I think we are going to have a beautiful day, I'm at Mom's got sick last nite with my tummy...so I came back so to be close to make sure Vee gets to school. She's up in the shower...we kind of got into it yesterday evening because she wants to go out this Thursday but I don't frankly trust her. She promised she wouldn't do no crazy stuff again..but I kind of lost my trust at the moment..so she got upset..but I told her not going to put up with all this no more I had enough and I refuse to have drugs or alcohol in my life..So the same things I told your brothers you can leave. I told her she will be 18 shortly and I will boot her out the door...not going to live my life no more crazier than I have to..So that's that. today is therapy but my tummy is so messed up been on the pot for a while not that you want to know..but this is my open diary... so I think I'm mite have to cancel and we really need to go..I don't know what made me sick I must have caught a bug from someone. I started the red star but couldn't finish do to my circumstances (my tummy)
So here is the making of it..the blue one will be a full star doily so I didn't want to do anything else to it cept the reg pattern. So today I will full around with the red one to see what I can do with it..I'm determined to make an ornament. I have something in my head but I don't know if I can produce it.. will see....lol.
I WAS LISTENING TO HIM ON YOUTUBE LAST NITE. I REALLY WANT TO GO SEE HIM IN PERSON. I WAS WONDERING IF MY PANIC WOULD ALLOW ME TO GO.
I WANT TO THANK MY NEW FOLLOWERS, SO GLAD TO HAVE YOU AND SO GLAD YOU ARE LEAVING A COMMENT I'M SO GRATEFUL...WISHING YOU ALL A WONDERFUL DAY...HUGS

GOOD MORNIN, I'M A LITTLE ON THE LATE SIDE. BEEN TRYING TO SEND MY PICTURES OVER TO AOL...WELL WE FINALLY GOT DOWN STAIRS AND OF COURSE IT WAS A HUGE TANGLED MESS FROM ONE END TO THE OTHER. BUT IT'S INTERESTING, I FOUND SOME NICE ROUND CAKE PANS. AND I FOUND A EMBROIDERED TABLE CLOTH BUT OUT IN THE LIGHT I REALIZED IT HAD A TON OF STAINS THEY LOOKED LIKE WATER STAINS SO I TRIED SPRAY AND WASH AND LET IT SET FOR SEVERAL HOURS IT TOOK SOME OUT BUT THE MOST STAYED IN..SAD. I ALSO FOUND THIS SILKY PINK BEDSPREAD WHICH LATER I FOUND A MOTH HOLE ON IT AND SOME LITE STAINS..BUT I FIGURED I CAN MAKE LITTLE PILLOWS WITH IT. IT'S VERY PRETTY.
WELL I TOOK IT HOME AND WASHED IT ALL UP AND THE CAKE PANS THEN AROUND 9PM LAST NITE DECIDED TO MAKE A QUICK CAKE..SO I JUST GRABBED A BOX WHITE CAKE MIX..THEY WORKED NICELY I LOVE THEM ...
I LOVE THIS SIZE. I THINK THEY ARE 9 INCH...SO HERE IS MY LITTLE OLE CAKE ALL FROSTED UP.
THE OTHER DAY I HAD MADE SOME SAUCE WITH SOME CHERRIES AND A COUPLE OF STRAWBERRIES SO I PUT THAT IN THE MIDDLE WITH SOME HOME MADE CREAM CHESSE FROSTING...WILL SEE HOW IT TASTE LATER...LOL AFTER BREAKFAST. I ALSO FOUND A LARGE PYREX MEASURING CUP AND THREE CUTE LITTLE CLEAR PYREX CUSTARD CUPS.
THE PICTURE IS NOT THE GREATEST BUT LOL WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH JUST A CEL PHONE..
TOO MANY PILLOW CASES..SO LAST NITE I THOUGHT HUMM...THE GRAND CHILDREN DIRTY MY SEAT COVERS AND I THOUGHT WHY CAN'T I USE THE PILLOW CASE TO COVER MY PADS.
THIS ONE I JUST COVERED THE TOP BECAUSE THE OTHERS HAD CASES SO THEY WOULDN'T SCRATCH THE WALLS...
WELL THAT WILL WORK FOR NOW, TILL I BUY SOME NEW ONES AND MAKE A SHORT COVER FOR THE TOP..FOR SOME REASON THE CHAIRS MARK UP THE WALL AND THERE WILL BE BLACK MARKS.IT WAS DRIVING ME CRAZY.
SO THATS SOME OF THE THINGS I DID YESTERDAY..I WANTED TO SHOW YOU THE RED STAR DOILY THAT I STARTED BUT OF COURSE THIS DARN PICTURE THINGY ISN'T WORKING AGAIN..MAYBE LATER ...WELL ENJOY YOUR DAY..
Ha it's working now..my old trusty Tupperware cake keeper..it works well upside down as well..well for transporting in the car the two cakes.....

