Well tomorrow I will be 49. Wow. That seems so old. But somehow I still feel young. Now granite in some ways I feel it. But honestly I love my life and where I am. My kids are all out on their own and the relationships I have with them are amazing. I truly feel like I accomplished something really big with them. They are all doing so well and growing and learning soooo much. I feel that I have accomplished a big achievement regardless of the reasons they are all amazing. I believe I have created my legacy. I have many years to continue teaching them and loving them but at least I know I have done good so far. I hope you all know how much I love you and am proud of you. Thanks for letting me continue to be your mom.
Well since the storm I haven’t had much time to write. Me and Rob made our 1 year. My granddaughter Irena turned 4. Grace graduated basic and is now in Monterey California. Work is going good. And I’m just steady fixing my little rv up. Today is Mabon. Sunday is my birthday and Stella is getting spayed tomorrow. Life is going pretty good. Well for now I want to go celebrate my holiday and relax….

Well our power is back on. I will be headed home in 30 minutes to put my home back in order. It’s been a long 10 days. From the fear of having no home to almost dying from carbon monoxide poisoning to living in the back room of the VCOA with our dogs and cat. To finally getting to go home. I’m truly thankful for everyone that helped us out and making it a comfortable enough 19 days. And I’m truly sorry to those who weren’t as lucky as us. So let’s get back to normal….ok j/k. Let’s get back to life.
Well, Here we are recovering from yet another set back. It’s ok though, these are the things that make us strong. Power is up in alot of places. Leesville is almost fully restored. some of Anacoco is restored. Hornbeck, still waiting the ETR is Sunday. This month for me will be rebuilding and renewal. preparation for the final months of 2020. So…….Let’s do this!!!!
Well it’s day 6. Got a shower today. Cold but absolutly the best shower I’ve ever had. Getting used to the homeless thing. I’m just glad we have somewhere to sleep with ac. Hopefully just 2-3 more days til power is back on. Well gonna go chill for a while.
So we are on our way to Alexandria to find gas and some hot food. This is definitely a nightmare. But I’m so glad to have this car with awesome ac. We are under a heat advisory for the next 2 days. Of course right now……really. Still no real plans on where we are gonna stay. Hopefully our power will be on by the end of the week like they say. We will probably just hop around until then. Well wish us luck.
So the above is a real thing and very dangerous. As Ive said robs parents got a generec installed to power their entire house. Lights went out generec came on. It’s been running since Thursday morning at around 2:30. We stayed there Thursday and Thursday night. I had a bit of a headache Friday when I woke up but we left and went to help friends and family around noon. We got home about 8-9. As soon as we got back my head started hurting again. I slept Friday night and I can’t remember much at all of Saturday except I was sick and my head was still really hurting. This morning rob really felt something was wrong. He also felt bad. He made me get up and go outside to the car to see if getting out of there helped. I was confused and really sick. We went to the medic station in Anacoco. My vitals were ok. They sent fire dept out and the house was saturated at 200 which is highly dangerous. Apparently the tank was located too close to the house and the fumes were going right in the house through the ac. We left and came to town where there is limited ac and no poison. Damn. We are very lucky.
So we all made it but everything is a mess. There are trees down everywhere and power lines twisted in ways I can’t even believe. I will post a few pictures on here of some of the damage. The biggest bummer is that our power is out Indefinitely. Soonest will be a week but more likely 3 weeks. My rvs are perfect which is a miracle. So now we clean up and wait for power.
It’s 2:30 in the morning. The rain and wind has just started to hit us here. The power already flickered off and on a few times. I’m sitting in the living room debating whether to go out and see what’s going on. But as I sit here I can hear things in the wind. Probably won’t go out. Lol. It made landfall about an hour and half ago. Well that’s what’s happening here. I’ll be back….
Well it’s a bit past 8:30. It’s pretty calm outside and it’s a nice Wednesday night. Wait…we have about 4 hours until Hurricane Laura makes landfall about 90 miles south of us. Right now it is a category 4 storm. But honestly, only 7 mph away from a category 5. We have gotten everything of value and things that can’t be replaced out of our rvs and have come about 500 feet away to Robs parents house. We are staying here tonight. It’s supposed to be a really bad storm. We are on the dirty side of the eye so most of the wind damage will happen here. We are completely prepared to wake up in the morning and not have our rvs anymore. It’s gonna be a long night. I will keep everyone as informed as I can. If you are in the same path be safe…..
