{Let June Begin}

  It's Sunday afternoon and my tribe has left after a wonderful and breezy afternoon. The youngest two grands made friends with a baby bird today and was so sad when they had to let it go.  We attended a dance recital for these two littles. They both done so good. It was so bright outside and we were all squinting in pictures. The girls had a fan club for sure. Marty and I are blessed that our family always supports one another. Just BLESSED y'all. Just blessed! Marty enjoys coffee cakes and breads with his morning coffee on his way to work so I baked a yummy cranberry & orange coffee cake with drizzled icing. It smelled amazing baking. I think I might have a slice in the morning. LOL! The month of May was National Physical Fitness & Sports month so we ladies finished up strong. We added extra workouts to our yoga classes in different areas and well, let me just say, "I found a few muscles that I didn't know I had". LOL! My focus board for June is so fitti

{Thankful and Blessed}

  Merry After Christmas Everyone! I hope that you all had a most wonderful Christmas. It is truly my favorite holiday season. I love the lights, the music, the gift of giving and mostly the acts of "goodwill" towards others that I have witnessed this Christmas season. The Lord has surely blessed my family and we have enjoyed our Christmas season together. I have tried so hard this holiday season to not take these sweet moments in life for granite.  I have done LOTS of baking this Christmas! Oh my! I've often said that baking and cooking was good therapy for me and I do enjoy it so much. Well, I am not showing all the pictures of baked goods this season but let me just say, my freezer has baked goods for many Sunday dinners to come! LOL!  I so enjoyed giving baked goodies to others this season as gifts. I think "baked goodies" speak love to me and mainly because it's time consuming and you know, it would be much easier to run out and buy a small gift. But,

{Christmas Cookies, Christmas Pictures and Grand Fun}

  I hope this little post finds you all well and experiencing joy this Christmas Season. I have been staying fairly busy but also enjoying some time off from work. As most know I work PT outside the home but have taken some time off and trying to savor the moments of the Christmas season.  I wanted to share a few snaps we took outside with a very simple little set up. But they turned out so cute. I LOVE the expression on the youngest grandgirl's face.  God surely knew what He was doing when He gave us grands!  Mercy, I sure do love these babies and so thankful God gave them to me.  We had a little fun baking too. Pretend baking and REAL baking!  YES LAWD...I had a mess to clean up but it was worth it to hear the laughter, singing and of course, smacking those sweet lips as they tasted their finished cookies.  And, we had enough cookies that they each carried home some. I snapped this picture upon retiring one of the nights over the weekend that the girls stayed with me and couldn

"A Little Christmas Magic" Is In The Air

  I have surely been enjoying my little Christmas magic at my house. I just love my fireplace mantle and hearth this year.  There is just something about a red and black scarf that can show case anything to me! It show cased me last Christmas and believe me, that's a job! LOL!  And who doesn't love trees....and well, anything in nature and outdoors suits me just fine.  Add a few red birds and I begin to feel my heart do a little pitter-patter. I just love Christmas and I love everything about it. Especially the CHRIST in Christmas.  My little sign " HOPE and BELEIVE "...says it all for me. The Bible says that a people without HOPE will perish and let's face it friends, where would we be without HOPE .  I honestly shutter to think where I would be. BELIEVE, Oh yes....I truly believe in the Name above all Names, Jesus Christ and I believe this scripture without any reservations. This scripture is my life verse!
