Our world is getting scary and unpredictable!

When listening to the news on the TV, radio, and reading the paper, there’s not much good going on, in our world around us!  People are attacking one another, without much thought!  Guns are killing the innocent, thieves are breaking into peoples homes, cars, and business places, not even afraid to do so.  Banks are being held up, with the bank robbers on the run!  Identity theft is here, there, and everywhere.  Our children are being molested, abused, and left without food or attention.  Marriage, is being revised against ,the Bible we have had for all of our life time.  Jobs are somewhat stable for the mean time.  The weather has even had it’s changes, and makes us wonder what is going on in the world?  The daily papers tell us, “to be ware!”  You simply don’t know what can happen next!  Some people shake their heads in prayer.  How does a person turn a broken world around?  People are helping others in any way that they can.  It’s a tough world to live in!  All we can do is, take one day at a time and do the best we can in any circumstances that we are faced with, within our day.

Were headed into the season of Fall

This time of the year, we’re starting to grab a jacket, as it’s starting to cool down.  Most of us like to inhale and absorb the fresh cool air on a fall day.  The fall season sends us a message.  It stimulates and excites us.  It will ,in a short time, show us that we’re in the midst of seasonal change.  The squirrels will be gathering food for a long winter months ahead of them. The gardeners are busy canning or freezing, anything from vegetables to preserves.  The pumpkins are hidden under the green vines ready to show off their brilliant orange color.  Families will be going on road trips to view nature’s beautiful leaves on the trees.  It’s amazing how color brings a ray of beauty to our surroundings!  Now, we are all waiting for that Indian Summer day, to technically announce to us that we’re done with summer and now are in the transition of the fall season.  Fall is a wonderful time of the year and gives us so much beauty to be thankful for!

One single letter in a word can make a big difference!

Some people are really good at spelling and then there are those who seem to need a Dictionary or spell check every time they sit down and write!  One single letter misused can really make a difference.  Like dessert or is it desert?  Dessert is a food we enjoy to the fullest.  Vacuum, who would ever think there would be two, “u’s” in this word?  Then, number 2, is spelled like, two, to, too, depending on how you want to use the word.  I often find it hard to properly use the word know, is it know or is it no?  Then there is the word there, is it there or is it their?  Word usage can stump us at times!  I’ve written a lot in my day, and at times it gets me thinking which word is the proper one to use?  It’s always good to know, we can fall back on the dictionary and spell check!

It’s a fun weekend so, make sure to mark your calendar and come and have fun with the rest of us!!!!!!!  Agenda to follow August 5th!!!

He’s only three!

It’s amazing what a three year old can do now days!  I babysat three of my grandchildren last week and had a wonderful time!!  The five year old loved to ride on his bike and make good conversation.  The eleven month old, just sat and smiled. The three year old was full of fun!  He said to me, “Grandma, watch me, i know how to do something fun!”  I sat their and waited.  He got his plastic bat and ball.  He put the bat on his shoulder and the ball in his hand, up, he threw the ball and swung the bat and hit the ball.  The ball went flying high in the air and at a long distance!  I was surprised by what he could do!  He then, turned his body towards me to make sure I was watching him.  He then, proceeded to throw the ball in the air and hit the ball again.  This time the ball flew at a fast speed towards me ,and I raised my hands to protect my face and the ball smacked into my arm!  I chuckled and was amazed by the power he had.  I told him, that I thought it was time we did something else as, I didn’t think it would be to good if the babysitter got knocked out!!  I then, mentioned it to his father when he came home and he replied, “Oh, he hits the ball over the house!”  I was shocked by the power he had to hit the ball at such a distance.  What’s he going to do when he’s in tea ball?   Grand slams???

The “crud” is out there!!!

Anywhere you go, be careful of what you touch and whose coughing within close distance of yourself!  The “crud” is out there and it’s no fun!!  In the last week, I have heard of many people being very sick.  The severe headache, sore throat, sinus pressure, high temp, feeling very tired and weak.  Then, I heard some are throwing-up and running a high temp.  Next, some have very loose stools, weak, and running a high temp.  I had the sore throat, headache, and sinus pressure, it will put you in bed!  Then, just when you think your feeling a little bit better, it all returns to haunt you for the second round!!  Most importantly, it’s really bad to have any of the above happen to you during the summer months as, you can get very sick and will have to go to the Doctor!  So, be very careful not to get infested in all of the bad germs that surround you!!  Take care and have a nice day!!!
