Good Mornin' Yall,

I hope everyone had a great Tuesday and ready to start a new day. It is currently 55 degrees and it feels like 53 degrees. The winds are out of the South at 9mph. Yesterday was a nice day and it got up into the 60's. But it sure was windy tho. I was going up to the Dollar General Store yesterday afternoon to buy me some coffee, and when I opened up my front door, I could see sand everywhere. Looking outside of town here in 2 different directions, you couldn't see nothing but sand. I don't understand how it could be that sandy with all the rains we have had recently. We were under a Wind Advisory until 7:00p.m. last night tho. I think it is going to be another windy day today and on the warm side as well.

I would like to "THANK" each and everyone of you that has dropped by the last couple of days and left me Anniversary and Birthday wishes. Also, the ones that sent cards thru emails and the ones in snail mail. I do appreciate each and everyone of them so very much and for you all thinking of me on those special days. I was down on Monday since my DH wasn't here with me, but I made it thru the day. Again, "THANK YOU" all so very much and you will never know how much I appreciated the cards and comments.

My DH made it home last night around 11:20p.m. I was laying down but hadn't gone to sleep yet. He called to let me know he was fixing to come up to the front door. I got up and let him in. We sat up talking and watching t.v. I didn't go back to bed until after 2:00a.m. this morning, and I just got up at 5:45a.m. So, I haven't had much sleep. I do have me some coffee tho. I will go back to bed for a while after I take the girls to School later on. I have to tell yall, last night me and my DH was sitting up watching Bill Engvall. It was on the Comedy Central Station and it came on at 1:00a.m. It was Bill's latest show that was taped in 2007. Both of us has always enjoyed watching the Blue Collar Comedy shows, but Bill and Larry the Cable Guy is our 2 favorites out of the 4 of them. Anyway, Bill was talking about him flying with some Armed Forces Team and he was going up in an F-16. He was talking about being cool. He came to the part about telling when the F-16 went upside down and it was so funny yall. I was laughing so hard that I had tears in my eyes. When it went to an advertisement, my DH said he had a visual. LOL. Now let me tell yall here, when I used to go out on the road with my DH, I would always try to tell him how to drive. LOL. Yeap, I'm a big back and front seat driver. LOL. Anyway, my DH said that he could just see me now in one of those F-16's. My DH said he had a visual of the Pilot ejecting himself and then telling everyone he had to get out of there because I was trying to tell him how to drive the F-16. ROFLMBO. He said I could have the F-16 and I could fly it myself. ROFLMBO. Yall, my DH had me in tears almost from all the laughing we were both doing. But we had a good time and he is always saying or doing something to make me laugh. I do love that man dearly. You just had to be watching the show and be here to hear my DH telling it. That was the highlight of my night.

Well, guess I'll go for now and try to visit a bit. I am having my morning coffee. I didn't get to visit yesterday morning because since I didn't have any coffee to drink, I started getting one of my bad headaches and when I took the girls to School, I came home and went back to bed. I did fix me a pot of coffee yesterday afternoon tho. I started visiting yesterday afternoon and done some last night. Since I will be going back to bed after while, it maybe the same way about visiting everyone today as well. I'll do my best to get around to you tho. Take care my friends and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

In a round about way (as it usually happens) I stumbled on your blog and am glad I did.
I enjoyed it and read a far jag of it. We Canadians have always considered the folks from the northern states as "Honorary Canadians"

I'm finishing off my first pot of coffee, so I'll probably make another one soon.

I've got a big pot of pinto beans cooking. I've been craving them so I made enough to do for a while, LOL! I plan to make refried beans out of some of them anyway.

Hope you got some rest and had a good visit with hubby while he was home.

Love and hugs,


bj said...

Hi, Karen....I am sorry you are having trouble with the headaches again. Have you seen a doctor about them? Maybe he could give you something to help prevent them. Bless your heart...headaches are the worst!
Take care, my friend,

I hope that your headache is better today Karen. I have given up spring cleaning for awhile and started some sewing projects that I had lined up.

