Well, it is definitely feeling like fall/winter out there. The wind has a chill and it's cloudy and dark. I think it's time to break out the winter clothes. Some of the rocawear sweaters might be in order. Something thick and warm. I bought a new jacket this past weekend, but don't think it will be warm enough now. That's ok, I can wear it next spring.

Mice. Yuck!

Well, I guess with Fall brings more mice. On a farm you can see them coming for shelter and warmth. The fields are bare and the ground is quickly becoming cooler. We recently saw this little fella peeking out to see what we were doing. We also saw a gray and a black mouse. Do any of you know what a black mouse is? I had never seen one before..... hum...........

What a beautiful day to clean and work out at the acreage. Emry and Israel enjoyed sitting out by the flower garden in the sunshine. They are going to love all of the space they have now for running and playing! We're so excited for them! :)

Vikings Fans!!

My daughter and her family are true Viking Fans!! They even have the kids involved now. I thought this picture they sent was so cute. Even Kaden the littlest one is into the game now. They love to cheer along side daddy!

Depuy Lawsuit

We seem to be seeing a rise in health issues these days. What might be the cause? I don't think anyone knows for sure. When we go into surgery we are trusting that our doctors and the medical community know what they are talking about. Some have found that this isn't always the case. In August of 2010 DePuy Orthopedics (owned by Johnson & Johnson) announced that they were recalling 93,000 hip replacement systems. They were finding that a huge group of patients were suffering from severe swelling and pain following their hip replacement surgeries. You can find out more if you are one of these sufferers. With the attorneys at O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, they can assist you in finding out more about the Depuy lawsuit/liability claim process.

They grow up so fast. I can hardly remember Kaden being a baby. Here he is at 11 months old and he's starting to take his first steps. It's so cute to watch them as they are growing!

Time Flies

You have heard the phrase, 'time flies when you are having fun'. It is so true! Two of our grand kids will be turning three years old soon and the other two will turn one only days after. It is a joy to watch them grow and learn. We have loved every minute of being around them all. It would be nice to live a little closer to them but for now we settle for being able to see them as often as we can.

Gold Coins

Are you one of millions who have been concerned about your investments and your future? Well, you are not alone. People have had to delay retiring due to the loses they incurred during the stock market drop. With the United States Gold Bureau you can now purchase silver, gold coins and other precious metals.

Table Saw

My husband wants to get a table saw. We get by pretty well with the tools we have but a table saw would come in handy at times. Having the right tools for the job makes a big difference. I don't know if we would have room for one but we will try hard to find a place. Our single garage is getting quite full. It might be time to think of building a shed or small garage. I have to get my husband convinced of that first.

New Glasses

I don't get new glasses every year but I think this will be the year. It has been awhile since my last new pair and I think it is time for a change. My current glasses aren't too bad but I am due for a new style. I hope to just get new frames and keep the lenses. I wear contacts once in awhile too. There are so many to choose from but I am ready to shop.

60th Anniversary

Over the past few months my siblings and I were planning a celebration for my parents. It was their 60th Anniversary! We are all very proud of the example they have shown each one of us. It was great to honor them.

Baby Eczema Treatments

My daughter and daughter-in-law have each had two babies over the past couple of years. It's great that they can share in the experiences of raising children and all that can come with that. Our one grandchild has dealt with some eczema and his mom has found baby eczema treatments that have helped him. It's so wonderful to have the children growing up so close together.

How to remove dark circles

As I get older I find many things about myself changing. In my thirties I was amazed at how the skin under my eyes began to change. One day while looking in the mirror I noticed a new and different appearance. There were darker circles and looser skin. I began looking for ways on how to remove dark circles and eye creams to protect and improve my skin. Most of us want to keep our youth as long as we can.

In raising three children we saw many differences. As adolescence they were all three quite diverse. They had their own interests, goals and health issues. One of our children dealt more with acne. Compared to today it was difficult at the time to research and know what might work best as far as treatment went. Now with the ease of the internet a person can click into websites such as and others. It's so quick to find what you may be needing.

Christmas gift ideas for girlfriend

Tis the Season! It's already fall and soon the holidays will be upon us. I have began the shopping process. Making a list can be the most time consuming part of it all. To gather christmas gift ideas for girlfriend, boyfriend, spouse, children and grandchildren takes some time. I do enjoy this time of year. With internet shopping it is so much easier. It saves me time and money.

Favorite Music

My favorite music is definitely contemporary Christian. Whether on the radio, internet or CD that is what I listen to. I know people that only listen to country tunes and some enjoy rock but those are not really my kind of music. I guess it is good there are so many different choices.

Old Clock

We have an old clock on the wall that was made by a family member. It looks great and has worked very well for years. It hangs above our fireplace and goes well with the rest of the room. Even if it didn't go with the other furnishings I would still have it hanging just as a reminder of the one who made it.


Bill talked to a friend today who is retired. The guy totally loves being retired. He said he can travel with his wife whenever he wants and stay as long as he wants. It sounds like they travel by motor home quite often. Knowing this person I think he will always enjoy retirement and not get bored with not having a job. I hope he is happy.


Have you or your friends or loved ones been concerned about what the future economy holds? There are many who are. We have watched as people have lost their investments and the stock market has dropped. You will find that the United States Gold Bureau has silver, gold and other precious metals for purchase. What a great and diverse way to invest. There is silver and gold sold in a pure bullion cast that is called an ingot form. The size and shape is convenient for storage as well as delivery.

Internet Speed

I know there is a big difference in the internet speed that the companies provide. We had cable internet for a short time but got rid of it due to loss of connection way too often. From the days of dial up we have come a long way. Our current provider doesn't have super high speed but it does us just fine.

Crash diets that work

Many today are looking for crash diets that work. I must say I have tried a variety of ways to lose those unwanted pounds. It has become an issue for me as I grow older. I didn't seem to have a concern with it when I was younger. I feel as though I have to eat less, exercise more and still don't seem to lose. I guess I will keep trying.

I have not set up a Twitter account yet. I know several people that have and they tweet many times a day. Some tie it to their facebook page and some choose not to. I am not sure yet if I will start sharing my information using Twitter. Time will tell. For now I will just read other people's tweets.

ps3 games

In raising two boys we found that technology was their thing. They enjoyed the latest game units and all they had to offer. The ps3 games were a favorite. Not only that, but they needed the ps3 cables and other ps3 accessories as well.They always needed that extra controller so they could play with a friend. These machines took up much of their free time and continue to do so even as adults. Isn't it something how addicting something can be?

Saniflo Toilet

My son and his wife recently purchased their first home. They took possession this week and began work. They have gutted the bathroom and are going to be redoing it all. In shopping they have found that there are many types of bathroom tubs, toilets and vanities. A person can find brands such as the Saniflo toilet and more. This is a first for them, so it is fun to watch their excitement as they work on their first home.

With the rain and colder temps I think today would be a great day to stay inside and read a good book. Too bad we have other things we want to get done today. For those of you that have your work done already, the reading of a good book would be a fine choice. Maybe by tonight I can sit and relax a little bit.
