He loves it and as you can see by the next picture so does Princess. Ok it put it on the top oh well on day I will get all of this stuff down.

Our Happy Boy!!

Everyone here is now well and good. We have manage to go almost two weeks without a vet visit and I for one am happy too.
I love this picture because you can see Bandi's smile. I love that. He warms my heart everyday one way or another. And to think that someone gave up the chance to have such a wonderful cat. If you can't till he is my pride and joy. Please don't tell my other two they might get their feelings hurt. lol
Hope that you have something in your life that warms your heart and puts a smile on your face.

Our India

Our black and white cat India had to be put to sleep today. He got so that he could hardly breath move or anything. We know that we did the right thing for him yet it is always so hard to do. I will post a better picture later but for now this will do. Him and his brother and sister that he loved so much.

hello again!

We are done with the third class and there is so much that we have read studied learned that I think that my head is on overload. Thursday is our first home visit and that is a bit scary. but should go well. We got a bunk bed for two hundred dollars and it is metal with a desk underneath. We think it is a good buy. anyway that is what is new.

CARRIE is coming!

I am so excited to have my dear friend Carrie for a visit. I had to share. So as with any visit deep cleaning is in order. We have been in midst of rearranging cupboards and the kitchen too. And my fridge is in need of a good cleaning. Terry and I keep leftovers with the best intentions but they just seem to be science projects around here. We need to get better about that. Our guest room is all ready and the cats have been testing the bed. They love it when I put clean sheets on the bed. My children are a little bit spoiled. I just hope that if I am blessed with two legged ones they are not. Will off I go to get busy! have a great day

You can not see the roots in this one but you can tell that it is coming up. Got this one Friday morning .


I don't know why but I think this picture is so cool. I was trying to take a picture of the tree coming out of the ground but as you can tell not quite there. This tree almost fell on our house we had strong winds and rain on Thursday and it pulled it up. SAD!! One hate to see a tree go and two they are so expensive to have cut down. Our front yard now looks so bare. Have to figure out something to put there. Hope that you all are safe and sound.

Happy Father's Day Dad!!

Today is a day that we are to remember our Dads. I thought of my all day today. Times that we shared. Adventures that we had. The last year though hard for my dad I think held some of the best times in it. Do you have a story that you want to share with me about your Dad?

I am floored!!

Did everyone hear about the hit and run guy? Will if you didn't I will tell you a little about it. This guy was crossing the street and was hit it looked like people saw it and everything and they did nothing. In fact one guy crossed the street and was within 2 feet of the man. Have we really become so cold that human beings are left on the road to die like an animal? I cried. Cars even slowed a little to look. Sad state of our ONE NATION UNDER GOD!! Hate to be those people trying to live with what they did not do.

She told me about him for about a min and goes my Mom will tell you more she had to play with him. She has wanted a dog forever. Oreo I guess kinda picked out her to be his owner he would go to her and they would take him home and he would come back to her. I am so glad that she got him I had to share it with you.

Fun Fun Fun

Hello there. What have you been up to? This week I sorta started a babysitting job. It is a 20 hour a week job and I love the little girl. So it does not feel like a job more fun. Terry has two days off this week so we are going to try and get the yard work done. Terry pulled a muscle in his back or something before I went to Minnesota and it is now getting back to what it was thank you yoga. So we have yet to get that done. Anyway. Oh and Jeanne is out of our house. It is a good thing I just hope that she makes it work on her sorta own. After eight or nine months it was about time.

Thanks God for Spring!!

I love when the birds play out in the yard even though we have three killer hahaha cats inside wanting to eat them. The grass just seems to be a brighter shade of green this year. Everything about Spring makes you thank God. And does anyone drive by a farm and not look at all the babies. As my sister Dawn would say MAKES ME HAPPY!!! Have a great day.

My Dad

Next Friday we bury my Dad. Gotta love North Dakota. Anyway some of my sisters are blaming and making the death an awful thing. Yes it is not fun to have him gone I miss him everyday. And cry a lot, however when he made the choice to stop that kidney thing I can not spell, He for the first time in years had control of something and felt like a man again. there was this peace that washed over him and he started to do things again that he enjoyed. Those card games and singing times are all special memories that I will have forever. I needed to write this because I was allowing them to put it into my head that if someone else would have been there he would still be alive. That is not true and oh just pray for that situation.

Hope that you all are having a great day the sun is out and I am in God's country again. I came up to maybe take my three year old niece home with me and to help my sisters out. This will be the second Sunday in a row that I have missed Church however sometimes I feel that I get more outta a song or watching God's handywork than from a sermon. Yesterday I was coming up and at sunset I was near a lake and I can not think of anything more gorgeous than a sunset over a lake. Puts a smile on my face and warms the heart. The only thing better would have been to enjoy it with Terry.

God gave us dogs as a practice for kids. All of you with one say AMEN!!! Today Annie our new one had some jealousy issues. She peed at my feet twice never went to the door or anything. I was watching Zoe and playing with her. She had been out a number of times. Made me so mad. So we put her into time out and told her naughty dog. Will my child ever learn? One day I may look back at this and laugh.

Prayer Request My Mom starts Chemo sp? in May again. thanks

Thought for the Day

When you forgive someone it is not for them so much as for yourself. I was reminded of that just today. Cause sometimes it is so hard to forgive. One of my wise sisters said to me that Jesus forgave you and said to forgive HOW MANY TIMES? In the hardest times in life there is bright spots. I need to start looking more for those. Here are some blessing I have to be thankful for God, a wonderful husband that not only loves me but accepts me for who I am , friends, my MOM, wonderful in-laws, cute nieces and nephews, trees and flowers. SMILES like that.

Today I am trying to remember that I am special. And that people can not take that away from me. Sometimes it is so hard too have that in the forefront of our minds. I wrote some of the things down and put them places where I am sure to see them. Try it. It helps. Hold your head up and take a moment to realize you are special to me.
