Hello Sistahs! I'm still alive. Just been very busy with all the "stuff" to do in regard to getting Mom settled and the ranch on the market. I work everyday packing and filing and cleaning and the siblings come when they can (once for each of them). My darling Gunner has been beside me the whole time working right along with me. Mom seems to be adapting to her new home. She told me the other day that sometimes she looks around and wonders why she is here in this place? I told her that her mind is getting tired with all the worry of the ranch so I had to move her out of that environment. Seemed to have settled her some. As I go through her things I continue to find so many things not right that I am even more sure that I made the right decision to move her. Wanted to thank CA and Greenie for the beautiful support cards. I shared them with Mom too so she'd have something pretty to look at. Now, thank you all for your prayers. Without them I don't know if I could have made it this far. Still have a ways to go but it is so wonderful to know y'all have my back. EVEN with your own serious worries you shared the power of your prayers with me and Mom. My heart is so full of thanks for my Sistahs, you make me cry I am so grateful. Please know my prayers are with each of you as you deal with your challenges too. I will get to the challenges one of these days but not just yet. I'll keep dropping in from time to time and someday actually do a challenge. God's love and care to each of you!

Bless you, Tate! I know your mom's move has been hard on you, but I also know that you've made the right decision. She's comfortable and safe now. It's a lot of work to go through their things. I'm still going through my mom's stuff. We recently went through boxes that we just put in the shed. I found receipts from the 1950's! There's still a lot to go, but I also know how it is to have a sore hand when you're trying to go through those boxes. That's why we just moved lots of my mom's stuff here to go through later. It's taking up a lot of space though. Anyway, I feel for you and have kept you in my prayers. I know you do the same for all of us sistahs. Blessings! Now, be sure and take care of YOU!!

Good morning, Jan! Glad you could hop on the bus for a bit. It's good that things are slowing down for you, too!

Dr. John Pemberton invented the flavoring for Coca Cola. I actually knew this one.

Good morning. It's beautiful here. Sunny but a little cool. I had to turn the heat on for a few minutes just to take the chill out of the air.

I am going to go in and get a big pot of spaghetti sauce going. I use Italian Sausage and make meatballs. It is so good. I made a big pan of enchiladas yesterday. My goal is not to have to cook much for a few days. I can't eat the enchiladas because they are too fattening. I have been going to WW and I have lost 20 lbs. I have just let myself get fat. I'm looking for some good chicken sausage that I can grill.

Tater I was so glad to see your post. I can only imagine how busy you must be with everything. What did the Dr. tell you about your pinky? My Mom hated the Assisted Living Place. She found their rules hard to abide by. She was a smoker and of course that was a bone of contention for her. They caught her smoking in her room several times so they took her cigarettes away and would give her two at a time and boy did it make her mad. So she resented the nurses because she didn't understand. Then once she went into the nursing home she never asked for cigarettes. Her mind was to bad at that point. I sure miss her.

Ladies I hope everyone has a lovely day.

COCA-COLA but of course, I am late, and SYLVIA IS CORRECT - Congratulations - was too busy to check till now and I didn't read all the posts to see you had answered already.

Good for you Sylvia!! I try to watch what I eat and to eat healthy, but you are DOING something about it by going to WW (I SAW THIS AND HAD TO READ THE REST OF THE SENTENCE _ I THOUGHT IT WAS WILD WEST! LOL!)

Tater, so good to hear from you - I knew you were going to be busy with the ranch and Mom - just so glad she is settling in. Sounds as if you are getting the brunt of the work in cleaning out the house to get ready to sell. Will keep praying for it all to go smoothly - you know you are doing what is best and safest for your Mom!!

Jan good to hear the dust is clearing and you are not quite so busy!! You are almost back to the point of having some fun then!!

Got to go get Gavin now - catch up later!! Hugs to all!!!

Congratulations, Silly!!! You are correct!!!