WEll I believe we are off to a great start this Monday morning, Vee got up and even though she was tired, she said, she had a good attitude and got ready for school. That's a plus for me. I dropped her off and I'm of course at Mom's. In a little while I will go down stairs and start in. Cleaning that is. I figure just a little bit at at time and not to over do it I will get things done. I really want to find Mom's China that Dad sent from Japan and bring it home don't know where I'm putting it but I want to use it before we both die...terrible but true! I want to have a dinner and have her over and use those dishes...Sounds good to me...
The garden is finally doing better well lol the new seeds helped..Listening to Mom o they are still good...Nope they weren't any good..the new seeds just popped rite up.
The radishes and carrots and lettuce and finally some green onions...Well my Swiss Chard took off along time ago and is now producing well. I have plucked it about five times now and it's ready again..I picked a few last nite to put into my Ramen noodles that I normally don't eat but it was to late when we got home to defrost something..so last resort.
The cherry tomato plant went crazy up the fence and drowned the reg tomato one...hum.
The AOL is lagging this morning. I can't get my pictures..darn it..lol if it's not the AOL it's the thingy on here won't work...Take a deep breath.
My Fushia plant I almost didn't think it was going to bloom this year. But it did, It's not as healthy as it was but I'm thinking maybe I should move it to a different location in the garden.
My old strawberries are doing great..they are already making new babies...I took a few big strawberries off them yesterday...stuck them in the freezer.
My sweetpea and my new Rose Plant..I finally put it into the ground.
Well last my cosmos...they were there when I moved in. Stuck inside this little pot. So I took them out and planted them and they blew up...they are lite purple and pretty...my sun flowers are finally growing ...lol..maybe they will be finished before fall comes.
Lastly my lastest part of the garden that I been working on. . . I have a lot more to do. but time and money...Well my sweet friends. I wish you a fabulous Monday day...it's off to the downstairs...

So this morning I'm going upstairs in the attic where I have some things stored and look for my white linens and I have a couple of dolls with blue and turquoise colors in the clothes and whatever else..O I have this fifties turquoise lamp but Idk if it will fit in..but I'm thinking to take it home anyways and put it in my dinning room..lol I have gone mad. I lost a few things when I moved before I had some boxes stacked in Mom's hallway and I think my younger son threw some of it away because when I looked through them things were missing..darn boy don't know what he was thinking of...anyways don't want to dwell on that. I want to do my vision I have for my room..I need a truck though to bring this other wrought iron bed frame over to my house and this other cabinet I been wanting to bring. And I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to paint those dressers. hummmmmmmmmmm!
My inspiration ... I saw a whole bunch of photos from this blog. O darn I forgot the name. I couldn't add it though there are some blogs you can't follow it's weird I don't understand it all but I guess in time. My cover is lite not dark but just the same maybe this will be the color to make my room better. I have tried some many things in the almost year I have been but can't find what looks nice. So I pray this will be it to satisfy my soul...
It was turquoise something, the blog...terrible thing my memory. sorry.
Look at this brite room..I love it...if I had the money I would do this to fast..lol..pretty I think don't you..
Turquoise just seems to be the color at the moment...and green Pyrex...Wishing you a lovely Saturday my friends...may you find a good dream...Enjoy you day.. with love Janice

Mornin, okay Yesterday was crazy, bad news we got around 10 p.m. A close friend of the family came down the street to tell me her baby brother had died. Her and her daughter and her daughter's friend. At first I was like who's at the door. It was kind of weird at first. When I opened the door, I was like what is she doing her so late with her daughter..when I walked down the first few stairs she leaned over and told me that. I was like what did you say. the my baby brother part didn't make sense to me. Life is so strange..Her brother was something else..I remember when he was young he was a very handsome man. blonde hair tall and slender..but his attitude wasn't the hotest. He has given her a bad time for a long time. She had problems mentally. she has to take medication. I just couldn't believe it. I still can't, death is such a strange thing as well. hard to accept and cope with. Well now she will be all alone in their family house. I hope she will be okay and take her medicine. because there has been times in the past she stopped and flipped out..even though he was a jerk at times he took care of her... well R.I.P Bill Poppin...Life is so short and most don't realize how short it is. I can't wait till the world changes and the Father above makes the life the way he originally attended.
So the next thing that was. Victoria, went out with friends and got stinkin drunk. I had to call for an ambulance because she well I didn't know if she had took something else because she started jerking, her body...My kids are going to be the death of me yet... so she spent the nite at the hospital I spent the night alone worrying and nerves and trying not to panic...then when I went to pick her up at the hospital there was a car in the middle of the hospital grounds at the emergency all shot up ... then when I got closer to my house the other side of the street was all blocked up with cars and bullets on the floor..yesterday was a crazy day...This world is slowly falling apart...I was suppose to go to church but I was so tired I couldn't have. Today I have to take Mom to see the doctor. First time I will be going without Vee...well the good from it was that I did stay alone at home and I drove to Mom's house alone..Plus for me. this morning I feel nerves though. ..
What are you going to be doing today???? It's fogged out outside..going to make a hot cup of tea..maybe it will help me relax. I'm still tired. O I just remembered I have to wash the pot out...the kitty Sprinkles was sticking her paw in it..
Because it's near the dryer...they have a bed on the dryer next to the little counter near the stove...she likes to stick her paws in the water they both do..they do it to their water bowl. They definitely are strange cats..hummmm
Are you ready for some hot tea to warm your soul....?
O and I have a new follower, thank you gardenofdaisys...I appreciate it very much.
O and before I forget things didn't work out with me and Ben...He has a not so good attitude underneath...I suppose that's why you need to take you time and search people out...I never met him in person so that was good. It was kind of a strange thing anyways..Well it's Friday and I don't know whether I want to go home today or stay...maybe I will stay and get my self to get down stairs and start in...Vee kind of messed things up threw me off...But she is going to go to school today...so that's good rite. I haven't really said to much to her. I don't want to say the wrong things...She did ask me if I was mad at her when I went to pick her up...I said no just hurt inside because I thought that you understood you can't drink at all...and I thought we were on the rite track...Well I guess that's all. I need to get her up and get myself ready as well...busy morning. Though It's that time of the month and I don't feel like doing anything but laying in bed..lol that's funny I never do that...Have a very wonderful day be safe...See you later with love!!!
