Weekend Fun

As many of my readers know, we are avid campers in the summer and fall. This weekend was no different. However, we were looking for a nice and quiet place to go and close to home since my daughter and her fiancé wanted to go and he had to work. We found it at Johnson County Park. It is a smaller campground and there is not a lot to do near there, but it was very clean and well taken care of and we were very pleased with it! The camp host was parked next to us and my husband and I spoke to him for a few minutes on Saturday evening. He is a retired gentleman and very friendly, but we discussed some of the rules and he does seem strict about them being followed. The really nice thing about our site was that a fairly newly built playground was across the road from us and my grand doll loved that! She played so much on Friday and Saturday that she was in bed at 6 p.m. on Saturday. The rain was nasty Saturday morning, but it stopped by noon or so and the afternoon turned out to be quite

Good Thursday Morning

Hello to all my friends in the world outside this farm. How are each of you on this cool fall like morning? Yes, it is cool in my neck of the woods this morning as temps are in the upper 50's. Don't rush to buy pumpkins though as the heat index is supposed to soar to over 100 degrees by Monday. UGH!!! It seems to me that this has been a very hot and somewhat wet summer. I am looking forward to some mornings like this one. I would love to see temperatures stay in the 70's and lower 80's for a bit. Yesterday the high was 76 degrees and it was wonderful to be outside and play with the grand doll. Mornings like this and days like yesterday are good for hikes. I got this photo from Pixabay,  but I feel like it is taken on the back side of our property because it looks exactly like the view you could get from it. We have trails like this that we made when a neighbor and his friends used the property to ride Suzuki Samari's back there. I miss those days! My girls lo

Tuesday Tiny Tidbits

Hello everyone! I am attempting to start a new plan in order to keep my blogging more on track. I am thinking that if I can find something that I can share and make a catchy title, it might keep me more on track. My Tuesday Tiny Tidbits is going to be just for me currently, but I am thinking about opening up a weekly post that other can link too and help others too. I know that blogging seems to come and go at my house, but I do enjoy the time that I am here catching up with all of you. Tuesday Tiny Tidbits this week is going to just share my other blog with you. I currently have my business blog as well as this one. On it, I share products that we sell and other business related information. I hope that you might check it out,  here . I also wanted to share an update on my grand doll. The surgeon says that her right leg is beginning to really look good. The growth plate is even beginning to straighten. The left leg is not straightening quite as well as we hoped but it is getting

Saturday 9 -The Nanny

Saturday, August 11, 2018 Saturday 9: The Nanny Saturday 9: The Nanny (1993) Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here . 1) This week's song is the theme from a sitcom that originally aired from 1993 to 1999. Were you a fan? A. Yes, I loved the show. I found Fran's voice to be annoying at first, but I grew to love her and the show.  2) The song tells us that Fran once worked in a bridal shop. Have you ever worked in a retail setting? A. I have worked in a retail setting several times. I was a manager for Dollar General for about 4 years. It is an exciting job but a very tiring job and it seems that these days customers are generally rude.  3) The kids in the Sheffield household appreciate their nanny's "joie de vivre," which is defined as "exuberant enjoyment of life." Are you feeling joie de vivre this morning? A. I can't say I feel joie de vivre , but I tend to enjoy life and I like to be ha

Trip Of A LifeTime

The last time we talked, I was headed to our  Pink Zebra reunion and I must say it was a fabulous experience. We learned a lot, had some fun and enjoyed some fine speakers. I actually got to meet Kelly Gaines, one of the founders of the company and she was a delight. The most exciting part of the entire reunion was learning where our incentive trip is going to be. It is Limerick, Ireland!! Ireland has been on my bucket list of places to visit for so long now and I must say that I am absolutely thrilled with this choice!! It is the trip of a lifetime and can be completely paid for by the company if I work hard and dedicate my time to this business. Many of you are well aware that my plate is usually full with chores here and the grand doll as well as working as a home health aide and the other multiple tasks that I have in a day. However, I plan to do all I can to earn this trip!! I am looking into vendor events and other ways to sell products and make new contacts. I am so excited!!
