Miscellany Monday

I am so excited about participating in Carissa's "miscellany monday's."  It's always fun to occasionally be random, especially for me, since I'm seldom random.  I'm what you might call, highly organized and structured in most everything I do,so this gets me "out of my box" and that is good for me. Enjoy!

1. I was so pleased with the flowers that a local floral designer did for me.  They were placed in our church this morning in honor of my Dad and in memory of my husband's Dad. I even thought they had a "masculine" look to them.

2. I will never understand as long as I live why folks see the need to use ugly four lettered words in their conversation or writing.  Just a sign to me of a very "shallow mind."

3. I am so thankful for women, such as the two pictured below, that the Lord has given me the privilege and honor to know. I want to be just like them when I grow up. ~big chuckle~

4. I'm just "plum excited" about my sweet potato vines and the way they have grown up the trellis'. I've never tried this before and didn't really know if they would grow up them, but as you can see, they did.  They make such a dynamic showing!

5. I'm so thankful to be married to a man that has truly been the greatest Father to our two children and is now a great Poppa to our two Grandchildren.

6. I'm grateful to serve a God that has never given up on me, forgives me, loves me unconditionally and is ALWAYS there for me!

7. I can hardly wait for this next week-end. My classmates and I will be celebrating our 40th class reunion.  I just do not feel old enough to have been out of high school 40 years. Yikes!!

Haven't Senior Pictures changed in the past 40 years??????
A happy, happy week to every one and a big thank you to Carissa for hosting Miscellany Monday among her many other duties.  What a gal!

  1. Those flowers are gorgeous-and I see what you mean about them being masculine too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Lovely pictures!

    I love the senior high one.

    And I totally agree about the words. Totally.

    Have a blessed Monday.

  3. I agree with the four letter words. HORRIBLE and unnecessary.

    Hope you have a great day!

  4. So glad you joined in today! The flowers are so beautiful. I can't understand why people think they have to use ugly words in their writings either. Really turns me off. WOW, 40 year reunion, how fun! Lovely sweet potato vines!

    Have a blessed Monday!

  5. So glad to see your randomness! I love the flowers! They are beautiful! And I am with you with people using the "words". I don't get it either. And of course Being thankful to God. We didn't deserve him, yet he sent his son to die for us. What a blessing that is:)



  6. loved all the miscellany!! It is fun and good to step out of the box sometimes....:)

    Those flowers are them!

    My MIL just went to her 50th reunion and had so much was funny to hear her all giddy and talk about all her classmates (in a good way of course ha)

    I agree with the four letter word totally unnecessary!

    Have a great day

    Have fun at your reunion

  7. I love your high school picture!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog... I enjoyed reading your random post!

    I also agree with the bad language. Although, I have occasionally let one slip out, I do not like it and I especially can't understand how people use it so casually in conversation, without any purpose whatsoever!

    I would love to see posts and pictures of your grandchildren!

    Have a good day!

  8. The flowers are beautiful! I agree with the ugly language, I really cannot understand why people want to speak like that, it is not becoming at all! 40 years, that is amazing! This year is my 20th high school reunion and I can hardly believe it, the time has flown by! I am missing the festivities, though. We are traveling to Idaho the week before for my grandfather's memorial, can't afford to make the trip twice! :) Have a blessed week. I have been keeping up on you, just haven't had a lot of time to comment!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
