Time To Go

Well, it is after supper and Zoe thinks she needs her walk. It seems so dark out at the supper hour right now. She does need her exercise. She is kind of a tubby little thing. I don't usually tell her that but she is a bit overweight. I guess I should be glad that she likes her walks and it's nice cause Bill is the one that takes her, not me.

On a night like this, it is nice to be inside where it is dry. It has rained a little bit tonight, just enough to make things messy. The temperatures have been comfortable at day and night.

Long day

It's been another long day. Got up early and started cleaning house some. Went to work and had an hour for lunch. Decided I would do some more cleaning while I was home.

We have been much better about not eating as much and especially staying away from extra helpings of food as well as desserts. Last night however, Bill jokingly asked 'did you make the cookies yet'? I joked back and asked him the same question. We held off and didn't make cookies or eat anything else after supper but it was tempting. Tonight maybe I will ask him about the cookies before he asks me. They sure sound good.


Does anyone out there watch this season's Survivor? I hadn't really been watching the show, but caught a little bit of it tonight. They had a challenge for each team. They had to eat specialty food. It was gross looking stuff like chicken hearts (raw), tiny little birds with feathers, very old eggs etc... Nasty... But they did it. I don't think I could be on that show.

I have had to wear my glasses more than I want to. It is something that I never thought I would need. I have a pair in my desk at work and I have a couple different pair here at home. I can see far away but the glasses really help me see things up close. Bill bought some contact lenses a few years ago but they were mainly for his golfing. He said that his glasses would get in the way. He doesn't use the contacts very much any more. He mainly wears his glasses.

My oldest children are twins. They had their 25th Birthday yesterday. One of them lives in Texas so we didn't get to see him, but we called and chatted and wished him a Happy Birthday. Our daughter is close enough that we drove up and made her one of her favorite meals and then took her and her husband out to a movie. It was "Rendition". It was a pretty good movie. We had a nice time and it was good for Jenna to get out since she is about due to have their first baby. :)

Home Made Pizza

Bill has wanted to make home made pizza for the past week. So one night he got his wish. I have to admit that his pizza is awesome. Over the years I have had pizza so much that there are times when I could do without it forever. But that night it sounded like a terrific meal, especially since I didn't have to make it.

My sister was in town yesterday and we had lunch. We had a nice time. We also had stopped by my house and she was nice enough to let Zoe outside before we left. The door got left unlocked but Zoe was fine and didn't even try to get out. Bill thought it would be funny to send my sister an email saying that because she left the door unlocked, Zoe got out and was running around town until the police called. I didn't think is was that funny and I doubt that my sister did either. Then again, she knows Bill well enough that she might get a chuckle out of the whole deal. He can be such a joker.

Cooling Off

We mowed last week and we may have to again soon.

Credit Cards

In todays world most people have at least one credit card if not multiple. It has become quite easy to obtain them. Years ago it was almost impossible if you didn't have some kind of credit already established. For the young person coming out of college it made things more difficult. That is no longer the case as we are all very aware of. Some college kids now come out of college owing thousands of dollars on cards.

Old Movies

Do you like to watch old movies? We have our favorites as I am sure you do. We like some of the older westerns. Some of the early John Wayne movies were really quite fun to watch. I know they were made way before I was born but they are still good. The James Stewart westerns were very good too. We recently watched one called 'Winchester 73'. It was a very good movie.

Exercise Machine

A while back we purchased an Elliptical Machine. My daughter told me about it and said it is the last machine I will need to own. I would just love it. Well, I have been using it for about three weeks now. I do like it, which isn't bad since I hate to exercise. I have found that I can go longer and stronger in the mornings. The problem is that I don't always have time in the mornings, so I do it in the evenings then. O'well, as long as I'm doing it, right? :)

More Toys

Yesterday we bought some more toys for the grand kids. We found a used Little Tikes kitchen and lots of toy food and utensils. It is a kitchen just like our kids had when they were little. It is in very good condition and Bill already put in the basement with the rest of our purchases. We have quite the assortment of toys already. I am sure the little ones will have a blast with all of the stuff. We have a little work bench and tools which look like loads of fun.

