Can you believe

Can you believe this year is almost over. The time is going so fast anymore. I don't know if it's because i'm getting older or what.

Hubby's back is feeling better. Still hurts some but doing alot better!!!!

Winter is back. The wind is really fierce out there. They are calling for 40 mile gusts today. And when i looked out the window is seen snow flurries. And the other day is was in the 60's. This weather has been so crazy.

Not doing anything for New Years eve. Just staying home and watching Dick Clark. That man just keeps going. Even after all that has happened to him. I remember always saying he never changes. And never gets grey. LOL Boy, but i'm sure getting grey. Need to go to get the hair cut and colored. I have the gift cards but haven't made it yet. It's always that my hair looks so bad and needs cut but then when i do get it cut i never like it. I think that is what scares me about going and i always put it off. LOL Oh, well.

Well I hope that everyone has a very good and safe New Year's eve and that your New Year is all that you what it to be. Good health, Love, and wealth. Enjoy your loved ones and friends and ring in the New year....

Happy New Year

It's all over

Hi all

Hope you enjoyed your Christmas holiday. Alot of work but well worth it. Went to my son's for dinner, and it was very good. There were around 21 people in his little apt. but it was so nice.

On Christmas eve morning my husband was getting ready for dialysis and i told him that it was icy out so be careful. So he was headed out to the car and he seen it was just raining so didn't think about it. Well he walked out onto the porch and ended up on the brick sidewalk on his back. I had my grandson with me and i heard my husband yell. We ran out and there he was on his back. And it was really raining. I helped him up and he said his back hurt. I asked if he wanted to go to the ER and he said no. He went back into the house and changed clothes and left for dialysis. They wanted him to go have it looked at but he said no. Well around 6 pm on Christmas eve he said he wanted to go to the ER. So that is where we were until around 10:30. They did x-rays but said he didn't brake anything. He just sprained it and badly bruised it. He could barley walk on Christmas day but still went to our sons for dinner. So i have to go with him to dialysis so i can drive him.

It's only 23 degrees out this morning. Burrrrrrrrrr!!!!!
Have a wonderful day and i bet the stores will be worse than black Friday today. Don't want to go there. LOL

What a difference a day makes

It's Monday morning and is sooooooo cold and windy...It was -2 last night with the wind chill. They said we were getting 35 to 50 mile wind gusts. And it's still windy out. It's 6 am, couldn't sleep so thought I'd get up. This weather sure has been crazy!!!!

Went over to my daughter's house on Saturday evening to look at her Christmas decoration's and she cut my granddaughters curls off. She had pretty long natural curly hair and my daughter said it's easier to take care of without the curls. It was down to her butt and now a little past her shoulders. I couldn't believe it.

Talked to my grandson last night. He was all excited that the Redskins won..He's into video games. He's only 8. My daughter has spoiled him so much every year at Christmas and now this year money is tight and he's not getting as much. And that really bothers her. But that is all her fought. This boy has a Wii, Playstation 3, PSP, and she bought him an X box 360 for Christmas. He doesn't play with normal toys that an 8 year old would play with and never has.

Well today i'm going with hubby to dialysis and then we are going to pick up the tickets i won from the radio station to see Jeff Dunham. He's just the funnest ventriloquist. Supposed to see him on Jan. 2 if all goes good. And i'm up so early i'm going to be so tired when i get home today.

Well enjoy your day!!! The big day is almost here. Don't work to hard finishing up all you have to do to get ready for Christmas.

It's Friday

Well it's friday. It's raining cats and dogs. So glad its not snow or we would be covered. LOL....

But sunday is a different story. They are calling for snow and ice.. We might even get a white Christmas and it's not winter yet. Winter come's in Sunday...I know there are alot of you getting snow. Please be very careful if you have to go out. There are always some people out there that think they can drive through anything and that's what causes the wrecks..

