Well, as you can see, I am up-and-at-'em quite early this morn. I have lots to do and the clock is ticking away quickly. I did take last night off from work, due to extreme exhaustion, and the after effects of Olive Gardens Soup. UGH! SO, off to the cow tanks I go, to ensure that they have water. Then, to my own projects. Have a lovely day!
P.s. Isn't in nice to just leave scissors lay :0)
It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air.

Take Care, all of you......
LOVE THIS MUSIC........turn it up!
p.s. Quote of the day:
Shopping is a woman thing. It's a contact sport like football. Women enjoy the scrimmage, the noisy crowds, the danger of being trampled to death, and the ecstasy of the purchase.

I am sitting here relaxing after the chaos of getting everyone dressed, fed, and sent off to school. It is like a whirlwind EVERY morning here. Everyone CANNOT listen and do what they are told. It is DRIVING me crazy! ARGH!
Okay, off to the cabin to clean. Have a great day!

This coming weekend, all of my family is traveling to Jeff's parents in Paxton. He is taking them for a weekend of fun with their cousins! The kids are ecstatic! They can't wait! Me, too. I have some serious projects to get done here @ home. Yep, I will be home working. I have no vacation left.... UGH! So, I am just fine with staying behind to get my Christmas stuff out, clean Meggie's room, clean my office and ect. I hope everyone has a great time! I know I will!
We spent the day at the farm, doing odds and ends. I have lots of laundry from the cabin in the works. It seems that the last folks (who were there 4 nights) used every towel in the joint! I have to clean again for guests arriving Friday, too. We got to snuggle Miss Miranda, too. She is soooooo precious! The kids all love to snuggle her.
Well, I am going to work at 6:00 am. YUCK! But, I hope to be home by 1:00 p.m. I have lots of projects for the train to accomplish!
Have a great day!

Hot Cranberry Cider
Our ornery boys came up with this entertainment last night. Andy said, "WHOOOO what an AWESOME ride!" Yep, thrill seekers we have on our hands....Uh OH! Are we in for it? Anyhow, they had a great time, and Jeffey and I laughed our butts off at them! Tee Hee! FUNNY! Well, the candle party was fun. Then, I went to bet at midnight. The BNSF called me in at 1:30 am. OUCH! That hurt.....
K, have a great day... Not sure what we are up to yet?!?!?

Yesterday, the ranch neighbors held a baby shower for Miranda. It was a good time seeing everyone, & having some apple pie. YUM! Yes, Mom made it. Anyhow, little Miranda has fat rolls on her legs now. CUUUUTTTE! I love fat babies! And we took their family picture....hopefully I will be able to post a few later today.
Oh, I learned to knit, too. Yep, I got this loom thingy @ Walmart. It took me a few hours to knit a scarf! Cool, huh?
Well, I got my picture for the Christmas cards. Just need to cut them apart and add to the cards, and then I will be done! YEA! Anyone else need cards? I am for hire ;) ;)
Well, lots to do..... take care

A friend of mine is selling throws again this year for Christmas. You know what they are, the thingy that you throw over your bed to keep you warm. I only have the one attached sample (above photo) to show you now. I may have already solicited a few of you so if this is a repeat request, I apologize. They are $63.00 each ---- I know it sounds expensive, but they are really good quality. I am getting 2 --- one for my bed and one for my sofa. Have a look, and let me know if you are interested. Orders are due by this weekend...
Well, waiting to go to work. I have some errands to run, and visit some friends.
Thank Heavens for great friends and family!
Hugs............................2 all of U!
Have a great day!
p.s. Turn it up and dance.... it is good for the soul.

Today is the super THURSDAY! YEA! I will be taking Matt to Chadron, getting myself a haircut, and doing a little shopping. YIPPEE!
It is a gray, dreary day. I am NOT letting that affect my wonderful day, nor the scale!
Meow. is living in the garage now. Meggie and I fixed her up with a bed, water dish, and littler box. She was in her box sleeping when we left for bed.
Well, not much happening here. Jeffey to go to work this afternoon. He is back to Edgemont. And probably be there for awhile. The Helpers are going higher in seniority now. It is just life....good thing for seniority; as I am not good at ass-kissing!
Have a great one!
p.s. please keep on praying for my pals.

