Welcome Home

Mom, can I sleep at Grandma’s tonight ??

I heard in the car, this morning….

When I managed to turn around to see my child, it made

me go back to the past, with just one sentence…

She was no longer within my reach.

I travelled far….

When did time go by and make us adults full of boring priorities??

We fight every day, for something we’re not even sure we really want…

When in fact grandma’s house, is what everyone needs to be happy.

Grandma’s house, is where the hands of the clock take a vacation with us and the minutes unhurriedly, go by.

Grandma’s house is where a simple pasta and homemade bread seem to have different flavors, delicious…

Grandma’s house is where an innocent afternoon, can last for an eternity of games and fantasies.

Grandma’s house is where the cupboards hide old clothes and mysterious tools.

Grandma’s house is where the closed boxes become chests of secret treasures, ready to be unveiled.

Grandma’s house is where toys rarely come ready, they are invented on the spot.

Grandma’s house, is where everything is mysteriously possible, magic happens without worries..


Grandma’s house on the inside, is the address of our deepest affection, where EVERYTHING IS ALLOWED.

That luxury no longer belongs to me – unfortunately – it will live with me only in memories.

Even so, if I could place an order now…any order of all orders in the world, I would order the same thing…

I am so thankful for my Grandmama Fannie…I look forward to seeing her again someday. I am blessed with all of my memories of her and my time spent up on that magical farm in Wisconsin <3

Good bye Mz. Bella

You were loved and you were my friend…Thank you so much for all the joy you brought to our family <3 Blessings Dear Bella <3 You will be missed. RIP <3

Rudyard Kipling

“The Power of the Dog”

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie --
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find -- it's your own affair --
But . . . you've given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!)
When the spirit hat answered your every mood
Is gone -- wherever it goes -- for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept'em, the more do we grieve;

For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long --
So why in -- Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

Happy Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Sunday and Happy Halloween !!! Today’s prompt is Ghost/Pumpkin/Trick or Treat/Witch…and is very appropriate for this week. I’m going with, “Witch.” The song I’m playing today is Witchy Woman by Glenn Fry and Don Henley, The Eagles. Once again thank you Mr. Jim...Great for Halloween!!!

I’m going to tell you a quick little story that is near and dear to my heart. I knew Glenn Fry personally and I was so sad he was taken so very soon from us. He was an amazing musician and writer. When I met him he was playing the guitar and me being a really friendly person (I’m a people person, love to talk to complete stranger’s just b/c I like to hear their story) I’m really surprised I haven’t been killed by some coo coo bird sociopathic murderer yet 😉 But I just really love people, I digress back to meeting Glenn Fry…

When I met him, he was playing the guitar. I commented that he was a very good guitar player. He responded with, “I’m Glenn Fry…” I was only like 15 years old and he was what seemed to me to be a pretty old guy, but he was maybe 30 or something. He said again, “I’m Glenn Frey.” I nodded and said, “Is that suppose to mean something to me ?” Immediately after that, he started playing the song, “Take It Easy,” you know I’m running down the road, trying to loosen my load, I got 7 women on my mind…yadayadayadaya. Then it hit me and I smiled and I said, “Oh now I get it, your Glenn Frey w/the Eagles 🙂 ” I guess that didn’t impress me so much and he kind of liked that. I’ll never forget it… The guitar he was playing was just so beautiful. I was a piano player so I really got how good of a musician he was. I remember I thought that you’re just a regular person too. Just a guy and a guitar and he was pretty good at it. I see it totally different now, but when I watch his video’s on youtube he’s exactly how I remember him. I’m going to put up a short video of him. When I met him he was the hippy musician rather than the short hair, I’ve cleaned up my act person that he was at the end. I really don’t know which one I like better. It’s probably the same story we each have in our lives. Kind of the, “I know everything about life person and the other one who’s says my parents were a whole lot smarter than I gave them credit for 😉 “

Eagles’ Glenn Frey
Witchy Woman

Witchy Woman

EaglesRaven hair and ruby lips
Sparks fly from her fingertips
Echoed voices in the night
She’s a restless spirit on an endless flightWoo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eyeShe held me spellbound in the night
Dancing shadows and firelight
Crazy laughter in another room
And she drove herself to madness with a silver spoonWoo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eyeWell, I know you want a lover
Let me tell you, brother
She’s been sleeping in the devil’s bed
And there’s some rumours going round, someone’s underground
She can rock you in the night-time ’til your skin turns redWoo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eye

Well that’s my song for today, I hope you enjoyed my story and the music. I feel kind of sad right now as it brings me back to the day when the world didn’t seem so complicated and people were kinder. RIP my friend Mr. Glen. I’m sure your singing beautius songs w/the angel’s. Blessings to all the music lover’s and #SongLyricSunday Blogger’s. Happy Sunday Night <3 .