I heard on tv today that a 94 year old grandma that buy's scratch off lottery tickets. When into the store and bought some and said she didn't win and gave them to the cashier to throw them away. He checked them over for her and said you won. It was a million dollar ticket. That was so nice of that cashier to hand it back over to her. Must be nice. What i could do with a million dollar's. I could help out so many people. I would love to do that. Oh, well.......maybe someday!!!

Have a wonderful day and be carefull

Very Blessed Day

I had went for my stress test and the doctor said it went good except when they did the pictures of my heart. He said he had seen a shadow at the bottom of my heart. He told me that i might not be getting enough blood supply there. So he scheduled me for a heart catherization.

Today was the day for the heart cath. I was so scared that i might need a stent in my artery's. I had this done 4 years ago by the same doctor at a hospital in the city that is an hour and a half away. Supposed to be a very good hospital. Well the time came and the doctor did the heart cath and said that he didn't see anything and that my arteries looked the same as they did 4 years ago, wide open. I was so happy. I was very blessed today!!!!! What a wonderful Christmas gift. Now i just have to take it easy for the next 2 days becasue they go into your main artery in your groin area. And they don't want it to open back up or get infected. And i'm back home already. Left here at 7;30 this morning and back home by 5.. Just wanted to give you my good news.

Happy holidays

Hugs and blessing

Good Saturday Morning

Good morning.. I hope everyone is doing great today...I looked out the window and we got some snow last night. Just enough to make it pretty and not enough to make things bad. So that's just fine with me. They are saying we might even get a white Christmas which i can't remember the last time that happened. That would be pretty.

My Christmas book and Gingerbread men didn't sell so i've relisted them to go off on Monday. And my snowman goes off monday too. I think i'm going to try to start on some valentine things and also everyday things. Was even thinking of starting a selling blog in a few months.

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend and the weather they are having.

Look what I woke up to

Got up this morning and went out to the kitchen to make some coffee and looked out the window and there they were......I had to do a double take...

There they laid in my back yard. 2 big labs. One black and one brown. I went and got hubby and at first he thought it was deer. I said can we keep em....... LOL....He said nope!!!! Then i didn't know what to do. So i text my daughter and told her about them and that i seen a collar on the one. She asked if they had tags and i told her i don't know. She said go look. I told her what if they bite. So she told me to take out some dog food and feed them. So i took out some dog food. Got on the steps of my deck and the big black one started grawling. So i showed them what i had and they came right over. So i fed and watered them and checked for a tag but there wasn't any. Now what should i do. The neighbor came out and said they had been there for a little while. I told him I'd call the radio station so they can see if anyone owns them. And i told him I'd call the animal shelter and he said i wouldn't call them. They might not find there home and then get rid of them. So i went in and call the radio station and they put it out over the radio. Went back out and gave them more food and water. Then called the animal shelter just to see if anyone called them and they said no. So then i went and looked out the window and the one dog was laying on my deck and the other one in the yard. Then i thought, now what. So i called the vet's office down the road and the woman there was all excited and said the owners had been calling them. Wow....She told me there names and gave the owners my number. A few min. later the owners called me and she said they were missing since the night before. And they couldn't find them. When the woman came to get the dog she was crying and started hugging me and thanking me. She was afraid someone would keep them and she would never see them again. She said they are very old and have arthritis. She said she has another dog at home and it was carrying one of the labs toys around all night last night. Well problem solved. So happy they are back home. I couldn't of not done anything. It's been too cold out for them.

Have a wonderful evening

It's Finally Friday

The weather here in the Northeast is getting colder and they are calling for snow over the weekend. Sounds like good craftin weather.

I put 2 new items on ebay last night. Take a peek....

Was looking out the back window and seen the man next door cutting up a deer he must of gotten. He always gives us some deer bologna. I really like that. Not much on deer meat though. Hubby likes it. Maybe i just don't fix it right. LOL They say it's better for you.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday.

Almost the weekend


Well hubby is still really sick. He didn't eat at all yesterday. Finally have a doctor appt. for him tonight at 4:30. He's been in bed for 2 days. I'm just hanging in there.

