children's hospitals and homeless shelters.....

Being homeless has to be one of the saddest things I think...I know how lucky I am to have a home and I think of all the people who have lost their homes from floods, tornados or just by not having the money to afford a home...or sometimes they just make mistakes like all humans do and lose their homes due to bad choices....like drug activity and those various mistakes like that...

I don't ever judge people for being human and making mistakes like that because nobody is perfect, only God is perfect....they should just follow God.....and be like him.

I think sometimes people get lost in life and whenever they get lost they make those bad mistakes and sometimes people have no choice they are just born into problems and issues like being homeless or abused.People need to be aware and be thankful for all the good and great beautiful things they have in their lives and count their blessings!!! always think of people who are homeless or in a bad situation or people who are sick..

i think people should make donations to help those people in need like the homeless shelters and the children's hospitals so they will be better for all people who need them and do not have any money to live on or survive on....

things like donating food, blankets, clothing to homeless shelters and money donations are always great things to give to homeless shelters and children's hospitals because they need those things because so many people are in these situations....it's a nice thing to do to help those people!

also I think that food banks can always use money to purchase food to give to needy people is another way to help out.....

all of these places also need volunteers so that is also a way to help make the world a better place!

making pumpkin seeds....

Went to church yesterday...

then I went to the grocery store with my Grandma.I found a Fall squash that you can cook and eat...I have made them before, so how I like to cook this type of squash is in the oven baked then halved with butter with/or a little bit of brown sugar....you can use (Splenda brown sugar) if diabetic.....it's seasonal and I like to eat seasonal foods during Fall...


I found this video about how to make your own Pumpkin seeds from a pumpkin you buy at the store...think it looks fun..i might try that some time....I made them when I was younger when I bought a pumpkin one time...they're easy to make!

I could make squash seeds also according to this how to video.

love, j.

governmental agencies who need help....

Just woke up this morning.

I've been thinking about the fact that so many governmental agencies need help all the time...they need all kinds of volunteers and extra support teams, and just well more help!

There all kinds of ways to help make a good difference in the world, save lives, and rid the world of bad people and all the crime that ruins all of our lives and touches our lives in all ways...even though you may not realize it all these bad things in the world do affect your life eventually because believe it or not the world is a small place.

the governmental agencies always need help all over the world and they have so many things to work on all the time to help clean things up that they will always have jobs available to people...I just realized that there will always be a job in these areas because the world is I think half good and half bad....so to help make it better why not help them out?!

I think it's always a good thing to help make the world a better place and if you hate your life or are bored with your life or just want to make things better for you and your loved ones why not just join them and help out you know?

I don't work for any kind of governmental agencies but it's something I have always thought about...I have always wanted to make the world a much safer and better place.

the agencies available here are OSBI, FBI, DEA, FDA, ATF, and many other agencies that serve the public and make life much safer for everyone....fire departments, animal welfare, police departments and all those are also a way to make a good difference!

it's just really a great thing to do....to want to join a team like any one of these and do something wonderful with your life I think. ;)

they all help keep us safe.

funny gifts....pet baths....steam cleaning....

Slept a little later today....

found silly things to give my brother for his birthday gift!...Haha! I always find him something silly at a store somewhere that is dumb or childish and it makes him laugh...and I laugh too! I also do this for his Christmas presents..i will buy him a nice gift and then I will also buy him a silly gift called a gag gift...which is just some goofy silly item from the store for little of nothing...that makes us all giggle and laugh all day about!

I start giggling in the store when I look at all the things I could buy him that are silly and I just laugh in the store at things I look at to get him....he never knows what I will find him!!! so I'm sure he is sometimes scared!...Haha! I think everybody should laugh all the time or laugh more in life!

his birthday is in a few days.

Gave the dogs a flea/tick bath today...again...those fleas and ticks are still bad and making them itch and everything...hopefully a good hard freeze will get rid of all the ticks/fleas in the world nearby!...icky...those ticks and fleas are worthless!

Gave Goofball a dog treat, he took a bath good and didn't act up too much he was good at being still this time for his bath!....lol..I like how you can sometimes train your dogs or your pets with treats like that, that way they can learn to pay attention to you and listen to you if they know they get a good ol treat!!!