In Service

It went pretty well and I think we all had a nice time. Bill had a yearly training too from Wednesday until Friday. He got back on Friday and we met for supper on his way home. He has so many others in his work that they go to training in groups of forty or so. They stay in a motel at night and have class and outdoor training for two or three days. I think Bill likes to go but he enjoys coming home even more.


Our youngest son and his girlfriend have really gotten into golfing this past summer. Now with Fall upon us, it has become more difficult to be out there. The weather is crisp and the leaves are only in the way. I think they have taken up walking and exercising for the time being.

Tired Zoe

Zoe spent last week with Jenna and Scott. She always enjoys staying with them. They treat her very well. I am sure she has fun at their house. Yesterday before we left their house Zoe was out in the back yard on her chain and went under the deck. Bill thought she was really stuck. It took a little doing to get her out. I think she could smell a bunny or something under the deck. Today she is very tired.

Feeding The Squirrels

Yesterday we stopped by a farmer friend's house and asked for some single ears of corn to have for our little squirrel in the back yard. The farmer told us we could fill the back of the pickup with corn. Bill told him that we didn't need that much. We did go into the field and picked a grocery bag full. We will keep it in the garage and have it available to put out in the yard. We had bought a small wire corn holder to hang on the tree. Bill just went outside and put another ear of corn in it. The squirrels are
fun to watch.

Ocean's 13

Often Bill and I don't have enough time to sit down and watch a movie. We decided we would attempt to last night so we got out Ocean's 13 from our video library. It was a pretty good movie, but right at the end it froze, so we never did get to see the ending. Kind of a bummer. Maybe we'll have to catch it on TV sometime when it's out.

Veggie Tales

It's so strange after years of not having the sounds of children around our home, we are about to have two grand babies with us soon. We are already in high gear with buying up toys and most recently playing some new videos we now have.

Zoe has returned. Bill and I had to go away for classes this week, so we took Zoe to Scott and Jenna's for the week. It was sure quiet without her. She is always doing something to amuse us. If not that, then she is ringing her bell to let you know that she wants to make a trip outside for awhile. She's such a smart dog. I think she had a great time at the kid's place, but she was sure tired tonight.


It's getting late and I've been busy blogging. It's almost midnight so I better think about going to bed. Tomorrow is Sunday and I want to be rested. I enjoy Sundays. We'll go to church and worship and learn more about the Lord. You can never learn to much. You are either growing or moving backwards. There is no standing still. Keep seeking Him and growing. That's my desire.

Online University

With todays busy life styles and demands, people are still finding the importance of education. It's so nice that there are alternatives to the traditional college education.

Dad's 80th Birthday

We held a surprise birthday party for my dad last weekend. It was a busy time, but we had so much fun! He turned 80 and had no idea we were putting together his dinner party. Quite a few family members were able to attend. He was given 80 gold $1 coins in a gold filled box. His eyes lite up when he opened it. It was great! Sure glad we surprised him.

Baby Shower

Last weekend was filled with excitement and fun! Scott and Jenna had a baby shower for the upcoming birth of their little one. There was a great turn out and they received so many nice things.

It has been homecoming for many of the surrounding schools. There has been quite a lot of toilet papering going on again this year. The other day as I drove through town I saw a whole block covered in toilet paper. There was even a little girls bike that was almost not seen due to the white paper. I remember some young kids that had done some toilet papering and claimed that there had been 200 rolls used. That is a lot of paper.

Egg Salad

I work with a guy that can't stand the smell of egg salad. I agree that it does leave a strong smell in a room for quite some time. I made some for sandwiches the other day and it sounds good again today. Bill didn't get any of it this past week so maybe he can have a sandwich today. We like to have chips and dip with our egg salad. I know that doesn't make for the most healthy lunch but it is good.


