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.

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.