Also I have been steam cleaning the carpet in the house where it's been stained with dirt or mud or something the cat did.I don't know, looks like dirt...but it's a tough job when you have to go over and over it several times to get the stain or the smell out of the carpet that's why I don't like carpet on floors I think wood floors are better for staying clean and healthier for people who have bad allergies/asthma like I seem to have.....Wood floors are much easier to clean I think...and prettier!..but I just have stupid old carpet...*sad face*

looks like my favorite nice uncle L. is going to be planting some wheat today or this weekend...I'm sure he would appreciate some good rain to help it grow soon.

the county is supposed to clean out the fence line on the north and I hope that they get it done soon and get that mess cleaned up so it will look nicer with some trees pushed out and change things up so it will look clean and tidy I think so anyway....

then there will be a new fence line put in you know....first we will have to put in a hot wire to keep the cows away from the road while they bulldoze and scrape the land there...I'm excited about that and how nice it will look hopefully!!! it's needed to be done for a long time....and how good the new fence will look!!!

the county does that bulldozing and scraping for free when you are a tax payer...whenever they get the time, they're always busy or something...so hopefully soon!

love J.

always take a bath......


I found this video of this little baby owl taking a bath.

It is sooooo cute!

I suppose he probably had to be trained to take a bath, but he really likes to take a bath it seems.

I wish I had a baby owl to take care of and train like that, but I'm sure there are a lot of extra things I'd need to know about owl care and I think they get mites so you'd need shampoo special for one or something for his feathers...

anyhow this is one of the cutest things I have seen in a while.

I like baby animals...and all animals young and old.

upkeep of your automobile......

Seems as though tires on vehicles just wear out very easily all the time...I suppose it depends on the brand you buy or the tread on the tires...You should always keep your tires aired up and checked because that will be a road hazard and a danger to your life and others on the road...

Haha rather funny to be blogging about tires but it's something that is constantly getting a flat and picking up ancient artifacts off the roads or nails off the roads....it gets expensive! I carry an air gauge in my vehicle at all times so I can check the air in them and I always inspect the tires for nails and I check to see if they are low of air.

I have seen so many vehicles with blown out tires on the highways and people should always check them before they take off driving to go somewhere..

I think the portable air tanks are good to keep in your vehicle as well...a necessity!

something else I always know to check is the oil in my car and I use a paper towel to check the oil with on the oil stick and you can look and see if it needs more oil by looking at the markings on the end of it and it will have a fill line and a grid...that's something I always check....I've had so many vehicles with oil leaks my whole life and I guess that is why I know to always remember to check those things because if I don't do that nobody else will do that for me at all times..you can ruin your vehicle if you don't keep the oil checked up on..

another thing i know to check in winter is antifreeze because without that your car will freeze up and ruin things because of freezing temperatures and all that cold air from winter all adds to damaging it without antifreeze....I use a tool that will check it and you can buy that at an autoparts store and you put your antifreeze in it and then check it after your vehicles has been setting for a few hours and you take the tool and dip it into the antifreeze and pull up some of the solution and it has to float the colored things in it so when it does that you know you have enough antifreeze in it....

you need to carry winter safety gear in your vehicle when it's winter and you are driving incase you are stranded and that way you won't freeze---so blankets, water, a little food, flashlights, cell phones always charged up, cover-alls, gloves, snow boots and hats so you will be warm if you are stranded....

you should always keep your air conditioner and heater checked out on your automobile too...

so I check my own things out on my vehicle...

it's good to keep your vehicles clean inside and out but whenever you live in areas that are dirty all the time or drive on bad roads it's almost impossible to keep them clean all the time so you have to continually work on that one!...i get lazy about that sometimes but the roads are so bad sometimes you can wash and wash the outside and the next day it's messy from mud..Haha....mud is the worst thing.

I also like to put fragrance in my car that smells good---my favorite is strawberry or vanilla smells...lol...I just like to buy one at a time...because they can get old and lose their smell...

and have a good radio system so you can sing along and do car-e-oke!!!...haha!

wish I had satellite radio in my vehicle...oh well commercials....commercials....yawn.

small town life.......

Whenever I think about all these small towns nearby I think about all the old buildings that are falling apart and how they need new buildings in their place...I like small town life it's calmer and more peaceful there's more charm to a small town than a huge city where you don't have the quiet ability to be unique like a small town is.

