High Five for Friday

So glad today is Friday!  It has been one more week!  I hope all of you are having a great Friday.  I will be linking up with Lauren @ From My Grey Desk.  She has an awesome link party there every Friday.  It’s the place to be to give a High Five For Friday.  So, with no further delay here is my H54F:

What would October be without pumpkins?

We went, with a group of friends from church, to a heritage day at a plantation.  The weather was wonderful.  Yes, it was fall.  Yes, there were pumpkins.

Indian performing a native hoop dance

We saw Indians performing native dances.  This one was a hoop dance.  He made things like a butterfly, a bird, an alligator, & Mickey Mouse with the hoops.  It was entertaining.

Miss Neenee doin’ a little cotton pickin’

Miss Neenee found the cotton patch.  She was so happy that she got her bag filled up.  If this were for real & she had to do this, probably not that much fun!

RIde to work

If you can look past my dirty windshield, you will see some pretty amazing fall colors.  This is a little spot in the road on my drive in to work.  I have been wondering where fall was…looks like it’s on the side of the highway here.  It’s been warm in Mississippi this week.  However, looks like fall colors are here, so where’s the cool weather??

One 3rd grader’s pledge of alleigance to the flag

Each week Miss Neenee brings home papers for me to look at.  As I was thumbing through her work, this one caught my eye.  They were writing out the pledge of alleigance.  Her’s went as follows….and to the Republic for Riches stand….  Well, you can see above there were other slight misspellings, too.  I will be keeping this one for the scrapbook!
We have more fall activities planned for this weekend.  We are attending a girl scout fall gathering tonight, I have a 5k on Saturday, & Miss Neenee is going to a fall festival with a friend on Saturday, as well.  So, what are you doing this weekend??
Be sure to link in with Lauren!

High Five For Friday

Once again, a week down & here we are giving another, “High Five For Friday!”  I hope your week was wonderful!  Following is my H54F:

Happy Nearsighted Miss Neenee

Introducing the new & improved Miss Neenee!  What a great week to be in 3rd grade & to finally “see” what’s been happening. 🙂  I’m sorry, it’s not funny.  She can’t help it I am not a good listener.

 Miss Neenee & Mr. Sweetie at Green Market

Green Market is a place where local vendors set up with homemade items to sell.  It is once a month in our town.  They always have plenty of cute things to buy!  Had a great time last weekend.

Mr. Sweetie more interested in pumpkins than posing

Cute fall stuff

Thursday night groceries


On Thursday night my husband grills.  This week it was pork tenderloin, cabbage, & sweet potatoes.  I will be eating left overs today.  It was that good.


Quesadilla casserole. Can you say that 5 times fast?

One night this week I made quesadilla casserole.  It was the 1st time I had made it. It turned out great & did not last long!








Sorry, I know everybody’s sick of hearing about the election.  But this is how I feel this week.

Hope you enjoyed my crazy H54F.  My blog was acting up- that’s why the pictures look so out of proportion & everywhere.  (Or could it be my techologically challenged self? Nah.)I hope you have a great Friday! Go on over to From My Grey Desk & link up with Lauren.  I have been linking in to her amazing party!  It is always a fun time!

What are your plans this weekend??

H54F High Five For Friday! WHOO HOO!

I cannot say enough how glad I am that it is Friday!  It did not come soon enough.  I hope everybody had a great week.  The weather was a little cooler, here, in Mississippi.  However, today is supposed to be in the 80s (Fall, please come back anytime you get ready).  Here is my High Five For Friday- hope you enjoy it:

Miss Neenee picked out her 1st pair of glasses

Miss Neenee came home from school saying she could not see the board.  Since I have diagnosed her as a hypochondriac a long time ago, I thought, “We will see.” (No pun intended).  I made her an eye doctor appointment, short story is she was right, I was wrong.  She picked out her 1st pair of glasses.  She is so excited to be nearsighted!  Probably the most amazing thing that’s happened to her all year, (to hear her tell it).

Our Bible class door that Miss Neenee & I created

Our Bible class door needed some decoration.  Miss Neenee & I came up with this (which I really stole from Pinterest).  Our friend, Mrs. Cindy Lou Who, helped with some of the decorations, too. 🙂  note to self-maybe it’s not a good idea to talk about Bible class & stealing during the same post.

