Happy New Year !

I hope all of you have a Happy New Year in 2009.

Tomorrow I will be eating blackeyed peas, cornbread and cabbage , the peas are supposed to bring good luck for the following year. I do hope it works again this year.
I know all of my children are glad I am not with them on New Years day, they all hate blackeyed peas !! LOL

Do any of you eat anything different on New Years Day ,that is supposed to bring luck ?

I am not staying up to see the new year come in tonight. It is just another day to me. If there was a party around here I might go though. Cheers !

What a Day !

My day started at 5 A.M. and it is cold (24) degrees. I decided to dress in the dark and I don't know why I must have thought it would be warmer. Then I went into the other room and turned on the light ! Surprise, I had my shirt and pants on backward and I had tried to put my slippers on in the dark but, I knew they were on backward, so I fixed that problem. If I had not, I might have walked into the other room backward.

Then I turned on my computer and started reading blogs, one of my bloggers lives in New Zealand her name is Liz. her blog is Goings on at the mad bush farm. This morning she had drawn a picture of a dolphin and gave instructions on how to draw it.
So after I had my coffee I tried to draw the dolphin, it looks more like a submarine with a nose ! I will try again to draw it after I get over dressing in the dark.
I am going to go drink coffee with my neighbor now. More later.

Finally, the busy, busy's are over for a few months, at least I hope they are over.

This morning we are having "Spring" storms. The weather is just nuts. I think the V. Word guy is controlling the weather. Last week our high tempertures were in the teens and twenties. Last night I slept with my window open and the ceiling fan on in my bedroom. It is 67 degrees now and the W. Man says 20's tonight, so I will close my window tonight !!

While play on my computer, I found a neat web site , here it is if you want to look at it. I printed some things on that site and they are nice.

I took down all of my Christmas stuff this morning and packed it away for another year. The only news here is weather and I have told you about that, so I guess I will go play in my craft room for awhile.

I hope all of you have a Happy New Year !

Mr. Sandman

I am letting you know that you are not doing a very good job with your "sleeping business." This is a complaint !!!

It is winter and you are not using enough sleep "dust" to let me sleep past 4 A.M. in the morning. I am old and I do not need to be on a schedule, no kids to get off to school, I don't have a job to go to anymore, my chores are done before I go to bed at night ! Are you getting the "Message" yet ? I could go on with this complaint but, would it help ?

Things you may not know: it is still dark at 4 A.M., the birds aren't up yet either, my bed is warm, my rooms are not warm when I get out of bed. Are you getting my "drift ?"

Let me sleep until at least 6 A.M. And I won't report you to your boss !! Or maybe Santa will leave coals in your stocking. This is a threat!

Christmas Past

I have been thinking today about Christmases when I was a child. The best Christmas I ever had was when I was about 8 years old. It was the first snow I had ever seen on Christmas, it started snowing on Christmas Eve. I lived with my Grandparents at that time. Mam-Maw and I had made cookies for Santa and now it was time to open one gift, I always got a new pair of P.J.s to sleep in on Christmas Eve. So I put them on and went to bed but, I could not go to sleep for hours and hours.

When morning came, the cookies were gone and Santa had left me a Thank you note for the milk and cookies. Wow ! Then Mam- Maw and Granddaddy said ,"they wanted to show me something." They opened the front door and there were Santas foot prints in the snow on the steps and the porch. I was thrilled beyond words. I don't even remember what I got for Christmas that year ! But, that thrills me yet to think that Christmas.
Of course the footprints were my Granddaddy's And I still have the note !! Happy Hoildays..

Christmas Card

Hi All,

Addie here, just posting a couple of pictures of the Christmas card Mom/Leslie/Queen of the Hills made for my family and me. Enjoy!

The cover!

The message reads, "May happy memories surround you at Christmas and always". Lovely, isn't it?

Blogging !

I am so wrapped up in blogging that I can't get any of my house work done. I guess it doen't matter there is no one here to complain. I think I have the neatest blog to follow of anyone I know.
Just a little information on a couple of my followers, the girl with the big smile is my daughter and the man with the microphone and waving is my son, his daughter Emily follows mine, too. The greyhound pics. are friends of my daughters ( they have 2 Greyhounds.) Well, all of my followers are all great people and I am glad to have all of you. Thanks, for all of your comments !!

