The Day After


As my good friend Just Simply Linda said this morning, we’ve all slipped into food coma’s today. *lol* There was Turkey, Cornbread Dressing, Turkey Gravy, Green Peas and Chocolate Cupcakes. We kept it simple this year since we’re both suffering from some kind of nasty Creeping Crud also known as a head cold. This virus is awful! Hubby is still firming ensconced on the sofa. Bless his heart. I am finally well enough to walk around without digressing into coughing my lungs out. (Nice image, huh?)


Oh, remember the 2000 Kawasaki VN 800 Classic that was going to be refurbished then sold? Well, the motor didn’t crank after all. Plus the tank was too rusted to make it cost effective to continue. It will have to be parted out in order to recover our costs. No biggy. After selling all these parts, there are plans to possibly buy another bike and go from there.

And Hubby wants to start making unfinished picture and shadowbox frames for sale. He will also take some of those shadowbox frames that will feature exotic mounted butterfly’s. We already have some of his work throughout the house from when we when living in Florida. They are quite lovely. The shadowboxes sold very well in Florida. Since that won’t work here he plans to put these items on E-Bay. That’s the plan anyway.

And as soon as I’m well, I plan to start decorating for Christmas. Maybe next week.

Hope y’all are having a very happy, fun filled day.



Gobsmacked By God’s Mercy


Have you ever been so gobsmacked that it renders you speechless? Well, that’s me today. I have never in my 60 years on earth done this but I stayed up with Hubby until 3 am last night to watch the election results. Well, when it was announced that Trump & Pence won, the tears of joy began to flow.

God answers prayer. It’s HIS mercy that we still have an America to wake up to.  May there continue to be a great spiritual movement in our country to get people saved. Thank you LORD. Thank you. May YOU always win on the throne of our hearts.

“Every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights; with Him there is no variation or shadow cast by turning” [James 1:17].

Can I get an Amen?  🙂


And how about a Wordless Wednesday thrown in for good measure. Yep, that’s me right now (and I’m sure millions of other true Americans). Glorying in His mercy, kindness and love. (PS: That’s the dirt road that leads to our country home. Purdy, ain’t it. *giggle*)

May your day be blessed my friends.
