My day adventures today took my son and I to

old st. charles... Wish you could see what a beautiful day it was today... a little breezy, but just beautiful... My son and I took a long walk around old St. Charles and also by the old train tracks... I did not get to go to any stores because first of all my son is very curious and likes to touch everything plus it was just tooo nice out to be indoors... We got a bit of ice cream and just enjoyed sitting on one of the benches out there and enjoyed the day and scenery and the cute little birdies that came by us without being scared... We gave them little pieces of our ice cream cones and they loved it....

I was very happy to share this mommy and son time since YES my date to start work is APRIL 10th....... I just found out earlier this afternoon.... I am very happy about it, but also a little sad because it's a week away and actually okay it's on my birthday.... When she told me I was thinking in my mind not on my birthday pls.... OH WELL!!!!!!!! That's life and I am thankful that I at least have a job now.......
Thanks for reading and I hope you had a great day today...............

truly beautiful

just wanted to share with you that TODAY is I swear the most beautiful day I have seen in a while... THE SUN IS BRIGHT, THE GRASS is green and the SKY is the bluest blue...... No cleaning for me today... I am running out to go and enjoy this day I am not going to waste this day, sweeping and washing and vaccuming.........

Hope you enjoy it as well.........HAPPY SPRING

buttons, buttons, buttons

I am loving these buttons I bought a
couple of months ago... They come in this little plastic bag, but for the life of me I can't remember who makes them. The colors are great though.

woke up today

with a better attitude... Even though we might have rain again today I am feeling great..... I don't mind the rain you know... because it brings life and who doesn't enjoy a good thunderstorm once in a while... the other day it was just me feeling blah, but today I am trying to be my usual normal kooky self... I actually even feel like making something... with all the beautiful inspiring work on all my favorite blogs (on the side bar over there you see it) how can I not want to create today........ I feel a tag or a card wanting to be made..

HAVE A GOOD ONE!!!!!!!! love, just me

The sun did come out

thanks ladies for all your nice comments on my gloomy day yesterday.... The beautiful sun did come out today and cheered me up a bit...
I don't know, but I have been in such a rut... I had such a good weekend, but for some reason instead of feeling like I felt on Saturday today I am feeling like I am on cloud ZERO...... I am thankful because nothing bad is going on.... I guess I am feeling like I am in LIMBO waiting around for something to happen.... I did interview today for another insurance company, but it seemed like they were asking me questions that really did not pertain to what I did at my previous job... I don't think they did their homework on my resume and maybe I was not as interested as I thought I was. Plus, their hours would not work around my MOMMY schedule at home.
I don't know. I believe in the phrase it's not meant to be so maybe right now I am where I am supposed to be, but in a way I am kind of stuck in the middle somehow..... floating in the unknown... don't like the feeling.

Thanks Mary Ann

I received this beautiful gift from
my long time friend Mary Ann. Thanks so much for such a great gift.

My favorite color is green. No, not because

Prayer request PLS

yesterday my friend lori and I decided to get together at the Chocolate Cafe and talk for a while. Out of this friendly visit Lori told me about this man named MIKE (that she doesn't even know she just recently met his sister at the church she attends) has just found out his body is full of cancer and they are just giving him 6 to 8 weeks to live. Can you imagine someone telling you that you only have 6 to 8 weeks to live....... I CAN'T. I don't know his last name all I know is that he just told his children this past week that he has cancer...... Not that he might not be around much longer........

I AM ASKING FOR PRAYER for this man. This is all I can ask...... IF YOU pray pls include him in your daily prayers......... HIS name is Mike........ PLS PLS PLS remember him in your prayers.......... I thank you and GOD BLESS.................