I really wish things could look better in all small towns with new businesses and lights down the main streets you know?...just have pretty small towns...cities are overcrowded anyhow!....small towns can be made better by beautification and new buildings with all kinds of businesses....they have their own charm.

I've always lived nearby these small towns and that's pretty much all I have ever known so when I think about that, I think about how they all need a re-vamp!...lol (I don't mean a a new vampire!!!) Haha I'm being funny this morning...lol....but you know, they need to be re-modeled and made new again with all kinds of things that are great for the local farmers and people in the towns supporting local businesses that know what they are doing and working hard to do these jobs right with proper training....

I like small town America and I believe it's a wonderful place to live, work, shop I've never lived in town actually but I do appreciate all it could/would have to offer....and you also wouldn't have to travel as far to shop and buy things on a whim...

you know just driving down main street and seeing people shopping in unique businesses and shops and just seeing that a small town has all that charm but still not a large city having it all but being small!!!....Haha..rhyming yet again....

I just don't like the cities...I can go visit them for a day or so and shop or look around but that's enough for me...I just don't feel comfortable in a city, I wouldn't want to live their forever too much traffic, noise, and construction...so I will have to always live nearby small towns or in the country side....

beautification is something that I think adds to small town charm after you have built it up and have it running....there just needs to be more professional well trained individuals who want to work and run businesses properly and also I think volunteers would be a great thing to have to join in and help work on all kinds of things in all kinds of areas nearby....volunteering is a great thing I think...

hello Fall 2014 !!!.....

I can't believe it's finally fall or autumn as they call it...seems as though it's taken forever to get here...it's 4am and I'm sitting here eating pumpkin seeds I bought at town the other day....haha!!!

my favorite things about Fall are:

leaves changing colors
pumpkins
pumpkin seeds
scarecrows
crows
candy corn
cooler weather
Thanksgiving
pop corn balls (I can make sugar free)
caramel apples (you can make these sugar free too..)
blankets
electric blankets

a piano song about fall I like.


love ya!

making cupcakes....

Been awake for a while this morning...kind of humid this morning and that makes it uncomfortable to sleep.....considering my day always starts early...I'm an early bird!....haha

this morning I just made cupcakes out of a cake mix in a box it was just a white cake mix with sprinkles in the mix and then I made a icing out of powder sugar, vanilla, butter and a few capfuls of milk.....then I put food coloring in it that made it orange for Fall....lol....I know I'm all about Fall....see told ya!...haha..

I like making cupcakes and cakes it's just another art form I think you can be very creative with colors, decorating them, and then there are sprinkles and you can theme cakes and cupcakes....

you can also make cupcakes sugar free, if you want both the cake batter and the icing to be sugar free...it's very simple and easy to make sugar free....something I think a lot of people would benefit from and appreciate...everybody deserves to be able to enjoy a piece of cake or a cupcake or 2....

I always use paper cupcake cups and I set them into the cupcake pan then pour the batter in...the cupcake paper baking cups are in all colors and designs and I really like that...creative! and eye catching....

I'm so good at this cupcake stuff I should put a business in making cupcakes!....haha...

love ya!

new county support vehicles good grief!.......

Went to town the other day and guess what I found?! That silly trail mix I have been looking for that my grandma bought me for Halloween when I was a little!....Haha! I found it at the same feed and supply store that she bought it for me at years ago....it's 1989 all over again...Lol!

While I was at town I noticed that the support vehicles you know like the ambulances, fire trucks at the station, and the cop cars all look really old now...they're all outdated looking...

I don't know why they can't have newer vehicles...it's as if they are still stuck in a time capsule!....lol......not to be making fun of them or anything like that don't get me wrong but good grief they need new vehicles....it's kind of funny actually but also very serious because they probably don't need old crap to drive!....

One time I saw some county cop cars go through town and they looked old and outdated and I thought how awful and sad that is because they need to keep those vehicles up and running because of all the problems and disasters that can and do occur sometimes in life.

I think they need ATVS probably to take out on calls and that could probably help their support teams and I'm sure as much land as there is to cover in the county they could use all the extra backup they could get...I wish things could get better in the county I go to all the time...