Have any of you heard of: Chemo Angels ? I read about that on one your your blogs. In a nutshell is about writing to Cancer patients, sending cards, and a small gift sometimes to cheer them up. I have signed up to be a Chemo Card Angel, and I am so excited about doing this. But, it takes about 6 weeks before you receive your Chemo patients name . Since I love to make cards, this will make it more meaniful. My wish is to help cheer someone up. I don't feel I do enough for my fellow man or woman. I want to make a difference.

Alert !

The temperture has risen to 30 degrees this afternoon. For two days now I have had to let the water in my sink drip, so that the pipes don't freeze ! Primative, I guess but, what do you expect in "Hillbilly Heaven ?" What's with all of the 60 degrees in Atlanta and Va. where Alex lives ?
I know it is winter and it is supposed to be cold, have mercy just a little warmer ,please. I have not seen the sun since Sunday when it was 60 degrees here, that day and Sunday night it got down to 13. Brr !

I have a few word for the weatherperson they are: Spileci, Coystra, Doraman, and last but, not least Emerp. How do you feel now weatherperson ? Santa is watching..

Baby, it is cold outside !

This morning started out at 17 degrees and ice everywhere, two hours later it was 13 degrees !! Wrong direction folks the temp. is supposed to rise as the day goes on and on. Not so in, "Hillbilly Heaven."Why am I here anyway ??? I keep asking myself this question a lot now days.

We used to live in Phx. Az. where it was summer all of the time. I do like seasons, four in fact but, lets not get carried away with this stuff. It finally got up to 19 for our days high.. Bring out your shorts guys and gals we will have a picnic outside .

I have baked and done laundry, anything to put more heat in here and it has helped some. Now I am thinking about just going to bed and pulling the covers up over my head.

Beside cooking and washing clothes, I have blogged and played games all day. What better to do when Baby, it is cold outside.

Verification Words

I have scraps of paper all over my computer desk with nothing but v. words written on the paper. Sooo hold on another nonsense blog !

I was gonna phonazu today but, you were out teaching the tubilga's inglessh so that they could walk thru the pieni woods and talk to the nonstabu people. Alas ! they had crumbl and left for outqiasm. If I knew where that was I would just deculaep over and visit you ..

For all of you new readers I have not flipped, I just love playing with words. I am an avid Scrabble player. I can not imagine who thinks up these word s. I am thinking about a whole book of Verification Word for the general Public. What do you think ? ;*) LOL

I read my horoscope everyday on the computer just for fun. It said today "let your inne child come out and play." I just did. So long for now.

Not so early Sunday morning

I have never been one that could "sleep in" on any morning but, I certainly wish I could. I have been up since 5:30 this morning like there is something I have to do, not the case. I have had 2 cups of coffee. played Solitare 4 or 5 times , 4 games of Scrabble 2 games of paintball all on my computer of course, who else is up at that hour ?? Now it is light outside and it is cloudy and the wind is blowing so hard that the trees are swaying so hard it makes me dizzy to watch them. "What me dizzy all of the time." Why would you think that about me ? ;*)

I have read lots of blogs this morning one, was Vintage Rose , she has a good blog.

While I was between games and blogs, I went to a site called: www.snappyturtle . They have lots of fun gifts for the person who has everything. The kitchen gadgets are cute.

I guess you are tired of reading all of the stuff. Just a thought be glad you slept late this morning !

Saturday, December 13, 2008

Dots and more !

Boy, Oh Boy ! I have 28 dots this morning even one in Australia now that I am following the "Vintage Rose" blog. I am following so many blogs now that I have to scroll down my page to see them all. One I am looking at is called:" Small woman with big boobs" . What a hoot of a name... I just could not resist that one. So much for this topic.

