Puddle Jumpers

Does it ever seem that morning comes too early?? I did myself a favor last night (at my husband’s request) and unplugged the alarm clock I had mentioned a couple of posts back. We are finding it easier to set the alarm on our cell phones until we can make the trip to Walmart and purchase a plain alarm clock.…

Mom’s Soap Sack

This is the soap sack that I made for my Mom for Mother’s Day. I thought this was one of the most nifty ideas…it’s a drawstring bag perfect for little slivers of soap. You can actually lather through it and the drawstring is long enough to hang over the shower head! My Mom loved it! I’m grateful to Darlene who…

I’m a Southern Girl!

On being Southern…. My children and I have talked quite a bit lately on being Southern. It seems that we have been surrounded by negative comments about the South and the way that Southerners do things! So, today, I’m listing my favorite things about the South! Sweet Iced Tea on a front porch swing on a hot July afternoon. Fried…

Grits!

This is my sour dough starter after not having stirred it for a day. I just wanted to let you know that you should expect to see liquid settling on top. When this happens just stir it back down into the mixture. Yesterday, (giggle, giggle!), I found a recipe that looked really good for sour dough rolls. I was so…

Beware of Strangers!

This is the wreath from a couple of days back. It will take some time to dry and I know now about how much honeysuckle I will need. This wreath actually took a laundry basket full. I’m going to play with it a little more and I’ll let you know how things are going. *I’ve been asked, btw, if they…

Austin Phillip Arrives

This picture was taken during the recent storms here in Alabama by my daughter, Courtney. Always amazed by the night sky, Paul called her out to watch the lightning dancing in the distance. She couldn’t resist the opportunity to snap a quick picture while she had the chance. We have a new arrival to announce! Austin Phillip Lambert, son of…

SNAKE!

It’s been hard to get to the computer over the last few days. We’ve had so much going on….the days have gotten away from me before I’ve been able to write. This morning we’re saddened by the passing of our sweet little hamster, Snickers. Last night she apparently had injured her leg while climbing around her cage. We knew when…

Don’t Close Your Eyes

I thought you ladies might like this….this is what happens when you doze off on a Sunday afternoon in our home! Yes, Paul is under there…somewhere! : )

Our Little Visitor

We had this little visitor today. He stopped by to watch Courtney hang our laundry…I wanted to post this, so our regularly scheduled laundry pic will have to wait until tomorrow. I find God in so many things around me. I’m not someone who enjoys these things very close to me….definitely not in my home (ask me how I know)…..but,…
