Windy Monday

Wow, we had a bit of a wind storm with heavy rain around 1.30 am. My home shook and shook and the sound of the heavy rain hitting the roof made the dogs a bit nervous.

Once the storm passed we all went back to sleep. We woke up to cooler temps and the wind blew most of the day. The temps did reach up to 60 but it still felt cool to me.

I spent my morning just relaxing. I did do a few chores and my afternoon was spent visiting with a good friend Dorothy who stopped by to chat. We had tea and wonderful fellowship.

I spent the evening watching TV and just relaxing.

Another wonderful Sunday

Another wonderful service at church and then it was on to lunch at my favorite place. Yep Chinese!! Then a dreaded trip to Wal-mart. Wow $112! Ughhh … More and more i get to where i dread going there. Prices of diesel, food and everything is on the rise yet my income stays the same?

Arrived home in time to put away the few things i got for that much money. Shampoo, conditioner, laundry soap, food items and so on.

Then it was time for Chapel service and it was nice. Visited a bit afterwards, then it was back home to finally rest for the day.

A Sad Day, Yet A Day of Friendships


The carports are coming along nicely. As you can see .. yes 2 dedicated workers on their day off.



I got up this morning and said good bye to several of the RVer’s. Benny and Carol were the first to leave. We are both sad to see them go. They are an amazing couple and the guys hit it off and so did we ladies. We have really been blessed to have made such wonderful friendships this year. See how lonely it is behind us?


Bud and Pam finally got the wiring fixed on their rig and around 11 am they pulled out. They were the last to leave. It was hard saying good bye to another couple that are very special to us. Another lonely place with their motor home gone.


The rest of my day was spent visiting here and there with the other rver’s.

We were invited to dinner at Audrey's who is a worker here at the home. She invited Rudy, Elaine, Andrew, Bill and Pauline as well. Ms Audrey is an amazing cook and we had a delicious Mexican meal. It was so good and wonderful fellowship.


It’s been a nice day, no sunshine but the temps have been good. See my door is open again today!!


This AJ, Ms. Audrey’s puppy. He was waiting to greet us. He is such a cutie.

Later on it was more fellowship and finally around 8.30 pm we got home. It’s been a sad day saying good bye to blessed friends we love, yet a great day in enjoying the fellowship of others we love.

Hope you all had a blessed day

Appreciation lunch

Today was an appreciation lunch for the volunteers. Several are leaving tomorrow. We went to Sam’s and it was so delicious and their black berry cobbler was amazing. Lots of great fellowship.

Harry and Martha do a tremendous job in running the home. It’s amazing all they do. If they were to leave it would take 4 qualified people to do the job that these 2 do together. They are a wonderful blessing to hundreds.


Jeb and Vanessa, Jeb is the maintenance supervisor and he is such an awesome person. His heart is in this home. His wife Vanessa is such a loving person. Jeb is a blessing to the home.

Pleasant Hills Children`s Home 008

Paul and Annetta are volunteers year round and have been at the home for 6 1/2 years. What a dedication. They are such dear friends of ours and their both amazing witnesses for our Lord and Savior. The home is blessed to have such dedicated volunteers. We are honored to call them family.

This is Mrs. Mary and her birthday is this weekend and Carol (Benny’s better half) got her a gift. Mrs. Mary is a wonderful cook and she runs the kitchen. God gives her so much strength to feed and clean up after all she does at the home. She is a wonderful blessing to the home and a very dedicated worker. I have never seen this lady without a smile and she is always in a cheerful mood.

Pleasant Hills Children`s Home 013

I love these 2 pictures. The guys being dedicated by helping Mrs. Mary in the kitchen. Who would imagine that 2 welders would work together at this job as well.

Pleasant Hills Children`s Home 014

Of course as you can see they needed a supervisor and Dorothy did as good as she could keeping these 2 in line. As you can see Benny is just as much of a ummm .. maybe i better not say it. I will just say Benny and Lenny were 2 of kind and Benny will be missed so much!!

Tonight was game night and it was a wonderful night for fellowship. Although i had a bit of guilt as i had prayed for Bud and Pam not to leave until in the morning. They decided to get on the road after our lunch and broke down at the entrance. They had some type of wiring problem with their toad. They ended up coming back and they made it to game night after all. I was happy they did but i felt so bad they had trouble.

