I dont think we are in Kansas anymore TOTO !

We are presently having a little wind storm , being on an island in the Atlantic Ocean , we are use to hazardous weather ,today is one of those days . Usually storms don't bother us much unless the power goes out and even then we are ususally prepared ,winter storms where when you open your front door and a wall of white greets you is nothing new , I have in the past had to make a hole in a wall of snow to get out my front door to reach my shovels , although this does not happen all the time ,it happens . The weather I am talking about today is a wind warning where when you see a place called the wreckhouse (this is where trains were frequently blown of the tracks ((when we had trains ))and transport trucks lifted off the highway) when you see the warnings on tv for this area , it is going to be a bumpy day ,although it is about 2 1/2 hours away we still get our share .
I put away all my patio furniture and outside planters etc a few weeks ago but left part of a swing up to dry ,BIG MISTAKE , today it was like a sail on a ship and blew straight across and over down some 15 feet below . I of course ran out trying to salvage what I could and the back patio door which is screwed in with steel hinges was swaying back and fourth and one swoop and it was ripped from the side of the patio , now this is screwed in and safety latched , it just tore the hinges apart and bang down it comes , it is about 4 feet high by six and really heavy ! At that point my voice in my head says UH , Hello , get back inside ,which I did ,wet ,cold and windblown ,,,,,shivers,,,,, it is settling down a little now but expected to be rowdy through the rest of day and night , I think I will start teaching the dogs to use kitty litter for days like today , If you look up and think you see santa and reindeers in the sky a little early, dont worry it is just me and the three poochies I had to walk ,we got caught in a bit of wind LOL

much to say about nothing ! :}

The time just seems to be speeding on by , you wake up ,do what ya need to and ,,,,,,boom,,,,, time to wake up and do what ya need to do and ,,,,,boom ....... and .......see the pattern here , seems like life is on fast forward and there is always something to do . Everyone I talk to says the same thing , not much time for playing ,hopefully things will change and everyone who needs it will get a breather soon. I dont wanna be a grown up anymore TEE HEE

It has been a strange October as far as weather wise here ,hopefully the snowmakers will have pity on us this year and send it all out in the ocean or maybe somewhere they need water LOL.:} I am not a gambler but 10 to 1 odds that it will snow sometime in the next week or so , I cannot remember a Halloween here without snow , or drizzly slush , just enough to freeze the little monsters begging for candies at your door LOL LOL LOL .Speaking of which,,,,candy ,,,yum ,,,my sweet tooth is hankering for some Halloween treats I have in the pantry , hiden on the top shelf under some heavy stuff , honestly ,I have to put it out of the way or the trick or treaters will go empty handed .:{ I smelllllllll chocholate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it keeps telling me (sweet tooth), and I have cut down drastically on my sweets , I have to once in awhile ,so I still crave it like Mad.

I am going on another cleaning twister this weekend , steaming carpets (3 dogs), furniture, washing walls , moving out freezers , , I have never seen so many dustbunnies , I do it all the time but when you have animals ,you have to do it more often (goodie for me ,,,,Sarcasm is better in person ,it is easier to pick up on ) I know I have written about the cleaning etc before but it is what I do and even though I do it it never seems to stay done , I feel like a hamster on a wheel somedays . (help I want off )

I have read a little about the new blogging format , I was wondering if anyone knew anything much about it ???????? it really doesnt give you any info unless you sign over , but I like many am waiting on the beach to see if the water has anything with fins in it ! anyones comment appreciated .

Anyone who has read my blog before , I had a post about a friend named J who moved to Africa , South Africa actually near Lesotho. I have heard from her twice , very short emails ,,,,dont worry ,etc, we are fine ,,,, thats it , her MOM talks to her by cell phone once in awhile , that is a good thing , and I managed to get ahold of her once last week online , MSN , she says she is homesick and sounded sad , but that would be normal I think . I tried to hook webcam but she was gone to fast , connections are not great over there (I am told), Hopefully all is well and I still keep you in my prayers J .please be safe and GOD watch over you and A> Love you

My other friend that I had a disagreement with , well it is still a stagnate issue , I forgive and agree to disagree but her mind is stuborn as a mules ass!!!! I told her that , I just want the issue to go away and continue being friends , she wants it hashed out over and over and etc . I say leave a wound to heal ,dont twist a knife in it ,till gets deeper ..........

