We woke up to snow. Amazing if you ask me,here in the heart or center of America! Mother Nature blessed us.
We have needed the moisture for the past three years.
Thankful I am for the snow.

Random Reds

Standard

I thought that being it Valentine’s Day I would have fun and take pictures of my red belongings! Now I will share with you. I know that Valentine’s Day is pagan holiday and I am not a pagan any more due to the fact that I have been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ my LORD, therefore, I am no longer a pagan. {{((hugs))}} thanks you God for sending your Son to be the Savior of the World. As a side note did you know that this past Tuesday was Fat Tuesday? Wednesday was Ash Wednesday?

Well here are my Random Reds….I do LOVE RED.

Me and Thee and Flowers

Standard

I have been blessed with receiving flowers from my hubby this past week, first he brought me, a single red rose

{True Love}

{True Love}

Then another surprise came about mid week (yet I don’t really remember when he brought it to me}  I do love flowers and they bring happiness and cheer a hundredfold during the winter months… maybe that is why we have Valentine’s Day in February? You tell me, for I do not know. 😉

What-a-Week :) End

Standard

Friday was a tournament for our high school boys team. We left the house early, 6:10am met some others at Wal Mart to head south to Leon, Kansas! Yep! 4 games our team had!

K and took some sewing she wanted to learn to embroidery, I bought myself a kit as well , since it had been years since doing this.

We stopped at McDonald’s to stretch and get “breakfast” that is about all I can do at that place, it’s better than nothing…..small black coffee with bacon,egg, cheese biscuit….preparing to get on the road again and eating, {little foggy that day along with smidge of icy-ness on burb lights and windshield}

First Game: My son didn’t play, the other team was small and our older guys would have stomped them; so our second string had to do the job, they did not! Therefore we lost, and deserved it. They had way too many missed shots and free throws… you just can’t miss free throws, you just can’t….I mean like 90% of them.

Two games in between….K and I get out our embroidery, I get her set up but she ends up running around with her friends and never learns to embroidery! I start working on I mine.

Second Game: Finally my son is playing and the other boys, but not at the same time. We play an Oklahoma team. We are ahead the whole game then get a little behind (too many games for me to remember the score for you) I was taking pictures, then the tie up  end of the 4th quarter, we have the ball under the Ok teams goal, we have plenty of time…2.7seconds I think, my son ends up with the ball, he dribbles, goes across the half court line and he releases the ball, it looks to be short…his team mate is ready to catch and shot…..the buzzer…. the ball……. swish…did it go in the hole in time???? YES? THEY WIN BY 3?!!!! Even the other team was excited {to a point}…. our coach [my hubby} was mentally preparing for overtime when out of the corner of his eye he sees the ball go in!  OH, THE JOY AND LAUGHTER ON THE BASKETBALL COURT…..my C was a hero for a couple of seconds….for forever a hero in this mom’s heart .

Two game break, our boys needed a rest and food!

Third Game: Second hardest game of the day, but our boys still won and everyone got to play. My mind is a blur by this time, it is 3pm and I have been sitting in bleachers many hours, eating some and drinking water, and one coke. Taking lots of pictures! We the EAGLES played a team from Arkansas City {we say Ark City}…The Lions!!!

Yes…2 game waiting period again and now it is after 6pm before our last game….it’s running slightly behind but doing well!

Fourth Game: Another Oklahoma team, we won by alot, and my son didn’t play as much but did play. We came home with 3rd place because there was a 3 way tie and the tie breaker was point scores on those games not the tournament game, so no biggy! our boys had fun and played some good ball!

Dinner time! Pizza Inn, three car loads, not that many of us, 4 adults, 6 young men who are starving and silly!hearts_collage-3961Saturday, our church had a Valentine Banquet, for married couples and singles could come if they wished 🙂 We had lasagna, spaghetti, salad  catered in, the salad is not your ordinary salad {avocado; chicken;crumbled bacon their house dressing} we had country singing for entertainment. It was a good evening and being i am on the committee who plans I was blessed with helping to cleaning!

Today was Sunday, we went to church for worship, sang…listened to great sermon and sang again. Then had dinner at home on this windy 34ish * day and I took a nap {so did my hubby, 2 dogs and probably the cats} Soon, we head to small group. That is my What-A-Weekend!

Hope yours was fun, full, and great!

Just thinking about this week of Christmas…

Standard

BEAUTIFUL Day! sun is shining here in the heartland.

There is good in every day even when it’s sad or bad things happen. There are times we have to dig deep to find some thread of good, this week [since Dec 21] several people have passed away. Along with the JOYS of CHRISTmas there are hurting people. This year I happen to know several people who’s lives have been touched by the loss. A 7 year old boy, from the community I grew up in in Oklahoma….a divorced mom (I think could have died of a broken heart)….a daughter (maybe my age) her parents are friends with my parents…left this earth on Christmas Day, she was with Hospice. I know there are more just by looking at the newspapers. Life goes on and it must.

This Friday is not so bad, the sun is shining on me here, this noon day.

I plan to grocery shop for my hubby bears birthday tomorrow; shop at Kohl’s; do some creative sewing; and throw some laundry type work into my day….better get to it.
