I just love waking up in a clean house! I've been in a cleaning mood all week...throwing out stuff, reorganizing, vacuuming, clearing off surfaces, going through old magazines... Now I have to keep it clean (and help my family remember to clean up after themselves as well!) It's been relatively cool (because of all the recent rains) so we've been hanging out a lot in the house. It's working out well. Today, I'll make chicken and sausage gumbo!

Mosquitos and Frogs Everywhere!!! It rains every day!!! My yard is SO wet! In the evening when you walk outside, you get attacked by mosquitos! The planes fly over occasionally spraying for them but there is so much water that new mosquitos are hatched out each day! And frogs, whew!!! Little ones, huge onees...I have never seen so many! I hope they're all hungry and help out on the mosquito populations!! It's rained for weeks on end now....... Rain, rain, go away!!

A few weeks ago, my dryer died. It was over 20 years old so I needed to get a new one. I didn't get around to getting one until last week and it arrived today. I had forgotten about washaterias. I felt so naive the first time we took our clothes to one to be washed. Wow, it was expensive! And the dryers didn't dry the clothes like I dry them at home. After spending lots of quarters in the numerous washers and dryers along with the snack and candy machines, I was out about $30. Then, we had to do it again last week (the same day I bought the new dryer!) The one thing I do enjoy about doing clothes at washaterias is that after they're done, I fold them and put them back in the baskets to bring home. That doesn't happen as quickly at home! It's nice to have a dryer back!!!!!'s the little things that make me happy!

Happy Birthday to me!!! Yep, I'm a cancer! I'm blessed to be healthy, happy, and grateful for the family and loved ones around me. Life's good!

Woke up to a thunderstorm, had an uninterrupted lunch with a friend, got nice cards/gifts, and ended the day with family. I had a nice day.

Back from Vacation! I had a wonderful week recently! My family and I went to visit my best friend on the East Coast. We had cool weather too there, as it's so hot and humid where I live! Great company, great food and great time!
