Are we half way through March already?  This is crazy!  Where has the time gone?  I know this Winter has seemed especially long to some and it has felt like that to me too at times but soon we will be complaining about the heat.  I can't wait!!

I see that almost a month has passed since my last post. I thought I'd better do a post today because soon enough I will be mucking around in all things Alpha, Beta and Gamma.  Well...hopefully not so much of the Gamma.  : )  We will be leaving in a couple weeks and won't be back till late May.  We want to spend some extra time visiting family after the outage.  Masterchief's mother is getting up there in years so we want to spend some quality time with her while we can.  My mother has been going through a tough time with the chemo treatments so I want to be with her a bit.  And we can't forget those grand babies!  I miss them so much and they grow ridiculously fast.  

It seems that Mom's platelet count is rarely high enough for her to go ahead with a treatment and she hasn't been feeling well.  These six treatments should have been over and done with long ago but she is still pressing on.  


When I wait so long between posts I feel like I need to play a game of catch up.  So here we go with a bunch of pictures to let you in on what I've been up to this last month.

I worked on my sampler a bit more.  I added the flowers and squiggly design under them.  It took me forever to decide what to put under all that.  I finally settled on the first verse of my grandmother's favorite hymn, The Haven of Rest.  It took me equally as long to figure out what font to use.  This sure is turning out to be more complicated than I wanted it to be.  It gives me a whole new respect for those who design for us.  

I made Dum Dum flowers I saw on Pinterest.
I gave one to the neighbors little girls and now
don't know what to do with these. 

Made some killer biscuits. They didn't last long.

Walked in a different direction and found an old
cemetery in the woods.

Munsey Cemetery - founded in 1860

L.W. Johnson

A view in to the pines beside Zollicoffer's Headquarters.

This chimney still stand in the middle of
Gen. Zollicoffer's Headquarters.

We live right in the middle of the Battle of Mill Springs tour stops.
Lots of Civil War history here.

Masterchief had the idea to buy us both a new gun.  It is my first and the only one I really care to have. I'm not as crazy about them as he is but it's good to know that if someone should break in and mean to cause us harm, I am ready for them.  We live way out in the country so it would take a long time for the Law to get here.   It was 75Âș on this day and someone should have slapped me when I heard myself complain about how hot it was!  Any one of you can offer a virtual smack on the forehead and I'll accept my punishment.

Masterchief's is a Taurus .40 cal compact.

Mine is a Walther .22 cal with a laser sight.

Ever have one of these days?  For a few days it seemed everything I touched I broke, burned, scratched or flooded.  I managed to break both of these at once.  I believe that's called multi-tasking.

Had my yearly Dr's appointment yesterday and was told that since I had my hysterectomy at such a young age,  I have probably been experiencing the symptoms of menopause during these last 5 or 6 years and blamed my behavior on whatever was going on in my life at the time. Thanks Doc!  I suppose that is to make me feel better?   Masterchief says "bring it on, I can take it".  The poor guy doesn't know any better but it is still very brave of him to say so.  

That's all I have today.  I've done my exercises today and now I need to look for a dustcloth.   If you could see this place you would realize that I don't look very hard.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you so much for taking the time to leave such sweet comments. I appreciate each one!
