Well Well Well.....

I have been working on this different and new thing and God has done it a gain. I was working hard as usual when on a potty break I noticed some lights out in the ladies rm. Well I can fix that. New bulbs. when I noticed different light bulbs go into this fixture. See different and new for me. Any way I remembered seeing them in the closet SOOOOO.... I quickly retrieved them and replaced them and guess what..... That's right it still won't work, oh well I guess I'll have to change the ballast so OK where is the breaker for this light? I checked in the obvious place and , nope, not in there, so I get our trusty Office Administrator to come and tell me if the light goes out as I flick breaker after breaker off and on- nope! OK then I give up. I guess it will have to stay out for now.
As I am doing my rounds outside I notice the lighting guys are here again just as Carolyn had informed us in her blog. They were only too happy to help me with my dilemma And the first thing they stated after I explained the problem was ....ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE BALLAST? Of course I stated then he asked me what is this switch for? pointing, (by the way it is one I had not seen earlier) Well yes that switch was for the light. And after replacing the old bulbs he turned it on and Ta-DA there was light. I was a blond in a former life.

  • Need to fill holes
  • need to change filters
  • only17 days until the kids are out of school for summer
  • Grand Daughter turning one
  • I am out of coffee at home, Having to stop at C.W.'s to get morning coffee. (it's O.K.)
  • Tony brought home some flowers , I get to plant. Ross will help.
  • Ross is back at school. Though he was Carolyn F's helper yesterday. She is so nice.
  • I am not getting many hits on my blog and have received only a couple comments. Speak up people.
Well that's all I got for now. Tomorrow will be a better day.

Create a Butterfly Garden - wikiHow

Create a Butterfly Garden - wikiHow


This is a production going on at The ROCK this weekend. I believe this will be an event to be seen. It will tell the story of creation with dance, music, lights and will get you thinking about all God did in the beginning. I can not even begin to describe what it will be like. The imaginations of the creative team has done it again. If you remember Imagine I can tell you Creation is better. Now one has to wonder- what could they possibly do to top it next year?

Mothers Day!

I love Mothers Day. Mine started with a call to my daughter who is a Mom this year. This is Jocylyn Marie. She will be one year old May 25th. Ain't she precious. Cassius made me a tea light holder in kindergarten along with a beautiful card that says TWO MOM. Love the way he spelled two. My husband sent me flowers for the first time, three beautiful PINK ROSES. One for each of our three boys. We went to church as usual and then we went home and watched the Star Wars Trilogy. (the first three which are actually the last three that came out first. What a great day of rest and relaxation. Today it's back to the same old same old, scratch that... THE DIFFERENT & NEW. Lets see what we can make happen today!

We must vote. As woman we have not had the privilege long. Woman need to vote. Men have had the majority for far too long and what we want is just as important. Please do not think this is a plug for Hillery. I think she is a strong woman but the plan for the gas tax holiday is not a very well thought out plan. A quick fix is not what we need. The problem is, this should have been focused on from the lesson that should have been learned in the 70's. Gas is not our only problem, we need universal health care, school improvements, better roads, and we need to take care of our country.
I will not say how I am voting but I will say my voice will be heard at the polls. Make and take time to vote.

That is what people say while talking on the phone..."same old same old." Does that mean they are bored, content, or believe that is all there is. If every time someone says "same old same old" we say "DIFFERENT & NEW" and tell them something exciting(or at least exciting to you) we could get them thinking. God does not want us bored. He has given us plenty to do. So if you find yourself saying "same old same old" stop, think, and say something new and different. I have been caught in this trap for some time now but I will make a special point to find something New & Different!
