Peach State says: Oh Happy Day!

20140419-223232.jpg

Today we, my hubby, 2 sons and I, traveled to the military base where my now 21 year old is stationed. He has 2-12 hour passes this weekend!!!
Oh Happy Day!

We left the homestead at Zero-Dark-Thirty…sorry it was 4:43 am and it was still dark! We drove the endless expanse of rain soaked roads in the wee hours and as the sun began to rise, behind the clouds, we reached the main security gate. Following the signs to the meeting place we joined a group of people who shared the same desire…

After a short briefing we were released and walked out of the double doors onto the covered deck leading to the parking lot…There they were!

The formation of soldiers in parade rest was a beautiful and heart pounding moment. Anxious family members moved to better catch a glimpse of their elusive soldier. The final order was yelled over the whispering of family members and the soldiers moved…We moved down the steps and scanned the uniformed group and there, coming directly to us, was our son…
( sorry I just got a bit choked up just thinking about it!)
He went directly to my hubby and gave him a hug and led us to the parking lot. Once there he turned and caught my overly proud and motherly gaze and said “I Love You!” We hopped in the truck and our day began! The stories were many and filled with sound effects galore! “I have missed these sound effects!”

Tomorrow we will return to the base and pick him up again. 12 more hours with him…ending tomorrow at 8pm. Needless to say we have already planned our return trip in May for graduation.

I apologize for not being focused on writing…I have been a bit preoccupied on seeing him and packing…and Easter! I am tired but very happy!

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

It’s All Theirs?. I think an extra space would be appreciated!
Happy Tax Day everyone!

I am so glad not to be scurrying around, like a chicken with it’s head cut off, panicking over this deadline! Instead, I am stuck at home…without a car…

I promise to work very hard to find something to do. It won’t be that hard to do seeings how I have not been home much for the past two weeks! I could begin packing for our trip to see our son in the Army…oops! Started that yesterday!

Yes, we are very excited to see him. He has 2-12hour passes and we haven’t see him in a few months.

I did quite a bit yesterday and managed to walk more steps than my hubby who worked all day…wait a second…I worked all day too! Lol!!!

The rainy morning will facilitate a slower pace to start the day but, I should be breaking the sound barrier later today! It will be beneficial to focus on something other than a yelling teenager. (Not a good start!)

Precious Princess is sleeping soundly at my feet and my breakfast espresso is half gone…of course I will have seconds this morning. (Insert chuckle here)

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

Peach State says: Cough, Cough, Hack, Hack…

20140322-013457.jpg
Readjusting my pillow…
Taking a sip or three of water…
Blowing my nose…
Popping a cough drop in my mouth…

I’m awake thanks to my sleep disturbing Cough, Cough, Hack, Hack…

Sipping hot liquid now trying to soothe my throat in hopes of returning to bed!

Peach State says: Who Needs A Facebook Funnies Day?

20140321-074235.jpg
If I know one thing I know this…Life throws you a curve by letting the squirrels out in random bursts! It has been a week filled with ups and downs and I am so ready for a few giggles…Who Needs A Facebook Funnies Day?
Grab a cup or three of coffee and join me! I may need more due to posting is a bit difficult this morning due to cursor placements!

I don’t know about you but I don’t do before and after selfies…

20140321-074741.jpg

Sanity anyone?

20140321-075505.jpg
Supply or Demand?

20140321-075808.jpg
When it comes to taste…I guess there is something for everyone!

20140321-075935.jpg
I believe I would be finding a hiding place before the Coffee Maker beeped!

With all of this talk about coffee I guess this is normal…

20140321-081944.jpg

I hope these Facebook Funnies brought a smile to your face…if they didn’t then you probably just experienced the following! Have a great day anyway!

Peach State says: Please Stop The Hamster Wheel!

20140308-080846.jpg

All day…Every day…GO, GO, GO!

Please Stop The Hamster Wheel…I want off or at least a nap!

I am off again this morning and will come home and feed the staving teenager before heading back out to a show, for my business, about 3:00!
My multi-tasking brain has not let me down yet…it is spewing smoke from time to time. “Probably sending up smoke signals for help or a tranquilizer shot!”

