Little Bit of This and A Little Bit of That

Good Morning! What a beautiful day it is in Northeast Arkansas...sun is shining brightly, skies are blue and the temperature is a perfect 73 with a high of 83! God is good!

This week is going to be completely crazy for me as I have to get two week's worth of work done in 3 days, clean house, do laundry, pack, get everything set up and prepared for our 9 day vacation...leaving on Thursday.

I am feeling the pressure and a tad bit of stress this morning to get it all done and with a good attitude :-) I know when I am feeling the stress because my right eye starts to twitch and my heart will skip a beat every couple of minutes. I am praying that I will do all things to the glory of God, with the right attitude, with God speed and efficiency...making this preparation a complete God-filled success.

Now, being that I will be nearly crazy this week....I am going to post a couple of "This and That" posts...meaning, I have many things to say, cleaning out my draft box, picture folder on my computer and have fun doing it. So...bear with me, ok?



I want to wish a very, very special person a HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY! He is my #1 fan of my blog and has been such an encouragement to me whether he realizes it or not.

He is a wonderful, godly example of what God has called a man to be...a godly husband, father, grandfather, pillar of the church, servant, encourager, mentor and friend. He is my friend and I admire him greatly...and I've never told him that.

Bro. Charles, I am going to work on getting my "Love Story" printed in a book while I am gone on vacation in a few can upload and order your blog printed into a book.


To Beth in NC...Happy Birthday yesterday, my sweet bloggy sister and Kim at Homesteader's Heart, my other sweet bloggy sister....HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LADIES!!!


Tyler's 9th grade Award Program back in May for A and B Honor Roll all year. We were so proud of him but he was frustrated because he missed having All A's for the year by .1 in Pre AP English during the 2nd 9 weeks...he had a have to have a 89.5 or higher before they will round it up to an A.

We are still extremely proud of Tyler. He pushes himself to make all A's and he took all Pre AP (Advanced Placement) courses in English, Science, History and Math.

Great job, Tyler! Sorry, I forgot to post this at the time :-(

More tomorrow!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!


  1. I hope you enjoy your time away. May you be renewed, refreshed and your spirit restored.

    As for twitching right eye when you're under pressure, I got this picture in my mind of Inspector Clueso from the Pink Panther. LOL Crazy the way things stick in my warped mind!


  2. I just KNEW the birthday shout out was FOR ME. LOL How rude!

    Hey girl, have a great time on your vacation and please keep both hands on the wheel this time with NO TEXTING involved.

  3. Jenn,

    How do you get your blog printed into a book? I would love to do that for my oldest daughter! Please send me the link or the website name.

    By the way, have a blessed, relaxed and well deserved vacation.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  4. Jenn,

    Pass along my congratulations to Tyler for all his hard work for his academics. Even though he may not make the perfect percentage, all this perseverance will pay off when it is truly needed.

    Congratulations again!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