Had a great day with my friend tiny and his kids. Also got to see an old friend from like 8 years ago. It was a great day.
Spending the day on Toledo bend in a pontoon boat with my dear friend tiny and his family. It’s a perfect day for it.
Vinyl plank is better than vinyl sheeting. Porcelain is better than ceramic. On countertops quartz is better than granite.
Tonight is the new moon in Leo ♌️. I will be doing a simple ritual using a candle in a bowl of water with a pinch of salt. Meditation on the inner spiritual self is key. What is it I want in my life? How do I achieve this? I will write it out with more answers as they come to me. I will get in touch with my goddess and listen for wisdom. I will pull a tarot card and give my intention to the earth for powerful guidance. So mote it be. As the moon goes dark tonight you have a blank slate what will you do with it.
This song I just love. It’s from the show Star. One of my favs.
I was and am an addict. This song was very relevant to me at one time. I’ll never forget the moment that I was listening to this song and it hit me hard. It wasn’t too long after that night I was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and locked up for awhile. I lost everything that night but on the other hand I gained my life back.
Music is soooo essential to me. If you wanna know about me listen to the lyrics of the songs I listen to. I’ll try to leave a few songs for y’all when I can. Soooo this week hmmmmmm
Friday night we went to the lake for a party. Had fun watches the sun set. First time I’ve been to the lake this year. Saturday went and hung out with Becca and Jesse. Love those 2. Today just hung around house cleaned and had a quiet day. Did a bit of decorating and mostly enjoyed being home. Pictures to follow
Being Wiccan has changed my life sooooo much. It’s such a beautiful craft. I’ve found a peace and inner joy that I have never had. I want to share that peace with everyone but also keep mine. Blessed be!!!
Well my dear sweet Deandra and Jimmy finally did it. They got married yesterday. They have been together for 10 years. It was a very nice quaint ceremony. We really enjoyed it. Pictures to follow. Also got to talk to my grace tonight. She called for a few minutes. She sounded great. I’m so glad. It was a pretty great week. Work is good and I’m starting to get the swing of it all. We watched Captain Phillips tonight. I never get sick of that one. It’s sooooo good if any of y’all haven’t seen it you must. Well day is done and I’m going to relax. Spent the day cleaning. Here’s to a new week.
This is my Goddess.
PERSEPHONE was the goddess queen of the underworld, wife of the god Haides (Hades). She was also the goddess of spring growth, who was worshipped alongside her mother Demeter in the Eleusinian Mysteries. This agricultural-based cult promised its initiates passage to a blessed afterlife.
Persephone was titled Kore (Core) (the Maiden) as the goddess of spring’s bounty. Once upon a time when she was playing in a flowery meadow with her Nymph companions, Kore was seized by Haides and carried off to the underworld as his bride. Her mother Demeter despaired at her dissappearance and searched for her the throughout the world accompanied by the goddess Hekate (Hecate) bearing torches. When she learned that Zeus had conspired in her daughter’s abduction she was furious, and refused to let the earth fruit until Persephone was returned. Zeus consented, but because the girl had tasted of the food of Haides–a handful of pomegranate seeds–she was forced to forever spend a part of the year with her husband in the underworld. Her annual return to the earth in spring was marked by the flowering of the meadows and the sudden growth of the new grain. Her return to the underworld in winter, conversely, saw the dying down of plants and the halting of growth.
In other myths, Persephone appears exclusively as the queen of the underworld, receiving the likes of Herakles and Orpheus at her court.
Persephone was usually depicted as a young goddess holding sheafs of grain and a flaming torch. Sometimes she was shown in the company of her mother Demeter, and the hero Triptolemos, the teacher of agriculture. At other times she appears enthroned beside Haides
Well here we are in August. Life is happening all around us. This month is the time to lay low and soak up what we have learned so far this year. It’s hot so we stay inside but let us reflect and absorb things and get ready for the fall and holidays. Namaste.
Well I’ve picked myself up from the negativity and am back on track. AND……I bought a new car. Brand new car 9 miles on it when I got in it to drive. I can’t believe I was able to do it. 4 years since my life fell into shit and I have rebuilt this much. I’m super proud of myself. I’ll post pics in a bit.
Well we are at the end of another week. Sometimes I feel like I’m fighting negativity in my own little world. It’s hard to ignore when it’s close to home. It’s true what they say about negative overpowering positive. It’s easier to be drug down than to lift others. It’s all part of the journey just a part that is not fun. I’ve come too far to get pulled down. Well for now I will not fall into the muck and I will rise up and carry on.
