Billy Goats

Hey there!  How are all y’all doing?  Fine?  Great!   Grab a glass of something cold to beat this heat, and sit down and relax a minute.  Especially if you’ve been out in the summer heat!   Remember – NEVER leave a child, pet or elderly person in a vehicle if it’s above about 72 degrees outside.  A car can heat up 30-40 degrees in under 15 minutes, even with cloud cover.  Okay, I’m off the soap box.  Oh wait – I’m gonna climb back on so y’all can hear me, lol.

My BFF has some acreage with pretty much the entire farm menagerie, minus a hog or sheep.  Continue reading



Hi there!   How are all y’all?   Hope everybody is doing well!   Grab a glass of tea or lemonade and find a comfy place.   How often in a day do we get so frazzled and overloaded that we forget something – something we wanted to pick up at the store, a phone call we wanted to make, a bill to pay or an appointment.  Sometimes we forget things that are really important over the long term, too.   This week I was thinking at one point and could not remember what my word for 2015 is.  I had to go back to the post and re-read it.  My word?  I laughed when I saw it.

Reckless Prodigal

Hey there!  C’mon over, grab a cuppa something hot and curl up someplace comfy.  I want to be really prodigal this year.  Sounds strange, huh?  Have you ever wondered what “Prodigal” meant?  You may have assumed, like I did, that it meant ‘wayward’.   After all, the story of the Prodigal Son in Continue reading


Hey there!  Fall is in the air, it’s a crisp day, so grab some cider.  Iced or hot, doesn’t matter, pick your favorite.  Now grab a comfy spot in the sun and relax.

This is the time of year for Halloween with all of its decorations, etc.  Time to put away the summer stuff and drag out the fall stuff.  Invariably, someone will have spiders as part of their fall decor; inevitably, I will start finding eight-legged crawly things in my house.  Did you hear me scream?  Continue reading

Backside of the Desert

Hey, y’all!  Hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  Hopefully you were able to relax and don’t need to come back to work today (Tuesday) to recover from it!  Grab your tea and get comfy and I’ll talk about something I mentioned in the last post. I called it the ‘backside of the spiritual desert’. Continue reading

Marriage and Education

I met my former husband at a Christian concert when I was a senior in high school.  One night as we were praying, he looked at me and announced that the Lord wanted to know when we were going to talk about getting married!

We were married, but it was hardly the fairytale I’d dreamed of.  There were problems literally from the wedding night.  I was 19, and had never been on my own; he was 23 and had been on his own since he was 15; he thought he knew everything.  Since he was the man, he was the head of the house, so what he said was how it was going to Continue reading

Welcome to the Adventure!

Welcome to my adventure!  I’m so glad you’re here.  Pull up a comfy chair, grab a cuppa something and let’s chat.

Quite a few folks have told me I should be blogging this life adventure I’m on, so I finally did it.  I hope to post on Tuesdays and Fridays for awhile.  I’m new at this, so we’ll see how it goes!  Oh- and do feel free to post questions and comments.  I’ll be happy to answer anything I can.  🙂

God deals with us as individuals- and I’m certainly Continue reading
