I highly recommend:

this site The Pioneer Woman. Full of laughter, tears, life lessons and yet more laughter!! Not to mention recipes galore, photography lessons and tips on homeschooling. I've been a fan of hers for a few years now...and never can get enough.
For those of you who love to read I also recommend this portion of her website: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. Great fun love story...about the relationship with a cowboy that started it all =). Enjoy and leave me a few comments letting me know what you think!!

Bread and Butter pickles.....I just puckered at the thought and grabbed the jar out of the fridge...and that's all I'm going to say about that!!

The countdown...

This is a sight that will greet you when you walk into our living room.

You may not be able to tell what it is...but it's there nontheless. Hanging like it's been there forever...although it hasn't been. But we are counting the's gotta fall sometime...
You see it all happened two weeks, plus one day ago. Count that...15 days ago; I had my niece MA here and C's good buddy N. They were busy playing, goofing off as only two 6 year olds and one 10 year old can when C decided to throw his 'sticky hand' up on the ceiling. They had been playing at this off and on while they were here, but this time the darn thing stuck and it wasn't falling anytime you can tell.
Bit by bit it slowly is working it's way to it's gravitational destination (i.e. the floor). And this is where it's at now:

This thing is literally hanging by a thread. Not sure how it's still there, but I do think I'll be kinda bummed when it does fall.
