Nature Walk and Breakfast

We went for a morning walk and what we found I ended up eating for breakfast there were oranges, apples, cumquat's, figs,lemons and avocados.
lots   of different flowers and small animals,didn't eat any of these.
What a great way to start a day and to be with those you love.

Ant Invasion

Some of Judi's other pets,but they did not want to rest like Avi and myself and they sure could not read nor take pictures, so I went to the local hardware store and got some food for them, which they really seem to enjoy so Avi and I gave them three helping.
they seem to like this very much, we watched for about two day,then Avi wanted to try to take another picture and this was the results.
In case anyone is interested this food product is called Terro .

These are some that wanted to hang around for after hours, this stuff really works. see ya

One of Judi's two cats,  I said when I came out here that I was just going to visit with family and  beeeeee and that is what Avi and I did yesterday, but I have not been able to teach her how to use my new  camera that I got for my birthday, therefore there is only the picture of her.

Can't seem to find the right size frame for my wall art from upper case, so decided I will paint one right on the wall. (Black)What ya think of that kids?
Maybe I can get smart enough and put some before and after pics up.

Lets just make one thing clear right now I may be slow but do not count me out . I have been busy getting ready for my trip to Judi's and Pete's and gosh I can't wait, just to lay around and do nothing and read and visit with my grandchildren and just BEEEEEEE.
What a great place to just BE and just reflect. Don't have to cook, clean, who could ask for more.
Will try and keep you all posted or if I can't then I'm sure Judi will be sending pics.

Enjoyed every blog and tried to respond.
Had a great day with my granddaughter Marisa
just kind of stayed close to home and went next door and feed their fish, they have gone off hiking and staying at a bed and breakfast.
Marisa and I feed the outside animals and then sat back and watched as they came up and ate, she did enjoy watching the deer that came to eat that close to the house, so maybe I will set out the night camera and see what we have roaming around at night,she will like that.

GJG I have a new book I want you to look out for , it was just released last night at midnight.
Author is Brad Thor, book is "The Last Patriot", setting is in Fairfax, Va. Glen Beck had him on his TV program last night. In light of all that is going on with our government it should be very interesting.

Guess it's time for me to blog again, it's Sunday. lol
It is so hot here there is nothing one can do outside, wait for the day to cool down and then go out and water, water, water, and hope that all you have planted will not die.
We are supposed to have thunder storms tonight sometime before midnight, but they may only be thunder storms and no rain.
Did enjoy watching my granddaughter's ball game yesterday, they sure do take that stuff serious. Will be with one of the other granddaughters tomorrow and maybe we can go for a swim . Sure hope I can get better at this blogging thing.
See Ya

Oh my goodness after all those blogs what ever can I add to that.

Was never able to attend Alexi and Zach's Graduation and boy do I regret that, what a wonderful time in a young persons life, just think 18 years old people oh my gosh what we would all give to be there again and of course know what we know now. Did enjoy being there for Josh and having all the special people in his life at his party.

Well kids here I am again, had good day and thanks Missy for the dirty rice
Did some work today but mostly did some thinking about what I was going to take to Judi's for clothes, when a person is gone for 20 days you have to be careful as to what to pack,cold and hot.
Went outside tonight and lo and below there was a skunk just walking around and enjoying our yard and of course snow(our cat) was just sitting there watching it like it was another cat.
boy that would have been great inside the house as she is and inside outside cat. When I learn how to post pics I will be glad to share.
See ya

There was a little excitement today, someone we know was just bitten by a fox that had rabies and he will have to get the treatments and now I am afraid to feed the ones that have been coming into our yard. I went down to get the mail and heard a rustle in the leaves in the ditch by our mail box and when I stepped forward there was a raccoon he ran in the water drain and I ran like H___ getting back to the house. I was informed that they can run faster than me,but not today even surprised myself, didn't know this ole lady could run so fast.
Does anyone know what ant lions are? Go to google and put in ant lions,very interesting creatures,more like my speed and we have lots of them.

Fluff and fold is any day for me I don't like to let it back up.(Judi)
Not really working in my yard just did some watering.(kalo)
If I remember correct gjg you were the last one up the hill ?
Margaret has called and wants to get a cell phone for when they go camping, the kind you use with a calling card and low and behold she wants me to go help her pick one out and then show her how to use it. LOL,LOL
I will need help with this one but I don't want to disappoint her
so that she finds out I know nothing about nothing.
Don't know nothing about birth'n no babies or phones.
Still have not decided what to have for dinner, sure is still hot here.
see ya later


Hello again,will try and catch up once again.
Have had a busy week,been try to get my house work done early because of the heat, yesterday in town it was 110,100 here in the shade kind of hard to get a lot done unless you are inside.
Next Sat. my third oldest grandchild will graduate from high school and sure hope its not this hot.
Yes my thirds oldest, we have six Alex, Zach, Josh, Mark, Marisa, Sam.
They seem to be growing faster than their parents or maybe I'm just getting older (not me)
Sure hope to spend some time in Ca. in August am already looking forward to it.
well its f & f day for me along with some other things, trying to decide what to have for dinner because its so hot maybe just some crab salad will work,my guy does like his food.

