Another Day At Home

I find myself home all day alone, which is not a BAD THING. I am thankful that Dh will be coming home soon. DS 18 had a soccer game after school so that's why this late in the day I find myself alone, Of course I do have my friends that are in my computer :) DS 19 stopped by for a while today and took a shower then off again. Was nice to see him, now that he is not living at home and I am not worrying about him all the time , and staying on his back.

Hi Jaye, excited you read my blog. I have been following your blog for a while and really enjoy your writings. You are a very busy Lady, I know you are enjoying your new babies.
I was not sure I wanted anyone to find my blog, it seems to me writing about things is scary that people will know me to well (what do i have to hide)?? Ha Ha--That I will not tell!!! Wanting to see if any of my adult children find it? Any way I have so enjoyed reading Jaye and others blog and realizing we all do the best we can.

Thanks also for the message Diane.

Well today seems better for the outlook on business and our lifesyle. I guess God wants us to be willing to give things up if it come to that, we shall see..hugs to all

Fall Time

Today is another beautiful fall day. The first time I have spent much time out side is today. I cleaned off patio and washed out side furniture down, having a swim party for Church class Saturday(maybe a little chilly for swimming) so wanted all to be clean.
Also found some tulip and other bulbs in my garage, they were probably too old to plant, but since it was a pretty day I planted them any way, so it will be excited to see if they come up in March or April.
Still praying for God to give DH's family business direction day by day as the economy seems to going down. I just pray that we will Glorify God what ever happens.
This has been a good quiet week here, staying close to home because of gas shortage. I did attend Bible Study on Thur. So thankful we have a wonderful teacher that helps us study Gods word. Until later===========

Good Morning, This is a lovely fall day. The week-end went by fast, trying to remember the highlights of it. Went to an Awanas conference on sat. and that took up the whole day, was very informative, now if I will act on some of the things I learned. It did help motivate me some.
Sunday was Church Day and Pastor teaching and Preaching was what I need to hear and Do!!

About a job?? Still no clear direction, no calls for subbing today, so guess I will go put in the application at another county. It seems that I will need to go to work. I have enjoyed the last ten yr. of being a mom and housewife, but things do change. So if it is Gods will so will I change.

Did you notice, I finally got the background working....I am sooooooo proud!!!

Hi Today, I am all excited, I though I had read direction clear enough to change my back ground..Did not happen, unless you are seeing black and white polka dots. I did see the little banner advertising where I found the background...So please any of you 20,30,or 40's that could tell this Fabulous Fifty's girl how to accomplish this ,I would be grateful!!!!
Not a whole lot going on around the home front, no calls to work this week, is this good or bad? Thinking if things do not change soon, we will be needing insurance so today a job seems needed real soon. But remembering "Trust in the Lord with All thine Heart: and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. So that is what iIwill do!!! Hope all are having a great day!!!

Computer fast

Well I am back after a 3 day fast from the computer, trying to break the reading hours at night and checking the computer many times a day when I am home. My purpose also when I thought about the computer, I would talk with God, Pray for people and things close to my heart. So for me that was a good thing. I missed reading every ones blogs, but I did survive.
On Friday had lunch with dS 19, he has not lived at home for the last 2 months so do not hear from him much, so it was good to see he can survive without me...can you say (co-dependant).
Saturday Spend the day with DH and 24 yr. old daughter, went to S. Ga. to see some houses. Sunday was Church, Monday babysit sweet little grandson, he is 1 yr. old and took his nap on schedule so that was a good day. Today was off to lunch with a group to a quaint restaurant an hour away. So life is Good in the Fifties.
Soon hope to learn more about putting on pictures on this blog. Also would love to do one of the free backgrounds, but after trying almost every night it just has not happened!!!
Also my life may be taking some sharp turns, after being wanting for nothing for the last 11 yrs.
life will be changing soon for me unless a miracle happens and God is able to make it happen. But it he does not . I know he has another plan!! Pray that my faith stays strong!!!

This Week

Wow, Already Wednesday so where has the week gone? Monday was grandparents day at Granddaughters school, she is in kindergarten so this is our first grandparents day there, we still have 1 Sr. there and 3 already finished so was kinda funny going as grandparents instead of parents. We had a good time she was able to leave with us after the program ,so she went with us on a few errands and of course a visit to Chick-fil-a and the playground. It was a fun time.

As for the new car?? Nothing happened yet, salesman and Dh kinda dealing via telephone, DH stated a price he is willing to pay and both cars are still in the running. I am still (in my prayers )pulling for the larger one.) But will be thankful for either one.

Yesterday DS 18 was home not feeling well, I helped him with a bookreport.... Prayers go up for all home school parents and teachers.... see ya

New Car

Today we went looking at new cars. That is not my favorite thing to do, I do not like the games of buying a car. We went to 3 lots. I wish My sweet DH would just go get one and bring it home. We looked at Honda's, DH looking at a Civic but my eyes wandered to a Accord. Of course it is larger not as good gas millage and cost lost more $$$$$. So we shall see what the next few days bring.

Mental Health Day

Today I am taking a Mental Health Day..So what is that you ask? For me it is a day that I do not have to go anywhere. I sleep as late as I want, I do household chores at the pace I want. No one is home, I am not expecting any company, I choose what Phone calls to take and I try to be Still in My Mind and Emotions to Remember God is God and he is still in control.

I know with small children this kinda day may not be possible, but would like to recommend to to any one that can do it. I know some people get energized with always being around others but that is not the case with me. I need quite time with Just God and myself to regroup from everyday life. This is something I enjoy being in this stage of life "The Fabulous Fifties".

Hi All, back again, my idea about blogging at least every other day did not work out.

My week last week was NOT Fabulous Fifties!! I subsituted in a public school kitchen and had the honor to work with 2 witches!!! needless to say to be 50 something working by a hot oven, making yeast rolls and I am talking MANY rolls not knowing what I am doing after being laughed and talked about and not helped all week by my 2 co-workers..(I EXPLODED) i had forgotten I knew how to say those kinds of words. I had to ask forgivess for my words, but I meant every thing I said. Needless to say they did not say another word to be the rest of the day:) Neeedless to say i will not be returning to that school.. But on to another school tomorrow, hope it is better. Hope everyone is having a great week!!