Red beans & rice

You know it could not be my H54F without something good to eat.  This week I made red beans & rice.  They were so yummy.  With the cool weather, I love warm comfort food.  This was a slam dunk.

EA- stressed out, chemistry loathing, optometry majoring, hard working, Christian young lady

Yep, she’s as pretty on the inside, as on the outside, too!  This girl has had a week at college.  She is an optometry major, in her 1st semester.  She is not loving all the science right at the moment, but is going to make it work.  She holds down a part time job, & listen to this: She left yesterday, going on a mission trip with our church until Sunday.  Precious does not begin to cover it, for this sweet middle child of mine!

You said it Jayzee…..

Thank goodness it’s Friday!  I don’t care what problems I have, they can take a back seat until Monday!

I am linking in with Lauren at From My Grey Desk.  Go on over & see what’s happening.  I have met several new friends at her High Five For Friday link parties.  They are somewhat awesome!

So, what are your plans for this weekend??


High Five For Friday!

I am so excited to be back giving a “High Five For Friday!”  Here are my High Fives:

EA aka one of my college kids, helping Miss Neenee with Math homework-without me even asking!

So, there I was hurrying around the kitchen, cooking supper, trying to do 3rd grade multiplication (oh I have nightmares of times tables when I was in 3rd grade), & there comes my sweet EA.  She can sense my despair & jumps right in to help.  (Either that or she was ready for me to get dinner finished!)  Either way, what an angel! 🙂

Attended Friends & Family Day at the church where I grew up.

My wonderful uncle called me & invited me to Friends & Family day at the church where I grew up.  So, yeah, we went & saw our family &  our friends (who are like family!)  My Daddy preached at this church for 20 years.  My Mama & grandparents went to this church & are buried there.  Love going to visit with this precious church family!

Steak fresh off the grill!

Every Thursday my husband is off work.  Every Thursday he puts something on the grill.  Last night it was steak.  So yummy!

Before the cupcake was devoured!

EA had a birthday this week.  Somebody got invited to the party.  Where somebody ate ALL of his chocolate cupcake.  Then, somebody got a bath right after that!

My cupcake from the birthday party! WHOO HOO!

Thankfully, somebody did not eat all the cupcakes!  This one was mine!  Yea!!

I appreciate you stopping in to see my H54F!  I hope everyone had a great week!  I have to be going now, because I should be washing clothes!!


High Five For Friday!! H54F

Alright!  Here it is.  My first “High Five For Friday”.  It is just a little something telling 5 things that have happened recently, that make me happy.  Hopefully, this will be one of many posts of this kind.  There are many other bloggers that also participate in this little party!  I will be hopefully linked in with “My Grey Desk” blog.  She has a list of other bloggers that give a “High Five For Friday”  Hope you love it!

Miss Neenee’s 3rd grade “Recycling Project”

1.  Miss Neenee had a “Recycling Project” to do using garbage (just phrasing what the note sent home said!) It is an owl bank.   We used a clothes detergent bottle.  She painted the front pink & the back turquoise.  We used a cut toliet paper roll & painted water bottle tops for the eyes, a painted milk jug top for the beak, trash bag twist ties for the wings & bow.  For the feet, we used thread spools painted yellow.  However, the Miss is holding the owl by the feet, so you can’t see it.  We had a good time making this for school.

Grandbaby bathing…

2.  Got to keep my grandbaby & of course he played in the sink!

Fried potatoes & fried okra (my favorite anything is fried!)

3.  My Daddy’s birthday was Saturday.  So, he came over Sunday after church & we pigged out on southern comfort food.  Fried potatoes & fried okra were on the menu.  Along with meatloaf, shells & cheese, deviled eggs, blackeyed peas, & cornbread..shut yo’ mouth!

Some good bedtime reading!

4. Everybody has to have some good bedtime reading.  Miss Neenee & I prefer Fancy Nancy (that’s fancy for would rather have).  If you read Fancy Nancy, you just totally got that last sentence. 🙂

Awesome Train C.D.

5.  Got this awesome Train c.d. from my hubs, just because.  He’s a keeper.

Hope everybody has a great Friday! H54F!
