December 30, 2013

It's been a while since I have been on here.  Lot going on and haven't made the time.

Christmas went well.  I went to my brothers Christmas Eve and spent the night.  We had a gteT time.

I am hoping to start my podcast January 1st.  I am not coughing like I was.  I am also using Zello to do a few live podcasts.  So far I don't have any members but I still talk occasionally.

We are off New Year's Day.  I heard that they only needed one person to answer the phones on New Year's Eve.  I can work from home so that's what I may do.  

I am actually going out this New Year's Eve.  I am going to the elks lodge with some friends.  I haven't been anywhere in years.  It's time I start enjoying life.

Thanksgiving Day

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at Becky's today.  Ate way to much but boy was it good.  I visited a while then me and Leo went back to their house.  I stayed a little while and I went home.  I was so glad to see my little dog Maggie.  She and I have been snuggling on the couch today.

Watching movies tonight and enjoying the warmth.  I am so blessed to have what I do have.  I work so hard and try to maintain a nice home.

I ordered a computer mic and stand.  I am going to broadcast my first podcast to the world next weekend.  I am going to work on what I will talk about this weekend.  I have to check out some books and look up some information too.  Excited about this and hope I do well with it.  I just hope I can remember my user name and password.

Happy Thanksgiving!

November 24, 2013

Great sermon at church.  I like our new pastor but really miss Brother Jim.  I may have to surprise him and visit his church soon.

I should get my Christmas club savings account the first Friday in December.  I want to give my nieces and nephew their Christmas money, pay off a bill, & pay for my propane bill.  I need to catch up on my rent too.  I hope I won't get behind any more.

November 21, 2013

I decided today that I will start a Prepper podcast in December. I found one that is free to use.  I want to one day be a well known blogger and podcast hostess.  I will try my hand at internet radio soon but right now I will work on my Prepper podcasts.  I will also start posting on YouTube as soon as I find some good topics. Not sure how it will work out but it's free and free is good.

Wish me luck !

November 17, 2013

I want to live a simple life one day. I want a tiny house that runs primarily on solar, propane, generator, and firewood. I want a large vegetable garden and several kinds of fruit trees. I wound have a large storage shed to hold all my stuff so the little house wouldn't be cluttered. Getting the house built would be easy. The only problem I would have is finding a nice piece of land away from everyone. (Cannot have that in the Mississippi Delta because of all the crime.)

Have you all ever thought about downsizing and living a self sustainable life? I plan on doing this in the next couple of years. My plans were to do it in March of next year but not sure yet. 
Would love to hear what you think and if you all thought about the same thing.

Backpacking Survival Part 4

Hiking boots are not always necessary for short hikes. A good pair of shoes is all you need if you plan on doing a hike under 5 miles. A true backpacker will wear hiking boots on every hike. I prefer a good pair of Nike or Reebok myself. If I were to go through hills, water, or rough terrain; I would want to wear boots. Weight is another factor to consider. A heavy pair of boots will slow you down and tire you out in no time. Dress comfortable and keep it lightweight.

Backpacking Survival Part 3

Never go on a backpacking trip alone on your first time. Always go with a group or an experienced backpacker. (Safety in numbers.)
Wal Mart has a lot of supplies in the hunting section. Amazon and Ebay have a lot as well. Dollar stores have a lot of small packages foods and supplies that are great for a back backs too. I get most of my supplies from Dollar Tree and Fred's. 

Backpacking Survival Part 2

A backpack must contain a few vital essentials. The rest can be up to you whether you want to carry them or not. 
Water for 24 to 48 hours, water filtration straw, knife, first aide kit, protein (tuna packs, peanuts, canned meats, protein bars, etc.). Carbs are also a must for energy like candy bars, energy bars, cookies, dried fruits, fruits, hard candy, gum, and soda. If you are traveling with pets; they need extra foods and treats too.

Backpacking Survival Part 1

I always have my dogs follow me when I go for a walk. My tomcat usually walks with us too. I will be making a few backpacking trips in 
November and December. My dog Kincade who is the leader of my dogs and my little dog Maggie will be right along my side. (I keep dog and cat day packs in my emergency bags.) We will only do a maximum of 3 miles the first time to train them to walk with me in an emergency situation. Kincade is a very intelligent and highly trained for my protection. Maggie is a small dog and doesn't mind well but will accompany me on at least one trip before the end of this year. 
A day pack shouldn't weigh over 45 pounds. You only need to pack what you will need for 24 to 48 hours. 
My first practice backpacking will only be a 3 mile hike to see how well my dogs will do. The rest of them will be 5 miles or longer. Most backpackers will walk a minimum of 10 miles in one day. I have a lot of practicing to do before I can do that on a regular basis.
I will be organizing a 3 mile backpacking trip in the early part of December. Will have the day, time, and location posted on here by Wednesday of next week. Hope a few of you will be able to make it.

November 7, 2013

My Carey laid to rest her husband JT to rest yesterday.  I am so worried about her.  She is not doing well right now. 

Went to my friend Lorie Jones wedding shower last night.  Had a great time.  I hope to see them over the weekend too.

Not going to do much this weekend.  Sarah's birthday was Tuesday.  I mailed her a card with some money in it.  She was happy.  I might wait and go next weekend for Leos birthday.  I had a small paycheck this week and it will be short next week too.  I already bought my brother his gift.

