A Wonderful Saturday...Getting Out

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. I am sorry for my previous entry. I was mad about things in the news and what I saw and felt. However I did get out of the house today. I did NOT watch the news so I am in a much better mood today...thankfully. I did go to the stores today and I did some shopping for myself.

First my folks and I and my niece's went to Great Clips so my niece Jeanette could get a little haircut. My mom and I went next door to Wolf Camera to process some pictures we had. Then we went to eat at a Mexican restaurant which was good. I had the taquito's which are always good. My folks had the taquito's as well which they like.

Then we went to Garden Ridge which was fun. I got to look at the Christmas decorations with my niece Megan which she liked. I ended up finding two books which I liked there. One of the books is called "Quest for the Lost City of Gold" by Stephen Biesty. I have to figure out the clues to solve the mystery which is fun. It has a lot of different places you have to travel to in the book in order to figure out the clues. I also got another book which shares stories of those who wrote postcards which I can't wait to read. While I was in Garden Ridge a lady came up with a full cart. I didn't see her coming up behind me. She had a metal chair on top of everything in her cart. It hit me lightly on the back of my neck but luckily no injury was caused. She did apologise for what happened.

After Garden Ridge we got home so we could drop my niece Jeanette since she went out with a friend of hers. My folks and I and my niece Megan went to Macy's. My niece Megan wrote a letter to Santa Claus there since they have a program where the young children get to write the letters to Santa. The proceeds from the letters go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The letters are mailed to the Santa Claus station and they get replies from their letters. I looked around Macy's but I did not buy anything there. Did you know that the mall is closed for the holidays at Macy's ????

After leaving Macy's we went to Sears. My mom and I saw a house for her Christmas village however the one we saw on display did not come in a box. We asked them if they would want to sell the one on display and they said flat out NO !! They did NOT want to make a sale so we walked away without further reply. We continued to look in Sears. My dad purchased a DVD player which was nice.

We then left Sears and I wanted to go to Barnes and Noble which we did. I found two nice Christmas books which look wonderful. I can't wait to read them. I also got a book by James Patterson which I had wanted. I also got a Pokemon book my niece Megan wanted. I did get a cute bookmark I wanted. My mom went next door to PetSmart and bought some goldfish for my Catfish to eat as a snack. He is getting bigger every day in the aquarium. He ate all of them and I am sure that he is rather full.

We got home and I fixed myself a ham sandwich. My uncle Noel called and it is always nice to talk with him. He is always happy to hear from us. So how was your day my dear world ? I hope you had a nice one. I hope your weekend was a nice one. I do hope that you all have a nice Sunday ahead.

I will talk to you all again later. Take care everyone.

Mad About Things....

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. I did not go out shopping at all surprise surprise. Its like freezing here. Its hypothermia inducing fingers falling off, chilled to the bone cold I kid you not.

I have to say that I have been watching some of the news recently and I am quite mad over various issues and things. I am going to issue a warning that if you do not like this posting you can just stop reading this and I won't mind. However I am tired, tired, tired, tired, tired, tired, tired, tired of it all. Maybe I crossed paths with a black cat or it could be a full moon.

Anywho...on the news two women went into the same store and nearly got into a fist fight, people are trampling eachother to get into a store literally. Its like the "Running of The Bulls" in Pamplona what I saw on the news. It also happened that two parents who were older adults took their eleven year old into the store so that they could shoplift. The child was not shoplifting but the parents were. I also have been seeing that North Korea is on the brink of war. What in the world is going on ??? What am I missing here ???? Are we losing our humanity to all of this nonsense ???? Are we reducing ourselves to childish behavior ??? I don't get it and I don't understand any of this madness. A lot of things don't make sense to me on the news or things I see going on. What are we doing to eachother when its the holidays and we are acting like we are not civilized ??? There are still random acts of violence beind done by humans to other human beings. Our troops are still being deployed to Iraq when I heard that the war was over in Iraq.

Can anyone explain this to me ??? Can anyone give me some sense of understanding of this mess ??? It seems like there's no good news anymore. I am so tired of hearing all of this stuff going on in the world every single day of every single hour of every minute of every day.

Can we all just learn to get along during this holiday season....please ???? I hope that we are all learning a lesson from all of this. Are we learning anything ??? Are we ????

I am sorry for going off on a rant but I had to get a few things off my mind before I go to sleep tonight. I hope that all of you will understand that sometimes I just have to vent and get a understanding of things in my head.

Thanks for your patience and thanks for putting up with me this long. I would like to say "Happy Holidays" everyone.

A Nice Thanksgiving....

Happy Thanksgiving !!!!!

Hello everyone good evening. How is everyone today ? I hope you all had a great holiday. This morning my folks and I and my niece's went to church. The mass was really nice. The church choir did a great job performing today. They played the bells today and it was wonderful to hear. Pretty soon it will be Christmas time.

I am reading a book called "The First Love Cookie Club" which is a love story set around the Christmas holiday. There is a woman in this book who is in love with this guy. He broke her heart some years ago and she suddenly has to return to the town where she got her heart broken. I must say that it is a really good book. The story takes place in a Texas town called Twilight.

Anywho....for Thanksgiving we had turkey, a gravy my mom and I made from scratch, baked macaroni and cheese made by niece Jeanette, stuffing, we had shrimp for appetizers, My niece Megan made a cake and it was good. We had a really nice Thanksgiving and I am glad I got to share it with my family.

