing toward us, driving like a maniac, still in the t-shirt he had slept in, was my father. He was waving my lunch out the window. I couldn't stop my smile as he pulled up next to us and handed me my lunch. After I caught my breath from laughing so hard, I thanked my dad for risking his life for my lunch!

BUT...between you and me, I think he was a tad bit disapointed that we had turned around. I think he wanted to chase us all the way to school!

Wonderful Moments!

Too late for a real long, exciting, rambling and heart wrenching post. So, I thought I would share a sweet moment that was captured a few weeks ago, while apple picking with my nephew Patrick.

Such a sweet picture, isn't it? Uncle Aaron and Patrick chatting while walking down the road.

Sisterly love.

Here's me and Carole being fools in the back of our van riding to church last night. If you look real close you can see our crazy younger brother in the way back. Here's our ice cream we ate together on Saturday night while watching TV and being crazy sisters in my room. We took a picture of both of us that night but I will spare you the scary results of two girls in their PJ's with no make up and hair not done.
Here's a better picture of me and Carole in the van riding to church.
Sisters are great aren't they? I am so blessed I have two!!
