Random Dozen and “I Won…You Win” continues…

Before you get to my Random Dozen I want to let everyone know that Heidi over at 2 Thinks To Share, y’all remember she was the last winner of I Won…You Win, well she has got her giveaway up and running. If you want to toss your name into the wooden shoe to be eligible for the next round of I Won…You Win then head on over to her blog and check it out!

Good Luck y'all!!

Now on to Random Dozen.


1. How do you feel about the marshmallow Easter Peeps?

They are cute to look at but if I am going to enjoy a sweet treat then I want a good handful of jelly beans or some chocolate.

2. Chickens are notoriously nervous creatures. When you are nervous, what is the best way to calm down?

Sometimes I bake, I once went on a muffin/cookie baking marathon during a particularly stressful parental situation. I went through several five pound bags of flour and gave my cookie sheets and muffin tins a good work out. I have also been know to console myself with a good piece of chocolate or giant mocha latte with extra foam, and of course I can always count on the escapist qualities of a really good movie.

3. People say, "April showers bring May flowers." Do you enjoy Spring rains?

Sure, there is nothing more relaxing then listening to a gentle spring rain shower, toss in a good latte or a nice hot cup of tea, a quiet house and good book and that is my definition of a really great afternoon.

4. When I was randomly flipping through TV channels this week, I saw a show in which tattoo parlor employees received tattoos of a co-worker's face on their bodies. I can't imagine having a portrait of a colleague tattooed on me. But if someone forced you to receive a portrait tattoo (face only) of anyone, who would it be? Why?

WOW! How to pick….hmmmmm! All of these could be very likely candidates!

5. Would you rather have a tattoo (any kind) or a nose ring?

Tattoo! Every time we go on vacation to a Caribbean resort or have been on a cruise I always feel a bit left out being the only person without a tattoo, but my regret fades quickly when I think of the long term effects, the pain and that fact that I could never possible make up my mind on what I would have tattooed, both where or what. I can’t decide what I want to hang on my living room wall let alone make a decision on a tattoo that would be with me the rest of my life.

I will also add that being a huge Dancing with the Stars fan I am always a bit put off by the women floating gracefully around the dance floor with there Ginger Rodgers ball gowns with yards of chiffon and sparkly sequins and then they pirouette around and there is giant tattoo across their shoulder blades or a barbed wire tattoo around their bicep. Pamela Anderson has one and it really is very distracting. Kelly Osborne had multiple tattoos last season and it so detracted from the glamour and the beauty of the ball room dancing.

6. Do you have any special plans for Easter?

Church then probably lunch with the family!

7. Cadbury Eggs or Reese Eggs?

Neither, Jelly Beans!!

8. What was the last thing/person you took a picture of?

The blossoming tree in my front yard!

 IMG_1171 IMG_1173

As I collecting various Easter thing yesterday I brought home an egg coloring kit. We had not colored eggs in years. The DD and a neighbor friend spent a few fun minutes yesterday taking a trip down memory lane and colored some Easter Eggs. It was fun y’all!


9. What book are you reading now, or what was the last one?

I am re-reading “Breath of Snow and Ashes” so I can refresh my memory before beginning “Echo in the Bone”

10. What do you think is the most difficult task when it comes to Spring cleaning?

This question implies that you actually participate in the act of Spring Cleaning.

11. How many pairs of flip-flops do you own?

Two, that I wear all the time, I have others but I’m just to lazy to actually go and count how many there are! Sadly my days of wearing the cute flip flops are over. I have to wear the unattractive kind that give me a bit more support for my old aching feet.

Project 365 – Week 13

Sunday, March 21

As Saturday was so jam packed with birthday and out of town family activity I took full advantage of my Sunday Sabbath and rested all day. So no pictures for me. However I will say that the marking of the first day of spring was a bit on the cold and dreary side so there was not much worth photographing in the cold drizzle that fell!

Monday, March 22

I am not sure what it is, but if memory serves we had the same issue last spring. Apparently there is a small burrowing animal, my guess is it is a small mole or chipmunk that has returned to my back yard. It has again sent our sweet little puppy over the edge. He is now on a mission to dig up every square inch of my garden in search of whatever is stirring just beyond his reach.