I know they need a lot of help and I wish that this area could all be updated!!!....Haha!...they need to get with the times!....lol....it just makes me giggle because you see the crap they have to drive and you think they are still driving this old crap?!! every other county I've been to further away seems to have newer vehicles and it's ridiculous...*eyeroll*

I wonder how all the support vehicles afford all that gas they have to drive with?...I'm sure that can get expensive I've always wondered about that....and how do they keep up all their vehicles for the support teams and keep them going they have to have maintenance people?....hope they know what they are doing!....they probably need new maintenance people too!....Haha....oh well..you know how things are in this area...

all their vehicles look old and tore up....kinda sad....they're not shiny and pretty at all....it's as though everybody else has progressed and they're still stuck in a time warp or something!!!...it looks like the 80's!!!....it might be the 70's too!....Haha!!!

choosing friends be careful....

One of the things I always think about is being nice to people...I always try to go out of my way to be nice and smile at people...I seem to like most people...I'm just nice anyway even if I sense that they do not like me or talk about me bad....lol....I just laugh smile and go on about my day anyway!

I just don't care what people say about me I know who I am and I know that there are many people out there who get jealous when you are not like them...when people cannot turn you into what they want you to be and make you apart of something stupid they are doing they get mad and jealous...

I really have a problem with women being jealous of me...I don't know why they are jealous of me but I tend to not have many girls who are friends I always get my heart broken by that...every girl needs a great friend to giggle with and go shopping with whenever you have the money!...Haha whenever that is!....

I have some great friends who are girls and they live far away/or I can't see them and that makes me rather upset but I know I get to see them sometimes and it makes me happy to know that I have them as friends at least...

when looking for friends you need to find friends who are good people and try to figure out if they will be lifelong true friends who will never try to hurt you or cause you harm and I do know that is very tough to figure out these days!

sure I have had friends who are girls who have betrayed me and made fun of me and laughed at me or called me this or that and that does hurt your feelings for a little bit but whenever you haven't seen them because they are jealous anyway of you who cares!

lots of people make mistakes and I do not judge people for wrong doings or for just being human but when someone tries to harm me or ruin my life I get very upset and I totally forget the people who I have trusted as a friend or even when family members try to ruin your life or upset you I forget them and I go on...it's always been very easy for me to forget people and drop people who have tried to destroy my life or harm...I do not care...who would ya know?!

always be very careful when trusting people or choosing people to be friends with because the world is an ugly place with good and bad but you just have to be very choosy when choosing friends an allowing them to be part of your life....

crafts....paints and polymer clay?....

There are a lot of people I wish I could see and go talk to all the time and have be a part of my life all the time everyday!...I miss a lot of people...I think life should be all about your friends and your family that really love and care about you...And that they are the most important thing in my life and I can't even see them....But I know I will get to hopefully sometime see them....

listening to the Sirius satellite music channels on the tv...I think those are really nice..no commercials! there's quite a few I like to listen to them...

been painting some pictures I like to paint..i think everyone needs to paint and just paint however they feel and whatever they want to say with painting something...you can find all kinds of paints like crafting paints and oil paints to paint with..

I like to find crafting paints and craft projects...I really look forward to finding unfinished Christmas decorations that are wood and not painted yet...I also like to make Christmas tree ornaments...

One thing I like to collect is all kinds of paints and I really need a new hot glue gun with some hot glue sticks! maybe I will get one for Christmas..

I'd like to try working with polymer clay and I think it would be something new to try with crafting and art....you bake the clay when you make a shape or whatever...you can make jewelry and figurines that are cute! I got to make a small bear out of that when I was a little girl with my grandma....and I thought it was neat.

I wish they had more crafting/art stores nearby that were closer to get to....dream dream dream...

love ya dad.

fall snacks..pumpkin seeds....

Eating healthy snacks is the best kind of snack....I finally found some David brand Pumpkin Seeds!!!....I always look at the labels of products and I know that I wanted some pumpkin seeds from the united states...I like to support my country!

since it's fall and all, (ya know me.... my favorite season I ramble on and on about!)...Haha! I like to eat pumpkin seeds for a snack...they're really good!...

Things I think are fall snacks are things like:
Pears
Apples
Nuts
seeds
corn nuts
Trail mixes

I wish the weather would get colder now.

random thoughts right now....(always about weather)..lol..
they say it will be a cold snowy winter I like to check up on the farmer's almanac all the time...I don't know if it really predicts the weather future but it seems as though it has been right almost everytime I read that thing....It's amazing how it works! I think I see a lot of hot chocolate in the future....Haha!

