beautiful letters/cards, championship sunday, the big games in the nfl, football talks, snowfalls during the night, where it doesn't feel cold, and the snow is calm and peaceful, nice relaxing sunday's, sweet blue sky and sunshine days during winter, Valentine's day messages/goodies/treasures, celebrating my mom's and dad's 46th wedding anniversary, the excitement of the countdown to halloween season, super wednesday post office adventures, Kentucky Derby day excitement, pickle making adventure, potato harvesting adventure, visiting the beach and collecting seashells and rocks, monster mash themed baking friday adventure, holding a seashell close to my ear, and hearing the ocean, seeing the water when the sun is shining on it creating a sparkle, super wednesday post office adventures, the fresh crisp winter air during late winter where it feels like Spring is coming, new experiences, social interaction, sunny sunday mornings, indoors gardening, wonderful simple pleasures, great shopping experiences, making eye contact, enjoying shopping, Christmas season 2010, walking outside on a sweet blue sky, and sunny day, and breathing in the fresh air, and thinking, "i am so very happy to be here! to have the chance to experience life", and smiling! :)
Enjoy the simple pleasures in life. They truely are, simply wonderful! :)
-never lose hope
i dedicate all of my pictures in my journal today, to my wonderful family and wonderful friends. :) i love you all bunches and bunches! :) You all inspire me to enjoy celebrating life, nature, and the seasons, each day to the fullest. :)
BAKING FRIDAY PICTURES, from start to finish :) Hi angel friends. :) pictures here on DS, are not uploading well. since last sunday, it's been very difficult uploading pictures. i knew that most likely, i wasn't gonna be able to upload pictures into my journal today, but i knew, i could at least upload them onto my onetruemedia page, and could make a baking friday collage with the pictures. :) i took many pictures today, that brings such a pure joy, for my family and i to be able to share, and i tried very hard today to upload pictures here on ds, but they just wouldn't all upload.  a few pictures did upload. i hope to be able to upload all of the new pictures soon. :) i know DS is currently working on the site, getting things working well again. i have a picture collage here, from onetruemedia, our baking friday adventure, from start, to finish. :) i'd love to continue to make these picture collages, until all is working well again. :)

Dearest Chris... OH WHAT FUN YOU ALL HAD!!! Absolutely LOVING the videos of the entire adventure!! Your cake turned out GREAT!! And everybody LOVES Rice Krispee Treats!!! Looks like you all had a lot of fun!!!

Love seeing the beautiful faces of Kayla and Taylynn!! They are both such pretty girlz and you can really see their faces with their hair tied back... Besides, I\'m sure they would not want that stick krispee treat marshmallow goo in their hair!!!

I had a very very long day today... Had to go to town late because the fog was SOOOOOOOOOO THICK!! Usually I would not care, but Guy reminded me that the deer would be spooked and the last thing I want to do is hit a deer again!! The last one caused almost $1000 damage!! Besides, my truck is so so pretty that I just want to keep her looking beautiful!!! Too many around cow country have no pride in what they are driving, and I simply don\'t want to be one of those people even if I do drive an old truck...

Guy put the basement door in today so NOW there will be no more PUPZ FALLING DOWN THERE!! I\'ll never know for sure how PaPoo ended up down there, but we are lucky she didn\'t break anything!!! Of course, I love it because it muffles the loud TV and computer games that are constant down there... LOL... Yep, it is a \"Man Cave\" for sure!!! Need to run the vacuum tomorrow, but the sawdust from trimming the door isn\'t going anywhere tonight... That would drive both my MOM and SISTOUR CRAZY having that on their floor... Oh, well... Never said I was a great housekeeper, and the long trip to town used all of my energy... Heck, I was lucky to make dinner! Of course, Guy fed the boyz so that saved some energy...

Love to you and Mom and Dad and Kayla and Taylynn and all of those angels who always pick up baking supplies!!! I hope you all have a great evening in CT!! I\'m sure your eyes are watching that winter storm coming your way... I hope it is not to severe, and I\'ll be sending positive energy that all goes smoothly!!! xoxoxo Cj

Good work around to the picture problem on ds! SOunds like you have been making great do you stay on a diet? You have great resolve :) HUGS Sylvia
