Time for Rufus and Cleaning

This morning before anyone else could hog my time I gave it all to Rufus.  I always get up before the sun to spend some quality time with the SON in prayer, thoughts, thankfulness.

With the clock ticking by so fast each morning, I don't always have a lot of time for Rufus before housework, cooking, job, etc.  This is our Saturday morning.  I plan to clean a lot later today and purchased myself a little incentive which you'll read about later in the post.  Do you ever do that?

Me and Rufus went outside into the beautiful fresh spring grass.  Wet from several days of raining, and just slightly cool.

We played a lot of ball in between some picture taking.  I can't believe he'll be 3 years old in June.  He's dirty and stinky and needs a bath this afternoon when it's warmer.  But he knows his mommy wuvs him no matter how dirty and stinky he is.








Yesterday on my lunch hour I found this adorable little chalk board.  I love chalk boards.  I found this one at a Bealls Outlet that I love to plunder through.  It matches my china and I knew instantly that I wanted it.  I gave myself the excuse that this would be my incentive to dust and redecorate a little as I cleaned today.



 
I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon.  I'm making red velvet cupcakes tonight if you want one with coffee.

Still Adjusting

Hey, hello, hi!  I feel like it's been forever since I blogged.

I've been working hard and hard at work.  I just told hubby last night that I haven't even been able to enjoy my early spring flowers that have already boomed.

It always takes me a long time to get used to major changes.  I'm still 100% in love with my new job. I've been adjusting for a little over 2 months now.

Here are some screen savers I'm going to put on my computer at work this morning.  Just trying to cozy up my home away from home for 8 hours each day.  I've done little things here and there.



 
I miss home sweet home here on Lillie Mae Acres when I'm gone.  But God did bless me with a great job, great atmosphere, and some of the greatest co-workers/new friends there could be.

Thanks for dropping in.  I pray everyone has a blessed week.  Enjoy spring.

New Job New Cookbook

Hey there.  There's a lot going on right now, I've been a very busy lady.  I've got God to thank for everything, He always comes through for this ole' girl.  I am too blessed to be stressed, as my pretty tote has on it.


For several years now I've been praying for God to open the door for me to get back into a nice office job, the clerical field, full time with benefits.  I held on in faith.  He showed me once again that He doesn't do something half way.  I have a great new job, full time with benefits and it all happened suddenly, within a few weeks.

I'm sort of still in the adjustment period with my new daily routine.  But I'm loving every minute of it.


I hit the road early, I have a beautiful drive in before the crowds hit the highway.  

I'm usually armed with coffee or Coke.  


I'm always armed with God's word, my shield.  



See how bad my truck needs detailing.  Well I'm taking it in for a full detail this morning.  Not exactly what I wanted to do on a Saturday, but since I have to leave it I'll be spending the day with my son in town.  That makes it worth it.  


I listen to SBN radio or CDs of my preacher preaching all the way to work.  I commute about 27 miles one way.  Long enough to pray and worship God before the day gets started.  I love it.   


Oh, and I'm proud to announce I'm in another book.  Don't you just love a good slice of cake with your afternoon coffee?  Well when this one hits the shelves, look over on page 200 and try my Lemon Crunch Pound Cake.  It's a yummy one.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a blessed weekend.

Banjo Boy turns 21! Yes 21!

Good beautiful February 23rd evening folks.  It's been a while and I was missing blogging.  I've been a little sad today, my baby turned 21 years old.  As I worked and it would cross my mind, I would almost take a deep breath and gasp a little.  Hey, it might sound silly but I just can't believe it.










In a lot of ways Banjo Boy is a carbon copy of his daddy Builder Man.  In a lot of ways they are opposites.  May he bring as much joy to the rest of my life as he has for the past 21 years.

Poor Poor Baby Dolls

Poor poor Baby (Beebee), she talks if her tummy is pressed so she has to stay in the car and can't go in church.  Poor poor Lollipop (Oeepop) she gets drug around by her pigtail through the dirt and grass, but she can go into church with us because she doesn't talk.   


It's probably not so bad being a 2 1/2 years old's favorite dolls.  You might get drug around by your hair, but it's out of love.

Just A Few Pics To Share

The Miniature Cowgirl is growing way too fast.  Holidays are coming and going way too fast.  Do you feel like everything is spinning and spinning faster and faster? 

We've had beautiful weather here lately in between some rain.  Nothing too cold and frosty so far and here we are heading way too fast towards the end of January. 

That's why Valentine's Day is already on my mind.  Of course the fact that it's all in our faces in every store we walk in doesn't help.









This darling 2 1/2 year old child from God has my heart.   Her favorite things are horses (real and My Little Pony), Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Doc McStuffins, playing dolls with Nana (me), and food.  She could live off of bread and fruit snacks if we would let her.  She loves going to Sunday School and church with Nana and our weekly grocery shopping trips.  Her and I are just about bestest friends.

Play-Doh playin' CoWgirL

Who knows, she may grow up to create great sculptures and become famous and rich.  But we won't get ahead of ourselves, she's basically just learning to roll snakes.


It makes for a great activity on a yucky rainy day when the slide, swing, and trampoline are wet.
