Entertainment in the Country

No bright lights and city life for us out here! So what did we find ourselves mesmerized with tonight? Picture it. There we were. The FisherMan, me, The GuitarMan, a good friend of his with her zebra print blouse LOL, FlowerChild, LadyBug, and Cornbread. We are gathered around the new bug zapper with its purple light waiting for it to zap a bug. Then we notice that it makes Cornbread's white shirt glow in the dark. My little Gloworm! So we get to looking around and we see it makes Blondie's zebra shirt glow in the dark. She says, "Hey, this is better than the bowling alley!" GuitarMan goes, "Galaxy bowling!!!" Aah, life in the country!

But I don't want to!

I'm having an attitude problem. I'm looking around at what needs to be done. I have the desire for the work to be done but I have no desire to actually do the work! Therein lies the problem.
I think we could truthfully apply that to a lot of areas in our life.

We want our church to have "programs" but we don't want to actually work in them.

We want to be healthy but we don't want to work or sacrifice to get that way.

Same thing with weight...(don't even want to go there LOL!)

We want our children to behave, make good choices, etc but we are tired.

We want our homes to look nice but don't want to do housework, yardwork, work!

Ugh, so what to do, what to do? I'm telling myself the answer right now as I type.

Get over yourself! Sometimes you have to lay aside the selfish, less important desires and just do the harder thing in order to get results and have the real desires of your heart.

Sigh..so I guess that's where I am headed now. I'm …

Home Sweet Quiet Home

This week we have been enjoying a business trip that has us staying in the Atlanta area. Coming through Atlanta was absolutely crazy! The place we are staying is actually considered a suburb. You can't tell though because you never knew when you left Atlanta itself! Our hotel is very nice and that is always a plus. I had hoped we could sneak in a field trip of sorts but there really isn't anything close enough. There is a lot of shopping here though and our family enjoyed seeing the large malls and letting the kids ride the train and carousel.

Wow, what a difference from any of the places we ever called home! Even the place we used to consider the big city is really nothing more than a town in comparison.
Before we moved to our current home, we lived in a very rural area. Snakes and coyotes were a constant in life, traffic and people were not ha ha! But I loved my quiet life. It was peaceful. Peace was welcomed anyway we could get it during the stress of the last couple of y…

Thanksgiving Catch Up

How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was very good. My oldest son was able to come home. We were afraid this might be the first Thanksgiving he wasn't with us but he was able to arrange his schedule to make it home. His band was away shooting a music video. What might have taken all week, they managed to do in one full day! He headed homeWednesday and stayed until Sunday.

My guys were able to do quite a lot of hunting over the holiday. They both love to fish and hunt. We've been very blessed that our last home and this one, there are several places for them to enjoy the outdoors. We love deer meat. It is healthy and really helps to stretch the budget. When prepared correctly you might even think it is beef!

The kids and I got a little creative with our vegetables on Thanksgiving day and created a fun centerpiece. My youngest named it Pluto. ;)


Since I had a smoked turkey and a brown sugar ham, we opted for sandwiches for lunch and ate our Thanksgiving Dinner for supper that night.…