I have been thinking alot since the New Year will be here soon. What New Years resolutions I'd like to try this time.

What i come up with is i want to start eating healthier and loose some much needed weight. I'd also like to get alot of these bills paid off and get my life straightened out.

So what does everyone else have in mind for the New Year.

Cloudy and cold today. Calling for maybe some snow this weekend.

Have a wonderful day....

What a day its been. My husband and i both have caught a cold. He's feeling much worse than me. He's been in bed all day. He didn't even make it to dialysis today. And he was supposed to have a stress test tomorrow and i had to reschedule that.
I have been trying to finish up on 2 Christmas crafts that I have been working on for a while now. Then when I went to take pictures, my battery in my camera was dead. So i had to recharge the batteries.
Now it's to late to put them on Ebay so i guess that will have to wait till Thursday night. But I'd like to show you what I've done.

This one is my Christmas book made out of a real book.

And this is the gingerbread men that i made.

So hopefully tomorrow they will be listed.

Have a wonderful evening!!

My brother and sister in law, my brother, daughter in law and my niece, and my better half, my hubby john. And we always have my ex-husbands father. My ex-husband, the kids father, passed away 4 years ago. My ex-father-in-law has been coming to my house for thanksgiving every year since.

We had so much food. And it was all yummy!!!!!!! I hope everyone had a very nice Thanksgiving with family and friends.

Day before Thanksgiving

Good Morning everyone

Well it's the day before the big day!!!!! Yum-O Turkey!!!! Well still have some cleaning to finish up and going to do alot of cooking today. I'm going to try to put my turkey in the oven tonight and let it cook all night. I've never done that before but i seen it on Rachael Ray show. So I thought i'd give it a try and that way it would free up the oven for tomorrow. Sure hope it works. Don't want a burnt turkey for Thanksgiving. Oh my!!!! Good thing my BIL is bringing ham.....

I remember my daughters first turkey dinner. She call me after 6 hours of cooking this small turkey and said it's still not done. We were going there for dinner so we just left a little early and went to see what was wrong. When i got there she had the turkey with the breast down. Which now I have heard of others doing that. And i told her she had it upside down for one thing. I guess the real problem was the oven. It was like 3 more hours and the turkey finally was done.

I wish that everyone have a safe and happy Thanksgiving and to give thanks.

The big day finally here. LOL

Well as i posted before. I went for my pap smear last monday and was only a week early. LOL So i had my appointment today. Well the doctor i used to have left the business because of all the high insurance rates and things. He was the best. I didn't mind going there for my test.

So this other doctor that i'm seeing now took alot of his patients. This doctor everyone says is so well liked. I have only seen him one other time. And everything seemed good. He is in the process of moving his practice to a larger medical facility. And today was the last day at this address.

Well, when they call you back you go and sit in his office and he talks to you. Ask how things are going and all that stuff. He asked when i quit smoking and I told him 5 or 6 years ago but I think its been longer, can't remember. Getting old. LOL. Then he asked how my uterus was and different things about it and i said good. He was looking over my paper work and then said lets get you a sonogram to. So i said fine and they do that in his office. He said don't want to operate if we don't have to. And then i'm thinking something must of been wrong with my last test or something wrong in my papers.

So he took me to another room and had me put on the paper gowns. Just love those things. Then when your ready you turn on the light so they know to come in the room. Well he was the only one that came in. The doctor i went to before always had a nurse in there with him. And she would talk while he did what he had to do. So this doctor does the pap smear and still no nurse. Then he pushed on my belly and said your uterus feels good. And i said that's good. Then he said let me go get this person to do the sonogram. So i laid there and waited.

Then this man came in the room and got in a drawer under my table looking for something. Uncomfortable feelings. And then a nurse came in. Then they both walked out. Then they came back in and i'm thinking what the H*** is going on. So they set up the sonogram which is an internal one so that was uncomfortable. They turned the lights out and he started doing the sonogram and the nurse leaves the room. So now i'm alone with this man. And he's doing what he has to do and keeps looking at my paper work. And then looking at the sonogram.