With starting this blog in the recent few months I have found PayPerPost to be awesome! My son had been trying to find ways of making money on the internet and many of them were actually costing him. He kept searching the net and somehow he found PayPerPost. From there he started to let family know how great this new opportunity was. At first it seemed almost too good to be true, and you know what people say about those type of deals. I have since told many friends and coworkers about PayPerPost and they are loving it also. It is so simple once you get the hang of it. PayPerPost is easy to work with and I receive money in my PayPal account! I have started saving my PayPerPost money for a trip for my husband and me. I have heard that some poeple are making a lot of money and I want to be in that situation. I have a full time job and I still find time to get my posting done. Sometimes I have opportunities to post in the morning before work. Not only does it help me make money but it helps drive traffic to my blog. It is exciting to find other people that have learned how great PayPerPost is and to have things in common with these new found freinds. You just have to check out PayPerPost! You will be so glad you did.

The days are getting shorter. I love it in the summer time when the sun is up early and the nights are long. Now when I get up in the morning, it's still dark outside. When the evenings are light it feels like the day is longer. We seem to get more done. I guess that's just the way it is. We can't change it.

I can't believe how warm and humid it has become again. Here it is Oct. and we are having temps in the 70's and 80's. It sure is nice. Winter will come soon enough and the snow will be flying. It's just strange to have the air conditioner running still. Don't dare open windows with all of those tiny bugs out there.

HD Stock Video Library

Attention all cinematographers. There is now a website where you can find and contribute stock footage. It has a large HD Stock Video Library where you can browse and find quality High Definition footage. AlwaysHD is a great site that has collected professional stock footage from all over the industry by talented cinematographers like yourself. They are doing business with production companies, broadcast television studios, independent filmmakers to name a few. Now with all of those extra pieces of footage you can possibly gain some revenue. Your field work is not in vein. Once purchased a person is free to use the clip anywhere for as long as they would like. Noe your footage can be made available on line. Look into them.

Scott and Jenna's

Well, we're heading over to Scott and Jenna's tonight to have supper. We're taking Zoe there because we will be gone some this next week, so they will dog sit for us. That is so nice that they are willing to do that. Zoe loves a good vacation now and then. All you have to do is mention the kids names and she gets excited. She'll have a good time. :)

No-See ums

I just stepped outside to talk with some neighbor girls. They were selling Girl Scout nuts. I could hardly bare to be out there. The little no-see um black bugs were attacking us. They have that little sting to them. I told her she would have to finishing filling out the form. I had to get indoors quickly.


With owning and running a computer comes responsibility. If you are wanting to protect your personal information, as most of us do, you will want to research and find the best computer security software that is out there. Well, look no further, with Software Security Solutions you may find what you are needing. They believe in a layered security system. Combining several security software products, they have created software to cover many avenues. Most security software will protect only certain areas. With Security Solutions their approach is broadened. They not only have excellent software available to the customer, but also customer support to back you up. Check into them and you too can add ESET to your computer.

Student Loans

Boy, isn't it sad how costly college has become. You see your children grow up and go off to college and get their degrees, but with loans to follow. You're happy they are educated and have their careers, but at what cost? Kids today have to start out with huge loans to repay along with meeting that special someone who in return also has those student loans. It can cause a lot of stress on these new families. All of that and they haven't even begun with life as we knew it. Buying the first home, babies and more. I just wish that something could be done about the rising costs of schooling.

Coolness Of Night

I am partial to summer but having these cooler nights isn't bad either. In fact this time of year might become a favorite. We have had a couple windows open just a little bit at night and it feels good. Now just to be rid of those little black bugs. This morning my car windows were pretty well covered with dew and I needed to use my wipers. I guess that is what happens in this time of year.