Well I guess many of you out there have been doing some really interesting things lately , come on and share , I can live vicariously through you guys . Except for my movie addiction not much happening here this last week ,,,SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
anyone see anything good lately ?????????
Hope everyone is safe and happy and having some FUN along the way take care and God Bless

I have recently had a little disagreement with a very close friend of mine , I hate that !!!!!!!!!!, I am always out of sorts when this kind of thing happens ,it rarely does with me and my friends but this was over an issue I could not step back and stay quiet .
It kind of irks me more than this person knows due to the fact that this person knows me and my life as I do them , and still continued to be aggressive about the issue of which we differ . I can agree to disagree most things but ,,,,anyway it kind of goes like this

She has a child from a former relationship , and the person she is involved with has been in this childs life for almost 20 years , she says to me in mid conversation that you cannot love a child the same if they are not your biological child ,this man doesnt have any biological children , but has been this childs Father for over half of his (the Fathers) life . She says something happens to a persons love when they are your NATURAL children ,you love them differently , and cannot love them the same if the are not blood .
Well ,three things bother me , one she hasnt any way to compare this arguement of hers as she has no other children than her biological child , how can someone know if they could or could not love someone more or less if they only know one side ,I know she loves her child this is not the issue .Two , this slights her partners bond and being a Father to her biological child and assumes he cannot love this child as deeply as she does, if he didnt why would have taken on this roll for this many years .!
and third my own personal issues with her statement ,,,,,,I ,,,,for many years have been a "Hard to Place " foster Mom and Now have two children /youths whom I adopted and have raised for a number of years , I have devoted my life to these children and love them unconditionally, I love them as no other ,as I have no other children and feel they are a part of me as I am them ,intertwined in love . I have helped with many births and seen the magical moment s but from my experience ,love can come from anywhere and who is to say one is better ,deeper or more perfect .
I am an adult and realize that there is a bond from a biological child but I feel love translates the same , I chose these children but do not feel any better because they are handpicked and would never make a negative comment about anyones relationship as a child and parent ,as I feel love can grow anywhere and I have seen some parents not be what they should be many times , guess this (Biological bond ) didnt work for them . whatever the situation ,no one can gage your love for another soul , whether God brought them to you or through you , dont measure it , just feel it ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,love .

Here is a poem that I have read and lived by , anyone who has adopted a child or is adopted themselves may have seen it , it says it all

Not flesh of my flesh
nor bone of my bone
but still miraculously
my own
never forget a single minute
you did not grow under my heart
BUT grew in it

That chill is definitely in the air , the one where you know fall is making friends with Jackfrost and ol` Jack is promising to visit regularly.The cool air this time of the year makes me feel alive and fills me with life and laughter, I am not a real lover of the cold but the refreshing air wins my affections every year.Living in Canada on the east coast ,you either have to accept the weather as part of life or move , sure we grumble but you have to succumb to it or it will make life unbearable (at this point I reserve the right to grumble on my blog about winter weather If I so please,as I will at some point have snow up past my head in my driveway LOL)

It will soon be Halloween , yes those little devils ,frankinstiens,draculas,witches ,ghosts and goblis etc that you see this time of the year are not due to you needing to up your meds or start taking some TEE HEE , the little monsters are made up costumes from childrens minds ,well most of them anyway , and Adults seem to enjoy this day ,some more than the children.

I remember wearing different costumes over the years , scary, sexy,weird, convenient and even cute .

I have a few favorites and as an adult I occasionally continue to join in the fun . I sometimes spook the children trick or treating at my door ,not the teenie ones but mostof them , they seem to get a kick out of it and surprisingly enough forget about it the following year leaving it open for me to do my evil scheming again, if I so desire :(evil laughter fills the room ;)

I wonder if my old school uniform still fits , I went to an all girls school run by NUNs and yes we had to wear those Catholic school uniforms with thigh socks and the whole bit (SHUDDER,ISSUES VENTED ON THIS IN FUTURE POST ...lol} I could go as the Brittany Spears wanna be from the video Hit me one more time , except for having very dark hair we could be twins ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Ok, thats enough time for a laughing fit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for playing dress up on Halloween , or what was your fav costume s????? that you may like to share ,or Do you even dress up ? What are your children wearing if you are so lucky to have any , any Halloween story would be great to share .
I must go and look ideas for carving a pumpkin as I do this every year and enjoy scraping its brains out with my bare fingers after I plunge a cold sharpe knife into its head ,hey if you think thats bad , some people eat them WHAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAHHAAAAAAAAAAAAA ;0)

Have a Great Evening/Morn where ever you may be .......

what do you believe ?
There are millions of them, some for each part of the world exclusively .
below are some general ones . I dont really have alot of faith in them but some I stick with cause I am a chicken to do otherwise, like the spilling of salt ,or four leaf clover , and the pick a penny and ladder , huh maybe I beleive more than I thought , got any to share ????????

Place a hand in front of your mouth when sneezing. Your soul may escape otherwise. The devil can enter your body when you sneeze. Having someone say, "God bless you," drives the devil away.

If you sneeze on a Monday, you sneeze for danger; Sneeze on a Tuesday, kiss a stranger; Sneeze on a Wednesday, sneeze for a letter; Sneeze on a Thursday, something better; Sneeze on a Friday, sneeze for sorrow; Sneeze on a Saturday, see your sweetheart tomorrow. Sneeze on a Sunday, and the devil will have domination over you all week. One for sorrow
Two for joyThree for a letterFour for a boy. Five for silverSix for goldSeven for a secret, never to be told

God Bless You. During the sixth century, it was customary to congratulate people who sneezed because they were expelling evil from their bodies. Later, when a great plague took hold of Europe, and people began sneezing violently, the Pope passed a law. Since sneezing meant that the person was going to die of plague, people were required to bless the sneezer.

Don't spill the salt. Although some people believe that Judas spilt salt during the last supper, this claim can't be proven. Salt was a very precious expensive commodity in the middle ages. It was also used for medicinal purposes. If you spilled any, you must immediately throw it over your left shoulder to strike the nasty spirits in the eye, thus preventing sickness.

Walking under a ladder was bad luck because a ladder leaning against a wall formed a triangle and the Egyptians believed very strongly in the power of pyramids and triangles. To break the triangle was considered very dangerous. Sidenote: Sleeping with a pyramid over your head is supposed to either bring good (prophetic) dreams or is supposed to bring good luck

Nose itches? You are about to kiss a fool. Hand itches? You are bout to come into some money. It is ok to open an umbrella in the house...you just can't put it over your head or the family will have bad things "rain" upon them. If it rains on your wedding day...your marriage will be showered with blessings. When a couple is walking down the street holding hands and an obstacle (like a lamp post) comes between them you say "bread and butter"...thereby keeping the union until the hands meet again on the other side of the lamp post.

Good Luck: Fingers Crossed - By making the sign of the Christian faith with our fingers, evil spirits would be prevented from destroying our chances of good fortune.
Good Luck: Knock on Wood - It was believed that good spirits lived in trees, and that by knocking on anything made from wood, we could call upon these spirits for protection against misfortune.

Good Luck: A robin flying into the house
Good Luck: Sneezing 3 times before breakfast

Good Luck: A 4-leaf clover
Good Luck: Spilling wine while proposing a toast
Good Luck: Putting a dress on inside out
Good Luck: 9 peas in a pea pod

Good Luck: Cutting your hair during a storm
Good Luck: Sleeping facing south
Good Luck: Picking up a pencil in the street
Good Luck: Breaking clear and uncolored glass

Good Luck: Sleeping on un-ironed sheets
Good Luck: Avoiding cracks in the sidewalk
Good Luck: An itch on the top of your head
Good Luck: Scissors hanging an a hook
Good Luck: A ladybug on you
Good Luck: Carrying an acorn on your person will ensure good luck & longevity!
Good Luck: To find a four-leaf clover means immense good luck, so keep it safe, if you lose it
Good Luck: To pick up a piece of coal that has fallen in your path.
Good Luck: New enterprises will be fortunate if begun at the time of the new moon.
Good Luck: If by chance you meet the same person twice when you are out on business. It is even luckier if you encounter him once when you are setting out and again when you are returning.
Good Luck: Dolphins swimming nearby a ship

See a penny, pick it up; all day long you will have good luck

and very good luck leaving a nice comment on friendly post tee hee