Christmas is looming on the horizon and I do mean looming. I have one more Christmas card to make, then I will just sit here and wait. There is only one more Craft class before Christmas and the weatherman say we will be having an ice storm that day. So our next class will be Dec 30th. I hope we can make it to that one !
I hate to complain but, I just got over Bronchitis, now I have a horrible sinus infection and it is so bad I can't lie down and sleep in fact I can hardly swallow because my nose is so stopped up ! All I really want for Christmas is to feel better. At least I have hot water, poor Lori and family. Aka Addie. I promise not to complain in my next blog !!

Gift Idea

Here is a gift idea I found on "Sparkpeople" this morning.

Bath Salts:

6 cups of Epsom salts
2 cups of table salt
4 cups baking soda
Large jars with lids
Essential oils--- lavender, vanilla, peppermint just to mention a few. They might not be good all together. ;*)

Mix salts and baking soda together in a large bowl
add oils until the scent of salts reaches desired strength. Mix well with spoon, then put salts in jars. ( bonus, print custom labels for your fancy bath salts.)

Glitter, Glue, and paper !

Well, if I am going to finish making Christmas cards I better do it soon or I won't have to make
I have my tools where they need to be before I start, now I have to try and match paper, glitter and all of the extras I put on them. I really don't want people to think I did them in my sleep !

I would love to send all of you a Christmas card but, since I am not a wizard, I had another idea.
Addie has the one I made for them and I hope when she reads this, she will share her's with you. How about that ? Have a happy day.

Tattoo please..

Well, we only go around once and at age 70 it is going faster and faster.

Lori, Kevin, Jared ,and Tyler went along to see if I was going to cry ( I had been told that getting a Tattoo hurt a lot.).

First, I had to pick out the Tattoo that I wanted which was a dragonfly, we flipped through a lot of pages looking for the "right one". The one I picked was bigger than I wanted , so they shrunk it down to an acceptable size. Now it was lunch time and my appt. was 2:30.

We found a "Mellow Mushroom" and ate the best pizza I had ever had in all of my days. After a short trip to Garrett's business for a look see. We headed back for my tattoo, with all looking on the game began, first one color. followed by five more colors. I did not shed one tear ! It stung a little bit.

Wallah, I have a tattoo of a Dragonfly on my right forearm !

Next year who knows??

Dots and Jeju

Boy oh, boy, when I got back home I had 15 dots on my cluster map. Maybe I should take more trips !

I hardly know where to begin with my "Jeju" story but, it was no surprise that I was going to have to shed a lot of clothing to get any real benefit from the pools of water, one ice cold, one warm, and the other very hot according to Lori (aka Addie.) We went for the warm one and I will never have to shave my legs again the water was warmer than warm !
I was surprised that my new "Tat" was still on my arm.

Inside Jeju was beautiful, the saunas had different themes and designs inside and out as well. The marble floors were warm I was thankful for that because we had to take off our shoes at the "get go." I am still reeling over having to take off all of my clothes !!!!

Tuesday, December 2, 2008

Back in hillbilly heaven !

Hey, I am back from Lori's ( aka Addie's)

Thanks, for all of the the comments on the v. words. I play Scrabble a lot, what do y'all think about a Scrabble word game just using v. words ? Crazy thought, yes or no ?

Lots of "trip" blogs coming up later, but, for now I have to get ready for my scrapbooking day in Berryville with my friend Doris.

If anyone of you want to fun trip, go see Addie !!!

Good morning my wonderful daughter, and son, Kevin. It was a blast. Have a safe trip home Kevin.

One for the road

My book isn't ready yet so I will leave you this message before I leave for Atlanta.

If you are in a Kashrut then you can not dine with Phybrubb, and Ingombeg tonight. You can invite them over for a snack. By the way Glark and Nozle will be there, too.

Can we please have Pread , Chies and don't forget the Hedlyst ? Translated (I guess.) Can we have bread, cheese and lettuce?

These are just a few of my verification words I have seen the past two days??

Okay Alex and Addie it is your turn and anyone else that wants in on this nonsence. ;*)

Sheets and a Book

I put new Flannel sheets on my bed this morning boy, they are wild ! Just imagine sleeping on sheets that are red and yellow zigzagged together, it looks a comet just landed on my bed !

This timely bed change is so my bed will be clean when I get back from Addie's. Do you think I should sleep standing up tonight and tomorrow night ? Let me know.