For my friend. Patience my dear this is a very impressionable time in my life. I have some great memories and of course some horrific ones. This part starts with us driving a uhaul to blanding Utah. We arrived and mordith had a mobile home near the main road leading into this tiny town. He was how do I say a hoarder. To the max. There was a path from the front door of the house down the hall to the bathroom and bedroom. My mom being the clean freak that she is hot that place like a tornado and made it a home in no time. Mordith owned around 5 acres next to where the mobile home sat. He had another mobile home on that property as well. We stayed put where we were for a little while but eventually moved onto the property and faced the two mobile homes toward each other and put a walk way between the back doors. A few memories from the first spot are when I ran into a hummingbird and knocked it out. I thought I killed it but when we went out to check on it it had flown off. I also remember there was a restaurant right across the street called Kenny’s restaurant. I don’t remember too much else from that first few months. Mordith at this time seemed like a really nice guy. We started attending church at the Mormon church and all seemed to be going great.
Well to wrap up this first part of my story I’ll talk about my mom. As you can tell she had some rough moments but she was young and did the best she could. The next part of my story starts with my mom going to Utah to visit her sister who lived in a little Mormon town. Blanding. I believe all my mom ever wanted was to be with someone and have a family. So far things had not worked out for her. Her sister was married to a nice man who flew airplanes. She had been through some crap as well. She was born Serilla Sue. She went by sally. She for whatever reason disowned her 3 daughters ran away changed her name to Joey James and married this man. My mom went by herself to visit. She was there about a week or so. When she came home she told us she had flown to Las Vegas and married a man named Mordith Harvey. We were moving to Utah.
Wow is it ever hot 🥵. Normal Louisiana in July. Trying to do some organizing and cleaning up 🧹. 2 things I hate about Louisiana July and August. Week 2 of the new job and I’m still enjoying it. I’m learning a lot about floors. It’s actually pretty cool stuff. I just need to watch lots of videos to learn everything I can. Gonna go help my sweet sister in love paint later and maybe go visit marge. I miss her. Well back to work.
Well here I am again saying happy birthday to my youngest a day late. The reason she isn’t here. She at basic. My grace turned 18 yesterday. 10 years and 2 days after my first my sweet baby was born. She was born at ft Carson Colorado. A scheduled c-section. She was born at 830 am weighing in at 6lbs 12 oz same as Brandon. She has also grown up to be a beautiful smart and amazing woman. I’m again so proud to be her mom I love you grace
Well 28 years ago I gave birth to my first child Brandon Micheal. He was born at home with a midwife. It was amazing. I was pretty much a single mom with him for his first few years. All of that story later. What I can say is that Brandon has been through a lot in his life. Despite all the struggles and challenges my little boy has grown into a wonderful and awesome man. I’m so proud of him and all he has accomplished. I am so lucky to have him as my son. I love you Brandon. You make me a better person. I’m honored to call you my son. Happy Bithday 🎂
My mom and dad were only together about 2 years after I was born. I don’t have too much memory of him. I remember a couple visits with him where he bought me big stuffed animals and such. I also remember my older siblings visiting my dad at the same tine as me. My oldest sister didn’t like me cuz she was the only girl until me. My brothers used to have stroller races with me and the neighbors. I know that after I was 4 I never saw him again until I was a teenager.
Well we had a great day yesterday. Lots of pool time friends family awesome food and tons of fireworks. It was great. All followed by that beautiful full moon.
Well it has been a wonderful week. New job is absolutely awesome. Got my first paycheck at my beginning rate and it was quite a bit more than I was getting. The job is way less stressful and my experience is paying off. I’m super happy with my decision. So today we are going to a friends house for swimming bbq and fireworks later. Also it’s a full moon tonight so this is gonna be a great and fun day. Pictures to follow.
Well I’m glad this week is over. On to a new chapter. We went to dinner last night to say bye to Grace. She left today 😢. I also packed up my office at the law center. I’m ready to see what this new job has in store for me. Well I must get ready for bed and make sure I have everything ready. Here are a couple pics of my Gracie
Well as I said before big change in my life. I have changed jobs in the midst of all of this. I will no longer be a legal secretary. I took a pay raise to run a flooring store. It’s what is best for my pocket right now. I won’t go into detail but I just know I need to be somewhere else now. I have loved my job and the people I work with and my clients. Some of whom I now consider friends. It wasn’t an easy choice but one I had to make. Wish me well I start Monday. Until then I have to say goodbye to my little girl Grace. She leaves tomorrow for basic training. I’m so proud of her but tonight’s dinner will be hard.
