Is there another brand of oatmeal? Quaker is so strong a brand! I love oatmeal!

Have you ever been to a Quack doctor? I think I have and lived to tell the story. My Dad’s sister was getting married and I had to travel overnight to the wedding. I had to go by bus and when I reached the next day, I had a stiff-neck. So, I was taken to this doctor, who gave me a shot??? for a stiff neck! After that, my ailments multiplied. The injection site pained forever, as in my aunty had kids and I was still suffering from pain! Does that doctor qualify to be called a Quack?


I have been a little sick today, maybe I just realized that I have two research papers, 2 exams and 2 assignments due next Friday and my body went into sick mode. But now I am ready to embrace the challenge and for the next 10 days, I will be missing in action.

I asked my daughter to tell me a word starting with P and she said Pentagon! as for Henry, I will not mention what he said…silly boy! For P, I decided to post pictures of items starting with P
I bet many kids think this place is a paradise

My daughter loves this stuff!

You can never have enough pegs!

Can’t wait for summer to light up our fire pit!

Pretty face

O is for Ocean

Wow, this month is going fast! I cannot believe we are already at letter O!
My topic today is the ocean! Don’t you just love the ocean? There is something about the ocean that makes you feel at peace, maybe it is because sitting on a beach somewhere, probably means you are on some sort of vacation!
Last summer, we took our kids to the beach/ocean for the first time! I have never seen my kids so excited, I think it beat Christmas morning. Henry still has fond memories of the beach/ocean that when he is praying for food, he adds “and thank you for taking us to the beach” Do you have any beach plans this summer?

I found this fuzzy quote:
“I dropped a tear in the ocean, and whenever they find it I’ll stop loving you, only then.” (thinkexist.com)

Yay! First Visitor!

image Today we received our first visitor! yay! We were so excited to see Jim, he came by to say karibu from our new church with some goodies! How awesome!
Today was a day of no unpacking, decided to go shopping and it was crazy! I decided to go back home using the interstate and for some reason my GPS got confused and I found myself heading towards Nashville. At least I got to see Franklin, which is 15 miles away from Bowling Green, how fun!
I hope you all have a merry Christmas and a happy new year, I am going to check out for awhile!