My next plan is to write a book using just verification words: The title will be " Phybrubb" written by "my" favorite v. Word " Falsesses" Where do these words come from anyway ??

Have you ever had......

Have you ever had a neighbor that you wished she (or he ) lived on another planet ? Well, I have one now that I wished was on any planet but, this one. She is the daughter of my friend next door, I do believe even her Mother wishes she was somewhere else.

Michelle would not know the truth if it came up and "bit" her on her backside ! She is not a bad person but, she is lazy and won't work and if she happens to get inside my house ( I do not invite her in, she just comes inside. ) There she sits and lies for hours on end, there is no give and take when she is talking---she just broadcasts !

Yesterday, she told me over and over how things were when she was in Medical School. The woman did not graduate from high school ( that is not a crime. ) When I want fiction I will turn on TV. or read a book..

Sorry, I just had to say this to someone.

Monday I leave for Atlanta, I hope all of you have a good Thanksgiving.

Friday, November 21, 2008


Doesn't any one know someone in Africa ? If we are going on our Safari I need at least one dot on Africa . I have 11 dots but, an even dozen would be nicer.
I will try to be patient. ;*)

Time is short

In four days I will be with my daughter , Garrett, Jared, Tyler, Hoover, Bruno and my son, Kevin. That will be a wonderful day !! One glorious week of laughing, playing, talking and of course eating. After all it will be Thanksgiving !

I hope it will be a little warmer there than it is here this morning , it is 19 degrees outside my window. Brr !

Now for the work part of this: I try to tell myself if I clean house ( dirty words) change my sheets, etc. That I will be very much happier when I get back. But, who cares, I had rather play my games on the computer, scrapbook, and blog,blog, blog.. I can work anytime -- problem solved !

After Sunday no blog on this spot until Dec. 1st. But, I am not gone yet.

Thursday, November 20, 2008


MeMe # 3

Boy, did that make my mind run amok' First, I would buy my very own Amtrak train then staff it with the best Chefs and invite all of my friends, family and some bloggers ( maybe Alex would like to come along with her dogs.) There would be one car for pets, with all the things dogs would like to have with them . Eveyones dogs invited. We would take a trip up into Alaska. I have a video of such a trip ! That was a beautiful trip on the video.

I would move somewhere warmer and closer to " some of my family" a big nice house with everything anyone would want to have, for me that could include an old lady bathtub. ( one you see on then a huge room for sewing and scrapbooking and all tools, too, please, for all of my hobbies.

Three, to go on Safai in Africa and ride across the plains and see the animals up close. Does anyone want to go with me ? (Four) a pill to make me young again. (5) A limo would be nice. I do not have a car. (6)Money for all of my kids and grandkids. so they would never have to work again.

Country Commandments

You just never know where you may find good information! I was sitting in the "little room" waiting for the Doctor to come in and talk to me. I had already looked through a whole magazine, the I started to look the walls and I saw this plaque.

Country Commandments, and they go like this:
No hankerin' for others stuff.
No cuss'n
No kill'n
Mind your Ma and Pa
Cheatin' is forbidd'n
Ya'll don't steal
Just how could I have lived this long and not know this stuff ?

Well, that's life in Hillbilly Heaven !!

Monday, November 17, 2008

Things are hopping !

Next Monday I will leaving for Atlanta and I have lots to do before that time comes.
It has been about 100 years since I have been anywhere so far away from my own spot. ( Not blogspot) just where I live.

Lots of laundry to be done, clean my house, so I will not come home to a messy house ! Pack my box and send it UPS. I do want my clothes to be there when I arrive, being that it is Thanksgiving holidays and about a b'zillon people will be traveling, also. Did I mention I hate crowds , I am big enough to be a "crowd" by myself..

I have to leave a key with my friend Nell, so she can water my 15 plants and turn my water on in the kitchen sink if the temp. gets down way below freezing. It has already been in the mid-twenties. Cold enough for you ?

I will get to see my daughter and her family and the dogs, Another bonus-- my son from Az.

Saturday, November 15, 2008


Where is everybody today ? Have you stopped blogging ?


