Happy October

I’m going to just get something up b/c I’ve been away for a bit…You know, time just goes by so fast. Can’t believe it’s almost that time of year.

The family Northwestern vs. Wisconsin

Tickets to the game !!!! Birthday present from the kid’s for grandpapa. Thank you so much. It was a perfect day. The game wouldn’t of been complete w/o breakfast at Walker Bros.

A couple of our girl’s <3…Breakfast at Walker Bros./Evanston, IL

The artist is still rocking out !!!

Monday’s Masterpiece…

Happy Monday and prayer’s and blessings to all impacted by the weather this past Friday. So sad to see all of the destruction and loss of life. It really does put much into perspective, especially at this time of year.

On the lighter side of today, we should all just count our blessings and be grateful for all that we have. On Father’s Day of this year our neighborhood was too hit by a tornado so it reminded me of how fragile life is…

I was just looking on Amazon to get some ideas for my Christmas list. I have to admit, I’m more of a Happy New Year person. I really don’t know why, but I do love the new year. Probably b/c I’m a planner girl and I don’t really get a plan until like now which is a little late. It’s still a great time of year though.

I came across one of the husband’s painting’s that I absolutely love, love, love <3 , so I thought I would post it for Monday’s Masterpiece…It’s Santa and his Christmas Mouse, Winston..

The Husband

I am alway thankful and grateful when I wake up and see that face next to me…You’re still the one I want to talk to in bed, you’re still the one that turns my head, we’re still having fun and your still the one <3 …

Oh yes and one last thing I’m always thankful for a night out at the baseball game with the family !!!! You can’t beat fun out at the old ballpark…That’s where it all started 😉 Chicago White Sox vs. the Milwaukee Brewers at the old Comiskey Park in Chicago on July 16, 1976 !!!

He came out from Virginia and took us to the Ballpark on Friday Night…Surprise, Gotta love a son who takes such good care of his mom & dad. We had a blast and they won !!!! Y A Y Thank you Matthew <3 We love you <3 …

Inspiration #118/Hallelujah

Just going through the Reader and came across this prompt from Mr. Jim . When I got up this morning, I’m always thankful for another day, I took the husband to the train…I do wish they would get that bus running again. He use to take it b/c it stopped right in front of the house and I could sleep in. I do like doing whatever and sleeping in, but I don’t mind that much driving him to the train because I get to be with my guy. He always looks so handsome when he’s off to work and he gives me such a nice kiss. Okay, I digress and let’s get back to the prompt, “Inspiration”.

This morning for some reason he just started singing one of our favorite songs, “Hallelujah.” This song truly is a song that embodies the word inspiration. He loves it as do I <3 . When we sing it, I always sing harmony and he does the melody. We are pretty geeky, but who cares 😉 . We are just happy to get all the song lyrics right, this one we know by heart <3 .

Hallelujah

The story behind this song is truly inspirational … They even wrote a book about this song and story behind it. The talent comes from Mr. Leonard Cohen..

My husband, the artist, sketched this out for me. He put this on my desk, where I sit every morning and said to me, “Write !!! You have stories to tell that people would love to read <3 ” It still sitting there, looking back at me. I still need to write. I do have stories to tell. So many, I really need to just write!!

I just don’t want to write about them on-line, I’m from a different generation 😉 . I write in an 80 page, composition notebook til it’s done and then I get another 80 page notebook and start to fill that one up. I guess I don’t want to be around when people read my story. I’m not ashamed of what I wrote, it’s just my story. That’s what writer’s do, they write. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes not so much but I’m the writer so I get to tell the story 😉 . Actually I hope they like it, get inspired from my tales, laugh about my life, and say yes that is definitely my mom <3 . I hope they can feel my presence when they read about my travels through my life. When I read letters from my mom in her handwriting, I know it’s my mom and feel her because I know that’s her handwriting. That’s probably why I write it down, you can see and feel someone through their handwriting…

I’ll close it out for now b/c I have to go cook dinner. It’s breakfast for dinner tonight <3 and it’s time to go…Blessings blogger’s, I’ll leave with one question. “What inspires you?” Blessings and it’s almost Friday… Y A Y <3

Two for Tuesday…

Happy Tuesday, blogger’s…It’s always a little harder getting going after a 3 day weekend but I’m up and starting the day. After the 4th a sense of urgency comes on and I feel like, “Summer’s over Mr. Nightlinger 😉 .”