November 2,2013

Beautiful Saturday morning.  I slept till 7:30 am which is unusual for me.  I woke up in the middle of the night and watched tv on my laptop.  I may go on and send my dish network box back .  It costs to much and I am not home enough to get my monies worth.  

Not doing anything this weekend.  I am going to save my money and go next weekend for Sarah's birthday.  Gas is a little cheaper but I need to save money.

October 20, 2013

Great church sermon today.  I love my church.  I am so happy to be part of it.  I changed my whole life when I excepted Christ and joined that church.

Looking forward to next Saturday at the third annual Harvest Festival at church.  I got my first donation today.  It will help with the food bad candy.

I have been really down today.  I either need a new atmosphere or a better job.  I love my home but it's not enough.  I need a job with meaning and purpose.  What I am doing is making somebody else's life easier.  I need to start making my life easier.


October 20, 2013

Great day with my family celebrating Mason and Jordan's birthday.  Enjoy all my family time with them.

Bruce didn't get off until 8:00 pm last night.  I didn't go over there because it was so late.  I doubt we will get to see each other until after farming season is over with.  

I need a hobby or something to do on weekends.  My hobbies are fun but only a few times a year.  I need something to do at least once a month but I can't let it interfere with church.  I might try to join a historical club or organize one of my own.

I am trying to plan out next weekend.  I want to go to Southaven next weekend to the flea market but don't know yet.  Gas is so expensive that I hate to go out of town but once a month.  November is going to be a busy month for me. 

I don't know what I am going to do next year.  I don't like this area and I despise my job.  I can see staying if I find a better job.  I love my home.  I need a little more money and a better job position.  I want to move to to the Ozarks but I have to make good money.  I can't be stuck there with an old vehicle and no money to get home on.  


Saturday, October 12, 2013

October 12, 2013

Today was so peaceful.  I watched some tv, took a cat nap, hung out with my pets, did a little house work, and enjoyed my time home.  I didn't have a lot of money left because I had to pay my rent. I am content with being broke because I know my bills are paid.

I am thinking about opening up a checking account.  I had trouble with them in the past.  It looks like I need to take care of business and open one up agsin.

The ebt cards were temporarily out at the grocery stores today.  They day it's a computer glitch.  I say it was done as a test to see how stupid they will act.  They acted stupid in Clarksdale too.

October 6, 2013

Great weekend in Greenville, MS at a ghost hunt with my cousin Cathy and her friends from Louisiana. Lisa and Jason had a great time too. Rained hard Saturday night and into Sunday morning. I didn't get home until Sunday morning at 7:30 am. Next time I do something like that; I am spending the night. 

I will be planning a trip to Vicksburg some time in November or December to tour the old homes and go to the old battle ground. Great shopping and lots to do. Good foods and great culture too.

I have been saving my money for Christmas and doing well with it. I should have close to $1000.00 in December. Will buy Christmas with it and then use some of it to take a trip on.

October 3, 2013

There's no hurt any worse than the hurt inflicted by someone you love.  When it's gets so bad; it's time to leave.  If you know someone will never love you then it's time to move on.  Nothing you will do will never make them love you.

This week has been stressful but not like last week.  I did get a rug for my office so it doesn't look as bad.  That's a plus.  Now for a cleaning lady once a week like the other girls and a new chair.

Clarksdale is getting bad.  It's an awful place.  White people are leaving in groves.  Nothing is going to change.  It will be another Mount Bayou in a couple of years.

September 28,2013

Has a great week at work. Very busy but I got it done and it made the week go my faster.

I am working on a plan to start selling more than Watkins later this year. I don't know what I will do yet. I was successful selling purses and wallets. Not sure what the market is yet. 

I am going to the flea market if I can find my debit card. I think it's on my desk somewhere. I can't do anything without that card but look. I hardly ever have cash on me.

September 25,2013

I know I need to get away from here but I love my home and church.  I then look at it like this.  I don't own this house and my pastor is leaving in two Sundays.  Maybe this is my sign to move on.  I just need to get out of here.

Two women were victims of a brutal attack and home invasion this week.  Another black on white crime that will be pushed under the rug by our white democrat leaders.  The victims were beaten and robbed and the police wouldbt even take the time to do fingerprints.  Losers!


Wednesday, September 18, 2013

September 18, 2013

I hit my house partially cleaned last night. Rita will be back Thursday to finish what she needs to do.  I am going to have her come here every other week.  I sure do need it.

I am going to start going to bible study on Wednesday night.  I used to go every once in a while but stopped.  I need to go on Wednesday nights.

I need to make a little side money this fall and winter.  I have to start saving more for Christmas.  I have a good bit in Christmas club and around $50.00 in the bank.  I am going to put some stuff in layaway that I want in a few weeks.  I love layaways because you can get stuff you need and make payments.

September 8, 2013

This weekend went well.  Friday after work; I picked up Maggie from the veterinarian and carried her home.  Saturday afternoon I stayed home and went to eat at The Ranchero with my friend Becky.  

Bruce and I talked and text all day Saturday.  He had to work all day.  His little boy spent the night with him so I didn't get to see him.  Maybe next weekend because it's not his weekend.  Don't know the fate of us but so far it won't go any further than what it is now.

I am going to my brothers this morning after church and Sunday school.  I will go back in a few weekends to the flea market.

