Chit Chat

Okay, it's been a couple of weeks since I have posted anything.  I have really been missing my mother and I have been in "slow-mo".  I am sure as time goes on the ache will lessen...

We are on the final count of school!!!  TEN DAYS LEFT!!!  We are out officially the 18th of May.  I am in so much need of a break.  I do really well until after lunch then I crash!  I am certain it is due to eating carbs.  I love bread, good bread that is, and I love making homemade calzones and pizza's.  I love the fact that for about $17 I can get five pounds of pepperoni at GFS!  LOVE IT!  I really need to change my diet.  But pizza is a weakness, so is fried chicken, pasta, hamburgers,...

I can not believe the price of gas!  It is over $4 a gallon!  Maybe because it is close to the Indy 500 and there has got to be a profit in someone's pocket!  Anyway, a real good friend sent me this cartoon via e-mail!  I am almost thinking it would be the way to go!

Hubby filled up the van yesterday with gas, he found it for $3.759--a real bargin!  It cost him $110 to fill it up--it won't a the week.  (we drive a 15 passenger van with no hopes of downsizing any time soon!)  We really need a second vehicle that is better on gas!

I trust your day is filled with many wonderful things and you are able to enjoy the spring where you live!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
