Fun Week

This has been a fun week. I have been busy every day. It sure makes the time fly by. My calendar was marked full of activities. Spending one whole day with a daughter and going out of town and shopping several stores was really neat. We ate out and had a great visit. Then my other daughter had me join them for supper yesterday and got to have a couple of the great grandkids join us too. That was an added happy surprise. They are so cute. Going to be 2 soon and 4 years old. Both their birthdays are this month.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Since we had a death in the immediate family, we used all our cell phones to the maximum and the bills were horrendous.  We had to make so many calls both nationally and internationally and wow! did the bills pile up.  We were texting back and forth between family members until the costs were prohibitive and we knew we had to do something and do it quickly or go broke just because of the phone bills.  Then we discovered Net 10 through a good friends.  Their unlimited plan can't be beat.  You get unlimited texting, nationwide calling and lots more,  You have no contracts or credit checks either and we didn't need to worry about being surprised about our bill because it was $50 a month. You can even switch plans if you want to.  We quickly found out  What Rob has to say  about getting a really great phone at very little cost and no two year contract.  

 With thousands of stores to purchase a great phone for a whole lot less money, we were even able to get a smart phone and best of all phones for the kids.    They were texting like crazy and texting was unlimited with Net 10.  We listened to what a  Real NET10 customer had to say about it and we were immediately sold.  I love having a clear sound on my phone, no calls dropped and I can take pictures with my camera and send them out so clearly.  Please check into Facebook and Twitter and see if I am correct in recommending Net 10.   Young people love it as much as older folks.

If you have a good husband, treat him right. Give him all the love you can while you can. Once they are dead, they are gone forever. My husband left for Heaven on September 8 and it has been a month and a half already. Time sure flies. This picture was taken on August 6 and we had no idea he had such short time to live.
Life is very uncertain so enjoy every moment while you can and be ready to go to Heaven when you die by repenting of your sins and accepting Jesus into your heart.

Cold Weather

The days are changing fast. We have had lots of high winds that really took all the leaves off the trees very quickly. The nights are down to freezing and today the furnace had to run to keep it at least 69 in the house. The sun is out but it isn't warm. The flowers have pretty much frozen off and we know it won't be long and the snow will be falling. I didn't used to mind it because it seemed you could always dress plenty warm but in summer you never dress cool enough. But I guess as I age, I hate to see winter come. My husband always hated winter and this year he won't have to put up with it. I know it is much better in Heaven.

Say yes to the Dress

Guest post written by my buddy Bernardo Graham

I have a friend at work whose brother is getting married next month. She is in the wedding as a bridesmaid and she told me yesterday that she is going to be on the show “Say yes to the dress bridesmaids”. It is supposed to air in the spring, so I will have to check my directv channel guide to make sure I don’t miss it. She actually did not want to be on the show, but she was the only bridesmaid who felt that way, and they could not be on the show unless all of the bridesmaids participated. So she decided that she would agree to going on the show. After all, she is about to gain a sister-in-law and does not want to start off on bad terms. I will be interested to see how the show portrays each bridesmaid. I have seen the show before, and it usually makes it seem like some kind of argument or drama takes place with each wedding party. My friend said that the producers were asking her questions like, “You don’t like the dress, do you?” and saying things like, “The bride told us you are unhappy with her for making you be in the wedding.” Neither of those were true, so she is anxious to see how the show portrays her.

Off to Arizona

Our former neighbors left for Arizona this morning. She called me over to take home a lot of groceries they couldn't take along. I filled up 5 bags full and then went to my daughters and left her quite a lot of it. Came home and unpacked the rest and shared some asparagus with my neighbor who has always been so good to share with me in the Spring, when they pick it fresh. This was frozen and they will really enjoy it. Took another neighbor a couple of things too that I couldn't use and they were happy too. It was a busy morning.

Taste the Fun of T.G.I. FRIDAY'S "Entrees for One"

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of T.G.I. FRiDAY'S for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Gals, hurry out to your local grocery store and pick up a couple of  T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One”  like I did.  I surprised my husband with Sesame Orange Chicken for supper the other night and he could not believe how good it was.  He thought it was much better than the last meal we had out at the local Chinese Restaurant.  However, before you do that, take a minute and go to Facebook and vote between Oct 7 and Oct 20 to see who should win their freezer fun contest.  Just check into  Fun Freezer contest  and vote for your favorite.  I have also purchased Entrées For One and we both thought it was delicious.  I want to try all the flavors as they are good portions, great taste and make a delightfully easy supper.  My husband is really eager to taste the Entrées For One and the Entrées For One because they he feels they sound delicious and could be some of his most favorites of all.  He's so happy to come home to a healthy, hearty meal that can be fixed in minutes when we both work.  It so often finds us too tired to cook and the flavors of these new entrees are just amazing.   Thus far our favorite has been

Baby Hats

It is so much fun attending baby showers. There is always such a wonderful variety of baby clothes and among them cute baby hats. I know people with a great deal of talent choose to make their own baby hats for baby showers, but I love to shop and so I also love to shop for knitted baby hats in the wintertime because I know they will keep the babies head nice and warm. I love to buy little outfits that match and if you know it is a girl or boy that is expected, then you can carefully choose just the cutest baby hat to go with their outfit. I think most women enjoy a baby shower more than many other kinds of showers and parties. Having had 5 children of my own, it is always fun to see how the styles have changed and the delightful colors that are available now. It is so much fun shopping for baby hats.

My Dear Husband

My dear husband left me a little over 3 weeks ago for his home in Heaven. He hated winter and he won't have to go through another one. For that I am thankful. His birthday was Friday and he spent it with Jesus. I can't imagine what a wonderful birthday he had. I don't suppose he even knew it was his earthly birthday but there is so much about Heaven that we don't know so maybe he did.

I know he was greeted by 2 of his children and many brothers and sisters and parents and the grandparents he never got to meet. They were already gone when he was born so he never had the joy of having grandparents. We have 14 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren that had the privilege of being held by their grandpa before he went to Heaven. We are so thankful for our wonderful family.
