Getting To Know You.......

It's Sunday, and time for some Getting To Know You fun. Hop on over to MannLand5 to play along.

1. Do you iron your sheets?   Ummm, no.  Isn't that why we have blankets and cover up wrinkly sheets??

2. Your dream car is....?  One of these beauties:  A jaguar XF

3. Do you have an innie or an outie belly button? Innie

4. What meal do you look forward to the most..breakfast, lunch, or dinner?  I have to choose one? 

5. Favorite mascara?   I don't have a favorite.  In fact, please leave me recommendations of some waterproof, non-clumping mascara.  Right now, I'm using Volume Express by Maybelline.

6. What would you say your decorating style is..traditional, modern, eclectic, country, french country, shabby chic, etc..?   Does messy count?  We're not a neat family....our house looks very, ummm, lived in. LOL that was serious, but even more serious is that we bought a little cottage and we are going to decorate it probably with a Key West-type style.

7. Have you ever been skinny dipping?  Yes.

8. I hate the smell of...?  Can I list more than one??  Vomit, poop, people who wear too much perfume or aftershave, cigarette smoke and fish. 

Thanks for stopping by and Getting To!

My World Is Getting Smaller

We have a king size bed. Lately, it hasn't felt too comfortable sleeping on it so we decided to invest in a foam mattress topper. We found one at for $109 so we ordered it and it arrived on Tuesday.

I haven't slept this well in a long time. I may never leave my bed again!  I think I'm going to have to order a laptop so I can be online right from the incredible comfort of my bed!

Oh, and the picture is not of my bedroom.  I have two yellow labs and a five year old, not to mention a husband.  But one day, maybe, just maybe......

Lookee What I Saw Last Night

There is a 2x4 vertical in the ground just outside our back door. A few weeks ago, I was letting my dogs out at night and happened to glance at the post and saw this cute little owl. Before I could get my camera, it flew away. A few days later, I saw it again, but could not get a picture of it.

Last night, when I let my dogs out, there it was. This time, it didn't fly away. I tried a few pictures with the backyard light on, but the glare was too much. Had my husband turn the light off and snapped this picture. He is a tiny thing. But he sat there patiently till I got a good picture of him.  Sweet little owl. :o)

Tree Trimming Is A Noisy Business!

We are having much needed tree trimming done this morning. They've been here since 8am. It is loud, but they do such a great job. This guy has been taking care of the trees at this house for 20+ years...long before we owned it. We finally have some light in our little backyard and we will now have some sunshine on our pool once it warms up enough to USE our pool. Well worth the few hours of noise.

Have a great Saturday everyone!

I was trying to do the Read Your Bible in 90 Days plan, but I just got bored overwhelmed with the beginning books in the Old Testament. It starts from Genesis and goes forward through the rest of the bible. I soon realized remembered I have the attention span of a gnat. FAIL.

Then, I switched to a 61 Day reading plan from Bible Gateway, which takes you through the "highlights" of the Old and New Testament. That was more interesting, more readable/comprehendable to me, but after a few days....FAIL.

I may have failed to keep to my reading plan, but I DO know that God does not want me to feel like a failure. Romans 8:1 tells us "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

I know it is important to read God's word every day, and to memorize scripture. Psalm 119:11 says "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." I pray that God will help me in my bible reading. I pray He will open my heart and mind to what I am reading that I may understand his Word and store it in my heart to draw upon when I am tempted or in trouble. I pray that when I do miss a day (or two) that I do not feel like I have failed, but instead remember that tomorrow is a new day and a new chance to feed my spirit with the Word of God!

Freezing My Fanny In Frigid Florida!

Lest you think I'm a wimpy southerner, it is only expected to reach 43 degrees today and go down to 30 degrees tomorrow night with a high of only 40 on Sunday. That is cold for us heat-loving Floridians!

Load Time

Could you take a minute and let me know how fast (or slow) my site loads for you? I have a poll posted in the left column. I realize some folks still have dial-up and so I want to make this blog load as fast as possible for everyone who visits.
