The Holiday Season

During the holiday season, spending time with family, and friends is something everyone does around the world. Holiday’s are a time of sharing those special moments with the ones that you love.

The dinner was wonderful and everyone enjoyed the good food that was made. They had a beautiful Ham, green beans, baked beans, macaroni salad, potato salad, mashed potatoes and deviled eggs. Of course, there are enough left overs for dinner tonight and possibly the next night.

The stresses of the holidays are over and things will get back to normal. The children have the week off from school. The wind is gushing over the house. It is rather scary to listen to right now. The wind is blowing under the trailer as well and messing up the television. Bad weather is on the way while she sits here watching Frasier.

Another morning of quiet time for mommy. Relaxing and soothing everyone should take time for themselves. She walks into the kitchen and watches the interstate traffic going in both directions. The holiday traffic and crowds that will swarm the malls, Walmart, and other shops with returns.

It’s a little after seven o’clock this morning and the sun has not risen yet. The lights that surround the mountains in the darkness is quite amazing that many people live throughout the mountains.

She fed George the turtle this morning. He is a funny turtle sometimes. He will try to get out of the cage. Sometimes he flutters his front hands around his face. The children have three frogs Lizzie, Fred, and little Tim. They ate learning about the frogs and our lizard speedy Gonzalez. The children name all of their little bugs that they have studied the past year.

The cherry tomato plants are doing wonderful, and the avacado trees are going to be potted up for inside plants. There are two or three lemon plants growing along with herbs and other items as well. The gnats populate an endless supply of food for the frogs, and the lizard. The children collect many different species of food for the frogs, and lizard. This project has turned out to be a wonderful project for the children, and myself to learn more about the plant and insect life around us.

My Home Town

Today is quite chilly here in Newport, Tennessee. A small town that no one hears about unless something tragic happens. Sometimes it is nice to live in a small town because you know just about everyone.

The mountains give off an energy, and a calming that nothing else can. Nothing can top the fog covered mountains early in the morning.


What a wonderful view to wake up to every morning. Many people would rather live in a small town instead of a big city. The population is very low, and many of the people that they see are tourists on their way to Gatlinburg, Sevierville, and Pigeon Forge. These areas have many attractions for people to see, and plenty of shops to find that right gift for you or a loved one.

Another beautiful chilly day here in Newport, Tennessee. The children are getting ready for the school day. Breakfast is cooking and the wood stove is burning. Warning up in here already what a way to spend the morning. As she looks out her window to se the beautiful mountains that provide her with the serenity, and peace of mind. It is not that bad living in a small town however, there are times when she wished that there were more jobs to choose from.

A small town is a wonderful place to raise your children. A home is where you feel right at home with the ones that you love. Spending the holiday time with family and friends while catching up on the comings and goings of life.

Everyone has problems, issues, and other things that prevent spending time with the ones that you love. Just knowing that your family and friends are the when you need them the most.

Spent some time with the family for the holidays. It is wonderful to see everyone. The children had a wonderful time. Of course, by the time they arrived home the children were wired from the candy that they had eaten. Even though they are becoming teenagers the look on their smiling faces while opening their presents is something that she will never forget. The children are her lifeline she wants to make sure that they know how the real world is and what the real world expects from us. Working your fingers to the bones, and thanking the lord for the money that you are making. Thanking him for the job that you have because it allows you to pursue your dreams that you would love to accomplish one day.

It will happen one day she will be the writing star that she wants. She spends her time writing about the things that happen in her life. With the children there is never a dull moment. As her children start getting older she starts to pursue a career in a totally different direction than what she had planned. She recently sent an application for an online instructor. Of course, there is no reason to get her hopes up that she will get the position. She will go on with her day regardless, of what happens.


The foggy, misty, and chilly morning in Newport, Tennessee. The birds are still sleeping most of the time you hear them bright and early in the morning. The interstate traffic flows up and down. People heading to different destinations. The holidays are upon us as families come together and enjoy the holiday meals, games, and other things as well. What a wonderful time of year. Have a wonderful Merry Christmas with your family and friends.

The children are doing their studies, and listening to the radio on country music of course. Sham runs through the house looking for something to get into. She has worked hard at getting her information to become an online professor. Without letting her hopes become the better of her emotions this way she will not be too upset if they do not accept the application.

The children fight over the littlest things it is quite amazing how they do not think about what they are arguing over. They think that the parents do not hear everything they say.

Another year is just about gone and the next year is going yo be even better. She never thought that she would be this far from achieving some of the other goals that she has set out for herself.

The point in your life when what you do is for yourself. Your children are growing up and now it is time to fulfill your remainding dreams of being important and leaving a legacy behind. Time to pass on the knowledge and information that you have learned throughout your years. Learning more each day about politics, business, life, and everything else.