Then he asked me if i had just got married and i said no. And then he asked if my name used to be Black and i said no. Then I asked him, do you have the wrong person. He said your paper is on top of someone else paper is stapled to your paper. He said we are in the process of moving and the papers must of gotten mixed up. Today was the last day they were at that address. He said let me go talk to the doctor and see what he says. He left and came back with the doctor. The doctor said i'm sooooo very sorry. Your paper was mixed up with someones elses, and we are in the middle of moving. He said you don't need a sonogram. So i got dressed and the teck said what i seen your uterus looks good. And i won't charge you for the sonogram. I thought i know your won't charge me. So now i'm so glad this Pap smear is done.

So i'm good for another 2 years. I'm so glad. I dreaded this and it didn't get any better. LOL

Thanks for listening.

This is funny

I have been worried, well maybe not worried just hating the fact of going for my Pap test all weekend. I knew today (Monday) was the big day. Yuck. Just really don't like doing it. Had to drop hubby off at dialysis and then headed over to the doctors. I knew i was a little early but what's new i always am.

Well i went in and there was a young man working at the front desk. He had me fill out all my paper work. And then told me to go sit down and they would be with me shortly. So i did what he said. About 10 minutes later a lady peeked out of the front desk and said you are early. I told her yes i know but i was in the neighborhood. She said no you are a week early. OMG i was so embarrassed. She said your appt. is next monday. I knew it was monday but thought it was this monday on the calendar. So now i have to wait till next monday and go through this all over again. LOL

So i apologized and stuck my tail between my legs and left. LOL I know to check the next time. LOL

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

A nice fall saturday

Wow the weather is sure a changin. Cloudy and cooler, and the leaves are still fallin. I do love the fall colors. Soon the tree's will be bare and they will be a big chill in the air. Hopefully not much snow this year.
Thought i'd take a brake from cleaning this craft room up. Sure wish it was bigger or better organized. How does everyone else organize there craft rooms. It gets so messy so fast and then i don't feel like doing anything. There has to be a way!!!!!
Trying to clean the whole house up really good before Thanksgiving which is coming really fast. Can't wait for turkey and all the good things that goes with it. My daughter is having Thanksgiving at her house on the Sunday before and then i am having it on Thanksgiving day. We will be all turkeyed out. LOL
Well guess i'd better get back to work. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Good Thursday morning

The weather here in Maryland has been really mild lately. In the 60's. I can handle that. But they are saying this weekend it will be changing. I guess winter is on its way.

The election is finally over and we have a new President. I pray that there is Change like he said. We need to come together and make this a better place to live and work.

Before we know it, it will be Thanksgiving. Yum, Turkey and all the dressings.

I hope all is well and enjoying this day.

Had my mammogram done

Well went to get the mammogram done today. Went through all the stuff with the squeezing part and went back out to wait while they looked at it. And waited and waited. Then the woman came out and said we need another picture so back in to get another one and then back out into the waiting room. And all that brought back memories of 14 years ago when i had it done and went out into the waiting room and they came out and said we need another picture. All those bad thoughts went through my head again today. Oh no not breast cancer again that's all i could think of. People were coming in and getting there's done and back out. I hate the waiting. It's the worse part. And the squeezing didn't even hurt as bad this time. Then finally the lady came out of the x-ray room and said your doctor will get a report in about 2 weeks. Every thing looks good. And then i asked her again. Is everything ok. She said yes and you won't have to come back til next year. What a sigh of relief. That was so scary. But everything went good. So i hope everyone has had there mammogram done or have scheduled one. It's better to be safe than sorry. I can't stress enough how important it is.

Thursday, October 23, 2008


Well tomorrow's the big day. Time for the yearly boob squeezing test. Wish me luck. It's really not that bad. I can tolerate it. Just praying that it comes out good.