Thursday, June 5, 2008


Well here I am again, sure have missed being here but think that I have everything fixed now.
Will have to go back and read all the blogs to catch up and then I will get back to everyone.
Not much going on around here Jack and I cooked 35 Steaks at International Paper today and the temp was about 80 or better (Steak,baked potato,salad iced tea, rolls and cheese cake)I knew Gary would want to know.
Just wanted to tell everyone that I have really enjoyed our contact through this blog and hope we can continue if i can keep up with what everyone is doing.
Thanks for being patient with me.

Looks like another great day in my corner of the world.
Maybe do a little shopping and try and find a few bargains, need to pick up a few things from Farm Fresh, love their crab salad.
Now that our hole digger is gone can't seem to catch anything on our night vision camera, I'm sure the critters weren't hanging around waiting for him to clear the way.
Gig last nights dinner was B-B-Q spare ribs with baked beans and cole slaw and lemon cream cake and of course iced tea.
Shout out to all our Troops and all they do to keep us safe.

Saturday, May 24, 2008


Well we think that we have finally found out what was digging some of the holes, set out a soft catch trap and low and behold we caught our selves a nice black and white skunk( sun skunks as they are called here).
Now what do you do with a skunk well you stay as far away a possible, for the last two nights his friends have come looking for him or her which ever the case maybe and they are not very happy they keep leaving us a nice smell, my neighbor made the mistake of leaving her windows and doors open, so much for airing out your house.
Jack and I helped cook yesterday at church it was hard work but we really enjoyed the fellowship with every one, did not sell as many tickets as we wanted to, but we managed to find good homes for what we had left, fixed some much chicken I started to grow feathers. Women's Ministry always do such nice things, great bunch of women.
My granddaughter Marisa is coming over to stay with me tonight so guess I better get busy and finish my work. Have a great one all and will check in later.

Monday- May 19th

What a great week-end did some more yard work and of course my friend Margaret had to bring more plants for me to put in the ground, did get them in before we had some rain.
My neighbor was not able to catch our digger on camera so I am going to try tonight. He was going for a trap today,sure can't wait to see what kind of critter it really is, we have so many out here and I do enjoy them but most are just looking for something to eat and this one is also but the others don't dig.
Stay Tuned

Saturday, May 17, 2008


Well last night was a great time, we fed about 120 people and everyone had more than enough, we had beef tenderloin, snaps, dirty rice and ice tea, cake for desert, all seemed to enjoy.
Have really been busy trying to plant some new plants in my yard and freshen up what I all ready have, my friend Margaret has been helpful and with her help I might end up with a green thumb instead of a black one.
Today Jack cooked with the Ruritan club, they had a cook off and won 3rd place, peoples choice.
Still have not found out what is digging holes in our yard, we now have a motion camera and hope we can catch what is causing all the holes.

Tuesday, May 13, 2008


Hello again thought I would answer Gary's question, sorry I forgot to mention that our new friend is 2 fox and they are great to watch, my neighbor is not to pleased because they are digging holes in his yard,told him today if he would feed them they would not dig.
Jack and I went to Sam's club today and spent over $1000.00 on food for him to cook for his ladies night at the Bronco Club for you that do not know what this is it is a hunting club for people that work or have worked a Internation Paper which at one time was Union Camp.
Well so much for that.

Tuesday-Jack's B-Day

Just getting back on so a quick up-date on my friend digging holes,well it seems a tho I have two so I started to feed them and they gave up digging.
Had a great Mothers Day the girls always give me such nice things one year it was a DVD of past pictures, then it was the scrap album they each did their on thing and then put it all together, this year it was flowers and a tree hanger and a letter,and then I cry. "My Girls" never cease to amaze me,do love them so and they are one of God's greatest gifts.
will try and post pic as soon as i learn how.
have a great day

Saturday, May 3, 2008


Well I finally got back on. Was today great or what, got a few things done, finished a project for a friend of mine.
Did a little shopping needed to get a gift for my granddaughter her B-Day is next Sat. Then Jack's will be on the 13th and he will be the big 70, and I knew him when he was 17.
Need to get outside and water some new plants that i just put in, have also been trying to figure out what is digging holes in our yard, neighbor seems to think that it is either skunk or fox or opossum or could be raccoon, maybe I can watch tonight around bedtime and see what is going on.
