Rarely does it happen in Dixie but, yes, we have a deep freeze! 

The weather was not as bad as projected but still very very cold!

Last year, winter was very mild. 

This year has surpassed last year, already!

So, keep the milk and bread in the house.

Pray the power stays on since the house is all electric.

All will be okay.

When we went to Atlanta, we stopped for gas for the car.  

This custom bike was there along with several others and a group of men.

I asked to take a picture of this one because I have never seen one like it!

BTW it was for sale.

Price, you ask?  


Pretty cool.

Well, the title pretty much says it all.

I'm stuck.

I cannot seem to move forward so I took the plunge.

I signed up for and attended my first grief class.  

I can't afford counseling, really, it's so expensive!

So, I am doing the next best thing.  I hope it is.

It will last thirteen weeks, minus Easter.

It is suppose to take a person from mourning to joy.

The internet is a great distraction.

Currently fixating on tiny houses.  

This one is nice.

Dear Aaron,
This is the first Christmas we have spent without you being in our home.  Everyone was here but you.
Little did I know that last year, it would only be a few weeks before you would be gone for every Christmas.
My heart is literally crumbling.  The day was so hard.  I made it through without crying but didn't the next.  Today is even worse.  Tears are coming and I cannot stop them.
Every one is gone.  Malinda and the kids.  Angela and her family.  Jared and his wife.  The sadness is overwhelming.  I've done almost nothing these past days. 
When Malinda and the kids were here, without you, it was so hard to see the three of them.  They are all so sad.  Sad living alone without their Daddy and husband. 
It still does not make sense to me.
Yes, I still believe in God.
I still know it is part of His plan.
Still, the part I do not understand is why you were so sick, suffered and died when we prayed so hard for healing.
 Why you died!  Why?!
You were and are still needed here.
You were still loved.
You were a good person.
2 and 2 will never make 4 again.
Love to you Son,
Your Mom

Well, the dem/liberal won.  It is suspicious because the polls apparently closed a few minutes early. 

The military vote has yet to be counted.  Right?

There were over 20,000 write in votes, about the number the dem/liberal won by in the end.

What idiots.  NEVER write in a candidate, it is a waste of your vote.  How you feeling btw?

I, as a believer, trusting in Christ, can NOT vote for any candidate that is pro abortion!  

Yes, I am now a one issue voter.  

Go to youtube and watch the abortion videos.

.. tired of politics these days. Roy Moore is against abortion, for the Ten Commandments and he is the

bad guy? It's okay for Bill Clinton to do his thing but it's impeachment for Trump?! (Waiting for the DNA

on the blue dress. Put the women under oath, please. No? how about that....) Today the local voting

place was as busy as for the prez it seemed. I asked the lady if it was busy today....she YES!....Me....I

think people are MAD., too. PLUS we are suppose to believe the Long Island Medium

didn't see the breakup of her own marriage coming?! Pretty much sums up my day. Plus, the new

AC/Heater is in and working.

What a life!  Is everyone's life as crazy as our life?

Yesterday, we smelled something burning in the attic.  

The husband quickly turned the unit off. 

A serviceman was called.  He arrived about 3 ish.

When he and the manager had both been in the attic, they both was a good thing you were home.

Yes, the unit had started burning.

Yes, the house stinks.

Yes, we are now getting a replacement for it AND the AC.

So, guess having a twenty year old unit, for twenty years, we indeed got our money's worth.

The new units are to be energy efficient.  So, I will have a new post on how to save money on utilities.

Shaking head.

The Internet is like a magic carpet, isn't it?!  Type whatever in, click enter and off you go!

It is a dangerous place to be, too, but I avoid any sites that are evil or tempting.

I go for things like this on the's fun, free and inspiring:
