IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE

Hello and how are you doing today?  We had some rain this morning but now the sun is out and a beautiful day here in sunny Florida.  Today has been a day that I have thought back to my childhood days.  I think about the children today and goodness are they ever lazy.  I just sit back and say to myself, you should have had my Mom, now that was a strick woman.  I use to think how terrible she was but then when I became a Mother myself I think, I deserved every thing I got as for as punishments go.  I wish I had her so I could tell her how much I appreciate all those licks I got. 
Now this is a very old picture.  I was leaving the 8th grade and moving on to high school.  I though I was the queen that day.  One thing I can say, thank goodness for my Mom and her being so stricked on education as later on all I wanted to do was quit school.  No way she said, you will get your education as that is something I can give you that no one can ever take away.  So here I am alot of years later and I said that to my children as well.  Back then we learned something in school, today well lets just say  they would rather party instead of learn.  Thank you Lord for the good ole days.

I hope your day is good and maybe you also can think back to some of your good old days.

IT'S A LOVELY DAY IN SUNNY FLORIDA

Hello to ya, I have been sorta  out of pocket  so figured I would post a few  thibngs.  We went to Indiana for a few days and now home, you know they say there is no place like home and so true.  I just like my quiet place.
My friend says it is called ole age so whatever.

I just finished another Doily

I hope to do about 3 more of these as I have people wanting one.  Have you ever thought of what you would do if you did not learn to Crochet?  I sure do.  I crochet in the car, doctor office, and where ever I am I always have some thread and  hook handy.

I hope you have a wonderful day.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Have a wonderful day.

RAINING IN FLORIDA

Have you ever heard that it is raining cats and dogs?  Now where in the world did someone come up with that saying, I looked out but I don't see any cats or dogs.  Funny
Today I will be lazy and do nothing but lay around.  I just love those type of days.
I have been working on some projects for a lady, here is one

Today I will do a few White ones as well as Red.  Christmas is right around the corner they say so my hands will be busy as a Bee.
I wish you a wonderful day.

WHAT I WOULD GIVE

Hello, as a Mother, do you ever think of back when your kiddos were still at home and all was sweet in everyway?  At times I get sort of  homesick for my children.  They are all here, their and everywhere.  My Oldest is in Georgia, next, my other son , he is in Tennessee and my daughter is here in Florida.  As a mommie it is so hard on me when they have troubles and I can not fix it for them.  I often think, where did I go wrong that they can't have the perfect life.  If I could, I would take all their pain and heartaches for them.  Here are my beautiful Children, of course this was several years ago.  I love them so much.
Goodness, I think I need a more recent picture3.  Lol

WOW, GARDEN TIME

Morning to ya,  I went out and picked some of the vegs and decided to put some stuffed peppers in the freezer as well as cut up some for sauces use.

the hot peppers we stuffed as well with pulled pork.  Yummie of course
The Lemon tree is also  loaded so will have lots of lemonade this year.
The orange tree is so full also it is breaking limbs, so hubby will work on that today to prop them up.  I need to take a pic ofd that so you can see all the oranges we will have.
Have a great day my friends,

Barbara