Yes, you read correctly. Our cat, "meow", has made the long journey from Unckie & Aunties to our back deck. AMAZING! "I have heard of that happening...but?" was my reply. Yes, it is our cat. And Auntie hasn't seen her near their barn for quite a long time. So, it is weird, strange and bizarre!!!!!!!!! Jeffey still doesn't want her in the house, as she had a peeing problem (reason she went to the farm). So, she can stay, just outside. Jeffey gave her tuna, and some loves. The kiddo's are thrilled! Animals are pretty curious creatures!
Okay, I am off today by mistake. I put in for Thursday, and mistakenly got the wrong date! OOPS... So, we will roll with it! I think that I may have to lay off tomorrow to be able to take Matt to his appt. We will see. I don't want to miss my Thursdays. I love them!
Jeffey is home, too. So, let's go shopping! I am trying to talk him into it, yet! YIPPEE! He is not responding.... pay day is tomorrow, come on? Too bad Hobby Lobby is so stinking far....
I got off work at 11:30 last night, and came home to my hubby waiting up for me. We had a beer and worked on my laptop. It is not quite right.... we will see.
Okay, have a great day

Yep, I did it again! I changed my background. I think I will try to do this daily, keep it fresh ;)....
Today, I worked until 4:45 am, then went to bed. Alarm went off @ 9:40 am. Drove like the dickens out to the farm to help chase cows. BRRRRR! It was cold on my horse. Good thing that the engine keeps my legs warm. Then Andy went to the CSC game with his buddy Tyler and his family. Matt stayed with Gma & Papa. Meggie came into town with me, and stayed with Heath and RJ, so that Lisa and I could go to Chadron for the craft shows and a jewelry party. We didn't get to the jewelry party , as the BNSF called me in to work AGAIN! ARGH! So, we raced through Walmart at mach-10.... then came home just in time for me to get to work. Anyhow, we agreed to have candle party (Party-Lite) on Nov. 21st. All of you are more than welcome to have some dessert and drinks with us. AND, Lisa bought a new purse...LOVE IT! Then, I got all inspired with the fuzzy-cuddly scarves at the craft show.... I think that will be my newest craft. Okay, Jeffey due home any minute. Kids are tucked in..... nigh- night all of you!
p.s. HOLY CRAP! I have more that 2500 hits! GEEZE!

Today, I planned on going to Shane's parents funeral. The weather got in the way of that.... SO, I was there in spirit for the K. family. My heart goes out to each of them.... it was a devastating tragedy... I pray that the K. Family are okay, and that they grieve with the Lord at their sides. I, too, am trying to figure out why our precious Lord would let this happen.... sometimes we cannot see the purpose, only to move forward and live each day to the fullest; we never know what may happen to ourselves and our loved ones.
Godspeed & courage in your healing journey K. family! My heart is with you!
"This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
GOTTA LOVE LITTLE BOYS Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter. The man at the counter asked the older boy, 'Son, how old are you?''Eight,' the boy replied. The man continued, 'Do you know what these are used for?' The boy replied, 'Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike. Right now, he can't do either one.

"Yea! It snowed, Mommy!" We immediately got our new snow boots & pants out to try-on. Then, geeze, might as well go out and try them out since school doesn't start until 10:00. YIPPEE!! Meggie found her baby outside frozen with ice, too!
I slept like crap last night. The trees were banging on the house, and the wind gusting was awful! Sometime in the night the power went out, and then came back on. What a nasty first storm of the season! I feel like I want to jump into my coffee to warm up! BRRRR!
I think I will go make a fire!
Take Care and try to have a good day! I am 1st out, and think I will work on cleaning my office..... get my thoughts together for Christmas projects.
p.s. Please put all of us into your prayers; Lot's going on in our lives that we need to lift up!
P.s.s. Check out Shaye M. 's blog and the B/W photo's..... I'm inspired!
