If I were a ghost, I would haunt the bathroom. Folks would know it was me due to the constant flushing. Why not haunt the place where I spend the most time?

I always tingle when David hugs me.

My favorite scary story is Crybaby Bridge and I enjoyed very much writing a derivative work. David made a video of my adaptation of the story. You can view that video here.

I will be so glad when I can get the time to practice cake decorating again. I used to bake and decorate cake years ago when David’s daddy was still alive. After he died, I started having problems with shaky hands and stopped decorating cakes. My hands are still shaky, but it is something that I want to do anyway, as well as have a YouTube channel chronicling my baking/decorating adventures.

 

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Keep calm and read on!

There are many things that disappoint me.  One is the disrespect that is shown to the elderly and to our veterans.

Heavenly Father is my Rock and my Redeemer. In Him, I have everything I need.

Looking back, there are many things in my life that should/could have been handled differently. I am where I am now due to choices made then, either by me or by someone else. Our lives are full of choices. Make the best ones!

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

October is the perfect time to get spooky!

Halloween isn’t something that we make a big deal about here at McClendon Villa.  The most important part of it is the candy, so, we just go get the candy and try not to eat it all at one time.

Every October, I wish it would hurry up and be November and Thanksgiving, which is my favorite holiday. AND, I wonder when we’ll finally get cooler weather.

My experience with the supernatural world is not something that I share with many folks because those that do not, or cannot, understand it tend to be rather belittling about it. Just because they haven’t experienced or don’t understand certain things, is reason enough in their book to discount it completely.

 

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

2017 September Challenge: Back Where I Come From – Day 30

2017_September_Challenge_McClendonVilla_500_zpsxnn2m480

For more information on this challenge, click here.

30. Reflection post: What did you think of this challenge? Did you enjoy it? Do you have any suggestions for 2018’s challenge song?

I have enjoyed reading each of the posts throughout this challenge and learning more about each of you. It also gave me time to ponder things about my own life and childhood and assess how I really feel about the place in which I grew up.  I hope this challenge has been helpful to each of you in some way.

I have a song in mind for next year’s challenge, but I am open to suggestions of other songs to consider.

Thank you all for joining me on this journey back to where we came from.

 

Please join the challenge by either sharing a link to your challenge post in the comments or answering in the comment section. Please visit David’s post over at Random Thoughts and Observations.