I am going to start packing as soon as it gets a little cooler.  I can't stand it while its so hot.  I have to decide what I want and what I want to keep.  I am getting rid of all my big stuff.  I think I will give it all to Mildred and Sonny Pharis.  I will pile them in the corner and slowly move them once I find a place I want to move.  I have to make sure I can get a job first.

We are supposed to get a raise soon.  What I get will decide how much longer I will be there.  I really don't like the pay and how they take advantage of me.  When I found out the new girls even make more than me; I almost walked out.  I plan on giving a notice but not staying the whole two weeks.  Not being mean but it's just business.  I am going to leave on good times though.  They have been good to me.  They just looked past me when they gave the other girls a raise.  It's more of a pissed off attitude I have right now.

September 6, 2013

This week has  gone by fast.  Things are going well so far.  I still need more money so I may have to look for another job or a part time job.

Bruce and I are doing ok.  Still no serious relationship but its better than nothing at all.  I doubt I will see him this weekend but maybe the next weekend.

I am getting Maggie fixed in the morning. She is inside now.  I hope to keep her inside tonight so I can get her fixed.  She's such a sweet girl.  I love her so much.

I might go visit my brother and his family Sunday.  I haven't been since my birthday.  Gas is so high and my car is leaking oil like crazy.

September 1, 2013

Had the best time with Bruce Saturday night.  We had so much fun watching a movie and talking. He is doing much better since his heart attack.  Don't know if we will start seeing each other yet.  Don't really want to be in a committed relationship with him right now.  

Sat around the house most of the day.  Cooked some bratsworth and had a great lunch and supper.  Going to cook tomorrow for Labor Day too.


Saturday, August 31, 2013

August 31,2013

I feel much better that Bruce and I are taking more.  He has hurt me so many times yet I take him back.  I think he learned his lesson this time.  We will see...

My maid didn't show up this morning so I had I do it myself.  I am tired right now.  I have to go mop the hallway in a few minutes.  I will then clean the sunroom and that's all for today. My bedroom is the last room and I will do it tomorrow.  My house will all be clean then.  I am going to use the left over $40.00 to buy some extra food and go visit my family Sunday of Monday.  The other two rooms that I don't use will be cleaned in a few weeks.  I want one room made into a guest room and the other one an office.

August 25, 2013

Having a wonderful Sunday today. Went to church and Sunday school this mor ing. 
Watched a little tv, ate lunch, and fell asleep on the couch. I was still tired from taking that sleeping pill this morning at 4:30 am.
I am now outside burning boxes in the firepit. The breeze feels great! I had to get out from under the patio bd sues it just to hot with the fire going. I might even cool some chicken on the grill for supper.
I hope we get a nice raise at work soon. I am having a hard time right now. I am still praying that I will find something better soon. I can't continue to struggle.

Vacation Days 3 & 4

Vacation Days 3 & 4

Had a great time Wednesday in Stuttgart, AR. Mack's Prairie Wings is an awesome store and the set up is breathtaking. I stopped by the Louisiana Purchase State Park and walked on the board walk. Nice place, well kept, and peaceful. I will be back again soon. 

I stopped by my friend Rocky's furniture store and visited with him and his brother for a while. I even saw some furniture I wanted but I have to make sure I am staying around here before I make any new purchases.

I don't know how able people who can work can sit at home and expect someone else to take care of them. I would go completely crazy if I stayed home all the time. I did manage to keep myself busy this week but I am running out of things to do. I had to get creative yesterday because I was running out of things to do. 

Thursday, I rode to Oxford to see my aunt and uncle. I carried my little dog Maggie with me. We had a great time. Maggie tried to bite the UPS man and growled at everyone in Petsmart. 
Hope Friday is a good one. Last day of my vacation.

Vacation Day 2 (August 20, 2013)

Vacation Day 2
I woke up at 7:30 am this morning. I never get to sleep that late. It felt good to get up when I wanted to.

I made it to Clarksdale this afternoon to go to the library, run a few errands, eat lunch, and meet with a friend about some work I can do at home for extra money. 
I still have plans to leave out on my adventure but not sure what day yet. I have some work to do around the house tomorrow and another meeting. 

I think I want to find work that I can do myself from home. I spend $275.00 a month on fuel and another $120.00 a month for food for lunch. I added up my receipts from my organic farm last night. I did ok but not like I was hoping too. I sell Watkins Products but only have 2 customers. I don't promote it like I should. I will start working on this idea because this vacation is making me want to do better for myself.

May be leaving out in the morning on one of my adventures. It's only going to be a day trip though.

August 19, 2013 (Vacation Day 1)

Vacation Day 1

My first day of vacation has gone well so far. I got to enjoy my coffee & breakfast on the patio. I downloaded a new book on my Kindle and listened some some good music.

I don't know when I am heading out for my long awaited trip. That's what makes this all the more fun. Not even sure where I am going. Not even going to plan it since I am now going to be a free spirited woman with a little bohemian in me. 
Hope to have more adventurous news tomorrow.

August 18, 2013 (My 44th birthday)

Had a grand time at my brothers for my birthday party.  Good food and just being together made me so happy.  Great gifts too.

Becky, Dana, & I had a great time last night at The Redbirds game.  We had a rain delay but the got to finish their game.  The food and fireworks were great too.  Perfect weather for a nighttime ball game.

I bought two nice blouses this afternoon. I like all this going out so I want to look sharp.  Ha ha.  I am going to buy some new underclothes, bras, and socks next week.  

