I think it only appropriate to start off with a scary picture…or is it a scary thought found only in the nightmare state?

Welcome to Facebook Funnies…BOO!

Let’s start with a few Halloween inspired funnies…”Shall we?”

20131031-080029.jpg
Yep…it is time to go back to being a Red Head!

As I close…the Halloween portion of Facebook Funnies I wanted to leave you with a thought! What if ….

20131031-082251.jpg
I don’t know what is scarier…trying to remember to turn the clocks back or Maxine being 20…again!

Tonight as you usher your sweet monsters, princesses and Jedi around the dark-shadow-filled streets ponder this…

Peach State says: Wow…I Slept In!

20131030-100235.jpg

Here we are again…Hubby’s day off! Shh! He is still sleeping!

I woke up about the time my youngest walks out the door for the bus. “No! He did not miss the bus!” My 20 year old son has been getting up with the youngest on Wednesdays for the past three months so that I could sleep in and not disturb hubby when I got up to wake up the bus rider. I really tried to go back to sleep…honestly I did but finally crawled out about 20 minutes later. So in reality I slept in.

Wow…I Slept In!”

I accomplished a few things this morning as quietly as I could. Hubby just started moving around so my day has officially started. I will have the chance to sleep in two more days next week…“To bad I have doctor appointments and a dog grooming planned for those days!. I really need to pay closer attention to these details! Hubby’s coffee/ espresso is in the process of being made, so speaking of details, I need to cut this short! See you tomorrow for some Facebook Funnies!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: ADHD Brain In Overdrive

20131029-090745.jpg

Okay, my mind is pretty much multi-tasking on it’s own today. I must admit…it is a bit exciting to experience this type of speed and thought process this early in the morning. And no!…I have not overloaded myself with Red Bulls or Espresso Shots!

ADHD Brain In Overdrive!

I was surfing the web, while waiting for my youngest to make his exit for school, for updates on the 2014 VBS. One thing led to another and my mind almost exploded. A Tug-of-War between my organizational hemisphere and my creative hemisphere began as thoughts and ideas exploded faster than I could keep up!

“COFFEE BREAK!”

I decided to take a few minutes, before continuing, to let you in on my out of control Brain.. With the workout my brain is getting I wish it could result in burning outrageous amounts of calories. Even “Precious Princess” has wandered around and around and has just now…laid down on the floor at my feet. Oh how I wish I could bottle this and save it for those I’m-too-lazy-to-do-anything-days! You would think I raided the Halloween Candy Stash…but that is not the case. “How do I know?…I haven’t bought my Halloween Candy yet!”

“OOO, another idea!”

I had better grab some more notebook paper and another divider, labeled ideas, for my VBS Notebook! ( …and another pile of papers for the other abstract thoughts and ideas running through my head!)

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: No Fiber-Protein Bar Today!

20131028-074706.jpg
“No Fiber-Protein Bar Today!”
The two Cranberry-Walnut topped baby-sized muffins sit in wait for the main event…A disappearing act!
The caffeinated tower stands prepared to assist in the washing-down-of-the-day-old-muffin-teasers.

20131028-075241.jpg
“Well that didn’t take long!”

Precious Princess, laying at my feet, feel asleep waiting for a pinch or two. “Oops! My bad!”

I had a visitor this weekend and based on the sounds drifting in from the laundry room I think I know why. “Not to mention the fact that I just removed the load of shirts and pants I put on wrinkle release when I first came down this morning!” My 23 year old arrived, back at the old homestead, about 7:40PM Saturday for a visit. “Between you and me I think he came to pick up the rest of his bedroom supplies.” He has found a job [ insert cheers from a roaring crowd] and will find out his schedule in a couple of days. I have been told he will leave about lunch time today and I will not see him until Thanksgiving! (Stop your laughing…he was being serious and did not see the humor in that statement!) While we are in a humorous frame of mind…I recently spoke with my oldest and reminded him to message me his address. He asked why…”So we can send you a Christmas card!” (Okay…enough laughter!) I understand his limitations and travel is not something he can readily afford. Oh yeah, he is moving to San Diego in about two weeks! I gave the normal morsels of “Motherly Wisdom” in hopes that something would sink into that twenty-something brain of his.