Time for a refill!

20140308-081655.jpg
Now if I could just find the bathroom door on this wheel I would be great!

Peach State says: After My Week I Deserve Some Facebook Funnies!

20140301-071130.jpg

It has been a week of non-stop-chaotic-running-with-a-dash-of-beat-the-clock type of activity. Something everyday! I was so focused on the things that had to be done I forgot what day it was until my youngest got home yesterday! But that’s another story…After My Week I Deserve Some Facebook Funnies!

How about a couple of Straight-Jacket Award contenders:

20140301-071722.jpg
That was a close call…for a second I thought she was asking which method he preferred!

20140301-072014.jpg
This makes perfect sense! Winner!!!

A new award presentation calledShould Have Known Better:

20140301-072228.jpg
Maybe this Award should just be called“DUH!”

A favorite of mine this week has become a mantra of sorts with another friend…I will share if you promise to laugh!

20140301-072500.jpgThank You Mrs. Lecter!

I am missing something..fluffy and filled with love….

20140301-072750.jpg
That’s not what I meant…sounds like my friends are having the same type of week.

Trying again…

20140301-073026.jpg
Okay…so the fluffy concept did not work!

How about cleaning the house…

20140301-073130.jpg
See…a nice Fuzzy Feeling…(“Could you pass the Kleenex?”)

20140301-073428.jpg
Ah…the smell of a clean house!

20140301-073512.jpg
And I still am cleaning up after all these years!

Time to just relax at home…

20140301-073649.jpg
“Honey the Balloon Animals are out again!”

20140301-073801.jpg
Uh oh…maybe he should reconsider relaxing at home!

Well I have saved the Blog Worthy Award Winners for this next section…Can you guess the theme?

20140301-073958.jpg
(Just thinking out loud…I think I will have to make one of these for several members of my family!)

20140301-074444.jpg
Yep…this is me…is there a cure? MORE COFFEE!

And drum roll please….Blog Worthy Award Winner:

This is the View From My Window!

Front window….The moon is still a visible orb in the morning sky!

And in the back…

20140224-081026.jpg
The pink glow of the sunrise begins…
Just a few moments later I took this…

Time for another cup of coffee and the making of the grocery list!

Peach State says: One Of My Favorite Things!

20140211-081427.jpg
One Of My Favorite Things…is sitting at the table just off my kitchen with the window blinds wide open watching the falling snow! It has been falling for just a short time. The fluffy flakes are quietly filling in the rain soaked area on the ground as a slushy mix is replaced by a pillowy white covering.

20140211-082303.jpg
The best is yet to come! The weather personalities in our area have forecasted an ice storm tonight and tomorrow. “Can you say goody?” ( please repeat the previous question using a sarcastic tone!!!)
I have had many experiences with “ice storms” and by the time I was married knew how to survive one. The longest and most memorable was in Washington State…I saw the pattern and prepared! Others were not as lucky! By the time is was dark I had my hubby home from work, 4 hours early, and food on the stove with the fire going. Hubby was thrilled to walk in to a cozy fire especially when he realized the power was out. “It stayed out for almost 45 hours!” Ahh…memories!!!

Once this event is over I will share more pics with you! “I know my friends will post some great pictures on Facebook.” (Hint…Hint…) For now I will sit back and sip on my “Oh So Wonderful Cup of Coffee Espresso” and enjoy this quiet and serene snowfall.

That didn’t last long…the youngest is up! LOL!

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

Grab a donut and a cup of coffee and enjoy a few of my favorite “Friday Facebook Funnies!

20140207-120054.jpg

20140207-121443.jpg
Can’t I do just one thing alone?

20140207-122052.jpg
Now that’s a thought! Then while they are learning about these bouncing bundles of joy I can sleep!

20140207-122651.jpg
Sure wish I was ambidextrous.

20140207-122801.jpg
Anyone have anymore questions?

20140207-123011.jpg
Well I guess they could take turns watching the kids too! Fantasy completed!!

20140207-123327.jpg
We both struck out!

20140207-123620.jpg
To that I would reply…”Are you sure that’s not menopause? Lol”

20140207-124251.jpg