Well without saying much the next few days will be extremely difficult for me. Big decisions and moves. Do we ever know if our decisions are the right ones? That is what life is about I suppose taking chances that we think will be lucrative and hope we r right. I will be listening to my deities and doing a reading. So with that said I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Well life is very busy right now. Trying to get stuff started. Work and home. My grace leaves Sunday for basic training. I’m so very proud of her. But will miss her terribly. I also started taking CEU classes again. The first one I’m taking is on goal setting. I have lots of aspirations for the next couple years. And really want to get to a place where I can work at home. Lots of hard work but I know it will pay off.
Well today is a chaotic day for me. Mentally. So currently I don’t speak to my father. He has never really been a father to me. I know he’s done the best he can but it still sucks. I’ve made the choice that instead of letting it and him poison my life I have stepped away to keep the negativity out of my life.
I’ve had a few other men I’m my life I have considered to be dads. The first was Mark. He was my fill in moms husband. He was a very strong presence in my life for a while. Unfortunately his addictions landed him in prison. Second was Les my moms husband of 25 years when she passed. We were never really close but I do love him. I will call him today.
Third is Bill. He is my ex husband Shauns dad. He has been my favorite person. He came to live with us in 2013. He met a wonderful woman Tammy. Eventually they bought a home and got married. Even tho Shaun and I are no longer together they are still very dear to me. I consider him a dad for sure. So a quick shout out to Bill. Happy Father’s Day. Love your face.
So this is a story about 2 girls trying to be cute. First of all meet marge. We both work in the office. Both for Katie. Marge also works for Wes. But usually it’s always the 2 of us there no matter what. We started out butting heads. We are both very different. Now we get along really well. She is a dear friend to me. So the one thing we have in common is shoe size and our love for cute comfy shoes.
So we both got to work at the same time. Rob dropped me off today cuz he needed the car. He walked me in and as he was walking back out marge had gone before him to get stuff from her car. All I heard was OMG are you ok. She had stepped wrong on a stone and went down on her hands and knees. By the time I got out there she was sitting with her legs straight out. After a few minutes Rob helped her up. She ripped the shoes off and said here you take them. She had flats In Her car. Now the shoes were hella cute so what did I do? Put them on of course. They felt very comfy and easy to walk in. Yay!!!!
So I wore them all the way til almost lunchtime. I came back behind the main desk where I work with a stack of papers in my hands. I was standing there talking to marge. Next thing I know I somehow stepped backwards into a crack in the floor and went straight backwards. I like to think it was very graceful. Almost did a backwards somersault but never dropped the papers. When I finally settled into the seated position with my legs out ( the same position I found marge in). All I could do is laugh hysterically. Marge was standing in the other side of the desk with her mouth open and laughing at the same time. Needless to say we both took Motrin to make it through the day. Tomorrow will be interesting. What happened to the shoes??? She took them home back to her daughter where they came from. LOL. They were referred to as the devil shoes for the rest of the day.
So We were outside visiting with my daughter and her friends. Right next to door I have a big plant. I glanced over and saw a little dragonfly just sitting on the top of the plant. I of course started talking to it. It is after all my spirit animal. Well this sweet thing just sat there staring at me. We had a little conversation and I put my finger out and she jumped on and let me hold her for a while. I kept talking to her in awe. So beautiful. She kept coming to me and sat with me numerous times on my finger. Rob also reached out and she sat on his too. It was such a beautiful and special moment. When a dragonfly sits on your finger it’s a sign of good luck. So very awesome. Life is full of precious memories like this. We just have to pay attention.
Today was my mom and her husband Les’ anniversary. When she died in 2011 it was 25 years they had been married. Today is also 9 months that me and Rob have been together. So happy 9 months love.
It seems there just isn’t enough time in the day to get stuff done. I always have so much to do and I always used to be so good at getting it all done. My goal this weekend is to accomplish stuff and get organized again. So I can get stuff I need to do done daily. I have so many things I want to accomplish. So with that being said…I’m ready to go.