Wow! My stomach is growling already! Note to self…a more filling and nutritious breakfast is best especially is you did not eat dinner the night before! “Don’t ask!” I guess I will have a “Fiber-Protein Bar” a little later this morning! I can hear the pitty-patter of raindrops splattering the scattered leaves on the ground. Now I have a chill… Do I go and cover up and take a rest or find something else to pre-occupy my time and warm up through movement? I guess I could find something else to do! Great, after a little thought I have quite a few things to do this dreary-rain-soaked Monday! What are your plans today? I hope you have more than two tiny muffins to energize you!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: It’s Friday and I __________!

20131025-130318.jpg“It’s Friday and I _________!”

Now that is a loaded question! How would you fill in the blank? Me, well I would put in any of the following:
Am tired…
Am dragging…
Am caught up…
Am in pain…

Unfortunately I will have to wait until next week to get any relief. “Oh joy!”

So for now my feet are up and wearing socks. A blanket will be placed upon them soon after I get my comfy clothes on. My 20 year old son just fixed my lunch and brought it to me. “I must be dying or he is a wonderful son…or he wants something!” ( yep…he wants to take my car later this afternoon to play extreme frisbee.).

Time for some meds…and then apply an ice pack.

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Caffeinated Facebook Funnies

20131024-074712.jpg
With my “caffeinated companion” by my side I enter the world of humor. Wow…it is way too early for the semi-dramatic tone which tells me I need to slow down and take another sip! “Ahh!” This week was filled to the brim with coffee pics so feel free to grab yourself a cup of your favorite hot/warm beverage and enjoy a “Caffeinated Facebook Funnies” !

20131024-075327.jpg
I went to the kitchen to refill my….SQUIRREL!

I hope you found something to tickle that funny bone of yours! Make sure you pass the “funny” along!
And FYI…Due to my hubby’s day off schedule I have made the decision to move “Facebook Funnies” to Thursday. That way I will not be late in posting Facebook Funnies! No…really! I am being serious! I was told last night, again, that they missed it yesterday! Have a great day and…

Peach State says: Have You Checked The Weather App?

20131022-101542.jpg

“What? A girl is trying to dream here!”

Have You Checked The Weather App?

20131022-102051.jpg
I have and I check it most every morning. I have been a dutiful friend and have sent screen pics to another friend who craves the cooler temperatures.

Now …Take into consideration that Atlanta is south of where I live and we run a little cooler because of the lack of asphalt-covered-surfaces…
Did you see the lows…”OOO”…they are coming…Low Temps!. “M-M-M!” I can taste the Mulled Cider/ Hot Chocolate/ Espresso Mocha just thinking about it! ( please choose one of the three mentioned drinks, available in my cozy kitchen, to share when visiting!) The chill is definitely in the air this morning…The misty rain has saturated the surfaces as it gives the fallen leaves a moist shimmer. The gray filled sky adds to the ambience completing the cooling Fall day. The incredible blue skies and color-filled-trees is the perfect day for being outside…but today is a day for indoor activities.

20131022-103440.jpg
Now that is my new favorite color…“October”…”I love that color…it’s my favorite!” (inside joke!)
My wish, in all of this, would be that my rocking chair on my porch had this view! Can you imagine seeing this picture everyday and what about with snow laden branches? I think my incredibly wonderful hubby would build me a fireplace, to rock next too, if I had this view!

Well enough dreaming for the day…time to get ready to run errands. “How’s that for getting back to reality?”

