I got up and went for a 2 mile walk at 6:30 a.m. It was getting cloudy, but I needed to get done before JoAnn came home from her Midnight Shift. At some point, she yelled at me. I said I am done. I have had it. This situation has NOT BENEFITED me at all. She said it isn't just you. I said. I will clean up after me. Your Home, your mess. I said, You let two Dirt Bags move in. I am tired.
I gave her my food stamp card, and my list of veggies, eggs, and what nots to get for me. I said if you do not feel like it, just say so, I can get someone else to take me to the store. I didn't need anyone in this house to do me a favor.
She looked at me, and said, I know that since they moved in it has been an ordeal. I said I didn't sign up for this crap. You made this decision, didn't ask me. I am done. She said she will let them know they can not eat any of my food. That when they cook, I will not touch theirs.
She also told me, to quit cleaning up their room and doing their laundry. Suzanne appreciates it, but her husband laughs. I am their Maid Service. Well no more.
The refrigerator is Empty. She spent 80 dollars last week on some things. They spent money on lunch meat and stuff, but that is how we GOT FATTER to begin with. The refrigerator has some real butter, ketchup, mustard, a dab of mayo, and some junk toppings that they bought.
Next week I will walk down town, and get the forms for housing. Try to find an apartment. The sad thing is, with the Oil and Gas men in town, rent has gone sky high. It is not that there is a lot here, but I am already set up with the assistance, and I just would rather find a place here.
Anyways, NOW THAT I HAVE TOLD YOU HOW MY DAY WENT, how is everyone else doing. Better than me, I hope! I love you, and I am a SURVIVOR. Love

Well, I got the other picture on. Don't ask me how.
Went to Walmarts today, I got (Believe It) Litter Liners for the cat. hahahaha
Buses were not running on time. It was really hot, and a neighbor came by, he said he would take me home. I said I had several places to go. He took me to all my destinations, then took me home.
I am hoping we get some rain. We sure need it. Isaac will probably fizzle out by the time he gets here. Naturally.
This has not been a good week food wise. I have eaten more food in the last 5 days, then ever. I need to get my stamps, and get my rabbit food. I love salads and eggs, veggies, and fruit. JoAnn will go for me when she gets done on her midnight shift tomorrow night. I told her, she will have to stick to MY LIST. She said she would.
We haven't spoken much since our fight a few days ago. She told her daughter, and she said, So What. JoAnn told her that they would have to get out, because the house would have to be sold. No one can afford the extra $400. Then Suzanne said, she won't leave, and JoAnn said, Don't Ever Count On It. She said I am lucky that I have stayed this long, especially since they moved in, and the food issues.
JoAnn told her, that they take everything for granted, that I will go with the flow. She said, You don't know your aunt at all.
Anyways I need to go. Work to do, JoAnn is off to work, and I need to get my but in gear, wash the cat, and clean the refrigerator. Talk to you all later. Love

I got up this morning, and it was 57 degrees outside. A lovely day for my 4 mile walk. We have had little rain, so there isn't much water in the creek, but two herons were looking for fish to eat.
They are so tall, and a stately bird, and when they fly. they look quite odd.
As I continued my walk past the sheds, a gentleman has bird feeders in his yard, the yellow and black finches were eating, and there were a few finches, that I had never seen before. The female is a greyish, and the males have a reddish head and breast feathers. It was a lovely sight. The gentleman showed me a bird book, that is his hobby. He has 8 feeders.
I continued on my little jaunt, and as I came to finish my first mile, a mother deer and her two babies, ( who no longer had spots) were besides my sisters house eating.
On my second mile, 4 canadian geese were at the side of the main road, a neighbor standing feeding them special feed, and some bread. He does this every so many days. Further up a mother duck, and her thirteen offspring, who are now grown, are walking across the road. Oblivious to traffic, which everyone stops and waits for the ducks to cross.
As I continued my walk, I thought of how truly peaceful it was, and how much beauty was here. I love the area, I just hate my situation. But it is a blessing to see all the wildlife here.
Yes I have many things to be thankful for. I love nature and all the wildlife, I love listening to the crickets at night, and before sunrise, hearing all the bird chirping.
Can we imagine the joy when God first created all these things, and he could hear all his creatures. What joy that must have been for him. In the garden, with all its beauty.
We do have a loving Father. And this morning He showed me all the beauty in my neighborhood.

One dear friend, let me know that in my blog about my caller from Scotland, I didn't list all my friends from the U.S.A.
So, from California, to New York (coast) The Carolinas', Georgia, Florida, New Orleans, clear up to Canada, to all my friends, I love you. In every state.
Now in the U.S. I can call anyone, I believe, I have a cell phone. So if you want a phone call, please send me a SparkMail, and set up a day and time, and I will call you. You, my beloved International friends, I can't do that.
You are all with me each day. I go to my friends page, and look at each picture. I see how well you are doing, with new pictures. You are all truly amazing.
It is a whole different feeling talking to someone, hearing their voice, and I know there are many of you who have seen and visited your spark friends.
Computers are great, but nothing compared to hearing, seeing and hugging a friend.
Everyone, I love you and have a Good Night.

Yesteday was a PERFECT DAY. Ok. But it was.
I went to ALL his blogs, his stories, the pictures, they are just beautiful.
As I laid in bed, I thought of how he and his family, go to all these wonderful, historical places, the magic of just being able to be there.
And, true, it isn't just Mac. I have a friend who went to the Holy Land with her church group, and walked the path that our Lord and Savior walked. Amazing to even think of that possibility.
I live in the country, and NO I do not get out much, but through everyone of you on Sparks, and all my friends, I have seen France, Europe, Nigeria, Wales, Italy, Scotland, and many more. Through all of you, I see the beauty of this world. The wonders of this world.
I laugh at blogs, I have cried with some of the blogs, but in all things, I live in all of you. Through pictures of gardens, lakes, and ponds, majestic mountain scapes, through cities and small towns, I live through all of you. Family reunions, birthdays, funerals, illness, weddings, kids having problems with school, racing events, everything.
So today, I want to thank all of you, for making my world, my life a fulfilling and wonderous place.
Love to all of you. Joyce
