Big Foot spotted in Ohio

Its been a few days since I've written anything and it's kinda hurting to type today. Ole arthur is visiting my right hand and is making my life miserable. It's been awhile since my last visit from arthur but when he comes around he stays for too long.

We've been rather busy as of late. We are getting ready for a yard sale and on top of that we are moving our storage unit so we've found all sorts of goodies for the sale. We should have done this sooner but we all know how that goes!!

On top of all the moving we've also had to go back and forth to the town where hubby works and the doctors office is. We see alot of strange things on our travels but when I saw BigFoot I nearly died. Now we've seen buffalo,emu, paca/llamas and even a zebra. There's also been reports of bear and coyote in our area but BigFoot!!!!

I truely thought I was seeing things so I made hubby slow down so I could get a pic of the thing. I mean there it was right in the middle of the field-just standing there and not moving. I was sure we were going to get a ticket as this road is a main thrufair and usually busy but this day it was quiet.

Now I know what's going thru your minds-the lady is nuttier than a fruit cake!! and maybe worse but honestly I have a picture of it. And it is a pretty darn good one too. So I'm hoping to go down in history as actually seeing BigFoot and capturing it on film.

What do you want to be when you grow up

We went out riding this morning and while we were in the middle of nowhere our granddaughter shouted out that when she grows up she wants to be an artist like grandma. Well grandma is no artist but I do like to doodle and paint . I do decorative woodcrafting ornaments-my favorite designer is Renee Mullins.
But her statement got my memory to rolling. I recall saying that when I grew up I wanted to be an artist. I would spend hours locked in my room designing paper dolls and their outfits. Those dolls had to be just right-not barbie dollish but just right in looks . I had pages and pages of them for years until I lost everything in a house fire back in 1979.
I also wanted to be a writer. I got this bug when I was in the 6th grade and met my friend Cathy. We would spend hours making up crazy stories about 2 characters called Cat Curry and Hannah Hayes ( fictional sisters of the famous outlaws Kid Curry and Hannibal Hayes--some may remember the series Alias Smith and Jones!!). We soon went on to make up things about our other famous shows, Rawhide, Rat Patrol. You know all those crazy shows. She may never know this but I continued to write up until a few years ago then just quit. I figured it was a waste of time and I'd never be famous.
Well lo and behold I decided to do a blog and now I can make my dream a reality. And who knows maybe I'll be discovered!!(ha ha)

So what do you want to be when you grow up? Never say you are too old to make those dreams come true but instead see what you can do to make them come true. It's easier than you think.

Have an awesome day and enjoy life.

Happy Father's Day

Hope all of you are enjoying your weekend. It's starting to get really hot here in Ohio but I won't complain as it was very cool just last week.

Tomorrow we will celebrate Father's Day. Here we will be cooking out today and going to church tomorrow.

Is your father still alive? Mine died in 1999. Though he wasn't a big part of my life growing up I loved him and even today miss him greatly. For the first couple years I couldn't walk past the card aisles without breaking into tears. I never failed to send him a card on his birthday, fathers day or just any time I felt like it. Cards were my way of saying I love you when I couldn't do it in person.

I guess we never really appreciate our loved ones while they are alive and sure we all have issues with these special people but someday they won't be here for us. So if your father is still alive give him a hug and tell him thank you for all he's put up with over the years. And have a very wonderful day .

Daisys Daily Dillys

Okay I am going to try this again as I messed up the first time!! You can tell this is my first attempt at a blog but I will learn.

I wanted to name my blog something catchy but really don't know if it will show. Most days in my house are crazy as we are co-raising our 5 yr old graddaughter. I say co-raising because her mother is in the evenings and Saturday but otherwise the job is mine. I also home school here and let me tell you that is something that rally drives me dilly! But she can't sit still and I refuse to do the medicine thing so crazy or not I will do it.

Right now hubby is off work due to sickness so that only adds to the craziness here. He's due to go back to work in early July. This puts a pinch in the ole wallet but God has taken care of us so I refuse to worry anymore.

I'm going to try my hand at S4H. I'm not the greatest at creating layouts but I'm trying to learn really quickly so I will be ready by Fall.

Since this is my first post I won't rattle on forever.

Hope everyone has an awesome day and appericates whatGod has given them.