I really like to read the farmer's almanac...I know it's probably kind of boring to some people but I guess I'm boring anyway....lol...

maybe I will get to make a snowman in the snow this year?...haha

love ya

fall season.....

Church was nice yesterday...afterward I went to a store with my Grandma and found a scarecrow wall decoration for $1!!!....lol...it's just one of those cardboard decorations....but I think those are really neat....

I found some trail mix for a snack there at the store but I didn't like it...way too hot!!! so I'm going to have to throw it away or keep it and give it away...my stomach just can't tolerate that right now....not being wasteful just can't eat it...I hate being wasteful....

been wearing my cat pajamas they are Halloween themed fleece pajamas I bought 2 different pairs for $9/a piece a week or so ago....comfortable and the weather cooled off just enough to start wearing them around the house....they have black cats on them that look like my cat Pumpkin.....haha...

I also bought a bright orange Halloween pumpkin face t-shirt for $4!!!...I am a bargain shopper!...haha!!!...I don't care if it's cheap or whatever....if I like it I will wear it....who cares if it's not expensive....I can sleep in that t-shirt with my Halloween pajamas or just wear it around home or once to town or something....

found some of those dry Casserole brand beans to make beans and cornbread with...I like those...I think they are really good....they are really clean when you take them out of the package and wash them...you should always wash and soak dry beans like that before cooking them in the crockpot all day.. I like to put---1 can/ creamstyle corn, 1 can/green chilies in the cornbread mix and then bake it....really good for fall/winter season....I like beans...lol...

since it's Fall I've been cooking more and I made some turkey chili with a can of kidney beans in it and McCormick original chili seasoning....which is nice as well...

I think I'm going to try and buy some pumpkin seeds at the store to snack on they are seasonal right now since it's Fall....or some trail mix that has pumpkin seeds in it...lol.

I like the rainy cooler weather.

love ya!

cancer centers need help everyday....

One of the things that I know touches pretty much everyone's life is something bad called cancer....I hate cancer! I wish they had a cure for it and could eradicate cancer everywhere!

People need to know that there are great cancer centers everywhere in the country and I'm sure they need all the donations and support they can get with all the people in the country having been touched by cancer some way in their life....

So many people have trouble affording treatments and paying bills and I know that it is very stressful and difficult to get through someone in your family or even a friend being affected by cancer in some way and even worrying about them all the time then hoping and wishing you could help them pay for their bills....it always takes lots of prayer!

I think that cancer centers are something that we should always keep in our thoughts and prayers and keep thinking about how they need money and donations or even to go to cancer centers and hand out nice cards or send flowers to people there just to make them smile.....

because I know it is very overwhelming to get through and work through and I thank god every day for great cancer doctors who really care about people and help them with their diagnosis and surgeries because they are very special and important people..and intelligent people too! :)

so I would wish that everyone could always make sure that they think about the cancer centers, the cancer patients and the great cancer doctors and keep them in your prayers and think about how you can help out with donating money or donate your time in any way they would need you too if possible....

it makes me sad and I always think about ways we can all help out...It's just the right thing to do to help make the world a better place!

cancer centers need help everyday.

pet food....and other things..

Had to buy my dogs some dog food yesterday and some dog biscuits..I like to give them dog biscuits as a treat......I found the dog biscuits called Blue Dog Bakery and they are all natural and they have all kinds of flavors of the dog biscuits and one has peanut butter in it and they like it! They are a great size for a snack and they're good for them...

since the weather has cooled off I know that most all animals need to be eating a canned food product and a little dry food as well because as the weather cools off they need to eat more canned food because their bodies need to prepare for winter..so I have been buying some cans I got Gravy Train and they like the Bacon & Beef really well..

my cats always have canned food because I have read that cats actually need canned food all the time for their kidneys and dry food as well....I  think they need to have more all natural pets foods out there because I know that my cats are allergic to coloring in the dry food so I always buy them dry food with no coloring and I try to find all natural..

I buy Friskies canned food and I buy all natural dry food whenever I can find one so they won't be sick and therefore I don't have to take them to a vet for kidney infections or uti's or vomiting....buying all natural with no coloring costs me less in the long run because they don't get sick....they really love the shreds in Friskies canned food Chicken & Salmon is their favorite!!!...lol...

for some reason they love the Friskies Beef shreds canned food when it gets cooler weather.

