I put that word up there,"Yesterday" because I didn't have alot to say.I did get "some" cleaning on the house,not alot,and I did do some needle tatting,still no sewing.And today doesn't seem to be a day for sewing either.You know I am so glad for my "Yesterdays",I have so many fond memories of my life when the girls were younger and in the school-day years.Even then I had "those" days,when my husband thought I was being a total "Witch",and neither of us knowing what was causing THOSE days,but they were few and getting out with the family, camping,4-wheeling-fishing-bike riding,gosh did I mention I had a LIFE,with YESTERDAY,a few years ago,as a matter of fact before Dec 2002,but thank goodness for all those YESTERDAY MEMORIES.And why have I posted this,PLEASE if you can have a LIFE get out and MAKE MEMORIES.I LOVE mine,and I am so glad my daughters pushed me to get back into doing things that I truly love to do,and a new found project of needle tatting.I love it,and just really doing things right now to practice,waiting on me to do better,and I will,I can't give up on it,just like I can't give up on Living,and the main reason for this Blog,Life Can Be Simple,and remember even the simplist of tasks or whatever you enjoy is a memory,and it is going to be in the past,YESTERDAY,a memory.What is the name of the song,Memory,yes by Barbara Streisand,Life Was Beautiful Then,and I am trying to still have a memory for tomorrow.Today I got to go out and have lunch with my 2 daughters and my big one year old granddaughter,and what a memory I already do have,it was such a nice time had by all 4 of us.So see we can all have a good memory even in the worst of times.And yes I have changed,but we all have,not just by a disease by different circumstances.But please lets all have our Yesterdays and our memories.

Today is another one of those days"Beautiful",had you there for a moment I bet,but it is nice,it is warm,and they are saying storms,of course.I looked at the calendar and it is the 28th of March.That means that March being the MS Awareness Month that probably no one other than those of us who suffer will not give it another thought until next March.Please try to remember those of us year around,without you guys we have no chance of getting the help that so many need.I have made a meat loaf for our dinner this evening,with everyone going and coming I have to have our dinner ready early,one going to work one coming home from school,one home from,then going back to work,shoo I just made my own head twirl,lololo,and good ole MAC-N-Cheese,yummy.I have needle tatted another bracelet today,felt like I should do something,got the material out to make the "little" girls their skirts,and decided nah just make a bracelet today,maybe this evening I will start cutting out the skirts,who knows.When I get them completed I will put on here,before and after shots as usual.I really want to go back to the shop and see if she has some more burlap,I have another idea,maybe just maybe,oh well we will see in a few days.The lady there is such a sweet lady,and if nothing else I do enjoy going down and just visiting with her while I browse the store.One thing for sure we can all use more friends,better than having to many enemies.One thing that I miss working is have interaction with humans.You can only talk to a dog so much,mine has gotten I think tired of hearing me so much,she growls now,hahahahah,telling me to shut up already I guess.But EVERYONE have a very Blessed rest of day,and please remember the Red Cross,I know I know,yes it means alot to us here in this area after last years tornadoes.But also remember to shop at your LOCAL retailers and the ones who are their own income shops,and most of all,SMILE

I always wanted to do this,lololo so here it is 2 for Tuesday,nothing I absolutely did nothing twice,lololo I am feeling better,so who cared if I did nothing,I did not feel like struggling so I did not take the chance of messing up and with feeling the way I did for 2 weeks I deserved today,or at I thought so anyway.Last night I did however make the Burlap Shower Curtain and window Curtain for my bathroom,I made before and after shots of them so I will post them in a day or 2,I tried to needle tat today,and thought bologna,I am not even going to do that today.I did get out and go to the grocery store today with the hubby,first time in a few weeks for that even,but he was off today so I went,I guess that counts for something,ahh nay not really.He even cooked out our dinner,and it was yummy,we use to do this year round,but it had been since last fall that we even had done that. This morning or yesterday morning I was watching the news and it showed Madonna's daughter smoking,well folks wake up,she is a kid,and yes kids are "Normal",I'm not saying it is right,I am saying she is probably a normal 15 year old teenager.I was never one of those "Oh my daughters will never do that" or "my daughters would never" I was one of those "mothers" who said NEVER SAY NEVER.They were very normal girls and still are,both being mothers,and they both know that their daughters may try something as smoking,just as long as it isn't BATH SALTS.So ALL YOU DO-GOODERS OUT THERE,THERE ARE WORSE THINGS THAN SMOKING CIGARETTES.And sure it is a stage thing anyway.You know I feel sorry for celebrity kids,they are constantly being watched,like the kids of Preachers.You know the ones they say are meaner than any other kid,not,I personally know this,lolololo, I was into much more than the ones I knew,yelp I was normal also.So if anyone reads this and you think,"Oh my Kids WOULD NEVER",I will be not the only one who says yeah right.So I was glad my parents and my husband and I are just "PLAIN FOLK". So there you have it,I did nothing and feel sorry for Celebrity kids,2 for TUESDAY..