Chilly Sunday

Wow has the weather changed. Alot cooler out only in the 50's and they are calling for frost tonight. I don't like it. I can't wait for spring. I'm not a cold and snow person. LOL

Finally downloaded a picture of my granddaughter:


And here's one with her acting goofy"


She is so sweet when she's at my house but as soon as her mom comes to pick her up she turns into a different kid. She's 4 and is in pre-K and really likes it.

Also snapped a picture of the dog and kitten. The dog is 11 and the kitten is 6 months. Usually the kitten is driving the dog nuts. And believe me i don't see this much.

Beautiful Tuesday

Hi everyone

Went for a scooter ride today. The weather is awesome. But by the weekend it's supposed to turn colder. Went past the gas station and the gas price was $3.05..Finally coming down some. Sure wish the grocery prices would come down. I had my granddaughter over the weekend. She is so good. Until her mother showed up to picker her up. Turned into a different kid. Wow...Took her to church on Sunday and she was afraid to go to the childrens class so she stayed there with us. And was the best ever.

I will post some pictures of her later.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

Just had to share what i got today

The door bell rang and when i went to see who it was. I was shocked. This is what the man was holding.





Was i all flabbergasted. LOL

It is edible fruit. Here is what the card said.

Congratulations to you for being a 14 years survivor. I thought i would send this instead of flowers because you can eat this. By the way thanks for giving birth to me 22 years ago today. I love you mommy.

My son thought of me on his birthday. He's the best. Couldn't ask for any better. And it tastes so good. There are strawberrys that are dipped in pink chocolate. To die for....The cup that it is in is glass with a pink ribbon....

just wanted to share.

Warm Day

Today was a beautiful day. This afternoon hubby and i decided to take the scooters and go pick up a few things at the grocery store. We were headed down the road toward the store. This road has 2 lanes going the same way. I heard John blow his horn and went to look in my rear view mirror and there was this big SUV about 10" from me in my lane right beside me. Scared me to death. He was in a big hurry and went around this other car and then into my lane. That is what John told me. He was riding behind me. If John wouldn't of blown his horn i might of moved over a little in my lane and he would of hit me. People are getting so crazy these days. They need to watch out more for scooters and motorcycles. When we got to the store John said he about had a heart attach watching that SUV almost hit me. There was a man on a Harley motorcycle when we came out of the store and started talking to us. And we talked about that and he said people have been like that to him to. He said it's getting scary on the roads.

Other than that it was a nice day. The rest of the week is going to be warm and nice. This will probalby be the last of that and then the cold will come in. Sometimes i wish i lived south. And then i think about the weather there, hurricanes and all. I guess there is no place that's nice all year long. I guess i can dream.

Talk later.

Maybe after the time change things will get back to normal. The weather man said it going to warm up next week. My son's birthday is coming up on Friday. He will be 22. Wow to be that age again.

Have a wonderful evening

Today was a lazy day. Didn't do much at all. My son and DIL stopped by. Watched football today. Saturday my grandson was over and we went to the Harvest hoedown. They have a few craft seller, food, games for the kids, music, build your own scarecrow and purple cow patty bingo. Yep, cows painted purple. The tickets for that was $5.00 each and all the money went to the food bank. They had 3 prizes one of $250.00 one $500.00 and the big prize was $1000.00. They painted these squares on the ground and let three cows out and if the cow pooped on your block you win. Yep i never heard of it till then. It took a while for the cow's to do anything. So everyone just stood around waiting and watching. It was really funny. They missed my block by 1.


That's one of the purple cows. LOL You can see the squares on the ground.

Here's a picture of my grandson, hubby and daughter in law making the scarecrow. My grandson is in the red shirt, hubby and daughter in law in the white shirt.


Here's a picture of my grandson and the scarecrow he made on the scooters.


My grandson Logan and my hubby John fixed the scarecrow on the scooter and then sat it at the end of the driveway. People were riding by laughing. so that's what i did on Saturday. So the weekend wasn't to bad. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

The weather is really cooling down now. And fall is really in the air. Won't be long before the leaves start falling. I can't wait to get started on another project.

Hope you all have a wonderful evening.