I believe our loved ones can come back to send signs of their presence once they are gone. This happened to me the other day. I have a Fitbit. I was scrolling through the watch faces to select for free for a background. I came across a residual face from Mother’s Day. It had a saying on it with pink flowers 🌸 about your mom In Heaven. it caught my attention so I stopped and the date that was on this particular sample was February 21. That is my moms birthday. It struck me as if she were speaking to me. It was really cool. We were very close and I miss her a lot. I felt her presence and it was a comfort. I also have her dog missy. She became mine after my mom died. She is 13 years old now and has been acting strange for the past week or so. I think she is at the end and somehow the watch face was a sign that she would be gone soon. I wish I had the answers to all of these things. But I do know what my heart says. I feel she was telling me to be prepared for missy to pass on soon. Anyway. I wanted to share that
My sweet little brother. He was born 2 days before my moms birthday. Mostly what I remember about him as a baby is that he was sick a lot. He had a very weak immune system, and had to get shots of globulin regularly. He was also a definite mama’s boy. I was 4 when he was born. I have lots of memories of him a bit older but not too many of baby Brian.
Well this is 2 days of being very busy at work. Doing my evening chores now. After that I will be continuing on my business plans. Have a few different things in the works. The trick here is balance. I already have such a busy life it’s hard to make time for everything. The things I want to do are a big part of who I am and I want to be able to share that. Well enough talking about it. Time to make a plan and make it happen.
Today was definitely a Monday. Super busy and very productive. Also went to see my newest grand baby Josephine. One of my should have been mine girls had her on June 3. She is adorable. Picture to follow of course. When we got home our dear little big Kirk had put the kitten in the wrong rv. Lol. She tore up the chicken I had defrosting and had a small feast. Ewwwww. Luckily we salvaged enough to make delicious chicken souvlaki. (Greek food). Then my so. Tyler called me on FaceTime and I got to talk to him and my other granddaughter Irena. Pretty good day. Now time to do some chores and get ready to do it all again.
This is my name for my tarot business. Please let me know if it is something that interests you. You can contact me I. The comments or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m sorry for the silence. I’m still trying to balance all that I have going on. A lot has happened since I last posted. My sweet girl Grace graduated high school. My last one. I can’t believe the time has gone already. She leaves in like 3 weeks for the basic training. 😢. I will miss her terribly.
What is everyone doing today. We are having a small family bbq. It’s not raining right now so that’s good. Sitting on the porch with everyone enjoying the day…
Well it’s been a rainy Sunday here in Louisiana. It’s felt more lazy since tomorrow is a holiday. My poor samee (chihuahua) is terrified of thunder so he sits next to me and shakes the entire time it’s raining. On a serious note Yesterday was my sweet boy Matthew’s 20th birthday. I can’t believe it. He grown into such a wonderful man. I’m so proud of him. This next week I will continue to honor the people in my life, other than my kids, that mean a lot to me. Have a wonderful Sunday night. ⛈☔️
I went to preschool but the only thing I can remember is riding the cute yellow bus. Yeah ok fine the short bus. The bus driver would go over these enormous bumps, well they seemed enormous to me. I would bounce up and almost hit my head. I hated it. Kindergarten was great. I had 2 teachers. Both women. MrsShirbinsky and mrs Gardner. They were both great. Very sweet and loving teachers. I also used to ride home with a boy named Bobby Farmer. His parents were older I remember. I used to bite my nails and they would always tell me if I didn’t stop and fingernail tree would grow inside of me. What?!! Really. First grade I remember having a club under the stairs to the buildings that housed the first graders. It was the coolest thing to go under there and feel like we were something cool. I honestly don’t remember much else about first grade. Second grade was my first kiss. Keith Green. We kissed behind the art easel. I don’t remember too much else about those early days. But I don’t have bad memories from school then.
The moon signifies setting intentions (goals) for the month. That’s one thing I love about my practice. I get a fresh start every month. Things are constantly changing and the things that are important change as well. On New Year’s Day we all make resolutions for the year. The new moon gives us a chance to recommit to those things we want to change every single month. We can set smaller goals to reach the big ones we set out to achieve. Now is the time to check in and see how we are doing. Spend some time this weekend to look at where you are with your goals and maybe you can also do some intention setting.