Yeah, 11 dots now---does that make me "dotty" or what ? Virginia, there is a Santa Clause after all. Everyone have a good week-end


I have several of my Grandmother's Antiques and I cherish them.

Tomorrow, I will become an antique ! I do believe 70 relates to antique-ish. I just made that word up as you can tell. I am not rusty yet but, I creak when I walk my hair is not grey, thanks to my grandmother's genes. No, not blue jeans !

On the lighter side, the weatherman is calling for snow flurries today and our leaves are still falling maybe today we are having "fallish winter!" Fall and Winter are my favotite seasons but, not together please...Then we do not know what to wear. I do want to be stylish, you know. That is a "must" in Hillbilly Heaven.

Thursday, November 13, 2008


I am wild about dots and this morning I have 10 of them, count them 10 !

This gives the strength to go forward with this day, I guess you can tell it doesn't take much to make me happy ! Another happy thing is that Lori and Kevin follow my blog and now my granddaughter. Stay with me folks !!!

Oh, yes my Dragonfly trip was wonderful, you otta' try it someday. ;-)

Just think 10 dots and 5 followers. Thanks

Dragonfly Taxi Service

Dragonfly taxi service provides trips to anywhere a person wants to go and I am going to soar over mountains and down into forests. There, I will see all plant life and wild animals. I am bored today so what could be better than a trip ? I imagine: waterfalls, birds singing, deers, flowers and many other Wonders of the World. Come along if you dare, there will be no cars, smog or tall buildings or people is sight. I hope my Draogfly is a purple and pink one. See you later.

Oh, Happy Day

I just found out one of my Grandsons can put a whole Ding Dong in his mouth, I guess it came as a "big" surprise to his Mom but, not to Granny ----- I have a big mouth bet I could put a whole one in my mouth , too! Just wait folks until I get to your house. Yes, I am talking the little cake.

Another subject: When I woke up this morning I was not a happy camper. It is cloudy, damp, and looks like it might snow at anytime. Don't get me wrong I love snow but, just not right now. So decided to cook Loris favorite dish--Blackeyed Pea Soup. LOL

Dancing with the Stars !

If you did not watch the show last night, you missed some terrific dancing. They all are so good I don't know who will be voted off tonght.

Should they ever have blimps on there, I will be first in line. On to another topic. Today is the day Doris and I go to Berryville for shopping and our Scrapbooking class. Oh, what fun ! First we eat breakfast out, then the class and last but, not least Walmart. Oh, I forgot lunch we eat out again.

On a sadder note I will only be 69 for 5 more days. ;-) Just kidding about the sad part !
Will have an update later today and it will be funny. Chow

P.S. Thanks, for the new follower and the dot..

Monday, November 10, 2008

Where are the Dots !!

I hate to admit this but, I am wearing out my computer looking at my Cluster Map for new dots.

How do people find our blogs ? Nine have found mine but, I want more ! The first thing every morning I run into my kitchen and turn on my computer, shivering I sit down and wait anxiously for a new followers or new dots. I know I have not had my blog very long. Patience is not one of my virtues.
Worst of all I lost one of my followers. I think he was from Turkey and maybe he had never heard of a "Hillbilly."That's his loss.

Well folks, if you wonder where I am----I am still sitting by my computer. ;-0

Pet Peeve

Maybe this is not the place to write this but, here goes!

The Weather Channel does not know there is a state called Arkansas. They do not tell the temperature of any city in the state Little Rock is the capital of this state. The weather persons stand in front of Ar. if they move to one side or the other then they call Ar.., Tenn., Kansas, or something else !

Just a note to the Weather Channel : Some people here can read and write, we know North, South, East and West. We feel hot and cold ! Shame on you for ignoring this beautiful State. !!!

Now I feel better I think I will go to the North Pole.

The North Pole

I woke up this morning at the North Pole. My Igloo was almost covered with snow and ice, the wind was howling and so were my sled dogs ! What's an Eskimo supposed to do on a day like this ? First I will eat an Eskimo Pie, then get my fishing pole--- break a hole in the ice and catch my lunch.
After that I will hitch up the dogs and run into town and do my shopping at Walmart ! Isn't there one everywhere ? I need a new walrus skin coat and a new axe. Then I will go home and watch T.V.