Houston Lapband

Well, today you hear all kinds of solutions to being over weight. For the person that is really struggling to lose a lot of excess weight, it can become a challenge. Now there is Journey Lite. It is a rapidly growing network of surgical facilities, educated and experienced surgeons and other health care professionals. They are committed to giving help with a safe surgical procedure called the Lap-Band system. The gastric band is placed, through a small slit, around the upper stomach. This creates a feeling of less room to hold food in the tummy. In turn it can cause a person to eat less because of the feeling of being full faster. Then having the results of losing weight. It is also completely reversible. Browse the houston lapband site and see what you think.

Gas Prices

It has been nice that the gas prices have been going down. Although it is too bad that we now think low gas prices mean that we can buy at $2.69. My husband's dad had owned a gas station from the early 70's and when he opened for business the price was 32.9 cents per gallon. Bill said that people would come to the station and buy fifty cents or a dollars worth of gas at a time. They would also want the oil and tires checked along with cleaning the windows. Those were the days.


We bought our laptop from Jake when he got his new Apple computer. He really likes his new one and we like having a laptop too. It is handy when we are sitting in the living room at night. This one has a nice big screen so it is easy to see. It has been working pretty well. If we do have any issues with it we just call Jake and he helps to figure out the problem.

Baby Store

Are you interest in baby information? Many of us are. I know I am with two grand babies coming soon. I love to shop for them, but am not always aware of the best products to buy or where to shop. Now with this huge search engine, The Knot Inc., you can go to their latest addition,, and find all kinds of opinions and answers to your questions. They have listings of people giving their thoughts and opinions on products, services and their baby store of choice.

The site can answer questions like, where should I take my baby for a haircut or what stroller is the best since I'm having twins. It's great! With just a click you can find answers. Check it out.

Where Is My Favorite Show?

The other night I sat down on the couch to watch one of my favorite TV shows, The Rifleman, and it wasn't on. I was disappointed to say the least. I don't even remember what else was on except that is was a western movie. So far this week The Rifleman hasn't been on at all. Where did it go? That is what I would like to know.

National Health Administrators

It is something that most of us don't really take a lot of time to think about when we're younger. It's long term care. Today so many people are in need of this type of care. With nursing homes, assisted living situations, rehabilitation and more, our Medicare system can only aid in the process. Medicaid helps out if the individual is in need of nursing home care, but there needs to be more. That is where the National Health Administrators comes in. This Dallas based company is committed to helping you. They are a long term care insurance agency that can supply information and possible solutions to this concern for your future care. It's something we all need to think about today.

Time To Rest

Time to eat supper. We need to finish up with some dirty clothes and then we are done. It is now time to relax a little. There is a nice breeze coming in the windows and I think we will see if there is anything worthwhile on the television. Some nights there are a few shows that we like to watch and at other times there is just nothing worth viewing. Hopefully tonight is a good viewing night.

Xbox skins

With Christmas around the corner, some of us are starting to think about what kind of gift ideas are out there this season. For me it is much harder to buy for the men in my life. I was looking at a website recently that had what they are calling, SkinIt. A person can purchase skins to cover many devices. With a huge selection of art work you are sure to find something you would enjoy having. I was thinking about the Xbox skins since my son owns an Xbox 360. It is unique and personal. I think he would enjoy it. There are many choices on SkinIt. You will have to browse their site.

Deck Furniture

Soon we will need to find space in the garage for our deck furniture. We have a lounger and also a two person metal swing on the deck. We used to have a table with chairs but we gave them away. Bill always finds room in the garage for all my deck stuff. We always put things away for the winter months. It is much easier to clean snow from the deck that way.


We have so much stuff in our garage that it is hard to get the car inside at times. What we need is a better way to store the things that we have. I know that having better storage and shelving would help. My husband changes oil in the cars and also uses his power tools in the garage. Right now we have only two bikes hanging from the ceiling, sometimes it is more. Many garages are in need of help just like mine. I was very exciting to find just what I have needed at You will be amazed at the 1,000 plus products they have for your garage. Check them out today.

