The Eyes Always Tell the Secrets

I remember sitting on my grandfathers porch listening to his endless stories of the war. He would give me a hammer and tell me to nail down all the pop ups on the wrap around front porch he built before I was born. Pops always had his specific spots. When you went up to the house from the road, you could see him sitting on the far right corner in a wooden rocking chair. If grandma was in a good mood and they didn’t fight like cats and dogs, she would be right beside him.  You would usually see me sitting on the steps or playing in the wood pile with hammer and nails, rolling up and down the cement basement steps, or frolicking in my make shift pool which happened to be a broken jacuzzi. It worked just fine and made me happy at the time.

Usually he was quiet when no one was there. He just stared and rocked with the wind. He always had his attention to the end of the road. I assume he liked watching the cars go by. He would always tell me my dad was home, and I would say, “Ok” and keep going. I was never interested in going home early, because I was already at home. See, I spent my summers there. I would cry the last day of school and be super happy the next.

Mom would drop me off at grandmas before she went to work. I would come into the house, still in pajamas, and go watch the morning news with pops. Good Ole Wral, with Greg Fishel. After the news, I watched Bob Ross paint his masterpieces  and then Bill Cosby with his Mortimer pen. Sometimes I would sneak upstairs and watch The Monkeys on the old black and white TV. I secretly had a crush on one of them.

Later on that day, I would always follow him somewhere. He would teach me how to make wreaths from old grape vine leaves in the fall. He would teach me what snakes would bite me and what ones to not kill.

I followed him around a lot.. I always looked at his eyes . I respected that man almost more than my father. He taught me things my father should have taught me. My dad did work a lot and was tired all the time, and pissy for the most part.

The times I loved the most was him in the rocking chair and him telling me war stories. He always talked about Manila. They would send children out with bombs in their hands towards the American soldiers.  He loathed the boat ride he was taking to Japan, and thankfully the war got called off and he sailed back to us unarmed.

I always say the pain in his eyes as he stared off into the woods. I often wondered what he was searching for.. salvation? answers? or clues to make that whole experience go away. I know the war affected him. It affects everyone. He never talked about bad dreams or told anyone he had any. He was a tall 6 foot 5 built stocky fella with overhauls wearing the same straw hat with the green plastic visor on it. He always kept his pocket watch in his bibs, and I always looked at it too.

Thanks Pop for your generation of fighters in WW2. My children are safe and sound being protected by the next generation of heroes.

War is something , not many can push out the back of their minds. The eyes always tell the secrets whether the person wants to or not.

Jesus Daily

My Planner

School is coming up soon. Even though I am a college instructor, school is already in session for me.

Its my kids! We just enrolled our two little girls into soccer, and my oldest will be playing for the high school team. Also my oldest girl is begging for us to let her do gymnastics and karate. She wont be able to do them all.

Oh Yeah.. the hubby has a crazy schedule … We have a busy household. I had this small planner on our wall, and small it was. We literally had papers stuck on top of papers and it was not cutting it. We had to get something that would accommodate our needs.

 

We decided on the Bislique. I am in love with it!

On the left hand side, you can see where we can write notes to each other. We can also erase the dates out and use it year round. The best part is that it is extremely durable and very well built. Something you do NOT see alot these days.

When school starts it will be hectic, but at least we have something that will keep us organized for sure. You should check it out, and I HIGHLY recommend this product.

Pens and More Pens OH MY!

*SQUEE* I love pens. I love all writing instruments . I have a little bag I carry with me, and my students call it the goody bag. It has all kinds of pens, markers, pencils you name it. What i write it, depends on my mood. When I do math, it has to be a wooden pencil. When I write in my hardback journal, it has to be a very thin black smooth pen.

I was so excited to receive a package from BIC Pens. 

I am a teacher so anytime someone wants to send me school stuff.. you dont even have to ask.. just send it!

I got my package in the mail today and it had quite a variety!

IMG_0374I love them all.

