Pure Randomness...........

I bet that title grabbed your attention and that's exactly what this post is, just a whole lot of randomness........

Last week. some of Dad's dear friends brought their Blue Tick Hound by to pay him a visit.  Dad's words to describe Molly were, "she's something else."  There's just nothing like a little pet therapy to do the heart good. Thanks Dottie!

Good grief, what is this world coming to?  Why on earth did Target, a favorite store of many, have to jump on the bandwagon of allowing transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice. I know why, because Satan is alive and well and we as Christians had better take a stand, QUICK!

MY youngest brother is here for a visit from Iowa.  I usually refer to him as my "baby" brother but since he is 51 years old now, I think youngest probably sounds best.  He comes 2-3 times a year for a long weekend and spends a lot of time with our Dad, which is a special time for the both of them.

When we moved into our new house I bought myself a new mixer.  I debated about getting a Kitchen Aid and just could not get excited about it.  It weighs a ton!  I've always been a fan of Bosch products and ran across the Bosch Compact Mixer on the internet and decided it was just what I needed.  I did not get the many attachments that are available, all I wanted was for it to mix cakes and such.  I love it!!!  As you can see from the picture, it has a completely different shape than a conventional mixer.  I doubt it weighs 5 pounds and takes up a small amount of space.  So, if you are in the market for a new mixer, you might want to check it out.

I read this on a sign or elsewhere recently: "What if Christians had their Bible in their hand as much as they had their cell phones in their hands?" Ouch! I might need to ponder this a while and then I might need to act upon it.  ~I'm not joking~ How 'bout you?

Hubby and I are headed to Georgia the middle of next week to see one of his sister's  and her husband.  We always have alot fun with them and they are always such a great host and hostess.  And, they live in an area where there is never a lack of something fun to do.

 Oh, my goodness, I have read and heard about both of these stores but have never had the privilege of going to them until last week while I was in Williamsburg.  Oh, my goodness! I'm in love with both but regretfully, there are none even close to me. Bah!  I was as excited as I am in a ladies boutique when I went in Trader Joe's. ~ laugh~  It takes buying groceries to a whole new level!  And, HomeGoods, well, what can I say, they just have way too much gorgeous home decor and very good prices.

Until next time..................

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Good morning! LOVE random, lol. First, that mixer does look interesting. Might have to look into that. And then, interesting thought on the cell phones and the bibles....though I do know many who their Bibles ON their cell phones and can read whenever they get the opportunity. I don't like reading things that small though, lol. And finally, you just listed two of my most favorite stops. We never get through a week-end without a stop at Trader Joes, and Home Goods is a favorite for sure, most times just to browse. The only other place I am at more often is Joannes, and ok maybe Alberstons, lol. Ok, have a good week-end Lea!

  2. My daughter works at Homegoods and it is a dangerous place to be around. Too many pretty things.

  3. We were at Trader Joe's just yesterday...also made a Costco run and Fresh Thyme Farmer's Market, which is a Midwest based organic grocery. You would love it... Marshall's and Home Goods are within three miles of our home. I know, dangerous... We have already decided that Target won't get any of our consumer dollars. Any pervert can say anything to further his/her agenda.

  4. That's a sweet picture of your dad with the therapy dog. Just love things like that.

    As for the news about Target, the world has gone mad. Truly. Maranatha, Come, Lord Jesus!

  5. Bye bye Target (not that we have visited there---as it is over an hour away)....the world has gone mad...well...America has. Great photo of you dad...happy weekend, friend.

  6. Enjoyed your randomness. That mixer looks great. Yes wouldn't be nice to see the Bible in people's hands rather than the phones. I love shopping at Trader Joe's!
    Hope your weekend is going well.

  7. I really enjoyed your randomness although I'm a week behind in seeing it. If I baked more, I think that would be the perfect mixer. I'm still using a little hand mixer because I just can't justify anything else. I haven't been in a Trader Joe's but absolutely love Home Goods. Wondering why we can't seem to get these neat stores in Louisiana.


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!