It was a wonderful day and tomorrow is going to be such a sad time when dear friends leave to go home.

Special guest tonight were Harry, Martha and their family


Benny sang and he has an awesome voice. I could of listened to him sing for hours. What an amazing talent God has given Benny and he uses it to praise our Lord and Savior.


It’s been an amazing week so far and i hate to see it come to end as several of the RVer’s are pulling out to head home. It’s always a sad time when you have to say good bye to wonderful friends you have made throughout the past few weeks.

Amazing Sunday

Today we went to church at Evangelist Temple. It’s a non domination church. Bro Barry Roberts is the pastor but today Jason Harris spoke. It was an awesome service. Scriptures today was Matthew 7:15-23

We went out to lunch with the RVer’s at Ryan’s. Although we were late arriving at service lasted until 12.40 pm!

Then a trip to Wal-mart was needed and we got home in time to get a quick nap before Chapel service at 5 pm. Brother Harry gave the message tonight and it was another awesome message. What a way to end a wonderful day.

What was left of the evening was spent watching tv and enjoying each others company.

Relaxing Saturday

After a late night last night a needed day of sleeping in was on the menu. Then we spent the rest of our morning just relaxing.


We were invited to lunch at our RV friends Rudy & Elaine’s camper. I made a salad to take. We had a wonderful lunch outside. They carried their table and chairs outside. It was a beautiful day for lunch outside. We had spaghetti, bread and salad with a delicious chocolate chip cake and ice cream for dessert. Wonderful fellowship.


I hadn’t taken any pictures of the new carport that is going up so after a wonderful afternoon i slipped over and got a picture of the work that was done this week. I also took a picture of our comfy home. See how nice it is today .. i have been able to open my door all week long!!

We have had beautiful temps all week long. I pray that this nice weather continues.

Bay of the Holy Spirit Revival

Today i got up and went to crafts with the ladies. Every other Friday the ladies have craft day and the other Friday is outing day. I worked on embroidering the baby quilt i have been working on for ever!

We went to an awesome revival. It’s called Bay of the Holy Spirit Revival. Nathan Morris was the evangelist. John Kilpatrick was a speaker as well. It was an awesome experience. I had never been to a revival like it.

Here is a link for anyone who is interested in attending one of their revival’s in their area.


We got home at 1 am!

Unwanted Visitor

I had a visitor this morning! A Moe came calling. It has been making a mess in the yard out front of the camper. I let Lexi go in hopes that she would catch it. But, she didn’t.


I snapped some pictures of the guys riding around on the trailer from inside my home.

Bath Day

I didn’t sleep good last night. Yep .. my back hurt most of the night from over doing it yesterday. Too much cleaning and so part of the morning was spent relaxing and trying to get the back pain to let up.


Once the pain let up, i decided to give the dogs a bath. They are not happy campers to get their bath but they tolerate a bath so that they can stay inside.

100_4772 100_4773

One dog picture is missing as Dixie wouldn’t stay sitting long enough to get her picture taken. She wanted to go rub on the cover. I think i had as much water on the floor as i did the dogs. Esp Lexi (below) she has long legs and doesn’t fit in the sink too well. Normally i bath her in the shower. I decided to try the sink on her as it’s easier on the back.


The morning was kind of cloudy but this afternoon has been another beautiful day here. Look at what the temp is at almost 4 pm. Yep, i spent my afternoon sitting outside enjoying the sunshine.


I am so enjoying this weather and look forward to many more days like this. 70’s is perfect weather for me.

Happy Valentines Day!!!!

A special Valentines Day wish goes out to Grandma’s Princess and Tobe man. I love you both very much!!

I’d like to wish you all a Happy Valentines Day! I am happily married to my wonderful valentine. My hubby is wonderful and I am so thankful for him. We don’t do gifts but hubby usually comes up with something that i always love from his heart. To me that is better then any gift he could buy me.

I spent my day cleaning and doing laundry. Our poor home hasn’t had a major cleaning in sometime and it was needed. It’s another beautiful day with temps in the 70’s.

Fairfax, TX 013

After dinner hubby succeeded at giving me a great gift. He gave me a needed and wonderful back and neck massage. After all that hard work today i needed it and it wasn’t long before i was ready for bed after being so relaxed.

I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day!
