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.

Final Prepping

Final to do lists, final buys, final prepping.  I want to be able to relax when I get home sweet home Monday from grocery shopping since I don't have to work again until after Christmas. 

I enjoy sitting down and making out my cards listening to Christmas music. 

When I'm home for the day, I love the lights out, Scentsy fragrances filling our little home, and Christmas movies or music.  I can't wait to bake my Red Velvet cake, bake sugar cookies with the Miniature Cowgirl, and sip on hot cocoa.  Well to be honest, probably more coffee sipping than hot cocoa sipping.

Naughty or Nice

The Miniature Cowgirl is trying so hard to be less naughty these days and more nice.

Of course, she's always an angel in my eyes.  

And as you can see in the above picture,  it's time to put the camera down and let her go play.
