Fathers With Cookies Gym And Summer #Music 4Ms

It's been an interesting weekend.

I had to volunteer in childrens' ministry, so I didn't get to hear the father's day message from our pastor, but I love that I'll be able to listen to it online.

Father's day was interesting.
I made the husband breakfast in bed, before heading out to church.
His gifts were: a funny card - I love the funny cards, chocolates, Father's day cake, a sports towel for when you are needing to cool down, a nice beach/picnic/sports chair and my kids were able to bake him cookies at the local bakery.
Now that was a fascinating adventure. My daughter was at the age limit to sign up, but my son was able to hang out with her and help her. I love that they both got to do it together. And Great Harvest bread Co is a favorite bakery of mine!

I'm glad he was with us for Father's Day since he is usually away working.
We presented the gifts to DH after church.
He seemed alright with them. It's so hard to shop for men because usually when they need something, they just go buy it. I wanted something endearing.
He opened his gifts and then left the house for the gym around 2 or 3 pm and came back around 9:50 thereabouts.

And I've been a bloody mess for about two weeks now. I hope things are well. Perhaps I need a visit scheduled.  It's not very normal and doesn't help my anemia.

Summer Dentist And Package Delivery #Music 4Ms

I'm running late today, but it's music and I love to dance and visit my peeps so here I am.

My son had a dental appointment to discuss braces! I will not think so much about it because it's necessary, but good lamb chops the price is like a falling boulder!!

But let's hope there is some hashing out of prices in the consult.

Image may contain: text

It was really good to see this because these past few weeks I've been under tremendous mental stress. I have broken relationships. People desire that I get over it, but I require honesty in a relationship or there is no relationship. I can't be silly for thinking this way, can I?
If I continue on as if nothing has happened or is happening then I'm living a lie right? Or is it that I care too much?
I have prayed much to forgive and thought it was going well, but now that this situation is again shaken, it seems I'm pressed to a relationship that I think should have honest repair and not a pretense that all is well. I just can't live like that...I can, but I do not want to. It's too taxing on the spirit to live with people who are one way in their hearts and pretend to be another just so they can have what they want by using people.
It's quite messy y'all. Pray for me, because always I'm back and forth.  I should keep working on the forgiveness so that even if this relationship is not repaired, I won't feel captive to it.

But once I did read something that said, you can forgive someone without having to trust them or even having a relationship with them, so why then am I being made to feel guilty because I think it's best for peace sake to choose this route?

So glad it's a freebie today because all I can do is try and keep up :)


Anyway, I saw this video a few days ago and thought I'd share it. haha.
Hope you laugh, but blondie can sure whip it eh!

Do You Like Your Name - 30 Odd Questions #Blogfest

I  suppose I can always jump on some wagons every now and then. So while I"m cooking and looking up recipes, I might as well give it a go. 


What did you want to be when you were a kid? 
I've always wanted to be a psychologist. I believe it suits my character and I think I'd like to help people who struggle mentally so they can have a balanced life. 


Which “Friends'” character do you relate to the most? Why?
Like Cathy, I went to this site to see which character I'm relating to most and got Monica. haha. I don't watch many episodes of Friends, so I needed the help. 

 My “Friends’ character came back as…You got: Monica  – you’re a little uptight, but you’re a great cook, a great host, and a great friend. 


Do you like your name? Why? 
Yes. I've always loved that I have a French name. I still do not understand how my mother came by it, but I love it :D  
She did spell it a bit different though and of course since I didn't know her, I spelled it quite different, but how it's usually spelled and it works great for me. 

Are you messy or neat? 
Both or somewhere between organized chaos :) 

How tall are you? 
I am 5'5 and would have liked to be taller :)
.
How tall were you when you were 10? 
I do not know, but I think I was shorter...haha. 

What is your guilty pleasure? 
Not sure I have any....let's go with candy crush, but I don't think that's it because I just began playing. 


What are you saving money for right now?
I would like a laptop , but I think getting the ping pong table for our family interests me more since it's for the whole family. 

How many Pringle’s can you eat at once? 
I have not eaten pringles in many years....

Tea or coffee? 
Both. Mostly tea. And many Sundays after church I'll get coffee or sometimes my husband gets it for me. 



Are you an introvert or an extrovert? 
At times I’m both but mostly I’m an extrovert especially those I know or feel comfortable around.

What will be your Halloween costume this year? 
I don't dress up for halloween. 

Sweet or salty? 
Either, but sweet mostly 

Favorite social media? 
I used facebook most often than the others.

Who is the last person you kissed? 
My kids

What is your favorite breakfast? 
Avocados with eggs and cinnamon roll

When is your birthday?
I am not sure, but I'll go with Jan 1st, 2nd, 28 and May 19th. Those are what my mother told me. She finally ended on May 19th with a paper that said it, so *shrugs* 
I don't celebrate anymore. Never did really. 

When did you start your blog? 
Since July 2008. Quite a long time eh. But I've been waning lately because of responsibilities, but I love it. 