I an going to start tomorrow morning off by coloring my hair.  I got it cut Saturday morning.  My grey is really showing now that I am getting older.  I am going to color it darker in the fall.  It might make me feel better.



August 17, 2013

Redbirds game and fireworks were awesome last night.  Had a great time with Becky and Dana.  I ate so much that I won't be hungry for a while.  We got there early and net a lot of people.  Great experience.  

Tomorrow I will go to church and then to my brothers to celebrate my birthday.  I can't wait to see my family.  It's been two weeks since I have seen them.

August 16, 2013

Started celebrating my birthday early with Aunt  Lorene and Arthur at the Oak Ridge Boys concert.  Had a great time at the concert and loved the big buffet.  I got a card and some money too.

I am taking off next week for a vacation.  Not sure what I am doing of where I am going.  All I know is I am not going to work and they better not call me.


Tuesday, August 13, 2013

August 12, 2013

Counting the days till I am off for a whole week.  Still not sure what I will do yet.  So  many choices; so little money.   I am sure I will end up somewhere in Northwest Arkansas.  I am looking at options tonight but still not so sure.  

I know they are going to want me to cancel my plans next week but I can't.  I have been waiting to long to be able to go somewhere.  I am devoted to my job but this time I am devoted to Ruby.

Going to have a good time this weekend.  Everything is going well so far.  I just want to have fun and enjoy myself for a change.

August 10, 2013

We had our annual Lions Club pancake breakfast for the Sunflower blues festival.  We weren't busy as we were last year.  I got there early to help cook and set up.

Cooked a great supper of baked, seasoned pork chops, green beans, and mashed potatoes.  I only ate one plate too.  I have enough left for two more meals.  

Been watching movies and playing on my phone most of the day.  My DVD player has gone out on my new laptop.  I hope to get it fixed soon.  I love that laptop.

Jessica moved into MSU today.  I didn't go because there wasn't enough room in the car and I didn't want to drive alone.  I am going to go visit her one weekend in September   or October.  


Thursday, August 8, 2013

August 8,2013

CI am counting the days till I go on vacation.  I think I am going to ride to Heber Springs,AR and camp for a few days.  I might even carry Maggie with me.  All I need is a tent that I can put up and take down in a few minutes.  I have everything else I need.  I am going to bring my portable washing machine, coffee pot, little grill, cooler, etc with me.  My tea will be already made and in the jug.  This is going to be do much fun!  I hope my car can carry all of my stuff.  This is going to be a great survival experience and I am going to make the most of it.


Tuesday, August 6, 2013

August 5, 2013

We had two new girls get hired at work.  One started Monday and the other one starts Tuesday.  I am glad to see our company expanding where we need more customer service representatives.

Eating right is hard but that's what I need to do.  I did ok today.  I hope to do better Tuesday.

My dogs and cats are so precious to me.  I love to see their sweet little faces.  If I change jobs; I will carry  my pets with me.


August 3, 2013

Had a great time in Olive Branch with my family.  I am so proud of my brother and his family for getting out of this area and bettering themselves.  I won't be moving there any time soon.  My goal is to move to North West Arkansas.

I love watching Duck Dynasty!  They are good people that involve Jesus in their daily lives.  I bought seasons 1& 2 and added it to my collection.

July 24, 2013

I am finally starting to work on my website for my organic farming business.  I am excited to begin to start after waiting for months to find out how I am going to do it.  Go Daddy has some really nice templets that I am going to follow.  I am going to work on my story and get together a few pictures of my plants and pecan trees.


I am tore between living here and working in Clarksdale or moving somewhere and have a better life.  I cannot give up my sweet little animals and I won’t.  I am not going to take any more in until I figure out what exactly I want to do.  In the meantime; I am going to work hard at what I do and make the most of it.


I have been sleeping well these past few nights.  I am not waking up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep in a timely manner.  I am getting to work around 7:15 am and its working out great.  The neck rest I am using is making a big difference to me.  That was the whole problem all along. My neck wasn’t aligned properly and it was making me have problems sleeping.

July 20, 2013

There is so much hate in this country right now.  Blacks rioting because George Zimmerman was acquitted last week.  

I worked a few hours this morning.  Kincade road with me.  I feel safe when I have my best girl with me. She is such a loyal and loving dog.

I am sitting home again this weekend.  I am going to the flea market in Southaven next Sunday.  I need to save my money to go then.  I should have a good paycheck next week.

I rearranged my bedroom this morning.  It's not finished yet but i am making progress.  I have it set up like a studio apartment.  I need a microwave and hot plate in here next.  I spend a lot of time back here.  I can keep this room cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  I got a great deal on a compact refrigerator too.  I even bought a tea jug so I can have tea when I get thirsty.

July 8, 2013

Today went well for a Monday.  I try to get along with people by not being around them.  

My dog Big Susie loves to be inside.  I have to wrestle with her to make her go outside.  She is a good dog though.  She loves me and looks out for me.

I wish things could've worked out with Bruce.  He's a good man.  Just self centered and a womanizer.  He will never change and I know that.  That's why I left and won't be returning.


Saturday, July 6, 2013

July 6, 2014

I didn't get to go to Rayville, LA like I had planned.  The Volvo is still using oil and the hood latch broke.  The black truck is running good but it uses a lot of gas & the air conditioner is broken.  

My luck is so bad.  I think it's karma kicking me in the ass.  I have paid for all my mistakes but I still pay with all the bad luck I have had in the past 7 months.