Oh, my that was just a dream I am still in Hillbilly Heaven.

Friday, November 7, 2008

Winter is coming !

It is cold outside for a Fall day and the wind is blowing like crazy , the leaves are coming down like rain.

My only source of heat -- 4 small electric heaters, today they are warm enough. Come January I may be a block of ice , I hear that is what happened to the Prehistoric animals and people. Who, knows I may make history someday when they find me ! Later

A day in Hillbilly Heaven

Hi, Y'all

A friend brought me some black walnuts, she did crack them. This afternoon I sat down to get the nuts out of the shells. She did not furnish a tool to get them out with so I had use my imagination, first I tried a new nail ( no good ) next I got a crochet hook out of my collection of hooks this is better but, slow as "molasses running up hill."
To let you know how slow I have been picking for more than an hour and I have about 1/4 cup. At this rate I will be doing this task into the Spring. I had hoped to do some Christmas baking using these nuts. Don't hold you breath folks.

The leaves are falling and falling !

This cooler weather is turning all the leaves their many colors but, meanwhile the are hitting the ground, to be raked up by someone ?? Along with that come Thanksgiving and the Christmas. The question is: What to eat or not eat, in my case , it is what not to eat ?? Some times after I eat I think, "I just ate my will power." I can gain weight just watching food commercials !

I will be at my daughter' and family's house for Thanksgiving, I just hope I don't get so much bigger I can't get on the plane to return home to Hillbilly Heaven.

This time of the year I like to burn candles and Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla scents are my favorites. Then my house smells like I have been baking all day. I am still searching for a candle that smells like pound cake. One of my dear friends had one that was that scent, it really had a nice smell.

Yesterday was Doris and my day to go to our Scrapbooking class, we have such a good time there. We laugh and talk and show each other what we have done since we were there last.
www. is Johanna blog, she own the shop where we have our classes. There are pic. of some of the things we have done. Later

Time change#!*7?!#=*

This morning I was awake by 4 A.M. My body does not know about the time change. I was slowly making my way to the computer , my eyes not quite open I tripped and met the floor " Face to Face." Now getting up was another problem and am not as young as I used to be but, that is a topic for another day. Of course I did get up or I would not be writing this blog. I think all of time change stuff is supposed to be about it being light outside when we get up ! Not so where I live. My place on a hill enclosed by many tall pine trees. Described by many as a "Forest" You cannot see the Forest for the trees, a man once said. About meals since "the change". When I get up I usually eat breakfast. If I eat at 4 in the morning I want to eat lunch at 9. Maybe I should just eat once an hour and not worry about " my largeness if that is a word. I really am in shape. Round is a shape isn't it ? More later ;-0

Addie-Tude: A Lovely Centerpiece

Addie-Tude: A Lovely Centerpiece

Oh, Lori, even though you told me about your centerpiece, it sounds worse on paper. Yes, I can call her Lori she is my daughter and she is the most fun of "all my girls" Oh, yes I only have one ! I hope you do not have any of that centerpiece left by the time I get there. Mom

Six A.M. In Hillbilly Heaven

Good grief ! My body says 6 a.m. my clock say 5 a.m. To eat breakfast now or later is the question ? If I eat now then I have to eat the next to meals earlier and where does it end. Maybe I should eat every hour that way time does not matter. But, then I might be to big to get on a plane to visit my children in Atlanta in three weeks !! I can see right now, today is going to be a bummer !

When a cow laughs does milk come out her nose?

I have a love for all animals and this includes cows. I live in a rural area and cows do funny looking things like using their tails for swatters and standing in the ponds of water while they drink it. The longing in their eyes is so sweet when they are watching their babies. I even have a page in my scrapbook about cows.

Scraps Of Paper

This is my first blog and I am : all about scrapbooking. My friend and I go to a class for card making and scrapbooking once a week . I have a craft room in my house that is full of scraps of paper all shapes , colors and sizes I would love to know how many Scrappers are out there. I have been doing this for a year now. Scrapbooking fills my days-not to mention my living room, bedroom and closets!
