About Me

I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 42 wonderful years. I have been blessed with one daughter who is grown and gone! She and her hubby have blessed us with a precious grandchild, Darbee Rae. She is eight years old and the sunshine in our days. I have always been a stay at home maid, cook, doctor, babysitter, taxi, wife, mother, and grandmother. I enjoy crafting. My interests include primitives, vintage and colonial styles. I love decorating my home. I enjoy traveling with my hubby and friends, reading, and trying different recipes. I am a Christian and enjoy activities within my church. I hope you enjoy reading about my daily adventures in crafting, shopping, and enjoying life thru the eyes of my darling grand daughter.

And Our Journey Continues

Good evening friends.  Hope you are having a great week.  Today has been Monday all day long.  Why you might ask?  Well my Mister had yesterday as a holiday and did not work so with that said today is my first "work day" for this week.

On Sunday Mr. P. and I celebrated our anniversary!!!  Are you ready for this?  41 yes 41 wonderful years of marriage.  Those of you that have followed along with me all these years since I have been blogging know the story already. But for my new followers, here we go again.  We were childhood sweethearts.  Liked each other from the time I was in 5th grade and he was in 6th.  My Daddy pastored the church where his family attended.  Mr. P. was the only boy I ever dated.  We were married when I was 17 and he was 18.  I graduated from high school in June and we were married in July.  I loved him then and love him so much more today. God has truly blessed us with a wonderful daughter and granddaughter and a good Christian  son in law.

We left out early Sunday morning for a quick over night road trip.  We had heard of a neat restaurant in Alabama and that was our first destination.  We arrived in time to have lunch.

Their specialty is seafood.  The atmosphere was really neat and very Southern.  They brought out "vittles" before your meal.  They also served hot cornbread and flipped it at your table in a little iron skillet
Don't you just love the tin plate and cup they served our food in? Notice the onion circles on my plate?  They were to die for.  They were called pickled onions.  Wow, I would have loved to gotten that recipe from them.  Just made the meal.  The inside was very rustic and maybe I should say "prim"
These were divider windows. Just covered in old tin.  They opened with chains.  Yes, the food was delicious too.  What fun we had. Mr. P. looks quite happy here don't you think?
We shopped at a few antique stores on our outing.  We both picked up a few little things but nothing that I was really impressed with.  This store has the best prices around for antiques and junk.
We reached our destination later in the evening.  Our room was beautiful and we had a great view from the 7th floor of the pool.  Looks inviting huh?
Sure was nice to get away even if it was just overnight.  Now we are back home and each day is another day together as we look forward to another wonderful year together. It is a journey we will travel together for as long as God see fit. 
I have been really busy in the craft room, and this year Darbee Rae has decided to help me a little.

Papa cut her some wood and she is painting them orange.  They will be little pumpkins when the stem and moss is added later.  Love her in there working beside me and talking constantly.  Sure makes time go by fast.
Before I leave you tonight, I have to give a shout out to a very special person in Mr. P. and my life.  We have been friends with this couple for many, many years.  You have visited Dimple's home with me when we go to TN. to visit .  Today her hubby, Roger retired from his job. We are so proud for Roger as he too starts on a new journey in his life.  This was taken this morning as he started to work for the last time.  How neat!!  Roger my Mister is so proud for you, but I think he is eat up with jealously.{smile}  Now you have to bring Dimple to visit any time she wants.  We are waiting on ya'll to come.
Well that is all tonight dear friends.  I have so enjoyed you stopping by.  Have a great week and we will visit again soon.
Until next time.......
