I’ve been told I love to ramble on, so why not pass along some of my ramblings from this past month.
I want to thank everyone for the thoughtful prayers for my mom as she went through her surgery this month for lung cancer. Being 80 years old, she is recovering very slowly and is now regaining her strength at a rehab facility. We are now debating whether she should have the same surgery in her other lung but she will be going through chemo since one lymph node did show cancer. We both are learning so much about cancer and that this will be a long process for her. Keeping strong!!
I hope everyone had a great 4th of July holiday. We decided to go to Daytona Beach Shores since its only about 1 1/2 hours away from our home. What a lovely day it was. The beach was a bit busy but still really nice and everyone was enjoying the day. Since that area doesn’t offer beach chairs and umbrellas we like to use a pop-up canopy which really works well and offers a lot of shade from the sun. Our favorite beach chairs are easy to carry and they lay back with side pouches and pillow. Having good beach items will make for a great vacation or visit. I also learned how to Boogie Board and for a newbie, did it quite well. I even got thumbs up from some of the young folk!!
What did you do for the 4th?
Do you have a box full of electronic cords like I do? I could never find the cord I needed and it was time to organize them. I found some velcro Reusable Cable Ties that are much like zip ties, but with the advantage of using them over and over.
They are so easy to use and store. Perfect for school, office, garage, classroom and behind the tv where all those dreaded cords are hanging. They really work nicely for so many items which need to be tied up.
Have you ever printed out your own stationery before? If you love to send cards or notes as I do, this is a perfect solution to just print it out. Especially when cards are pushing $5.00 a card now. I love pairing printed out stationary with A4 size bright envelopes.

Friend to Friend –
Sweet is the memory of distant friends! Like the mellow rays of the departing sun, it falls tenderly, yet sadly, on the heart – Washington Irving
Just ramblin’ on,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