Computer Woes

Have you ever had computer problems? I have had some that needed an expert to correct. At times our computer will freeze and I have to reboot it. That doesn't happen very often. I have talked to friends that have experienced terrible issues. Some have even had to buy a new computer. I hope ours keeps hanging in there for a long tome. I would like to get an updated and faster computer but I want to wait until next year.

Score Learning Centers

Through out the years as my children grew, I found that each one was unique and quite different from the other. The same held true when it came to school. One would excel in math while another maybe in reading. But, it usually seemed that there would be a subject that might give one of them trouble. Reading can be a hard subject for some kids. It is so nice to know that there is help available out there. With the Score Learning Centers there are Reading Tutors to help your child improve academically. From ages 4 to 14, they can help. Look into their site.

Time to eat

I can smell supper in the kitchen. We're having lasagna tonight. It sure smells good. Bill just took out the bread sticks so I think it's time to eat. Zoe's been hanging around out there. I'm sure she's hoping to see something fall to the floor. We'll have to get her dog food out for her.

Lap Band Surgery

There are so many people that are struggling to lose that unwanted weight. With new information and technology, the medical community now has what they are calling lap band surgery. It is a band that is placed on the upper stomach and is adjustable and completely reversible. If you are in the Houston vicinity and want to research your options,Richard Collier is one of the top lap band surgeons in the area. In Kingwood Lap band is set up with your comfort in mind.

Open Windows

It has been nice to have windows open and not be in need of the air conditioner. Sometimes the weather is very warm in October but so far it is great. Some places have gotten more rain than needed but here at home we have had just the right amount. I am not a farmer and I am not sure if this rain is damaging the crops. Hopefully the farmers will have a great crop again.


Crafts and country were the big thing for many years. I don't mind if it isn't quite as popular as it once was. I still enjoy picking up cute country crafts. Fall is one of my favorite time of the year for this. I unpack and set out all of my fall things and decorate my tree in the family room with fall leaves and things. It all just has such a warm feeling to it. I like this time of year.


I have sometime thought about trying something new in life. Working on my own maybe. Wouldn't it be nice to be your own boss. Well, there is an opportunity out there that does sound interesting. I know that my sister-in-law does something similar. It's with multivend. This is a company out of Deer Park, NY. They have been in business since 1990.

Beautiful Trees

This time of year brings out the best in trees. It is rainy enough but still not so hot and everything is also green. There are many places around the state you can find such great sights. We usually don't need to go farther than our own yard. It is nice to just sit on the deck and enjoy the neighborhood trees. What a sight.


I guess we all have to eat, but my dog thinks that she needs to constantly. If she hears someone go out into the kitchen, she's right under foot. If there is a wrapper noise anywhere in the house, she will find the person holding it. We have been trying to get her to not beg, but she still seems to do it. We tried the bottle of water trick. We spray her slightly when she starts to whine and it helps sometimes. I guess we just haven't been strict enough with her. She could stand to lose some weight with the rest of us. Maybe she wants to try the elliptical machine. :)

Supper Time

It is about supper time and I am not the only one in the family who thinks so. Zoe is at my feet begging to be fed. She gets about the same food each day and usually she doesn't mind. Once in awhile we get her a different dog food but for the most part we add food to her dish and top it with just a little people food. I know we shouldn't do that but it would be hard to break the habit now. It isn't like we give her a plate full or anything. Now for me to figure out what to make for the people in the family.

emortgage from Encomia

I have spent more time at the bank and mortgage company than I care to remember. The world today has become very technology based. Until recently I didn't realize that I could actually get a mortgage online. There is now what is called an emortgage or electronic mortgage. This process will save all involved time and money. A loan can be funded in as little as 48 hours. People borrowing can start the process online spend much less time at closing.

Zoe Missed Us

Today I had to run some errands and Bill was at work. When we got home I just knew that Zoe had missed us. I would really like to know what she does when we aren't here. Does she throw a party for neighborhood animals? Does she watch television? Maybe she just sleeps the day away. Actually we do sometimes turn on the animal channel for her. She was so excited to see us when we walked into the house. It is nice to know she loves us.