What’s the diff I ask?

I watch all the food network chef’s talk about the San Marzano tomatoes, well we shall see if it is worth paying nearly triple the price for a can of tomatoes. As dollars go at $2.33 for a 28 oz can is (in my opinion) a bit pricey, so they had better be the best tomatoes I ever put in my sauce. I also got some fancy tomato paste in a tube, sort like toothpaste. I will see how this works too. I will admit every time I see one of the food network chefs' using that little tube of paste it looks really cool. Also it seems that I never seemed to be able to find it on the shelf at the grocery store. Well no wonder, it was hiding behind one of those hanging things that they put those weird promotional items on like the hot pink plastic lid removers we can’t live without! Well there it was peaking out behind the lid removers so I snapped up a tube. On a practical note most of the time when tomato paste is called for in a recipe it hardily ever calls for using the whole can so this may be just the ticket.

The Elisha Winn House is just down the street from my house. In the fall they have a craft festival there. It is a historic site with several turn of the century house and other outbuilding in the property as well. Well I have been driving by, I pass it almost every few day in my day to day driving around, and every time I pass buy I would crane my neck to appreciate the beautiful stand of daffodils that are right out front along the road. Well Wednesday morning I tossed my camera in the car and vowed that I would stop on my way home from bible study and get a few pictures.

I just love daffodils y’all!



Thursday, March 25

Ever heard of a Red Pummelo? It’s huge and has to be some variety of grapefruit! I put the lime in to give you some perspective on just how big it is. It about twice the size as a normal grapefruit. I am eager to try this and see what it is like!!!!!!

Friday, March 26

My new camera has a setting on it called “Face Recognition.” Well clearly further reading of the instruction manual needs to be done as I had to delete several very nice pictures of the back of my granddaughters head. I will say I hit the Grandbaby jackpot this week. I got to see her on Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Yea for me!!!!


Saturday, March 27

It was a gorgeous spring day. The little tree in my front bed is bursting with flowers.




I am not sure what kind of tree it is as it was here when we moved in. I will say that since we removed almost half of the contents in the front bed to other places in our yard I am much happier with the placement of this little tree. I also took the pruning shears to it in a major way and got it to actually look like a tree.


These are not in my yard but I still get to enjoy them as they are planted right next to one of my front beds. I just love the frilly lacy look of these daffodils. They are amazing. I have a bag of daffodils waiting to be planted this fall and then I will have some daffodils of my own next spring.

IMG_1117 IMG_1116

Well that does it for me for this weeks edition of project 365!

For more participants y’all head over to Sara and check out all the other 365’ers!

Flashback Friday Continued…OK I had to go find some pictures

In all the reminiscing yesterday got me to thinking of all Easter egg hunts my children participated in. One picture kept comming to mind. Why is it that it was in the last photograph album I pulled off the shelf. Another reason to label the spines with specific dates I'd say.

Anywhoo here it is.

My son (about 8 years old) never wasted any time getting his basket full to the brim!


Blessings and Happy Easter y’all!

Flashback Friday

I am going to skip to the end and go straight for the last two questions.

You might also share how your Easter today is similar or different to your childhood?

If you are a regular visitor here you are familiar with what I am about to share. Coming from a home broken by divorce I do not have a lot of warm fuzziest about my childhood years. So for me looking back is sometimes not a happy thing for me.

With that being said what I can claim with a joyous shout is that things for me now are triumphantly different. I can look back at my children's past with many warm fuzzes and many happy memories.

How many pastel colored eggs did I fill with little slips of paper with Easter scriptures tucked inside along with a piece of candy? Too many to count!

How many Easter egg hunts out at the campground did I take my children too? Lots and lots!

How many Easter morning did my little ones race down stares before church to scour the  house in search of the eggs that the Easter bunny had left over night?  Again, lots and lots!!

I am very thankful that life is about choices and for me and my family we choose Jesus.

We always made sure that both our children knew the real reason for Easter. We had fun with the Easer Bunny but they always knew that with out Jesus there would be no reason for the Easter Bunny to even show up. We had neighbor hood Easter egg hunts which were great fun. We would all pool our resources and then we would rotate hosting from year to year, that was a hoot. It was not uncommon to find lingering unfound eggs sometime years after the fact tucked away under a pile of leaves or sticks in my yard.


Does any Easter stand out particularly?

Yes! The Easter season of 2003. It was on Good Friday. Several years ago our youth did a program where they would reenact the crucifixion out at our campground. They would have a brief sermon under the arbor and then we would all take a short walk down to the cross. We had never done this as a family before, and it was such a powerfully moving experience that God prompted me to write it down. It impacted me so very much as well as my child. I am thankful that I was obedient in writing it all down.

So I share with you:

“Are Those Real People?”

April 21, 2003

We arrived as the sun was setting on Good Friday. The last rays of the daylight were filtering thought the branches of the surrounding trees.  A small crowd of people mingle about, greeting one another, friendly handshakes and warm hugs embrace the mood. The air is cool and clean from the day’s rain, but I was comfortable with the light jacket I had on but you could feel the chill of evening approaching. I look around and felt completely at peace with the familiar setting. It is one of my favorite places.

Campground. When I get to heaven I will thanks the saints of our church of so long ago for having the foresight to set aside this wonderful place. It is truly Holy Ground, for when I stand upon it I feel so very close to God.

I look around, visually taking in my surroundings. The ferns, foliage and flowers are always a welcome sight. The ancient weather worn cabins with their dull and slightly rusty tin roof’s sit just outside the arbor. They form a protective circle around the arbor.

The equally ancient arbor made of hand hewn timbers and wooden plank pews stands at the very center of this amazing place. The soft and fragrant saw dust that covers the earth beneath its sheltered rafters. The sound your feet make as you walk upon the sawdust. It cushions your footstep and makes a soft whooshing sound. Like an old hymn. Even during the hottest of July days there always seemed to be a breeze blowing for our evening worship services. But it’s not July, it’s early spring and there is a very distinct crisp coolness to the evening. I am flooded over with years of memories of this place. Happy and amazing moments as well and a few heartbreaking and tearful moments as well. I truly do love this place.

This is a special gathering; we have come to prepare ourselves for the awesome gift of Christ resurrection.

Our guest speaker for the evening was a woman named Clarissa. She is a descendant of salves. When her ancestors were freed from their bondage here in America they returned home to their native Liberia. This woman stood before us and preached the word with excitement and passion.

I listened with straining ears to filter through her thick accent and hear her message. It is the message of Christ crucified. The powerful message of why we have gathered under the arbor unfolds to our hungry ears. Her message to us is brief but very mighty in her passionate delivery.

“Christ was crucified and died on the cross for me.”

“My sins have been washed away in His blood.”

“I am forgiven.”

I listen and it floods over me again. The ultimate sacrifice had been paid for me before I was even born. I push the tears from my cheeks and continued to listen.

I would later find out that she and her family had been persecuted and beaten, flogged for preaching the word of God in Liberia. Her son was so severely beaten that he died. He literally gave his life for Christ. This woman was persecuted and forced to leave her own country for her faith. She is further forced into leaving her daughter behind in Liberia. We all realized that we had been in the presence of a modern day apostle preaching the word of God.

Clarissa’s message for the evening was powerful, but the experience was far from over. The evening was to take a turn that will impact me for the rest of my life.

When our modern day apostle had finished we are invited to follow two young people dressed in Hebrew attire. We rise from our pew and follow slowly and quietly. The ground is uneven and rocky in places so I step lightly and deliberately. It is fully night now and the road is light with torches. Off in the distance I see the three crosses. These three cross have been a common place sight for many years at the campground.


From the back door of my cabin I look upon them ever day during campmeeting. Every time you enter the campground you see them. But tonight as we walk down that torch light path I catch a brief glimpse of them and my eyes do not believe what they are seeing.

It is a sight too real for me to take in and I avert my eyes and stare at the ground.

I continue down the path, myself, my husband and my children all holding hands, drawing closer to the cross with each step. With each footfall the cross looms larger in the darkness. Finally I am there. I am standing at the foot of the cross.

