I guess I am lucky?

It seems to me I must be lucky.
I rarely get sick.
I avoid doctors also.
I give blood where they send me reports on BP and Blood Sugars so I am aware of those factors.
I check for lumps and bumps regular.
I also am very aware of whats "normal" pertaining to my body.
Surprisingly a lot of people are not familiar with their own bodies and are surprised by things .
I eat as much unprocessed food as I can.
Meat from livestock I grow, veggies from my garden, fruit either I grow or local orchard.
I do not eat "organic" because as someone who lives the ag life I know its not true.
I guess I am lucky.
I also am not a hypochondriac and that helps.
I do worry that with modern society either all organic or all processed people go to extremes.
Living around animals, manure and outside influences without living in an airtight house helps also. 
People I know that live in development homes that are airtight and eat "wholesome organic food"
seem to get sick a lot.
No immunities to nature?
Just my Friday musings.
If you only knew a bit of what rolls around in my noggin you would be scared.

Old to New

Digging through our “little” room where stuff is stored I found this...

My kids loved it . The garage is on the other side where the car can drive into it. The lid lifts up to see the bed area and the dog you see is sitting in the area by the bed. The sliver of orange above the roof is a chimney that has a slide inside. There is a bell to sound and a butterfly to move around. Miss A will enjoy this I’m sure as much as the others have. Prefect toddler size, I brought out the Little People house but she’s a bit too young to appreciate it.

This weekend I’m house/dog sitting for my son while he and his family go to PA. When I arrived I found this gem waiting on me.

It’s so me and will hold my tea nice and warm.

R and I went to an open house at a shop near us. I love these towels that came home with me. They open up with another panel but they don’t fit on my stove handle full size. I wanted to show you the red stripes.

Somehow these jumped in my truck too. They have a greenish cast to them. They didn’t photograph well as it’s getting dark earlier now.

Back to going through stuff and purging. Too bad it will take 20 years to make a dent.

Well she makes the rules...

                  Miss A decided the hat and 

                        bag was just too much. 

       Didn’t matter a bit because she was

      the cutest Strawberry Shortcake ever.

                   Her sass cracks me up.

         I try not to let her see it but it’s there.

                            Lordy help us!

The Girl...

Came to see us!

               Can you see R in the sunset 

                 messing with Gemstone?

  She worked near me and stopped by after             work to torture the girls.

         Miss Diamond was asking me,

                “Why is that girl here again?

     Every time she shows up we have to      endure her attention and selfies and petting.”

Strawberry Shortcake

R2 asked me to make a costume for Miss A to wear trick or treating next week. She is fully aware it’s for R2’s benefit as Miss A will never remember at 18 months old.

Strawberry Shortcake was requested and here’s my attempt.

We used a simple store bought a-line dress.

R2 also bought green and white striped tights so we oughta be good to go.

Hopefully I’ll have pictures to show off her next week. Fittings were difficult last night as she flipped and flopped and cried so fingers crossed.

Don’t examine it too closely . It’s thrown together without seam finishes.

If Momma’s happy Grandma’s happy.

Done before...

Christmas season.

Socks are finite finally. I don’t keep at it so it took a year . Oh well at least I finished .

Self striping yarn is pretty nice.

I tried to start about the same place on the second sock.

Matched up pretty well.

Now to start a Christmas present that is to gifted this year not next.

...someone fade away who was vibrant and full of life is humbling.

My Dad hang the moon for me.

Oh the stories I can NEVER share of his escapades. 
It’ll be a long haul but signs are so prevalent now.
He doesn't want to stay here handicapped by his waning health.
He was always a vibrant person , always working at something.
Nothing he couldn't fix or build.
Now those memories are fading or gone. 
My memories of him will never fade but most will remain private.
He was something alright but loose lips sink ships.
We were a team and I have never been closer to anyone.

I hope to encourage him to try but I see his point also.
There just are not enough words ...

I woke up to 50• outside and 60• inside. I am happy, happy, happy!

Hopefully the bugs will go away so Miss A and I will be able to go outside without getting bit every two feet or so. We are magnets for mosquitos. Her more than I but I still get bit a lot more than others.

She loves to play outside so hopefully she will be able to without looking like a leprosy patient.

No amount of flea medicine either prescribed or over the counter works on dog and cat that run through fields and pastures. 

My night lights and bowls of soapy water are spred through the house. I change it daily. The amount is thinning. Some bowls are only containing one or two fleas but may contain small spider or moth. Yea they die too yeah! I'll keep this up till frost shows up. I do not turn heat on until after frost. I do not let cat or dog inside either. S does after I go to bed, he thinks I don't know it. Nothing bites him so he doesn't care.

Common sense has died in America

I do not care if you like this blog, is for my personal use not to please the world.

I read others blogs and enjoy them.

I DO NOT try to tell them they are wrong nor do I preach to them.

I believe most bloggers write as a journal also.


I have unfollowed so many lately because I can't take the negativity about our country.

Historically we have had horrible Presidents but I can not remember any 
being trashed daily over every word and having their lives threatened such as is happening now.

Good, bad or indifferent Trump is America's President.

{Geeze Nixon didn't get this much hatred and he was impeached and resigned.}
Respect our President, respect our flag, respect America!
I have disliked some of our Presidents but I kept it to myself and didn't act like a fool.
The protests are ridiculous, period.
I will not watch football anymore or any sport or show that disrespects the USA.

What the hell has happened to common sense and patriotism anyhow?

If you don't like my opinion please unfollow me, don't bother commenting.