The weather is turning colder and windy here as well. At least we don't have any wind warnings here.

Take care. God bless.

Mountain Mama said...

It's so nice to hear how you and your DH have such a good time together. Many marriages all we hear are complaints and miseries. Your blog is refreshing and I hope a lot of wives/husbands will learn from it.
Joyful marriages don't just happen, you have to work at it and it seems to me tha tyou and DDH have done it right.
We are having typical spring weather here, I took the trash to the curb while it was sprinkling, then I put blood meal on my tulips to keep the deer away from them. While I was outside, it rained, and sunshined. I came in when it began snowing. LOL! It was just a small sprinkling of snow, but it made me psychologically shiver!
Take care.

Mountain Mama said...

OOPS!!! I forgot to wish you a Happy Birthday and a wonderful year.

Love Bears All Things said...

Good afternoon, Karen.
What is that annoucement I hear every time I log on to your site?

My Honey Bear has just returned from a business trip and I am getting off the computer. I hope you're feeling better.
I've tagged you.

Denise said...

Laughter,, it keeps sadness away.... it is healthy..... sounds like you two do a lot of that.......... good for you...... guess you are all moved and unpacked.. how is the new place? Maybe I missed that post ,, sorry.... but am interested in how you like your new pad...........

Betty said...

Hi Karen,

I'm glad to be back home and visiting my favorite blogs. I didn't realize you had an anniversary and a birthday recently. That must have taken place while I was gone to Ohio. I didn't have much of an opportunity to get on a computer while I was gone and believe me I was having withdrawals, lol.

Anyway, Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday, both belated of course.


Dawn said...

I was wondering about you and Diane today when I heard of flooding in Arkansas again. It's been quite a year down there!

Hey, have you thought of the connection between your coffee and your headaches? Just curious!

Shari said...

Karen-Once in a while I'll catch his show. They are funny. I guess here it's on the Country Music channel.

I hope you can catch up on your sleep.

Keep fingers snow yet. :)

Mary Isabella said...

I have been thinking about you and those awful headaches. I am praying they will leave you alone . I have had bad headaches since I was 14 years old and I know the pain you are in my friend. I am glad you had so many sweet cards I can thank of how much you deserved each one of them!!!!

Have a beautiful night,

Mike Golch said...

Hootin' Anni said...

Hi Karen!!!!! I was wondering about you...thought maybe you were feeling poorly or something. I'm glad to see you're just a busy gal.

PS ---LOVE your '"I'm missing...."' header. That is just so perfect for you. [not that you're sad and missing your DH...but, the graphic concept, y'know?]

You get some well deserved rest now, y'hear?

[and I too love the Blue Collar team] My favorite it the "Git 'er done' dude...Larry.

Shelley said...

Hi Karen, hope you are having a great day and I hope your birthday was wonderful. Happy 13 years with your DH. My husband and I will be married 34 yrs in Oct.

I was just 15 when we married.
With so many divorces in the world today, I think it is great when couples commit, to death to us part.
Don't get me wrong, our marriage has had more than it's share of troubles,but we make it through them,with God's help.

I pray you and your husband will have many more years together and be very happy. God bless you Karen and peace be with you.


Rachel said...

Hi Karen! So sorry I am here late but sure hope your birthday and anniversary were happy ones.

It's so wonderful to have good laughs like that isn't it? I love it when I'm laughing so hard I'm almost crying and my jaws hurt!!

smileymamaT said...

HA! Your DH is funny. Isn't it great to sit together and watch stand-up comedy and laugh your butts off... SmileyDad and I do this a lot, crack ourselves up,... a nice way to get through cold winter evenings. We love Bill and Larry and all those guys...

Sandra said...


I'm just now getting back to blogging and catching up, looks like I missed a LOT.

First, Happy Birthday and Anniversary, hope you had great days :)

LOL at the F16 story, especially since Curt is an F16 mechanic LOL

Hope you're having a great weekend, Hugs

Dawn said...

Hope you're okay - long time since you wrote! At least for you it's a long time - you usually visit every day. No pressure of course!