This is a real cross with a real person hanging upon it. There are three crosses each with someone hanging, still and motionless upon it. It was fully evening by now and there was a very pronounce chill in the air. I think to myself “How cold they must be?” I am standing there warm and snug in my jacket. They, in turn, are hanging there nearly naked draped only in a small loin cloth exposed to the cold night air.

They, three members of our youth program, hang upon the cross so very still. The two on either side, the criminals, they hang there with their heads down and arms stretched tight with hands dangling at the end. Then you look to the middle. There is Jesus. He hangs there with His crown of thorns pushed into His flesh. You can see the blood stains on His face and loin cloth.

On the ground in front of the crosses kneel three women. Off to the side are two roman guards. If I did not know better I would think that we have been transported back in time two thousand years.

The world around me is silent, but for the noises of the wooded landscape. The trees and rocks that have stood at the campground for over one hundred and seventy five year’s envelope me as I take in the sight before me.

I hear the footfalls of those behind me. Those that I love surround me, my husband and children and close friends. Some among us fall to their knees and other just stand silently and pray. I stand next to my husband and command myself to look at the re-enactment before me. I force myself to look at the reality, the brutality that my Lord underwent for my salvation.

Off in the distance singing begins. I look at the bodies hanging on the cross so still and motionless. I have to tell myself that this is a re-enactment. But the power of the scene before me is overwhelming.

I feel a small tug on my jacket sleeve and I am thankful to look away from the cross. My 8 year old daughter is there and she has a look on her face that I will never forget.

She motions with her hand, pulling me closer to her. I place my finger to my lip's suggesting to her that she speak in a hushed voice. She quietly whispers her question in my ear “Are those real people ?”

How do I answer this question? Only moments before I was myself, a grown adult, questioning the reality of the sight before me.

“Yes, they are real people honey.” I whisper. “But they are only pretending. They are not really dead.” I placed my hands on her small shoulder and drew her close to me. We stood together and looked at the cross.

A moment later there was a second small tug on my sleeve.

“Are you sure those are real people?” she asked again.

I bend down to her and reassure her yet again that “Yes, they are real people. Remember the Easter story we read in your bible about Jesus dying on the cross?”

I get a small nod of her head and I continue on “Well these people are acting out the Easter story! The are really not dead, they are just pretending. We know that Jesus is a real person and He died on the cross a long time ago. We quietly talked about how He chose to do this for her and for me. Can you imagine a person choosing to do that just for you?”

I got a confused nod in response and placed a small kiss on her cheek and we both turn to look up at the cross.

What an experience! I wonder what she will remember about that night in the years to come. I will never forget her simple question to me though.

“Are those real people?”

I must never forget the reality of what took place on that hill at Calvary so long ago.

Yes! Jesus was and is a real person.

Yes! He chose to go through the unspeakable brutal act for my salvation.

I must force myself to look upon the cross daily and remember the reality of His sacrifice. It is so easy to avoid. My own experience of that night taught me that.

As I was walking down the path I too looked away.

I did not want to look at what was before me.

I too did not want to take in the reality of the image I saw.

It was too painful. It was too real. It was too horrible to imagine.

I must however take it in, absorb the truth that Jesus died for me while I was still a sinner. I have been paid for with His blood.

Romans Chapter 5 verse 8 tells us “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Yes! Jesus did this for me.

Yes! Jesus did this for you!

Yes! He was and is real!

Amen, Amen and Amen!

Well that’s it for me for this Flashback Friday. For more Flashback Friday participants head over to Mocha with Linda !

Blessing and Happy Easter!

He Is Risen!

Then and Now…and you asked so here it is “My Alarm Clock!”

I love digital y’all. It just frees me up to take as many pictures as I want. Don’t you wish you had all your older pictures in digital format? I know I do. That is a project for another day. How long would it take to scan all the hard copies of all the pictures I have in albums????  But I digress.

I have been enjoying the blossoming of my Christmas Cactus even though it waited until March to start producing blooms.

Here is my Christmas Cactus on January 9, 2009.


Flash forward to this past Thursday, March 18, 2010. It is about twice the size as it was last year. I am wondering if it has decided that it is now an Easter Cactus since it waited until March to bloom?


