Looking for a new hairstyle

I am growing out the hair on the top of my hair (I think) so I thought 'Hey, I'll get hair extensions.' So I called some salons... first one want $1000 the second wanted $1500, the third said it is $150 per hour plus hair...

I think I will just suffer it growing out!

Chalk one up for me again!

I just ran 3.1 miles in under an hour! Haven;t done that in years! I guess the elyptical helps. And the running didn't hurt my boob and underarm that I pulled the other day!

This pic is at the halfway point: Riteaide on Newtown Rd.


Here's my cheering squad:

Signs of the times.

Here is a heated debate over the age old question:

"Do Dogs go to heaven?"



























Bbbbwwwwwaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....................................................

My Guestbook

Lost in Austen

I just bought this movie online and watched it as soon as it arrived. I loved it! Sure it isn't true to "Jane" but I loved the fluctuations and changes that occurred due to time travel! I think Jane would have gotten a real laugh over it!

More Suth en-ism's:

conniption fit, and that you don't "HAVE" them, you "PITCH" them.
____

Only a Southerner knows you can say anything bad about anybody… as long as
you end it with “bless their heart.”

___
Only a Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens,
peas, beans, etc., make up "a mess."
___
Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of
"yonder."
___
Only a Southerner knows exactly how long "directly" is, as in: "Going to
town, be back directly."
___
Even Southern babies know that "Gimme some sugar" is not a request for
the white, granular sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl in the
middle of the table.
___
All Southerners know exactly when "by and by" is. They might not use the
term, but they know the concept well.
___
Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for
a neighbor whose got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big
bowl of cold potato salad. If the neighbor's trouble is a real crisis, they
also know to add a large banana puddin!
___
Only Southerners grow up knowing the difference between "ri ght near" and
"a right far piece."They also know that "just down the road" can be 1
mile or 20...
___
Only a Southerner both knows and understands the difference between a

___
Every Southerner knows tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, and coffee are
perfectly wonderful; that red eye gravy is also a breakfast food; and that
fried green tomatoes are not a breakfast food.
___
When you hear someone say, "Well, I caught myself lookin'," you know you
are in the presence of a genuine Southerner!
___
Only true Southerners say "sweet tea," "sweet milk," and "light bread".
Sweet tea indicates the need for sugar and lots of it -- we do not like our
tea unsweetened. . "Sweet milk" means you don't want buttermilk. And
"Light bread" is white bread.
___
And a true Southerner knows you don't scream obscenities at little old
ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway. You just say,"Bless her heart" ...
and go your own way.
___
To those of you who are still a little embarrassed by your Southerness:
Take two tent revivals and a dose of sausage gravy and call me in the
morning. Bless your heart!
___
And to those of you who are still having a hard time understanding all
this Southern stuff, . bless your hearts, I hear they are fixin' to have
classes on Southernness as a second language!
___
And for those that are not from the South but have lived here for a long
time, all y'all need a sign to hang on y'alls front porch that reads "I
ain't from the South, but I got here as fast as I could.."
Southern girls know men may come and go, but friends are fahevah !
Now... 0Shugah, send this to someone who was raised in the South or wish
they had been!
If you're a Northern transplant, Bless your little heart, fake it.
We know you got here as fast as you could.

Guest Book.

I have added a Guest book on the right hand side of the blog. Please feel free to sign it!

It's the little things...

I learned a long time ago that when I am going through a rough patch I should look for the tiniest of beauty hidden all about me, to look for a glimpse into the magical world that God has created and I will not only feel better, I will be building an arsenal of mental pictures that I can draw from when I am not in a place I can look or when I get old and can't go in search of such beauty. Then I learned that I don't have to wait for a rough patch. And one day I decided I should bring a camera with me and record them. I have been enjoying this scavanger hunt for God's magic immensely and it has gotten even more enjoyable since Burton got a new camera! I love this camera!!!!!
