Fractured Fugal Friends

Something I haven't thought of in a long time. That is the Once a Month Cooking gig. I remember when I was a working mom and did this for about a year or maybe it was two. It sure came in handy when Francis started baseball season. I found this link through an ad on the GottaPixel site so I though I would share it.

Why Oh Why?!

Why did I decide to try the Blogger Beta? What a mess this has been. Where I could do almost anything by tweaking the html before now it won't work! The new improved make it a no brainer version is a nightmare! My Photobucket can't post from there now! On the test site I tried to use the new improved template. NOT! I cant' do diddley squat with the test site. Beware of the new templates that Blogger is trying to say is better. They are what you see is what you get don't try to change the header or the background or we will tie you up by your thumbs! I am soooo glad I do the test blog thing or else I would be like really crying right now! So be warned the new Blogger Beta is a bust! Don't Do IT!Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Where Was I?

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The question everyone is asking today. Where was I? 5 years ago today? I remember turning on the tv in the hotel room in Hawaii after a phone call from my mom. We were visiting for a week and just 1 day before the end of our stay. We sat there looking on in horror as the second plane appeared and flew into the second tower. It had to be some show it couldn't be real is what we were thinking, but every chanel had the same thing. There were people in the lobby freaking out because they couldn't leave the island and there was now where for them to stay. We spent the day doing our planned activities but when ever we go back and visit Sealife Park we will always remember 9-11-01. Good thing I have family there we spent the next 5 days sleeping on my mothers floor before they allowed anyone to fly. A lot of people, innocent people died that day just because we have the freedoms that we have. It is truely another day that will live in infamy. So never forget the innocent, the Firemen, and Police that gave their lives that day. A day that should have been like any other.
Ok I have to add if ever faced with the situation that those on that last flight did. I pray that I may act so bravely. Click on the title and remember the men, women, children, public servants, and our military today. God Bless AMERICA!

How's my New Blog Topper?

My pal Melany put one together for fun and so I thought I would change the look of my blog. Here's her freebie template.
Also Christy is now selling a set at the Butternug Squash Design Store. For only $3.75! How's that for a deal! I'll be changing my topper again later this week with one of Christy's templates. So come back and check it out next weekend.

What a great Labor Day!

Monday we were invited to a brunch/ bbq. One of the families and the new church we are going to invited us over. Funny the same family that called Qwest about their phone bill and invited us to visit their church when we got here. I tell you God works in mysterious ways. Anyway, we got up kind of late around 9:30am. Then as we got our slow day started, the phone rang. It was Wayne saying hey breakfast is just about ready you had better come on over now. So we threw ourselves together and headed over. You know google maps have roads that have not been put in yet. Well we figured it out anyhow

When we got there, several other church members were already starting breakfast. I finally got to meet Tracy! She was the one that Phil talked to and invited us to this wonderful church to begin with. It was fun getting to know everyone, the pastor and his wife were there too.

It’s amazing how comfortable we feel with these people. It is also amazing how many of them are homeschoolers. That was my connection to this church. Funny how I mentioned it to the woman from the Pocatello Christian Homeschool Association and it turned out to be her church too!

After a tour of the house, we followed everyone else and went home for a nap. (Didn’t happen) Turns out that the Turners had an extra microwave and bold, as my husband is he actually asked for it. (Good thing I wasn’t there when it happened.) So again, God provided a much needed item. Bryce had a one-track mind after that. POPCORN! It’s the only thing he can make on his own. LOL! Thank You Tracy and Wayne! Bryce Loves The Microwave!

We went back around 5:30pm for the Bar-b-q part of the day. I was stuffed! I mean it was hamburgers, sausages, potato salad, pasta salad, chips, and so on but it was soooo good. The kids had fun playing and we adults socialized some more. We were there until dark talking and getting to know each other. Phil had to work early the next day so we had to leave. We gathered up the boys said our good byes and went home to a hot shower and bed. After I went and got Bryce some microwave popcorn. Can you believe the one track mind that boy has!

I know that this is where God wants us. We feel so oh I don’t know familiar with the people here in this church is the only way to describe it. Like God has told us in our hearts about all these wonderful people already.

That is how our Labor Day was in a condensed version. I do still miss my old neighborhood and friends but I now know that God has so much in store for us here too. I can’t wait to see what it is.

What a Blast!

Well today was kind of a lazy day. I spent most of it fighting with the printer software so I could hook my laptop directly to the printer since we had to use it near a phone jack for a fax. Sooner or later Phil will figure out the server thing.
Then we ran out to Wal Mart for groceries. not to bad most of what we needed for the next 2 weeks. We still need to go out to Freddy's for the rest but not bad. Then we ran to Home Depot for a garden hose left the old one behind. Thought it went in the trailer but I guess it didn't.
Then came the fun part of the night. The Butternug Squash Design Team had a chat in the DST chat room. There sure were a lot of people there, and Christy gave away some great prizes. Of course we got on the subject of her blog and poor Henry. Or should I say poor Christy and her car that smells like old cheese and a goat died in it. LOL! If you haven't visited her blog you really need too. Annny way we got on some weird combinations of subjects and it all started sounding just tooo bizaare (spelling?) It was like spam, poop, squid, chocolate, sushi, goats, and cheese and who knows what else. LOL! I sure hope some of the gals who were there show up at the forum so we can get to know them better. Oh and better yet some of the husbands started to read over shoulders. I guess we were just getting too wild.
Now I'm just sooo pooped out.(the tired type of pooped) I think I'm going to take a shower and read alittle then sleep. Got church tomorrow and more going on at the BSD Forum. See you there.