I’m wondering will it ever even back out and start  blooming at Christmas????

Any Cactus expert out there???

EDIT: after reading all the inquires in my comments about my alarm clock I snapped a few pictures of it this morning.

It’s La Crosse, the little side piece pivots and you can either direct it at the wall or the ceiling to project the time/temperature. It cycles back and forth between the two. It is wonderful to wake up on a super cold mornings and see what the temp is. Before I moved I had a walking partner and we would meet very early in the morning to walk, rain or shine. Our only rule was we drew the line at below freezing temperatures. I asked for this clock specifically for my birthday one year because on cold winter morning I got tired of dragging my butt out of bed just to check what the temp was. This way I did not even have to get out of bed to tell if it was to cold to walk. Loved it!!!!!



Click here to get all the details on it. It’s great and I totally love it! If memory serves my sister got it at Kohl's?????

Blessings y’all!

Random Dozen

Random Dozen is being hosted by Southlakesmom while Linda practices the ministry of presence to a friend in the hospital.

So here is my contribution to this weeks Randomness!

1.  What is your favorite sign of Spring?

This! When the tiny green shoots start poking their heads out of the ground I get just giddy with excitement!


2.  Did you remember to spring forward on March 14?  If not, how did it impact your day?

I did not remember to do it, but I have an automatic clock that updates all by it’s self. So Sunday morning when I woke up and remembered that we had forgot to set the clocks ahead I was thankful for my little bedside alarm clock. It even gives me the temperature outside and projects it on the wall so I can see it in the wee hours of the morning.

3.  If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what vegetable would you plant in a garden this year?

In fact I am heading over to some kind of outdoor store this coming weekend to get the necessary soil amendments to begin prepping my veggie garden. This year I am going to plant more tomatoes, green peppers, cucumbers, sweet peppers and zucchini. I will plant green beans again and maybe even a row of corn down the middle. I am also branching out and have made a small spot for an herb garden. I have already got my rosemary planted and I will do what ever herbs I can get my hands on this year as well.

4.  If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what fruit would you plant?

If I had the space I would love to plant cantaloupe and watermelons!!!!

5.  What is your least favorite insect?

In the house ants and flies, in the garden those nasty flat brown stink bugs or what ever you call them and aphids.

6.  March 22 was World Water Day. To celebrate, here are some water questions. Do you drink bottled water? If so, what brand?

I very rarely drink bottle water, good ole tap water is fine for me.

7.  Have you ever been somewhere that it was not safe to drink the local water? If so, how did you handle that?

We have been to certain Caribbean resort areas but most of the larger hotels all take precautions to make sure that the water is safe to drink for their paying customers. I did however have a very unpleasant experience once while in Cancun on a day trip on a small glass bottom boat that will forever be etched in my memory, it was not fun!

8.  How many glasses of water do you drink per day?

In a perfect world 8 –8 oz glasses, on a normal day maybe 16 or more ounces of just plain water. I drink lots of fluids but sadly I have struggled with maintaining the recommend amount of water per day for a very long time. I hear folks all the time saying things like “Oh your body will adjust to the increased fluid intake!” Well I hate to break it to ya, but not everyone has a bladder the size of Lake Erie! If I drink the recommended amount of water I am in the bathroom almost once an hour, it kinda puts a big crimp in your day if ya know what I mean. OK now I'm thirsty and have to get a drink of water.

9.  March 24 is the birthday of Harry Houdini.  Have you ever watched a professional magic show? Share.

I am a HUGE David Copperfield fan. My husband has gotten me tickets to go see him several times for birthday or anniversary gifts. I just love him. It just boggles the mind. I saw him fly around inside a glass box and then around on the stage for several minutes. All the while you are thinking that you really do know that people can not fly but y’all this guy flew! Just beyond description. If you ever have the chance to go see him do it!

10.  Have you ever been a participant in a professional magic show (up on stage!)?

No but would totally love to do that!

11. March 24 is also the birthday of Steve McQueen and Clyde Barrow. Do you like Westerns or gangster movies?  If so, what is your favorite?

