We have had a couple days of spring and a couple of days of summer. Suppose to be raining and cool again next week. The daffodils are drying up... and the other things haven't started to bloom yet.

I only have one of these.  Many years ago, J.C. Penney had an offer to order tulips and many other types of blooms.  I forgot what this is called.  I just call it pink flower.  I have this one and a little clump of the tiny purpel ones.  We had to do a lot of pruning last year and some of my things are not coming back yet. Still I have enough of things to bloom for a long time. Sometimes some of the old tulips will come back again. That's my thinking now... things that come back every year is my favorite flower


My little boy came to spend a couple of hours with me on Wednesday.  We had fun playing with all the toys he brought.  This baby was such a pleasure to keep.  Never cried once.  I wish he were smiling in this picture.  He has a beautiful smile. 

So that's what I've been up to lately. Going to a wedding shower for my next to the last Grandson and his bride to be.  I'm so glad GOD let me live to see these beautiul Great-Grands.  I love them all.  And just a little longer we will be getting baby Brinley.  Almost time for her to be born.  Life is Good!!

First Day of Spring

Even the weather people keep whispering about maybe more snow for us next week. I am praying "not". These poor flowers were already snowed on twice. And on the pretty days it was just sooo cold and windy. I'm surprised they look as good as they do.

Now don't look closely. You will see there are a lot of gum balls and pine cones and other trashy stuff that needs raking. That will be another day.

I do wonder

I have always wondered how Hitler was able to get most of his citizens to follow him. I read a book by Victor Klemperer who tried to keep up with everthing that HItler did leading up to the horror and the things afterward.The book is titled I bear witness.. it is a diary of the Nazi years. 1933-1941.

There were set before the people lots of new rules. Jews had to wear yellow stars on their clothes. The ones who were able got out of the country. Victor Klemperer was married to a German Woman. (Probably the only thing that saved him) Very interesting book. They cut his times to lecture. They made him put a red tile roof on the home his was building. All the newer houses had to have that type roof. (Reminds me of a large American experiment, when the government made us all get new tvs or had to buy a box to hook up to our tvs so we could get better reception and analog wouldn't be used anymore.) That worked very well. The German media only told the people the things the Goverment approved. Does this sound familiar?

I'm not going to go on with other things that have been done further leading our country into communist directions. I think I am seeing how these things happen. First they separate the people in the country. Make someone the scapegoat. Ellect a "dear leader" who the majority will follow and that person proceeds with his wicked plan and no one ever says "THIS IS NOT RIGHT".. It is not right that babies are being aborted every day. It is not right to take money from the people who worked and saved and give it to the others who did not. It is not right to make everyone buy insurance and have already planned that the aged will not get care and will often be offered "Mercy Killings" (hospice)

Congress and the courts stand by and let the president have his way. I think I am living in a time of history that is destined to repeat itself. And it will not be pretty. May GOD help us all!

Kameron's Visit

So Kameron came to visit the goats on Friday.  He enjoyed looking at all of them. He even reached over to touch him. They stayed awhile and I was able to enjoy playing with Kameron.  He really is a sweet, sweet baby.

Visitors from the North Pole

I have noticed that I've had serval visits from the north pole recently. I wonder who is checking me out. Hum, I think I'm being pretty good. Don't have many little children here any more... although I am expecting Matti again on Thursday. We have fun playing together. She really loves getting outside with Granddaddy and checking out the baby goats. I'm sure we will have to do that.
It is past time for Kameron to visit again. His grandmother will be keeping him next Friday while the men from her church have a hunting thingy and eating all kinds of wild things. My son who is the grandfather says he's sure she wouldn't mind if I went by over there that night and smooch on him some. They brought me the cutest pic of him smiling so big in his little overalls. I could eat him up.
And the big boys are down at the beach with their other grandmother. They love Myrtle Beach and the oldest can sing a song about Myrtle Beach. Probably by the time they get home again, the younger one will be singing it too.
Every thing doesn't work out as we think it should. One of my granddaughters had a miscarriage last week which made us very sad. That makes two little people who will be waiting on us when we get to heaven. GOD is in control and he makes no mistakes. You know I've always loved babies. We are expecting a new granddaughter in April and one of the Grandsons is getting married in April. The new little girl will be the two oldest boys little sister. Will told me he will be ready to stop after getting his girl. He said then his family will be complete just like mine, as I had two boys and one daughter. GOD is good!!