I am thinking about buying another vehicle soon.  I will buy a new one or a fairly new one.  I hate to make plans to buy one and get laid off.  I need to pay off my loan at work and my other loan and then I can afford $400.00 a month for car note and insurance.


July 4th, 2013

Had a good 4th of July at home.  I cleaned up a bit, played with my pets, and cooked on the grill.  I am working tomorrow so I didn't party to hard.  

I said a short prayer for our country and what all is going on.  I know God heard my prayers.  We are a strong and powerful country.  He will bless us.

Happy 4th of July.

June 29, 2013

Had a hot and humid week at work.  Glad it's the weekend and I can relax.  I need to work on being grateful but I just can't do it.  It's just not in me to smile and act like nothing is wrong.

I cooked a great supper tonight.  Ham tenderloins glazed in honey, brown sugar, and vanilla all grilled on a charcoal grill.  I even grilled green beans on the grill & they were awesome.  The rolls hit the spot too.  Maggie ate two plates too. I am going to grill out July 4th too.  I love to cook and cooking on the grill is always so much fun.

June 25, 2013

I am now sick with a summer cold. It's awful too. I didn't feel like going to work yesterday but I did. I feel worse now. I am wide awake and all stopped up. The medicine I am taking isn't helping either.
It's Tuesday and I am already looking forward to the weekend. Don't think I will go anywhere this weekend. I will just rent some movies and stay home.
A lot of mess is going on at work. There's a lot of people mad and very unhappy. Some people get away with to much and they know it. I like my job but its time I look elsewhere. Need more pay and benefits with less mess.

June 23, 2013

Had a great time at the Little Big Town concert Friday night with my friend Sonya.  Great supper too.  Not much on the casinos but I still had a good time.

I went to Southaven Saturday to go to the eye doctor.  I got contacts again.  I am wearing one in my left eye and nothing in the right one.  I see great now.

I bought a lot of nice things at the flea market.  I will be there next month too.  I think I will go to the flea market the second weekend in July in Tupelo.  I have been before and enjoyed it.  


Saturday, June 15, 2013

June15, 2013

This morning started off beautifully.  It's so cool and peaceful right now.  It's going to get hot later on this morning so I am going to enjoy it while I can.  I got my kitchen floor mopped and cleaned up the bathroom.  Just need to mop bedroom and living room and I will be all set.

I had three men come look at the camper yesterday evening.  They want it but I wouldn't sell it for $3500.00  I told them $4000.00 and they said they would pay me this morning.  Not having much luck selling it but not taking any less than $4000.00.  It's paid for so I will keep it.

Bruce and I are taking but not like we were.  We are just going to be friends.  He is not worth all the trouble and I am over it.

If my camper sells; I am going to head to Southaven and load up on food for me and my family.  I want to keep a well stocked refrigerator and freezer.  The kids love fruit so I am going to buy them a lot.  There's so much I want but I am still a little cheap.  I need to save that money so I can go on vacation or move.  Going to buy some camping supplies when I do sell it.  May have to live in the tent one day if things don't get any better.

Until next time,

June 10, 2012

Today I feel I need to move on and do something with my life.  Just making it just doesn't cut it anymore.  I can't make a living just scraping by.

The Elks Lodge has an ole time jukebox. Songs are 2 for .25 too.  Old songs but still good ones.  I played it several times tonight.  I will probably go play it tomorrow might too.  I love coin operated  machines.  

Not sure what I will do this weekend.  I want to go to the auction or go out to eat.  Can't make up my mind.  I have the rest if the week to decide.

Today is the second day of the Mississippi Methodist Annual Convention.  I am having a good time.  I am learning a lot and meeting new people. 

One of my teeth are hurting something awful.  It's making my time here not as much fun.  I can't eat good and I constantly hurt.  I got some if what's in my teeth out this morning but there's still plenty in there.  

Can't wait to get home and tell people about the convention.

June 1, 2013

This morning started off beautiful until it started storming.  At least it's cool and there aren't any mosquitoes.

I enjoyed another beautiful morning at the library.  I edited some pictures of the reenactment and carried them to Walmart.  I am making a photo album of all my adventures this summer.  I just hope to make it interesting.

I am so excited about my trip to Jackson, MS to the Methodist Annual Conference this coming Thursday through Sunday.  I am worried about my little Maggie because she is so attached to me.

May 24, 2013

Beautiful morning!  Wish the weather was like this all the time.  

I am sitting here on my patio thinking about like and what I make of it.  I get paid once a week and its gone before Friday afternoon.  I feel like I am working just to survive and not live.  I hope I get to babysit this weekend because I need that extra money coming in.  I'm make enough money to survive but that's about it. I don't have anything left over because I just don't make enough. Gas is so high & the light bill is high because of the summer.

I'm going to Helena Arkansas in the morning to  watch a Civil War reenactment. I'm so excited. Its been a long time since I've did anything like this. The best thing about it is it's free. I want to go to the Delta cultural center and look at the Lincoln exhibit as well.  I don't do a lot on the weekends but I want to do this one. It's close to home and I wouldn't be burning a lot of gas. I have a few dollars with me to buy lunch and then go home.

