This is Me

My photo
I'm a displaced South/Central Texan living in Louisville Kentucky
I am a princess because I am a child of the Risen King! My background is Baptist, but believe I have a relationship not a religion. I married my childhood sweetheart and together we have raised two wonderful children and got them married off. I love everything about being a wife and mother. Now guess what? I am going to be a GRANDMA!! We are so excited for this next step in our lives.

Memorial Day... Plus

On Mon. Memorial Day, because of the rain we decided not to spend $20.00 each for Abbey Road and wait for next year. Turns out the rain did hold off. Other than a sprinkle and we may have been ok. Instead Trent and I went to The Falls of the Ohio. It was really nice we walked a little bit of the trails. And went out on the rocks by the water looking for fossils but had no idea what we were looking at. We had more fun sitting up under the trees leaning on the rocks watching and listening to others who thought they were looking at a creature 3 million years old who knows maybe they were. But when a 5 yr. old keeps yelling here’s one!, here’s one! I wonder. ..

We did see a few fossils but we don’t know what we were looking at. One man was real nice to point some things to us like the coral that was the easy to find.

I was trying to be stealthy and sneak photos of these guys. I hope they weren't actually planning on eating any of the fish. I wouldn't want to eat anything that came out of the Ohio River

The trees were quite amazing. Those who know me well know I love trees and am weird that way. I just love a beautiful tree. Well these poor old trees were very determined to grow! Just look at those roots!!

Tues. night we had Kevin and Lauren over for dinner. MissaAnn has church group on Tues. so missed having her. Usually I make from scratch especially desserts but I bought Toll House Brownies with Peanut Butter in the middle. GO BUY SOME RIGHT NOW!! You can read the rest while you eat the brownies. I’ll wait......................……..tola loo………….. Arn’t they AMAZING?!?!?!!!!!

Today is my day to go to the Marriot and swim. Trent usually goes with me and reads. It’s a relaxing place too. It feels and looks very much like being on a cruise ship. That’s it for now…………

A little Tour

I still find it odd that I wake up in Louisville Kentucky. And that I can then ride in the car for 13 miles about 20 minutes, and be in Indiana and spend the day reading a book at the Falls of the Ohio. I see things like funny brushes bolted to the sidewalk outside of doors made for brushing off snow and ice before you walk in. Drive through Chili spots like burger joints. Oh, and they put cinnamon in their chili and put it over spaghetti People here plant to grow big lush gardens of…. Are you ready for it….. Butter Cups! LOL we mow those down in Texas! Not that we don’t love them and have a very fond place in our hearts for them from childhood. But we have always known them to be “weeds”. Well, except for the year Melissa talked Kevin into not mowing a big circle in the back yard so she could keep a flower garden. Oh yeah, it was pretty yellow, white, and pink, all dandelions and butter cups and such. Well we let her keep it for a while.

In the map above, MissaAnn, Trent and I live in Douglass Hills the dot above the “s” in Hills. Kevin and Lauren are 3 miles to the left (west) along the gold line and are where the “t’s” are in Matthews. We are 11.4 miles from the Airport by its code letter “sdf”. And 12 miles from Churchill Downs located below the y in Shively. Now my little reading corner is only 13 miles and across the river right where the top of the L point to. Well there’s your little tour with an over view. It’s not a big place as you can see nothing is far or takes long to get there. And the road way system is easy.

Happy Renters

We have just had a new contract on a house and will have our tenant move in soon. She believe she will be much happier here because it is sure to be much more quite than her last home. Why? Because she was next door to a “Motor Cycle Club”. Now this may be a fine establishment with great guys and gals. Don’t go growling Mr. bikers I just mean wow, that would be some kind of noise to have so many bikes coming and going. And we are perfectly happy to have the rent too. Now for the business side. This will be full pay which means sec8 will pay it all we will not have to collect any rent. Yippie ki yi aye.

chit chatting

Well, I must say. I spent some time with the new world of twitters. I have decided they have work to do to catch up with Facebook and other sites where people have been keeping up with each other for a while now. I can’t see the advantage to Twitter over Facebook as far as keeping up with family and friends. Twitter is a fun way to get a lot of info from a lot of sources at one time, that’s facebook. I have friends and family from all over the world sharing quick notes to pictures albums and other fun pieces of flair on Facebook. Now for the Blogger I Thought this would be a way for people to just go to a site and read what is going on with out having to join anything and I could just write whats going on post pictures and get repsonses back. simple.

May 18

Louisville, KY * Today Fair 69° /Tomorrow 46° 79° / Wednesday 54° 85° /

Today we woke to find we had a frost last night. Yep, a frost! It's turned out to be a very pretty day of about 70. I have been outside weeding out the bed where I have put Blubonnet seeds. I know have the leaves but no blue flowers yet. I will post those for sure as soon as they bloom, if I get any this first year out of them.

My diet is really tuff. Oatmeal. That's it, oatmeal. I have at least one Boost every day and at least one V8. This is because that's been about the only thing I seem to do well with and I want to be sure I get enough protein and veggies. I ate a turkey burger with no topping except some home made guacamole and one scoop of peach cobbler when we had Kevin's Birthday. It was a simple and fresh Guacamole (which by the way I am suppose to be able to eat) and a simple ground turkey burger. I missed church Sunday and I am still paying for it today.

I have done well with my daily walks, I am doing 2.0 miles a day. Working on the upper stength still and that is so much harder for me. I can't seem to get beyond 3 pounds. I feel better when I get this done and I stay away from food. Just need to be sure I don't get to a point of weakness from no food. so I need to still work on what I can have. That has not been easy as so far it seems like it has been nothing. I bought soy milk today and eggs I am allowed egg whites so I will try scrambled egg whites to add to my list of Boost, V8, Oatmeal. I'm grooving now.
