Tennessee Terresa and Pennsylvania Jane

I have a wonderful friend, Terresa, with whom I went to high school.  She is all the way in Tennessee, but bless her heart.  She has helped me finally figure out how to add tabs to my blog.  She is precious!  Thank you, sweet lady, for your help.  Now, I've got to figure out how to actually put things under those tabs!  Please, hang in here with me!  I'll get there.  Technology is trying to run way ahead of me, and is doing a great job!

My other precious friend, Jane, is all the way in Pennsylvania.  She is my newest friend.  She is a little stinker that is full of surprises. ;) She has suggested that I link my Pinterest boards to this blog.  Jane, I haven't forgotten.  That is my next project. 

I just love my friends!  I do have a really close friend, Appie, that lives about 45 minutes away, but due to crazy schedules, I hardly get to see her anymore.  I miss all my friends when it has been a while since I have heard from one.  Each one has so much going on in her life.  I pray for each often and thank God for the friendship he has provided.  Sometimes I get lonely and sad not having physical contact with friends since we moved, but getting on the computer and seeing one of them online sure does a lot to lift my spirits!

In closing, a while back I said I would share an "I Am" sight word book that I was going to use with my son.  I had originally planned to just fold some paper and draw some stick figures, BUT it turned into a MUCH bigger project.  I decided to make a real book illustrated with my own photos.  I am now working on a whole series of sight word books that build on each other to use for his kindergarten year.  Thank goodness he doesn't start kindergarten until next year!  I would really like to try to have these published by a children's book publisher, but goodness, where in the world do I start with that???  I guess the trusty Google searh.  My first book should be here in about five days.  I'll let you preview it and tell me what you think when it comes in.  I will still do another book that anyone can use at home that will use a handwriting component, but that will have to wait, yet again.

Until we meet again, be blessed!


  1. Aww! What a sweet post!
    I'll help you with linking up your recipes tomorrow (Thurs)!

  2. Thank you so much!!! {{{hugs}}} back! :)

  3. Forgive me, I just love being a stinker! snicker.....

    I have a book idea in my head for the last year, but yeah, where to start is beyond me. I am thinking that I will work with a local print shop, the personal contact might be a blessing.....if I ever get the book written!

    Bubblegum Betty---a story about my mom when she was growing up.

    1. That is the blessing, Jane. You keep me snickering! ;) I would love to read your book when you get it written! You can do it!