Canned food is always safe to buy and save up because it will not spoil but things like dry food and biscuits and treats will spoil...so whenever people want to save up pets foods they can always keep canned pets foods for quite a while....that's what I like to do.

other random useless info...
I was just thinking about how when I was little my Grandma always had a Halloween candy treat bag for me and my brother when it was Halloween and she would buy trail mix at a feed store when they ordered it for the fall and people would buy it all the time well she bought it in a white bucket and she would put some of the trail mix in a cute Halloween treat bag and I always liked that....

she also made caramel red delicious apples...

it had pumpkin seeds in it(already shelled of course..lol) sesame sticks, peanuts, some kind of cheese sticks and it was seasoned....I always liked it...makes me think about Halloween at her house....haha...maybe sometime I will find some more of that trail mix...don't know what kind it was called or anything but it was good to eat for a snack...

love j.

cooking at home more....

I've been really tired and I have been sleeping in early morning since I have been sick.

sleep is good for you....and when you are sick you need to make sure you get enough rest to get better...Just like with any ailment or sickness you need sleep and healthy eating habits and flu shots!

something I think I will be getting in a week or 2 is a flu shot but I have to get over this bronchitis sinus infection thing first.

just tired....getting better I think? still sneezing.

nice that the weather has cooled off I like it to be kind of chilly.....sick of hot weather!

wanting to make some pumpkin bars with cream cheese icing so I'm going to try and buy a can of pure 100% pumpkin....you can make all this sugar free of course if you're diabetic or dieting...

hopefully now it has cooled off enough that I can start cooking at home a lot more since I can turn the oven on and not heat the house up too much...the oven heats the house up way too much in the summer because it doesn't cool very good in the house....so no cooking all meals at home until the weather cools off!!!....

cooking at home is something that I like to do....it's healthier and more fun to do so....I don't like fast food..boring and gross!

love ya.

flea & tick baths for pets....another day...

There's a leak in the bathroom that is on the other side of the wall of the washing machine....I just realized that's what it was the other day..So either there is a water line in the floor that is broken or there is a leak from a line in the wall connected to the washing machine where it drains or whatever? I don't know but the wall near the washing machine is mildewy and looks watery.

yesterday I found a full size termite crawling on the bathroom floor!..eek!...don't know what's going to happen with that but I get so tired of all this crapola all the time with this house!...We need better plumbers around here, pest control people, and handy man fixer uppers!...Haha!....It would be nice...There just doesn't seem to be enough really great plumbers, pest control, house repair type people....I always wonder why things never seem to get fixed right after you pay them to repair something it's in a mess later after they leave.....*eyeroll*

probably going to be a huge mess to have to put up with and try to fix.....it's always something with this old house...trying to find someone to work on something is near to impossible around this place...the phone books don't even have many people listed who work in these professions...and if they do you can never get a hold of them on the phone!...annoying.

wish there were more carpenters and people who do masonry, plumbing, and all that house repair stuff....dream dream dream....

I'm feeling a little better now, my medicine seems to be working and my albuterol inhaler that came from a prescription is the best thing for my asthma it helps me breathe....they're not good for everybody but if you have asthma they're ok to use....because you have to use them to breathe ok...

having asthma is ok...lots of people have asthma and suffer from it...sometimes it just comes and goes...mine bothered me when I was younger and it went away when I was in highschool and now it's back....it's annoying but I can control it with my inhaler and staying away from things that make me sneeze and cause me to wheeze like dust, mold, pollen, smoke...

I'm highly allergic to cigarette smoke or any kind of smoke and from things on fire like grassfires, or wood stoves...any kind of things on fire where there's smoke in the air....bad for my asthma.

keeping your pets bathed is something you need to continually do to help with your allergies/asthma as well....I gave all my pets a bath yesterday!...That silly dog got a bath and after I gave him a flea and tick bath he ran all around the place and ran in circles and barked!...Haha!...he makes me laugh all the time....I think it made him feel better...

seed ticks are really bad this year and he needs to have a bath every week and I'm going to have to buy him a new flea/tick collar so he won't have all those stupid seed ticks all over him! I just wash rinse him off with the water hose outside after I pour shampoo on his fur....it's all cute how he barks and runs in circles! I think he kind of likes a bath.