Do any of you find clothes to be a hassle? I do. With each new season I can't remember what I wore last year. It's tough to figure out what goes with what and what is the latest trend. I don't have to be a fashion plate, but do like to look somewhat in style with the times. I tend to go out and purchase some new items and I see that it is now time to clean out some of my older clothes. Better do that soon.

Maytag Dishwashers

Have you ever had a dishwasher or refrigerator give you a problem? Maybe it was the washer and dryer. What ever it might be, it can be a hassle. No one enjoys having problems with their appliances. It can be quite time consuming to research and find just the perfect Maytag Dishwashers or a refrigerator. Then it's to figure out where you can go and purchase the item. Well, now there is Krillion on line. You the consumer and quickly click on and research the product in question. They will guide you as to where you can buy it also. How nice it that? You now have a website searching for the appliance needed, price you want, quality and location. It sounds wonderful to me.


I received a phone call last night. It was from our Pastor's wife. She helps coordinate activities for the MOPS (mothers of preschool children) group. They are planning to have a panel of several women who are in the WOW (wisdom of women)age group. They would like to have women from ages 40-80's, to discuss some questions that the MOP mom's have for us. They had even thought of asking my mom, which I thought was awesome. I felt it an honor and compliment to be asked and told her I will have to see if I will be around at that time. Our grand babies are coming soon.


It's another rainy day. The chill is in the air. As I look out the window I can see the fall colors appearing. The trees are beginnning to lose their leaves as they float to the ground. I guess this must mean winter is at our doorstep. It came to soon for me.

Cancun Vacation

Who doesn't enjoy a great get-away in the winter months. A Cancun Vacation sounds wonderful to me. The white-sand beaches of Mexico are so gorgeous.

Chinese Food

I work with someone that has never been to a local Chinese restaurant in our area. I might go with him tomorrow. I have told him how good it is and he is finally willing to give it a try. I will just have to see how the day goes. If we don't get to go tomorrow we will make it another time. I may go with Bill to an appointment instead.

What fun we will have.

Where Does The Time Go?

The nights just seem to fly by. We get home from work and do some chores before supper and then it is time for bed. The time just zips by. It seems like we always have something to do. Tonight we had just a quick supper but sometimes we make a big meal. It gets dark early too which makes it seem later. Soon we will be setting our clocks back one hour. Where does the time go?

Home Fitness

We all have different health needs. Sometimes it's the fact that a person has to watch their blood pressure. So a blood pressure cuff is needed at home on a daily basis. Or maybe due to a physical need, a person needs assistance in the shower by using a shower chair.

Grilling In The Rain

Yesterday after church we grilled hamburgers for lunch. They turned out pretty good. It was rainy in the morning but I figured the rain would stop by early afternoon. I was wrong. It wasn't raining when I started the grill but started soon after. I then used a big umbrella as I checked on lunch. Of course, then the rain stopped and I was holding this extremely large red and white umbrella. I quickly put that back in the garage and let the sprinkles fall on me as I continued to cook. I didn't get too wet and lunch was good.


Lately I have been exercising on my new elliptical machine. It is so nice to just go down to the basement and work out. Bill still goes to the YMCA but he uses our machine too. It is so handy. I used to walk outside but this machine will be very nice in the cold weather. I do not like going out when it is nasty weather.

Finch Food

Today we bought some finch food. We used to get some other kind of bird feed but we tended to get undesirable birds in our yard. By that I mean blackbirds. I would rather have the small birds since they make less mess. My mom and dad have a hummingbird feeder just outside their window. We used to have one but never saw hummingbirds. I think we will just stick to the finch feeder.

Day Off

Today Bill took the day off and went with me to my hair appointment and also to get groceries. His work owed him time so he was able to take the full day off. His hours of work are 8.5 hours per day and many times he works longer than that. He usually doesn't have any problem getting time off which is nice. I like it when he is able to go places with me. He is my chauffeur and he doesn't mind.
