Single tree


Looking out behind my house I see a tree standing by itself. I wonder if it’s always been all alone , it has fields and mountains to call it’s home, Does it matter that it stands alone with so much view for its eyes to roam?

Do trees have eyes, can they even see, or am I just making to much out of the single tree?

A new Era? ?


While planning my wedding there are things that have come to my attention that I have found rather bothersome.

Unless u r looking to spend 300 or more to rent a party tent, u r out of luck if it rains. They sell these, party tents, all over on ebay or amazon and they run from 30 to 2,000. But almost ever one I read states they are for sun protection and not made for wind or rain… So, that means if u plan an outside wedding and it rains, u r out of luck??? Really??? That just doesn’t work for me. Lots of people want to be outside but can’t afford a large tent that is wind and rain proof. 300, that’s just for a small one. Why does it have to cost thousands of dollars to have a nice , beautiful wedding ?? They say to save money, no caterers, ok, family or local places. No photographer’s, ok, family and friends snap away, “we r doing this” they do have excellent photo shops now but of course that’s another 50 or so. For music, go local, friends or make your own recording , I’m lucky that david is a former band member and has all we need for that, but then you are still looking at , flowers, real ones r very costly since u need a lot! The grooms clothes are not usually on hand and same with the dress. I think the Era of the DIY wedding is upon us! Brides are doing more themselves and I can see why!!

I bothers me how much you need to spend to have a wedding these days.I know it used to have traditionally the brides parents pay and all the old things that went with weddings but now u have people who are doing it more than once . It isn’t easy to do on a tight budget but I think I can safely say I will be under 1,000 when we r done. Here’s hoping!!! October 14 is coming quick!!

Wedding update


I got my dress, can’t try it on with out another set of hands and sent out a 911 on Friday to all my friends. Nothing yet.

We got a 10 x 30 wedding tent and a white tarp so we will have a space of 10 x 60 if it rains. If not we will b even better.

Wanted a reception and had people suggest a pot luck so we are working on that. I have my bouquet started. We still need to get more chairs, need to go back to augusta and get copy of my divorce papers so we can get the license, david hasn’t started on his stuff at all, alter, clothes, stumps. We are going fancy rustic. Birch wood log alter, like a bunch of stuff to match.

Going with just royal blue and white decor, making it all myself. Still need the cake.

Two days short of a month left!!!

Fuzzy wuzzy


Not poisoning but can cause rash if u get stung by them,

This very fuzzy yellow, thing, with black thorns was making his way across my dining room today. We picked him up and put him outside. I got curious later and looked him up.

Kinda wish I hadnt. It will turn into one of those big huge ugly brownish grey moths.

My girls


My kitties have just become so much more social and playful since we moved here. It scares me because they keep crossing the street so I try to get them to stay in back of the house. Did u know a cat considers a two mile radius to be there boundaries! !!! Two miles. Wow! I don’t want them to leave our one acre. I have been looking into ways to keep them away from the road but whatever I do they can just go around it!!

Pre-med!!


Never will I be ready to watch you leave. The day you arrived was the day my life truly began. Never could I have imagined my boy would grow to such a wonderful young man, never because I doubted you but in doubt of myself. I am so proud of my son. At 19 he has the next 12 years planned out. God willing they will go as such, I loved having him home with us for the 4th and as usual breaks my heart when he leaves. My son, pre-med.