Finally getting back in the swing of things at work. Now I have to find the balance again between work and home. Not enough time in the day for everything. Tonight however is a new moon. Time to set some intentions and figure it all out. Enjoy your week end
What can I say about this guy. He’s been such a great addition to my life. He has given me security and love that I’ve not known before. He makes me smile. We have created a beautiful life together and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Some things you may not know about him. He’s an Aquarius born on February 4. He’s an old soul in a young body. He’s the biggest sexiest nerd I’ve ever met lol. He’s been through a lot but somehow he can still love. I’m sooo lucky to have him. He’s supportive and protective and I look forward to spending forever with him. I love you.
Well both Rob and I have fit bits now. We bought the versa2. Love it. So now it’s time to get back in shape again.
Well its been raining here all morning. We lost power for 30 minutes. So now time to get busy before anything else happens. Tomorrow we start our get healthy journey. Rob got his Fitbit Thursday. My new one will be in tomorrow. I’ve been having some health stuff so it’s time to lose weight and get healthy again. I refuse to get old so I guess I better get it together. I hope you all have a great Sunday. Tomorrow I will start honoring the people in my life now that are important to me.
Well good morning good morning and good morning. I came home from chiropractor ate dinner and passed out. I woke up at 9 for a couple hours and passed out again. Woke up at 7 passed back out until 1030. Guess I needed sleep. Now just got to motivate myself to get out of bed. Wish me luck!!!
Yay it’s Friday! 15 minutes and I’m leaving work. Gotta go to the chiropractor and then home for a nice quiet weekend at home. Gonna try to get some projects done and caught up in chores. No big plans really. I am really in a happy place and I’m grateful for every single moment. So yeah next week I will spend some time sharing some of the people in my life I am most grateful for right now. Well have a great weekend and be safe.
There are pros and cons to small town living. Or should I say village living. Lol. Today I feel the pros. Everyday as I drive up to my little spot I feel a sense of relief I have never felt so strongly. Being out here is amazing. It’s so peaceful and so perfect. Even the people at the gas station and dollar general are pretty cool. I run into so many people I’ve known at different times in my life here in Louisiana. And of course you can’t beat Louisiana gas station food. Which I find is a dinner staple in our house.
Taking a quick break at work. Just got notice of Graces actual graduation ceremony. Saturday May 30. Yay!!! Gotta finish out the day and then the week is half over. Nice and warm this afternoon. I guess I’ll walk to the post office and courthouse. Need to get some steps in. Anyway woohoo. Gotta go!!!
I’m sitting here in my office and it’s sooooo quiet I can hear everything goin on outside and the small rustling of things inside. There is only one other person in the building besides me. It’s such a peace the silence. I encourage you if you have not to just sit in silence for 10 minutes. Feel what is happening around you and use all of your senses. Great way to clear your mind and restart your attitude.
Now on to my grandma. Gladys. She was a very stern woman and never really happy. She could cook but most of all she could bake. She was a woman of the home and didn’t work that I remember. Her and my step grandpa lived in a really nice mobile home park. They were typical grandparents. Her husband my grandpa Claude was very abusive to her and it turned her cold. My step grandpa was very gentle but he left. She then moved to a senior citizen home when her health got bad. She eventually had back surgery and couldn’t walk anymore. My mom moved her in with her in Texas. From there they moved to Las Vegas. Here my grandma passed away. She had 4 kids and one who died at birth. 2 boys and 2 girls. My grandma didn’t want any girls and didn’t like girls. She named her 2 boys Robert and james and dressed them as cut as can be. The girls were serilla sue and wilmetta Irene. They wore ragged out dresses and looked like orphans. It affected my mom as you will see.
It was a great weekend full of family and friends. Spent yesterday with my girl Grace and a few others. We ended the day with some swimming. My house is a wreck but it was worth it. I really love my life. To my kids. Thanks for being such awesome kids. Here’s a few more pictures
Just wanted to take a few minutes and honor my mom. She has been gone for 9 years this October. We lost her to small cell lung cancer. She beat it once but it came back with a vengeance and took her on October 26 2011. I still miss her terribly. She was a crazy ole lady. But she was always there for me. We talked everyday on the phone and she came and saw us every chance she got. We had a few rough spots in our relationship but the last year she was here we mended every thing. I’m sooo grateful for that. She will be missed for the rest of my days. But I cherish all the memories. I love you mom. Happy Mother’s Day.
I hope everyone has a great day. As a grandma I want to wish all my kids and their wives and the ones I’ve adopted along the way happy Mother’s Day. Quiana, Lexie, Adriana, Deandra, Amber and Claire. I love you all and thanks for the sweet babies.