“May you cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: Friends Don’t Let Friends Eat The Whole Piece Of Cake

20131021-133357.jpg

So there we were…

“Mutual Cat Loving Friend” and I managed to follow our third Sunday schedule, with just a couple of kinks thrown in, and still find time to head to our favorite michevious-giggle-filled-caffeine-loaded-coffee-scented hangout…otherwise known as Starbucks. I had a FREE food purchase on my card and offered to share. I said, “You must understand that this means less calories for both of us…and that is a good thing…right?” This is the response I got from “Mutual Cat Loving Friend”…

“Friends Don’t Let Friends Eat The Whole Piece Of Cake!”

We giggled together and then decided it would make a great blog title…and decided to share a cranberry loaded Oatmeal Cookie. So this was just for you “Mutual Cat Loving Friend”!

We enjoyed our time a little too much before I realized that I was late for one of those kinks. (A meeting with the Pastor’s wife about VBS) This meeting went longer than normal and I had to excuse myself, once again, to rush to an earlier than normal sound check. Three major events squeezed into a period of 2, very short, hours. I must say that this was not a typical Sunday as it started with my 20 year old jumping out of a plane from 15,000 ft. …but that is another story!

Today I have done most of what I need to do…with the minor exception of tonight’s basketball practice and Christmas music practice.

Yep…Just another normal day!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

Peach State says: 2 Down & 2 To Go!

20131018-074404.jpg
The countdown continues it’s active spiral.

2 Down & 2 To Go!…

The surprise news came three nights ago when my 23 year old announced he would be moving to a new city…2 hours away! He has a job interview, Monday, for a position that might hold him over, financially, until he finds a computer-geek-video-tech job. He began the dump-truck-cleaning of his room yesterday as the washer and dryer twisted and tumbled the multiple loads of clothes from his floor. He plans to leave about noon today! “I don’t thinks he said bye to his dad…but knowing my son he will call as he drives down the highway.” (For those concerned about his lodging in this new city…my son will be staying with my parents! It is a good thing they all get along!)

My hubby and I talked about this and have come to the conclusion that our 23 year old did not want to be here when our 20 year old leaves for Army Basic Training…anytime in the next 2-3 weeks. Why? “Because he would have to do the things the 20 year old always did for the family and house!”

Hold everything…that means 3 Down and 1 To Go!!!

The funny thing is the fact that the boys do not realize the amount of work it takes, when they are home, is lessened substantially when they are absent.

Translation:

Cooking for three…instead of five.
No fighting over the moving of laundry…money saved on utilities.
Less garbage to take out…
Cleaning up behind three people…
Buying for three…
Pleasing only three when making dinner…

You get the picture!

I am going to save money and time! But I did think of a couple of drawbacks. The putting up of the Christmas Tree and bringing the multiple boxes of decorations up from the basement. (Quit shaking that finger… I am not lifting anything, YET!) I also realize that there will be one child left here…”I hope he can lift those boxes!” There will be a “Honeymoon Period” of sorts when the youngest is the only child. I just hope he does not revert back to the the selfish-lack-of-energy-I-did-not-hear-you-unknowing child we have been blessed with recently. (Did I just say that out loud? Yes I did!)

For those of you who know me, personally, please pray for us as the next few weeks will be a unique transition period. I must confess there may be tears and crankiness involved…sooo, please be patient with me! “Oh, and I will probably have a 13 year old in tow!” To be a mother with a full house to a mother of one will take some getting use to seeings how it has been a full house for 24 years. I was only a mother of one for 5 1/2 months before finding out I was pregnant with #2. I am sure I will find numerous upsides to only having one child but that will be another post.

20131018-090826.jpg
Nope! We’re not there yet…but soon! As a matter of fact…there is a weekend coming up in December when there will be NO children in the house! “Hmmm?! I guess I should make some plans!” ( snicker…snicker!)

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

20131016-101942.jpg

The “Giggle Break” is over and time for me to attempt to stir the slumbering troops from their cozy coverlets. My hubby’s day off is quickly marching along while he sleeps so if I want any time shopping with him today I had better wake him up!

I hope your tickle bone was entertained today…share a smile and…
