A WOMAN'S PRAYER...upon the beginning of a DIET!


I came across this recently and it seems very appropriate for me as I “try” (understand I said:  TRY) to begin on a diet tomorrow.  If only losing 15 lbs. were as easy as putting it on!!!!  



Now I lay me down to sleep...

I pray the Lord my shape to keep.

Please, no wrinkles; please, no bags;

And, please, lift my butt before it sags!

(Sorry...couldn't resist!)

Please, no age spots; please, no gray;

And, as for my belly, please take it away.

Please keep me healthy; please keep me young;


And thank you, Dear Lord, for all that you’ve done!

Side bar:  I should have prayed this sooner!!!

I really don’t mind (too much) getting older...definitely better than the alternative...but it’s the wrinkles, gray hairs, chin hairs, menopause weight, and saggy hiney that I don’t care for!!!!  But I’m thankful...very thankful...for God allowing me to make it this far:)


Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what the heck happened.

Fall is my absolute favorite season...and after our long hot summers here in the South I’m always glad to see it come.  Even though it’s not “officially FALL”, I couldn’t wait a minute longer.  I’ve hit HOBBY LOBBY twice along with Dollar Tree and Dollar General (where I found very little).  Soooo...I thought I’d let my pictures do this post:)  Hope you like my style!

MY  TIERED  TRAY...I love decorating it for the seasons.


Got this cute mug from me some pumpkin spice!

                 I adore GNOMES...came from Hobby Lobby.

           All the dishes came from Wal-Mart a few years ago.

Placemats were a gift from a friend who was moving...they came from Dollar Tree (surprisingly very good quality).


I made the wreath with supplies from Hobby Lobby...just                      something simple (to go with my simple skills!)

The porch rocker is very old and belonged to my husband’s beloved grandmother.  Not in great shape any longer but so hard to get rid of something so old and that belonged to family.  Pillow from Wal-Mart last year; scarecrow from Hobby Lobby.

                           Scarecrow from Hobby Lobby.

              Do the sunflowers look tacky??  Tell the truth!!!


Can’t wait for the cooler FALL air so I can once again enjoy my front porch.


And one last little scarecrow...from Hobby Lobby couple years ago.  They still have lots of cute ones. you decorate for FALL?  What's your favorite season?
