A Little Slice of Heaven on Earth

Here I go with lists again! lol I have had some great times this week! Here is a list of my favorite things I have done this week.

1. Watched favorite movies such as The Family Stone and Steel Magnolias. As I speak (write) I am watching Steel Magnolias. I decided I wanted to watch it again for the umpteenth time ( I swear it's close to 500 times), after talking with my bestest friend Vicki on facebook last night. She and I talked in Steel Magnolia code with conversation leaning towards "lemme put it this way, if you and Jackson wanna practice safe sex you're all set" and "Ouizer, you know I love you more than my luggage" or "Clairee, you are too twisted for color tv", and my ALL TIME favorite "He's a real gentleman, I bet he takes the dishes outta the sink 'fore he pees in it". I was howling with laughter as we talked. We were discussing mundane things just throwing these lines in where appropriate. Which leads me to #2.

2. Chillin' with my bestest friend Vicki. We went to the pool (courtesy of the redneck country club, you have to know which one we are talking about to get why I call it that) and hung out watching her kids goof off while she and I drank a beer and sunned ourselves. After awhile we had to get in the pool because folks it was hotter than a fire powered by diesel fuel. lol. The great thing about the country club is that they call a break about every hour for 20 minutes or so in which NO children are allowed in the pool, but adults are. It makes for such a peaceful float.

3. Gardening. Ok we know that I love that already, and do it almost every week. I mowed my yard (don't tell my chiropractor, he forbade me to do it anymore), chomping up all those nasty leaves left over from the tornado. Today, my momma took me to the daylily farm. OH MY GOODNESS! Let me just say that if you have never been, and you are in the area, you should go. You can dig up day lillies (well they dig them up) that you can't find anywhere else. This man has thousands. He breeds them and makes his own hybrids which are gorgeous. As soon as I get some pictures of the ones I bought, I will post them. The one drawback, creepy crawlies. They put daylillies in a bag (you get a clump which can include 1 or more potatoes, most have 3 or more and therefore you can divide them out when you get home, so you get 3 for the price of 1) and you get dirt and all. In this dirt, are the BIGGEST night crawlers you have ever seen. I hate worms. EWWWWWWWWWWW!

4. Started my new Bible devotional. It's called The Power of the Praying Wife. I, of course, am only on week 1 and chapter 1, but so far, it's great. It talks about how a wife has more power than she knows. It tells how even the wife of a non-believer can reap blessings for her husband just by praying to God, having faith, and most importantly putting God first in her life. I will keep you updated as to how it goes as I progress.

5. Spent LOTs of time with my momma. I love that woman. She is my best friend, my sister, my mother, and all rolled in one. I love spending time with her. She and I have such a good time and I just draw so much strength from her. She is a PHENOMENAL woman!

These are some of the best things I did this week. I hope everyone else had a great week also, and HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all the fathers in the world


  1. I got your message and I'm definitely thinking of you! You make me so proud- you always pull yourself up by the bootstraps and keep trucking with a beautiful smile along the way!

    I love everything on your list!

    I think my mom used that devotional and if I remember correctly she loved it!

    Love you, girl!

  2. By the way, I find it hilarious that my little "captcha" thing I had to type just now was the word LOBSTU. That cracks me up!