  Clarksdale is really getting bad. They had another shoot out yesterday afternoon. The police were called but never showed up.  This shouldn't be happening. The crime and the blacks are all out of control.  I love my beautiful home and where it's located. I just hate coming to Clarksdale and worry if I'm going to hurt, makes, or killed by some black and a gun. I try not to be so judgmental but sometimes you just can't help it.  I take care of my dogs because they are my protection and the only thing keeping bad people out of my yard.

I'm looking forward to my trip to Jackson for my church. I'm so excited about being a delegate. I don't know what I will do with Maggie while I'm gone. She is so scared and alone when I'm not here.

I turn my air conditioner on last night. It felt so good sleeping in the cool. I turned it off when I got up this morning so I guess I will have to sweat it out this afternoon. I'll mainly stay in the living room with the ceiling fan on.  When I sell my camper; I'm going to pay the light company $200 as a credit on my light bill. I need to cut down my electricity bill this summer but I know it's gonna be hard. I don't make a lot of money but I do want to stay cool and comfortable in the summertime.

Friars point & Coahoma county weathered another storm tonight. We had very little damage. We were so lucky this time. The tornado, hail,heavy winds, and rain all headed east of us. I heard that Quitman county and Panola County got hit hard but with no reported major damage. Kincade, Maggie, and I got out in the storm to make sure the people of Friars Point were alright. We do enjoy what we do. Always want to help someone in need.
I'm going to patrol Moon Lake and paradise point after church to make sure there wasn't any damage and all the people were okay. I will report this on Twitter, Facebook, and Weather Underground.

Have a great time at Ashley and Todd's wedding and reception. They are such a sweet couple. I've known them for a long time and I know that there will be happy together forever. Congratulations Ashley and Todd!

I was planning to plant a large garden this summer but I decided that a small one will be sufficient for right now. I just don't have enough financing to make it happen. It was just a dream that I wanted to make come true but right now I have to look at it on a small scale. I was supposed plant this weekend but the rain and thunderstorms change my plans. I'm glad I didn't because we had a lot of hail tonight. I guess I will try to do it next weekend. I had big plans but I had to cancel him because of different things happening this summer. I'm not going to give up on my idea but I'm going to work at it on a small scale.


May 10, 2013

Jessica had her lead out prom tonight.  She looked beautiful .  She is such a smart girl.  She works hard and wants to do something with her life.  I am so proud of her.

I am going to work in the morning for a few hours.  I have a lot to do and I need to do a conference call with one of our customers.  I have to work at least 4 hours to make it worth it.

The FBI, DEA, and the National Guard took over Clarksdale Mississippi. There're helicopters flying all over town and the agents were pulling people over left and right and running their background checks. I was excited to hear what I was going on in town. I'll try not to be so judgmental over Clarksdale but something has to be done. I'm pleased to hear that there were results.

My teeth are hurting so bad. I am going to call the doctor tomorrow and try to get them out soon. I don't want to take any prescription drugs because of the problems that occurs once you get off of them. I do need to get this wisdom tooth cut out as soon as possible. I do have the money now and I'm going to go on and get it done.

I think I'm going to get a manicure and pedicure soon. I haven't had one in a long time and I think I deserve one. I need to get the manicure to have my cuticles trim because I can do that myself. I'm cutting back on a lot of things but I still have to have my nails done a couple of times a year just to make them healthy. I don't need a pedicure but once a year. I can usually do my toenails myself. I need to get them trimmed & the cuticles on them trimmed as well. I want to go to Southhaven in the next couple of weekends and have it done.

Gotta go.

May 4, 2013

Crazy week at work. I'm so glad it is the weekend. I love my job and the people I work for but it is crazy sometimes. I'm glad I can work fast and accurately because I do get a lot of work done. I'm just tired and mentally exhausted by the weekend.

I'm trying to decide what I'm going to do this weekend. I sent out a little money out of my paycheck to go somewhere. It's between Southhaven and Oxford. They are my two favorite places to go on weekends when I have a little extra money to spend. I enjoyed both places. There's so much to do there and you don't have to have a lot of money if you're going to look, watching movie, or visit friends.
I think it's going to be the Southhaven area. I love Hernando, Olive Branch, and Horn Lake too. All 4 of the cities are beautiful, no crime, and plenty to do. I saved out $50 out of my paycheck to go somewhere. I have a tank full of gas and my Volvo is fixed. I want to have fun and enjoy my day. I want to go watch the movie Olympus Has Fallen at the Malco this afternoon. It's been going on at the movies for going on six weeks. I just haven't been able to get up there to watch it. It will be on DVD soon but I want to go watch it at the theater first. I haven't been to see a movie since January.

Jessica will be graduating Lee Academy in another week. It's funny how time flies by. I feel so old. I'm so proud of Jessica. She's done so well in school and is going to be an engineer. I'm going to give her money along the way and a small gift. I wanted to get her an iPhone 4 S because her iPhone 4 is broken but my brother said for me to keep the phone. I might keep the phone and sell it on craigslist or eBay. I could get a lot of money for it and give her some of that money.

I'm going to get the air conditioning fixed in my Mitsubishi Montero sport in the next month. I want to sell the camper so I'll have the money to buy all the stuff I need. I love the truck and I guess I'm going to keep it for another year. I may end up selling it next year and buy a newer vehicle. I'll always keep my Volvo because it's so dependable. I need a newer car for travel in case I found another job that's out of town. I don't want to spend a lot of money but I think I can spend around 20,000. I'm looking mainly towards the Toyota Prius . Really nice car and very gas efficient.

