(CLOSED)
1st up is Spider lily,aka lycoris radicus..My mind always goes to spring flowers when the holidays are over and one of my favorite flowers is the spider lily!
These are easy to grow and have naturalized here in the south,and are native to Asia,Lycoris Radiata is sometimes hardy down to zone 5 or 6 (be sure to mulch in zone 6 and lower).Most times they will bloom the following year after transplanting. They have green foilage in winter.

Plant bulbs in ground about 21/2 inches deep and in a few months you will enjoy the beauty of the red spider lily.You do not have to dig up each year they will go dormant and return the following year.They will reproduce more baby bulbs that you can replant,just dig up and separate..
When it gets ready to bloom a single shoot will come up about a foot and will form the spider lily on top.











It blooms in partial shade as well as full sun!
I have 6 adult bulbs to give away to start your bed!

Fairy Tale Brownie Review! Yum Yum


I have to tell you about some wonderful brownies we got around Christmas!This are top on the list for my family .They are ..Fairy Tale Gourmet Brownies
To begin with they come in a lovely holiday box and each brownie is indivijually packaged for presentaion and freshness.We got an assorted box and this came with the following flavors.Pecan,peanut butter ,caramel,choclate chip,origional and white chocolate.I can say i sampled everyone of them except the white choclate,which my daughter devored christmas morning,and they are simply ...aahhhhh,,delicious!My favorite was the caramel,but all of them are super.These taste like they were fresh and cooked just for us.
My granddaughter summer leigh anne enjoyed half of one and as you can see that was not enough.The choclate on the mouth gives her away as she is trying to get more!Which she did!










Grandson Kolby quickly took his and moved to the corner of the couch,he got comfortable and enjoyed the pecan brownie.Looks like he liked it!What do you think?








This is taken from their website.."Inspired by a treasured family recipe and a commitment to excellence, we created enchanting Fairytale Brownies. Our magical blend indulges your senses with fudgy chocolate goodness, taking you back to fond childhood memories.
Helping us spread this joy is our Brownie, a cheerful fairy of Celtic folklore who delights in performing good deeds. He lives in an enchanted forest tending to the exotic cacao bean trees from which our chocolate is crafted. All of this magic is what you'd expect from a luscious combination of pure ingredients - rich, dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate blended with pure creamery butter and farm fresh eggs. All-natural Fairytale Brownies are certified kosher and free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, preservatives and artificial colors.
Pure chocolate enchantment is as close as your first bite!''


Now i would like to add.I do not typically have lot's of sweets laying around but these are not real sweet.You can enjoy these and not feel like you have cheated your self.These almost taste like,naturally sweet,Not a lot of added nonsence.These can be ordered online and they will quickly arrive.So easy!! They Ship any gift for only $6.95 per address and Delivery in 3 business days guaranteed!
The only negative thing i could say is that the peanut butter one fell apart easily into several peices,It was soft and crumbly and they are a little pricey,around 3.00 each but for gormet brownies they are reasonable.
So do i recommend these??YES! I will be ordering again and this time will try and get a few extras for other family members.Yes these are definately for sharing.For birthdays,holidays,or maybe a special thank you gift
Fairy Tale Brownies
would be perfect.






And right now you can Save up to 50%
on select gifts! If you really want to experiance these largely,they also have bulk brownies available! lol...Maybe order some for the office,they would remember this gift.They have 12 great flavors to choose from.Fairy tale also has coffee(which i want to try) cocoa,nuts and more!
TO TOP all this off you can also Add a PERSONALIZED Greeting Card to your gift!
Add a special message or even upload a digital photo from from your computer!


What are you waiting for? go get some fairytale brownies!



I did not recieve anything free for this review,and is my honest opinion of this product.

Have a blessed and safe new year!

This saddens me

hello EVERYONE,thanks for coming by.

I have a lot on mind right now,things i want to accomplish in the coming year.I am not one for new years resolutions,i don't really think i have ever thought on it before honestly.But this year is different.Maybe because i am getting older ,47 now,maybe just because i am unhappy at the affairs of our nation and it's leaders,just things i see around me happen in general.
I am saddened by the turning away from God ,Jesus and the Holy Spirit that people and our nation have done.We stand in awe at all the bad things happening and at how people have become so cruel.Well that's easy,you take good out and bad moves in! and move in it has.I am disappointed in what the president and congress have done,i am saddened that our president is leading people and nations for a one world government and America stands by thinking it is not going to happen.
I am hopeful when i see the smiles on the grand kids and other children and then a part of me cries for so many that does not have arms to hold them when they are afraid,or someone who cares when they hurt.I am saddened by so many parents/caregivers that are abusing and neglecting their babies.
I am hurt deeply by what drugs and alcohol are doing to our families as well as the user.I have always thought i was born in the wrong era..1880 looks better and better than with the exception of being with my family and seeing the prophecy of the bible coming to happen!Just amazes me so many people are blind to it.