So how was your Thanksgiving my dear world ? I hope you all had a nice time with family and loved ones. Tomorrow begins the shopping part of the holiday for many. The newspapers are full with sales papers and ads and coupons and hurry up and get here advertisements. Is anyone going shopping tomorrow ??? I don't really feel like waking up early to go shopping I hate that part of it all. There will be a ton of people out in my part of the woods I'm sure.

You might want to know football fans that the New Orleans Saints won 30 - 27 against the Dallas Cowboys. Congratulations to the Saints for a great win. I thought you might want to know if you did not get a chance to see it.

That's all for now. I will talk to you again later. Take care everyone. Have a great weekend ahead. I will look forward to hearing your news. Do keep me posted. I shall return.

Ta ta for now

A Fun Saturday....

Hello my dear world

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I hope all is well in your part of the world. I thought that I would come and share my day with you. It is time for me to share my news with you.

At the moment I am reading "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society". I am liking the book. It is a very interesting read. It is fun getting to know the people in the book through their letters. I would like to know what a potato peel pie would taste like. I like the people in the book. my folks and I and my niece Megan went to a place we go to often called "La Parrilla" Mexican restaurant. The food is always good there. My mom and I shared the Texas fajitas with a side of beans, sour cream, guacamole, pico da guallo. We had shrimp in our fajitas. The whole meal was good.

After eating we went to Michael's. I got some Christmas stickers. I also bought some items my mother wanted. Ater that we went to Hobby Lobby. I got some more Christmas stickers for me and Megan. I love looking at all of the Christmas decorations and things.

We left Hobby Lobby and we went to Rite Aid. I ended up getting some Lindt chocolates and some magazines. I have to say that the Thanksgiving holiday is right around the corner. I hope you all are enjoying the holidays in your part of the world.

I do hope that you all had a nice Saturday as I did. Do enjoy the rest of your weekend ahead. I will talk to you again soon.

Take care everyone

Personal Thoughts....

Hello everyone

Good evening dear world. Happy Veterans Day !!! I would like to take a minute to thank our armed forces both U.S. and our British for fighting and serving our country. I would also like to thank our veterans for a job well done. I would also like to say thanks for the families of those who have loved ones in the armed forces for for their support of their work and contribution to our country. They deserve our thanks.

*****Anywho....before I go any further I have to say that this will be a little bit of a personal entry for me. I don't expect any comments for this. I just want to vent some thoughts of mine. I just need to figure out some thoughts of mine. If you wish to not read this feel free to tell me if you would rather me not share these thoughts of mine. *****

The thing is there is this guy I like. I had not seen him in a while and I saw him the other day. He came up to me and gave me a hug. I have always liked him but he does NOT know that I like him. I was with some other people that he knows but he only hugged me. He has never asked me out or asked for my phone number. He is always friendly to me and he talks to me from time to time. I wonder why he hugged me. Today he didn't really speak to me however. Other times he says hello to me and smiles at me. But other times its like he doesn't act like he knows me. I wish I didn't like him. Its hard for me because I happen to like him but he has never shown any interest in me like a guy would who liked a woman in return. It could be me and I would like to think that he likes me. He probably doesn't find me cute or pretty for that matter.

Now that I made you ill with my crap I will go on to more cheerful things. The weather in my neck of the woods has been perfect. Its almost been like Summer never left. Pretty soon it will be so cold that it will feel like my fingers and toes have fallen off one by one.

So my dear world how are things with you ? I hope you are all having a good week ahead. I just hope that I didn't bore you with my senseless venting and all. That's all for now. I will talk to you later.

Take care everyone

A Little Bit of Change Is Uplifting....

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. I hope you all had a nice Sunday. As you might notice I changed the look of my blog I hope you like it. I also got a new haircut which is a nice change. A little bit of change can alter the way you feel emotionally and physically.

Pretty soon the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays will be coming up. I always like the holidays. What will you be doing for the holidays ? I am looking forward to spending more time with my family. What are the holidays like in your part of the world ?

I do want to acknowledge those of you who stop by my blog and take the time to offer a comment or two. I don't always take the time to thank you or to say how nice it is to hear from you. If you don't want to comment I don't mind just drop in and say hello. I hope that I can lift someone's spirits or I might be able to make someone smile once in a while. A friendly word is often the best when its shared. I hope that I do that once in a while.

So my dear world I hope that you enjoy your time here and I hope that all of you feel free to drop in anytime night or day. Thank you all for listening. Have a wonderful week ahead and I will talk to you again soon.

Take care everyone

Today's News....

Hello dear world

Good evening everyone. I hope you all had a nice Saturday. Its definitely feeling like Winter these days. I went to go get my haircut at Great Clips. I got it cut short because I prefer my hair short. I don't like how she did it but it will be fine I'm sure.

My folks and I and my niece Megan went to Frontera Mex-Mex grill to eat. I had the taquito's which were good. Later on after eating we went to Michael's which is always fun. I got some stickers for me and my niece Megan.

I'm still reading "Happy Ever After" which is the last book in the bridal series by Nora Roberts. Its a good book and I like reading books by Nora Roberts.

In other news my folks are going to the Atlanta Falcons game which will be playing Tampa Bay. My dad of course is a huge Atlanta Falcons fan. So how was your day my dear world ? I hope that you all are enjoying your weekend.

That's all for now. I will talk to you again later. Take care everyone.