September is almost over

Wow I can't believe this month is almost over. It will be Christmas before we know it. It's supposed to cool down now. In the 60's starting tomorrow, but i guess it fall so that's the way the weather goes. Don't mind that if the sun is shinning. My poor little kitten got neutered today. He's sleeping now. I know he's not happy about it but it's better for him. He's really growing and loves to run through the house. At least the dog got a little break from him today. He is always chasing her around. LOL

Can't believe i did it.

Today i got my first tattoo. I'm 51 and finally did it. I get mixed emotions about what i did but i got it as a symbol of my breast cancer. It wasn't too bad. It did hurt some but was tolerable. Not like the pain of childbirth, that really hurt. LOL Talking about childbirth i had my last two children natural and without pain meds.

The weather has really changed. It was cooler today and they are calling for rain these next coming days. The leaves are starting to turn and some are falling off already. I'm not ready for winter.

So here is a picture of my tattoo.

I'm watching survivor while surfing the net.

Have a good evening

Tonight i am going to put my pumpkin on ebay. Worked really hard on it.


Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

September 11

I remember that day. My hubby and i were in Daytona Beach FL. Celebrating our anniverary which is Sept. 13. We were getting ready to go to Disney and i was watching tv. I seen the plane go into the towers and just couldn't believe it. And then another plane. I was so scared. I yelled for my hubby to come look..He was at all to. We couldn't stop watching the news.

So today lets have a prayer for all the families that have lost someone to this terrible tradgey. To all the fire fighers, police, and everyone else that helped that day. And pray that this will never happen again. And to all our soldiers fighting to keep us safe.

Working on my blog

I've finally decided to start sewing again. Summer is winding down and fall is just around the corner. I love being outside. And didn't feel much like crafting. I don't want to be cooped in all summer when i'm stuck in the house all winter. It will be nice when i can open the windows and let the house air out. Not happy about seeing winter come with the high price of fuel oil. This winter we will just have to bundle up. LOL I'm learning more and more blogging with help and trail and error. But its coming along. We got alot of rain again today but really need it. so it was welcome.

Rainy Saturday

Today was a dreary day. Rained most of the day. The hurricane from the south moved up the east coast but we only got the rain and a little wind. Hurricanes and tornados scare me to death. I don't know if i could live where they get alot of them.
I have been working on the deck the last few days trying to get it stained before winter. Got alot of it done and now it's raining so tomorrow i'll see how much more i can get done. The sun is supposed to shine on Sunday and Monday then rain again on Tuesday.
The kitten that i had gotten a while back is so packed with energy. Just tires me out. But when he's sleeping he's so cute. LOL
Well thanks for listening to me go on and on.

A beautiful Sunday

It was beautiful out today. The sun was shinning and not so hot as it has been. My son is getting married on 8/8/08 so hubby tried his suit on and the pants didn't fit. So we had to go and get one's that did. To much eatin i think. LOL I'm trying to get things done for the wedding. So much to do. But it will all work out in the long run. My kitten is doing good. I want to get him fixed when we can. I want to post a picture of him to. But everything is put on hold until after the wedding.

new kitten

There was this cat that came by my house one day. I tried to get him to come to me but he wouldn't. I didn't have any cat food so i had a can of crab meat. I opened it and he finally came to me. He ate it all. My hubby said don't feed that cat he wouldn't leave. But i did anyway. He was skinny and hungry. So i tried to get him to come into my house and hubby said don't let him in the house he will never leave. Well long story short he came into the house and never left. He was the best cat you could ask for. He didn't use a litter box, he would go to the door and meow when he wanted out. He didn't get on the table or counters. And was so friendly. My dog even got along with him. But one day while going into the field across the road from me he was hit by a car. That was so hard for me. He passed instantly.
So after almost 6 months i went out and got a kitten. He's so cute, only around 11 weeks old. They weren't sure at the pet store how old he is. He gets in bed with me everynight and gets into my hair. He kneads it with his paws and purrs so load. I haven't figured out yet why he does that. But he's just to darn cute.....
