" Nice Rainy Day and Weekend "

Saturday, November 29, 2014

Yes, We are receiving a God Send of Rain this weekend, haven't see the wet raindrops for some time. A couple of weeks ago we received a drizzle of rain for three or four days, which dampened the ground, but this newest rain storm is finally giving us a good soaking, with snow up in the mountains close by Reno and Tahoe I am sure they are enjoying it for the Thanksgiving Weekend skiers. emoticon We are very Thankful for God's Care of Us.


Back on my daily exercise again, I had to stop for a week.

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I spent last week with my oldest daughter going to Canada again. We had to take care of some divorce final tasks, and are now back at home. Very tiring for both of us because we both had bad colds and neither feeling like making a trip, but were on a short time schedule.

We I got back home my patience wore out waiting20 minutes just for the little laptop to boot up and it was hard to do anything on it, but sit and look at the spinning mouse. It was very frustrating, so I purchased another new computer. Now I wish that I can get my body up and running as efficiency as this nice machine. I am so far behind in my exercise, because the trip was so intense.

We left on Sunday about Noon, and arrived to our destination Monday night about 6pm. Tuesday took care of all the business and headed back to the good ole USA on Tuesday afternoon. We arrived back home Wednesday night at 8:30pm. This was the fastest and longest trip for both of us. My daughter has been dealing with this divorce and her husband made it very hard on her as he stopped giving her any help or income since this last Jan. She had to live on the money, that she could earn from a part time job working as a sale clerk. It was very hard on her, but that is all in the past now. She is on to a better happier, and healthier life.

    You are always so upbeat no matter what the circumstances. I am glad the worst is over for you and you DD and I am sure you will give your DD the inspiration and strength to see this through. It IS tough. I took that route 49 years ago when it was a stigma to divorce, and my second child was a newborn. I've never looked back.
Good luck to you both and hope your DH and youngest are both well again!

    Thanks, for all your kind comments, we are back to our daily routine now, my hubby is very happy I'm not off on any more trips, he has never like it when I must be gone. He took care of our youngest daughter when she got sick missed a couple days, He was a good doctor mom, except for when he came down with what ever, daughter and I had with our health problems. He also hates to be sick. We are all fine now.

    Yes life gets in the way of exercise and eating right especially when you are sick on top of it. I hope by now that you and your Daughter are feeling better! She has nowhere to go but up now and that is wonderful! Give your Daughter my best. I've been right where she is now.

    Clean the slate, and take care of yourselves. I think that is our hardest thing to do, remember to take time out for us. And, the next thing you know, we have health problems.

Have Happy days!

Time to Clean, Organize and Straighten the Garage ! !

Monday, September 15, 2014

Last week I began working in our Garage. A large job. Accumulations of items there is almost overwhelming. I really do hate clutter and so does my daughter. Much of her stuff that seems to be in her way, she will place items and clothing she no longer wears out in the garage. This week is my time to try to give many, of our not needed thing, to those people that can use what is out there. It has been building up taking up our space over time. I might even have a few thing to sale in my Oldest daughter and Grand daughters Yard Sale next week. emoticon I am hoping to complete the Cleaning today.

Waiting all year for my Night Blooming Narcissia to Bloom

Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Finally tonight my Night Blooming Narcissia finally opened up to show me the Beautiful God Given Blossom. This plant isn't very much to look at and is a very unusual. It only has a couple times a year when it blooms. This is the beginning of the blossom !

This is a photo after is open and shows it Beauty, it is such a treat to finally see it. The Blossom only stays open during the night and it closes back up during the day. It does this about three night, then dries up and falls off. I took this just after it opened last night about
2 am in the morning of Sept.3rd.

The Beautiful Mount Shasta

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Last week we returned from a very short trip to Canada, It was a much needed trip. I will spare you all the stressful week that we were in at the time, but we my oldest daughter and I did enjoy seeing the very Beautiful Shasta Mountain as we were driving back home to Sacramento County California. Here is what it looks like in August 2014. Seeing this beauty brings to our thoughts about how lucky we are to live in such a Beautiful Country, and how Thankful we are to God to be living here.