I do have some favorites though. The stylus pen, i expected to have some weight to it, NO. it is lightweight, and it has no cap to keep up with. Good thinking there BIC.  Also  kudos to you for having the pink pens in honor of breast cancer.

What caught my eye and is my favorite is the Intensity Bic pen. I love it and it has replaced a popular brand that I used to write with. I was provided these pens at no charge for an honest review. This is an honest review and I hope you guys go try these out.

Spring is Coming

My friends to the North of me are getting pounded by ice storms tonight and I hope they stay safe and off the frigging roads! The temperatures down here topped off at 45 and no ice but just a few rain droplets here and there.

However, Spring comes early here! We just moved into a new house and we still do not have all the boxes out of our garage.  We are waiting till it warms up, so we could build some shelves in the garage. Our last home, we had a nice big shed out back and here we do not have one.  Even though our house had more square footage, we are still figuring out where to put what. It has proved to be a feat so far!

We have a couple of things we need to get done to the house. We want to put gutters on. We need to get storms doors on the front and the back.  We want to repaint the walls because we are not happy with the one coat they so graciously put on the house for us. We also have looked into getting designer wallcoverings to give our house a new  wow look!

We have so much to do , I do not know how we will get it all done!

We also want to do it all by ourselves. Thank god for Pinterest with some great ideas!

Great Valentines Gift

Feb 14 is just right around the corner.  Do not forget to get your lady something special. Chocolates and flowers are overrated. Make your lady feel special this year and do something unique.  I  have a great idea for you!

Buy her a Pandora bracelet.  They buy her a couple of pandora charms that mean something to both of you guys.

I have seen this done and the lady absolutely loved it! It had a charm on their for horse because both of them loved to ride, an easel charm because she loved to paint. There was also a breast cancer charm because she overcame it !

Each year on Valentines or even Christmas, you can add to her bracelet. See something simple, but thoughtful.

 

What are you getting your significant other for Valentines?

Young Wife

Guest post by Gerard Mcdaniel

I don’t know the first thing about running a home. I really wish I’d listened to my parents when they told me we were too young to get married but now I’m totally knee-deep in this thing and my husband Jim has been deployed. I’m four months pregnant, too, so it’s going to be an uphill battle from here, that’s for sure! I love my husband dearly and I know we’d still be together either way but now that he’s gone and we own this house in Dallas near base I don’t know what to do with myself. I can’t get a job because of the pregnancy and I’d have to quit it soon anyway to stay home. I’ve been focusing on getting the house in working order – going online and looking at electric companies in Dallas to get our electricity bills down, buying paint that I can use while pregnant and researching whether or not we can afford a new dishwasher. But all in all I guess I just didn’t expect it to be so overwhelming and lonely to be out on my own for the first time! Most of my friends are off at college so they’re getting to slowly wade into adulthood but I guess I’m just having to do it sooner than them. I’m only 21 so it’s not like I’ve had a lot of time to adjust to not living with my parents or being able to use dad’s credit card! Thankfully Jim makes a decent living for us in the military but it’s really harder than I thought it would be being a military wife. Making friends with the other wives here has been more difficult than I expected because it seems like a lot of people already have set friendships and they’re not all that interested in letting anyone new in. Anyway, I’m going to keep on keeping on because that’s all I can do – I’m excited for our little family to start taking shape and since we’re already having one kid I guess we’ll probably have a second soon, too.

What Do you Collect?

Do you collect anything weird or unusual? Do you collect mexican silver coins or gold memorial coins?

I do not know what but people have this insight about themselves that they must collect things.Some people collect so much, they have no room in their house and they are classified as hoarders!

I know a few people I could submit to that show!

I know my husband does not collect anything. My mother collects certain craft supplies, as so do I. I think that is a family trait, since my Aunt does it too.

I am a collector sadly. I have this saying, If i have not touched it, used it, ate it, or smelled it in a year throw it away. I have several things in my craft room that this rule applies too. I can NOT for the life of me to bring myself to throw any craft related item away. I really need a bigger room for my craft stuff, but at the moment I will take what I have. It just needs organizing some more.

So what do you collect?
