Beautiful day…. Good morning everyone. It’s now Friday, I’ve somehow lost a day this week. My hubby was home Monday, like normal, and my children had an ice day-no school, and Tuesday, was some crazy weather here in West Michigan, on top of my vehicle having very little brakes, which, thanks to some awesome family from church, they transported my children back and forth to school most of this week. On top of needing and thankfully, getting my brakes fixed, at least on the front of my van, I was also able to gain a creature control company to come take a look and see exactly what has been scratching in our walls at night.

The creature control company came out, looked in our attic, found a ginormous nest, bird’s nest in my attic, that’s probably been there for a few years he thinks. He also planted a raccoon trap in my roof, till current, nothing caught, yet.

When you have folks like creature control come to your home, try and remember to ask exactly how they plan to bracket a raccoon trap to your roof and then consult your spouse, if they are available, otherwise, you may get blamed, or sound like your getting blamed for something, you had absolutely no clue to ask. I only say this, because, I just experienced this, oh and, did I mention, we are in need of a new roof anyhow? It’s rough being a stay at home mom.

In different news, I’ll be going back to my functional medicine specialist the end of the month, for a recheck on some tests and a chiropractic adjustment, which I’m in bad need of. Shoveling snow/ice here last weekend, with an already bad back, so not worth doing. It may have needed to be done, but definitely NOT by me. While I’ve sat and kinda been nursing my back, I’ve started and finished one of the new TV shows, only season 1, season two won’t be out till either, late this year, or the beginning of next year, 9-1-1. It doesn’t have a whole lot of raunchy scenes in it, it’s one of the better shows they’ve come out with. I like the cast of characters, I don’t prefer the preference of gay/lesbian marriages, but, I guess it’s one of the pro/con of new shows and whether you’ll like it or not. I like the engagement of the characters opening up and being human, not just hiding behind their jobs/careers, pretending to be all “hunky dory”. I also like the premise of the show, emergency operators. They’ve had so many cop, crime, court, paramedic, ER shows, they finally came out with one, outside of panic 911, an emergency operator response show.

On that note, it’s actually hit 59° here today and sunny, I’m wearing a sundress and enjoying the weather. I’ve got projects and pattern books I’m working on that I’ll share with you later.

Have a great night and prayers and blessings to you all.


I’m back, again. I have been trying to get back into my normal routine after being on momcation with my hubby, so, that has unfortunately, kept me away. Weather here in West Michigan isn’t very pleasant, so my kiddos and I are watching our church service online. It’s a very good message, a new series starting today called, “what’s your why?” I will share the link at the end for anybody who’s interested.

I have not done a whole lot of reading this week, but I’ve done quite a bit of crafting this week. I’m almost done with baby hats and baby booties for a friend of mine, having her first baby. Oh, correction, I’ve done a lot of listening to audiobooks, ones I love, it’s a four book series, I’ve probably mentioned it here before, called, elite guardian series by Lynette Eason. I’ve also started re listening to driven by eternity by John Bevere. I highly recommend both of them.

I am still on my anti inflammatory diet…. My anti inflammatory diet anyhow, consists of fruits, veggies, chicken, fresh/frozen fish, wild caught meat, no dairy, no citrus, no condiments except mustard, evoo(extra virgin olive oil), Apple cider vinegar, nuts and if course, my daily mantra of supplements that is helping, slowly, to heal my guts from the inside out….

It was really rough the first two weeks. This is my fourth week of this diet, and I’m on this diet for at least, another month. I’m re introducing eggs, hallelujah…😁😁😁😁, they do just fine with me. For anybody who’s got gut issues and having to eliminate things or be placed on a different diet, I totally sympathize with you.

Now, last but not least, here is the link to our church service, if it doesn’t play, check it tomorrow and it should play…

Have a great rest of your weekend, and I’ll catch ya later this week.

Diet update

Another thing I wanted to share with you all, since I’ve been put on healing probiotics, medical food, digestease and now garlic pills, an anti inflammatory diet, and I’ve been walking, yoga and Pilates,I can’t verify right now how much weight I’ve lost, but I know, I can fit intoa few pair of my jeans from almost three years ago. These last ten years have been brutal to my health and well being. An auto accident ten years ago started, or re started most everything from gut issues, back and neck issues and major weight gain. Since I’ve been seeing a holistic functional medicine specialist, hopefully, I can figure out exactly what’s up with my back and neck.

I’ll come back to those issues and some God learned lessons tomorrow. Again, have a wonderful night.

Catch up

Lord, before I get into my catch up, I just want to say, thank you Lord for a wonderful, beautiful day. Thank you for the sunshine, thank you for the sleep I was able to get, which hasn’t been much, and thank you for being with me, even though I deal with trust issues, that you’re there thru my issues. Lord, help me to trust you more, and start learning to let go and let God.