Coca-Cola was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca-Colaģ, and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was sampled, pronounced "excellent" and placed on sale for five cents a glass as a soda fountain drink.

Oh my goodness, Sistahs, I come before you all with head bowed again, asking for prayers - this time for my DD, Mary - she is the single Mom of the DGS, Ty, - she has an extremely demanding job, plus and hour and a half ride each way to there and home, and has had a few medical things - like the Breast biopsy last year, and now a thyroid problem, and an ear infection that won't go away - by the time she gets home and makes dinner, she is so exhausted and is feeling totally overwhelmed, being the single parent who has to handle everything - she has been losing weight because she eats and then everything goes right through her, or she gets sick and it comes up - so much so she can't think straight or remember to do things that are important. She just left here, after coming up after work and crying about all that is happening that she is not able to remember and to deal with. PLEASE keep her in your prayers - I am going to do whatever I have to, to help her get everything back in order, so she feels like she is back on course. Just keep her health and mind in prayer, please - thanks from the bottom of my heart - it hurts me to see how unglued she is right now, trying to do it all alone, and coming from behind all the time. I know that your prayers are strong and our God is well able to help her. THANKS!!

Sending also prayers of praise and thanks for a good result for my friend, Janet's DD, Jill - they removed the cysts from her bladder and she has a catheter for a few days, and then they are going to monitor it closely and do periodic scans to check and make sure there are no more. PRAISE GOD!!

Lesley, how are you doing, Sweetie, been thinking about you and praying for both you and Justin!!

Greenie my heart goes out to you and Mary. Oh it hurts us terrible when our children hurt no matter their ages. I have been praying and I know all the Sistahs are praying for you all too.

I went grocery shopping today so I could have tomorrow free for the challenge. I have a couple of cards I need to make for myself to send out.

Wow it is beautiful today. Supposed to be 75. The sun is shining and its just beautiful out. I went to my deck and some of the horses were getting a drink and you could see their reflections in the water. Beautiful!

Have a good one everybody.

Congratulations, Silly!! You are correct!!

The carnation is the official Motherís Day flower. Ann Jarvis, the founder of the holiday, chose the carnation as the official Motherís Day flower in 1907 sending 500 white carnations to a West Virginia church for mothers to wear. Carnation flowers were her motherís favorite and she thought the white carnation signifies virtues of motherhood. After that first service, Ms. Jarvis continued to send white carnations to the same church each Motherís Day.

The white carnations were a symbol of purity, but all carnations are a symbol of beauty an strength. Red carnations are usually a symbol of those who have passed on.

Chickpeas - when they are ground up with herbs and spices, it makes hummus

CA, I did it once already, on the demo site, but now can't find the "sandbox" again - I want to keep sending them requests from my friends who are helping to bury SU in requests to get the MAN back - their website is so hard to find things sometime!!

Greene!! Congratulations, you are correct!!!


Falafel is a deep-fried ball or patty made from ground chickpeas. Falafel is usually served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as lafa. Generally accepted to have first been made in Egypt, falafel has become a dish eaten throughout the Middle East.

Hummus is usually used like a dip for vegetables while Falafel has different spices, is rolled into balls and is deep-fried and served in a pita pocket or flat bread in place of meat.

Click on PRODUCTS at the top of the page, then, look at the list on the left and you will find the Sandbox. I think it might be called Product Ideas Sandbox or something like that.

I'm attaching photos of the tables I've set for the Mother's Day breakfast in the morning. Three men from church are to be here early to do the cooking and serving. The little center pieces are tiny flower pots with a couple of sprigs of ivy and four Tootsie Roll Pops with punched flowers on them that were stamped with the Mixed Bunch set. They can each have a sucker with the flower as well as the checkbook covers you see in the cellophane bags on each plate. I just used DSP and cut it to size and inserted it in a plastic cover. I still have to cut up honeydew melons, but my arthritis chose to flare up and my ankles are killing me. I'll just get up early and get it done.