April 25, 2013

Maggie and I are sleeping in the camper tonight. I think we're going to enjoy this. This will be my first night spend the night in the camper since I bought it. I think I would enjoy living in this camper if I lived in a nice place that they didn't have any crime. I don't think I can handle a lot of wind, rain, tornadoes etc. It doesn't take much to keep me happy. I am a simple girl. I like the simple life with a just a few things. I am definitely not a material girl.

I love my big beautiful home but it's going to come a time where I won't be able to afford to live in it. I know that I'm going to have to move away from here in order to make a decent living for myself and be safe. This part of Mississippi is not what it used to be. They're just too many bad people out here.

I've made a lot of bad decisions in my life. I suffer from them on a daily basis. I know that Jesus has forgiven me for all the bad sins I committed but it doesn't mean the world has to.

I made a bad purchase last Friday and it resorted to my lights being cut off today. I can pay my light bill tomorrow and get them turned back on but it's the fact of the matter is I made a bad mistake out of greed. I went out and bought something not because I needed it but because I didn't want anybody else to get it. I knew that I could sell it and make a lot of money. Now I still have it, it has not sold, and I feel like a fool. I don't know if I'm going to keep it or not.
I hope tomorrow goes by fast and carefree. I don't think I can handle a whole bunch of mess tomorrow. I'm sure glad it is Friday! I hope that I get to babysit Saturday night and make a little extra money to help me pay some of my bills. It's not like I have a lot of bills. I just like to spend money preparing for the future when I'm not sure of the present.

I do need to pay my propane bill and have them check the time for leaks or ask Mac to put in an electric hot water heater. I can only handle so much boiling water on the stove to take a bath. It's really not bad but it is when you only have two eyes that work some of the time on the stove.

Things are going to get better for me and I will be able to leave this area and make a nice living for myself somewhere where there aren't any thugs, democrats, and plain old hooligans. Tired of living in fear all the time.

Better run.


April 25, 2013

This is been a sad week for me. Two of my friends that I grew up with lost their moms this week. Another friend of mine lost his sister yesterday in a car wreck. You never know when it's your time. God loves us all and he wants us to be with him. We are only on this earth to temporarily.

I've been seeing a lot of fleas and ticks this spring. I treated my dogs to fleas and ticks but I'm still seeing a few. I saw a fat chick this morning in my bedroom but it was good. I think it fell off of Maggie because it had white hairs on it. I hope they're not going to be a bad problem this year. Maggie loves to get out in the grass and play with the other dogs and the cats. I may have to go to the veterinarian and get some better medicine.

I'm worried about a good friend of mine. He just seems so distant here lately. He's going through a lot of family trouble and I am really worried about him. I don't want him to make the wrong choices because he's come so far is doing so well. I'm just a good friend and I am just worried about it. She's getting what's coming to her and it will be real soon. See is too many people for so long that they're finally getting tired of it and going to mess her over. I kind of feel sorry for even though I have no use for her.

Earth Day

I celebrated Earth Day this weekend by not using any fuel unless I had to, hanging clothes outside instead of using the dryer, eating leftovers, only using lights and electricity if I had to, and watered my plants with my water that I've been putting up. I am going to continue birthday Sunday as well. I try to be health-conscious and earth conscious on a daily basis. This weekend I wanted to express how much I appreciate this beautiful planet and all of the surroundings.

I have so many things to be thankful for and I want to let everyone know how wonderful this planet really is. I may not be happy with our presidential situation or some of the rules in this country but I do love my planet. Happy Earth Day!

April 14, 2013

Had a great day today. Got in at 5:30 am and went on and made coffee. Washed dishes, washed clothes, fed animals, and last but not least; throw away a dead mouse off my bed. Yuck!

I went to church this morning but didn't stay for Sunday school. I was getting a little tired after church. I got home and laid on the couch and watched tv. I had to go to Clarksdale and buy groceries. I stopped by my brothers and gave the kids their stuff from the festival.

I took a short nap this afternoon. I really did need it too. I am outside on the patio trying to get my grill to light. I am going to cook hamburgers for tonight and one to carry with me for lunch.

It's so windy and cool this evening that I almost want to make a fire in the fire pit. The wind will only make it spread like wildfire. The grill went out again so I guess I will cook the hamburgers inside on the griddle.

I supposed to get paid for the camper Wednesday. James said he does want it. I would've kept it if I had a way to pull it. Arkansas was where I wanted to go and I was so excited. Oh well. Things will come my way later on. I am going to trust in The Lord and He will lead me.

Juke Joint Festival 4/12/13

Had a grand time at the juke joint festival. The weather is perfect and the timing was right this year. I worked the pancake breakfast for the Lions Club for a few hours. I walked the festival and got a lot of handouts. I even bought a Delta Bohemian t-shirt.

I want to go somewhere Sunday but can't make up my mind. Might be just as well I stay home. My house is clean and I want to plant more flowers. I need to go get a few more plants tomorrow. I bought 3 new, colorful flower pots for the patio. I want to make my yard look nice this summer. My patio is going to be my place to be this summer. I want to buy a few more chairs so I can entertain.

My teeth are giving me fits again. I supposed to go to Dr. Roberts Monday afternoon and he's going to do with you can help me. I'm taking ibuprofen but it only helps for an hour or so. I am glad I took out that dental insurance last year. Wish I had done that a long time ago.

