**I can't believe the nightmare that has become life since they have moved in. This is one of THE worst mistakes that I have made in a long time. I am having to keep things locked and well please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We're considering leaving for Christmas. I try to stay gone as much as possible right now. We will be giving them a letter to vacate the property. It makes me sick to my stomach to do this, as I fear for the welfare of the children since there is drug use involved, but I can't continue like this. **We're got back, things went bad again so we are in the process of eviction. Jessica has an option of staying with the children or leaving the children as long as she gets help. Mike is fighting the eviction...unbelievable! If I recounted the details of the past two months you would have thought that I was writing a novel...this too shall pass!
I have been made aware of issues with mail that I thought had gone out so please let me know if you didn't receive from me. I will also be making contact with anyone that I feel may have been during that window. I am so sorry. Life sure has a way of jumping up and getting in the way lol. I am no longer keeping Caleb and Landon so that will be freeing me significantly after I help get them settled back in with their Dad. It has been so tough on them in many ways so please keep them in your prayers. .**
My name is Kathy. I am married to the Steve, love of my life. I have 5 grown children (ages 33 - 24) and 8 grandchildren (12 - 3mos). My daughter, Jessica and her family just moved back home. Exciting times trying to get everyone settled and in some kind of routine. Please bear with me! We have 2 cats. Puffy is 13 & Sassy is 9. We also have a chiweenie (Dachshund/Chihuahua) named Gracie.
Jessica has a dachshund named Oscar.
I love being outside. Steve and I hunt (ok, Steve hunts and I tag along for the exercise and view lol), fish, hike, and camp (even in winter. I love to work in the yard and garden. I love the smell of Gardenias, Honey Suckle and Magnolias when they start blooming, but plant many flowers in my yard and really enjoy visiting botanical gardens or seeing wild flowers when we hike.
I also love crafts of any kind. I sew, make ATCs, scrapbook, cross stitch,do plastic canvas and crochet mostly. I love patterns and material, of course. I enjoy browsing the local thrift or "antique" stores. We love to travel and see new places.
I love Jesus so anything with a scripture is always a favorite. His goodness never ceases to amaze me. Most of the reading that I do is books by Joyce Meyer, Max Lucado, Joel Osteen and similar.
I listen to Contemporary Christian like Sidewalk Prophets, Jaime Grace, Toby Mac, Mercy Me, Natalie Grant, Crystal Lewis, and many more. I love to sing! I love musicI love 70s & 80s music and a little country at times.
I love The Black List, Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time, and Scandal. I enjoy watching Joyce Meyer and Jesse Duplantis too. I really am enjoying Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.
I love all kinds of animals, cats, dogs, bears. I love to watch the birds at the bird feeder from my sun room. I love cardinals & hummingbirds. I have several hummingbird feeders around the yard. I love flowers, butterflies & dragonflies.
I collect angels, cats, thimbles ~ Hubby says I collect everything.
I like: Postcards - all kinds! Coffee Tea Notecards, Stationary, Pens, Notepads, Stickers & Washi tape. .
Recipes, especially healthy ones and recipe cards. I don't like anything too spicy hot. I still bake for my kids, grandkids and other gatherings, but try to find healthy alternatives whenever possible.
Dark Chocolate (I generally have two pieces with coffee each afternoon). I also like sugar free mints or hard candy when I exercise. I occasionally enjoy caramel, sea salt chocolate, peanut butter M & Ms.
Emphera for ATCs, scrap booking or other crafts. I like Vintage graphics. Stamps & stamp pads. I love to hear about interesting techniques you have used in your creations.
Fat Quarters or material pieces, ribbon, lace or interesting buttons.
Charms, and beads
I love anything homemade. I would love to see a mug rug. Something else to try lol.
Mary Engelbreit, Debbie Mumm, Sue Dreamer & Precious Moments
I am doing my kitchen with a Debbie Mumm Border of Watering Cans. The colors are burgundy, gold, with a little green & blue.
I like to walk in the early mornings when everything's fresh and crisp or at twilight when there seems to be a hush over things.
I like to chat with a neighbor I meet walking or working in the yard. I can talk to about anyone that I meet. Can't get enough of children laughing and playing especially on a warm summer day. I tend to be positive, upbeat and a little playful.
Always love to hear my grandbabies yell Nana and run to meet me...or not want me to leave lol.
I use paint shop pro and do a little graphic design. I was pretty addicted at one time. I use an email manager called incredimail.
I don't like dragons, realistic snakes, bugs( except for the cute ladybug type) or rodents, AC, witches, sorcerers, wizards, skulls, dark or gothic type things. I am not a big fan of Halloween except maybe the lighter side like the children or cats ( I love giving out candy and seeing their costumes and excited faces). I celebrate fall instead. I do like light steampunk that's not dark or revealing.