The Artist was busy painting this weekend. I’m really enjoying these past oil paintings. I have already have a spot for them in our home. Don’t worry if you like them, they are on our Amazon Handmade acct. for purchase (at least the pair is) . I still have to load, “Storm Front”.

Also getting busy on my planner/planner area. I’m not even going to post until I’ve got that under control b/c quite frankly it looks like a hot mess…No bother though, I’ll get it together and it will be beautius for sure <3

Since it’s 2/2 Tuesday I thought I’d put up a couple of songs…The first one always makes me smile because I remember times from years gone by where this song makes me feel this way, only I’m not living in their radio probably just their head 😉 and it’s rent free 😉 …

How do you like me now/Toby Keith <3

It’s going to be a busy week b/c I only have 4 days to work with…Appts., houseclean, menu plan & groceries, Target run of course, yadayadayadayda…I’ve also got so behind in my, “10 Year Journal” I’m determined to get caught up on it !!! Oh and I’ve got to fit a mani/pedi in there somewhere, ahhhhh 😉 . I know, I’m spoiled. It’s the husband’s fault. He’s a great guy <3 and I love him to pieces <3

My second choice for my song today is, “Perfect”. The husband and me always give each other songs and he gave me this one. He said it reminds him of us b/c we were just kids when we met and fell into forever with each other (he was 20 and I was 16 😉 ), 42nd wedding anniversary this year… Together 45 years, OMG <3 .

“Perfect” Andrea Bocelli & Ed Sheehan <3

Have a great week and get busy…Summer’s over Mr. Jebediah Nightlinger 😉 …

p.s We use to do Community Theatre every summer and I came across this picture of one of the shows we did…How did you think the kiddos became professional dancer’s, singer’s, musicians ??? It wasn’t by accident, Mom and Dad had a little something to do with it. Uber talented family, started with my mom 😉 and everyone has the DNA…I was a piano player and the husband is the Artist (not his day job, OMG starving artist, I don’t think so 😉 ) …Even though they all took a different direction, they were amazing on stage performing, of course I may be a bit prejudice. 😉 …

Monday’s Masterpiece

Good Monday morning <3 Hoping everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July…The Artist and me had a wonderful weekend…Road Trip out to our fav places from back in the day 😉

Then on Sunday the 4th was a chill kind of day w/the Artist painting and me planning…Love, love, love to plan. Today will just be a reset kind of day where we keep wondering what day it is 😉 Does that happen to anyone else on these 3 day weekends ???

The other painting he just started yesterday, but I’m thinking it’s going to be a fav of mine !!! Don’t forget you can visit our Handmade by Amazon site and purchase any of his amazing artwork…Just follow the link <3

The weekend started out really great with me and the granddaughter getting our hair done, Chic Filet for lunch and then of course Starbucks to top off the fun day…

So much fun at the salon…Shout out to our forever beauty stylist…Mz. Lisa <3 Thank you so much for making us beautiful again <3 . Oh and I can’t forget the flower’s my wonderful husband bought for me <3 .

Back to business this week, a lot of irons in the fire. Starting a major remodel on the home but then by the end of this year it will all be done. I will update with pics of our beautius home. Let’s enjoy the rest of the summer. Busy, busy month w/birthday’s, anniversary (42nd <3 ) and vacation to New Smyrna Beach, Florida Y A Y !!!! Blessings Blogger’s on your Monday <3 … 😉

Write Anything Wednesday…Elan Creations/Contest Update

Hello Blogger’s…I don’t know where the time goes. I definitely need a plan, schedule, or anything that remotely looks like a, “TO DO/TODAY LIST”. I Think I need to blame it on the hus b/c for Father’s Day I updated him to the 21st century with his little techno gadgets, i.e. a new IPhone 11 and a new Apple Watch. Well OMG what a nightmare, but I digress. We got the new phone activated and now we are working on the watch !!! He really looks very cool with all of the stuff 😉 .

Happy Father’s Day

You definitely deserve it and you wear it well !!! It looks great on you <3 We love you dad <3