What is your opinion on the Kardashians? First, they are over-rated. I’ve seen far prettier girls in real life or other celebrities than any of them. Second, the drama is absolutely crazy judging on the tabloid headlines and finally, I just don’t care. (I'll stick with Cathy's answer)

How would you describe your style?
Casually comfy

What color is your hair? 
Black and gray

What color socks are you wearing?
Blue and black

What is your dream job? 
I am doing it. I am a SAHM, but I desire to be a psychologist. 

Dogs or cats? 
Both, but I prefer if they aren't inside my rooms shedding everywhere. 

What makes you weird?  I guess being normal because everywhere I turn I see abnormalities in one form or another, so I’m sure normal is weird to most. (Again sticking with Cathy's answer)

Celebrity crush? 
I think it was that guy that look like my husband um.....He is in the English Patient. I can't remember his name. 
And The Rock Dwayne Johnson :D

Opinion on cigarettes?  It’s a nasty habit with huge health risks to the smoker and the folks around them. Vaping is really big now. Everyone says that’s safer than cigarettes but you just wait in 10, 20, or 30 years from now they’ll find that Vaping is damaging, too. (You'll see how much Cathy and I agree :)


Do you want/have children? How many?
I have two. I want five. I want to adopt two and have another or even three more of my own.
I love children.



Three favorite boy names. 
Matthew, David, Alexander

Three favorite girl names. 
Victoria, Anne Marie, Suzanne

The Duke Needs A Wife

I really have to do more audiobooks if I'm going to get books done as fast as before. How do you keep up with your reading materials these days? 

ThedukeneedsawifeThe Duke needs a Wife new cover copyOn the untimely demise of her parents, Miss Cassandra Whitney endures abject poverty raising her siblings. She faces further torment as her landlord, the odious Baron Scudder, threatens her with eviction, if she refuses to assent to his offer of marriage to her younger sister Belle.

As Cassandra fights to save her family, she inherits a titled estate and a ruin of a castle. News of Casandra’s inheritance travels fast, reaching the highest circles in the ton. The Dowager Duchess of Taunton immediately sees her as a worthy match for her son Maximillian the 6th Duke of Taunton a renowned rakehell. The dowager also plans to take control over the castle which would be a prestigious venue for her many balls and hunting weekends.

However, neither Cassandra nor Maximillian has any desire to wed. The Duke is more than inclined to enjoy his various mistresses without the entanglement of matrimony; besides his time is mainly caught up with horses, gaming and his club. What with her siblings, the estate and a ruin of a castle to renovate Cassandra could not possibly entertain the idea of courtship. Both did not anticipate the manipulative powers of the dowager who slyly arranges a meeting between them.

On seeing Cassandra, Max is suitably impressed with her wit and ironic humour. Already tiring of one of his mistresses, she would be a welcome replacement. Although charmed with his handsome looks and seductive overtures, Cassandra puts him firmly in his place. Can Cassandra resist the devilish overtures of the Duke and the devious ploys of the dowager?

About the author:

katy My main loves are writing, painting and singing. I began work as a PA but to my joy was spotted by an agent in London and had an exciting career as a singer, meeting and singing with some wonderful people. Singing meant a lot of travelling both in the UK and abroad.

At one time, I toured Germany and Turkey singing for the American troops, which was a fantastic experience. But then, my husband and I wanted a family, so I said good-bye to the singing career, although I did the occasional gig. Having children is such a precious time, and I would say to anyone, treasure it, it goes so quickly and before you know it, you’re waving them off to Uni or pursuing their own dreams and their own homes. I have always had a deep interest in psychology for various reasons, and especially the area of neurosis arising from abuse.

Later, I was to study how we could use our body, mind and spirit to relieve pain and overcome some life-threatening diseases. One important thing here is, I always told my patients to continue with medical treatment along with the complementary and spiritual methods, for I believe medical research and medication is also a gift from God, Spirit or the Universe, as each of us wishes to name it. I have loved writing from a child and during the years of study, research and treating some wonderful people, whom I called my friends,

I would write at night, mainly short stories, and reams of poetry. I wanted to learn how to write self-help books for my clients, so I took creative writing courses at university, which led to writing a novel. So self-help novels turned to fiction but even so, I hope the novels help the reader through their own challenges, as the characters experience love, loss, passion, jealousy, illness, joy and conflict, even the threat of death.

Schools Out It's Memorial And Into Summer! - 4Ms #Music

School's out for Summer. I will enjoy having my children with me. So much to learn and do still. 

But my alarms will still be on because I babysit for our neighbor. 

My son is excited to be away from school. 

My daughter is a mixture of grief and excitement. She loves that school's out, but she also is feeling very sad because she is missing her teachers and friends whom she might not see again. I told her it's normal to feel this way. And that soon her heart will field better. In truth, I too grieve. 

Today is Memorial Day and I hope to get out and do something to honor our soldiers with my children. 

Thanks, y'all for serving our country.  

Good Monday and Happy Memorial Day.
