Life After the Lottery......

Now that we are filthy rich....I'm learning to live like "the other half".....which of course is me now!! **snort** Because I'm still sooooo down to earth......I thought I might show you a glimpse of how one's life changes!! Please.......enjoy....but please.......don't envy!!



First to change....I can no longer take the time to type these posts myself!!
I've hired an assistant for that!!


I've found that I spend alot of time outdoors....
just riding around on my new lexus!!




Sometimes....I get tired from just lugging around all the winnings
and just simply need to relax beside our newly installed pool!!
(note to self.....get a pool boy!!)


So.....there you go!! That's how my life of leisure is now!! Yep!! Life is good!! Hope yours' is too!!

If you need me.......I'll be out back.....they are installing the private helicopter pad today!! What.....I can't be expected to take a car to Walmart anymore can I???

Toodles!!

Giggles and Snorts!!

Guess what!!! Go on!! Guess!! Oh never mind.....you'll never guess right!!
Rick hit the lottery at work!! Giggles and snorts!! We're rich.....split 42 ways!! LOL!! It's all been a hoot and we are really having fun with it!! We'll probably end up with $1.99 after taxes but what a fun ride we're having with it!!

Until next time.....I'll be on my yacht!!
giggles and snorts!!

Have a great Wednesday!!

Oh My!!!

I hope you all got a chance to go to The Settler's Fare and the Gathered Treasures shows yesterday!! Oh my goodness....they were both amazing!! The crowds were large and it appeared as though the buyers were out!! :O)

Great job vendors...... your offerings were great...very unique....amazingly prim!! Great job organizers...so well put together....you did a great job combining great vendors with a great lay-out!! And actually great job attendees......everyone (or most......I only had to slap a few gals down.....in my mind of course :O)) was very cordial for such large crowds!!

We had a great time.....and bought a few treasures as well!! We got to meet a few fellow creators although with the pact house not as many as we would have liked!! It was just a great day!!

Hope you had an equally wonderful one!! :O) Happy new week!!

Welcome to Our Home......

Our kitchen.......









This is my grandpa's cracker can.....every morning he ate saltine crackers w/ butter and jelly!! :O)




This is one of the treasures we got over the weekend. It was originally in the farmhouse when my father in law bought the farm!! It has all of the "inner workings" and is in mint condition!! LOVE IT!!!!


See the crocks in my new/old cabinet.....




An old piece of wooden spouting that we salvaged many years ago......




A door from my aunt's home.....



Come back again!! You're always welcome....especially if you cook and clean and do laundry while you visit!!! :O)

18 Vessels of Love

I survived the party!! The guys had a marvelous time!! They are planning the next one already!! :O) I'm glad it will be warm enough to banish them to the tent!! LOL!!


**********

My husband grew up on a farm which his brother now owns. On Sunday, my b-i-l invited us over to dig through the barn!! (did you hear the angels singing?????) This is some of what we came home with......


Unfortunately.......several had been painted a loverly baby blue......


.......Fortunately.....I have a wonderful hubby who scraped them clean!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the reveal of my kitchen and dining room renovations..... complete with the cleaned up crocks and the other goodies we found!! You won't want to miss it.....I promise!! :O)

Until then......have a wonderful Thursday!!

Answered Prayers

I've been praying lately.........for my uterus to fall out!!

My Father Almighty answered........my brain fell out instead!!
If I can't remember why I came into a room now at 40........how in the heck am I gonna avoid being the slobbering one in a diaper at 50?

Have a great day.....umm......what day is it???? :O)

Tweety's Twitterpated!!

Yes!! Apparently my yard is the hottest hook-up joint around........for birds!!
Each morning about 4am the birds start fluffing their feathers......shining their beaks......and preparing their most wonderful, "hey baby" chirps!! It takes hours upon hours.....apparently saying, "If you were a new sandwich at McDonalds, you'd be called the McGorgeous." is really a conversation starter for ol' Tweety!!

I guess it could be worse!! I guess I could be running a dating service for skunks!!

Oh well.......I'm off to look up what, "skwack!! Caw-caw squawk!!" means!! I don't want to be running an obscene bird dating service!! Hope you're hump day is the best yet!! :O)

"Not Malignant"

Since January, I've been dealing with some weird "female issues" and recently had to have a biopsy to rule out the possibility of a cancer. You know.....that's a scary word!! Malignancy!! Yikes!! I wasn't extremely scared!! I kept saying (and most of the time truly believed) even worse case scenario I was fine with it!! God would carry me through!! Even so......I gotta say.....those are gorgeous words!! "No malignancy found"!! Thank You Father!!

The problem now......what the heck am I gonna blame for being a total nut case??????? Oh well.....I'm sure I'll come up with something!! :O)

Have a great mid-week!! Remember to stop and smell the dandelions!!