Happy Saturday

Well it was until it wasn’t…I was going to stick with SoCS/Stream of Consciousness Saturday until my day went south. Let me just warn you, if you don’t want to read about the election, covid 19, pro-life Catholic well I suggest you move on because this is America and not FB or Twitter where they obviously censor now, hello. Still going to link this on FB and see what they do.

Right now I’m watching another amazing rally with our great president, Donald Trump. I’ll be truthful the last election I voted for him but I wasn’t happy that was the Republican candidate, but I will not vote for Democrat/Pro Death i.e. Pro Choice. I’m sorry if that offends anyone but I told you to move on and you didn’t so I don’t care. I feel that I can say that as I was faced with that decision when I was a young 25 year old mother. We lost our second son, Sean Patrick to a neural tube defect. When I got pregnant with baby #3, they wanted to do all kind of test on me and these were the exact words of my OB doctor…”That way we can see in the baby is okay. If not then you can get an abortion if the baby is not viable. (OMG I thought I would faint) !!!! It’s also approved by the Catholic Church he went on to say.” Really, I wonder if God would approve that !! Sean Patrick was born alive, he got to be baptized and died shortly after that. We had a burial for him and laid him to rest with his Grandpapa Frain. Now we have an angel watching over us in heaven. Oh and the test he wanted to put me through could’ve possibly compromised a totally healthy pregnancy but that would be okay too I guess. I wonder if my daughter who is now 35 years old and my 3 granddaughter’s would think that was okay if I had rolled the dice with their life. Well I didn’t think it was okay at all. Always choose life b/c death is the only thing you can’t get out of. God is the Author of Life. Joe Biden thinks Choice is okay, I do not.

2. Covid19 and wearing a mask is on my last nerve, OMG. People wake up. You are not going to stop a virus wearing a mask. The Democrats think they can lock us away in our houses, close down business, ruin the economy, make us wear a stupid mask which does not stop the virus hello. Oh and the husband hasn’t been to work since March 13th !!! I wonder if that matters to the Democrats. I’m sure it doesn’t to that stupid Mayor Lightfoot who just locked the city down again. I won’t listen to the news anymore. You want to see what Covid19 looks like…

Guess what, I survived !!! The reason I survived is because God’s in charge, not a mask. Another reason I survived is because I live in America, the greatest country on this planet with an amazing healthcare system. Provided the Democrats don’t get their hands on it and ruin it with all their stupid regulations !!! Oh my mom is a retired Infection Control Nurse, my sister is a nurse and my daughter is a nurse so I think I get an informed opinion !!!

She works on the covid floor and guess what I give her hugs whenever I see her and maybe even a kiss <3 I’m not afraid but I’m really tired of all the lies and disinformation the media throws out there to scare us and try to control us. I absolutely am so done with this Democratic state !!! A woman had the nerve to tell me to wear a mask, that is what totally made me go off the rails and post this on my blog. If you want to wear a mask, wear one !!! If you don’t, don’t but leave me the hell alone. It’s my decision and this is America. I think this is almost like Germany and the mask is the marker. I’m not wearing one, not today, not ever !!!!

Open up the churches, let God back in our lives. This is so like the frog that jumps in a caldron of cool water and then they turn the burner on and before he knows it he’s cooked !!! That’s what I feel like is happening in this country. If anyone is responsible for this tragedy, it is the Democrat’s…Vote and vote for America and freedom. Let’s get our country back before they totally destroy it. President Donald Trump is the best president I have ever had the priveledge of voting for !!! A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for that horrible Commala Harris…Oh I’m sorry did I spell her name wrong or pronounce it wrong. She is a real piece of work. I thought Hillary was bad, but man is she is a political hack !!! I’m counting on God. He’s in control and let’s hope he doesn’t think we need to learn a lesson.

I’m done for now, and I really don’t feel much better but at least I said it and I’m not sorry for it. I’m going to let it go for now and just keep praying and having faith that God is watching us.


I love, love, love another challenge… I’m going to give it a go 🙂

” She fought back and she won <3 “

Masterpiece Monday

Just start…I suppose that is just what to do. Learning might look different for awhile, but it will get easier 😉 I hope. If you know me at all, I love font’s and color buttons. It just seems like it’s more original than just straight vanilla all the time. I think it’ll be more fun but at the same time maybe a bit wonky !!! I’m sure you know what I mean.

I’ve also been a bit distracted as one of our dog’s, Bella is not doing so well and that has been taking up a lot of my time. I know what’s ahead and I’m trying to make her as comfortable as possible. I’m her human and she can tell whenever I’m upset and that is not good for her so I have to play it very cool, which is not easy to do. She has been a great loyal friend to me for a very long time and I really love her.

My Sweet, Sweet Bella
Hanging outside with dad…

I think it turned out really nice. Happy Monday, Blessings Bloggers