Good evening, before I get settled in for the night, I just wanted to catch up, see how everyone is doing? Still hanging with the hubby, viewing a different scenery, taking a moms week out, for anybody who hasn’t seen moms night out, you’ll understand.

The audiobook hubby and I have been listening to the past couple days is, last light by Terri Blackstock, she’s a Christian author. In this first installment of her four part series, is this couple, Doug and and his wife, which is eluding me at the moment, have four children, which sounds similar to my kids, except, I’ve only got one boy. Anyhow, their four kids, Denny, Jeff, Logan and Beth, have this wonderful life, beautiful home, almost all the luxuries you can possibly imagine, Doug is returning with his eldest from the airport, when, everything just shuts down, airplanes, power, watches, everything. Denny, being a spoiled brat, starts learning lessons the hard way about the middle of the book. We haven’t gotten to the end of the book yet, but I ponder the fact in our own lives, what would we do, how would we live for Christ, doing what he wants us to, if everything stopped? I’ll admit, I do enjoy my technology and the ability to look up anything I want to, but, I try to imagine having no Internet, no cell phone, no power, no running anything.

What would any of you do if everything in the world just stopped? I’m interested to know how anybody out there, thinks they’d react, or what they’d feel if everything stopped and you had to depend on good old nature.

Lord, I just want to say thank you for getting us through another day, safely and on time, no catastrophes. Lord, I pray for a good night’s sleep, and the trust and confidence and comfort, knowing you’re there for us, and you’re there when we cry out your name in times of trials or just silent issues. Thank you Jesus, in your name we pray, Amen. Have a great night everyone.


Good evening, I’m returning from a hiatus, after pondering exactly what to do with my blog, I’ve decided, I’m turning it into a lifestyle/Christian blog, being I don’t have any “One” particular niche. I’m a stay-at-home-mom of four beautiful children, two which have moved out almost two years ago, two of which are in their early teens, one getting ready to graduate from 8th grade into that dreaded, High School, and one getting ready to start her last year as a middle schooler. I’m a stay-at-home wife of my best friend and soul mate, my trucker hubby, whom I’m also the CEO/administrative Assistant/Best home administrator, according to my hubby…😊

I’m a Christian, I deal with health issues and other issues that God is trying to work on me with, which I’ll be sharing here in due time. I’m an avid reader, I love to write, and I love to learn and find information. I’m what my daughter and mother-in law call me, the information guru of the family. I love to learn, and craft. I’m a highly sensitive person, who deals with lots of other issues, again I’ll be sharing here in due time.

That is me, who I am. Currently this week, I’m in the truck with my hubby, and our resting space tonight is Troy,IL. We started our day by getting up at 5:15 this morning, showering, dressing, making sure everything was totally packed and ready. Mimi had come to get us and drop us off, and then coming back, to drop off our other phone charger, that would’ve gotten interesting…😂😂😂

We went up to get loaded, came back to the shop to get a bolt for the truck, and finally headed out about noon. I’m on a new diet, so, therefore I don’t”eat” much, I do v8 and smoothies for both breakfast and lunch, along with healthy meds, also causing me to pee quite often. We’ve driven against high winds this afternoon and evening between Indiana and Illinois and thankfully, avoided any tornados. We were in an area that had tornado watches. Right now, I’m writing this, because God has given me a new purpose for writing, therefore, I’m taking a leap of faith and starting back up.

Another thing about me is, music and books are my out, my comfort and what speak to me. Although, God uses music to talk to me, or to get me to listen to him.

Lord, thank you for a safe trip so far. Keep my family safe while we’re gone, keep us safe out here on the road. Thank you for everything today, and most of all, thank you for this time with my husband. Help us to get closer to you and to each other and to be a light for you out here. In your name I pray, Amen.

Goodnight all, sweet dreams, talk to you all tomorrow.

Second chance

It’s been two months since I’ve blogged, and it’s a few weeks before the new year. I’m trying to start a new year with new plans. When I started this blog over a year ago, I was new to this, I’ve been learning a lot over this past year and a half, however, after praying about this, and reading things that I wish I would’ve read shortly after starting this blog, and wondering how I could get myself and my writing to grow and get into the wild and get better, I came across some writing posts, that gave me many awesome ideas.

I’ve been trying to also figure out how I could start gaining experience in writing, and also working from home, and using suggestions from this writing site on the millions of ways to gain some experience in the many ways I could work from home and gain valuable writing experience. I promise, I’ll be writing alot more.

With the winter season nearing the horizon very soon, I’ve been on a craft and audiobook/show binge, and have already donated a bag of hats and scarves to my kids’ school and intending to drop off more before Christmas break starts. Once break starts, I’ll be donating to our church and other places that need stuff. I’ve been dealing with more health issues, symptoms and issues that, to date, nobody can figure out what’s going on, nor what may be causing them or how to fix them, outside of throwing more meds at them.

It’s after midnight here, I’m tired and need sleep, however, I’m still on my craft/audiobook/show binge, so have a great night all.