Yesterday was a better day,one better than has been.I needle tatted another necklace,this one white with pink beads,will make pictures when I get the bracelet and earrings done,which may be a few days,got to get the burlap shower curtain and window curtain made.But All in All I do feel better this am,pray that it continues.I take a supplement that an ingredient comes from Jelly-Fish,and I had ran out for a couple of weeks,and now after 6 days back on it I am feeling better.I don't know if it is that or mind over matter,but it doesn't matter to me as long as I get well enough to feel like getting creative again.I don't know if I mentioned or not last week but had the hubby toke me to a antique store that I found that also sells fabric,yeah,I got my burlap and what they call domestic to get some more work done,and thought it would bring me out of this stooper,lolololo maybe it has who knows,and all I do care is that I do feel like doing some creativity.We have had a little cooler weather this weekend also,and the BEST of ALL we celebrated my youngest granddaughter's FIRST birthday which is tomorrow,but celebrated it Saturday too work with everyone's schedule,but it was nice and she enjoyed it.Didn't tear into the cake,she is already a Divia,didn't want to get her outfit dirty,lololo and she danced with Chuck E Cheese,the older girlies also seemed to enjoy it also.The "Hello Kitty" cake was beautiful,I may have to copy the pic from my daughter and share it on here.But I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and remember smile.

I always try to fight and fight hard,had a good weekend even thou my MS is fighting me head on,but I will win this battle.Had a wonderful time watching my granddaughters Saturday at the Resort,and even warm enough that they opened the Lazy River.They had such a wonderful time,and it makes one heart feel better to see big smiles on such small precious faces.I worked with my tatting when I have felt like it.I have made some earrings that I am letting dry with fabric stiffener.This wonderful warm weather has me wondering what in the world is going on,we never have weather this warm in the hills of Tenn. in March.And of course we are having a storm or 2 along but nothing like a couple of weeks ago.I still haven't worked on my burlap curtains,just haven't felt like going out an looking for the trim,maybe tomorrow,the walk will do me good I know,I hope.But just a reminder please everyone remember the American Red Cross,they are helping so many people with all this terrible storms,and they are usually one of the first and last to be on the scene,this is close to my heart since last year when all those tornadoes were here in our area.No more to say except smile,because maybe you will make someone else have a better day.Smiles back at you.Will post pics of my makings later.

Anyone with MS knows we can't take the cold or the extreme heat very well,and with the temps in the 70's it has been a paradise here.I have gotten out this week and soaked up the Vitamin D,something that is very essential for those who suffer with it also.And today I got to enjoy my day with the baby in the family,and in a few days she will be one,where does time go.I have so enjoyed her today and then we met up with my daughter and other 2 for a nice supper.And also today I got to work on my tatting,I have made really good progress with this,must be the awesome weather.I can sit outside and also enjoy doing this.We made the Rice Pudding yesterday and I have to say it really turned out well.It has to be the weather doing this to me .I have got some major sewing to do when the weather changes back to what winter we have left and I am quiet sure that it will let us know that.I have to get my shower and window burlap curtains made,got to find a trim to go with them,husband's input on that,and you know he has some pretty good ideas.I guess living in a house full of females (4) sisters and a mom he does have that experience and living with me and his daughters also,which my son-in-law has really good taste also of what decor should look like.With that we are getting out of town I do believe this weekend,the Bristol RACES are this weekend and when you only live 20 miles from the track that is still to close for all the traffic,fans,and more traffic.It's either that or we get to the grocery stores tomorrow and stay at home till late Sunday.But I do believe a quick trip to the mountain sounds really really good,since I have felt so good,you take it when you get it.And who knows I may find a good idea or two for some more work to do.I have been taking pictures of all the new spring blooms and will post them later this weekend,hope to get some more.I love all the blooming trees and plants this time of year,one thing we are blessed with here with all four seasons.Hope everyone has a great weekend,remember it is MS AWARENESS Month,don't forget the American Red Cross either,they are really a great organization there when you really need them,and also please smile,) it does help.And I hope you guys read this will say a prayer for a friend of mine's son,Sandra is such a sweet lady,raised her children well,and he is only 33 or so and has been diagnosed with Colon and Liver Cancer,please I know they are heard,and like I said they are hard working good Christian people.