Movie Hound here, so yea I love westerns. My favorites are the oldies but goodies. I love “The Searchers” or “The Cowboys” but then I also love the newer ones as well. “Silverado” was a great film, “Conager” and “Quigley Down Under” I few months ago I found “Lonesome Dove” some station was showing it again and I got to watch it from start to finish. Loved it!

12. (Really random)  What U.S. state that you've never visited would you like to visit someday?

We are planning a trip to the Grand Canyon this summer and I am totally excited about that. I would also love to go to New England area and Washington D.C.


Well that’s it for me!

Y’all head over to Southlakesmom and give the rest of the Random Dozen participants a look see!

Found Them…

One of the things I have noticed about myself and the grieving process is that like most I look for distraction. After returning from the funeral the other day I set about the house doing those things that you put off because you don’t want to do them. The closet in the sitting room off my bedroom got clean out, several church notebooks got cleaned out/consolidated and are sitting aside to take to church to put in the Stephen Ministry storage area and out of my house. In my pursuit to find distraction guess what I found? (Check out my answer to question number 1 from my last Random Dozen.)

My wedding shoes.


I also learned a very valuable lesson. Never tape up a box without first labeling the outside very clearly. The thought that goes through your head when you are young is  “I’ll remember what’s in this box!” Well I pulled three different boxes down, all securely taped up and had to open each and every one because I had absolutely no clue what was inside.

Note to self: Never assume you will remember, your just to old!

On a side note, on Saturday after my grand daughter’s birthday party the family and crew came back to my house for a bit of a visit. My wedding shoes were still sitting on the counter. After I took them out of the box they were a bit on the dirty side and so I gave them a gentle wipe down and had left them on the counter to dry. They are no longer white and sadly with the birth of each child I gained over a shoe size so my wonderful size 9 1/2’s will no longer fit in the petite size 7 of long ago. They have turned from a pristine white to an aged ecru and you can defiantly see the 28 years of age in theses pumps.

My sister picked them up and said “Where did you get these? Are they vintage?”

“Well they are my wedding shoes, so yea I guess you could call them vintage!” I said.

Project 365 – Week 12

I was sitting at the dinner table this past Friday and I commented to my husband that this past week actually felt like at least two weeks. I was tired and still had much to do. Greif clouds your judgment and skews the perception of the passage of time. I did however manage to take my pictures this week. I have recognized that one of the things that helps me at least, is to have something else to focus on from time to time to take my mind off of how sad I am. So taking pictures was a wonderful distraction.

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Very early Sunday morning the first blossoms began to open on my new cherry tree.


Monday,March 15, 2010

I had some shopping (more opportunities for distraction) to do for a friends birthday and I just happen up on this great coffee mug on CLEARANCE!

We were actually reading Galatians 5 and talking about the Fruit of the Spirit in bible study this week so I figured it was a sign from the Holy Spirit…so I bought the cup.

A funeral. 

I could go for a very long time without ever seeing one of these boxes of funeral home Kleenex's. But the reality is that I will probably see many more of them as the years go by. By the end of the funeral I had a rather large bundle of used Kleenexes in my purse.


Wednesday, March 17, 2010

My Christmas Cactus has started to bloom.


Thursday, March 18, 2010

By Thursday afternoon the Cherry tree was bursting with pinkness!


Friday,March 19, 2010

It blooms!


Saturday, March 20, 2010

It was a week, some very sad things happen but then some very wonderful things happen as well. One year ago my sweet little St. Patrick’s Day Grandbaby arrived. We had a beautiful spring day at the park for her first birthday party. Look at that sky, it almost doesn't even look real it’s so perfect and blue and the clouds were just awesome!


I will try to contain myself as I snapped over 100 images at the party. After the week I had it was a wonderful change to celebrate, laugh and eat cake! The little green shamrock was her very own cake. She had a wonderful time getting all green and sticky with frosting!




I will close with these last two pictures.

I found it wonderfully bitter sweet that just outside the pavilion where we had the party was a very small garden with a plaque.



God is so very good. The week started with a very sad farewell, yet as we ended out the week with a wonderful celebration He showed me that even in my grief and sadness over the loss of Aubrey there is still joy.

It’s been a week y’all.