Pumpkin cat got a bath too yesterday in the house in his bath tub it's blue and he does not like to sit in his bath tub and get a flea/tick bath!!! He was meowing and getting mad and he kept acting like some body was about to dunk him in the water...cats don't like baths unfortunately!....lol...He looked like a little black baby cat when he finished his bath..

I run water in his bath tub...then I pour a little of the flea/tick shampoo on his back and then wash it all over him until it makes lots of bubbles everywhere and I make sure that's all covered to get him clean and then I take a small bowl and dip it into the water that is clear and clean then pour it over his fur to wash out the soap.......it's funny...he gets mad and his whiskers are soggy looking...haha...he's always mad when he gets a bath..but he's gotta have one!

it's a hassle giving them all a bath because they won't be still or they want to go do whatever they want to do they all have their own agenda ya know?...Haha! that doesn't include a bath!

love ya.

sick again...

Went to Doctor this morning....

I have bronchitis and asthma caused from my allergies!

Hate allergies and asthma. :(

Dust and mold, pollen....make me sick.

gave me an inhaler and cipro for it.

I think the inhaler will really help me with my coughing and congestion in my lungs.

I had asthma for a long time when I was younger and I think that is what has been making me cough so much lately, along with allergies.

church was nice yesterday....didn't get a newspaper for coupons forgot it!

I hope it rains more soon.

favorite board games.....

Installing computer software can be stressful....I'm pretty good at all computer know how...lol...I just get rather stressed when installing software because so many things can go wrong while installing the software and it can be time consuming and sometimes there can be glitches in the product you are installing....

I think keeping your computer up to date and cleaning the drive is very crucial to keep it up to date and safe from computer viruses....

It takes patience to work on computers and it takes patience in everything in life...Something I need to work on is patience and how life takes a lot of that!...Lol...I always like to tell myself that bad things will pass and good things are on the way...I think you have to just keep that in mind that nothing stays wrong very long...Haha!

random info...lol...saw some board games at the store and cards.

I remember a few of my favorites.

Old Maid
Go Fish
Monopoly
CandyLand
Chess
Pictionary
Hot Potato...Haha! still like that one too!
Canasta

and I like the Sim Farm computer game...it's old too I like all the older childish games likes these they seem to be more fun than the games now.... the new games now they have made are boooooring! yawn....

I also want to find the board game sold only at farming/feed supply stores called "Life on the Farm" it's about farming and farm living...I bet it's a good game!

love ya!

Jo-Ann's crafting stores are awesome!.....

Finally got to go to town yesterday early morning......The day before I had to help take my Grandparents to a doctor visit and I went to Jo-Ann's one of my favorite craft stores with my Grandma she went in and looked at fabric....she likes that store too as well as Hobby Lobby....just like me!

I bought a table top Halloween/Fall decoration that was a black cat with a yellow black striped hat on...it's sort of a wooden standing sign...has a piece of candy corn on the sign part--it was 40% off so it was just $6.

I found 5 wooden unpainted candy corns that I paid 49 cents/a piece for....so I could paint them and glue them on something to make a wall decoration...I painted them late yesterday with yellow,orange, and white paint...cute! I will probably hot glue them onto a dark colored ribbon and make a wall banner or something for Fall.

then I found a pair of Halloween socks with a black cat on them and once again they had candy corn on them!!!...Haha! I think candy corn is cute...it's real sweet.The socks were $4 and 40% off too! I collect things with black cats on them because of my cat.

So anyway i saw an orange pumpkin guy with a hat on and a brown and white gingham tie on that you hang on the wall and he looked like he was from the 20's or 30's era and he was cute..he was also 40% off and cost me $11 so i had to go back yesterday and get him to add to my fall d├ęcor collection because i wanted to make sure i could buy him while he was on sale and i used coupons!!! I like Jo-Ann's coupons!

so yesterday while there again i found 2 soap dispensers that looked like a big piece of candy corn and one that looked like a black cat!!! on sale 40% off and cost me $3/a dispenser...saving them for fall and Thanksgiving....they are re-usable and cute so i can refill them with liquid soap whenever the soap is used up.....recycle and they're way too cute to throw away!