I want to be a better mom,grandma,daughter,sister,aunt,cousin,friend ,but mostly i want to draw closer to God.When i do that i will become all the other i want to be.

Have a wonderful day...

Another sunday in the south~planning easter already

Hi and thanks for coming by!
Church was good today and we had a very nice and fun time in Sunday school but i have fought the most awful headache all day.To the point that i am fighting throwing up as well.This is awful.When Rita came and got the boys i didn't even get off the couch!I was so ,so sick .I fell asleep on the couch after that for a couple hours and Jeff woke me going to town.I ask him to get me some alka seltzer plus,goody powders and a coke.I pray that helps.
The headache is a little better now but still it is there and i am just weak all over.I am stuffy in my head also.I don't know it could be a severe sinus attack..i don't know.i just know it is awful.
Next week we will begin planning our Easter play at church i have high hopes for that.I think it will be a great experience for them and me.Easter is a great time.A time to reflect on what Jesus did for us and to remember he will return.He will return for you and me to save us from all this pain down here.What are you planning for Easter?Besides the church worship and play we have a family and friend Easter party here at the old place.It is always fun,we have dinner on the grounds under he large magnolia trees and then play games with kids and adults and then the big egg hunt for the kids...

Hope your week ahead is wonderful and safe and happy new year!

Merry christmas everyone and A blessed new year ahead!!!!

Santa knocked the power off for 2 hours christmas morning!

Hello everyone!
Hope you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas! We had a really good time and we were blessed in more ways than one.i think my brother said it best when he said there was no reason for the adults to exchange presents we had been given the best present here this year we could have from God.Our whole family as here with the exception of my daughter in law Julie and granddaughter Charlie Mae,they are in Arizona this Christmas with her family.All us siblings and their kids and grands were there with our mom.That was the best we could have had.In this day and time that is a hard thing to come by that we have not been taken away from each other by death or any other thing.It is a blessing indeed and i thank you Lord!
We were at Rita's Christmas morning when kids awoke for presents and Santa flew too ow when he left and knocked out all the power for 4 city blocks in town for 2 hours!So we opened presents by the light coming out of the windows alone..lol..Yep Rudolph was not watching close enough when they flew into the sky from billy kolby and summers house...That story i bet they remember for years,,
The kids were blessed with plenty of gifts and smiles were abound!I do love the spirit of Christmas.We then traveled to my mom's house where we all met and had a bountiful feast of everything we could have wanted..God did bless it once again and the weather was pretty nice too.
I do miss my daughter Julie and baby charlie Mae but they return in Jan. and we shall have their Christmas then...Darrell misses them so and it was sad for him Christmas,i can just imagine....but it is wonderful that they can spend time with Julies dad,sister's and friends there.Merry Christmas Arizona!

Have a great week my online friends..And i can't end this post without saying thank you to all the blogs and sponsor's that helped make our Christmas brighter.i was blessed with several winnings the past couple of months and i am planning a post in the next couple days introducing to these wonderful blogs that i have won giveaways from.THANK YOU ,THANK YOU,THANK YOU!!!!!

~~God bless us all and forgive us

We are and now i am just resting as much as possible .I have been sick for 2 days now and just don't really feel like doing much of anything but sitting here doing what I'm doing! Lol..I do have laundry going but i hang out most of my clothes and the overcast sky today is not helping much.It is damp and dreary in the house,maybe it is just me,and i am just lounging on a ''pallet'' in the living room.The next few days will be hectic so i do hope i am feeling better soon.Today is better than yesterday,i think i may have the flu along with a head cold,,,yuk,,all i can say and please lord heal this...
There are some great Pre Christmas giveaways i am finding so i thought I'd share...

