AFTERMATH…SEPTEMBER

Standard

Never can remember a September like the one our country had this year. I mean you name it, we had it. Earthquakes, Fires, Floods, Hurricanes,Tornadoes, Drought, threats of war,and suffering. Every time you turned on the computer or tv you would hear another disaster. So many hurricanes we lost track of the names of them.Fires were all over the western U.S.,and shamefully, all but forgotten when a HUGE hurricane hit Texas named HARVEY. Damage not seen like it since the Hurricane Katrina era. Then another Hurricane Irma and Florida was hit and a massive record breaking exodus north by millions. Again..we had not got back on our feet before MARIE hit many islands including our U.S. Island of Puerto Rico.Wiped out whole countries,and left everyone devastated. WHAT IS HAPPENING? Is the global warmth helping these disasters.WELL we can debate, no one controls the weather.Makes me wonder about what winter will bring, and what will happen next?  Our local September ending breaking all records for heat. INTENSE heat that closed schools which had no air conditioning. Pretty much unheard of before. Whatever we get we will have to deal with and try to move on. My thoughts and prayers go out to those who are affected across the US and Puerto Rico and beyond. GOD help us all.

Standard

The Sept. 12 telethon will take place simultaneously in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville, and will be aired by all the major networks for one hour, according to TMZ. The star-studded event is reportedly being organized by rapper Bun B and the same team behind the widely praised Ariana Grande One Love Manchester concert. 

Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton will reportedly host from Nashville on Sept. 12, while the Los Angeles portion will be hosted by Foxx and tentatively Hilary Duff, who was born in Houston. 

Duff Instagrammed about Hurricane Harvey on Monday, writing, “This is beyond devastating. Truly heartbroken for my home town. #staystrong #deepintheheart.”

BREAD…CAN WE TALK..?

Standard


IT’S SO HARD… . I quit bread.. something I love.. I mean L O V E…WHY?It’s not a gluten thing I  just don’t need those carbs..I quit sandwiches, I quit cornbread with butter, toast, hamburgers, subs,

 

OH MYYYyyy it’s tough… I mean it. I try to not think about it.. I mean HOT biscuits with butter or honey or gravy.. ACKkkkkk   I heard Oprah say.. I LOVE BREAD.. well I feel her pain. Especially when you don’t have it any more. You think maybe I will sneak just a roll or just a slice.. NOooo that leads to my weakness..can’t do it. I do have a few slices of bread in the freezer in case someone comes and wants a sandwich but NOPE not eating it. It has helped me for sure to cut this out. 

I avoid places where I can smell it baking.. Subway and that fresh bread smell at the grocery bakery. It’s like a real killer… BINGE.. nope I have been happy not to do that.. SO FAR 
They do say though, if you cut one thing out of your diet you will crave something else.. 
Wellllllllll…
Winter will come soon and then it will be 
COOKIES!!! 
OH NOOOOOO!!
 

JULY 2017..WHAT’S UP??

Standard

 

 

WELL I made it to my 66th birthday! Never thought I would get this old.  I sure don’t feel that old. I look in the mirror and see someone I don’t recognize any more. WHAT happened?? Where did the time go? 

Boy, I can’t remember how many times I have said that.. daily living seems to be speeding up these days with all the technology we have. I find myself wanting it to slow down. Guess I am just an oldie but goodie..yep I just started TEXTING instead of calling so much. It’s free on my cell so why not? Got to save that money… all the time!! Now deciphering the darn texts now that takes some practice. LOLI enjoy watching the old tv shows on several networks, takes me back to the good ole days. We had no worries about how our government was going. It was a much simpler time. Spending time with a 2 month old baby sure will set your mind to racing. How glad you are that you are NOT going through all that again, but sure enjoy handing them off to the parent and going back to your nice peaceful home. AMEN!   Well enjoy your JULY before we know it we will be complaining about the leaves in our yard and the snow that is coming.

MY HOW TIME FLIES!!           

 

SHE IS HERE!!

Standard

 Our family have anxiously awaited the birth of this little bundle of joy. She is a doll and reports are she has blue eyes. Neither parent has blue eyes but her grandmother and great grandmother both have, had them.

LILY MARIE was born on MAY 8th at 7:55 AM…she weighed 7lbs and 2 oz. She was born on my late mother’s birthday and that made several of us very happy. Mom would have been thrilled to have another girl in the family.

 

Big Brother Theo (almost 6) first time meeting his new sister. .”wow, are we taking her home?”He wanted to hold her right away but they told him he would have to wait. I think he will be a great big brother.