Well my daughter just left. She came out here to see me and brought a gift for Mother’s Day. Actually a really cool gift. It’s a necklace shaped in a heart with a dolphin. And an amethyst. My moms birthstone is amethyst and she loved dolphins. It has a place to put in ashes. So now I have a piece of my mom close by. She has the actual urn with her ashes. It is a beautiful gift. And more so spending time with her was nice.
This was a rough week. Going back to work. Love arguments. Boss in a bad mood. Lots of civil disputes over children. Realizing my sweet grace is leaving soon. My baby…graduates😢. the week however ended on a positive note. Money and job worries are better. Best of all my estranged daughter is coming to our house in the morning to exchange Mother’s Day gifts. Not the kids but at least her. I’m beyond excited about that. We are spending time with Robs sister tomorrow for a bbq. Then Sunday my grace is coming to spend the day with me. Whew. That’s a lot. Anyway here are a few pics from the week.
Back at work full time and was it ever hard to do the morning thing again. Didn’t sleep well but I am here and glad to be back. I miss my home time tho. Well back to work. More shorter posts to come lol
So didn’t have a chance to do much celebration yesterday. Today we are going to do a few things though. Getting back to work was more tiring than I thought🥱
Today is the pagan holiday Beltane. I will keep y’all updated on the events of the day. It is a beautiful day.
Well it’s time to return to the office. Its been nice being at home but gotta make that money.
Well already Wednesday. Woke up last night to another bad storm. We actually did have a big limb fall. Close to our house and cars. Luckily it didn’t land on anything important. I have a lot of work to do today for my job. And I should be getting my shipment from Michigan bulb. Gonna be a super busy day for me.
I went for a walk on our property today. The last thing Rob said to me was watch out for snakes. Toward the end I actually saw one.
Rob hit it twice but couldn’t kill it. Danny said it would probably live so he took it out away from houses and let it go. Turns out it was just a king snake anyway.
Well our stay at home has been extended to May 15. 2 weeks more. Anyway I hung my hummingbird feeder yesterday and already have hummingbirds. That is super cool. Also my Wicca room is coming along. I love my tiny living. Let me share a few pictures.
Well it’s Monday again. This week brings Beltane on Friday. Possible opening up of the economy. But best of all another beautiful week to embrace life. Remember it’s the little things that we enjoy that give us joy…..like napping in the sun.
The man my grandma was married to while I was growing up and living there was Bob. He was the most gentle man I have ever met. He was my first father figure. He worked in a foundry in Lafayette Colorado. He always wore this cover that went over his clothes. Like overalls but fully body. I remember walking into his to his room once while he was changing. His legs were exposed and I freaked out and went and told my mom that grandpa had legs. I had never seen him out of his work clothes. He was a hard worker. He loved my grandma even though she was a very unhappy and miserable woman. They split up around 1989. Grandpa ended up marrying another woman after that. They were married for 2 years and she died. I got in touch with him in 1993 and we talked a few times. He was living alone in an rv and very sad and lonely. The beginning of 1994 I got a call that he had committed suicide. Such a sad thing. He was such a good man and to get that news was heartbreaking.
Well we made it through another week. The baby shower was awesome and the going away party was also a great time with good friends. Today I’ll post some pics of our renovation on one of our rvs. We are loving it. Also be patient as I continue my story it has been harder than I thought it would be.
Well today has started off with some drama. My boyfriend got verbally attacked by his step mom just a week after we attacked me. Not gonna let it bother us. We have a baby shower today for our new little adopted granddaughter Josephine. Then we are having a going away party for our boy Kirk. He’s moving to lake Charles. Soooo….. let the day begin and the negativity be gone.
OMG WTF we just tore out our kitchen table and benches. We were sitting in our big spacious rv living room when we got warning to take cover a tornado is in the area!!!!!? We grabbed animals and came over to robs dads house. For the first time in my history in Louisiana besides the flood of 2016 I am actually scared.
My grandparents played an important role in my early years. Let me start with my grandfather. Claude Willis. He was a severe alcoholic his whole life. I don’t know much about him and only met him once. A couple days after I was born. He was in the hospital dying of psoriasis of the liver. My mom wanted him to meet me before he passed. She hurried to get me there in time. We made it. He got to meet me and hold me. When we left we got down to the parking lot and before we could leave the hospital we were told he passed away. He literally held on to meet me before he went. I love that story. I’m honored for that privilege.
The next post will be about my moms mom dad and stepdad. The played an important role for me.