America turning a blind eye

America turning a blind eye to our well being

ok people,now our pets are are putting off more carbon footprint than an SUV!The environmental footprint left by our pets is just way too high!WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP THIS NONSENSE AND LET OUR GOVERNMENT KNOW WE ARE NOT THIS STUPID!Dogs eat too much meat and cats eat too much wildlife...lol..yea my cat eats the rats that spreads disease ..RIGHT!
so what are we suppose to do,eat them!?
Sometimes ,no a lot of times lately ,i wonder who these people are that are in charge of all these ''new findings''?what planet did they come from?They come up with this this crap for their own hidden agendas and laugh at us at home on how dumb we are are and how easily we can be led to slaughter!WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!
this IS LIKE THE HEALTH CARE BILL THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA IS PUSHING...they are doing a test on it today and looks like they are going to slam it through for the president tomorrow so he can say it was a success on the state of the union address coming up!Even though the American people are against it,the majority,they are pushing it like we want it and it will be good for us.NO! i DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR A BABY TO BE SLAUGHTERED IN AN ABORTION..and yes we will when this passes,just wait and see.They are trying to make it look good by giving different states extra money for medicare etc..Who is paying for this people?We are !We will be taxed to death..or starvation one!You better hope you have cattle,pigs,chickens and plenty of ammo to protect your home,family and food very soon!You think i am crazy?Just wait and see.The great America we love is falling fast..Well that's what happens when we move God out,evil prevails!
Have you ever known a time when bills are being passed that the American people are against one behind the other and nothings stopping them?I am afraid nothing short of a rebellion will stop this administration now.And not too mention he is pushing the NEW WORLD ORDER!Don't think so,just google that and you will be floored!
I know all of this has to happen to fulfill the bible,but i also know prayer can hold things off when the time is not right.
This is a scary time for a lot of people and a lot of people are going to be fearful when they find out all of this and more is happening right behind their back...Time is running out to prevent the worse thing this country has ever saw,,,Well maybe not.The native Americans were done this way and America allowed it to happen...I guess we will see it come around on the people again....
PRAYER,and being led by the spirit...only thing to save us from this...
May God forgive us!

Red Velvet Cake and Christmas....


MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE...
dON'T YA LOVE SAYING THAT? i DO...
Something about this time of year that should just lighten your heart and spirits.Maybe because it is the time of year we remember the birth of our savior Jesus.He gave the ultimate gift.Yes i know this did not begin as that,so what!Now that is what it is and i see nothing wrong with taking holidays and turning them into a time to celebrate Jesus....;) after all the devil tries to take all the good things God did and making them bad...RIGHT!
A fellow blogger came by and ask what was red velvet cake,so i am posting a wonderful recipe on this post for it.My blogger friend is Lee the Hot Flash Queen ,take a moment and go by!
The red velvet cake is yummy and this is the closest online recipe i could find..It is VERY close.If you have not tried this heirloom recipe ,this christmas would be a great time to share with your family.Let me know how you like it.My mom always makes this cake for us and we love it!enjoy...




Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Ingredients:
the cake:
2 1/2 c. cake flour
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 TBSP cocoa powder
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 c. buttermilk
2 TBSP (1 oz.) red food coloring
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. white distilled vinegar

FROSTING
12 oz. cream cheese, softened
12 oz. butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 c. confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 c. chopped pecans (optional)


Directions:
1. For the cake: Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, cocoa, and salt into a medium bowl.

3. Beat eggs, oil, buttermilk, food coloring, vanilla, and vinegar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until well combined. Add dry ingredients and beat until smooth, about 2 minutes.

4. Divide batter evenly between 3 greased and floured 8" round cake pans. (I only made a two layer cake, so some of my batter went unused.)

5. Bake cakes, rotating halfway through, until a toothpick inserted in the center of each cake comes out clean, 25–30 minutes. Let cakes cool 5 minutes, then invert each onto a plate, then invert again onto a cooling rack. Let cakes cool completely.

6. For the frosting: Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until combined. Add sugar and beat until frosting is light and fluffy, 5–7 minutes.

