A new Book

Do you ever feel like you have a "new" book in her head but just don't have all the words to express your feelings or thoughts.. That is me now.. I "feel" like I have a book in my head. I have bunches of things that I'd like to say. Where do you start? I don't even know where my beginning would be. There are so many chapters in my life. Would someone even think my life be interesting to read. What about my struggle with my illness, or how God has directed my family through out the years.. I'm just a stream of conscience type of writer... What ever comes to mind is what I write. I love writing but must confess that I am not to good at it. When I went to college, I had to take a lower level class just for grammar. hahaha.. I wrote poetry in High School, maybe I should try that again. Who knows?? Well, I will say the randomness for another time.. Hopefully, I will actually have a topic that I will discuss or maybe not...Until then take care and God Bless Keena

Stove-Top Popcorn

I was thinking the other day.....Now I know what your gonna say....U thinking!!! How Scary!!! Yes, I know!!! But still..... let me share with you what I was remembering............. Do you remember things you did as a kid???? I do.... I remember drinking from the garden hose, going barefoot in the summer and playing in the rain.... Now a days all of that is taboo!!! I remember having only 1 T.V. that only had 3 channels which you had to get UP off your rump to change...We didn't have remotes....I remember NOT having a DVD or Video player, microwave, or a cell phone.... Not too long ago, I had dial-up Internet...Ain't that scary....I remember making popcorn on the stove.... Do kids these days even know how to pop corn on the stove.... Does the grocery stores sell corn like that any more??? I remember when home phones had the long wire cords and the phone was attached on the wall..... There were no call waiting, call forwarding, or caller ID. We had busy signals and if you didn't want to talk with someone, you just didn't answer the phone...My mom still does not have cable or a dishwasher.... Most people would think she lives in the "Stone Age", however, she has stories of her own of how things have changed since she was a kid... She actually used an outhouse......HOW HORRIBLE!!!! How would we survive if we had to give up all of our technology???? There is actually a fiction book series that covers this topic...No running water, no electricity, and no cars....Sorry, I guess I have kinda rambled and digressed..... Any hoo, things I did as a kid is no longer OK...Like, I never wore a helmet or knee pads when riding my bike...OK, that's enough of memory lane.....I hope you all have a great week..... Take care and God Bless........Keena

Bob and I went to NC to visit his family for Christmas.. It was a short trip but enjoyable... It was fun to see the excitement of the kids opening and enjoying their gifts... I always appreciate time with family.. Life can get so hectic that we neglect those we love.
I pray that all had a great holiday.....
