Church Trail RIde Weekend

April 24, 2017

Hey ya'll, it's me!

It's 5:39 in the am, and I am halfway through my Monday routine. I have cleaned my bedroom and bath, dusted and vacuumed the living room, and had my first load of laundry on the line by 4:39, much to the annoyance of the two sparrows nesting under my porch roof! Now I'm taking a break and trying to write a good post for ya'll. Here goes...

This last weekend, our cowboy church had a trail ride at a local ranch not too far from our home. It was the annual spring ride--nothing big just church family getting together to enjoy God's creation, fellowship, and eat good food. We didn't have time for our family to get our horses and trailer ready, so we left the girls and boys behind, and just went for a relaxing time. I'm glad we did, because the weather was wet and cold for most of it. Good grief, it's almost MAY, and we're still having wonky weather!

The first night, we made it out to the ranch, and helped other fol…

Dishwashing Helpers For Under $10.00

April 18, 2017

Hey ya'll, it's me!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. Mine was grand, with worship, music, fellowship with my church family, and food afterward at the 'grub Sunday' meal. We really do have the best cooks in the county. At home later, we rested, then I made dirty rice and jambalaya for supper. Don't be too impressed, it was Tony Chachere's Box dinners! But it was good.

I really enjoyed the holiday weekend, because the Redneck was off on Good Friday. We got a lot of errands done, and I picked up a couple of things to help me in my dishwashing chores. I never just buy gadgets, I spend time deciding if it will be useful enough to justify the expense and upkeep. The two I'm about to show have met my criteria.

I enjoy watching YouTube cleaning videos, especially the speed cleaning ones, and I had been seeing this little gadget on many of them.

It's a 'palm scrubber' for dishes. You put dish soap in the little compartment,…

Easter Greetings

April 15, 2017

Hey ya'll, it's me!
I just want to take the time to wish everyone a blessed Easter Sunday. While Christmas is great, because that's when the Saviour came to earth, Easter is the happening day, because that's when He sacrificed His own life, took the sins of the whole world, past, present and future, into Himself. The time He rose from the grave, conquering death and hell. He ascended to heaven, sitting down at the right hand of the Father, He sent the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide us through life, and someday He is coming back to take all who believe in Him and His sacrifice on the cross home to be with Him forever. Now THAT'S COOL.

It just wouldn't be a proper Easter greeting in Texas without a photo of bluebonnets!

Weekend Haul For 1st Weekend In April 2017

April 2, 2017

Hey ya'll, it's me!

Hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine has been fantastic, winding down now. Thought I'd get my weekly post done before I slip off to bed.

Friday was good, lots of sunshine, nice breeze. Obie and I walked into town, stopping at the library to see if there might be any good movies for our Saturday night movie. I scored DEADPOOL! I love Ryan Reynolds anyway, and as the wise cracking super anti hero--he's even better.

After the library, we walked to a garage sale a couple of miles away. There wasn't a lot of stuff that we could use, but I saw these plastic containers, and the lady only wanted 50 cents--for all three!

The two oval containers still had the price sticker from Dollar General--$2 each. I will use them to hold silverware and napkins when we have meals on the patio this summer. The blue rectangular basket I can use to hold packets of seasonings in the pantry.
Saturday was pretty slow, compared to our usual weekends. We did …
