thought i would pop in and say howdy, how was all of your thanksgivings? mine was very hard but we made it through, although i swear my mil was there. i was whipping the cream when i tried to turn the mixer off some how as i lifted it up it came back on and OMGOSH whip cream EVERYWHERE, now you ask how i could possible explain how my mil was with me? well one year we were at my house and mom wanted to make divinity. she never could make that so i said alright. so as i was pouring the hot corn syrup and sugar into the pan, and mom was suppose to be doing the mixing, well i had said something and she didn't hear me and instead of shutting the mixer off and asking me again, she turned with mixer on and OMGOSh divinity EVERYWHERE. on the floor, ceiling, on the cupboards. counter EVERYWHERE, and talk about sticky cause its full of sugar and corn syrup. gosh have not made any since. maybe this year will make some. sitting here watching the seahawks getting their butts kicked. comeon guys you guys are better than this. darn it now i have to listen to my son and hubby driving me nuts.

need to get busy on christmas presents, i think after thanksgiving will take a entire day and just craft, i know i can get them done RIGHT???? ok so if i don;t is not the end of the world means more work next year lol.

what are you all up to, any special thanksgiving plans, anyone traveling on a big jet plane to go home or to grandmas house, sort of over the hill and thru the trees to grandmothers house we go. gosh i wish i could, this time of year i miss my loved ones who have gone to the other side sooo much, all i would like to do is sit down to my grandmas fried chicken mashed potatos and gravy and green beans,. oh the memories. i have alot more than that but won't bore you

today my little itsy got mad at me, i don't blame her really when i was giving her her can of cat food i accidently ahem dumped it all over her. OMGOSH was she mad at me, started meowing like i had stepped on her. so had to come in and open another can for her. then and only then would she allow me to pet her. little stinker, wasn't like i did it on purpose or anything.

well am off to clean house, just thought i would pop in and say howdy,. a great big shout out to robert , have missed ya my buddy glad your back around god bless ya all this day and keep those who are serving in the armed forces in your thoughts and when you sit down to yourbeautiful table using your best china or even paper plates and tv stands, remember those brave men and women who are giving up their thanksgiving at home se we may be free, to my marines i thank you and you will be getting a nice size b0x in a couple weeks well maybe 3 got to wait till payday to send besides gives me more time to REALLLLy stuff it full, god bless you all each and everyone of you. remember your blessings and if possible maybe reach out to those who are in need. every year we donate 25.00 to the rescue mission, that feeds 10 people on thanksgiving so little does sooo much. my wish for you all is you have a happy healthy day and enjoy all the good foods coming your way, but remember not to over eat or mr tummy ache will pop in and make himself known darn that guy, tums de tums tum as the commercial says, personally i like rolaids chewables lol ciao for now and remember i love you all

Today is Veterans Day Thank a Veteran

Today is veterans day, a day we are suppose to do much more than have off for a holiday, why is there a veterans day. let me tell you,

when this country was called to war for anything at any time there were some brave heros who answered the call, many people say not our fight. be it as it may, it is our fight , once americans are in danger. How do we thank them? well see its like this , when you see someone in uniform, ask them for a moment of their time and then respond to them in a positive manner. recently i was at the bank when a soldier from the army opened the door for me, his mother not only taught him to be brave but also to be polite, so after i walked thru the door i turned to him and said "sir, i just want to tell you how much i appreicate you and your families sacrifices, knowing that we remain free because of people like you and i for one am very thankful" his reply was " its my pleasure mam" now you tell me why i should not thank this man, i realize he chose to serve his country, after all but i still wanted to tell him that i he was appreciated. the military is one of the lowest paying jobs for young men and women and alot of time when they have children , they are on public assistance and get food stamps, yes they have their medical paid for but often have to wait all day to see a doctor sometimes as they can only go to a military hospital if thats the only medical they have

my point is if you are thankful for being free, thank a vet, not just you'll think about it DO IT say simply say thank you!!!! and god bless you all veterans for which we would not be free, as your sacrifces are not forgotten god bless america and all of you reading this

Did you vote?

today across this great nation people cast their ballots to change the laws of this land or preserve them depending on your point of view lol i personally voted with my heart and not all was a popular thing for all but it was my choice.

today worked around the house and then tonight got to talk to fran , jacqui, jean and my friend jessie whom i have missed lately. only problem i had was yahoo kept booting me off and i lost fran and jacqui. sorry my friends.

i also joined up to a new site over at kari and davids new site, the name is in my favorite places to blog, i was very happy to find that they decided not to close the board as i can only chat with a few people there, we all live such busy lives i know i love logging into my forums and see what my friends are up to.

weather here has been nice although chilly, not anywhere near what last years was, this time last year we had over 15 in of rain , this year we are actually dry wooot, not that i don';t like rain i do sometimes, but not when it makes me hurt so darn bad i can;'t see straight.

tonight i worked on the house for a while, did some laundry dishes ect. then sat and crocheted for a while. as some of you know i have a etsy shop and i FInally figured out how to tell you the name so here goes

i hope that is right if not will be back to fix it shortly lol

right now i only have 2 items in it a baby blanket and some realllly nice cashmere blended yarn. you will love it if you buy some but hurry i only have 7 skeins left till tomorrow when i am not quite so tired

