Cabin life , some people think it is all relax and take in the sights but it is a great deal of work like anything good in life , you have to work at it to keep it going great and to be able to enjoy the pleasure it can give .wood needs a chopin, boy I am glad I am a girl !!!!!I get to use a wheelbarrow , ehhhh haaaa ! for me , look out for everyone else ,I have one speed , fast and lopsided !I kid you NOT :0)Now stackin is where I come in , Gummy gloves an all , this is birch ,we use all kinds but mostly Birch , I am not to neat , tired now !!!! and alot more to go ! Notice the stain on the patio, our cabin sits directly (15 or so feet) next to the Atlantic Ocean , this was stained late last year , the salt from the water and wind and snow , strip it like it is paper, more painting to come this year , !!!!!!!!!Just to keep warm is hard labour but it can all be done before hand ,sort of like relationships , you get what you put into it , not always but alot of the time. It is so heart warming to have met my friends here on blogging , each one different as I am to them , but uniquely wonderful in their own way . Never did I think I would meet so many different people and they each warm my heart ,,,,,,,,,,,,,as we never met in the flesh , friendship has overcome that obstacle and blossomed .

Anyone out there , Hello????????????????????I surely hope you all have not given up on me as I have been gone for a bit ,

My FRIEND Clare sent me an email with some kewl kitties and I thought I would share they are so cute ..............................................

My life's pace has been like kitty #2 zooming and I have had little time to blog , although I have tried to keep up with ye all ,I haven't had much time to post (~~whimper~~~)

On top of everything life can bring I have been taking care of a sick child , who is at best ..fragile.. , nothing like setting your priorities in order when something like that comes up,except for the illness or pain I would not wish the time away but sure do wish for a long nap ~~~ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ ~~~ whoops what was I saying (tee hee)

Speaking for me only , There always seems so much going on in my life but I always feel like it is to boring to blog about , strange enough , I can hardly wait to read others daily post and love just following them to the garden , shop or just on a vent or just daily life ....I drink it in honey sweet ,and can hardly wait for more . So bare with me on my boring , or absent post as each and every ones visit or comments enrich my life, you see I still get excited when I see I have a comment , just like a child on Christmas morn .LOL So thank you to all who commented or who ever will.

I have made many Friends through Blogging , some who I am sure will be life long , I must say it is a blessing to meet people from around the world and to become friends , care and share feelings without ever meeting in person .I was asked not to long ago from a long time friend :::"what brought you to blogging anyway ??what do you get out of it ???"""

My answer ,,,,,,,,FRIENDS.......and I got into it looking for pen pals across the globe , but could not find a really safe way of doing it , as I am a little skeptic of personal info given out over the net .( SHOCKED !!Not at all I bet )) ,and I liked writing journals and am chatty at times ,so I tried blogging and never looked back.

To Friendship ,,To Blogging ,,,,We all cross each others paths for a reason , we may stay a little while or a lifetime , it is not the length of the journey but the journey itself .Enjoy it :)

My Mother kept a garden,

a garden of the heart,

She planted all the good things

that gave my life it's start.

She turned me to the sunshine

and encouraged me to dream,

Fostering and nurturing

the seeds of self-esteem

.And when the winds and rain came,

She protected me enough-

-But not too much because she knew,

I'd need to stand up strong and tough.

Her constant good example

always taught me right from wrong-

-Markers for my pathway

that will last a lifetime long.

I am my Mother's garden.

I am her legacy-

-And I hope today she feels

the love

reflected back from me.

-Author Unknown-
Dear Mom,
I'm sending you an Angel

To watch over you with care

Protect you while you sleep at night

And bless you with a prayer

An Angel who reminds you
When I can't always be near

I keep you deep inside my heart

And hold you very dear

.Because I want to thank you

For all the love you bring

An Angel smiles on you today

And keeps you 'neath her wing.

Happy Mother's

You are the best Mother in the world

I love you

Now a cute email for all the Mothers out there , as always read with a little touch of humor , Happy Mothers day (around here (MUDDERS DAY )LOL

Bless You all , and a special congrats to a new MOMMY out there Jessica , Dianes Daughter , may God smile upon you and guide you , God Bless you and little Emmy ..



This is hysterical. If it had been presented this way, no one would have done it!!!!

POSITION :Mother, Mom, Mama, Mommy, Momma, Ma

JOB DESCRIPTION:Long term, team players needed, for challenging permanent work in an, oftenchaotic environment. Candidates must possess excellent communication and organizational skills and be willing to work variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends and frequent 24 hour shifts on call. Some overnight travel required, including trips to primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities. Travel expenses not reimbursed. Extensive courier duties also required.

RESPONSIBILITIES: The rest of your life. Must be willing to be hated at times, at least temporarily, until someone needs $5. Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly. Also, must possess the physical stamina of a pack mule and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat in case, this time, the screams from the backyard are not someone just crying wolf. Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges, such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets and stuck zippers. Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and coordinate production of multiple homework projects . Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings for clients of all ages and mental outlooks. Must be willing to be indispensable one minute, an embarrassment the next. Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices. Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Must assume final, complete accountability for the quality of the end product. Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and janitorial work throughout the facility.

POSSIBILITY FOR ADVANCEMENT &PROMOTION : Virtually none. Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you

PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE : None required unfortunately. On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis .

WAGES AND COMPENSATION : Get this! You pay them! Offering frequent raises and bonuses. A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because of the assumption that college will help them become financially independent. When you die, you give them whatever is left. The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.

BENEFITS : While no health or dental insurance, no pension, no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and no stock options are offered; this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth and free hugs for life if you play your cards right. Forward this on to all the Moms you know, in appreciation for everything they do on a daily basis, and let them know they are appreciated.

To My Mother , I love you more each and every day,you are in my heart always .

The "Old Hag" Syndrome
You wake up unable to move, barely able to breathe... you feel an oppressive weight on your chest... and you sense some evil presence in the room... The old hag strikes AGAIN last night !

I sleep with a night light ( I can hear you all laughing but that's ok , I am a big girl and can handle it , just not the dark) If for any reason I sleep in total darkness , I get what is called "THE HAG" shivers....I think everyone has experienced this ,maybe called something else where you are from , lets see , you lay in your bed dreaming that you are awake ,and a faceless figure is coming up the stairs turning to wards your room and you can see them but cannot make a sound nor move and feels like your heart is going to break open your chest ,you cannot wake up from this weird state as it seems like you are awake in your bed and it is all happening while you are awake but NOT. Then they approach you and come to your bedside and the covers tighten around you and pull you tight to the bed and great harm can be felt from this being , it is evil , and it continues till you wake freaked out , or calm yourself in your sleep and talk yourself through it but your mind makes it as if it is present time and you are awake in your own room .Now you know why I sleep with a teeny night light , I am better now , it use to be a flood light , LOL

"A classic example of what has become known as the "old hag" syndrome . The victims awake to find that they cannot move, even though they can see, hear, feel and smell. There is sometimes the feeling of a great weight on the chest and the sense that there is a sinister or evil presence in the room. , they are often quite frightened about what is happening to them.
The name of the phenomenon comes from the superstitious belief that a witch - or an old hag - sits or "rides" the chest of the victims, rendering them immobile. Although that explanation isn't taken very seriously nowadays, the perplexing and often very frightening nature of the phenomenon leads many people to believe that there are supernatural forces at work - ghosts or demons.
The experience is so frightening because the victims, although paralyzed, seem to have full use of their senses. In fact, it is often accompanied by strange smells, the sound of approaching footsteps, apparitions of weird shadows or glowing eyes, and the oppressive weight on the chest, making breathing difficult if not impossible. All of the body's senses are telling the victims that something real and unusual is happening to them. The spell is broken and the victims recover often on the point of losing consciousness. Fully awake and well, they sit up, completely baffled by what just happened to them since now the room is entirely normal.
Confronted with such a bizarre and irrational experience, it's no wonder that many victims fear that they have been attacked in their beds by some malevolent spirit, demon or, perhaps, an alien visitor.
The phenomenon occurs to both men and women of various ages and seems to happen to about 15 percent of the population at least once in a lifetime. It can occur while the victim is sleeping during the day or night, and it is a worldwide phenomenon that has been documented since ancient times.
"In the 2ND century, the Greek physician Galen attributed it to indigestion," according to The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits by Rosemary Ellen Guiley. "Some individuals suffer repeated attacks over a limited period of time; others have repeated attacks for years."

Night light anyone , I have many LOL

Anyone else every have any thing like this before ???? Share !!come on ,indulge me please LOL

This is a swimming hole from the same park/beach as yesterdays post pic , and below is another pic of same beach different angle siggggggggh , I wanna go but to cold yet , I could wear a snow suit LOL. I did not take these three pics and cannot claim their beauty but my friend D can , thanks D.

This new version of the "footprints" story really caught me off guard at the end...What a blessing. FOOTPRINTS...

A New Version

Imagine you and the Lord Jesus are walking down the road together. For much of the way, the Lord's footprints go along steadily, consistently, rarely varying the pace. But your footprints are a disorganized stream of zigzags, starts, stops, turnarounds, circles, departures, and returns. For much of the way, it seems to go like this, but gradually your footprints come more in line with the Lord's, soon paralleling His consistently. You and Jesus are walking as true friends! This seems perfect, but then an interesting thing happens:

Your footprints that once etched the sand next to Jesus' are now walking precisely in His steps. Inside His larger footprints are your smaller ones, you and Jesus are becoming one.

This goes on for many miles, but gradually you notice another change. The footprints inside the large footprints seem to grow larger. Eventually they disappear altogether.

There is only one set of footprints. They have become one. This goes on for a long time, but suddenly the second set of footprints is back. This time it seems even worse! Zigzags all overthe place. Stops. Starts. Gashes in the sand. A variable mess of prints. You are amazed and shocked. Your dream ends. Now you pray: "Lord, I understand the first scene, with zigzags and fits. I was a new Christian; I was just learning. But You walked on through the storm and helped me learn to walk with You." "That is correct." "And when the smaller footprints were inside of Yours, I was actually learning to walk in Your steps, following You very closely." "Very good. You have understood everything so far." When the smaller footprints grew and filled in Yours, I suppose that I was becoming like You in every way." "Precisely."

"So, Lord, was there a regression or something? The footprints separated, and this time it was worse than at first." There is a pause as the Lord answers, with a smile in His voice.

"You didn't know?

It was then that we danced!"

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven: A time to weep, a time to laugh, a time to mourn, and a time to dance.
