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.
Everyone else got to spend some good time together and a feast at dinner.It was a blessing to us all.Robert took the kids out to the pond and played a bit then mom went out there and they fished a bit.The wind and cool air held off until after 3~yes!!!!It was nice and warm with the sun shining brightly.I will share a few pics and thanks for stoppin in..Have a safe and blesses christmas season ahead.May you all find a place in your heart and life for our savior Jesus..our friend Jesus..May God bless us all...

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 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 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 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!

Happy Veteran's Day~Thanks to all Veterans

I wanted to take a moment to say thank you to all the veterans ,active now and not,as well as the one's who, have gone on and to the one's whom never made it home.We in a huge part can thank you for our freedom's that we have enjoyed as well as our kids and grands.
My great grandfather and grandfather fought in WWI1,my uncle in ww2,2 uncles and cousins in the Korean and Vietnam war.I have a nephew in Iran now as well as several of my son's friends and a couple from my church family.
On this day we remember what freedom really means and who helps us to accomplish that.The men and women out there on the front lines,as well as the one's in the background....

Is there a particular place, city, country, room in your house?


3. Who is the most peace-loving person you know? What makes them so?
I would say that would be my friend and neighbor Lisa...At 44,single mom to a 4 year old,nurse and diagnosed with cancer,she is a rock!Loves god,humble sweet..all the above....

4. What do you do when your inner peace is threatened?
pray and go for a walk!

Do you have a strategy, a routine, religious faith, a calm yourself down?
have to be prayer...

6. How much money did you get from the Tooth Fairy per tooth?

7. Did you ever "force" a tooth out just to get the money? How did you do it?

Ida sets off the coast and giveaways!

Good morning friends and God bless ..
Here in the south it is the norm in the summer fall months for hurricanes coming in ,but novenber!I can see the beginning of the cloud lines already.They look like the have been tore up,so easy to spot in the sky.There is a light breeze blowing around but they will soon pick up to i think they are saying like 25-35 mile and hour winds here.I love it like that!!!When the storms are not damaging i love it.You can watch the clouds go counter clock wise ,the rain sheets, and the wind blowing through the pines.I love that sound.Or let's say i love the sound in 50 mph winds and less...when they get up higher it begins to sound like monsters growling VERY LOUDLY!The night Ivan came through a few years ago,that was the most horrifying sound i had ever heard.Between growling monsters,trains and semi trucks, i prayed all night.These things i love can be bad if you have never experianced a hurricane in the rural wooded areas..Lets just say..The sound is so loud you'll be up for the duration.My brother lives in town and said that night he stood out on the porch when he could and just listened to it,was not bad at all!I said come here next time if you want mom says wind through the pines is the most lonesome sound she has ever heard,makes her want to cry.Strange how one sound can be different to the hearer.There will be some flooding in some areas i know,so be careful all!Pasagoula miss. to indian pass florida has hurricane warnings that puts us in the middle with a persistant east wind.It is still 125 miles of coast with 2 inches falling an our..This one is not much worrying anyone ,i am grateful for this.We have been blessed here this year.

What are your holiday plans?We will have thanksgiving i am sure at mom's house.Christmas shopping has begun and some of us frugal folk i see are done with shopping!You go girls.....I am a little behind this year.I have some of the things for the kids but not through.I am going to do a shout out post next week and spotlight the bloggers i have blessed to win extra holiday gifts from this year!!!!They have been a blessing to me and i want to make sure i acknowledge them all!!So look for that...
have you been entering giveaways?If not you should!And for those of us who do you should think about a shout out post for the blogs as well..Spread the word about them.
I will be entering giveaways good lords will throughout the day and will be updating this blog when i get them done so keep checking or just check back later this eveing to see all of them.Want be a lot that can be done today outside with the rains so i will get some ME TIME ..I ask God ahead of time to bless the works of my hands on the computer..Yep!I pray over my giveaways i enter...God is soooooooo good..Hope he is your father as well.Jehovah is awesome..Jesus and holy spirit,Just blessed to know and love them!
Take care through out the day readers and down here in the south watch out for flooding and dead trees that may be falling in the wind gust!

Blessings to you all,

problems,moon shots n blogger giveaways

Evening all!Hope your week is going well.No mishaps today that i know of so that in its self is a blessing! lol.Well one i guess.My sister is having a problem with her son and x daughter in law..Well they were not married but that's what she calls her.They have a 16 month old baby boy.The other day when J went to pick him up(daddy) he smelled weed...When ask about it ,Shelby acknowledged and said her brother had smoked a joint in the edge of woods behind house! read right.She was honest anyway i guess.Any how,my sister called me asking how she should go about getting temp. custody on the baby till they could both straighten up and prioritize their lives.I told her what she would need to do and what it would cost.She called back a little while ago and said Shelby might just let her keep him as long as she could see him when she wanted...soooooooooooooo AS THE WORLD TURNS.... I don't know how that will work out but i am sure they will do the best for the baby.This is my sister's only grandchild from her only son.He is only 18 now and Shelly is also.
Anyway.........There is so much of this going on now where grandparents are having to be the parents,I had to do this for 3 years but thank God ,my daughter has put her kids first and been clean now 2 years..THANK GOD!Sometimes when you loose everything you do come around and fix it.It becomes first.I pray this works out the same....
OK....Christmas is not far off,,,have you entered some of these great giveaways going on???If not WHY?????? some of these prizes would make super presents!Keep it in mind and get entered.Here are some i am entering tonight!OH!!!!Last night i got the telescope and was looking at the moon,here is a pic i took with the camera.i thought it turned out kinda neat!

have a blessed night!

squirrel huntin and giveaways! YEAH~

Evening all,
have not posted in a few days,sorry,but it has been a crazy weekend and beginning of week.I went to Rita's last Thursday to help with her yard sale ,so Thursday we got ready for it and then out of the blue,it pours!!!! everything had to be wrapped up over and over again...on and off rain.Now remember this also is trick or treat nights ...sooooooooooooo... yeah..i was glad when over although i really enjoyed it.The grands had a blast!Billy was Optimise prime ,thanks anytime costumes!,Kolby was red ninja,and summer was a sugarplum fairy!Charlize Mae is in Arizona with her mom visiting Julies family and she was snow white!They were just all so cute....
Anyway on to yesterday..The commode messed up.had to pull it up and put down a new thingy under it,now we have decided we may have to break the flask out of our cement floor and redo that!yea i know..
The tank on our well lost it's prime,and while re priming hubby leaned against the pipes and broke that,water is shooting everywhere... ;0
so what did Betty do?????
All i could do...Went Squirrel my 4-10 and hit the woods with my 7 shells,yep all i this moment my 3 squirrel are frying with biscuits in the oven and gravy is in the making.That's what I'm talking about.Yes i am a country girl and proud of it and yes i only kill what i eat.Unless i see a poison snake or spider.Then it's all for their self!I will so be enjoying my feast soon.First one of the season,Jeff is at band practise so..I can enjoy me meal quietly and then get on to some giveaways!Are they not fun and when you win..woopee!I pray over my entries..God is soooooooo good ..Yes he is!I do not know what i would do without him.He is my rock...I MEAN THAT! I do love my father in Heaven and he loves me and you.I do hope you know him too.
ok..let me go eat and i shall return!