they gave me more coupons at Jo-Ann's too! all 50% off an item in the store...

after that i knew i had to buy some good special cat food for my cats and some cat litter so i went by the Petsmart and i found 2 small bags of the cat food for $4/a bag and the cat litter was really cheap too 30 pounds for $10!!!...The cats love the dry food it gets rid of hairballs and they have really had a problem with that lately....i like Petsmart!

that silly dog got after a frog last night and i had to hide it from him so i put it somewhere else and he forgot about it...lol..i took his flea/tick collar off and his regular tie-up collar off last night because it was supposed to rain and he was running free last night...so he wouldn't get hung up on a fence or something...

love ya!

fabric.....

My Grandma likes to quilt she's very talented at quilting and I think about how much creativity it takes to complete a project like that!!! I have always sat at the table with her and watched her cut and sew these quilts and pick and choose fabrics...

Since I have always watched her quilt all these different patterns and colors of fabric, bolts of fabric have always been in my life and I have always been sort of oddly fascinated by looking at fabric to buy in my favorite craft stores....lol....

there are millions of different colors and patterns and designs on fabrics so whatever you choose for your project you are quilting or sewing is your own creation....sometimes fabric can be a bit pricey but not all of it is...It's so cool to me how some fabrics have pictures on them that look like actual pictures!...Really neat to me.

Still haven't found the right Halloween/Fall fabric yet to make my pajamas with....but I'm still looking...Fabrics are also seasonal so they have seasonal fabrics at certain holidays or right before and during the holiday you are looking for....so Halloween/Fall, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, summer, spring, winter...it goes on..you just have to look for them and the patterns that you sew things with are fairly inexpensive...

love ya, j.

help animals!!!....

One of my favorite things is taking care of animals and making sure they are safe...I really like all animals and it makes me very sad when I think of all the animal abuse that takes place in the world and all around here! ;(

I hear about animal abuse on the news that is local or in a newspaper and it makes me not only mad but sad and upset!!! I really wish that all the animal shelters had enough money to operate on and enough money and the equipment and the food to help take in more animals and fight animal abuse....I know that the counties around where I live probably don't have much money so when I think about that it makes me wish that I could get out there and help them.

I've always secretly wished that I could be out there saving all the animals and making sure that the people who abuse them or mistreat them are in trouble for what they have done..

Because like I always say animals are really innocent and they don't have a voice to tell you they are sick or mistreated or abused and it makes me cry and it makes me so mad at the people who do those things to animals!!!

Animals love you no matter what goes on and they just keep loving you and when I see or hear about people abusing them I want to kick their butts and makes sure they all know that they cannot ever get away with hurting or abusing animals...

It just makes me want to make sure that all the local agencies nearby all have the proper training and the money to get in check with the rest of the larger areas that have all the things they need to fight animal cruelty and abuse!..because I know that they just don't have money for that I think!!! it's sad!.

I just want the animal shelters and animal control to all have the proper funding and not let animal abuse or cruelty go by the way side ya know?...We need more people out there working on this with the money to get the job done!!!

It seems like sometimes animals are just tossed aside and forgotten and they are important too!!! It doesn't really need to be all about people all the time when they have hearts and souls as well...I would save all the animals in the world if I could do that...so while I know I cannot do that I know that every good thing I do locally will help out in my area..

I'm sure they can always use more food! well, probably lots of animal food for the shelters and the animal rescues as well...I also think that they could probably use more donations and fund raisers to help support them...There's got to be a way to help out...I don't even know what I can do to help out in the local counties near me but sometime I hope I will have the opportunity to help them with money and all that jazz!!!

I just wish I could help out all the animal rescues locally and the animal shelters/animal control because I know they need funding and everything to get proper care and food to those animals in need..I just think about all my pets and I start to think about how much I love and care for them and that they are a blessing to my life and make me laugh and giggle all the time.

so when I think about how happy my pets make me when I laugh, when I'm upset, I think about all the people who have pets and need money and food for their pets when they don't have much money or they are busy working all the time and how maybe someday they would like to get a pet and they could have one with extra money that is there or to donate food and chewies to them or even cat litter that stuff is needed!!! fundraisers are good... ;)

I just think I want everyone to think more about animals because they are a blessing to everyone from above because I know they are to my life.

love, julie