(have to go to the doc tomorrow to get my meds refilled ) and thank the good lord its time as i am hurting and scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to my meds, need to reschedule so is not so long between visits i think. anyways i am tired and going to bed as soon as dd gets home and she is on her way, so until tomorrow comes i bid you all sweet dreams and lots of happiness and good health, may you all prosper in any way you choose. ciao for now

hot flash help

hey ya all i am going to give you some information that i found to be not only helpful but wonderful. as we all age we go thru changes , well thats me 50+ and having hot flashes, well my friend Fran over at told me about her herbalist and how she has a tonic that would help it, now me i am all for helping and especially naturally as i have problems taking meds that help with it like bc pills. well fran was kind enough to order me some and then i sent the doctor(and she is licensed) the money as soon as i got it, its called female serenity tonic and you take a few drops in a hot drink(i use tea as i am such a tea aholic)since starting this 2 weeks ago, i have had not ONE,. yup not one hotflash or flush as the docs call it. i did ask my reg doc about it and he said was fine to try so here is the link for ya all to chec out, btw you don't have to be going thru change as it is a tonic for all women, frans daughter and mother take it as does she. and it helps i know your thinking yea right??? but would i lie to you, i mean seriously take it as you would, but do so with a open mind and you will be suprised. take care and ciao for now

i highly recommend this site but make up your own mind.

ciao for now. hugs and blessings to you all and remember only you can support the troops. we all need to do our part. at least say a prayer or send good thoughts for their saftey. god bless ya ll hugs

what does it mean to you to be a american

As i look towards November 11th coming up i think even more about our men and women in uniform.both those who are serving this country, and those who have already given so selflessly of themselves, and their families, for all of you out there in cyber space (and where ever else this blog seems to be read)

i sit here in gratitude unlike any other you will ever know, for the men and women in uniform who died for this country so you and i can be free, so many people take freedom for granted.. what is freedom,

lets break it down

in some countries, if you speak out against the government, they behead you

in some countries, women and children are raped and mutilated because the tribal elders say its this way, would that happen in america<>its not suppose to. sometimes bad things happen but the law does NOT allow it

in some countries you

might have some dictator who decides that you looked at him wrong so your a spy(yes it does happen) then they execute you

in some countries the people don't have the right to say how they want the goverment to run, its all picked out by the good old boy system

in some countries people can NOT vote and it is useless to even try. won't happen

tomorrow is election day for some of you. in the consitutuion of the united states, we the citizen shall be given the right to life, liberty and the persuit of happiness. now and for always

tomorrow get out there and vote, tell your government how you want our country to be run, there are laws being made this way. get off your duffs and change this country back the way it use to be before so many evil and greedy people decided to make america THier america, . if you believe in our country post a bit and tell me how it feels to make a diff.

so for our veterans and those who are serving now i thank you and am deeply indebted to you for my freedom. and ya know something I LOVE AMERICA yes thats right i shouted it out for all to read, be proud of this country and make a diff if you can in someone life, you know the old saying its better to give than recieve. it is such a true statement,

for all my friends who are veterans, i thank you and salute you, for all of the men and women who are risking their lives in a country and region where americans are hated above all , i pray for your safetyyour sacrifices and your loved ones sacrifices also, may you soon be home each and every one of you home to live your life in freedom and love, god bless you all hugs to you all and my marines who i am in contact with all the time. i salute you thanks my friends.

its friday woooot

my favorite day of the week, much nicer than say a monday don't ya all agree. i got my machine and ya know something i have not had time to use it this weekend for dang sure . things are hectic around here. still cleaning house will probably take me till the end of nov to finish it enough for holiday entertaining. speaking of the holidays, i need to ask ya all something. as you know my sweet mil passed this last july 11th for some reason no one in the family feels we have the need to continue to celebrate holidays, is like the whole world revolved around her and i am so frustrated. fil won't leave his house, is afraid now that he will be robbed. odd he didn't think ANYTHInG of leaving mom there alone defensless. makes me angry , but i guess it don't matter now.

and hubby he says its going to be awful for HIM, what about the rest of us i ask, you don't understand he says. i who have lost my entire family except for brother and sisters don;'t understand? this hurts but i say nothing as i know he is grieving but dang it, we are important too. kids are pretty much the same way. don't feel like doing anything for thanksgiving, or christmas for that matter. and when asked why not i get because is not the same. i wonder if they would grieve this much if i died. seriously make me wonder. maybe i should go away for the holidays take a trip somewhere alone, but i don't have either the money or the energy to do it. maybe i will adopt a family instead. that way i could be helping someone and not so depressed myself
i understand its hard to get thru the firsts, first birthdays, anniversarys holidays ect. anyways just needed to vent thanks for reading and if you respond thanks for that too.

well today is a bright sunshiney day but cold. we had frost last night too, down in the 20's can we say brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

well am off to clean clean clean, gad i am sick of cleaning, i joined flylady though cause i so need some encouregmant and not getting it from my family , ya know its a sad day in our lives when we have to depend on others who we only know online to give us encourgment. sucks if ya ask me, not that i don;t love ya all , but my family is suppose to do be here for us. oh well life goes on, off my pity box today, this weekend will be the 3rd weekend in a row we have not had our date day on sat. i am getting a tad upset but can't force the issue and next weekend my lil sis is coming , i am so excited have not seen her since last christmas , even though we talk all the time its just not the same so thats why this weekend will work work work to make the house better. don;t ya wish you were samantha from bewitched, and could twitch your nose and instant clean. wow would that be awesome.

well am off to clean wish me luck, i hate house cleaning and wish i could afford a house cleaner. but alas not happening so is up to me to do the work, boy will i be glad when i see the doc next week and get my meds refilled am so low isn't even funny so am suffering now because i needed the meds then, life is a struggle for me knowing i have to budget them even when hurting so very badly, tell this to my pain filled body.

yesterday the trial wrapped up on a man and the companys who caused a poor woman to be permently blind and disfigured for the rest of her life. her name is maria Federici, here is a link on the story this poor woman has gone thru hell literly and they are trying to place the blame on her. just ticks me off,

kk on now to say ciao i will be back tonight and hope ya all have a wonderful day ciao and god bless hugs too from me to you, bye for now