I was hoping Bruce would come over this weekend. I guess he is to busy with farming and his son. He never has time for me but I still wait patiently.

April 10, 2012

This week has been great so far. I'm so glad I talked to Jimmy because he has made a difference. I love my job and the people I work for but I sometimes need a break. I'm going to make the best of it here.

The juke joint festival is this weekend. I am so excited. I don't care about the nighttime entertainment but I just love what goes on Saturday. I have a busy weekend this weekend. I have to go to a banquet Friday, the juke joint festival Saturday, babysit Saturday night, and go to church Sunday. I hope I can get it all in one weekend.

I'm going to buy a season pass to magic springs this summer. I decided that will be my vacation this summer. I won't stay the whole weekend since its only a few hours away. I hope to make a few trips to Tupelo too.

I am up early this morning. I guess I was just dreaming about the coffee and just woke up. The coffee sure is good this morning. I'm just not a sleeper anymore. I don't have anything on my mind; I just don't sleep late. I enjoy going outside to the patio and drink coffee. I'm going to be headed out there in a few minutes.It's one of the few joys I have.

The weatherman predicts bad weather tonight and tomorrow. I just heard a little thunder just now. I like the bad weather and the storms but I just don't want anything to happen to my camper. It's supposed to be sold next week and I don't want to risk it being damaged. I don't want anything to happen to this house either because Mac will probably tear this house for down like he did the other one. I hope not because I love living in this house. If it gets bad out; I will have to go out and patrol. It's part of my job being a storm tracker. I try to help people as much as I can. Two years ago I actually saw a tornado go right over my truck on my road. It was kind of exciting because I've got to look up in it through my sunroof and saw all kinds of things inside of it.

I will go on patrol at the beginning of the storm. I will go around to the neighboring towns in my area to make sure people are okay. Don't care to much about going to Coahoma because of all the bad people there. They don't care if you are trying to help them either. Kincade and I will patrol Friars Point and the end of Dog Bog road. It's better to be safe than sorry.

April 7, 2012

This is been a great weekend. We celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday last night. We all had a great time. Went to church this morning and Sunday school. What a great message brother Jim gave us today.

I should get the money from my camper sometime next week. I really hate to see it go but is not doing me any good just sitting in my backyard. My family could use that money right now and so could I . I sometimes wish that I didn't buy it but then I would've spent the money on something else. This way, I can sell the camper and get my money back out of it and my family can enjoy it.

The Juke Joint Festival is next weekend. I always enjoy the flea market and all the festivities going on in the daytime. My niece Sarah has an art picture in one of the shops on display. I'm so proud of her. I have to work that morning at the old greyhound bus station cooking pancakes for my Lions Club.

The weather has been beautiful this weekend. I've been outside on the patio most of the weekend. I even ate supper out here tonight with my sweet little animals. It is just so beautiful out in the country this time of year. I just do not care for winter time. Spring summer and fall are are alright for me but not winter. I'm going to buy a fishing pole in the next couple of weekends and get my fishing license. I am not going to try to catch fish but I do want to practice casting. It is one of my hobbies that I'm trying to do this year. I don't need to just sit at home under the air conditioner and watch TV. That's part of my problem with me being overweight.

I hope to start planting my garden next weekend. I'm looking forward to it. I'm not gonna do it as big as I wanted to at first because I just don't have the manpower to work the garden and work full-time. I was gonna put some in buckets but I think I'm going to use the upside down plant holders. I've seen a lot of people use them and they had a lot of success with them. I want to grow the garden for me and my family and put up some of the vegetables in the freezer or canned in jars. I'm going to sell the rest if I have any left. I doubt that I will make a big crop this year because I'm just not going to plant a lot. This is my first go with this and I'm really excited but I have to think logically.

I am ready for a new start in life but rather right now I have to put that on hold. I am hopefully going to change jobs in the next few months. I need a little more money and health insurance more than anything. I do love my job and the people I work for but right now I have to watch out for Ruby because I am number one.

Easter Sunday

Happy Easter! This morning I went to church and we had a wonderful Easter Sunday service. After church the children had an Easter egg hunt. I didn't get to stay long after church because I had to finish cooking. My family came over and all had a good lunch and enjoyed our day together. It was rainy and wet so we really didn't get to do much outside. We were all together and we had a good time and that's what counts.

I know a lot of people that that really don't know what Easter is or what it's all about.. I try to talk to them but they don't want to listen. I feel that I should be a witness to them but sometimes it is hard to get across to others when their heart is so against Jesus.

I saw a documentary on HBO this afternoon. It was about people living in poverty and not having enough to eat because they have lost their job or doctor bills have overwhelmed them. These people couldn't even get food stamps or any kind of government assistance. I just don't understand how our government works. They only help the ones who don't want to work and the ones trying to don't get anything. Sad world we live in.

Happy Easter!

March 8, 2013

I am taking off today to take care of some business and enjoying my day. Work is getting to me and I need a break. I was going to get my tooth cut out but my insurance won't pay until July. I am still taking the day off because that's my plan. I don't change my plans only for family. Work is getting to me anyway. One day it is great and the rest of the week is horrible.

I woke up at 2:30 am this morning. It is almost 5:00 am and I am wide awake. I might go on and get up. Folgers coffee is calling my name. I am kinda hungry too.

I found two puppies on the road Wednesday night. I took them and going to find homes for them. I have always had a big heart for animals.
