What is profound?

Nothing in this post! HAHA.

Seriously, I am happy the weather is cooler in the evenings, and I have visions of pumpkins (butter) and seeds. I am hungry for apple spice cake, and a roast in the oven.

I am thinking about going to a pumpkin patch, or a pick your own to have a great family Saturday. I think that they will be already from the field, but the time will get me even more hungry for fall. I just hope that it wont be hot!

The new baby is growing, speaking of changes in the air. He is focusing on many things, and very alert, when he is awake. I am afraid he is not so much a newborn any longer.

I will be glad to wear a sweater during the day and one of my many under used jackets in the evening.

Now, off to bed. Night!

Happy Birthday, pumpkin head.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

Just a quickie...

Well, baby makes five!
We all are doing fine and things couldn't have gone any better. I was very blessed with an eight pound seven ounce baby boy. He was 20 3/4 inches long and has a full head of hair. I could go into the details of the birth but that might be for another time.
We all are doing well, and adjusting. The two other children are happy, O being somewhat upset she is not the baby any more, but happy with her younger brother. I think things will be just fine.
I am anxious to get into the swing of things, like getting back to normal (what ever that is!) and back to taking care of my household again. As far as blogging, I might cut things down to once a week, we will see.
Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers.

One more day.

I have one more day to be pregnant. I have been pregnant since Christmas. I have a scheduled C Sec Friday at 7:30 am and, Lord willing, will have a bouncing baby boy. I have a name picked, finally, and hopefully I will heal well and pass gas quickly.
Ask me some other time about the gas.
Until later, keep me and my family in your prayers.

My unwanted pe(s)ts

This time of year has proven to be tough for me in more than one way. The end of summer, waiting for cooler weather is tough. The dog's hair is coming out in massive amounts. All over my kitchen. Then, there are the crickets.
I have heard the humidity brings them, I wish it would take them. I cant go in my kitchen, with all the hair in it, without thinking I might run into one. They seem to come out at night, and when I say come out, watch out. If you open the door they jump right in. The dogs will take just long enough to allow at least one to hop its way in.
Now you might be thinking something on the lines of gross, and I agree, its gross, but really what am I to do but endure? Pesticides are not safe for the animals or our fish, or children or unborn children for that matter. Besides, I have talked to folks about what they use for control, and they spray. But it doesn't keep the crickets out, just kills them when they get inside. At church they spray, and let me say that has no effect on the population.
Speaking of crickets at church, last Wednesday my MIL went with me to the service. Nothing out of the ordinary happened until she saw something on her shoulder and went to look at it. Well, guess what it was? A CRICKET! THAT JUMPED RIGHT ON ME AND DOWN MY BLOUSE! I yelled and shouted to get the thing off. Just when I relaxed I realised IT WAS STILL THERE, IN MY BRA! Good thing my MIL told me to go to the bathroom, I couldn't think straight. I probably looked like I was going to strip right there!
I know crickets don't bite, or carry any infectious diseases, but try having one down your shirt and see how yucko it is. All in all it was pretty funny.

So I am indeed tired of my crickets and I hope it will only be a little while longer I have to endure these "pets." What cracks me up though, is they sell them at petsmart and the like stores for .30 cents each!! Crazy, come to my house and you can have all you want for free!!
