We Have A Bear

 We have a Bear!!!

Cheer and Mascot tryouts is a big thing in Texas.....and last week was the big day for Jr. High tryouts at our school.

Mylee enjoyed being a mascot last year, so she decided to try out again for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.

So....we have a BEAR!!!   

I'm super proud of MJ.....she worked very hard on her routine and all her props!  She also arranged multiple songs  together in order to make her musical tape.  She created her own moves and her performance was so good!!!

She used a Hawaiian theme, complete with totem poles, 
a beach background, Flamingos, Palm trees, surf board and even a huge (made out of a box) bottle of suntan lotion.  

I would say this was great thinking from a 13 year old.

Congratulations Mylee.....!!!

MJ, Sassy, Mylee Jo........(Just a few of her names) is a super busy young lady.  Not only is she an Honor Student, but she is very active as a student counsel member as well as MANY Sports. 

Love you Sassy and we are so proud of you!

 Once again....we have had a cool weekend.  It rained here on Thursday and Friday of this past week, and there was little to NO sunshine on Saturday.  Today, the sun has made it's appearance even though we have a lot of clouds in the sky.

Sam and I were going to go see the Bluebonnets yesterday, but with such cloudy weather, we decided to stay around here and visit a couple of flower nurseries to pick up a few plants that I have been looking for to plant in my flowerbeds.

This is actually a hanging basket....

A few coleus and some fountain grass...
also, some mystic blue salvia.

Mexican heather, hydrangeas, and some flowering moss.

And of course, in the Texas always need a few lantana plants.

I sure have a lot of work ahead of me this next week!!

Online Ordering

Who shops online??  Me, me, me!  With the "pandemic" last year, I think a lot of people were shopping online.  

My neighbor asked me a couple of weeks ago if I owned stock in UPS and FEDEX.....she noticed that they deliver to my house almost every day.  The truth is, they do stop here at least 3 or 4 times a week.   Not just for me, but for all of our family.  

My address is convenient for the girls to pick up their packages here, and they stop by the house each day after school anyways.  I'm guessing the delivery guys really don't mind, since I leave them snacks and drinks. 

This front porch has had LOTS of deliveries over the past year...

Who doesn't love to get good advice?  I certainly do!!   

My advice for you today is to be very careful when you order online.  I never have any issues with Amazon, Dillards, Macy's, and other big stores.  And....I have never had a problem with other places until a couple of weeks ago.   

I found some really cute shops online that carry some adorable tops....↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓

Like the one above.....↑↑↑↑↑↑↑

I thought this would be a perfect top for me to wear in Jamaica.    However, I Did NOT check the reviews or whether it could possibly be a scam sight.   😓😓

After I had already made the purchase of $77.00, I went back and read some of the reviews and needless to say, they were not the BEST.  One review said they paid for an order and only received one top.  Never received the other two that she had ordered.  

Just so happens that I received an email from this same company that said ONE of my tops was shipping but that the others would ship at a later (unknown) date.  

I FEEL SCAMMED....already!!

Hopefully...I will receive my complete order....

However:  My advice is that if you order online, ALWAYS check the reviews and the scam alerts.  

Wishing everyone a beautiful sunshiny day..

To Fish or Not to Fish

This past weekend, Sam took his boat out to the lake to make sure everything was running properly.  He had it Winterized back in October and then had it all checked out for this Spring Season, about three weeks ago.  

The ultimate question would the boat all ready for him to be able to fish, or would it need to go back to have some things tweaked with the motor?

I helped him get the boat in the lake and needless to say, it did not work!!  At this point it was a "Not to Fish" kind of day.  

After a short time, he got it loaded up and he took it back to have repairs made. find out that it really was in perfect running condition....IF, if the proper button was pushed.  

Yep...there is a certain button that has to be pushed after being Winterized and he had forgotten about it.  

The Boat is Now completely ready TO FISH!!!!

He doesn't know it, but I've already got the greatest catch...."Him"

 Happy Easter......🐣

  What is your favorite thing about Easter?  

Family get-togethers?    Easter Baskets?

Dressing in your finest clothes?     Egg hunts?

Good Food?      Candy eggs and chocolate Bunnies?

All of the above things are FUN....However, as a Christian, I know the true significance of EASTER>

Jesus is Alive!!!!!   Hallelujah !!!

Jesus was not just any prophet or just any teacher.....He was/is the Son of God...the RISEN savior!!!   Death did not win...Jesus arose and lives forever!!

Can you just imagine how Glorious it must have been on Easter morning, to have seen an empty tomb?  The grave was empty and death had lost it's sting!

Happy Easter my dear friends...🐥

A Day of Remembrance

  We have had a Beautiful Day here in East Texas....... Memorial Day:   A day of remembrance for those who died in service for our Country! ...
