When you buy a random poem…


Off in Neverland

Something funny just happened. 

We drove two hours out of South Carolina, but being a passenger..I was asleep the whole time.I woke up stopped in front of Food Lion and decided to get out and run in for snacks for the kids. Not asking where we were. I’m on vacation, it doesn’t matter, right? πŸ˜‰
I walked down the snack isle a d picked up some goldfish and chips, then while walking back up the isle to check out and pay, I heard a little boys voice calling, “Ciara’s Aunt!” “Ciara’s Aunt!”

As I continued to walk, I then heard, “You with the red hair!”
It’s funny, because that always makes me stop dead on!

 And I often times wonder, why?

Would a brunette or blond stop? An lady with gray hair?
So I turned around and noticed a young boy about nine years old, with his mother.
He was very excited and acted like he knew me.

He said hello and asked how I’ve been. 

I said that I’m not Ciera’s aunt, but I could be if he wanted me to… because he’s such a cutie! In other words, I was friendly back. πŸ™‚
I guess the comment came off as too creepy to his mother, as she gave me a mean look and pulled him to go…as he was in mid sentence. Lol

Then I continued to the front end to cash out. As I was paying I let out a cough, seeing as I’m still sick. (Common cold)
As I coughed the lady behind me and the cashier stepped back a bit…

Which is something that I would normally do, being a germaphobe. I’ve never had anyone do that to me though. Not that I mind.  πŸ˜‰

The cashier then asked me if I was alright. 
Which was odd, because it’s just a standard cough. Then the lady behind me asked me if I’ve been to Wallace.

I told her no, that I was just visiting from NC. 
Still not realizing that I was back IN NC. 😐

Then they both proceeded to tell me that there is some life threatening air born illness in Wallace right now. Each having a story of someone they knew falling ill from going there. 
It was all very odd.  I reassured them that I was NOT from around here, and that I was from NC.
Something tells me that they thought that I was either, SPECIAL, or VERY ILL INDEED!

You can always count on your animal friends to remain faithful in your life.

My mini me. Gosh I love her so much!

This little doll manages to always put a smile on my face. When she’s asleep, I just want to wake her up to tell her how much I love her!

Newest snowglobe from Target.

New cut and color. People say it’s very old fashion. But that’s who I am..Old fashion. πŸ˜‰

Happy homemade cupcakes for daughters 12th birthday. πŸ˜ƒ

When your teen daughter grabs her phone and catches you off guard for a selfie. 😐

Our Gingerbread village, because houses are too mainstream.

Vera Bradley land! 😍

Stopping in the tunnel downtown to write an encouraging message.

Pure Beauty! Pilot Mountain state park in North Carolina.

Again, pure beauty was captured at the artists hand.

There is something special about succulents. Aka’chickens & hens.

When your OCTD keeps imagining that this gorgeous chandelier above your head will undoubtedly fall down and crush you into a million pieces…😐

She was beyond happy. Β Video is posted on YouTube of her opening it up.

These tasted as good as they looked. And they looked dang great on my new silver platter. πŸ˜‰

Family pictures are always an adventure, trying to get everyone to look natural, and smile.

A tiger mask from Sephora that my niece gifted me.

This is what it looks like for anyone who wants to try it. πŸ˜‰

My new phone case for my new phone that finally arrived. It’s so putty! And makes me smile just looking at it. 😁

A new game from my SIL. Apparently it came out in the late 70’s, yet this is the first I’ve ever heard of it. What a derogatory name though. Guess a man invented it. πŸ€”πŸ™ƒ

My gorgeous intelligent son who lights up my life on so many levels…❀

And there you have it folks. The last few months of my life.Β

I also have many topics I will be writing about. πŸ™‚

Midnight snack

Well, today was a case of the “Mondays” so now that the end is here and everyone is in bed, I prepared myself some rosemary ham and a very nice aged cheddar. 

For entertainment: The old 80’s movie, The Jewel of the Nile.

I only wish I had Romancing The Stone to watch first. 

Alas’ Life is Good.
