Birthdays and Anniversaries

Cricket turned 9 months on November 2 she has finally started jumping and lets just say I feel her power when the ground shakes beneath me.

Our daughter Jeanelle thinks she is about 135#s I am thinking 120#s. Either way this is one big girl. Hopefully this week we can get a weight on her.

She had a training session at the park with people playing basketball, kids playing soccer, Tennis lessons going on and lots of people walking and running and nothing seemed to bother her. That was a lot of distractions and the trainer and I were both surprised she did so well.

Hopefully I can get some new pics this week.

Our wedding anniversary is today and its been 42 years. We have lived in the same house for almost 42 years its crazy when I think about it.

This week we got to put a new upstairs unit in for our central ac and heat that was $4500.00. I am very grateful we had the cash to pay for this. We did not have to replace the outside unit thank goodness that would have been another $5000.00.

I guess this was our anniversary present to each other.

There is 24 acres behind us and the far 12 acres is for sale and is pending sale for $660,000.00.

A cousins house down the road is for sale for $465,000.00 it is on 4.65 acres.

This area is very hot in the real estate market right now which is a good thing if we decide to sell.

Life is GOOD we are very blessed and thankful.

My Heart Cath.

I have been tested so much lately it’s unreal.

The carotid artery scan last week the results were great.

I had my heart Cath on Wednesday of this week and the best thing happened to me.

My arteries are that of an 18-year-old. There were no blockages or partial blockages my arteries are perfect.

I contribute this to a change in our diets 26 years ago when my father n law had a heart attack. I made the decision at that time to stop frying so many foods and now we maybe have something fried 2 x a month.

I have young arteries and even though I will be doing heart valve replacement very soon this is such a blessing.

 

Happy Thanksgiving

Today we give thanks.

I am grateful for my husband, our home, and our family that chooses to be in our lives.

I am grateful to our close friends.

As you get older you will notice your inner circle gets smaller but those in it are more special than ever.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone please stay safe on the roads and have a great weekend.

April Showers

April is one of my favorite months it is when the temperatures get warmer and everything comes back to life again.

This month has showered our family with a lot of great news.

First -our granddaughter Preslie will be a freshman in High School next school year and she made the Varsity High School cheerleader squad. She has been doing competition cheer for a few years now and happens to be quite good at cheer. She was our first grandchild and is very special to us. We are so proud of her and everything she has accomplished in her life.

Second – our youngest daughter Jeanelle who is 30 years old and her husband David bought a house on 4 acres about 12 minutes from us. They will be signing papers this coming Friday. They have kept this a secret from the four children so Friday will be full of surprises for everyone. Children need wide open spaces to explore and trees to climb. This house even has a pond that currently has a lot of turtles in it. The children will love having a barn filled with animals that will include baby dairy goats that are getting picked up next week. They will get to milk goats, raise animals and learn the responsibility that comes along with it. They already garden with their mom but now but they will be able to do it on a much larger scale. This is their dream home and they have waited a long time to find the perfect home for their family. We are so happy for them all.

Third – our son in law David just got a promotion at work he is now a senior inspector. He does not like to brag about things but we are very proud of him.

Fourth – our youngest son Jeremy who is 25 1/2- years old is a United States Marine he just found out he will be promoted to Seargent on May 1st. He has been a Marine for 5 1/2- years. When your son grows up and wants to become a Marine it is one of those Ahh Haa moments parents have to go through but we are very proud of him and all his accomplishments.

Fifth -Daisy had her 4th birthday and she has been asked to be a large dog model for a local dog clothing company. She will be doing pictures for that very soon and I will gladly post the pictures. She makes me smile every day I am so glad she is a part of our lives even though she is a bed hog. We are very proud of Daisy.

I only share the news that people shared with us directly.

This month has proved to me what April showers are all about.

Jeanelle, David, Andrew, Karina, Sophia, Adrian, Jeremy, Preslie, and Daisy thank you all so much for being a part of our lives. We love you all very much.