7. Put 1 cake layer on a cake plate, level off with a serrated knife, and spread one-quarter of the frosting on top. Set another layer on top, level, and repeat frosting. Set remaining layer on top, level, and frost top and sides with the remaining frosting. Press pecans into the sides of the cake, if desired. **Tip: after leveling cake, turn it upside down to reduce numbers of crumbs. I also did a crumb coat on the outside, let it set for ten minutes, then finished with remaining frosting.
~~~Chill for 2 hours to set frosting.~~~

Good morning friends!
Yep up bright and early at 5 this morning getting the fire going and brought the heater from the kitchen to the front room till it warms up.I have 3 of the grands in their pallet in the floor,i guess i have ruined them with pallets..They don't ever want to sleep in beds.lol.i was the same way when i was small though.I so enjoyed laying in front of the fireplace,go to sleep watching the shadows from the fire dancing around the room.The grands are getting so big.Billy is 7,Kolby age 4,and the girls Summer and Charlie Mae will be 2 in spring.My only great nephew will be 2 in may as well.All 3 of them are less than a month in age apart!How is your Christmas shopping and planning?Most of mine is finished,also thanks to several great giveaways that i won that helped me this year!I also have a small church play that we are working on with the kids.I am looking forward to it.HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS!
Such a great time to reflect on what is important to you and where your heart lies.GOD IS FIRST ,THEN MY FAMILY. I hope my life does reflect that ,i truly do.
Snow came very close again ,but alas no flakes to land on the tongue.The kids were so hoping it would come.Maybe a little later on,south Alabama is due a good snow storm.Have not had one since my kids were younger,i think it was in 92.
I am looking over a few contest this morning so i will share.Go enter and good luck!
Have a wonderful day and God Bless!

8 inches of rain and a few giveaways

good evening friends!
did you get rain?We got over 6 inches of rain this morning in less than 8 hours!Rivers ,creeks,fields,roads,they are full and overflowing!Mom says they are watching her pond very closely today,the pond below her ruptured and was shooting out of a 2 foot hole when i went by this morning.May not be a pond there now i am afraid.I had a cardiologist app. this morning in Enterprise AL,40 miles away,at 8 am .So we left in pouring rain,25 mph winds and was storming.I get there right on time,took twice as long to get there due to weather and rain on roadway just to find out the Dr. had called and told his receptionist to reschedule everyone due to weather!!!!HELLO!!!!!WEATHER???dare they mean what i had just drove 40 miles in to get there????OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO i was so aggravated and disappointed.I am having some problems and really needed to see him..But now it will be the 8Th before i can....
Kolby,age 4 in preschool,his play at school was also rescheduled..I was disappointed in that.He is so excited!When they do it i will post pics.Tomorrow night is Christmas parade in town,we will go meet up with the kids and attend.I enjoy the parade every year with them....
Ok...I have been blog hoppin and i shall share a few with you...get entered and good luck!!!!!
merry Christmas season everyone !!!!!!!Happy Birthday JESUS!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone and Billys update

First off thank you faith imagined to take time to comment to billy,he just went over to say thank you himself,he enjoyed reading your note to him and your prayers..He is out and thank God much better.He had viral phnumonia and stayed a day and night in hospital now home with his meds and here with me and kolby in the living room.We had a wonderful thanksgiving but we did miss Julie and Charlie mae whom is till in Arizona visiting with family there and my great nephew RJ whom was with his mom at their house this year.

Water is back....giveaways to check out!

good morning friends!
I am so happy to say that hubby finished my water lines last night and i now have how water back in the kitchen!We re ran all lines from hot water tank on..so....... the only incomplete part is to the sink in the bathroom.He has to work 12 hrs. a day through thanksgiving so that means the water will be in there come Friday.I want to put new faucets in the kitchen ,mine are sooooooooo old,but we will see.With the lines running the floor corners AND our floor being cement...well lets just say it was a slow go.We will pour new cement back next weekend.I still have a mess but at least the water to the bathtub and kitchen have returned,and oh yes..the toilet!
But we have done it all ourselves so all it cost was the pipe and pieces we needed and time.So DIY people!lol
Are you getting ready to cook for thanksgiving or do you eat out?I know a lot of people are doing that now.We will all be cooking and meeting up at mom's good lord Will's as my grandma use to say.I am looking forward to that.I do hate that Jeff has to work that day but thank God he has a job.Stacey and Darrell are still job hunting .I pray they find one soon.
Ok i am off to blog hop a while i will add links below for you to visit as well ..so it will be updated through out the day ..check back this evening and good luck on some giveaway entries!

have a blessed day!

Saturday morning is quiet-time for giveaways!

Good morning friends!For the first time in a long time i am not waking up on a saturday with one or more of the grandkids!I am lost people do you hear me....
Strange indeed.Billy has a meeting planned with a pastor in town for a talk.He has an upcoming paper for school(only in 2nd grade!) and he must write it on what he wants to be when he grows up and bilyy wants to be a preacher for God!
Jumping!yea!glory to god!!! I have known as well as others Billy is a blessed little boy of God's and prays for people ,animals ,just whatever!He loves Jesus and after being around him and talking just a few minutes you'd see what i mean.He is a gentle heart with a thought pattern WAY beyong his 7 years!
Anyway he has that meeting coming up with the family friend pastor and will be be visiting another church this sunday and i think Kolby wants to go too.Summer is with the other grandma and my little Miss Charlize Mae is still with momJulie in Arizona visiting with their family there,they will return early December..I miss you girls!!!!I miss them but the times they have there are so very special for them as well as here.I am so glad they are able to have this time together and we all get to mshare in their lives.Darrell is still out of work ,besides his musical jobs parttime.Stacey,daughters fiancee ,has as well been laid off from shut down job.Getting tough but here in the south we are kinda accustomed to things not being simple but a way out always comes if we continue to pray.

So on a saturday morning all along what am i doing?You see it..lol...watching Fox news ,blogging,twittering,and doing some giveaways! ;)
Readers if you have not been doing these ,there is still time to begin and maybe get some help with the holidays from them.The key is extra entries in most all of them and pray over them!Yes ask God to bless the works of your hands!We are typing in those entries are we not?If it saves us some money is that not a work?Ok then!

have a great day readers,thanks for coming by and good luck!
