Joy Dare ~ April 21, 2015

3 gifts found in Christ~~
3 Angels 0:)

* Matt, for so much love, being such a sweetie, helping me no matter what and for that arm around my shoulders as we walked from the car to the ER entrance
* Mom, for listening, insisting I get to the ER immediately and waiting up for my after midnight call that I was being admitted
* Donna Lineman, for threatening "if you don't go to the ER immediately, I'm going to hop all the way to Joliet and kick your___!!!"

All three of you are gifts from God in my life . . . You remind me of my true value as a child of God . . . lift me up when I'm down . .  challenge my thought process . . . make me laugh and cry . . . help me grow  . . .
Thank you for being in my corner!!!

My Pretty Parkway in Bloom

After a long and incredibly cold winter, it is so refreshing to see my parkway burst forth with cheery daffodils!! I must admit I do have a few changes planned for my front parkway this year. First, I have to cut back all the volunteer trees (about all they volunteer to do in this area is annoy me!!).  Second, I have a really unique edging planned for the north and south edges (photos to come later).
But for today?
Enjoy!!!

Happy Red Shirt Friday!!!

Sock Jail Success!!

Well, hello there and welcome back!!! Glad you stopped by as I just finished mating socks and would love to show you the results  . . .
After pulling the 10+ socks from the drying rack, I have close to 20 pairs of mated socks. Matt and I are set for the next week. I owe this to my sock jail. Every time I find lonely clean socks I simply "lock" these in my handy clear zipper bag. Then, every time I do more laundry, I look for potential mates for my lonely socks. As we clean out closets and under beds, assorted lonely socks do turn up ;)
And now . . . ? Well, with another load of laundry in my washer, I will be mating more socks soon!!

Drive-In Fun!!!

A visit to the Cascade Drive In is a delightful trip on the "way back machine" that we owe to our children . . . an opportunity to see a glimpse of our childhood joys while catching the latest movie releases . . .
Find the closest drive-in to your house, pop some popcorn, grab some sodas and your whole family . . . make sure those kids are in their jammies and have pillows . . .
Go to the Drive -In!!!!!

An Evening at Cascade Drive-In

Good evening! Welcome to our adventure!!!
Matt and I have opted to spend our evening hanging out at Cascade drive in  . . . he made us sandwiches  . ..
First we stopped at 7-11 for BYOC . . . We grabbed Hinkley Springs gallon water jugs and each got a mega-slurpee at $1.49/each!!!
Then a quick stop at Speedway to fill the hungry gas tank and to grab a few munchies . . .
Then we headed to West Chicago and the Cascade drive in  . . . a bit of a wait and we were in!!!
The drive in opened at 7:00pm and the first movie starts at 8:00pm . . .
The first movie  is Furious 7 . ..
The second is Insurgent . ..
Tell me, where else can you get a double feature for $10.00 and bring in your own food, pillows, blankets and camp chairs without it being an issue??!!!!!
15 minutes until our movie starts yet we're already having a blast!!!
Wish you were here!!!