I feel like I let the weather really get to me over the weekend,so much devastation,but now today is going to be a lot warmer,in the upper 50's,and maybe today I will get the webs out of my brain and get to something new today,I do think it will happen.March is MS Awareness month,and that bothers me that I haven't really seen anything other than what those of us suffer with it have provided.I guess it is like alot of ways like my extended family see things,if you don't see it then it isn't there,you know what I mean.But that is ok too,as long as someone keeps it out there maybe the rest will follow sometime along the way.My husband is working nights this week along with his full-time day job,and I really miss him here of the night changing the channel to something and then going to sleep,haha.But hope all of you guys remember to give to the American Red Cross,this is close to my heart also for donations,one may never know when the Red Cross will cross into your life.Have a great day,and remember to smile. )

I am so hoping and praying that this wild weather we have had has disappeared for a few.Got to get the house straightened up,dust and such,it is to be so pretty this week and hope to open the windows and get the winter out of this house and let spring make her entrance.Got to get this done so I can get my tatting skills started,do not want to forget what I have learned.Haven't watched much news this weekend,so tired of hearing about Birth Control and Viagra.I strongly believe in Birth Control,but also BELIEVE that so many of my friends be allowed to get their meds at a more reasonable cost.If you ever and pray you don't get diagnosed with a disease you will find out the injustice brought about with pharmaceutical companies and prescriptions for our daily need.But enough of this also.I have to make a bucket list of what I plan on getting made,that is something I desperately need to do.And the ones that my husband will have to help with,he will I hope,lololo.I just realized I am sitting here with my headphones on and no music,lolololo ok is this what my week is going to be like,lolololo.But it is very chilly today,but tomorrow around 60 so need to get my lists made the dusting done and yes tonight work on my tatting.I pray that everyone has a better week and please remember to smile,no matter what someone else may be going through give them a SMILE and a HUG,and I just bet you will feel better also,so with that and being all over the place today and ole yes please give to the AMERICAN RED CROSS,any amount small or big can help,and even take items to an organization or church for these poor Tornado Victims,it will be greatly appreciated,something everyone can do,clean your closet out and do something good for someone else.HUGS and SMILES

Today I have had a heavy heart.With all the destruction from the tornadoes I had hope that the baby they found would survive,but the good LORD knew it should be in Heaven with its family.There was so much destruction,and some in my area,but nothing like in Indiana.And now with all that we are under Winter Weather Advisory,snow.The poor people having to deal with all the destruction now have to deal with the snow.I have not been in any mood to do anything with tatting.But I know that my "Life Is Simple"living with a debilitating disease,it is the devastation and not having control over it is what makes all the other things so hard.We have to remember to pray for all those families and the loved ones who have lost family and friends this past week.We have to remember not to take each other for grant and to respect and love each other,we never know,we can't be mean and evil tongues to others,it may be the last time we see each other,and yes "Life Can Be Simple" when we remember to respect acknowledge and love each other.With that I will close but remember to give to the Red Cross.

Yesterday was one of those days and nights.Started out warm,then cold and the warm,and then cold,why,ok yesterday morning the storms pushed the warm air ahead,then it stormed and hailed,then cold,then came Tornado warnings till 11pm.We were lucky,very lucky considering in areas all around us,destruction and death,terrible losses.My daughter and her 3 daughters, my granddaughters, came and spent the night with us,her husband is in law enforcement and knew he would be called out if there were any to touch down,luckly not.We went to our basement twice last night in the event the funnel cloud did touch down that was spotted.This got all the girls hyper even the 11 month old,so I did not get in the bed till around 3 am,they got me so wound up,or the weather I should say that I got into so much pain going down and up the steps and trying to keep them calm,but all is well and like I said we were so fortunate unlike the neighboring counties and states.If anyone reads this,and I hope someone is, say prayers for everyone so touched by the devastation.And now after 60-70 degree temps this past week snow tomorrow (Sunday) and night,into Monday morning.The weather here is showing us mother nature still shows us not to mess with her.But with all the commotion and the pain I haven't been doing much other than making some tats so I hope to get my first doily done the first of the week,was planning for today as the date but not with everything going on.And please don't forget that this is MS AWARENESS MONTH.And I just smiled(hubby has a chip bag) and not being very quiet,lolololo but rem. to smile,and if you see someone who needs a HUG please do,there is such sorrow right now here and in our area,reach out to them please.Make a contribution if at all possible to the Red Cross,it is surely needed for those victims.

I hope everyone will remember this all month about MS Awareness,with that what a 24 hours,Tornado Watches all day till 9 pm,then at 12 midnight we got a call from one of my daughters that now we were in a Tornado Warning and living 5 minutes from the state of Virginia we were in the path,well thank goodness only some wind,hail and flooding rain for a little while,and we did not get to back to sleep till after 1 am due to another line of thunderstorms heading our way,this one not as bad.I feel so bad for all those who lost family members to this storm system.We only in the past couple of years are now considered to live in "Tornado Alley".Last year in the next county in Virginia a whole Community was demolished and 2 counties from us here in TN. another county lost an entire community.Sure not ready for all this and it not spring yet,if anyone lives in these areas where tornadoes hit please make preparations now and go to centers that open up,do not stay if you have no basement or a concrete room to go to,we call them cellars or "dairy's" here,a room dug out of the ground covered with the ground on 3 sides and a block roof. I haven't tatted today,got to make a few more (10) flowers to have enough for my first doily,YAH So please everyone Smile and have a great day!!!!! :)
